Movies that generated so much hype that didn't live up to your expectations?


1. Zero Dark Thirty - I felt like I was watching a straight to DVD B- Movie
2. Lincoln - it was boring....and long....Spielberg's past his prime I think...
3. Argo - Waaay too much praise and accolades for Affleck as a director, waay too much...IMO any crafty Director like Brian Singer, Ron Howard or even fellow actor/director like Kenneth Branagh would've 'easily' topped Affleck's effort....his style is just not my cup of tea

The Dark Knight Rises - Obvious plot, terrible villain, absolute codswallop! (and I was a fan of the first two films)

I disagree, ' Lincoln" was civics lesson but a brilliant one, and felt Daniel Day Lewis was incredible, made an icon into a human being, both a brilliant but flawed man .

"Argo" was IMO the best film I saw last year, great acting, script and directing was flawless.

I still have not seen "Dark Zero Thirty" but plan to.


I liked the Dark Knight Rises but it was not as good as the first two films, and thought plot, borrowed from the Gotham Falls or whatever it was called storyline was a lot better then the one in the film.

I also heartily disagree about Argo. I thought it was an excellent film that recaptured the 1970s vibe of political thrillers (All The Presidents Men, Three Days Of The Condor, etc). I have enjoyed all of Affleck's directing efforts (The Town, Gone Baby Gone) and I think it was unfortunate that he wasn't nominated for Best Director.

I still do not understand how a film can win for best picture but its director not be nominated

Different groups of voters pick the nominees.

The directors branch of the Academy choose the best director nominees. The entire Academy choose the best picture nominees. There have been numerous times where a film is chosen but not the director and vice versa.

I read an article in the newspaper that was printed the day before the Oscars and the writer of said article stated that 'Argo' was a shoe-in to win Best Picture. Why? Because the whole premise of the movie is that Hollywood steps in to save the day!

The Academy likes nothing more than movies that proclaim how wonderful they are! Laughing very hard

Argo took home a slew of other awards...

BAFTA (British Academy) - Best Picture, Best Director
AFI (American Film Institute) - Best Picture
DGA (Directors Guild) - Best Picture, Best Director
Golden Globes - Best Picture, Best Director
WGA (Writers Guild) - Best Screenplay

Winning the BAFTA awards shows that non-Hollywood associated industry folk also thought it was a worthwhile achievement.

I'm of the opinion that while 'The Avengers' was very good, it wasn't nearly what it should have been.

I'm in agreeance over 'Zero Dark Thirty', I don't think I could possibly care less or be moved less by the film.

I'm really not a comic book/superhero fan, but I loved The Avengers which shows that it had appeal outside of the core geek demographic. I thought it was great and easily the best of the big summer "tent-pole" films from 2012.

My first response is I would definitely ask what does NOT make you a geek. Laughing very hard

I was referring to "comic book geek" which I've never been.

Both Argo and Zero Dark Thirty were excellent.

Prometheus was the biggest piece of crap I have seen in a long time.

As an aside, my mother in law is an Academy voter and gets screeners of an insane amount of movies. It's always interesting to hear what she voted for. She also passes the screeners on to us to watch.
