Half in the Bag: 2014 Movie Catch-up part 1

September 23, 2014899 Comments

Mike and Jay discuss some of the movies that they’ve seen this year that haven’t been previously talked about on Half in the Bag. The conversation felt so exhaustive that it’s been split into two parts.

    That moment when you refresh Reddlemiddins.com and see a new video has been posted.

  • Timic83

    1am for fuck sake i cant sleep now…

  • Stupid Wizard

    I CLAIM THESE COMMENTS IN THE NAME OF RICH EVANS!

  • Mr.Logical

    When’s the next Plinkett review!!!!????

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Well, that was anticlimactic. What kind of disjointed storytelling is this? First, they don’t follow up the thing with the evil lady and the alternate future Mikes and Jays, now this. I come here for the plot!

  • HNSZ

    Why do I get so giddy when I find out a new HitB has come out?

  • This is one of the rare moments where I completely disagree with a Mike & Jay film critique, but… I fucking loved Sin City 2. Unlike Jay I did want to go revisit that world, and it felt pretty seamless despite the years in between. It was more of the same, yeah, but I loved the first one and wanted more, so it made me pretty happy.

  • Disqus Dikus

    Fuck yes. Much obliged for this sweet half in the bag fix. I’ve been battling with a severe case of movie withdrawal for the past few weeks.

  • RPK

    Good job guys. Very funny HITB!

  • Disqus Dikus

    Mind the you. You enjoyed it. You, and very few others.

    To me, this was an “Eva Green titty shots, the movie” with stuff that did not fit in the first one as filler. Largely good cast that was given little to do or say. And it was very little there to engage me and make me care about what was going on on the screen besides tits, ass and random goons getting blown to pieces.

  • Daniel Nguyen-Phuoc

    Was actually going to see Snowpiercer with friends later. Nice that you recommended it.

  • Dr. Blake Downs

    Wait, if both of you guys were clinically dead for 6 minutes, how did you regain consci… aww fuck it!

  • Fred Frink

    Why does blip seek never work properly? Is there a decent alternative?

    Also, i would buy a RLM dog bark gun.

  • No

    This was an awkward episode.

  • To Tipota To Tipota

    The main character’s friend in Blue Ruin is Buzz from Home Alone. I thought that was a nod to the setting-up-traps, fortifying the house, waiting for the bad guys that also occurs in Blue Ruin.

  • Robby

    Why are you speaking? Unless you have gifs for us, we’d like you to leave now.

  • Mike B

    It’s like those movies these hacks review. Or the pornos.

  • Magic in the Moonlight might be a good movie for the elderly, but they should watch it while holding on to their kitchen counter.

  • Mike B

    Snowpiercer was great. The premise don’t make a lick of sense. And it’s downright surreal at moments. But when the story and characters is told this interestingly, that does not hinder the overall enjoyment at all.
    Good to know that Jay liked it. Then again considering how Snowpiercer plays out and the other dark movies he likes, I guess that does not surprise much.

  • Lat

    Okay so where the fuck is part two. Don’t you know how impatient your fan base is? For fuck’s sake.

  • Michael Collins

    HitB is 100% better than anything else these hack frauds produce, love it.

    Plinket reviews are the exception..

  • G. Xiong

    Another good “Eva Green titty shots, the movie” is 300: Rise of an Empire, the “Eva Green angry sex battle, the movie” movie..

  • Alex

    Yeah, Snowpiercer is great. It’s Chris Evans’ best role yet.

  • Mr.Vomica

    I’ve sacrificed my first-born and half a nutsack to Beelzebub and my wax statue of Rich Evans like you said Mike – can I get my Plinkett reviews or do I have to sacrifice the remaining nutsack and children?

  • G. Xiong

    Blue Ruin and Snowpiercer, totally fantastic movies. Babies taste the best!

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    The same reason heroin addicts get excited when their dealer comes around.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I had to look and see if Robert Rodriguez really directed Sharkboy and Lavagirl. No wonder you guys are so dead inside.

  • Mr.Vomica

    But just like in The Happening, the true danger are the plants.

  • Not much to gif in this episode, but I can understand how my speaking would make you uncomfortable. I’d like to maintain our graphic image format relationship as well.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    This Jim guy is such a bore. He doesn’t have anything interesting to say he doesn’t want to be there. Those saying he’s just being ‘deadpan’, I’m pretty sure MST3K did that first!

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    It’s the only time we socialize with the outside world? …

  • Fartastic

    “Jay, do you have some kind of problem?”

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    It’ll be out on Thursday, September 25th.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    If you think Sharkboy and Lavagirl is bad, try his other movie called Shorts. ¡Jesucristo! I can’t understand why it took so long for people to realize how bad he’s always been.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    And by Thursday, September 25th, I mean Thursday, September 25th, 2064.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    That’s unfair because it assumes that everyone that might watch Magic in the Moonlight has access to a kitchen counter.

  • HNSZ

    I ask myself that question so many times. My best guess is that it’s not a bug but that it is caused by a technicality that has to do with the system that has to prevent us or hacks from skipping over ads.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    It’s like calling Aerosmith some hard rock band, and then finding out they did the soundtrack for The Rugrats Movie.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I rarely have blip act up weird on me, but today it was 10 minutes into the episode and it jumped to the Careboars. 🙂

  • HNSZ

    I have a feeling he may top that performance with his upcoming movie: Space Cop. What? Oh you said Chris!

  • Daniel Nguyen-Phuoc

    Someone should Tweet Chris Evans about showing up for Space Cop.

  • Daniel Nguyen-Phuoc

    “To be Continued”

  • Carlo Luigi DelPizzo

    “Get off your lazy fucking ass and give us what we want you fat homo. No one cares about Half in the Bag!” …. Just kidding. Half in the Bag is my favourite!! 🙂

  • Jillian

    First an episode of Best of the Worst and now a new Half in the Bag! You guys are spoiling us. What did we do to earn such generosity?

    (On second thought, I don’t wish to know. I’m just happy to get my fix.)

  • Daniel Nguyen-Phuoc

    The closest thing to socialising is during a livestream because they might actually read one of our questions, thus creating a back and forth interaction. Sort of.

  • Daniel Nguyen-Phuoc

    Didn’t he also direct the Spykids movies? I mean, he makes a lot of schlock, and some of it is great and some of it is garbage…

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Yay! It’s Careboars are back!
    Where’s part two, you fucks?

    I really want to see Enemy now. I wasn’t aware of it before. I’ve been also meaning to see Snowpiercer but I’m not sure if it’s in the theaters anymore…

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I meant with other commenters on here.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    You get to see boobies in Enemy! 😀

    But yeah, the ending is kinda fucked. The movie starts out a bit weird and surreal, but it then gets into a decent groove and I dug it.

  • First thing’s first, I’m the realest
    Drop this and let the whole world feel it

  • Domo_Konnichiwa
  • JohnBigbooty

    Snowpiercer was pretty good. I didn’t care for the very end, but the movement through the various stages of the train was interesting, and Tilda Swinton’s dark, comic character was unexpected.

    Enemy was excellent. Really keeps you intrigued. It’s pretty low key, but not boring at all because the whole movie is discovery, in almost every scene. Atmosphere comes along for the ride, not as a substitute for content. One of the top mind bender’s in recent years. Definitely one of the freakiest endings.

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    I’m still waiting on the resolution of the creepy doll that went missing in last year’s summer movie catch up!

  • WrongWithYourFace

    As someone who didn’t see the first film and didn’t know exactly what to expect other than the visual style, the lack of a proper plot bothered me. I expected to see the little stories tie into each other somehow, which didn’t happen. And the characters weren’t very interesting either, except for Johnny, who saved the movie a bit for me.
    In the end I just decided to watch it as an aesthetic experience, even though some of the effects looked really bad. Like when they were riding the motorbikes towards the end. It looked like they were sitting on green screen boxes instead of actual bikes, which wouldn’t surprise me.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    Mike Stoklasa: “I’m sorry Toronto”

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    They did this just so Plinkett could say “Part 2.”

    If they don’t do that, though, then unsubscribe.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    *Continuted.

