Also, why do action movies have the sound on the action parts twice as loud as the speaking parts?! Seriously, unnecessary! :evil: it just makes all the flashing lights from the bombs and muzzle flashes worse.


Well, you see, explosions and gunshots are louder than speech.

The NeverEnding Story [1984]


Went to see it in a theater with a group from work. It seemed very well named--that didn't stop me from hoping, though.
:hmph:

Terminator Dark Fate.


My dad persuaded me to go see it even though I was pretty sure it was going to suck, it did. I actually really liked the concept of the augmented human character, but the rest of the movie sucked. The abuse of the "I'll be back" line is getting ridiculous. He jumped out of a helicopter, he might live sure, but he's not going to magically be back in the helicopter.

The Room ?

Someone actually financed Mortal Kombat 2 , chew on that

There are scarier movies , example Maniac 1980 or Cannibal Holocaust (or maybe i should specify more disturbing films)

Personally, I recommend the book (LINK) 'Neverending Story' -- the book is much better than the movie!

Everything is so bad in The Room that IMO, is not even worth mentioning here. :lol:

Scariest freaking things I've ever seen.



I saw The Silence of the Lambs too, scary stuff.


I watched this too. I think this will be always be one of Anthony Hopkins' greatest roles.

Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker. Less because it was an absolute shambles, more because the first half hour of it made me feel like I was about to have a seizure. JUMP-CUT JUMP-CUT JUMP-CUT JUMP-CUT JUMP-CUT JUMP-CUT JUMP-CUT, flashing lights and motion blur in yo' face at every cut.

Also, I enjoyed the previous 2 main-line SW films a lot, but this one made them retroactively worse somehow. Fun fact: Palpatine's return WAS set up... just not in any of the films. Chuck Wendig's "Aftermath" trilogy goes into what Palpatine had planned in the event of his death. But you really should not expect the whole audience for a blockbuster to have read the Expanded Universe novels for the plot to make sense! [/rant]

I suffered the misfortune of sitting through a Transformers film with family.

Appalling story, script and acting. The non stop visual effects including shaky cam and fast cuts from one thing to another were disorientating to the point of making me feel unwell.

Not as bad as when I went to see the only 3-D film Ive ever been too. I felt really ill then.


Have you considered watching Bumblebee, the prequel to the entire
Transformers movie series?

If you have not, then do indeed consider taking the time to do so.

As for one I have watched, The Cube Trilogy.

IMO, the first Cube movie will always be the best one.

Cube 2: Hypercube was just a rehash of the first one except with different characters.

Although IMO it was great to learn of how the cube was built in the prequel film called Cube Zero, I didn't think it was needed. IMO, it just ruined the entire mystery of the cube structure.

Titanic

I know this is an outlier opinion but while the effects were spectacular it was just another cliched Romeo and Juliet ripoff.

Nothing. :lol:

I am just that weird about fiction in general. Because I never am a fan of anything.

At worst, any movies could've just wasted my time out of sheer lack of comprehension, let alone any critic.
