    Default Bad Movies AKA taking one for the team

    Lean on Pete < I can't even talk about how bad this was. Bait and switch based on the trailer. Please do not see this movie.

    Next.

    Everyone should know this already, but, Batman vs Superman is really bad.

    There are many, many movies in my "Continue watching" queue on Netflix, abandoned 5 minutes in they were so bad.

    But the sound is great for demoing your speakers and subs.

    I try to give movies 30 minutes before abandoning, but dont always make it. I really hate the ones that show a ton of promise up until 3/4 of the way through or so and suddenly lose momentum, and you can tell the writers ran out of ideas on how to play it out.

    I would rather watch a Todd Solondz film about pedophilia than have to sit through A Tree of Life. I ran out of the theater. Ethereal space scenes just weren't doing it for me. The director had some agenda that wasn't jiving with the film or me but damn that flick sucked. Cocoon (!) is the last movie I remember walking out of : )

    ^^^ Five minutes. That's how long I could sit through that pompous, first-year-film-student-project tripe.

    Only two movies I've ever walked out of:

    The Hills Have Eyes - My wife and I went to see it for some stupid reason - we don't even like horror movies. The monsters raping the people scene was the deal breaker.

    Gosford Park. A buddy and I went and saw it when we were in high school. I have no idea why two 16yr old guys thought it would be a good movie...we were the youngest people in there by several decades.

    Two walk outs,
    Austin Powers, 15 min, odd since the group really liked Wayne's World.
    American Werewolf, 20 min, horror movies don't work without James Whale & Boris Karloff.

    Akira, didn't walk out, but was ragged about picking it for a couple years.

    I have twice attempted to watch "John Carter" -- both times were on a plane, if that explains anything -- and both times I gave up after ~20 or 30 minutes. The most insipidly discombobulated nonsense of a plot, performed by people who didn't even have the professionalism to try to figure out what their vapid clichéd lines were supposed to mean.

    Wifey and I walked out of Bruno after 30 mins but we should've left sooner. I forget the scene but I want to say he was jerking off a midget or something but we had been squirming in our seats since it started and looked at each other and left which was a shame because with young kids a movie theater is a real treat.

    Oh, I love Borat. I mean, I can't even explain how much I enjoy it. I 100% understand why it's not for everyone...but man, I really love that movie. I don't remember him jerking off a midget though? Been a while since I've seen it though.

    When he gets the politician from my home state of GA to eat cheese, and tells him it's made from his wife's breast milk - I nearly died laughing.
    When he's naked and they have black censor bar over his bits and pieces, and it's like 2ft long - again, I nearly died laughing.
    When he went to the southern dinner party and insulted people, I nearly died, again.

    One guy tells him that he's retired, and Borat looks around the table and says "it's very nice, you let the retard eat here, with you"
    and the final straw, talking about the women at the table "In my country, they would go crazy over these two! This one...not so much...."
    AH-HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    His 2nd movie, where he's a gay model or something, I didn't enjoy. The opening scene was a dancing singing penis if my memory is right. I'll never forget, when we saw it (in the theater) there was a big group of gypsy women and a bunch of little kids. They didn't make it through the whole movie hahaha. (and yes, real gypsies - these folks)

    I think that's the one Hollis was talking about.

    Anyway, I despised The English Patient. Not sure why since so many people loved it, but I couldn't stand it.

    The Fountain. I thought Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz, critical acclaim... Should be good. What a waste of time. Total WTF at the end.

    I'm a pretty big fan of all things Tolkien but most of The Hobbit trilogy was pretty painful. Peter Jackson did try to explore aspects of The (probably unfilmable) Silmarillion, which was great for fanboys like myself, but confusing to anyone not familiar with Tolkien's work and the rest of the films were full of painful, over-the-top CGI sequences. It's hard to make what was basically a children's story into a dark, three piece epic work. It was a money grab and that was sad after the great LOTR trilogy, which itself had some bad sequences and wasn't totally true to the original story, altering it and editing it for Hollywood neatness.

    As prequels go, it was disappointing.

    I saw The English Patient, Shakespeare In Love, plus another movie as a triple feature at Phipps Plaza in Atlanta. That was a long day at the movies but I don't remember loving nor disliking The English Patient.

    Dustin, I liked Borat but Bruno was insufferable. i grew up in Vidalia so had the same reaction to the scenes you described. I never saw his dictator film because Bruno was so lame the 30 mins I saw anyway.

    John Carter becomes significantly better when you think of the movie as Tim Riggins on Mars.

    Wow, I totally misread your statement the first time around. You very clearly wrote Bruno, but I read it as Borat. I'll blame it on the new baby and lack of sleep and all that jazz.
