Yes, yes, I'm back. (We'll save all of that for later, okay?) Anyway, Nikhat passed on the baton for this relay race to yours truly. The concept is simple:
Who's behind bars now?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 things1 – Give a defense attorney argument defending the plaintiff2 – 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.

Now who will be occupying Pacino's former cell? It's not easy to come up with a worthy suspect, I'll admit it. But it soon became obviously clear once I thought about it.
Your Honor, I charge Michael Bay for failing to significantly contribute to the world of cinema. (No wonder people think it's dying.) He shows no interest in anything apart from over-sexualizing women and blowing shit up. And his movies are crap. If that doesn't deserve jail time, I don't know what does.
Right, so who did this already?

I'm passing this on to Ruth over at "....let's be splendid about this...". I look forward to her choices.
