    Saw some trailers at the theater the other day.

    Firstly, this Joseph Gordon Leavitt vehicle looks so bad, I thought it was a joke.

    I love when movies make up worlds that don't exist. Like in those break dance movies, there's always an established world of competitive street break dancing. In this, it's the fast paced world of bike messaging.

    Getting chased by the cops, and avoiding them on a bike. Awesome.

    YOU SEE HIM AVOID THAT COP WITH THE WHEELY FLIP!!!!1!


    This looked equally bad.

    It was really hard to hear over the sound of 75 vaginas collectively moistening. I couldn't be happier that that dude from Star Trek is going bald already.

    There is not enough room on this whole board to complement that thread title.

    That bike movie, just like the break dancing movies you mentioned, are aimed at kids and teenagers. If you're over the age of 15 you're not supposed to like it. When I was a kid I loved the movies Rad, Gleaming The Cube, and a ton of other junk. There's no accounting for the taste of kids. The other is a cheese fest romance flick, so that's obviously not marketed to the wackbag crowd, either.

    Here's a better challenge. How about we look for movies that on paper we probably should like, but still look awful.

    Real Steel and I think that's enough said. I've been seeing this trailer for what feels like a year. Kate from Lost, "You got nothing left". Oh Really you cliche ridden piece of shit!!!

    It sounds like it could be a simple fun action movie to rake in the bucks. Some movies shouldn't be taken too seriously.

    Though that trailer is fucking atrocious. "Oh, it's a zombie movie? Wait, it's not a zombie movie? What's going on?"

    Speaking of the Seth Rogan gang any movie with Seth Rogan is also shit. I know some of you like him but hes done nothing good as far as I've seen.

    I'm actually willing to give The Three Musketeers a chance since Christopher Waltz is playing Cardinal Richeliu and Ray Stevenson is one of the Musketeers. I won't be seeing it in 3D though.

    I have to disagree with you about the Killers Elite being awful. But I will agree that Jason Statham has been in some pretty shitty movies. But he has been in some pretty good ones as well.

    Now this I will agree with you on. I still don't understand why Seth Rogan is a movie star.

    Any movie starring Katherine Heigel in it is guaranteed to be awful.

    I love Snatch so not all his movies suck but he seems to be recycling his scripts at this point.

    I can't fathom how hes seen as funny either. All his roles could be played by any other actor and have little to no change, he brings nothing to everything.

    How dare you shame Dolphin Tale. The real life Dolphin plays himself in the movie! It's almost as amazing as that WW2 vet with the hook hands playing himself in The Best Years of Our Lives.

    It's a movie about a gimp dolphin. I guess only animals can be gimps in movies.

    I wonder who got paid, if anyone for the story rights. I guess the aquarium. It's easier to make up a story around the dolphin then to have to get all these Florida hicks to sign off on it.

    I'd also like to see a true life story that isn't at least 75% made up. The script about my family that's in development is the exception, maybe 50% of it is true, but most of it is so ridiculous no one will ever believe it. I'm now developing two sports movies based on true stories, and besides the names and the out comes and a couple trailer moments pulled from real stories, the rest are all made up.

    The other problem with all movies in Hollywood is the WGA rules for writers and the studio execs who lack any confidence. They'll buy a great script, but decide it needs a rewrite or a polish, usually by a friend of theirs. The thing is if you're a writer and you get hired to do this, if you can prove you changed more then 50% of the script you get the bulk of the residuals for decades to come, so boys become girls, whites become blacks, and so on. So what was a decent script with a couple small problems, now is completely rewritten, but the studio has just doubled the money they spent on the script so they just move forward with it, even though it now sucks.

    First thing I do every time I see a movie that's "based on a true story" is research the inaccuracies. Most of the times I get disappointed by how different the movie and real life story are.
