    The ones that just seem to go on... and on... and on... !

    For me :

    1. Full Frontal
    2. Thin Red Line
    3. Seven Years in Tibet

    1. Is just utter, tedious, pointless cack - or did I miss something ?!
    2. Is being discussed on the DVD Talk forum page.
    3. Felt like Seven Years in the Cinema to me.......

    1. Blade Runner
    2. Dances With Wolves
    3. Mallrats

    1. I know its supposed to be a classic, but it took me over half a dozen attempts to watch this movie all the way through without falling asleep.

    2. This one is actually my girlfriends choice, she reckons its the most boring film shes ever seen. I personally havent wathed it yet (doubt ill get the chance too either ... :) )

    3. I keep seeing people comment on how funny keven smith films are, a mate lent me this and told me how excellent it was .. im sorry but i just didnt find it funny at all and that jay guy .. **** me i just wanted to beat the living **** out of him. I must be getting old or something. :)

    1) Contact
    2) Four Weddings And A Funeral
    3) Fifth Element

    1) What the hell was this all about.
    2) Stereo typical British film tripe.
    3) Nearly fell asleep in the cinema watching this one.

    Pity the thread had not been most boring films ever I could have filled a page.....

    I would certainly back up the votes for the following :

    2001 : Space Oddity (Have never made it through the whole movie)

    Oh Brother Where Art Though ? (Seemed so disjointed to me)

    Godfather 3 (Such a colossal disappointment after 1 and 2)

    Apocalypse Now (Way too slow. The Redux version must be pergatory !)

    The Postman - Awful Kevin Costner tripe, turned it off.
    Star Trek Nemesis - Very awful, me and my mate laughed at Star Trek crapness for the first half then fell into an almost death coma for the second half.
    The Mexican - THIS IS SO AWFUL!!!!! I HAD TO LEAVE MY MATES HOUSE IN DISGUST THAT HE ACTUALLY CHOSE THIS MOVIE. CAPS LOCK REALLY CANNOT CONVEY THE REAL FEELINGS I HAVE FOR THIS FILM.

    1) American Pie/America Pie 2/American Pie 'The Wedding'
    2) The Siege
    3) Police Academy 1-Infinity

    1) Cheap toilet humour, enough said
    2) What the hell was it about? I fell to sleep 10 minutes into it, I NEVER fall asleep watching movies
    3) Does anybody actually know how many of these films there are? Regardless - they're bloody awful.

    1) The Phantom Menace
    2) Alien Resurrection
    3) Jeepers Creepers

    1) I mean, what the hell was George Lucas thinking?
    2) I don't know what happened with Alien Resurrection - what a mess the end was!
    3) After a first half our or so of superb film, Jeepers Creepers was spoilt to the core by the man in the rubber suit

    1, 2 &3) All these films had so much going for them that it was almost impossible to make a boring film. So, hat's off to the directors of these three for producing the near impossible. I suppose there are worse films, technically (most Steven Segal films, for example), but the failed promise of all these films make them much worse.

    erm..... it is!!!!!!!!!!!!! the title of this thread is clearly "What are your 3 most boring films ?!"

    And for the record my 3 would be:

    1 - Star Wars IV
    2 - A Simple Plan
    3 - The Neverending Story

    reasons

    1 - Saw it for the 1st time when it was on tv the other month (im 23 btw) and made me want to cry as to how tedious it is.
    2 - Just plain, plain pain - had to turn it off.
    3 - Thought it would never end when i was a kid.
