Just seen After Earth with Will Smith and junior. I expected worse, given the critics, but it was above average. Actually would have been better as a low budget movie.

Also just seen the latest Mad Max. Enjoyed it thoroughly, but I was expecting awesomeness, given the reviews, instead of B+. What I really liked about the film was that it was a continuation of the story, rather than a reboot. Hope for a sequel by the same man.

Sometimes some peoples' opinions on movies, shows, games, and such needs to be taken with at least a good portion of the salt shaker

I worked in a theater when After Earth came out, probably the worst movie I've ever seen. Customers would be mad after the movie for the employees not warning them how bad it was.

3-Headed Shark Attack.
best part of the movie: not sure if there was one.
worst part of the movie: the part between the opening and closing credits.

About 100 minutes of your life you'll never get back?

With a title like that, what did you expect?

I was hoping it would be an improvement over 2-Headed Shark Attack. Unfortunately, worse...much worse...