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    HitB is the meat and potatoes, essential to life and sustenance; BotW is the dessert, it’s a nice treat but you don’t want too much; and Plinkett reviews are like Thanksgiving dinner.

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    And quick cuts is like sneaking some candy while your parents aren’t looking.

  • The only thing I really didn’t like was a bit of over-use of Katie’s Bar. There was even one line like “there’s a bar on every street in Sin City”, but Katie’s is the only one we see, and the over-use made it a little less of a fun setting and more like a waiting room for a story to happen.

    Other than that, I fucking love the character of Marv, and this just felt like getting to hang out with him more, which is all I really wanted out of it.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    And if you wanted to see CPR done on Eva Green, there’s Casino Royale.

  • Did Nightcrawler get renamed to Enemy? Or are they two different movies staring Jake Gyllenhaal?

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    As Rich Evans would say, adorable.

  • Adzl33t

    Review Boxtrolls, you guys never review animated movies on this show, you give less than a shit than the Oscars when it comes to animation

  • DragonQuestIV

  • Conquerbeard

  • Fartastic

    I’d like to see Chris Evans play Space Cop in the intro: During an attempt to kill Hitler, he falls into the freezing ocean; 70 years later, he gets thawed up, all bloated and slightly retarded due to brain damage as one would expect under such conditions.

  • David

    The “Ed Harris explains the world” thing isn’t just from The Truman Show, it’s a classic sci-fi/dystopian trope/cliche. Think O’Brien in 1984 or Mustapha Mond in Brave New World.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    He hasn’t recovered from Mike insulting Toronto, the capital of Canada, in this episode.

  • Fartastic

    That’s why they weren’t able to give you the actual spoiler from “The Sixth Sense”.

  • And Animated Plinkett is the emetic.

    I kid, I kid. Luv ya, Shawn.

  • jaymanxyz2

    Can’t watch the episode at the moment…but judging from the thumbnail, they’re…dead? How can they review movies now?

  • HITB is like Donnie & Marie. BOTW is like The Six-Million-Dollar Man. I’m a BOTW man, myself.

    Oh, I just dated myself horribly.

  • HNSZ

    Verhoeven is doing Dutch language movies and has said to be aiming for that in the coming years.

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    I was anticipating that too. I have said it out loud in his voice when the title card came up but it never happened… :/

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    I long for the day you guys use another video host instead of blip. Blip is so goddamn bad.It won’t let me jump to any part of the video past 3:20.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Yes. The first Spy Kids, was charming, more or less. The other two… wait… no, THREE (?!!), he made three more of those, not really. I can’t understand why, but I’ve seen bits and pieces of all these crappy Robert Rodriguez movies for kids.

  • Lando

    I was actually one of the people waiting to see TUSK : )

    The only way I know to recommend it is this:

    The plot is MISERY meets HUMAN CENTIPEDE…

    Tonally, though, if you can enjoy a movie like THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2, TUSK is right up your alley.

    I still wish HITB would’ve reviewed it as well as THE ZERO THEOREM since they’re both low(er) budget films that seem to be (I haven’t seen TZT) ludicrously gonzo.

    I’ll take my RLM how I can get it, though!

  • Guest

    Fun

  • Adzl33t

    I read the comic

  • I am really hoping to see a review of Under The Skin in part 2. I for one enjoyed being hit over the head by the blatant Kubrik worship. Also alien Scarlett Johansson finding her pussy was great.

  • Kirke

    I was meant to see Snowpiercer but forgot about it. I’m not sure if it was out in UK.
    Speaking of UK, Pride is truly excellent, seen it twice, would recommend.

  • Sean Lombard

    *spoiler warning for Snowpiercer* I did not like Snowpiercer at all. I thought the whole message of the movie about class warfare was heavy-handed and at times laughably bad. The lower class section was well done aesthetically, but the upper class sections, like the classroom, were so over-the-top it was like watching a Dr. Seuss movie.

    That one henchman takes a beating that would have killed a person a few times over but keeps getting up and has gun skills rivaling people from The Matrix, then the train crashes quite spectacularly and yet a couple of people actually survived? The ending only made me think “That polar bear is totally going to eat them, so bye-bye humanity.”

    Every character is a trope we’ve seen in movies a million times before, like ‘The Reluctant Hero’ and ‘The Wise Old Sage’ and ‘The Quiet Badass’ (ripped quite directly from Oldboy, btw) to the point where no character is in any way original or interesting. Overall, I thought it was pretty ridiculous and asks the audience to suspend their disbelief far too often to be enjoyable.

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    Mike and Jay split this into 2 parts because they’re rushing to 100 episodes so they can finally get syndicated.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    The Dreamers is another one, this isn’t a short list.

  • Fuck Me I’m January

    Oh boy. Looks like we got another tourette’s capitalizer.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    Bauman has no concept of releasing new stuff at the right time to attract the most traffic, its just whenever they’re sober enough to remember.

  • Ugh

    I went to Toronto years ago, when asked, all I could say about the city itself was concrete, concrete and yeah concrete. Plants some trees, throw up some paint and install some siding you hack fucks. Lipstick that pig. Glad to hear people agree with me.

  • Ugh

    Is this a bait comment, are you doing a thing to help spot Canadians? Cause you should know, us in the West don’t give a damn about them Easterners. Canada’s Capital, Toronto it is.

  • Ugh

    It’s funny, I think I know what Jim had in mind when he was reviewing dancing grannies. Old people in old people homes with no personal kitchens. It’s a habitat with no kitchen, not a house. I’m just gonna assume this is right. This is not a lie.

    Missed “Enemy” when it came out, sadly. It looked like my kind of flick, and the Lightning Fast boys confirmed it.

    It’s nice to see a new Half in the Bag, but I was hoping they would be tearing apart the Expendables 3.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I couldn’t get past 12 seconds. You win!

  • Ugh

    That would require them to go and see it, and I have my doubts that had a snowball’s chance in hell of happening. Personally, if there is a number in the title, I’m skipping it, enough is enough.

  • kledynk

    You can’t say Magic in the Moonlight was good. It was a fcking disaster
    of a movie. The longer I think about this movie, the worse it gets in my
    head. It had this existential part slapped together with a poorly
    executed love story. It was all over the place. The motivatons of the
    characters were superficial and not rooted enough in the story. The
    pacing was shitty. At some point I thought that the movie was about to
    end, but no, it went on to conclude this unbelievable love story, that
    was put there only for the sake of getting the movie labelled as a
    romantic comedy. It was just bad. Very bad.

  • Palpatine

    Rob Ford looks like Boss Nass. Is he-sa taking a dump-a in his pants-a?

    Given that both Jay and Mike liked Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, I was always curious to see what they thought of The World’s End. I guess the world will never know.

  • whip

    Good god, the blip player is AWFUL. I want to skip back a part to re watch something, and the whole damn thing started over, and no amount of clicking in the progress bar will move it back to where it was. Then I refreshed the page, and now the video doesn’t load.

    Thanks for the reccomendations, guys. I’ve just watched Enemy, and I’m afraid I have to take my brain medicine. Lots of Lynch in this one, with the doppleganger theme, and of course, the use of creepy ambient noise. The ending was a bit lame though, mindfuck in a bad way. I’ll have to watch it a couple of times again, just like Lost Highway

  • That ending was abrupt.

    They’re written that way. It’s like poetry. Part 2 should rhyme beautifully.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    My guess would be, that if they really liked the other two, they must think The World’s End was okay, but had less laughs than the others. There seems to be a lot of people around the interwebz that hate The World’s End, who knows why. Some even prefer This Is The End, which I can’t comment on, because a movie with Seth Rogen, James Franco and Danny McBride is more than I can handle.

  • It was a based off a comic book and directed by a Korean famous for mixing black comedy with dire drama.If you can suspend your disbelief for the ridiculious premise you can do the same for something as minor as a one dimensional villian being extra strong.

  • Jay liked it just as much as Enemy.

    Source:previously recorded twitch stream.

  • Lando

    These days “gonzo” is being used more broadly to describe any kind of manic and/or anarchistic action. I believe Jay even used the word to describe Evil Dead (apparently capitalizing film titles, though appropriate, comes off as yelling to simpler folk) and The Cabin in the Woods.

