In Honor of the Release of Pirates 3…

…I present the most disappointing movies of recent times:

10.) Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

Of all the great actors in At World’s End (Geoffrey Rush, Bill Nighy, Johnny Depp, Chow Yun-Fat) somehow Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley ended up with the most screen time and managed to ruin what could have been a great movie. The toe scene was brilliant though.

9.) All the King’s Men

This one had oscar written all over it, yet ended up being one of the worst reviewed films of the year. Unfortunately, not even great actors like Sean Penn, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Anthony Hopkins could save it.

8.) The Village

The movie that put an end to all the Shyamalan-Hitchcock comparisons.

7.) Planet of the Apes

This sounded like the perfect project for Tim Burton at one time, but it just doesn’t stand up to the original. Plus they casted Estella Warren, which was just an awful, awful mistake.

6.) Alexander

Oliver Stone’s done a lot of great things, but this biopic was a huge mess.

5.) Kingdom of Heaven

This one, once again, is Orlando Bloom’s fault, as pretty as he is.

4.) Alien 3

Incredibly anti-climactic, not to mention at times completely boring. There are a few great scenes, and David Fincher’s a good director, but this is no follow up to Aliens.

3.) The Godfather Pt. 3 ***Major spoiler below***

I love Sofia Coppola (Lost In Translation), but she’s responsible for possibly the worst acted death scene in any movie, ever. Kudos to Andy garcia, though.

And now, probably what you all expected (it’s pretty much fact that these are the most disappointing movies of all time):

2.) The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions

Too many things went wrong here to list.

and finally…

1.) Star Wars Episode One: the Phantom Menace

30 years of hype, and then people were actually trying to convince themselves that what they watched wasn’t actually the new Star Wars film. The Jar Jar Binks/Jake Lloyd duo was just too much for some. But yeah, the pod race scene was kinda cool.

So there you have it, feel free to disagree…
