I guess I’m not done doing these types of reviews. Not yet. Maybe not ever, unless my liver gets fucked up somehow.
I’m in the mood for some 80s sword and sorcery flicks. But not the ones that are in the top 5 that hold the highest standard for the rest. Those would be Conan: The Barbarian, The Beastmaster, The Sword and the Sorcerer, Deathstalker, and Red Sonja (I honestly haven’t seen that last one; I tried once, but couldn’t get into it). No, not those ones. I’m talking about the more lower tier flicks, that look like they have a backyard budget and are always shot on location, in a forest. And the only thing they really have going for them aside from the genre are the hot chicks willing to show their skin.
I have seen a couple of these that actually aren’t half bad. But most of them are pretty fucking terrible. Let’s see where this one falls.
Not sure how I feel about the soundtrack so far. Sounded bad at first, then it got a bit better the longer it went. Foreshadowing of this film being a mixed bag?
Executive producer Roger Corman. Whoah boy, we’re in for it now.
Weird editing choices with the women warriors practicing their staff swinging. “Huh! Hyah! He! Hye!” I swear, some of the shouting gets cut-off mid-shout. Almost sounds like what you would hear playing a 16-bit videogame. They should’ve made a sword and sorcery side-scroll beat-em-up done in thee same vane as Streets of Rage. Oh wait, they did, Golden Axe. Well, I want an all-female scantily clad version damnit!
There’s an evil king named King Kaloomba? What the fuck? Well in that case, I wanna know where King Koopa is! I mean, I could be mishearing this, maybe it’s King Kalunga or something, not that it doesn’t sound any less ridiculous.
The lighting hand effects. I gotta make a meme-gif out of that.
Phahah! The sounds they make during this battle scene! I swear, some guys are yelling, “Get out of here!” to the enemy.
I love how these women try to act badass, yet some falling rocks make them react like an elephant seeing a mouse. It’s actually kind of adorable.
The soldiers talking to their king after they got beaten up by the Amazons, “[The Amazon women] fought like demons!” Heheh.
And yeah yeah yeah, the typical, “There is no mercy for failure” speech.
Ok, as much as I like some of the cheesiness, I’m not really getting into this movie. I don’t give a shit about the plot, I’m not spending enough time with any of the characters to give a shit about any of them.
Hah! How they are so casual with how they practice with their spears (or whatever you call those weapons). As in not putting much effort into it.
Oh yeah, and just like that they know where to look for this long lost sword no one’s been able to find. Because of some vague vision that doesn’t give any details. Whatever.
Maybe his name is Kolungo. I don’t know, their pronunciation of his fucking name seems to change every time they say it. Goddamnit, now I’m too curious about the name. What the fuck does IMDB say about its spelling?
According to IMDB, it’s spelled Kalungo. I don’t know if it’s the booze or that most people in this film don’t know how to pronounce the fucking name. Then again, it’s not like they knew how to be consistent with pronunciation during that time period. It’s not like they had dictionaries, or the Internet, let alone books. Well ok, maybe the did have books, but fuck if they knew how to read them.
Hah! A white female James Earl Jones!
They stare at each other like they’re about to have an arm wrestling competition. “You want me to do what?” “Kill her!” Fuck that! I wanna see these chicks arm wrestle each other!
Ohhh, I see. This one blonde chick (amongst all the other blonde chicks who look so similar I have a hard time telling them apart; and that’s probably the first time I’ve ever said that about a group of people who were white) has a fake metal hand, or something. Apparently they were so advanced about replacing sliced off hands back then, that they could muster some finger movement while they were worn.
“I raised you as a tool Tashi. An instrument of vengeance. I never loved your father. And I never meant to love you. But I do. Are you my daughter or aren’t you?”
Well, that’s a nice inspiring family speech. 18 minutes in and we finally get some character development and some protagonists (kind of) to get attached to. Plus some motives about wanting to kill a woman who is a part of their tribe for vengeance. Not sure why she didn’t try this at an earlier time, especially considering it sounds like this mother has been holding this grudge since before her daughter was born (it makes less sense the more I think about it)… You know what, fuck it. I’m supposed to be drunk enough to not think about this shit. Hang on, I need to chug a few more shots.
Ok, back to the movie. Horses.
“It’s time to ride, not talk.”
Oh how I would love that to be a line used in a sexual way. “Stop talking, start riding me!” Or, “Stop talking and let me mount and ride you! Maybe not in that order!”
Huh. Interesting plot twist that I might care more about if I knew this character (or her daughter) better. The mother being in league with the evil King Doodoopudu or whatever the fuck his name is.
Whoah! What the fuck was with the lion montage? And with lion masks that looked fucking weird on these people? That came out of the blue.
