PS: Movies That the Poll Board Members Wanted to Like but Didn’t

Please contribute!

Description:
Some movies can really appeal to you because you love the actors, the director, the storyline or the productiuon design. They seem cool and interesting and you have the feeling that this movie will become a personal favorite. But then, after watching the movie, you're dissapointed. And that's to bad. You wanted to like the movie but you didn't.
These are the movies the IMDb Poll Board members wanted to like, but didn't. Which movie dissapointed you the most?

There have been very, very many over the years. The Matrix Reloaded  stands out in my memory.

But give me a bit of time to think before I submit my final choice, please.

 first one that comes to my mind is Lost in Translation, I had very high expectations and I was terribly bored. and totally uninterested in the characters.  A similar case happened a few years later with The Hurt Locker

Ooh!  Very good suggestion!
For me, there's so many...
but I guess I'll have to go with Maleficent (2014).
I was so excited about it, but when I finally saw it I could barely watch it.  :(

I'm sure that there are many others but the first one to come to mind is 'Joker.'

Several films come to mind;

Fight Club (1999)
Reservoir Dogs (1992)
Life Is Beautiful (1997)
The Da Vinci Code (2006)

These are not bad movies per se (except for the last one), but I just couldn't like them as much as everyone else seems to do (once again, except for the last one).

But if I had to choose one, my pick would be:

2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

Please correct:

production design
But then, after watching the movie, you're disappointed. And that's too bad.
Which movie disappointed you the most?

Hobbit. I wanted it to be like Lord of the Rings but it wasn't.

If I remember correctly I was really excited for Focus (2015) because of the leads, saw it in the theaters. Movie got dull fast and was even more disappointed because I could have watched Birdman instead.

Bladerunner 2049.
I though that they will make it more interesting, fluent - a more tying story. They blew it!
I slept in  the first one, because of the movie being long winded. Then the reboot came out. Like in the first movie half an hour was pretty good and then it begann to bore me. Pretending that there is more than there really was. Both movies are sleeping pills to me. The most bad things are logical errors at the end of the reboot.

I hope it becomes a poll. It's a good idea. I'm sure I would have a second movie I could add. ;)

I never said I didn't like the Snyder cut. (I haven't even seen it ... yet.)

I only asked if you could add the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut hashtag.

Please correct it. Thank you.
