Harrison Ford in K-19: The WidowmakerK-19: THE WIDOWMAKER

Most movie trailers make the film in question look much better than it actually is; the previews for K-19: The Widowmaker don’t give any indication how good it actually is.

The Road to PerditionTHE ROAD TO PERDITION

Viewing The Road to Perdition, I didn’t much care how the plot worked itself out or how the characters interacted; I just wanted to watch the rain land on Tom Hanks’ and Paul Newman’s fedoras.
