    Well obviously, The Deer Hunter and Apocalypse Now to start with, I'm sure there will be others.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    Moulin Rouge - a busy, noisy mess of a film.
    Any film which relies on CGI to the extent that it overwhelms everything.
    Sex lives of the potato men - crass and unfunny.
    Jupiter Assending - I wish we had left it at the charity shop where we found it!
    Carry on Emmannuelle - I love the Carry on films, but this was a real stinker (it was the last one ever made from the original era).
    I'll try and think of some more.

    I'm no film buff and haven't seen Gone With The Wind but as Donald J Trump seems to like it I'll go with that. I can hear the cretin now banging on about how he "built the greatest economy the world has ever seen".

    Gone With The Wind is a masterpiece, you really should watch it. Vivien Leigh gives one of the all-time great performances.

    Worst films (this is where I wish I'd kept up my film reviewing on IMDB after Uni)

    Carry on Emmannuelle (amazing it got made, given how awful Carry on England was)
    A Perfect Storm ("1 Fish Finger out of 10" I said at the time)
    The Avengers
    The Rachel Papers
    Around the World in 80 Days ("I was hoping that by the time Fogg got to America he would sell Princess and his annoying little Butler to the Indians in return for a script")
    Eyes Wide Shut

    Anything with Jason Statham
    Most zombie apocalypse films
    All the chick-flicks my wife is currently choosing on Netflix
    Anything Disney has produce din the last 30 years.

    Unwatchable:

    Any film that values special effects over plot
    Avengers/Superman/Batman
    The Hangover
    American Pie
    James Bond
    Star Wars
    Hugh Grant/Richard Curtis rom-coms

    Overrated:

    Woody Allen - laughs are thin on the ground, don’t see the appeal
    The Graduate - always falls flat in my house
    Casablanca - there are far better films of that ilk
    Harry Potter - one film was enough
    The Godfather - just tedious now
    Breakfast At Tiffanys - boring and unfunny

    Highlander 2 (et seq)
    The Ladykillers (the remake obviously)

    (most sequels and remakes turn out to be rubbish, not all of course.)

    Anything with Jim Carrey or Will Ferrell in

    Film adaptations of British TV sitcoms

    Most musicals

    Anything involving an African safari

    Any film where the title starts "They" as in They Flew to Bruges will usually be drivel.

    Deer Hunter
    Raging Bull
    Fight Club
    Leon
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Man Who Knew Too Much
    Fargo

    Mainly long, boring, self-absorbed.
