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.
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.
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.
i was a really big fan of the book and i was all excited when i heard about the movie and was like "it doesnt matter if the actors are butt-ugly, im sure itll be great"
however many hours later after seeing the movie ......
