You have to understand that what made Greg an unlikable character in the first movie was the fact that he was jealous that everyone in school noticed Rowley's broken hand and Rowley became very popular, much to Greg's dismay. Rowley's popularity grows when he beats Greg to become the school paper's cartoonist. Greg and Rowley's friendship falls apart after Greg allows Rowley to take the blame for a mistake Greg made during Safety Patrol due to his jealously.
In his first year of middle school, Greg leans that the sin of his pride and jealously destroyed his friendship with Rowley but he learned that his redemption and forgiveness fixed it and made him a more wiser and likeable hero. This is exactly what Peter Parker learned in Spider-Man 3.
I don't hate Kevin James. I love Paul Blart The Mall Cop and I liked Hotel Transylvania but I hated the fact that Zookeeper totally ripped off The Night At The Museum 1 and no lawsuit from writters Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant appeared.
By the way as much as I love the Focker trilogy, Ben Stiller said in an interview that we won't be meeting them for a fourth time ever again. Robert De Niro has said his dislike of that movie during his Lifetime Achievement Award speech at the Golden Globes 2 years ago, he said, "I was very, very moved and gratified when you made the announcement of this award two months ago, well before you had a chance to review Little Fockers."
I think what makes these hysterical Night At The Museum movies successful is that fact that the stories are good, funny and informative so kids can learn about history in an entertaining way and Ben Stiller and the rest of the wonderful cast put a lot of their own creativity and improvisation into the good screenplay so that makes the movies better and more fun to watch.
The only way these movies would be bland and mediocre is if Kevin James had the lead role.
Thanks for defending the spill crew on their review of "Armour". I wasn't surprised the crew found the movie dull, I've seen a few Michael Haneke movies (Cashe and Funny Games) and have always been frustrated by their glacial story pacing. I would have defended their viewpoint (one with which I would have probably agreed) in the comments section, but you already did so, and you did a better job of it that I would have.
About vampire films: disagree with them mostly sucking
Also even without inflation of the dollar Interview with a vampire and Dracula still don't touch a single twilight film but move up to 5 and 6 respectively. The lost boys doesn't even crack the top 10 after factoring in inflation. the twilight films are still the highest grossing box office vampire movies after adjustment. Which is a sad thing to hear.
Hey, man. I saw you commented on the Atlanta Spillios discussion on "Spillios Assemble". Megatron rox and I have started a "team" to go see "The Avengers" and we need at least one more member. Are you interested in joining our team?
