Films That Disappointed You

I watched Dracula Untold the other day. It was… not good. if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s meant to be a retelling of Dracula’s early days. There are a few good things.

1. Charles Dance

2. Luke Evans

If it was just those two, or even just a story about Charles Dance’s character, the film would have been 1000 times more interesting. But as it stands, the action, while interesting, was pointless, the characters all had the IQ of cheese and were basically there to stand around and die, and the pacing was all over the place. It was a huge disappointment.

This got me thinking about the films that have disappointed me the most over the years. And I came up with 3 that stuck in my mind.

3. Suckerpunch.

I'd never thought that a film about ninja badasses fighting giant Samurai's and Nazi zombies would be dull. Then Suckerpunch happened.

2. The Blair Witch Project

It's not scary, it's full of stupid people doing stupid things. I don't think I've ever wanted characters in a horror movie to die quicker.

1. Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

Darth Maul was in it for 5 minutes. He was the best thing in the entire movie. By a very, very big margin.
