All those cartoon network posters.
I know right? I love them! :D
I have to wonder if the Adventure Time thing started from that brief guest appearance on Doug's vlog series.
The poster's mine, this was filmed in my apartment :)
Holy crap Night Vale poster!
YAY night vale I love that show
The Regular Show poster makes the idea of "Arnold Schwarzenegger as Pops" even funnier. I don't know about anyone else but I'd pay good money just to hear Arnold jovially exclaim "Jolly good show!", in any context really.
given my synchronicity with brad, sounds like staying home to riff MANIMAL instead of tagging along was the right move...and of course as a detroiter i snickered at violet's 'that still can happen' line
I too am a fellow detroiter.
Yay... finally some internetperson agrees with e. I prefer the first too. Just so dark and scary. Plus I still think a man VS a killermachine is just more suspenseful than machine vs machine.
I agree. I think the first one is by far the best. It's just such a cool sci-horror-noir that plays out like a really good Twilight Zone/Outer Limits episode. And, I think it stands on it's own really well without any sequels.
2 and 3 weren't bad, but they were really just explodey action films. Which is okay, I guess.
Never saw Salvation or the Sarah Conner Chronicles.
Hindsight being 20/20 and all I kinda wish McG and the studio had had some cojones and left Salvation's original ending intact. It was crap, but I don't see the movie doing much worse than it did and at least it would have engendered a more passionate bunch of talk about it rather than the collective "meh" it's remembered with.
The difference is that 2 was an exceptional explodey action film while 3 was a mediocre one.
Don't get me wrong. T2 is one fucking amazing film.
I just like the darker tone of part 1 more and Edward Furlong was annoying at times.
Besides that T2 is till this day one of the most amazing summerblockbusters ever
Hearing Brad's voice in this audio quality reminds me of the old reviews, I keep expecting him to say "Bural Ground, Night of Terror..." XD
Is it just me or does violet seem DTF while brad just want to nerd out to the movie?
Part of Brad's charm, movie n vlog first, then fucking. :D
Okay, since I'm not up on the slang the kids use these days (I liek a sheltered existence) I gotta ask:
DTF = "Down To F***"?
DTF=Derek toasts falafels
Pretty sure it means doing the funky chicken.
Wait, that's Brad's girlfriend? Like Sarah, I guess he really does get around, lol
They'll be broken up in about 3 videos.
Wouldn't surprise me lol
I hope not, Violet's awesome! I follow her and a few of her friends (one of them runs the CS fan blogs on Tumblr) and she seems cool and this video is further proof! :)
I kinda hope so I couldn't stand her little smirk. She just seems like someone who would rather just tag along instead of actually showing some interest into what Brad's actually interested in. I'll be proud if I'm proven wrong. But that's just me.
By the way, I suggest a drinking game for this vid, take a swig every time Violet giggles. You'll be drunk in five minutes. Oh and how old and stupid do you have to be to have never seen Terminator 2?! My girl loves T2 and she hates movies and she's my age! Damn, seriously Brad! If she's just agreeing with you because she just wants to be in your vids, yeah she's not worth it. You could do better man.
Shut up Anakin. I hardly think YOU'RE qualified to talk about people's love lives!
Wow, he goes through girlfriends like tissues. Wish I could move on that easily.
Patience Obi Wan. The padawan is still young and must learn his manners. You must train him.
No Qui-Gon. Sexist comments are the path to the dark side. Sexism leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
Chicken leads to Egg. Egg leads to Omelet. Omelet leads to Fecal Urgency.
"Harry.....HARRY!!!! I know you're the one who killed me!"
I'm glad you guys know all about Brad's personal life and what's best for him. I'm sure Brad is relieved that he doesn't have to make his own decisions now that you guys have it under control! You know, it's not like he's an adult capable of living his own life or anything.
They're adults. It's no big deal.
You guys are adorable =)
No you are adorable good sir. ;)
Personally I cringed during all the cheesy moments in this movie, but still enjoyed it overall. Fun romp with some baggage. :P
You know who would've made a better Kyle Reese?
Sam Chaflin, you know from Hunger Games, Pirates 4 and Snow White and the Huntsman?
You might remember him from Catching Fire as that flamboyant, pretty boy, Finnick Odair. He would've been perfect, if not, better than Jai Courtney. Still a shy away from Michael Biehn though.
you know I leave you fuckers alone for a few weeks (ok, months) because i get busy with real life. I come back and see you can't hold it together with out me. I read a lot of shit over the last 20 minutes and I have to let you guys no I no longer feel comfortable hel,ping Brab pay his bills by watching this stuff with out ad blocker, or by buying his films. Why? Same reason Chick fil a and Hobby Lobby never get my money- I think some of the shit they are doing is evil. Brad, hit me up when you stop being evil and Ill let you have the three or so cents per view I give you again.
Yeah, I did not like the movie either. I was a bit intrigued with it at first, but as it went on, I just got bored by it's underwhelming actors and characters. After leaving the theatre, I started to really piss me off. Jai Courtney was dead weight all the way through this. When compared to Michael Biehn, he's terrible.
To me, this eventually felt like a cheap TV series reboot of the franchise instead of a $155 million movie. Mainly due to the blah cinematography when they weren't replicating imagery from the first two movies. The action sequences really pad out the runtime because it's storyline is pretty thin and pointless. Really, it's the plot of Terminator 2 with a few time travel reboot tricks thrown in and none of the substance. I just couldn't care as it all went along. Not to mention, it's well publicized that the producers intend for this to start up a new trilogy, and so, not for a second could I believe that this film would have a definitive ending. And SPOILERS - it doesn't. Wait for the mid-credits scene to confirm that.
And yeah, that "Bad Boys" bit I forgot about - just awful goofy stupid shit. What the fuck was that?
Also, welcome to the site, Violet! Glad to have you here.
I'll probably watch the movie sometime this week but I basically already wrote it off when Jai Courtney was cast as Kyle Reese. Kyle Reese is one of my favorite movie characters and I just don't understand at all how or why they came to the conclusion that Jai Courtney was the guy to play him, and all the things you just said Brad confirmed that. Even for all the shit Terminator Salvation gets, I still think Anton Yelchin actually did a great job as that character.
For all of Terminator Salvation's problems, Anton Yelchin wasn't one of them. He did a pretty good Michael Beihn impression...
So this is the second belated sequel to a beloved franchise with terrible sequels that is merely "better than the last one," at least from other reviews I've seen. I know Joe liked it.
I even liked Jurassic World, but I'll be giving this a pass. Wasn't impressed by the ads, especially by the spoilers in it, and didn't have hope for it.
It's a given at this point that Hollywood mostly relies on existing franchises, but seriously: how many movie events this year weren't sequels? Age Of Ultron, Fury Road, Jurassic World, Genisys, Pitch Perfect 2, Furious 7...
I don't know if it's true, but it feels like there's a higher proportion of prominent sequels this year than in recent memory (even not counting the Marvel movies). Maybe it's just because I've seen more of them than I usually do?
On the other hand, we got Mad Max out of the deal, so I consider we've broken even on the deal.
I've some interest in the film but it makes me wonder if I have to break out my inner Spoony: "Okay, it wasn't bad… it didn't suck… it wasn't 'Highlander II.'"
