    I didn't like "What Dreams May Come" either. I liked the idea of it... but not the execution of it.

    It just didn't fit together rationally, and many of the emotions seemed to be "super-emo" sentimentalism rather than real complex emotions that were earned by the script and acting. I either couldn't identify with it, or I felt emotionally manipulated by the huge predictable plot twists.

    Mulholland Drive, the monster behind the dumpster. I always get freaked out by that scene.

    As i walk out of the theatre I exclaim, "Wow. That was really boring." and then notice others choking back tears.

    I tried watching it a second time (did I miss something?) and it was as boring the second time as the first.

    Kevin Smith has turned to the dark side (or baby-shit brown side).

    Along with Cop Out Infra I also hated Clerks II and Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Its as if he had the art of making dumb funny (a la Beavis and Butthead/Robot Chicken) but he lost it. It feels like when your favorite heavy metal or punk band gets popular, makes a video and then totally sells out to the general bubblegum populace with drivel.

    The first twenty minutes or so of the movie were excellent, actually. (tension, mystery, suspense, fear.)
    ...Then the movie went somewhere else.

    IMO, Shyamalan spent two years honing Sixth Sense, working out all the kinks, and it definitely shows in the finished work. He also only gave himself a small cameo that was appropriate for an unknown director, and he played that part well.

    Since then, his ego has just gotten bigger, his cameos have gotten larger, his pre-production efforts have lessened, and his finished movies have gotten progressively worse. He can still create scenes of power (the first few minutes of The Happening were also excellent and eerie as hell)... but typically his movies lose focus as well as a sense of what a real payoff needs to be to create a sense of completion in the viewer; with the Happening, the main characters merely seemed pushed through the story from behind... and then it ends deus ex machina. It's kind of hard to be invested in characters where their efforts meant nothing and they were just pawns of the plot. The audience was forced into a very passive role.

    I didn't even bother with The Last Airbender. Even my teenage son said it was so bad he and his friends actually heckled all the plot and character holes during the entire movie.

    The best thing that could happen to Shyamalan at this point would be to lose his Hollywood access and credibility and have to make simple movies on a low budget that HAD to be good if he were to succeed. Right now he just seems to indulge his fancies wherever they take him.

    Pretty much any movie that doesn't stimulate me. If it doesn't make me think about the plot, or at least with different film angles and animation or anything dealing with art that I can think about how they made it and their inspirations, etc. then I get bored, disinterested, and then either fall asleep during the movie, or start making smart-ass comments about what happens next (if it's overly predictable) and other bullshit and piss people off to entertain myself. I paid 8 bucks for some sort of entertainment, might as well get it.

    I absolutely loathed 2012, and another movie I can't think of right now (I think it might've been Avatar) solely on the length of it. Half of that movie I was just like 'LET THE WORLD END ALREADY IT ALREADY LASTED AN ETERNITY THROUGH AN APOCALYPSE KILL EVERYONE!'

    Other things are movies without substance, and any sort of movie based off of a series of shows or a book that just butchers the original content of the book/series. Some of these include some Harry Potter movies, The Last Airbender, and others I can't think of right now. Didn't even bother with Twilight, considering I couldn't even read ten pages of it because that bitch pissed me off so much, and then read Wikipedia about the plot, and knew if I read more of it, or bothered to see the movies, I'd be pissed beyond belief.

    Ugh, I agree with this. It was terrible! I feel the same way about Signs. I was like, "Really? THAT'S what the creature looks like?" So anticlimactic.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    For a movie like that to work there must be some moral tension, but as the hostages began having a roundtable discussion of the evils of healthcare it became clear the movie was pure propaganda.

    Hated The Piano. Boring and anticlimactic, and not the least romantic. Not sure why it was so hyped. I kept waiting for it to get better, and kept waiting to see an Oscar caliber performance by Holly Hunter that didn't come.

    Hated The Way of the Gun. So much pointless gratuitous violence that it actually made me angry. I would have walked out if I hadn't been there with friends.

    Hated Life is Beautiful. More formulaic and saccharin than anything on The Hallmark Channel.

    Hate anything by Nora Ephron or Nancy Meyers. Might as well just call it "Middle-Aged Woman Porn."
