Can someone please explain to me how Beverly Hills Chihuahua is the number one movie in America for the second week in a row? How is this possible? Or, I should say, how does this crap keep happening? I swear at the feet of Loki’s gym teacher that everyone in this stupid country has it in for decent films. I’m not entirely sure how the bimbos and rednecks can manage to keep going to see crap like this and Twilight, while simultaneously voting gems like Eagle Eye off the island?
Some of the best of the big budget movies of the last decade were panned by critics for no apparent reason, I think Eagle Eye is just the newest in a long line. The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise where every film was ripped to shreds, only to become the blue eyed child once the next sequel was released. Tim Burton’s re-adaption of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory which was torn apart by fans of a shitty former adaption on the grounds that they’d seen the Gene Wilder version first. And, of course, the fun and very fitting Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull that has more fanboys bitching than Wesley Crusher.
I don’t get it. Why do people praise idiocy and utter tardation? Why do people ash can perfectly good, engaging and fun films in favor of pure crap? Why do we need 800 Highschool Musical movies? Someone, please, help me out here. :S
