    Titanic. Sat through it at a friend's insistance and was sooooo glad that she was a non-smoker as it meant I could escape outside at regular intervals on the pretext of needing a ciggie (which I actually didn't half the time, I just needed to get away from the awfulness on screen).

    Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Loads of sci-fi geeks I know loved it, but when I saw it at the cinema I spent the first half of the movie wanting to put my boot through the screen every time Jar-Jar Binks appeared. The second half was much, much better, but that is only because I slept through it.

    Blair Witch Project: Me and my housemates at that time called in every favour we could to get a pirate video of it. Shouldn't have bothered. Utter, utter crap.

    Bladerunner: Haven't ever got through it without falling asleep.

    Monty Python's Meaning of Life: Never got past "Every Sperm is Sacred" without dozing off.

    Excellent call on Blair Witch. It wasn't the least bit scary and it gave me a stomach ache.

    Phantom Menace was without a doubt the worst of the Star Wars films. Jar Jar Binks and the little kid that played Anakin were horrible. But the prequel trilogy as a whole sucked, because Lucas spent more time on CGI than having an actual story.

    From good to bad, I'd rank the Star Wars movies as:

    Empire Strikes Back (next to Aliens, the best sci-fi movie ever)
    Revenge of the Sith (made up for the first two movies)
    Star Wars
    Return of the Jedi
    Attack of the Clones
    Phantom Menace

    I agree with you. For a brief second I thought RotJ and AotC should be reversed. Then I remembered that Harrison Ford will kick Hayden Christensen's ass any day.

    Phantom Menace
    Star Wars a New Hope - first time for THX sound
    Empire Strikes Back - more money = better special effects
    Revenge of the Sith
    Attack of the Clones - I thought Hayden was hot.. oh shut up
    Phantom Menace - Anakin was a child, it was made for kids.
    Return of the Jedi aka Attack of the teddy bears and the worlds worse kiss and cheese ball lines. Lucas tweeked it 2 twice and it still sucked.

    Did anybody see Dear John? I really want to see this flick darn it.

    Any cheesy sappy totally predictable love story like the Notebook and Dear John (haven't actually seen Dear John but from what I can tell I'm not missing much) Oh! And Sweet Home Alabama, the Sweetest Thing, those stupid American Pie movies (except the first one i liked). My girlfriends always drag me to see these stupid movies and they think I'm a complete oddball for not agreeing with them and thinking it's the best movie ever!!! LOL
