I've actually made the wise choice of seeing Paper Towns tonight instead of Pixels. I guess a 'less-mushy' teen love story is still better than an Adam Sandler comedy where the star looks he doesn't give a crap about his movies or his fans anymore!
Most reviewers I typically rely on have been pretty positive about Paper Towns. If it's anything like the book, it should be just fine. ^_^
Just my personal opinion but I think Paper Towns is the worst of his books. John Green is a fantastic writer but Paper Towns is just eh. It's not bad but I'd recommend three other books by him ahead of it.
@T I actually quite enjoyed the book, but it's not my favorite from John Green. My favorite by far has to be Looking for Alaska. I do agree that he's a fantastic writer though. I rarely read drama/rom-com books, but his writing is well done and intelligently written, which I admire a lot from him.
I think the movie version is particularly good because of how likable some of the teen characters are!
Better Off Dead: The movie with a superior Paperboy feature.
I WANT MY TWO DOLLARS!!!!!
I knew Brad was going to love Trainwreck! I saw it opening night and I thought it was fucking hilarious.
I was about to go into a big ol' bitch-rant about Happy-Madison movies, but then my Mullet senses started tingling and I remembered that Joe Dirt 2 is coming out soon and I'm deeply upset that it's not a theatrical release, soooo, I kind of forfeited my bitch-rights there, heh.
Sandler's still a railroad spike in the frontal lobe, but for the non-Sandler Happy-Madison flicks, hey, I guess it's not all that bad.
Joe Dirt 2 is already out. It was released on Crackle and it can be seen for free. http://www.crackle.com/c/joe-dirt-2-beautiful-loser
Holy crap, I must have been more caught up in my summer semester than I thought, because I thought it was coming out even later in the month.
That being said, what better way to celebrate the completion of 6 grueling weeks of writing essays (and enduring chaotic southern Californian weather) than by shutting one's brain off and watching some Joe Dirt? Than-Kyoo!
Brad there was a shooting during a screening of Trainwreck. 3 people were killed one was the gunmen.
Well, don't leave us in suspense, did Pixels have General Custer from Custer's Revenge or not?
I agree with Sarah, Kingsman is awesome
Damn straight! Kingsman is definitely my favourite movie of the year so far - part of me almost wishes we could just see Brad and Sarah talk about that instead of Pixels.
How fitting that they saw a movie called Trainwreck in conjunction with Pixels.
I know Brad and Sarah mentioned that they will be at Paper Towns; will anyone be at Southpaw tomorrow? Or (less likely) Mr. Holmes?
I know I want to see a midnight screening of Southpaw. I hope they get to do it.
The Penis Movie sounds like an inappropriate trailer to play before a kids' movie.
Omg I'm not the only one who accidentally heard 'Penis Movie'? Thank god. (Although I'm not sure if I'd be surprised if a trailer for that would be in front of an Adam Sandler movie, even if it was made for kids.)
I thought Sarah said penis too. I'm just glad I don't need to Google "penis movie" to figure out what she was talking about.
I can't wait to see how unfathomably angry the Team Snob members who have to see Sisters are once it becomes clear that they'll be seeing THAT opening night instead of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Since Star Wars is such a big movie, I have a feeling they'll all go see it, and Sisters will be postponed to either the nest night or the next week.
BOO! I want to see either an angry Dave, Brian, Irving, or Ryan upset that they didn't see Force Awakens.
Totally agree on Bill Hader.
BTW, I am glad that Colin Quinn is in Trainwreck. I met him a bunch of times. Really nice guy. The worst Weekend Update host ever, but a pretty good standup comic.
So Baskin Robbins always finds out... for real.
I just fell in love for the "creep little dude" at the corner store.
My new goal in life is to go to that store and get to know him.
A man can dream.
Brad, you should make a movie that's just the Brians murdering Adam Sandler characters.
All you'd need to do is gain 12 metric tons and you could play Sandler!
One of the problems I imagine I'd have with Pixels would be what I'm guessing they left out as video game opponents. I didn't see any references to Berzerk (Evil Otto's bouncing menace and robots belittling the players with 'Chicken, fight like a robot!'), or Dig Dug (what could be better than blowing up a Pooka?). Not to mention it seems like they ignored Phoenix and its incredible MotherShip!
