My old roomate made a huge deal about it and encouraged me to watch it. He really got my hopes up that it was going to be awesome. When it ended I just kinda stood up and said "oh ok" and he had this shit eating grin like I was going to have some sort of epiphany.

Yea that movie really isn't as good as all the fanfare surrounding it. Very disappointed with many of its details; the plot foundation is pretty interesting but it could've been executed a whole lot better.

"The Wrestler".

I finally have seen it and it is a weak mess full of cliches. I compared it to Pink that won oscar for Shean Penn and realised how much more deserving SP was.

"Less Than Zero". Definitely the worst film of the 1980s, possibly the worst film of all time.

^ you can do much worse from the 80's

I agree, even if it didn't live up to the book (what a surprise!) - it's still far from the bottom.

"Beat Street" with Lorenzo Llamas, and "Teen Wolf Too" comes to mind.

I always cut some slack for 1980s "teen" movies, because the filmmakers were aiming low -- they were only trying to make an unpretentious, entertaining movie for younger viewers. "Less Than Zero", on the other hand, was a pretentious failure. (Subject to disagreement, of course).

+ Beat Street is awesome. That part with Dougie Fresh and the Christmas Rap. Are you kidding?!

"The Upside of Anger" with Joan Allen and Kevin Costner. A thoroughly annoying, neurotic performance by Allen and a generally slovenly Costmer performance (he phoned it in even more than usual). Plus a very cheap twist at the end.

Rachel Getting Married.

the premise of the movie is good and the acting is good by some of the people, but just got too syrupy on the whole let's glorify Rachel for the next few days before the wedding and afterwards thing was too much. i know , it is her day, but it carried it too far.

plus, i didnt feel for the husband to be. i wished they used someone more outgoing or colorful in personality, he basically just gave a geeky smile throughout the movie, and when he said anything it was lame and awkward (like when he put down his father in law when he said he doesnt know how to wash dishes more efficiently) and he just came across as a nerdy jerk. i couldnt get into the moment when the family was all so happy to find out Rachel was pregnant and they were so glorifying her and the fiance, it just wasnt believable, didnt move me at all.

I've never heard of this movie but from your description, the fact that you watched it makes me think you have a vagina.

In case it wasn't obvious, Jumpers was an abortion of a film. As was Smokin' Aces.
