#5 WORST MOVIE OF 2011

Post by Philosophe rouge » Tue Jan 31, 2012 11:28 pm

Image

SOMETIMES EXPECTATIONS CAN GET IN THE WAY OF ENJOYING FILM. IT IS REALLY BEST TO GO INTO ANY FILM WITH ALL EXPECTATIONS COMPLETELY SHUT OFF, TO ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE FOR WHAT IT WAS. I THINK THAT'S WHERE I WENT WRONG WITH THIS ONE, I WANTED A PSYCHEDELIC CHILDREN'S MOVIE WITH A BOUNCING HEATHER GRAHAM. INSTEAD I GOT NOTHING! A SHAME BECAUSE THINGS WERE GOING SO WELL EARLY ON WHEN STEVE URKEL SHOWED UP, BUT THEN THEY LITERALLY SPENT THE REST OF THE MOVIE LOOKING FOR HIM. YOU GET THE URK AND YOU PUSH HIM TO THE SIDELINES?! WTF FILMMAKERS, REWRITE THAT SCRIPT OR HAVE STEVE PLAY THE WEIRD BLONDE KID.

The 5th Worst Film of 2011

Image
By virtue of not sharing Justine's appetite for shit, I tend to end up with films on my worst list that I didn't actually mind that much. The Future is such a film, in that my biggest complaint with it is that a movie narrated by a talking cat shouldn't be so fucking boring. There are brief glimpses at the warm longing for human connection that made Me and You and Everyone We Know relatively memorable (the telephone scene in particular) and a bit of half-baked surrealness towards the end that is mildly engaging, but on the whole it doesn't feel like her ideas are realized well enough to hold the audiences attention over the course of the film.

#4 WORST MOVIE OF THE YEAR

I WATCHED THIS BECAUSE I THOUGHT THERE SOME SOME PROMISE IN THE FIRST TWILIGHT MOVIE. I LIKED ALL THE MONOCHROMATIC COLOURS AND OVER-EXAGGERATED TEENAGE ANGST. I LIKE A LOT OF THE CAST BUT GOD, THIS WAS BOREZVILLE. THE MOVIE SHOULD HAVE BEEN BIGGER, WEIRDER AND BETTER. BUT IT WASN'T. DAMN YOU HARDWYCK!

The 4th Worst Film of 2011

Image
Given this film's pedigree there's no way it should be as bad as it is. A Simon Pegg script, Greg Mottola behind the camera, starring Pegg & Nick Frost, appearances from Kristen Wiig and Jason Bateman, Armond White's approval... wait, scratch that last one. It feels like Pegg is going for the same parody-but-also-not style he and Edgar Wright perfected with Shaun of the Dead, but it falls completely flat here. I think a lot of the blame lays at Greg Mottola's feet, who seems more at home doing character based comedy and doesn't have the keen wit and visual timing Wright possesses, but so many of the jokes in the film are just poorly written. Not to mention Kristen Wiig's character functioning as nothing more than a religious punching bag. It's easy to imagine this being a much better film, but it's a case where the whole is significantly less than the sum of its parts.

I'm pretty sure I'll end up watching Red Riding Hood at some point considering I now have HBO and they play it all the time. I still have some sort of weird desire to see it.

ONE OF THE MOST BAFFLING EXPERIENCES EVER, I WALKED OUT OF THIS MOVIE EXPECTING EVERYONE TO HATE IT... BUT THEY DIDN'T? I SEEMED THE FOOL BUT SERIOUSLY, THIS MOVIE IS BEYOND BAD. IT HAS ONE GREAT SCENE WHERE THEY DROP SOME VAMPIRES FROM A HELICOPETER BUT EVERYTHING ELSE WAS JUST THE WRONG TONE, DID NOT HIT IT'S MARK AT ALL. DID NOT LIKE THE CREATURE DESIGN OR THE SELF-SERIOUS NARRATIVE.

Everything around me is evaporating. My whole life, my memories, my imagination and its contents, my personality - it's all evaporating. I continuously feel that I was someone else, that I felt something else, that I thought something else. What I'm attending here is a show with another set. And the show I'm attending is myself.

That's why that one good scene is so good. The rest is shit.
