I have been so against the Annie remake, that in my opinion Will Smith initially bought for his daughter, Willow, who thankfully dropped out. Well, after seeing this picture that Cameron Diaz Tweeted of herself as Miss Hannigan, it makes me think the sun won’t come out tomorrow or day after and so on. So please don’t bet your bottom dollar on this movie, so that Will Smith will stop destroying our classics for his kids. Remember The Karate Kid that was nothing like the ’80s teenage drama. Or even though it was not a remake, who wants another After Earth? So let’s stop the madness now before we get After After Earth
And it came from the Smiths themselves, when the offspring said in the Screen Junkies Honest Trailer, “That sucked.” To which Will Smith responded by saying, “That is correct.”
Just when I thought After Earth couldn’t be any worse than I assumed it to be, this review makes Battlefield Earth look like masterpiece. Seriously we all knew the movie was awful and now we see that it is even worse than we imagined.
Hopefully this film will end Will Smith’s run of creating jobs for his kids. Something has to stop him before he destroys again.
We are still two years away from the sequel for Independence Day, and this weekend we got some news about the upcoming blockbuster. Director Roland Emmerich told The NY Daily News that Will Smith will NOT be in it. He said, “Will Smith can not come back because he’s too expensive, but he’d also be too much of a marquee name.” Then he added, “We have like maybe half of the people that you know would know from the first film (in the script) and the other half people who are new.” So who is guaranteed to come back? Here’s who he said would be returning, “I think some aliens will be back.”
Now back to Smith, when he did the first movie he was an eager actor who was on the rise. But then after a few huge movies, his ego took over and his movies went to sh!t. So when I read that he would not be in this sequel, I was excited because the movie that launched his film career has a good chance of doing as well as the original if not better. Well that is if it has a good script behind it. I mean a movie that is almost 2 decades in the making, has to be has good as the original just like the sequels to Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Indiana Jones 4. Right?
Maybe because I stopped paying attention to Will Smith in his movies after Men in Black II or maybe I just didn’t care enough; but I never realized how many weird noises he makes in his films? Well at least I didn’t until Screen Junkies cut together this compilation reel of the strange sounds he makes in them. And thanks to that, I have yet another reason not to see any more of his flicks because let’s be real when was the last time he make a good one?
So now we can add Will Smith’s noises to the other comp reels like Tom Cruise running and Shia LaBeaouf saying “NoNoNoNoNoNoNoNoNoNo” in almost all of their movies. Who else does what weird things in their films?
Will Smith is on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today with his son Jaden and Ellen asked him about purposely trying to embarrass his son as much as possible. He answered the daytime talk show host by telling her that he loves him and then he decided to show her how much by reaching over the couch and trying to kiss his little Karate Kid. As hard as Jaden tried to wiggle out of his dad’s embrace, he couldn’t. So when he accepted his fate, Will gave up and told Ellen “You know when you have kids; you love them and you are proud of them. You just wanna kiss them in the mouth sometimes.” Grossed out Jaden then said a lot. I don’t know what to say that, but I think we can all guess that is why Jaden is rumored to want to be emancipated when he turns 15 in less than two months.
Remember when Will Smith was the hottest actor out there and every movie he did blew you away? Well that was a long time ago and ever since he did Men in Black II his movies have either been a real snoozefests or just crap. Now it looks like his latest film After Earth will be like all the movies he has done in the last decade. So I want to know when he is going to make a movie like Independence Day again? And when will his son Jaden do a movie that his dad isn’t in or financed? And when will Hollywood stop letting M. Night Shyamalan makes movies? His first movie was good, but the rest have all sucked big time. Enough is enough!
So I guess you can tell by this post where I won’t be when this movie comes out on June 7th?
Even though Willow Smith has more money than you and me at age 11, does that mean she is old enough to wear shirt like that? It is not because it has Freddy Kruger (I have an issue with her wearing my favorite icon) on it, but where his mouth is placed. I mean is that appropriate for a preteen? If his face were higher up, I wouldn’t have a problem with it but it isn’t so I do.
Willow Smith made a name for herself (separate from her parents) with her song Whip My Hair, and now the 11 year old can no longer say that because she shaved her head. Now that she has a hairstyle just like her dad’s, she looks exactly like Will Smith. There is no doubting he is her father, not there was any doubt in the first place.
Will Smith gave us a little Christmas present this year by reuniting with most of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air cast. He Facebooked the above picture and said, “Got the Holiday season started right with a ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ reunion…there’s nothin’ like spending Holidays with fam! — with Tatyana Ali, Karyn Parsons, Alfonso Ribeiro and James Avery.” How cool is it to see them all together again! They still look the big family happy we knew as back when we got to know them back in 1990. Can you believe that show debuted over 21 years ago?
BTW since the Aunt Viv’s aren’t there, we will pretend those two guys bookending the picture are them and that mysterious guy is Geoffrey. That works, right?
After watching the trailer for Men in Black 3, I am not sure how I feel about it because it is the chemistry between Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones that makes it so enjoyable. So if he is not going to be in it the whole time, will it still be as good? Although having said that it is scary that Josh Brolin looks more like a young Tommy Lee Jones than he does his own father James. Doesn’t he?
So will I go see the movie when it comes out on May 25th, of course because I am hoping that Will Smith has another watchable movie to add to his resume. I don’t think I have liked anything he has done since MIB2.
