Every time I see an ad for “Sully” I groan and announce that I wouldn’t see it for less than $500.
Five hundred bucks is my customary price for a film that sounds truly awful, at least by my very personal standards.
I’m sure Sully is technically well-made and acted, but who the fuck wants to watch Tom Hanks pretending to be an old man trying to land a plane for an hour and a half?
Challenged by the question of whether I think that Sully really rates as the worst movie out there, I decided to find out what else is big box office this week.
There’s another Blair Witch movie, which I would see for $200. I would close my eyes throughout but I feel this still counts as “seeing” it.
Bridget Jones’ Baby or whatever it’s called, $300. I would keep my eyes open and I would probably regret it. I don’t know who’s in it besides Renee Zellweger but $300 is my price.
There’s also “Snowden.” I’m gonna say $150, because I don’t want to see it but I’m unaware of anything annoying about it beyond its subject matter.
“Don’t Breathe” sounds too scary for me. I want to breathe. And I don’t like being told what to do. But for $300 I would cover my ears and shut my eyes.
What’s your price for Sully? And what movies have you seen lately without being paid?
