There can be only one. (Remakes vs Originals)
a list of 23 titles
It certainly seems that more remakes than ever are being greenlit, which makes sense when you consider there are only so many good ideas left. Perhaps that is true, but there remains a long tradition of official retreads and 'reboots' in film history; Cecil B. DeMille remade his own Ten Commandments and famously reshot Squaw Man three separate times in twenty years. I've covered rip offs, it's only fair I cover official remakes. Adaptations of books or legends, or that otherwise do not owe its story or existence to a preceding incarnation (Batman, Dracula, etc.) do not count.
For simplicity's sake I'll exclude the 'lesser' film.
Eighty-five Movies You DON'T Need to See Before You Die
a list of 85 titles
The overrated movie list. (Note: This list is based on the popularity of films according to IMDb score, thus will tend to skew toward more iconic and modern titles.) If you're of the mind wildly popular or acclaimed films are beyond criticism, you are deluded. Let me explain why.

My Twenty-two Most Disappointing People
a list of 22 people
Don't take this list as a sign of these individuals' lack of talent or range. Take this list as evidence of the waste of that amazing talent and range, sometimes by circumstances out of their control (but usually not). They have a gift when it comes to making movies yet they have so little to show for it. (As an indicator, just count how many times I use the word "mediocre" or mention the film Dune.)
Literary Adaptations: Good, Bad, and Ugly
a list of 46 titles
Somebody once observed that movies adapted from Stephen King books are almost always better than the books themselves. I've never read a King novel, but it got me thinking. Here's my verdict on some that I have. Please comment or suggest some others if you can think of any noteworthy paper-to-celluloid classics I missed.
Warning! Forty-three Films That Are Completely Full of $%^
a list of 43 titles
The following films have an obvious agenda or are otherwise hopelessly out of touch with common sense (or decency). For lack of a better word these films are pretentious. They pretend to be something they clearly aren't.
a list of 46 titles
These are the films I feel have been given a short shrift by the film review world or audiences in general. By my own judgement these films rank at least one or more stars higher than what IMDb represents. They are by no means all great or equal to each other, just under-appreciated.
Thirty-five Most Dated Movies
a list of 35 titles
Like high school year-book photos and fashion, movies too age, often horribly. Some only improve with time and solidify their prestige like Casablanca or Gone With the Wind. Others go the way of the beehive and paisley shirts.
"Must See" Movies I Refuse to See
a list of 21 titles
There is nothing more disheartening than tapping out of a movie after half an hour realizing that it has no potential and is not going to get better (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly). Conversely, there is nothing as painful as sitting through a snoozer after you've made a commitment for three hours (Avatar). Normally I could care less about feedback but this is one of the few times that I'd like to have someone set me straight. Please tell me which of these is legitimately worth a shot, because my ability to judge quality from a trailer is terrible and I haven't seen a good movie in long time. These look the most promising.
Thirty-eight Worst Movie Endings
a list of 38 titles
Think of it as jumping the shark. Perhaps the scriptwriters simply ran out of ideas. Maybe a director got a tad too overzealous with his "artistic vision." Perhaps it was simply a bold move gone disastrously wrong or studio interference. Whatever it may be, the movies below illustrate how a single ill-advised plotting decision can sabotage otherwise great films.
