Movies that disappointed me

Tenet ( 2020 )

two and a half hours of people running around and shooting for no reason whatsoever.

black guy saves the world by stopping evil russians. typical hollywood garbage.

A Quiet Place

a jump scare PG-13 “horror” movie for children

starring Emily Blunt and her husband who also directed this film

a bunch of sentimental family values BS movie that has no reason to exist

Inception ( 2010 )

same as “Tenet” … two and a half hours of running around and shooting for no reason whatsoever … from the same director but 10 years earlier.

complete waste.

Dune ( 2021 )

an OK movie for Children …

better than average big-budget Hollywood trash but largely in the same vein …

Mad Max Fury Road ( 2015 )

2 hours of running around and shooting for no reason

at least unlike Tenet and Inception it doesn’t try to be smart

that’s the only highlight of this movie - it is OPENLY retarded - it doesn’t try to be anything other than just pointless action

Inception was fun…you are being too hard on it.
Good visuals. Good action…and there were reasons for the shooting.

But you do have a point…Tenet flopped while Inception did well.
(In fact I waited till others saw Tenet because I had doubts…and based on what they said, I didn’t bother to go see it).
The formula didn’t work the second time.
He needs an actual script writer…his brother isn’t good enough.

Ultimately the problem with both Inception and Tenet is they are too long and in the last hour get too tedious / fatigueing.

and Tenet is worse because it is even more tedious, the cast is worse, and the special effects don’t count for anything anymore like they used to in the past.

Inception started out OK with great cast, interesting premise and only really got bad towards the end where they got carried away.

Also why are these movies so sexless ? I guess it’s a Nolan trademark.

Fucking Americans afraid of flashing a nipple for half a second in a movie where people have their heads blown off every 5 seconds for 2 hours …

Between Equilibrium and Inception i have gathered by now that you like action. That’s fine. I like when movies have a lot of sex. To me a good movie has an hour of sex in it and 5 minutes of action. That pretty much rules out all American movies except “Nymphomaniac” by Lars Von Trier, and even that one starred a French actress.

Nolan movies are pretty much the opposite of this though i still liked “Interstellar” … in fact Interstellar was so good that it leads me to believe that Nolan was simply not trying with movies like Tenet … he correctly figured that he’s getting paid to do a black hero movie and the standards for those types of movies are nonexistent …

i do understand that watching sex scenes in a movie theater can be a little uncomfortable … luckily nobody goes to the movies anymore - everybody watches at home now - so maybe the situation will improve. or maybe i will just continue watching foreign films.

Interstellar is good but had two flaws: two missteps from greatness.

  1. The happy ending.
    Cooper should have died/merged with the black hole, forever guiding humanity to its new home…whatever…he should be dead.
  2. The loop.
    Haven’t watched it in a while but the loop of the Tardis AI guiding them to the promised land but first Coop has to get there to the planet to set up Tardis…should have tied that up.

Nolan has a problem with attractive women, period.
In Batman, he replaces Tom Cruise’s wife at the time with Maggie Gyllenhall…
And his choice for Catwoman (who later stars in Interstellar) is at best ordinary looking.

My son watched a quiet place…said it broke its own rules on the need for quiet so I didn’t bother to see it.

A movie that disappointed by being too damn long is Blade runner 2049.
I think you wouldn’t miss 30 to 45 minutes being cut from it.

most people like happy endings. when my mother rates movies on movielens it’s basically just happy ending = good movie. sad ending = bad movie. and whenever they don’t explicitly show the hero dying even when it’s obvious he is dead my mother declares that he will survive.

so i guess the real problem with Nolan isn’t that the doesn’t know what he’s doing but rather that he knows EXACTLY what he’s doing.

well that’s because he is a big shot high up the food chain so he uses plain looking women

whenever you get to the top of the pyramid you are expected to give back to the system by taking a hit to push the agenda

Anne Hathaway looks Jewish that’s probably why he used her

the girl he used in “inception” actually ended up transitioning to a man later …

none of these are coincidences. i mean do you think black panther being black is a coincidence ?

they declared beauty to be a sin just like being white, straight or intelligent is a sin.

in “Tenet” the woman is 6’3" and protagonist is 5’9" … so they’re doing their part there to “fight stereotypes” …

again, this isn’t so much a sign Nolan doesn’t know what he’s doing but rather that he knows exactly what he’s doing …

of course he could just be gay … or it could be both

i still wonder why in Nolan movies there isn’t so much as kissing. are they conditioning us that all relationships should be platonic ? or is he trying to future proof his movies since nobody knows what will be considered appropriate in 5, 10, 20 years.

maybe 20 years from now the only appropriate kind of sex to show in movies will be when a woman pegs the man with a strapon.

