    Do we really mean "sucks" or who is overrated? I see lots of people qualifying their criticisms. To me, sucks=no redeeming qualities.

    I don't like stand-up comics who seem to completely rely on angry politics for their jokes. That seemed to be George Carlin's gimmick towards the end. I also think Al Franken and Janeane Garafolo and Lewis Black suck for the same reason.

    If their critical acclaim is WAY out of whack to their talent, they count. But, as before, the people who have no talent at all should be left out. There should be some controversy and argument going on.

    EDIT: I'll add "popularity" along with "critical acclaim." Like Black Eyed Peas, for instance. 8-10 years ago, they were a decent party-rap/positive hip-hop crew. Now, they are a pestilence on American society.

    Ten years ago I didn't give a shit about these people. I independently discovered that they suck. Forgive me for not being as scintillatingly original as you. As for Ann Coulter and Pat Buchanan, they would've been Nazi sympathizers in the 40's.

    Anyway... some more:

    Wizard of Oz: I can't stand this flick... it's kitsch and the acting's terrible.

    Sound of Music: Another film which is so saccharine it makes me want to puke every time I see it.

    New Age: this is a broader indictment of the movement of which chopra and rajneesh are a part... it sucks, there's nothing deeply original about it, except for the fact that they take perfectly good philosophies and make them even more bound up with superstition and meaningless fluff. This includes Theosophy.

    Dana Carvey films post-Wayne's World: did anyone see Master of Disguise?

    Samuel Huntington and the Clash of Civilizations theory: all rhetoric and little justifiable substance. He's helping to create a clash of civilizations by asserting it into being.

    Wendy Doniger and her students: the worst cases of sensationalist writing about India... it's all the worse because she's a Harvard professor with great command over Sanskrit. Kripal, a student, doesn't follow any of the rules of academia when writing.

    SNL: it's not been funny since the early nineties... I tried watching it in the early knots (2000's) and hardly cracked a smile once in several hours. Maybe it's just me... but I've heard this from other people too...

    Same goes for Mad TV... just not funny...

    I enjoyed films like "Spirited Away" and "Fist of the North Star"... obviously "Akira"... and then there's Hentai...



    ooooooooooooooooohhhhhh.... I got a big one.

    Bollywood Hindi films: aside from the occasional exception, Bollywood films are extremely poorly-acted, wretchedly scripted, badly edited, loooooooooooooooooooooong, and unoriginal. The only thing that somewhat redeems them are some of the songs, though the music videos are more often than not quite callow and most of the songs are quite forgettable (as with pop music everywhere). I can't stand the fact that India's so strongly associated with Bollywood... it makes me sick... (I already ranted about this in a post several months ago... I think pure_mercury remembers... no one responded because I think I rambled on and on about how deplorable Indian films have been since Bengali directors like Satyajit Ray and a few others).

    Of all of these, "The League of Nations" is the most wonderfully unusual choice for suck.

    Why Bobby Fischer? Since he disappeared?

    Meh... it was my first anime film and maybe I'm remembering it more fondly than it ought to be... but the key is I enjoyed it. : )

    And some are hilariously bad. What's the one where the muscley chap dies, so his girlfriend moves away only to find someone who looks exactly the same. That film goes through like six different genres. The martial arts at the end had me rolling about on the floor.
