Well (and not to discount all the other stats you wrote by merely quoting that one paragraph above) this is kindof what I meant. I can see people disliking Crash. I can see it being heavy-handed to them, I can seem them wishing the characters were given more depth, etc etc on we go, and to a certain extent I agree, it could have been better. And I'm not calling it one of my favorites. I guess I had the biggest problem with ranking it in amongst the Worst Movie Ever category, because truly it isn't even one of the top 10 worst movies ever, by any stretch of the definition of taste. There are some good performances in the movie, and that alone usually makes me give a movie a chance. (Howard was better in Hustle and Flow however (IMO)).

I agree with you on my inclusion of LOTR and for that matter Harry Potter, it was a bit much. I guess I was exaggerating, because they aren't truly the worst movies I've ever seen. That list is pretty big actually (I'm pretty hard on movies generally), and they don't belong in it. I just didn't like them that much.

I did fall asleep during LOTR though, honest.

This guy makes a convincing case on Star Wars Phantom Menace. Though I actually like this movie but it's hard to after seeing this lengthy review. I actually agree with him on the "running fast" part and how a key scene at the end would require a fast running but Obi Wan doesn't.

This is just part 1. The total is 70 min Though it was entertaining even with the Silence of the Lambs voiceover and interruptions.

YouTube - Star Wars: The Phantom Menace Review (Part 1 of 7)

One could argue that the distance he needed to cover was too short, and that the "fast running" in that situation would have sent him flying right into Qui-Gon, Darth Maul, that deep pit, etc.

Most of these points are funny to hear, but are rather nitpicky.

Well yeah you can rip apart any movie. Suspense of disbelief fails for different reasons depending on the person. There's enough room for him to run but it's not dramatic.

Well the first time they don't even know the shields are there. The second time he's trying to catch up to Qui-Gon, and that distance isn't very far. If that power makes him rocket forward, it's too close to wildly plow forward, especially when Qui-Gon isn't expecting it or looking behind him. When they use the force run earlier in the film, they do it together as a team.

Crash sucked.

I own the extended boxed set of LOTR and watch the whole series once a year, all the way through, while drinking beer from a tin tankard.

The force just like Gandalf's powers are used when advancing plot and not used when inconvenient. Just about every action movie has this problem. How do you make superheros with some vulnerability? They know that most people won't question it since they are following the characters and general plot. They could easily make him run around Qui-Gon but again it's not important to the story.

I like the series because it shows a fall of the roman republic story in a sci-fi background.

Well we're def in agreement on that last part. It doesn't get enough credit for its ambition in that regard.

I can't hate any movie that pushes Sandra Bullock down a flight of stairs by the power of her character's racism. That's retardedly awesome.

Hell, I don't think anyone's listed any Lynch film yet. That's got to be some sort of record.

Wait for my brother, Baron.

I thought Lost Highway was a big jerk-off, but I wouldn't call it the worst thing I've ever seen.
