Man I want the cancer that gives you great skin and perfect hair. I have been around people with cancer and they look like they are on death's door step. In every trailer cancer girl looks like she is on the set of a fucking photo shoot.
The movie The Normal Heart that recently came out about AIDS made those people look like shit. They all looked like you could push them over with one finger.
'The Normal Heart' was a damn good movie, (although I'm still a big fan of 'And the Band Played On' for the medico-forensic bits). :)
That story about Dave is exactly why I love watching these videos, most of the time I don't care about the movie you're reviewing, it's the tangents you go off on.
Nobody watched these for the reviews :P
I know you have talked about "2D Glasses" before. If you didn't know the guy who makes those is the brother of the guy who wrote the book.
... So I lost a bet and had to see this movie... I was hoping the cast would save it for me (hateHATEHATE this book and I love John Green and his other books but TFIOS read to me like it was romanticizing cancer and as someone who almost lost my dad to cancer I find that really fucking grating...)
And they kinda really did. I was much more into the movie surprisingly! Shailene and Nat (who is the acquaintance of a friend of mine and who seems like a nice guy in addition to being a great actor) did great and douchecookie boyfriend was played really cute and I guess putting faces to words made it feel more real which doesn't erase my big problem but it makes it hurt less I suppose. I give it a tentative ashamed thumbs up for being a good movie that still makes me feel rotten inside because of personal rage.
The rabid fan girls in our theater can go thoroughly fuck themselves though. Rude, loud, obnoxious white girls who kept calling cancer romantic and saying that the actress should have been prettier and god if this movie had been a half hour longer the staff would be sweeping teeth and bloody popcorn off the floor ugh.
50/50 is better.
I didn't see "The Fault in Our Stars" but "50/50" is a hard movie to beat. Plus it's the only cancer movie with <spoilers> a happy ending </spoilers>.
Can you guys fly me out so I can see "How to Train Your Dragon 2" with you? I can get to LaGuardia from where I live pretty easy.
Did I just hear Sarah make a Red Ribbon Army reference? She is now my favorite person.
Sleepaway Camp? Fuck me, that review and that fucking mask and growling noises gave me nightmares. All of the fuck that shit.
48 fps. Definitely looks like a BBC mini-series. Props look like props and the makeup looks so plastered on, but at least the CGI looks like it's a video game cut scene, so there's that.
So I saw the trailer of this movie with my girl and then didn't go see it, Man did it suck. Did you know this movie was actually funded by Communist? and it shows! the hammer and sickle is everywhere not to mention this whole movies theme is red! And is it any coincidence that this movie was originally meant to come out in October!? more like RED OCTOBER! THIS FILM IS A FRONT FOR THE KGB DONT SPEND YOUR MONEY ON IT YOU UN PATRIOTIC ANTI AMERICAN COMMIE LOVING TRAITORS!
dude.....you REALLY need to get back on your meds....seriously....
Havent people seen south park?Fag refers to a harley driving douche these days.
No, it doesn't. Shut up.
personally i always assumed it was meant to supposed to be an obnoixous person.
Kind of wish it did so we can use it like back in the early 2000s and no one got offended because it was no longer seen as a demographic specific slur. especially since it had at least 3 other meanings before the modern usage.
I worked the midnight premiere and me and my co-workers were all astounded at how many tiny little white girls came swarmed the place. I cannot imagine having to have actually sat down with them.
I'm bi, I have an excellent vocabulary, and I STILL call people "faggot" from time to time. Sometimes it's the only word that fits. A faggot is an annoying, foolish, narcissistic person.
It's like the word "retard". When I call people retard, I am referring to their foolish actions. I am not talking about people who are actually retarded.
You need to stop the politically correct bullshit, and stop using soft language. Soft language is something the extreme left use to shelter themselves from REALITY.
Yeah, whenever you hear somebody dropping slang, curse words, and racial slurs, it's usually a right winger, because they like to keep it REAL. Unlike the libtards hurp durp Obama Benghazi durp
I'm a conservative and your use of "Benghazi" offends me.
Sarah's not coming to your house and shooting you in the face for calling someone a faggot. Stop being offended that someone else is offended. There is no point.
I'm offended that you're offended that they're offended at someone else being offended.
Oh please. 'politically incorrect' (the way righties use it) = "How dare you not let me be as racist/sexist/homophobic as I want without calling me out on it!"....basically a fucking dodge. So take your lamely-veiled political crap and shove it up your ass....
"Righty"? I have two family members who are left-handed. Stop using that word, it's handist.
Goddammit Brad! I shouldn't have watched this review before I saw the movie. And it's not because of the spoiler (I read the book so I knew about that), but because I kept picturing Dave as Augustus when I was watching the movie. Now I really want a video of Dave, in a fedora btw, with an unlit cigarette and saying "It's a metaphor you fucker".
