    Snatch.

    It was great when I was thirteen
    and any film with bareknuckle
    fighting, accents that I wasn't
    accustomed to hearing, and guns
    could hold my attention. But
    revisiting it... it's almost literally
    you're average cliche shoot em
    up flick. C+ average film

    The King's Speech, and pretty much any other movie about british royalty.

    Gladiator. Yeah I said it. Stupid mtv style jump cuts in every fight scene. Overrated garbage started that trend.

    12 Years a Slave, Pulp Fiction, Mad Max: Fury Road, any of the original Star Wars movies - though I can understand those as technical achievements, at least.

    One of the most highly regarded movies of all time and it bored the piss outta me; The Godfather. Agreed on Gladiator and also pretty much everything by Chris Nolan with the exception of Memento.

    No need to insult Joanna like a 12 year old because a poster with her AV doesn't like your opinion in movies. I expect better of you.

    Scarface. Not that its not good, its just that I saw it late and it had been so hyped for me... it just failed to live up to it.
