Bone The Fish - Most Recent Comments!

Who said you can't coin your own term? What is "Boning the Fish"? It's a moment. A defining moment when you know that your favorite TV Show, Celebrity, Movie Series or Music Group has reached its peak. That instant you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it a climax of sorts. We call it "Boning the fish". From that moment on things will simply never be the same.

My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Movie Series
Let me get this straight: you go from a magical fantasy world to a mundane High School Musical knockoff, and the fans go wild. I don't get it. Is this some kind of inside joke? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on November 14, 2014, 12:26 pm

You know, it should be up to the community and fandom of what's canon and non-canon. Because apparently the people who created this universe. Just can't seem to make up their mind or that they do but they affect a lot of things. -- Submitted By: () on September 30, 2014, 5:14 am

Looney Tunes live-action/animated films - Movie Series
Does anyone remember Looney Tunes anymore? It's kinda scary how shelved Looney Tunes are in this day and age compared to everything else. Only the key characters are around like Bugs Bunny of course. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on September 27, 2014, 1:44 am

Mighty Ducks, The - Movie Series
I was about to say it boned with the second film, then I gave it more thought. The series never boned. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 7:08 pm

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids - Movie Series
The fish was missing bits of its skin for Honey, I Blew Up the Kid. Keri Russell was very beautiful in that flick. Yeah, it boned with the third movie. I can tolerate the second one. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 6:52 pm

Child's Play - Movie Series
I liked number two the most out of all of them. The first film had the right amount of heart jumping moments, but not enough deaths. It just wasn't scary at all. The second one had everything I wanted from a living doll film. It was a lot gorier and had a higher body count number. The third one competed with the first for the most laughs. I remember being afraid of the poster for the third movie in ninety one. The series boned with the fourth film. Chucky did not frighten me anymore because he had stitches all over his face. Chucky did not appear as threatening with all of the stitches. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 6:01 pm

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure - Movie Series
The second film was the "Death" of the series, if you know what I mean. I still liked it, I thought William Sadler was excellent Grim Reaper. It was pretty "rad" to see those evil Bill and Ted robots. I thought so at the time too. I vote "never boned". I can see the fish being gutted as they work on the third film (coming soon). Two is enough, they don't need to ruin the series by adding another one. By now, Bill and Ted have done it all. Well, that is if you count the animated show, live action program and Marvel comic books. What was it with all of the duos in the early 1990s? How many were there? Bill and Ted, Wayne and Garth, Kid N Play, Ren and Stimpy and Beavis and Butthead, those are the ones off the top of my head. -- Submitted By: (tvwatcher7) on September 13, 2014, 3:35 pm

Star Wars - Movie Series
Due to the filming of episode 7, theExtended Universe post Return of the Jedi is no longer considered canon. I understand why they made this decision (to free up the new trilogy from having to conform to the convoluted EU storylines), but it's a shame that the Admiral Thrawn books basically don't exist anymore. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on August 25, 2014, 5:35 pm

Supergirl - Movie Series
This movie was a giant vomitous turd that nearly blinded me,,,,I saw it when it came out on HBO in the eighties,,,,even as children, we realized this movie was BAD. Nothing makes any sense, and the villain/protagonist are too busy fighting over the dorky landscaping guy to pay attention to anything else,,,,this movie managed to somehow be offensive to both male and female audiences, to women for all the stereotyping, to men with all the "girly" stuff,,,,,,Helen Slater looks great in the costume, but that's about it as far as positives go,,,,,, -- Submitted By: (Arkady) on May 30, 2014, 11:19 am

Star Wars - Movie Series
Yes, I fear that episode seven will be a cash cow and little more,,,,but how can they screw it up any worse than Puke-Ass? Puke-Ass only made about three movies his whole life, THX-1138, American Graffiti, and Star Wars,,,,the rest was re-packaged CRAP! And, yes, I agree, quality control for the Expanded Universe crashed early,,,,with Luke almost going over to the dark side, and every new horrible weapon a copy of the Death Star, and the Emperor is re-born,,,,,,puuuuuuukkkkkkkeeeeee! -- Submitted By: (Arkady) on May 30, 2014, 9:57 am

