Oh yes, here we go. The movies below are five of my absolute least favorite movies ever. They are in no particular order.
1. A Beautiful Mind
This movie has so many marks against it. First off, it stars Russell Crowe, who I've only really liked in Gladiator and Robin Hood. Second, I'm a very light sleeper. I wake up when a car drives by outside. So you can believe me when I say this is the only movie that I've ever fallen asleep in.
Now, I will admit that a few years ago I went back and watched this and it wasn't so bad, but at the time it was released, it was awful. I went with a friend in my dorm. Halfway through, he reached over and grabbed my leg. We were sitting near the bottom, behind the rail that wheelchairs park in front of and I had my feet propped up against it. Apparently, I was tapping my foot against the rail and didn't even realize it. We were getting glares from the 3 other people in the theater. Even after re-watching it, I still don't remember much about this movie, but it's where I learned that I don't particularly like Penelope Cruz.
3. Phone Booth
Somehow, I ended up paying to see this twice. And it was worse the second time. Colin Farrell is a horrible actor, and he's just not a nice person. Though, to be fair, he was great in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, where he played a jerk and got hanged at the end. Funny how I'm noticing a theme here. It seems the movies I really dislike are those that spawned a dislike for one of the actors involved.
Please put down the rope and pitchforks and hear me out. I liked the books for the most part. Really, I did. And I'm totally Team Charlie when it comes to the movies. I had high hopes for this series when it first came to film. I even bought Twilight and watched it four times, trying to make myself like it. But it just wasn't happening. I think this particular series' failure can be attributed to the casting director, honestly. The two main actors are simply atrocious. If they had cast different people for Edward and Bella, the movies might have been saved. No idea what the directors were thinking on this one. And the pattern continues with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
And here we are, breaking the pattern. The three main actors (Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and Buttercup - aka: Robin Wright) are all amazing. I honestly can't even remember why I don't like this movie. I saw it in the theater and it's stuck with me ever since, and not in a good way. I know I was bored stiff and I guess that's really all that matters.
So now it's your turn. What movie(s) sticks in your mind as one of the worst you've ever seen? What caused it to be so awful?
