  • The ID4 Syndrome is pretty bad. But the opposite syndrome -- Batman and Robin Syndrome -- is worse.

    Start with a miserable excuse for a plot where everyone already knows the characters. Spend 5 minutes (or less) setting up the plot for this movie (or introducing new characters), and cue the action. Why bother with plot? Why not just throw two hours of CGI and FX footage into Summer Action Porn (tm)?

    When a studio puts out a film that's not as engaging as Battlefield Earth you know something is wrong..

      I'm used to seeing things like "adult themes", "partial nudity", "drug usage", etc. That's the first and only time I've ever come across that particular explanation.
