After watching several movies that were recommended to me and not liking any of them, it got me thinking ( a rare occurance ). Why are so many movies overrated. They mislead me the consumer, get me to the theater. I watch the movie and i hate it. I watched the Simpsons movie. If you were expecting the lazy fat ass drunken moron depicted in about every single episode of the show you left the theater dissapointed. Why cant moies just be funny. Like the Show Robot Chicken. It really has no plot just a lot of funny stuff. Does anybody agree with me. Im going to see Superbad and have high hopes for this film. Did anybody see Superbad and like it. Your opinions will be greatly appreciated.
THanks,
Garrett

You're bashing people for giving bad opinions on movies in general while at the same time asking people for their opinions on certain movies, maybe you should think less.

Have actually walked out of one film, The Producers. Half the cinema had already walked out when we did, the film was so rubbish.

One film me and a friend left, we were drying our tears as we had been laughing SO hard. Have never left a film like that. It was the Aristocrats i think, all about the joke (type it in plus south park in youtube and you will see the joke)

I saw it and wasn't really impressed -- I thought it was generally too long the pacing was painful throughout most of the film, though there were a few good laughs burried in there.

But hey, even the Wall Street Journal dude liked it so maybe It's just me (In fairness I was on the tail end of a cold and depresed about spending $250,000 at the time)

Far too many movies in recent years are made to aim at a generally young audience, from 13-21 in age. In the USA, they can't go to bars or clubs, and movies become a place to go to date and not so much be really entertained. That means too many movies made to a formula to attract that base audience, especially on the critical first weekend before the critics kick in. Add to that too many sequels, a fear to do anything that might be bold or original, excessive use of foul words frequently or rarely showing mature depictions of sex and life. Far too much of the humor in movies today is clumsy and foul and not appealing to many, even in the 13-21 age group.

That's why Reno: 911 was so great. Big grin



"About the only way to look at it, just a pity you are not POTUS KFLLCFII, seems as if we would all be better off."
