    @mieko-siede I get that people hate Uwe Boll is complete and utter trash to be sure but at least I always know what I am getting with Uwe Boll. AFter one movie I knew what he was...a comedian. These other two have time and again put out movies that have fooled me with good previews and the hint of interesting stories only to have the rug pulled out from under me. I feel ripped off and lied to. Uwe Boll...well, there is no doubt what you are getting when you see one of his comedies.

    @skywise lol! Well I'm glad we're on the same page. As far as directors I can't subject myself to it would have to be three. The first of them being Uwe Boll followed by M. Night and then Paul W.S. Anderson.

    @narrator@bawnian-dexeus Im almost certain that you would be be able to guess number two in 3 guesses or less but for the sake of getting to the point, Paul W. S. Anderson is the correct answer.

    And reading @mieko-siede comment right below made me laugh beacuse I was thinking the exact same thing.

    @undeadslayer4 Sorry, I wasn't covering the spectrum. I was only making comparisons to Armageddon and Deep Impact and what I can only speculate as to the success or failure between the titles Oblivion and After Earth. I'm not the biggest Will Smith fan. I've been entertained by a few of his movies but I don't regard him as one of the top caliber performers. I have no regard for the Resident Evil films. But if we were having that conversation, I understand your point of view.

    As far as I'm concerned, M.Night simply points and shoots more in this addition to his resume than being the chief of the script

    Years ago I offended an old friend who was trying to open up to me but I put my foot in my mouth.

    lately I have been watch Will's older films and have been enjoying them. It's his newer films that seem to put me off him, I find that he's lost his spark.
    Early this year or was it last year that he stated he watched one of his older films was was horrified by the performance. I beg to differ since I'm finding he's getting worse.

    @undeadslayer4 I am Legend was better than what? And what is the reference to Resident Evil? We're talking about totally different movies.

    @writer220 I doubt it has anything to do with control. It appears more to me that he's a man that has the means to support whatever endeavors they choose whether they succeed or fail at it they have the opportunity for exposure. I'd be willing to bet that beneath the surface they have other aspirations that will lead them out of the Hollywood lime light in the future as they embark upon them. And, if that's indeed where they choose to stay, they have the exposure that can open the right doors for them should they stay on the right path.

    @narrator Though I enjoyed both films feeling they equally shared some strong points, I liked the overall grit and feel to Armageddon. Although I appreciated that with Deep Impact they illustrated the devastation of the people having nowhere to hide being forced to face their inevitable fates. They were forced to make peace with where their lives had led and cling to the intangible hope that there was a chance yet for the rest of the world. But Armageddon had a story that dealt very intimately with the lives of these people asked to make the ultimate sacrifice if needed for the rest of mankind to live on. The relationships and build up toward their David going to slay Goliath was just more compelling to me. A father who loved his daughter so much that he'd give his life for her to have all she wanted, including the man she loved...it was less about our salvation and more about the lengths a parent would travel to spare their child pain. They all had selfish motives, but it was those motives that got the job done.

    @mieko-siede Well said. Out of curiosity, which was the better asteroid film to you?

    It has the mechanics to be compelling. The theme isn't exactly new and the scope has its mediocrity. But there are glints of something that could make this at least interesting to watch. I wouldn't exactly compare it to Avatar. And it offers an alternative view of the post apocalypse. There are factors that work heavily against it, M. Night being one of them. He has the ability to conceptualize but not the follow through a grand theme needs to carry it. Another factor is that it has to compete with Oblivion that shares a similar theme. It won't be because of Tom Cruise or the Smith duo that one or the other succeeds, but the overall quality of either film. It's like Deep Impact and Armageddon, two similarly themed films, one of them great for the box office, the other was great for a late evening at home...both had their moments of compelling feats. I would lean toward Oblivion being the film that would draw the acclaim while After Earth would be a good feature on a late night evening of the weekend on the couch. I'll still watch it out of curiosity to see where it goes.

    If this film featured Will Smith along with another young actor other than his Son, i would have high hopes, but this film can not run on the steam of its a duo action feature, look what Daddy and Son can do. Smith is both capable and thoughtful, a strong performer, and by this you would hope this would rub of on little old Jaden, but its clear all he can do is pout. This being a Shyamalan film, it gives it another lining and coating of mysticism and power, and negativity due to his vast outings, since The Village, all his films have gone down hill!
