I’ll review anything in countdown form. Seriously, it makes things so much easier, rather than trying to filter through the myriad of film information in my brain. That’s what happens when you have no friends growing up and you spend every minute at home reading Entertainment Weekly and Premiere, watching every movie you can find, and reading at least 25-50 pages of a film encyclopedia every night before going to bed. Of course all of that made film school easier but as you can see from my current unemployment status, that’s only come in handy at bad trivia and writing this blog but I digress…
It’s because of my love for any type of countdown or categorical collection that I post this link to Total Film’s “50 Most Disappointing Movies of All Time”.
I have to say that I pretty much agree with every film on this list. I might personally shuffle the order (I definitely think #2 should be #1 but decide for yourself) but I definitely think every film deserves its placement here.
Looking for those special words to convey how much you mean business? That your ass-kicking threats are real? Look no further. Just watch this mixup of the top 100 movie threat moments of all time courtesy of Harry Hanrahan.
By the way, am I the only person who was disappointed not to see this scene from ‘The Princess Bride’?
Based on the trailer, this film evokes so many cinematic associations…’Black Swan’, ‘Single White Female’, ‘Disclosure’, the upcoming ’50 Shades of Grey’ to name a few but what I’d be most curious to hear are the responses to this trailer from lesbians, straight women, and straight men. Either way its Rachel McAdams/Regina George (“corporate take-over”) vs. Noomi Rapace/Lisbeth Salander (“I’m goth on the inside now”), and I admit I’m stumped on who the odds favor more here. Never underestimate a Mean Girl attempting to “out-do” Demi Moore’s character from ‘Disclosure’ and never underestimate an abused hacker who’s learned how to speak English and put on a suit…especially when both have developed a new interest in BDSM and role-playing!
