    Maybe if you used a higher percentage of your brain, you would have gotten it....

    (I kid, I was underwhelmed, despite the presence of Scarlett Johansson)

    The sad truth is we do use 100% of our brain. The whole 10% thing is ********.

    You have to give them credit, doing the impossible. They made a movie starring Scarlett Johansson and she wasn't sexy. When the dialogue is so cheesy you can't focus on ScarJo's radiance, that's a bad movie.

    Most of those big special effects blockbusters are better if you turn them off 3/4 of the way thru, before they careen into silliness.

    Yep. I refuse to watch this movie just because it is based on a pernicious myth.

    Now, if SJ was mostly naked, I could probably relax my rules... :dude

    Correct, it was very lame. The ending simply ruined it completely. It's like the story needed to be to the publisher by 5.

    It seems dumb enough that I'll have to check it out sometime haha. One that comes to mind like that was Ultraviolet, I almost turned it off but about halfway in, the "so bad it's good" clicked on and I ended up really enjoying it lol.

    Yeah, that made the movie a tough sell right from the start...

    Well, I liked it. In the sequel she looks at guys and their junk burns off clean and cauterized.

    I watched it on a plane. I could not believe how spoon-fed the plot was. It was a serious insult to any intelligence of the viewers.

    Plus, they could have achieved the same effect without discussing what percentage of ones brain one used. These plot devices are so stupid-- as if it could be quantified at all.

    I like mindless movies with great looking actresses.