    So there : )

  • Zero Sum

    I really enjoyed Snowpiercer. Sure, you can complain about it being heavy-handed, or the premise being cliche, but it totally works in the context of the film. It’s quite surreal and allegorical, and obviously not meant to be taken too literally. You wouldn’t watch something like “Metropolis” or “City of Lost Children” and complain about them being unrealistic, would you? Silly goose.

    In fact, considering that it’s a Korean-produced film based on a French graphic novel set in the post-apocalypse, it’s almost downright restrained. I was expecting elaborate, choreographed musical numbers, or something equally insane. Plus, the cast is excellent, and all the performances are great. If you like your science fiction with a big dose of socio-political metaphors, this one is a winner.

  • Like Icare

    You must put a flag in it and then pee around it to make it count.

    It’s either that or nailing your intestines to it and then taking a walk around it, like vikings did.
    Or maybe didn’t.

  • Snowpiercer is god-awful. I could not look past how heavy handed the social message was and the amount of plot holes.

    All that focus on a self-contained eco-system and somehow they harvest millions of bugs each day? a car containing a meat locker full of beef, but no cows anywhere.

    An entire car dedicated to a rave…

    Fuck that stupid ass movie

  • Like Icare

    These days “socialist” is used to describe any kind of bad bad naughty no good men.
    Mostly by people who don’t know the meaning of the word but really like extreme sports.
    Like jumping on bandwagons and running with the herd.

    It doesn’t mean that it’s the correct meaning of the word.
    So there.

  • Like Icare

    That’s because it is misunderstood.
    It’s an art piece which satirizes the staleness of creativity in the movie industry by making a shot for shot remake of a classic, with modern actors who don’t fit their roles at all.
    It’s like Hamlet played by cats.

  • Adzl33t

    The comic was better

  • Ugh

    You didn’t mention them shooting at each other around the bend and being crack shots without ever practising, that was one of the worst groaners. All in all I still enjoyed the flick cause it was a suspension of disbelief required type film with top notch cool stuff happening and interesting characters to make it worth your while.

    Considering the Oxford English Dictionary likes to add ridiculous words (from hip hop slang to Internet memes) to its catalogue each year, it doesn’t bother me to broaden the use of a word as long as it’s in keeping with it’s core concept. And not for nothing, if you’re going to correct me, don’t use Wikipedia — I could pull an Urban Dictionary definition to support my case and it would hold the same amount of legitimacy.

    All of that to say, I was being sarcastic in my reply, not trying to insult you. There’s no need to be a dick about it. (I was, however, being insulting to the capitalization nazi.)

    Those aren’t technically plot holes, since they don’t pertain to the plot. The real plot hole (**SPOILERRRRS**) comes at the very end of the film. The engine is the only thing that can keep them alive in the frozen wasteland, so destroying it is tantamount to suicide on their part. But, of course, the engine is just a metaphor, and it’s destruction is purely symbolic.

    Rave is symbolism for an orgy in movies that can’t show orgies.
    As for cows… We weren’t shown some cars. Simple as that.
    We also saw dead chickens and a lots of eggs but no chicken farm. It’s a long train.

    BTW… You kinda missed the point or two… Most people did.

    SPOILERS!

    In short – it’s all an apparent order based on a lie.
    Everyone has a fore-ordained role… La-lah-lah…
    And then we find out the terrible truth that for the system to keep going some sacrifices have to be made in order for humanity to survive…
    Except that is NOT the terrible truth. But just another lie.

    You caught on some of it with the bugs but didn’t carry it through to the conclusion.
    What do the bugs eat?
    On a closed train which has planned revolutions every couple of years.
    Which end in a bloody massacre of revolutionaries.
    Where do those bodies go?
    BTW, bugs into jello program started shortly after the shift to cannibalism.

    It’s the Soylent Green solution, but with a middle man (or bug) or two.

    And with a Swiftian twist of using children as the food source and as living parts for the train.
    You can’t have a revolution without a growing (baby making) population.

    The other terrible truth is that even the liars who came up with the lie, don’t know the REAL truth.
    Which is that the entire scheme is not needed at all because there IS life outside.
    And that they are also probably insane.

    Oh… And did you notice that the director is from a country which lives next to a country who’s inhabitants are kept in the dark about the life in the world outside the borders, constantly told lies about dangers outside and kept starving while the elite enjoys the fruits of their labor, i.e. the calories they spend on work instead of on their own bodies?

    If a man’s body, and his children’s bodies don’t get to grow because someone else eats the food they create through their work – is that someone else slowly eating that man and his children?

  • Michael Collins

    That’s some top notch comedy right there.

  • How authentic can Enemy be if Toronto is “unapologetic”?

  • Garland

    but basically the bottom line problem with snow piercer was that it was this goony manga/videogame action movie for nerds, like kill bill or battle royale or whatever, but awful. it wasn’t science fiction and it wasn’t for adults, even as just a fun movie. and in a context that childish and goony it couldn’t afford to have the marxist stuff be so heavy handed and extreme.

  • Well played.

  • They explain the premise gradually over the course of the movie. Perhaps the fantasy-style of the movie lulls one, but I think the premise actually becomes more believable as the movie progresses.

  • Mike is very concerned that Grammas get their movies too.

  • tweakerbelle

    Good reviews except for Snow Piercer. Snow Piercer was a ham-handed piece of shit. It’s a Political Movie, and fundamentally, its politics are fascist. Snow Piercer should be ignored.

  • They have had set release days in the past: the Plinkett AOTC review was on Easter Sunday 2010 and the stream-a-thons.

    I would really love it if they did set a date for their regular shows: BOTW on Fridays and HITB on Monday or Tuesday. Something like that. I don’t know. It might work.

  • Like Icare

    Never could understand the appeal of regular pogs, let alone the extreme version. Always felt like it was half a step away from collecting bottle caps.
    Half a step in the wrong direction.

    As for Urban Dictionary vs. Wikipedia… Not quite the same thing.
    By which I mean that they have nothing in common. Except being on the internet.

    Wikipedia articles are as useful as their sources.
    Worst case scenario, some information is NOT there or it lacks a source to prove its veracity.
    Even then, information presented may be assembled and collated in such a way to provide easy access to related properly sourced information on or off of Wikipedia.

    Urban Dictionary is a pile of junk whose only role is to be a playground for teenage boys who are trying to come up with yet another way to say dick or tits.

    As for Gonzo…
    You are missing the point of your own statement.
    Probably due to misunderstanding of the term.

    Gonzo’s “core concept” is NOT “manic and/or anarchistic action”.

    Gonzo’s core is inclusion of the writer’s perspective into the story (which is why gonzo makes sense as a term for certain kind of porn) rejecting objectivity as inherently fake, concentrating instead on relaying the truth by being candid about the personal experience of the story AND use of satire and criticism.

    Satire and/or criticism alone are just that – satire and/or criticism.
    First person narrative of feelings and thoughts on a subject is just an opinion piece.
    Combine them with candidness and you got the core of gonzo.

    Hunter S. wasn’t “manic and/or anarchistic” – he was very fucking lucid in his writing.
    And very candid about everything he described.

    Which is where the value of gonzo lies – honesty.
    It may not be 100% real, but it is HONEST.
    And humans value honesty the same or even more than the truth.

    Which is a cognitive fallacy, but that’s another story.

    The first DVD player was created by Tatung Company in Taiwan in
    collaboration with Pacific Digital Company from the United States in
    1994. Some manufacturers originally announced that DVD players would be available as early as the middle of 1996. These predictions were too
    optimistic. Delivery was initially held up for “political” reasons of
    copy protection demanded by movie studios, but was later delayed by lack
    of movie titles. The first players appeared in Japan in November, 1996,
    followed by U.S. players in March, 1997, with distribution limited to
    only 7 major cities for the first 6 months.

    The villain is a guy who shoots immigrants. The way they fight back is using the underground network and muscle cars. I mean, really.

I have seen Scarlett Johansson butt ass naked though, not in a creepy leaked photo way I mean I payed to watch it the theaters! I really liked Under The Skin, it’s not for everyone though. Under The Skin is for people that are David Cronenberg fans, which I am so I like it.

