Yes, I have seen Skyscraper. I saw it a couple of weeks ago, and muscle man Dwayne Johnson was trying his darnest to make me believe I wasn't looking at expensive pixel porn made in a computer but, no... Pokémon it was from beginning to end — high-altitude (but not really) Pokémon. There's something about green screen and CGI that makes us want to sit back and chew on that overpriced popcorn. There was something about this movie that made me completely forget I had overpriced popcorn to chew on. And I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that Tom Cruise is the only real action hero to be admired on the big screen today. Did I mention that James Bond can eat his own heart out? I wouldn't be surprised if he was sitting in the back, sweaty hands clinging to a glass of Martini. I mean, great as some of those movies may be, you just know when a stuntman is taking over the hard work while Daniel Craig is enjoying his pretzels in his trailer, and you just know that this is Bond in front of a green screen. But Tom, that crazy guy, is never shaken. He is never stirred. No, sir.
Oh yes, it's also a very beautifully shot movie. Great editing. Great action. Great score, too. It's all vvvvvvery impressive. But... Tom is here to save the day! And you'd better bring a parachute. That guy must have Pokémon for breakfast.
