Monday movie meme

This week's movie topic is all about Popular Movies You Hated...

Share on your blog movies you didn't see what all the fuss was about and link back here at The Bumbles.

1. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial: Boring.
2. The Searchers: Overly long, and I couldn't get past the messages of racism, misogyny and manifest destiny to get to the point of the movie. Were they saying those things are bad? I couldn't tell.
3. The Seven Samurai: I just couldn't get into it. I know Star Wars was based on it, and it's supposed to be a touchstone film for many, many others.
4. District 9: A movie meant to combine adventure with a message. It ends up being choppy and mixed-messaged. Remarkably predictable ending, too.

  1. I haven't seen The Searchers, but I really liked District 9, ET, and The Seven Samurai. It's been fun reading everyone's responses to this one. So many of our answers are very different.

  2. *gasp* E. frickin' T.? Wowee! I was just in love with that little guy and the magical sense the movie gave me. Isn't it funny the things that move one cause complete indifference to others. One man's trash is another man's treasure ;0)

  3. I liked ET, but... that was a long time ago. I haven't seen the other three, but you're not the first person to say they didn't like District 9, so I think I will make sure NOT to ever see it.

  4. District 9 made my list too!
