Southland Tales is so terrible it made every other movie I watch worse.

The sequels have nothing to do with this. I thought it was awful. The dialogue was lacking, and it was too predictable. There were maybe one or two(at best) talented actors actually performing well. Overall, I thought it was cheesy, and cliche. Or maybe I'm just immune to tragic love stories that somehow involve lots of black, and men wearing makeup because of my lacking generation.

Eh? If you're watching movies like The Crow for the dialogue you're probably doing something wrong. The dialogue in the Crow isn't particularly awful anyway. There's a few bits that are even good, I always liked the bit with the Milton quote. Oh, and pretty much everything Top Dollar says, because he's so fucking over the top. Which is really the point of The Crow. It's very over the top. It revels in being completely fucking over the top. That's one of the major changes from the comic (the other being that Eric isn't quite so utterly, frothingly insane in the film*), which was quite gritty and realistic. But I rather think the studios balked out at the idea of a guy in pure white make-up slaughtering a load of black crack dealers, which is why they re-invented Top Dollar and his gang as some sort of insane goth mafia. Then they made Eric a rock musician (He's some sort of not that well off white collar worker in the comic). Then they turned everything up a few more notches, and it works. If you don't get it, that's fine, but to blame the movies popularity on 'Hot Topic' is ridiculous. I've never even seen a Hot Topic store in my life, and you don't have to wear black to like it. It's a solid action flick with bucketloads of style.

*I kinda wish they'd had some of that sort of dialogue in the film though "I AM PILOT ERROR! I AM FOETAL DISTRESS! I AM MORPHINE FOR A WOODEN LEG!"

Not to mention the fact that the movie was big long before Hot Topic was. If one has to bullshit a superficial reason for the movie being well liked in order to justify their own piss poor taste in movies, blame it on Lee's untimely death on the set. The Crow is a fun movie.

I'm sorry, but I personnaly am not blaming hot topic on the Crow.. I just think that the Crow was a flick for that kind of audience.  An audience I have very little patience for.  Gothic in filmmaking is fine.  (Just look at Tim Burton, nice director, casts his bestfriend and girlfriend too much.  But hey, so does Sam Raimi.)  But that movie had me wishing I was a goth, so i could get away with cutting myself. 

In conclusion (Why does this feel like a book report?)  Did, I think the Crow was way overrated.  Yep, no doubt about it.
Does that mean that other people can't like it?  Of course not, you can like that movie... Love it even... But you might as well just shop at Hot Topic and stop half assing your gothness.

By half ass i ment act like a goth and watch shit like the crow and not be willing to pay ridiculous somes of money at hot topic and become one of those cookie cutter goths.

Which by the way pisses me off.  Cause wasnt the whole point of being a goth the fact that you were different (And thought u were a vampire)?  And yet now for like $100 bucks you can buy the exact same look as every other goth.... Kinda makes all goths look like sell-outs.  Buying into an image cause they think it makes em unique.

So, what you are trying to say is...that if you buy and wear clothes from Hot Topic, you're a failed goth. But, if you don't do it, then you're a lazy goth? What are you supposed to do then? Buy the clothes but not wear them?

Tsk Tsk... So close and yet so far Sox.

I said if you like the Crow and dont shop at Hot Topic your a half assed goth.
But all Goths fail because the goth movement died when Hot Topic turned goth into mainstream.

And for the record... I am just joking.  Goths have plenty to offer the world.
Like pale, aerodynamically curvasious, women wearing tight corsets.  And.............. And............. and......... well shoot.  I think thats it.

I saw a Hot Topic when I was in Vegas, so I know finally know what you guys are referring to. I stood outside the store and laughed at the goth kids skipping school to hang out in there for two minutes then went and got myself a new pair on converse shoes without the ridiculous mark-up.

This.

The only reason you know the name of that movie is because of Hot Topic scenesters who think bad 80s movies about love, and lots of black, and revenge remind them of the angst they feel when their mom and dads refuse to buy them those awesome bondage pants.

That is where things began.

I'm assuming you feel this way about most of the films that have come out of hollywood in the last 20 years as well. You've really just described them all.

Jurassic Park 3. I don't even have to justify this but I will anyway and I can do it with a quote.

I never saw Jurassic Park 3 because I had already gone to see the flaming pile of crap that was Jurassic Park 2, which makes that series one of the few instances that prove that I am indeed capable of rudimentary learning. I actually nearly had a tantrum in the theater over JP2; I thought the goddam thing must be about over and that's when it turned out the damn dinosaurs got off the damn island. I would have walked right out but I still had to give some people a ride home. I was so pissed off.

