    It's Rifftrax, so the poll itself is somewhat part of the joke. They make fun of everything.

    And Forest Gump also royally sucks, that would be another reason.

    I happen to like it. A lot. Unironically. It was the first Tom Hanks movie I saw other than Toy Story.

    Also, voted for the animated Titanic musical, even though the other two animated movies are far worse. And they didn't have FoodFight.

    Grown ups isn't on the list.... I'm confused why it was missed off. That film was... It was just awful.

    Jack and Jill is on there, so I'm happy with it in that aspect.

    What happened to you adam sander? Even click wasn't that bad. At least it had a structure for christ sake!

    Grown ups should be renamed to "What happens when you just film the cast outside of takes"

    or Hercules in New York listed...

    This is especially egregious, since it's even objectively one of the worst films produced. Sound effects were cut out or completely missed and you can hear New York traffic in the background when the scene is supposed to be in Mount Olympus, just to name a few things.

    Through all that, it was fun watching Arnold's first film. Especially when his lines were voiced over by this uptight sounding English guy.

    There's also a disturbing lack of "Reign of Fire".

    Is it bad I've seen more than half of those... Oh my god my near death experience is making me regret my previous life decisions.

    The list is missing "Romeo and Juliet in a Modern Setting" and "Open Water."

    I liked Open Water. :p

    It's way better than Forest Gump. Perhaps if Gump had been eaten by sharks, the movie would have been better.

    Heh, I went to see Open Water with a friend in theaters when it was released. He liked it and I absolutely hated it.

    I have not watched it in a while but I did like Reign of Fire...

    but I also like some other movies everyone I talk to think are horrible like A Knight's Tale and Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

    I liked it's bleakness. It's such a screwed up scenario to be in.

    The idea would make for an interesting worst case scenario movie, but the presentation was so dull. I hardly remember anything about it besides the brief intro nudity and the credit sequence. When that's all a movie makes me remember, it was missing some key components.

    Really, where the hell is this one? Leonardo DiCaprio can't save this film from it's incredibly hilarious badness. I can't help but crack up whenever I see that poser trying to be Mercutio toting a pistol and quoting Shakespeare.

    I haven't watched it in a long while, but I remember not enjoying it when I did. I think I wanted to see the dragons win, and when humanity with minimal resources defeated the flying, fire breathing reptiles, it left a bad taste in my mouth. Plus, I remember it being very boring and devoid of any cool action sequences. Hmm, maybe I should watch it again...

    It's kind of the way I disliked Transformers: too much humanity, not enough robots fighting.

    A Knight's Tale took me a few sittings to warm up to, but I'm finally at a point where I can enjoy it for what it is. Plus, Chaucer's portrayal is pretty ludicrous and fun. Final Fantasy: TSW I enjoyed just from the animation aspect (I was still in art school when this came out). Loved the style and art, just didn't care for the story.

    Aww, that was the best part of the movie! Shakespeare with guns!!

    I'm curious, what is it you didn't like about Forrest Gump? I know people who dislike it, but never with such fervor.

    I'm the only person I know that hates it... other than a waiter at Bubba Gump's, who admitted to me he hated it too.

    I didn't start off disliking it, I'd say I was neutral. But over the years as I've seen it again in part or in whole it's gotten worse. I don't like the story, I feel it's too simplistic. Gump goes through a series of events without ever evolving as a character. To me that conveys a theme of "If you blissfully except ignorance your life will be fine." Also, the dialogue is inane and filled with deliberate catchphrases

    I also don't like Hanks performance. It's a novelty, more of a caricature of mentally disabled people than a genuine performance. I also don't like the directing. It was flat and uninspired, certainly not worthy of an Oscar.

    I actually find it interesting, because the people he comes in contact with are the ones that grow due to his actions. It's not about him growing as a person, its about what he did for everyone else in his life.

    It probably has something to do with Rifftrax being a rotten turd of a website.
