Most disappointing movie, ever.

Post by warpthrone » Tue Nov 06, 2007 4:44 pm

What’s the most disappointing film you have ever seen, it can e anything you like, I think mine would have to a series of unfortunate advents, they were such a good book series, or epic movie, it started off okay then got worse as time went on.
What’s yours?
And I have tea at midday and DINNER at 4pm. But some people say its the other way round. Those people are wrong. Grrr.

I don't generally go see movies that I haven't thoroughly checked out, but let's go for a tie between Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Home on the Range.

OotP was a disappointment simply because I couldn't keep up. There had to be a dozen better ways to adapt that book for screen.

HotR was a disappointment because they used all 60 seconds of good footage in the trailer -- it was one of those films that looked like it was going to be pretty good and ended up just "eh?".

I didn’t think HP was that bad, it was enjoyable. Home on the range, I have very fond memories of sitting on the sofa eating toast watching this with my younger cousin at some sort of Christmas get together

:cheese:

OotP was the best so far visual-wise, and even acting-wise, but they butchered the plot. That's what was disappointing. Nothing made any sense (though admittedly, the book itself could have stood some editing).

"Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban". Apparently they thought it was okay to cut out the best subplot of the series. I want my Marauders!

Probably Cursed. The plot was so over done and the werewolves themselves just looked like angry chipmunks. They say they studied wolf psycholgy, wasn't seeing a lot of that going on, technically wolves like groups and humans tend to too so why on earth were they solitary hunters? o.O Plus the protagonists who were bitten never changed so what was the point in them being bitten? The only thing it added to the story was that 'ooooh werewolves are evil and you have to destroy them' but yeah just another film reincarnated into the same plot. There are also a few romantic comedys out there that advertise a good film but end up just being a load of rubbish. *cough cough* Divorced *cough*

*SPOILERS RESIDE WITHIN* I guess, but I can't be too careful.

Eragon: A speedy series of convenient events and one liners. I swear the dragon "digivolved" 20 minutes into the movie. I guess LoTR spoiled me.

The Dark Is Rising. Bad acting, bad visual effects, bad book adaptation... but it got me out of the house =]

I wasn't too keen on OotP either, it didn't keep me enticed. With the others although I knew the plot it was interesting to wonder how they would adapt it to the screen, OotP didn't have that excitement.

Went to see Wallace and Gromit with my grand-dad once too. He loved it; I caught up on some sleep for an hour. =)

The Shining .. the viewer had NO chance at all to sympathize with Jack. Wendy and Jack seemed to have no relationship at all, it was all too quick and arghh... I actually quit laughing at some point.

I had heard that that one wasn't as good at the rest of their films, but then I didn't hav emy hopes up because I knew that Pixar would have to put out a turkey eventually.

Aww... hey, I love The Cat Returns. I thought it was absolutely adorable... even if the cat king freaked me out... x.X;;

Honestly, not sure... i'd have to agree that Prisoner of Askaban hits high on my list because the entire book was murdered. x.X;;
