First impressions are a killer

I tried rewatching Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events tonight. I got less than five minutes into it and all I could think of was my response from the first time I saw it. So I turned it off.

Edward Gorey meets Tim Burton meets Jim Carrey ... anyone alone I like but together, in this movie ... I don't think so. It seemed too contrived, too calculated and not terribly inspired. Despite having what seemed like a lot of promise.
