This has to be the third or fourth time a movie review/comedy group I follow did an ep on BvS and the universal negative reaction to Martha never stops being great.

It is funny how many Internet people are jumping on Snyder for the story and writing when he isn't actually, you know, one of the movie's writers.

I'm increasingly of the belief that people are right to say that the Internet is killing movie criticism, but not because it's making it more democratic or anything, because it's smothering it in an overwhelming pile of hyperbolic, literally prejudiced wank.

Won't somebody think of the poor blockbusters and their nine-digit marketing budgets?

When I was a kid I loved watching all those movie special effects shows on the Discovery Channel and one did an entire episode on Dungeons and Dragons. The people working on that movie were so proud of that quicksand floor effect, it got an entire segment dedicated to it.

It really was oatmeal painted to look like floor.

Because I'm a huge dork I tweeted them that I know how to DM and I live across the river. Though I may have to demand they roleplay as Greg from BvS, Jeremy from Brainscan and Brian from The Watcher. Or maybe Eric Movie and Martin Cinemax III. At least then the game will have some TITS in it!

Martin Cinemax III is totally the kind of player who would just spend the game trying to have pretend sex with wenches at the tavern. Like the Flophouse dorks did in their lovely guest episode of The Adventure Zone.

I always felt bad for Jeff Foxworthy, because Ron White at least got to be the bad boy/comedian's comedian of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour while he was stuck in a prison of "...you might be a redneck" jokes when he obviously wanted to branch out from that. Especially when Bill Engvall is just copying him with his "here's your sign" garbage and Dan Whitney is a midwesterner shucking and jiving as a pretend redneck for the crowds and eclipsing Foxworthy's own career in the process.

There's an amazing made-for-TV movie or tell-all book to be made when all their pharmaceutical ad and novelty foodstuffs money dries up.

I'm imagining a modern version of Wired where Hugh Dancy portrays a talentless, boozing scumbag Robin Williams, who everyone secretly hated.

There's actually enough material for something like this though, there's a lot of bad blood between Williams and other comedians because he stole jokes on top of doing hackish coke-fueled crowd work and impersonations and generally being hard to work with.

I'm not a big fan of Tim & Eric but their sketch where they hire a Robin Williams impersonator and have to treat him like an unruly dog because he's scampering around and making his "ah! oh! uh! huh!" grunts is great.

This was a good ep, but after hearing the gang lament the lack of William Hung I'm definitely going to submit God Bless America for the next listener request month so they can see how thankful they should be that the movie didn't have strong opinions on that particular piece of pop-culture effluent.

Also I would watch their version of the movie where instead of terrorists it's gleep-glop aliens.

Maybe it's because of what a bizarre, angry reactionary he's become in the past decade but their tangent about Gallagher being an amazing Expendables/Bond villain was spot-on. At the very least I could see him nailing something like Rodney Dangerfield's role in Natural Born Killers.

It's a shame because aside from his watermelon-smashing gimmick old Gallagher was a perfectly fine comedian, especially since kids seemed to be a lot of his audience. Nothing amazing but a lot of his routine was simple observational humor and wordplay, he only got really hackish and hateful as the years went by.

I'm kind of predicting that Suicide Squad will be somewhere between entertaining to mediocre, and regardless of its actual quality, the internet will rush to declare it the worst film ever created before the first group even leaves the theater.

On the other hand Deadpool, Ant Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy seemed to mostly get by unscathed once they came out and Suicide Squad seems much more in that wheelhouse rather than a movie like Batman v Suparman that was trying so hard to be taken seriously and set up a franchise.
