To readdress some of the previously mentioned, unmentionables:
- "Battlefield Earth": friend and I saw this because we [b]knew[/i] it was going to suck. We were not disappointed.
- "Clockwork Orange": I know everyone thought he was a genius but Kubrik leaves me cold.
- "Lost In Translation": whatever. I'm just glad I didn't care.
- "The Postman": O, my. Saw it on a Christmas night at the 10PM showing because my bro-in-law insisted. O, my. 2 and 1/2 hours later, I'm feeling poleaxed by the sheer awful, awfulness of this pile of steaming badness, and, THANK GOD, the credits are finally rolling!
- "Amistad": I know, you're supposed
to like it but by the end I was muttering, "Give me
- "Johnny Mnemonic": Keanu Reeves as a guy who's super power is that he can remember stuff. That's a bit of a stretch for him, I think.
- "Bram Stoker's Dracula": Early 90's version. Keanu Reeves again. Everyone else in the cast tried to make him look good by acting badly. Except for Gary Oldman, who cut him no slack and owned every scene he was in.
- "The Matrix Reloaded": Keanu Reeves. This time making love to a supposedly female double of himself while surviving humanity does a lot of Ecstasy and throws a rave underground. Oh, and some pretentious French fart generates a computer virus that gives spontaneous orgasms to a woman eating pie.
- "The Matrix Revolutions": Keanu Reeves provides incontrovertible proof that the first one being good was a fluke. "Yay! The war is over!"
I say, "Yawn, the series is over."
I know, it hasn't been released yet. But guess who stars in it. Go on, you'll never guess...