I Am Legend - Movie Series
Not bad,,,,watching Will Smith live in such loneliness that he eventually starts to treat mannequins like friends, even asking one out on a date was good,,,,but still, the ending, when God magically led the woman to some camp where all the human survivors lived in peace in harmony was tacked on and tacky! -- Submitted By: (Arkady) on May 30, 2014, 9:51 am

Star Trek - Movie Series
JJ Abrams makes a Star Trek movie. And the result is "Frat Boys in Space". Honestly, has anyone involved in these Abrams abominations ever even seen an episode of Star Trek? I have the impression Abrams was given a list of Star Trek nomenclature and character names then given carte blanche to make whatever movie he wanted using those. Bears no other relation to anything else in the accepted Star Trek canon. Abrams not only boned the fish but flushed it down the drain. The weakest episode of TOS is magnitudes better than this garbage. -- Submitted By: (jgf) on May 29, 2014, 2:25 pm

Dragonball Evolution - Movie Series
The poster was more than enough for me to be convinced that this was a train wreck and a fine example of what American Hollywood does to source materials from other countries. I saw this beginning to end and nothing was right. This is the best Hollywood can present for a live adaptation of an anime? I mean, they've turned a destructive blast that is the Kamehameha into a spraying mist of blue/purple CGI aura. And to think Hollywood is and was going to try another attempt of making a live-action adaptation of another anime, like Akira. Airbender, they've already destroyed. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on March 19, 2014, 4:29 am

Resident Evil (film) - Movie Series
This movie franchise was all just wrong in more ways than one. Should not have happened, especially given the source material.

Bill Murray is not Garfield. He just wasn't. This movie ultimately killed me as a fan of Garfield. Also, it's weird when Garfield was the only CGI-character in that film. Yet Odie was real. Nothing worked in this film. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on March 19, 2014, 4:21 am

Mortal Kombat - Movie Series
I don't think Annihilation knew what it was aiming for. If it had been based on the arcade sequel, then it could've been good or decent at best. But, the characters in Annihilation were mostly from MK3. Which doesn't make sense to me. There's a reason the sequel is forever on many lists of the worst sequel and worst movie overall in history. It's a very cheesy sequel and you'd have to have a guilty pleasure for finding something to like about it. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on March 19, 2014, 4:19 am

Next Friday was meh. Friday After Next was a whole bunch of "Why?". I mean they've somepoint teased of a Smokey return. He never did cause Tucker was busy doing those horrible Rush Hour films.

Should have just stuck with the first and only, call it good. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on March 19, 2014, 4:15 am

Spider-Man - Movie Series
I disliked the 3rd for obvious reasons I won't state because I'll just be stating everyone's opinions. But, they could've gone a better direction with Venom and the Symbiote/Peter's relationship. I heavily doubt if one were to be absorbed or taken over by a symbiote, it'd make you want to dress dark, comb your hair down, and start dancing shamelessly. There were so many better takes and material to base that relationship off. But they instead went with that for some ridiculous reason. Also, we've known all along Ben's killer was that robber guy in the first film. Entirely un-necessary to pin it on Sandman when he alone has his own reasons already for going after Spider-Man. Just wasteful. -- Submitted By: () on March 19, 2014, 4:11 am

Matrix - Movie Series
The 2nd and 3rd ones should not have been made in the same year. I didn't mind them. But, they could've waited longer instead of pushing through rush jobs. Although the dialogue in the two sequels were giving me a headache. So. Much. Explaining. Cryptic. Knowledge. -- Submitted By: () on March 19, 2014, 4:06 am

Saw - Movie Series
Saw should have stopped at III. It would've made a good trilogy. But, they decided to continue it until it got quite pretentious in itself. I've watched the series up until VI and I haven't mustered up the interest to watch the "Final Chapter". Not because I got queasy, but because it got stupid and literally became a trend of "how can this victim get killed in the most horrendous way possible?" theme. -- Submitted By: () on March 18, 2014, 11:18 pm

