Movie Monday -- What's Wrong with Me?


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

Ever get excited to see some movie the whole world has been gushing about, only to discover that you thought it was a dud? Not only are you completely annoyed that the movie didn't meet your expectations, but you don't have anyone else to complain to because you're the only one who didn't like it. Lonely days. Share movies you didn't see what all the fuss was about and link back here at The Bumbles.

Brokeback Mountain. Gay cowboys with bad facial hair and strange dialog from Randy Quaid ("stemming the rose?") made me giggle.

The Piano. Holly Hunter -- so brilliant in Broadcast News -- won an Oscar for this?

Lost in Translation. Yes, it was. For me, at least.

Anything by Ingmar Bergman -- Woody Allen and Roger Ebert love him. This Gal doesn't.

    Glad to see someone else list Brokeback Mountain and I forgot about Lost in Translation. That could have easily made my list too!

  2. Hmm...more movies I have not seen. I don't know that I've seen anything by Ingmar Bergman, either, though I've certainly heard the name. My selections are HERE

  3. I haven't seen Brokeback. I read the novella and figured it was better than the movie.

  4. Lost in Translation made my list too. My husband loved it but I thought it was oh so boring.

  5. That's 2 strikes for the gay cowboys so far - you and Stacy. I really liked that movie myself.

    I did not get Lost In Translation at all - so the title was the only thing I could relate to!

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
