Sure. I wasn't saying his movies weren't popular. I was pointing out that he's put his name on crap way worse than The Last Ship. Totally different points. Quality and box office totals are seldom...

BWAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Hilarious. I was reading your post like it was a serious criticism until I got to that line. Then I realized your entire post must have been very subtle sarcasm. I mean, Michael...

I couldn't get past the fact that they've got enough explosives to bring down a building, but they don't just use that to blow up the fence post and its accompanying tether in one big boom. No...

Hmmmmm, what was the name of that other Greg Beeman show that had too many story-lines with too many characters to make much sense? Give me a minute, it will come to me....
