Hey Brad, you ever seen the movie Mirrors with Kiefer Sutherland? It has a similar plot of a magic mirror that makes people kill each other. Heard it's not very good!
I would've liked to see Draft Day maybe learning something about the process, but for some reason my theater isn't showing it. Instead, I'll be watching The Grand Budapest Hotel. Could be a fun movie!
Oculus is the name of my pet Octopus. hardy har-har. said Jules Verne's Dick.
22:45 on Draft Day. Jake was the Cerebral Plumber!
The highlight and likely the clip Brad will use for the Midnight Screenings in 30 Seconds.
Jake is the South Park version of Steve Irwin. Awesome.
That non-title hashtag thing does bother me normally too, but I do like that the hashtag for the Fargo series is #awjeez.
That made me laugh.
Okay, so admittedly this has nothing to do with this week's review, but I just have to ask:
There was a review once where Jake just matter-of-factly said "I'm happy", and I can't remember what it is. Does anyone remember which movie that was?
It might have been Amazing Spiderman or X-Men First Class.
Checked those, they weren't there.
That's My Boy?
I'll check, but I doubt it; I think he was genuinely happy.
Checked That's My Boy; wasn't there.
Checked it; wasn't there.
Any other ideas?
You checked the Midninght in 5secs vids? maybe they help? cause I got no idea
Checked those; no dice.
I agree with you on Oculus, Brad. I thought this thing felt sort of old fashioned in that it relies heavily on atmosphere.
Not great, but you know what? Not bad, either.
So you didn't send Jake and Irving to Rio 2? (I haven't watched the Oculus review yet, so they might bring this up.)
I mean Draft Day, not Oculus.
That's probably one of the movies that didn't get a midnight screening. A lot of the kid movies (especially the ones studios aren't especially proud of) tend to do that.
I don't think that's it. You can try to make up theories why things don't get Midnight screenings all you want. No, Fox is not embarrassed of Rio 2 that much considering they are pushing it on TV a lot.
Jake's on top of my draft board in the 2014 Hunk Draft.
Actually Slaver Brian is #1 due to the kink factor, but I would be lying to say he'd be "on top" for anything.
Draft Day just looks like nothing to me. I'm always one of those, "Wait and see," people when it comes to the NFL. I can't get excited about what kind of a player a team adds right now in the off-season. The supposed "drama" of getting a number one draft pick is lost on me. I doubt that there's anything like that in real life NFL business either.
Draft Day looks like a middle-aged and older equivalent of Rio 2. It's just there to occupy that certain age group for about two hours. A babysitter for Baby Boomer men.
Where's the babysitter for cynical guys like MikeK?
Isn't it though? What could possess a person to watch a movie like Draft Day?
I am Chicago Bears fan, though, so it pays to not get too excited. ;)
He wasn't an arrogant, condescending dick about it. There's a difference between talking about how a movie doesn't look very good (a movie by the way that isn't getting very good reviews) and name calling the entire audience of a well regarded film, which is what you did.
I don't know Mike. Maybe Kevin Costner, Denis Leary. Maybe because people like watching movies about football. Why do people go to movies anyway? They should sit at home and not bother at this point if people like you are going to generalize and mock them about it.
I hope you are meaning Mike here.
Oh I get it, you mean me. Oh well then, same to you, considering you told me how wrong I was in my opinion to Dredd. How condescending and rude can you get.
As for the negative reviews to Draft Day, I could care less. I don't listen to others about how good a movie is. I go see it myself.
If you mean my telling the fanboys of Dredd off about there being a sequel and calling that wish delusional. Why yes, I did that. Because it's not far from the truth. No sequel to Dredd is happening.
As for that movie being well regarded. PFFFTTTT, whatever, by critics who I don't listen to anyway. By select fanboy audiences who thought it was KOOL.
By the way, I'm actually fairly certain Draft Day will make more money than Dredd did. Oops, maybe Draft Day 2 will be a possibility instead of a Dredd 2. In fact sticking a diseased rodent on the screen for 90 minutes would probably make more money than Dredd did. That's not even being dickish to the audience. There was barely any. I can't quite be dickish to an audience that wasn't there to begin with.
No Daniel I do is remind you fanboys to like a movie, but not get super rabid about you fandom. Because that's what you did. Got too rabid. All I'm doing is say how delusional you are for expecting a sequel and then demanding it like a whiny child that doesn't even realize that Dredd isn't even in the top 100 rentals of Netflix.
I didn't call you morons, I just called you delusional. That's not being much of a dick, a real dick would say only morons and geeks liked Dredd. Which isn't the truth.
But you my friend Daniel, you just say I'm wrong, I don't say anyone is wrong for liking the movie, they are welcome to the cheap junk. I don't say anyone is wrong for disliking a movie. Just not being a generalizing cynic who judges people who goes to see them.
I'm not wrong for hating Dredd, I'm right in my opinion to hate that crappy piece of garbage just as much as Brad is allowed to hate things constantly. I don't sit here and say, who would want to watch Dredd? I actually get why people go see movies and am at least open to it. Not a judgmental, generalizing jerk.
