So the new movie The Box kicks off with the premise that a cash-strapped couple can get a million bucks... so long as they are willing to sacrifice a total stranger. Not a bad idea, but what if they asked some really important questions... you know, about TV and movies and things that really matter in the world. We put together a list of pop culture queries to test what you'd be willing to endure for a new Star Wars film, a Firefly reunion or all the answers to Lost. See our list here, then let us know what you would do.
Editor's Note: The Heath Ledger question in this feature originally referenced the actor's untimely passing in a manner that many readers interpreted as offensive, which is reflected in some of the comments below. In response, the question has since been changed to offend only Joel Schumacher.
No big blockbusters today, but a few entertaining comedies, a couple of interesting documentaries, and a couple of lackluster thrillers. And Erica Durance in what we can only assume is her finest role, given what we've seen of the others.
There are certain movies that we can tell are going to be bad just by watching the trailers, but sometimes circumstances (an insistent date, limited options, writing a review, etc.) dictate that we go see these movies anyway. When that happens, things can go one of two ways: either the movie is pleasantly surprising, or it is worse than you could have ever possibly imagined. The Box is unfortunately the latter.