So, the Penetrator won. This movie feels like they took an unused Penetrator 3 script and adapted to make a new Terminator. Now John Connor is a Terminator.
Wow.. they're already pushing pre-orders for Genisys on PS4. It must be REALLY bad.
Harping on whatever arguments happened in the past (for whatever reason) is one thing, but you'd hope at this point Brad would have learned a lesson about mixing up whoever anyone in the team is happening to fuck at that particular time with the website, regardless of their insight.
This is one of those videos I would have enjoyed lots more if it was just him.
Oh god completely agree. Not to sound like I own Brad or anything but, I would at least wait a bit before I add her into the vids. I mean just see if she's actually going to stick around. At least with Phelous and Lupa you can tell they are just professional about it in their vids. Aside from the fact that I actually like Lupa.
We've been going out for almost a couple of months, I didn't "just add her to the vids."
I just think it's setting yourself up for disaster man, but then again I've always been very Kosher about keeping my professional, personal AND sentimental lives on threads as separate as possible. Especially ynow, after all the stuff with Jake.
But it's your site and your videos and how you choose to manage them, and *obviously* I'm not saying what Jake did was right. I just can't help but to think a lot of drama could be saved otherwise.
Tell me more, person I've never met and the only thing they know about my relationship is that we both saw "Terminator: Genisys."
Also, Jake who? ;)
Gee I don't know Brad, how many Jakes have recently given a very clear example of how getting those three facets of your life can be a recipe for awfulness?
You are right though, you don't know me, but most importantly I only know about what you let out through the Internet and I'm in no position to give you any advice in life whatsoever, not to mention you've probably had this conversation before with people better suited to it. I meant the "it's your thing" bit honestly, and I'm sure as hell mine are not the right choices in life. Wish you the best at any rate, and sorry. I'm just pretty sad about what happened recently.
Holy crap, dudes. This armchair life coach thing is cool and all, but take it down a notch. Do we realize that Brad is friends with everyone in these Midnight Screenings? One incident does not establish a pattern. For that matter, the aforementioned incident had absolutely nothing to do with him mixing friendship and work and the like. It happened completely separate from the webseries.
Honestly, the majority of comments I've seen about Violet are appalling. I haven't watched the video yet, but currently, the only way I'm going to regard people's attitudes as anything close to justified is if she turns out to be
a) A giant praying mantis
b) A giant spider
c) Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender
Otherwise, how about we make the bizarre assumption that maybe Brad knows his life a bit better than we do and stop trying to play psychiatrists? :P
@ottomic It's fine, but....please tell me that you knew my Jake comment with the winky face next to it was a joke...
Jesus christ ottomic it's fucking web reviews LOL smoke a bowl and chill
So I decide to come over and read these comments because they were mentioned in the "Faith of our Fathers" video and now I find out there was a "Jake Incident". Why am I always the last to know about these things?
Yeah Brad caught Jake trying on his (Brad's) underwear and they had a big argument about it. Now they're not talking and Jake's suing Brad for custody of the kids (and Lloyd).
Also I'm pretty sure Violet is just Jake in a rad disguise but I don't have any proof (yet). Be careful, Brad. Trust no one.
I find your obsession with internet reviewers' relationships disturbing.
Well, it's clearly our business if Violet is actually Jake in disguise
Brad owes us fans everything and I've never heard him thank us to the extent he should. So as a result I find it perfectly reasonable that we treat his personal life as a soap opera, I personally use it as my way of getting back at him for his ingratitude.
Btw Brad what kind of underwear do you wear? Could you maybe do an underwear-themed Brad Tries? Thanks.
brad doesn't wear underwear. see, that's how you know he shares with us waaaaay too much information about himself.
I won't believe that until I see pictures. Preferably 8x10 glossies.
The problem is too many people just want variation on the same old shit. Most critics and most adults know these franchises are crap, but they put rumps on seats. The first two Terminators were good, but after that they're shit, The same with Alien. The first Alien, Awesome, Aliens. Great. The other sequels. Utter shit. This is because they are fan fiction and are basically 50 Shades of Grey for teenage boys and nerds.
this girl looks way better then the girl that cheated on you way to go!
True but would you rather be single or have a crazy fangirl who will probably kill herself if you leave her. I vote the former. She's just plain creepy.
That was goddamn needless. You don't know her, we've barely seen anything of her, and you've already decided she's "a crazy fangirl who will probably kill herself if you leave her" and is "just agreeing with you because she just wants to be in your vids." Okay, I can understand her not being your cup of tea as a reviewer, but you seem set to see her as nothing more than a pathetic clinger-on. I mean, for christ's sake, these comments sections have always been a sewer when it comes to the ladies of the site, but this is ridiculous.
I personally don't care what other people do with their genitals or what relationship the people in the video as long as they're competent about it, but Violet's contribution to the review was on par with Brian's on the "You're next" one.
Hey, pal. I like this Violet chick. Don't insult her.
COME AT ME BRO!!!
Ur doing it wrong faggot
Um............. Violet seems a tad bit, um creepy. Like she'll start giggling incessantly and manically the second Brad wakes up and goes for a drink asking if he'll be back. Yeah, I kinda get a very scary twisted fangirl vibe from her. Plus add to the fact that she really seems well fake. :-/
Says the person who uses the name Anakin Skywalker
Jeez dude, leave the girl alone. You've created an entire storyline in your mind based off one little video!?! And you call her "creepy".
I got that impression as well. Though I think I'd chalk it up to just plain nervousness. You could tell she relaxed a bit as the video went on so I imagine future ones will be better.
You mean creepy like the person who's left 5 comments on here obsessing over my relationship life, and pretending like they know the girl? If it eases your, um...pain?...Violet's actually the most normal and chill girl I've gone out with in a very long time, and she's a 3rd year film student who has seen a lot of movies, just not T2. So? I haven't seen Return of the King, sue me.
Even though I also haven't seen Return of the King, I shall sue you for haven't seen it.
I'll see you in court, Cinema Snob, if that's even your real name.
How dare you move on Brad after breaking up with Jillian?! How dare you?! Where do you get off on wanting to resume having a relationship with someone else, and it's not a clone of Jillian? This is bad fan service! You have to do what the fanboys want or they will nerd rage on you! And why should they comment on the movie on a movie site and a movie comment post? This is all about getting life advice from fanboys (half of whom have probably yet to get laid)!
Brad, I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to be dick. I apologize immensely. As long as you're happy that's all that counts. again I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to intrude on your personal life. I really hope you can accept my apology. Because it is genuine. I've been a fan of yours for a very long time and I really don't want to piss you off or upset you. Your personal life is your personal life. I have nothing to do with it. So again I apologize.
I sense much anger in young Skywalker... also Brad you're a cool guy and Violet seems lovely!
Dude, back off. You've commented several times on this video on how you don't like her and it's honestly getting mad creepy.
If you don't like her, fine, whatever. You don't have to watch any videos with her. You don't have to leave several weird and nasty comments about it. It's honestly kind of pathetic.
Like, Brad's personal life isn't something for you to pass judgement on. Who he dates is ultimately not any of our business, and if Violet is showing up here it's because they BOTH feel comfortable enough in their relationship to do this video. Either respect that, or fuck off.
