"They're homophobic and use the word 'retarded' a lot."
As a former Boy Scout... yeah, that's a pretty accurate representation of my troop.
I wish I can go back and ripped my uniform in front of my troop, and said "fuck these fascist badges" than flip them off for wasting my time
Though my older brother just returned his badges after the homophobia thing
So, a teenager.
A teenage boy.
Ugh. Except for the part where they say the r word a lot, the Boy Scout troop I was in last year was definitely goddamn homophobic. The troop I was in was 99.99% Mormon so it was understandable. Not in that shit anymore, so that's a good thing, I guess.
Fuck the boy scouts. Worst group of kids I ever dealt with.
I guess I'm one of the few people who managed to get laid on a scouting trip.
So much for the promise Tye Sheridan showed with Mud and Joe...
Sometimes you do Reindeer Games
yea, that's what totally is wrong with this movie. the acting.
My thoughts exactly. I'll still watch his other stuff though.
If you thought that this movie was awful, check out this trailer for another movie coming out in wide release (700+ theaters) this week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aih78JJ7-Ds
Can something written by David A. Prior really be that terrible?
The acting looked so bad. It sounded like they were reading their lines for the first time and they used that in the final take.
When it has to hire people more for dancing talent than acting ability, yes. Oh yes.
Dancin' It's On!: Copyright 2015 East Side Story, LLC
So, David Winters, who played A-rab in West Side Story, my favorite movie musical of all time, is the writer, producer, director, and actor in this film, and he decided to name the production company of the film East Side Story, LLC?!?!??!?!
FUCK YOU MOVIE!!! YOU GO TO HELL!!! YOU GO TO HELL AND YOU DIE!!! AND FUCK YOU DAVID WINTERS FOR DISGRACING THE GREATEST FILM THAT YOU HAVE EVER BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH BY PUNNILY NAMING THE PRODUCTION COMPANY THE WAY YOU DID!!! THERE'S A SPECIAL PLACE IN MOVIE HELL FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU!!!
Okay, I'm done.
Sorry, co-writer, I meant co-writer.
He also directed the film Space Mutiny, which was spotlighted on MST3K. I can already tell this is gonna be a movie that Brad will watch when it comes to theaters.
Rest in peace, the Brians. We all know Brad will send them to that.
I saw Burnt tonight. Think of that film as Bradley Cooper trying to be Gordon Ramsey if the actual chef was on Zoloft. Why are we getting movies for foodies is beyond me? I thought the show Hannibal was supposed to stop the trend!
This sounds like a movie I would love as a 12 year old, then watch it years later and cringe at it.
Give me a break
If this was made by Troma, Brad would be lapping it up and talking about how fun it was. Go back and watch Terror Firmer and Citizen Toxie - it's the same style of humor.
Brad's got this bizzare pretention where he loves trash when it's made by certain people or studios (asylum / troma) but when others do the same shit: eli roth or this movie. It's somehow beneath him
That's because Troma knows they're trash, but they can still put out watchable trash that's not pandering to the dumb teen demographic of the 2010's like this garbage. There's a fine line between fun trash like Troma and So Bad It's Mentally Retarded Trash like this shit film.
How many Zombie movies have you seen?
Between Knock Knock and The Loft is this worst than those movies? If so does that mean those movies get pushed off the list? And is it close to or worse than Unfinished Business?
Also I didn't think you would take Violet to something far more worse than Vacation.
I don't know if you saw one of my previous comments but I did warn you to get her baked enough so that she would be numb enough to not feel any pain while watching this movie.
I take it you might of miss it.
I don't know why, but at that ending I totally thought you were going to go for Charlie Brown and not James Bond, so the surprise made me laugh harder than I probably would have otherwise.
Sorry this movie sucked even though I expected it to be awful. Hopefully you don't leave without taking Violet to another good movie. I know I'm going to see The Exorcist in the theater tomorrow and I'm so looking forward to that, especially after a long day at work
Remind me not to walk home after midnight after watching a horror film.
I have to say Brad, I enjoyed snakes on a plane as well.
Snakes on a Plane is way better than Sharknado
Are you going to see Freaks of Nature??
