The movies around him might be well produced, but he rarely actually says anything so I might as well have been cast.

My missus doesn't care. Just as long as he's on screen, she's happy.

I liked them too but I can only remember Canoe grunting a few times. Can't remember any of his actual dialogue.

Nor was Independence Day: Resurgence, and I thought that was a hoot. Sci-Fi comedy at its finest.

That movie was pants. There are no 2 ways about it.

No doubt. But funnier than Mars Attacks, and it didn't have Will Smith. I spent most of the time spotting the movies that it was ripping off ("paying homage to"?): there was barely an original scene, as far as I could tell. (The one or two scenes that I thought may have been original were almost certainly because I hadn't seen the film that they were copying)

The problem was that there was too much money thrown at it for it to be so bad it's hilarious. Its budget made you believe you should be taking it seriously.

AO Scott in the NY Times gave it a mildly positive review saying it delivered on its brand and even going so far as to talk about how we have grown an affection for the alien whom he likened to a speed skater in a helmet.   Ick.  I watched Prometheus.  That's 2 hours and 4 minutes of my life I won't get back.  No way am I going back to that planet for round 2.

That's a good deal more succinct and most likely more accurate than the NY Times review.

I don't look at the budget for a film. Oddly I thought that first Independence Day was a very poor second rate movie that got more attention than it deserved because the special effects were very well done (and to be honest anything with Data in where his name is not Data is pretty much guaranteed to be crap). The second one seemed to realise the shortcomings of the first and (apparently deliberately) riffed on them for laughs.

It boils down to the difference between A and B movies. Generally speaking, money ain't chucked at send-ups.

If Resurgence was meant to be funny, where the golly was Dwayne Johnson?

Dude eats ten pounds of food per day, I doubt most movies budget that much to craft services
just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

Mummy re-remake is a flop. Which really sucks for UNIVERSAL. They were looking to follow in the MCU mold of an interconnected universe, but it never was. Mashing it all together will just be garbage.

Apparently they didn't even bother making it fun like the movies with encino man.
