Stoopid blip, process it
I know, right? Just wish it would work.
I am always amazed at some of the films that get released commercially, and this is no exception. Where do these things come from?
Hey Dave, I have a chain wallet and am white, and I do not appreciate you comparing me to my own personal product. You have little knowledge of my personality and demeanor, therefore you are not qualified to judge me. By the way, Man of Steel is totes awesome and Tyler Perry is the black jesus. By the way also, my negro friends said that I'm not a tool...so nyah you insufferable penis.
yes u r a penis, especially for comparing Tyler Perry to Jesus r u fucking serious? he is one of the worst directors working today but I will agree with the Man of Steel comment
LOOK AT THE NAME OF THE COMMENT!!!!!!! ...STUPID...WHITE...GUY.!
That wooshing sound is the joke going over your head…
I would just like to insert a Ric Flair "WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"
I guess not ALL people are stupid on the Internet after all.
lol, you real stupid, daddy.
Cannot stop laughing.
Dave's spiderman Uncle Ben. With great power comes great responsibility, boom, boom bahahahahahahahahahaha
and Pa Kent. I wanna die not raise you!
Seriously, that made my sides hurt. Great vid! Fuck Tim Story.
And Get On Up could be good, but yes he looks nothing like James Brown. lol
man, that got kinda actiony there with the drivin' and shit.
Has there ever been a movie with "Too" in the title that was any good?
Does 'A Bridge Too Far' count?
I don't think "Look Who's Talking Too" is awful.
The Man Who Knew Too Much
that's all I got
"The Man Who Knew Too Little" with Bill Murray
"Captain America 2: Death Too Soon" with Reb Brown :D
Are you saying a cross between Ax'Em and Las Vegas Bloodbath with all the death scenes cut out ISN'T the movie of the year?
Jesus Christ I didn't expect this sorta reaction from "Think like a man too", how did you guys feel about the movie before going into it?
Yeah this movie was bizarre. I mean the whole thing rockets through any explanation from the get go. Luckily, I got to see this for free because one of my family members won tickets to the premiere.
As for the basketball analogy, I went back to watch the first one after I saw this. The whole thing is based around girls who read this Steve Harvey book on how to get men to do what they want. The guys find out. Kevin Hart starts using basketball analogies (after playing basketball with the other men in one scene) to describe the men trying to one up the women on their "game" against the men.
Hope this gives -some- type of insight on the stupidity.
Wow you guys are so angry you're summoning lightening! Also while I have not seen the first film, but I heard it was a sexist piece of shit, like this film. So yeah not missing much!
-your tone in your wording is very delicate yet surprisingly spicy.
-your name implies that you're very energetic and have quite a few friends.
-The way you say "sexist piece of shit", implies that you are sensitive to sexism (which means I probably shouldn't talk to you since I'm very sexist)
So what I've derived from all of this is that you are, indeed, a very interesting person.
When Dave said this movie was worse than a Medea movie I did a spit-take.
I liked the sweet cameo of the thunder and lightning in this video.
With all that lightning, I was expecting this review to turn into a found-footage horror film. Then again, I'd go see Paranormal Activity 6 if it started with Brad and Dave bitching about a terrible movie.
it's another one of those stupid Black Movies only for Black People ugh so annoying
I completely agree. As a black person, looking at the quality of the dialogue and overall sterotypical behavior, it seems almost like self racism and I find it pretty insulting.
I remember liking the first one, so this is a bit shocking (though only a bit). Maybe this movie is around to balance the universe after 22 Jump Street ended up being really funny. At the very least, we got a funny review out of it, so it's not a total bust. Too bad it was a bust for Brad and Dave. Better luck next time, boys.
There's a scene in this movie in which Kevin Hart is drowning in a swimming pool. His one friend says to the other, "Should we help him?" The other friend just calmly shakes his head and says, "Nah."
This movie could have been brilliant if the very next shot had been of an ambulance with Kevin Hart's body on a stretcher being loaded in because he drowned. Maybe they could have a quick scene at Hart's funeral, but otherwise, he's out of the movie and never mentioned again.
I was holding out some futile hope that would happen until the bitter fuckin' end.
So, did this make you more mad than Endless Love?
according to the twitter reaction you two are alone in disliking this movie... and that makes me sad
I guess the movie was so bad that the city of Springfield was covered with angry lightning! It would've been hilarious if you were driving at 88 miles per hour then the lightning strikes you and ended up a year later watching another crappy movie. I'm about to watch Back to the Future anyway!
Dude, 2015 is the year THREE Terrence Malick movies are scheduled for release. If anything, they go back to the past and watch Best Man Holiday again.
Oh booooy, Transformers 4 review next week...can't wait!
this is what happens now the illuminati even started recruiting talentless morons into their group
Oh yeah every Kevin Heart movie will include a weak white guy stereotype because the faggots is so insecure about being a fucking midget xd Its quite pathetic really.
