Maybe not, but here's the thing. Yes, the movie was a visual orgasm. I have no qualms with admitting that the there were some fantastic CG and, while I despise 3D films with a passion, it was at least acceptable in this movie. However
, that's all it had going for it. Don't get me wrong; I love Sigourney Weaver and Michelle Rodriguez. Hell, I even worked
for James Cameron many years ago and while he was an ass, at least he was a nice one. But even with all that, it still had a shitty storyline and poor acting. I'm positive that, like Titanic, it was one of those word-of-mouth movies that got everyone going. Teens would see it and tell their friends. Then when it became so popular, their parents would go see just what all the hoopla was about. I've seen far better movies tank at the box office simply because it never got off the ground with a good target audience.
And that's what disappoints me the most; everyone wants to see the Jerry Bruckheimer-esque action movies or American Pie style comedies (don't get me wrong... I love those as well), but to hell with a good drama.
I blame today's youth.
