The End of the World Is No Excuse - Miss War

I am, obviously, totally aware that the apocalypse is nigh.  It's my JOB.  I get it.  But really, Hollywood, who told you that just because it's the end of the world you're allowed to get sloppy and stop making even half decent movies?  It sure wasn't a Horsewomen.

And yet, as far as the last month or so has to offer, pretty much everyone in Hollywood got the memo - plot? character? not. necessary.





Or even...

The latest offender?  Bruce Willis' latest - SURROGATES.  While this particular take on the popular human beings living through robots genre (not sure where everyone got this idea, virtual reality went out in the 90's everybody knows that) isn't nearly as attrocious as some (cough... GAMER), it's no gem. 

And WHY is it not a gem?  Where has the luster and potential that Mr. Willis (one of our favorites) brings to the table gone?  It's gone into that blackhole that SHOULD be plotting and character development.

Mr.'s Brancato and Ferris owe this Horsewoman a great Bruce Willis action flick.  And Hollywood?  Get your act together.  We're begging here.  When it takes the one two punch of Stephen Soderbergh and Matt Damon to make even a DECENT movie, this apocalypse is in a sorry state indeed.