Twilight - Movie Series
It seriously was a horrible fanfic of a book that somehow made it into half a dozen movies. That speaks a lot about the movie industry today. I know a lot of movies involving vampires will either keep everything about a vampire intact for the "classic" version. Then there are some who finds some alterations with them with little changes like Underworld and Blade for example. But, the difference here is they made vampires a little more interesting. Twilight completely pussified them. -- Submitted By: () on March 14, 2014, 4:00 pm

Terminator - Movie Series
It was supposed to have ended with T2. James Cameron himself has come out and said that with the two movies, everything was there and nothing needed to be explained. Then Terminator 3 came along because I guess some director had it up his ass and thought it needed to repeat the formula again. Then came Salvation trying to be either a prequel or whatever. I agree, it should've just been left to T2. Those other attempts just fell so out of place. When I first heard Arnold as the T-850 say in T3 after being explained by John Connor about blowing up Cyberdyne. He said "It was only post-poned". I could only think then was "yeah...an excuse to make more money." -- Submitted By: () on March 14, 2014, 3:57 pm

High School Musical - Movie Series
If there's one thing I like about these films, it's that, as far as I know, none of the main stars have become drug addicts or have had any sort of breakdown (and for a live action Disney Channel production, that's saying a lot). -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on March 13, 2014, 12:35 am

Ghostbusters - Movie Series
I'm afraid not, John. Sony didn't even wait until Mr. Ramis had been buried to announce that Ghostbusters III is still happening and Ramis's death won't significantly impact the script they've written.

Batman - Movie Series
I was just thinking about the time I went to see The Dark Knight in IMAX with my dad. I thought the movie was great, but my dad hated it. He thought it was too violent. I was a bit baffled by my that, as it was only a PG-13 movie, so I had no idea what he was talking about. I later found out that dad had literally seen nothing of Batman since the comics he read in the 1950s and the Adam West show. It must have been quite a jarring experience! -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on February 27, 2014, 11:27 am

Highlander - Movie Series
In defense of Highlander 2, the film was beset with budgetary difficulties which stemmed from runaway inflation in Argentina (the filming location) while the movie was being made. Creative control over the movie ended up passing to the bonding company, which did a hasty slap-together job that became the original theatrical version, which director Russell Mulcahy disliked in the extreme (and that's STILL putting it mildly). Mulcahy eventually released a Director's Cut DVD (subtitled "The Renegade Version") which was miles better, in no small part because the BS plotline about Planet Zeist was excised. The Renegade Version DVD also includes a featurette where Mulcahy provides a more detailed explanation for why the theatrical version was such a turkey. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on February 24, 2014, 11:49 pm

Paranormal Activiity - Movie Series
I can't believe people bought into this crap series of movies. I never bought into the hype, because I know they were trying to make a quick buck with using smoke and mirrors to try and scare people. It's like "OH! SOMETHING MOVED!! AHHHHHHH!!!" I mean what the hell is that? And it's ridiculous how it's gone on for 4 going on 5 movies now. It's just a series of things that only surprise you, that's basically it. Hell, they didn't even have to try to be variable with their movie posters. Same title, nothing new brought to the table. Just the same thing with a different number slapped onto it and different people. God, people are gullible. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on January 23, 2014, 10:58 pm

Halloween - Movie Series
I don't agree that Halloween 3 boned it because it was a failed idea (that Carpenter would have a new, different Halloween story with each movie). I don't think 3 is a bad movie anyway, but it's easier to just to ignore it in the scheme of the main story. Halloween 1 is excellent of course, probably the best slasher of all time and one of the only ones that was well regarded by main stream critics; 2 is considered one of the stronger horror sequels of all time as well. 4 was an alright return; but I can remember things going downhill with 5. Anyone remember that 'cult' that appears later and was left unexplained? H20 was also a nice return of Jamie Lee. After that, the Halloween series is a mess and not worth watching. I didn't even bother with the remakes. -- Submitted By: (Scots) on January 21, 2014, 7:03 am

