Yeah that was a pretty gnarly end-credits sequence.

Independence Day
.
.
.
. (nothing in between)
.
Infrared Superman (a Japanese movie that would make laugh many, though I guessed it should not)
On the same level: Something by Lars von Trier. I am probably dumb and uncivilized, but I do not get it. I do not see the art in kitchen equipment protruding from a stone-wall, but as I said... I am just too dumb.
.
. (nothing in between)

Pulp Fiction. YEAH. I do not see anything appealing in the blood after the sniff, nor in the limitless boredom that John Travolta is able to transpire. Trash (sorry). But I am just too dumb.

Below this, movies, that I might condone to see again before pushing them up in the list.

clearly you haven't seen Kill Bill, or you would have chosen that instead

I bought Pulp Fiction on DVD to see a Tarentino movie, at last. Since that, I have not felt the urge to repeat the experience.

Hard to choose which is the worst of Tarantino's stuff. Charles Manson died when heard QT was making a film about him.

This is funny. I mixed up that movie with another title. But I was delighted by a Leonard Cohen song and strange video sequence in the credits. Bonus points: Quentin Tarantino wrote the screenplay to both of them.

i think pulp fiction seems odd to most because its really in the viewpoint of being high on drugs.
it must view normal if you go watch the movie amp'd up on heroin ??

Resident Evil, which I saw for nothing at a friend's house. I spent a lot of my youth playing computer games, and soon concluded that games based on films were generally a waste of magnetic tape. So, I didn't have high hopes for a film based on a game (that I've never played), but come on... don't most games have a plot?

Also, a dishonourable mention for The People Under The Stairs. I saw a scene while channel-hopping one night, and it was so unrealistic I thought this must be a spoof horror. I usually like comedy so I switched back later watched maybe 20 mins altogether. Either I missed all the jokes or it was just bad.

Btw, after a few unpleasant experiences I decided never to trust film advice from someone on the desk of a cinema or video hire shop (if the latter even exist now). Either they get bonuses for selling (tickets to) the absolute flops, or something about working in such places makes them "appreciate" a kind of entertainment I just don't get.

or imdb.com
my previously mentioned stargate atlantis is 8.1 (out of 10 i guess) - totally unjustified. so boring, uninnovative, regurgitating all the boring starship society shows (or how do you call the concept of e.g. star trek?), into a cheap mush. blarg!
another film that i value very high only got 4.something... i promise i'll tell when i remember which one.

another thought:
i once watched a whole movie on fast forward (this was the time of VHS) without sound - to my surprise, it was easy to follow the plot and i didn't have the feeling that i missed anything.
made me think about the artistic value of entertainment.

Plan 9 From Outer Space, although I'm not absolutely sure it wasn't meant to be that way.

Never heard of that, I had a quick look as films about operating systems are pretty rare - but it seems they meant a different "plan 9."
