- the horror...
I don't mention the merely forgettable, because I have forgotten it. That's not so-bad-it's-good, but where the smile literally freezes on your face and sends shockwaves. And add practically everything "remake" (or most "sequels".) And practically all "superheroes" and most "slashers". Ah, darn, everything after the 70s. They don't make 'em like they used to. (I also don't understand the whole southkorean cinema.)
There's also a handful of very brutal pictures, I simply will not watch, but they would in all likelihood end up here.

Votes: 260,945 | Gross: $179.80M
- damn near unwatchable. Oh so wrong on oh so many levels. If you get allergic reactions after the 5th shower scene (or whatever war this might be?), watch decent left-winger fantasies like Milius' "Red Dawn", Siegel's "Dirty Harry" or "Starship Troopers" instead. They were in-on-the-joke all along. This was never meant to be taken serious.
