Brian and Dave's Midnight Screening review really doesn't do this turd justice...wow. I mean, I roughly knew what to expect, but it just doesn't prepare you.
I didn't think the snob's review was THAT awful.
Oh, this is gonna be glorious :D
This will be HMS Glorious levels of glorious! <O
In which form? Battlecruiser or aircraft carrier? Actually, it's the Snob ripping a Madea movie a new one - it's both at once!
Holy fuck, suddenly Joe Don Baker's sex scene in Mitchell actually...almost looks sexy. God, my eyes; is it Fat Grandma season yet!? I need that image out of my head!
"Cunty McMomface" was an understatement, for that character...
Guessing between this and Saving Christmas, we're getting Winter's Tale soon.
I'm so damn excited.
Dave finally got his revenge.
Dave & Brian's sound is out of sync. Still better edited than the movie.
Looks like Brad did a little editing on that without taking down the video! That's Lionsgate's job I'm afraid!
Why do I want to watch Nukie now? Damn you Madea Saves Christmas
What next, are you gonna review The Smurfs?
Can you do Oogieloves sometime in January? :3
Seems appropriate since you'll likely watch Norm of the North.
I say for the next one Brad should recreate the saucer sled scene from Christmas Vacation with Fat Grandma as Cousin Eddie
Alicia Witt? Oh, God, let's pass the hat, and get her out of these fucking movies!
She's got Twin Peaks to look forward to. She'll be fine
Just what I need after a bad morning. Thanks!
As a native Nebraska who moved to Alabama when Larry the Cable Guy was huge (you couldn't find a truck that didn't have a Git-R-Done sticker) People thought I was full of shit when I said Larry was from Nebraska. In fact I remember him doing radio in Omaha without the Git-R-Done southern accent shtick.I liked the "You're from Nebraska line"
We learned the Nativity story when I went to public school in the 80s. I guess you mean nowadays, aka the PC(Pussified Country) days.
Sick burn dude! Yeah, keeping religion out of school. What a bunch of pussies we are.
I was forced to see this movie with my family. I admit I don't see many movies, but this is still the worst movie I have seen in theaters.
What, no Turkish Debbie Does Dallas?
Wow, I knew this was going to be bad but actually seeing it was a trip.
I swear at first I thought Brian said 'slaves' not 'sleeves'.
well, it is Brian after all.
"...witness protection and jail" would've sounded better with more emphasis on jaaail
To quote Nash, "Fuck you, jail!"
wait, why at the end it's Brian voice coming out from Dave like bad ADR? Was this movie so bad that it even started to fuck-up the snob's review?!?!?!
Miss the days when blaxploitation was funny, not just plain mediocre. Hell! Calling Perry's flicks blaxploitation it's an insult to blaxploitation itself!
I'd just watch Friday After Next for my holiday Blaxpolitation fix.
Oh yeah, I knew what Brad was in for the moment I saw it was Madea movie. I'm kind of a weird expert on these films, and many of the things Brad complains about in this review are common themes throughout all of them.
- Serious tonal whiplash with scenes of Madea being wacky mixed with dramatic subplots
- Characters generally being horrible but wanting to change by the end of the movie. These plots never really feel "insincere" but more or less "ineffective" because it comes off like the characters genuinely want to change but it always feels very sudden and there's little motivation.
- Madea being a terrible person (completely intentional) but suddenly becoming the voice of reason when needed.
But this entry is unique in terms of Madea films because it has like twenty fucking subplots.
So I guess we're getting Old Fashioned soon?
Out of all the movies that Brad would watch twice, I don't think that would be one of them.
The Identical is a better bet and I would be so down for Snob tackling Christian Elvis
I thank you for your holiday cheer and reviews(even when I don't agree with you I still understand). You bring a great smile to me every time I see a video.
God bless you!
Are you finally doing the long-awaited Midnight Screenings/Cinema Snob crossovers?! It's a non-specific Winter Solstice celebration miracle!
No Fat Grandma? Boo 0 stars.