    I also saw this film titled Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie. I travelled to a place to watch it! That’s how fucked up I am! Anyhow’s check it out, if you love movies and video game culture you owe yourself to see it.

Seriously, I read a sample of the writing on Amazon a few weeks ago, and wasn’t sure whether to cry or laugh. I ended up doing both. Think I can safely say James Franco doesn’t have one bone of talent in his body, and I can only assume why Mike liked it was because he didn’t actually write the screenplay and (it looks like) had minimal input in the film. If any of you want a laugh, read a sample of Palo Alto on Amazon, it’s got to be some of the worst writing I’ve ever read.

    In one of the early livestreams, Dark Souls I think, someone asked about what they thought about Edgar Wright being off the Ant-Man project. Jack talked about it most, though. They all like him as a filmmaker, and why wouldn’t they? ^^

  • Palpatine

    You are in my very soul, tormenting me.

  • Daniel Nguyen-Phuoc

    Actually they also discussed Pixar movies for the most part being great timeless animated movies.

    I think they just also have much less of an opinion as filmmakers because they’re not people who work with CGI to that extent. We like them for their filmmaking insights, right? Maybe they just don’t have as much to say.

    “North Korean monster movie”

    You mean any documentary featuring Kim Il-Sung, Kim Jong-il, or Kim Jong-un?

    serious question. Is there a way I can watch movies like this easily? I would go and watch them in the cinema but they are never shown. I don’t want to buy DVDs because Id only watch movies like these once and the idea of having DVDs all over the house (or throwing them out all the time) sickens me. And I don’t want to just torrent it for free. These movies will never be on netflix or whatever. Is there seriously no solution? I am getting bored of just sitting in my room scratching faces into the the walls.

  • Iggy Autry

    I seem to be the oddball, but I thought Enemy sucked too. A competent film in many ways but it needed better realism in the writing for the characters and a hell of a lot better ending….

  • bluehawk222

    This is the problem Mike and Jay point out with Half in the Bag but a lot of people just throw around the term elitist or snobby. These really good movies don’t get wide enough releases in cinemas. People would rather throw their money at Transformers. The only time the indie movies would get wide releases is when award season is out and Hollywood can market them that way. You just have to be in an area with a theater that plays the indie arthouse films, but they are so few and far between. It leaves us with just waiting for dvd/bluray release to watch them and it sucks we can’t see them in a cinema. But that’s American for you

  • andrew thompson

    i’m a google!

  • andrew thompson

    wait… what?

  • andrew thompson

    can someone else go back to the start and see what i posted…. i cant be fucked…..

  • Iggy Autry

    The ending sucked balls. My esteem for Mike dropped 25% (The whole love scene plot line took the film off the rail too. It was so unrealistic in terms of how anyone I can imagine would react, I was already disappointed I had stuck with the film for so long by the time that middle-school ending rolled….)

  • Iggy Autry

    I’ve been raving about it. It was what led me to go to RLM’s forum for the first time. It’s one of the better, fresher films I’ve seen in a long time, and when I went online and read how the director had put all his money (and that of relatives and friends too) on the line to make it, I sent the RLM guys a copy and posted about it.

    Something that good deserves respect and rewards…

    Those guys did things you don’t see in regular hero and revenge films. They took great risks in terms of what they put on the screen + what they spent in their own bank accounts…

    Great job…

  • Sully

    So THAT’S where I saw him before!!! I couldn’t place his face…

  • nebakhet

    so I did some digging around and found out that one of the movies, snow piercer, is streamed on Amazon instant, but a little warning popups up when I click saying “This movie requires a copy protection (HDCP)-compliant display for HD viewing.”

    haha fuck that. I need a special TV? god they are so frickin scared I might copy what they sell me anywhere other than my brain. This is the same amazon that lets me buy and download non DRM mp3s at the click of a button.

    Since when have the filthy capitalists not wanted our money? Upshot is I now am not going to pay anything because they have no product to sell me. Same reason I ditched my NetFlix account (they don’t add shit to it). Someone somewhere has probably lost well over $1000 from me over the last few years because they refused to offer what I wanted to buy. I actually do feel entitled to now just torrent the movies for free, but fact is I am too lazy and impatient to use torrents. It’s remarkably easy for me to just not watch stuff and forget it ever existed, a process that takes a few hours. In 5 years time I will probably hear these movies names again and think “oh that’s that movie I didn’t ever watch”.

  • Iggy Autry

  • playdude92 .

    I´ll watch all of these art films and pretentiously feel good about myself…while masturbating.

  • Mike B

    Oh no, I agree. I understood the premise just fine and in the context of the movie everything makes sense… “In the context of the movie” being the keyword here.

    Because when I said it did not make a lick of sense, I meant that if you think it even for a moment in the real life terms, the idea of a train running forever powered by children and unobtanium, it’s a really dumb and unfeasible concept altogether. But that does not matter at all as the movie is not really about how it all works. So it’s easy to push that aside. Snowpiercer is not as much ‘science fiction’ as it is ‘science fantasy’.

    I was going to try and find the specific livestream clip but I have no idea where to start looking for that one. There’ve been quite a few livestreams now, all several hours long. If you want to check them out for yourself, they’re all on either the Previously Recorded Twitch page or the PreRec YouTube channel.

    Overall they didn’t like Frozen. As I remember, it broke the golden rule of musicals, which is that musical numbers shouldn’t stop the story in its tracks. They also thought that the story forgot what it was about for half the movie, and that the most interesting character dynamics were wasted.

    I haven’t seen Frozen myself so I don’t remember specifics.

    I found it quite enjoyable. The thing is, when you start piecing it together, it doesn’t make any sense. But pretentious? It’s a very straight story, with 2 or 3 settings and 4 characters. No cgi, no crap editing, subtle sound effects and music. Marvel-Dc movies are pretentious, not this.

    The only musical number that stop the movie for me was Fixer Upper, though while I liked Frozen enough, I dont think it’s the great deconstruction people think it is, Lilo and Stitch already pass the Bechdel Test with 2 sisters, but I had fun though I think Tangled is a far better film as a reconstruction to Princess movies and more consistent in quality. Like Brave the film kinda tries too hard to be modern and new.

    Though do these guys even talk about other Disney films while talking about Frozen, I means aside from The Disney eyes in a Plinkett review, these guys just dont talk about animation at all, aside from cgi. I think the lack of animated movie reviews is pretty lame.

    I really didn’t like Brave. I wanted to, but I found it really bland and uninteresting. The only charm it had was from being Scottish, really. And even then, it played that card too much. I mean, it was okay overall, but certainly not to the quality that Pixar has produced before.

    Jack and Rich love “Up.” Jay hasn’t seen it. All of them really like “Wall-E” and so on. Jack likes both the “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” movies.

    Overall though, I think they just don’t have as much to say about animation. They work with low budget practical stuff, and that’s where most of their insights come from, so I figure it’s only natural that they have less to talk about.

    And ultimately they do what they want to do. They don’t owe anyone anything really.

  • Iggy Autry

    Amen, brother. Artsy for artsy sake. One of the worst cases of cinematic blueballs I’ve ever gotten. Threw something at the screen when the credits rolled after that middle-school, retarded ending…

  • Iggy Autry

    With all do respect (though not really), pretentious does fit this film. I can’t sum it up quickly. But, I knew halfway through it must be based on a book – and by the end – knew it must be based on a “literary” book….I actually went online to find out if it was, and hoped the “novella” had a better ending (that might have cost too much to film) – but alas – it was almost just as bad…

    This movie should have been made by the French in France…where an appreciative audience could have sat, patting each other on the back for being so avant garde and sipped their wine and munched some cheese…

  • Iggy Autry

    Blue Ruin isn’t artsy. If it is, just barely and not even that after the initial montage. It’s a straight-forward revenge story done by a competent director who was a cinematographer and knew how to make the scenes look good. What makes it memorable – besides having a good director – is the unusual hero… Enemy was artsy – and failed. Haven’t seen the others mentioned. (And I don’t mind artsy if it works.)

  • Iggy Autry

    Blue Ruin is about as perfect as Groundhog Day was. Both are basic movies done by solid people but each has a gimmick that works through to the end…which is why they rise above the average Hollywood fare….