Dr. Seuss movies (live-action) - Movie Series
Here's the thing about Audrey Geisel. Dr. Seuss was married to Helen Marion Palmer Geisel. She encouraged him to be an artist and became his biggest supporter, editing his books and dealing with the publishers. She was the one by his side when he wrote his most famous books. Helen eventually became seriously, chronically ill. Meanwhile, Dr. Seuss began having an affair with a family friend's wife, Audrey Stone Dimond. Helen was devoted to her husband, but he refused to break off the affair. Helen, unable to live without Dr. Seuss, took her own life. Google the suicide letter, it's the most humble and sad thing ever. Dr. Seuss and Audrey spared no time moving in together. They married a year after Helen's death. So this widow that tries to pass herself of as some sort of moral guardian is nothing of the sort. She tells stories about him writing Cat and the Hat or The Grinch as if she was there, when in actuality she wasn't. She's not the real Mr. Seuss as far as I'm concerned. -- Submitted By: () on December 22, 2013, 5:40 pm

Hobbit, The - Movie Series
Robert, The Hobbit was first published in 1937 and was 317 long. Not a short story, never was, never will be, Jackson does go long on running times but the NOVEL was extremely complicated. The Rankin-Bass version was a dumbed down kid's story and never meant to be a definitive adaptation. -- Submitted By: (jmac9909) on November 14, 2013, 7:31 am

Hobbit, The - Movie Series
Jmac9909: I was referring to The Hobbit...NOT the Lord of the Rings sequels. Rankin-Bass managed to successfully make ONE movie out of the Hobbit story. Peter Jackson's movie was over 2 1/2 hours long, and Bilbo didn't even met Smaug yet. I've actually seen the book: "The Hobbit: There and back again" is a short novel, of only 310 pages. I always "crack a book" or "at least Google" before I criticize anything. -- Submitted By: () on November 9, 2013, 9:07 pm

Three Stooges Short Films - Movie Series
Each third stooge brought something unique and of their own to the act. We always hear about individuality, so why should be any put downs of Shemp or Joe Besser? Shemp revived the act beautifully, but I fully agree that the four, fake Shemp shorts were terrible. I hate watching them and they are shown more than not, which isn't right. Joe Besser was only added because there was still time left on Stooges' contract with Columbia. Also, it was downright difficult to find a replacement for Shemp and Curly. So, don't expect much for Besser shorts. TV at the time was the latest and greatest technology. The Besser shorts were made on a low budget, filmed sometimes in just one day (a few hours), and with recycled footage dating back to the Curly years in some instances (eg. "Sappy Bullfighters" final, released short). Not surprisingly, the final years (production and release of the Besser shorts- 1957 to 1959) were the beginning of the end for the Stooges. The shorts department literally shut down after "Flying Saucer Daffy" was shot. Besser's wife was ailing. Harry Cohn, long time president of Columbia died in February (correct me if I'm wrong) of 1958. Not surprisingly, everything after that with Joe DeRita just wasn't as funny or the same. I could not even watch more than a few minutes of any full length movies made after 1959. The TV revival, if I am not mistaken, probably kept the Stooges going until the end of the next decade, when Larry suffered that stroke. Honestly, there were a few of the Curly shorts that I do not like, such as Rythym and Weep. Not all of the Curly shorts were comedy gold, but it looks like the vast majority like Curly the most. I want to add that 1946 was not a good year for the act. There were a few, weak shorts made before that, but much of the year consisted of bombs and flops. When you watch most of the shorts made and released that year (with Curly), you knew Curly's days were numbered with the act. Again, Shemp's availability and interest upon returning to the act gave the Stooges a much needed boost. It helped into the first half of the 1950s. Finally, in order to watch and appreciate Joe Besser, you have to learn how to make fun of his character. In a way, it encourages viewer reaction and participation. The shorts with Tiny were indeed terrible, especially when singing is involved. -- Submitted By: () on November 8, 2013, 8:12 pm

Hobbit, The - Movie Series
I can't really judge the series properly until the trilogy is completed, but it seems excessive and I can't help be cynical about the motives.

