I AM INCREDIBLY BORING AND SHOULD STOP TALKING ABOUT FOOD IN THE POLITICS THREAD


That wrestling bit was ridiculously funny. Jim Ross impressions are always hilarious, and these were no exception.

I have no clue why they haven't done a Weekend at Bernie's remake either. Get Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum to do it, I'd get drunk and see that.

I still maintain that The Life Zone is one of the most offensive, disturbing premises for a movie I've ever seen. I totally get why they didn't pick it for Viewer Request Month because jesus christ.

Plot summary: "Three pregnant women are kidnapped from abortion clinics and detained against their will for seven months until they give birth."

And it's not like a horror movie where the kidnapper is the villain and the women are the heroes, no no no, they're all sluts (except for the ones who change their minds and happily accept being forced into motherhood).

What the gently caress :catstare:

Just looked up the ending. It's even better than what you said. It was a Hell dream!! The one girl who didn't change her mind of the three girls and still wanted an abortion? She died on the abortion table. And the doctor committed suicide! They're both in hell!

Man, those are the worst team ups. Sure I'm part of a global domination paramilitary organization primarily utilizing terrorism as my tool, but I'm not drug dealing scum. Good guy/bad guy team ups can be good, but you've got to utilize a better reason than "Hey I'm a bad guy, I'm not EVIL over here."

The problem with that stuff is they never go far enough.

Cobra should be launching evil death satellites to take out the houses of drug dealers, and Dr. Doom should have deposited Osama Bin Laden's smoking corpse in front of the White House a few days after 9/11

If these villains are so offended by that poo poo, they should treat it like they treat everything else.

If it weren't for the patriot angle, yeah. When a generic mobster pulls the Team America card it makes sense. Joker should have a much better reason, like non-ironic Naziism just isn't funny.

COPS did one, too, where the cops and crooks joined up to defeat a bad guy called... ADDICTEM.

Addictem - A drug dealer who was selling Crystal Twists that were causing people to become addicted to them. He tried to join Big Boss' gang only to be denied since Big Boss does not do drug dealing. Because of Addictem spreading his Crystal Twist drugs across Empire City and Berserko falling into a Crystal Twist crate trying to steal the Mayan Gold, Big Boss and his gang had to team up with COPS to stop Addictem's drug ring. When Addictem was chased into the hospital and grabbed by Berserko, Addictem surrendered to COPS to evade getting beaten up by Berserko. Addictem was sentenced to life in prison and those who were affected by the Crystal Twists are recovering from them.

I don't even know how many shows did this during this era, but I can see the notion of maybe it happing if there were some sort of FCC request to put some anti-drug story in cartoons they couldn't have their long-standing 'baddies' be drug dealers. So, create some throwaway characters that show that drugs are so bad that not even COBRA or the school bully will touch them...

I don't really think any of the shows that appeared in Cartoon All Stars to the Rescue had a very special drug awareness episode of their own shows running around that time.

maybe Big boss is more of a Vito Corleone type. drugs are bad for business and it always backfires and starts unnecessary inter criminal gang wars and it brings you into the sights of the DEA and other feds. gently caress i though about that too hard.

this. add on to that, the joker is never been a big team player, he will play along until batman shows up then he will branch out on his own betrayal or plans. also i totally read that entire joker scene in the mark hamil voice in my head.

on another topic, what movies would you like to see them talk about someday. I would like robocop 3 because its honestly the worst robocop movie(yes counting the reboot, it has its issues, but i think it does some stuff ok) and mercury rising because its basically bruce willis shackled to an annoying autistic kid the entire movie because alec baldwin thinks he might know goverment secrets and is trying to kill him

You didn't need that disclaimer, the remake was a totally acceptable movie. Anyone who honestly thinks it was worse than Robocop 3 is a huge baby still mad about "grrr remake" and absolutely needs to watch Robocop 3.

this. Robocop 3 kinda just shits all over the last 2. there are some good moments.(the office politics scenes, some of the one liners) but alot of it is all over the place, they either retread on ground the 1st one did(murphy being murphy etc) fridging Lewis, samurai robots, the entire ending, the fact that the Goverment is no where to be seen. its just lovely.
