    What are you talking about? That was the best feel good comedy of 2003.

    Constant Gardner was every bit as predictable and formulaic as...I dunno, something predictable and formulaic. The beauty of le Carre's books is in the inner thoughts and motivations of the characters, not the plotlines. He doesn't translate well onto film.

    Bridget Jones Edge of Reason was just on HBO.

    Terrible. Really bad. One of the worst sequel-for-sequels-sake that I think Ive ever sat through.

    ...and then saw the last half of Mr 3000. That blew too.

    Catwoman - while not good by any stretch of the imagination - sucked less than I thought it would.

    [email protected], you're not going to feel any better watching such shitty movies.

    Or maybe they're going to inspire you to get up and moving faster!

    Crash sucked. I couldn't stop laughing at the end when Sandra Bullock's character fell down the stairs towards the end... it was way too melodramatic and over the top. Each scene too predictable as well. I mean, you just knew that do-gooder cop was going to get some sort of comeuppance in the end.

    I second this. It was piled on thick and deep.

    Bullock looked hot though. She should play the beyotch more often.

    King Kong (2005) was the biggest waste of 3+ hours known to mankind. The "Jurassic Park" interlude (and the entire 1.5 hours spent on Skull Island) was ponderous, at best. Jack Black sucked, Adrian Brody was hopelessly miscast and Ms. Watts, however beautiful, couldn't begin to save this flea ridden dog.

    J hates the movie Nell. And The Cooler. And anything with a monkey, orangutan, or gorilla.

    Thanks for remembering that - I had already forgotten. Yeah, Nell was horrible. I also hated Mercury Rising, which has Bruce Willis and an autistic kid who screams really annoyingly through the entire movie.

    And actually, re monkeys, I really liked The Omen, which has nasty baboons in it (Recorded voice: "Baboons bite. Baboons are dangerous."). I think that may be where my hatred of monkeys stems from, since I saw that part when I was about 10 or so and I looked just like the kid in the movie when I was his age.

    In Roadhouse, Patrick Swayze claimed that he was the cooler.

    Freedomland! This has to be among the worst movies I've seen in my life. We started to leave 3 or 4 times, but stuck around just thinking (hoping?) it would get better. It didn't.

    It had a decent cast - Samuel Jackson, Julianne Moore, Edie Falco, Ron Eldard - but was just NOT well put-together. Never did "gel".

    I thought Crash and Brokeback were both terrible. I enjoyed Walk the Line and Good Night and Good Luck much more. I even thought that A History of Violence was better. Actually, I liked The Ringer more than either of those two movies.

    Domino really sucked. Sucked bad. Keira Knightly is really hot but the movie was just terrible.
