Disclaimer: I haven't seen all of these, so there's no guarantee that all of them are good movies. I'm just trying to catalogue films with certain themes that I find interesting.
What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)
Needs less drama and more eating people. I thought it would be a cannibal movie, given the title. Sadly, it wasn't.
The Nasty Rabbit (1964)
I'm a huge Arch Hall Jr. fan, but this was honestly kind of lame.
Sorry, but an unfunny comedy is an unfunny comedy, even if it has one of my favorite actors in it. Still, even the best actors have their weaker films, and Hall is certainly one of the best. It would normally score a 2, but I'm doubling that because of Hall.
Camp Blood (2000)
Boring, generic movie with ugly aesthetics. I could have made a scarier movie in my garage. Hell, I could make a scarier movie in the bread aisle at Walmart during business hours, and I have zero filmmaking experience. Not even bad in an enjoyable way.
It's dreadful, and I don't agree with its puritanical message, but it gets an extra star for unintentional comedy. Probably the best Lifetime movie, at least it's not as boring as most of them.
Everything I hate about hollywood today, in one convenient movie
If I was to pick a single movie to sum up what I don't like in my movies, this would be it. We have annoying characters, lots of cgi, a plot clearly aimed at 11 year old boys, loud sound effects, a mediocre soundtrack, excessive patriotism, blatant product placement, and an overabundance of explosions to hide the lack of plot. Also, it's all so conventional and safe, there's nothing weird or interesting happening in it; which is generally necessary for me to enjoy a film. Michael Bay ought to be banned from making any more movies. Until then, I'll just stick to b-movies.
Independence Day (1996)
The worst thing that happened to cinema
This movie showed that big-budget cgi driven large scale action movies are commercially viable, and for that I will eternally despise it. To add insult to injury, it rips off Earth vs The Flying Saucers as well.
Baby Geniuses (1999)
Stupid, inane, boring garbage
I can't help but wonder why someone thought that this would make a good movie. Outside of the world of Syfy channel movies, you would be hard pressed to find a dumber premise. However, I sometimes enjoy movies with ridiculous premises, but this is not one of them. You would probably have to be a baby to find this funny.
The most pointless movie ever?
I can't help but wonder why someone felt the need to make this movie. I mean, horror remakes are bad enough already, but this one doesn't even try to add anything new, it just recreates the original shot-by-shot; the only difference being that this one isn't as good. A complete waste of time.
Of all the various types of horror, cyber horror seems to be the most difficult to do well. Take this movie, for example. It's not scary, it's not original (it's pretty much just a rip-off of Candyman with an internet gimmick to try to make the movie look 'hip and relevant', neither of which are terms that I would use to describe this film), and it has one of the stupidest twist endings I've ever seen. Give it a miss.
House of Wax (2005)
This movie already has a lot against it, namely: 1) it's a remake
2) the original film had Vincent Price; this one doesn't
3) it uses cgi
4) Paris Hilton
So, is there anything good to say about it? Answer: No. It's one of the worst remakes ever.
The Dark Knight Rises (2012)
Gritty = boring
I'm tired of all of the forced attempts to add realism to inherently unrealistic subjects. I'm also tired of the overuse of cgi in modern cinema. Therefore, it's probably no surprise that I would find this movie completely uninvolving. Adam West is a better Batman than Bale. I'll take campy over gritty any day. And no, I'm not a boomer; I just have better taste than most people.
The definitive version of Batman, for me at least
I sometimes wonder if I'm alone in finding the Nolan films boring. I mean, sure they might be 'gritty' and 'realistic', but where's the fun in that? Plus, they have far too much cgi to keep my attention. This, on the other hand, is legitimately entertaining. It doesn't take itself seriously, and thus is actually fun to watch. Maybe I would have actually liked The Dark Knight if the Joker had challenged Batman to a surfing contest in it, or if it had an appearance by The Egghead or King Tut, but of course modern Hollywood takes everything so seriously, and so there's nothing I can actually enjoy watching anymore. And before the accusations start flying, I am not a boomer, I'm just someone who prefers camp to realism.
Batman: The Movie (1966)
The real best Batman movie
Contrary to what the basement-dwelling losers who think that The Dark Knight is the greatest movie ever will tell you, this is the best Batman movie. Camp always beats realism in my book.