I think Brad's new girlfriend is cute and made a fine co-host for him in this review (and hopefully in other videos).
I also think it's none of our damn business what goes on in their relationship and it's Brad's call who appears with him in his videos.
I didn't like her at first, but now I hope she's in more videos just to spite you.
Seriously? What the hell is your problem, man? You don't even know this girl yet you've already said some disgusting things about her. She was fine here. Maybe a bit giggly and awkward, but not everyone is going to be natural in front of camera. Even Brad was awkward in his first videos.
This seems like an oddly appropriate review for this particular movie.
Something to remember about the T100 in T2, it looks so good because it was part practical effects part CGI.
oh great, instead of a real woman like jillian brad got a younger groupie
and by that i mean that jillian stood up to him and put him in his place whenever he tried to correct everything she said. while this girl just seem to giggle.but i guess everyone gets the girl/guy they want
This is totally why I had to get rid of Jillian. Except she's still on the site =)
Brad was so mad at Jillian when he kicked her off the site that he only allows her to be in 80s Dan and the reviewers now. She is banned from being in the midnight screenings, except for Jurassic world for some reason ;)
Frankly, I'm not sure that's even Jillian. I think Brad replaced her with a duplicate. Don't look in the guy's closet.
Or maybe I'm conflating him with one of his roles again.
Little do people know that Brad actually sent Jillian to Antarctica and uses a combination of cg and animatronics for the Reviewers. The animatronics don't work well in a car, hence the no Jillian in Midnight Screenings.
I like how straightforward yet surprisingly chill you are when you reply to other people's comments. I hope they don't get on your nerves though. Like dude, a happy Brad is the best Brad in my opinion. Some people would say I'm wrong when I say that though, a lot of people like you best when you're angry; but I think that I get a weird Christmas like joy in my heart whenever I see you get a genuine smile of joy on your face from something.
I think Violet looks a lot like Jillian. When I saw the still picture, I thought it *was* Jillian at first.
How dare you have a giggly girlfriend. There are people on these threads who have to live in Mom's basement and are a bit funny about girls. It's bad enough that you still haven't installed the dance monkey dance app that I've been for years and contradict yourself about MOS, but you keep flaunting THESE, THESE FEMALES and it is just not right. Damn it this is a manly site where manly men can discuss porn parodies and say slightly creepy things about Sarah.
I know right?! I mean, I'm the viewer. That means that Brad is supposed to validate MY opinions and not have any of his own...
Seriously though, people, get a life. You watch Brad's videos for entertainment and to be informed given his opinion. That's it. His personal life has no bearing on yours what-so-ever. Just let him do his own thing and support his artistic venture. It's kinda creepy seeing this kind of attention simply because it's behind a computer monitor.
And that's why we complain when he brings along somebody who clearly doesn't care much for the movie, doesn't have any strong opinions about it, mostly just nods along with Brad, and who probably would not be in the video if she wasn't sentimentally involved with him.
But yeah. Dem dayum wimyn or whatever it is how this sounds to you.
Offering some pointers for future videos: good.
Saying she's a psycho fangirl who is going to slit her wrists when I leave the room: bad.
It would've been nice to see you have this conversation with someone that's a bit more knowledgeable about the Terminator universe, but you're out of town so whatevs.
Wow, so the movie is exactly like the second trailer. Good to know I would definitely not care for this movie.
Violet is absolutely adorable! It's great to see her in a video! You both are so great together! Ignore all the other comments that say otherwise!
This is by far the cutest review I've ever seen.
Rogert Ebert's reviews were way cuter. He had the sexiest little giggle. Mmm.
Yay, 09' Brad video quality is back!
Makes sense that Brad likes the first terminator more.The first one is the quintessential 80s movie,while the second one is the quintessential 90s movie.We should really get Lewis and brad to talk about terminators together.
Nice of the trailer to spoil the entire movie, it means that we can watch the abridged version on Youtube for free.
I am not paying to see a POS dumbed down PG-13 terminator movie.
I've said this before, but Brad and I have VERY similar taste in women. That said, I am already in love with Violet.
About Terminator...the only reason I was considering seeing it was Emilia Clarke (not the greatest actress, but wow she is pretty), and J.K. Simmons, who I will watch in anything. I'm one of the rare people who thought Terminator 3 wasn't too bad of a film, but Salvation completely ruined everything for me. I didn't much like the spoilerific trailer Brad was talking about, so therefore I probably won't like this film much.
I'll save my some spoilers and watch the review after I see Terminator Genesys.
I watched the first Terminator a couple of days ago and I got to thinking that it falls into the film noir/future noir category. While the Terminator does bring the element of the slasher horror movie genre, it's also desperate people on the run. I did see that movie on video when I was a kid, which is why I was super excited about the sequel. I think it's a great movie and both are equal in eyes.
Terminator 3 was okay, it could've done without the dorky humor though. The ending does create a genuine feeling dread as the nuclear strikes happen.
Terminator Salvation is not good. The only good thing in the movie is Michael Ironside. I tried watching it again last night, but I just didn't feel like finishing it. At the very least the movie should've had the laser guns we saw in the future scenes from the first two movies.
@commenters who are going after Violet and bitching at Brad for daring to allow her to do a video with him: fuck off.
I don't really know Violet well, but she seems pretty cool, and I'm getting really fucking sick of seeing assholes like you pop up when Brad happens to allow a girl, be it they're together or just friends or w/e, to do things with him. Things they happen to have fun doing together, in addition. (I know the commenters don't pop up with every single new girl, but it still happens rather often.)
In addition, if you're 'suspicious' that she's some twisted fangirl, that she's 'not good enough to do videos with him', that he's going to ruin his videos by 'mixing in his personal life with his videos', and all sorts of other goddamn stupid shit you're assuming, why don't you do this whenever there's a new GUY in his videos? There's not any possibility of that guy being some creepy stalker? Brad's friendship or whatever with that guy is suddenly 'not bringing his personal life' into his videos? Hell, ANY of his friendships for the matter? Oh wait, I get it-it's somehow different with his romantic partner and she doesn't deserve respect or anything and needs to be 'critiqued' by fucking disgusting creepers while the guys on the team can just come on how they please. Not going to assume you guys are misogynistic because I know how mean that would make me, calling you misogynistic for harassing a girl and one who doesn't even know you and assuming all this shit about her, but I'm just saying maybe consider your priorities.
TL;DR: Leave her the fuck alone.
Well said! I'm sick of all the bitching every time there's a woman in one if these videos.
Doubly Agreed !!
I was getting more and more nauseated reading some of these 'creeper commentaries'.... but you've scored every point I wanted to make and in fine fighting style! So instead of wasting my painfully sparking hands on typing, I'll use them thusly:
Yeah, I know what you mean. She just giggled and was trying to understand his POV on the movie and now, all of the sudden, that makes her a psycho fangirl? She could turn out to be crazy, but the keyword is "could" because let's face it, we don't know her. Hell, people used to think Jake was a cool albeit angry dude. Then all this personal drama crap came out in the open and now some people hate his guts. And we know Jake for way longer than Violet. I guess what I'm trying to say is that this could go either way and we shouldn't judge her harshly just because she's Brad's new girlfriend. Plus, that's how relationships work: You get a broken heart, move on, and then find someone else.
