B-list movies

A few weeks ago we were watching all of the good movies that had been nominated for Oscars. We went through those in our Netflix queue fairly quickly. Now we're watching "hit" movies that we had no intention of seeing in the theater. These are the big-budget Hollywood movies that appeal to the masses, costing tens or hundreds of millions to make in hopes of capturing that bored teenager market who will spend $10 on a Friday/Saturday night because there's nothing else to do. Here's a quick rundown:
"Surrogates" - So it's kinda like real life Second Life? *YAWN*
"Jumper" - Did I miss the plot here? Oh! There wasn't one! My bad!
"Duplicity" - I had the plot figured out in 15 minutes. Pretty good "Oceans 11" type vibe, but I really don't give a crap about the Julia Roberts / Clive Owen love story. Alternative title:"Unfing around the world."
"Transformers II" - Oh boy! It's from Michael "Blow Shit Up" Bay! It's not saying much, but I liked it better than the 1st.
"GI Joe" - I made it better by MST3K'ing it with lots of Fensler Film quotes. Porkchop Sandwiches!
"10,000 BC" - It's like "Apocalypto" + "Stargate" + a whole lot of suck! At least I was happy to see that I was wrong in that they were not chased by dinosaurs. Giant carnivorous birds are MUCH more believable.
