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.

 

 

Doubt is a great movie but may hit a little close to home for ya

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

 

 

Pulp Fiction

 

 

Napoleon Dynamite.

 

A laughless hour into it, I changed the channel.

The most recent of those movies is 13 years ago, so I feel I'm on pretty solid ground saying that none of them qualify as 'recent'.

Depends on how old you are.  To my 98 year old grand father 1990 was recent history.


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?

Cool, let me know what his handle is, so I can give him an exception on the "recent"  qualification.   :thumbsup:

I've always said they should make a pulp fiction 2 just to show Marcellus telling his guys what happened.

M: hey pipe hitting n-words go get your ###### and we have to go kill this guy

HPHN: alright, what happened?

M: this mother fvcker raped me!

HPHN: what happened??

You know the hard pipe hitting guys lose respect for you as the kingpin after they know you got raped. I'd love to see that, even if it's only a blue ray extra

The ending is anti climactic. He just ends up working at Arby's.

I have that on my overrated list. A caricature of mob flicks, and the end didn't follow the rule for suspension of disbelief (that is, they did not reasonably establish that those events would happen).

one of my favorites although I understand many peoples dislike toward it. It was basically set up to be Scorsese's award winner and featured a rock star cast. I guess if someone is a mob movie snob, they wouldn't like it.

 

as for the end, im not sure I get what you mean there. It was farily obvious Matt Damon was going to die... and while i'll admit to not really seeing the set up for Leo getting popped, I was telling my friend halfway through that Marky Mark was definitely killing Damon. From the moment Damon starts rapidly rising in the ranks and gets put on that same case, Wahlberg's character knows something's up. Plus, once Leo leaves the girlfriend the tape evidence, you know Wahlberg is going to find out and get revenge.

A lot of bad choices in here. Some of you guys have no idea what a good movie is.



The last one I saw that I thought was truly focking terrible despite getting lots of accolades was Birdman. Seriously, what a self-indulgent piece of garbage.

Lala Land had that possibility too but I think it was just creative enough to avoid total sh1tshow status
