Wow. The previews actually looked good, but there seems to be near universal hate for this movie. I find the disparity odd.
It's shocking to me no one wants to see a movie that shows Harrison Ford doing his grouchy old man routine snarling at people!

What, that an advertisement makes a product sound better than it actually is? How long did it take you to reach Earth?
No, R4, that they're so easily able to cover up something SO BAD and making it seem SO GOOD.
It's not that they're just polishing a turd. It's that they were so successful at doing so.
Most times you can tell.
R5 They couldn't have been that good at it. It opened at 12 at the box office in wide release.

Um, maybe to some people. I remember when we are at the movies and my friends and I saw the preview for the first time...we all thought it looked as pathetically bland and generic as it apparently is.
The National Midnight Star says:
PARANOID is this summer's feel-good breakout hit! TWO very, very enthusiastic thumbs up!

Seriously. I can get that at home for free.
Poor Gary Oldman being stuck in that.
Critics hate it even more than "White Chicks" and "The Smurfs 2."
Damn, this was supposed to be Liam Hemsworth break-out role.
It can't possibly be worse than The Lone Ranger.
Another bad summer movie with negative, angry leads? What's wrong with Hollywood?
You bitches seem to be even more gleeful about this than you were about AfterEarth failing. What did Liam do you guys? Did I miss a text?
r10, Gary Oldman has done paycheque roles for years.
The Batman series is a case in point.
What's funny is that Hemsworth is being compared to another blank pretty-boy who can't act - Taylor Lautner. In HUNGER GAMES, Hemsworth manages to make barely an impact in a small role.
Chris H. should tell his younger brother to take some lessons quickly.
I'm always down for a "so bad it's good" movie. I hope this doesn't disappoint.
