I only want to see the video, shame Im here too soon
Wait thirty minutes to an hour instead of whining.
nah, whining is more satisfying.
At least this gives us all some time to grab some popcorn right?
Yes, he politely pointed out a fact. What a whiner.
Dang it, Brad. You should have been evil and sent Brian and Dave to Behaving Badly. 0% on RT! They're the Selena Gomez guys cuz they saw Getaway. Unless.... wait? Did you guys even get that film?
"IT'S THE GETAWAY! I KILL YA WIFE!"
"NOOOO! YOU'RE A BAD DRIVER!"
betting they'll hype it up before I start the vid....
the film sucks yet another rape of comic material by hollywood and this time its even the most childish comic book ever
how surprising, between all the nonsense talk there is only dumb hype, you guys getting paid for this?
Go hang out at Hadley's page if all you want is depressing bitter old cynicism.
nope I dont want that, I want people giving their honest opinion instead of being so obviously bought, sorry to see you guys sold your souls about a year ago
So anyone whose opinion isn't the same as yours are automatically insincere sell-outs? What the fuck are you mumbling on about you dolt?
Well, I don't know what your problem is. They're just having some laughs and talking about a movie.
Quit yer bitchin'!
Let me guess. You LOVED Man of Steel, didn't you?
Is that you Josh?
Saw it; Loved it!
I still can't believe how many people left when the credits rolled.
Am I the only one who's seen a Marvel movie? We should all know by now that you stay till the end of the credits for the last minute tidbit.
I had a fucking blast at this. What I really appreciated was that there wasn't a single slow moment. The entire thing moved along at such a fast pace from beginning to end.
And I did see it in 3D. It still had the atmospheric 3D like all the films nowadays, but a LOT MORE of the popping in-your-face 3d like you guys would like.
so its an ADHD film for the mentally retarded? thought so
Hi, Faggot Josh.
I haven't watched the Midnight Screening yet but did anyone notice that the final fight between Zoe Saldana and a female henchman was beat for beat the same as the final fight between Captain America and The Winter Soldier?
That sums up my feeling on this movie's climax, sadly. It was mostly fun but the climax felt like a boring rehash of The Avengers and Captain America 2.
So glad you guys liked the movie. It's tied with Captain America 2 as my favorite Marvel movie. This year has been a damn good year for the company.
I'll take 2 tickets to Bradcon please. I heard the ballpit will be sponsored by Crystal Pepsi.
When i went to get my ticket for this, i asked the teller, "Two for the guardians of Ga'hoolixy" She didn't get it. Movie rocked though
Hey, atleast then Man of Steel fanboys'll stop bitching about Marvel movies, maybe just for once.
this movie fucking sucks so bad. Hercules is the best movie .
you guys are fucking lame
Shut up, Brett. Sure Hercules was cool, but just because you're still angry about X-Men: Days of Future Past retconning X3: The Last Stand out of continuity doesn't mean you have to take it out on this movie. Why don't you go make Rush Hour 4? Oh, wait, I'm sorry, no one wants that movie.
Aw come on Brett, we still liked Hercules, no need to get sad :P
I am Groot.
We are Groot!
http://thecinemasnob.forumotion.com/t1291p15-josh-hadley-photoshop-thread For anyone curious
Hey, I take offense to that.
So Sarah and Dave are dating now?
Great movie. My only real issue is that as much as I liked him as an antagonist, Ronan felt like a better developed rehash of Malekith from Thor The Dark World.
So did anyone else notice they all got out of the car at the end? Did they just film this review in some random, unlocked car in the parking lot?
A Ball-Pit? Dashcon sucks! At Briancon we have a beard and glasses pit! Go for a quick swim and come out looking like everyone's favourite slaver!
And this year we'll make sure that not as many drunken hobos and child molesters use it to hide out from the cops. I can personally guarantee that there won't be a repeat of the Rolf Harris incident.
I thought at Briancon, you all got slaves?
The Brian Imitator Competition is actually a slave auction where competitors take it in turns to auction off sentient RVs.
Special Q&A panel with LeVar Burton
I misread "Ball-Pit" as "Brad Pitt" because I am tired and my new meds are messing with my vision slightly. Suddenly, Dashcon sounded 20% cooler (like I could pass on that joke when the thing was called Dashcon). What I wouldn't do with an extra hour swimming in Brad Pitt. Or Flaming Brian, for that matter.
