Who read the script to this piece-of-crap-to-be and thought it would make a good movie? I’ll tell you who: Nobody. I’m pretty? damn sure that even the producer – whom I will reveal later (hint: he’s an a**hole) – wasn’t dumb enough to think that this premise would make a good film. He most likely knew it would be a pile of crap but made it anyway.
If this doesn’t scream out “I’m a piece of crap pretending to be a movie” I don’t know what does
You might argue that this was the summer of superheros since Thor, Captain America, Green Lantern and X-Men: First Class were released. However, although these movies performed fairly well at the box office, with the exception of Green Lantern (it had a budget of $200 Million but only brought in about $116 Million at US box office), I think their success was overshadowed by that of the R-rated comedies.
Most of us believe that spoilers are bad. We believe that if we know who Luke’s father is, Star Wars isn’t as good. If we know Snape killed Dumbledore, Harry Potter is ruined. Or if we know that Bruce Willis’ character was dead the whole time, it takes away from our enjoyment of The Sixth Sense.
A horrible trend in movies today is to release trailers that give away too much. Some give away big twists that are essential to the movie, while others pretty much show you the whole movie in two minutes.
I made a list of some of the most recent and high profile offenders that came to my mind. So if you haven’t seen any of these movies, this is your only warning: SPOILERS.