Like that weak white guy stereotype in Ride Along that was nonexistent.
Or it could just be shitty writing. Either way.
you missed the HEY YOU STOP IT WHITE GUYS DONT FIGHT!! and nonsense like that?
You aren't getting the higher complexities of the "You're white. You don't fight." line. He's saying this statement to poke fun at the fact that white people are blanketed under a stereotype applied in modern American culture that they are to seen as successful and nonthreatening members of functioning society, while those of non-European ethnicity are seen as inherently prone to violence and disorder. It's aftually a very funny and complex satire on the state of mental segregation in America due to the historical and cultural limitations once and still imposed among black people within the media we Americans experience. That, or it's a dumb joke and shouldn't be taken as racist, for it is too stupid to make sense.
I can't wait to see the Jersey Boys video, Brad. One of my old high school friends is in the movie (she plays Mary Delgado).
Josh Gad was great in Jobs, and I like how you guys brought up Man Of Steel, got some major laughs on this video
I liked him as Elder Cunningham from The Book of Mormon Musical, that's where I first heard of him.
If nothing else good came out of this review, the storm you guys had up there reached down here in Ohio, suppressing allergies at least for the afternoon.
This is the most action packed Midnight Screenings video ever!
Eh, I kind of like Taraji P. Henson but only because of her work in Person of Interest. Didn't see the first movie, not going to see this one. Not my cup of tea. Jersey Boys looks interesting though. I'll be seeing that in a couple of weeks with my family.
As for Transformers 4...ugh! I'm really on the fence about that. Sure the first Transformers was fun but the second one was so god awful that a. That's the first time I ever got bored during an action scene, b. I saw G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra right after and thought that was a much better movie (I actually like the movie because I found it fun and I'm a Stephen Sommers fan but I know I'll get flack for saying that because I know its universally hated for some reason.) and C. I skipped out on Transformers 3 and know I made the right choice.
That being said, I'm really on the fence on this one because I know its going to be AWFUL but my interest is piqued because it has a good cast and dinosaurs and part of me is thinking its hopefully going to be like the first film but I don't think it will be.
What really ticks me off is that Kelsey Grammar had scheduling conflicts between this and Days of Future Past, of which he had a pretty substantial role but had to be reduced down to a cameo. But he's Beast, man! The perfect live-action Beast! He needs one more good substantial X-Men movie to be in and then I will be totally happy and satisfied so Transformers 4 better be worth it or if it (most likely) isn't, I'll be super mad and want to ask Grammar why because I love him as an actor.(If its his agent's fault, I'm punching that person in the face. (not really of course, but I'll want to.). At the very least, I hope Grammar has a more substantial role in X-Men: Apocalypse (sorry about the long rant.)
maybe he just realised xmen was going to suck horribly and be another jackman/fatty lawrenec show
No offense but I think you're in the minority there, dude. Just out of curiousity, what made you dislike it and what would you have done differently?
Actually, they kind of self-referenced themselves with the Hugh Jackman role in that Wolverine was the wrong person to be sent back but at the same time, I thought they gave a good reason for why he was the only one who could physically be sent back in time, it added to the suspense and drama of the film, and he helped add to the character arc of the younger Xavier very very well, showing some nice character growth since the beginning of the series himself.
As for the "Fatty Lawrence" quip, Dude, really? You're describing an actress you don't like as fat? That's just being unnecessarily mean, cruel, and immature. You're entitled to your opinion of not liking her but give a better reason than that. (Just in case though, if you're just being a troll trying to tick people off, I cordially invite you to suck an egg. If not, I apologize, but honestly, be a little more open-minded, will ya?)
I sincerely hope Mr. Yeah's comment was just trolling.
If she's fat, then what the fuck am I, morbidly obese or something!?
I think he was because otherwise we probably would have heard something by now. Fine by me though. I think Jennifer Lawrence is a wonderful actress and quite beautiful, not to mention a great part of the film :). Some more good news: Kelsey Grammar does want to do another X-Men movie as Beast: woohoo! (I know I'm obsessing about that but its way too good an opportunity to miss out on it)
I think he was, otherwise we would have heard something from him by now. Fine by me though. Personally I think Jennifer Lawrence is a wonderful actress, plus quite beautiful as well and also a great role in Days of Future Past. Some more good news: Kelsey Grammar wants to be Beast in another X-Men movie. Woohoo! (Sorry if I'm obsessing about that but that's way too good an opportunity to be missed out on.)
The reason why I'm tracking the number of days till the release date of Transformers 4 isn't to see the movie itself, but to listen to Brad's review about it. I can't wait till next week :D
Worse than A Million Ways to Die in the West is a pretty damning criticism. Sounds like quality whiplash from last week's movies.
Reverse racism? I resent that Brad are you implying black people can't be racist?
You know whats an awful awful disgrace?It has a 22% on rotten tomatoes but a user score of 79 FUCKING PERCENT!!And 22% is way too fucking high for this.My friend saw it and he said it deserves a 0.
