Worst Move You've Ever Seen?

Recommended Posts

No Knivy, did not like the Bourne's. They were not true novel adaptations. Not with the fact that Jason as created to take down Carlos the Jackal, and that the Jackal took down Headstone 71 and killed Jason's own father in the process. These films are examples of how not to do these adaptations, The Lord of the Rings and Watchmen are the perfect example of doing them as good as you can. The Bourne's were to me insults to brilliant books.

Another movie that I despise soooooooo much that I cannot finish is Green Lantern!! That was ughhhhhhhhhhh!!! What were they thinking!?!?!?!? Turned off when they flicked to his girlfriend after showing his friend. Saw the final battle a year later and wished Darkseid had killed them all, it was soooo horrible. And don't get me started on the fatheads :P

I actually tried to read the books after watching the movies since I liked them so much. Couldn't even get through half of the first book. Even with only partially reading the books I could tell that the movies aren't a good adaptation. 

 

However, as movies themselves, the Bourne movies are great.

 

 

 

Back to the purpose of this thread, Hansel and Gretel. Oh my god the movie is bad.

The first movie that came to mind was The Atonement. Oh my gosh I hate that film. I understand that it's super artsy and the acting wasn't bad (and it's saving grace for me was having James McAvoy in it :rolleyes: ), but the story I found so stupid. I know it one heaps of Academy awards, but seriously...

Although I'm a bit of a contradiction in that I found a film with rather good acting awful and a movie (The Phantom Menace) with admittedly bad acting (except for Liam Nesson cause that man can do no wrong) really awesome. Maybe it's just because I'm pretty biased towards anything Star Wars, no matter how bad the writing is :rolleyes:

 

Grown Ups 2 was pretty bad too.

saw the second Percy Jackson movie, and that is the first time I have actually cringed through the entirety of the movie.

The Village - Refund please.

 

Won't watch a Shyamalan movie again methinks. 

Shyamalan=barfnoodles.

He ruined Avatar.

 

Worst I've ever seen is called "Severed Ways" It's about the vikings discussing north america.

 

It's awful.

Heavy metal soundtrack, headbanging vikings, anachronistic conversation (I'm certain Norse warriors wouldn't have said their dinner was 'killer fish')

And about an hour in...

well, what happens is so gross it breaks the pg-13 barrier on DM.

It was that bad ?!?!? Mind you, I heard nothing about it from anyone.

 

I certainly thought so.  Worse than the first one, imo.

Another movie I consider to be a bad movie for me is Star Trek Into Darkness. Put me off Star Trek for years after watching it. Beyond was O.K, won't touch anything going forward I hated it so much. Can only watch Wrath of Kahn in bits. Cannot watch it through any more because of JJ's putrid gutter burned rubbish, and that was my favourite sci-fi movie. Left the theatre giving it a 4/10, now 0/10. Horrible

I stand by my OP.

 

Did...did you not look at a synopsis or a movie poster before you went to see it?

Dazed and Confused. My sis rented it from Blockbuster shortly after it came out on video, and I sat through that debacle before she returned it. I kept waiting for something to happen, some story development, some semblance of plot, and it never did. The entire movie never actually had anything happen.

    • I am currently rereading WOT for the first time since first reading it. I was just reading the following quote from chapter 12.   “You must handle it,” Moiraine said in answer to something unheard from Lan. “He will remember too much as it is, and no help for it. If I stand out in his thoughts. . . .”   I am trying to figure out what this might be referring to and can't remember what it might be. If somebody could point out what this is meant to reference I would appreciate it. 
    • skin color is irrelevant in wot and I could care less how they cast it.  If they go by the books there will be many races and cultures and main characters like Tuon will be black.  All that is great, no problem.  Just hope they keep the modern political narratives out of this.  I want it to be more like game of thrones where they can do surprising things without offending someone.  If they have to be politically correct then it will ruin the tv show.  Many of the characters have do offensive things and have offensive thoughts so hopefully they can let that shine through.   One of the key traits of the wheel of time was all the different perspectives and all the communication barriers that would crop up between different groups of people.  hopefully they can let all that shine and they will need a very diverse cast to make it happen. 
    • In this thread: some people who are gonna lose their shit when non white actors get cast despite most characters not having an explicitly established skin colour and Randland being a far future setting where skin colour is entirely irrelevant.