The Dark Knight (2008)
I have no clue what everyone else sees in this. I thought it was just another forgettable 2000s action movie with unappealing aesthetics. It's not even the best superhero movie of 2008 (Italian Spiderman beats it hands down). I prefer the 1960s version of Batman. (Update: looks like I already pissed off 5 fanboys. Well, I hope you're all crying in your parent's basement. Camp 1 : realism 0).
Too much cgi
If they had used practical effects, it would get a slightly higher score, perhaps a 3.
The Island (2005)
Boring and derivative
Pretty much just a rip-off of Parts: The Clonus Horror. The main difference is that Clonus is a good movie, while this... isn't.
Critters 3 (1991)
DiCaprio's best movie
Pure genius. This makes The Titanic look like The Legend Of The Titanic.
Super Mario Bros. (1993)
One of the few mainstream productions that equals the entertainment of a good b-movie
It's worth mentioning now that it's not a good movie, but I rate movies based on how much I enjoyed them, not on any conventional standard of quality, so this gets an 8 for sheer weirdness. I should also point out that I'm a huge b-movie fan, and find that most mainstream films pale in comparison to them. I find that the major studios can't generally produce so-bad-it's-good movies the way low-budget directors can (mostly bad mainstream movies are just boring); but on occasion they manage to pull it off, as is the case here. The movies faults are relatively well-documented, so I won't go into them here, but suffice to say, this is one of the best bad movies ever put out by a major studio.
Atlas Shrugged: Part I (2011)
In my bottom 5 movies
Boring as hell; full of completely obnoxious, whiny characters; the movie reeks of pretension, being more concerned with philosophical questions than telling an interesting story; the set designs are ugly; the special effects suck; I could go on, but I'm sure you get my point. I've never read the book this is based on, and I don't intend to do so, as it seems just as tedious as the film. Of course, it's probably no surprise that I would hate this, after all, it's concerned primarily with politics and economics, both of which are subjects which I don't give a $#!+ about. Discussing them heavily in a film is a sure-fire way to leave me bored and annoyed; so don't do it, kids. I've seen plenty of bad movies in my life, but this has to be right down there with Fun In Balloon Land, Movie 43, Shark Exorcist, and Revenge Of The Boogeyman as one of the worst.
The Thing (2011)
It's only worth is in showing that cgi is inherently inferior to practical effects
Stop remaking what doesn't need to be remade, especially if you feel the need to add crappy cgi. Cgi is boring to look at and indicative of lack of effort. Practical effects forever! Cgi must die!
The Lion King (1994)
The Loin King: typical Disney dreck
Annoying songs, flat characters, derivative plot, looks like we've got a Disney movie. I seriously can't figure out why this is in the top 100.
The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)
Best comedy movie of the 21st century
Wes Anderson is one of the few directors working today who understands the importance of aesthetics in making a good movie. As someone who can't enjoy a movie if I don't like how it looks, his perfectly designed, retro-flavoured sets are a real boon in this age of harsh lighting, muddled camerawork, and gratuitous cgi. I love his movies even though they're mostly in genres that don't normally interest me. Highly recommended, unless you're one of those people who thinks that Marvel movies are great cinema.
One of my most hated movies
I had the misfortune of seeing this on an elementary school field trip. At the time, I thought it was the worst movie ever (admittedly, I was several years above the target audience, but try telling that to a school administration that insists everything has to be g-rated), my opinion of it has not improved in the intervening years.
Star Wars (1977)
I liked it as a kid, now I've come to hate the series, but I'll give it five for nostalgia
Maybe I've just become too cynical, but I can no longer enjoy this series. The whole combination of constant merchandise, annoying fans, and endless sequels is just too much for me to bear as an adult. Yes, these things were around when I was a kid (I grew up around the time of the prequel films), but at the time I didn't notice it as much, while now I can't stand to hear about the films. Still, I'll give it a five for the nostalgia factor, as much as I hate the franchise as a whole.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Thanos: The Hands of Fate
If you're someone who only needs fancy cgi and lots of explosions to enjoy a movie, this is for you. If you like movies that aren't lowest-common-denominator written-by-comittee kids movies, this is not for you.
