Movies that blow - Page 25

post #361 of 718
"All the King's Men" sucks a lot. I turned it off halfway through, mainly because the plot is so incredibly boring and the movie has tons of retarded flashbacks that mean nothing. Then, of course, there's James Gandolfini. Worst Bayou accent I have EVER heard. He's half the reason I stopped watching it.

I actually liked The Departed. Then again, I never expect anything good from Leonardo DiCaprio.

Anyhow, Casino Royale was pretty meh.

I guess you can view it either as an 80s remake or as a standalone cop movie...but I think it fails on both counts. As a remake with no cameos and basically no references to the original other than having one white guy and one black guy on vice in Miami...it fails. As a standalone cop movie, it was too long and not anywhere near interesting enough. Acting was mediocre with an overdose of overacted overintensity. It failed there too.

I agree 100% with this. It was a terrible movie. I've never been so bored in a movie with so much action taking place. I think my main problem was that the movie took itself so seriously. Part of the fun of the original television show was that, even though it was completely over the top, it was done at least somewhat tongue-in-cheek (and the fact that the two leads, particularly Don Johnson, seemed to be utterly oblivious to this made it that much more entertaining). The movie was completely over the top without any sense of irony. We are supposed to take seriously the idea that there are vice cops in Miami with barely concealed secret identities who spend their days and nights zooming back and forth to Cuba in their speed boats. I don't mind a little fantasy in my escapism, but come on!

Interesting. I haven't seen it, but it's getting some pretty good reviews. What about it made it so bad to you?

You need to see the original, version. It is superb.

Most recent ones I can think of is Flags of Our Fathers and Borat. Both utterly shit.

A History of Violence... what was the point? Casting sucked. Acting sucked. Plot sucked. Action sucked. Dialog sucked. Pace sucked. Ending sucked.

Haha, I honestly thought I was the only one. Terrible movie.

Some people just have no taste in movies. The Departed is still the worst movie I've seen so far this year. And I've seen about 35 movies since then. I watched National Lampoon's Van Wilder 2: The Rise Of Taj yesteday, and it was better than The Departed.

i liked a 'history of viloence'. you have to be willing to let go and see what viggo sees. step into his shoes. it helps if you see it in a theater.

it seems everyone who saw 'lost in translation' in a theater liked it. everyone who rented it didn't like it.

'a history of violence' is like that too.

The Prestige should be prosecuted by the EPA. It emits an immensely pungent stench, a foul odour that is likely toxic

I finally saw The Departed. While I wouldn't rate it as the best picture of the year, it was far from the worst movie I've seen. I thought it was a good story with good acting, but with some fairly glaring plot points. Scorcese seemed to be much more interested in his characters and setting (as he always is) than with the actual plot. That said, I thought it held together pretty well until [SPOILER ALERT] Jack Nicholson's character was killed. To be fair, however, the plotline for Infernal Affairs wasn't much more complicated.

At any rate, I wouldn't have given The Departed an Oscar, but it was far, far better than The Black Dahlia, for example.

You guys are all full of it.

Borat = funny. Not oscar worthy but a funny good time.
Departed = Definately a great movie. Not 10/10 but really good (the ending was a bit retarded though)
The Prestige = another good movie. Convuluted but fun. Anything with Christian Bale is bound to be decent

And thats final.

Worst movie ever is Little Miss Sunshine

Overrated for sure. But Olive and Grandpa made the movie worth watching.
