    Pinocchio
    Directed by Robert Zemeckis, starring Tom Hanks, and they delivered literal horseshit.

    First one up is not so much a bad movie, but rather one that was a huge disappoint for me because I had hoped for so much more than we got:

    Black Adam

    And here are two that I couldn't even finish watching:

    Thor: Love and Thunder. A huge disappointment.

    That neither Westworld nor The Orville got renewed.

    I don't watch all that much fantasy these days, and most of what I saw exceeded my expectations. By the end of the fourth season Westworld improved, just a bit, over the third season. I'm over the Moon about Strange New Worlds, and I loved The Way of Water more than the first Avatar which was itself probably my favorite skiffy film of the century so far.

    Wakanda was not nearly as good as The Black Panther, but it was a pretty good movie anyway, particularly the treatment of Namor, and so I wouldn't call it a disappointment. Love the third Zendaya Spider-Man movie, too.

    BTW, not having seen it, is there some particular reason that JaneThor is required to wear a metal mask?

    Yeah....Secrets of Dumbledore was terrible and horribly convoluted. If I have to hear one more time this appeal to Chinese audiences with the Qilin....:barf2:

    And yes....I couldn't finish Morbius. It was bad.

    I haven't seen Secrets of Dumbledore, but the second one was enough to put me off. The first one was really great and it was interesting to follow Newt's story. The story should have stayed focused on him in the second, but it was so busy and unfocused, with way too many incidental characters, to the point that he was hardly in his own movie. Less is more. Especially true in this case. Seems like they hadn't learned their lessons from the second movie while making the 3rd.

    You might want to put that in the thread title. I've made that mistake a few times.

    I disagree. This was an excellent movie. It was a classic Thor adventure no less.

    Not that the previous two movies were any good, but the promise of the original cast returning and dinosaurs out in the world did get my hopes up. Instead, the movie chose to focus on fucking locusts.

    Rise of the TMNT: The Movie
    Didn't get to see the accompanying TV show, so I had no idea how utterly and absolutely terrible this incarnation of the franchise is.
