Most Overrated Movies

I was so frustrated when I first saw "The Natural" with Robert Redford because the baseball scenes were amaturish and I was so pissed that they intentually left out what happened to his character for 15 years before his comeback.

Now, I like the movie and forgive Barry Levinson for leaving me in the dark...

I think I fell asleep when I tried to watch "Local Hero" 20 years ago. Maybe I should give it another try?

American Beauty

Both so formulaic that I knew everything that was going to happen before it did. (In the case of Titanic, yes, we all knew the boat was going down...it became more of how and when they were going to push a button...)

And then we have Legends of the Fall: so laughable it was in a class all its own. The night we went, the Brad Pitt fan club apparently was on a field trip. The audience broke out in wild applause when he appeared on screen. Audible sobs when Isabelle died. At least that gave us a chance to let out all the suppressed laughter that had been building throughout the movie. (Who could forget their version of Hop Sing?) And then the scene where daddy dearest saves the prodigal son - ROTFLMAO!!! We purposely went to a bookstore after the movie just to find other books by the author to point at and make fun of.

Yes, I can be cruel when I don't like something. But let me tell you how I really feel....<eg>

My wife and I rented "No Country For Old Men" last night.We both didn't like it.I can't believe it won Best Picture.It was totally pointless,gratuitous bloodshed with a very unsatisfying ending."3:10 to Yuma" was a far better movie,with real acting by Russel Crowe and Christian Bale.
