    I didn't read a single post that even intimated such a thought. As a matter of fact, personally, I have a ton of favorite movies that while not "chick flicks" wouldn't be considered "manly" movies either. Two examples I can think of are Sophie's Choice and The Color Purple.

    I simply found The English Patient to be boring.

    I find it crazy that the Coen brothers can make GREAT movies like The Big Lebowski and the True Grit re-make, then turn around and make movies like Burn After Reading and this...LITERALLY THE MOST GARBAGE MOVIE EVER.

    I haven't seen A Serious Man, Rynie but you are so right about Burn After Reading. It blew. It was like they didn't even try.

    They are so hit-and-miss it's not even funny. If you're feeling masochistic, watch A serious man. I didn't even make it to the 20 minute mark.

    This made me think of another TERRIBLE movie: The Men Who Stare at Goats.

    Walked out.

    I mentioned the English Patient first. I thought it was a snoozefest and a bad movie. I never implied it was bad because it was a chick-flick and I wanted to seem more manly. No one else did either.

    It is amazing what some people gather from rather simple posts or topics. Me saying a movie was boring and bad = I am a manly man and will not watch a chick-flick, wow.

    Boy Rynie, if you think that's true, i.e. all Romero zombie flicks being the same thing... Well you're apparently not a horror movie aficionado then. :D

    I get it. The Zebra didn't like Out of Africa because only he knows what's real. :)

    What was that movie with Mark Walberg where the plants were killing everyone? It was directed my M. Night Shamalan I believe.

    Quarantine was a pretty bad movie too.

    "The Happening". Yeah, that was bad.

    I liked "Quarantine". I liked the movie it was based off of too "Rec".

    Norman Part 6. Saw it visiting NJ with a bunch of HS friends. Had Bill Cosby and Gloria Foster. We just squirmed in our seats and hid our eyes. No one wanted to be the first to walk out, so we just suffered.

    He (Shamaylan) comes off as trying to be too "cute" when it comes to offering a "angle" for most of his horror films. When you're finally shown (or have figured out) what or who the villain of the film is it usually just causes you to roll your eyes.
