Getting choked by Cherry Garcia Ice Cream.

Once in a while I get the urge to drive down to my local video store book a few dvds and curl up on the couch with a packet of crisps and a couple of scoops of Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia Ice cream. Now I am always one for recommendations but have come partial to only receiving recommendations from a select few because of one particular reason - Movies being over rated.

If you answer yes to three or more of the following questions/statements, then it is likely that I will ignore any recommendations you make and seriously hope and pray for the rest of us that you don't take Film and Television at Auckland University in the quest to become the next Peter Jackson. Your taste in film sucks and probably only extends as far as the Blockhouse Bay Video Ezy Collection.

  1. You list more than one of the following as your favorite actors/actresses on your facebook/bebo/myspace page - Jennifer Love Hewitt, Cameron Diaz, Josh Harnett, Will Smith, Eninmemem, Angelina Jolie ( ahem sucking her way to the top), Brad Pitt - Jolie lil bitch, Ben Affleck, Leonardo Dicaprio, Zac Efron, Temeura Morrison, -the list goes on and on.
  2. You have no idea what Rialto, The Academy or Ludo cinemas is or where they are located.
  3. You drink Tui.
  4. You think that you're clued up on the whole film world because you drophatt Steven Spielberg like you're some clued up movie buff.
  5. You have never gone down the international/film festival section of the video store collection.
  6. You like romantic comedies that have Jennifer Aniston or Jennifer Lopez - actually anyone named Jennifer in them.
  7. You think you're the next Peter Jackson because your year 5 teacher gave you an A for your stupid english programme on your video project about your dog Rusty.
  8. You always go for the overhyped movies such as the Simpsons, Harry Potter, Titanic and so on
Now on to my list of the most overrated movies I have seen in the past few years - feel free to add your own. (not in any chronological order)

  1. Titanic - ( i was gutted that they all didnt die)
  2. Forest Gump
  3. Dances with Wolves
  4. Father of Bride Series
  5. War of the Worlds - (Die Dakota Fanning die die die!)
  6. The Matrix
  7. Grease
  8. The Good Shepherd
  9. Pirates of the Caribean 2
  10. The Da Vinci Code

Ben and Jerrys ice cream is the bomb. Every summer over here they have a festival and give away unlimited B&J ice cream of all flavours all weekend. It's awesome.

I disagree Pearl - while I occasionally enjoy the "indy" movie, mainstream is where it's all at for me - esp horror films :)

Heine- Yes Ben and Jerry's icecream are great esp Cherry Garcia and the cookie dough one.

Lulu- why am i not suprised? I do like the occasional mainstream film.
Grief i liked hairspray.
