God damn it! Dreamcatcher sucks ass!

Never in my life have I wasted money in the manner that I did this evening- paid to see Dreamcatcher.

By God, avoid this dull, uninteresting ridiculous nonsense movie. It assaults the intelligence of the viewers.

The plot? Completely ridiculous. Focused on only dull parts. I really can't say any more than it was a complete mess and often laughable for its badness. Effects were not at all good. Work with puppets as opposed to Computer FX might have made it ok. It was in no way scary. It just wasn't. And whatever potential of tension it could have had was completely blown.

Never in my life (except Sole Survivors) have I been this...offended. The acting was often completely ridiculous, mostly due to Bill Goldmans awful script. I swear by God that it was awful. I don't know what state of mental depression Goldman was in, but it couldn't be worse. If someone else than Goldman had written it? A first-time writer? Wouldn't have been made.

I am furious that my money was spent. Yes, 12 bucks. Some kind of ridiculous "premiere night" here in Denmark. I am 16, money doesn't fall off of trees. Jesus Christ this movie was so awful.

DO NOT SEE IT.

I'm with pants on this one. You had far too much warning to stay clear of this.

Hell the simple fact that they attached the Animatrix short to the front of it should have told you that they wanted to secure some box office sales on the short being the selling point.

They were all over the place when the film opened about a month ago. Where were you then?

I didn't like it that much, but I wouldn't go so far as to get all angry about it. It certainly had moments, but it was a bit of a mess overall.

I too had the very unfortunate time of witnessing this abomination of a movie. Congrats Kasdan, on producing a disgusting abortion of a movie. Shame on everyone involved in this pile of dried piss. No one came out ok on this one. Horrible horrible horrible.

It is strange that no one involved in the production broke the alarm and warned of how much it would suck.

From now on I'll ask in here every time I wanna see a movie.

Even Morgan Freeman couldn't save this one. Actually this may be the first movie where I could say he sucked.

You know what's sad? We even had a user on here that hyped the film thinking it would be great. Needless to say they later had to eat their words.

Parcher: typically people in the production don't break the alarm about how their movie sucks as they fear losing future employment.

HHHHmmmm, people who didn't enjoy this movie, must of didn't read the book.

If you didn't read the book, then it's quite obvious that you're not going to like the movie.

A few threads devoted to bashing this movie already, but it deserves another. It did indeed suck.
