I don't see why one should feel ashamed of not liking something. We've all got different tastes and it would be a pretty boring world in which we all liked the same thing.

I have tried four times to watch Citizen Kane and every time I just wind up yelling 'stuff Rosebud' and going back to The Third Man. Not really ashamed of that, but say it to some people and they act like you just barfed on their shoes. And I'm not ashamed at all, in any company, of hating Titanic right down to the last second (apart from about ten minutes of sinking stuff). Only watched to the end because after sitting through what I'd had to put up with for the first agonisingly long hour or two of it, I was determined to see at least one of them die for my trouble.

The matrix for me the whole trilogy are over rated in my humble opinion.

Terry Gilliam's the adventures of baron munchausen. It's got wonderful design and visuals yes, but it's episodic and very annoyingly didactic. I felt rather sorry for Jonathan pryce's character by the end for all he has to put up with.

Oh god me too, but im not ashamed, the Matrix is unoriginal, badly acted with a even worse script .... god knows why its so loved?

Crixus says:
the matrix is unoriginal?! Im sorry but i'll have to disagree with that comment! The story hadn't been done before and I believe it was the first movie to use bullet time? Of course I stand to be proven wrong if you have good reasons.

*Not* ashamed, but there's one hyperclassics I truly hated, this one: The Blue Angel [DVD] (1930). Can't stand Marlene Dietrich too :)

Well WB penned the term "Bullet Time" and they may of used it first in movie im not sure. But they sure didnt invent it, its been used as far back as the 60's TV shows, music videos etc.

Even if they used " Bullet Time" in a movie first, it doesnt make the film original. i know its BT and the lobby scene alone that makes everyone rave about this film, and I admit that, they are both impressive, but they dont make Matrix a good movie and certainly doesnt make it original.

The Plot is just mish mash of other better Sci Fi Movies. Even the Script steals lines from the Sly move Cobra FFS !

But im not going to argue about it, everyone loves The Matrix, I dont, I have learned to live with that fact.

The Godfather.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Lord of the Rings trilogy. Wouldn't say I dislike them but just found them all a bit "meh"

There are others but just can't think of them just now.

'The first movie to use bullet time'? Now that's real film-making - not like that cheapjack Godfather rubbish.

I agree with Sou'Wester - there are some well-regarded films which I don't like (including Bladerunner), but I don't feel any shame about it.

Gaz hang your head in shame the matrix trilogy is great lol.

Joking aside I know that people are entitled to there opinion but I never understand people saying the matrix is unoriginal. I'll happily be corrected but can someone please point out what films came before matrix that it copied. I'd certainly never seen anything like it before hand and I watch tons of films. I also thought it was a gutsy move having so much martial arts in a film with actors who were not martial arts trained or recognised martial arts stars. I thought the action scenes were great and the whole concept very interesting.

I just can't stand the James Bond films, any of them. I've sat through a couple, when in company and everyone's going on about how great they are, but I find them boring in the extreme.

another voice for Bond films, give me Austin Powers any time!
Bladerunner, for me just ok, not one of the best.
Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, 3/5 at most IMO, apes on horses (chuckling). Actually haven't seen any other POTA film, read the book, original when I was in my teens, it blew my mind, reread countless times. But I'm aware of that classis scene with Statue in the end...
Another voice for Citizen Kane, wasn't hooked.
Expendables, what I saw - ageing megastars pretending to be something else, throwing 'cool' lazy jokes, just didn't care what happened on screen. And I love Comandos, Rambo...

But I loved Matrix original (second ok action, third - meh), Avatar (eye candy),
Lord Of The Rings and Godfather.

Austin Powers is one of only two films I've walked out of the cinema before they've even finished!

Three Colours Trilogy, bored me to tears. I may one dat rewatch them to see if I missed something.

8 1/2 by Fellini, smug, self indulgent and thoroughly unlikeable.

Totally agree with "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

I just don't get what's so great about it.