Oh wait, no it didn’t. It was supposed to show the lion in his room turning into a human female. Who is naked. Alright! Our first nude scene of the Sword & Sorcery flick! How long until there’s more?
Jesus Christ! Apparently the two lead actresses were so jealous of lion lady’s good looks that they decide to not only bare their breasts and asses int he next scene, but to swim in the water too. Phahahah! Are they condensing the mandatory female nudity requirement at this point in the movie? It’s shameless enough to seem so.
And they fight the pervs who were looking in on them and trying to pierce them with their swords. Oh shit, but the men best them, and strip them, and try to rape them. And then lion lady saves them, in lion form. On top of that, we get what will probably be the best moment in the movie when a topless chick kicks the shit out of a perv and kills him (I think, based on that hilarious groan sound he makes).
Why the fuck are these villains so keen on having these protagonists get the sword that can kill them? Am I the only one who thinks this is fucking ridiculous? Ah whatever, titties.
Hah! Ok, this has gotta be it. The most hilarious part of the movie. When she’s wrestling with this snake, and overacting in how it’s strangling her. Pretending that this isn’t a friendly domesticated snake.
Whoop, more tits to show. And it seems more pointless than last time, and that shouldn’t be possible.
What the fuck!? What the hell is up with this movie? Every time some girl flashes her tits there’s pervs in the bushes waiting to ambush them, and then do exactly that? You’re not supposed to be representing people like me who are watching this movie, let alone showing them getting their asses kicked!
“I will only let someone stand by my side who is strong. Like you. And who will let me fondle her tits.”
I made that last sentence up, but seriously, that’s exactly what he does when he says that. You know, I seriously misjudged this movie. For the first 20 minutes, I thought the women were going to dress only slightly scantily, and remain that way throughout the rest of the film. I only thought that because I’ve seen films like that. I don’t know, maybe I’m too used to seeing modern shit films that frown upon this sort of thing. Glad to have misjudged this.
Speaking of which, now we get a sex scene. And not just any kind of sex scene, oh no. This has got to be the most unique sex scene in the history of film-making. The main villain antagonists are the ones who have sex with each other. And we see it in all its softcore porn glory. Seriously, when the fuck has that ever happened? When have we ever gotten a movie where we see the villains go at it. Never! You know why? Because it makes me want to root for the antagonists! You know what that means? If the protagonists get into a hardcore lesbian sex scene where they scissor each other and moan. Then again, Roger Corman may have a thing against lesbians. I doubt it though, considering that weird shower/sparkle/massage scene in Forbidden World (1982).
Alright, after seeing this slave prison cell caravan thing with a topless chick in it, I’m convinced this film is going overboard with the nudity. Yes, it took me this long to realize this.
Ok, how far am I into this 76 minute movie? Only 38 minutes?! Fuck me, I need to ease up on the comments.
Alright, now I’m getting bored with the tits. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but this movie needs to ease up.
Fuck these guys! I don’t care who they are, or what their reasons. When they indiscriminately start sacrificing hot topless chicks by knifing them, they become permanent villains in my eyes. Someone kill these fuckers!
Whoop de doo, a rescue from people who sacrifice hot chicks to a tree.
“With the sword I can conquer even the Where-Ways.” Yeah, you can conquer wherever.
Hey, 3 minutes have passed without nudity being show. Guess things are getting interesting again.
If this horse turns into a man, I swear to God, I’m going to start watching spaghetti western flicks again.
The sword of Azandaddy. Who’s you’re daddy? Azan is your daddy.
“Three will enter, one will leave.”
Fuck you, and your Mad Max wannabe rip-off dialogue!
I’m bored. Can we get a lesbian sex scene yet? Preferably one that involved more than just kissing?
These two women are so desperate to find a sword. I take it back, we don’t need a lesbian sex scene. We need one or two guys capable of pleasuring both these women.
“Hell? Hell will be my greatest conquest. Then I’ll be in Heaven.”
Ok, I have to admit, that’s a badass line.
You know, a crossing across the rope over a cliff scene isn’t all that tense when you keep showing the river below them. Because, you know, in 80s flicks like these, water seems to break their fall just fine regardless of height. You want to give us tension, make it a pit full of spikes or snakes or rapists or something.
The third who will enter is a literal lioness. At this point, I’d be up for that kind of beastiality.
Friendship. Didn’t see that coming. Give me a hug.
What the flying fuck!? This lioness chick can throw a knife to kill a bitch and then instantly transfer back into a lion before the body hits the floor? And start a woman vs. lioness wrestling match?
I’m convinced the lioness should’ve kicked this chick’s ass.
No tits being shown over a span of 10 minutes. It’s like there’s a bell curve with this flick in terms of nudity. Appropriate.
