You are talking about an Italian horror film that was made in the 80's. Logic doesn't begin to factor into their movies from this period.

Oh yes. Some of the actors couldn't speak a word of English and were fed their lines phonetically. As you can imagine this resulted in some less then stellar performances. Still what do you expect from a film called "Troll 2" which doesn't feature any trolls in it?

Off the top of my head,

The Long Goodbye (Altman)
Almost anything with Paul Newman in it (Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, Butch & Sundance, etc)
Once Upon A Time In The West
Nashville (I just love Robert Altman)
Vanishing Point
Royal Tenenbaums
Out Of The Past (I will watch Robert Mitchum in pretty much anything)

I love Altman too and this movie is, I think, his crowning achievement.

How about everyone's most hated movies?

Transformers - An eye-hurting, bewildering sack of sh*te which was essentially an over-long toy advert. See also parts 2 & 3

Utterly terrible films.
_______

Skyline - THE worst movie ever made. I've seen my fair share of bad films, but this one takes the cake. You can't even laugh at how stupid this movie is.

That's not quite right, all the actors were Americans but the director and crew were Italian. This resulted in a lot of miscommunication and is one of the reasons that the script is hilarious. Apparently the actors, most of whom were from Utah where Troll 2 was filmed, tried to point out that some of the dialogue didn't make sense but the director Claudio Fragasso insisted that everyone stuck to the script! The guy who played kid in the lead role actually made a documentary film about the cult of Troll 2, it's called Best Worst Movie and it's really worth checking out.

Re : worst movies ever

Has anyone seen the infamous 'Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2' ? I have never ever laughed so hard in my entire life. I truly can't conceive anyone on the set taking it seriously.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

My favorite actor is Humphrey Bogart, so anything of his is top notch fare. One of my all time fav's is the Maltese Falcon.

I've read the book (loved it), still haven't seen the movie. I'll have to order that soon.

One movie I've really dug lately is the remake of 'True Grit' - the music, cinematography, the story - it all flows beautifully. The original is great too, but I really liked the remake.
