Default The Conjuring

May I be the seemingly first person to say that I hated the movie? That it was a B- at best, for me? I found nothing scary about it, the plot was horrible, the acting was mediocre at best and the special effects were nearly non-existent.

I don't know where all the buzz is coming from about this movie. I wasn't even remotely entertained.
The first time I saw it with my family and they stood up at the end and said, "Well, that sucked."
The second time I watched it was with my girlfriend and another couple and they all said, "That was a waste of $11."

Someone debate this with me.

Haven't seen it yet but the first trailer they released looked super promising because for once they didn't show the monster/murderer whatever. People are by nature scared of the unknown so whenever they show what we're supposed to be afraid of a movie gets instantly less scary for me. After that I decided to not watch any other trailers but I've heard it sucked. As a horror movie maniac I'll get around to watching it fairly soon.

Rotten Tomatoes has nearly a 90% "liked this" rating of users and critics.

I don't understand.
After you get around to watching it, please come back and let me know your thoughts.

It was forgettable, my girlfriend normally scares easily and she wasnt scared at all of this movie. I liked the Warrens though, alot.

The Warrens were good.
On a side note, Breaking Bad is awesome. I've watched all 4 seasons on Netflix in a week and a half.

Yes, let's debate why you didn't like it. I'll start: You have horrible taste in film.

The movie was something around 1 hour and 51 minutes long. I remember thinking, "This movie only has 20 minutes left. SOMETHING has to happen in 20 minutes or this movie will have been an absolute waste of money."

Sure enough, the exorcism happened, but what was scary?

James Wan likes to mostly build suspense in his movies. It's not so much about the outright scares that go down, but the tension he builds. Ending of the movie wasn't scary, but more of a resolution to the plot. Hell, it was so intense I kept expecting more things to happen during the slow parts.