Shouldn't any pits at Briancon be filled with Blair's Ultra Death hot sauce or similar, though? Perhaps a "How Long Can You Brave the Pit" contest with a prize being the opportunity to out-flame Flaming Brian via a super-hot pepper or sauce eating contest? Because I'd so be into that.
I saw this yesterday, too. I thought it was alright. Let's see what Brad and the gang thinks.
Hey as bad as things may have gone with your theater's projector at least this didn't happen:
When Sarah and I went to go see Ender's Game, they started playing The Fifth Estate instead.
The projectionist was just a fan of the show that didn't appreciate Brad's Friday The 13th Part 3 review.
By Faggot Josh's Beard! This comment is great. :D
Personally thought the first third of the film was to exposition heavy. I mean seriously the first time we see the villain is him literally just telling his back story to some random guy for no reason whatsoever before killing him. It all just felt clunky in that regard. Same with drax who just walks in and announces his back story ;p
All that said once the prison break stuff started the film was a blast from that point onwards and the 3D was gorgeous. It's to bad your theater screwed it up. Luckily when the theaters in my town screw up the 3D they fix it or they just turn it off and give you a free movie pass and let you watch it in 2D or you can leave in which case they give you two free movie passes.
The villain is pretty much the only thing I didn't like about this.
I think the villain being an overly dramatic unreasonable nigh omnipotent zealot helped his scenes with the Guardians immensely...
Particularly one scene with Star Lord. You know the one...
And the one where Rocket Raccoon drops in...
I can't say those scenes would have been as funny without that stock villain to make into the butt of the joke...
Soooooo a Ryan Reynolds wannabe, a green warrior chick, a TALKING RACCOON (wtf?!), giant tree guy & a big green goon played by of all people Dave Bautista are the heroes huh?
If I want that nonsense I watch Green Lantern again. . .
or just wait for SIN CITY 2,which looks like a lot of fun!
On that note, why can't "Linkara" just get over his hated & move on? Yes, Mr. Miller's led down the crapper a bit, but the great Stan Lee did cameos in both Cap movies, yet
he had NOTHING AT ALL to do with Cap's creation, but he makes
cameos in most of the
Marvel films so whatever. . .
Miller writes mostly noir inspired stories that happen to have babes in lingerie using guns. . . why the hell would I complain?! "It's sexist crap blah, bitch, nag", don't read it then! Miller will always be the man who gave us "DKR" & "YEAR ONE", two of the BEST Batman stories ever. Personally, I hate that we're Never gonna get a Dredd sequel. . . but I'm over it! (almost)
UGH, I know right? A since can Raccoons function like that in the DAYLIGHT? Feh. Unrealistic. Zero Stars.
Assuming you're mocking ME, I didn't mean it's unrealistic (in fact I frown upon comic book movies trying be being too realistic *cough Nolan's Batman cough*). I meant that sounds f*cking stupid.
If that wasn't aimed at me I apologize, Mr. Scotty. . .
Outside of anything else, why is most of your comment complaining about a reviewer that isn't apart of this video, I have no memory being referenced in the video, and only connection to this video is it's a comic book movie. I'm just curious...is all.
Well Tony. Nobody wants a war, ha ha. If we can't do business why, we'll just shake hands & that'll be it. . . oh, sorry!
Well, I voiced my opinion on "Guardians" & then thought of Sin City 2, which led to a random & unrelated rant. Odd, since I haven't watched his show in a long time. Hey, I'm constantly angry what the hell do I know, right?
Because he knows Linkara reads and approves the comments at his own site.
Frank Miller is a racist piece of shit. Stan Lee is the mostly harmless grandfather of the comic book industry. Oh yeah, they're totally comparable.
Are you mentally ill?
its been a year since the Smurfs 2 review let that sink in
So one of the funniest movies of the year comes with one of the funniest Midnight Screening reviews? I approve of this, Team Snob.
The solution to that 3D problem, if I'm understanding your description correctly, is that there is a filter that sometimes gets stuck and needs to be manually pushed into place. It's a 5 second fix if the employees can be bothered to deal with it. Any manager should know how to handle it, hell, even the head chef at my theater can do it.
They're making an "Ant Man" movie? Jesus. . .
Also, you don't mess with Wasp, for she apparently has a following but it's alright to turn THE JOKER into a grungy, lip licking, hobo Crow cosplayer? Again, I'm trying to get over it. . .
Wait, you hated Heath Ledger's version, what the hell?
