A negative thread I know, but looking at the latest Empire's 2012 line-up I can't help but go 'that's gonna suck, that's gonna suck...'

I think Hunger Games will suck, Wraith Of The Titans will suck and (to no-ones surprise!) Battleship will suck!

So what do you think will suck, or at least be a total disappointment, in 2012!

After seeing Captain America I have some faith that it'll be at the least a fun film.

Are we really stooping so low that we're now predicting what not to like in order to pre-emptively bitch about it? Really?

How will you know what will suck until you've seen it?

But The Avengers is written and directed by Joss Whedon, right?

Now I'd be hard pressed to call myself a fan of his work, but the guy is hardly a slouch.

Now that you mention him, I saw a poster for a film of his in which he plays twins, one of them a woman.
So I tend to agree with that prediction.

It's called Jack and Jill and it kind of flopped in the US. Plus, it's a fantasy film as healthy identical twins can't be male and female

Woohoo 2012 - the year with tons of films that lots of people on the internet will say are ‘over-rated’.

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.

Well I don't know, I don't read comics and I don't read Empire either.

Unless they do what they should have done in the first film which is end up in a massive muscly oiled up orgy wanking each others' cocks off into their botox and steroid filled has-been faces whilst watching Arnie's muscle pumping workout video.



Oh wait, is this not the trolling thread?

Im not sure spiderman will live up to anything special. It will do decent box office but im not holding much hopes up for it.

I'd pay to see that, though I reckon it'd take a hell of a lot longer than 2 hours - apart from The Stath I doubt there's a member of the cast with even half a stiffy in him.

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.
