There were more movies that I saw this year that were disappointing to me than previous years. While most of the films this year were in the middle, some that wound up in the middle I anticipated being higher.
There may be movies considered for the Spider-Man 3 Disappointment of the Year Award that I didn’t hate. There are some that just were not as good as I hoped.
The Spider-Man 3 Disappointment of the Year
Previous Winners: In the Heart of the Sea, The Snowman, Amazing Spider-Man 2, After Earth, Dark Knight Rises, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Batman v. Superman, Christopher Robin, IT: Chapter Two, Tenet
Runners-Up: Encanta. I usually love these movies, but I found this one dull, especially at the first act. Maybe I need to revisit it some time. One I do not have to revisit is Halloween Kills, which was just terrible. The Rock and Ryan Reynolds? Sounds great. Unfortunately, Red Notice was not great. The latest Fast and the Furious film, F9, sent them into space. Ugh. I loved the first Don’t Breathe, but Don’t Breathe 2 took the best parts of the first one and ruined it. I could not cheer for Stephen Lang as the protagonist. Mortal Kombat trailers looked great. Wrong. Eddie Murphy’s Coming2America should have never been made. It was such a disappointment. However, there was one that was even more so.
The Spider-Man 3 Disappointment of the Year: Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins.
So many issues. While the actors were decent and well cast the fight scenes were unwatchable. They were so shaky you couldn’t see what was happening. We do not see the Snake Eyes outfit until the last few minutes of the movie. And the worst thing was that Snake Eyes was so unlikable. He was the villain. The film did not mean him to be…but he was. This was supposed to be the restart on the G.I. Joe franchise, but this puts that into question.
