Hollywood (USA) movies: storytelling

Here is a list of under-rated Hollywood (USA) movies that represent storytelling quality:

"Gangs of New York" (2002)
"The Man with Two Brains" (1983)
"Gattaca" (1997)
"Toys" (1992)
"The Elephant Man" (1980)
"Mutiny on the Bounty" (1962)
"Airplane!" (1980)
"Syriana" (2005)
"Cool Hand Luke" (1967)
"The Accused" (1988)
"Citizen Kane" (1941)
"Cape Fear" (1962)

While landmark Hollywood (USA) movies such as "The Wizard of Oz" (1939), "Supergirl" (1984), and "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" (1993) represent imagination quality, their intentional lack of focus on studious storytelling make them more representative of fantasy comforts.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!

Here's my list of crappy Hollywood movies:
1. Mall Cop- I just paid to watch an episode of King of Queens.
2. Gattaca- Or as I like to call it "one and half hours of boredom, how many more damn movies is Jude Law going to be in"
3. Shrek 3 or as I like to call "Same old Shrek movie, I just paid to see again"
4. Men In Black 2 & 3- see no. 3 above.
5. Pirates anything after no. 1- I'm starting to see a trend in Hollywood's creative skills here.
6. A Team- How is that Mr. T was a better actor than Quinton Jackson, who played BA in the movie?
7. Mutant Chronicles- This movie should have been rated PU- it stunk
8. Fast and Furious anything after no. 1.
9. Stealth- was it named for the plane or the stealthiness of the plot.
10. Oceans 11- George Clooney "Hey look everybody me and Brad have proclaimed ourselves the new brat pack".
