Watching Ebert/Roeper with substitute critic Michael Phillips tonight, and this was their list of the worst movies of 2006. Some I agree with and some I don't. What are your opinions?

PHILLIPS

All The King's Men
The DaVinci Code
Running With Scissors
London
Doogal
The Hills Have Eyes
My Super Ex-Girlfriend
Click
Failure to Launch
Basic Instinct 2

ROEPER

Running With Scissors
The Hills Have Eyes
Fur
RV
Just My Luck
Unaccompanied Minors/Deck the Halls (tie)
The Shaggy Dog
Flyboys
How To Eat Fried Worms

I disagree with quite a few of their choices, but they are critics and that is what they saw as the worst of 2006.

:roll:

I really don't see the point of movie critics. Their thoughts and opinions are no higher than ours, so I usually don't go by what they say. But I do agree with quite a few of those movie. Especially Just My Luck and How to Eat Fried Worms. Those two are what I call CRAP!

EDIT: I just noticed that Click was on this list. I strongly disagree! That was one of my favorite movies of the year!

You, Me, and Dupree - it's a CRIME these 2 movies weren't on either's list! And, they should as a result, be arrested and put in jail. It's only fair.

The Hills Have Eyes and Click are also good, quality nominations. But I haven't seen most of their other votes.

You, Me and Dupreee was so bad! I really wasted money and on that unfunny piece of crap.

But Also the horrific "Lady in the Water" should be on that list! The movie was sooooo boring!

I really don't care for critics much either. I thought that click was pretty entertaining.

I am shocked that Little Man was on niether of their lists. i did not see the movie but it looked like an abomination to me.

Pixarfan you can rejoice because in their also rans as worst movies of the year 2006 were such movies as "You Me and Dupree", "Little Man", "Eragon", and many, many more.

I agree with "Click", I really liked that movie and I am not a big Adam Sandler fan. I also disagree with "Flyboys" being one of the worst, I thought it was pretty good and I am looking forward to it coming to DVD at the end of this month.

:roll:

Really, what's the point of this show if you don't have at least Roger Ebert on it?

At least he has a respectable track-record to make us somewhat care a little.

I disagree with those two about "The DaVinci Code"! I really liked the movie (no, I haven't read the book, maybe that's why I can't really critizize it), and in my opinion it was a pretty good thriller.

"The devil wears Prada" needs to be up there. The plot was absolutely predictable, and sometimes ridiculous (Harry Potter 7!!!??, the book isn't even finished yet!!). Merry Streep and Anne Hathaway were great, but Mrs. Streepy character didn't have enough layers, she was just the evil Runaway woman. Although so many said this was a great movie I don't think so.

Just gonna echo some other comments - how on earth can someone think Click was worse than You, Me and Dupree.

I don't think we should criticize them too much, as we all clearly know reviewers are never wrong and anyone who holds a different view to them is crazy.

Oh-kay.

I respect all opinions Dottie, but I've explained this to you already. In the book, Miranda asks Andy to get her the manuscript of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4). The novel was written in 2003, so I'd assume that would be around the same time that Goblet would be coming out. The movie was released in 2006 so they had to change it to Book 7.

The whole point was that Miranda thought that she was so clever sending Andy out to get Book 7's manuscript because even she knew it was impossible to get hold of (she was testing her, no doubt). However, since we are rooting for Hathaway's character, the magic of movies lets her find the "impossible" thanks to writer/love-interest Christian.

But still he gets it from his friend who is making the illustrations for the book, so the script would have to be finished and it has't even left the hand of JKR!! Thus there is no one to illustrate the book! That's why I thought it was ridiculous.If they had said the movie was set before GOF or even HBP came out, I would have been fine, but to change it to Book 7 and let it seem impossible to get it, and then make Christian get it through his illustrator friend. That's what ticked me off. It's like making the movie take place in like 2007 which is not realistic anymore in my opinion.

But it's nit only this what I didn't like about the movie. As I've said the plot was too predictable, more or less being anorexic wasn't ridiculed enough (They make Andy loose weight and she's proud of it!!! This is crap, most people can't wear a 4, 6 is totally normal and they made it look in the movie as if Andy had accomplished something great by wearing a 4 now.)
The only real good thing were the clothes and NYC, but that's about it, in my opinion.

And btw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was released in 2000. :D

Just My Luck
Unaccompanied Minors/Deck the Halls (tie)
The Shaggy Dog

These belong on the list. These, however, do not.

Movies that should have been on there (bolded where especially):

MARIE ANTOINETTE
The Devil Wears Prada
American Dreamz
Apocalypto
Eragon

Happy Feet
The Night Listener
(yes, it belongs there) X Men: The Last Stand
(just for the fury of other posters) Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (Ebert and Roeper did both give it thumbs down)

Movies that WEREN'T on there because they DON'T BELONG there:

You, Me, and Dupree
The Break Up
Lady In The Water (this one grows on me, not for reasons it should though, each time I watch it)
The Benchwarmers
Nacho Libre (I am so glad this didn't show up, but because of his hatred of it in interviews, I figured Roeper'd put it up there)

But seriously, The Da Vinci Code? Phillips, how dare you. Roeper, shame on you for just sitting there and half agreeing, you praised the film highly when it came out! This just pissed me off. One of the years best, which should be anywhere on the list in the first place, but let alone the NUMBER TWO SPOT? Again: Michael Phillips, HOW DARE YOU. :angry:

Anyway...

Cheers,

Surprises on their lists: Fur, Running with Scissors, the Da Vinci Code.

Should be on the list: Bloodrayne and When a Stranger Calls

Just Myself, your pretty wrong, Marie Antoinette and The Devil Wears Prada were great (Marie) and good (Devils) respectively.
:wink:

To be truthfull, Marie Antoinette is #2 on my current list of films of 2006.

Where is Date Movie? Every movie on those lists looks like a masterpiece when compared to that piece of trash.

Personally I hate Roeper as a critic. He's too snobby. He pretty much hates everything that may appeal to middle class America.

This show is nothing without Ebert. If he ends up dying from his illnessess this show should die with him.

Actually, I believe your pretty wrong. As Roeper so correctly put it, Marie Antoinette is a frothy milkshake with no nutrients. Yeah, it's pretty to look out, but it's mind-numbingly dull, and honestly, how many times can the relatively modern soundtrack in a period piece setting work? It suited A Knight's Tale, as it was fast paced and lively; MA was so slow it made its already bloated 2 hour 3 minute running time seem like an eternity. How is this piece of fashion porn the second best film of the year?

And while we're on the subject of fashion porn, don't get me started on The Devil Wears Prada. Now, I never read the book and honestly never had interest, and probably never would have seen the film had my female friends not dragged me to it (they also disliked it, though not as extremely as myself). I'll admit, Meryl Streep gives an interesting performance and at times is fun to watch, but everyone else around her is so limp and uninteresting it's as if she really is Beelzebub and everyone around her is melting in her presence. The plot is at times so unbelievable and preachy it feels like I'm watching a Lifetime original movie in slow motion.

Overall, two god awful films that had me fleeing the aisles at warp speeds; and yes, I realize both films are female driven, but these are poorly made female driven films and there were others this year that were likable on their own merits. See: The Holiday.
