[Overheard at PopWatch HQ today — if you’re planning to see Poseidon this weekend, you might want to skip this item.]
Editor1 (1:41:11 PM): hey, you saw Poseidon, right?
Editor2 (1:41:21 PM): yep
Editor1 (1:41:34 PM): did we discuss how only the white people live?
Editor2 (1:41:42 PM): OMG…i KNOW
Editor2 (1:41:57 PM): that Freddy Rodriguez scene was HORRIBLE
Editor2 (1:42:07 PM): “Shake him off! Shake him off!”
Editor1 (1:42:09 PM): don’t even get me started. I was aghast
Editor2 (1:42:15 PM): after he HELPED THEM FIND A WAY OUT
Editor1 (1:42:35 PM): it’s like, “Let him go! He’s only a Latino worker!”
Editor2 (1:42:40 PM): tot
Editor2 (1:42:52 PM): that movie was SO BAD
(more commentary after the jump…)
Editor1 (1:43:00 PM): and then when they killed the only other Latina in the cast, I was like, “REALLY?”
Editor2 (1:43:09 PM): seriously
Editor1(1:43:15 PM): plus, the only black person on board leads the rest ofthe ship to their DEATHS. and the women are all total baggage…not oneof them helped with ANYTHING.
Editor1 (1:43:43 PM): it was so appallingly retro, it might as well have said directed by The Man
Editor2 (1:44:01 PM): and that damn stupid kid
Editor1 (1:44:12 PM): UGH! I wanted that kid to DIE
Editor1 (1:44:20 PM): that would’ve redeemed the whole movie if he died
Editor2 (1:44:26 PM): tot
Editor2 (1:44:35 PM): what a little jerk he was
Editor1 (1:44:59 PM): and as if a 9-year-old wouldn’t be clinging to his mommy in TERROR. nope, he’s off “exploring”
Editor2 (1:45:31 PM): my favorite lines: “How did you get in there?” “I don’t know! But the water’s rising!”
Editor2 (1:45:58 PM): I was thinking, “But wait: How DID he get in there?
Editor2 (1:46:05 PM): he was like inside a cage!
Editor1 (1:46:16 PM): where he belonged, but still…so stoopid.
Editor2 (1:47:05 PM): amen to that.
