I cannot help but think of this show when I see the trailers.

The moment I saw the trailer I could think of nothing but Good vs Evil. God I loved that show!

I actually liked RIPD. Sure it was a MIB rip off but Jeff Bridges was funny and it was an amusing story.

Saw it, wow, just wow it's over the top and grating in many places.

ryan reynolds stunk, but the worst part was the abysmal graphics. Really poor quality.

They stole a couple of concepts from Dead Like Me too.

Haven't seen it yet, but the trailer reminded me of Reaper.

G vs E was a fun show. Plus it had Deacon Jones (RIP)

This movie is such a bust that it made people forget about the Lone Ranger and After Earth. My 11 year old daughter saw it and thought it was "okay". Hardly a resounding endorsement.

Huh, I like Jeff Bridges and planned to check this out, but it doesn't look like they even bothered giving it a UK release,

They did show the trailer in one of the AMC's in the UK (last saturday in fact), but yeah, there's no mention of a release date on the AMC site for the UK.

In my honest opinion, it didn't suck as bad as I thought it would.
