    Here are mine:

    1) 1995's "Heat" - even an all-very talented cast (Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Jon Voigt, Val Kilmer, Ashley Judd, etc) + director Michael Mann couldn't help this 3 hour soap opera fest. In the highly anticipated scenes where Pacino and DeNiro met, they fizzled.

    2) 1996's "Ransom" - if Mel Gibson and Ron Howard weren't tied to this movie, then it would likely have gone to some cable tv channel with a cast of unknowns. Otherwise, a typical, formulaic movie about a family member from rich family gets kidnapped, demands a lot of $$$, and the father in charge decides to take matters into his own hands instead of giving it to the authorities.

    3) 1996's "Mars Attacks!" - it wasn't supposed to be mainstream, but quirky with a different twist. However, it wasn't even the least bit funny, and whoever wrote the script just had no idea what direction the plot was going. Can't remember a short less than 2 hour movie that felt like a 5+ hour one.

    4) 1999's "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace" - when the "Star Wars" trilogy (parts 4-6) came out many years prior, I was told that the next set (parts 1-3) would come out when I became an adult. Ultimately, I was very underwhelmed when I saw this, many years later.

    5) 2000's "Erin Brockovich" - this critically acclaimed and Academy Award winning movie was nothing more than the usual tv movie of the week.

    6) 2000's "Mission: Impossible 2" - every single action scene in this movie was completely dull.

    You should be ashamed of yourself for having “Heat” on this list at all.

    Mine is anything directed by Terrence Malick. His movies are straight hot garbage.

    Heat? Awesome movie

    My most boring:

    1) Lord of the Rings - saw this in the theater and fell asleep.

    2) The Thin Red Line - rented this with my buddies and we turned it off half way through. I remember one scene where the shot focused on a leaf for what seemed like a minute. Just horrible.

    My dad and I walked out of “The Thin Red Line” about a half hour in. That’s a Malick movie. Total trash.

    Gods and Generals is another one I couldn’t make it through. Incredibly boring.

    Smart move leaving. How anyone could sit through the whole thing is beyond me.

    I’ll probably get some crap for this, but I thought watching “Lincoln” was like watching paint dry.

    At the risk of sounding like an atheist given how well they were received, There Will Be Blood and Titanic are on my short list to cure insomnia. I too thought The Thin Red Line was excruciating, particularly considering it was blessed with a very talented cast. But having fallen asleep all 4 times my wife and kids tried to get me to watch it I have to go with The Blair Witch Project as the single most boring movie I've never quite seen.

    Honestly, most of them. I'm pretty hard to please with movies. I've seen a lot, and my mindset with everything tends to be 'make it something new and better'. When it's the exact same story, over and over, without any twists, I just feel like my time is better used elsewhere.

    There're also a lot of movies that I loved the first time around that I wouldn't want to watch again. I already know what's going to happen, and I'm not going to suppress my memory...

    I am going to get my ass kicked here, but....basically all superhero movies put me to sleep...even Infinity War....

    Although, I enjoyed Antman and Wasp a bit....I think it was the miniature stuff that made it interesting.

    I liked the DK Triology...but those are the only D.C. movies I liked....those and "Man of Steel"...the rest sucked...

    As for Marvel...I liked the original spiderman with Tobey McGuire....the first Iron Man movie....

    I just think it's overly saturated right now...I haven't been to the theater to see a superhero movie since the DK returns. Been watching them all on Netflix...and been taking 2-3 days to finish them.

    I have to say I didn't like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It was a clever idea, a man reverse-aging, but I thought it was really boring. Same with Meet Joe Black. Brad Pitt has way more hits than misses, but those two for me, didn't care for them. Benjamin Button was really popular though and was big with the Oscar crowd, so maybe I'm missing something.

    From where I sit you aren't missing anything with Benjamin Button, it's put me to sleep twice. For my money Pitt's most excruciatingly dull movie was Legends of the Fall, another movie with a really good cast that just didn't feed the bulldog.

    There Will Be Blood was a damn well acted movie with some damn good scenes, there's a difference.