Not HATE, I just think it's a tad over rated. (Rant coming on, sorry)
I liked Heath's acting, I actually saw "10 Things I Hate About You" & was delighted to see future Hollywood isn't FULL of talentless drones, thanks to Ledger & Joseph Gordon Levitt. When I heard of Heath being cast I didn't piss the bed in fear like everyone who said "Ugh! Brokeback Mountain guy? Wtf!" I was too busy trying to find a movie where he cracked a nice big smile. Eventually finding "A Knight's Tale", where he made a beautiful (clenched teeth baring) Joker-esque smile & I was psyched! Point being it's not SO much his acting, per say, in fact for two days I couldn't stop thinking about it! But his appearance really threw me off (Bale's Bat-voice didn't help, which sucks 'cause he was great in "Begins". Who told him to go over the top?!). But hey, I'm used to the usual Joker who kills people while telling a joke at their expense so I'll stick to that. After all he got an award for this, though I thought Javier Bardem as Anton Chigur should've won, but whatever. So what's it matter if ONE random"whiny bitch" isn't a big fan?
Um...dude...Javier Bardem DID win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 2008 for No Country For Old Men. Heath Ledger won in 2009.
Brad here's a series of smart assy images that explain Star-Lord's origin.
Oh, he did? Glad to hear it, he absolutely deserved it.
I hate to be a whiney bitch. . . again, but I wish there was a full movie about Anton Chigur.
Damn, what a character!
Star Lord started out as Astrological Space Jesus actually. And basically stole and killed his way into becoming the space protector Star Lord (even though he was apparently destined to be Star Lord anyway since he was Astrology Space Jesus).
Ok, ok. Let's not have this be clogged with fan boy hissy fits. I sincerely apologize.
Stan Lee is awesome, I never denied that. Sorry Mr. Lee (I'm sure he reads these)
Sorry Linkarrrra & his fans.
Sorry "Morhek", I've only read "DKR", "Year One" & some "Daredevil". So I'll take your word he's racist.
Finally, sorry Brad & Team Snob. I'm only laughing on the outside, my smile is just skin deep.
Sorry again, EVERYBODY!
God forbid people call you out for being a whiny bitch.
Jeez Bob (assuming you're a full grown adult, I refuse to call you "Bobby"), I apologized ever so sincerely. What more do you require?
But by all means, call me out on my whiny bitchiness.
Let me help, here's the usual business. . .
"Why does NOBODY like the Daredevil movie?!"
"Why isn't anybody else excited for BATFLECK?!"
"Why is Man of Steel HATED so much?!"
And of course. . .
"Why can't Dredd get ONE f*cking sequel?!"
This is sarcasm, of course, I can imagine the responses. So don't bother :-)
Except that your "apology" comes across as insincere and passive aggressive, and as an attempt at claiming persecution to justify your opinions. YOU can't be wrong, it's just that we're intolerant of your opinion. I don't even know why you're apologising to me in the first place, or why my username is in "quotation marks", but I'm choosing to take it as an attempt at insult and ignoring it.
You don't even have to take my word for it. Or Linkara's, if you can't be bothered watching his reviews to see just how bad Miller's recent stuff has been. You could just read the comics - I'm sure there's digital issues of All Star Batman and Robin, Batman vs Spawn, or Holy Terror out there. The evidence speaks for itself.
How dare you make a good midnight screenings about a good movie? This is blasphemy and I will be reporting you to the internet Vatican!
This movie is great best Marvel movie thus far (if you don't agree that is fine), the 3D was good and glad i forced myself to see it that way. It was a real shame that your screening had messed up 3D
Thanks for posting these Brad. I don't get to have conversations like these with any of my friends as none of them are big movie lovers. I watch movies in theatres by myself. These are the the types of conversations I want to have with people.
Hm, wonder if the will to Battle of Gods, if they have it in the theaters they go to.
I want to go to BRADcon!!!
Oh man I love that you talked about Dashcon XD I was on tumblr hearing about it as it was happening and any jokes related to it are just hilarious to me XD
Also I really want to point out that Lee Pace was Legolas' father Thranduil, the king of the elves. (I know you probably don't care that much but I'm a pretty big Lee Pace fan ><, though i do admit his character was pretty cliche in this. I really liked him in the part though.)
Really enjoyed the review anyways, I was some what hoping you guys would mention Karen Gillian's performance.
I actually decently liked the villain. He probably would've grated on me more if he got more scenes, but they kept him short, sweet, and to the point. I thought his design was awesome, even if his motivations were a little cliche.
