Movies the world didn't need.
« on: October 06, 2016, 10:17:50 PM »
Tom hanks in the hijacked ship movie
Tom hanks in the hudson river plane movie
Marky mark vs the boston bombers
Benghazi 2 electric bugaloo
One I'm forgetting because it was so horrible.


Seriously, why the golly do they make these shitty movies?
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Titanic.  Four hours of suppressing the urge to hurl loaves of white bread at the screen.  General anaesthesia would have helped me get through it.

Malcolm X.  Eyes Wide Shut.  I had to fast forward through both of them.  Thank god for videos.

I haven't seen anything terrible lately. I'm advised that Prometheus sucks, but I'm curious about it for some reason.  Maybe it's because I tend to like Wigglely Scott.

Prometheus for sure, since Alien requires no precursor, but while I would say I do not enjoy the films you listed, they were in fact movies, and one can respect the work that went into them.

Prometheus was a really odd film for me: I thoroughly enjoyed it until I came home and thought about it: the more I thought, the less I understood, until eventually I concluded that it was poo.

It helps if you don't consider it as a prequel.

I'm glad you said that as I always thought it was a little shite but didn't want to offend you.

Now all I need to to do is bemoan macs.

j/k

Personally 2016 was a poor year.
Plenty of movies should not have been made.
I am struggling to name a few I loved/hated in fact as most just melted into each other. :-[

I thought The Legend of Tarzan was a complete waste of time and money.

I feel your pain.

Which makes me glad you didn't actually stab yourself.

I watched Twilight out of curiosity.  It was teen girl stupid.  What a courtly vampire.  If you're going to love a bad boy, at least make sure he treats you right.  I think that was the lesson of the film.  It could have been worse.

Not sure what those ^ links are about as they give me nothing but a blank page.

I almost edited it to "de-linkify" it but figured people would just cut and paste anyway.  I normally trust everyone who posts here but a post with not comment for context, displaying only a couple of obfuscated Google redirect links, always pushes my "paranoia" button.
