I've watched 3 bad movies recently:
1) Lady in the Water: This movie proves, yet again, that M. Night Shyamalan needs someone to stand behind him while he is on his auteur chariot and whisper "All fame is fleeting. All fame is fleeting." What the hell M. Night? What the fucking hell? Watch Unbreakable and get back to your core, dude.
2) Black Dahlia: The same for Brian De Palma. Just because you can make a stylish movie, doesn't mean you should try to do it with a convoluted script and some very bad acting. Poor De Palma. Scarface beckons you.
3) Superman Returns: Paying homage to Christopher Reeve and Marlon Brando is one thing, totally ripping the poor dead guys off is another. The only redeeming thing about this movie is Kevin Spacey's imitation of Gene Hackman with none of the humor that Hackman brought to the role. He was positively menacing, like Jack Nicholson was menacing as the Joker in Batman. Postmodern, indeed this film sort-of was. Too bad the Lois Lane actress didn't get it and put on a spoof of Margot Kidder. Too bad the directors really didn't get it either.