Now it arrives, like the late-running south-eastern service from Ramsgate to London, St Pancras, almost a decade later than expected, in the form of Snowpiercer.

    One nice touch is that the original polar express ran on coal and therefore contributed to the runaway climate change that its successor has to deal with.

    I haven’t seen the film. As far as I can tell Snowpiercer never arrived in the UK. I am attributing its non-appearance to a campaign of censorship jointly enacted by the British rail network operators who must have greatly feared the public reaction to a movie offering a glimpse of what a reliable train service might look like.

    When I first heard the plot summed-up I was reminded of an Iain M Banks sci-fi novel called Consider Phlebas. The story concludes bloodily in a subterranean installation on a snow covered world that a long-dead civilization once circumnavigated using trains powered by nuclear reactors. It’s a great book. Before the surviving characters even reach the ice world there is an incredibly violent fist fight that takes place underneath the skirts of a hovercraft.

    My theory is that Snowpiercer is part of the viral advertising for a kickstarter campaign. Any profits raised by the film will be put toward the construction of an actual train built to withstand the rigours of the impending ice age. Early adopters who saw the movie in theatres will be rewarded with jobs on the train and smart conductors uniforms. Blu-ray owners will be admitted to the first class section where there will be a restaurant with tasselled lampshades. DVD owners will be grudgingly quarantined in the over-crowded second-class carriage which won’t have enough seats.

    Those who purchased a digital copy of the film will be instructed to board an imaginary train that exists in their imagination, after they have first read an exhaustive list of terms and conditions.

  • Aaron Swain

    Snowpiercer is really very different from his other films. It’s his first American film with American actors. I think it’s the only film he’s done that’s been an adaptation of a pre-existing work (the French graphic novel) and that wasn’t written by him. It’s also his first stab at sci-fi. The Host was a horror/monster flick and his other films have mostly been murder mysteries with comedy mixed in (think Coen Bros. in Korean)

    My attention span is the size of the amoeba and I do not have the patience to suffer through whole scenes of nothing going on, people doing things with zero motivation or insight. The dialogue felt awkward, as if delivered between autists pretending to be average people. I also dislike self righteous stories about an empty shell that I am supposed to perceive as a human being. I could as well remember the life of a kid next door I couldn’t care to become friends with because he was uninteresting, boring person with no ambition, no conscience and no imagination.

    Nope, I can’t enjoy an anti-film or a reality show that impersonates a film.

    I enjoyed Buffallo 66, back in 1998, though. It is satire aimed at the celebration of mediocrity as seen in boyhood. And it was made 20 years ago.

    It would be interesting review if they talk about animation just to get out of there comfort zone, I even suggested to them to review Laika’s Paranorman it was animated film basically made for them with cool B movie stuff, those Laika films are mostly practical effects anyway, so Im sure they can review Boxtrolls

    *SPOILERS* For Blue Ruin. I concur with Mike and Jay it’s a good film go so it. I want to talk about it so if you don’t want to know anything about the plot stop reading and don’t bitch at me about it.

    Wow this film was a pretty picture. A lot of interesting shots and visual storytelling that gets you really into the main character’s skin. This movie reminds me a little of No Country For Old Men and John Sayle’s Lonestar both in narrative terms. In one sense it’s a subversion of the typical revenge fantasy action flick. Where in most films the revenge creates catharsis for the main character and the audience, the last scene of this film is a dark descent into the futility of an empty bloodbath as revenge simply continues begetting more revenge and it is the one that chooses to throw away his gun that closes this loop. Much like Llewelyn Moss, Dwight embarks on a path chasing an unattainable fantasy. That simple revenge would provide him with some kind of closure, peace, or dignity back to his life which to this point has been aimless and homeless. This mirror’s Llewelyn’s own attempt at gaining some kind of power over his life by taking the money. Yet in both cases the fantasy though engrossing and adventurous are ultimately fruitless. Even if Llewelyn Moss were to best Anton Chigurh and avoided the Mexican hit the reality of the film world would be he would be looking over his shoulder for what he can’t stop from coming. He would never enjoy that money or provide all the things it represents to him. Meanwhile Dwight’s murderfest on what looked like one of the houses from Winter’s Bone culminates not in a final victory for him or the righting of a wrong, but rather the final tragic punctuation mark on sins that occurred long ago that didn’t involve anyone in the entire room including Dwight. The Lonestar vibe in the narrative was the intertwining connections between the main characters’ and the hated villains. Both were motivated by misguided family loyalties and fillial love and in the end two feuding families were in fact one in the same. A twist perhaps meant to further emphasize the rather interesting futility in the shootout in the movie’s finale. Although on first thought I don’t think the movie has as much to say as say No Country or Lonestar, but as a character study it is a very satisfying work that has almost perfect thematic unity. The person who mentioned Groundhog’s day was pretty spot on in that regard. I loved it.

  • Epifanes

    I wouldn’t dare. These days people are so sensitive about being called old.

  • Ogrot

    It’s straight to the point as a simple recommendation. If your just trying to give readers a taste of what the film would be like to bolster the recommendation without directly giving anything about the plot away you may want to compare it to other movies in terms of ambiance and tone. The obvious one to me is A No Country For Old Men sans Anton Chigurh and the at times heavy handed symbolism regarding a cruel amoral universe that rewards us with nothing but entropy for our toils.

    But yeah everything drama wise was perfectly subdued, the scene in the diner between Dwight and his sister was probably the most powerful scenes in the movie. Their connection and mutual loss and anger therein isn’t rambled on in dialogue. Its communicated in the acting. The unsaid. Much like real people. It felt like the most genuine moment in the entire film. Seems like the scene the director wanted to shoot the most.

    I only have one nit pick with the film which was the turnabout seen when Wade’s brother got the gun. The pacing of the scene pretty much telegraphed a forgivable deus ex machina where Dwight’s buddy off scene snipes Wadebro him like some fat Vasily Zaytsev or something. It might’ve fit together better if after he left with the carbine we see Dwight’s buddy actually considered going out there to check on him. But that’s a minor thing. I would also like to add that I’ve never seen such a jalopy photographed so well.

    In my editing class tonight, we finished up watching a short documentary on film editing. George Lucas was in it a few times and, well, he brought up how it’s like “poetry”.

    I later brought it up in our class discussion and my one friend who’s familiar with RLM burst into laughter then I mentioned that Lucas said editing was like poetry.

  • Whatever Ever

    Just got done watching Blue Ruin on Jay’s recommendation and okay, if that movie is considered one of the better movies of the year, then holy crap I do not regret wasting my time on most films of the past few years. What an attractive looking shoulder-shrug of a film. History of Violence…again…for the umpteenth time (minus the plausibility of the protagonist’s actions). Indy has gotten as many formulaic checkboxes to check off as mainstream does these days. Gotta hit those marks if you want an indy audience to like your thriller, and without those marks, there’s nothing left of the film but a carcass with a concept stapled to it. Can’t recommend the film and I won’t be remembering anything about it by next week, if not when I wake up tomorrow.

    That it is dude. That it is.
    What makes me sad isn’t that I found the movie forgettable and hollow and completely lacking in its own identity, but that I have little doubt that it’s one of the better movies of the year (or last year?) like Jay mentioned.
    I fear finding out for myself. I’d rather imagine a film being good (those trailers make them all seem so, right?) and respecting people’s opinions than find out how much lower expectations can go and how much genres and their continually increasing expectations have killed the imagination of filmmakers and their audience alike.
    Enough whining. You guys at RLM do great work. This Half in the bag was great even if it persuaded me to waste an hour and a half of my life and think existentially about the pointlessness of modern film. Wait. No. Screw you RLM. You made me sad!

    No it ain’t. At it’s best it’s okay. The whole film is just dull when you put the gimmick away. The story is uninteresting and so are the characters. They’re not likable characters in the sense that they’re horrible people they’re all just one note. There had to be at one point when Linklater just didn’t care about the characters and wanted to just make this gimmick work. Did it work? Yeah it did.

    Boyhood is like a 3D movie. At first you’re like “OH SWEET THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER” but you then realize it’s just a gimmick to pull people into the seats.

