Pretty horrible movie, I had high expectations considering the IMDB rating, I think this is the first time the IMDB rating has failed me. The way people hyped it I thought there would be some really good plot or twists or something new, but it was just mindless guts and blood with horrible acting and tbh a pathetic storyline.
FLUNKER, waste of an hour and a half.
I agree with your sentiments even though I think I'd give it higher than a 0.5 rating.
I didn't go in with any real expectations, didn't really look up reviews, ratings, etc, just needed to kill some time at the movies, so I randomly chose that one. I appreciate that it was a new twist on the slasher pic, a somewhat clever parody of the genre but it just seemed... stupid to me. I know it was meant to be a tongue-in-cheek comedy as much as a horror flick, but still, just didn't work for me.
All the actors were terrible besides the main girl who was OK and likeable, the idea of this lab with everyday people working there who -- SPOILERS-- watch people die and get sacrificed for some ancient demonic force --SPOILERS-- is just retarded. Worst movie I've seen since hobo with a shotgun.
It was so bad I skipped thru the end of it I made it to the part SPOILERS the mermaid monster killed that lab manager guy, honestly what the fck.
The Avengers - 9/10
Loved this one. Felt bad about Norton not being in it, but at the end Ruffalo really did a great job. Feels like whole team has amazing chemistry.
The Dark Knight Rises - 10/10
Just got home from this one and absolutely loved it! It's maybe 10 because I'm still under impression, but it ain't lower than 9.5
What an amazing job Nolan did with this trilogy, damn, I want more...
Hunger games 6/10... I had high expectations for the movie since it got good reviews. The concept of the movie was done before, to perfection i must say, it was called battle royale. So the idea of people being coerced to kill each other in an island to made an example of is not a mind blowing thing. I realize that this was based on a book and it must follow the plot to make the sequels but still for me it lacked energy, gore and excitement.. Hey maybe the book is good..
I can't get past how cheap it looks. It looks like a straight to DVD or a Sci FY movie, this doesn't look like a blockbuster film at all.
Then there's the acting….. really? this makes Gi Joe appear award worthy.
So far even the FX look like they're on a budget.
I may revisit this on a later date, but this shit is bad and obviously for me, unwatchable.
there's no real weak link in the acting. in fact, hiddleston as 'loki' is the best cast villain i've seen in a long time. i was impressed with his performance in thor but i left even more impressed after avengers. he legitimately makes you hate his character which is exactly what a villain should elicit.
maybe i'm missing something but bringing up gi joe makes me think you're trolling. some of the acting in that movie was so out of place, it was cringe worthy.
the FX were not michael bay over the top. i personally hate when they take it too far and things 'obviously' look fake. that's why i always prefer movies where it's all real stunts. it just allows you to get into the movie more.
like almost all movies, it has its flaws, but i found them to be very minor in general. acting and CGI were definitely not one of the flaws. the movie does so many things well.

Hope Springs - 6/10. Well, it was date night with the gf and she's been wanting to see this really bad. The most impressive part of the film was that everything was very real and believable, no hollywood fluff or glamorization. The acting by Streep, Lee Jones, and Carrell was rather enjoyable as well. Carrell played a very serious and straight character as opposed to his comedic ways. Lee Jones was hilarious as an old grumpy man, but still had depth and emotion in his character. Would have been a higher rating if it wasn't a chick flick. Most of the people in the theater were old people, rather cute
