    Death Proof can be hard to re-watch IMO, mostly for about 1 scene. It's when the 2nd batch of girls are sitting in a restaurant, and the camera is literally moving in a circle, following the inane, pointless dialogue.

    I watch the film for Kurt Russell and the "kill" scenes. The driving is some of the most engaging and impressive I've seen in a while.

    2001 A Space Odyssey
    A Clockwork Orange

    One is an epic longwinded turd lawed as the greatest sci-fi movie of all time.It's just complete bollocks quite frankly.

    The other is the self indulgent fantasy of a dirty old man misinterpreted as art.

    Loved Spartacus,The Shining and the fiirst half of Full Metal Jacket. Aside from those Kubrick is one of the most over rated directors ever.

    I'd agree on Kubrick. Throw in Oliver Stone as well..

    I think he wanted to do his road movie (Two Lane Blacktop, Vanishing Point, etc.) AND do his slasher all in one film. Personally, I think that was just too much for one project. I'm still a huge Death Proof fan but the dialogue often goes absolutely nowhere interesting.

    I hated Fargo.

    My favorite movie is Flipper....Paul Hogan playing a real person, not an Australlian sterotype, and pre-pubescent Frodo doesn't let the animal steal the movie...LOVE THAT MOVIE...:pop:

    It was the script, if you can call it that, that killed me. Just a bunch of skanks saying "B$#CH." The story went nowhere. And there was no payoff whatsoever. There is nobody to root for, I hoped they all died.

    It was porno script without the porno, and reminded me of some of the worse Troma offerings.

    It was just dreary and meaningless to me.

    Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill at least gave me someone to root for, which is a big part of the engagement of movies, I'd say. Even if you're rooting for the bad guy.

    Just a killer and a bunch of bubbly tramps with no real humanity, just bad lines.

    And stunt driving and cool cars really never did a lot for me either.. While all my buddies in high school were obsessed with The Fast and the Furious, I thought it was awful.

    But then again, I'm a 300 pound man who is in love with How to Train your Dragon.

    Still... The worst major movie I've ever seen.. "The Spirit" and "War of the Worlds" with Tom Cruise as a close second.

    I'm a Kubrick-hater.

    Couldn't have said it better than Childress. First half (probably more like first third) of Full Metal Jacket = excellent. The Shining is one of my (only) favorite horror movies.

    Eyes Wide Shut = terrible
    2001: A Space Odyssey = terribly slow and boring
    A Clockwork Orange = sooooo weird


    I was told I should see Dr. Strangelove, but I was also told I needed to see all of his other movies and that didn't turn out so well.

    Anyone want to give a shot at most overrated directors???

    Darren Aronofsky
    Coen Brothers
    Quentin Tarantino
    Michael Mann
    Ron Howard
    Stanley Kubrick
    Oliver Stone

    Added Kubrick and Stone in for those who have now mentioned them... I agree with both.
