narnia is a bit twee, but has the odd bit that impresses me. tons of awful, awful dialogue tho.
batman begins did seem a bit pompous to me too
haven't seen godfather II but for about three minutes around the middle, and i found that more interesting than the entirety of godfatherI
LOTR has fallen slightly in my eyes since seeing king kong, the only movie i've ever felt like abandoning at the cinema, but is still a very good trilogy.
the only star wars movie that treads close to being bad is II. and empire is an absolute masterpiece. (no, not the magazine, the movie)
haven't seen ET in years. remember liking it tho.
only kubrick i've seen is docter strangelove. found a bit boring, but some great moments of deadpan humour. fail safe is miles better.
speilberg didn't make dune. lynch made dune. speilberg made duel. not sure which you meant.
buffy did get a bit self-parodic towards the end, but at least it found a proper ongoing plot instead of "monster-of-the-week" shenanagins. in my eyes it peaked when they killed the master. secondary peak was buffy's epitaph after she defeated glory, third peak was the death of darla.
lost in translation does drag on pointlessly, and just petered out, but like strangelove, has some great bits of deadpan (the hooker scene is priceless)
equilibrium was my favourite film for ages after i saw it. haven't seen it since, not sure how i'd view it today.
i really don't see how you can love the mummy movies but dislike POTC. i mean they're exactly the same vein of movie, played almost exactly the same way. tho neither of them make it into my favourites list.
the ending of brokeback mountain was stupid and made the whole movie a complete waste of time.
AI is a brilliant travelogue through the future.
jarhead deserved to be nominated in every category available to it.
the opening of moulin rouge is terrible, but the second half is just brilliant.
dogma is KS's best movie.
dogeball isn't as funny as it's made out to be, but still has some good bits. faults appear towards the end as recurring gags are run into the ground.
O is a good teen drama.
hardball is better than the mighty ducks trilogy put together.
