oh god that's easy for me. FK'N "Mission To Mars". I went into the theater expecting one of the greatest movies ever after seeing the previews and I came out of it like WTF was that piece of crap. That movie was horrible and the ending was very anti-climatic.

you know, I never watched american beauty for so long cause by looking at the description and pictures on the box, it sounded shit, but when I saw it I loved it.

Kevin Spacey is the man.

Matrix Revolutions- the first two were passable as movies go but this was just pathetic. To much CGI is not always a good thing.

Bruce Almighty- just the idea of Jim Carrey playing God made my mouth water. This movie could have been so much better if they let Carrey do more of his usual crazy shit.

Star Wars Episode 1- I refuse to believe that annoying little bastard Jake Lloyd grows up to be Darth Vader.

Alien: Resurrection- Absolutely loved the first three, but this was complete and utter crap. There was no need whatsoever for a 4th movie.

Godzilla- the American re-make. They could've done a hell of a lot with a modernized version of the King of the Monsters, but all they did was rip off Jurassic Park.

Eyes Wide Shut- this is coming from a HUGE Kubrick fan, too. The movie didn't really seem to go anywhere, and Tom Cruise just irritated me throughout the whole thing. Clockwork Orange it ain't.

Haven't seen Matrix 2 or 3 yet, so I can't really comment on those.

Yeah. Epside IV:

Vader: The circle is complete. now I am the master

Obi Wan: Only a master of emo, Darth.

Episode V:

Luke: He told me enough. He told me YOU killed him!

Vader: I am your father.

Luke: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! My dad was the biggest wanker in the Jedi Order!

(No wonder he then plunges to an almost certain death)

Starship Troopers. Was a big fan of the book.

Now though I can enjoy it, but at the time it was like, "where are the mechs?"

'The Spirit', b/c it was sort of billed as a sequel to Sin City (MoFo favourite film) but it was really shit and Samuel L Jackson sucked bawls in it

Superman Returns

Superman: The Movie is the first movie I remember ever watching. I grew up idolizing Chris Reeve's Superman and loved all of the movies except #3 because Richard Pryor scared me (yes, I even loved the bastard child Superman IV: The Quest For Peace). The last Superman movie was made in 1987, the same year that I was born. I waited a long time to see the man of steel on the big screen.

I was incredibly amped about the coming of Superman Returns: it had the director of one of the best superhero movies I'd ever seen (Bryan Singer's X2), a guy who looked like a decent Superman, Kevin fucking Spacey as Lex Luthor, Marlon Brando as Jor-El, and most of all, the special effects abilities of the modern age to hopefully give us some kind of incredible super fight between Superman and Doomsday or Zod or a giant robot or something.

And then the movie crushed every hope I had. The angle with the kid, Superman being a stalker, the change to his costume, the lack of any kind of fighting AT ALL, the forceful Jesus Christ imagery, the shitty acting of Kate Bosworth as Lois Lane, a finale that saw Superman fight a GIANT FUCKING ROCK... I left feeling like I had been raped. Raped by Superman.

The Devil Inside - I can't think of any movie I have ever seen in my life that caused me to as angry as I was at the end of it. The trailers had it as what I thought would be The Exorcist of our generation but Jesus fucking Christ was it awful.

Avatar - I have not been able to finish this, I fell asleep all three times I tried watching it. Once in theatres.

Stars Wars Episode I - Nothing that hasnt already been said.

Superman Returns - What the fuck was that.

Spiderman 3 - The only part so remember was emokid doing the dance number. Not a badass fight with Venom. A goddamn dance number.

Freddy vs Jason - I didn't expect much and I didn't even get that.

Not sure why of all Phantom Menace hate it was better than Attack of the Clones and i'd have to agree with Matrix Revolutions it was a turd compared to the 2 previous outings.

I enjoyed Superman Returns. Of course I pretend the movie ended after he saved the day and the angle with the kid never happened.