Meh, any movie with a talking gorilla is better than Casino Royal 1960.
I wouldn't rate this zero percent.
I thought I was writing a comment for "Zookeeper"
My computer decided to lock up shortly into this film, but I managed to get the following in a loop through my audio when that happened:
"... was a turd. This was a... "
Seems an apt description of this film, and my feelings about my computer at the time.
I'm getting sad now. It's getting harder and harder to defend Kevin Hart's movie choices.
I just like to imagine that Kevin Hart's better movie efforts are getting shot down in the same way as how Barton Fink got screwed over.
Well at least it's not raining *SHANK*
sorry I had to make that completely out of place family guy reference.
Hey I can't get mad at a guy who choses bad movies; that's like saying that just because The Rock chose to partake in Journey 2 and The Tooth Fairy, that that somehow makes him an unlikable person.
That of course is not true: The Rock is amazing and always will be amazing. IF YOU SMMELLELELELELELELELEL! WHAT THE ROCK-IS-COOKIN!
You should go see Jersey Boys. Its way better than any preview I've seen for this cockamamie Steve Harvey contraption.
Besides, at one point in Jersey Boys, Chris Walken wears a robe that's a cross between The Continental and his character in Balls of Fury.
you've seen brad tries. now you've seen brad drives. next brad dies, i hope not.
It was nice of God to give His input on the movie with you guys. Too bad Springfield had to deal with him thinking it was terrible.
Welcome to another episode of Brad Drives.
I hope you guys get a prescreening of Dear White People.
Interesting you brought up John Goodman, he's voicing the fat autobot with the beard made of bullets. I kinda hope he's in not give a shit and most of his lines are slurred or something
HE'S IN THAT?! Goddammit why does Transformers 4 have all these really good actors in it?
For one of three possible reasons.
1 - The script was good.
2 - His kids and/or grandkids wanted him to do it.
3 - Paycheck.
just imagine John Goodman's voice coming out of this thing
I think your first point has been disproved, Something.
Transformers 4 currently sits at a 50% on Rotten Tomatoes...
MAN ZEUS IS PISSED AT YOU FOR SPENDING MONEY ON THIS SHIT
Tim Story betrayed Shiva.
Kevin Hart's stand up is good? Kevin Hart is one of the most insufferable, talentless hacks I've ever seen! He's loud and he jokes about being short...brilliant.
I think people think he's funny because he looks like a pale modernesque Captain Jack Sparrow. Then when he tries to say something funny people are like "HEY! It's the pale modernesque jack sparrow! that's funny!"
Honestly, nah he's not that funny.
Dude... have you ever wondered how beavers have sex? They have those stupid ass tails, how do they have sex with those dumbass tails getting in the way of things?
seriously though how do they do it? How do beavers have sex?
IF YOU CAN ANSWER MY QUESTION, PLEASE LEAVE A REPLY! MY FUTURE IS COUNTING ON YOU, AMERICA!
They don't. Beavers carve new ones from wood. Every one of them is a soulless, wooden automaton.
Kinda like the performances in this movie, I guess, so that's appropriate.
lol that's perfectly true. Well said sir, well said indeed.
Watch his stand-up. Because you clearly have never seen any of it. That's why he's funny. Now zip it, Mr. Efron.
I know some people who think Jeff Dunham's early work(before it became the Achmed the Dead Terrorist Show) was bad. I think Doug Walker is one of those guys.
I also know a few folks who think that George Carlin was nothing more than an embittered old man who did nothing but rant.
Dear hipster dipshits. 1. There are black Republicans. 2. The Democrats started the KKK. 3. Lincoln, who FREED THE SLAVES was a Republican.
Do some research!
Politics is far more complicated than that due to how politics shift and change over time. Republicans are not notable for race relations anymore given there constant pandering to white middle America.
Do some research yourself. There have been 6 party systems in the history of the US, and what you say was only relevant until the 60s, when the fifth party system collapsed because there was a massive ideological shift. Do you think it is an accident that until the 60s the former CSA was dominated by Democrats BUT is since then dominated by Republicans? Why do you think the former slave states vote reliably for Republican presidential candidates?
There are black Republicans, but 90% percent of African Americans vote for Democrats.
Finally, "hipster"? Does this word have any meaning left? Do you know what a hipster is?
Let's all admit that political jokes just aren't funny.
2 things can happen:
#1 If you take politics seriously: You get the joke (which is more of a reference to a political belief than an actual joke) and you'll chuckle if you agree with the "joke" and if you disagree you'll just get pissed off and leave angry comments on some poor Joe's website.
#2 If you don't take politics seriously at all: you won't get the joke, you'll see it as a cheap reference and thus get pissed off at the fact that it's there, and you'll leave angry comments on some poor Joe's website.
I'm one of those guys who just doesn't get a shit about politics, I plan on going through life without voting in a single presidential election. It's not like I give a shit who wins, and it's not like I can foresee the future and tell which guy is going to do what when in most cases they're both full of shit.
