If hoping that MI:3 flops terribly is wrong, I don't want to be right.

I never saw a Tom Cruise movie that wouldn't have been better if someone other than Tom Cruise was in it, apart maybe from INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE which wasn't really a Tom Cruise movie. I mean, almost anybody other than Tom Cruise. WAR OF THE WORLDS could have been Matthew McConaughey's shot at the A-list. Cruise doing simultaneous 'working class asshole' and 'look at me, love me' was just too much for this viewer's brain to process.

One UK film critic hilariously re-named the Da Vinci Code: "I Know What You Did Last Supper".


//DA VINCI CODE//If this movie is a success, it'll be the perfect chance to sell my screenplay about the guy who discovers an international centuries-long conspiracy hinted at in the teleplays of old "My Mother The Car" episodes.//X-MEN: THE LAST STAND//I'm just waiting to hear Beast sing "Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs" over the end credits.//PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN’S CHEST//To be followed by PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN III: IT'S A SMALL WORLD.//MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 3//Interestingly, the only other case I can think of with a movie adaptation of a TV series becoming so popular is the Naked Gun trilogy.

I'm packin' a bowl for the Al Gore documentary, it's gonna be SWEET.And you can't possibly forget that they's MUTHAFUCKIN' SNAKES ON THE MUTHAFUCKIN' PLANE!

Ken Levine

SNAKES ON THE PLANE will be one of the many movies I target in my next post. Stay tuned.


Just wait untill the sequels and ripoffs come."______ on a ______" --just fill it in for endless ideas.It won't end until every animal has been on every mode of transportation.The final one will be Bees on a Space Shuttle.


I bags the rights for Mongoose on a Bus.


"Just My Luck": The "Seinfeld" episode "The Opposite" for a new generation...only Lindsay Lohan's misery will last thrice as long as Julia Louis-Dreyfus's.
