Because he isn't shit.
The bar has been soooooooooo lowered.
JJ does great work.
Green Lantern was a complete clusterfuck made by incompetent morons.
Because of movies like Green Lantern it's turned a fair producer like JJ into a fantastic producer.
Who made Green Lantern?
The only other thing he's done of note is some shitty Bond films and Zorro.
Zorro are equally also the worst movie ever made.
A friend came over a month back, she's a little retarded, thinks there's this bearded prig in the clouds granting wishes, but I say that I have over 12 thousand movies, that I have everything which she could ever want... She says she wants Zorro. I frown and admit that after 6 years of entrenched piracy that I do not have the Zorro movies because they're shit. Sure, I felt like less of a man because I couldn't pleasure her when she was challenging me, but what she wanted me to do, admit that I had, or to actually "own" The Mask of Zorro as part of my collection is despicably perverse and churlishly unnatural.
