The original film is one of the ultimate guilty pleasures. Dumb fun with an amazing soundtrack.  ;D ;D ;D  I'm stoked for the new movie. Looks awesome! At the very least, it should be a vast improvement of the pile of dog shit that was Annihilation.  :X

Annihilation is one of the worst movies ever made. Horrendously bad.

I'm stoked for the new one. I'm expecting to be disappointed, they can't get away from their own source material, but it looks like they at least tried to give it a story with heart, and the action looks dope.

My mom took my brothers and I to see Annihilation in theaters. Even though I was only eight, the movie was so bad that I was actually embarrassed to have begged my mom to take us. I distinctly remember apologizing to her on the way out of the theater. Lol

That'd make a great thread: Worst movie you recommended and the story behind it.

Or just the most disappointing movie you saw with a group of friends/family. I've unfortunately got a few. Maybe we should start a thread. Lol  ;D

When I first read your comment about Annihilation I thought WTF?! I loved that movie...oh wait, different movie, phew. I know what I'm watching tomorrow night.

My biggest regret and apologetic movie moment was 'The New Mutants'. I paid new release streaming rental and damn near forced my wife and daughter to watch it. It's been three months and they still bring it up. I can't be sorry enough. Now that it's out on HBO Max, you've got to watch it. Share in my lost hours of life and chronic misery.

Seriously, has anyone committed the crime of watching that piece of shite?

I've long since given up on the X-Men franchise.  :P

I actually thought the trailers for New Mutants looked interesting, but word of mouth was beyond bad, so I just avoided it.

So...there's no Mortal Kombat tournament in the movie, in case y'all were hoping.

I, for one, am okay with that. They're using the mythos and characters and building a story. I'm on board, as long as the story works.

The more ridiculous the material, the less you say, the better.
