First off, let me be the 50th to cosign that Waiting is hilarious.
and a general lack of imagination by the studios
Dude there's a movie coming out called Cowboys and Aliens, imagination brought! /peter king
When Green Lantern badly underperformed last weekend, it shouldn't have been surprising, because Reynolds isn't a movie star ... We just spent the past 10 years compiling evidence that said, emphatically, "Ryan Reynolds can't carry a bad movie." Or, really, any movie.
It underperformed because according to everyone, the movie sucks because the script sucked not because of Ryan Reynolds, kinda like both Fantastic Fours sucking because the scripts sucked, not because the actors sucked. But according to Simba, inability to carry a bad movie means you are not a movie star, everyone remember this.
Van Wilder, Waiting, Definitely, Maybe, plus the best part of the Wolverine movie, he can carry if given anything decent.
he dated and married Scarlett Johanssen at the peak of her buxom powers (getting a nice Us Weekly career boost out of it);
reignited the whole "Ryan Reynolds is a movie star" storyline,9 because if he's appearing in Us Weekly every other week, then dammit, that means he's a star.
I think the photographers of US Weekly going on strike would crush simba more than the NBA lockout.
Anyway, his STARS!
Smith and Leo; Depp and Cruise; Clooney, Damon and Pitt; Downey and Bale; Hanks and Denzel; Stiller and Sandler; Crowe and Bridges; Carell, Rogen, Ferrell and Galafianakis; Wahlberg and Affleck; Gyllenhall (it kills me to put him on here, but there's just no way to avoid it); Justin Timberlake (who became a movie star simply by being so famous that he brainwashed us); and amazingly, Kevin James
3 of Tom Cruise's last 4 movies:Knight and Day
: $117 mil budget, $20 mil opening weekend and $76 mil domestic gross, boy he carried that shit showValkryie
which was well reviewed and underperformed: $75 mil budget, $20 mil opening weekend $83 mil dom gross: STAR!Lions for Lambs
with Simba's wet dream Meryl Streep and Robert Redford: $35 mil budget, $15 mil dom gross
His one other movie? Tropic Thunder where he was like the 17th guy, but he danced in a fat suit at the end so yeah, STAR
That took up a lot of space so I'll just say Johnny Depp had The Tourist, Rango, Public Enemies, and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus all out in the past couple years and none made their budget back in the US. Sweeney Todd barely surpassed it.
George Clooney may be banging any chick he wants but outside of the Ocean's movies (ensemble!) he isn't making bank: Fantastic Mr Fox ($20 mil, 1/2 of budget), The American ($35 mil on $20 mil bud), Men Who Stare at Goats w/fellow STAR Jeff Bridges ($32 mil), Burn After Reading w/fellow STAR Pitt ($60 mil), Leatherheads ($31 mil, $58 mil budget), Syriana ($50.8 mil on 50 mil bud), hell Intolerable Cruelty ($35 mil on $60 mil bud).
Bah, i'm tired of that, Simba's retarded, but the other two biggies that flash "My name i Phil Simpson and I have no idea what I'm talking about" Steve Carrell is a STAR but Paul Rudd isn't... come again???? (Steve Carrell STARS in Evan Almighty, $100 mil on $175 budget) And Zach Galigfdsfdsaf is a STAR? For being in The Hangovers and Due Date? (Youth in Revolt $15 mil on $18 mil bud; G-Force [
] $119 mil on $150 bud).
This is as retarded as his list of NBA players who would have made the cut Dennis Johnson made when Bird stole the ball.
What Simba SHOULD have done was directors instead of actors. if JJ Abrams makes a movie, it's gonna make $$$. Same with Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorcese, James Cameron, to a lesser extent Michael Bay, Steven Spielberg, the Coen Bros., Apatow and his gang , Roland Emmerich etc. Why does Leo Dicaprio make $$ with his movies? He sticks with guys like Scorcese. De Niro needs to go back to him. Hanks did a long stretch with Spielberg. Ferrell, Carrell, Rogen, Rudd stuck with Apatow.
And what the hell,
In 2002, he landed his first starring role in National Lampoon's Van Wilder. The good news: It made money, earned decent Rotten Tomatoes audience reviews (78 percent!)7 and spawned an eventual sequel that nobody saw.
Maybe no one saw the sequel because he wasn't in it? And is that somehow his fault? Ahnuld and Predator spawned some stupid sequel with Danny Glover, no one saw that (and yes, I saw the Van Wilder sequel, i liked it, hot English ta tas certainly helped).
mister bacon love watching soccer. baseball is about as exciting as scratching my balls.
MisterTambourineMan you're not scratching your balls right, then.
