Have you ever been all geared up to go see a movie you have been dying to see and it stunk? Or wasn't what you thought it would be. It is so disappointing when you have been waiting in anticipation and your are all excited to see it, and it didnt at all meet your expectations. Or you didnt think it was that funny. For example, I love the movies, The Mummy and The Mummy returns. Now when I saw the third one, I was very disappointed with it. Special effects were great but it just didnt seem to have what the other 2 had. It lacked lustre so to speak. Any of my fellow mylotters had this problem?

I have to agree with brown1 that was a stinker. Another movie which is a bit similar with the running with camera scheme is cloverfield. I really didn't like the movie it was so hyped out to be really good and it was just about average.

I kind of liked Cloverfield but the camera shots and the running really had me dizzy and nauseous. I hope nobody comes out with another movie with people running around with cameras. Cloverfield was just too much with all the screaming and shaky stuff.

For me it was the recent Mike Myers movie Love Guru. After sitting for 10 hours as a background performer, it really wasn't worth watching it when it finally came out. It seemed good as they were filming it the day I sat there, but when it came out, I didn't see anything good about it.

awww, that's too bad. I haven't seen it yet. I guess I can hold off on seeing that one.

Oh yeah, sadly, that happens all too often with movies. I skipped the third Mummy movie because I've been hearing everyone say it's a waste of time. I might see it on TV. Looks like Rachel Weisz wisely opted out of that one. Too bad for Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh. As for movies I've been disappointed with, well, the second and third Pirates of the Caribbean are on my list. In my opinion, sequels generally don't do as well as their predecessors.

THE HAPPENING. I wish I would have listened to the critics. I am fan of scary movies that really gives you the creeps after you walk out of the theater. This movie was so awful that if I knew where M.Night Shamayalan lives I will knock on his door and punch him as soon as he opens it. I made my boyfriend take me to go see it because it has Mark Wahlberg in it and I absolutely love him. My boyfriend had 2 free passes and we used it on that pathetic movie. I spent the entire movie trying to figure out what the heck was going on. The ending blew chunks. It was a hot mess. We were so upset that we actually had a good laugh in the car on our way home. Dont rent it. It is not worth it.

How about The Blair Witch project? I still get nightmares about having to sit through this turkey. If you ever want to get some sleep some night. Put this one on.

The Mummy 3 changed its aura by replacing the lead characters and changing the scenery and really lost its charm to the audience. Well enough with that, I think Jet Li and Michelle Yeo did a great job on that movie. There are a lot of movies that I've watched and was really a stinker and the only reason people watch that movie is do something (sexually) with their partner. So I barely go to moviehouse nowadays because of that reason and maybe because I don't have the money to afford tickets. Its a whopping 100 peso plus for one ticket, so that's a big no-no for me.

spiderman 3 was horrible. It looked great from the commericals but i just didnt like it at all. Same goes with a couple other sequels. I guess that the problem with sequels they nevr live up to the first one.