You can rant and rant and bring up statistics, but the bottom line is that political jokes just aren't funny and they never will be.
You can joke about the president's appearance, his voice, and his personality, but once you start joking about his performance it's not longer a laughing matter.
Take David Letterman for example: he joked about George Bush throughout George Bush's entire presidency. The joke's were mostly just joking about George's crappy speeches and goofy wordings of things: those joke's were funny. But once he got around to George's performance, the jokes were no longer funny, so he just stuck to making fun of Bush as a person rather than a president.
That's why the whole "white republican" stereotype in these movies is never funny because it's a political stereotype that is offensive towards a certain political belief. THERE. It's not that it's "incorrect" because even if it was "correct" then it wouldn't be something I'd laugh at no matter how "true" it is.
In conclusion: I don't give a shit about politics, therefor political jokes tend to annoy me because they take me out of the comfort zone that the comedy is supposed to give me when I watch it.
I think basically everyone on this site is liberal in some form or another. I think the sole conservative on TGWTG as a whole is Linkara and he's Libertarian.
I vote Republican(not a member of the party, though, and there are many issues that I disagree with on their platform), but I freely associate with liberals of all colors and creeds because I don't filter my friends based on political views. I've also been banned from both liberal AND conservative pages on Facebook due to my dissent against their admins.
If these guys wanna make their snark about Republicans or whatever from the comfort of their car, with no one to actually dissent against them, I say let 'em. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
I don't see politics as a source of variety, I see it as a way to label people. I tend to get more pissed off at liberals because they tend to attack conservatives more-so then conservatives tend to attack liberals.
But I don't like either sides, they're both stupid in my opinion. If I was a member of a political party, it would be called the "I don't give a shit, now excuse me while I clean my bathrobe and drink Dr Pepper Vanilla Float" party
You're not wrong about how stupid both sides can be, dude. I'm just saying that I think it's stupid to automatically look down on a person just because of their political views, whether conservative or liberal.
hmm... come to think of it I guess I'm trying to say the same thing.
Only I'm also saying that politics in itself is a stupid topic, and that having any belief in politics at all is a waste of time. I feel the same way about biological science, as well as psychiatry. Hell I don't even believe in psychiatry because I'm a writer, and I believe that it's impossible to fully understand a person's conscience no matter fucking what.
I think all of that is mostly because as a dedicated writer, I don't believe in anything that doesn't truthfully exist within the world of literature. Human biology and psychiatry are just as meaningful concepts in literature as the concepts of karma and fate; they don't exist unless you make them exist; not as a fact, but as a concept.
The same goes for politics, it doesn't matter what you believe, just go with the flow when it comes to life and you'll be okay, or not, it doesn't matter really.
I'm not bashing your statement dude, I'm just offering my input. Like how a sexy piece of blue cheese offer's it's input inside a fridge.
I'm with you guys, personally I wish Brad and the gang would only joke about things that I don't like or don't agree with . I don't like it when they make jokes about things that I like, it hurts my feelings.
Not only do I wish they would have gotten a conservative on the phone during what was clearly a joke, but I also wish they would immediately call up someone who likes Man of Steel every time they say something negative about it. Why stop there, I also think they should invite someone into the car who hates Dredd whenever they say something positive about it. Or how about when they use terms like "that's retarded." I think it's pretty obvious that they need someone mentally handicapped there to tell them that is wrong. Or when Irving makes racist jokes, clearly they also need someone of that minority in the car to give them their thoughts.
I mean, that's only fair. Personally, I don't get into politics though, nor do I care about them, which makes it very weird that I am hugely affected by this, come to think of it. Now where am I going to go to balance it out by hearing conservatives bash liberals? AM Radio? Maybe, I'm not sure, I'll need someone from FM radio here to counter balance my thoughts on whether I should turn on AM radio.
I hope you guys learned your lesson. All political jokes are terrible, just look at the complete failures of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report and Dennis Miller Live and Real Time. Those went away and were never heard from again. I also I feel I should mention that I like to pretend that I don't know the difference between 1800s liberals and conservatives and modern day liberals and conservatives. It really helps my argument when I bash liberals.
I don't have a problem with Brad doing it, Brad has the right to spread his opinions on shit, and i'll just shrug it off like I would if some guy in real life was doing that in my face.
Hey, don't bash Colbert. He had good writers who made fun of the American media, not necessarily politics.
Political jokes (if they're not simply making fun of a certain belief) can sometimes work in TV shows, but they never work in movies, especially comedies.
This is so true, political comedies absolutely NEVER work in movies. Just look at the critically and commercially trashed comedies such as Wag the Dog, The American President, Dave, Election, Bulworth, The Candidate, Bob Roberts, etc.
Wag The Dog was good. But it mostly just made fun of America, it didn't really pull any one sided political jokes, at least none that I can remember.