This movie you reviewed Brad is like when Budweiser made a craft beer, corporate trying to be cool and appeal to the indie crowd, by making one of the most cliche and outdated movies in a while, you just can't make a cult classic with focus groups written by 40 years olds (the hack of Paranormal Activities movies worked on this schlock)
Edgar Wright, Peter Jackson, and Sam Raimi, had something interesting with their movies, because they were doing their own things, not for marketing
First off, I'm not going to say this is GOOD, but worst than "Vacation" bad? I'm going to disagree HIGHLY on that. I loathed Vacation with every fibre of my being, with the only scene in that I kinda liked was the older brother getting revenge. This, while yes it's hardly original, I can actually name a few scenes I liked. I was expecting "goofball comedy", so the stuff like the stripper still doing her routine, and the one dancing to Britney were just so out of left field and bizarre that I found it strangely appealing. People being so into their routines that when they become zombies they keep doing it -- I actually think that makes sense. Same thing with the trampoline; yeah, it's bizarre, but since they're trying to get to the people, why couldn't they have some minor problem solving skills. Also, some of the kills were kind of entertaining to me, like the final fight scene -- sure, it's been done better, but it wasn't bad IMO.
I'm honestly rather watch this twice than rewatch ANYTHING in Vacation.
Cloris Leachman is in this? The star of Oogie-Loves?
Well, I'm bored, so here's my early predictions for Brad's worst of the year.
1. Old Fashioned
2. Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse
4. War Room
5. Jem and the Holograms
6. Knock Knock
7. The Gallows
8. Unfinished Business
9. The Loft
10. Hot Tub Time Machine 2
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension
Do You Believe
The Transporter Refueled
Possible Late-Year Entries:
By the Sea (if Jolie's directing abilities don't improve from Unbroken)
The Road Chip
I think you are right for the most part except:
1. I think Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is in Brad's top 10 worst movies of the year right now.
2. When did Brad see Vice?
3. Brad didn't like Ted 2?
@Hey Brad: "Brad didn't like Ted 2?" <--- I don't think so. He said it was funny in the beginning but then the jokes just kept on bombing. Not sure it was 'Worst of the Year' bad though.
@Hey Brad Vice was on one of the vlogs earlier this year (forgot which one off the top of my head; the one where he talked about The Voices too, maybe?) I think The Green Inferno would be a viable top 10 canidate too
I doubt Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse will make that high on the list. Would definitely put the religious movies, Gallows, The Loft, etc higher than this movie.
I certainly see some of these on the list, but there's got to be a big budget clunker in the mix somewhere so I reckon Jupiter Ascending and or Pan will be in there. Jupiter Ascending is entertaining, but in lots of ways is a classically bad movie. To me stuff like the Gallows is meh, bad but, basically forgettable. Personally, I'm more interested in the best movies of the year and wish a little more time went on discussing them.
I watched this movie but payed for "What We do in the Shadows", that movie is a much better horror comedy (yes it only came out now in my country) "Scouts" don't deserve my fucking money, not in this movie and not on the street when they're trying to sell me shit
Thanks for the heads up Brad i was honestly thinking of taking my GF to see this, this weekend thinking it might be a mildly amusing halloween movie but now i know to avoid it like the plague.
Speaking of hung like Milton Berle, whatever happened to Jared?
He was actually a were-Bigfoot, so Brad shot that filthy animal - it's in The Geek review.
thanks for the review was gonna see it this weekend but gonna stay home and watch halloween 3. also where did Violet get the salior moon shirt looks cool.
are you sure this movie wasn't directed by Uwe Boll? because it's starting to sound like one of his shitty quote unquote "funny films" like House Of The Dead The Funny Version or Blubberella.
on a side note, I'm getting really sick & tired of these zombie films. why don't they do something different like a Hell Invasion From Mars kind of film or a Demon Outbreak. Hell, I'd rather go see a well made movie based on Doom II Hell On Earth than this, at least that would be entertaining & over-the-top in both intense action & gore especially if it was done as a grindhouse kind of film. give me a double feature with Duke Nukem, Wolfenstein, and/or Quake, and I would gladly pay money to see it. plus, from what you both are describing to the lazy porn jokes, it seems like this R-rated film is written by a 7 year old.
the best advise I can give is if this film is really that bad, then just skip watching this cinematic whatever and just play Zombies Ate My Neighbors at home instead.
