| this isn't even worth it for me to drive to the local theater for the matinee. $6.25 + the prices of gas to get there = DVD. |
Rent it. Don't give in to the studios. This film is 100% pure junk. It's not scary, it's not exciting, it's not entertaining. It is really loud, really dumb and really piss poor and the less money it makes, the more the studios may realize that audiences may not be as dumb as they think.
As for the whole "if you're 12 you'll like it" argument, what about films like The Adventures of Robin Hood
, Star Wars
or Raiders of the Lost Ark
? They never talked down to there audience and that's why they are such beloved classics. Kids enjoy them as much as adults do. They are genuine crowd pleasers. I'm not saying every film has to be as good as those classics, but you'd think with everything being released nowadays there might be one or two. But no, all we seem to get now is this video game inspired crap designed for every teen with an attention span of 2 minutes or less. I expect better than this crap. I will not be pandered to.
Thankfully my viewing was free and only one other person was there. We could yell at the screen and laugh at this movie as much as possible. Paying money and then having to watch it siliently with a crowd must make this movie even more intolerable.