Robert, the films are based on 4 novels, each well over 300 pages long, some are closer to 400: The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King). Collectively they represent almost 1,500 pages. That's some short story! Crack a book before you criticize, or at least Google.

Nightmare on Elm Street - Movie Series
Jackie Earl Hayley was best as Rorschach. The new freddy looked too much like a burnt frog where I thought he was going to ensnare his victims with his long tongue instead of nightmares. I've heard that there was only supposed to have had been one Nightmare film, because Wes Craven was on and off for support as the movies carried on. To the point where it got so stupid after 4, 5, and 6. That he had to go make New Nightmare and try to re-establish Freddy as a monster. It was so-so. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on October 6, 2013, 3:10 am

Scary Movie - Movie Series
The first was tolerable because it really wanted to parody Scream. It did it's job okay. Since then, all it cared about was taking quick spoof jabs at everything horror and even a little outside horror. The humor only became amusing to teenagers 12 - 16 until later when the "_____" Movie spoofs began to explode to try and cover everything. Then it became where only idiots laughed at that stuff because the humor was just cheap. Every of those movies is a sign of what not to do when making a spoof film. And almost every spoof film like them. If you want spoof movies that are clever and funny. Look to all the Mel Brooks films. So many people quote those films to death because they were funny and at their time, were considered a little borderline offensive. Blazing Saddles for example. But it made fun of issues you could try to laugh at simply because of how ridiculous the real situations are. Scary Movie and every "____" Movie just derived their material on making fun of pop culture which is practically an easy target but at the same time, take cheap routes to make fun of them which is about the same level of "your mom" jokes or toilet humor. -- Submitted By: () on September 29, 2013, 2:53 am

Jungle Book, The - Movie Series
The first Jungle Book isn't bad at all. Decent enough story. Baloo and Bagheera were cool. So were the villains, Kah and Shere Kahn. Although I've never seen a Jungle Book sequel, I'd imagine it's out there. Probably not worth the time. Disney movies tend to be that way. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 28, 2013, 11:52 pm

X-Men - Movie Series
This series jumped with X3 and un-boned with FC. X3 had a lousy director and an atrocious script that was little more than a list of Fan Boy Wants: Phoenix Saga: check. Sentinel: check. Danger Room: check. They killed off Cyclops and Professor X, had Rogue taking the cure. Wolverine was acting as wimpy as Cyclops when he wasn't trying to get in Jean's knickers, all thoroughly unconvincing scenes because Hugh Jackman and Famke Jannsen have zero chemistry. The best movies hinge on good story lines and chemistry. X1 worked, primarily because Jackman and Anna Paquin exhibit a chemistry that's off the charts. They made viewers care about their characters. Poor Anna's had nothing to work with as far as Rogue's powers are concerned, so I can see why she's irritated, especially given the screen time allotted to Storm when Halle's performance has been almost universally panned. FC also has a great story line, and there's a real spark between Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence, making it very believable, that she'd walk away from Charles after so many years, to side with Erik. Now that Singer's back, with any luck, DOFP will be another step up. -- Submitted By: () on September 19, 2013, 11:29 pm

Who Framed Roger Rabbit - Movie Series
Roger Rabbit was great for its time. Combining live action And animation, being in the mystery/fantasy genre, using Warner, Disney and other studios characters, and the controversy surrounding Jessica Rabbit. I watched it the other day, it was on TV, it's campy but still it was wonderfully produced. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on September 14, 2013, 12:12 pm

Da Vinci Code, The - Movie Series
SUCKED! This movie would've been a HUGE, controversial hit in the eighties a la Passion of the Christ- back when the world wasn't connected to the internet and SO much information wasn't freely circulating in cyberspace,,,,,now it's just a book I couldn't get into, and a movie completely devoid of any mystery or tension,,,,the movie reminded me more of the sucky National Treasure franchise for sheer flatness and lack of action,,,,, -- Submitted By: (Arkady) on August 29, 2013, 10:21 am

