The Bourne Legacy(2012)

The funny thing about reviews and when you hear them is how ultimately they are just as subjective as the art form they are trying to quantify. You'd think that someone who has dedicated their life to determining arts merrit scientifically would hold themselves and their reviews to the same standard. This isn't going anywhere but I just thought it was funny that of the 2 reviews I saw for this going in 1 my local newsaper lambasted it giving it a 1 star out of 5 and this other guy Harry Knowles said it was so much better then the Dark Knight Rises. Neither held true for me, this movie was definitely middle of the road all the way entertaining without rising to anything special completely empty calories and this was also true for the 6 people I went to the movie with for the comment " was alright." flew around in a big circle. Ultimately I think that is most movies, it takes something special to make a movie either bad or good there is so much money and time and energy put in to films nowadys that it takes something exceptional (like stupidity or genius or just plain luck ) to make a movie fall one way or another. So ultimately reviews are a waste of time and so right now I am wasting time and thus this is funny to me and so well worth my time.