But it was kind of funny, the entire time he's talking about how his father was killed, and his father's father was killed, and so on, all I could think of was the social justice warriors on tumblr who insist that anyone merely a part of an "oppressive" group is scum that should die. Maybe that's why I liked him more than you did, Brad, it was kind of cathartic to see someone who embodied one of my least favorite things get his ass kicked.
On the subject of the movie in general, it really reminded me how much I missed ~fun~ in space-faring sci-fi. We've had so many grimdark ones, it was a breath of fresh air to have a movie with just sheer insanity and NEON BRIGHT COLORS.
What? No review for the James Brown biopic, Get On Up? How come, Brad?
Because there wasn't enough people to go see it, plus I was in too much pain to sit through two movies.
Sorry to hear you were in pain, Brad. Hope you get to feeling better. Would love to hear your opinion on Get On Up.
Someone did in fact set "Brian and his asshole friends at the movies" as an alternate title on imdb.
I didn't see Howard The Duck until the post-credits scene either.
I find it funny/ironic how you guys were complaining about the projector going out of focus and then your camera does the same thing towards the middle for a little bit.
Because a handheld camera having a brief auto focus problem is exactly the same as a mainstream movie projector fucking up that no one fixes even though multiple people tell them to fix it.
hay brad are you going to The Conjuring Annabelle this October
Hell yes =)
How do you go from James Wan to the guy who directed Mortal Kombat Annihilation?
Someone with photoshop skills please make a Guardians poster with the Snob team, featuring Brad as Rocket and Brian as Groot. :)
Brad as Rocket? Is that a short joke? If so it was funny
And Lloyd as Chris Pratt, because he's the star of this site :3
Indeed it was LloydFan, that and like Rocket, Brad is also charming, witty, and adorable, pint size and little hands aside. :P And yes, Lloyd as Star Lord for certain, he'd rock that mask. Now we just need Mike White as Nick Fury. And a role for FJ.
Brian has to be The Collector...
I know you guys don't spoil things when it's a good movie (which given the reviews out already it seems like it totally is) but I'm still waiting until tomorrow to watch the Midnight Screenings because that means I'm in for a double-feature of awesome! :3
Always love to see a tangent-filled video. Watching you guys hang out and bullshit and laugh is the tits. I have no idea why it's so appealing, but it just is. Bless this series and the folks who endure so many shitty movies to entertain all us wobbly little dildos.
haha more overlapping dialogue than a Robert Altman film
I like the ending. Nice touch. I prefer you guys all leaving the car rather than reaching for the camera.
Can't we just enjoy Brad's videos & comment without someone complaining or forcing opinions on you? Just once? Great vid as always, guys!
With his shave and a haircut, Brian looks like a young Lars von Trier.
*Brian and His Asshole LIBTARD Friends.
Aw, do Bwad and his fwiends disagwee with you powiticawwy on something? You poow wittle thing.
You mean like the other douchebag crying about Frank Miller's "racism?" But I guess it's only "immature whining" when it's not coming from your camp, right?
re: unredoric - I'm going to assume you meant me in that comment. Firstly, you don't know if I'm a liberal or a conservative or whether I couldn't give less of a shit about American politics. Because I don't. Secondly, I'm not the one crying about someone from ANOTHER SITE. Third, and this goes to everyone...get over it, already. If you don't like Dave, what the fuck ever. We're sick of it though. This isn't a political site. Go complain on the Huffington Post or Fox News comments sections for the love of god.
unrederic: I'm not sure how calling a guy who's been making racist comments and comics for years now a racist is somehow part of the liberal agenda. I'm pretty middle of the road, vote liberal or conservative based on the individual candidates and don't treat politics like sporting events.
Politics don't need to enter in at all: Miller's a racist. Unless racism is a conservative trait, I don't see a connection between saying Miller's being racist and dragging politics into it.
Democrat, Republican, Libertarian whatever--one who gets butthurt over some guy on the internet not sharing his or her views isn't a politically-minded individual looking out for what's best for his or her country and its citizens. Rather, he or she's a twatty fanatic with little perspective and no goddamn sense. Again, it's not like backing one's favorite team.
All these keyboard warriors are doing is swearing their shit smells better than the shit on the other side of the political divide while wanking over their 'team' winning or salving their sore asses with their own angry tears when their 'team' loses. The bosses change, but the system rolls along not much better or worse with minor exceptions depending on which dipshits managed to get their dipshits in power. And life goes on pretty much the same until next election cycle where new dipshits get in and carry on exactly like the last batch.
I reckon shit-sniffing wankers sums it up as well as need be.
