at least 6 in the case of fast and furious, the same movie every time they just add a new actor for each movie!

The first fast and the furious has practically nothing in common with the current movie.

Fast six was fucking awesome

Hangover 1 was very good, but overrated. Hangover 2 sucked, really as simple as I can state it. Perhaps if you never saw Hangover 1 it would seem fine, but it was just too similar. Hangover 3 had a funnier trailer than I expected it to, but I fully expect it to be lame.

I never saw a single Fast movie, but I have been meaning to catch up, or at least see 5 and 6.

Hangover 1 is much more fun and relatable. If you've done the Hangover in Las Vegas thing yourself... heh. That makes the movie more awesome in my view. The Fast franchise is just pure fun. Nothing better you can ask for.

Combination of M.Night (Seriously, who gave that hack a 130 million dollar movie) and the endless pushing of his son as a movie star.

Yeah M Night and Jaden certainly didn't help Will, but I think he's reached that inevitable stage where movie stars just take a step back from simply drawing on their name alone. He's still a good draw, he's just not the unblemished cash cow he once was.

There's another way to look at the disappointing $27 million that "After Earth" earned during its opening weekend: What would this film have grossed without Will Smith on the poster?

From the seeming last-minute press push (the high profile New York magazine cover story featuring Smith and his son and co-star Jaden didn't hit newsstands until five days before the film's release) to the late-stage release date change (six weeks ago, Sony moved "After Earth" from the more-competitive June 7 slot to May 31), "After Earth" has had the stench of a film that even the studio knew was bad. Here, by the way, is how Sony framed the "After Earth" debut in a press release about the opening on Sunday: "While we were expecting more domestically, we believe the film will perform strongly when we open overseas over the next few weeks."

It would be easy to write something snarky here about also believing in unicorns or Xenu, but Sony is probably right: Smith is a global box office star, and even past stumbles, like last year's "Men in Black 3," earned significantly more overseas than here in North America.

"Men in Black 3," it should be noted, is where the seeds for the disastrous "After Earth" opening were sewn. Despite the added benefit of 3D surcharges, that film earned just $179 million last summer, or $11 million less than "Men In Black 2" made 10 years prior. Adjust for inflation, however, and that gap explodes: "Men In Black 2" would have grossed $240 million in 2012 money. "Men In Black 3" was a hit because of the $445 million in international ticket sales, nearly double what its predecessor made. It goes to reason that "After Earth" could follow a similar trajectory, albeit with lower results across the board. (This thing will be lucky to do "Battleship" numbers in North America.)

Those troubling trends aside, Smith is a global star and will remain a global star until he can't open a movie as bad as "After Earth." The problem, however, is this: "After Earth" has become Smith's Oprah couch-jump. "Yeah, I'm very, very serious about systems supporting creative inspiration," Smith told New York when asked about the rumor that he alphabetized the family's laser disc collection.

It didn't have to be this way. As Grantland writer Alex Pappademas noted, Smith turned down what he felt was a supporting role in "Django Unchained" ... for what is a supporting role in "After Earth." Jaden's the lead here, something even director M. Night Shyamalan admitted was embedded in the film's marketing campaign. "I put Jaden just a bit ahead of Will [on the poster]," Shyamalan told Moviefone. "So you're getting that orientation that the movie is a kind of passing of the torch."

There's something admirable about Smith's desire to pass the torch of stardom to his 14-year-old son. Except audiences aren't embracing Jaden in the same way they did with Will. Young Will Smith -- the swaggering Fresh Prince, the guy who makes this look good -- was an overconfident underdog with parents who just didn't understand; Jaden's parents wanted to give him a blockbuster.

"I'm a student of patterns," Smith told New York. I wonder what he makes of the last two summers.