Noo!!!
But seriously…will movies even be in cinemas then?
That should force them to use attractive women.
But ordinary looking women like Julia Roberts became a big star whereas Monica Belluci couldn’t break through (or wasn’t broken through).

Liberals hate everything that is good - beauty, intelligence, strength …

and love everything that is wrong - ugliness, degeneracy, sickness, disability …

they always promote weird looking women like Hathaway, Witherspoon, Roberts etc …

there is no place for beautiful women in Hollywood …

they can only find work in Latin America and France where women are still allowed to be beautiful …

even Julia Roberts would be in trouble today because she isn’t trans, black or fat …

Yet liberals have status and so people follow them.
If you have status, people will bend their hearts and follow - no matter how wrong you are. If you don’t have status, then…

Plus the liberals’ selling point is stellar: It is not your fault that you aren’t enough. Nor is it your genetics. It their fault! Them! Those successful ones right beside you!

It’s envy and tearing down others so you can stand atop the rubbish heap victorious.

well to be fair it isn’t about “liberals”

liberals are just tools, like feminists, nonwhites, immigrants, college students etc …

the elites are pulling all the strings and they aren’t “liberals” or even communists

they are transhumanist, globalist, international central banker Jews and other billionaires and pedophiles …

on body and soul ( 2017 )

3 stars

movielens predicted 4 stars for me. that’s a SERIOUS shortfall. for my account 4 stars means a strong movie while 3 stars means a weak one. this varies by user. for me 3.5 is about the average the way i rate movies but it may be different for you.

this movie isn’t terrible but it’s just WEAK

it reminds me of “under the skin” ( 2013 )

heh, i just realized they have very similar posters with the same font used for the title … i guess both directors suffered from the same kind of delusion of being great artists …

in both of these movies things that happen on the screen don’t really have any meaning or purpose for the most part other than pathetic attempts to make the movie artistic or profound …

there is one memorable scene in each of these two movies that can’t make up for hours of pointless nothingness …

3 stars because they tried and the girl is hot and there is one hot scene in which she is fully nude …

but they need to try harder next time …

maybe the reason i didn’t like it is because i couldn’t relate to the characters … the girl although high IQ Autist like me is completely sexless … and the guy is so fucking old that i don’t want to imagine myself being him …

there were many individual elements of the movie that were good but they were spread too thin with too much time wasted for no reason on shit that is irrelevant … same as in “under the skin”

this is what happens when the director thinks they are an artist …

movie isn’t bad as much as just really disappointing

i didn’t want to identify with the guy because he was too old and while i wanted to identify with the girl she didn’t want to identify with herself because she was totally fucked in the head …

all the girls i have dated were mentally ill but they were all nymphos as well and this bitch was the opposite of that and i’m not sure that’s what i wanted to see …

i dunno i just didn’t like the movie except for one scene where the girl is nude …

i like my art powerful, not artsy. only one scene in the entire film is powerful, just like only one sequence is in “under the skin” …

i’m also angry because the girl is memorable but the movie is not so now she’s stuck in my head but without any context … and because she is a Hungarian speaker there will probably never be any any movie worth watching with her in it so she will forever in my mind be associated with this clusterfuck …

regardless, i have avoided plot spoilers so you can still watch it if you want …

Buffalo '66 ( 1998 )

movielens predicted 4.5 stars for me

i’m actually giving it 2 stars

it just simply isn’t good

it was promising in the first half hour but then it just … disappoints

i don’t know why anybody thinks it’s good

i generally find old movies are usually over-rated

when “buffalo '66” ended i felt nothing …

i can’t recall a time when i felt less at the end of a movie - maybe “Stalker” ( 1979 )

actually these movies are somewhat similar … i was supposed to like both of them and i just didn’t …

at least “stalker” is bad from the start so hopefully some people won’t waste the time watching it to the end …

i actually finished Buffalo '66 which took me 2 days and i regret wasting the time …

i wish i could tell you what it is about but it isn’t about anything, just like stalker, it’s just a waste of time …

poorly made pseudo-profound garbage …

Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train ( 2020 )

probably the most disappointing movie watching experience in my life ? i was expecting a 4 star movie but i’m going to give it 2 stars.

oh well, it could have been worse - i was originally going to watch it with somebody else, but we ended up watching “source code” instead - so i saved myself the embarrassment there. that was literally the only thing i was thinking about when watching “demon slayer” - how if somebody watched it with me i would be embarrassed about picking such a lame movie for the rest of my life !

the real question for me thus isn’t how a movie can be this bad, but how did i end up watching it in the first place ?

it all started when i saw this Anime Music Video:

i thought it was cool and asked a simple question - what Anime was the imagery taken from ? and @marlon gave a simple answer “Demon Slayer” … which was technically a correct answer.

i googled it and saw that it was a TV series, but there is a Movie based on it … i decided to watch the movie ( or feature film if you want to be fancy ) as i don’t watch TV series …

that was probably mistake number 1 - not realizing that a movie based on a series would be bad - but it had good reviews and record box office in Japan …

mistake number 2 was assuming that there would be sexuality in the movie … it seemed like a good assumption ( assumptions are never good ) because the imagery in the music video was sexual, the lyrics from Dayum Dahlia are sexual and the movie was rated R - case closed, right ?

