Great movies that you thought were shite

Recommended Posts

LA Confidential - Cock off !

 

 

Tricky one. Not all that it was cracked up to be that's for sure.

 

I really liked it.

 

I remember being quite underwhelmed by Taxi Driver, although that was a few years ago, I should give it another go.

Casino and Raging Bull are two I've watched recently that I thought were shite.

 

I've gone off Casino over the years barring the two strong central performances.

Mean Streets is pretty boring imo. 90% of it is anyway. It gets decent towards the end but fuck me, it takes a while getting there. I've only seen it once, about 15 years ago. Should I give it another chance?

Scarface. (Wouldn't say it was shite, but didn't enjoy it as much as others did.)

 

Much preferred the original.

I agree. I saw the Pacino one again fairly recently and I thought it was very dated.

I love that film.

 

One of my favourite De Niro roles. Love the bit when we first see Johnny Boy and he walks in with Jumpin Jack Flash on. :lol:

Tried to watch first LOTR film twice only to fall asleep - gave up.

You've got no chance with the other two then.

Also look out for a young Richie Aprile from The Sopranos at 24 seconds.

I like 'The Third Man'. 'Gladiator' was ok but very overrated. I bet there's more than that that are average at best in there though.

Yeah, missed off lots of average stuff like Matrix, The Prestige, Usual Suspects etc.

 

Forgot to include 12 Monkeys as one of the really shit ones though. Complete wank.

Never been a fan of Raising Arizona.

Me either. They should have done it in colour as well I thought.

You see I love 'The Usual Suspects' and I liked 'The Prestige' (nowt special though I agree). and I agree with the others there. The Matrix gets wanked over so much. I must have missed something there like.

I think The Usual Suspects is class.
