Films I expected to be good but...weren't!

A Listmania! list by Mr M.Watts
 
The 25th Hour [DVD] [2003]
1.  The 25th Hour [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Edward Norton
The list author says:
  "What the? given the basic plot outline, I sat and watched and anticipated, waiting for something to happen...anything but no, it just went along with no great finale or twist. A disappointment."

Lantana [DVD] [2002]
2.  Lantana [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Anthony LaPaglia
The list author says:
  "My God! I expected so much more with Anthony LaPaglia being in the star role but no. It was trying to be deeply psychological but it just didn't work for me."

Bruce Almighty [DVD] [2003]
3.  Bruce Almighty [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Jim Carrey
The list author says:
  "Absolutely dreadful! Seriously, it wasn't funny, the plot was simple and at times cliched and you just had to cringe at Carrey's performance. Avoid at all costs."

Heat [DVD] [1995]
4.  Heat [DVD] [1995] DVD ~ Al Pacino
The list author says:
  "Great actors does not equal great film. Yes it was good but I expected so much more and content did not justify the length, it went on and on and on. Watch only if you're really bored."
£5.99   Used & New from: £0.01

One Hour Photo [DVD] [2002]
5.  One Hour Photo [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Connie Nielsen|Robin Williams
The list author says:
  "Granted, I was sceptical about seeing Williams play a bad guy. Aside from that, the film was just creepy and had a slightly confusing ending. If you want creepy, watch se7en."

Signs [DVD] [2002]
6.  Signs [DVD] [2002] DVD ~ Mel Gibson
The list author says:

The Matrix Reloaded (2 Disc Edition) [2003] [DVD]
7.  The Matrix Reloaded (2 Disc Edition) [2003] [DVD] DVD ~ Keanu Reeves

Kill Bill, Volume 1 [DVD] [2003]
8.  Kill Bill, Volume 1 [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Uma Thurman
