Can you even begin to imagine To Kill A Mockingbird in color? It would definitely lose something.

"Mockingbird" in color? That'd be like adding color to "Schindler's List"! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Sorry it took 2 years to reply Janice...I've been soooooo busy! :D LOL!!

I hated 'Saturday Night Fever'. Thought it was possibly the ugliest film I have ever seen.

Silverheels,define what you mean by "ugliest". I don't comprehend how a movie can be so. I'm perfectly serious w/ my question by the way because I love the film!

I have tried to block most of the film from my mind but the 'ugliest' part which I still remember is the gang rape in a car. I hated and still hate the film so much, I dont even like Travolta because I associate him with SSF.
Sorry, Borderstone.

Yeah,that's apretty distasteful scene alright but it's unfortunatley true to this day. ...but I guess one can't blame you.

Don't be embarrased,I used to call it SNL for the longest time! :D

Hey Doug,funny you'd mention "Out Of Africa". Last night I watched the movie that lost the Oscar to that snooze-fest! "The Color Purple" w/ Whoopi Goldberg,Danny Glover & Oprah Winfrey was infinity times better than "O.O.A"!

I'll never understand how the one';s who vote on these things can be so narrow-minded. Granted,it's 20 years ago but it's still such an injustice. 10 or 11 nomination and "no" wins?

Why even bother to nominate it at all then? Sheesh! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

My all time favorite hated movie was 'Clockwork Orange'. It creeped me out. I'll also vote for 'Soylent Green'. I can't think of any recently that I've hated. If I don't like them, I usually forget about them, or don't finish watching it. I have a short attention span, so stopping partway into a movie to do something else is the norm for me.

"SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!!" I loved the late Phil Hartman's impression of that scene on Saturday Night Live! :D LOL!

How about this for a title?
"When Women Had Tails." ??!!

A group of early civilization cavemen chase around after the only female in sight,to "play" Oh and for some reason she has a tail! Reeeeaaaalll Baaaaaaaaaaaad! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Was that a porno movie? (heh heh)

Well, the worst movie I ever saw (not counting the one I saw last night "American Dreamz") was "The Last House on the Left." Totally scary and had me freaked out for a month!!

James Suber,this is very interesting. Seems you share the same bad taste as another Georgia-resident ... Now I know I'm right about you.

Obviously many of you never watched MST3K.

The absolute worse movie that ever wasted Eastman Kodak's film emulsion was one called, "Manos: The Hands of Fate."

I can't believe everyone in this group missed this one.

The first and third Rocky were good, but the rest weren't so good either. [img]tongue.gif[/img]
