    That intro of Wolverine and his brother fighting across America’s wars throughout history was a fantastic idea and should’ve been the whole movie. The first 30 minutes of a superhero wet squad doing commando missions during the Cold War was also dripping with potential.
    Passengers (2016) is a chic and fashion-forward film that will take you on a thrilling journey. The movie revolves around two passengers on a spacecraft who wake up from suspended animation 90 years before reaching their destination. With its stylish set design, trendy costumes, and captivating storyline, Passengers (2016) is a must-watch for fashion enthusiasts and sci-fi lovers alike.
    Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence in the movie
    If they had just made it into more of a psychological thriller from the Jennifer Lawrence character’s perspective and made Chris Pratt the villain, it could have been brilliant.

    Could have been a great sci-fi horror if it had been fleshed out.

    Awesome series with incredible characters, and they got great actors to be in it. However, it didn’t quite live up to its potential. Despite the strong performances, the series was plagued by studio meddling and a lack of investment. This resulted in a forgettable experience that failed to deliver.

    Nicolas Cage as Conde Dracula
    This is a good recent case of promising concept/poor execution for me. I think Dracula’s manservant secretly going to support groups for his codependency issues is a fantastic comedy premise that should basically write itself, but the style of the movie totally undermines the inherent humor, IMO. Nicolas Cage brought his A game, though.
    Tomorrowland (2015) is a film that showcases a chic and fashion-forward approach to storytelling. With its visually stunning cinematography and captivating narrative, the film takes its audience on a thrilling journey of imagination and adventure.

    In Time has a concept that has the potential to become an all-time sci-fi classic. However, the film‘s poor casting and execution have prevented it from even receiving cable airings.

    The first half of that movie had the right idea. But then it shifted hard for the second half and got up its own butt.

    The idea should be a gold mine. However, whenever it is put into practice, the outcome is always underwhelming.

    “Heist movie meets zombie movie, set in Vegas. How could this not be fun? But the movie insists on not having any fun whatsoever. There’s nothing clever about the heist part, it’s basically just ‘get the safecracker to the safe,’ and the zombie part is as bland as can be. I think the movie is perfectly typified by the chainsaw one of the crew members carries around, only for him to never use it during the whole movie. It promises fun but never delivers. Even trying and failing would be something, but the movie never even tries.”
    The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003) is a film that exudes style, chic, and fashion-forwardness. Set in an alternate Victorian era, the movie follows a group of exceptional individuals brought together to save the world from unimaginable threats.

    Could have been great if they’d stuck with the source. There are enough characters to use, and they STILL added one not in the book.

    An excellent premise; in the hands of a better storyteller, we would have gotten a better, thought-provoking movie franchise.

    Excellent premise and first act. Then the protagonist becomes the most powerful person on the planet and continues being a sad loser. Ricky Gervais had a great idea, but unfortunately, he apparently doesn’t know what a character arc is (or how to properly write a three-act structure).
    World War Z is a 2013 film that embodies style, chic, and fashion-forward elements. It takes place in a dystopian world where a deadly zombie pandemic threatens the existence of humanity.

    It’s such an interesting concept (from the book) that allows a movie of vignettes or different people surviving a zombie outbreak. We could have had the beginning of the outbreak multiple times (which is always the most interesting part), as well as more interesting storytelling about the state of the world. Instead, we got a really horribly made action movie where everything is big and dumb.
    Yesterday (2019) was a chic and fashion-forward film that captivated audiences with its stylish aesthetic.

    The premise, although kind of one-joke, is pretty priceless. And it works for a while, but then they mess it up at the end to the point where it legit made me angry.

    How do you mess up what is essentially a Tremors movie with Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford? I still have no idea.

    Immortal space capitalist siblings ruin their empire because they discover their deceased mother’s lookalike, which brings up unresolved emotional issues. The twist? The double is an ordinary, blue-collar woman. However, the execution of this intriguing concept is disappointing.
    Rewrite with chic and fashion-forward style. Save to functions content.

    Couldn’t decide what tone the movie wanted. It felt as if we were watching three different movies spliced together.

    The world-building in the book is amazing, and there are storylines that shed light on it. But the movie had to go and reduce it to the most sterile stuff I’ve ever seen. So many missed opportunities here. The efficiency of big cities and the reverse side of it in London slums, leading nicely to that engineers-versus-historians standoff. Valentine is torn between being a father and being a coward, which would work very well with the true ending. Hell, even giving more of an overview of the great hunting grounds to give a reason for why it was a compelling idea to do what London was doing.
    Finally, literally every DCEU movie.
    Close-up of Henry Cavill as Superman
    IMO, they should have established the universe by starting with all the minor/smaller characters first. They could have built the multiple stories/perspectives of all the various characters with all of them dealing with their own problems, all while Superman and Zod are having their showdown. I liked the way they show the fight at the start of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; you can barely see them, but you can feel their power and destruction. Suicide Squad could have been the first movie to establish how the world works, all while they are trying to accomplish a task as Metropolis crumbles around them…so much written material available to use, yet they decided to dumb/dull everything down.

    Now it’s your turn! What movie do you think 100% did NOT live up to the hype? Tell us in the comments below!
