There are a lot of reasons to dislike a movie. Perhaps the story doesn’t appeal to you. Maybe the performances fall flat or the visuals are uninteresting. Maybe you resent how a beloved character or franchise was treated.

But all of those reasons have decisions behind them. Whether you agree or not, the filmmakers involved have had a distinct idea with regards to what they want the film to be. That doesn’t mean it’s a GOOD film, but at least it knows what it is.

Something like “The Mountain Between Us” is something altogether different – and much worse.

‘Collateral Beauty’ pretty terrible

Once upon a time, Will Smith was one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood, part of that small cadre of actors who could bring big box office through little more than the virtue of their name. Will Smith was one of those guys.

Sadly, he is definitely not that guy anymore.

Bear of a name draws criticism

On Dec. 7 of this past year, Kate Winslet and husband, Ned Rocknroll, welcomed their beautiful baby boy, Bear Winslet, into the world.  Naturally, the majority of the population seemed to find some sort of issue.  

This isn't anything new. In recent years, the general public has always found something to complain about when it comes to celebrity baby names. 'Bear' isn't even the most unique one. For example, Kim and Kanye named their baby girl North, making her name North West. Holly Madison named her daughter Rainbow Aurora. Chef Jamie Oliver and his wife, Jools, named their four children Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow and Buddy Bear Maurice. Magician Penn Jillette named his son Zolten, and his daughter Moxie Crimefighter. Nicholas Cage named his son Kal-El after Superman's kryptonian name. Hell, Racheal Griffiths named her son Banjo in 2007.
