Forgetful Films

Seem to be having a bad run of films lately. Sometimes wonder how they can be made. Does the director not care? Or does the studio realise that it's going to be a stinker but carry on with it anyway to try to get the money back?

It's incredibly annoying to watch bad films but once I've started, I have to finish. Just in case.

I highly recommend that you avoid:

Around The World In 80 Days - If Richard Branson turns up in a cameo appearance then you know it's trouble. Absolutely awful in all respects.

Mindhunters - A bunch of soon-to-be FBI profilers on a final test but run around like panicking 5 year-olds. Slick film, rubbish script.

National Treasure - Mostly enjoyable but with huge plot holes and is vaguely familiar if you've read The Da Vinci Code.

On the other hand A Clockwork Orange was great. Wanted to see it for a long time, finally got around to it.
