The Exorcist (1973)

never played with a ouiji board because of this

watched this for the first time this weekend, preparing myself to be thoroughly petrified, I braced myself for some scary stuff... that never really happened. No I don't watch horror movies so I'm pretty much a wuss, but still, not freaked out by this one. I'm sure this was pretty disturbing in 1973, but it just isn't in 2013 The movie had entirely too much exposition. It could have easily been a half hour shorter. The beginning of the movie shows Max Von Sydow at an archaeological dig in Iraq. Why is this scene in the movie??? Other characters say he'd been there, we don't need to see it.

When in Rome Review comment

P.S. there is an older film from 1952 with the same title, but its a good movie.

Watchmen Review comment

That is really funny. My roommate made a pact with his girlfriend that he would see Confessions of a shopaholic for seeing this movie. I agree, the movie kind of sucked.

The Golden Compass Review comment

I totally agree with you.. I've heard the budget was around 180million, like the LOTR and Harry Potter films. Who is crazy enough to waste all that money into this clutter of a movie.
