Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
744 people need to rethink their ratings
The fact that 744 people on the Internet Movie Database gave Lawrence of Arabia a "1" one the the 1-10 scale is outright obscene. Not only is Lawrence of Arabia one of the best cinematic achievements of all time, and historically intriguing to boot, it's a just plain great film with a little bit of something for everyone, including a rich historical plot, vibrant characters, great setting, and plenty of fabulously choreographed battle scenes. The film is also topical for today's society, for example: "Why is terrorism so popular in the middle east today? Well, it might just have something to do with the fact T.E. Lawrence encouraged the Arab tribes to deal with their Ottoman occupiers using bombs and machine guns." How anyone with eyes and ears could dislike this movie that much is beyond my comprehension.
The Devil's Rejects (2005)
Generally speaking, I appreciate the occasional horror flick, although I'm no great fan of the gory slasher genre in general. I am open minded though, and I never thought I'd see the day when I would call a film bad because it offended my morals. But that day did come: the day I saw "The Devil's Rejects." Not only does this film have major plot flaws (e.g., how the hell does the mutant-looking killer fit in with the story at all?), and has absolutely no scary moments at all, but it's entire premise is about as socially and ethically acceptable as a documentary expounding upon the delights of killing baby harp seals, or a song and dance number about the greatness of the Holocaust. The film literally advocates the torture and murder of other human beings. I can handle a movie where people are tortured and killed, don't get me wrong, for I have seen my fair share of Freddie/Halloween type movies, but never before have I run into a film that is obviously trying to tell the audience that the massive spilling of blood and screaming is a GOOD thing. I'm no televangelist, mind you, in fact I'm a Wiccan and a registered Libertarian, but this sort of thing just crosses the line. It's despicable.
