    The basket ball scene made me turn it off. It's cringe inducing bad, and it's arguably racist.

    I did catch the cgi job with her in the outfit jumping around though. Laughably bad.

    People can hate on Catwoman, Batman and Robin and Howard the Duck all they want. These movies are FUN. Something missing from many movies today.

    Agreed.

    Only fun to poke fun at because the films are so bad they're cheesy. To defend these movies as being genuinely good is not to know and understand filmmaking.

    So true. Watching the ruining of beloved characters is tragic to witness.

    I don't even know what to say. Some people are just uptight, I guess.

    Or have a low tolerance for crap films.

    Being uptight has nothing to do with it. I love movies that are made to entertain but movies that are made well to entertain.

    Crap, overrated toy commercial. Cool visuals, though.

    the-conversation-movie-poster-1974-1020299110.jpg

    ...it just can't hope to really live up to a spy thriller of that caliber, even though Tony Scott is a capable enough director, because of the presence of Wil Smith. He injects an element of camp that subverts the tone of the rest of the film, Green and Black's characters notwithstanding. They aren't out-of-character they contrast well with their psycho in a suit boss and are otherwise realistic portrayals whereas Smith is supposed to be dramatic lead but he just does his Wil Smith thing and isn't even trying here.

    If you haven't seen the Francis Ford Copolla film you should check it out. It's 1974 Copolla, from when he was a godlike filmmaker. It's right up there with Three Days of the Condor and an epic tale of paranoia.

    Yeah man! I only saw it, finally, a few years ago and hated myself for saying, for years, "I'll get around to it," whenever the film would pop up. You look at something like this and Apocalypse Now and the first two Godfather films all I can hear in my head are the words of Ordell Robbie from Jacky Brown:

    "What the fuck happened to you, man?
    Shit, your ass used to be beautiful!"

    Best spook flick ever made. Better than the book 6 Days of the Condor it was loosely based on.
