1
The English Patient is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
Willem Dafoe, Ralph Fiennes, Colin Firth I'm SO with Elaine Bennis on this one. Thank god I watched it on DVD so I could pause it during its 9 hour run to get up and revive myself with a few baseball bats to the head a few times. Then I could splash some cold water in my face, shake it off, and grimly return to the couch so I could figure out why everyone was having a religious experience over this movie.

2
Forrest Gump is listed (or ranked) 2 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
Tom Hanks, Kurt Russell, Sally Field I didn't see this when everyone else did. I was too turned off by all the worship. Instead I waited till DVD and promptly slit my wrists from the hokey, manipulative bulls**t of the filmmaking.

3
The Sixth Sense is listed (or ranked) 3 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
Bruce Willis, Mischa Barton, Haley Joel Osment This was a fun movie, right up to the point where I was horrified to learn that he had CHEATED to get his stupid twist at the end. BOOOOOOOOOOOO. CHEATER!

4
Requiem for a Dream is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
Jennifer Connelly, Jared Leto, Ellen Burstyn You know what I hate? A filmmaker who thinks he's too good for his audience.

5
The Perfect Storm is listed (or ranked) 5 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Diane Lane

Waaaaaaave to the lighthaouse keepah's kid...

... oh, and also to Diane Lane's giant, disembodied head floating over the waves in the end.

6
As Good as It Gets is listed (or ranked) 6 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Julie Benz I f**king hate JACK. And also, Helen Hunt. Put em together... have this movie get all slobbered over by the critics and you have a recipe for me to hate. So, I admit that I'm probably not giving it a fair shake, but I still hated it. Hated the characters. Hated the fact that I was never getting those two hours back.

7
Leaving Las Vegas is listed (or ranked) 7 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
Nicolas Cage, Mariska Hargitay, Elisabeth Shue I guess people love watching other people destruct on screen. I don't. And when it starts to get self indulgent and minpulative? I REALLY don't.

8
Dancer in the Dark is listed (or ranked) 8 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
Björk, Catherine Deneuve, David Morse

Lars Von Trier. Dogma.

HATE.

I would have listed ALL his pretentious bulls**t films here, but they don't really fall into this list category, since no one has seen any of them.

9
Independence Day is listed (or ranked) 9 on the list Movies Everyone Else Loved And I HATED
Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox This one almost doesn't belong here. I didn't really hate, hate it. It kind of doesn't deserve to be hated, its just a popcorn flick. But because so many people seem to think it's great cinema, that's the only reason it's here. Someone has to take a stand. And that's me. With my Mac laptop... against the mothership of Roland Emmerich/Dean Devlin.
