Giant Tiger sells a lot of $3 brs (brand new). I've done a lot of blind buying for those prices. Some were really good (The Double, The Hunting Party, etc) while some not so good, especially Ca$h. It starred Sean Bean and Chris Hemsworth. Nothing wrong with that I thought... gosh, I just wanted it to end. It was a struggle fer sure.

I seriously don't know why I actually bought this. I hate the old Godzilla films, I guess I got it to see if my opinion changed or will change? It didn't.

Two recent ones-



Cooties was slightly better but that's not saying much.
Freaks of Nature was a chore to finish watching.

Goodnight Mommy

Battleship
Last Days on Mars
Hobo with a Shotgun
It Follows


I'm sure there are many more but those are the one I can remember now. I'm gonna say they're bad films I just didn't enjoy them as much as I thought I would.

Really???
I watched It Follows in theatres and I enjoy it more with each viewing. Actually, when I first saw it in theatres I thought it was just ok.
I even thought Last Days On Mars was a good blind buy for me. Low/no expectations, maybe?
Babadook was also a good blind buy for me. Not a perfect film but still good.

I really wanted to like "The Happiness Of The Katakuris," everything I'd heard and the bits I'd seen looked like this movie would be right up my alley but I was ultimately very disappointed in the movie. "Monsters: Dark Continent" I had no real expectations for, picking it up used for $5 soon after it was released, but I still felt cheated by the premise and lousy execution.

Finally, "Frankenstein: The True Story" is actually an excellent early 70's made for tv (and shown edited theatrically outside the US) but the transfer on the Japanese Blu-ray is easily the worst looking BD I have in my collection from a technical standpoint. There is all sorts of weirdness going on with the transfer - it may be a standard def PAL source upscaled and (poorly) converted to 1080i, I dunno. I do know the US DVD easily trumps it and it's no great thing itself. I think I paid about $50 from Amazon Japan when it first came out with global shipping and after getting the BD and watching it, I felt like I flushed that money down the toilet.

It wasn't a complete dumpster fire, but who the hell decided to let a movie trailer house edit this??? There was fun action and nice 3D effects, but the movie went all over the place. I also felt that Leto was a terrible choice for the Joker and tried way too hard to be a major threat to anyone other than Harley Quinn. Maybe I'll give it another go one day, but not for a long time.

Wow. I think it's genius. Then again, Glazer has directed three films. This one, Birth, and Sexy Beast and I've found each one to be very, very good. Plus, this has Scarlett.


As for me, it's a tough question because I gave my collection the once over and I don't really dislike any of my blind buys. I suppose if I HAD to choose one it would probably be Haunter. But I like that movie! It's no masterpiece or anything. But it's still enjoyable.

I almost feel guilty choosing any of them, frankly.
"First, a brief preface. Every time I review a film by Jean-Luc Godard, I receive outraged letters from readers who hated it. It is suggested that my reviews and myself join Godard on the trash heap of history; that the customers wuz robbed. A common complaint is that Godard 'made no sense.' And so on." -- Roger Ebert (1966)

Easily. I didnt *hate* it, was just severely underwhelmed by it.
The commentary track on it is pretty solid though and I still havent watched the second feature on the disc, so I'm hoping that will prove to be a bit more up my alley.

The Warcraft movie sucked the big one. Worse I bought it in UHD.

I think I mentioned Breeders in here before. I buy almost anything sci-fi from the 70's up, but Breeders was seriously porno level acting and directing. Not worth a damn to sell either, so it sits in my junk boxes mocking me.

Recently I took a risk on my first Code Red title, Silk. It was pretty horrible too. I'm learning that while I love Canon films "American Ninja" type bad movies I don't love actual bad movies.

Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Two Takes

"In William Greaves’s spontaneous, one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take One, Greaves presides over a beleaguered troupe of camera and sound men in New York’s Central Park in 1967, leaving them to try and decipher exactly what it is they’re making: a strange, bickering couple enacting a break-up scenario over and over; a documentary crew filming a crew filming the crew; locals wandering casually into the frame. A multilayered and wildly entertaining deconstruction of cinema, Symbiopsychotaxiplasm defies easy description yet remains one of the most tightly focused movies ever made about making movies."

No film has ever bored me as completely as this one.

You know what?

I kinda agree with you, but I wouldn't call it "awful".

Just...too "weird" for the sake of being weird even for my standards. Not even Lynch got this out there.


That said, I have no desire to depart with it, as I liked some portions of it. I just wish...it actually built up to something.


Honorable mention goes to "White of the Eye", which I didn't hate either, but didn't fall in love with. Great Nick Mason film score, though and I really enjoyed the documentary on the film's director. Was super shocked that he also helmed the much superior, uber creepy "Demon Seed".

It's not that it's weird, just incredibly boring. I also think that the parts shot with hidden cameras are obvious and inconsistent with the style of the rest of the film, cheapening the whole thing. It could probably be edited into a good short film, though.