This is why I stick with the Whig party.
Tory 4 lyfe!
Let's hear it for the break out star of this video -- a Midwest Thunderstorm! Wooo!
Some of you guys take this shit waaaay too seriously, ya dig?
We can dig it.
I knew this piece of shit was going to be bad. But on an unrelated note..i made a startling realization. Brad from the side you look almost identical to my dead brother.... It was weird.
I bet Brad and Dave's mind would blow up if i showed them my black friends wearing GOP t-shirts.
I can just imagine that funny look on their faces. a mixture of "wtf?" and "head shaking disappointment/astonishment."
anyway, side from that, im glad i went to see HTTYD2 again instead fo this crap. You can always tell a bad comedy because they're always shot and paced like adam sandler films.
flat lighting, pop culture schtick, shit humor, race humor, ect.
you know, shit only Mel Brooks was able to pull off.
Mel Brooks was a genius, he made the Get Smart series, do not diss his stuff. He also wrote Space Balls, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, and Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
Those are some of the best comedies ever written.
Also Brad is not a liberal reverse racist; the movie is. Just because the movie tried to use "White Republican" stereotypes and Brad helped convey the existence of the usage of sed stereotype to us (the audience) does not make him a liberal reverse racist, that makes the producers of "Think Like A Man Too" liberal reverse racists.
I'm not saying this comedy was good, it was bad, but you're description of why it's bad is consistent of stereotypes. Not all Adam Sandler comedies are bad; I liked "The Dictator", I did not like "Don't Mess With Zohan". If you're going to bash a person for using stupid stereotypes, don't use stupid stereotypes.
I think it's pretty hilarious how Dave has clearly never once held a conversation with either a black person or a republican. If he was ever stuck in a room with a black republican, he would probably have a stroke or something.
I'm pretty sure he's met many black people and many republicans.
Now please shut the fuck up, child.
You sure about that, Rhody? He strikes me as someone who lives in a bubble when it comes to political views.
He's in his 30's and he's an online film critic, a famous one at that.
I'm pretty sure he's met at least 50 black people, and at least 64 republicans.
That's exactly it, SBK. Everyone knows people that are way more into politics than everyone else. The kind of people who don't understand that it's possible to know and be friends with someone a long time and not know what their political opinions are because since they talk about politics all the time, they don't understand that it's something that rarely comes up in conversation for most people. The kind of people who are completely incapable of being friends with people whose political views are even slightly different than theirs (or just with people willing to shut their mouths and let the other person just go when they get started on a political rant). So yeah, Dave is absolutely the kind of person who lives in not only a political bubble, but a self-imposed one (aside: so if anyone ever wondered what Brad's or the rest of Team Snob's personal views on politics were, Dave's presence answers that for you).
Also, Dave seems to ascribe to a specific type of liberalism that is exclusive to white people.
Also, saying a "guy known as being friends with a guy who laughs when people call him famous" is famous may be pushing it a bit.
Hey guys, look up the word "joke" in the damn dictionary.
I've known Dave for 31 years, and he is not someone one who lives in a liberal bubble. Dave has family members who are conservative, I have family members who are conservative; we also all have friends who are conservative as well. Living in Springfield Illinois, it is impossible NOT to be friends or family members with someone of opposing politics.
The thing is though, and maybe it's just common around here and not everywhere else, but we all have something called SENSES OF HUMOR. We all joke about and have a laugh with each other about opposing views, and yes that involves playing with political stereotypes. My Republican uncle and I do that with each other all the time.
Just because we joke about black republicans does not equal "Brad and Dave don't think black republicans exists, derp de derp de derp!" Yeah, we know who Herman Cain is, we know who Alan Keyes is, hell, when I worked in radio we had a show HOSTED by a black republican.
This movie played with racial stereotypes, so we played with them right back; that's it. For the love of god, get the damn sticks out of your asses, you're acting like a bunch of humorless, stick up the butt, overly PC liberals ;)
Oh holy fuck... I just realized how much I derped!
I thought he was talking about Brad, but he said Dave. I thought we were all talking about Brad here. Well call me cheese and slap me with bacon I'm a fucking idiot.
Hey I realized you were joking, I was just trying to bash the movie.
These guys took it seriously.
Dude Brad you're the best, I love everything you've ever filmed and I watch your stuff every day. I was trying to defend you here, but I accidently awoke a bunch of sleeping liberal extremists. I'm so sorry :(
I'll try to be more careful in the future.
Don't beat yourself up dude, you weren't one of the ones I was talking to.
I'm a political independent because I hate political parties and the "sports fan"-style cheerleading that goes along with them. So really, my political affiliation is "I'm sick to death of politics."
I just finished college, and there was a girl there that hit all of my "annoying politics junkie" buttons. She was a friend-of-a-few-friends kind of situation, so only semi-unavoidable.
