I never felt bad about all that Human Centipede coverage we inflicted on you all. I didn’t feel bad that time I wrote a recap in LOLspeak. And I never felt bad that I led many of you to believe that Sister Act was the greatest movie of our generation.
But this. This I feel bad about.
Here’s the trailer for Jack Black’s contemporary re-imagining of Gulliver’s Travels. It’s embarrassing, not just because it looks like an atrocious movie, but because it’s an atrocious movie based on very well respected classic literature. The point of Gulliver’s Travels wasn’t the lilliputians. The point was the satire, of which there is none in this movie.
In fact, the only reason I’m inflicting it upon you is because of the very brief glimpse of “Doctor Who’s” Catherine Tate. one of the many wasted talents here (see also: Emily Blunt, Amanda Peete, and Jason Segel). The only other silver lining here is that, after Year One and now this, Jack Black’s career has to be all but over. Right?
