Thread Name: Worst Movie ever
Subject: RE: Worst Movie ever
Funny how tastes differ
I loved 'Whale Rider' "Maori (?) girl and whales? Horrible." and have seen 'The Artist' three times and would go again tomorrow
I also loved 'Heaven's Gate', though it is recorded as having lost more at the box office than any other film
We now live in the Wild West of Ireland and usually have to travel around fifty miles to see good films (Limerick or Galway)
Dublin is a regular treat - cramming in as many films as possible in three days (six in that period is our record)
The filmed National Theatre Shakespeare productions are a particularly pleasurable addition
Films on TV are ok, but it doesn't come anywhere near the pleasure of communal viewing on the big screen with a crowd of like minded film lovers, though the 'Talking Pictures' channel is manna from heaven (for 'they-don't-make-'em-like-that-any-more' stuff and for finding out how bad some of those films you remember fondly really were.
