Mostly done out of boredom, but everyone else is doing one so I figured... Why not? What do you guys think? That question is rhetorical seeing as how most people aren't going to comment on this list.

Feel free to call me an idiot if I get some of my analyses wrong. They're just what I picked up from the movies.

The quotes I give are just the lines that resonated most with me.

Here are some honorable mentions that came very close to making the list or couldn't be added because I don't want more than one movie per series:

United 93, Rear Window, Psycho, Black Swan, The Wrestler, City Lights, The Artist, Scarface (1983), True Grit (2010), First Blood, 28 Days Later, The Terminator, The Tree of Life, Blood Diamond, The Godfather Part 2, The Truman Show, Insomnia, Beetlejuice, The Hurt Locker, Finding Nemo, Amelie, A Christmas Story, The Iron Giant, Mystic River, Big Trouble in Little China, Back to the Future, Let the Right One In, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, To Kill a Mockingbird, Philadelphia, 127 Hours, Mean Creek, Oldboy (2003), American Beauty, Memento, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Ratatouille, Crash, Ed Wood, Vertigo, Birdman, The Fly, Planes Trains and Automobiles, Adaptation, Clue, Traffic, Blood Simple, As Good as it Gets, The Secret of N.I.M.H.

This is the short list of celebrities that everyone loves. No person in their right mind would ever condemn any of these people simply for their talent, their charisma, or simply just how awesome they are.

This list is in no particular order.

Plenty of movies have twist endings. I personally love it when a movie has a surprise at the end, but I way too often see twists coming.

Even some of the most famous and unexpected plot twists are ones that didn't even surprise me. Now these aren't the worst plot twists. I very much liked some of these, but I still expected them.

Here is my list of predictable plot turns, and the reasons why I saw them coming.

If you are that obtuse; yes, there are spoilers here.


But to prove that I'm not just showing off or trying to brag, here are twists that I did not see coming and why I didn't predict them:

-Signs: Too stupid. Wasn't even a twist, really. By the way... I actually liked this movie...

-The Village: Way too silly and totally out of left field

-Fight Club: Effective plot twist that was cleverly concealed

-Star Wars Episode V: I knew the plot twist because it's a classic, but I wouldn't have seen this one coming in a million years.

-Mystic River: Crafted with too much genius and built up perfectly. The way it unravels makes it impossible for the viewer to know what really happened, but that doesn't mean the viewer won't get antsy with questions.

-The Shawshank Redemption: Too caught up in the story to wonder what will happen to Andy. When it teased us with his possible suicide, I was a bit nervous, but I more so expected that he was going to escape. I would have never in a million years figured out how though.

-Shutter Island: Scorsese is too good of a director to let any unwanted hints slip. The writing itself would have given away the ending, but Scorsese wraps this up in so much mystery and blinds the audience with so much paranoia, we don't know what to believe anymore.

-The Others: Probably the greatest twist ending in movie history. This introduced a twist that really hadn't been introduced yet (as far as I know anyway). And the story was handled so intelligently, I couldn't possibly have figured out what was going on.

The title pretty much says it all. Stupid and contemptible celebrities down below with varying degrees of talent. The only thing consistent here is that they're all just shockingly crappy human beings.

This of course is not including celebrities from reality TV shows. If I had to list them, I'd be here all day. Everyone involved with Jersey Shore, The Hills, Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo (ughhhhh) and Keeping up with the Kardashians is teetering on mentally retarded and they deserve to be homeless. There. Now don't bring it up.

As a rule, I don't partake in celebrity gossip. Celebrities really bore the hell out of me. But movies and TV shows don't and neither do awards ceremonies and behind the scenes footage. I gather my opinions based off of those and not the National Enquirer; I wouldn't be caught dead reading that garbage.

These are of course just my opinions there's nothing concrete here... Yet.

This list is in no particular order.

I don't mean to bash your favorite classics, but these are movies that I find either mediocre or devastatingly bad, even though everyone else seems to love them.

There will be spoilers for some of these.

This is in order of most hated to least hated. #1 is the worst movie on the list and it gets better from there.
