I signed in just to add this review on the remake of Pet Sematary. I'm at a loss for words and hardly know where to start with this review. First off, the storyline was altered dramatically from the actual story, and this was the first huge mistake. The movie was also extremely slow, boring, and just ridiculously idiotic. It lacked substance and anything else that would cause this movie to be the least bit likeable. I don't know who's idea it was to remake this movie, but it should've been left alone. There's not even any comparison between the original and this piece of crap. And the ending just pissed me off due to the stupidity of it. John Lithgow REALLY should've passed on this embarrassment of a remake.
This is undoubtedly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It's also based on a true story, but really falls short in regards to the way things actually happened. Save yourself the annoyance of watching this movie because it sucks bigtime.
This is hands-down one of the worst movies I've ever seen. There's no real plot or point to the entire movie. I also can't get past how horrible the father's acting was. Honestly extremely painful to watch.
I'm truly not understanding all of the hateful reviews on this movie. It was actually pretty good in my opinion. Many people are saying this movie was horrible, blah blah blah. It was FAR from horrible. However, I do get the annoyance over not knowing the answers to certain things such as where and how they obtained food, water, and other things over a period of 5 years. Other than that, it's a pretty decent movie.
First, how does the movie just start with no background information explaining to the audience how this woman even ended up stuck and living in this basement?? Like what happened to her that landed her in this place?? I honestly couldn't get past the first 20 minutes of this movie because it was so boring and offers no explanation for anything. I have no clue how it got such high ratings.
I usually like movies with Meagan Good, but this movie was totally stupid. She plays a character who's extremely desperate to find a man to the point where it totally consumes her. This is the reason so many women end up in horrible relationships. This movie relays one message loud and clear: if you're a woman without a man, you better start trying HARD to find one under any circumstances. Another example of why I gave this movie 1 star: This main character's coworker ends up dating and then marrying a man they met in a club. Just one problem! He's VERY gay! Now, I have absolutely no problem with men or women who are homosexuals, but why on earth would it be written into the script to have this woman marry a man who's so obviously gay??? This movie sends many very bad and condescending messages to women, and it's very unfortunate considering the times we're currently living in. I certainly wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone unless they're just bored and have lots of time to kill.
This movie was one of the most boring I've EVER seen in my life. It had absolutely no point to it whatsoever. All I saw was people standing in the backyard most of the movie talking about not much of anything. What made it even worse was the fact that the main character was completely self-centered and didn't care about anyone but himself, but all of the characters are urged to show this man respect when all he was was a walking selfish jerk. 2 hours and 13 minutes of a plot less movie where the audience must endure over 2 hours of watching Troy do everything wrong and still be looked at as a great man somehow. I just wish I could get my $12 back along with those 2 hours of my life I lost.
