"Sorry this episode may have just been added to Blip and isn't quite ready to watch yet"
Goddammit Blip get your slow ass in gear. Thanks to microwavable pizzas and the Gameboy we folk of the modern world have no patience threshold anymore.
"Brad's Mom favourite serial killers." I'd like that. :)
I agree, Dave and his hair are both very handsome. Too bad I only have sex with black guys though.
But Carol, I'm not Black ...C-Carol?
Ha-ha! This is what I love about your wife. Carol's quite the sexy kidder with a fine ass tattoo.
Um, that's "fine ass" not "fine on her ass". I wouldn't know anything about that.
Something tells me these are all the same person
Didn't see "Silence of the Lambs", until this January, actually. I love the movie. And since it's Brad's mom saying it, I guess I got to watch the TV series, now.
P.S.: When's the next Random Button? I saw that piece of shit "Frankenhood" movie in preparation for it.
You watched "Frankenhood"? Willingly? With no financial benefit?
I pity you.
I'm telling you this: When it comes to movies, I'll watch nearly anything. I've seen at least FIVE Tyler Perry movies, and sat through every single one of them without stopping, in my own house. I've watched THREE Brian Levant films and survived THREE Dennis Dugan movies. I thoroughly enjoy "Kangaroo Jack", "Tommy Boy", and "Big Fat Liar". I've seen "Home Alone 3" and "George of the Jungle 2" repeatedly as a kid.
I couldn't get through this movie in one go. It's that unfunny. It's that unlikeable. This movie confused me to no end; I was never sure whether the film choices in the movie was because of its presumably low budget or because the director thought it would be funny.
"Frankenhood" was hard to watch for me.
I've been wondering the same thing. I'm still trying to find the movie.
T2, Silence of the Lambs and Silence of the Lambs in the same day?! What an awesome day! Sure as hell beats Grudge Match & 47 Ronin, huh Brad???
Oops. I'd see Silence twice, but I meant City Slickers.
Would have been an awesome day if not for T2 and City Slickers.
You are the second person I've met to hate "Terminator 2." The other's my sister. And I still don't understand why.
The moment I saw Brad's mother, I immediately said to myself (enthusiastically!): Holy Hell, it's Betsy Palmer!
And she wastes no time talking about favorite serial killers! I have not even watched the video yet, and already Brad's mother has won me over. She's awesome! I even told myself (thanks to a recent video here) not to post anything until the video is completely over, but I just had to compliment her and the serial killer opening right away. It was just that amazing.
Brad, regarding Hannibal getting the pen: in the book, Hannibal unlocks his cuffs with an improvised handcuff key made from a bit of tubing from a pen and a paperclip, which were accidentally given to him by visitors over the years when Barney wasn't there. He kept both pieces hidden in his mouth or up his ass for years, getting it by metal detectors because he has metal fillings in some of his teeth.
It's Fisher Stevens, but yes, I was also really happy to see him in the movie. To myself I said, "Fisher Stevens!"
This is the first Wes Anderson movie that I've found appealing and I really enjoyed the movie. It was a lot of fun, which I haven't had at the theater for a while. I was glad Harvey Keitel in the movie too. I got a bit mad when Jeff Goldblum's character got killed. It's the wrong thing to do, it's how Hollywood can ruin movie by listening to such an opinion, but still.
I've seen very few videos that involve your mother, but oh my god is she an interesting woman. You guys have great chemistry together and I have absolutely loved every minute of that review.
If she might ever read this, well Brad's mom, you speak very intelligently and I really like your opinions and the way you present them to us. I am definitely looking forward to seeing some more videos in the future, perhaps even about these older movies my father used to watch. Since he is long gone from my life, it is amazing to hear opinions of somebody from another generation.
Thank you Brad for giving me this video. Thank you very much.
The 'd' in "Mads Mikkelsen" is silent, so it's pronounced like "Mass".
Also, I felt Anthony has a tendency to chew the scenery from time to time, which I feel Mads is better at refraining from.
By the way, your mother seems like a really nice person. Her humour and mannerisms are much like my own maternal grandmother's.
Mads has said he doesn't mind how people pronounce his name though, because he thinks "Mads" sound cooler than "Mass". :D
It's been about six or seven years since I've actually read The Silence of the Lambs, but if I remember correctly, it wasn't a pen but a paperclip, and he swallowed it.
Brad's mum is so awesome that I tried to start a "The People Who Are As Awesome As Brad's Mum" blog but quickly gave up when I realised the content of the entire site would just be a picture of Brad's mum.
Anyway, I really loved the Silence of the Lambs review, that's probably one of the first genuinely scary movies I ever saw. Needless to say it left quite an impression on me and to this day I still find it disturbing and moody yet incredibly watchable.