Batman - Movie Series
Not optimistic about Ben Affleck. I'm not going to vote that as a BTF moment yet because there's a small possibility he might pull it off. I still think they should have given Batman a rest for a while and given other superheroes a chance. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on August 27, 2013, 11:26 am

Batman - Movie Series
Ben Affleck will be Batman! What was going through their heads when they went with that casting option? Just as i thought with George clooney, he's more than capable of pulling off Bruce Wayne but not so sure about Batman. I suppose I'll only see two actors as Batman, campy version Adam West and Michael Keaton. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on August 26, 2013, 8:17 am

Titanic - Movie Series
There are actually at least three Titanic movies; not just the latest one. The other two were better than the Jack/Rose version. The best part of watching the Jack/Rose version at the movie theatre was when Jack started to "sink below the water" and a good portion of the audience started cheering; I just broke out laughing at that reaction. Of course my wife nor any other women in the audience thought that it was funny. But I sure did. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on August 18, 2013, 12:20 pm

Three Men and a Baby - Movie Series
Sorry but the sequel was a joke. And who couldn't tell that Ted was the minister at the wedding? Even my wife found it to be a waste of time, (and that's saying something since Selleck was starring in it). -- Submitted By: (Pete) on August 18, 2013, 12:07 pm

Naked Gun, The - Movie Series
This movie series was great; never boned. I like the second one the best; especially the "Blues Bar" scene. True comedy. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on August 18, 2013, 11:56 am

Jaws - Movie Series
First movie; fantastic. Second movie; OK; after that no words can quite describe the feeling one gets in their stomach watching them. End of "third movie"; thank god the dolphins made it; who cares about the number of people killed! Fourth Movie: Michael Caine should have won an Oscar for his portrayal of the guy who's turned on by Lorraine Gary. Even the Shark couldn't stomach that storyline. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on August 18, 2013, 11:52 am

Jack Ryan films - Movie Series
I read the book "Sum of all Fears" before the movie came out. When I saw that the movie,(the bomb going off), was set in a different city; different lead actor; different story line in that Jack was just starting out; etc... you get the picture; just couldn't watch it. I know; same old Hollywood. I do like the first three movies though; even with the change in actors. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on August 18, 2013, 11:45 am

Monsters, Inc. - Movie Series
That's good news, Randall's not a nerd for long. It's just, I don't buy that. Nothing about him says, "I used to be a nerd once": he's evil, Machiavellian, and murderous (he tried to kill Sully near the end). Mike or Sully, on the other hand...wouldn't it have been funny that big tough Sully was once a quiet, shy nerd? I'll watch M.U. when it hits video, and when I do, I can give an accurate opinion. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 18, 2013, 12:47 pm

I've seen Monster's University, and I do want to mention that the part about Randall being a nerd/nice guy is actually disposed of early on. -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on July 6, 2013, 9:26 pm

Monsters, Inc. - Movie Series
There is no reason for Monsters, Inc. to have a sequel, much less a prequel. Why would you need a college education to enter kids' bedrooms and make them scream in fright? Is this a Monsters Inc version of Animal House? Just when I was thinking this movie had a tiny glimmer of hope instead of being yet another sequel or prequel...I see Randall as a nerd. Way to stamp out that glimmer, Disney. I haven't seen it yet, so I'll hold back on saying whether it boned or not until I do. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on July 6, 2013, 4:11 pm

Back to the Future - Movie Series
@Parker-LOL! Yes, I really enjoy BTTF as a series, however I recently watched it with my kids and I found myself repeatedly having to explain so many of the gags and references to 80's pop culture. For instance, the whole ZZ Top cameo and the spinning guitars thing in part 3 were completely lost on my 13 & 9 year old. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on July 5, 2013, 1:43 am

Meatballs - Movie Series
I agree. The first one rocked. comedy, with a touching story about the lonely kid no one likes. Great movie, then they had to touch on the E.T. craze in the second and the series went down hill from there. One was more than enough -- Submitted By: (rgphillips1971) on July 3, 2013, 3:43 pm

