I saw a lot of movies in 2013. I didn’t see all the movies, but I did see probably more than my fair share. I’ve already been through the films I was looking forward to, now let’s look at the films I liked least.
If you’d asked me a few hours ago what I expected to write here I probably would have said something like “Well, After Earth looks like it might be cool but M. Night Shyamalan directed it so I’m worried it’s going to suck.”
To be fair, M. Night Shyamalan’s track record of late isn’t exactly stellar. Signs and Unbreakable were middling. Lady in the Water and The Village were terrible. The Last Airbender was atrocious. It seems that every subsequent film has gotten worse and worse. My fears were unfounded though because I thought that the movie would be bad because he’d throw in some ridiculous twist that would make me groan at having to sit through the movie to get to it. Turns out it’s bad just because it’s just a pretty straightforward bad movie.
Trailer #2 for After Earth is better than the last trailer for After Earth.
I dunno, this might look spectacular but sicne I am aware that M. Night Shyamalan directed leaves me worried that it might suck.
