The trailer I saw this weekend removed any possibility of seeing this movie. It was basically every single rumor, joke, conspiracy theory, etc. of what's in the White House.

"I heard there are secret tunnels" *Cut to scene of them running through tunnels and explosions*
"What about the secret war room?" *Cut to scene of secret war room*
"Aren't there tennis and basketball courts here?" *Cut to scene of them driving through random courts*
"Can the president's limo really surive an RPG?" *Cut to limo suriving (and flying) after being hit by RPG*

What really did it though was the "No, the White House wouldn't explode like that. This isn't Independence Day" *Cut to "FROM THE DIRECTOR OF INDEPENDENCE DAY!"*

Mr. Coffee Nerves: If I want to watch "Die Hard" I'll watch "Die Hard."

I'm starting to worry about Roland Emmerich. If he decided to make a Victorian period drama about the peccadilloes of former ladies' maids attempting to raise their status through marriage the script would still read "FADE UP FROM BLACK: The White House Explodes!"


You just know he wants to do a War of 1812 movie where Dolly Madison (played by Jennifer Lawrence) runs out of  the burning White House with the Lansdowne portrait in her hands as the building explodes behind her.

Backdoor Nurses vol II and  Bootie Howser MD.  I mean cripes they were almost the exact same movie and they came out within like a week of each other.  Plus Backdoor nurses Vol II really wasn't anything more than Vol I. The didn't move the story line along very much. It was pretty much just a compliation of butt sex, and very few nurses,

White House Down just looks so unrealistic.  I mean... a black President?

Trailers I saw for White House Down were extremely bland, one sharknado away from a SyFy piece.

This looks like a the perfect movie to watch in the background on Netflix Instant while half-assing housework.

At least, thanks to Channing Tatum, somebody will always be there to give Vin Diesel some competition in that race for the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor Who Obviously Took His Name from a Chippendale's Dancer.

Foxx is still sitting in the rafters of Miami's arena. He can't come down until the movie makes $300MM.

Now I want to see an Emmerich-made Downton Abbey.

Maybe if it didn't look like a movie that would be perfect for MST3K it would have made some money.
