The previews look pretty amazing, the story sounded cool. Halfway through the movie, while completely sober and drug-free, it felt like I was on a trippy adventure which I did not want to be apart of. Not to mention, the story itself didn't seem to make much sense.

Baby Mama (2008)
I love both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but after seeing this performance, it was too disappointing. It wasn't funny; it was plain sad.

Blade Runner (1982)
Plenty of people told me that this movie is a classic and that it's worth watching. I just couldn't see how great this was. Maybe it's because I'm not too big into science-fiction. Maybe it's something else. But this movie didn't cut it for me.

The Box (2009)
Damn previews and how they made this look so good. It would have been a decent movie if they would have taken out a few unbelieveable parts.

Cyrus (2010)
Trailer=a must-see comedy of the year-type movie.
Actual movie=lacked music and much of a plot. Not to mention, there wasn't anything too funny about it at all.

I figured since it had Steve Carell and Dane Cook featured, it wouldn't be too bad of a movie. Hardly a comedy at all. More of a drama than anything...nothing wrong with dramas, but it's not ok when you try pulling this off as a comedy.

Despicable Me (2010)
Seemed pretty dumb when I saw previews, but I felt it should have been given a fair chance before completely judging it. My first assumption was correct: looked dumb and indeed, it was.

Steve Carell's character=dumbest that he's ever done; nearly wrecked the movie. Granted I felt bad for him, but at the same time, I didn't. Way too many dumb scenes for me to enjoy.

At first, this seemed like an interesting find. But it was yet another disappointment. Could have been done a lot better; but it just wasn't meant to be...

The Eye (2008)
I didn't expect too much coming into this movie, but I thought it would have been a little more thrilling than the cover and previews depicted.

The Grudge 2 (2006)
[Only pro]: A lot better than The Grudge 3.
[Cons]: Didn't live to its predecessor's success, really didn't have much to do with the previous and if done differently, it might have been a decent movie.

This wasn't as bad as some of the others on this list, but nonetheless, it's still a disappointment. Plot was ok enough, but the scares weren't cutting it and the ending was too cliche.

The Others (2001)
One of the many I was looking forward to watching, but the ending was where it downhill. Maybe it's just me, but it seemed too obvious that they were actually ghosts and not alive during the whole movie. Too cliche.

Quarantine (2008)
I would have loved to see the original [Rec] instead of seeing this garbage. I enjoy watching Jennifer Carpenter from Dexter and thought I'd see how she was in an actual movie. Major disappointment.

The Ring Two (2005)
Another one of those I didn't have high hopes for, simply because sequels (for the most part) aren't as good as their previous...but come on. They could have done a lot better than this.

One of my personal most anticipated movies to see. Extremely disappointed. The story seemed too drawn out and didn't really go anywhere, but even when it got to the climax part, it wasn't nothing special. Again, way too disappointing.

This wasn't a completely terrible movie, but there was just too much computer jargon that I didn't understand, which was the biggest disappointment of the movie. On another note...much too long. Didn't need to have a few scenes in it, but that's an opinion.

Zombieland (2009)
Once again, it was one of those movies where people told me it was funny as hell and a great movie to see. However, I had no idea there was so much gore in it (not the biggest fan of it) and there were only a few funny parts. To me, not worth it.

I did a little research on this movie before I watched it and based on what I found, it sounded like a very good movie. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty decent, but it was still a major letdown from my expectations. Personally, Adam Sandler should just stick to his usual genre of movies. He's damn good at comedy; not so much in the drama aspect.
