a new rating


Last night, my siblings and I rented Mysterious Island, because it's the Verne novel that helped inspire Myst, and it has Patrick Stewart and a giant squid on the front. (both of which are fairly cool) Turns out it is merly a coincidence that it as the same name as the Jules Verne novel, and no giant squid. The other actors were so bad that it offset Patrick Stewart's goodness. Plus most of the special effects were sub christian action movie quality.

So, in the spirit of Cockeyed Pranks, and to warn the people wandering through blcokbuster, I made this in photoshop for the back:

Before:


After:

Now I have to return it to blockbuster.

I think Patrick Stewart should stick to being either A) Captain Picard, or B) Ebeneezer Scrooge. At the risk of sounding crass, one wonders if it was a low point in his career when he signed on for this movie. Nonetheless, your "rating" is hilarious. Well done Stephen!

Oh dude.. thats so dissapointing. I was about to rent that because I own a ton of the other films that Hallmark Entertainment did (The Odyssey, Merlin, Gulliver's Travels - some of my favourites). And this one had Patrick Stewart - my favourite ST captain... how could it all go so wrong? :(

BTW - how did you know that Vern inspired Myst? Whats that just your observation?
