Are you impying that eggnog tastes like dirty dishwater? Because, if so, amen sister. No amount of sweet, sweet rum will get me to drink that swill. I'll just take the Bacardi bottle, thanks.

Yeah, I don't get why they refer to it as a "cup of cheer" and why everyone tries to shove it down your throat this time of year.  There's gotta be better Christmasy drinks around.

Like, oh, I dunno, hot cocoa? I'd say chocolate tastes a bit better than half-curdled milk and egg. There's also many fine Christmastime ales to be found, that will also make you feel warm and cheerful.

Let's see here, movies I hated that I'm alone on...this is gonna get me flamed, but here goes:

BURN!   ;D

While I disagree with most of your choices, I whole-heartedly support this one:

Pirates of the Caribbean:  Anything where Orlando Bloom "stars" already has two strikes against it.  This movie COULD have been great; I really wanted to like it. I just...anything where Bloom has that much time on-screen prancing around pretending to act, I can't really get behind.  And no jokes about "Getting behind" Orlando, please.  Depp should've had about 3 times the screen time he did, and it might have been passable for me.

Anytime that Depp wasn't on screen, the movie's utterly bland with nothing going for it.

And even when he is on screen in the sequel, it's still bland as skim milk.

Naw, it was hella cool!

You could argue that Depp was too prissy, or Bloom was too bland, but it still was a fun romp. And how about that bass hit when they summon the Kraken??   BOOM BOOM SHAKE THE ROOM!!!

I rather enjoyed the first one, but could barely stay interested in the second, even despite the fabulous Bill Nighy as Davy Jones. The Kraken was a bit of a let down for me. Maybe if it had showed up before the 2-hour mark. I think I would have enjoyed Dead Man's Chest a bit more if I hadn't watched The Curse Of The Black Pearl 2 days prior. It felt more like a remake than a sequel. Dullsville, daddy-o.

Platoon - I don't really hate this movie, per se. I just think it's so overrated by many people I know that it kind of ruins the whole affair. I'm pretty sure I recall reading that Oliver Stone served in Vietnam and I really don't want to take issue with what he presented. It's just that the whole thing comes across so preachy and manipulative, it's almost hard to take seriously at times despite the horrible things presented on screen. Granted, we are talking about Oliver Stone... preachy and manipulative are par for the course.

That's about the only one I can think of that I've both viewed somewhat recently and wasn't already mentioned in this thread.

Movies I hate that everyone else seems to like.


Full Metal Jacket:
I really think that it made its point that War sucks in the first fifteen minutes, I could've gone my whole life without seeing the rest of it. My dad got me a Stan Kubrick movie 2-pack for christmas. One was The Shining (that I used to like) and the other was Full Metal Jacket. We ended up watching a TOTAL DOWNER on christmas day, because I'd never seen it. My dad seems to have some unfailing capacity to find movies he THINKS I will enjoy.

Fight Club:
I can't really say much else. I don't like Fight Club. I think it was going for a "funny" feel but the "funny" parts really didn't make me laugh. I can't say it "offended" me, I just flat-out didn't like it.

Minority Report:
On my 13th birthday, my dad took me to see minority report. Again, my dad seems to love showing me movies I don't like. I spent about half-an-hour trying to figure out where the movie was going, but then I realized, I didn't care.

Titanic:
I was little when I first saw Titanic. All I can remember thinking is, "Mom, when does the boat start sinking?" I'd leave the room and come back, "Mom, it the ship sinking yet?" No, Leonardo and whatsherface are having sex in a car. When the ship finally sank, I really didn't know what I had been hoping for.

Pearl Harbor:
I think Pearl Harbor sucked. The movie was bad and terrible, but then the director suddenly shows us the attack scene, and says "You can't criticize my movie, you have to take it seriously now! See? Violence!" Sure the attack was dramatic, but I couldn't stop thinking: ("God, the first part of the movie sucked.")

Clockwork Orange:
No thanks Stanley Kubrick, no thanks.

Ran
(pronounced Ron) It's a Kurosawa movie that left me feeling bad. I don't care if that's what he wanted, or what the movie's message was. By the end, everybody is dead, and the only character left is a blind guy out in the wilderness with no family and no friends to come back to.

Pet Sematary
I hate Stephen King with a passion, and I hate Pet Sematary in particular. You gain nothing by watching that movie, nor was it that scary.

Fargo
It's one of those movies where if you knew how it was going to end, you wouldn't have sat through it.

Pirates of the Carribean 1
Compared to the second one, it just seems bland and uninteresting. In 1 you had zombies, in 2: you got Krakens, barnacle people, octopus people, crab people, mollusk people, fish people...all kinds of cool monsters! But in the first movie, all you got was zombies.

Moses! Move the bike!

One phrase that sends shivers down my spine is "a true life story" as I can already picture someone dying of cancer/fighting for custody of children/coping with disability (disabled myself so its not as if I'm not sympathetic) and that sort of thing.Basically anything with Meryl Streep in it.Not too fond of films that glamorise violence i.e. gangster movies,but I do like a bit of gratuitous bloodshed!Musicals,except for This Is Spinal Tap (not really a musical anyway).Cloying Disney films.I tend not to watch things I am sure I won't like anyway,like Titanic.I must take exception with  someones dislike for Fargo though :o,I really like that.

Dead Man Walking.  I was forced to watch it in a college class.  Everyone was like, "This will totally change everything you THINK that you think about the death penalty!" and I was like, "Nnnnnnnooooo, I pretty much everyone associated with this movie sent right to the chair."

Magnolia - I found the movie to be a massive pile of over-pretentious crap.  The story went nowhere, the characters were unlikable, and the raining frogs things was pointless.  It presents itself as having a huge underlying message, but the truth is there really isn't.  It's just a random collection of pretentious crap.

We still have crab people, that's all I'm saying...
Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.
