Felix Hernandez, Million Dollar Baby
Oscar-worthy in every sense.
Michael Pineda, Avatar
The script is slightly unpolished, but you can look past that; the visual effects blow you away.
Jason Vargas, Major League II
On at times, off at times…the one thing you can’t deny: it has its moments.
Doug Fister, Major League III
Like Vargas, but with even more inconsistency.
Erik Bedard, Titanic
Face it. We’re looking at a sinking ship.
Around The Diamond
Miguel Olivo, Back To The Future II
Wait a minute…haven’t we seen this before?
Chris Gimenez, Anything with Kevin Bacon
This has average written all over it.
Justin Smoak, The Hangover
Most of us expected this level of greatness, though not everyone was sold. That being said, we’re only in the second scene of this flick and it already looks epic.
Adam Kennedy, Mean Girls
Soooooo much better than you initially thought it’d be.
Jack Wilson, Pirates of the Caribbean
Come on. I had to. Arrrrr.
Luis Rodriguez, Rudy
He tries so damn hard. You can’t help but root for him.
Brendan Ryan, Madea Goes To Jail
We’re getting tired of this sh*t. When’s it gonna stop? When can we get something better?
Chone Figgins, Battlefield Earth
Ridiculous investment. Huge expectations. Absolute, unadulterated dud.
(And yes, I realize that Shrek would have been the easy choice. But Shrek was a good film. Even if Chone does look like Donkey.)
Milton Bradley, Alice In Wonderland
All. Kinds. Of. Crazy.
Ryan Langerhans, The Proposal
Didn’t think you’d like it. Walked away with a little half-smile on your face.
Michael Saunders, Star Wars
You’re sitting there waiting for it to take off. You’ve heard good things. You know it has potential. But it’s really biding its time in the early going. Take off already!
Ichiro, The Naked Gun
You can’t deny it’s a little quirky, a little off at times. But damn if it doesn’t have some of the greatest moments you’ve ever paid witness to.
The Designated Hitter
Jack Cust, Vanilla Sky
You weren’t expecting much. And yet somehow, this is actually worse than you expected.
Aaron Laffey, Song of the South
Just so freakin’ whimsical. Mr. Bluebird’s hovering over his shoulder. And he may or may not have a black uncle named Remus.
Brandon League, The Ring
An adequate thriller. Start to finish, you never quite feel comfortable.
David Pauley, You’ve Got Mail
You know, I didn’t really want to watch it. But frankly, it wasn’t so bad.
Chris Ray, The Towering Inferno
One of the best disasters of all-time.
Tom Wilhelmsen, Half Baked
Jamey Wright, On Golden Pond
A story about old people surviving and sh*t. And doing it with remarkable aplomb, I might add.
David Aardsma, 50 First Dates
You happen to be flipping through channels and can’t find anything better on basic cable. So you end up sitting there, numbing your brain, thinking, Yeah, this will do for now.
Franklin Gutierrez, Inception
A little f**ked up in the middle.
