Most Disappointing Films?

Not necessarily BAD films; but have you ever gone to see a movie you had certain (possibly high) expectations for and just end up totally let down by it? Or it's far different from what you though it'd be and therefore disappointing? Or there's just a lot of talent behind the film and it all goes to waste?

What are some movies you looked forward to until you actually saw them?

For last year, I was looking forward to both Funny People and Public Enemies. I came out disappointed by both of them, especially Public Enemies - I mean, Mann, Depp and Bale? Shoulda been way better.

Anyway, please share your thoughts!

The Road. I waited quite a while for it and they left so much impactful stuff from the book out. There was very little of the poetic prose put into narration in the film.

The only 2 standout things in it were Robert Duvall and the cinematography.

Ah, I very much agree with this too. I left the film very underwhelmed. Unlike how I felt when I finished the novel.

The Road is a good choice.

Also, Snakeyes' sig reminded me of one - The Fountain. I was really excited over that movie and ended up feeling very underwhelmed by it.

I think I know what you mean. I actually left feeling somewhat underwhelmed the first time I saw The Fountain (in theaters). The trailer (s) had me expecting something else, but I've grown to love the movie since then.

It felt very messy and nearly incoherent. You could tell why Aronofsky had such problems with it during production.

I really appreciate the ambition that it required to make and didn't dislike it, just thought it could have been a lot better.

Spider-Man 3 is probably the most disappointing movie I've seen in theaters.

The Fountain for me too
Casablanca
Watchmen
Clerks
LA Confidential
Factory Girl - Sienna Miller was fantastic in her role but the rest of the film was a big let down

That's all that is coming to mind at the moment.

With The Fountain, I was impressed. I didn't expect it to be as good as it was. That's probably because I didn't really know about it and saw a preview for it on another DVD, thought it looked good, and rented it the next day. I remember coming on here, at KMC, and posting my glee for it. My wife said she couldn't really follow it...which goes along with what Backfire was saying about it being a tad messy.



I was probably disappointed by that one Viking movie . I forget what it's called..was recent....damn...

Probably the biggest let down of any film I've seen is The Big Lebowski not one single person that saw this film, gave it a bad rec. Everyone I know: Work, Family, Friends, KMC peeps, said it was awesome. I was so incredibly disappointed with the film. I don't think I've ever had that much let down of any film I've seen. I tried to watch it again...but I just couldn't. It was too boring. I can't watch average films more than once.
