Geostorm - worst film ever?

Just saw this tonight - so bad I laughed out loud at the ludicrousness of it all throughout.

Has anyone else seen it? Wooden acting, blunt force plot segues (subtlety is a no no), and OTT CGI which gives no sense of drama.

"You get the car, I get the president", is just one of the hilarious lines which sum up the film and the quality of the script.

Leave your brains and your love for quality filmography at the door and prepare to lose roughly a hundred brain cells a minute, then enjoy what's left. Do that and you will fin it a hoot!

You've sold it to me! Seriously though... I like a totally unrealistic disaster movie. It makes it more fun and less scary. If it was too realistic I'd end up worrying!
However, I will go and watch it in our local cheapo cinema, not the fancy one that is more pricy!

Cant be as bad as Twelve Monkeys, that’s seriously shite shock

NikiBabe Sat 21-Oct-17 22:09:45

Let me say it was shit.

Shit shit shit shit shit shit shit.

And bollocks. grin

I laughed at rhe mandatory dog being saved from death scene that is present is most US disaster films.

CormoranStrike Sat 21-Oct-17 22:18:02

Oh yes - the dog in peril was hilarious, boy practically threw him into the path of the tornado/tsunami/geostorm.

You obviously haven't seen The Snowman yet then.

We actually walked out the cinema.

The lovely Mark Kermode said he thought it might be the most stupid film he has ever seen, and could feel his IQ dropping every minute he watched it grin after 25 years of being a film critic, thats quite a claim! Think I'll give it a miss
...

NikiBabe Sat 21-Oct-17 22:26:02

Seen The Snowman too. I fell asleep for a vast portion of.it. That says it all.

CormoranStrike Sat 21-Oct-17 22:44:12

I saw The Snowman twice, I really liked it.

However,the trailer showed Michael Fassbender outside in the snow while a house was in fire, yet the film didn't; unless I fell asleep for that part (twice!).

user1471449805 Sat 21-Oct-17 22:50:02

I fell asleep in the cinema during 'My Own Private Idaho'.

monkeyfacegrace Sat 21-Oct-17 22:52:40

How the flying fark can anyone like the snowman? It was literally the biggest pile of boring mundane miserable shite I've ever seen.

midsomermurderess Sat 21-Oct-17 22:58:40

Robbie Collins is very funny on what utter hogwash it is. Between him and Mark Kermode, I’ll give it a miss.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sun 22-Oct-17 01:40:23

Either Skyline or Sunshine get that award. Both utter tripe.

powertripe Sun 22-Oct-17 02:01:02

Seriously OP? I've booked to see it this afternoon sad

NikiBabe Sun 22-Oct-17 03:14:51

Yup sorry powertripe it is utter shite.

safariboot Sun 22-Oct-17 03:20:43

Four words and a number:

Plan 9 from Outer Space.

Two headed shark attack.

Actually has one of the baywatch babes posing on a boat for about 10 mins to jaunty music. Weird.

I like crap disaster films so will keep an eye out for geostorm.grin

Godzilla -the 1998 one with Matthew Broderick -was hilariously dreadful. The bit where Godzilla picks up the taxi in it's mouth and they accelerate and manage to drive out, from height, unharmed had the cinema audience in hysterics.
That new Batman vs Superman was awful too.

ChardonnaysPrettySister Sun 22-Oct-17 08:09:32

Can't be worse than Sharknado, can it?

CormoranStrike Sun 22-Oct-17 09:10:43

You may love it @owertripe

CormoranStrike Sun 22-Oct-17 09:10:58

Sorry @powertripe

ManicUnicorn Sun 22-Oct-17 10:01:01

It's got Gerard Butler in it, and that's usually a fairly accurate indicator that a film is going to be total and utter shit in my experience.

NikiBabe Sun 22-Oct-17 10:22:41

Butler was shit in it.

CormoranStrike Sun 22-Oct-17 19:37:37

Well @Powertripe , what do you think?
