Added DiffLines:

->''"If Paz de la Huerta had even a smidgeon of acting ability ''Film/Nurse3D'' probably wouldn't work at all. It's basically a mix of ''Film/AmericanMary'' and ''Film/SingleWhiteFemale''...On paper, that sounds like a recipe for a perfectly rote slasher/thriller that you'd forget about within moments of the film's conclusion, but since even merely saying a character's name proves to be an insurmountable task for Paz, it takes on this bizarre, nearly alien tone that, intentionally or not, turns the film into a trashy comic delight."''

->''"The catch phrase of the movie is [[AC:Danger is real, fear is a choice.]] This is a common theme throughout the entire film, though it appears [[Creator/WillSmith the elder Smith]] and [[Creator/MNightShyamalan Shyamalan]] have unfortunately confused the concept of “fearless” with “emotionless”. As Kitai makes his way across hazardous terrain, he maintains an audio link with his father, who delivers a series of the most monotone motivational speeches you will ever hear. Even during his son’s most horrifying encounters, Will Smith’s voice never wavers from an utterly lifeless tone, and this [[ChildrenAreAWaste becomes unintentionally comical]] after a while."''

'''V1:''' Yeaaahh....The two of them hated each other and they weren't willing to fuckin' [[NoSell sell at all.]] It was ''really'' bad shit.\\
'''Jay:''' You'd think that the ''promos'' would be great, you know? At least.\\
'''V1:''' Maybe it was like they were '''too''' real. Like, they were just tryin' to fuckin' HURT each other, as opposed to entertain us.\\

->''"Seriously?\\\
Cost him the title, cost him revenge, cost him his ''sixteenth title run''--which in WWE continuity would have tied him with '''''RIC FLAIR''''' (which in-storyline, they made a big deal about)? This was huge. His one chance at revenge and Seth Rollins '''fucked''' him....The character of Wrestling/JohnCena just, like, is this [[ThePollyanna chucklehead]]. (finger guns) ''"Ya got me. Woo!"'' None of it has any weight. This is why you can't take this shit with any kinda gravity. ''"LOL, this guy!"'' Can't stand it. ''"Titles come and titles go."''\\\
I remember [[Wrestling/AndreTheGiant Andre]] beat [[Wrestling/HulkHogan Hogan]], I think it was. Andre beat Hogan and it was a complete screwjob, [[EtTuBrute everybody fucked him over]], it was the biggest screwjob ever. Hogan was just beside himself. And they interview Hogan--and Hogan never loses, but he got ''fucked'', [[Wrestling/TedDiBiase Million Dollar Man]] fucked him--and Hogan, who just lost the Title of the Earth, is ''[[InelegantBlubbering weeping like a child]]''. He lost the World Heavyweight Championship! (buries face in hands) "'''''AUUUUUUGH I LET DOWN MY HULKAMANIACS AAAAH BROTHER'''''[="=]"''

Then they just start walking at what can't even be described as a "brisk" pace...Umm, how 'bout a sudden swell of action music and the camera follows behind them in a frantic pace to gather their Jedis to go confront Palpatine? I-I dunno. Maybe Samuel was being 'discreet' or whatever?\\\
But the other way just sounds more exciting in a ''movie!'' I mean, we're not making ''[[Film/TheStraightStory Straight Story]]'' right? But they probably just had, like, [[ChromaKey 30ft of track and green screen to work with]] and those were the lines that they had to say, I guess. I guess it would've just been a lot harder to film if you had a camera with a steadycam and they're runnin' through the Jedi temple and it's all action-packed and stuff. That would mean [[Creator/GeorgeLucas Lucas]] would hafta [[TheyJustDidntCare get off his chair and stop drinkin' his coffee]], and they had to move all the monitors and things. "W-whatever...doesn't require me to get off this chair...and move all this crap.[="=]"''

->''"Clark and Lois are moving into their new apartment, and we get a limp attempt at banter when Clark reveals that Lois has a pillow she made out of a {{Music/Whitesnake}} t-shirt. Lois likes something weird! That’s ''kind'' of like characterization, right? ...Instead of Lois doing a Tawny Kitaen impression, though, we just get Clark saying "I can decipher your scrawl," which I think is meant to be cutesy and back and forth, but because of Tom Welling’s [[KubrickStare deadpan sociopath delivery]], it seems genuinely insulting. Maybe do a second take sometimes, guys."''

->''"I suspect, in fact, that this is why ''Smallville'' developed the increasing tendency to exploit the [[{{Film/Superman}} Donner films]] -- they are emblematic, iconic, not perfect but as close as just about anything in this genre has come. Mostly because of [[Music/JohnWilliams Williams']] score and [[Creator/ChristopherReeve Reeve's]] performance...Tom Welling turned in a lot of strong moments but it turns out to have been a very good thing this show was only ever "about Clark Kent, not Superman" because it strikes me as decidedly unlikely he could ever really have delivered a reliable dual-identity: in fits and starts toward the end, he gave us "mild-manners," but it seemed fairly obvious he wanted Clark Kent to be Superman [[TheDragAlong as much as his version of Clark did.]] All things considered, he seems only ever to have always [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy been himself]], neither really Clark nor Superman."''
