The latest potential example is I Am Legend. I was pretty jazzed about seeing it, as it seems like one of those tour de force performance films that has the potential to be pretty unique. You know -- it features one pretty good actor all by himself for long stretches, a la Tom Hanks in Cast Away.
But then a friend told me that it really doesn't live up to the hype, and that it is, in fact, a bit if a letdown. Well. That really bugs me. Because I want to really love it, but I know now that I probably won't.
