I spent the summer of 2000 in the dive bar of multiplexes

As far as movies went, the summer of 2000 was a season of disappointment. The big-studio flops included, but were not limited to: Battlefield Earth, Roland Emmerich's The Patriot, the Wesley Snipes actioner The Art of War, Coyote Ugly (Jerry Bruckheimer's misbegotten attempt at a feminist statement), Paul Verhoeven's Hollow Man (though, unlike any of the other movies listed here, that one has gotten better with age), and a couple of flat children's features (Titan A.E. and The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle).