I also love 8mm though I actually only got around to seeing it last year. I agree that the ending is intense. The device of having the record stop, just the sound of it skipping as he searches the rooms and then it suddenly starting up again was genius.
And I caught the first season of Hannibal last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, it was gruesome, intensely intelligent, amazingly acted and just fascinating to watch and I really need to get caught up with the new season.
As far as Dexter is concerned, I'd recommend the same to Brad's mum as I did to Mister X the other day, make sure to check out season 4 with John Lithgow, it's amazing.
Oh and Brad, I owe you a big thank you for turning me on to True Detective with your Dusk 'til Dawn podcast. That show was just insanely good, near perfect in fact.
I used to generally ignore TV shows but of late they seem to be taking all the risks and proceeding with all the intelligence that modern Hollywood goes out of its way to avoid.
The book does indeed explain how he got the pen! The trouble is that he doesn't swipe a whole pen film implies. It's worse. The book describes that he's been carefully gathering the parts for this key for YEARS, taking it piece by piece from several innocuous sources. It's presented as another example of just how meticulous and terrifyingly patient Lecter is.
Dave, you should check out Moonrise Kingdom, Anderson's last flick. That one's my favorite, probably cuz of my background in Scouting, but I think you would enjoy it immensely.
That's probably the one they were refering to as the one that seemed most like typical Wes Anderson movie.. I'm seen people say that at least.
I don't know why though since it's absolutely charming. My favorite Wes Anderson movie probably besides Royal Tenenbaums.
excuse my typos btw.. Late and beer was involved..
More of Brad and his Mom!!! They make a good team! :)
Brad raved about Hannibal as long as he has and now my life is complete.
No mention of Hannibal Rising? Gotta make sure to watch that one.
But Hannibal Rising is abysmal
If you haven't seen The Hunt, Mads Mikkelsen is fantastic in that. I highly recommend it.
Also, tell your mom to avoid Hannibal Rising.
Noooooo! Hannibal RIsing must be witnessed by all! It's one of the most God awful origins stories, but it must be watched!
Hey Brad, the AMC Classic Series is usually the same as the Cinemark Classic Series and they announced it as being "Best Picture Epics" series for April-May: Ten Commandments, Gladiator, Ben Hur, Titanic, and Spartacus.
I too am a huge fan of Hannibal a Fannibal if you will glad to hear Brad and his mother like the show too good taste. The show is fantastic too bad its ratings blow, if it gets canceled someone better pick it up or we will burn Utica to the ground, They plan to cover all the source material so it better not get canceled I have to see the Red Dragon story with this cast
On the subject of Hopkins or Mikkelsen they're both fantastic though Mikkelsen is a bit more subdued I wish he would insult people more like Hannibal does in Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs I like that passive aggressive attitude he has though again they're both awesome love the show
I absolutely HATE Silence of the Lambs. Jodie Foster's accent was awful, and Hopkins chewed the scenery.
The only one I liked was the FAR superior Manhunter.
Brad, after seeing the Fast Times review with your mom, I was so excited to see that she was popping up in another midnight screening. And for Silence of the Lambs! You two converse really well together (which I guess makes sense given that she is your mom!) She's such an interesting lady to listen to, and it's great to hear stories about the movies you two watched while you were growing up. Having a different generational voice in there is cool, too. Hope she's in more reviews in the future.
As an aside, Brad, if you do any of your catching up Vlog reviews any time soon, you should check out the Oldboy remake. It was pretty poorly received, but I liked it a whole lot, as did everyone I showed it to. I definitely get some of the criticisms of it, but I feel as though some of them stem from remake snobbery. The original is my favorite movie, and I'd be really curious to hear your thoughts on the remake (and, come to think of it, the original as well.) Brolin's a powerhouse in it and Copley camps it up hard.
This is official gotten pathetic and sad. Brad Jones is really desperate for laughs and is pathetic and sad. This whole site is pathetic and sad.
Oh my gosh. Baby's first troll. So adorable!
But please explain to us how you actually feel!
It's okay, Josh, you can use your real name.
Nahhhh, it's all good.
Hey, it's a familiar face.
Gotta love how the one time Dave and Sarah say "watch the other review, it's probably there" is one of the few times Brad posted these on Wednesday and not Thursday with all of them together. I hope their prediction on the outtakes is more true, I can only imagine how hard they were laughing considering how the fans seem to have crowned Admiral Crackers as the standout of the video.
You should keep taking your mom to the Classics screenings, it lends a historicity to it that really works quite well. I mean she has the charisma for it. Only problem I could see with making those plans is if Brad can't go to a classics screening then we'll be out two and then it'll feel odd.
"Would you fuck me? I'd fuck me. I'd fuck me so hard."
Also, Manhunter is one of my favorite movies of all time.