She was very clearly raised in a bubble (in regards to a lot of things, politics just being one of them) to the point that she didn't think conservatives/republicans were actual people. She talked about them like anyone else would talk about elves and centaurs and things like that. She had no concept or understanding that other people might think differently on political issues than she does. Expressing a moderate or an apathetic viewpoint would leave her completely baffled, and she would stare at you like you just declared that 2 + 2 = pancakes.
She once heard that a Catholic priest in town said something against abortion and got so angry that she cried and she wasn't even there (she also seemed surprised that a Catholic priest would be against abortion).
I once witnessed her scream in the face of a black guy that he was not being properly black or behaving like black people should and just needed to do what he was told because the guy had explained to a group of us that going into the election, he was kind of split on who to vote for, but decided to go with Mitt Romney, the deciding factor being something very specific about foreign policy. So it was an issue that had nothing to do with race or can be transposed onto race (there was also some "black people aren't allowed to have opinions on issues not related to race" going on in her screaming). This was three months after the election and we were in a state that's not even close to being a swing state, so the whole argument was very low-stakes as a political battle.
Across multiple videos, I've seen Dave say several things that are the kinds of things this girl would say, and a few statements were things she did say. You can see where my mind would draw some parallels.
mmm the difference is that it's a lot harder to take Dave seriously because he's a joker. You'll never see Dave crying over abortion arguments, and you'll never see him bitch and complain for the sake of convincing others: instead you'll hear him bitch and complain in order to express his opinion in a way that's supposed to entertain the audience.
I get your point, women do often cause us to see things the wrong way. And I can respect you for being man enough to admit your own mistakes.
I'm not trying to ride you any further Mr Photon, I'm just using your banter as an excuse to praise Dave and be openly sexist at the exact same time, nothing personal.
Yeah, Dave's a joker and he appears, from everything I've seen in these videos, to be a lovely person with strong opinions. It's just that sometimes, especially with comedy, one can have a tough time telling the difference between jokes and someone's legitimate thoughts(Poe's Law principle, in other words).
I know plenty of people who think that Stephen Colbert is a 100% accurate reflection of conservatives and our beliefs, and it can get a bit annoying at times to have someone suddenly turn cold toward you because you say so. My ex-gf, for example, is a fairly liberal girl, as is her entire family, and she cited our differences on certain issues to be a reason that she ended our relationship. Even though I made sure, whenever we discussed politics, to make it clear that I was perfectly fine with her not agreeing with me on absolutely everything. In fact, I enjoyed it.
But because of certain preconceived notions she had about me, it wound up being a factor in our relationship falling apart...
Well sounds like you at least have an excuse to not feel too bad about her dumping you, my ex girlfriend dumped me because I'm really boring.
Hey guys (not you Rhody), I think I know my best friend of 30 years better that you do, ok.
Here's a hint as to whether anyone is joking. Just repeat the concept of the joke in your head, like this: "Hmmm, I wonder if Dave LITERALLY thinks this group of guys are carrying the white guy around like he's a chain wallet because there are no black republicans? Wait a minute, that's really silly, almost like it's a joke! Bye George I think it is a joke!"
Yes, our personal politics tend to be pretty liberal, so some of our jokes may have a slant; but you know what, we've made jokes about race, sex, down syndrome, the holocaust, 9/11, dead celebrities, dead children, gay jokes, straight jokes, etc etc etc. I think you can deal. Not to mention, it was the movie that brought up this joke in the first place, we just ran with it.
Seriously, drop this shit, grow some skin, and stop flooding my board with this thin skinned politically correct nonsense. All you're doing is making us want to say more jokes like this so we can complete the quota on our thin skinned commenter punch card that get's us a free sandwich after 12. Sickbritkid, you're up to 10.
"Wait, does Brad LITERALLY have a punch card for thin skinned conservative comments that will reward him a free sandwich? Wait a minute, that's silly! Oh, you cad!" :P
I started watching your stuff back when you uploaded your first video to TGWTG. I was watching before the Midnight Screenings first started. I rarely comment in general (probably only ~10 times in all that time) and tend to make it a point to not make negative comments no matter where I'm at. The "black people are never friends with republicans" joke is something I've seen claimed seriously before (I wasn't there for it, but was told about the argument by the black liberal and white conservative who were best friends for years after the fact about getting told they weren't actually friends and the black guy walks around laughing at the white one behind his back (they were still furious about it, days later)).
I also mentioned how I'm really sick of politics right now, so irrelevant political jokes really annoy me. If the movie brings up politics or has political elements to it and vloggers/reviewers start making political jokes to expand on or counter what's in the movie, that doesn't bother me so much. Based on the description of the situation in this video it sounded to me like the movie was going with the usual "dorky white guy in a predominately black cast movie" trope and republican was being bolted onto the joke in the vlog (the way oversensitive white people try to force white jokes into becoming republican jokes). Based on your comments down here, Brad, it's starting to sound like the movie went with more of a *white guy enters scene* "Here comes the republican!" kind of direction. So I misinterpreted that from this video.
