Perhaps there was an error in the word\\
Or in the articulation of the Sacred Name;\\
In spite of the highest esoteric arts\\

Could I engender this laborious son?\\
Better to have done nothing, this is insanity."''

->I'd like to take a look back at the different segments that came together to make this [[WorstWhateverEver one of history's worst anythings ever]]... The first is Actor Indifference. Nearly all of principle actors from the film are here, and none of them are good enough at their job to hide how much they hate that fact. Creator/HarrisonFord in particular will read the lines but you can kiss his ass if you think he's going to ''try''. If Music/KanyeWest's agent booked him on ''{{Hee Haw}}'', he'd perform with more enthusiasm. And for this reason, each segment's Actor Indifference will be measured in Angry Han Solo Heads. The more you see, [[TheyJustDidntCare the less people cared.]]

->A camouflage sports car with a tank-like turret flies over a hill on a UsedfulNotes/SanFrancisco street. As the car soars through the air in slow motion, thereís an insert shot of Creator/BillCosby in the driverís seat. Cosby, I should note, [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight is looking very bored.]] Get used to this. In fact, most of this movie could be summarized as 'Cut to Bill Cosby, looking bored.' Iíd say he was phoning it in, [[InsultToRocks but thatís something of an overstatement.]] Itís more like heís smoke-signaling it in.

->''Striking Distance'' is a by the numbers cop thriller done so many times by [[Creator/BruceWillis (Bruce) Willis]] it is [[ClicheStorm almost a genre in itself]]. Willis actually went on record apologizing for this movie sucking but really its not that bad. It is more a generic thriller you stumble on one boring night and you watch instead of the paid programming for that giggling dumbbell that looks like you are jerking off. If anything, Bruce should apologize for ''{{Film/North}}''.

->There's a line even [Joel] Schumacher won't cross, and that line is defending the existence of ''Batman & Robin''. Schumacher spends the entire commentary track by himself repeatedly and earnestly apologizing for what he did. No stars to get in the way. No producers. Just an hour and a half of Schumacher pretty much going "God, I am so sorry -- I just ... [[ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime nipples? What the fuck was I thinking?]] Send me your address. I will pay you your money back." There are very few clever anecdotes, precisely zero joyful reminisces -- just a few feeble defenses that quickly give way to shameful apologizing... Take note: Moments of self-awareness like this are rare in Hollywood, and they exist only briefly, like mayflies, before being utterly obliterated by [[HookersAndBlow a mountain of cocaine.]]

->If you need proof that we seldom get to define our own legacies, just look at the Google rankings... The Bob Hoskins movie [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit we all probably rate the highest]] takes third place to [[Film/SuperMarioBros a video game adaptation]] he hated, and [[{{Film/Hook}} a Peter Pan sequel]] most audiences did. Also his turn as Odin in ''Film/SonOfTheMask''. Really?

->''Film/TheJudge'' was a fucking terrible movie that no one liked, and I bet even Duvall is embarrassed that he got nominated for this. When it comes time to play the money clip during the show, they should just throw in a clip of Duvall as [[Film/TheGodfather Tom Hagen]] instead.

->Among the filmís many problems was the fact that Adrian Paul wanted nothing to do with it. He hated the way ''Endgame'' had turned out and refused to go back to [[FranchiseZombie the dead horse]] that was ''Highlander''. So the producers went back to Christopher Lambert, hoping to bring him back into the series somehow despite the fact that they had [[BackForTheDead killed off his character in the last film in order to make it easier to go forward using Adrian Paul]] instead. Lambert refused or, based on how his negotiations with the TV series went, probably just asked for way too much money, knowing his demands wouldnít get met. So the producers had to go crawling back to Adrian Paul, because they desperately wanted one of the iconic [=MacLeods=] in the film. In order to bring Paul onboard, they gave him an executive producer credit... Adrian Paul would later go on record prior to the filmís release and say that ''The Source'' [[{{Understatement}} missed the mark]]. Thatís insanely rare for a lead actor to do in promoting his own movie. It is really that bad.

The new Edward and Bella, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, are on the cover of ''Glamour'' giving off the sexual chemistry of a dead Tilapia and a taxidermied squirrel...Itís as if thirty seconds before that picture was taken, Jamie Dornanís assistant told him that his puppy was murdered, Creator/BettyWhite is in jail for doing it, ''Series/OrangeIsTheNewBlack'' was canceled, a reboot of ''{{Film/Showgirls}}'' [[YoungerAndHipper starring Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor]] was announced, Andy Capp Hot Fries filed for bankruptcy and he found out that he just lost a bunch of money on his car insurance by switching to Advertising/{{Geico}}. Itís like he got the worst news ever all at once and then had to pose with her.\\\
This was probably the exact moment when he realized that every magazine will call him ď''Film/FiftyShadesOfGrey'' star Jamie DornanĒ for the rest of his life!

->Let's undertake a thought experiment. Imagine that--rather than paper and ink--each of those books were composed of: [[KubrickStare a look of unabashed contempt]]; [[ThisIsGonnaSuck a single embittered sigh]]; an explicit request that audiences not see the film adaptation of ''50 Shades of Grey'', vocalized by one of the movie's main stars. Imagine [[SuckinessIsPainful one hundred million pained expressions]], [[NeverHeardThatOneBefore one hundred million eyes rolled]], [[DeadAir one hundred million uncomfortable pauses]] that peter out into one hundred million dead silences.\\\
You have imagined the press tour for the upcoming film ''50 Shades of Grey''...The most glaring problem with the press blitz--currently several months underway, though the film will not be released for another two weeks--is also the most damning for the upcoming film: Simply put, romantic leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan [[InformedAttractiveness do not like each other]]. They dislike other things as well--the press; sex; the film in which they are starring--but it is clear their distaste for each other is the most keenly felt of all.

->It's difficult to find fault with [[Creator/RogerMoore (Roger) Moore personally]] (he can be so charming and amusing), but it's also difficult to not notice his self-observant standoffishness; his bemused contempt for the part. That kind of attitude is deadly for television... (he eventually got that way with ''Series/TheSaint'' and Bond, too, for that matter). It's pretty clear with this first episode that he's not suited for either the role, or weekly TV.

->Look at how bored [Robert] Beltran sounds in the first scene spinning out [[{{Technobabble}} the same sort of nonsense]] as usual. This is a man who has just come back from a ''Trek'' convention and has slagged off the show for [[LesserStar not giving him anything to do]] in an age. And who can blame him? He might not be the world's greatest actor but this is exactly the kind of repetitive monotony that can drive the weakest of performers to speak out.

->It's hardly a 'hidden' reason considering how vocal Kojima was about it, but [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots Old Snake]] is a reflection of Creator/HideoKojima himself. He's apathetic because Kojima is apathetic; he's tired because Kojima is tired; he gave up on his philosophical idealism because Kojima gave up on his philosophical idealism (in regards to the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series at least). Every major characteristic of Old Snake can be traced back to Kojima's own feelings about the series and his fans. The fact that Snake wants to get it all over with so he can die in peace is exactly parallel to Kojima's desire to end the series so he can move on without restrictions... I can't help thinking this is why he allowed a total Westernization of the controls as well; [[FollowTheLeader just blend in and hope for the best.]]

We chatted a little, and then Johnny said, 'Roger, what's your ''least'' favorite Christmas picture?' We were looking directly at each other when he said that, and I noticed an almost invisible expression flash across his face. I knew what the answer was, and I believe in that second Johnny did, too.
