I renamed myself Rudy for a solid two weeks after seeing that movie.
Just kidding, that movie was awesome.
I actually thought the storyline for Episodes 1-3 was better than the original trilogy, since a lot of it focused on how one man (Emperor Palpatine) was able to deceitfully wrest power from a democratic republic and use it to implement his own sinister will. Of course it's a ripoff of Hitler and the Third Reich, and Lucas ruined it by interjecting a bunch of dumb ancillary storylines, horrible directing/acting, overusing special effects and battle scenes, etc.
I always thought it would have been cool if they'd made a more "dramatic" Star Wars with decent actors that focuses on the political storyline rather than fight scenes and such.
Once Upon a Time in America is the worst by far. I was so ****** that I'd wasted FOUR HOURS on that drivel when I got done. Such a dumb story and everything is over-the-top.
I didn't care for Juno, either.
Most of those old Jimmy Stewart movies suck, IMO.
I didn't see what was so great about Taxi Driver. And even though I really enjoy them, the formula for Goodfellas and Casino is pretty lame...take A-list Italian-American actors, add a narrator, play Rolling Stones songs at every possible juncture, and boom.
I just saw The Master and didn't think much of it. A lot like There Will Be Blood, it had some amazing acting performances, but at the end I was left asking "okay, what was the point of all that?" I'm not sure how I feel about that director.
I kind of thought Raging Bull was overrated.
