You sound like a robot - "Need entertainment. Watch movie. Entertainment need satisfied"
I agree that some of those movies weren't "great" movies, but they certainly were great movies. Some times we just need some action and some dumb fun to see some explosions. Suspension of disbelief is important for many of these movies.
Sorry, I missed the part in the OP where he asked for the "best waste of time movies of the last decade". I thought he said "best" movies.

The class of "Action packed bad movies for the attention deficit? The movies I mentioned were pure bubble gum at best, and in the case of Dark Knight, they just sucked.

And the Bourne Identity is not accurate and had plot discontunities?!?! No way! Somebody tell James Bond!
Its the movies, relax and have fun killer!
I don't get the "there's worse movies" analogy. See my first post above. Surely there have to be better movies in the last decade.

NOW, we're talking about a good movie. Very good character development. Plus the moviemaker toys with the viewer and seduces them into liking the character and enjoying a fairly pedestrian movie.
