That's terrible logic. Because a studio wants to market a goofy horror film for a crowd that brings the Saw, Hostel, etc... market big bucks and misrepresents the film, that shouldn't discount you wanting to see it. I understand that it comes down to taste, and that's cool, but to cite advertising as a reason is stupid.

Word-of-mouth and places like Rotten Tomatoes and MetaCritic are the best places to make an informed decision before seeing a movie, not some TV spot or commercial for a film of this nature.

Unfortunate.
Good catch. I'm very disappointed in myself for doing so. Although, I will say that I wrote that out like right when I woke up today and was a bit groggy. Still unfortunate, though.

While I'm glad Sam Raimi is back to doing more "personal" (or at least quirky) films, I don't think I'll ever forgive him for Spider-Man 3. And I wasn't a fan of the first one either.

So I'm not bothered by the relatively poor reception.

I saw Drag Me To Hell. It's pretty hilarious. And disgusting.

Apparently that movie was a result of crazy studio interference, but that doesn't excuse Peter's arc and how obnoxious Kirsten Dunst continues to be.

I just don't see why I should see it, for all I know it's more of the same as the advertising shows, critics are idiots a lot of the time. Maybe I'll catch it when it's on tv, but I'm not gonna pay to see it. Seriously the plot looks idiotic, if I want to see a horror film, I'll go to one that has a somewhat decent plot.

Well when a commercial shows the plot of a film and why she is cursed, I think it's a good enough to be able to decide that the plot is something I would absolutely hate.

And what I'm saying is, when you've got literally everyone who comes out of it saying "Hey, wait a second, it's legitimately funny, scary, and a bit schlocky, not at all how it's advertised," that's when you should at least take a second and look back and revisit your initial decision.

The plot is the same, yeah, but it's what's done within it that makes for a good experience. Either way, you're missing out. Go watch an Evil Dead movie.

I've seen the Evil Dead movies, good movies but honestly I'd rather watch one of those again then see Drag me to hell but that film does look funny, in an "oh my god this is terrible" type of way, but Terminator: Salvation was enough of those type of films for me for this year

Terminator's a perfect example on how to avoid a shit movie. I was so revved up for that until it actually came out.

The Hangover was pretty funny. Not too memorable, but Zach Galifiankis was way too fucking awesome.

I really wish I didn't see Terminator, that film was funny for all the wrong reasons. Without even getting into the plot...Christian Bale's voice is enough to put me off

I'm curious to see the Hangover though, just for the Mike Tyson part alone

Agreed. An example of a movie that was hyped to the point that it made me—not a fan of that type of fare—want to go see it just to see what the deal was.

It wasn't as funny, at least to me, as others had made it out to be, but I still laughed out loud at several parts. And the closing credits was actually my favourite part of the movie.

I love seeing comedies either in a packed theater the first weekend or wait until it hits DVD, and this one's certainly worth seeing for a steady stream of laughs throughout.

And where did the hype come from? Fucking studio marketing. Got butts in the seats for the first weekend, and now they've got a hit. Success, Hollywood.

One film I'm sad I didn't see in the cinema was Twilight, then again I would of probably been killed by an army of teen girls for laughing out loud every five seconds

Why would you even want to see it in the first place? I'm all for unintentional comedy, but that's something else entirely. In 2-3 years, it'll all be over though, which is comforting.
