Mombo zombo land not real? Just to their Tourist-site zombo.com where everything is possible.
*Cues up "Going Bananas" by Madonna and settles in*
Whether you're curious or you're a glutton for punishment, Going Bananas is available on Youtube for your viewing pleasure.
Yes, but does it sync up with Dark Side of the Moon?
5:53- At least he later went on to play much better roles, like Keenser in Star Trek.
10:02- Oh, you have got to be FUCKIN' KIDDING ME! This is Dunston Checks In all over again.
13:05- If I was drinking something at this moment, I would have dropped it while thinking "What in the holy mother of fuckin' bullshit!?"
14:57- And then the movie 127 Hours happens.
"Threatening a nun with a fuckin' gun." Ha, that rhymes.
Makes George of the Jungle look like Out of Africa!
I did rented Ed on VHS back in the day, but completely forgot about the movie!
Man, I gotta get Out of Africa!
I haven't seen Out of Africa, but I actually like George of the Jungle.
From that description alone, how have I not seen this movie?
"That was FUCKING PAINFUL!"
The legends were true. He's making the Cannon plunge.
Here's hoping he does Lifeforce... So someone can explain to me what the fuck happens in that movie...
It's pretty easy to understand, it's just like Species but much better and with soul sucking.
This is clearly one of the greatest movies ever made.
I sincerely request that the Cinema Snob also do Goin' Ape!, starring the legendary Tonya Danza. It is a masterpiece.
Do this means you will review more movies about monkeys in the future?
Thank you for this Snob. You've made my day
Could you review Exterminator 2 while you're on your Cannon binge? It's not as good as the first, but it's still worth owning for the phoned in plot of Mario van Peeples trying to take over New York (aka Canada).
There's a really cool documentary about Canon films called Electric Boogaloo: The wild untold story of Canon films.
By the way all racists know that Mazombo-zombo Land is on the border of Bongo-bongo Land and is ruled by Papa Doc Brian, a Kurtz-like former Slaver who went native for the love of Akimbo, the ebony Princess who bewitched him with the help of a powerful spell caster.
Dom Deluise, you were awesome in Mel Brooks movies, what happened?
Is...is that Slimer's voice? No wonder it's so fucking annoying
What about Cannonball Run?
He was also in Sextette, you know. Check out Diamanda Hagan's review of that unholy abomination sometime.
You would think when making a terrible ape movie, step one would be getting a real ape...
You know, the ONE redeeming quality of bad ape movies. The have apes in them that do tricks...
They tried but it reacted badly to the kid or something, So they went with the suite.
Chimps are pretty clever, but not as trainable or predictable as you would think. Plus they tend to get really dangerous as they get older. You can only work safely with a very young chimps. This is why they nearly always use men in suites or now CG.
There's an 80s thriller with Elizabeth Shue and Terrence Stamp called Link. It's about an intelligent but deadly chimp butler and for that they dyed an Orangutan black because a chimp of the right size and age would have been far too dangerous to work with. Their teeth are lethal and their arms are immensely strong. They also have really quick reactions and extraordinary visual spatial abilities.
I know they're dangerous, hard to train, and could turn on you at any moment. That's what makes it impressive. That's why the midnight screenings with Jake were so great...
He was basically a chimp they taught to review movies...
A suite is a connected series of rooms to be used together.
When I saw this pop up, I thought "hey, isn't that a good movie?" But then I realized I was thinking of 'Going Berserk.'
I'm seriously surprised anybody allowed this on their resume, particularly the people playing African characters.
I am aware that Africa is a really big place, but (as an African myself) none of this seems even remotely believable in any way. But then, people all over the world could pick that up.
I can't believe you never saw this before now. This is an 80's staple. On the shelf of every video store, probably between Meatballs and Transylvania 6-5000.
Technically, Meatballs is '79. Also Comedy Central used to play Meatballs... I think they'd lose whatever credibility they still have after Carlos Mencia shredded it if they showed Going Bananas.
Ah yes, if Meatballs was released in '79, then it couldn't possibly have been on video store shelves in the late 80's. What was I thinking.
The part I was challenging with my comment was the "80s staple" thing, and wasn't an attack on you. Are you always this defensive?
I'm not particularly defensive, nor do I think you attacked me personally. It's just that what you're saying doesn't make sense. The fact that Meatballs came out in 1979 in theaters still doesn't do anything to contradict the statement that a different movie is an 80's staple.
There was show in 1972 called "Me And The Chimp", so named because the lead actor Ted Bessel didnt want a primate to have it's name before his. How incredibly petty. And one book about bad television had this to say about it: "Actors are happier when they're working than when they're not, which is why they sometimes say yes to television shows that damage their sense of self-worth." And that's just what happened to that guy. The show was cancelled in less than three months and his career never really recovered from being associated with this chimpfest. Too bad, huh? Just thought I'd mention it here.
While I'm sure (at least I hope) he was and is a nice enough person in, well, person, was or is there a better actor at playing the hatable kid than the kid in this movie?
Damn it! Will someone stop Matthew Broderick from teaching chimps to fly already! It wasn't funny the first time.
Now if the monkey was a sidekick to Dennis Hopper and it can wield a chainsaw than I'd be singing a different tune. As it stands this is one of the worst horror films I've ever seen. Still not as retarded as Hardcore Henry of course. Nothing is as cheap and lazy as that piece of shit.
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
