Blogger Idol Week Six - Movies

Blogger Idol week five.

Movies that should never be made:

  • Anything based on a video game, or computer game (e.g. Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat).  Just don't go there.
  • Sequels of movies based on games (e.g. Resident Evil 2)
  • Battles that pit the evil bad guys from two totally different movie series against one another (Freddie vs. Jason, Alien vs. Predator, etc.)
  • Movies that exist solely to try and prove some rapper/model/singer is a really talented person, honest, multi-talented even.  You're not convincing anyone here.
  • Really crappy movies about hacking/programming that think they're being realistic (e.g. Antitrust, Hackers)
  • Movies with terminal over-reliance on unlikely coincidences (e.g Legally Blonde 2)
  • Sequels (or prequels) of something that was mindless to start with (e.g. Dumb and Dumber-er)
  • Stories with plots a five year old can figure out within five minutes of the start.  Script writers should make use of the readily available ISO standard five year old to test plots before filming.
  • Movies with lousy dialog (e.g. "I love you Flash! But we only have seventeen hours to save the Earth!"), unless the dialog is so bad it's funny.
  • Anything about cats and dogs taking over the world.  Such movies are worthy of the term "sucktacular".
  • Battlefield Earth.
