    I guess you and I have the same problem. I loved both TLR and Alice.

    Shawshank Redemption is my all time favorite movie...just love it.

    I also love White Squall (1996) with Jeff Bridges and a very young Jeremy Sisto, Ryan Phillipe, etc. Such a great coming of age movie based on a true story. Whenever I mention it no one has ever heard of it.

    Wasn't The Wizard of Oz (the original) a box office flop?

    isn't it amazing how when you go to watch old movies or TV shows that you used to love how corny and tacky they can be now.

    I saw White Squall. It was good, but I was 16. Didn't understand the greatness of it. :rotfl: I just saw cute boys. ;)

    That's so true. I LOVED Hogans Heroes when I was a kid. Caught an episode a few years ago, and it was just awful. Gilligans Island didn't age well for me, either.

    I'm going to have to disagree on Hogan's Heroes I still love that show

    Waterworld I thought was very interesting, although I don't think it was technically a flop, it got labeled as a flop, but I don't think Universal would have made an attraction out of it if it was a total flop, I just think it had a huge budget and it didn't make a ton of money, I think at the time it was a record budget.

    We love The 13th warrior. Have it on DVD. And sorry, but we love Sahara as well.

    Daniel Craig's in it, what's not to like about the movie.

    Introduced the kids to this one. They love it as much as I do.

    Once again, introduced the kids to this and they both love it. And it is a very quotable movie.

    And yet another one that I got DS hooked on. He loves this movie.

    This one is kinda neat, because they show their list of the biggest bombs, but you can also zero down the each year(s) and find out what the bombs were. The year I was born, Dr Dolittle was the bomb movie.

    The Rocky Horror Picture Show :lovestruc

    It originally flopped big time... It wasn't till it was revived as a midnight experience that it became a cult classic that still runs in theaters to this day!

    It is terrible but so much fun with the props. Lol! They play it every year here for a couple of weekends. There is one guy who goes to every show and makes loud comments at appropriate places that has everyone laughing.

    Mine was Hudson hawk. Edited the list to leave films I consider at least okay, not worthy of being a bomb etc. obviously only ones I've seen. Some I haven't seen. Meant to get round to cowboys vs aliens.

    Also, I don't consider Sahara a bad film per se, I just can't get over the actors they chose and the book they chose. There were much more interesting books to choose, but I guess they would have required even more cash and the production still needed up costing a fortune and pretty much shattered my hopes of seeing a really good cussler film.
