Some of the movies listed here might have actually been worse but I'll add another one: "Kung Pow, enter the fist."

GTFO. That movie is awesome. Then again I like dark humor. The porno password scene or the medieval times scenes alone make that movie great.

Blues Brothers 2000 - Sequel to an old R rated movie. What were they thinking when they centered this around an annoying little kid. This could have been a fun movie if not for the kid who ruined every scene he was in. The musical numbers with many of the all time blues greats were phenomenal. But they tried to target family audiences and put the kid in. (also added a unnecessary/dumb scene for kids where Ackroyd covered his face with shaving cream and acted rabid) Sorry but little kids aren't the target demo for old blues musicians. Too bad, this could have been a good movie, the closing ensemble musical numbers are phenomenal.

Predators - Starring a badass special forces played by.... Adrian Brody????? Could they have gotten a wimpier / dorkier lead trying to play a badass. He had the same type of role and failed miserably in the King Kong remake with Jack Black & Naomi Watts.

Totally agree with both of those, especially Predators. What a waste.

He's usually the same character too, some borderline mentally handicapped clueless goof.

The entire series is fueled by Focker/****er jokes. It's not that I am offended by hearing that word. Having been in the military and with plenty years of hearing talk in the locker room, I've used it more than I probably heard it. It just seemed so cheap of a way to go for humor.

Oh I get it, Focker sounds like ****er. The joke was ruined after they used it a second time in the same scene.

How about when they started making sequels to all the old disney animated classics?

He is still a good actor...
And there are still some good performances here and there...
Such as Limitless and Silver Linings Playbook...
But compared to the performances earlier in his career...
There was a big difference.

Still...
I am amazed that he was able to give so many great performances...
For so long.
Usually...
For method actors...
Because they are so immersed in the roles they take...
It takes great emotional...
And sometimes even physical...
Tolls on them.
While they do give great performances...
They also get burn out...
And after a while...
They really cannot perform anymore.
For example...
Rod Steiger was great in the 50s and 60s...
But from the 70s onward...
While he was still a good actor...
It was mainly due to his experience as a veteran actor...
And he was never able to give an excellent performance again.

Some method actors compensate...
By taking fewer jobs over the years...
So that they do not overexert themselves...
And they can keep their performances fresh.
A great example would be Daniel Day-Lewis...
And he only takes a project every couple of years.

De Niro...
On the other hand...
Works very frequently...
And he takes multiple projects per year.
For him to give great performances...
Sometimes multiple times in a year...
For over 30 years...
Is really quite amazing.
He was an anomaly...
And although I think he is burned out...
He left many great performances.

I'd like to personally thank you for changing how I read his posts. Instead of Stevie from Malcolm in the Middle, I will now hear Christopher Walken.

I agree with whomever said Boondock Saints 2. Extremely unnecessary and just not a good movie. Was Julie Benz trying to be Kyra Sedgwick?

Lost In Space from the late 90s was awful. Started out good but the second half of that movie deflated it.

And to Cloned;

Star Trek: Nemesis-I absolutely HATE HATE HATE this movie. Fifteen years of loyalty to a franchise and they end it with this slap to the face? The writer and director had no idea what they were doing, the plot was awful, and the Data "sacrifice" was poorly done.

Also

Star Trek: Insurrrection-The Riker joystick scene is the dumbest moment in Star Trek since the "Riker gets bit by a worm and is seeing his life flash before his eyes" end of season two highlight montage.

Funny thing is that Logan is now actually back to writing good movies again.

I don't really like most Sandler movies, but he hasn't really played a character like that in over ten years.
