There have always been movies that gave big hopes to the audience. Such films are called blockbusters, sequels and prequels, movies-of-a-great-cast, and so on and so forth. Waiting for them, people really hope to receive a good and worth-to-watch product, but it often happens that they leave cinemas disappointed. Why does it happen so? What are the mistakes of producers or directors here? A good assignment helper would be able to answer such a question of course, but this fact doesn’t make the movies, described below, better.
Public Enemies (2009)
The story of a well-known criminal John Dillinger promised to be really exciting on a big screen, especially when it was played by such a guru of acting as Johnny Depp. The name of Christian Bale is also not the last one in Hollywood, so, ‘Public Enemies’ should have been nothing less than a really thrilling movie for those who appreciate a cinematography of a high quality.
But something went totally wrong. In general, this is not a very bad movie, but we couldn’t see any connection between all it parts. It looked like a number of separate scenes where Depp tried to demonstrate his acting talent, Bale did the same, and they were not able to create a really good tandem to make this movie really worth watching.
Sex And The City 2 (2010)
All fans of this show remember the first part of ‘Sex And the City’ which didn’t win any awards, but demonstrated a thrilling plot and good sense of humor of all four antagonists. So, it’s clear that they expected to get the same at least, when it came to the sequel.
Certainly, such a movie is not for everyone but fans only, but even they were disappointed to see such a flat humor towards Dubai, its traditions, and different gender stereotypes. Glamour of Samantha and her friends was too much to stand, the story itself appeared to be about nothing… Well, there is no need to continue probably. We hope we won’t see ‘Sex And the City 3′ ever.
The Day After Tomorrow (2004)
This movie is the great example of the fact we should never believe all those bright and promising marketing campaigns of disaster films. All those landmarks destroyed by a catastrophe were able to capture people’s attention, and they hope to meet the same caliber of disaster in the movies. No luck anyway.
Well, we must admit, that the scenes of disaster were quite impressive, but they were not able to save the whole plot as a result. The audience was bored to watch a protagonist’s pathetic attempts to find his son. There was really nothing else to watch in the movie.
Alice In Wonderland (2010)
Wasn’t Tim Burton the perfect director for such a story? His talent, together with Lewis Carrol’s odd imagination, promised us a real masterpiece with beautiful pictures, impressive visual effects, non-ordinary jokes, cool Cheshire Cat, Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter, and much more.
The movie appeared to be just a kaleidoscope of simple scenes with Carroll’s imaginative creatures who talked about nothing and served like decorations to make 3D effects better.
A giant lizard in Manhattan, and Roland Emmerich as a director (we all remember his epic ‘Independence Day’, don’t we?) – what could be a better tandem for this movie to become a real masterpiece of its genre?
The audience got an impression of watching ‘Jurassic Park’ again, and Godzilla didn’t look as cool as it was planned. Jokes were not funny, acting – not cool… Well, a total fail, as we see.
The name of Ridley Scott and The ‘Alien’ franchise return promised to make ‘Prometheus’ one of the biggest sci-fi movie projects of that summer.
Certainly, it’s possible to meet people who liked this movie very much. But you are not one of them if you couldn’t stand the stupidity of crew-members, unclear mythological moments of the plot, and a totally absurd final that made us be afraid of the possible sequel of this such-called prequel appearance.
The Godfather 3 (1990)
Well, it’s obvious that people were excited to watch this movie, because its first two parts had been called the greatest masterpieces of cinematography ever made. But…
It was not the worst movie ever, but it had almost nothing in common with two previous parts: relations were poor, leading roles were wrong, and all these moments made an impression of watching something totally boring and unnecessary.
