    It is sooooooo pathetic. Once again a single guy working for the system "learns the truth" and goes against the entire "system" and wipes it out. Along the way he finds his long-lost love and saves her 500 fucking times from the baddies. Ugh. Same plot you've seen 100 times before.

    I've seen a couple of trailers. Reminded me of Tron. Then I found out that the director or some bigwig was involved in Tron. Tuurrrible.

    Another one that is going to suck is After Earth. Will Smith and his son are the stars. M. Knight Shyamalan directs. I'm actually a big fan of M. but Will Smith has the same rep as Cruise does now for hack movies and being kind of wacky IRL. Plus giving his crappy son a starring role. Recipe for disaster.

    and M hasn't written a good story since his first. each movie has been worse and lamer than his previous.

    I agree but I have still enjoyed all of them (I haven't seen Last Airbender). I wouldn't go so far to call any of them lame although the ticket buying public disagrees.

    Sad but true about M shamalamdingdong. His 1st movie was the best and they just got worse and worse. The candle that burns twice as brightly burns half as long.

    he keeps trying to regain that special twist ending that (I'm convinced) he accidentally achieved with Sixth Sense. his audiences are expecting a repeat performance from him, but since (I believe) the first time was an accident, he just doesn't deliver and his results are weak.
