In the Loop (2009)
"Official" Summary:
The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war. But not everyone agrees that war is a good thing.

The Actual Story:
A Minster said that: "the War is Unforeseeable" and ummmm.............that's it?

Political movies always suck, you can read my Syriana Review where i explained in details why political movies suck, but mainly because they all are very pretentious. they treat the audience as they all are law students from Harvard, because, instead of explaining something, they just point at it and pretend that we got it. this movie however, is not like Syriana, it's even worse, it suppose to be a "comedy" with too many cussing, and that's good right? except, you won't get 90% of the jokes, or what's actually happening. i had no idea the entire time about what's going on, what war is this? and who are those people, and who works for who? we're supposed to laugh at it at face-value, but i was annoyed the entire time. seriously, fuck this movie.

"Official" Summary:

The Actual Story:

I bought this movie because there was a label on the disc saying "Will Ferrell in a way you haven't seen before" and they were right......i haven't seen Will Ferrell not doing anything in a movie.

Margin Call (2011)
"Official" Summary:
Follows the key people at an investment bank, over a 24-hour period, during the early stages of the financial crisis.

The Actual Story:
A financial crisis is about to happen.............that's it, i'm serious.
------------------------------------------------
The most pretentious movie i have ever seen, they literally keep pointing to something that you don't see happen and they never explained why it's about to happen.
After an employee at his desk find that a financial crisis is about to happen, he tells his boss, and his boss tells his boss, and his boss tell his........do you see where i'm going? they didn't even solve anything in this movie, it's a horrible movie idea sold entirely because of the mainstream actors in it.

The Actual Story:

------------------------------------------------
One of the most boring movies i have ever seen, it's also very depressing as the clock stops and every minute of this movie becomes an hour, it's literally torture, don't do it to yourself please, you deserve better.

"Official" Summary:
An oddball journalist and his psychopathic lawyer travel to Las Vegas for a series of psychedelic escapades.

The Actual Story:
There's these two stoners right? and they go to Las Vegas to cover a Motorcycle Rally and, you know, they get drunk and high and shit, sounds fun?
------------------------------------------------
In all reality, this movie was the most random thing i have ever seen, i had no idea why it's considered a "cult", it had no story whatsoever, and the scenes weren't connected, nothing made any sense, and i was bored the entire time, read my review below for further details.

"Official" Summary:
An idealistic staffer for a new presidential candidate gets a crash course on dirty politics during his stint on the campaign trail.

The Actual Story:
George Clooney is running for president..... i think?
------------------------------------------------
Movies about elections are so fucking boring, they usually contain too much about too many things that are unimportant. this movie however, was about nothing.........literally nothing, but people watched it because it have few popular faces on it, otherwise, there was no story at all, i just stared at the wall silently for 5 minutes after the movie ended thinking, WTF! was that.

"Official" Summary:
A pair of young lovers flee their New England town, which causes a local search party to fan out to find them.

The Actual Story:
Two kids run out of town?
------------------------------------------------
Apparently, everyone loves Wes Anderson movies because of the style, but this movie is really weird, it had many awesome actors, but they were all playing really weird characters that are not interesting at all, it's sad to waste such talents with poor to no scripts at all, they were just there to make the movie look good, but that isn't all, there's this two kids who run out of town to camp in the middle of nowhere? i mean, WTF!, how this movie is critically acclaimed is beyond me.

United 93 (2006)
"Official" Summary:
A real time account of the events on United Flight 93, one of the planes hijacked on 9/11 that crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania when passengers foiled the terrorist plot.

The Actual Story:
Few Arabs hijack the United Airline 93.
------------------------------------------------
This really irritating because everyone is talking about the tragedy, yet, nobody is addressing how the movie was, i mean, we all know it's a tragedy, but the movie was pure Hollywood cash-grab on that tragedy.
We all know that few Arabs hijacked the United Airline 93, but nobody knows what happened there, shockingly, this movie never offer anything about what happened, i mean, it wasn't about the terrorists, wasn't about the victims, didn't have any actors in it, didn't have a script, no story, you have no attachment to anyone, contained lots of B.S we don't want to see about FAA, so, it basically lacked everything that makes a movie, so, why critically acclaimed? well, it's a tragedy.

The American (2010)
"Official" Summary:
An assassin hides out in Italy for one last assignment.

The Actual Story:
I'm not making this up people, this is literally the "Official" Summary on IMDb, see for yourself the picture below.
------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------
So, George Clooney works as an assassin right? but he never assassinate anyone, he just workout and then have sex, then he workout and then have sex again, so, ummmm, yeah, that's pretty much it.

These movies are so dull and stupid and had little to no story at all, sadly, most of them are critically acclaimed for the wrong reasons, and most of them don't even have the basic elements to be a movie.

I love suggestions, criticism and recommendations, so whatever it is, i like to hear it.

I share your opinion on Leaving Las Vegas and United 93. Thanks very much for bring out doubts about some movies I feared see someday... Great list!

For me,Leaving Las Vegas was not so good on the 1st viewing, but when I rewatched it , it's so powerful for me,especially if once in a lifetime you used to think about killing yourself (suicide), you'd shared experience with this film.