The combination of those things must've been what got me going earlier.
The way Dave presents himself in a lot of these videos has always kind of rubbed me the wrong way and he's the only one on this site I sort of have an issue with, so when I saw something here that reminded me of something else that allowed for a negative comparison to be made, I was quick to allow it. One of your buttons, Brad, seems to be people criticizing your friends, which I totally get. So I'll make a point to lay off Dave in the future.
Wow, I would hate to have to diagram some of those sentences in my last post.
Brad, if I actually ever reach that limit, I will BUY you the sandwich if you're ever in Dallas for a con(though I doubt any of them are big enough to warrant the trip). That is a promise, sir!
Dudes, we all get the point now! We get it! You guys are cool with Brad, but he rubs you the wrong way sometimes. I can understand that, I've understood that for the past 3 comments or so, you guys don't need to repeat yourselves.
Hey, i'll admit, I feel the same way about The Nostalgia Critic. He rubs me the wrong way sometimes. And I've left a TON of comments on the blues brother's episode expressing why he rubs me the wrong way, I get it, you're pissed off and you want to let everyone know, that's cool with me. But when the guy who owns the video tells you to just chill, you gotta chill bro!
No, one of my buttons isn't criticizing my friends, one of my buttons is being thin skinned about a joke. I have zero idea how you could have misinterpreted what we were saying because we spent about 5 minutes of the video talking about the white guy stereotype character in the film, and how the character said "ooo, I hope they're republican!!"
My friends can stick up for themselves, the only time I chime in is when it it gets carried away, is false, or when someone is claiming they know my friends better than I do based on a throwaway joke that isn't even close to being the most offensive on this show.
SickBritKid, TheFlyingPhoton, thanks for expressing your anger and frustration, but dudes, I think you guys ought to chill out now. I am tired of this disease of a conversation that has plagued itself within the comment section.
They were just commenting on a crappy joke in the movie, that they don't even agree with. They decided to make fun of it, and now there is all this political bullshit in the comments. Come on, why can't we all just joke about how bad the movie is? That's what I'm here for after all.
Huh? I've been chilled, dude. Hence why I made a humorous peace offering in the form of a sandwich should he ever be in Dallas in the future.
oh sorry I assumed you were being sarcastic.
You know what I just realized? Brad's first response was the [whatever you call this situation]-equivalent of, "I'm not racist. I have lots of black friends and THEY thought it was funny," kind of statement, lol (except it totally applies).
Photon, enough! Lets not start another comments shitstorm, man.
No shitstorm, argument, or criticism intended. Merely pointing out a comparison I found humorous.
Um. No. We were accused of not thinking that black republicans exist (which is ridiculous to accuse anyone of), so I named off a few, including one I worked with in radio, as well as one who ran for senate in Illinois, my own state, about 10 years ago; not to mentioning my defending my friend against people who think they know him better than I do.
Seriously. Drop it. Now.
Aaaaand...this pos is set to win the box office this weekend. Thanks America....thanks-o-fucking-lot.
Hate to say it, Doctah Jones, but it's #1 at the box office...
$30 million. Dear oh dear...
Guess we're getting a threequel!
I sincerely hope that HTTYD2 doesn't want up being a disappointment because of this piece of shit. 22 Jump Street, from what I've heard, is actually pretty damn good, but if HHTYD2 winds up dropping off despite being better than the first one...ugh.
Technically, HTTYD2 has made more than its budget, but the common rule of thumb in distinguishing flops and hits is whether or not the movie made back twice its budget. So far, HTTYD2 hasn't made back more than 30 million over its budget of 175, so it's looking like it'll be a disappointment domestically.
There's still hope, because KFP2 made back close to five times its budget and was a disappointment domestically, but a lot of that had to do with how damned popular it was in China, where the bulk of its international gross came from.
Ugh. I hope Dreamworks doesn't can the third movie.
DreamWorks screwed up with Shrek 3, I didn't even watch Shrek 4... I don't really want to either.
Shrek 2 was bad, Shrek 3 was awful.... I heard they got a little more creative with Shrek 4, but I'm not going to trust any of it. No sir, I'm done with Shrek, and I'm getting close to being done with DreamWorks.
Then again, I'd rather support their dumbasses than I'd support Disney... DreamWorks consists of a boardroom full of idiots, Disney consists of a boardroom of evil masterminds hell bent on destroying modern culture in any way they can; and they've succeeded.
I wouldn't be surprised if DreamWorks makes another bad choice in their next release.
I always thought the rule of thumb for deciding flop vs hit was that it's a hit if it made its budget back during opening weekend and it was a flop if it made its budget back the first Tuesday or later.
Whoa there, Rhody. Shrek 2 was the best of that entire series! Antonio Banderas as Cat Zorro made a lot of things about that movie(one of the reasons I really like the Puss in Boots movie as well).
Shrek 3 was shite, though, I'll give you that much. The only part I remember laughing was the scene where Prince Charming is rehearsing his play and killing the stand-ins for Shrek...
