Here's the thing, I wanted to be nice to Legendary. I really did. It stars Patricia Clarkson, who's not only a great actor, but is the next door neighbor of one of my best friends. She's a super nice lady in real life. Plus it stars Danny Glover, an old favorite of mine from the Lethal Weapon series. And while I haven't liked any of WWE Studios action movies except The Condemned, I thought I'd be open-minded and objective about their first venture into serious drama.
Oh, but this movie sucks. Trite, slooooow, and boring boring boring, with one of the Worst Actresses I've Ever Seen as the teenage love interest to the lead teenager. John Cena is all right; he didn't embarrass himself or the Nexus. But Legendary wasn't worth the dollar rental at Red Box.
One of my favorite shows from last year, Dexter, made its return to Showtime this week. The new season looks like it's going to focus on finding just who was dumping those bodies in the ocean. Oh yeah, that's right. It was Dexter.
