- The Prince Bride: Okay I know its a cult favorite, that its a must see for most, that any time the movie is on my husband has to watch it over and over again. For me I just don’t get it. I don’t get the whole point of the movie. Steve has watched it so many times that the kids now recite lines from it. I will wholeheartedly admit that I have never watched the movie all the way through. It’s probably because it just seems so inane that I cannot make it through it. I can usually handle 5-10 minutes and then either Steve changes the channel or I find something else to do.
- The Hunt for Red October: Again this is one of Steve’s favorite movies. He will record it and watch it for weeks on end. I know my dad loved the book by Tom Clancy. For me it’s just not a movie I can get into. I don’t like the material its about. I can’t stand the thought of war, submarines and endangering lives. I personally think the movie is over acted. Part of that is probably because I am not a fan of Sean Connery’s. There has not been a single movie he has been in that I have found enjoyable to watch.
- Shawshank Redemption: This movie was actually marked as the best movie ever made by IMDB. I hate it. I hate it with a passion. I hate the plot. I hate the acting. I do love the actors in it though. I have seen tons of other movies that the actors are in that I have enjoyed but I can’t make it through this one.
What are the movies you hate and why? Am I wrong in my choices? Let me know why I should give one of them another shot.
