Pearl Harbor - hands down

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls. It makes the Star Wars prequels look like the fucking Godfather movies.

It's a toss up between "Water World" and that big-budget porno starring Beenu's mom.

godzilla

the one with bueller.

anything with tom cruise. HE is overrated.

also-i really like that movie 'darby o'gill and the little people' which has nothing to do with this question

Scottie said...

Titanic...and this is coming from one of Kate Winslet's biggest fans. That movie sucked out loud.

Dan said...

Worst: Waterworld, and it's not close.

Most overrated: Titanic.

Leslie said...

Waterworld was the inspiration for today's question. But I've never seen it so I can't say how bad it is or isn't.

That Ben Affleck superhero movie was pretty bad. Was that big budget?

Confession: My 18 year old self loved Titanic so much I saw it twice in the theater.

I was going to say Pearl Harbor too. All I remember about it is how pretty the first half was (you know, before the war and stuff)

Definitely Titanic. (Although I have to admit that I own it. But it was a gift that I didn't ask for.)

anything with jim carey. especially cable guy.

p.s. andrew, we're still living off the royalties from mom's movie.

Pearl Harbor.

Although I learned from The Internets that Eddie Murphy's "The Adventures of Pluto Nash" cost $100 million to make.

Ryan said...

The Lord of the Rings movies. Put all three together and you have a nine-hour, one-dimensional, over-priced, overrated, snoozefest.

andrew said...

Beenu, I guess you have to pay for that state school some how.
