So was I the only LARP geek who hated Knights of Badassdom enough to turn it off midstream?

I mean, don't get me wrong...I loved the first bit - especially the opening scenes with the LARP event and not just because I recognized about a third of the extras by face (movie was filmed in the Northwest and those were my people). Furthermore a lot of the gags about geeks were hilarious. I even knew a guy who was exactly like Peter Dinklage's character...drug use during game included. So I really wanted to like the film.

Then the demon showed up and started killing people for no reason slasher-flick style, and I got real grumpy. Ended up turning it off after said demon chick ripped Awkward Poly Girl's back open after making out with her - that scene pissed me off so much I have no plans to finish the film.

I was sorely and angrily disappointed. Anyone else in this boat?

If I were to write some of the strange things that come under my eyes they would not be believed. ~Cora M. Strayer~

Drunk: It looked like a stinker fit for only the Synchtube coven so I passed on it.

What are the worst sequels you've seen? I just watched Neverending Story 3, a shit stain on the franchise. The characters were all wrong, caricatures of what they were in the first two movies, poorly designed, some of them even renamed, the new characters were cringey. The only element that makes this remotely watchable is Jack Black, and even he hates this movie.

Who are the ones that we kept in charge? Killers, thieves, and lawyers. God's away, god's away, god's away on business... business.

The third Star ship troopers live action film was horrid beyond reason. At least the second one somewhat kept with the sarcastic theme of the first one. The third one seems to have forgotten a lot of it and jumped the shark. The ending was amazingly awkward and felt like real life propaganda.

The Hangover sequels.

Disclaimer: I have grown to hate the original movie, but at least I hate The Hangover on its own merit. While the plot was tight and fast-paced, it lost nearly all of its rewatch value due to all the characters being assholes.

Since the sequels are basically a 100% copy-paste job, I hated them even more than the original for being so formulaic.

Turner Classic Movies at work just ran the original 1933 King Kong. That was a full blow nostalgia flick. I remember why I used to enjoy the stop motion technique and it even reminded me of Clash of the Titans with its stop motion monsters.

i just want to say how much I adore late-70's-to-early-90's movies? I know that's probably seen as cliche, and its understandable, but I feel they really knew what they were doing. the original jurassic park trilogy, the karate kid trilogy (although i do love the continuation the cobra kai series gives), star wars, definitely rain man... in fact rain man is sort of in a category of its own in my opinion. i appreciate how it doesn't give the stereotypical Happily Ever After ending, and it ends very ambiguously with Charlie not getting custody but still having visitation, among other things. its just a very realistic look at a few of the struggles of being understood with autism, which i can very much appreciate as someone on the spectrum.
