Imagine That

Awful. Just Awful.

The only reason I finished watching this movie is because I was stuck in a seat for 9 hours on an international flight and had no other option than to stare at the map (which I did periodically anyway). A clichéd story that could be adequately described in about 20 second, stereotyped characters, jokes that aren't funny make this one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time. Eddie Murphy - what happened to you? Even your flops of the 80's were leagues above this atrocity.

Wow, more than last crusade? That is many people's favorite - though they go in order for me.

The Happening Review comment

I think Shamalyn needs to stop writing scripts and do 2 things. Only create story ideas, but let a master script writer write the dialog and true gut of the story. 2) Direct movies in which he had no relationship with prior. I think in that capacity, he could do well. Otherwise, he will never come close to his first three films (if you liked these).

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Review comment

My problem was the shitty CGI. I mean swinging monkeys....and a squirrel at the beginning which is completely CGI. Are you telling me the monkeys were necessary and that they couldn't get a squirrel to come out of a hole - or create a realistic animatronic?

You would like 300.

Fahrenheit 9/11 Review comment

Propaganda? Perhaps, but Mr. Moore's stunts also dramatize the hypocrisy and willful ignorance that lead us into war.
