MOVIES I PLAN TO NEVER, EVER SEE

From this discussion in Name That Film:


I've learned from bitter experience that any movie that can plausibly be described as "a triumph of the human spirit" is bunk. Hence, I've avoided the following movies like the plague:

Life is Beautiful
Dances with Wolves
Schindler's List
Crash (2004)
Children of Huang Shi
Biko
Gandhi
Amistad
Bravehart

Forrest Gump

These sort of Oscar-bait movies drop off the best-of lists after a few years anyway, to be remembered only as a historical record of what was considered serious and important in the past. (Gentleman's Agreement, A Patch of Blue, The Greatest Show on Earth, anyone?)

So does that mean that you just MIGHT see Game Plan, with the Rock getting heart to heart with his sweet, long lost daughter?

Noooo.....I forgot to mention, anything described as "heartwarming" is also a must to avoid.
