    To me The English Patient was like two different movies; one where Ralph Fiennes and Kristin Scott-Thomas are in the desert, and one where he and Juliette Binoche are at the country estate and he's recuperating. I liked the latter, but the former put me to sleep.

    I have to say " Sliver" was the biggest, suckiest, most un-erotic creepfest I was forced to sit through. You would think that Sharon Stone taking her britches off in a restaurant would have some sex appeal, but you would be so wrong.

    And the movie " Mad Dog and Glory" had a awkward, profoundly embarrassing sex scene with Robert DeNiro and Uma Thurman that made me flee the room. He looked like he was trying to clear a drain.

    Agree, and agree. 'Sliver' (along with Basic Instinct) was just such a gratuitous trash fest. And I've pretty much blocked 'Mad Dog & Glory' from my mind because of the very reason you mentioned *shudder*.

    ***Titanic SPOILERS below if there is anyone left who hasn't seen it***

    'Titanic' is one of those movies I'm so conflicted about. A friend and I avoided that movie when it first came out because of all the hype, then we were bored and said "Ah screw it" and went to see it. I kept rolling my eyes at the cheesiness, but I loved the time period and the sound effects of the sinking in the movie theater were so frickin' scary. By the end we were crying our butts off and we wound up seeing it in the theater five more times.

    It's one of those movies I hate myself for being attached to because I constantly roll my eyes when I watch it, and half the time I can't wait for the boat to sink, lol. I never cry when Jack kicks the bucket, but I always cry when they pan over the photographs of all the stuff she did that they talked about. Then I feel like a total sucker. I could be all like "I hate that movie" but that would be a lie. Saying I love it is a lie too. I'm eternally conflicted (and I love making fun of it). Guilty pleasure I suppose.

    I always get the impression Gone with the Wind is supposed to be romantic, but Scarlett and Rhett are two narcissists that you can't really cheer for, when it's all said and done. They both kind of deserve to be miserable.

    The Piano is an abomination. I wish I had a time machine, so I could go back and choose not to watch it.

    Notting Hill was TERRIBLE on every level. There was nothing remotely likable about Julia Roberts' character in that movie.

    Twilight seems like co-dependency and control issues, taken by 15 year olds to be what true love looks like.

    Hey I didn't say I hated the movie. I love the English Patient as well, I just didn't like the ending, to me, it was not romantic. It was lacking in.. something.

    and I didn't like seeing Raph Fiennes sad. xD!!

    I don't even know what to bring up. The bulk of chick flicks (exemplified by "Sleepless in Seattle") bore me. Usually I find it easier to mention those that I actually enjoyed.

    (For example, "My Best Friend's Wedding" was witty and actually revolves around the lead character finally growing up, rather than getting the guy. And I was kind of surprised to find myself enjoying, on lesser levels but still enjoying, "50 First Dates" and "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days." If there's a basic level sweetness to the movie, I can sometimes make it work.)

    But usually I find romance in drama, rather than romance as its own genre. ("The Remains of the Day" for a tragedy, for example.)

    Agreed on Notting Hill. Ick.

    I actually enjoyed Twilight... but I never expected the romance to be anything more than teen-age celibate angst. (Vampires without sex?) Basically, for me, it was one of the movies that was marginally interesting if I just took it at face value and didn't expect it to represent mature relationships or to be more than it was; I expected it to be utterly awful and it managed to avoid that.
