    "Venom's supposed to be a big square jawed bruiser. Find me the only person in Hollywood Tobey McGuire could believably bully."

    So true?

    I think his performance for the concept of an autistic mad man super villain was great, that character just shouldn't have been Lex Luthor. I actually think that exact performance would have worked great as a gritty interpretation of The Riddler.

    So true?

    Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades movies. [It's] painful how little chemistry those two had!

    Abigail Breslin as Baby in the ABC Dirty Dancing remake. It was awful.

    Okay so this comment just angered me so much. I whole heartedly agree with you. I didn't even know they remade Dirty Dancing. I'm glad I didn't know. It's an abomination just from the trailer.

    The worst part is that they took a movie about dancing, and pretty much turned it in a musical. I watched clips of the "iconic" scenes on youtube and was appalled. My fiancee, who knows my love of Dirty Dancing, laughed at me for a week because I was frothing at the mouth anytime I remembered this piece of sh*t "remake".

    "Time of My Life" Ending Dance

    "Hungry Eyes Dance" Training Montage

    I mean look at this sh*t. The ending iconic dance to "Time of My Life" and they are singing. The focus of this whole DANCE movie was singing, while Abigail Breslin attempts to shift now and then in what I think is dancing.

    They couldn't find one dancer, one girl who looks like the girl next door and could dance? The "Hungry Eyes" training scene is unbelievably boring, bordering on depressing, they lack chemistry and make you want to do anything BUT watch the rest of this sh*t fest they call a movie.

    My apologies, I thought I had gotten over my hatred, but apparently this movie still sends me into a blinding rage. I should probably go lie down.

    So true?
