    A film that I had in mind would be Constinine with Keanu Reeves that came out in 2005. I remember watching the trailers and previews and thinking to myself "Wow, This looks fucking awesome!" When I finally rented the movie with my older sister I kept telling her and myself this is gonna rock and blah blah blah. About 10 minutes into the movie I was layed out on the floor sleeping with my mouth wide open and my sister huddled on the couch. When I finally did wake up the movie was going off and I remember saying to my sister "God, this movie sucked horse dick"


    A few notable mentions

    Super Mario Bros 1993 - Liked it when I was younger but now think its crappy

    Halloween 6: Curse Of Michael Myers - Left me highly pissed off


    Doom - Love The Rock but this film was shitty


    Freddy Vs Jason - There wasn't an actual winner when you go back and think of that ending with Jason coming out of the water with Freddys beheaded head and him winking impling a sequel that never came.



    List your films here that you had high hopes for but turned out to be lame, crappy, and boring.

    Keanu Reeves is so overrated. His lines seem to be delivered pretty much the same not matter what the emotion and pretty much the same in every movie whether it's a sci-fi, comedy, drama, action, or romance.

    I agree with you to an extent. I still can't get past his "surfer voice"

    I did like him in The Matrix trilogy though

    As far as a movie that did not live up to my expectations was this week's Liz & Dick and I watched with very low expectations. I thought it was going to be so bad it would be an unintentional comedy like Showgirls, but it was so bad it was not even that. Lindsay Lohan must be feeling the pressure of this failure because she was arrested today for punching a woman in the face last night at a club.

    I feel the same exact way. I got the chance to watch it a few days ago with my mother and we both agreed that Lindsay was not right for the role and acted miserably in it.

    I just heard about her incident at the club. I really wish she could straighten herself up and get help. I feel bad for her because I did think she was somewhat talented once.

    Most movies won't live up to your expectations if you go off what you see in the trailer. Which is why I generally stay away from trailers and like to read into the summary of the movie instead.

    Although, one movie I did have such strong expectations for was The Dark Knight Rises since I waited so long to finally see it. Don't get me wrong the movie was good but it did not have an impact on me as The Dark Knight did.

    One movie I saw that I literally knew nothing about that blew me away was The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Sometimes when you just go see a movie and know nothing about it, the thrill of uncovering the plot and understanding the characters being presented is a nice experience.

    Agree with you on The Dark Knight Rises. I thought that it was good and a solid film but somewhere in the middle of it it started to drag and get uninteresting. My brother, sister, and cousins fell asleep through most of that and I had to struggle to keep myself from doing the same lol.

    I thought The Dark Knight was slightly better.

    Skyline (2010)

    To this day me and my family still think about how awful it was. The characters were shallow, the story was incomplete and ended abruptly, and the aliens were not talked about enough.

    Other than that, I havn't watched any other movies that have dissapointed me as much, or have been even close to disappointing me as much.

    I'm very rarely disappointed with films, I'm pretty easy to please. But Honey with Jessica Alba in it was probably the worst movie I've ever seen. I was almost angry I watched it. Blegh.

    Superman Returns and Green Lantern were two HUGE let downs for me. I am a huge Green Lantern fan in general, but that was an AWFUL movie.

    Expendables part 2 was just corny and I have never seen the first one, but I am guessing it is equally as bad as the second.

    Wing Commander, Street Fighter, and Pearl Harbor come to mind.

    Wing Commander was especially disappointing because the director of the movie also directed the live-action cinematic scenes in the game the movie was based on.

    hey, speak for yourself, heheh. You didn't get to watch Ryan Reynolds walk around in a skin-tight motion-capture suit for three weeks while we were shooting it down here icon_cool.gif

    Oh God -- The Black Dahlia! Only Mia Kirshner as Elizabeth Short had any presence or, weirdly, life. Everyone else looked like they were playing dress-up. The plot was ridiculous and had zilch do with the actual case. David Lynch could've directed this in his sleep and nailed it.

    Texas Killing Fields was a real let-down, especially since the real-life murders it's based on are so terrifying. The cops in the movie were so pathetically stupid, constantly splitting up when they should stay together.

    Most horror film remakes always suck but there are a few that I thought were good.

    I try to act as if Halloween Ressurection never happened. God it was terrible

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidSo what grabbed my attention was the comment about "sucking horse dick."

    Was that really meant as a derogatory comment?

    Cuz from my personal experience I find the act to be anything but displeasing. icon_idea.gificon_idea.gif



    I was about 15 at the time and was known for having a vulgar mouth but I was so angry with this movie and that is what I thought of it at the time. Looking back on it I do feel like my comment was slightly "immature."
