Movie Jail relay race *UPDATE*

Last year Terrence from The Focused Filmographer and myself started the Movie Jail relay race. To refresh your minds:

It’s time to put some movie people in jail. The object is to give a prosecutor’s argument as to why these movie people belong in “Movie Jail” whether it be for violating the integrity of the content source of one their films, or being a sell-out, just making bad movies overall, getting worse as time goes on or not being in a good movie for many years.

The baton will be passed to another blogger who will have to do the following:

In order to free someone from Movie Jail they have to do 2 things
1 – Give a defense attorney argument defending the plaintiff
2 – Pay bail: the cost of which is another case for the court and a prosecutor’s argument against the actor/director of their choice that will replace the one set free.

There must always be 10 people in Movie Jail.

Terrence and myself jailed: M. Night Shyamalan, George Lucas, Clint Eastwood, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Cruise, Michael Cera, Robert De Niro, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, Sam Worthington and Kristen Stewart. Here you can find out why.

So who have been jailed and set free since?

    Fun seeing the changes! Someone REALLY needs to put Kristen Stewart back in jail! perhaps someone in the “wordpress” family will do it as it seems the “blogspot” family tends to not mind her. :)

        lol ;) I fully intend to not start a war. I hope that doesn’t happen. I just noticed there seems to be more love/tolerance for her in comment threads on blogspot as opposed to comment threads I seen on WP. Interesting observation. haha :)

      I think you may read my defense of her again or perhaps see something else than Twilight :) There are worse things in the world than Kristen.

        haha. While I enjoyed reading your defense Lady Sati I still think she should be there. :) There are indeed worse things in the world than her, but not many things worse than her acting. :D haha oh what fun. I think more people are siding with you though to be honest.