When I was in college I used to get the bus back home whatever weekends I decided to go visit my family, and the bus company I travelled with used to show movies on the journey. However whatever they screened tended to be whatever crap no on else would take from the local video rental store. As a consequence I saw some of the worst movies I have ever been subjected to whilst trapped in a large metal tube with 50 strangers bouncing over the backroads of Ireland.

The two worst I saw were:

Driven: the absolutely awful Stallone champcar/indycar racing film. Just woeful, a cliché ridden piece of garbage with no redeeming features what so ever.

Dragonfly: without doubt the single worst film I have ever seen. It’s a Kevin Costner romantic melodrama, that is so bad I actually can’t remember that much about it. I have blocked it out like a traumatic childhood experience.

it's rare for me to find a movie that i think is absolutely terrible. i'm the type of person that can usually find at least one thing i like about the things i hate.

that being said, Plan 9 From Outer Space

and the remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre

ugh.

Now wait a minute, Plan 9 was awesome!  I mean, once you know the backstory, it quickly because hillarious!

You seem to be taking a lot of offense at this. I am very glad you've never been to a Hot Topic, take solace in that, but the young, gothy pre-teens are probably the largest majority of people who've ever even heard of that trash. I don't doubt that you could have possibly heard of The Crow otherwise, I'm saying it's popularity is almost entirely based on how many T-shirts Hot Topic managed to sell.

By the way, I never said you have to wear black to like it. I'm saying the kids that think it's totally cool to wear lots of black and too much eyeliner LOVE it because of Eric Draven's tragic love, and goofy make-up.

I don't want to be crucified.


I just thought it was an awful movie. Half-assed dialogue, half-assed actors, half-assed action, half-assed plot.


That's my opinion, not a personal attack on anyone here.

Would I have done good if I threw out Spice World?

Spice World, sucks, right? We hate the Spice Girls cause they can't act...or sing?

Or is that just another superficial explanation for why the movie got popular because I have piss poor taste in movies, or something to that extent...? =P

KRAA! The Sea Monster. It's a family channel godzilla. There's one scene where the monster is stomping around the obvious made from painted plywood buildings and the camera switches and Kraa litterally bursts out of a building. No idea how he got in it, or what happened to the interior, but gods damn it if it wasn't funny as hell.

Also Afro Whores Volume 14. Me and my buddy were rehearsing our metal band and his wacky ex-punk dad(I swear the guy is a character in a bad sitcom) busts into the room with a dusty VHS tape in hand and yells overtop our song. "HEY GUYS LOOK WHAT I FOUND IN THE BASEMENT! AFRO-WHORES 14!"
So we grab a few beers and pop it in, it was the worst porn ever. I mean some of these chicks are obviously off the street, and there was cheesy camera tricks, like where the scene switches via a big blocky star zooming into the screen. 0_0'

See, what people are taking offense to is your tone. You're coming across as someone who is playing at being even-handed despite making dismissive, sweeping generalizations combined with implications that to like the movie is to be associated with a group you appear to have a bias against. The impression I end up being left with is that you're either blissfully unaware of the implications of your communication style or else you're just rather stubborn and willfully inconsiderate. Beyond that, Khar simply takes issue when people say things that are quite frankly wrong. The movie did rather well; it was popular outside of the goth set and garnered many favorable reviews. It's actually one of the movies along with Batman that slowly yet inexorably led to stylish comic book features being greenlit for movie production again. None of that is enough to "prove" that it's a good movie or anything, but it does make your contention that mall goths are wholly responsible for its continued popularity rather absurd. Everything else you said about the film's actual quality doesn't particularly bother me.

Well then, my apologies for coming off as snide, or condescending, if that is the impression you were getting.

I was simply putting my own personal reasons for disliking the film. In my opinion, I think the movie does well NOW because of a particular scene that I dislike worships it so.

I never suggested anyone was wrong, only that I completely disagree.

We're all being a bit confrontational, no?

What is it about Hot Topic that everyone hates again? I mean, I don't really shop there but I have before and the people that work there have always been really nice and they have this fundraiser thing that supports the arts and stuff. So what that they cater to a specific group, that's what all stores do. It's a retail based corporation. It's a complete no brainer that they are in it for the money. Also, this thread is about movies, not retail stores.

Would I have done good if I threw out Spice World?

Spice World, sucks, right? We hate the Spice Girls cause they can't act...or sing?

Or is that just another superficial explanation for why the movie got popular because I have piss poor taste in movies, or something to that extent...? =P

Both of these were cult films. They are popular within certain groups. If you like the Spice Girls, of course this movie seems like fun! When I was in 6th grade, this was a fun movie! But yes, it is not a good movie, but it is popular because the Spice Girls had a big fan base with young girls in the 90s.

Speaking of popularity, I don't get why people think Knocked Up is funny. Actually, most comedies along this route are not funny. I like funny things, but comedies have been disappointing me lately. Almost as much as more recent horror movies. The Messengers...wow.