    So, Jason Reitman is making movie about social media and how technology is in the mind of youth all the time. Yeah, Mister Legacy Child Not Named Jaden Smith, that movie already exists. It’s called Her and what made that part of the film work is because like in real life it was in the background but as well as the main focus seeing how Doctor Strange falls in love with something that is technological in nature. You ain’t no Spike Jonze, Reitman. What a fraud.

    3. I saw Enemy on Greg Gutfeld’s recommendation a while back. Wasn’t impressed. True, it was well made and the sense of unease was just as Jay describes, but flip endings like that don’t do it for me.

    3. Proxy: I know nothing about it, but I’ma just gonna leave this here http://www.alphonsecomic.com/comic

    4. Palo Alto as anti-Boyhood? Hurm. Boyhood had merit for depicting the blah life of the American Boy. Nothing really happens. His parents are selfish wrecks, and he will grow up to be the same thing. I didn’t go into it expecting to be entertained but expected it to be more of a boring documentary-type thing I could exact social commentary from. I cared about the boy I guess, but once he turned moody teen I lost interest.

    5. Snowpiercer: Thankfully whatever political themes (class warfare/ global warming) are in it don’t ruin the film. The fact Jay didn’t know about this must mean he does not watch enough foreign films. I demand Best of the East (I’d say Orient but thas racist or somthin). So many to recommend but suffice to say they’d like Man from Nowhere (it’s very Drive), and A Bittersweet Life & Cold Eyes are worth checking out.

    Boyhood’s problem isn’t that it’s too long, it’s that it’s not long enough. Linklater should have split it into a trilogy. It was filmed in 12 years so you would have a release every 4 years. It would have allowed 2 hours for each part of the kids life and give us actual in depth character development and interaction instead of just jumping forward so much so fast that the past didn’t seem of consequence

    I passed on watching it. I might catch it on cable. Science fiction is hard. And, smart science fiction is even harder. Global warming and climate change is such a hotly debated subject. When the UN released a report stating that cow farts were the leading cause of carbon emissions I nearly died laughing.

    http://www.ibtimes.com/cow-farts-have-larger-greenhouse-gas-impact-previously-thought-methane-pushes-climate-change-1487502

    If there is a correlation, what are you going to do? Put a muffler on a
    cows’ asses? Force people to be vegan? Man has eaten meat since the
    beginning of time. Plus, China is the largest polluter. So, putting
    all those huge issues aside, as a writer, the only way that I can see
    using Global Warming as a device is purely as a subplot or back story. Thus, the movie really becomes just a marketing gimmick catering towards a certain political ideology. Also, when I read the synopsis, it reminded me of a book called “The 100” by Kass Morgan.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_100_%28TV_series%29

    So, I mean, right off the bat I felt there were problems. And, how do you cover up those problems? Probably with action and cinematography. So, I’m
    guessing there was beautiful camera work and action. I had heard from
    someone else that it could have been a great self parody on humans in
    general. For instance, the world was f*cked up because humans tried to
    use a device to SAVE the world from Global Warming and instead f*cked up
    the Earth even worse.

    But, hey, it seems that some people loved it. Different strokes for different folks.

    I know this involves “Reading,” but it’s a pleasant article saying, in a roundabout way, that Star Wars: The Phantom Menace lead to the death of cinema.

    Still working on that.

    I’m onto my third major now, Bachelor of mathematics, considering dropping out…

    It kinda reminds me of Disconnect, but M, W & C seems much more heavy handed.

  • lucusfarts

    Are you trying to have a science discussion on a video review site? Are you trying to argue scientifically about a subject in which you dont understand the details? Are you attacking a scientific fact because you dont understand what it means? Are you a climate scientist?

    Cows do indeed produce a great deal of carbon and man has eaten them since the beginning of time. There havnt however been 7 billion human mouths to eat, nor has there been a majority of those mouths expecting regular meat all year long.

    Fuck you and your lack of intelligent thought.

  • Ugh

    Vancouver and Hong Kong oceanfront look the same in many regards, my guess is the same architects and developers… so possibly neither.

  • Ugh

    I hear you’re from up North where dinner requires a chainsaw and a frozen Moose on the back steps. I’ve been everywhere!

  • NicholasRibcage

    So, regarding Enemy … at first I thought it’d just be another art-house film, but I stuck with it, and began enjoying it. Reminded me of Moon quite a bit, which is good. I’m just confused with the ending. The whole spider thing … can someone help me out?

  • Ugh

    I thought he was busy inventing the train, but on second thought, you might be right.

  • Ugh

    I enjoyed Moon too. Did Tom Cruise really think nobody saw it?

  • Ugh

    If you want to make money these days, be a safety asshole on work sites. You can thank me later.

  • tim

    Too bad u didnt mention the Snowpiercer ending.. its terrible

  • ikdks

    i kinda dislike kevin smith.

    Jay is such a good resource for director driven film. He sent me off on a whole Lars von Tear journey (which slammed headlong into Nymphomaniac.)

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Lars von Tear? Who?

  • ikdks

    Not to mention the deforestation for grazing land. I love beef but you should at least be aware of the impact of your actions so you can make an informed decision.

  • ikdks

    You sound like Carman laughing about breast cancer.

  • omitted

    If you’re slamming headlong into nymphomaniac, you’re doing it wrong.

  • ikdks

    That’s not what she said.

    Hey-ooooh!

  • ikdks

    Fun with fractals!

  • ikdks

    It was a dorm room stoner conversation with a budget.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    No, that’s what omitted said.

  • ikdks

    No, she said that. I have a bed full of fugitive hair extensions to prove it.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Oh. Well, small world, eh?

  • ikdks

    That don’t make no sense.

  • Uncle Dan

    Maybe it was more “Well, that’s a nice movie, but you know, it needed more explosions, so let’s do that.”

  • omitted

    (though not really)

  • Memoman

    I quite liked Disconnect. It was a bit preachy and fear mongering, but not over the top, it work as a thriller genre movie, and as a movie itself, it had most of the essentials going for it: good pacing, clear plot and good acting.

  • justin

    I walked out of snowpiercer. Such a shitty movie.

  • Sir Clownstick

    Toronto is Canada’s purgatory.

  • Ugh

    In that case, I think it’s spelled s’plosions and he would have said pew pew for gunshots to help get the point across.

    The most surprising thing about this is that Rotten Tomatoes has a new look!

    Fuck you, care boars are the greatest thing this site has ever produced and or been involved with. Its so awesome that most people simply cant stand to be in its presence which I assume must be your problem since the rest of us love those furry little bastards and the way it constantly plays after every video.

    Also I want more dude bros.

  • lucusfarts

    thats gonna be great.

  • lucusfarts

    “Moon was a great film except it needed more splosions and more tom cruise to reach bigger audiences” I bet you a PR said words to those exact effect.

  • lucusfarts

    I had a good read of it, and while I would love to pin more blame on mr lucas we have to be fair and say that all mainstream films are usually terrible and only seem to degrade and destroy true creative expression and artistic masterpieces.

    .. And does he remember when he was in the Beatles?

  • Duckler

    “Canada’s purgatory”..? Isn’t that like dividing by zero?

  • megamanplayer

    I feel that Quick Cuts could be not only about current films but also older ones. Maybe ‘cult-classics’ and stuff like that. I really enjoyed the format and keeping it just to newer movies is wasting the show’s potential.

  • WUUUUAAAAT! All this time I thought I was watching japanese animation and comicbooks. I feel so unclean. I’ll be down in the planetcore.

  • Never actually watched that. Felt like a knockoff of Transformers. Like that other show Gobots. I was allways picky of what I watched as a kid.

    He did mention it. He said the truman show-esque part hurt it

  • I wonder why?!

    Toronto is a thriving urban center without slums or ghettos. It has the lowest crimerate of any city in northamerica. Toronto is clean.

    A great city is like a tall ship sailing into the next century. Toronto Ontario, is at full sale to the future and may well be the most perfect city in the western hemisphere.

    Mike…. you racist.