I personally have a theory that some of these fanboys might be judging her so harshly because they have a crush on him. The reason why is because some guys have admitted to having a man-crush on Brad and it's common for people say the boyfriend or girlfriend of their crush is a dick without any sufficient reason to. I'm not sure that's the case. It's just a theory, but I could see it happening.
Brad, sometimes I feel really sorry for you. You have to deal with all these basement dwellers that are all up in your personal life and it's kind of creepy. How do you handle it? It must drive you crazy at some points.
Hey! I don't dwell in the basement!
I dwell in the tree outside Brad's window. First story. Small tree. Kinda bends when I shift positions.
Oh god here comes the squirrel again :(
Dude.... hide your nuts! He's making another pass!
SHIT STALKING IS HARD
Geez how many people on here are immature? Have some respect for someone that HE decided to date and put in his Midnight Screenings video. It's none of your business.
Guess I will see it eventually, but while the first synopsis got me excited everything since then has just felt... meh.
And I'm so sorry to disappoint, but... sigh, I don't know how to say this... I don't have an opinion on Violet. I know as an internet commenter I am supposed to either love her or hate her and attack everybody that disagrees with me, but I just can't. Sorry Brad, I guess I just have to let you make your own decisions this time and not tell you that you are right or wrong. I hope you can forgive me for that.
Focusing on the opinions, not the people? Am I in the right comment section?
I don't love her either. But I think some of the people who hate her are way too extreme about it by attacking her as a person and girlfriend rather than as a critic, especially when we know nothing about her thus far other than her opinion on Terminator. I agree though that we can't say for sure how this relationship will turn out.
For a burger that's "mostly jalapenos", the Genisys burger is pretty weak on the spice factor.
Man, Jai Courtney just can't catch a break, can he? And of course Emilia Clarke has no presence as Sarah Connor, not even coming close to Linda Hamilton's stellar performances whether being the horror heroine in the first film or the hard-edged and clearly unstable anti-hero she was in the second film. I just don't buy her as Sarah. When the freaking robot has more charm than the humans, then the writers seriously needed to go back to step one.
I think I'll wait until this movie is on Netflix or on tv for me to watch. It doesn't seem like it's worth paying theater price for.
Better camera, Worse mic. Cest La vi
Brad, this is kind of off topic, but have you seen the show Halt and catch fire? I think you'd really like it if you get a chance to see it.
eh, I wasn't really interested in Genisys anyway. This weekend, I'll probably find a showing of Inside Out instead.
btw, Violet is totes adorable yo
I was suspicious of this movie when I saw the first trailer and they had Sarah (Who I seriously thought was Ellen Page) save Kyle like 5 different times. I get it, Sarah Conner kicks ass. But Kyle Reese also kicked ass.
When it became clear they were doing that thing where they only know how to make a female character strong by taking all strength away from the male characters around her I decided to skip this. It's a tired formula. It's disrespectful both ways around, and the franchise that gave us one of the quintessential female badasses deserves better.
Violet is adorable and has apparently great taste in cartoons! Does she watch Steven Universe too? :D
Hell yeah I do! Steven Universe is probably my favorite cartoon on the air right now! :)
Yeah, CN's really been on the ball in recent years.
I'd like to apologize to you as well. The things I said were uncalled for and mean. I am extremely sorry. Like I told brad I sincerely hope you can accept my apology because I feel like an immense jerk for insulting you and Brad. So please, I apologize and I hope it makes up for my offensive and rude comments.
High five, girl! Steven Universe is the best thing ever right now! :D
Anakin, dude, I've got to assume you just weren't expecting to be called on your shit, because there's no way you didn't mean offense in what you said. Like, for real? You hope we break up because you hate the way I smile, told Brad he could 'do better' because I giggle a lot and didn't have much to say, and you think I'm a "creepy, crazy, twisted fangirl" who'll kill myself if Brad leaves me, that's not exactly "whoops sorry I worded that wrong, I didn't mean to offend anyone!" kinda territory
Like seriously, it's whatever, apology accepted and all that stuff. I'm pretty easygoing and honestly had a pretty good laugh over it more than anything else. But no amount of backpedaling here is gonna convince me this was just a huge misunderstanding.
Um I didn't actually say that I wasn't expecting to get called out on my shit or that I worded it wrong. I said that I was being a jerk rude mean and a dick. And I'm still sorry for all those things. If you look at my apologies I didn't say any of the things you said. But that's cool. I still apologized because I felt bad got called out and I really didn't want any beef after realizing that I fucked up by saying those things. So again never once did I say "whoops sorry I worded that wrong, I didn't mean to offend anyone!" I said what I said I owned up to it and I apologized. Take from that what you will.
I found it funny that the guy who obsessively comments multiple times on Brad's personal life is throwing out the fan "twisted fangirl." If I had to guess, I'd say he's just so torn up that he's not Brad's girlfriend, because he's the only one that can truly make Brad happy.
Least he tried to apologize and do the right thing in the end. Sure he may be an obsessive douchebag but he owned up to it in the end not defending that freak. Also how exactly were the thing he said disgusting? All I got from it was that he was a pissed off whiny little fanboy. It's not like he said he hopes something happens to her like in those exploitation movies brad reviews.
Um, I never said it was a misunderstanding. I was being a dick plain and simple and I honed up to it. Either everyone move on or just dwell on it it's up to all of you including you. but if everyone wants to lynch me even though I apologized go right ahead more power to all of you. Fuck, I'll join you if it helps .Also, you assume too much. But my apology still stands. I'm not trying to be aggressive here, but if I apologized and I genuinely feel bad about it, isn't that punishment enough? Or do all of you want to drag me through the mud some more while beating me with tire irons? If so, cool if not then Christ already calm down.

Damn Brad's gf's only get better looking. Can't wait to see the next one.
They liked your roller coaster of a comment. I like Egg McMuffins. I like hash browns too. Fuck I'm high as shit.
I'm so high right now, I got resin coming out of my nipples.
If you'll pardon the needless prying into your personal life like you're a Kardashian in a fishbowl...you two are crazy adorable. :)
I was wondering what you would think of the movie, in the imaginary situation where it wouldn't have been spoiled by the second trailer. If the big reveal wasn't revealed, I guess.
Alternate title for this video...Brad talks about Terminator Genisys while some broad giggles.
The criticisms directed at Violet seem to come from people who don't interact with people much outside of their computer screen.
Team Snob is very experienced at what they do, after all these years of weekly Midnight Screenings. They're comfortable in front of the camera. And they can think critically about a film as they're watching it, enough to give a coherent review as soon as they step out of the theater.
Violet, on the other hand, is totally new to this. Most people aren't comfortable in front of a camera (the discomfort often can take the form of "not saying much" and intermittent giggles), or coherently critical about a film right after seeing it. Her behavior's pretty normal, and all you whiners would know it right away if you'd ever interacted with real woman.
Gotta comment on the Jake thing since I just found out about it and did some digging around to see what it's all about.
1. After reading everyone's side of the story (mostly Brad's and Jake's baby mama's), I'm taking Brad's side. Jake was being an asshole. Don't know what to say about Rayn. Her whole thing's weird.