Just so you guys know, here's the type of thing "Robert" is used to writing:
That explains a lot.
Funny thing about the biting into a bulb thing Brad. I did that as a young child with a red Christmas tree ornament, thinking that it looked an awful lot like an apple. I can't remember that far back, but I'm told by my parents that all the pieces came out ok, no need for ER visits, and my tongue was most certainly not cut in half. :P
Oh no, Brad's taken up smoking!
Quick, send him a message informing him that its bad for his health! Just like eating at McDonalds and fucking potentially STD ridden ET costumes!
Well my Nudies, Rudies and Crudies came today and I have to say that watching Brad casually review a movie ina full state of dress feels a little odd post seeing-his-wang.
I feel a little closer to him now. Not "buddies" close but more like an "I've seen your dick" kind of close. Like the closeness you feel for a funny uncle or the man in the window across the street.
I don't know if you guys have The Raid 2 yet in Springfield, but when you do, do you plan on reviewing it? Thanks.
Goddamn! I really need to get in the habit of at least watching the first five minutes of these before asking questions. Looking forward to the Raid 2 review for damn sure and seeing it in about an hour myself.
Thanks for posting this though, because that was going to be my question too! By the way, I just posted a little "character study" on the The Raid 2 IMDb board if anyone is interested in reading it. I think the characters are a major reason why The Raid 2 is so damn great.
No problem. And sure, go for it.
As well as that, there was a good dose of scenery porn throughout The Raid 2, knowing that these meticulous sets were soon to be destroyed in wonderfully violent ways.
One can hope that if Jillian had been there for the draft day review that we could have still gotten a thumb up the ass story.
oh god LOL
i couldn't stop laughing when Jake went off on his 'dick count' tangent
My biggest problem with the Smurfs movies was that they go to our world in them. No one going to see a Smurfs movie wants to see Smurfs Take Manhattan. Granted the writing would be terrible, regardless.
Jake's probably always been my favorite member of the Snob crew
Damn.....remind me not to get on the bad side of Jake 'The Thumb' Norvell. Ooo-ch.
The Draft Day discussion turned downright exciting the second that Jake and Irving started talking about wrestling.
No big deal, just wondered why you post the reviews out of order?
Shouldn't the bottom review be on top since it was seen first?
I think it's because that Brad's the main character of the Cinema Snob, and that's why the reviews are out of order.
Reviews are placed in order of the movie's popularity, or how it's genre fits with the site. There are many many times when the top video was shot after the 2nd episode. Whoever's movie gets out first is always the video that gets shot first.
i have a theory about why on Draft Day, they would make those swipe shots of the cities and the teams: they are aiming to foreign markets. I know jake said that you would´nt watch it if you are not into the NFL, but i think it´s the only theory i can come up with that explains such move. Thats my two cents for now
I have a clay kiln that heats my doors!!! Gotta love Irving
This review peaked with the utterance of "Bo Titties". The riffing on sports was fine but it just never got back up to the level of "Bo Titties".
Wow, Jake must have a really long thumb if he can get inside an opponent's head and fuck with his head by thumbing his butt. Unless the other guy's head was simply up his ass.
With that thumb in the ass move, they could have used Jake in Demo Reel.
Admiral Crackers says: "All hands on the poop deck!"
So not looking forward to Draft Day. I think that football is the most overrated sport ever. I'd rather see Transcendence, which is coming out next week, and is a film I actually want to see.
At least Draft Day doesn't have the plot of every other sports movie, though.
I too look forward to seeing Lawnmower Man 3.
dude ur gay as fuck
Brad, you seem to be sticking to your ecig thing pretty well, but if you miss the feel of the smoke in your lungs, go for the component ecig/vaporizer stuff instead of the pre-fab gas station cheapos it looks like you're using. Then again, maybe you just bought a component peace that still has that cheesy cherry on it. 100 bucks should buy you a nice durable piece where you'll only need to refill the nicotine solution and recharge the battery, and there are solutions that even satisfy me with the feeling in my throat and lungs, and I am not satisfied by even the loosest filters on actual cigarettes.
ecig is pure poison, WORSE than normal sigarettes....
enjoy toking air plane fuel
No, it simply isn't. Far less of the harmful ingredients found in regular cigarettes. What possesses a person to type up such utter bollocks and actually post it? What's wrong with you?
rofl idiot buying the salespitch xd
Maybe not those in sigarettes no, but other ones way more dangerous,
Those things are a death sentence for real, but who am I even talking to?! If you still trust authorities to care about you and your health instead of profit in 2014 you are bloody ignorant...
Already calling the Midnight Screening in 5 seconds clip for Draft Day being "I've seen so much dick."
All this wrestling talk . . . you guys are alright.
I have to say, while I did enjoy Oculus on some level, the movie is more worth it for Karen Gillan looking sexy as hell in it more than for the movie itself.
as for the WWE movies i've seen theatrically, i guess Oculus is the best. mainly by default. as it is the only GOOD one. lol
I think Brad knew exactly which movies are coming out next week. and just didn't have the heart to tell Brain and Dave about Haunted House 2. that he is totally sending them to. unless that counts as a tyler perry movie.
