    Why no Lucy Dan. Who cares about 3rd sequel to a franchise you aren’t the audience for and don’t care for. You show us this by not understanding or at least acknowledging that the movie is tounge in cheek, and picking apart plot holes. Gee. I’m sure the same conversations are taking in high schools all over the world. You’re not 14 anymore Dan. Couldn’t you look at cinema in a more interesting way in 2014 and with a lifetime of movie watching as a fan.
    Come on Dan. Snap out of it. Wake up. Cold water on the face. Bath salts. Do whatever is needed to come alive and give us more than facts, figures and ridiculously boring breakdowns of movies you have no passion for.
    Come on, I know you have it in you. If I’m wrong, and you don’t, please throw in the towel.

      Harsh, dude. LUCY only opened on Thursday — two days after we recorded (but day before we uploaded). It was not a great week for movies but not a bad show, I thought. You can only work with what’s in front of you.

      Hopefully, you’ll find more interesting stuff coming up.

      Also, is Baxter Turner your real name? Cool.
