Youd think Lucas would have gotten the clue but apparently not.

    While i havent seen the new Star Trek, i dont disagree with the rest of your post. If i could erase 2 parts of my mind, it would be my memories of the newest Indiana Jones and The Scorpian King. And this is from a guy who used to have to watch Greys Anatomy.
    I dunno. I just don't think it's that awful. It's definitely getting graded on a curve, though.

    I suppose one cant argue taste. At least, so long as your talking about the Revenge movie. If your talking about the Jones/King movies...

    One's appreciation of Midnight in Paris is greatly heightened if they're at least somewhat familiar with the Lost Generation/Jazz Age, especially the writers. That's my chief hesitation in recommending it to people. It also has a very particular sensibility and theme that's not for everyone, as least as I perceive it (the movie does lend itself to multiple interpretations, however). Hannah and Her Sisters and Crimes and Misdemeanors by contrast have more universal themes and don't count on your knowing what Hemingway was like or who Gertrude Stein was.

    Haven't seen Vicky Cristina Barcelona, actually.

    LOL. I practically threw rocks at the screen when I saw Crystal Skull. South Park's interpretation of it was quite apt, imo.

    Didn't see The Scorpion King. Because I'm not an idiot.

    I distinctly recall Crystal Skull. I had just gotten in contact with some friends i hadnt seen in months and years. After the movie we all just sat there looking back and forth between each other speechless. Then i just started repeatedly talking about "what **** did i just see". Flabbergasted i just kept talking about it as we walked out. Someone at the theater told me to stop talking, at which point i said something to the effect of: "Or WHAT, i wont get the privilege of watching similar **** in the future?!?!".

    And thats the exact reason why i saw King. Or thats the only conclusion i have for letting my eyes look upon that movie. Which is not to say i dont have excuses for seeing it, for those are legion. But i watched it...and i should have ran into traffic instead. Thus, i am an idiot for not making the better choice of leaping in front of a semi.

    Speaking of works of great cinematic quality, here's the latest from the people who brought you Sharktopus:

    It stars Tara Reid. Because of course it does.

    The only thing that makes The Scorpion King remotely watchable is Kelly Hu.

    I totally have a thing for Kelly hu. Anyway. I spoke too soon in regards to greatest movie scenes. This is definitely number one (I can't believe I watched the whole movie)

    It's weird though that I really liked midnight in Paris even though most of woody Allen's movies don't do anything for me. Anyhoo, back to the greatest scene evaaaaa.

    It was on TV last weekend. We left it on (it was the end of the movie thankfully) because the first thing we saw was a guy lighting his swords on fire in the middle of a fight for no reason whatsoever. I read an article not long after about how Dwayne Johnson is a good actor. It was a strange week.
