Re: “Stop the Bourne-ness

It's only the insane insatiable appetite for "any" entertainment in our current society that allows these tropes to survive. Let's hope the a more ubiquitous future of entertainment delivery will put crap like this in the dustbin of history.

Re: “Stop the Bourne-ness

The chosen pic is the perfect illustration of the cliche.

Re: “Stop the Bourne-ness

I sat for a full minute staring at the last paragraph of this review, flabbergasted that you would consider a film which is literally just a plot hybrid of two previous films, throwing in shallow and horrifically bumbling new characters while completely destroying the personalities of existing ones, to be an example of how to revive a franchise properly.

Re: “Stop the Bourne-ness

I always read one rotten tomatoes reviews, of the many, based on how much I laugh at the reviewer quotes. Though simple, this is a bad movie, was pretty funny. I still love the Doug Liman one the best. The story was fresh, the action was crisp and it slapped James Bond around. We have Kingsman now. Bourne should be aborted.

Re: “Stop the Bourne-ness

Hey everybody...the new Star Trek is okay. It's a fun, silly chapter in the franchise that goes a little overboard, but remains coherent and exciting. As for this summer, I'm just scratching my head. I'm a big fan of the summer movie season, and I really count on this time to have fun on a weekly basis at the cinema. The big blockbusters have been a bust. It's getting ridiculous. On my way to see Suicide Squad now. Pray for me...Grimmy.

Re: “Stop the Bourne-ness

Hey Billy!

As far as films go, it's not just you.

Modern day big budget films are really lacking something. You really have to go independent these days to find something decent. I agree with Grimmy, the latest installment of Star Wars was an exception to the norm. Although I haven't yet seen it, the new Star Trek film interests me...I think that film could be an exception also. The AZ/DC Family hopes so!

Re: “Stop the Bourne-ness

I just saw this movie on one of the XD screens at a local theater. I'm a devoted Jason Bourne fan, but I have to say this reviewer has accurately assessed this latest chapter in the series. It is long, tedious and boring with no contribution to the Jason Bourne franchise.

I think Jason Bourne should probably retire and get another job.

Re: “Dead on Arrival

"Ramis makes an appearance as well in one of the movie's few inspired moments."

But I thought he was dead. Wait, a dead star making an appearance in "Ghostbusters"...that got very meta very fast.

Unless, of course, they just pulled an Ed Wood and cut some old unused footage of him into a new film.
