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

I don't think I could do a second viewing of THE CARD PLAYER...but I have watched worse - more than once

i dunno why but i just haven't seen a film of his i love, i'm not saying everything he's done is terrible at all, creepers which is the version i saw it as (1985) was a decent one but i haven't seen the Original version though.  Demons (1985) i rented that years ago and i thought while the makeup was great as was the gore the film was terrible but not as bad as it's sequel (1988) 

or am i thinking of the wrong guy? my apologies if i am

Argento did not direct DEMONS- he produced it.
Lamberto Bava did.

oh okay well could not remember and i didn't look it up so thank you.

i watched a really bad one the other nite called Wild Horses (2015) with Robert Duvall,  Josh Harnett and James Franco and Duvall not only wrote it and starred in it he directed it. & the film was utter s**t WOW was it bad, not one of Duvall's best performances and Harnett was decent but the one that really made it watchable was Franco now he was good in it.

do not watch this movie man it's easily one of their worst i think i gave it a 3/10

Godfather Part III (1990) might be considered an easy target, but even if Winona Ryder had stayed in the movie instead of Sofia Coppola having only 2 weeks to prep for that role as Ryder's replacement, the movie itself still would have been terrible; Sofia Coppola took the brunt of that movie's criticism in 1990 because she was clearly not fit to be given such a prominent role in that movie. It was just all around bad, the acting was just forced and ho-hum at times, the movie was about one hour too long, and I personally thought it was hilarious that Talia Shire was reduced to reprising her Adrian Balboa acting schtick to salvage something out of her role as Connie Corleone, because that was who she reminded me of. Francis Ford Coppola really batted a no-hitter with this one, which is regrettable because this was supposed to be the end to a fantastic trilogy, not leaving you with a bad taste in your mouth.

I took a chance back in January and bought The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone (2020). I'm not sure what all that Coppola did to "fix" his movie, but it is a much more watchable film than his original. He basically just moved a few sequences around; one that took place about a half hour into the film now starts it off, but a lot of the rest of the movie is the same as the original 1990 version. I still prefer the first two films to this one, but now this newer version of the 3rd movie is not as bad as it used to be.

Acclaimed director Jonathan Demme's The Truth About Charlie (2002) seems to be his biggest flop. Never seen it myself but the IMDb score is very low.

Is it October yet?

i haven't seen that one either myself i'm a fan of his too, i love Joe Dante but The Civil War ?i think it's called an HBO made for tv movie from (1997) i bought the VHS years ago and  at the time watched it with my mom and i thought it was terrible and so did she.

the movie is that forgettable i'm not even sure on it's title i mean if i even got it right. but that one has it's fans as i've seen people say online how it's a favorite of theirs go figure.
