Top 10 Reasons Not To Watch Current Hollywood Movies

10. Too many movies based on an overuse of green screens.

9. No creativity, it has all been done before. Besides, I’m not into comic books, I’ve grown up.

8. Some stuff is so weird, you wonder what drugs they were on. What’s up with Johnny Depp’s Lokai-like face- Star Trek, 1969?

7. How bad can it be when Hollywood experts are calling “Pacific Rim” a potential blockbuster? It has all the characteristics of Godzilla Versus The Smog Monster.

6. Can we get some real actors, please (other than Depp, who got through it somehow)

5. Morals? What morals?

4. Politically correct. “The Jerk” (1979) was a funny movie and classic, today “they” would be terrified to release such a picture.

3. I can watch over 70% of every Doctor Who episode…the classic ones with comic genius Tom Baker are still so much fun after the third or fourth viewing. You can’t say that about much of anything made in the past year (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was the last decent movie I have seen)

2. The Hobbit- Desolation of Smaug- isn’t out yet

1. Life is so much more interesting than this current crop of epic fails. Maybe if Hollywood produced more stuff like “I am Gabriel,” “End of the Spear,” and “The Hobbit,” we’d have something worth going to see.

    LOL. I own End of Spear. Love that movie so much! Adventure boy and I plan to see Pacific Rim because I plan to review it before the end of next week. I know what you mean though. Kid movies are a joke now. Even Adventure boy doesn’t want to see them!

    • End of the Spear is one of my favorites. Of course, I like jungles, unless they involve too much filing or too much asphalt (although I’m not crazy about the heat). I like Jungle girls- women- too. I do hope you and Adventure boy can have an adventure this summer- adventures (without crazy people) are a whole lot more fun than summer movies.
