    WHITEOUT is the worst film I've ever seen

    Whiteout...

    by Kavalier

    I thought Whiteout was going to be an entirely different type of film than it actually was (if you've seen the trailer and the movie, you know what I mean). I was so disappointed by that film. But I have to say that I can't quite agree that it was the worst. It was just not what I thought it would be and, even after coming to terms with that, it was just limp in its delivery.

    duuuuude

    by LethargicJ

    Do you do any research for this thing? I've personally watched 7 of these movies on cable several weeks ago. Fired Up and Jennifer's Body? Those movies are from 2009, they've been on cable for MONTHS.

    and even more amazingly..

    by LethargicJ

    You list movies that have already been playing yet DON'T mention the actual real, bonafide, first time ever on cable, September premieres of Sherlock Holmes, The Vampire's Assistant, Ninja Assassin, Did You Hear About the Morgans, Dear John, Armored and Everybody's Fine.

    At least Showtime is finally airing movies a year after theatric

    by Bullet_time_Facehugger

    It never made sense to me when they'd wait a full year and then another six months to air some movie they had the rights to. I know thats not really where the competition is at anymore, but still, it always seemed like a dumb programming decision.

    Whiteout? Yeah, I liked it.

    by NinjaRap

    It's a small, simple movie, but I thought it was really cool how it did a crime story in such a specific, unusual setting. Of course, I also saw this trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TEk0GI5VDM which I thought was accurate to the material. Many people saw THIS trailer instead, though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ev9cIe4FFY and that trailer makes you think you're getting some kinda damned supernatural thriller with fucking aliens or some shit.

    Lotta these are already showing on cable...

    by Somerichs

    HBO/Cinemax is showing several of the ones you're attributing to them already. I like the idea of this column in theory (no, I don't have netflix), in practice I think it needs a little tuneup... ;)

    This reminds me of the time...

    by I am_NOTREAL

    that I tried to watch "Boondock Saints" (the first one) and nearly vomited from the sheer stupidity of it. What a piece of crap, I can't believe anyone--ANYONE--not directly related to the director has anything but disdain for it. Seriously, that movie is shit.

    HBO/Max show same films, premiere month apart

    by strykebr

    those are the duplicates you talk about, I enjoy this column though....EYE SEE YOU IS THE SAME FILM AS WHITEOUT, Kris Kristofferson is in both of them, and they both were tUrrible
