The Meanest Thing Ever Written About a Movie
April 5th, 2012

“It’s huge, oversized, Bay-esque extravagenza but without the heart and charm of Bay.”

Oh no.

Before you click the link, guess which upcoming movie is being appraised. Got it?

    When “The Kingdom” came out I thought he could have the stuff to be the new Michael Mann, so now he’s not even the new Michael Bay. At least now there’s no chance of him becoming the next Michael Apted & releasing sequels for the next five decades.

    Can’t wait for the Christopher Nolan adaptation of “Jenga.”

    How come Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and Battling Tops are still in development hell?

    Well, “Candy Land” is finally out of the gate. I’m not joking–they have Adam Sandler attached. I am not joking.

    Actually, I expect Battleship to be brilliant on the grounds that it sounds so stupid that nobody would have dared make it unless they had a _great_ idea.

    I also expect to be proven wrong.

    I was praying that it was not “Lockout.”

    Steve Sailer,

    They already made Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots. I think they also made Operation, but I’m not totally sure about that one. With Mitt Romney as our potential next President, you know someone is working on a script for Monopoly…

    What about Hungry, Hungry Hippos?

    You cannot tell me that based on the title alone that project couldn’t score a production budget north of $100 mil

    Is MB’s Operation able to be sold without an FTC or AMA disclaimer?
