Not the recent remake but the original to mini series. Which was only two episodes. And holy cow is it bad. But funny bad. But also amazingly bad, in all departments, the writing, acting, filming, everything. And it went on for ages. I don’t even know why we started watching it. Tim Curry is Pennywise, who seems to be enjoying himself, everyone else is overacting. Or not acting at all.

The older kid in this scene is one of the main actors, he sadly took his own life at age 27.
This will be a short review as this is hardly worth the energy needed to peck at keys (I am a two-finger typist, but I am decently fast) and move a mouse.
The first installment in this series was a hoot, the second maybe better, the third I have not seen. This one though was just awful and not in a good way. Not even The Hoff or Gary Busey could save this. Gary is but a ghost of his former self.
That is all I can write.

I seem to be having a run of bad film watching recently, but I have been actively seeking them out as I need brainless at the moment. Which brings us to this total turkey. What the hell is going on in this film? The bad guy, or one of the bad guys, he’s the main bad guy anyway, does disappear for a while but I’ll call him the main bad guy is the single worst bad guy ever. And it’s all because of Eddie Redmayne’s portrayal of him, totally bad. Laughably bad. Embarrassingly bad. Bad bad bad describes this movie all around. Makes for a funny Honest Trailer though.
The 0.5 point is for Terry Gilliam’s cameo.

I thought I would continue my Eddie-Murphy-a-thon by watching this (the first two films are strangely not on Hulu Plus).
And I am done with Eddie Murphy films as this was atrocious. I still think Eddie is a funny actor, but back in the 90’s he was just doing non-stop crap films. This was directed by John Landis, so I place most of the blame on him. Eddie himself says this film wasn’t very good.
Basically it just seems the writers thought up a bunch of action scenes first, then quickly wrote in the boring bits in between, and to make it more exciting they thought it would be good to set most of the film in a theme park because everyone likes theme parks.
The film started off as if we had joined the action somewhere in the middle of the film. It went straight into a raid on a chop shop, no scene setting or introduction to the characters in a relaxed setting; John Landis does not need no stinkin’ scene setting. From there it was just relentless nonsensical plot lines, terrible action scenes that even the A-Team would be ashamed of (actually Mr. T would have been a better choice as Axel Foley in this film), and poor direction.
John Travolta’s older brother had a part in this, you can see him here. George “Let’s Make Star Wars Cute” Lucas had a cameo, you can see him below at the 0:49 mark, but watch all of this video as it gives you a good idea of how crappy this film is.
Do yourself a favour and do not watch this.

Score: 0.5/10 (the guy in the second video below was kind of funny, so he gets 0.5, Bronson Pinchot is his name)

Well, this was a shocker. I didn’t remember any of it, probably because I shut this completely out of my mind, and I probably vowed to never watch it again, but because I shut it out of my mind I also forgot the vow I made. Dang.
There are slightly worse films, but only just so this does not get zero.
