Samurai Cop

A legendary bad film, recently done by "We Hate Movies". It's been on my list for a while but the podcast of it bumped it to #1 on my "to see" list.

The ADR was terrible. The hero of the movie wears an obvious wig from cut to cut of the movie. Robert Z'Dar is the bad guy. There's little sense in the plot. There are only 5 cops in the city. People talk when they shouldn't and don't when they should, most everything seems to be one take, regardless of how badly an actor has stumbled over the lines.

And yet, it's entirely entertaining. It's nearly a perfect good-bad movie.

I've been watching movies on Amazon Prime, so the crappy movies I've seen are too numerous to enumerate.

Speaking of crappy movies on Amazon Prime, we watched "The Circle". OMFG what a piece of shit! :pokepoo: We fucking loved it.

Emma Watson is a small-town chick (with a terribly fake American accent) who lands a jerb at Google The Circle. She gets sucked in to the Silicon Valley Kool-Aid bubble like immediately, and then gets all her small-town family and friends involved and violates the hell out of their privacy. Predictably, it all goes horribly wrong.

The cast includes Tom Hanks, Patton Oswalt as a skeezy lawyer, and Fin from Star Wars (I think). Her mother is that awesome red-headed chick from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Mr. Holland's Opus, and the late Bill Paxton plays her father and gives a stellar performance as a man suffering from MS. The blue-faced chick from Guardians of the Galaxy (sans blue face) plays her friend, a high-achieving Australian pill head. By all accounts it feels impossible that a movie with this cast could be so horrible. Yet here we are.

F++++++! Would recommend! :popcorn:

Hacksaw Ridge

Fucking Mel Gibson, man. Seriously. :laugh:

Also: I'm glad we finally acknowledge that no African-Americans were fighting in WW2. Finally!

Fuck you Mel Gibson, you racist asshole.

Well, unfortunately, the truth of WWII history is that the units weren't desegregated yet. Truman didn't desegregate the military until 1948. Thus, while black people did fight, they wouldn't have been in Desmond Doss' unit, the 77th Infantry Division. Pictures of that unit only show white people. Mel Gibson is a genuinely anti-Semitic, racist, and misogynistic PoS, but the portrayal of the 77th is historically accurate and can't be blamed on him. Or, in short, "Fuck the government of the United States." :cangry:

"Absolutely Anything" - Starring Simon Pegg and Kate Beckinsale, directed by Terry Jones. and has Robin Williams' final performance.

All this pedigree, and the movie is fundamentally boring and unfunny.

Simon Pegg's character gets power to do absolutely anything. It's a test from aliens to see if the Earth is worthy of being entered into the galactic supreme council. Failure means the destruction of Earth.

Unfortunately, this movie is cheap and uninspired. Most of of the humor in the movie involves Pegg's character getting his requests misinterpreted - and what's done is cheap looking and lacking in imagination.

I read Nathan Rabin's My World of Flops about it, and I still watched. There must be something wrong with me.

Anyone else have actors or directors who are so repugnant outside of the movies they are involved with that you can no longer enjoy those movies, no matter how good they are? Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson are two of those for me.

Just watched The Greasy Strangler.

Holy shit.

I can barely process what I saw. It's relentlessly weird, disgusting and surreal. It's not a crappy movie exactly, but it's making all sorts of choices. I wouldn't blame anyone for hating it. Heck, I'm pretty sure I hated it.

Do not watch this if you have any aversion to seeing copious amounts of grease, lard, oil and greasy food. I can watch all sorts of things, but dip a hot dog in a pail of grease, and I'm covering my eyes and squirming.

Bright - Netflix "Original" with Will Smith

We even bother if you don't want to do it at least reasonably interesting. Boring nonsense. And also boring.

It's generic and boring. With the subject matter this could have been actually interesting. As it stands this was just one of hundreds of boring buddy cop movies. This should have been a 45 minute pilot for a series, frankly. But as it stands it has a huge budget (USD 90 Million I think) and not much to show for it.

I give it this: it's not quite as god awful as Suicide Squad (from the same "director") but it's close.

Bright was terrible. omg. Will Smith WTF, buddy?

Also 400 Days and Infinity Chamber (also Netflix) TERRIBLE.
