Entertainment Poll

What critically acclaimed movie of the past couple years did you just not "get"?

--American Splendor
--Lost in Translation
--Far From Heaven
--21 Grams
--Mulholland Drive
--The Hours
--Ghost World
--Punch-Drunk Love
--Igby Goes Down

My vote goes to "Adaptation." WTF???

You Said

It's sad, but I haven't watched any of those movies. I need to get out more.

Says: M@ at April 29, 2004 12:28 PM

I have seen each one and enjoyed them but must say that "Adaption" was my least favorite with "Memneto" being my fav.

As for getting them, I would say that "Adaption" again was the one. Excellent list, BTW.

Says: Jay at April 29, 2004 01:40 PM

Pretty lame here, too. I haven't seen many. But I while I think I 'got' memento, I didn't particularly like the unusual setup. (I did, however, enjoy Igby).

Says: Kelly at April 29, 2004 03:03 PM

I did not get Mulholland Drive at all. not one bit, I would love it if someone would explain what the hell was going on in that movie- alternate universes? that is the only explanation I can come up with and it still does not make sense.

Says: tara at April 29, 2004 03:27 PM

The only one I've seen is "Memento". I liked was an interesting take on "how to do a movie".

BTW you left "Donnie Darko" off you list, which is a severe mind-f***.

Says: Skerdog at April 29, 2004 03:45 PM

Loved Adaptation. Hated Lost in Translation. Soooooooooooooooo overrated.

Says: Christina at April 29, 2004 04:12 PM

I hated Punch Drunk it and wished I could take it back.

Says: Jen at April 29, 2004 04:58 PM

Adaption, hands down.


Three hateful words: Meryl. Streep. Topless.

It was only a picture, and only for a brief, er, flash.

But for the love of GAWD, man! Talk about wanting to take the wire brush to your eyes and clean out your skull....

Says: Steve the Llamabutcher at April 29, 2004 09:32 PM

Have yet to see Lost in Translation, 21 Grams, and American Splendor. Of those I have seen, Adaptation was the most overrated, though Meryl Streep was amazing as always.

Mulholland Drive was the most confusing. I watched it with Kyleen and we had to go on the net afterwards and look up the meaning. I can't remember, but I think she was delusional or something. I think I repressed the movie.

Punch Drunk Love sucked, but then I hate Adam Sandler.

Says: chuck at April 29, 2004 09:43 PM

The only one I really remember seeing was Punch Drunk Love. Made absolutely no sense to me. One of Adam Sandler's worst films!

Says: Kelly at April 29, 2004 11:06 PM

Hated Mullholland Drive...i even watched it twice, thinking I might get it the second time...nope. Now, I absolutely LOVED Lost in Translation...but i can see where people might think it is a bit was just so subtle...i really dug it...

Says: Kelly P at April 30, 2004 12:27 PM

I have only seen the Hours and I liked it. Had no desire to see any of the others listed.

Says: Lori at May 1, 2004 12:14 AM

I live in a movie town! American Splendor is the only one I have not seen.
Got them all but thought there was much too much love for Ghost World. OK, maybe did not get all of Mulholland Drive.
What about Adaptation did you not get? The movie or the acclaim?

Says: Lynne at May 1, 2004 12:52 AM

I think I "got" them all just fine. Whether they were worth my time or not is another matter.

The Hours... *shudder*

Says: Kevin at May 1, 2004 12:26 PM

Hmm...not sure I didn't get any of them, but then again - I never understood what was so wonderful about Memento. Well, despite the presence of Guy Pearce. Runner up would be Ghost World.
