Must See Movies--From A Certain Point Of View

I read a recent article on SyFy’s “Blastr” page (yes, the “e” is left out of the word on purpose) about 14 upcoming movies. The list said that 10 of them are a “must see” while 4 of them you should “avoid.”

SyFy is owned by NBCUniversal, who also owns Universal Pictures.

For giggles, I decided to see which pictures were recommended and what company produced them.

Here is the list:

(Avoid) After Earth  Sony Pictures / Columbia Pictures

(Must See) Man of Steel  Warner Brothers

(Avoid) World War Z  Paramount Pictures

(Avoid) The Lone Ranger  Walt Disney Pictures

(Must See)  Pacific Rim  Warner Brothers  

(Must See) The Wolverine  20th Century Fox

(Avoid) 300: Rise of an Empire  Warner Brothers 

(Must See) Elysium  Tri Star Pictures

(Must See) Kick A** 2  Universal Pictures 

(Must See) Riddick  Universal Pictures

(Must See) Ender’s Game  Lionsgate Films

(Must See) Thor: The Dark World  Walt Disney Pictures

(Must See) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire  Lionsgate Films 

(Must See) The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug  Warner Brothers 

I wish I could say that I was surprise that both of the pictures on the list from Universal Pictures were on the “Must See” list, but I’m not.

Man, I’m getting jaded in my old age.
