Cheesy one-liners following a disconnected plot that involves two romances that would never happen in real life. Also, beecause it was my ex's favorite movie. :x

Long Duck Dong....need I say more? It was fun, and even a little racey at that time, but it didn't take itself too seriously either.

Movies I Hate: Battlefield Earth
I still get ridiculed for having seen this in theaters. Reasonable plot, poorly done and acting was painful at times. My apologies to the poor sap who posts after me.

Movie I Love: Battlefield Earth
No better movie exists for acquainting your palm to your face and enjoying the majesty of Travolta scenery chewing.

Movie I Hate: Con Air
Nic Cage at his dopiest with a horrible accent and quite possibly the worst action plot I've had the displeasure of watching. But mostly it is the movie that made me hate Nic Cage.

Let me try it right this time

Movie I love: Con Air
It was always my dad's favorite movie, I saw it about 3 or 4 times when I was little. The part at the end when he was all "I told him not to touch the bunny" always made me laugh. And Nick Cage is the shit. How can re-jacking a plane not be great?

Movie I hate: Happy Feet
The main character shouldn't have survived with undeveloped feathers. He would have died of the cold. Also dancing is a waste of penguin energy, do you realize how much more fish he would have to eat to be able to dance like that? That jerk is a burden on their penguin society, and he doesn't even care, he just wants to dance. I don't even remember if that movie had a plot.

Movie I Love - Happy Feet

Honestly? Massive penguin dance numbers? How could you not love that?!!

Movie I Hate - Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

The first movie at least had a first act that was clearly the work of Stephen Spielberg (a young boy and his magical alien car). This one was Bay all the way, and was just an eternity of cluttered action sequences, military porn and Bay's Patented Douchebag fratboy subplots. Oh and Megan Fox? Really what's the big deal with her? In a world which includes the likes of Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johannson, we still lose our shit over this blandly-attractive unemotive excuse for an "actress"? Cheezus!

Looks like my last comment badmouthing Dear John got deleted. I find that funny but anyway.

Movie I Love: Transformers Revenge of the Fallen

I actually enjoyed the little robots. I always laugh at the people who called the robots racist. Also it had Megan Fox.

Movie I Hate: (sorry next person). Twilight New Moon

Mainly due to Bella's suicidal thoughts over a high school love.

Movie I love:

Twilight: New Moon

Seriously. How else am I supposed to weed out the crazies, but to ask them "Hey, did you see the new Twilight movie?" - if they answer yes, then I stay far, far away.

Movie I hate:

Neverending Story

I had nightmares for MONTHS after watching that poor horse drown in quicksand. Seriously, this was supposed to be a KIDS movie?

Movie I Love: Neverending Story

Seriously, as someone who watched that movie as a kid (I was about 6 or 7 when it came out), it was awesome, even if the bit with the horse did make my sister cry.

Movie I Hate: Star Trek - the Reboot

I missed the boat on how Zachary Quinto is a good actor. He's a telegraph pole with mummy issues, endo story. And don't even get me started on Chris Pine's entitled douchebag Kirk. It was like they combined the worst parts of Han Solo and Luke Skywalker after a complete Charisma-ectomy. not even Simon Pegg could save this joyless turd of a movie.

Movie I love:
Star Trek reboot

Was the first star trek film I watched and an introduction into the whole thing and I loved it. I liked Quinto from Heroes and enjoy Karl Urban as an actor.

Movie I hate:
Labyrinth

That seriously shit me up as a young kid, David Bowie was creepy as hell.

Holy shit, people keep calling out my childhood!

Movie I Love - Labyrinth

I dunno how anyone can hate this. Great puppetry from Jim Henson, Great Music from David Bowie and a solid performance from Jennifer Connolly. It's not just a generational thing, I turned my (19-years younger) little sister onto this movie and she loves this too. It makes me happy every time i watch it.

Movie I Hate - Nightmare Before Christmas

The blueprint for every terrible ookie-spooky sub-Goth wankfest that Tim Burton's produced since. Awful.

Movie I Love - Nightmare Before Christmas

Excellent soundtrack, was a favorite of mine as a kid, and is one of those movies that just sticks with you.

Movie I Hate - Catch Me If You Can

SO much worse then the book, it only very loosely followed the book, which was excellent

Movie I love:

Catch me if you can: probably the only time I've ever found Dicrappy-oh believable as an actor, instead of his overacting/stick switch (he's either over-acting or just standing around looking like a pretty stick).

Movie I hate:

Robin Hood (2010 remake): It's like they took the Robin Hood legend, and then said "nah, we want this to happen instead". Even Russel Crowe (one of my favorite actors) couldn't save this movie.

Movie I Love:
Robin Hood
While I normally am a stickler for historical accuracy in "epic" movies, the Robin Hood legend is so fantastical already even in reality that I had no real issue with the re-imagining this particular one did. The sheriff of Nottingham deserved a bigger role, and they never did anything with the "kids that live in the woods" sub-plot, but overall it had enough grit and dirt and glorious combat with swords for me to thoroughly enjoy the 3 hours.

Movie I Hate:
In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale
I can honestly say it was the most boring movie I have ever seen, the only one I was physically unable to finish because I was so bored. And I loved the computer game it was based on. Such a sad black hole of acting.

Movie I Love:
In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale

I love Uwe Boll's movies, simply because of how terrible they are. The fact that this one manages to wrangle Jason Statham, Ray Liotta, AND Burt Reynolds into the fold makes it 100% awesome sauce for me. The action is meh, the dialogue is a delicious "cover your eyes" painful, and is a great source of unintentional comedy.


Movie I Hate:
X2: X-Men United (Or simply X-Men 2)

The first movie was a Wolverine wank-fest and a half, but it was still very enjoyable. Particularly in how you could clearly see how the team was and how they all fit into their roles. The second movie seemed to continue the trend of Wolverine being the main focus of the action (although Nightcrawler was pretty awesome) at the expense of the other actors. While this was even further exemplified by actually KILLING Cyclops in the third movie (along with Xavier) to make more room for Logan and Storm, I wager this one was the one who put the dagger in Scott's back. Not The Last Stand.

(P.S. And yes I'm a Cyke fan. So there.)

Movie I love:
X-Men 2
The opening part with Nightcrawler was downright badass, as is Nightcrawler in general during the film, and while the plot seemed to start to unravel a bit near the end (leading into the pretty horrible X-Men 3) it was still enjoyable and I'd say pretty close to the first one in enjoyment.

Movie I hate:
Beverly Hills Chihuahua
Do I need an explanation? I watched bits of it and most of the end and my brain literally hurt from the mediocre attempts at humor and action they had in this movie, and it's just added to the lists of horrible "live action" animal films (the guinea pig one anyone?)
