I'm not sure this was the worst film I've ever seen (that honour goes to In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale
), but DH and I tried to watch There Will Be Blood
last weekend. We sat through two hours and then just gave up and turned it off. It didn't help that every time I saw a close-up of Daniel Day-Lewis, he reminded me of Inigo Montoya.
This was supposed to be a really good film and it got lots of awards, but why?
I liked some of the films that some PPs didn't - Pulp Fiction
, Star Trek
(2009) etc., but I agree with Diane about The Dark Knight
. I went to see that film expecting a really good performance from Heath Ledger, but honestly I felt he fluffed it, which was quite sad.
And I saw Les Mis
in the theatre on my 18th birthday and loved it with a passion. Saw it a few weeks ago, aged 39, with DH and it left me completely cold. Either it didn't translate well into film or (more likely) I am now too jaded and cynical to enjoy it.
