I expect good movies from Hollywood, and I sometimes get them.

That's what I'm saying: you expect good movies, while I expect crap.

1. isn't the title of the movie "Wild Wild West"? (no "The")

2. I saw this movie one time, the summer it was released, when I was 14 years old. I have great memories of it:  Two buddies and I snuck out of our summer camp (in upstate NY), and walked the 20 minutes down the road to the shittiest movie theater you ever saw, on Main Street in the tiny charming shithole of a town -- a Main Street where 3/4 of the stores are boarded up; tickets cost $4; and there were maybe one or two people with us in the theater -- which has since closed, re-opened, and closed again.

So as far as the movie-going experience, this was one of my favorite memories!

I loved the movie itself as well, but at the time, I had zero conception of a Western (and probably not much better conception of quality filmmaking either). So I have no clue what I would think of the movie if I saw it today. But it brings a smile to my face whenever I think of it. (one of my buddies would  hound me for years afterward, "Dude, why didn't we do that more often? Camp would have been much more fun!)

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.

Maybe. But that wasn't my point. Which was: my expectations are low, yours high.

Anyone familiar with WWW's reputation isn't likely to have "high expectations."

Will Smith is one of the worst things to ever happen to movies and this piece of shit perfectly sums up everything horrible in modern films.  Film schools need to study this turd and teach their students on what not to do.