Was this as bad as Night of the Living Dorks?
A very false advertising and deceptive practice. This is clearly not a midnight video. I am disappoint and want my money back.
I was looking forward to this movie so much more when I mistakenly thought that it was about a Girl Scout troop surviving the zombies more than this crap.
ALSO, what is with all these disappointing R-rated Halloween movies aimed at the "youths". Second this shit, but first (and I was pissed it was as bad as it was) Hell & Back.
You have the chance to make a stop-motion R movie, and literally do anything, and you make a stupid raunchy comedy with the comedi-stars competing to have the best insult/quip. Way to fucking go.
Just how despicable the main characters are really comes across in the trailer. It reminded me of Project X in that we had a trio of thoroughly loathsome characters that, for some reason, we're apparently supposed to find charming or relatable. And isn't that a back-handed insult if I ever heard one.
And whenever the stripper character--or cocktail waitress--appeared in the trailer, I kept thinking the "cool girl" speech from Gone Girl.
"Cool girl is a sexy stripper who likes you. Cool girl kills zombies with a shotgun. Cool girl doesn't care if you're a nerd. Cool girl encourages you to be a man."
Hey Violet! Love the Sailor Moon shirt!
That is all.
What no hold on loosely and don't let go reference? XD
This sounds like robot chicken but not...funny
this seems like a movie that no one really wanted to see, but the promoters were doing everything they could to grab people's attention with trailers.
When I saw the title to this I hoped it would be about Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird fighting Klan Zombies.
I'm currently reading the sequel and your idea sounds wonderful.
If Pride & Prejudice & Zombies does well next year, I expect Hollywood will come steal your idea.
Wow..This sounds ludicrous.
Is it worse than Jem and the holograms?
Ummm .gif is pronounced "jiff", thank you very much.
Why would .gif be jiff if we already have jpeg? It's gif
How does someone have their own website, yet their review video has the production value of a camera set up in their car?
I came here expecting more and see your fans are sheep who just want to watch talking heads and not an actual video reviewer who tries to have production value.
Don't quit your day job.
Sitting in a car, ranting about a film you saw, will never catch on. It's pathetic and uninteresting. Next time do something in your video. You'll get more views probably. Here's an idea: Have some clips of the film. Then add some humorous skits in between. It'll at least seem like there was effort put in.
This was a garbage attempt.
*sniff, sniff* Why does the Snob get all the attention and the girls? Why doesn't anyone care about me? Especially when I have such handy cliches!
I guess they just enjoy getting paid to be couch potato's. sit in cars, talk about movies, buy food, talk about food while sitting in their cars, and rant for over an hour about a movie they don't like. "paycheck please!" even if they did put effort into it, people will still complain about it. maybe they should rename their videos Brad & Friends Midnight Vlogs, Brad Eats Things, Brad Rants For Over An Hour, and/or Brad Complains About Movies N' Stuff. giving an opinion on movies is nothing new, but I'm sure some people enjoy his videos just like there's going to be people who hates his videos. they say it's hard & difficult to edit, but I highly doubt that. hell, I would love to see these internet critics actually challenge some of their random fans to do their jobs for them.
Hmm, sounds exactly like Doug's type of "reviews". Get out of here fanboy.
hey "yo", you can be a fan of both Doug & Brad without being referred to as a fanboy. just like how some people can enjoy playing video games without being called a gamer. to me, it's just empty words with no real meaning attached to it. I can enjoy Brads videos, Phelous' videos, Doug's videos (or any videos for that matter) even if I don't always agree with them. so, why don't you "get out of here", get a life, and come back when you're ready to grow up. then and only then, will I take your comments seriously enough to respond.
Doug? What does anything I say have to do with Doug loves Movies podcast. If this were a podcast it would void my complaints.
If he ever does one day make a podcast, I hope he does more than just set up a microphone and babble for 40 minutes with a friend or two. That'll never last longer then 4 episodes. He'd probably have buddies who agree with everything he says and laugh even when he isn't saying anything funny.
