Dark Nemesis [Blu-ray]
Top Customer Reviews
Why did I (try to) watch it? I LOVE bad movies. The worse, the better. A bad movie can cleanse the palate. But this one was so blandly, unashamedly bad I couldn't even stay awake to ridicule it. I woke up feeling stained and slutted on. Five minutes into it I caught myself wearing an embarrassed grin even tho it was just me and my kid in the room, and the room was dark. It was so bad my 13-year old quit dissecting it.
Go ahead and rent it just so you can see for yourself. At least writing the review is fun. Totally worth the buck, I guess.
Here's the plot in a nutshell:
Huh? over their. Huh? Dangar loaming. Move quick. Huh. Uh. Duh? Huh? Me? HER! Duh! Huh? Uh...Denger ohead. Lookitout. Thans you Garfun.
Seriously, do not even CONSIDER renting this movie. Save your money, time, and the disappointment. If you see ANY positive reviews on this movie it's either someone unfortunately involved in the making of this film or it's an intended joke. One look at the first CG'd monster and you'll laugh. I fast-forwarded through to see if there was any substance to the film, but it remained shallow throughout and at one point even repeated the entire opening scene in the middle of the movie. There is no cinematic quality here. Zero. Might as well have been filmed by students just discovering how to use a video camera and edit films. How did this make Redbox?!
Seriously, this is hands-down the worst movie you will ever watch. I rented it on the basis of the cover graphics, which seemed kind of cool, and the brief description, which sounded harmless yet potentially intriguing enough. The cover art was literally the best part of the movie, even though the beast depicted there does not appear anywhere in the movie.
I have certainly turned off movies before--some after even as long as 45 minutes--because they were that boring, but this one I *had* to watch until the end because of how painfully bad it was, because it actually became comical to watch, and because I needed to know how this abomination was going to end. Here's what you can expect to see. Take note, there *are* spoilers ahead, but it really won't matter. There is absolutely nothing that can make this movie any worse than it is, and there just isn't anything of substance to genuinely ruin for you. You'll probably thank me for presenting the movie to you here free of charge rather than having you waste both your time and money renting/buying it and watching it. In no particular order, here's a baker's dozen of tidbits for you to enjoy:
(1) The battle scene at the beginning of the movie looks literally like the actors were standing in front of a big background painting or it was a really badly done green screen effect. It seemed like the same seven or eight guys just kept charging at each other back and forth across in front of the camera.Read more ›
Everything the other reviewers say about how bad the movie is are completely accurate. The movie is horrible and there is really no reason to ever watch it. It's not cult classic material, it's not fun to ridicule even. It's just, well, boring. Horrible, confusing, and boring.
I suppose if watching people in costumes walk, run, and walk some more through the forest is your thing, then I guess you found your dream movie because that is what 90% of this movie is.
Do yourself a favor. Stare at the cool cover and imagine you are watching an awesome movie based on it. Then pick a different movie to actually watch because none of cool stuff on the cover is actually in this movie.
When Google's artificial intelligence system DeepMind defeated the world's champion 'Go' player two weeks ago, money.cnn.com argued,"In the ultimate battle of man versus machine, humans are running a close second."
It appears Google has now begun to challenge barriers which even the most optimistic futurists had predicted to be far from modern AI capacities. I'd call their first surreptitious experiment with an AI written and produced a stunning example of how simultaneously discomforting and entertaining the current abilities of a computer to model and understand and represent human feelings and motivations.