Morons. They should’ve been charging the palace/fortress/set/whatever the fuck it’s supposed to be during the first sorcerer lighting bit.
Where-ways again. Or We’re-Ways. “It’s the only way.” Balgor, folklore, butt-whore, whatever.
Flashing white light. We gonna get a dance floor scene? No? Then fuck off with that shit.
Hah! Ghost attack!
I fucking hate getting the fucking hiccups when I’m fucking drunk! Or at anytime regardless of my state! Fuck hiccups!
Did she just fucking kill that guy by hitting him with the hilt of her sword while he was behind her on horseback? That’s stupid.
“You cannot defeat me! I have the power!”
Fuck you. He-Man has the power!
She shouts, “Where are you!?”, and then a horse sticks its ass into the frame. There’s a joke in there somewhere.
This final fight between the Amazon chick and the evil King Koopahka is kinda lame. Until they resort to this very weird edit trick that’s beyond words of describing. I would’ve preferred they just sped up everything, but whatever.
And the protagonist decided to try overacting.
I’d like to know about the guy with the mustache.
“Someone is killing my tree!”
Can’t say I’ve heard that line before.
Ok, this final final fight scene is also kinda lame.
What the fuck!? PHAHAHAHAHAH! Oh my God! That’s got to be one of the most hilarious death scenes in my life. The bitch villain accidentally kills herself by chopping down a tree which then falls onto her. You can’t make this shit up.
This bitch that died in the cave came back to life? Alright, fuck this movie and the assholes who decided to give it a happy ending. Especially when they did that without having the decency to give us a lesbian sex scene. You know what? Just because of that shit, I’ve decided how I’m going to score this movie.
Rated: 1 / 5
Fuck this movie and it’s contrived happy ending. I don’t care how much tit service it decided to give, among all the other so-bad-it’s-good shit. That ending pissed me off!
The whole film is designed to be a feminine knee to the groin to us men who still have a pair of balls. From pre-production to post-production to the film’s release and post-release, the cast and production company, plus various half-assed review sites, have done nothing but taunt us. And speaking of taunting us and having half an ass, Brie Larson fits that description perfectly. She wants less white men around about as much as she wants to have less of an ass. Her and everyone else involved are completely aware of the fact that men love asses they can bounce a quarter off of, so what better way to put the joke on us by providing a lead with an ass where that’s physically impossible. In fact, her ass defies the laws of physics. It’s not only an ass incapable of bouncing, it does the opposite. So if some poor schmuk decides he’s lucky enough to get laid by her, when he tries to penetrate/pound that ass hard enough to prove that it’s bounce-able, he will instead get sucked right into it, and then get shit out from the front end.
And he won’t survive the ordeal because her pussy will fuck you up. Her pussy shreds her underwear to the point that it’s in style like it was at Victoria’s Secret. So don’t believe Scarface what Scarface says. When a cop points to the scar on his face and asks, “Where’d you get the beauty scar tough guy? Eating pussy?” The answer should most definitely be yes. Samuel Jackson had to find that out the hard way, except the pussy ended up shredding his eye out rather than his cheek. Not to mention her pussy has a void all its own as well, that’s why tentacles and shit come out of it. That pussy spent too much time in Japan, maybe even too much time around Takashi Miike; it will also want to rape guys with those things so that they know how it feels.
But, of course, what makes a superhero special isn’t necessarily the powers they have gained or were given. It’s not necessarily the skills they’ve acquired. It’s not necessarily the experience they have. Hell no. It’s about what sex they are, or what sex they decide to define themselves as, and what sex they want to have sex with. Because that’s an achievement based on merit which makes the world proud to view them as a savior. Consider what would be so special about a gay guy, and what would make his merits stand out on his resume.
“‘We are proud of our gay son.’ I so I was saying, ‘That’s an odd thing to be proud of.’ Because, it’s not an achievement, you know. It’s not something you work all your life to be gay or anything like that. […] These 50-60 year old men are actually bragging at work like, ‘Hey Bill, uh, my kid, we’re proud of him, Johnny. He had graduated from Harvard, first in his class. Now he’s articling over at Harvard law firm and uh… oh and he loves cock! He can’t get enough cock in his mouth, his ass. I got a picture of the boy here sucking another man’s cock that I wanna show you.'”
It’s the same case with women. It doesn’t matter their merits, it just matters that they’re their. And if they love pussy, all the better, it will make them fit in with the men. Next thing you know being in shape won’t be a requirement either, because we can’t shame the fat-asses from joining, especially those Latina chicks. We gotta get them early before their ass fat spreads to the rest of their body. We need an army build on diversity damnit! Merit doesn’t matter anymore!
