BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
I haven't seen all of these - thank goodness - but of the ones I have seen, I can't disagree. Okay, I have a spot in my heart for Star Wars, so I'd not have picked that, as clumsy as parts of it were. I'd probably add WAR OF THE WORLDS to this, mostly because of the acting, or lack of it.
One I confess to enjoying is The Core, maybe because it's so preposterous.
I'm sorry he wouldn't include made-for-TV dreck on his list. Just for camp value alone, "Dinocroc" and "Mansquito" would have made the list.
OK, Bill, what might the other be?AEON FLUX is pretty dire, all right. Haven't sat through any of the others, except when I was dragged to the fifth STAR WARS film, I fell asleep...which has only happed twice in a theater, the other time recently with MOON. About two minutes of the Transformers film was more than enough.
To tell the truth, I've seen three. I didn't like the Star Wars episode, but I thought League was kind of fun.
What I saw of the LEAGUE was certainly dumbed down from the comic, but it wasn't as boring as most of Scalzi's list. You should note the proviso he made, that these are the worst big-budget/financially more or less successful sf films...MOON thus drops out of consideration...
(Cable is good for sampling bits and pieces of things you never need to see in toto.)
After I saw Episode 1 (sic) of STAR WARS I vowed "never again" and I've kept to that. George Lucas couldn't pay me enough money to sit through another one.Jeff
