“ A movie that supports the idea that confusing is cool, its only reward to the viewer is a "oh, you gotta watch it more than once to get it". No, because I didn't like it the first time. ” - MattRooney19

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but his attempts to bring Christmas to his home cause confusion. (76 mins.)
Director: Henry Selick
“ Other than its visuals, I found nothing else to keep me engaged. Why it seems they have the need to release it every Halloween ( or soon on 3D blu ray for that matter), I don't know. It seems to just be one of those movies that had one thing going for it, and because of that, its popularity was blown ou of pre portion. ” - MattRooney19

The Notebook (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
A poor yet passionate young man falls in love with a rich young woman, giving her a sense of freedom, but they are soon separated because of their social differences. (123 mins.)
Director: Nick Cassavetes
“ Come on ladies, why does it seem that every time this movie is brought up, I get the feeling it's seen as the greatest romance movie ever. Its set up and premise are nothing different from any other love story. Maybe it's Gosling lifting her in the rain, I don't know ” - MattRooney19
 
4.
Twilight (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.2/10 X  
A teenage girl risks everything when she falls in love with a vampire. (122 mins.)
“ My friends and I rented this because we wanted to see a good comedy. I left the room because it was too much to bear. The dialogue is dopey, the acting is dull ( largely due in parts to the characters) and the story poses as original. Monster movies have always had a romance quality to them, twilight was just blunt with it and all teen-dramaed up ” - MattRooney19
 
5.
The Boondock Saints (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
Fraternal twins set out to rid Boston of the evil men operating there while being tracked down by an FBI agent. (108 mins.)
Director: Troy Duffy
“ This and it's sequel are two of the worst movies I've ever seen. The message is horrible ( if someone does something bad, pick up a gun!), the acting and dialogue are over the top, and the male testosterone would make 300 look like The Queen ” - MattRooney19