Wizard of Oz, The - Movie Series
So, I finally got around to watching Oz: The Great and Powerful. It had none of the charm wizard of oz had. Mila Kunis did her best but other than her it was pretty boring, obviously predictable, and definitely alot of continuity errors based from the 1939 movie. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 2, 2013, 8:36 pm

Kung Fu Panda - Movie Series
The first Kung Fu Panda was funny. It really was. The second had more of a dark undertone. For this reason, I didn't enjoy it as much. Plus, it suffered from sequel syndrome. Just not as good as the first. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 2, 2013, 8:27 pm

Hunchback of Notre Dame, The (Disney movie) - Movie Series
I liked the Easter Eggs in this movie. Near the beginning, when you see the crowd in the square you see Scar (From The Lion King) make a cameo, as well as Belle (from (Beauty and the beast). There are also Homages to The Three Stooges and The Wizard of Oz. -- Submitted By: (Regulus) on June 18, 2013, 7:51 pm

Major League - Movie Series
As others (including myself) have already posted, Major League 2 had a multitude of problems. The thing that stuck out like a sore thumb, though, was Wesley Snipes' being replaced in the role of Willie Mays Hayes by Omar Epps. It wasn't that Epps was horrible -- he was actually pretty good -- but that he just didn't bring quite the same flair to the role that Snipes did. As far as I'm concerned, we had Hayes in the first movie and "fake Hayes" in the second. It wouldn't have made that much difference in the overall quality of the movie, but they would have been better off writing Hayes out of the movie and putting Epps in as a totally new character. In real life, of course, the reason Snipes didn't return for the second movie was because he'd gotten his acting career established on his own, and ML2 had an obvious reference to that by depicting Hayes as having starred in an action movie during the off-season. But since Snipes was gone, Hayes should have been gone as well. That wouldn't have turned ML2 into high art, as it had plenty of other problems, but at least it wouldn't have been **as much** of a fish-fest. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on June 14, 2013, 8:30 am

Teen Wolf - Movie Series
MTV has made a show out of this. It look horrible, but I haven't officially watched it. I just know, from a preview I had seen, some dude drowning another dude. I don't recall Michael J. Fox or Jason Bateman doing that one bit. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on May 29, 2013, 7:39 pm

Back to the Future - Movie Series
I was bummed when I saw "The End" after the third movie. Remember the event that sent Doc back to the old west. There was some kind of malfunction with the time circuit just before the bolt of lightning struck the car. That malfunction would happen again when Marty attempts to return to 1985. Going over the ravine, he notices something peculiar as the car crosses the intersection, all the cars are antique automobiles! He looks at the circuit and realizes he's in the year 1927! He makes a rudimentary repair to the car so that it can run on gas, at least long enough to get back to 1985. He goes to a gas station to get gas, he interrupts a young couple who kissing behind the gas station. He gets the gas, then exits the station. The couple enters the station, suddenly a Car with Gangsters brandishing Tommy Guns drives at a high rate of speed, they open fire on the station, killing the owner of the station and the couple. Marty evades them, then hops in the Delorian and steps on the gas, a Steam Locomotive hot on his heels. Finally arriving in 1985 guess what? The Casino is back, but not owned by Biff. He also finds out Jennifer was never born! (That couple he ran across were Jennifer's Grandparents). Returning to the railroad tracks, he sees the Delorian destroyed, but then here comes Doc in his souped-up Locomotive. Marty hops in and they now embark on a adventure in the Roaring 20s! -- Submitted By: () on May 21, 2013, 12:56 pm

@Joebagodoughnuts How about the fact that Mickey had none of the wounds he had the night before? He wasn't even on crutches. The only good part of number two was from then meeting with the KKK and to the end, that's it. Hell, I fast forward through the restaurant scene because it takes so long.

