5 Critically Named Movies I Detest Meme

From Karen...and here you go!

1. Schindler's List - Wanted to shoot myself to get it overwith. No, I am not an anti-Semite or Holocaust denier. I just don't like being so heavy-handedly delivered a message, emotionally manipulated by a little girl in a pink dress, and all that. I get it. I always have. It makes me sick. Interestingly, the beloved ran out in the middle of this one and got terribly sick - I was shocked at the thought of him being overwrought and sat there trying to decide if I should go check on him, but it turned out to be bad shrimp cocktail.

2. 2001: A Space Odyssey. I'm with you Karen - blech!

3. Bringing Up Baby - I love Katharine, I just found her whiny-wacky schtick to be a bit much

4. Saving Private Ryan - Like Schindler's List, I don't need to be beaten over the head with survivor's guilt, and then there's the gore factor in the opening scene, the stabbing scene...just too much. Sure, good filmmaking, whatever, but not for me.

5. Pulp Fiction - I just flat out missed the point of this one - HATED it.

TAG: MOTL, Adrienne, WSNS, AA, and of course...MA!

Ok- after breakfast I'll start working on this. I have a horrible time remembering what movies I've seen, but for you, anything
