    I thought it was alright, Electra too but the timing was poor, there was a glut of that kind of movie, the same thing happened with zombi films.

    As soon as I read that, I immediately thought of this. Oh how I wasted my teenage years smoking pot and watching awful movies.

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    It seems like a choice fans are going to hate, and I also happen to think it's a shitty one. Ben Affleck has about the range of Tom Cruise. Just like every movie with Tom Cruise is Tom Cruise IN SPACE or Tom Cruise as a PIRATE NAZI, so is a Ben Affleck movie.

    He's just.... a generic vaguely angry Red Sox fan. In every film. I honestly think Orlando Bloom would have been a better choice.... his fops all seem different.
    I don't know, I think you're kind of dismissing Tom Cruise by comparing him to Affleck as an actor. I think Cruise is a fantastic actor who people suddenly decided not to like because of his weird-ass personal life. I actually think he'd make a decent Batman if he were a little less good looking.

    I was not prepared for a choice quite this awful.

    I didn't know who Zack Snyder was. I looked it up. He sucks.