As for your response, Photon: The break-even point for a lot of films, IIRC, is generally making back twice its budget. Don't quote me on it, I'm not a studio exec, but I've seen it used several times as a rule of thumb on various sites, so I keep it in mind.
That said, if HTTYD2 stays in the top 5 for awhile, it'll probably make at least 200 million domestically, which should mean that the sequels will be safe in that regard.
Puss in Boots was a Grims Fairy Tale character before he appeared in Shrek 2, that's why I didn't find his character to be that entertaining. Sure he was cool in some scenes, but his presence seemed a little forced. They should have kept him out of Shrek 2 and just gave him his own movie.
The first Shrek movie was the only good movie of the Shrek series. Shrek 2 was watchable, but the whole fairy godmother plot was inexcusably bad and cheesy, ech, it's not something I would revisit.
You kidding me? Jennifer Saunders was one of the other great things about that movie!
As for Puss in Boots, sure he was a Grimm character prior to, but I seriously doubt he was essentially Zorro as a cat like he is in the Shrek films.
I loooove Shrek 2. That shit was the shit! I thought the movie was very funny with its referential humor, which is something I rarely say. I like Shrek 1 a lot too, and it's probably better, but I personally found Shrek 2 to be funnier.
And, uh, Puss in Boots did get his own movie. And I hear its better than Shrek 3.
It's not my favorite Dreamworks movie though. I like the "Kung Fu Panda" and the "How to Train Your Dragon" franchises better.
The Puss in Boots solo movie is pretty damn good. Yeah, it's not a high-quality film like HTTYD or KFP, but it's a fun and enjoyable adventure movie starring Zorro as a cat.
I love these episodes: I always eat popcorn while I watch them so I get that "just out of the theatre" atmosphere.
I fucking love this comment board. You guys are cracking me the fuck up. Listen... Quite frankly you don't know a damn thing about me as a person. And I'm good with that. In fact it's kind of by design. But if there's anything you want to know go ahead and ask. And if you're not a douchebag about it I'll go ahead and answer. Here are some basics to start you out: I know republicans. I'm friends with many of them. I've voted for republicans (gasp). I also know many many black people. And that includes the members of my family. I own firearms and firmly believe that people who cite the second amendment are usually fucking morons. I'm pro choice. I'm a supporter of lgbt rights. I have in fact kicked a puppy. I will say shit that riles people up because it amuses me ( see the puppy thing ). So please cut the self righteous bullshit. Learn to take a joke for what it is. And if there's still a problem you have with me either just don't watch the videos I'm in or keep your fucking bullshit to yourself.
I always sort of wanted to kick a puppy... just a hidden desire.
I agree with you, a lot of people need to learn to just take a joke.
I think I'll go on ahead and nut up in this regard: I apologize for being a dick, Dave. My panties got in a twist and I took you way too seriously in that regard. Photon made a good point earlier, but I really should have recited my MST3K mantra before commenting about some of the jokes you made.
So, yeah, I'm sorry about that.
ooo, it's Q&A time.
Hay Dave, when you make Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches, do you make them with the peanut butter on top or the jelly on top?
Jelly on top. But I'm more of a peanut butter and honey kind of guy.
When you put the slice of bread with the jelly on it on top, then you have the JELLY SIDE DOWN JELLY SIDE DOWN
You have black family members? Or Republican family members? Not both obviously, those don't exist.
Also, you spelled "Igbo" wrong. For someone who claims to have black acquaintances, you sound very ignorant right now.
Hay Dave, boxers or briefs?
This is why Dave is my (albeit Liberal) honky!
Looks like I'll have to be "that asshole who corrects Dave" for this video, but it seems a video with Dave in it isn't complete without one, so here we go:
Most, if not all, hotels in Las Vegas have a separate pool reserved for being topless. These usually have a fee for entry, even if you are a patron of the hotel. They're sectioned off too, so enterprising young teens won't be able to peek through a mere fence at a chance to score some free eye candy. (Besides, if they wanted to, they could take a leisurely through the Strip and have free "hooker catalogs" just handed to them, or picked up in the same kind of plastic booth one normally gets apartment/job finder papers in the less decadent parts of this country.)
Caesar's Palace specifically has five pools: Fortuna, Jupiter, Neptune, Temple and Venus. Venus is the topless pool. Venus also happens to be the pool to go if your into really expensive drinks and food. Women get in free, as is the case in damn near every club or club-like experience in Las Vegas.
See, some people can correct Dave's mistakes without being a *complete* shitlord.
Now, I haven't seen this movie, nor will I ever. So for all I know, they did have a shot that contained both topless guest AND children running around in the same pool. If so, then yeah, Dave is right in that it would never, ever happen.
Out of sheer curiosity, how do you know this? I'd rather hear your Vegas experience than watch this movie.
Can you upload this onto YouTube along with the other Midnight Screenings?
