TCP: I Was Disappointed


Tuesday Couch Potatoes

A meme where we get to talk about our top pick for a certain topic. Come and be a coucher.


Dear Reader,






Today's theme is a movie that disappointed me. Sad to say, I can't leave it to just one. I'm posting 3. In no particular order, here they are:

  • X-Files I Want to Believe - sure I love the fact that Scully and Mulder are back together, but the characters were so different from what I was so used to in the tv series and the first movie. Plus, where's the supernatural factor? 
  • Queen of the Damned - I guess I expected too much from this movie, since Interview with a Vampire had such a stunningly stellar cast. I was looking forward to powerful characters who would portray the ancient vampires. Maharet, Mekare, and others. Tom Cruise wasn't even Lestat anymore so it was a bit of a letdown for me. I loved Aaliyah as Akasha though.
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix  the Half Blood Prince - maybe I was expecting much more since this was a very important part of the series before the big one.

I have seen Queen of the Damned and Harry Potter, I don't know why they were not my favorite. Aside from Vampire movies are not my fave (except Twilight saga) I am not really fond of Harry Potter movies. I have not seen X Files, just not one of my favorite, I love sci fi channels, and movies and all, but not this particular 1.

I've said before that I don't read or watch stuff about the occult, these are no exceptions. And I'm glad I didn't, knowing from you that they aren't quite the cinematic gems they are hyped to be.
Thanks!
This week, my entry is here.