2. I never actually liked Jake's contributions to Midnight Screenings. His "Angry Jake" schtick was so phony, forced, and annoying. I disliked when it became a thing, and I like that it won't be a thing anymore. I much prefer Depressed Brian and/or Offensive Irving, when it comes to reviews for extremely bad movies.
Oh, also about the Violet criticisms. I think this movie was also just a poor-fit for her to review. She seems to not be completely familiar with or interested in the Terminator series, and that probably contributed to her not having much to say about it.
So I guess as a bit of constructive criticism, I'd say the next time she does a review, it'd probably be better if it's a movie/series that she's more passionate about.
I'll disagree, an outsider's view is valid too. They can judge it without gripes over in-jokes or continuity.
"His "Angry Jake" schtick was so phony, forced, and annoying. I disliked when it became a thing, "
I disagree with that a lot. That schtick always made me think Jake was a psychopath with angry issues that should seek a psychologist immediately. I guess I was kinda right.
Some of these comments ...... just wow.
I really don't know how you do it Brad..... how do you have the fortitude to put up with these sniveling, cretinous, little cellar-dwellers every time a female friend is introduced is beyond me.
It's like they're insanely jealous and don't want to "share you with some broad"
Pathetic in the extreme.
I really think that's it. Between Brad and Spoony, I've learned that fans are IMMENSELY entitled when it comes to their chosen celebrity and who they pay attention to, and if they have a girlfriend then to these people that means less videos and lower quality because they aren't slaving away, chained to a desk while someone cracks a whip. Well...not that kind of whip. People were blaming April somehow for Spoony's slowdown, ignoring the fact he was moving state and then finding a decent house because of the patreon money THEY were giving him. And there's a ":no one will EVER be good enough for you, therefore everyone you are with is a shrieking harpy" mindset.
this is why I'd rather support a bloody, gritty, over-the-top, comic book inspired Hard-R rated Robocop Versus The Terminator movie. if both franchises can flourish separately, then maybe a Hard-R cross over will. hell, I'd buy that for a dollar.
She only saw the first one? Get her to sit down and watch the second one with you. The T-1000 is such an amazing villain.
Jesus Christ guys, just calm down on the whole Violet thing she seems like an awesome person and Brad's pretty awesome (I dont know them both but this is my take from what I do know) and they seem very happy together. We should focus on our real enemy... this piece of crap movie.
Damn people. Calm your collective tits. I care to the not about what Brad and Violet choose to do with their personal lives. You guys do you.
YES! I'm NOT alone in thinking the 1st Terminator is the best! Don't think me a fool, T2 is awesome, but it's more action packed retelling of the original just as T3 was a retelling of T2. Damn it, all I wanted after T2 was a full movie about the future war, not the same sh*t over & over!
Did they just turn John Connor into a villain...and then fucking UNWRITE him?...the fuck?!!
So Brad, I know it's been half a year since it came out but I have to ask. Did any of y'all ever see the George Lucas animated masterpiece Strange Magic?
Oh yeah, I forgot about that! Was really hoping they'd review it. :(
I saw it about a month ago; I'm curious to see Brad's reaction
Dear Midnight Screenings,
How could you not do the vlog in a car! If there isn't a constant chance of surprises from outside a vehicle and possibly a mugging, it isn't staying true to the original Midnight Screenings! Plus, a webcam? You need to make sure you always use the same camcorder we've come to expect from use in Midnight Screenings. You couldn't at least have the lights shut off every 10-15 minutes? Worst Midnight Screenings ever!
I'm definitely in the "T1 is my fave, T2 is a good movie though" camp. This being PG-13 was one of many warning signs I thought. I guess it's not surprising the scenes with Arnold are the best, either.
I feel similar about Jai as you. He always comes off as a swarmy prick, so I don't like him as a hero. He's like the Randy Orton of action heroes. Keep him heel.
Everyone here talking shit about Violet and Brad's relationship after one video need to chill out. Obviously 30 minutes of one movie review don't give much insight into them as a couple. Just do you brad and be happy man! Oh and i loved your imagining of how the plot was though up.
Usually I'm not one to comment but after seeing some of these bizarre comments I've got to say sometimes people get nervous on camera. Seriously people calm down and quit making yourselves look bad.
-Scrolls through the comments;
Is not at all suprised by shits talking abt woman in video.-
Hope she shows up in every video ever if only to make bros cry.
(In reality, of course, I want her to be in as many vids as she is comfortable/iinterested, disclaimer cause bros are dumb)
Get a life.
I saw 1 person on twitter say it wasn't good and I wouldn't have gone unless people said it was a freaking master piece sooooo PASS.
Violet is just adorable. :)
I can't think of something creepy to say about Violet! I am a failure.
Anyway, this comment section is almost at Man of Steel levels.
Okay, NOW I feel like a total dick. I just hope Brad and Violet accept my apology :-(
I hope a Rancor eats you, your comment was vile, would have prefered you fall in lava on Mustafar.
It's okay, he suffers a fate worse than death: being replaced with Hayden Christiansen in the special editions.
Hey guys I think we should complain about the girl in the video. That sounds like a really good idea.
Congrats bro, she's at least 3 above you, I'm impressed. But now you gotta keep impressing her... do you got a sweet ride? You should get a Camaro, chicks love those. Try wearing a flat brim cap too, that shows u got style
Holy crap Brad your fans are psychos sometimes. Brad has a new girlfriend and everyone pretends they know her and his relationship problems. Anyways she seem nice to me besides seeming a bit nervous.
I'm totally out of the loop regarding these things. Who is Violet? Is she a reviewer? Does she have her own show? She seems kinda familiar somehow.
As far as Brad and Violet as a couple, $#!+, it's not my place. If they're happy together, I hope they're happy together to the end of time. Welcome, Violet! On behalf of reasonable Cinema Snob fans everywhere, I wish you many happy cameos. Even regular appearances, in Midnight Screenings and such, if you are so willing. I'd love to see more of you. Just, now that we (the not-necessarily-stalkerish fans) know of your existence, I hope you don't make yourself too much of a mystery. :)
*looks at comment section*
Haha nope, you little shits are insane and I remember why I don't look at the comments section on this site.
You're wrong, their insanity is exactly the reason why you SHOULD look in the comment section!
What the fuck is wrong with you people?
(referring to the commenters, not you Brad)
They should have just cast Michael Biehn as Kyle Reese! The dude hasn't aged in 30 years!
I don't understand the "Violet is creepy" comments. And because she giggles a lot? Wtf? Maybe she's just shy?? Damn, people.
i liked it for what it was, yeah i agree on jai courtney casting was an odd one, in the trailers i though jason clarke was miss cast too but he was actually good as evil john connor, as for it being the worst one in the series, i actually dont think it is, for me salvation was the worst followed by the tv series. for me it goes T1/T2 then T3, TG,TS and TTSCC (the tv show), TG might be changed on my list after time goes by tho nad after more viewings
When I saw those trailers I thought "either this will be a really fun movie about a T-1000, or an embarrassing fan film." Damn it all!
Go fuck your Turboman, Jake Lloyd. Violet seems cool as hell. She'll be just fine on this site. That is if you cretins didn't deter her from it. Plenty of Team Snob weren't as vocal when they first started compared to now. Hell, unless it's an offensive Jesus movie or some trivial crap, Max Force Himself still doesn't say much. And Dave's the tits.
