    I actually think Godfather III is all right, which usually brings screams of derision:

    "Worst movie ever made"
    "Disgrace to the franchise"
    "Tarnishes I and II"

    And I also thought "Attack of the Clones" was OK, and "Revenge of the Sith" very good.

    "Phantom Menace," however, was dogshit.

    "Saturday Night Fever" fucking rules! I saw it for the first time at a 20-year anniversary screening when I was in college and thought it was awesome.

    And Piotr, yeah, I'm a fan of the last two Star Wars prequels. Also didn't think "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" was that bad. Also a big fan of "Rocky Balboa."

    Also, has anyone ever seen the awful Martin Short movie "Clifford"? So bad that it's hilarious. Funny I say that, because I saw some people mention "Saving Sliverman," which is the worst movie I've ever seen. By far.

    I'm a sucker for Meet Joe Black, too.

    As much as I hate Keanu Reeves, a movie I really enjoy is Constantine. Cool premise, decent effects, and Rachel Weiss.

    Like Bagger Vance, too. Don't need to see it more than once every five years, but I've seen a helluva lot worse.

    I realize this may destroy my credibility on this board (especially when coupled with my earlier pick of "The Golden Child"), but ....

    "The Last Dragon"

    I didn't think there was any way Saving Silverman would come up. But it did. Put me on the list for that one.

    Also, Armageddon is picking up votes on here, and I'll throw one more in.

    And Die Hard 2. I don't hear many kind things about it, but I loved Die Hard 2.

    Horrific film, just wretched. I know a guy who was in the movie as one of the hockey players and he was telling me when they were making it that it was absolute shit. Turned out to be worse than that.

    I liked Butterfly Effect as well.

    Stunned to see Die Hard 2 on here. A great movie. One of the better action sequels ever.

    That's what I'm saying. Maybe I'm just talking to the wrong people, but I've always felt it was treated like the unwanted step-child of the Die Hard franchise.

    Hell, Die Hard 2 was the only one I actually liked.

    Early 1980s movie called "Hysterical." It was done by the Hudson Brothers (one of them is Kate's dad). Everyone outside of my immediate family absolutely hates it. I still quote it almost 30 years later.