“So, are you finished?”
Nope, I’m just getting started baby. All those rant paragraphs before are just me getting warmed up before I tackle this movie. And I’m not going to tackle this one sober. Time to get all fucked up.
“Wait, so you’re going to get blasted at a movie theater?”
While that is certainly a possibility, there are 2 problems with that.
1.) The alcoholic beverages are more overpriced at the theaters that sell them than they are at a fucking bar.
2.) I’d rather not give Disney my fucking money for this film, especially when both those working within the company, and the stars of Marvel films in general, tend to hate people like me; even when we’re being reasonable. So if they’re not going to be reasonable with me, then I’m not going to be reasonable with them.
So if I’m not going to pay for it via some streaming service or at a theater, then what am I going to do?
“Thar she blows maytee! And she is blowin’ hard! Hand me a battle of the Caribbean Rum Jim, I’m going to need it before tackling this mighty beast. After we’re done, the drinks are on me and we’ll go chasing wenches in circle like we used to be able to do at some fantasy place in Disneyland.”
Rated: I’ll tell you later

So, the tribute to Stan Lee is nice. Something they should absolutely do again for Endgame. You know, to provide a proper closing. To mark the end of an age. To remind us all of the good times Marvel used to have. Especially since he probably died of a heart attack after watching this movie and seeing how much his legacy has been, and is going to be, desecrated.
Speaking of which, looks like the fucking apocalypse is already upon us. The film opens with darkness and ash and explosions and rubble flying all over the place. The feminists have won and are taking over. We need fucking Jean Luc Picard to travel back in time with the Enterprise again to stop all this. Back to the 90s, quick, before Michael J. Fox develops Parkinson’s!
She has blue blood on her hands. Oh my God, she killed the Smurfs. Huh. Maybe I’m going to enjoy this movie after all.
Oh, it was just a dream. Hopefully that nightmare will never come to pass.
Capital of the Kree civilization. Normally I’d say this doesn’t look half bad, except that every futuristic planet, whether human or alien, has been looking the same ever since Blade Runner. The only difference is whether they want to shoot it in the daytime or at night.
Kree sounds nice. It’s one letter away from being “free.” Just like “Hero” is one later away from being “Her,” which is also one letter away from being “He.” Muahahahah! You ladies can’t escape from us lads! You’ll always be building off of our backs!
“Do you know what times it is?”
It’s the fucking daytime! Well, then again, maybe this is more like Alaska. It’s an alien planet. For all we know, it has 2 suns, maybe 3. Doesn’t seem to have stopped this “alien” planet from being populated with humans apparently.
Careful lady. We all know how that turned out when Ryan Gosling asked that question (in the film that Stranger Things totally didn’t steal the music from).
In all fairness, the fight scene wasn’t half bad. Showcasing how, uh, screw it, I’m just going to call her Brie for now. Showcasing how Brie isn’t at the top of her game yet because she gets too emotional at times. You know, like how people are going to get triggered at this review. “I can’t beat him fairly. Unleash superpower weapon, haaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!” Superpower being bitch and moan and whine and cry until moderators/corporations/politicians/authority gives them what they want. Speaking of which, guess she has to go see “Supreme Intelligence.” Which means she’ll have to go to puppet land and talk to Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
“What is the point of giving me *these* [gesturing her fists] if you don’t want me to use them.”
Try asking Bruce Lee about the art of fighting without fighting.
“Stop using *this* [points at the heart] and start using *this* [points to the head]. I want you to be the best version of yourself.”
I like this guy. He has great advice for mental focus in fighting. Here’s hoping he doesn’t turn into the villain later.
So the “Supreme Intelligence” can take any form, and takes for for each person who meets Supreme Intelligence (Jesus Christ, can’t they give it a name with fewer fucking syllables?). And it takes the form of a woman in her 60s. Her message is going to be, “So kids, vote for Democrats and people like Hillary during the next election season. If men give you shit, protest by rubbing period blood on your face and running around naked and shouting. Because no man in the world will want to fuck with you ever again once you start doing that. And they will so take you seriously.”
“It’s all blank. My life.”
And your face.
“Put your people’s needs before your own. We’ve given you a great gift. […] Master yourself. What was given can be easily taken away.”
Ok, this is setting up for something. Either Brie is going to go berserk and force them to take the power away from her (ala Thor), or the Kree and Supreme Intelligence (I’m just going to call it SI, and don’t fucking confuse that with the Spanish language!) are going to turn out to be the bad guys (like “The Dude” in Iron Man).
Hey! It’s Korath! That one guy no one really gives a shit about from Guardians of the Galaxy! Can’t wait to hear his backstory that no one cares about.
