I don't know who, besides high school kids and retarded fratboys, rates 'Zoolander' as a top comedy.

I'm so proud to say that I've never seen that movie in it's entirety.

He heh. I didn't really like it either, but yeah, I don't think the vast majority of people have ever even heard of the movie.

My picks:

Juno - Absolute, utter garbage

Old School - Not funny

Boondock Saints

Children of Men

All of the Spiderman movies

babel.....

I watched that movie high, and it was so embarrassing I couldn't stand it. Those scenes of Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett were like the most pathetic Hollywood acting class ever.

The whole thing was flaccid yuppie porn reaching for some profundity about this whacky global world we live in...

Hated it.

I'm sad that the LOTR trilogy wasn't as good as it should have been. I think the actors were pretty much spot on... but for fans of the books, its never going to be as good and as close to them. :(

Donnie Darko for sure, I was so fucking confused and just mad that I wasted my time watching it.

Children of Men definitely shouldn't be in this thread.

Juno

City of God, it's good, but it's not that good, shut the fuck up about it.

Boondock Saints

Donnie Darko

300

whoa.... juno may have been a victim of the hype machine, but it is still a very cool movie in a world of shitty ass movies. i mean it has 2 members of the cast of Arrested Development for fuck's sake....

and city of god is great, not good. just because it is hyped, doesn't mean it is not great

donnie darko is good, not great

boondock saints sucked and so did 300

but for me, the movie that gets tons of praise lately for absolutely no reason at all is Atonement. I truly did not get it. It was like a lifetime channel movie except with the word cunt in it...and crappier

i swear to god if i see that puma ad one more time i am gonna smash my head into my monitor

Sorry dude, Juno was unbelievably terrible. It was like Wes Anderson x Judd Apatow gone wrong. Tons of forced pop culture references and absurd, trite slang. Tried way too hard to be the 'anti-film.' Awful. Awful. Awful.

I agree on Atonement, however, I was expecting some sort of peak or excitement, but it slowly fizzled the whole way through.

It's hard to say what's unfairly "highly regarded" because it depends on whether you're refering to just the general viewing public or some more discriminating smaller circle. I mean it's like 'Waking Life is stupid and self-satisfied" but it's also like "no shit, who likes fucking Waking Life?" if you eliminate the guidance counsellor and first year Lit. demographics.

So I'd go with films that have surprised me in that people whose opinions I typically agree with have liked them, when in fact they eat a total bag:

-Before/After Sunrise/Sunset: I wanted to fuck up both of them. Ethan Hawk is a fag.

-A History of Violence: I feel like I missed something. A cringeworthy, affected script, and some laughably conspicuous nude scenes. I liked Eastern Promises though.

-And yeah, definitely Juno. I really have no idea if Ellen Page is actually talented because of how stilted this film was. She could have stood in front of a bank screen and recited Calvin Johnson lyrics to the achieve the same effect.

oh well, to each his own

and true, why is 300 mentioned so many times here? who liked it?
