->''"For what's known as [[DorkAge the low point]] of Creator/{{Dreamworks}}, it was massively successful. It was even number one in the United States theaters for three weeks. It was the ninth most profitable movie of 2004, and 2004 was not a bad year in film. It wasn't even a bad year for animated films really; not the best but still decent. Then I took a look at it, and it all made sense: this movie is a lot worse now then it first came out. You might have heard of this little trick: [[WereStillRelevantDammit doing everything possible to be hip and relevant and trying to cash in on current trends]] [...] Every fact about this movie just seems like [[MoneyDearBoy a corporate cash-in]]. [...] Everything from [[TotallyRadical the way that they talked]], to [[FollowTheLeader the suspicious fact]] that [[Disney/FindingNemo another animated film starring fish was released with massive success just the year before]], and as such, this movie has aged. It's aged about as well as a bag of rotten eggs on a summer time sidewalk."''

->''"So ''Film/MadMax'', or, as it's called in its native land, '[[LandDownunder Med Mex]]', finally rolls into Video Game Town... only to find that the industry is way ahead of it and we've already played what might as well have been the ''Mad Max'' video game about seventeen times already by my count, between ''{{VideoGame/Borderlands}}'', ''{{VideoGame/Rage}}'', ''{{VideoGame/Carmageddon}}'', the entire ''{{VideoGame/Fallout}}'' franchise and, to a lesser extent, ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioKart Mario Kart]]''."''

-> ''"Every artistic form—the blank-verse drama, the Greek plays, the novel--has only so many possibilities and only so long a life. And I have a feeling that in movies, until we break completely, we are only increasing the library of good works."''

->''"My theory on the backlash to this film has less to do with the quality of what's on the screen and what it represents; a pre-postmodern America of the pulps and the frontier, an America of ''[[IWantMyJetpack possibility]]'' that's lost to us now. ''John Carter, Warlord of Mars'' is definitely not a postmodern superhero, and can't be revised to postmodernity the way Guy Ritchie's ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' was."''

->''"At a certain point, with age, we lose our grip on which ideas are cyclical and which ideas are perpetual and which ideas have died out. {{Music/Madonna}} is just mimicking modes of edginess that worked for her in the past--that were new and important in the past--but what was once progressive nearly always becomes regressive. Because we learn so much all the time. The racial exploitation of ''Sex''-era Madonna was provocative once; [[TheManIsStickingItToTheMan now it's just exploitation.]] So when do we cut our idols loose? When does the Queen of Reinvention run out of raw materials and turn into the, um, Lesser Duchess of Recycling?"''

->''"It does not look remarkable different from ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Next Generation]]'', in my opinion. I think it is edited in the same way, the way it’s staged, the direction that they’re allowed to do, how they tell a story, the lighting scheme – a lot of it is very, very redolent of ''Next Generation''… It has not moved on with television. It’s still stuck in a very old groove."''

->''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' was so insanely, teeth-grindingly terrible it nearly killed the entire ''Star Trek'' franchise (and {{space opera}}, arguably, as well) forever. Even Jeri Ryan in a lycra suit couldn't redeem this atrocity, which took every annoying tic and quirk and cringe-inducing faux pas of every ''Star Trek'' episode ever and built a series around it.
