A little post holiday humor poll ping.

I was trapped on a long plane flight with NACHO LIBRE and THE DA VINCI CODE. Nacho was bad, but Code was worse. Really one of the worst movies I've ever seen, bar none.

Didn't see any of them, but the wife says that Little Man and RV both sucked.

They all look just awful to me. I wouldn't waste my time with any of them. And that's coming from someone that used to see EVERY (and yes, I do mean every) movie that came out. Good, bad, straight to video, I used to watch them all. Now, the dreck has taken over. All the good writing has moved to television.

When you have shows like 24, Prison Break, Heroes, Day Break, and Dexter, who the hell needs movies anyway? They look silly by comparision.

"It isn't"
One of those movies where the trailer showed the only funny scenes in the movie?

Really?

I saw it, I thought it was great. Lots of twists and turns, surprises, double crosses - why did you find it so awful?

I've seen all of those except for Ultraviolet, and Basic Instinct 2 is definitely the worst of them all.

It was the first movie I have ever walked out on.

Saw III (or whatever number it was) was one of the worst movies I have ever seen.

After sitting thru the first Basic Instinct, no way would I see a sequel made so long after the first bad one.

RV was funny.

But I haven't see the rest of 'em.

I agree.

DaVinci Code was decent fiction.

I have a VERY low tolerance for "feel good" movies in general and that's what Nacho Libre turned out to be. I thought it would be in the same, bizarre vein of humor as Napoleon Dynamite - and it was, but only slightly. The rest was just feel good crap all around. That said, I loved that damned movie. I thought it was cute, sweet, and easy to watch. And I almost (almost) cried at the end. I have no idea what's wrong with me these days.

I watched "Taxi Driver" to get me back on track and purge the schmaltz from my brain.

I was dragged to Nacho Libre and didn't enjoy it at all.

RV was a great movie.


OK, it wasn't a GREAT movie, but it certainly doesn't belong in a "worst 5" list. Not when Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" is wandering around.

You left off the absolute best show on tv ever. The Wire. I really like Dexter but I can't even attempt to watch it after The Wire because it just flat out can't compete. I have to get some distance from it before I can watch anything else.

Ultraviolet was the worst of the ones I saw. And kind of sad. It was a ripoff of Resident Evil and those aren't even good movies. I mean Come On!

RV is the only one that I saw. The only semi-funny moment in the movie was the scene at the RV park when they were trying to hook up the sewer hose.
Jack Black is on my list of actors that are funny for 10-15 minutes at a time. Others on the list: Jim Carey, Adam Sandler and any of the Wayans brothers.

From a politics stand point, Happy Feet was rank.

Pure liberal propaganda.

Didn't see any of them. But, hey that didn't stop me from voting Basic Instinct 2.

Sorry to be slow in reply, I logged off after posting yesterday.

I thought the premise of Code was preposterous, the expository scenes were like Really Slow Lectures, and the thriller aspect was forced and ridiculous. But de gustibus, etc.

You're being generous.

I was going to say something like you did, but you said it better.

I just checked your profile, you're in the movie business, so you're probably a bit more critical than most.....

I appreciate your comments, I'll think about them the next time I see it.

Any reccomendations for pictures the mainstream might have missed?

You know it's funny, since I read scripts for a living, I rarely go to the movies anymore because, basically, I've already seen them. And a lot of the time what happens to good scripts, which are rare enough as it is, isn't pretty. For upcoming movies, the only one I can think of that I'm looking forward to is 300, about the Spartans at Thermopylae.

Of those, Ultraviolet is the only one I have seen. I thought it was OK, because I don't have high expectations for that genre. It was an action/special effects/hot actress movie, and it did reasonably well at that.

The others, I haven't seen. Nacho Libre seems to be following the Napoleon Dynamite angle, so it will likely be a love it / hate it reaction.

Little Man looks like a one-minute chuckle stretched into a two-hour movie. No thanks.

RV is a pathetic attempt at a Vacation clone with Robin Williams. Nope.

Basic Instinct 2 was probably someone returning a favor to Sharon Stone. She wanted to show off the plastic surgery and have another go at being a hot babe. It still isn't working.

"Basic Instinct 2"
Saw her "minge" the first time around. I figured 20 years of aging wasn't going to improve a bad movie to start with.