Moonrise Kingdom was the last Wes Anderson movie. I thought it was really good it was one of my favorite movies of that year. I actually saw The Grand Budapest Hotel today, I loved it. It wasn't what I thought it was going to be about, but it was really good. I am hoping to see it again soon. The movie looked beautiful, had great characters, and the subtle humor was all wonderfully done. This is the third Wes Anderson movie i've seen and I really need to start looking into his older ones. Also I only had the trailer for Dom Hemingway and some movie where a guy is driving while people keep calling him. It looked weird. Anyways I am glad you guys reviewed the Wes Anderson film this year, I was really disappointed when you didn't review Moonrise Kingdom.
Ha, I saw all 3 of those movies the week they came out too, just like your mom.
Not the same day though.
Brad has, officially, the coolest mom ever.
I wish my wife was as cool.
OK,now I really want to go on a Hannibal marathon starting with Manhunter.
Oh and I wish my mom was as cool as Brad's. Any chance we'll get to see Brad's dad in one of this vids?
Don't forget Hannibal Rising!
Maybe should give Hannibal another chance? I did watch most of the first season, but I found it to be a little dull and some of the gore was a bit over-the-top for me; I found myself laughing. Mads Mikkelson, however, is a fantastic Hannibal Lecter. He's evil but he's so damned charming. I genuinely do want to be his BFF.
I like your mom Brad, she seems like a nice lady. You and her watching Silence of the Lambs together reminds of me and my mom. We don't watch movies together often, but we do like some of the same movies. A movie like Silence of the Lambs, while not my dad's cup of tea, is something that my mom would watch.
It must be of something to see Buffalo Bill and his mangina on the big screen.
I'd recommend giving Hannibal another shot. It's certainly one of those things where I'm very much aware that I need to be in a certain mood to watch it. I enjoyed it as a "quiet evening alone with a glass of wine" kind of show. You need to give it all your attention and be willing to suspend your disbelief a little and just let it take you where it wants because there's definitely a slight feeling of surrealism to it, especially with the over-the-top gore-as-art set pieces (although looking at guys like Jeffrey Dahmer and Ed Gein it's not all that over-the-top). Really it's a show that inhabits its own universe and constructs that universe with great care and I'd say it's definitely worth putting in a little extra effort with it.
Hopkins looks like Pinhead on that photo.
We want more of Brad's mom!
damn, brad, your mom sounds sort of like jodie foster as clarsie :D
Your mom is awesome, Brad. Can you offer her out on loan to people who need a more awesome motherly figure in their lives? I know someone who could appreciate that.
I'm so happy to hear your Hannibal love. It really is one of the best show on TV in a long, long while. And very much in the tonal vein of True Detective, yes.
The food consultant has a blog with recipes and tidbits on the meals because why not want to recreate your favorite cannibalistic dinner? It's pretty cool. http://janicepoonart.blogspot.com/
geez, no offense Brad but your mom looks like Joe estevez like an umpire I call them as I see them> peace nigga!
With me I LOVE the show Hannibal (it almost becomes a ritual to watch it on Friday nights) and the Anthony Hopkins. I should give the movies a watch again.
I'm Brad's age and my mother took me to see Silence of the Lambs in the theater. That, Dead Ringers and Raising Cain are the R movies I remember seeing on initial release at a young age, and I enjoyed all of them. Even so, I don't know what the fuck is up with someone who would take a five year old to see 8mm. I know it must sound like the Carlin bit about your preferred speed on the highway, but seriously: 8mm? at the age of five?? WTF.
As a trap, I would totally watch sleep away camp with your mom.
I don't know if I'd say Hannibal cares about a lot of people in the show tbh. He definitely likes Will (in his own awful, awful way) and he liked Abigail (though not more than his own survival of course). But as for Bella? Well, he had every intention of letting her die. He flipped a coin to see if he should resuscitate her. And even then, he only did it to see what she'd do if she lived.
The Grand Budapest Hotel is probably one of the greatest movie's I've seen in a long time. It was a good movie, a genuine good movie.
Like it's hard to explain... it wasn't good in the way that "The Fighting Fists Of Shanghai Joe" was good... it wasn't good in the way that "The Avengers" was good... it was good in the way that "The Artist" was good.
The Grand Budapest Hotel was terrific. The story was amazing, the director must have been a divine being, the camerawork was perfect. The random poetic moments were hilarious (obviously intentionally done so). This movie was just genuinely good! It was genuinely entertaining!
Watching The Grand Budapest Hotel was like reading a Earnest Hemmingway novel. The dialogue sounded a lot like Hemmingway, lots of "fuck", lots of "goddamn", and lots of "faggot". Uncensored 1940's dialogue, good show.
The Grand Budapest Hotel is so far the best movie of 2014 in my opinion.
