Call it a nose dive, fall from grace or whatever. What I'm getting at here is films that start off with a bang and end up, for whatever reason, completely losing their shit at some point. Was watching Danny Boyle's Sunshine last night and it's one of the most disappointing nose dives I've ever seen. It's even more pathetic when you think about how a such a promising film could shift into a last act that is so diametrically opposite in tone to everything that comes before it--completely abandoning intellectual ideas for a series of cheap, slasher riffs (Event Horizon lingers in my memory). But at least it inspired me to start a thread on this subject. Jeepers Creepers is another one that comes to mind. So let's hear it. Which are the films that have ultimately let you down by dropping the ball?
