I'm usually the type who finds "so bad it's good" stuff fantastic. I mean I bought the trainwreck that was Duke Nukem Forever based on that fact alone (and regretted it), I also have the infamous Sonic 06 coming in the mail as we speak.

That being said, Revelations was one of the few bad movies that managed to actually frustrate me. Even if you remove all the problems it has from claiming to be about "Silent Hill" and even if you ignore all the dumb retcons of the first movie's plot line..It's just a bad horror movie, not in the fun Evil Dead or Plan 9 from Outerspace way, but just plain awful.

I will say though, the part where

Heather hugs Alessa to death
did kind of make me laugh my ass off. I completely forgot about it while watching the film a second time, so it really caught me off gaurd and made me crack up..Still though, I can't say I really enjoyed much of the rest of the movie at all..

Yeah, It was kinda of embarrassing. I mean, I don't think I can understand how a movie with great people like Carrie-Anne Moss, Malcolm McDowell, Sean Bean and Kit Harrington could be so awful (Can't say much about Adelaide Clemens, since I'm not really familiar with her).

How do you misuse Malcolm McDowell?

Seriously, the man has been playing Mick Travis (or Alex DeLarge, if you will) for almost fifty years. That's literally all he does. Everyone else gets it, so why can't this movie?

It's so bad that I sometimes choose to forget it even exists. It's definitely not SBIG.. It really just made me appreciate the first film even more.

I had high hopes for it, but boy were they crushed after viewing. There are some hilarious scenes merely due to the fact that they're so bad, and dumb. Hollywood is all about quick reboots nowadays, so I hope SH gets the reboot treatment as well (along with Avatar the Last Airbender).

The only way to enjoy this gameplay-less video game. It's Point A to B to C with no side quest or trophies. Super Mario Bros. The Movie had a more diverse plot.

SMB: the Movie was 100 times better than Revelation. So many people say Mario Bros. was bad, but honestly, looking at it as an 80's product of cinema, I think it was pretty damn ambitious. I mean honestly, look at what they had to work with at the time.

The movie is terrible, but you don't need an idiot like Jim "I don't know how to use a mini-map" Sterling to tell you that.

I don't like how it gives people who don't play the game the wrong idea about SH fans, (were not thick!!!! We do have good taste....honestly!!) so I always have to state that I do NOT like the movies, esp #2.

You just don't get how awful it is if you don't play the games.

Someone was flabbergasted when I told them I like Resident Evil games but not the movies as they are an abomination (still not as bad as SHR though).

He just looked at me disbelieving and said "Sooooo you play the games but you don't watch the movies" in a very condescending tone,(he watches the movies but doesn't play the games) I just said to him "you don't get it mate"

This is what I hate the most about it.

SHR makes it's basic cable debut this weekend on the SighFy network. Maybe people will have a good laugh.

Often I have to reiterate when I say I like silent hill, I don't mean the movies. Which then of course, people are more inclined too talk about, because everybody and their mother went to the cinema to see it and didn't you like the part where the triangle man fought the woman?!!?!!!?!!1

I never saw this second film. At first I was very excited to see it but in the end I decided not to, I have heard and read so many terrible things about the movie that I refuse to see it. Do not want to see one of my favorite games to be shattered by the movie.

A couple of years ago, I think in 2011, I began to participate in the official website that MIchael Basset had (the director) at that time he had been confirmed as director and just started work on the project. His official website had for such reason a great participation of Silent Hill fans, among whom I was.

Anyway, I was there for some time trying to follow all the progress that was made and occasionally Michael Basset spoke with us and answered all comments and questions, etc. And I remember that he always remarked that he had played the game, that he knew the game well, that he would respect what Silent Hill means, etc, etc. Anyway, a lot of promises that only were aimed to calm the fans, the story was totally different once the film was released and criticisms were swift in his own page, I think this was the reason which he decided to close his personal page.

I still wonder if I should see the movie, but there is always something or someone who tells me not to.

Here are reasons to watch.

- Train wrecks are compelling in their own way.

- For example Kenji asked, "How do you misuse Malcolm McDowell?" I ask and how do you misuse the other five B+/A- actors?

- The usual horror movie is so bad that the a bad Silent Hill flic is still above average.

Amazing. Some fool watches a masterpiece, doesn't appreciate its greatness. Doesn't even see at all.
Then the supposed fans watch the masterpiece. Same result.
Sigh!

The Movie doesn't even follow the mythology and lore of the Town properly.

If it were a masterpiece I would be compelled to watch it again, I am not, likely never will.

I've literally never heard it called a masterpiece before as it was a massive let down.

It somehow gets worse every time I glance at it.