WRONG. there is no sexuality WHATSOEVER in the movie. less than even in Top Gun Maverick ! i mean literally NONE.

and that brings us to mistake number 3 …

i assumed that Tanjiro ( the protagonist ) is female:

but i was wrong. he is a 15 year old boy.

there are in fact NO females in this movie. they all LOOK like females but they are all actually male, which you can only discern from the dialogue because they are referred to as “brother” and so on … i mean since there is absolutely NO SEXUALITY in the movie you would never know either way what sex any of the characters are …

the ONLY females in the film are small children and the mothers of the characters …

as somebody who watches Hentai porn every day to watch an R rated Anime based on a clearly erotic music video made out of it only to discover there is no sexuality or even females in the Movie Adaptation …

you can imagine my disappointment.

and as you might expect from a Feature Film adaptation of a TV Series the plot is TRASH. the movie feverishly tries to develop the characters from the series by spelling everything out yet the characters are all 2-dimensional cardboard cutouts because it’s a children’s movie … which is rated R

and that’s the main problem. this is an R rated children’s movie. that was never going to work. if i only knew.

on the upside i got through the movie quickly - never had to pause to take time off as i often do with serious movies which actually have things to reflect on and process - but with “Demon Slayer” there was nothing to connect to at all. the protagonist is a boy who looks like a girl and loves his family - basically the opposite of me. i just couldn’t relate to his struggle on any level at all.

the only characters that didn’t feel like cardboard cutouts were the demons, and even those were ruined by talking too much. the entire movie is just everybody yapping and swinging swords.

i did like the animation style - i just wish instead of dumb children talking about how much they love their mommy and daddy the entire movie there would be some sex with demons or cool shit like that.

this movie is NOT COOL it is fucking LAME. it is no different than a Disney or Pixar cartoon. Despite nonstop fighting i think only one actual person dies in the entire movie - this is pure Top Gun Maverick type BULLSHIT.

but Top Gun Maverick is PG-13 … whereas “Demon Slayer” is R …

what an absolute let down …

and i’m tired of retard Japanese Animators that make men look like women … this isn’t the first time, though it is the worst instance so far !

i don’t care if Tanjiro is 15, unless he is going to suck my dick he shouldn’t look like a female !

stupid Japs … i suppose you can’t blame them since they don’t have any real men in their country …

i am so pissed i decided that i won’t stop at giving it a low rating on MovieLens - i will actually go through other bullshit movies like Top Gun Maverick and lower their ratings too because i never want to see trash like this again !

i periodically go through my ratings at MovieLens and lower them because usually right after watching a movie you are excited and can give a higher rating than what is objectively warranted - but if a few months later you barely remember the movie and it means nothing then it means it wasn’t that good …

I didn’t know you intended to watch it…!

I haven’t seen it, no intention to see it, and would never recommend such films to anyone who isn’t a hardcore anime fan!

neither did i !

but MovieLens predicted 3.67 stars for me and IMDB had 8.2 out of 10 ratings and more importantly it was the highest grossing film of 2020 worldwide, as well as the highest grossing film OF ALL TIME in Japan.

it just seemed like the stars aligned for this movie - everything seemed to indicate that i should watch it - the ratings, the box office, the fact that it was used in that music video, the fact that you recognized it …

maybe it’s not that bad it’s just not for me - it’s all fighting and crying about one’s dead parents and so on - basically it’s all things i could give a rat’s ass about …

it’s a movie for sentimental children fantasizing about having superior skills as well as basically a pissing contest between the characters for who is morally superior to whom and who has the purest subconsciousness and “moral core” … it was cringe and made worse by the fact that everything was spelled out Top Gun Maverick style.

as both movies ( Maverick and Mugen ) were colossal box office hits apparently this is their new formula for making money … cardboard cutout characters and spelling everything out and repeating it over and over with virtually no sexuality and virtually nobody dying, but pretty looking effects / graphics …

you might enjoy it i don’t know … there is some similarity to Top Gun Maverick … but it’s really aimed at children, whereas Top Gun Maverick is aimed at basically all generations … we can identify with Tom Cruise but there isn’t anybody like that in “Mugen Train” …

the OLDEST character in the movie “Rengoku” is 20 years old … he is the teacher to the 15 year old Tanjiro …

the “action” is decent i suppose but it’s mostly in the realm of fantasy …
