    Rush Hour 3 sucked balls, but then again I didn't really want to see it in the first place.... so I guess that doesn't cout.

    But biggest letdown would easily be INLAND EMPIRE. I like Lynch, but this was just too painful, and at 3 hours it really gave me a headache. I was expecting so much more.

    Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. It was the first time I was ever let down by a Halloween movie. I actually really liked Halloween 5 alot, and could not wait to see 6. So I was just really bummed when it finally came out.

    THE PHANTOM MENACE.All of the mysticism built up around THE FORCE,explained away as a freakin' blood disorder.Obi Wan spends half the film running blood tests,like he's in some alternate universe episode of QUINCY.Darth Maul,built up to be the greatest bad ass in history shows up looking like a college football team's mascot and kills off the only guy in the film who seems to be half way (I said HALF WAY) trying to act.Lets not forget the miracle of Jake Lloyd as young Anakin Skywalker.There are two grades of child actor,the first can wrest a tear from the most heartless of us,reduce us to blubbering with raw,real performances.The second class are here to say "Leggo of my Eggo !".
    Pass the butter,Jake.

    I was hugely dissapointed with The Devil's Rejects when viewing in the theater, but I've since grown to love the film.

    Friday the 13th: A New Beginning
    There were many letdowns following this, but this is the first one I remember really hitting me so hard. I was sure that Jason had gotten himself a really bad mask this time around, but that ending was like a slap in the face.

    28 DAYS LATER. First half great, second half was a big pile of shit. Still interested in the sequel, though.

    SIGNS was probably my most hated movie, but I wouldn't call it a letdown since I didn't have ultra-high expectations for it.

    Ooh tough one. Off the top of my head I'd say a tie between Alien 3 and Army Of Darkness.

    My biggest letdown was 1989, I think, when I went to see Shocker, got kicked out for being underage in an R rated theater, and had to go sit through Look Who's Talking instead :(

    Me too. My friend and I were sitting there, watching this pile unfold and suddenly we realize the "twist ending." And we both start to get moan about it. And then we start getting angry. And then we stomp out of the theaters and we still talk about it to this day.

    Jason X-a bigger letdown than Jason Goes To Hell..incredibly enough.
    An American Werewolf In Paris-Loved An American Werewolf In London, this sequel was not necessary.
    Halloween Resurrection-Busta Rhymes and the whole reality show angle did not work for me.
    The Blair Witch Project-overhyped and blah!!
    Godzilla(1998)-Hated it, I actually thought Godzilla 1985 was better.
    Disturbia-I had heard such great things and found it so boring.

    Natural Born Killers...I left about half way into it. I've tried to watch it twice at home and still have not made it through.

    Escape From L.A. I didn't even know the movie was being made until I saw the trailer a couple of weeks before it came out and I was just pumped to see it. I went to the first showing of the day with a couple of friends. Man were we ever disappointed. Such a let down.

    Here's one for ya...are you ready for this? A friend and I went to a matinee showing of Tobe Hooper's 'Mortuary.' Talk about shitfest. It was okay up to a certain point, but by the end it just completely fell to shit. If you've seen it you know what I'm talking about. It looks as though they completely ran out of budget by the end of the film. The lame ass cgi at the end just kills it. Also, I wanted to strangle my friends dumb ass for dragging me to see 'Lady In The Water'. Maybe I'm missing something, but that film pissed me offf so bad I left the theater angry and wanting to hurt somebody.
