Have you ever watched a movie that was directed by someone you love and then felt really let down?

Well, if I have, I don't remember. So share yours instead.

The only rule is no M. Night Shyamalan movies. I don't think he qualifies as a "good" director anymore.

The IRISHMAN by Scorsese.
Bloated remix of all his other (better) gangster movies. And even with cgi, DeNiro still is waaay to old for the part. And all the other usual suspects called in their performances.
Waaay to long as well.

Ghosts of Mars by John Carpenter. Several of the actors (Ice Cube most glaring) just don't seem to fit into their roles resulting in a very clunky movie.

Not a bad movie, but Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon could have been much better with some tweaks. Most notably not casting Ryan O’Neal in the lead. For context this was only a few years removed from A Clockwork Orange, which in my opinion is Kubrick’s best film. Malcolm McDowell wanted to work with Kubrick again and would have been perfect in that role.

How you choose Ryan O’Neal over Malcolm McDowell is beyond me.

And it’s not like those were Kubrick’s only two options. Even if Kubrick didn’t want to cast McDowell for whatever reason he had no shortage of great leading men to choose from in the mid 1970s.

Hitch's Rear Window (1954) is loved by many and is considered one of his best but it's not that i think it's awful i just find it meh it just doesn't do anything for me.

other films by him '(1934)'s first of  The man who knew too much i  find it awful, (1930)'s Murder it's terrible.

Cohen Bros. No country for old men (2007) i'm prolly the only one on this entire site that thought that film was utterly garbage and i can live with that

Well, there is two of us at least. I didn't think it was garbage, but found it profoundly boring.

i can live with that, see i never read the book, when i went and saw it i thought the film was going to be about those drug dealers and that ugly mofo was going to be part of it, that would have made it a far better film had it been like that to be honest. but yes i was bored out of my mind and at some point no joke i said to myself uh where's Josh Brolin? why isn't he at the end of the film? well so i came home and looked it up on the IMDB boards which were still around back than.

man do i miss those and i had to have someone tell me he was killed well it was shot where you do not see him at all get killed.  so i went uh oh kay.....

than i told my mom not to rent it when it comes out, she ignored me and it took her no joke 2 days to watch it my dad fell asleep on it but he can fall asleep on anything pretty much. but he did say it was boring as well my mom ended up having to pay a late fee!  than a friend of her's rented it and regretted it as well after she was told it was awful she regretted it as well.

ya know the last one i saw of theirs was that Hollywood one from a few years back i forget the title of it and honestly that wasn't that bad of a film it wasn't great by any means but it was a film i was glad i watched.  i'll never watch it again though and if i recall that one actually flopped when it came out which goes to show not every film of theirs is a hit.

but many people seem to love it and when it won best picture of the year i went WTF?

Ugh..  John Huston has done so many good flicks-- Maltese Falcon, Man Who Would Be King, African Queen, Asphalt Jungle, Prizzi's Honor, etc.  And he also crapped out PHOBIA (1980).  Really bad horror flick about a psychatrist's patients who are murdered in ways tied to their phobias.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. A movie that fails to capture any of the fun of the other entries in the series. Features way too many predictable moments rehashed from the earlier (and superior) prequels. Plenty of big-name actors wasting their time on screen.

Dario Argento... there's a lot of places I could go here, but THE CARD PLAYER is really bad. really hard to take on 1st viewing, on 2nd viewing I quite enjoyed its badness


Burn After Reading by  Joel and Ethan Coen
this one seems quite divisive... it's probably my 2nd or 3rd fav Coen bros movie. a magnificent farce/shaggy dog story. I can kind of see why some might hate it though

I actually made a thread once about NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN because I think it's a terrible movie, not sure what happened to that particular discussion tho.
I recently watched REAR WINDOW and I thought it was ok, yet I couldn't stand VERTIGO too much.
