Reviews: Is After Earth the Worst Movie Ever Made?
Well, After Earth is finally out. The latest movie from Philadelphia-area filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan stars Will Smith and his son Jaden, and it seems like the critics aren’t very fond of it. (I saw it on Wednesday at an advance screening, and while I didn’t like it at all, it didn’t make me recoil).
