A Movie Quiz I Wish I Did Better On

Mental Floss has a list called 22 Movies Roger Ebert Really Hated, so of course I had to use it as a quiz.

Here they are; movies I saw in the theater are in bold, and movies I saw on home video are in italics.

  • Armageddon
  • The Brown Bunny
  • Jason X
  • Mad Dog Time
  • The Usual Suspects
  • Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo
  • Mr. Magoo
  • Spice World
  • Good Luck Chuck
  • Freddy Got Fingered
  • Corky Romano
  • Charlie’s Angels
  • Mannequin
  • Exit to Eden
  • Hocus Pocus
  • Tommy Boy
  • The Village
  • The Love Guru
  • She’s Out of Control
  • Summer School
  • Clifford
  • North

I liked Mannequin and watched it over in over in my college years because one, pre-Sex in the City Kim Cattrall and two, because in my college days I seemed to have more time to watch movies in my small video library over and over again.

I wish I’d done better on this quiz, but it’s not clear what Roger Ebert thought of films like Hell Comes to Frogtown, 9 1/2 Ninjas, and Assault of the Killer Bimbos.

    I’ve never paid attention to movie critics.

  2. I’ll read movie reviews from time to time, but they don’t generally align with or determine what I see.

    Unfortunately, if any reviewer becomes successful and known, he or she can become pompous and mistake the relevance and importance of criticism with creation in the first place.

    Come to think of it, that’s a real danger with any criticism.
