How many films have we seen and forgotten in 10 minutes? The brain has an incredible ability to weed out what we don’t like or what doesn’t work, that for something there’s a limit of things we can hold within those four walls.

This has happened to us in math class at school, during the long days of catechesis and, of course, at work, when there is a new online platform for which you have to take a four-hour course to learn how to to master.

This mechanism also works with movies. When you see a very bad one, it is customary to forget about it. That or remembering her for the rest of our lives, cursing the moment we decided to see her and regretting the 7 (or more) the movie ticket cost us back then.

Disney+ continues to broadcast new releases, such as its STAR channel. If you subscribe to the annual subscription, you will save the equivalent of two months compared to the monthly subscription.

Today we are going to focus on those movies that are so weak that after a few years we can’t remember what the movie was about, we only remember that that actor or actress that we love so much came out and nothing else. What’s called the “oh yeah, Bruce Willis was in that movie, but I had no idea what was going on” effect.

Without further ado, let’s go with the list, handpicked from the worst movies, where only the protagonist is remembered, nothing else. Something we can’t thank our brains enough for. No one loves us and protects us more than him.

7 Movies In Which You Probably Remember The Protagonist, But Not The Story He Tells

Some dates of the cheap subscription with Netflix ads are filtered: this is what we know

Does the synopsis sound good? Well, the truth is, it’s one of the worst adventure movies to be made in decades, starring a Denzel Washington who doesn’t do a bad job, but is buried under a horrible script and execution. worse.

The film is available on Netflix, in case you dare find it hard to watch a movie that has its full weight in one detail at the end of the film. Since it’s your decision, don’t blame us for those two hours of footage.

In the middle of the Victorian era, the English government lives in panic because it does not know how to stop a diabolical plan, the objective of which is to achieve world domination.

If you ask any kid who in the 2000s was old enough to make a glass of milk themselves, they’ll tell you they remember Sean Connery, not much else. This film made history for being the last audiovisual production featuring the most beloved English gentleman of the 20th century.

As an action-adventure film, loaded with special effects, it sucks. As a comic book adaptation, it’s worse. The only thing saved is getting to see Sean Connery play his final role. It’s worth retiring like this.

How to watch Star Wars movies and fix the viewing order

This film is the perfect example of films in which you remember who was coming out, but not what it was about. In Battlefield: Earth, the two protagonists were John Travolta and Forest Whitaker, almost nothing. Unfortunately, it was a total failure.
