OK, he's not in it much but he's definitely in it many. And he is, again, literally the only good part of that entire ride.

Hello, I'd like to humiliate some hussies and I'm in a hurry.


I kind of hope it's Solace, starring Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell. Finished in 2014, it sat on the shelf for two years before being released at the tail-end of 2016. The crazy part was that it was originally going to be a sequel to Se7en.

But the more I think about it/obsess over a comedy podcast, the more I think it's going to be Collateral Beauty. It sounds more batshit than I could possibly believe.

Also: Suicide Squad. They've talked about it so much they have to do it/are planning on doing it. Just expect plenty of "It's okay to like a movie" throw-ins. Having watched it for the first time a couple of nights ago, I want them to tear it apart with the fury of a million suns.

Can you really say the crew is biased against Snyder? It's not like the vast majority of his output hasn't been extremely polarizing, to put it lightly.

I think it's silly to say anyone is biased against Snyder, but people do engage in a lot of "worst. movie. ever." hyperbole with him. I think it's silly to rank any of his films as the worst movies of whatever year they came out in
Like I don't think BvS or Man of Steel were good, but I don't think the Marvel movies are very good either and it baffles me when people act like By the Numbers Generic Marvel Film Number #28 is like...significantly better than whatever he's done.

But again I don't like comic book movies at all to begin with so I'm clearly not the audience.

I saw that in theaters but didn't even know Sam Raimi was responsible for in until a few years ago. I'm also shocked that it never got any bad DTV sequels because it was a pretty decent sleeper hit.

It did get some crappy sequels but I dunno if they were DTV though. There was also a failed tv pilot
Oh yea they were DTV "Darkman II: The Return of Durant is a 1995 American superhero action film directed by Bradford May. It is a direct-to-video sequel of Darkman. Series creator Sam Raimi serves as executive producer. It is followed by a further sequel, Darkman III: Die Darkman Die."

I love Darkman it's seriously the best and he's way better than BATMAN. Liam Neeson, that weird Raimi charm, a nail gun battle, Bruce Campbell cameo you really can't ask for more

This movie and Robocop were ones that we watched when I was 10 and our reaction was basically nerdy voice "OH MAN THIS IS SCHWEET". Revisiting them years later after remembering them solely as unironic kick-rear end action movies was priceless.

TetsuoTW posted:

Partly it barely has a plot, partly the entirety of the "film", from the perspective gimmick through the performances and literally everything except the length, feels like someone released a mediocre simulator ride video as a movie by accident. It's like watching someone do a longplay of a lovely Mirror 's Edge knockoff. There's only one good thing about that whole film and it's Sharlto Copley, and he's not even in it much.

Pretty much nailed it, yeah. Also, there's one particular joke out of one of the Copleys that kinda turned me against the movie even more, on top of that, and I'm pretty sure said joke would make the WHM gang have a loving conniption fit given their usual reactions to misogyny.

And I mean come on, if they can get an episode out of loving The Santa Clause 3 by padding it out with griping about Tim Allen's continued existence, they could work something out for Hardcore Henry.

Sometimes I feel they harp on things for way too long. Andrew especially. He just comes off as angry all the time. When I get to this point I take a break though so it could just be from listening to the podcast so much.

The misogyny is weird but a lot of it comes from the amazing villain who looks and sounds like an evil albino telekinetic Tommy Wiseau.

I think they edge on it very rarely but overall, I would say the tone of We Hate Movies is the most forgiving towards bad movies in general. Most of the time I feel like Andrew is just venting over pet peeves of movies and poor directing/scripting/acting. I sympathize because he must watch a ton of stuff and he has to spend a lot of time thinking about this stuff.

[gush]
Honestly We Hate Movies has been the most consistently awesome for me and it the one I re-download the catalog and listen to pretty frequently. Maybe I just burned out so badly on Flophouse that I'm super forgiving. That and how progressive they are and unafraid to call poo poo out is really important to me. Like a lot of other podcasts I listen to that aren't expressly liberal just tiptoe around it, and it makes me so happy to see four average dudes being not terrible.
So I finally started catching up on all the Patreon stuff and omg, I love it. I love in the beginning when they started going very blue and both apologizing/defending it. I didn't think I would like the Nexus as much as I do, and the SooS has been very interesting and fun to listen to. So glad they started doing it :allears:

He's been on a downward spiral ever since After Earth. I believe someone posted an AV Club article discussing it, but he went from being Hollywood's most bankable star to just a dude appearing in bad movies. It's hard to overstate how badly After Earth (and the various public antics of his two idiot children) cut the throat of his career.

If the interviews with Jaden Smith are any indication, Will's into far more traditional wackadoodle nonsense like pranic energy.

Completely disagree, since Seven Pounds came out five years before After Earth. Men in Black 3 was actually his comeback after not being in anything for about that length of time.
