Movies Most disappointed?

All the Potter films I've seen - the first 3 - were disappointing and since avoided like the plague. Just one of those films where the books were more interesting.
That reminds me:

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

I went to the midnight showing, I was stoked because I thought the last two movies were amazing but this one . . . this one just failed miserably. I felt like I was watching an episode of the Gilmore Girls wrapped in a thin layer of Harry Potter.

I loved Troy one of my favorite movies.

The first thing that comes to mind for me is Hero, I went to see this movie in theaters with high expectations. I'm a huge fan of Jet Li and I wasn't expecting some sick stuff from him. But the first 25 minutes was so boring that me and my buddy left the theater. Thank god they gave your money back if you leave before the 30 minute mark hits.

Doom...

I love the video game...I'm still obsessed with it to this day. I was so excited for the movie and it blew ass chunks. They changed the storyline, werent enough monsters and they couldnt even get the color of the BFG9000's "bullets" correct.

Stupid stupid stupid.
You make me feel bad about myself for enjoying this movie. It is a guilty pleasure, but a pleasure nonetheless. Ha.

To be fair my expectations were extremely high...it was nothing like it COULD have been IMO. THe demons were supposed to come from HELL...not whatever lame ass story they came up with. Something stupid like an extra chromosome or something...who knows.

Yeah, I agree, the story was defintely going to piss off the die hard Doom fans. It was entertaining enough, I guess a few things could've done better. Maybe they'll make a second one to make up for it? Probably not. Ha.

I fear what they would produce if they made a second one haha

Knowing me I'd still go and watch it though!

The Godfather. It was a good movie, but it SO many people say it's their favorite movie, or that it's a classic, or blah blah blah. It just didn't seem that special to me. Maybe it's one of those movies that was better for its time.

'Star Trek: The Motion Picture'

Those that recommended it to me did say 'spectacle', 'visually stunning' and I can't fault that, but did the writers have a huge mental block?
Nothing happens. There is no excitement - maybe I'm tuned into a different frequency than others, but I didn't register any thrills or indeed interest by the time V'Ger came onto the scene.
I even watched the recent director's edition version.
Yes, stunning and visually impressive - agreed, but is really just an overlong TV episode and a plodding one at that. Sorry trekkies.

Public Enemies - Italiano and I went to see this with high hopes and joy only to be completely pissed and out $10 each, cursing Johnny Depp and how shitty the movie was.
Notion seconded. I especially didn't like the cinematography and editing as I've ranted before in my review. It was awful. Boring, visually confusing and couldn't give a damn about a single character.

Another little let-down that comes to mind is CASINO. After I saw Scorsese's infamous GOODFELLAS I thought this would be just as good. Turns out it's very nearly similar to it in story, progression and acting. It's not exactly bad, but seeing it after GOODFELLAS just kinda downsizes it.

One more: SPIDER-MAN 3. What a clusterfuck. Packed with so much plot and strange scenes with Peter Parker that I was astounded that it was still Raimi who directed. Ugh, Topher Grace as Eddie Brock.


...was anybody actually excited to see WATERWORLD before it came out?

...Just a thought.
