If you’re going to conjure up a piece of crap film, at least have some dignity and use some common courtesy and release it straight to DVD. Most of the movies released during the first couple months of this year just seem to be some watered down, poorly written, diarrhea productions. Now, I am not talking about movies that are intentionally made poorly like “Grind House” films like Plant Terror, Death Proof, and Hobo With a Shotgun. No, I am talking about films like Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Jack and Jill, the thousand and one remakes of The Three Musketeers, the Johnny English francise, the Madea movies….all of them.
All of them were made to make a quick buck. I know a lot of people in the industry are just in it for the green, but please, for the sake of humanity, make something worth while. Do you want your dying memory to be the remake of “Footloose?” God help that poor soul that discovers “A Thousand Words,” why Eddie Murphy? WHY?!?!? Films that are thought provoking and meaningful is what writers, directors, actors, and production companies should aspire to.
(Sorry for the D&D vocabulary at the beginning, also a horrible movie)