Brad - to hell with the naysayers, BRO!! She's adorable.
You did see my apology right?
And I'm sure he'll TOTALLY forgive you. You know who also apologized? Germany. Seriously, why are you even replying?
Apologize to your mirror, cockstain. No one wants you.
You're not GoodfellaCam. I am GoodfellaCam. WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?!?!!!!
Though I do like what I apparently said.
I love how you feel you have to fight brads battles for him and with that comment immediately think you're doing him favors goodfellacam.
Also you do realize "you" don't know either of them, right goodfellacam? So everyone's comments be it for or against his current squeeze could mean nothing in passing time. They could break up anytime at all. Or they might not. Nothing is set in stone. Ever. So if she ends up fucking him over or vice versa none of what anyone says will ever fucking matter will it cause no one knows what will happen tomorrow. Also violet seriously the fucker apologized, you're fake "apology accepted" speech is utter bull. If you didn't accept it tell the piece of shit but don't act all passive aggressive that just makes you come off as a cunt. I don't give a fuck what anybody says but at least I'm being fucking honest about it. I could give a fuck who brad dates but fake people are seriously fucking idiots. No one needs them.
"fake people are seriously fucking idiots." You're the same person as Anakin Skywalker, I can see IP addresses. Don't be that guy.
You mean the guy who called you out on your bull shit and was right? Or that guy who attacks his best friend over a girl and makes a video claiming he had a seizure just to cover his ass? By the way, how's violet? Yeah. Fuck you. 😹😹😹😹😹
Jesus Wept ....You're STILL doing this shit?! ...continuing your pathetic stalker act from almost A YEAR AGO? That's like Ted Cruz levels of creepy. Seriously, Roger/Anakin get-a-fucking-life... all this pitiful attention whoring, it's just starting to get sad now....
(BTW: No, you were not & will never be 'right'. Your meth-addled brain has created a narrative that DOES NOT EXIST. Brad put you in your place - now go back to it: that "Whaa Whaa the Snob is a Big Meany-head!" blog of yours. You deserve each other.)
Lol, you're so adorable. You should do yourself a favor and put that barrel in your mouth and pull the trigger, cause you are obviously triggered. Does it make you mad reading my comments about some loser crying about losing some retarded psycho fantard girlfriend? Yeah, no. He attacked Jake. He introduced Brad to the pavement. The only reason the cops weren't involved was because he assaulted Jake. Keep defending an idiot, idiot. I look forward to you responding with some more rectal blood.
Wow. I feel like I have an evolution of everything that defines me in every eight given months. Seems some people never change.
That whole "Kill yourself" attitude you just expressed towards angelique_sp is one of the most immature things I've ever read in my life. Keep your childish bullshit to yourself, asshole.
Man, every word out of your face-hole just reinforces how on target Brad and the other commenters were about you; there's no need to even engage since you end up burning yourself worse than we ever could and all done in the public eye. It's like being in a crowded theater dealing with a screaming toddler, all you can do is smh.
But here's the fun part:
Whenever you talk your smack, it helps me.....because as bad as my surgery/health hassles and emotional issues may get, I can always
look at YOUR situation and be: "whew, least I'm not THAT GUY.... looks like I dodged a fucking bullet!"
But face it boardmates - he's just a sad empty ball made of nothing but envy and invective, someone who:
-- just days after Brad posted an empathetic and vulnerable story of his own battle with depression & suicidal ideation, proceeds to tell someone to 'go kill yourself'. Stay Classy San Diego;
--has to create another commenter ID just to make it look like he has a 'friend';
-- feels SO entitled he's decided to 'vet' any woman Brad comes in contact with (even though no 'mere woman' will ever do);
-- and his tinfoil hat delusions about the Brad/Jake relationship are SO strong, he created a blogroll for them.
Is it me, or is Brad responding to a surprising amount of comments on this video? Or maybe I just don't check the comments enough.
Once I saw the thumbnail, with Brad and Violet together, I knew this video would have a lot of comments--that's just the way it is around these parts. A new girl joins the site, and people just gotta give their two cents.
And, to answer your question: Brad is pretty much active in the comments sections for any video, but for this one it seems a bit more so. I'm sure he knew that the addition of her would cause a shit-storm.
When I saw that this was shot indoors, I was actually hoping that we would indeed have a Cyber-Lloyd cameo. Not getting that is the only whiny bit of bitchery I have to share, for I have been denied my cheap fan-service!
But seriously though, I really miss having fun with Terminator movies. 1 & 2: fun as Hell, then...then it just felt like they treated the franchise like "The Brain That Wouldn't Die". Remove the wires, drain the neck-juice, just let it die if it can't have its dignity back.
"Raised By Terminator" DOES sound like an intriguing movie, though!
It's not the same without them having to open and close the card door everytime it gets to 9 mins 50 secs in just to turn on the lights again
Hey Brad, ever had complete strangers tell you how to run your life?
:looks at thread:
Guess so. Anyway, checking out TG tomorrow then watching your review. I'm thinking it won't be that good.
Wait a minute, its a new face! Man this video looked like the good old days of floor brad. Anyway I give this video 0 stars, you have no chance of getting murdered in a parking lot the suspense in gone! Anyway good healing!
OK, first things first, i really wanted terminator salvation to be better. The cheesy history looked really cool and interesting to me, like every time travel should created and alternate universe is obvious, and the role change is also cool, but if its boring.... I'll just enjoy to drag my husband to the movies to suffer with me, :D
Now about all the girlfriend business, (after all the bullshit i have read i feel compelled to comment) Brad always bring his friend for this reviews, he likes to talks, he likes to share views, when he does it alone he gets really tired and doesn't enjoy them as much, his friends are all different and sometimes I don't like them very much, sometimes i don't agree with their comments or their voices are annoying (brad has a great voice), but, they are Brad friends he needs the dynamic to get a middle ground sometimes and others and accord that is also important in this kind of thing, sometimes when you speak with someone different than you, you learn new things and that is good, and is also more entertaining even if one of the reviewers is an angry psycho. About the girl, I really like her, she seems pretty and fun and really into Brad and they seem happy, back off you nerds, you can keep on having your sweaty wet dreams with Brad alone in your rooms, I wont judge you. i found the idea that all the hate was jealousy for Brad really Funny and oddly right on the money. Also you don't need to be an expert in a movie to comment on it, sometimes the best way to know if the movie is entertaining if is the person doesn't know as much, sometimes two nerds discussing origins sagas in the marvel universe is not what we like to see, i know that there are a lot of people that want that to feel that there is someone like them out there, so they one to see someone as knowledgeable as them agreeing with there views. Also when you know everything about what you are going to see like me. you become a hateful existence to every one around you. everyone happy and you have to say the book was better!!! and that suck!!! and that shit is non canon!!!, so those kind of people have their issues to, people are different and that is a good thing.
You said that all pretty well. A bit long and confusing at parts but I think you're right. Everyone has their own original conscience and that's one of the brilliant things about life. I think that people need to understand that Violet is a human being and it's not right to just judge her as a person.
