Midweek Mouth-off: Dumb, Dumber and Dumberest

1 min read

Dear Ridley Scott, thank you for Prometheus. It is currently the best movie to gleefully discuss drunk.

From the most squeamish, non-procedural scientists in the galaxy; to a ball-busting, “I’m always prepared” career woman who fills her escape pod with all kinds of sharp, fragile breakables and a men-only surgical unit… From heroes who can only think to run forwards (not sideways) to escape a falling structure; to the film’s complete ignorance about female anatomy…

Really, the stupidity in all areas is headache-inducing.

So today we want to know what movies have really irritated you with their dumbness? What films went from great to awful in your mind when onscreen logic went out the window and you found yourself continually asking “But why don’t – ?”

Then again, if you’re someone who is happy to suspend your disbelief, and you refuse to let silliness hamper your viewing experience, also please let us know.
