It's sad, Blue Skies Studios had some promise but clearly they're falling down the same path of destruction Dreamworks was early in their career.
Sorry to hear your week's been a long one, Brad.
Maby they should do what dreamworks did and steal Chris Sanders from disney.
Either Bluesky is gonna fall into obscurity, or they'll shake things up enough to stay relevant.
Shame. I actually think most Blue Sky films have been okay all in all. Guess this time they struck out. Who knows, maybe I'll like this when I actually get around to seeing it a couple years or so from now.
You can tell Jake I thought this movie was "Rio-ly, Rio-ly Good".
Not really, I just know you want more puns to use on him.
I don't like puns, they're for the birds.
God, I watched that whole Giraffe thing you mentioned voicing just to hear the TWO lines you said at the end. It's on YouTube for anyone interested http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-q86gdECcg
Been waiting LONG and HARD for Sasquatch week to begin, but this will suffice. Good thing I'm watching Draft Day this weekend because the rest of this weekend's releases (aside from The Quiet Ones) don't seem all that interesting to me.
I like the school play stories you guys told. I've been in plenty of school plays in my time because of my love for acting. I remember being in one play in high school that's based on the Beverly Hillbillies TV show, where I played Mr. Drysdale. There was one scene where my character runs into a small group of hippies and I awkwardly danced with them. You might admit that it sounds much better than the 1993 film version.
Brad's story about the faux drunk driving scene reminded me of the time where my Theater Arts class staged a school bus accident for the hospital trainees. I was one of the victims with a bloody arm with a piece of bone sticking out of it. Ain't theater fun?
So excited to see you at C2E2. And yeah, about BlueSky, I only really like Robots and the first Ice Age. Actually, they're the ones behind the Peanuts movie coming out next year. So here's to hoping maybe it will be good. I'm skeptic about the Peanuts movie but I am hoping they'll prove me wrong. I was really skeptic about the Peabody and Sherman movie but I guess people liked it (including Brad). Maybe I'll check it out on DVD.
Are you guys gonna check out BEEEEEEEEAAARRRRRSSS?
Omg, my high school has done a lot of the anti-drunk-driving stuff that Brad's school did. Of course by now it's also anti-texting-while-driving.
YAAAAY! Jake is back!
Brad. The short "Almost Home" is indeed fact a short that is made to lead into a feature length movie called "Home" based off of a book called "The True Meaning of Smeckday". The film is about that alien race taking over earth and trying to do earthlings a favor and relocate them to another planet.
Haven't seen the video but judging be the screen cap, Leah hasn't returned...
I totally want to see more videos of Jake and Brad just reflecting on stuff.
I love the reviews where they just don't want to talk about the movie, either because it was great like Lego or because it was less awful and more boring like this one, because I would never know just how interesting their lives have been otherwise.
The Amazon is actually home to one of less than a half dozen species of freshwater dolphin.
Amazon River Dolphin: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_river_dolphin
(with apologies, I was raised on David Attenborough)
And as long as I'm being insufferable, the large rodents you were referring to were probably Capybaras.
Loved the Duran Duran pun.
My guess would be that the rodents where agouti. They are more ratlike than Capybaras.
Jeremy Wade talks about freshwater dolphin all the time on "River Monsters" also.
Actually, that's not the only dolphin living in the Amazon. There is also the Tucuxi (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tucuxi). And then there are also several species of coastal dolphins that will occasionally wander a little bit into the river, like Jake suggested. The rodent I'm not sure of, could be a Capibara (largest rodent in the world, but doesn't really looklike a rat), or it could be some species of agouti.
The '82 Annie (the one with Albert Finney) is worth it for TWO reasons: 1- Tim Curry
2- Geoffrey Holder (he steals as Punjab)!
correction; 4 reasons, Albert Finney, and Carol Burnett. especially with Albert Finney singing a song about blackmailing Miss Hannigan.
I don't want to freak jake out, but I think a bunch of gerbils got loose inside his car ceiling.
Was that play called Addict!?!? I was in that when I was in high school in the 90's and it totally sounds like the same play.
I had to look up "Earth to Echo" after this.
If adults have motion-sickness problems in "found-footage" movies, these kids are going to lose it 10-fold.
It's not technically "found footage" but there is a animated film with the hand held camera style incorporated in the story used to communicate either a documentary or reality show feel. If you haven't seen "Surfs Up" I honestly recommend it. It's talking surfing penguins, but it's actually pretty good!
I knew this movie would be bad when Faggot Josh gave it a good review.
Holy shit Brad my high school did the same anti-drug thing! That was bizarre.
My school did Exactly what Brad's did, It was called Shattered Dreams.
Lame ours just showed us pictures of dead dismembered car wreck people.
I LOVE THE WAY BRAD GOES "NICE!" AT 25:02
Amazon River Dolphins. They're pretty awesome. They've also been called "Encantado(s)" because of their pink hue. Absolutely gorgeous.
Also, I saw Rio 1, and although I'm not the biggest fan of it, the last 10 min were awesome and heartfelt, and what pisses me off about Rio 2 (from what you mentioned) is that they are living in the city. I'm pretty sure Rio 1 ends with them being happy IN THE AMAZON. Like wtf? Why the conflict in this one? GAH
That's a common mistake. In the end of the first film they're not in the Amazon but in a forest preserve just outside Rio itself. It'd be pretty ridiculous to take a city-grown bird into the middle of the amazon.
... just like this movie just did...