Ok, I have to admit. So far, despite my petty bitching, the first 8 minutes actually isn’t all that bad. I’m just taking bets for how long it will take before the movie fucks it all up.
Wait. So your going in to locate your spy, and then leave? What, no exchange of information? No rescue operation? Or are they just leaving out that bit of information? Eh, screw it. I’ll just wait and see what happens.
“Nothing compromises the security of this mission,” he says while looking at Brie. Jee, I wonder if she’s going to compromise the security of the mission.
Hexagon shields. You know, if they were really that advanced, they’d be using triangle shields.
Phahahahahah! Hahahahahah! Ok, I heard they were doing callbacks to the 90s with this film. But a fucking mohawk for their hair/helmet/armor style? Seriously? You haven’t even time traveled yet! Then again, maybe this is their way of saying the 80s and 90s had awesome hair styles. To which I will say… you’re goddamn right they did!
Ooooooooooh. The enemy can shape-shift. And here I started thinking they were just being portrayed as being misunderstood beings who want peace.
Great. Brie thinks she’s ready for the military; next thing you know, she gets taken out and captured.
Whoop. Timeline jump! Now we’re on Earth. Guess the aliens are starting to brainwash her. They must be brainwashing her, because she walking all proud and smug and full of herself while in uniform. You’re in an Army uniform (or Airforce, whatever), not in an MMA outfit. If you want to act as smug as Ronda Rousey, at least do that much.
“Where’s your head at?”
“In the clouds. Where’s yours?”
Though all jokes aside, let us take a moment of silence for the air force pilot/consultant who gave the cast and crew pointers about real-life F-16 pilots/fighters, and then died in an F-16 crash. Normally I’d say “Semper-fi,” but that’s a marine thing. Guess I’ll go with, “Aces High.”
“Gotta show these boys how we do it.”
… I’ll let that slide. Just fun banter between the girls.
Holy shit! She’s going to fly and crash into a circus tent!
Wait, what? A flashback within a flashback? Ok, you know what? Fuck you movie.
“You’re going too fast! You need to go slow!”
Says the “boy.” Oh God. I’m sensing a pattern here. A fighting instructor who tells her to keep her emotions in check. An “intelligence” telling her to more or less do the same. And some random kid in a race cart telling her not to push herself. There’s 2 possibilities, though just bringing this up is completely fucking rhetorical, especially when considering we’re dealing with a Disney flick. Either she really is outta control and too much of a daredevil for her own good and needs to reign herself in (getting captured by the aliens seems to indicate as much), or the men and the boys are holding her back too much, and she needs to let loose and show them how it’s done. Because having a bit of restraint is always a bad thing. Says the guy who’s making a drunken rant about a movie with alleged feminist propaganda.
And then she crashes and burns and dies!!!! Ahahahahahah! Ok, I take it back. I think this movie is leaning towards the former.
“What the hell are you thinkin’? You don’t belong out here!”
— Brie’s dad?
Another timeline transition to army camp, where she’s climbed atop a rope and intends to jump to the next rope.
*guy laughter* “You’re not strong enough!”
She tries to jump to the next rope, fails, then falls.
“They’ll never let you fly.”
“You’re a decent pilot, but you’re too emotional.”
Ok, I know I’m getting ahead of the movie here, but this guy is full of shit. “Too emotional” is not a trait Brie’s face possesses.
You know, all this jumping around with the timeline, and showing the orange-haired pussy. You’d think the film would take its own motherfucking advice and fucking “Focus.”
Holy shit. She turned into Samus Aran! Seriously, the way that “gun” thing attached to her hand looks (and speaking of female protagonists of the past who kick ass).
A Skrull screeches at her, she screeshes back. ROFL!
But honestly, I’m tired of these action sequences Marvel comes out with. All of them are assisted of CG, none of them compare to actual honest to God martial arts sequences made by Asians that Disney attempts a hollow recreation of (let alone the fight scene from Only God Forgives). They peaked with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Everything else went downhill from there. It’s just monotonous at this point. If you’re going to have a fight sequence, either try to make it really fucking good, or just make the damn thing character-focused. One of the best pointless fight sequences ever is in The Girl From Naked Eye. One of the best character-driven fight sequences is Luke vs. Vader in The Empire Strikes Back.
I’m only 20 minutes into this movie. I’m getting worried about my ability to keep going at the rate I’m consuming alcohol. Maybe doing 20 push-ups will help.
*20 push-ups later*
Focused again. Let’s see you judgemental motherfuckers try doing 20 push-ups while shit-faced. I bet half of you reading this couldn’t do it while sober. “Well why don’t you try making us look bad by doing 50 push-ups you pansy ass?” Because I’m not in the military like Brie, much less the airforce! I don’t have pecs you can bounce cherry’s off of and have women from all over the world salivate over like Dwayne Johnson does!
