Films you just don't 'get'
 
So what films make your, everyone-raved-about-it-but-I-just-don't-get-it list?

Mine are;

Pulp Fiction (I've fallen asleep every single time I've tried to watch it)
The Godfather trilogy (again I fall asleep every time i try to watch it)
Napoleon Dynamite (what a waste of time- wish I'd fallen asleep)
Harry Potter (no idea what all the fuss is about)
Star Trek (Im a Star Wars girl)
Gone with the Wind (I always nod off in exactly the same place)
Reservoir Dogs (couldn't even sit through 10 minutes of it zzzzz)

Try going to the cinema when you're NOT TIRED!!!!!

On Reservoir Dogs - I like the film a lot but I get irritated by the non-sequitur (i.e. impossible) outcome of the big shoot-out.............

For those who have seen it (or stayed awake until that bit) - who shot Chris Penn ("Nice Guy Eddie")? There was nobody left alive who could have done it!! :frown:

You know what Mentalist I don't remember ever seeing it! My dad used to have the LP though back in the days of vinyl

Parts II and III of the Matrix trilogy. Totally pointless films.

I don't think anyone much rates matrix 2&3 though?

Most of the bond movies now I'm not 12 any more.

Wot she said. Plot, balance, suspense, script, characters, actors, surrealism, cinematography all knitted together by the maestro. Almost as good as sex...

Mine are;

Pulp Fiction (I've fallen asleep every single time I've tried to watch it)
Classic, Shame on you
The Godfather trilogy (again I fall asleep every time i try to watch it)
1 and 2 were brilliant, number 3 gets tedious
Napoleon Dynamite (what a waste of time- wish I'd fallen asleep)
Slept like a baby through it. Utter shite, it seems to be on OSN everyday at the minute too
Harry Potter (no idea what all the fuss is about)
Never even watched one as I dont understand fantasy films
Star Trek (Im a Star Wars girl)
Ditto
Gone with the Wind (I always nod off in exactly the same place)
I wouldn't waste my time with that either
Reservoir Dogs (couldn't even sit through 10 minutes of it zzzzz)

Not as good as Pulp Fiction, but a good film non the less

I dont get remakes, why screw with a good film. 99% Of Jim Carrey movies and 12 Monkeys - I always fall asleep during that.

The movie "Gerry" about two guys lost in the desert. I don't know why it received a highish rating, it was so unbelievably boring.:zzz:

That's so funny, 'cos I've got 3 of the same films on my list of films I just don't get:

Pulp Fiction
Reservoir Dogs
Harry Potter.

Am also not keen on most Tim Burton films.
