The first list I comprised was made almost entirely of bad horror movies my husband likes to watch. But I realized it isn't those movies that really annoy me--the movies that irk me are the ones I am super excited about and then...
So this is a list of the top ten movies that thoroughly disappointed me--starting with the worst because I know you've got other blogs to visit.
BloodRayne is a great video game with a heavy amount of action. And Rayne is a sexy female vampire character who is a blast to play--lopping off the heads of Nazis with her swords. How could this not make a good movie? Um yeah...bad acting and out of control blood spurting are just a few of the things that made this number one. And it was so bad that Universal Studios made a sequel. So they'll make a sequel to this disaster, but they won't make a sequel to Serenity?
2. Crank 2: High Voltage
The first Crank was a good, fun ride. And I love me some Jason Statham. So I had high hopes for the second--hopes that plummeted in the first few scenes. It is like the attempt was to make the most ridiculous and obnoxious film ever--mission accomplished.
3. House of the Dead
Again one of my favorite video games. We've got the guns and ever thing. And really--how can zombie killing be boring? Oh, House of the Dead, how you disappointed me.
4. Ed Wood
I guess I didn't get it. I've always been a big Tim Burton fan, so I ran to the theater to see this one. It is the only time I've ever walked out on a movie. I even sat though Vanilla Sky. Which leads me to...
5. Vanilla Sky
Watchmen went on for days and months and years. I kept thinking something would happen. Decades passed. I'm not sure it ever really ended.
7. The Phantom Menace
Another movie I was uber excited about. But this badly acted and plotted mess turned me away from the franchise all together. I never did see Episode II or III.
9. Paranormal Activity
I'm usually a big wimp when it comes to horror flicks. I keep a book next to me so I can grab it and frantically start reading to distract myself in the scary parts. So when a horror movie doesn't scare me--that is bad news. Happily, it ended tragically.
This is a kids' movie? This is possibly one of the most depressing movies I've ever seen. The whole thing left me in a lethargic, gloomy mood. I don't do sad movies for a reason. This sucker tricked me, and for that I will never forgive it.
So there it is. What are your worst movies? Any of these you vehemently disagree with?
