So I saw Superman today (movies tend to start later in the UK). As usual, there were plenty of trailers beforehand. And I'm starting to wonder about what exactly is going on in Hollywood. What's with all the crappy movies? The trailers started off with Snakes on a Plane (half the audience were in stitches at the crappyness of this movie- until now I thought this movie was just an internet rumour), and things didn't get much better after that. There was one with some tap-dancing CG penguin, and then a few entirely forgettable movies (I've forgotten what they were), and a Miami Vice remake, which looked like an entirely unoriginal action movie apart from the name. Even movies which should, by all reasoning, have been amazing blockbusters when you consider who made them, were universally disappointing. I am not enthusiastic about Cars (you can do better, Pixar!) and as for The Lady in Water or whatever it's called, I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt because I'd follow M. Night Shyamalan off a cliff, but... I am a bit concerned about it. What's the deal?
