The lighting and picture quality have more to do with it, plus the fact that she's half asleep and it's just overall not a good picture. Nobody would look great under those conditions.

That's a factor, but it still made more than double any other film except Titanic. Inflation is a much bigger issue than the 3D ticket prices. It's probably not the highest grossing film ever once...

The main appeal was the visuals, not the plot. Particularly the groundbreaking (at that moment in time) way it used 3D and CGI. Watching it on a TV screen isn't going to deliver that, and the more...

The show he stars in gets around 10 million viewers per episode, which is more than some films. You're making an artificial distinction between TV and Hollywood. The US television industry is...

I saw it in theaters a few months ago. Odd that a British film is released in the UK months after the US.

It was an interesting concept and there were good things about it, but overall it didn't...

And if she's self-employed, it may be her gross income rather than net income. Some farmers have negative net incomes during bad years.

Children of Dune originally ran on TV as a miniseries, following the Dune miniseries, not the film.

It's the second miniseries, but it actually covers material from both the 2nd and 3rd book. ...

One or two big moves can still be good, especially if you do it before the merge and the people you burn aren't on the jury. But the problem is Chase and Sash didn't have restraint. They switched...

It wasn't the worst movie of the year, by far, merely mediocre. It can be entertaining if you aren't expecting too much.



Yes it is, because not all movies have them. In a film like this there...

When people very publicly campaign against it, I think it's fine to expose their hypocrisy. However, as far as I know Travolta doesn't fall into that category. His religion may be against it, but...

This particular cameo was intentionally awkward, because it's a parody of The Muppet Show, which had a guest star in every episode.
