"The Girl with the Dragon tattoo sucked hard"
was that a porno?
Maybe I should make that one then. Ive got the cam corder and the stick now all I need....
Burt reynolds action film with no action and worse still, no sticks
You should try "Stickmen" it's a film about Pool I think - had it on DVD once, but never actually got to watch it!
apologies if it's been said but if not:
The Golden Compass.
One of the worst transitions from book to film I've ever seen.
Going to have to say Twilight. A proper girls film, a serious shocker. I went with a girl to watch new moon i think it was called, the second one and it was one of the worst films ever. The things I do haha.
Another terrible movie I watched which was an absolute bore was hannibal I think it was called.
Oh and wrong turn 2. So bad it was actually hilarious without intention.
just for the record, the fast and furious series is a major success and film 5 is pretty great for a fun summer movie. And batman begins and the dark knight are amazing movies.
oh and so is harry potter just for the record...everything about the harry potter series = win. Yes I said it.
Alleged comedies like 'Date Movie' and 'vampires suck' that are churned out year after year
John Carter it seems...
Think some critics in here are abit up their own arse, just because you didnt enjoy a movie doesnt mean others didnt or that it didnt have a story to tell.
Its just a light hearted thread for peoples views thats all mate. Nobody has suggested we're arranging a DVD burning session or a boycott.
Fair point but the thread title is movies that should never have been made, not what movie annoyed me this week? Theres the what film i just saw for slating films you didnt enjoy etc.
It just makes me sad to hear people saying certain films such as David Finchers version of Girl with a Dragon Tattoo are shit, but its been critically acclaimed and there was no reference to why it shouldnt have been created.
I'm guilty as the next man i guess, i should really state why i believe movies i comment on should not have been made. I suppose its laziness on my behalf. Its easier to just say somethings shit that you dont like than to go into too much detail
I cant speak for others but i only use the 'what film i just watched' thread for movies i have recently watched
As for films being 'critically acclaimed'...i dont tend to listen to critics and film reviewers after the glowing reviews they gave Heath Ledger in the Dark Night. I still say licking your lips repeatedly did not enhance the psychopathic nature of the Joker one bit, and that Big Jack blew him out of the water in the Micheal Keaton version...also if he hadnt of sadly passed away he would have never got the praise he did for that role.
If you want to give your views of the 'Girl with a tattoo' (havent seen it myself) then write one up in the thread weve talked about so others can see the counter argument and get a balanced review
Any film that attempts to re tell history incorrectly (such as the Americans retrieving the Enigma coding machine, or Ben Affleck winning the Battle of Britain)
Im not too fussed on critically acclaimed movies/ tv shows either, generally speaking unless they are an enjoyable experience i.e The Lord of the Rings, Shawshank Redemption, Alien, Game of Thrones etc. Was just using it as evidence to back up that really slating a movie is alot different to it should never have been made. Theres an argument that Girl with a tattoo didnt need an english version but looking at IMDb as an evidence pool the ratings critics/public are better than the swedish version thus you would think that it has justified its creation. i am fully aware of everyones entitlement to their own opinion but justifying it aswell would be nice.
Not directing an onslaught at anyone just saying my thoughts.
This movie was amazing and is a French classic.
This one never should have been made. Never seen it, never will.
I haven't seen the english version of that ^^ - watched the french version @ A-level iirc (not for work, just in the class around xmas time I think - or was it GCSE....) Was very good.
im at work... what movies are they... being a french cinema'phile
yeah, good movie
The Italian Job (the remake) Just, no!