Thank you, Brad. By your selfless sacrifice of reviewing a Medea movie, you have done an immense public service to humanity. You deserve the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Gad, this movie featured Lisa Welchel, one of the Christian "do-gooders." And this movie was rate PG-13?? Wow, you had Kirk Cameron, Miss Velma, and Lisa Welchel on consecutive week. Who's next, Tammy Faye Baker-Messner?
I honestly had no idea that was her until commenters pointed it out.
Thank Dave and Brian who also suffered through watching Madea movies before Brad did. Give them the Presidential Medal of Freedom too.
So Madea is a hateful and unlikeable tyrant whose only good quality is that she crushes even worse tyrants. So...basically Madea is Stalin?
If Madea is Stalin then Cunty McMomface is Hitler Trump.
Woooow so where those scenes that were out of order part of the movie's editing ? cause wooow...also...i....uh wow
I love ron white!! XD
Another suggestion, this time for a double shot.
Streets of Fire and the sequel Road To Hell directed by one Albert Pyun.
Loving the santa suit with the Snob jacket!
Why doesn't some enterprising youth give the world what it NEEDS:
Edit together an Ernest and Medea movie into one cinematic feature!
And it was great seeing Blair!
I hope we get a snob review of The Identical in the future.
I hate saying this coz I know Tyler Perry and his Medea stuff is critic and credibility slaying poison. But actually didn't think it looked that bad so after the review I watched it. And I kind of enjoyed it.
I think the Medea character is supposed to be a monster.
That scene where Madea is running from the Klan... was that a banjo riff on the Benny Hill theme playing?
I don't get the whole "Madea" character. Not just content-wise - a total "do as I say, not as I do" hypocrite is supposed to teach me "good Christian values"? Fuck off! No, I just can't get over the visual. An overweight 6' 5'' version of Steve Urkel in a bad wig and whatever women's clothes Tyler Perry Studios could find for a buck that a man of this size can actually squeeze himself into? "Madea" looks like a really lame parody of a bad crossdresser who has no idea what he's doing. Dennis Rodman in a wedding dress looked more believable as a woman than Tyler Perry.
Don't you just love the size ratios in this movie? An "old black woman" is the tallest, most physically imposing person in a redneck farm town and the classroom of the school is smaller than the teacher's living room...
What really freaks me out are the people who not only defend the character, but celebrate it. You know, obscure whack jobs like Oprah Winfrey, who said it was a positive representation of all the "Strong black women" who raised Tyler Perry. Someone who interprets a verbally abusive, physically abusive, casually felonious, callous, thuggish, racially stereotypical drag act as a role model should not be one of the most influential figures in the media world.
In Britain, this would be seen as a panto grand dame and there's this Irish comedy show call Mrs Brown or something and Mrs Brown is played by a man and is simultaneously a monster, the heroine and moral centre of the show. There isn't the overt Christianity of Tyler Perry, but it's not a dissimilar set up of lowbrow comedy mingling with family values and also has a very loyal following, whilst not really appealing to critics or hip people. I think the appeal of Medea is that it's old fashioned, a little like Lifetime family movies and has the odd spattering of amusing moments. Even Cinema Snob was amused by a couple of the jokes. To me it's sort similar too those old hillbilly movies with grandpa in a tin bath and women threatening their kin with rolling pins or whatever. They're horrible, but at least they aren't fancy intellectuals and they do stick together.
When I was in elementary school, any parent/person could volunteer to be a sub aka babysitter. No training or background check necessary.
When Brian said "sleeves" I thought for a second he said "slaves". Wouldn't be a surprise, but he's usually not so open about his past.
I think he's subconscious spreading his slaver mentality this way. He says "sleeves" all happily, but in a way where it kinda sounds like slaves...putting in our heads that slavery is a happy thing for everyone. Pretty sneaky Brian...
Papa Brian, is a God-fearing righteous preacher man. His slaving days are behind him now, so don't be making no idle chit chat cuz he travels the Mid West doing the Lord's bidding with a bible in one hand a pistol in the other.
I'd watch that show... until they get desperate in the last few seasons, and give him a head injury that mekes him think he's a mascot for a brand of crackers.
