How many times has this happened to a movie fanatic...?
Surfing the net or reading a magazine, we see early news of a far-off movie. And it sounds fantastic! I'm talking high-concept genius here! Just one sentence about the premise is enough to get you imagining a wonderfully constructed and realised piece of popcorn cinema.
And then it's released.
And the world collectively rolls its eyes with disappointment and starts the whole process again.
The most recent time this has happened to me was with Space Chimps (Chimps in space? OMG give that man a medal!). The title itself conjures hilarious mental images. So how come the film was so mediocre (and thats being kind)?
So I open the floodgates for what you got initially excited about only for your hopes to be smashed when the movie was released.
Its High Concept - Low Quality!
Over to you....
