Best comic book teams
You know all those great movies you're supposed to be in love with but you just don't get? Here's that list.

I wanted to like it, but I don't think I'm smart enough. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donnie_Darko
I think I was 13 when I first watched Blue Velvet. Since then I've grown to really like David Lynch movies, but I have to say that Blue Velvet still is on my list of "WTF? Movies". Just watch the "Candy Colored Clown" scene on YouTube for a taste. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJtGCvKpEWM
This one goes right back to high school English class. I believe we spent a month on Heart of Darkness, which culminated in a viewing of Apocalypse Now. I didn't "get" this one either. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apocalypse_Now
The plot begins...
...with the life of T. S. Garp. His mother, Jenny Fields, is a strong-willed nurse; an asexual who wants a child but not a husband. She encounters a dying tail gunner known only as Technical Sergeant Garp who was reduced to a perpetually priapic mental vegetable by pieces of shrapnel that pierced his head. Jenny rapes Garp in his bedridden, uncomprehending, dying state to impregnate herself, and names the resultant son after him ("T. S." standing only for "Technical Sergeant"). Jenny raises young Garp alone, taking a position at a boys' school...you'll have to rent the flick to learn the rest of the story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_World_According_to_Garp
Adam Sandler's worst movie I think
Maybe I was just too drunk when I watched it, but this movie just didn't make any sense to me. (And listening to Harvey grunt and whine at the end of it certainly didn't help matters.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bad_Lieutenant
Perhaps it's because I'm an atheist and have had little exposure to religion, but I just didn't understand this film. Plus it was really long. Really long. (Really.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Temptation_of_Christ_(film)
I know... I know... Robert Altman movies are great. (Well, that's what everyone tells me.) That being said, I don't get them or enjoy them. Where's the plot? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_Cuts
Tell us what you think....
It wasn't funny, it was just weird.
