no i'm saving my money to see Armored.


"A newbie guard for an armored truck company is coerced by his veteran coworkers to steal a truck containing $42 million. But a wrinkle in their supposedly foolproof plan divides the group, leading to a potentially deadly resolution."

Is $42 million even alot of money anymore?

Does it take $42 million to retread this crap?


Yes, $42 million is still a lot of money and I would have most of you guys killed if that would mean I would acquire it...tax-free.

Ok fine let me rephrase that-there's nothing else out now that I want to see besides Armored(Well maybe Ninja Assassin, but that looks like it would be better off on DVD)

Even taxed it's still a decent payout. Buys my house and everyone in my families with enough left over to sell my house and buy an island somewhere, with a boat. and a plane. maybe...

That would be like $30-33 million. I'll still take it.

I'm 0 for 10 in viewing this year's worst movies. I won't watch them on DVD either. I am sure that I read all ten reviews when they were first posted. I read every movie review by James when the film is awarded one star, a half-star, or zero stars. On this website, they are great because they're usually quite funny, and there was never really a chance I would see those films anyway; the spoiler alerts don't affect me.

The worst film I saw this year was Wolverine. The prequel genre has officially flamed out. Seeing Hugh Jackman play this same character for a fourth time, without variation and mostly alone on screen, was unnecessary and uninteresting. Nothing in Wolverine's personal history - a Noah worthy 150 years - was surprising or even entertaining. It was the weakest summer action movie May release and the worst prequel I've ever seen.

I hate this stereo-typical BS. Movies in general flame out. A great prequel is right around the corner somewhere...

Rotten Tomatoes has Old Dogs at 6%. SIX PERCENT! lol

Of all the reviewers listed on the page, only one has a positive review, so weirdo named Pete Hammond from Boxoffice Magazine. "An often riotously funny slapstick farce that ought to appeal to moviegoers of all ages." He has 22 comments connected to his review. Second place for comments is 2.


Can we say Quote Whore?

At least I can feel good about the quote of mine that appears on the back of the FORREST GUMP Blu-Ray.

"Passionate and Magical, Forrest Gump is a tonic for the weary of spirit." - James Berardinelli on the Forrest Gump Blu Ray

I don't know James, the quote on the Forrest Gump box is kind of cheesy and sounds awfully similar to many a quote whore. Just saying, I would have told them to pick another one, again just saying. Out of curiosity, is that quote about the actual movie or the quality of the Blu Ray viewing experience that is Forrest Gump? :lol:

It's a quote from the opening paragraph of his original review: http://www.reelviews.net/php_review_template.php?identifier=1428

Can I just say how strange it is - though not unwelcome, mind you - that James chose to announce his future father sessions in the turkey topic?

I work in the AV department at my local library so I look at DVD cases often, and this guy is on at least half of them. He wrote for Maxim before Boxoffice Magazine. He's the ultimate quote whore.

I found it strange that nobody mentioned "All About Steve" in the list of "worst movies of 2009 that JB Did Not Include On His Turkey List". That was BAAAAAADDDDD (I think JB was going to review it and then backed off... smart move)