Mr. Brad Jones, you need to watch this movie called - Filth. it's sort of an English/Scotish Bad Lieutenant, but so much mentaler! Check it out dude, and I hope you like it as much as I did!
Is this thing with Jerrid something new? The way I heard it, he stopped appearing in stuff here because of an incident at a con, but it sounds like there was something pretty major recently between him and Jake.
Also, wow, the Draft Day review turned out to be the most fantastically homoerotic review I've seen on this site, and this coming from someone who bought the recent DVD :P
Thanks to Jake and Irving for articulating my thoughts about pro-wrestling. And Jake, if you've never seen "Beyond the Mat", you've got to see it, man. It sounds like exactly the wrestling movie you've been wanting to see. Shows the industry and all the ups and downs that go with it.
Oh, and I've heard of that little thumb trick you used to use in wrestling, except down here they call it "Checking for Oil".
When my Dad & I was shopping for sports hats, he was wearing a Seattle Seahawks jacket and while paying for his brother's Green Bay Packers hat he pulls out his Pittsburg Steelers wallet and the clerk says " you like the Steelers and Seahawks?" And my Dad says Yeah I'm bi. The was the funniest thing I had ever heard, and I don't watch football that much. Very true what Jake said, even if you like two teams.
P.S. GO SEAHAWKS!!!!!
Brad when you were talking about looking forward to seeing a movie sequel when you didnt like the first movie, how about Ghost Rider 2 where Nic Cage pisses fire in the trailer
YES! YES! YES!
If you want to see Jake take on Brad inside Hell In A Cell at Wrestlemania 31 with the loser having to watch Smurfs 3 give me a hell yeah!
Man, forget Ric Flair; Jake's the dirtiest player in the game!
I kiss every dude I see and only have buttsex twice a week, BUT im the straigtest person ever.... Yeah right brah xd
Given your vehement dislike for Blair Witch 2, I am now curious to hear what you would think if you saw the "director's cut" Cecil Trachtenburg has put together.
am i the only one who thinks brad is kinda not now when he is thin?
Jake should see The Wrestler.
Yeah, I gotta say, the review for Draft Day, even though it was for a totally forgettable movie, was one of the most entertaining midnight screening videos you guys have done in a long time. Just listening to Irving and Jake talk about pro football, pro wrestling, playing baseball or wrestling as a kid, going to rock concerts and everything else was both fun as hell, and stuff that I could really identify with. I grew up in and currently live in Seattle, and what Jake said about the 12th man is spot on. I was never a big football fan growing up, but I became a big fan of the Seahawks over the last year, watching the games on tv at home with my folks, and going to the stadium to watch it live when we can. Even if you've never been big into football, it is a lot of fun to just get caught up in it all. And of course, nothing compares to live music. I think I could listen to those guys talk about just about anything, and it would be great.
I don't think I'm using hyperbole when I say that the Draft Day review was the funniest goddamn thing on the site. Bless you two for doing it.
Saw Oculus today. Didn't really like it. As Brad said, it did kinda remind me of Book of Shadows. A LOT. Oculus was better than BW2, but not by much in my book.
It had a few good scenes (like the apple/lightbulb thing), but overall, I didn't really like it. The most I can say was that at least I wasn't pissed off when I left the theater; it was more like "Eh. That was an evening, I guess."
Oculus was such an original, cool concept.
Too bad the filmmakers ****** it up.
Less than average movie for something that could have been a 10/10.
@ Draft Day
Very good review. I hate sports but listening to the conversation from Brian and Jake was interesting.
Jillian still needs to see the movie. Please send her to this movie for reviewing.
Saw Oculus last night and it wasn't too bad. The acting was all around solid, especially Karen Gillan and her childhood counterpart. As bad as child actors often are, these kids sold their plight quite well. I didn't find it as scary as say, The Conjuring, but Paul Oakenfield did a great job with the sound mix in setting up a very unsettling atmosphere. Damn if the lightbulb scene wasn't effective and unsettling, even if it was spoiled in the trailers and in the review. Seeing that on a massive screen is just. Damn. I did go and see it with a friend, so having someone cowering on my shoulder half the time certainly dimmed the fear factor as well. And let's be honest, who didn't see the warehouse scene and think "Don't blink"?
It wasn't perfect, but the jump scares were earned and not wasted, which is more than you can say for most modern horror films these days.
Not a wrestling fan, but apparently in the match Jake and Irving were talking about, when Mick Foley got chokeslammed through the cage it was unplanned. Nobody knew the cage was going to fail, which is why Foley ended up landing so awkwardly.
I actually liked Blair Witch 2, I am not a critic, nor do I want to claim to be, and I get most people think it is shit, but I really got into it, as a Blair Witch sequel, I further understand disappoint, but I like it as its own entity... so let me just be one of the rare few who really enjoyed it... I get the hate, its a different movie than the first, I don't get the lack of support tho, surely someone likes BW2?
Best review since watching about sex in the theatre.... Jake had me lol on this!
Hey Brad, I worked for a few independent wrestling promotions here in Ohio, and if Jake wants, I could tell him all about how things work backstage in an email or something.
Remind me never to eat a light bulb again, LOL
