This Week In Netflix

Fanboys (2008) Description from Netflix: They've waited patiently for years for the release of Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace. But when one of their own discovers he's terminally ill, a group of pals embarks on a road trip to Skywalker Ranch to steal the long-anticipated film. Sam Huntington, Chris Marquette, Dan Fogler, Jay Baruchel and Kristin Bell star in director Kyle Newman's labor of geek love. Star Wars alums Billy Dee Williams, Carrie Fisher and Ray Park make cameos.

This is a movie that is easy to show how bad direction can ruin a movie. You had a great cast, a decent enough plot and tons of money to do this. It took 2 years to get out to the theater. It was just incredibly bland and made me want to watch "Free Enterprise" a few times.

The Air I Breathe (2008) Description from Netflix: Kevin Bacon, Forest Whitaker, Brendan Fraser and Sarah Michelle Gellar co-star in this Jieho Lee-directed drama that mines four basic human emotions -- love, pleasure, sadness and joy -- for cinematic inspiration. A banker discovers true happiness, a mobster finds hope, a celebrity sees life lose its luster and a doctor wrestles with matters of the heart that can't be addressed within the confines of an operating room.

This movie was the suck. I made it 20 minutes and gave up. I read the description and still don't know what this movie is about.
