@rosborne979,
What would you give New Hampshire -- "The Hotel New Hampshire?" Or "Lolita?"

@Lightwizard,
I think it would be fair to assign Animal House to New Hampshire. It was based on the writers' experiences at Dartmouth, although the movie doesn't mention the location of the fictional Faber College and the filming took place in Oregon.

@joefromchicago,
I'd have to look back but I believe one of the criteria is that the film was actually shot in the state.

BTW, "Hotel New Hampshire" (Hotel Tedesco doubled for the fictitious hotel) was shot in Quebeck and the Kubrick "Lolita" at the ABTC Studios in England.

@edgarblythe,
Would you mind telling me the meaning of 'rotten tomatoe' ?

@xjune,
In this context, it refers to films that stink. The 'e' at the end of tomato is gratuitous.

@xjune,
in the past people would throw rotten fruit and vegetables at stage performers if the play or the actors performance were unsatisfactory

from wikipedia:
"there was a common tradition of throwing rotten tomatoes at bad performers on a stage during the 19th century; today it is usually referenced as a mere metaphor. Embracing it for this protest connotation, the Dutch Socialist party adopted the tomato as their logo."

@Lightwizard,
Does anyone really pay to see this crap? A good book sure beats what I saw on the list.

I had trouble reading the list! While I never heard of most of the movies, it was not surprising that most of the cast members were unknowns or people like Paris Hilton, the Zsa Zsa of her generation.

i was surprised to see that Cathy Bates was in one of the films on the list.

I managed to get down to #30 before I had to stop scrolling.

@Lightwizard,
The only one on the list I've seen was Modigliani

I do remember it as being rather dreary, dismal, and disappointing.

Not just Kathy Bates, De Niro and Pacino also made the list.

@firefly,
Probably of the worst biopics of all time. There's been several on Van Gogh and all good.

@Lightwizard,
When a film is badly cast, badly written, and badly directed, you guarantee it will be a dud.

In different hands, this could have been an interesting and informative story. As you say, the Van Gogh films have been good, and so have other biopics about artists, like, Pollack.

@firefly,
Has there ever been a movie about the life of Picasso? I seem to recall one movie that had a Picasso charaster (I think played by Anthony Quinn).

How bout a movie of the life of Caravaggio? He was one flake.

@farmerman,
There was the documentary, The Mystery of Picasso (1956), which showed the artist actually creating his works.

And there was, Surviving Picasso (1996), a Merchant-Ivory production with Anthony Hopkins as Picasso.

And Picasso was a character in the dreadful, Modigliani.

Quinn played Gauguin in the movie about Van Gogh, Lust for Life.

A candidate from among the newest flicks. I hereby nominate INDEPENDENCE DAY II as probably the stupidest movie of the decade. It was so bad that it was funny. I want my money back. I hope this one goes to video before it loeaves the theaters.

@farmerman,
I figured thusly when I watched the trailer. To be fair, I wasn't a fan of the original movie.

But this one shouldn't have been too much of a surprise since Will Smith wasn't involved and it did get a meager 30% score on RottenTomatoes.com.