Not very much related, but wanted to bring it up none the less
Now see, I love bad horror flicks. They're the only ones I can manage watching.
Granted, I like cheesily bad horror flicks more, if I watched the Messengers, it would probably scare the crap out of me, as I'm one of the wimpiest people on the planet.

But Lost Boys and Lair of the White Worm are just plain radtastic. I love them. Lots. Eyes Without a Face? (That's sort of a really good one, though, I hear.) Crapped my pants in the first five seconds and changed the channel.

Uhm, does anyone else really hate Ben Stiller movies? Because I can't stand them. Easily avoidable, terrible things just keep happening to him. It makes me queasy.

I have yet to like an Apatow movie, although I haven't seen Superbad. I find it a bit worrying since I'm afraid film makers will attempt to emulate the immense success, leading to a glut of comedies I'll have little interest in. Depressing.

Yeah. I get very sympathetic when I watch Ben Stiller movies, too. You end up feeling bad the whole movie instead of laughing...

I'm a HUGE sissy when it comes to horror flicks, but watch one once, and the next time you know what to expect. That's why I hate all the new ones. I've seen them already!


And Zoolander was indeed a great movie.

I liked Zoolander and Night At The Museum.

And I LOVE horror movies. Not slashers, though, I hate Freddie movies and the like, but good horror movies are awesome. This is why bad ones are painful for me to watch. The Ring 2 was one of these. I wanted to gouge my eyes out and really wanted to demand my money back.

it was the worst porn ever. I mean some of these chicks are obviously off the street, and there was cheesy camera tricks, like where the scene switches via a big blocky star zooming into the screen. 0_0'

Discussing the production values of porno, *sigh*, takes me back to my youth.

(that is drunken discussions of porn, not directing, scripiting, shooting and editing porn, that wasn't in "my youth")

I have only liked Ben stiller in a couple movies.  Zoolander and Dodgeball were great.  And he was tolerable in Starsky and Hutch.   Also for his 5 minutes in Happy Gilmore.

Horror Movies are dead.  Its either shockers (Saw), survival (new dawn of the dead), or horror/comedy homage films (Slither). Thrillers/Suspense (Invasion) are the closest we got. I might be wrong, but its been so long since i have seen one that I stopped looking.  And how come "horror movies" seem to be inching closer and closer to being soft core porn....  It's like boobies half the movie and gore the other half.  I mean i like breasts as much as the next man but if I wanna see em I'll watch one of the movies under my bed.

Oh yeah, and since then my same friend gets illigal cable and free hustler channel, every party has at least one in depth discussion of porn.
"Think he's pumping steroids?"
"Oh yeah, look there like the size of my thumbnail."
"how can I not look, it's been on this shot for like thirty-five seconds...*shudder*"
"I think he's gay, he keep falling out all flacid and has to smack himself against her to get hard again!"

And so on...
I have a very eccentric group of friends

I wasn't entirely impressed with Starsky and Hutch. I just didn't think it was funny. Dodgeball was okay, and it had a few good laughs. It's just, when people say, "comedy," to me that means that the movie is going to make me laugh. When it doesn't, I kind of wonder why they called it a comedy.

Because they can't call it a poorly made remake of a once popular show from TV's golden age, starring the same combo of "actors" from other high grossing movies.

Well actually they could, and they should.  Could you imagine what the video store aisles would look like?  Horror, Sci-Fi, Poorly made rema..........etc

I'm the same way - awkward humor just makes me want to cry/ leave the film for a conveniently timed bathroom break.

Speaking of which: Kicking and Screaming. I hate that movie. I walked out of it and just waited in the lobby for the rest of my crew, because I find nothing funny about grown men screaming at little kids for being bad at sports. Maybe that's just me.

Elf remains the only Will Farrell movie I can tolerate. Even that makes me want to hide/ run away on occaision.

I loved Will Farrell on SNL, but I haven't seen a movie of his I actually liked. I haven't seen all of them, but the ones I did watch weren't that great and it kind of made me sad.

I enjoyed Anchorman for some reason, but I can't stand Will Ferrel in general, and Anchorman is no excuse to keep crapping out movies in the same style like Talladega Nights and Blades of Glory all the time.

I hate just about anything with Will Farrell & Ben Stiller in starring roles.  Farrell is OK having bit parts in other movies because that's what he's good at.

Movies that suck:
Mortal Kombat 2
Godzilla (1998)
Blair Witch Project
Napoleon Dynamite (45 minutes into it I realize 'She's the girl from Waterworld' and lose interest)   

All Monsters Attack/Godzilla's Revenge is one of the worst films I've seen and I consider myself a Godzilla fan.  It's cut together from older movies mixed with footage of an annoying Japanese boy failing at life.
