Priest (reviewed here) is one of those movies that is objectively a junk pile yet that I would happily watch again if it showed up on my TV next month. That’s probably because of its total shallowness: it’s the kind of movie that makes zero demands on your attention. Its world is just sort of there, a mix of stuff we’ve already seen and stuff that feels like we’ve already seen it. Same deal with the characters. Paul Bettany (who I like) kicks ass and has a tragic past. Karl Urban (who I also like) just wants to ruin everything. And chew the occasional piece of dust-colored scenery. I think some other people showed up at some point, but who can be sure.

Actually, now that I’m thinking about all this, I don’t really want to see Priest again.
