Ridiculous and boring

I'm reviewing this film without a thought about Vladimir Nabokov's novel, for I don't think it's necessary to even bring it up as I'm reviewing the film, not to mention the remake of it...Plus I haven't read the book fully, so I can't judge it, yet. But if it's anything like this crap, then it won't be a nice judgement, that's for sure...

Let’s get the big elephant in the room out of the way first: no film adaptation will ever be as good as the novel Lolita. The first half hour, give or take, does come close to matching the seductive, sumptuous, comic and doomed narrative of the novel. And shortly thereafter, Adrian Lyne decides he wants to stop making a luscious and vivid adaptation and make an overly stylized intriguing mess of... read more

The movie (like the book) is an interesting study of obsession and desperation. Jeremy Irons plays his part well, but overall it's not great going, largely because the director doesn't really know where to go take the movie. He opts for the gray and gloomy period piece route and the result is that the film has no urgency and tension. We only get the occasional glimpse into the desperate mind of Hu... read more

Description: Humbert Humbert, a British professor coming to the US to teach, rents a room in Charlotte Haze's house, but only after he sees her 14-year-old daughter, Dolores (Lolita), to whom he is immediately attracted. Though he hates the mother, he marries her as this is the only way to be close to the girl, who will prove to be too mature for her age. They start a journey together, trying to hide they're not just (step)father and daughter, throughout the country, being followed by someone whom Humbert first suspects to be from the police. The profound jealousy, and maybe some guilt from the forbidden love, seem slowly to drive the man em ... (more)

Excuse me, but I have to ask: Why would anyone want to watch a film about a promiscuous 14 year old girl, a old man and inappropriate sexual relationships. You people are disgusting if you in any way enjoyed this rubbish. You should definitely be ashamed of yourselves. As far as I got into the book, I can't say I'm really impressed so far, I guess it's just not my type of book, I have better taste you could say. But literature is something compl” read more

"November 08, 2012 I don't know what to expect, but the film is not too much I loved it. Lolita irritated me so much that I couldn't judge the film differently. In addition, it was just boring."

Movies Hollywood Was Afraid to Make (8 movies items)

"Vladimir Nabokov’s scandalous novel about a middle-aged man’s affair with a teenage girl made film executives expectedly skittish when Stanley Kubrick directed its first film adaptation in 1962, and to appease them, Kubrick upped the title character’s age and left much of the scandalous content out of the frame. But director Adrian Lyne had no easier time with his 1997 film version; the existence of the R rating allowed him to make a more faithful adaptation, but his $62 million independen"

"I feel bad saying this but I really prefere Lyne's version of Lolita rather than Kubrick's. To be fair, his hands were pretty much tied up due to the censorship he had to go through to get the film into production. Still, Lolita ,to me, is a tragic love story and Lyne focused on that while Kubrick turned it into a clever satire, a comedy really. Also, the casting in the 1997 version was much better. Jeremy Irons fits perfectly the Humbert I had in mind while reading the novel whereas Mason does"
