American Beauty is, also, terrible.
Slumdog Millionaire, No Country For Old Men, Crash, and Million Dollar Baby (all Best Picture winners this past decade) are all bad.

Probably not too unpopular opinions around here.

Not unpopular, just idiotic.

Yee of the soft skin.

It has nothing to do with soft skin, it has to do with being civil and keeping this a friendly place. Referring to people or their opinions as idiotic is uncalled for, and people who do as such will quickly become people I don't feel the need to pay attention to anymore.

Unacceptable, Bondo.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Hard for me to argue with these:

Every Lord Of The Rings film is terrible.
Aside from Terminator 2, James Cameron has not made a good film.
Aside from Blade Runner, Ridley Scott has not made a good film.
Aside from Anchorman, Judd Apatow has not been apart of a good film.
The Spider-Man franchise is terrible.
Crash, and Million Dollar Baby (all Best Picture winners this past decade) are all bad.
A Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday The 13th, Halloween, and films of that nature are not good.
Apocalypse Now is Coppola's best film.

...but I still love American Beauty and Slumdog Millionaire, but I'm very fast and loose with my "great musical score" discount...

I just want to be clear that what I said was not directed at Gotham, I welcome him to the forum and enjoy people with unconventional views, even if I disagree on the particulars, and certainly hold plenty myself (as I think all of us do in our own ways). Whether or not it would have salvaged it, I should have had a ;) in there because I wasn't being serious in my comment on the fact that at this forum it isn't actually that unpopular to claim that American Beauty, Slumdog Millionaire and Crash (all top-100 films for me) are "terrible."

Anyway, I'm sorry if my comment was not taken in the manner in which I intend it. Still, I'm not sure Bill should be the one lecturing me on decorum.  ::)

Since I am new to this board, I have quite the list.

Every Star Wars film is terrible.   Agree
Every Lord Of The Rings film is terrible.  Agree
American Beauty is, also, terrible.  Pretty much agree now, but not when i first watched it
Aside from Terminator 2, James Cameron has not made a good film.  Close, I do like the Abyss except the ending
Aside from Blade Runner, Ridley Scott has not made a good film.  This should read "Aside from Alien"
Aside from Anchorman, Judd Apatow has not been apart of a good film. I can't remember Anchorman
The Spider-Man franchise is terrible.  Agree
Psycho is boring. 
Slumdog Millionaire, No Country For Old Men, Crash, and Million Dollar Baby (all Best Picture winners this past decade) are all bad.  Wrong on NCfoM
Shakespeare In Love deserved the Oscar over Saving Private RyanDidn't see either of them
 A Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday The 13th, Halloween, and films of that nature are not good.
Apocalypse Now is Coppola's best film.  Agree

I have many more as well.


How can they be unpopular, they are mostly right:)  But I am more curious what you actually like now.

This isn't unpopular, and really, isn't it the point of those flicks?
It may not be unpopular, but it's wrong.  ;)

I honestly had a good time watching Jason X. It was because I laughed a lot rather than feel frightened, but the end result was the same: I had a good time.

Aye, that's what I meant. It's a good time, though it may not be scary, which is what I imagined the intention was. In any case, watching Freddy Vs. Jason with a bunch of friends was excellent.

True for the sequels, not so true for the originals. With exceptions on both sides, of course.
