As a film major, I tend to watch movies through to the end, no matter how bad they are. There’s almost always some lesson to be learned, even if it’s how not to make movies.
In fact, as well as I can remember, I have only ever intentionally stopped watching one movie (I say intentionally stopped, because when I was 7, we had to leave the theatre in the middle of Big Top Pee-wee because I had a stomach ache. And when you’re channel surfing or killing time, you usually don’t start watching a movie with the intention of making it all the way through. At least, I don’t). That movie was Tideland. I like Terry Gilliam’s movies, but after 30 minutes, I didn’t give a shit about any of the characters, was bored out of my mind, and really wanted to spend the next 90 minutes of my life doing anything else.
Well, today I have officially (intentionally) stopped watching my second movie. It’s called Recon 2022: The Mezzo Incident. I have no idea what the writers of this movie were thinking when they wrote it, but it’s absolutely awful. The story is weak, the characters are flat and predictable, and the actors can’t even deliver their shitty lines well. All-in-all, this is a bad movie. Not even nude boobs were able to save it!
From now on, I’m going to have to check out the IMDb ratings for movies before I start watching them.0 People like this. Be the first!