Holy shit. She is using those things like Samus Aran. What the fuck Disney? Why don’t you try making a Metroid movie? Please! With all this pro-feminism stuff you’re shove down our cocksucking throats, and with the amount of power-grabbing you’ve been doing in the film industry, that should be easy pickings for you.
Ok, I see where this is going. She’s learning about how strong she really is when she lets loose and just goes all out with her powers (of feminism). She can hold her own, take out a bunch of aliens fuck up their ship, and then hijack it (or at least attempt to). Guess all the “men” and “boys” were wrong about her after all. Next thing you know, Doctor Ruth will be telling her how she can dominate men sexually.
Heheh, and she blasts the computer monitor showing a man giving her advice.
Whoah, wait, what the fuck? So a Skrull blasts one of the controller parts to the escape pod she’s operating, and she still somehow manages to use it to escape the ship? And he taunts her before she hijacks it after that? Well now I feel like shaking my head back and forth violently just because I’m pissed and not because of the fucking booze.
Looks like the ship is blowing up too. Whatever.
Now you see, this is why I’m not really into these superhero films anymore, not since Civil War. These fucking people, these fucking plots. There isn’t any real stakes to the action sequences that go on for 90% of the time. Why should we be worried about the protagonist when they’re faced against a dozen enemies that can physically assault them, when they’re capable of re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere? Why should be be concerned about the protagonists when they get blasted by some lazer beam (whether from a weapon or from someone’s hands, or eyes, or ass, or crotch, or tits), when their sparring partner shrugs that off during a training session? Why should we ever give a rat’s ass about the action sequences when we are incapable of knowing what their limits are, let alone when they are pushing those alleged limits? I just don’t really give a shit anymore about the superhero franchise because of this stuff. It’s also why Batman is my favorite of the bunch (yeah, I know he’s not Marvel, but so the hell what?). At least he’s relatable. At least we know he’s human like the rest of us, and is thus susceptible to the same kind of harm we face everyday, Hollywood actions scenes where they take three times the amount of damage any normal in-shape person would be capable of sustaining aside. It would help if we could at least be shown the superhero’s limitations. Fuck, I need to watch One Punch Man at some point.
Ah yes, the Blockbuster video crash. She’s the reason why they went Bankrupt, and now have to make their last stand in Oregon! Why couldn’t she crash into an adult toy shop and long on a giant fucking dildo? That’s the only thing that would want to penetrate her flat ass.
Pfft. She sees someone, and her first reaction is to blast it (but it’s a poster). Way to show how inconsequential letting loose your powers/emotions can be.
“Veers to Starforce command, do you copy?”
“This is Buzz Lightyear, I read you loud and clear. Help me become real!”
Let the 90s nostalgia fly! In all honesty, I was a Blockbuster person in the day (even if I had to deal with shitty DVDs and VHS tapes that customers somehow managed to scratch/fuck up; what the fuck kind of lessons in responsibility were those asshats taught?), but I was never really into RadioShack. Do think it would make for an interesting location for a zombie apocalypse film though. Now with that said, I’d like to see her kick the ever-loving-shit out of Bill Cliton, and then have the power rangers gang-bang her (that includes the yellow ranger, and whoever else was a female ranger), and then have Stone Cold Steve Austin give her a stunner, and then proceed to pour concrete into her pansy escape pod while giving it the birdy. And then let’s see how well she stands up against moon shoes, skateboards, roller blades, pokemon, animaniacs, , and Super Saiyans! While she’s in the hospital, she can watch Daria to recover emotionally.
And now the Beach Girls are coming after her.
Wait, what the fuck? The Kree are 24 hours away from Earth, after doing a fucking mission on a planet where she was captured and then crashed onto Earth a few hours later!?!?!? ‘Dis is what, as they say in the 90s, bullshit! And the whole collect call for galactic communication is bullshit too.
“Have you ever been to CB53?”
“Once. It’s a real shithole.”
Considering how the aliens tend to always land in either California, or New York, or Washington DC, I tend to agree. Now just imagine if they landed in Mexico, or China, or somewhere in Africa or the Middle East.
“Witness says she was dressed for lazer tag.”
And if there were more kids playing lazer tag today compared to the 90s, there’s a decent chance there would be less fatasses running around. You can say what you want about lazer tag being cheesy and made for infants, us motherfuckers who know what real lazer tag is like know that you have to be in as much shape for that shit as you would for paintball! Run! Jump over the barricade, turn 180 degrees, and shoot the motherfucker chasing you, assuming you don’t get your digital brains blown out by the guy who was after you! On a personal note, that shit was more fun than this movie.
