    What are some memorable clunkers?


    My list at the moment:


    Ishtar
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Santa Claus (1985, Dudley Moore)



    Yeah, yeah, I know 2001 is a "classic" but I found it excrutiatingly boring. Of course, the first time I watched it was about 5 years ago so I have no idea if I would have liked it when it was new and the special effects were cutting edge.

    Full Metal Jacket.

    Contrary to the opinion of nearly every filmologist, this movie is an embarrassment.

    The first half, boot camp, is pretty good. Very good, really

    The second half, in View Nam, reminds me of a WWII jingo movie. It's totally unbelievable.

    It looks like some kid who never served imagined what it must be like to be in country.

    Marines in combat situations clusterfuck, take stupid heroic risks and act like something from a John Wayne movie.

    Stupid as hell, really. An insult to anybody who served in VN

    I liked 2001 after reading the book. You're right though, I started it twice and fell asleep both times before reading the book. Third time + the book was a charm though. I REALLY liked it after the book.

    Top on my clunker list is Ed Wood. Johnny Depp DID make at least one bad flick.