It wouldn't even by interesting like listening to a train wreck. It'd probably be really boring.
BTW no need to point out who is a "fanboy" and who isn't. Helen Keller could figure it out.
Aiye T. Rowle, are you responding to my comment or Yo's? because if it's me you're responding to, then I'm pretty sure I was responding to someone else. also, no need to drag Helen Keller into this conversation. I'm pretty sure Helen Keller doesn't want anyone to drag her into this nor does she care about fanboys and internet videos because she's dead. also, she maybe both blind & deaf, but she's not psychic, ok? even Matt Murdock can make be wrong from time to time.
correction, can be wrong from time to time. (sigh) book end this conversation for me Death: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR5Z4n1TdSI
Call me crazy, but I agree with Mr. T. Rowle here to a degree. Brad's "Midnight Screenings" character needs some kind of gimmick other than just sitting in a car. What if he wore a mask and did his reviews in the dark? That would add an air of mystery to the "midnight" screenings. Or maybe he could wear a fedora and a sport jacket, and be like a hipster nerd who does reviews. Maybe he could just constantly pretend to be scared and scream a lot. But you gotta have some kind of gimmick or people are never gonna watch.
I agree that he should do something different with his videos, but we don't need even more gimmicks to get our attention. at the very least, put in a trailer at the beginning or go dressed up to these videos as a character from that movie like he did with Dumb & Dumber To. at least try something different than just sitting in his car reviewing movies & food. I know it's a bit easier to do videos completely unscripted, but if that's all these videos are, then you need to do something new & different in order to spice things up and keep things fresh. maybe Brad & his team should consider reinventing himself at some point so he can prevent his content from getting stale. one can only keep up this act for so long before it stops being funny and/or entertaining.
These are quick reviews done directly after viewing the film. They are usually done in the parking lot directly after Brad and Co get out the screening.
Clips would be hit with copyright problems.
The whole point of midnight screenings is that they are a fast reaction on the night the film was viewed. They are a separate entity to The Cinema Snob, which as far as I know does feature extensive clips!
"The Hand Of Onan" I know what these videos are. you don't have to describe what Midnight Screening is to me. sure, having copyrighted material would be a problem, but he should at least try something different with these videos in order to keep them interesting. pointing a camera at you and talking about a recent movie's released is nothing new, and if you watch other channels on youtube, it's been done to death. plus, they aren't fast videos. from these videos, they tend to be over 30-40 minutes depending on the video, and sometimes it's over an hour long. do you really want to watch someone give their opinion about a movie they just watched for over an hour? I'm not saying that you can't enjoy them or that he shouldn't keep doing these videos. what I am saying is that one can only do the same things over and over and over and over again before it starts to get repetitive & stale, and then it no longer becomes interesting to watch. they've been doing this for years, and they haven't done anything different with it. one can only do the same shtick for so long before people begin to loose interest.
I meant they were done quick. Not that they were fast moving. Mostly they're around 30 minutes long. Usually it's Brad and someone else shooting the breeze. And if I didn't want to watch it I wouldn't be here. It's not like there is a law forcing you to watch. To be honest I come here to find out what this set of reviewers have to say coz I find them likable. Other than that, I don't really watch film reviews unless they happen to be on TV. When a film comes out I watch the trailer, then see the film and then I might think "I wonder what Cinema Snob has to say". ( times out of ten I've already seen the film and actively like the talking head approach. Maybe the reviews could be a bit shorter. But it's a free site and I don't really get why people need to whine about stuff that they're not forced to watch and costs them nothing. Actually, I think if there is a problem it's that team snob are just growing up and are moving on so the format lacks the consistent input it had. But that's inevitable.
"The Hand Of Onan"
1st - I'm not whining. just because I have an opinion that's different than you or if I criticize what others are doing, that doesn't automatically mean I'm whining, or angry, or throwing a hissy fit.
2nd - you are more than welcome to give your opinion, but that doesn't mean that I'm going to automatically agree with you. just like you are more than welcome to disagree with me. you are also more than welcome to like what you're watching. like I said in a previous discussion, I can like any video out there and even be a fan of someone without always agreeing with what they're saying or how they make their videos.