You know, I have to admit. As much as I expect to dislike this movie, that Stan Lee cameo does tug at the heartstrings.
So I was ok with the fight sequence on the train (just “ok” with it, not considering it as good or bad), up until the point where after she break free of the 3 guys who were holding her back (why they would attempt to restrain her after seeing the backflips granny could do, I wouldn’t know, I’d be sitting back and eating my popcorn watching the event unfold if I was on that train at that point). But the moment after that, when she’s pursuing the alien and picking up the crystal, everyone seems way too fucking casual at that point. You’d think everyone would be wide-eyed and in shock. I mean, it’s the fucking 90s for Christ’s sake. Films like this haven’t been invented yet, even if that generation would be salivating over the idea of a film where some young broad would kick the shit out of an grandma. That’s like every 90s teenager’s wet dream, next to getting married to The Little Mermaid and banging Sharon Stone.
“I’m still at the Blockbuster.”
Now wait a goddamn minute. When the fuck did the Skrull manage to pull off that infiltration technique without anyone noticing? Amidst all the police and SHIELD agents? That’s just stupid, just like Rotten Tomatoes deleting 40k+ reviews.
Hey Jackson, shouldn’t you be calling in a top secret team for Area 51 or something to cover up this alien activity? Or do you want Mulder and Scully to show up and blow the case wide open?
“Nice scuba suit. Lighten up honey, got a smile for me?”
Yeheheheh. Hehe. Hehe. Ehe-shaddup movie.
She just stole the jacket off that mannequin and exposed its tits! She’s fucking sexist!
“How’s your eye.”
Yeah, a fake-out over Nick Fury lost his eye. Nice try movie. We all know from Winter Soldier that he lost his eye because he trusted someone too much. Someone is going to stab him in the back to cause him to lose his eye. And this shouldn’t be the movie to make that happen. Should be some espionage flick, preferably with Black Widow.
This is fucking stupid! There’s no fucking way the buttfucking Skrulls could’ve infiltrated SHIELD personnel this quickly without being noticed! What the fuck kind of an operation are they running here? Just because this takes place in the 90s doesn’t mean they can get away with 90s film logic. This isn’t a fucking Andy Sidaris film, which I would be watching instead of this, especially if I wanted to see a nice girl with a great ass.
Uh, where is Brie going on that motorcycle? How would she know where to go? Is she just driving around for the fuck of it like Easy Rider? Explain movie! Explain!!!
Flashbacks at a bar, including on a Street Fighter II machine. Captain Marvel is so Mary Sue, she’ll whip anyone’s ass at Street Fighter II. We’ll see what Sirin has to say about that (that’s an in-joke reference only the most hardcore of gamers would get).
A bar with air force photos? Ok, now this film is being way too fucking coincidental. Just like in The Force Awakens, where they’re all like, “Hey look, let’s pilot the Millennium Falcon!” *8 minutes later* “Hey look, there’s Hand Solo and Chewy to take the Falcon back!” Damn you Disney and you lazy plot contrivances!
WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!?!? How the fuck did fucking Jules track fucking Brie to that fucking bar? Even for a fucking superhero film this is pushing the state of disbelief too far. How the fuck did he pull that off? Did he get into communication with Picard and say something like, “Energize me motherfucker!” and then just teleport to the fucking bar that they fucking knew she would fucking be at even though fucking technology didn’t develop fucking tracking devices that fucking far in the fucking 90s?
“Grunge is a good look for you.”
Grunge is a good look for anyone. Especially with how shitty music is today. Go back to the 90s when music actually mattered, like with Nirvana and Alice in Chains.
“I was never one to believe in aliens. But I can’t un-see that. Especially when their dicks are bigger than mine.”
“This is gonna get a little awkward, but I gotta ask.”
“Yes, I looked at it.”
“Can’t be too careful.”
“Ok, fine. I thought about sucking it too.”
Jesus Christ! What the fuck is going on!? Fury decides to immediately spill his guts (metaphorically), put his trust in her, and then take this alien bitch to a top secret base? Would’ve been more interesting if SHIELD ambushed her and took her there by force, and then Fury got to know her by interrogating her on the way there or something. Hell, I can’t imagine him being so trusting after being a Cold War spy. This film is bullshit.
“Lightspeed? Can’t admit that’s the craziest thing I’ve heard today.”
Yeah, until you hear about the Enterpise’s warp speed. I’m sorry; this fucking film makes it too goddamn tempting to resist make Star Trek and Star Wars jokes. They’re practically writing themselves. Weaponized Nerd Rage was wrong about this film, this movie is 100% riff-able.
