TCP: I Was Disappointed

Tuesday Couch Potatoes

A meme where we get to talk about our top pick for a certain topic. Come and be a coucher.

Dear Reader,

Today's theme is a movie that disappointed me. Sad to say, I can't leave it to just one. I'm posting 3. In no particular order, here they are:

  • X-Files I Want to Believe - sure I love the fact that Scully and Mulder are back together, but the characters were so different from what I was so used to in the tv series and the first movie. Plus, where's the supernatural factor? 
  • Queen of the Damned - I guess I expected too much from this movie, since Interview with a Vampire had such a stunningly stellar cast. I was looking forward to powerful characters who would portray the ancient vampires. Maharet, Mekare, and others. Tom Cruise wasn't even Lestat anymore so it was a bit of a letdown for me. I loved Aaliyah as Akasha though.
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix  the Half Blood Prince - maybe I was expecting much more since this was a very important part of the series before the big one.

haven't seen the first two but saw the order of the phoenix.. it was nice but quite different from the book. ang haba din kasi ng order of the phoenix na book kaya na limit ang movie.

thanks for joining us this week mys. next week we will feature wedding movies naman. till then, take care and happy tcp!

I have seen Queen of the Damned and Harry Potter, I don't know why they were not my favorite. Aside from Vampire movies are not my fave (except Twilight saga) I am not really fond of Harry Potter movies. I have not seen X Files, just not one of my favorite, I love sci fi channels, and movies and all, but not this particular 1.

I've said before that I don't read or watch stuff about the occult, these are no exceptions. And I'm glad I didn't, knowing from you that they aren't quite the cinematic gems they are hyped to be.
This week, my entry is here.