However, I think I'll disagree with you on the movie thing. I think that I'm going to enjoy this movie because it's an action flick with Arnold. I enjoyed Sabotage, so I'll probably enjoy this. That's my logic. I will be coming in looking at this as a stand alone movie and not a movie that has an impact on the Terminator Saga as a whole.
I thought it was a fun popcorn movie! I enjoyed it and got my money's worth. They'll never make a Terminator movie as good as the first two but this was definitely better than Rise of the Machines and Salvation.
Your new GF brad looks cute i was wondering does she have a sister?
Best part about the comment section is people commenting on Brad's partners as if they personally know him and think they can say what fucking ever they want.
Like we dont know him personally, dont pretend like you're a mate of his and can comment on his relationships and pretty much criticizing his girlfriend as if you know her..
Honestly fuck off with that horse shit its none of your business.
I don't understand why all the hate? Are you all just jealous that Brad has a girlfriend and he's actually happy? Get over it!! If he wants to add Violet to the videos that's his choice. I don't see anything wrong with it. These people have lives outside of being on camera and entertaining you in your mom's basements. We have no reason to be so negative about her. Give her a chance.
The only thing that I do agree is Violet did giggle a lot but I'm sure she was just nervous being on camera and doing this for the first time. Being a girl I completely understand as I do the same thing. Also, I would like to have heard more from her on her opinion of the movie instead of Brad doing all the talking. Other then that I think the video was just fine.
Not gonna lie, I clicked just to read the comments once I saw the thumbnail
What I don't get is why the machines insist on shooting everyone. Really just block out the sun, release all the toxic waste and biological weapons instead.
Won't see this for myself until this weekend, looks like it might be okay... But the more spoiler-heavy trailers did make me dubious on what it revealed. Still, I'm willing to give it a shot.
Violet seems like a nice, sweet and fun girl, Brad, Best of luck to the both of you!
I did not have much confidence that this movie was going to be good and was just going to wait and rent it when it is released on video.
But what happen to Gillian? I just saw you two in two videos together. Is she coming back any time soon or ever? I like Gillian.
So Brad when will you talk about the new Batman game?
I don't think he will, because video game reviews aren't really his thing.
Obligatory Auralnauts remix of the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oe2Agl3bJAc
Seems relevant with regards to your comments about the lack of chemistry of this Kyle and Sarah.
When I tried to describe John Conner to a friend, and I had no idea who Jason Clarke was off the top of my head, the best I could do was "he's a scarred up young version of John C. Reilly"
Hope this one doesn't fuck you over, man.
It sounds like Lee Byung-Hun wasn't utilized. After kicking ass in Korea with A Bittersweet Life and I Saw the Devil, and then doing well in Hollywood with GI Joe and Red 2, i figured he would fare much better.
First off, holy shit Brad you got some creep ass fans. I figured there'd be a couple of weird comments but DAMN.
Great review though, Violet seems really cool, with great taste!
So, does this mean Brad and Jake can finally make up and put the silly drama behind them?
Because of the sound quality and that I was only half paying attention it took me half the review to realize that isn't Jillian. Oops.
Anyway violet seems cool.
Terminator not so much.
Yes let's all post about his relationship instead of the actual review!
I mean I know I come here to watch relationships and the shit hit the fan, wait this is a review site? The hell you say!
Seriously people mind your own business on his love life and shit. Unless you know him in person shut up and just watch the reviews that you're here for.
That said, she looks really young. Hope reviews will go back to the cars though, it's not a midnight review without bad lighting and weird angles.
and since I still don't know what Jake did, I'm still gonna say I miss him and his angry kids reviews.
Brad sure has a thing for goth girls. Can't say I blame him.
Maybe it's because he only can get special snowflakes.
I don't mind Brad's new squeeze. I would hope in future videos she gets more involved with the convo/review. I like when both parties can compare and reference in the review and it seemed like Brad was doing that more so than Violet. It's not a knock against her but more involvement would be cool. On a side note I do miss Angry Jake. He made the kids movies reviews entertaining. I don't know what happened and it's none of my business but best of luck to everyone. I hope to see him back one day maybe...
Violet sure say "yeah" a lot in this video.
This movie is the first time that I've ever disagreed with a Rotten Tomatoes score.
This movie is all kinds of fun, the characters interact really well with each other, I just loved it all around....well except for that stupid ending and stupider after credits scene.
I'm going to see this movie, and I can guarantee that I'm going to like it. There is literally no way that this movie can go wrong with me. Stupid action flicks like this rarely go wrong with me as far as entertainment value.
I'm entering with high expectations. But I'm not entering through a theater, I'm entering through DVD. The only movie I'm going to pay theater price for this year will be Mission Impossible 5. That's the only movie I'm actually REALLY looking forward too.
This is going to definitely be either a DVD or online/one demand rental for me. The only movie that is going to deserve my attention in the theater this year is going to be Mission Impossible 5, and that is going to be the best movie of the year. I'm not paying ticket price for the new Star Wars, and I'm sure as hell not paying ticket price for Specter. Mission Impossible 5 is part of a franchise that thus far has never let me down. I love all of the Mission Impossible films. Mission Impossible 2 is just fucking amazing, Mission Impossible 4 was incredible, and the best part is that they never let go of what makes modern Spy movies good: silver briefcases, glass buildings, concrete military establishments, buildings that have hallways made of black titanium, glowing red laser trip wires, red laser sights on guns; the visual aesthetic is always the most entertaining thing about modern spy films, yet so many of the modern bond films fail to realize that; and they just try to go older than oldschool.
I loved Kingsman The Secret Service. If Mission Impossible 5 somehow leaves me unimpressed, then Kingsman shall be the winner for best movie of the year.
also I don't mean to sound creep but, I really like Violet. She reminds me of my ex girlfriend; she's quiet, has a good sense of humor, and is incredibly beautiful. Sigh... she even dresses in the same style.
It'd be weird if she wore the same strawberry flavored lipstick. I never understood why my ex wore that stuff but I swear it tasted incredible when I kissed her. If it's intended purpose was to keep me coming back for more mouth to mouth action, it certainly succeeded.
At times I find your comments to be either weirdly obsessive and adamant about something seemingly random, or you just say utterly stupid things. But the thing is that sometimes when you're adamant about something random, that random thing just happens to be something I agree with. This is weirdly one of those cases because:
1. I too have high expectations for Terminator Genisys
2. I think that Mission Impossible 5 has the potential to be one of the greatest movies of this entire year; but I'm not going to make any predictions, I'm just saying it has the potential.
3. I also really like Violet, I find her interesting, she likes to listen, and think before actually stating her opinion. I just hope that she and Brad have a nice happy relationship.
Violet is great! I hope to see more of her on the show. She looks like a very friendly person with a good heart, we need more people like that in the world of reviewers. More heart...
It's ironic, all the negative criticism on the comment section for some reason has got me thinking about the true goodness that is rarely found in some people.... it's lucky that we have people who have heart in them in this world.
Hope to see more of Violet on this show. ^-^
You know, I think the one thing I gotta respect you for, is that you and me are just here for the show. A lot of guys in this comment section are always all about getting into Brad's personal space, they always dig stuff up on social media about him and his friends, always trying to bring out conspiracies and crap. But you and me? We respect team snob for the hard work they do for our amusement. And while we don't always agree on things, we both try our best to argue with one another sensibly without spouting out insults. Like seriously, does anyone else who comments here do that?