3rd - it may cost us nothing, but people are still paying for internet connections either way, and Bard and his crew are still getting paid for making content. and just like everyone else, when they get paid to do something creative and entertaining, I expect them to do more than just opinion based videos around what movie they're seeing around midnight or the kind of foods they try. I can accept it if it was consider to be bonus content, but not the majority. they even said that much like Spoony, they get paid to basically do nothing. and just like every employment (especially if you are getting paid to entertain people), if you don't do the work, they shouldn't get paid.
4th - why should I take anything you have to say seriously when you couldn't even get the word Baron spelled right. it's Baron, not Barron.
5th (and lastly) - I'm sick and tired of people using the excuse of "you don't have to watch it" when getting into an argument with people. as if they themselves are the poster boy/girl for free will. of course we have a right to watch any video we want, just like it's my choice to disagree with people and criticize what they do. if they agree with me, fine. if they don't, that's fine too. I'm more than welcome to watch Brad's videos and comment on them. but that doesn't mean that I have to accept everything he does. just because I disagree with the kind of videos he's posting now a days, that doesn't mean I hate him or that I'm whining or angry. I have the right to voice my opinion like everyone else. and I'm pretty sure Brad has the right to shut down his website, his content, and remove all of his videos whenever he wants.
I also must ask, if people really truly cared about content being posted online for free, then wouldn't Brad and his team be more than willing to make these videos without getting paid?
I see. How interesting.. Do go on.
no, I'm done. I've said all that I need to say, and I don't think you or I need to drag this conversation any further than it needs to be. also, you've got the name wrong, again. it's Baron, not Barron. anyone who has played Doom would know this. Baron is a title, Barron is the name of several locations, and the name of a U.S. Supreme Court case regarding states' rights. I would not be this hard on you if you didn't make this kind of simple & obvious mistake. now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to put all of this nonsense aside and try to relax for the rest of the evening.
ITT I can't tell who is making a joke or not lol. At first I thought people saying there needs to be gimmicks was a joke, then some people seem serious. I started out laughing then got concerned then laughed again. It's a confusing whirlwind of tone.
Considering how much scripted content I have on here (from weekly Snob episodes to DVD-R Hell to movies to animated series), I think I'm allowed to have one or two shows that are just unscripted shootin the shit =)
This movie bombed at the box office today, alongside Burnt and Our Brand is Crisis. The film made $1.8 million all throughout Halloween weekend. Looks like making memes is not going to work in this movie's favor after all.
I dig Violet's Sailor Moon shirt
Great review. Have you guys seen "Cooties"?
It sounds like they made a movie about the idiot 11-year-olds who join a troop and quit a year later. Sounds miserable.
Brad, there is a movie out in some theaters called 'Dancin' It's On' .. I had no idea it existed till yesterday and we went and saw it because it looked terrible. It was really bad and made me and my boyfriend laugh out loud. You should see if it's playing where you are.
Aw, Violet has the same shirt as me! Also, this movie sounds like completely worthless shit!
I had some hope for this movie. But, this movie sure did put a fire under Violet. Or maybe Brad is rubbing off on her. Anyway, she sure is replacing Jake in the "Fuck this Shit" reviewer spot.
"If someone walks up to you on the street and gives you a free copy of this movie free, punch them!" And I get the feeling that's she's sugarcoating her real feelings about the movie:-) From the trailer I saw I expected this to be a wretched film and I was apparently not wrong in that.
I've realized that the midnight screenings have actually taken the place that Roger Ebert used to have when it came to giving me reliable guidance about whether I should take the time and spend the money to see a movie in the theater. Even if the people here don't like a particular movie (Everest for example) they always manage to give enough information about it for me to figure out if I will. Thanks!
Wow. I never thought this would be good, but it was that bad? Damn. Will not check this one out.
It just took a re-watch of this for me to notice the line "a zombie in a Britney Spears t-shirt" ..... so now all I can visualize is Brian, in his Britney shirt, running from zombies while styling his magnificent beard. Excuse me while I go watch a better movie (than fucking Scout's Guide to the Apocalypse) in my head...
Like two people previous, who saw this video closer to when it came out, really digging the Sailor Moon shirt on Violet.
