OK, Star Wars fans. quick question: which movie was worse, Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones?
See, Menace has the comedic stylings of Jar Jar Binks and obnoxious pre-teen Anakin Skywalker. Attack has a lot of half-assed romance and obnoxious post-teen Anakin Skywalker. I’d actually rather see Phantom Menace given the choice. At least that one had some pod racing.

This is why we can’t have nice movies. Let’s be honest–Jurassic World could have been directed by a banana wearing a wig and when the movie makes that much money that banana would get tons of lucrative offers thrown their way. Because when you have a decent cast reading a horrible script but you put in mother-loving dinosaurs then suddenly everyone rushes to the theater like they were giving away free anti-immigrant ice cream and you lived in Arizona. Jurassic World’s wig-wearing-banana was Colin Trevorrow who has exactly one non-dinosaur movie credit to his name, Safety Not Guaranteed. Which was an okay movie but nothing that you’d jump up and down over.