I thought the movie was a good adaptation of the book, though there were a few things I wish were not left out. Gus getting sick was sanitized in the movie. In the book he had a few humiliating moments during his last days. I wish that they could some how have shown Gus get thinner and thinner, losing his athletic body. And I think he vomited up most of his meals. Maybe it would have shaken up the teen girl audience. His video game skills also got worse and worse as he got sicker. I also liked Hazel counting how many people would die in a book or a movie. The audience was annoying though. So many "Oh my Gods!" and gasping, and people just being loud. What ever happened to being quiet in a movie? On a random note, I'd love to see a cutesy teen romance movie that ends like the anime School Days. (And have the ending come out of absolute no where)
Man, I want to see a series of Young Brad's life, now. The Dave driving stories were hilarious xD
I'd like to think the show would be like a modern day That 70s Show crossed with It's Always Sunny, aired on HBO or somewhere uncensored.
So if Ansel Elgort could play young Dave, who would play young Brad & Jake?
Miles Teller would definitely be a young Jake, and I have no idea who would be Brad. Maybe he could play himself but with a wig.
I can't wait for the arc where we watch them make "Sadistic Bitch".
Easily my favorite comment in this entire video. Irving jabs aside.
I guess the "stars" were like "nope" when they saw that Irving was going to review this movie.
Also, if you were still wondering, (having just finished the book right before watching the movie) the author of An Imperial Affliction had a disdain for modern technology so he had the assistant transcribe his words into e-mail form.
Glad you enjoyed the movie, and am looking forward to ...Dragon...2 (both the movie and the review).
Ok, Brad. Now you've got me intrigued. Jake at 'How to Train Your Dragon Too the sequel 2', we need to hear from him the story of Dave hitting the foreign delegates. That sounds like comedy gold.
I second this. WE NEED TO KNOW!
Breaking Bad is the greatest TV series since Twin Peaks.
I disagree. Breaking Bad is the greatest TV show since maybe... "Avatar: The Last Airbender". Hannibal is the greatest TV show since Twin Peaks.
Oh come on. I take it up my ass and "faggot" as an insult is totally fine. Don't be such a PC whiner.
"Nobody asked you, faggot."
Irving is my favorite critic here, he's the only one who talks shit about Jews. Also, my comment was directed towards the chick (Sarah?) who was complaining about Hill's use of "faggot" or "queer" or something against a photographer.
I did a podcast with someone with the nickname Faggot Josh, and I think if you've seen anything I've ever done, you should know I'm not PC.
So would you characterize yourself as mac then?
Mac? No way. Sure, Brad's a short guy who likes to eat at Macdonalds, but Pepsi is his drink of choice, not Coke.
Yeah, totally not PC, bro.
According to the personality quiz, I'm the McPoyles.
actually i dont think it matters....do you like milk and unibrows?
How about you try taking it in the mouth - permanently.
Either way, just shut the fuck up.
I love this comment!
"I personally do not find it offensive, so what are you all complaining about."
okay the start of this video and Dave's cardriving story is already top 2014 material
Is it me or was Sarah even more adorable and funny than usual in this review? She's just a beard away from me making a blog about people who look like her.
Oh and I hope we'll get a "Wait...that's on Bluray?" segment on Sleepaway Camp.
I think the bad reaction was just because of the online community the author John Green has. I watch his videos, but I can imagine people on YouTube who don't like him or his fans run into his videos and people referencing him a lot.
Alot of it also had to do with John Green being a bit of a dick, but that's a whole other can of worms.
How awesome was Willem Dafoe in this movie? Spiderman awesome or The Boondocks Saints awesome?
"The Last Temptation of Christ" awesome.
P.S.: Brad absolutely hates "The Boondock Saints".
I did not know that he hated The Boondock Saints.
Yeah. He REALLY does. Check out his old review of Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day.
They should do a video of nothing but Dave stories. As they sound awesome, and need explanation from Dave himself, haha!.
Cello: Is It Me You're Looking For
There's always room for Cello
This movie is so much better if you imagine it's an alternate version of what happened to Laura Dern's and Willem Dafoe's characters in Wild At heart.
Words that Jonah Hill could have said instead of "faggot": shit-heel,shithead,dipshit,fuckwad,fuckface,dickface,dickwad,asshole,asshat,dumbass, jackass,douchebag,douchenozzle,twatwaffles, and probably bastard. So don't give Sarah or me any bullshit about that being the "only word out there to use" and that not using a homophobic slur makes you into a PC chicken shit(another insult that Jonah Hill could have used instead.)