"Boo hoo hoo, the 3D was out of focus." Just see it in 2D, like, you know, A FUCKING FILM IS MEANT TO BE SEEN!
I guess you REALLY like seeing cardboard cutouts in front of a matte painting, and severe migraines. Bet you're HUGE fans of the Virtual Boy, too.
Or maybe it's because we see it in 3D so that we can also REVIEW the 3D. You think we'd be seeing something like Planes 2 also if it weren't for the sake of reviewing it as well? That's kinda what we do dude.
You tell him Brad. You can do no wrong!
Ha! Well that's just plain not true ;)
Sellout. Everybody who knows film knows that silent and black and white is how "A FUCKING FILM IS MEANT TO BE SEEN!" Trust me: I took a film class in college, and now I'm an expert.
You fuckers and your fancy talkies...and don't get me started on movies filmed in color. There's obviously only one correct way to watch films, and ur doin' it wrong.
I'm pretty sure this particular film was supposed to be viewed in 3D.
:( so sad they didn't talk about the blaxploitation anne trailer more then just saying it's name lol. When I saw that in the theaters I was interested to see what brad thought of that.
I'm not thrilled that Ant-Man seems rudderless since Edgar Wright left (which was Marvel's REAL misstep in allowing that), but I like the bits I'm hearing about the story (though I'm a bit of a Scott Lang fan). And with Pym being an older guy they can now go back and we can have Pym adventuring in the 70s, 80s, & 90s.
Lee Pace was also the lead in the TV show Pushing Daisies. Right now he's on AMC's Halt and Catch Fire, which more people should watch. His biggest movie role is probably the lead in Tarsem Singh's The Fall.
I'm extremely disappointed that you and Alison didn't go to Dashcon. I suddenly look forward to next year's for something other than the fandom wank. That con seemed like it was so much more fun for those who didn't attend. Kinda like a Jake review.
I would definitely take that extra hour in the ball pit at Snobcon. Minus the shit. I'll pass on the poo-born diseases. I bet Brian's (canceled at the last minute) panel on "Slave-owning: How to Use Your Beard for Profit" would be a huge draw.
Brian's beard could have a con on its own.
The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was a great space adventure movie, but if you are at all familiar with the comics this movie made a lot of changes. So many changes in fact that it might as well be another reboot of the mythos. Don't go into this movie believing it will be accurate to the comics because it's not. Just have fun with it.
Brad! Just curious, but are any of you going to see Behaving Badly? I mean, damn, a 0% on RT?! .... Looks like a fun, but very pissed off, review! xD
Brad was right, originally in the comics Star-Lord was a title given to a sort of space cop. However, Peter Quill sort of stole the title after his colleague was selected over him.
DUMB STUPID RETARDED PIECES OF SHIT. WHITE RACIST HUMAN WASTE. BAD TASTE IN MOVIES. OOGIE LOVES WAS PURE ART! FUCK YOU
Slaver Brian and his Property
God, if Dave and Brian got any nerdier...
Also there are points in this review where Brad sounds like Eddie Murphy.
There's been a lot of hype for this one, and everyone really seem to love it. But for some reason i just can't muster up any enthusiasm, i think i'm completely burned out on all these Marvel movies and don't really know if i can stand to watch another one.
I can't believe none of you pointed out that Gamora was basically a completely new character. She's a fucking sociopath in the comic books. I mean she's awesome but she's like Xena before Xena turned good. Even after she decided to be good herself. She loved to murder and fuck. I also miss her sword.
Funny enough, my buddy Paul and I got Rocket Raccoon pins last night when we saw this film. I pinned mine to one of the epaulets on my coat!
So the Rocket Raccoon pin is the rare one or something?
1. This is what the Green Lantern movie should have been.
2. Did anyone think Karen Gillan was fucking hot in this?
We guarded the shit out of that shit!
This movie had amazing 3D!! Rocket was the best part!
"You were married to her!"
"She had her eyes closed, I don't know!"
Wish you guys and gals had talked about the soundtrack which had really awesome songs like "Go all the way" and "Moonage Daydream" and what moments you liked best or one-liners.
oh well. whatevs! good review anyways.
Absolutely fantastic movie. And easily what Avengers should have been. This movie was just so ridiculously self-aware. It threw together a bunch of people from vastly different walks of life, and they played with that. Avengers spent like 5 minutes doing that. GotG spent like the film doing that, and it made it feel just so natural and real.
Dave looks like PSH.
so brian and dave are weiner cousins. that must be....awkward
Dave and Brian kept talking about balls because they wanted to go home with each other.
