    The Giver

    Forget that they've changed nearly every detail from the book (most seemingly for no other reason than to change it), this movie was just plain bad. One of the biggest problems was pacing. The whole thing felt rushed. It didn't establish the setting before jumping into the main plot point. There's no time to build a connection to the characters or fully understand the community.
