The most mediocre films of 99Jan 30, 2000 (Updated Feb 8, 2000) Write an essay on this topic.
Lots of other bad movies came out last year but, lucky for me, I didn't see them.
The Phantom Menace
The biggest disappointment of the year - great effects and visuals, the worst dialog and plot imaginable.
The magic is not back. Unimaginative, unlikable characters. See Notting Hill instead.
A huge waste of the talents of Sarah Michelle Gellar. I think it was written in 1983 and then directed by someone that was cryogenically frozen at that point and unfrozen to make this pathetic film.
Never Been Kissed
Nice premise, bad script, bad pacing. Bad.
The Talented Mr. Ripley
A throwback to the years when all homosexuals in cinema were portrayed as either homicidal or suicidal. It goes on forever, and manages to be disturbing without being in any way thought provoking. Matt Damon's portrayal of the main character is muddy and confusing.
Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
Over the top in a really not fun way. I'm not saying that it wasn't funny in parts, but it was really uneven.
Blast From the Past
Yet another waste of some good actors. Funny premise (again) badly executed.
The Thirteenth Floor
Yet again, good premise, bad movie. Bad pacing, bad script, boring.
An attempt to make Adam Sandler a loveable, Robin Williams type of character. It doesn't work.
