    Movies to avoid

    Because of rising costs at the theaters I've starting waiting for red book releases and or premium cable (i.e. cinemax, hbo etc.) to see most movies. I've come across a few horrible ones. It's Complicated, Miss March, and I love you Beth Cooper. What are others choices for movies within last year or so that should be avoided?

    My parents told my wife and me to never watch When in Rome, but we had actually just gotten it from Netflix. It's really awful.

    Valentine's Day. A chick flick no one, male or female, should be forced to watch.

    Anything over marketed should most likely not be seen.

    I actually enjoyed all three of those movies... Would I have paid 9 or so dollars to go see them? No but redbox is a marvelous thing.

    I did not like the new Killers movie with Ashton Kutcher, just seemed kinda blah and unoriginal...

    Re: Movies to avoid

    I don't watch many movies I don't like. That said, there are an awful lot of movies that just look terrible by the previews, and I don't even bother with them. I guess I have a pretty good eye for the things I like.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Youth in Revolt and Adventureland are some crap shoots ive seen lately, and turn in your man card if you've enjoyed a twilight movie.

    I actually didn't mind Youth in Revolt.

    In all honesty, if you take all the hype and teenage girls from Twilight it isn't all that bad. I have only seen the first but it wasn't terrible.

    i put up a front when the 2nd twilight movie came out. I was dating this girl for about 2 months at the time and she kept trying to force me to go watch it on opening day (day after my bday). I put up a huge front where i told her i refused to watch that movie not only because its a chick flick, but because i heard the first movie depicted a guy that every girl wants, but what i thought was flaming gay. I didn't watch the first one and was not going to immasculate myself watching any of the twilight movies. You have no idea how big of a fight that made.Lets just say that relationship didn't last too long.. lol
