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.