I've been saying this for years. Brad needs to start a Kickstarter for Slaver Brian: Duke of the South. Cast Brian as an ex-slaver turned bounty hunter called the White Saviour, Irving as his black sidekick searching for his slave family, Dave as a Baptist pastor which a past of substance (and slave) abuse, and Sarah as a southern belle with torn between her black lover and her white brother.
Brad's going to have to review Samurai Cop 2 when it comes out on Blu-Ray/DVD. Featuring Tommy Wiseau baby. And Matt Hannon returning in his famous role.
Until then, please watch Friday After Next instead of this movie.
Thank you, Snob. Ever since the South Park episode "Funnybot" where they poked fun of Madea, I've wondered if he/she's THAT F*CKING ANNOYING or were Matt & Trey exaggerating a bit. . . now I know, & knowing is half the battle (the other half is voluntarily watching this).
Four or five sort of funny things spread out over an hour and forty five minutes. In a comedy film that's practically torture. I get the feeling that Madea being a giant hypocrite is supposed to be the joke, but the problem is that it's not funny. That looks like so much of this movie. "That's the joke" "Well it's not funny"
Took me awhile to remember why this looked TOO familiar; I recall seeing this on "The Good Hook" as well. Ah, why'd I have to remember that?
Fortunately I finally gave myself a chance to watch "Fiddler on the Roof" tonight, so I can drown out the experience with pleasant memories of Topol dancing his heart out.
Not surprising, this movie turned out better than the "I'm Lewis Lovehog and I'm the messiah! Suck my dick and fuck me in the ass!" movie.
No, because at least that film was an internet movie, and not a piece of anal trash released in theaters.
GOD. Tyler Perry is such a horrible director. I hate it that he's the most popular black film writer....His characters feel worse than seeing actual white people in black face. I hate his influence he's had on the black community the past decade and when his writing gets praised.
Speaking as a black woman, Tyler Perry is total garbage at movies and doesn't know how to write any ethnic character without going into stereotypes.
I love that Brad did this; a Snob episode on the movie that both Dave and Brian called the Worst of 2013.
Now I'm hoping for a future Snob episode on the Perry movie that Brad did a Midnight Screening of; Single Mom's Club.
On an unrelated note, I recently saw a movie which I think would be really damn good for a Snob episode (don't know if Brad's seen it already):
It's a German animated film with cats as characters.
It's also neo-noir, horror-thriller, murder mystery, and for adults only.
There's blood, gore, vulgarity, human nudity and some really horrific imagery in it.
What does this movie affirm? Something about racism? Corporations? Religion? Education? Anything at all? Did that guy have some sort of ability or reason to prevent that other guy from growing corn that I missed? Is Madea like a Cartman-esque character? And if so, shouldn't she be older with perhaps a hint of senility, so that her cuntiness gets a pass (or is that what Tyler Perry is going for, but it's not coming across)?
Well, I never thought he'd say it out loud- but I must admit I'm not surprised. In this review Brad (founder of Springfield's chapter of Combat 18, secret published of Klassen's 'Nature's Eternal Religion', and devout worshiper of Big Ears the Irish demon-faery cat summoned by his sick followers in the ritualistic blood-orgy of Taghairm) openly declares he'd rather watch demented Nazi snuff flicks than wholesome Christian family films just because they contain BLACK characters.
Brad, when are you going to GROW UP??
Do the "Star Wars Holiday Special".
I dare you.
I double dare you!!!
"Madea just said something funny."
She didn't Brad, she really didn't.
To be playing a woman, Tyler Perry surely doesn't get women. Seriously, the lady needing lingerie wasn't being slutty. She probably just needed a new bra. Have you seen an older woman braless? Just go to Wal-Mart any day of the week! Barf...
That audience score just proves we NEED to get rid of the least 70% of the population.
That nigga can't act for shit. Wearing drag while sounding like black man got old like 1930's
This movie is so irritating that even watching the review is too much. Normally Brad's reviews are awesome even through the most terrible of films. But for some reason this..irriating..pile..of clusterfuck shit is just too much. Maybe cos it's mainstream IDK. Either way, thanks Brad for being the only enjoyable part of this mess.
