    :mad: Save your money, TOTALLY NOT WORTH IT!
    I will never see another Hollywood movie in the theatres EVER! :mad:

    I was so let down by this movie, I could write a whole book about it.
    I was expecting more, WAY MORE!
    Typical RUSHED HOLLYWOOD B.S. Movie, with a Happy Ending.
    I could of wrote and produced this movie way better!

    I was expecting real slow development of the psychologic suspense and toture, Exploring the darkest of corners....., but NO!

    BURN HOLLYWOOD BURN !!!
    BURN DOWN TINSLE TOWN !
    BURN IT DOWN TO THE GROUND !
    BURN HOLLYWOOD BURN !!!

    AH AH AHHHHHH! ( in the tone of Sam Kinison) :mad:

    Hmmmmm.......I don't normally watch movies, but I saw the newest Batman movie on a recent flight and though it was quite good. Maybe Hollywood is capable of more.

    On the other hand, I saw Wedding Crashers on the same flight, so things do balance themselves out quality-wise. :p

    I'm glad you've seen the light. I stopped giving my money to hollywood years ago. If a movie is worth seeing my friends will recommend and I'll rent. As far as I'm concerned the only good movie to come out in 2005 was Sin City.

    Very disapointed to hear that.
    I heard Quentin Tarintino was involved in teh project and frankly that gave me some hope.

    Were the disapointments 'cause it disapointed as a psychological drama- or cause the adverts made it appear one way and played out another?
    Will look for more details on why to avoid the film !

    I think Hostel qualifies as an indie film 'cause it wasn't backed by a Hollywood studio.

    Gee, I'm a big QT fan and was looking forward to seeing Hostel. The trailer looked really scary and said it's based on a real event. Maybe I'll wait for a few more reviews. I was going to see it today but chose Bloodrayne instead. It stunk to the heavens! I guess there's nothing good worth seeing right now.

    Im an Indie snob

    I dont see Hollywood movies, unless I truely believe that they might be worth it. But this movie is the last straw, never again.

    Sin City was pretty good, not great. I was truely impressed that it captured what it is truely like when you are reading a comic book.

    Things to remember about movies:

    1. The latter half of August, the week of and after Labor Day, and pretty much the entire month of January are dumping grounds for crap movies that wouldn't make ANY kind of money at any other time of the year. Don't go see ANY movie that's released during those timeframes (e.g., Alone in the Dark, widely regarded as last year's worst movie, was released the first week of January).

    2. Eli Roth's first movie was the wretched Cabin Fever, which got a lot of hype for being "the scariest movie ever" but which actually was just really, really bad (aside from some decent nudity by Cerina Vincent, who ALSO got nude in Not Another Teen Movie). Eli Roth = bad director (almost as bad as Uwe Boll, whose I'm-sure-it-would-suck-the-chrome-off-a-trailer-hitch Bloodrayne was also released this weekend).

    3. Almost any movie that's released sans pre-screenings for critics is guaranteed to suck. (Although Aeon Flux, released without pre-screenings, only sucked a little bit.) Hostel had no pre-screenings.

    4. Just because Quentin Tarantino "presents" a movie does not mean it will be good, although at least one such movie (Hero) was really, really good. QT has an odd sense of what's good vs. what's not good, and it doesn't really line up with anyone else.

    Yes, which meant it was handicapped from the start. Most movies based on video games suck, although there are rare exceptions.

    Video game movie + Uwe Boll = guaranteed disaster.

    In fact, Uwe Boll also directed Alone in the Dark, last year's worst movie. Looks like he's going to try to set a new standard for suckitude.

    1. Check and noted (THANK YOU! Great Advice)

    2. Cabin Fever (Just when I thought I had forgotten about that stink bomb)

    3. Check and noted (THANK YOU! Great Advice)

    4. True, and he sure has discredited his name with this movie for sure.

    Sadly, Uwe Boll has five, count them, FIVE movies coming out in the next couple of years and they are ALL based on video games:

    In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (2006) (post-production)
    Far Cry (2006) (announced)
    Postal (2007) (announced)
    Hunter: The Reckoning (2007) (pre-production)
    Fear Effect (2008) (announced)

    I guarantee you that at least 3 of these 5 will be released during the "dumping zones" that I mentioned above: late August, the week of Labor Day, and January.

    It was an indie flick... w/QT's name on it to grease the marketing and distribution wheels.

    "Indie" is not a synonym for "good."

    And, what, if I might ask, made you think "Hostel" would be anything more than an exploitative, gore flick?

    I saw it and I liked it because i actually felt compasion for the characters (Japanese woman:eek:), i thought it was worth the watch and I relaly enjoyed it, Saw 2 was better though, lots of twists.

    Why pay to see a money about scary hostels?

    When for about the same price you can stay in actual hostel and actually get scared?
