I Didn't Get It

When a film is heralded as being Amazing by just about everyone, I usually make a point to see it sooner or later. There are many that I'm on board with. Then there are the ones that, frankly, I don't get. I see some redeeming qualities in all of these, but at the end of the day, I don't really care much about them and don't understand all the gushing.

Read notes
  • The Social Network
  • Drive
  • Shrek
  • Crash
  • Brokeback Mountain
  • O Brother, Where Art Thou?
  • Network
  • The Queen
  • Sideways
  • The Adventures of Tintin
  • Midnight Cowboy
  • Traffic


  • Agree with you on Drive and Brokeback...yet the rest? Oy! I like the idea of this list though.

  • When SOCIAL NETWORK opened, I heard of people being "inspired" by it. Yes - "inspired"! Ugh.
    I saw SIDEWAYS a couple months before it opened in theaters. I think if you watched it with me then, you would have really dug it. Although if I watched it with you, with that experience, I probably would have enjoyed it even more. Ha!
    Love the idea of this list. That does it. I'm going to copy all of your lists.
