One that you just didn't get the love for?

 

For me it was 'There Will be Blood'. 


BBC for the most part is pretty damn good.

American Hustle

 

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams walking around swaying topside is enough for an Oscar IMO.

Nocturnal Animals was pretty terrible.
This is my signature. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.

Even that couldn't save it. I almost fell asleep in the theater. I NEVER do that. That movie was that bad.

This year alone, I'd have to say The Dark Tower. Huge hype, big budget, absolutely died.

As a genre, everybody thought the R-rated comedy was back. Not so much.

As a franchise, seriously don't get any of the love for any of the Lego movies.

And how f****** much did they have to pay Sir Patrick Stewart to play poop in the Emoji Movie?

Another great movie!

 

Pulp Fiction for me. More recently, Wonder Woman.

Good choice. God all of Hollywood was falling all over themselves to promote that movie and afterward nobody really had much good to say about it. Wasn't Spacey in that too?

Right? I was excited about it and all the hype it was getting. That ruined me for listening to all these critic reviews. Haven't trusted them since

LA LA Land
Neither actor can dance or sing. The tune he kept playing was simplistic and boring. I love them as actors and as a screen couple. The story was decent but overrated.

That's what I heard. Saturday Night Live even did a skit about that and how you weren't supposed to admit that La La Land was just average at best.

Also I came here to post American Hustle AND

 

Burn After Reading   "its the Cohen brothers!......"  ..... "who?" that was such a piece of garbaqge movie I laughed 1 time. A scene where George Clooney is furiously chopping carrots for no reason and Im pretty sure I only laughed because we were so fed up with how terrible it was by then


Stuck in the process.....

The Revenant is another one. Beautiful scenery, but little dialogue and predictable story.

Gandhi and Titanic will always be the most overrated pieces of crap.  


You know we're sitting on four million pounds of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts built by the lowest bidder. Makes you feel good, doesn't it?

Besides The Deer Hunter, where she had a small role, name a great Meryl Streep movie. So anything she's been in is overrated. Not saying horrible, but overrated.
