Movies that you got really excited for that turned out to be AWFUL. Not just in your own opinion, but something that got a bad reception. Movies that disappointed everyone.

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

GANGS OF NEW YORK tops that list for me.  What a long, boring, pointless movie!

Different strokes, I guess, 66!  I liked ALL of those . . . the prequels probably the least, but ST and JURASSIC PARK are both aces in my book!

I said that critics hate. Movies that overall weren't well received. It's one thing to name popular movies you hate, it's harder to name ones that made both you and your friends mad. As for me...

Thor. Both my Dad and I were very disappointed.

My Dad is a huge Thor fan. Only comic he read as a child.

Napoleon Dynamite

not saying it is without merit, but from all the hype I was expecting a laugh -a-minute romp. what I got was virtually a silent movie on methodrone


edit: it's impossible to answer this according to my own taste and what the critics thought, I don't really pay much attention to 'the critics'

I like a lot of the movies mentioned, especially Gangs of New York.

I would easily second Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I actually halfway enjoyed the movie, but it should never have been made. It certainly isn't Indiana Jones.

The Star Wars prequels are also pretty bad. Even there, I really enjoyed Attack of the Clones, but I have one word for you. Midichlorians. Shut up, George Lucas! Shut up! Don't ever talk again!

The Transformers movies. They get hyped and make billions of dollars yet audience and critics seem to hate them.

I remember James Cameron giving an extremely lengthy presentation on Avatar at the Electronic Entertainment Expo a few years ago.  I thought it sounded like crud.

Is this the hype you speak of?   BounceGiggle

I dunno, I guess I'm either immune to hype or I just ignore it entirely.

While audiences enjoy Transformers, I'm counting it for how the critics reacted. That is some over-hyped s**t.

Well, when I was at the movies over the weekend I saw the trailer for TITANIC 3-D, which is coming out in the spring.  I assume KING KONG, THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, and many, many others will follow shortly in 3-D.

I thought the following were pretty silly and/or boring as far as overhyped blockbusters go:

* DUNE
* INDEPENDENCE DAY
* 2012

I'd say at least three quarters of major studio releases are overhyped, or garbage, or both. But that might just be me.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
