Movie Jail Relay Race
First off, a big “thank you” to Chris @ Filmhipster for passing the baton to me on this peculiar, virtual relay race.
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.
The current inmates in Movie Jail are:
The Participants (so far):
11. Aziza’s Picks

I chose to free:
This will not be a popular choice, I know. And I have said before that Cowboys and Aliens (which he wrote) is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. But I just can’t let one of the men responsible for Lost to be in jail. Prometheus had plotholes the size of the Nostromo, but it was also one of the most enjoyable movies of 2012 (not my favorite of the year, but definitely the one I’ve seen the most). Star Trek: Into Darkness looks pretty solid. Plus, his tweets are funny. So there.
My choice for imprisonment is:
It pains me to stick Anna Faris in jail, it really does. The woman is hilarious and very pretty. She should be a huge star. But she’ll never be one because she’s hell-bent on starring in the worst tripe imaginable. Aside from Brokeback Mountain and Lost in Translation (bit parts in both of them), I dare you to name one genuinely good movie she’s been in. Nothing? Exactly. She’s the epitome of bad choices. So long, Anna Faris. You had your chance.