I can't stand Adam Sandler. I utterly hate him. He's not funny at ALL. He's either doing a wacky, annoying, voice or he's schleping on to set and sort of saying his lines before he goes back to his trailer to beat-off. If we're very unlucky he does both.
This seems like the "whacking off" variety of Sandler. I used to find Sandler funny.... In the 1990s. But pretty everything he's done this century has been utterly abysmal. I could *probably* get behind "The Cobbler" and "Click It" but, seriously, this guy is too much.
That all said, "Pixels" looks.... "almost" interesting. So, I dunno, maybe I'll check it out in a couple of weeks.
Still find Sarah adorable. :)
'Weiner-coat' is definitely not an actual British insult. Weiner is a pretty American word for dick, never hear people use it here.
Think that was just something the screenwriters bullshat.
I'm willing to stick up with it because its one of the precious couple of times I snickered in the movie.
Brad, I watched Joysticks as a kid... which knowing what's in that movie is actually kind of strange now that I look back on it. I may have to give it a watch again, I have laying around here somewhere. You should do a Snob episode on it.
I'm sure me and everyone here immediately thought of Brad when they made the Caligula joke in Trainwreck.
You should review Southpaw. It was really good.
As a Men's Rights Advocate, I do **NOT** like Amy Schumer. She is a hero of the SJW's and mangina feminists who claim to hate being called sluts, but then she acts like a slut in her movies!! She is almost as bad as liberal hero Lena Dunham who has a crusade against men. Meanwhile, Amy Schumer dates some alpha guy like Lebron James in her movie, while a nice white guy like me gets no response when he tips his fedora at such a lady. I am tired of men being treated like 2nd class citizens!!
As a social justice warrior, I must say that I found both of these films to be very offensive. Clearly, they are more proof that the patriarchy wants to objectify women while keeping them in subservient societal roles.
I find humor to be very offensive, and I demand an apology, which I will not accept.
Also, I find your fedora offensive, and I want its apology, as well. It's almost as offensive as your neck beard, whose apology I won't dignify.
Now, please return to your mother's basement, and resume your online tournament of Call of Duty: Autism Wars.
SJW, I was about to agree with your views on the patriarchal oppression inherent in comedy and with your justified condemnation of MRA's obvious misogynist agenda. However, I noticed that you suggested he retire to his mom's basement and play !Call of Duty. Autism wars. Firstly, I cannot believe that any true SJW would even jokingly promote the blatant warnogrophy of the male dominated gaming industry and then try. to make a cheap joke about MRA's autism. This exposes you as fascist oppressor of the differently abled. I do not want an apology as I refuse to accept the patronising blandishments of the thoughtlessly oppressive as a sufficient acknowledgement of the pain and suffering caused to MRA as well as to countless millions by your vile insinuations.
Talking to yourself is not a good sign, fyi.
The White Knight has a point.
I am deeply offended by my own cheap joke about MRA.
I demand that I apologize to myself!
This schtick is getting old faster than that "Blip" lamesauce...
These are probably the same people who threw fits over Violet's style of laughter. Just ignore them and maybe they'll latch on to some new clever line, like getting outraged over cute cat videos or tweeting about Gamergate.
Trainwreck was great! Schumer was awesome, Cena was also good. Lebron was awful though and Hader wasn't believable as an attractive male lead
"Shaun the Sheep Movie" came out in South Africa in April (for some reason). It's intended for very young children, but it's still pretty good. It doesn't have ANY dialogue, but it's still clear what's going on.
So it turns out that Adam Sandler ripping off Wreck-It Ralph isn't all that good. Not surprised that it has a good soundtrack, though; guy might usually be as funny as a cancer ward, but he does have excellent taste in music.
more Sara. And more Baskin Robbins stories... that guy sounds hilarious.
I'm guessing Joy isn't a remake of the porn movie from 1977.
(which has a character named Pedro who looks suspiciously a lot like Phelous in it)
p.s. you should review that movie
The last Adam Sandler movie I paid for was Hotel Transylvania, and I don't regret it because that's one of those buried treasure movies that has a seemingly stupid premise, but under the direction of Genndy Tartakovsky - the mind behind "The Powerpuff Girls" and "Samurai Jack", it was pretty awesome.
Outside of that, I just can't bring myself to plunk down money for a Sandler comedy. I know he's probably a nice guy, but every character he plays is a douchebag. He makes me sick just looking at him. I am skipping Pixels just because of him.
