Mediocre Moviesby dotcomboy | created - 13 Feb 2014 | updated - 4 months ago | Public
I made this list mostly to keep track of bland, formulaic movies reliant on convention and cliché. The difference between this list and my "Cinematic Hindenbergs" (http://www.imdb.com/list/cYTU7pPMm-U) list is that these movies fail to be creative in ways that make me suicidally bored, these are piles of crap you're gonna wanna avoid completely, whereas "Cinematic Hindenbergs" catalogs movies that fail spectacularly like train wrecks that you can't take your eyes off, movies that tend to be entertaining and comical in ways their makers did not intend. If you want to see great film check out my "Cinema Classics" (http://www.imdb.com/list/tctWRWAcEds) list. VoteForRodneyLewis.com
