31 Movie Days: 28

Day 28 - Most Over Hyped Movie

Dude, take your pick:
  • The Wizard of Oz
  • No Country for Old Men
  • Napoleon Dynamite
  • The Big Lebowski
  • Avatar
  • Adventureland
  • Twilight
  • Interview with a Vampire
  • The Godfather
I'm sorry to piss anyone off - I know some of these movies many bloggers I visit hold dear. But all those movies - I just don't understand the like. With BIG LEBOWSKI, perhaps I just wasn't the right audience member, but there was not one enjoyable moment in its entirety. NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN was a good movie, I agree, but did it warrant the hype and awards it got thrown with? Nope. TWILIGHT - self explanatory. ADVENTURELAND did nothing to show some acting chops in Kristen Stewart. None. THE GODFATHER, nothing compared to the far more enjoyable and briskly-paced sequel. INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE...I see ugly sets, ugly outfits, over-acting, and poor direction. NAPOLEON DYNAMITE I saw for free, and I still felt cheated and ripped off, and I can't understand the mega hype associated to this movie. Oh, and lest I forget: AVATAR. Pretty much way over-hyped. The dictionary definition of over-hyped.

NCFOM is AMAZING! One of my favorite movies ever. But I agree with you on Avatar.
