Anyone who says You’ve Got Mail is part of the golden years of anyone’s career clearly has no idea what they’re talking about.
Tom Hanks’ best decade was the 1980s, not the 1990s. And even if you buy the absurd premise that Hanks peaked in the 1990s, how could you include You’ve Got Mail but leave out Joe Versus the Volcano (1990)? Or better yet, Philadelphia (1993)? I’m guessing whoever posted this probably isn’t aware there were any movies made before 1994.
Okay children I am only going to say this once so listen up, this is a satire, the main basis of this man’s joke is that Tom Hanks use to be an excellent actor but now his movie suck and the reasoning is that he died in the 9/11 attack and movie producers have been digitally recreating him to plug his name in terrible movies to make money.
Also I agree with Sensible Madness, this junior writer here missed his KEY era and named some.. pretty awful titles IMO.
oooh I don’t think so misanthropic4u. “satire?” That’s too strong a word. This is “shit”. Reading that made me sore. And not a “I pumped some hardcore iron” sore…more like “i just got fucked in the wrong orifice” kind of sore
you’ve got mail is a period piece???? I sincerely hope all this effort was an attempt at humor (albeit a poor attempt…cuz I just don’t get it). I refuse to believe that someone actually believes this to be true.
Really… you didnt find this in the least bit amusing? Anyone ever heard of absurdism? The art of taking a joke so far past what you expect to the point that it is funny again? Gah really? I found this exceptional…
Read some Fucking David Cross and learn to laugh a little
There is no reason why all of this can not be factually correct. In fact this is not the first time it’s happened. It’s not such a secret anymore that Clark Gable drowned with the Titanic and was replaced by a cardboard cutout for the rest of his career. We need to be aware of all the smoke & mirrors stuff, people.
Alright, I don’t know what is lamer, the fact that this made it to LB, or the fact that so many on here (and I applaud you lamebooksters nonetheless, intelligence levels are 10X’s that of FB) didn’t pick up on the fact that this is sarcasm. Satire. Not serious.
I do want a t-shirt now that says “The Tom Hanks is a Lie”
@ guttersnob, I don’t think anyone here believes this to be serious, everyone understands it’s a J.O.K.E… possibly apart from sheerterror99 and liketotallycool, however it’s a bit strong to use “so many” in relation to two people.
agreed with @guttersnob… I mean, really, isn’t it taking it a bit far to label him “a fucking douchebag” for a shitty attempt at a satire? The execution was poor, but there is a sort of humor in the idea of Tom Cruise being a lie…
