1. Has there been a movie lately that you looked forward to seeing for months, only to find that it was a total dud? Perhaps a movie that was really touted in reviews or "top ten" lists, and you see it and go "huh"?
What was it? For me, the latest one was THE TREE OF LIFE. Fifteen minutes into it, I had totally lost all patience in it and turned it off.
2. What about really popular movies that everyone tells you is great, best thing ever, and you go and find it less so? For me, everyone told me that CRAZY STUPID LOVE was wonderful and better than the average romance movie. If that's the case, the average romance movie much be really bad.
3. What do you do when after the movie, everyone's going, "oh, that was SO good" and you're gritting your teeth? Do you say something or, for fear of being viewed as negative, a snob, or a wet blanket you say nothing?
4. And finally, when was the last time you went to a movie with someone and it's their turn to pick the movie and they pick something that you expect to be either a crashing bore or ridiculous, but you end up loving it? For me, that was BRIDESMAIDS.