    I don’t understand “feel bad” movie people. People who like nothing but depressing, demoralizing art are often excused with “to each his own” or some other flip dismissal. But really, humans are not so deep that you can separate a constant barrage of negativity from their overall personality. No one really likes anything “just because”, they just don’t want to share why they connect with it and should explore why. Jay must be a pretty dark guy.

    I love Kevin Smith. I’ve watched all of his movies (some of them multiple times). I subscribe to and regularly listen to SModcast. I’ve seen most if not all of his Q&A sessions. I even took my avatar and screen name from Clerks and Clerks II, respectively.

    I just watched Tusk and I’m sorry to say it might be the worst movie I’ve ever seen in my life. “Hindenburg” is the word that comes to mind when I think about the second half and that kind of only scratches the surface. One of the things that really killed it for me was Depp’s Guy LaPointe character. It’s not exactly straight, but it’s not exactly wacky, and it never really settles into anything worth watching. I feel like his entire point of being in the movie was an introduction to audiences so that when Yoga Hosers comes out everyone will go “Oh, I remember him!” Total waste of time that could have given everyone 20 minutes of their life back.

    I get that movies don’t necessarily need to have a set tone or structure but it’s horrendously evident after seeing Tusk that Smith needs both of them desperately to keep a movie from self-destructing. It probably wouldn’t hurt for Mosier to come back as his co-editor and/or producer as the constant change in pacing made this feel like an eternity, even at just under two hours.

    This may be the first movie that I literally wanted to get up and walk out of if for nothing other than sheer boredom and frustration but I stayed because I paid. I knew full well when I went in that this was supposed to be a total “WTF” fest, and while it certainly was, it ended up being the film equivalent of spending an afternoon on YouTube hopping from genre to genre.

    I was praying it would get better, but it never did. Now I worry that the next one will be just as crappy. At least I’ve learned my lesson. I’ll remember next time that I have a Netflix subscription for a reason.

  • Daniel

    you’re an idiot, how was I even implying that thought? I don’t like it because it got good ratings, some critics are weird and pretentious and a lot of films that have high ratings on RT are overrated and crappy but Boyhood I think is great because it doesn’t go about things in a pretentious way (you can argue it does but nah) and i actually normally agree with mike and jay on everything but not this. Also what do you think are the awkward and terrible moments? You know some of it is intentionally awkward cos its a realistic film about life and growing up yeah?

  • Daniel

    Yeah cos if you want to make money, spending 12 years of your life on a film that most people won’t see anyway is the best way to do it…. Well the story is life and growing up and I guess it works if you see your own life reflected in it and can involve your emotions with the characters feeling and development. Meh you think that but you just don’t get what it’s about, its about life and if you think its dull then you don’t dig life and family i guess.

    When i think of Jason Bateman. I think of the boy who form a special bond with David Hasselhoff and his talking car, Kit.

    http://www.knight-rider.pl/galeria/KR_odcinki/310_8.jpg

    I think after this episode. Bateman did a special Video Called “How do you know if your really love with David Hasselhoff or his Car.”

  • andrew thompson

    transcontinental stalking. thats true love.

  • Joe

    Bad words was not as good as bad Santa but I feel like if Mike an Jay can appreciate a character who is sympathetic because he is defeated and that’s why he is vile then they are close to liking bad words. Bateman isn’t as in control as Mike and Jay act, he is just like Billy Bob’s bad santa a pathetic character, and that I feel is the redeeming quality of him. With Bad Santa the defeated and pathetic is more obvious but really to me Bad Words is like a Bad Santa sequel that is 70% as good.

    Maybe 70% of Bad Santa isn’t enough, but I think they are painting Bateman as more dislikable than he was and also really biasing against the film because they called the “twist”. Maybe you guys should revisit it without the “obvious twist” bias.

    I will give major credit to you guys to comparing it to Bad Santa which is pretty much the exact movie this movie wants to be, but to me it didn’t fail as bad as you guys think it did. This review is probably the biggest disagreement I’ve had with Jay and Mike, and it’s only a difference of me thinking the movie is a B- or B and them thinking it’s a C- or D+.

    Consider this: Bad Santa is overtly tragic, Bad Words Bateman is tragic but in a more warped sociopathic sense.Which is to say neither character is vile because they want to be, but with Bateman’s character that nuance is harder to detect.

    Put simply Billy Bob didn’t care about anythingincluding if he was being terrible, Bateman didn’t understand that he was being terrible because he was so self-obsessed.

  • Now I Get It

    So, is that a “yes” or a “no”?

  • lucusfarts

    If you are referring to some american scientists that allegedly fucked with the data then yes I have. I refer back to my statement in which I stated:
    a) I am not a scientist (as i assume you arent) let alone a climate scientist
    b) I do not know all of the facts

    What I do know though is this, Americans are the only ones who doubt scientists. Most if not all, even china, accept global warming as a real thing. One scandal does not a conspiracy make and finally science wins out.

    You want to know why science wins out? Because science doesnt fake results, scientists do. A few bad apples might abuse science to continue their funding but in the end other scientists will find out because they can follow the data and the testing for themselves to see if its true or not.

    Now with all that said, unless you are a climate scientist give it up. You haven’t anymore clue than I do about the actual science involved you only know what you have been told, same as me and everyone else that hasn’t spent their life studying this subject.

    I dont know how i can be any more clear to you, but you dont expect to understand fusion reactors, you dont expect to understand black holes physics, you dont expect to understand quantum physics or surgery or any other complicated science without having actually studied it. Yet every asshole with an opinion comes out acting like they understand climate science as if they spent 50 years being the leading climate scientist because they watched a 5 minute tv news report.

    Global warming is real. Deforestation is real. Increasing human population is real. Demand for middle class lifestyle including all year long stocked supermarkets is real.

    Imagine for a moment, you have an empty vaccum sealed room, at first you fill it with plants and a few humans. The humans produce carbon dioxide, the plants use that carbon dioxide and produce oxygen.

    Then you begin removing the plants one by one, and exchanging those plants for more humans. Theres now more carbon dioxide and less oxygen.

    Keep going and what the fuck do you think happens? Let me explain what happens, the plants dissapear, the humans keep on multiplying, the carbon dioxide keeps on multiplying and the oxygen dwindles.

    This is just a simple thought experiment to show you the basic idea of what we are doing to this planet. Most of the world accepts this with one major exception.

    Again I have to repeat, even the above is a morons take on what is happening because I am not a scientist and I do not know all the facts let alone understand the full ramifications of it.

    Science always deals in the best facts man can define, test, model then make predictions from. Scientists can occasionally lie but eventually they get found out by, can you guess? other scientists, using science.

    I dont know how many other ways I can explain this to you really, its kind of sad that I even have to.

    I wonder if Silent Mike will mention boyhood in the next video too! did he like boyhood? I can’t remember. I hope he talks about it more.

    Actually Canada shit kicked anyone who ever stepped up, A couple quick examples would be burning down the Whitehouse and taking Vimy ridge when nobody else could, and in the process, reinventing warfare using scientific methods.

    So, the answer is yes and no. “Yes,” you’ve heard of “Climategate” in general as one among a family of scandals called “-gate”; “no,” you know nothing in particular about it.

    In a way, though, your inaccuracies – AGW fraudster Phil Jones is English, AGW debunkers Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick are Canadian, anti-AGW polemicist Christopher Monckton is English – are beside the point, because Climategate isn’t about where these people come from. Similarly, your name-calling – “assholes”, “morons” – is neither here nor there, because no one would ever mistake it for a real argument.

    The real story of Climategate is that, despite what you say, science doesn’t always win out, as sometimes the institutions designed to support it get re-designed to subvert it. Just as the real story of your vehemence is that, despite not knowing the facts, you’ve managed to pick a side in this scandal anyway.

    Now, if you don’t want the real story of your life to be that you let yourself be panicked into a rage, then you should refuse to be moved by anything you don’t understand. And a good start would be to stop calling yourself an “asshole,” as if that’s a real argument, just because there are some things you don’t get. Stop to take your time.

    Otherwise, you’ll find that you’ve thrown your life away on that baddest of bad moods, self-hatred; or, as Patton Oswalt put it, “You are going to miss everything cool and die angry.”

    Im angry because this is a pathetic argument that i want nothing to do with. I laid out what we are doing to the planet in very basic to understand terms. If we continue cutting down forests there will be less oxygen more carbon dioxide and the planet will warm.

