Strike Out

So the TV and Film writers of Hollywood have decided to go on strike.

What does this mean for we, the consumers?

Not a lot.

In fact, this may be a good thing. Perhaps, with all the pretendous (Homestar Copyright 07) writers who've laid waste to what was once great filmage taking a short nap, there could be a gem or two slipping by into the laps of producers.

Maybe we'll actually get a good movie out of this whole event, instead of the torture-porn orgy we've received over the last few weeks.

Allow me to rip on some movies.

"Saw IV" might be one of the worst ideas in a long, sad line of bad ideas for movies. I hate--and I use the word with full meaning--this sudden surge of violent, anti-plot movies that has risen over the last few years.

How many times can I watch someone listen to that stupid voice say, "You have a choice. Die because of the poison gas/pointless deathtrap/high cholesterol, or murder this family member/stranger/child/care bear"?

And the guy is dead, or so we are lead to beleive. How did he manage to kidnap people and set up this elaborate death trap?

You know what? I DON'T CARE!

Why is this the number 1 movie in America? Because people are stupid.

I'm not saying ya'll are, because just by reading this blog you've gained 45 IQ points. I'm saying everyone else is stupid.

Anyway, let's move on.

"I Am Legend" appears to be, with all evidence supporting, a remake of "The Last Man on Earth."

I'll make a prediction here: It's not gonna be as good as the original.

"P2." I'm not even gonna dignify this movie with a response. It's just the worst concept of a movie anyone could write.

In fact, looking at the lineup for the next few weeks, I'm depressed that I've chosen a career in support of these people. I could have been a farmer. At least then I'd get paid good money and be expected to produce shit.

Anyway, I'll be coming at ya'll soon with a review, so get ready. It's gonna be bad.

Like always.

Watch carefully.