Tartakovsky didn't create Powerpuff Girls, his friend Craig McCraken did (I've also seen people give creation props for both PPG & Foster's to McCraken's wife Laren Faust too). But Genndy might've written a few scripts or been a producer at some time or another.
The other shows he made other than Samurai Jack was Dexter's Lab & Sym-bionic Titan.
It's a shame that Sony(?) decided to kick him off of that Popeye CG film after Fox & Friends complained that Popeye didn't have tattoos or his pipe, despite nearly everyone else saying they loved it. Hopefully Hotel Transylvania 2 will be good for his sake.
I hope for Gennedy a better career after. Eing held back by that hack
Your far too soft on Pixels Brad, there several episodes of Regular Show that similar premise and themes that JG Quintel does it way better than Sandler sheer laziness, who just want to go on vacation
So no more Blip?
Blip is closing down in less than a month.
Brad, you gotta see "The Vatican Tapes". It's probably one of the funniest horror movies i've seen in a while.
It's what happens when you get one half of the Crank crew to make a "demonic possession" movie and trust me...there's some really funny shit that happens in it.
Oooo! Sarah's arms are showing!!
Saw South Paw what a fantastic movie and a much better choice then Pixels. Pixels trailer looked bad and wanting a Wrek it Ralph 2 instead of any more Adam Sadler movies
Just got back from seeing Southpaw myself and found it to be a solid watch.
I also think that The Vatican Tapes is a much funnier movie than Pixels in addition to being better than Pixels (for what its worth).
As an English person Weinercoat is not an English curse, since we don't really use the word weiner but yeah I'm assuming its a foreskin.
Two amusing reviews, good stuff. I'm glad that my gut reaction to ignore Pixels was decently founded.
Also, I must say, I love reviews with Brad and Sarah. They have great screen chemistry- lots of intelligent back and forth. Good stuff.
Brad said that he'd see Self/less this week. Where's your review for that? Or Paper Towns? Or Mr. Holmes?
So if you and sarah are gonna see paper towns this wednesday whos gonna go see the vacation remake Brad?
Ryan and Brian maybe?
Fun Fact: Weiner Coat, or Weiner Jacket is a british insult for someone who is acting stupid in a gay manner (essentially, a condom).
Mark's story must be continued. Poor guy.
Has Adam Sandler made worse films? Yes. I can definitely say that Jack & Jill, Grown Ups 2, That's My Boy, Blended, and such are way worse than Pixels.
But I think the reason this one has gotten such a vile response (other than yes, it is a bad movie) is because the premise is very cool. It's a fun premise, but it has been wasted by putting it into a lazy, unfunny, uncreative vacuum of an Adam Sandler comedy. If a group of people looked at films like The Last Starfighter, Explorers, Ghosbusters, or even Evolution with David Duchovny (a much better 'Ghostbusters-like' flick than this one) and said 'let's really look at what makes these films work, put a little magic/heart/soul into this extremely fun premise'...then it could have been a Big Winner.
But it wasn't, and I can't understand people being pissed off...because now No One will bother using this fun premise again. It's as if this Premise will now be thrown into the garbage after being used & abused.
So that could be at least One Reason as to why...I mean, when 30 minute films that you can see on youtube like Kung Fury has more imagination/fun/creativity...then yes, that is a big problem for the studios making these flicks (like Pixels). It's just a lazy film that shouldn't have been lazy.
Meant to say "and I CAN understand people being pissed off"...
Why does everyone keep saying how Pixels ripped off Futurama when Pixels is in fact based on the short film by Patrick Jean?
I've ALWAYS hated Adam Sandler. He's rich enough so why can't he go the f*ck away?!
Oh, & take Kevin James with you! I swear if Paul Blart gets another sequel & Dredd still doesn't have ONE I'll (metaphorically) kill myself!!!
As a Englishman i can safely say nobody in England would use the word weiner to describe a penis. Weinercoat is not a English slang word and if a Englishman was to say something similar he wouldve used the word sausage. Weinercoat sounds like something Adam Sandler came up with.
0:48 seconds into the pixels review, and the youtube subtitles said:
"was a huge sucking gaping hole on the male lover"
the youtube changeover that Brad did is gonna add a new dimension to his videos.
gdi i cannot stop laughing about this
I literally forgot that there was a movie called Mama's Boy and it was really bad. In sleep-deprived state, I thought you were talking about Grandma's Boy.
