I find it's pretty good form to actually, y'know, watch something before trashing it completely.



Oh, Harry, you and your logical thoughts. Tsk.

On the subject of The Expendables 2: Men Men Men Manly Men Men Men, it might actually turn out to be a good film.

The first film was brutally dull, though.

I don't think he was trolling, although I do wonder how he can dismiss Django Unchained, DKR and Spider-Man Rebooted without giving them the benefit of the doubt.

But I suppose his post is in keeping with the ridiculous idea this thread is predicated upon.

Last year I wasn't all that fussed about seeing Captain America, but was talked into it by a couple of friends, and ended up enjoying it. Not the first time that's happened.
However, based on the fact that I disliked the two previous ones, I won't be bothering with The Dark Knight Rises.
Overall, I prefer to think about the films that I'm really looking forward to seeing this year (and if I end up being disappointed with some, then so be it), rather than making snap judgements about something beforehand.

People willing on films to "suck" shouldn't be allowed in a cinema....or to have any friends.

That said; Jack & Jill does indeed look like a monstrosity.

With a 3% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I'd say that's a given.




threshold -> RE: What's going to suck in 2012?! (15/1/2012 5:35:40 AM)

Except for The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus and The Hobbit, any movie has the true capacity to suck.
But a definite one?
John Carter.
Who genuinely wants to see that movie?




DARKO_DONNIE_DONUT -> RE: What's going to suck in 2012?! (15/1/2012 9:47:54 AM)

It would be somewhat amusing if the Dark Knight Rise's turned out to be a shocker of a film.
Only on the basis that the Christopher Nolan fanboys do my freaken head-in.[:@]

I do, sure it will probably be standard effects driven blockbuster fare but I like the books so curious. doubt it will suck anywhere near as much as POTC 4 did.
I'm fairly optimistic about the avengers, and expendables 2 but i guess it is down to expectation, from expandables 2 i want to see mindless violence, it'll be pretty hard for them to fuck that up. i saw the trailers for darkest hour, knew it would suck and wanted to see it, just like skyline. which btw I enjoyed in a trashy crap movie kind of way.

Transformers four maybe? sorry, battleship.

Wrath of titans can't be as bad as the first surely.

Thay gave it a pretty good stab in the first one.

I liked it, but then I'm not the most demanding viewer ever.

Even though I would consider myself to be a Nolan fanboy I do know what you mean.

I have the exact same feelings for David Fincher - and I actually like his work!

Oh & Tarrantino, with the key difference being I don't like his - bar his first three (not including the utter rank Four Rooms).

Still surprised Fincher chose to be the director who would remake The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.[&:]

No matter how good a film is, it's always going to be hated because it won't live up to incredibly high expectations that have no basis in any sort of reality (see some of the comments in TDKR thread).

I feel bad for movies these days… they have my sympathy.


Agreed.

This thread may as well be called "What are you looking forward to hating in 2012".

There are quite a few films coming out that I don't like the look of but that's because I'm not the intended audience. I find it's pretty good form to actually, y'know, watch something before trashing it completely.


What?! You mean you don't make up your mind beforehand and judge a film until you've seen it?

You sir, are out of your tree.

I remember when people would actually look forward to films, and want them to succeed and generally not be miserable bastards.

This is just another thread for people to air their generally ill-formed and depressing opinions. As DancingClown said, are we really stooping so low that we're now predicting what not to like in order to pre-emptively bitch about it? Really?






Spaldron -> RE: What's going to suck in 2012?! (17/1/2012 12:34:45 PM)

I predict this thread will suck in 2012.




UTB -> RE: What's going to suck in 2012?! (19/1/2012 12:47:01 PM)

Will?




Spaldron -> RE: What's going to suck in 2012?! (19/1/2012 1:13:24 PM)

Chuck Norris is going to suck in 2012.




UTB -> RE: What's going to suck in 2012?! (19/1/2012 1:14:40 PM)

Don't you mean 2012 will suck Chuck Norris?







DARKO_DONNIE_DONUT -> RE: What's going to suck in 2012?! (19/1/2012 2:44:35 PM)

Hard to tell without seeing it, nay?

Why is it pointless? The Verhoven version bared little actual resemblence to Dick's original story. If anything this new adaptation is supposed to be sticking closer to the source material.

Avengers (to many characters?)


Isn't The Avengers about a group of superheroes? Surely the movie's quality will depend on many things as opposed to simply how many characters there are.

quote:

Kill Bin Laden (but he's already dead?)


Yes, he is dead. I fail to see how that should deter a good film being made about him though. I believe this one's about the events leading up to his assassination, yes? Knowing the outcome doesn't mean it has to 'suck'.


Why am I posting in this thread again...?

I was clearly just stating what I think the general consensous is with regards to these films.
I'm basically saying "this could suck or it could not"
I havent made any assumption that it will be one way or the other.

With regards to the films you have highlighted in my little list.
Abraham Lincold Vampire Hunter.The films intentions are already set havent they?
It not exactly going to be a serious film.It will most likely be a silly,comic take on a very important real-life character.
How its going to be pulled off could swing one way or the other ie silly fun or silly rubbish.

Total Recal.
Sorry I didnt know the history of said film  fictional book past.
I was merely judging it on the classic Arnie film which I believe was a good sci-fi,gory action movie and I'm indifferent on rether it should be remade.

Avengers
I think you and every knows that throwing more characters into a film,especially one where every character in it is there own leader is hard to pull off.The X-men films were very up-and-down,with the Last Stand being a mess of a film due to many ideas and characters.
Iron man 2 also had an element of how not to incorperate more characters.
This is the major problem,but it could swing one way or the other.
I just dont want to see characters such as Hulk be filler in a movie while not having much of a bearing on the overal scenes/story.
Its definetly one film where the director and screen writers need to get the most out of each character for the film to be worthy to its fanbase


Kill Bin Laden

Could be a great movie.Catherine Bigalow has good history with regards to Political Films ie such as Hurt Locker,K-19.
My only problem with this production is the fact that, will it be a 'America vs Bin Laden'story,which was shown here there and everywhere once the news broke of Mr Ladens death.Is this film going to come across as a very pro-american film?
And how would that respond in other area's of the world?

Again these films could go either way.All have the talent.
Maybe the article should be :What MIGHT suck.




REALLYMAD -> RE: What's going to suck in 2012?! (20/1/2012 3:33:19 PM)

This fucking message board, if the misery-loves-company clique have anything to do with it.
Jesus Christ, does anyone remember when films actually used to be fun?

What is it about these places that make even the most placid neutral fall victim to the soul-sucking practices of the clinically depressed near-suicidal deconstructionites in here? You really don't want to turn into one of those, it's one step closer to fully-fledged pretentious movie snobbery.

For a change why not try to watch something without pre-judging it? Sure, I don't doubt there will be more than enough opportunity for the despair-addicted to come back and say "told you so" but it's worth it to experience those infrequent pleasant little surprises of watching a hidden gem.

Mind you, the Sandler thing really does look like a bag of arse.

You gonna give Herzog's next film a go then?[;)]