Well, it's not just that we both like the show, it's that we both like the people on the show. Like no matter what stupid shit you say in this comment section, I think it's good that you're at least always respectful to Brad. I mean, I've seen you rant and rant like a maniac at the reviews of Star Trek Into Darkness and Die Hard 5; but even then, as much as you disrespected Brad's opinion, you at least respected him as a person.
It sounds like a total bromance!
I ship it!
Let me guess - this has to be Violet herself, right?
Well even though I didn't see the movie, because I always wait for a review of it. And from what I heard in this video and other critiques of the movie...I must say I'm underwhelm from what the synopsis is...Dude, they have so many paths and so many ideas that they could use in this stupid flick! Here's what I will say I like that they did do, story-wise: I like having Arnold being a terminator sent in the 70's, and being a father figure for young Sarah, Plus John Connor being a terminator, and alter the timeline...However the cast was completely backwards and doesn't mix well with the characters... And I seriously didn't have to watch the film, because the trailer ruined my curiosity for it, so I end my critique of the trailer with a simple "Just let it die...just let it die in it's prime..." Because Carpenter was a way better director of the original Terminator, or Hell even James Cameron was awesome! But none of them directed this movie, which didn't become mind-blowing... Rest in peace Terminator...you will surely be missed... So Thank you again Sir Jones... For having a taste in good films...
Alright, I'm gonna do something that 75% of the comments are not doing: talk about the movie and not Brad's personal life. As someone who has only seen parts of Salvation, I will tentatively qualify this as the worst Terminator film, although from what I've seen, Salvation will likely top it. Genisys was just a huge mess that did nothing but complicate the timeline of these movies. I'm pretty much right in line with you on this one, Brad. I didn't flat out hate it, but it was so unnecessary.
Well, that is my general question with the Terminator "franchise". We had two GREAT movies with an (kinda, sorta) uplifting ending to the second one. The story was told. Every movie since then was pointless!
The comment section of this video got weird fast.
I remember Terminator 1,2, 3, and 4. Each of those had robots, time travel, time traveling robots, shape shifting, survival thriller type action. Let's face it, TERMINATOR IS RUINED.
I agree with Violet on this one. It held my interest, but it's just not a very good film. In fact it's by far my least favorite in the series and I'm thinking it's time to lay it to rest.
So I saw this last week. More spoilers here on out.
I liked it. While I didn't feel there was a black hole of (no) sexual chemistry between Sarah and Kyle I thought Emilia Clarke did a better job with her end of what was a pretty messy situation since Pops Terminator had told her everything about Kyle Reese, including that his death, so she was trying not to have the feelings she was having for him. I really didn't get much more than a "some interest" vibe off of Jai Courtney.
I think my favorite scene was during the replication of Kyle Reese going into the store to find some clothes where he puts the shoe up to his foot to see if it looks big enough, decides it is, then goes to find somewhere to put them on BUT NEVER LOOKS AT THE SHOE/FOOT COMPARISON!
I like Violet. She seems like a sweet girl and seems to enjoy being Brad on and off camera.
As for Terminator Genysis, I have not seen it yet. But given the harsh reviews & anger it gave to many people, I really gotta see it. I have a thing for bad movies.
I saw this movie over the weekend and I actually ended up enjoying it. It wasn't a great movie by any stretch, sure, but I ended up still coming out of the theater liking this movie. There's some good stuff here! But there's some stuff to not like here as well.
I liked the "revisit" of the 1984 stuff and, really, think the movie should have stayed there (and there's no logical reason for them to jump to 2017 for their plans. Why shrink their time to stop Skynet from 30+ years to a day or so?!) And to answer Brad's question on why recreate them rather than use the actual footage, I'd say because making the 1984 film stock look like modern-day digital-quality video would impossible. They could clean it up but it wouldn't look like the the rest of the movie.
I really liked the moments in 2032 with taking the time machine and seeing Skynet launching the original Terminator, etc. That's all pretty good stuff.
But there is some stuff to not like in this movie, sure, and the main problem with the movie for me was that what Skynet now is doesn't make any sense. It goes from a military optimization program to being a "killer app" that a billion people have pre-ordered? And what does this amazing app do? It connects your social media accounts and other personal data/accounts in to one accessible thing? .... Can't I already kind of do that?
I agree Jai Courtney (pretty much Hollywood's place-holder actor. He's not the final piece of the puzzle he's just there until we find something better. But they never found the real "piece" and left Jai in) was pretty much nothing like Kyle Reese. Having watched T1 last night, yeah, there's no connection between T1 Kyle and T:G Kyle. I can cope with the appearance change but Kyle in T1 was strong, confident and pretty much communicated solely by yelling sternly.
I do think that a movie set in the 70s with the T-800/"Pops" raising young Sarah would have been good.
Overall, it's a decent enough movie. I liked it. It's not great, it's not T2 levels of good, by any means, but it was better for me than T3 and T:S (by far.) There's a lot of things it should have been different or done something different but, alas, it didn't.
I can understand not liking this movie, sure. But it wasn't horrible.
The best part of this review was while I was watching it on my laptop with the new windows 10... the voice activated Cortana decided to open up and search for this : "People were gonna see it weather like in mosko your not yeah over and see it because you."
And the first result that came up was the IMDB page for "Stripes"
Ugh... not done in the car?
It can be as well worded and reasonable as it wants, and the comment section can be full of adorably hilarious idiocy (highlight being Brad owning that Anakin creep... must be "Attack Of The Clones" Anakin)... but I will stick with REAL Midnight Screenings, thank you very much. :P
I think I've figured out what I don't like about this movie. It ruins the character of Sarah Connor. 'Terminator' was her story, it was about her living through one night of pure Hell that made her into steel and set her on the road to fulfilling her destiny. By unwriting that, 'Terminator: Genisys' has turned this Sarah into just another generic badass bitch with a shotgun.
This movie was so awful, I'm re-watching it right now and it's just like nails on a chalkboard.
They went with the deleted scenes from T2 as though they are canon but then DID NOT GO ALL THE WAY so the Arnie in this one is half baked at best, in the 8-10 years Pops was raising Sarah he learned less than Uncle Bob who learned in 2 days what it is to be human.
Fuck this stupid ass movie.
`Never mind the how can the terminator work in the past when every other robot fell down dead
`How does the Terminator know what the old man Arnie was a T-800 when he's covered in living undamaged tissue from such a long distance.
`Prove you aren't a shapeshifter, ummm if he was a shape shifter YOU'D BE DEAD YOU MORON!
`I'm not even going to touch the idiotic part about EVERYONE using the same operating system, that's just laughably stupid.
A movie about J.K. Simmons' character would have been amazing.
A movie about Skynet in the future having won the war against TechCom would have been more interesting SINCE THEY SEEM TO HAVE WON AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FUCKING MOVIE! when it shows a room of dead people with the Skynet bot taunting mecha JC.
The sweet taste of Pepsi MAX...
A movie about the terminator saving Sarah instead of a flashback that is cooler than the entire movie it takes place in.
A TV series about the T-800 doing construction. (Think 15 minute animated show on Adult Swim)
Agree, Good Ideas but MAN the fucked it up. I also love the First Movie way more than the second :)
