It takes a lot for me to think badly of a movie, and that movie was just dumb. I couldnt even watch the whole thing because it was so dumb. I thought I could handle those fake and cartoonish animals and submarine; and i tried to find it funny, because i wanted to prove to my family that I didnt rent a dud, but that movie, no, no, no. It reminded me of The Royal Tenebaums: that movie was a tad better. im sorry, I just thought that movie was awful.

The recent remake of Poseidon was pretty disappointing. It had some nice actors, but bad acting...and some very cliche moments. They just happened to find all the openings and pathways to the propellers, and were able to clear them of obstacles. Then the rescue team spots them immediately after they get out of the ship in time to see it sink.

Yes, it was an overall bad movie, and it will probably remain like that even if I try rewatching it in the future.

You have a point there...maybe it can be useful to post it to give other people a heads-up about a crappy movie, so then they can save their time lol, or at least be warned

Didn't mean to rain on anyone's parade, Have fun!

Typically I donít go to a flick until Itís been out for a while and itís recommended, I save a lot of money that way so I can buy more CDís.

I wonder if there's a crappy movie with a parade scene. The one example of a movie with a parade scene is from the Godfather trilogy, probably the second one. But that was definitely not a crappy, or even average, movie.

Oh my gawd... I absolutely hated V for Vendetta (yes, I read and liked Alan Moore's original comics - he didn't want to be mentioned in the credits of this abomination of a movie - for a very good reason, as I believe).

This sums it up for me quite well, from IMDb:
Quote:
Wow! As a lot of the comments I am seeing for this movie are very positive, I am just wondering if I have seen the same version, or cut, of the movie as everyone else seemingly has. I cannot see how this was enjoyed, as a whole, by anyone. Yes, there may have been certain scenes which certain people may have enjoyed but overall, there's little to be impressed with. The exploding buildings were fine but very reminiscent of Independence Day in that some of them just weren't real enough. The script was, well, poor (the alliterative sequence aside - alas, this too was overdone). The characters were bare types and I don't think anyone had to use much of their acting powers in orders to portray them. John Hurt barking out from a screen being a prime example. V's and Evey's relationship, such as it appeared to blossom from nowhere ("Oh you've tortured me and kept me as a prisoner, let me kiss you!), was unconvincing. The story didn't have much content either and the movie ran far too long. You found yourself waiting to see what the point of it all was and in the end discovered that there was little point at all. The only value that the movie has for me is that, perhaps, it is an attempt to bring to mainstream America the ideas and concepts of fear that have been used by US government to oppress the people of the US, to start and continue wars, to remove and ignore human rights, to add new "big-brother" style laws and to make the rich and powerful richer and yet more powerful, as Mr. Noam Chomsky's been saying for years. I know not of the comic from which this hails but I would say that unless you're a fan of same, do not bother going!
Quote:
V for Vendetta is quite literally one of the very worst films I have ever been subjected to! It has to be in my bottom 10 movies of all time. This is not an idle statement, nor is it a rash decision biased by the fact that I have just been robbed of two hours of my life. I am not the kind of person to give a film 1 out of 10 simply because I do not like it (I gave Crash a 3), but this film should be flattered that I have given it that 1.

Why, you ask? In the documentary Hearts of Darkness (which is about the making of Apocalypse Now, for those who don't know), Francis Coppola says that, if you try to make a profound film and fail, you end up with the very worst kind of aesthetic crime. Case in point.

The story is fine as a concept, but so badly set out that it's more like a spoof than a serious socio-political message movie. The characters are all - note ALL - entirely one-dimensional caricatures. The worst of these is V, whose dialogue sounds like it was written by a GCSE drama student (high school drama student to our friends across the pond). The glib references to Shakespeare were an insult to both him and the millions of lovers of his work.

Natalie Portman, who cannot act her way out of a paper bag unless she is given 100% of her character in the script (as she was in Closer and Garden State - the only two movies in which she doesn't suck) suffers all the more for the fact that her English accent is awful. It's laughable to think that her character, Evie, is meant to have grown up more or less on the streets, yet she sounds like she's impersonating a BBC newscaster from the 1950s. Is this the way Americans think all Brits speak?!? Beyond this, the character was dreadfully written, leaving the audience feeling totally ambivalent toward her.

V was a complete waste of time too, as it is impossible to empathise with someone through a mask. Is this supposed to be an allusion to Greek theatre, or is it just an ill conceived visual choice? Did it not occur to anyone that people would switch off after a couple of minutes looking at that stupid grin?

The 'relationship' between Evie and V was so insultingly non-existent that they might as well have not even been in the same film. And the dialogue between them?

"Will you dance with me?"

"I remember the man..."

"He was my father, my mother, my brother.." My arse!

PATHETIC!!!! The whole film was so utterly contrived that even its (limited) entertainment value was shat away in an orgy of unnecessary special effects and totally generic action sequences.

And let's talk about visual clichťs; the mask siting in front of the broken mirror, the shot of Portman raising her arms to the sky in the rain, the hundreds of masked civilians gathering in Parliament Square, the pseudo film-noir lighting in the interrogation scenes... Need I go on?

Speaking of the prison sequences, were we really supposed to believe that a) he would have done that to her? b) she would forgive him and still fall for him? c)she'd be more concerned with her hair than with having been tortured and privated? Ludicrous! Is this what passes for character/relationship study in modern cinema?

P*ss poor on every conceivable level, and made infinitely worse by the fact that it takes itself so damn seriously. It fails here most of all, coming off as nothing more than utterly pretentious. Furthermore, this film does nothing but commodify the very serious issues it is supposed to be addressing.

There is not one redeeming thing about this over-produced mess - not one - hence Alan Moore removing his name from it.

I am embarrassed for everyone that likes this film.
Couldn't have said it better myself. People that like V for Vendetta probably haven't seen Brazil, or read 1984... or read Alan Moore's comic, which got butchered for this Hollywood tripe of the lowest kind.
