    The Fast & Furious one with the 20km runway in it.

    Because of the 20km runway in it.
    That was the best one! :)
    I've never seen Inception and Interstellar put me off despite the glowing acclaim. I very rarely get riled up by a film, but Interstellar really, really pissed me off.

    Oh, you got there first. Yeah, that scene with the signs at the front door is the most cringeworthy thing ever committed to film.

    This!!!! Here it is in full. It became an edurance test.

    Can't really see a reason to hate that, to be honest. The title tells you what it is going to be about. You get a good feel for how it's going to pan out within the first few seconds. As far as doing what the director intended goes, it's a 10/10.

    Unless the twist is there are only 12 lakes with one of them used twice, in which case 0/10 would not lake again.
    l

    We knew what it was going to be going in. You’d think it would be quite a relaxing and almost zen like watch. It was so excruciatingly boring after the first 10 minutes. People were leaving in droves and then it became an endurance test. People seemed to leave after a particular segment finished. The (admittedly smallish) cinema was full and by the end there were only 10 of us left. Me and my mate have a laugh about this to this day. Everyone who went in was given an essay by the director which started off with “This is a challenging piece of work”

    The director was supposed to be there for a Q&A but he was at an earlier showing and had to go back to LA due to “unseen circumstances”.

    A Serbian film. Knew nothing about it but was recommended to me.

    Horrible nasty film with some fucked up scenes. It's kind of put me off watching any horror type film these days even though I wouldn't class it as horror. Anyway do not watch this shit.

    Let's just say it wasn't the worst entry to the series, that we can agree on!

    But this thread is intended to be for the things that you personally get the most shitty about. And it can be for whatever reason you like.

    I do genuinely hate my nomination. It might not be as objectively bad as other things, but we want the personal touch here.

    If we talk directors, then David Lynch. For that awful feeling of having wasted 2+ hours without any payoff at the end and none the wiser what the fuck you just watched.

    Hm, hate is a strong word. The only film I've ever been so bored with that I had to walk out of the cinema is Tim Burton's Batman, the first one. I liked Batman Returns though, very much.

    Oh, and I went to see Jane Campion's Portrait of a Lady twice at the cinema and fell asleep each time. I tried to watch it years later when it turned up on telly but I always fall asleep. No idea how it ends.

    I did hate the Lord of the Rings, the first movie especially.

    I was a nerd who loved Tolkein and I was genuinely fucking enraged. I still wish they had got someone who had read the book to direct the films, but over the years I have mellowed and actually really enjoy them now, I just accept they ignore all the themes of the book for the surface fun. I have grown up a bit since then...

    Apart from what they did with Gimli, that still irks me.

    I love that feeling! Favourite director, the only one really creating genuinely strange fever dream-type movies. I'm a weirdo though.

    Yup, the only good thing that came from that abysmal film is that brilliant Jezebel article tearing it apart scene by scene.

    And yet BBC 4 have made this into "event tv" with their Slow TV series (like the christmas eve sleigh ride). It's brilliant.

    The Phantom Menace.

    Obvious, I know. But it is just so indescribably, anger-inducingly shit and it basically ruined the world.

    TRAFFIC.

    A mate of mine gave me the DVD (this is when DVD's cost £15 a pop) because he thought it was shit.

    "B-but the box says it's won 46 oscars and it's got loads of decent actors in it??!? You must be wrong, this looks amazing!!!111"

    What followed was surely the dullest and most patronising 93 hours* of cinema ever committed to celluloid. Heavy orange filter put on the camera to remind people when the scene was set in Mexico, heavy blue filter put on every scene in the US. Dull slow paced dialog that could induce a permanent coma.

    I've paid to see some proper shit at the movies that I'd never watch again, but I'd gladly watch any of those thrice over than watch half an hour of Traffic. Even Show Dogs or that terrible romance parody movie with the ginger bird out of Buffy which I didn't even laugh at once.

    (* might be a slight exaggeration)

    Anything superhero related excluding spider- and ironman.
    Just one big CGI fuckfest with a green lady, a talking trash panda and a fucking living tree?
    No thank you. I can understand it if you grew up on the comics, but that's not me.

    I always think anyone could put weird bollox together and call themselves an artist. I did like Wild At Heart, but I think he tempered his creepy randomness with something of a narrative quite well didn't he?

    Notably the rise of man was undermined by the elves turning up at the battle of helms deep. And the complete character assassination of Gimli, Elf acrobatics and so on. Losing the scouring of the Shire undermined the fall of Saruman. Removing Tom Bombadil made the world smaller as he is there to show there are greater things than just this little adventure...

    Basically I felt that it was the equivalent of making a Jesus movie where he is a cool bro who turns water into wine, hangs around with hookers and gets angry in a bank. Technically things that happened in narrative, but rather missing the point.

    Nowadays I love the series. As I say, I was a nerd.

    I don't hate the Hobbit trilogy only as I have hardly watched any. The cognitive dissonance in the first where it was jumping between funny wizard with pooh on his head silly childrens movie and rather graphic orc dismembering serious lore movie just meant it was a confusing mess that bored me.

    Titanic. Hate it with a passion.

    One of the biggest maritime disasters the world has ever seen and they focus on a made up love triangle story effectively turning it into a chick flick complete with a dreadful soppy theme song by Celine fucking Dion.

    King of the world my arse. You want a proper film about the Titanic fuck this drivel and watch A Night To Remember.

    I was struggling to think of a film that I hated other than Interstellar, but yes, this. And Being There is amazing.

    Films that will make me lash out to you for mentioning in a conversation that you like them

    Three Billboards
    Crash
    American Beauty
    The life of David Gale
    Etc.

    I guess what they all have in common is that these films patronizingly sell a superficial morality that appeals to bourgeois people.
