Feature-length hardcore porn is pointless. Nobody watches this stuff for the plot.

I watch Caligula for the plot. Although that’s half a hardcore porno, half a real film, so I don’t know if that counts.

Here’s a few I have.

-Temple of Doom is the best of the Indy franchise
-Return of the Jedi is superior to A New Hope
-Eyes Wide Shut is a brilliant film and should be classified as a masterpiece along with the rest of Kubrick’s
filmography
-Death Proof is Tarantino’s highly underrated film of his filmography and deserves much more respect than it gets
-David Lynch’s Dune and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me are unfairly dunked upon (on FWWM, I don’t know how much public
opinion has changed over the years, but it was hated upon release and I consider it to be excellent)
-Harry Potter is an overrated franchise. Not bad, but people considering them to be up there with Star Wars and LotR is
a little silly
-Ju-On (The Grudge) is a top-shelf horror franchise (at least for the first 4 Japanese and first 2 American installments)
-Tim Burton films generally stink. His best work are typically ones where his identity shows the least like Ed Wood,
Batman '89 (not Returns) and Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure
