While watching "Napoleon Dynamite" my whole rationalization/explanation of why that movie was the way it was and why the people in that town were like they were was there had to be a nuclear power leak or eating lead paint chips or something.
Probably all those shameless, piece of garbage movies that massively "satirize" current pop culture (eg. Date Movie, Dance Flick, Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, Superhero Movie, Scary Movie). I literally feel rage for the people behind those movies. It's one thing to make a god-awful movie like Battlefield Earth, a movie someone just mentioned. But it has something to it. It tried. And I can enjoy Battlefield Earth because it is so laughable. But this trend of making these ____ Movies/Flicks is probably the lowest that cinema will ever stoop to. They are made purely for the now and no one will ever remember they existed in five, ten years from now. Absolutely zero redeeming qualities.
The first Scary Movie was really good and REALLY funny. The 2nd one (from what I recall) was okay. The rest ... not so much.
I thought the 2nd one was the best. The opening scene with James Woods as the Exorcist was great. His reaction when he peers around the corner and sees the possessed girl for the first time. Priceless.
oh, i can't forget about the Mummy 2. man, that movie was sooo boring, i was waiting for it to end. the cgi didn't even look completely rendered. by the time they fought the scorpion king i thought to myself "ok, this is beyond stupid. i hate this movie." even when action was happening, it did nothing for me. stephen sommers, you are a very bad man.
For me, it's any movie that get's praise heaped upon it when it's absolutely un-warranted. So movies like GI Joe or Bruckheimer/Bay movies don't bother me because you KNOW what you are getting. (well except for Transformers 2, that was REALLY bad)
It's the movies that people say are the greatest things ever and you watch them and they SUCK.
So for me:
I like Fargo and I like American Beauty even more.

All memory of that movie has been purged from me but otherwise I would've listed it.