Seriously, the Amazon is scary dangerous. People half-joke about Australia being dangerous, but that's just because no-one with half a brain actually goes into the Amazon to check just how dangerous the place is. Rio 2 has several jokes about the poisonous little frog girl that can kill you with just a touch. Well, that frog actually exist. Several species, actually. And at no point they exaggerate just how poisonous she is. If you just touch one of these frogs with the tip of your finger you die within the minute. Pirañas aren't as murderous as movies make them out to be... but they're still pretty fucking dangerous. Snakes are everywhere, and the poisonous ones are the least dangerous ones... the 20 feet long ones are the ones you should be careful about. Basically, the Amazon is the worst parts of a regular jungle coupled with the most dangerous parts of a swamp. Then make it 10 times worse.
Well know I just wanna see an Angry Jake musical!
Brad make it happen!!!
These fucking kids flicks!
They making me FUCKING SICK!
DO DEE DOO DOO!
These shitty films making me so mad!
So horrid, FUCK YOU, BRAD!"
*Brad laughing in the back ground*
...thats all i got.
Thank you for pointing out the bullshit about how his wife calls him selfish for wanting to go home when she's the most selfish, egotistical bitch imaginable. But that's the tip of the iceberg.
This movie is one of the most sexist pieces of shit I've seen in I don't know how long.
Don't believe me? Here's another review that perfectly details it....
Actually Legends of Oz is next. How to train your dragon 2 is in June. Sorry Jake.
the next kids movie is the legend of oz that look so bad and dragon is coming in june
For Sasquatch week I hope you didn't make yourself watch "The Untold". That movie is fucking painful.
I'm trying to imagine Jake saying "God Fucking Damnit" is a squeaky girly voice. It's hilarious.
ugh,too bad its that animal killer jake,i cant stand those screening-reviews,its scary hearing someone who in a video bragged about he killed animals, talk about how he likes children movies.
maybe if i hold a hand up the half screen so i only see handsome brad but ..
in primary school we had to split into groups of 3 and act out a small anti drug scene for the class. i came up with myself walking down a street when two dealers come up to me and trying to sell me weed.
i turn them down. they ask why. i tell them sniffing glue is cheaper.
teacher laughed but somehow we still got in trouble for it fuck the system =p
Will the eventual review of "Heaven is For Real" get pushed back to next week? Apparently it's the feel good no calorie devoid of conflict pointless for anything but Christian affirmation Greg Kinnear vehicle of the year! That still did worse than Transcendence and A Haunted House 2. Whomp whomp.
I had to laugh my ass off when you guys were talking about the drunk driving thing because I was in one of those not too far away from Springfield. The whole idea behind it was that everybody went to the Macon County State Fairgrounds and watched this scene where a guy was driving his prom date home from a party and collided head on with a drunk driver and the guy driving died instantly. I played the dead body. At one point, they put me in a body bag and wheeled me off. I decided to fuck with everyone and pretend like I was jerking off in the body bag.
There is an Amazon river dolphin called the boto that lives in the Amazon river. They do live in the heart of the Amazon.
Please, please, PLEASE tell me Jake gets to go see the new animated Wizard of Oz sequel coming on in May (6th). It looks like Doogal level of hilarious badness.
While it's not a movie nor for kids, I've seen an anime that was pretty much found footage. It was called FLAG.
I love the off topic discussion just as much as the review for this.
The musical talk was pretty funny. Imagining Jake as a grade school musical star was worth it
"Bravo, sweetheart." xD
I want to believe Jake's "little girl" voice changed to his normal baritone voice right when he hit puberty during a performance, like Homer Simpson going from a choir boy to his regular voice
So have you guys seen the How to train your dragon tv show?
mostly the same voice cast and everything, i think you guys would enjoy it to be honest.
But heres my question....was there a Rio 1? i seriously don't remember?
Also im not looking forward to Peanuts because its Blue Sky entertainment, the ass holes behind Epic, Rio, Ice Age, ect.
HTTYD2 is going to be fucking GOAT though. It may beat out Frozen, and i hope it does because i loved HTTYD 1.
I had that same anti drunk-driving thing back during my sophomore year in high school, it was called 15 Minutes, I saw the kids in my school wearing dead make up and had their own obituaries, of course there was a fake car crash at the side of my school, and a cop played as The Grim Reaper. One student went to jail since he played the drunk driver, and we had an assembly that had people who lost their loved ones to drunk driving. I remember being kinda depressed during the assembly and when they did the fake funeral, almost everybody was in black, and I was wearing my black Nirvana T-shirt and black pants. It does kinda hit home to me since my grandpa, while high on booze and cocaine, crashed his car and barely survived, but now has epilepsy because of it. But thank God after 40 years of substance abuse, he has been sober for almost two years now and thinking about moving to The Philippines to be with his girlfriend. I wish him a lot of luck and hope he can find peace and happiness.
Method actor, or meth head actor?
Jake's rant on his theater days were hilarious. Peter Sellers of High School had me laughing my ass off.
Wish I had a time machine to go see Brad's spanish play.
My school had the exact same thing in 2011! It's embarrassingly goofy and left the audience laughing
What movie is the fly comment from? I feel like I should know but I can't remember right now!
1) The movie Surf's Up is an animated mockumentary, so it's sort of like a found footage movie
2) My school did that exact anti-drunk driving assembly that yours did! We called it the SKID assembly and I thought it was about wiping your ass
Seriously driving me insane that I don't know where the fly went in to his mouth comment came from! Somebody needs to tell me before I lose it!
It's from the episode of American Dad where Barry, Steve's fat friend, stops taking his pills and starts talking like Gary Oldman.
"Your voice! It's different!"
"Yes, soothing isn't it? Sweet and terrible like a mad man's lullaby."
