Surrogates Needs a Surrogate. Smart Original Not Fit To Be Seen in Public.

February 24, 2010

Family approved for ages 10 and up I can’t say that I had high expectation for Surrogates, but I did have expectations and it damn sure didn’t meet them.  How do you cast Bruce Willis as a futuristic cop and not let him do any futuristic cop sh–?  There were what…maybe two action sequences in […]

A Flat Copy of an Original? Yup, That’s AVATAR!

December 16, 2009

Is it just me or have we seen this movie before? And before that? I could go on, but you get the point.  James Cameron’s Avatar seems like just another we-are-bad but a-few-of-us-are-still-good-and-will-save-you-because-you-can’t/won’t-save-yourselves,  war-bashing, anti-military, misguided-Americans, overly-preachy wannabe blockbuster and who isn’t tired of that? The only new thing about Avatar is that now, instead […]
