Have you ever been anxious to watch a movie, cause of all the hype surrounding it then you finally get to see the movie and you are totally let down over it? I have had this happen to me so many times now, that I try not to get too excited about any movie now days.

Thank you for your response chiyosan. I personally think if we don't get too excited or anxious to watch any one particular movie, when we actually do watch one we heard hype about it won't be too disappointing.

A lot of people raved and loved Pirates of the Caribbean 3, the final instalment but when I went to see it at the movies I was very let down, I had really enjoyed the first two, the second film was the best, and I was hoping for a great finale, but no, I couldn't understand Calypso which ruined it a lot for me and it just didn't do the ending justice. I enjoyed Johnny Depp though because he's good in everything he does.

Thank you for the response. Sorry you were let down by a movie you had your hopes up over. It's just too bad, movie theathers don't have a money back guarantee. *laughing*

There was this one movie called Star Trek 10. It was AT LEAST supposed to be DECENT... ...it was horrible. -_- Probably the worst one out.

I felt that way about Borat. I was expecting to be so funny. To me it wasn't at all.

Thank you for your response. I know what you mean about wanting to watch a comedy and expecting to laugh non stop, and it doesn't even get a chuckle out of you. Sorry!

Me and my best friend hired two new vids (at the time) and were really looking foward to girls night in the first movie was litterally 3 hours of the one set over and over in and out up and down like come on! some people needs some more visual stimulation to keep up their interests.... but there was no special effects in this beauty. For our own amusment we then told a heap of people to hire it because it was awsome, so they had to sit through it too!

For me it was Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I don't usually go to movies, I wait for them to come to video or dvd, but I went to see this one because I was expecting it to be really good. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good either. Not worth sitting in a theater for.

Thank you for your response. I too have been to the movies where the movie was ok. It wasn't a bad move, but not something I would want to watch again.

Yeh The Black Dahila was a huge disappointment but i have had that happen several times. You go to the movie store and read the back of a movie and go Wow this sounds great and you take it home and it sucks. It is the same thing with books they like to trick you. Its like watching a movie preview that makes the movie look awesome but then realising it was all an act to get you to watch the movie. Hollywood is smart that way they lure you in with promise then disappoint.

Thank you for your response molly. You are the second one to mention "The Black Dahila" was a disappointment. I know for sure, I won't waste my time or money on it.

Off the top of my head, the last two movie that let me down were "Children Of Men" and "The Black Dahlia". "The Black Dahlia" was just stupid, unintentionally funny, and borderline parody of itself. I was looking foward to it, because it was based on a novel by the same writer as "L.A. Confidential". And "Children Of Men" wasn't bad, I was just expecting something great from the previews and the critics reviews.

I haven't seen either movie, so thank you kindly for letting me know they aren't worth my time to watch them. *smiling* I'm just tired of getting all excited and anxious to watch a movie and then like you said, it turns out it wasn't as good as the critic reviews had made it out to be. But by time you find that out, you done wasted your money to watch it.
