At the end (what was it, 10 hours? Felt that way anyway) I just looked at my wife and said, "That's IT? I sat here for THREE hours, and THAT'S IT?"

OK, maybe it's a tie with Dune.


LOL - AMEN!!. fookin LOTR series overall is overated and yes boring - esp the second one where the fainting bugeyed main boy is stumbing on that mountainside and we get to see the evil eye guy's eye over and over and over, while little boy faints over and over...............

another mentioned shining? as boring - danm good movie IMO!

.....

BTW the TV movie version of Dune with William Hurt is alot better than the movie with Patrick Stewart.

I agree with LOTR being overrated. The best description of LOTR comes from the movie ClerksII

Spectacular visuals don't make them good.

George Lucas once said the most important part in any movie is the story, without a good story you have no movie. Well that's true, but his films require a lot more than "just a good story" to be good and credible. And not boring. I wasn't bored by Phantom Menace mostly because of the hype surrounding it. Clones left me really cold. Revenge was a slight improvement, but I wouldn't want to fall asleep without seeing Vader back on the big screen anyway...

I did not mind clones and revenge. I have to admit because i've seen IV over 100+ times I can't watch it anymore and find it boring.

Yes solaris is another one.

I cannot believe anyone hasn't mentioned the worst movie of all time. Vertical Limit. Probably so bad most of you never even watched it. Well once fateful night wife and I went to see a movie. We had seen EVERYTHING that was out except for Vertical Limit. It was so bad i wanted to leave the theater.

Poison Ivy with Drew Barrymore. We walked out of the theatre on that one many years ago.

LOTR all of them, wife and I actually both fell asleep at the movies watching the second one. Barely made it through one and three. The books were way better and entertaining!!

I'm floored by all the LOTR indifference\\hate.. of course I'm sure some are just as floored that I listed 'The Shining'. LOTR (each of them) were epic, masterful, immersive, engaging, and inspiring. I've seen them all twice (once each in theater) and look forward to a 3rd time on Blu.

I vote for The English Patient. A real yawner. I could not stay awake for this film.
post #78 of 973
None of the above can compare to " Deathtrap is a 1982 thriller film based on Ira Levin's play of the same name". I paid good money when it came out to see it in what was called an Art Theater. I walked out after 15-20 minutes, the first time I ever walked out on a movie that I paid for.

It was on late night TV a few years ago so I recorded it to see if it could possibly be as bad as I remember it. I lasted less than 10 minutes. A terrible movie.

Honorable mention to My Diner With Andre which I did watch all of.

I'll throw in Movern Caller as another critically-acclaimed snooze fest.

Although I have to admit that I think Solaris is the big winner since they made not just one, but two mind-numbingly boring versions of it. The only reason I went to the Clooney version is because I thought they couldn't possible make it as boring as the original.... Boy, was I ever wrong.

Couldn't agree more. Thanks for reminding me that I actually paid to see that one in the theater. Shows that with the right marketing campain, the worst movies can sucker, I mean lure you in to wanting to see them.

Maybe it's just me, but I can't believe no one has mentioned Dances With Wolves, yet. I actually got banned from my hometown theater since I was so bored that my friend and I had to resort to some Mystery Science Theater 3000 banter to get through it.

You beat me to it. My Dinner with Andre (1981) was both written by and starred Wallace Shawn (The Princess Bride) and Andre Gregory (The Last Temptation of Christ), who spend two hours talking about their view of the world. I didn't think it was terrible, exactly, but I did think that it took itself WAY too seriously. Recommended for the NY arts crowd but not so much for the rest of us. That said, I really like Wallace Shawn's performances. I thought he was inspired as the too smart for his own good, Vizzini, in The Princess Bride: "Inconceivable!"

I will take the 5th Amendment and not name any movies that I think might qualify as being among the "most boring."

The problem is finding the worst one/s

For me it's a draw between.

Thin Red Line.
It's the only movie ever, that I've seen a the theater and fell aslepp.

House of 1000 corpses.
I thought this moive might be entertaining but was I misstaken or what.

Then there is a looong list of bad movies but those two are at the top of my crap list.

You just hit a raw nerve, I have to agree this is the most boring movie I have ever seen, and struggled not to walk out

We think we understood the bubble bit. The stuff where he was back in the Spanish Aramda, no not a blessed bit.

I just try to forget I ever saw it......

Here we disagree. I liked Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers. Its combination of dark cynicism and patriotism was very effective I thought.

The first time I saw Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will be Blood, I laughed in all the wrong places at Daniel Day-Lewis's over the top performance and concluded that the movie was pretty silly. I have watched it on BD several times since that first time, though, and have become fond of it. In retrospect, I have come to accept the conventional wisdom that Day-Lewis gave one of his finest performances and agree that his Best Actor Oscar for the role was well deserved. I also liked Paul Dano, in a dual role as the weird Sunday brothers. Finally, I thought Robert Elswit's Oscar Winning cinematography was wonderful.

Open Water wasn't that bad.. it was short, and had a good atmosphere and production quality (esp for a small-budget indie). I liked the ending too, different and unexpected. Never saw the sequel though.. I really can't see how one could possibly exist, lol.