    The scandal is unimportant as i stated science does win out in the end it just takes time for the lies to be found out. One institution amongst 99% of scientists that agree on the matter does not invalidate the entire body of evidence.

  • lucusfarts

    Oh, and im still an asshole.

  • The guy

    please review tusk you hack fruads

  • Anyone wanna guess what I was eating when I saw RLM’s latest update? Also, you hacks wanna open up the comments and maybe shave those neck-beards?

  • hybridm0ments

    Of these films I was really only interested in Blue Ruin and The Enemy.

    Unfortunately, The Enemy was unadulterated wank. It’s visually interesting and beautiful in a way, but it’s completely shallow and meaningless. A companion piece to a novel, sort of?
    It could have gone quite a few ways and been clever and creepy – instead it just shat the bead and said , “Fuck it, here is a giant spider.”

    Meh.

  • hybridm0ments

    Why? Kevin Smith knows fuck all about making horror films.

  • hybridm0ments

    Finished Blue Ruin. Fantastic film. Really knocked it out of the park. Not much else to say on that. haha

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Thanks. 🙂 It was as much a review I felt was necessary if I was trying to entice someone to see it without really giving anything away.

    I loved that diner scene, especially because he had the gall to interrupt it with the man asking for ketchup, subverting what typically happens in films and lets us remember they’re in a diner with people around.

    You mentioned the scene where Dwight’s buddy saves him. I too was thinking about the deus ex aspect, but at the same time I felt it wouldn’t have felt as surprising or tense if we had an idea that his buddy might try to save him. That said, the thing that impressed me in that scene was that they were meticulous enough with their sound design that they had the sound of the bullet whizzing by before we heard the gunshot, which is what would happen in real life with projectiles that go faster than the speed of sound.

  • Now I Get It

    About your “basic to understand terms”: I just went through this, trying to buy reflective film for my windows.

    Shopping around, I found sales pitches and hard scientific studies, each of which described the film’s properties. The problem was that I didn’t trust the sales pitches and couldn’t understand the studies. What I needed was a simple table of figures, telling me how much cooler my rooms would be with the film blocking the sun. That information would have been basic to understand, but it doesn’t exist.

    Shopping the theory of AGW is the same thing, except there are no hard scientific studies, only sales pitches, and the warmists’ big selling point is that “We have the consensus.”

    Yet this is exactly why people, especially genuine scientists, distrust them. They know that consensus is not a form of truth – not in science, not in art, not in philosophy, not even in politics – but a substitute for a truth that climate salesmen have wished for but cannot prove.

  • Now I Get It

    About the scandal: Uhm, you do know that all the pro-AGW institutions have been implicated in the scandal – don’t you? – not just one of them, which is why I say that science doesn’t always win out in the end.

    But we’ve seen this before, via George Lucas, who also took the institutional route to a career and just kept going. If art doesn’t always win in the end, why would science?

    Thus, the second good place for you to begin is with the fact that a consensus is not a scientific result achieved by independent observation and experiment, but a political result achieved by an all too political campaign for social support. It’s an achievement not of logic and conscience, but of rhetoric and the calculated leveraging one’s own professional standing.

    By analogy, take the mild mania that this webzone’s regulars have shown over their place within RLM’s top 18. Imagine how manic they would become, if their ranking depended not on a straight count of their comments but on a calculus involving their numbers of upvotes, downvotes, and replies, numbers that Disqus tracked but kept secret. Now imagine if a commenter’s freedom to keep commenting depended on a second, even more secret calculus involving whether he has ever publicly doubted the truth of that first calculation. Finally, imagine if a commenter’s life offline – his ability to own a home, support a family, advance professionally, grow intellectually, plan for the future – depended on his standing online.

    Such is the reality of every scientist within any institution related to the theory of AGW. Regardless of the evidence, he must come out for the theory, or at least not come out against it, or he’ll lose everything. No “ifs” about it.

    Now imagine that everyone in society has been similarly institutionalised, so that what’s true for each of this webzone’s commenters is true for RLM itself. Imagine that Mutt & Jeff, and little Mitchy must publicly praise George Lucas (and Adam Sandler and Richard Linklater, et al), or be deleted from the world wide web. Imagine that anyone who requests another Plinkett review is similarly erased. Imagine that RLM’s Patreon donors are routinely audited by the IRS. Finally, imagine that everyone is forced, by law, to buy a ticket to George Lucas’ next ill-made disaster of a movie or else.

    Such is the dream of David Suzuki, possibly Canada’s phoniest cultural icon, who has lobbied the public to jail any politician (for a start) who ignores the theory of AGW.

    Would you like to go to prison for disagreeing with George Lucas or David Suzuki or some random plaintiff who rats you out on a comment board? Or would you rather see these people start getting what they deserve?

    Because whether you want anything to do with it or not, this whole thing is poised to go one way or the other.

  • nocomment

    Unlike Boyhood, Palo Alto is stylistically designed to be that way!

    …But we can’t undo that.

  • andypants1989

    Thought I’d throw my two cents in for Maze Runner. It’s not a great film, but the concept is good and the story is solid, the acting is a bit hit and miss, but there’s enough suspense to keep you interested until the end the whole thing is pretty competently executed visually. All in all a solid B-movie and worth seeing

  • JimJamJeffrey

    You guys (n gals) are the greatest, i’ve been following for years and you still make me laugh.

  • sepiajack

    I’m glad Jay had a chance to see/discuss SNOWPIERCER, that movie was for me the best surprise of the Summer. I was expecting a Sharknado type mess based on the absurd premise, but instead got the worthiest contender to the Brazil pedestal to come along in movies in a very very very long time.

  • sepiajack

    I enjoyed Maze Runner quite a bit too.
    I’m a big fan of Lord of the Flies/LOST/CUBE, type stories where people arrive mysteriously in an enclosed finite location and have to puzzle there way about.

    What I liked most though was MR was fully earnest except for the ‘exit’ sign joke towards the end. Movies have gotten so ironic and meta and sarcastic and self referential that it was nice to see something that merely WAS, it existed and told its story, but didn’t analyze itself or parody of its own premise.

  • sepiajack

    I salute you Ugh.

  • sepiajack

    Yeah I like The Game a lot too

  • sepiajack

    Just finished watching ENEMY based on Mike & Jay`s review. I really enjoyed it, I think their assessment was pretty spot on.

  • The Summer of George

    Mike has never been more awkward.

  • Patrick

    They would if anyone actually cared about Tusk. Even most people who actually like Kevin Smith don’t care about Tusk. You can’t mix juvenile, poopy-pants humor with shocking body horror and expect more than a couple idiots to care.

  • Tim Brawn

    So I take this one is never making it to Youtube…

  • phil james

    yeah put this on you tube you hack frauds.

  • dead_magazine

    Toronto is exactly that. Take note!

  • Duckler

    Congrats to all of you people down there who made Jay watch Snowpiercer. I hope you feel proud now… That’s right up there with Judge Dredd

  • Don’t give him more money to make more bad films.

  • Andrew Fullerton

    Don’t worry Mike, no one in Toronto thinks that our city looks better than Mr. Plinkett’s basement.

  • goldbrood

    Toronto has a hideous skyline, like most cities do and most of Enemy takes place in the uglier parts of Toronto but there are some perfectly pleasant areas in terms of architecture because unsurprisingly not everything is brutalist (tho we do also have some interesting brutalist architecture)

  • Duckler

    I really did like Enemy! No snark. It was a psychological thriller that did everything right and correctly. Plus, I’m a fan of the color yellow.

  • Anders Hass

    Youtube version if RedLetterMedia haven’t changed it before blip has been shut down https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfGFcokeLFs&list=PL34C1F26D03F5F9B8&index=21

  • Variant

    I watched Enemy I think right before this review came out – and after I watched this I went back and watched it a second time to test a theory that came to me when they mentioned the “sickening yellow” tone of the movie. And it turned out I was correct – I don’t know if anyone else noticed this too but every time it is colored that sickening yellow – that is when the scene is a metaphor about his reality. I’m pretty sure. It’s been a few years.
