It Waits (2005)
This movie misses it's mark in every way. It's tough to tell exactly what this creature is supposed to be. There apparently are no real rules governing it's behavior, as it comes out day or night with no aversion to light which makes you wonder why the characters feel so secure trampsing around during the day. It doesn't like rain but it doesn't hurt it and the creature runs around in it during the movie. Now to the two largest gaffs This creature is strong enough to rip out an engine and overturn a jeep as well as capable of pushing over the Ranger's tower but it cannot move the rocks in front of it's cave, and during one pivotal scene an expert on the monster gives the heroine a book of legends concerning our beast (which incidentally is never referenced again) saying it took shaman 500 years to bury the evil in his cave, must just be because they couldn't catch him home because all that was needed was a baby gate in front of the entrance and he was screwed. Lastly for those of us who also have seen Cabin Fever I'm sure a lot of the draw of this movie was Cerina Vincent. This movie butchers it's only selling point when during the "love scene" the wholly untalented miss Vincent stays covered, unlike in Cabin Fever when she is involved in multiple raunchy scenes. Ah, big stars and no nudity clauses, a shame movie might be worth ten bucks now it's a coaster.
Are we sure Uwe Boll didn't direct?
I will give the reasons for you to run from Catwoman in list form to keep it simple and direct.
1) Catwoman isn't anything without Batman to antagonize the featurette on the faces of Catwoman knows this but the geniuses behind the movie missed it. 2) What was the last good cosmetic themed movie you've seen? 3) It's exactly like Spiderman if everybody involved especially the CG artists had massive brain damage. 4) Backstory is dumb and thankfully she had someone tell her she was Catwoman I don't want to think how long the movie would have been if she had to figure it out herself. 5) At least 1/2 the movie is dedicated to her romantic interest which she quickly disposes of in a "dear john" letter in 15 seconds at the end. 6) Most importantly and this seems to be a common thread in all failed superhero movies WHY MAKE A SUPERHERO MOVIE WITHOUT A SUPER VILLAIN? Sharon Stone's hard as marble makeup skin isn't quite the Green Goblin or Dr. Octopus is it. One positive, thankfully because this movie met with universal despise the potential cliffhanger ending will remain without sequel.
Don't bother if you don't know the source material
I will start by saying I've never read this book or seen the old BBC show. I will not say this is a bad movie just one that will have no effect on you if you don't have some background with this material. Not being a fan of Hitchhiker's Guide my only source for comparison is Monty Python Which I am a huge fan of, unlike many other reviewers being a Python fan doesn't mean you will like this. In my opinion there is absolutely nothing in this that compares with the worst of Python much less "The Holy Grail". The humor is overwhelmingly dry and almost nonexistent if once again you don't relate to the characters and know something about them. I saw this movie for free and felt like I paid to much the visual effects are neat but the "humor" is lacking and repetitive. And for the Love of God People just because this is British as well as Python don't compare them because they aren't comparable.