Star Trek - Movie Series
I'm going to vote "unboned by the 2009 film." Here is my brief recap of the Star Trek movies. I have seen all of them (most of them multiple times) except for Nemesis, which I have found to be unwatchable. 1.) Star Trek: The Motion Picture was actually much better than most contemporaries credited it for. 2.) Star Trek II: TWOK has been, and always shall be, our friend. 3.) ST III: TSFS was relatively weak compared to ST II; the re-casting of Saavik was painful (although it's not like Kirstie Alley was the best actress). On the upside -- Christopher Lloyd playing a Klingon. 4.) ST IV: TVH was my favorite when I was a kid, although it has aged a little. But if you don't like it, well, double dumbass on you! 5.) ST V: TFF was a trainwreck, and probably where the film series (at least as far as the original crew) can be said to have BTF. The exact moment where fish-boning occurs -- Nichelle Nichols (who is about the same age as my grandmother) doing a "seductive" desert dance. 6.) ST VI: TUC is actually quite good, but after the disaster that was the fifth film, seems like a too-little-too-late effort to salvage the reputation of the series. 7.) ST:Generations. I was very excited for this film when it came out, but the cross-over with Shatner seemed forced. It wasn't nearly as awful as the fifth film but was still pretty bad. Moreover, it seemed like an overly-long ST:TNG episode... something about it's pacing I guess. 8.) ST:First Contact was really the only good ST:TNG film. It wasn't quite as good as The Wrath of Khan, but definitely on par with the quality of the first four. 9.) ST:Insurrection, again, reverted to form as an overly-long television episode rather than as a stand-alone movie. I can't really think about anything in this film that made me excited to be watching it. But at least it wasn't terribly crappy. 10.) ST: Insurrection. As noted above, I haven't been able to finish it because I am completely uninterested. I happen to think that Picard was the best captain of the Enterprise, but it is really a fact that (with the exception of First Contact) all of the Picard-helmed films fell short. 11.) Star Trek (2009). A much-needed re-imagining of the original series, with a cross-over to ST:TNG (sort of). This has definitely revived my interest in the series, and as noted above, I vote for a de-bone. 12.) Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013). I have not seen this yet, but I am very much looking forward to seeing it. Waiting until next week when it will be available in 3D. -- Submitted By: (texasyojimbo) on May 11, 2013, 12:24 pm

Our Gang / Little Rascals - Movie Series
The only version of "Little Rascals" I've seen is the movie that came out in the 90s. For whatever reason, it has the ability to captivate the viewer. I can't tell you how many time I've watched it with my nieces. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on May 9, 2013, 10:38 pm

Arrival - Movie Series
The first Arrival movie (starring Charlie Sheen) underperformed at the box office but has since become a cult classic. It combines the best elements of the sci-fi, mystery, drama, and even conspiracy-theory movie genres. It also far predates Sheen's "winning" trip off the rails in 2011, so it shows Sheen at his acting best. For all those reasons, the first movie is well worth watching. The sequel, however, falls short of the original in every way possible: acting, writing, characterization ... you name it, the sequel blew it, with the exception of the special effects being at least decent considering it was direct-to-video (and thus budgeted accordingly). If I recall correctly, Arrival II didn't even handle the alien story consistently with the first movie, but I have no interest whatsoever in re-watching it to double-check the details. If the idea of sci-fi seasoned with a bit of mystery appeals to you, by all means you should check out the first movie. However, ALL parties are advised to take a VERY broad pass on the sequel, unless they've got some kind of morbid interest in bad movies. I'm not sure what genre(s) the second movie was aiming for, but whatever it was, it ended up as a healthy serving of fish. For the first movie, break out the popcorn; for the second, coleslaw and lemon juice. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 8, 2013, 2:29 am

Star Wars - Movie Series
The continuity/quality control for the whole franchise went out the window in the late 90's. The first "Extended Universe" novels and comics that were released in the early and mid 1990's were great (Thrawn trilogy, Shadows of the Empire) and didn't conflict with any SW product that had been released up to that point. -- Submitted By: (John63btf) on May 4, 2013, 5:22 am
