    What can make a movie boring? Can it be characters that are not that interesting? Or what about a plot that goes nowhere? Maybe it is these things plus the fact that it's over three hours long! Here now is my list for the most boring movies that I have ever seen!

    Yes It's Another Countdown!!!!!!!

    10. Robin Hood (2010) Cate Blanchett beat out Rachel Weistz and Emma Watson as Maid Marion. Not only is Cate not as pretty as those two, but her acting is dreedful. Couple that with unexciting battles and horrible Shakespearean dialog and you have this horrible wad of cinematic excrement that clocks in at over two and a half hours. If you think that the Costner Prince of Thieves is worse than this you clearly didn't sit through the entire film.

    9. No Country for Old Men (2007) How this won the Oscar is anyone's guess, because it sucks. But at least in beat out Juno that year which is way worse. This is the reason why Javier Bardem is now considered a major Hollywood player. His 70's haircut from this movie is the film's biggest attraction. Yeah there is killing and violence but it's not too exciting. Tommy Lee Jones plays a character that is on the trial-yet he never really finds much out in the end.

    8. Jackie Brown (1997) This will probably upset a lot of people but this movie is not entertaining at all, despite the fact that Pam Grier is insanely hot-especially in her prison getup. Nonetheless what transpires here is mainly Tarantino doing his dialog scenes except he goes overboard and mainly this becomes a sort of love story between a bail bondsman and a beautiful ex-con.

    7. Glengary Glen Ross (1992) All-Star cast. Check. Lots of curse words. Check. So how can this movie be boring? Well it's a look in the lives of real estate agents who are in a massive slump. If you are a fan of constant yelling of profanity then this is the movie for you. Al Pacino, who got top billing for this film, is in it for about of a third of it, and Alec Baldwin is only in it for like ten minutes. Thought I would mention that.

    6. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) The only thing that is curious about this case is why it got green lit in the first place. Based on a very ridiculous short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Brad Pitt is a man that reverts the aging process and we see that he lives a life similar to Forrest Gump's only no where near as amusing. Cate Blanchett is also in this one and yeah she doesn't bring a lot to this either...

    5. Kingdom of Heaven (2005) After the Lord of the Rings Trilogy of Motion Pictures were filmed this is the follow up from Legolas. I suppose it deals with the Spanish Inquisition or something like that. This movie was so long and uninteresting that I can't even remember anything that happens in it. Yeah there are battles yet there is not one memorable moment in the entire thing and it seems like it lasts over two days rather than two hours.

    4. Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007) Well look another Cate Blanchett movie, a pattern maybe? This is actually a sequel to Elizabeth, which chronicles Queen Elizabeth I of England, who is known as one of the most historically important queen of the British Crown. This movie has no memorable quotes or scenes, and even has a small part towards the end that totally rips off of Braveheart.

    3. Eraserhead (1976) Some consider this movie brilliant. After watching this film George Lucas wanted the director David Lynch to direct The Empire Strikes Back. I don't get it...I know that this is one of those movies that you either get or you don't. The entire thing is like one ongoing dream that looks like a nightmare, and in the end it makes no sense at all. So it is much like a dream, a very boring dream.

    2. Titanic (1997) James Cameron made so much money off of teenage girls back then, and even more off of the 3D craze with Avatar, and both are dull and boring. He essentially took historic events and put a goofy romantic spin on it, and made it super long. What we have left is this film which was merely a tool for James Cameron to fuel his massive ego and his massive bank account.

    Well here is Number One so don't fall asleep yet...

    1. Citizen Kane (1941) When this movie was released movie tickets were ten cents and the attention span of the average person was over three hours long. I made up that last sentence but yeah this movie is very boring and the fact that it is considered to be the greatest movie ever made still doesn't really hide the fact that this is very boring. Once you know what the ending is there really is no reason to want to watch this one.

      I actually really dug Citizen Kane, but I can understand the hate. It has become somewhat outdated. The most boring film of all time to me is Rec. What a boring piece of garbage that was. Hysteria does not equal fear and crazy old grannies biting people is just hilarious.

                It was embarrassing enough just seeing the trailer.

                    There is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

                    One is evil and the other one is good. Which wolf will win? The one you feed the most.

                        I liked Citizen Kane, I don't know if you have to be a film person or not but Orson Welles was really cutting edge with his camera movements and frame setups, and coming from radio the sound design was way ahead of it's time.

                        I also liked Glenn Gary Glenn Ross, i will admit it was pretty much one note the whole time but the dialouge was great and the performances.

                        If i had to pick a boring movie that is regarded as a masterpiece i'd have to say Once Upon A Time In America, It was Sergio Leone's last movie and a third in his trilogy so to speak. It was 4 hours long and although it was shot amazingly and the actors in it are great it's not a movie that really grabs you, your just supposed to watch it and appreciate it. And did I really have to wait 4 hours to wonder if James Woods jumped in a god damn garbage truck or not?

                            Eraserhead/Citizen Kane are awesome.

                            I agree with all the others especially No Country for Old Men. Javier Bardem's character was the only thing watchable.

                                    I suppose there is no accounting for taste. It wasn't until i joined RJ that i witnessed someone saying that Mortal Kombat was anything other than human shit.

                                          The movie is somewhat better, if you figure it was all in Seth Rogan's mind.