Brie Larson isn’t worthy of wearing a NIN shirt. She should be wearing a fucking Heart shirt, at best. She’s not worthy of sporting grunge rock.
“Oh. You should see what I can do with a paper clip.”
The potential for that line, especially in the context of espionage and stuff kept from the eyes of the public. Operation Paperclips anyone?
You know, Brie, there’s less evidence of a break-in if you let Fury use his tape trick to open a door as opposed to blowing the fucking thing open. On the other hand, I guess enough time has passed in this film to where you just had to blow something.
You know, at some point, you just have to take a step back and ask yourself just what the fuck these people are doing. Seriously. What is going on here? How did we get from tracking down Skrulls on the planet, to going to a top secret base and looking at classified documents? I don’t get it. Asking about flight plans, the writing style of some individual. Can we just have Cthulhu show up to bring the whole thing full circle or something? Why the hell are these people here and why the fuck are they going through secret documents! What the fuck does that have to do with the Skrulls? Why the fuck should Brie even give a shit? Guess she doesn’t, which is why she looks bored half the time. Goddamnit, you’re making me want to watch a different movie. And that orange pussy isn’t tempting me to stick around. Seriously, what the fuck kind of a top secret facility is this where security cameras aren’t around to make sure the areas are clear (Terminator 2 certainly had them at an insane asylum for Sarah Conner, another chick more badass in the 90s than Brie is in the 2010s)? What the fuck kind of a top secret facility has animals just wandering around? Security guards would be using that orange pussy for practice. Donald Trump would be paying a visit to that security by now and grabbing that pussy, especially since it matches the color of his hair.
She’s fine! Her wooden face expression hasn’t fucking changed at all since you entered the fucking room, much less the facility!
WHAT THE FLYING FUCK!?!?!? She’s communicating to her space/alien superiors using a fucking phone from the fucking top secret military base!? How the fuck is security not on top of this?
“It’s a Marvel superhero movie. It’s not supposed to be taken seriously.”
Oh blow me! You don’t use that excuse on Batman vs. Superman, let alone Justice League, or a Michael Bay flick! And to all you fat tranny bitches with died hair, that’s not a literal invitation to blow me. Learn about metaphors in Creative Writing 101 when your not sucking off your professor in Liberal Arts class.
Seriously, this Kree infiltration is bullshit. Don’t the screenwriters know anything about buildup? Tension-building? Like letting the audience know that the Skrulls (that sounds like a 70s gangbanger) have been on Earth for a while, and have infiltrated the government on several levels or something? ‘Cause as far as I can tell, we’re to believe that these illegal aliens landed and infiltrated 1, maybe 2 days ago tops. Yeah, there’s that bit about some cunt-fingering Skrull who has been there long enough to write in a book that was confiscated by a top secret agency, but we’re not exactly getting a smooth introduction into this whole thing.
“But this was made for Marvel fanboys, and fangirls, and fanneutrals.”
The hell it was! This film retcons more shit in the Marvel comic universe than Iron Man 3 did! And the fanneutrals can kiss Bender’s shiny metal ass!
Mar-vel? Ah. Ahahahahah. Ahahah. Ahahahahahahahahah! Ok, when does the plumber or milkman show up, and when does the porn start? The plot is at that level at this point. You mine as well as start calling someone Peaches, Tess Tingler, Butt Eiful, and Lick Bait.
It’s very fucking apparent at this point that the Kree are full of shit. If they build this up to some, “What a twist!” moment, I swear to God, I’m going to choke a fucking chicken after drop-kicking a pussy- … -cat through the ceiling.
Ok, I guess this flew over my head earlier because it’s so stupid. And because I’m drunk. Brie’s character name is Vers. Not well versed in acting is she? You see how fucking easy this film is making things for me? It’s making it too easy! I’m only 50 minutes into this thing, and I’ve spent over 3 fucking hours trying to get through this thing! I should be watching fucking Blankman!
Brbrbrbrb!!! And they didn’t see her come out that door on the stairway!? You know what, fuck it. I’m going to try not to care. The film’s shit has already hit the fan at this point, so I mine as well as stop worrying about the dingle-berries.
Security guards disappearing until conveniently showing up later during action sequences.
I take it back. As much as the potential would be great to have Fury’s eye blown out during a Black Widow movie, it’s possible to have some Skrull do it who is impersonating one of his close associates.
“Do you know how to fly this thing?”
And they fly through a hanger where the doors to the landing bay are wide open, at a top secret military facility. … Go fuck yourself, with a cactus.
The fucking pussy cat is on the fucking plane too!? Jesus Christ, that does it. I need something else to watch. This is driving me nuts. Wait, scratch that. I don’t need something else to watch. I need something else to read. Fuck Marvel and fuck DC. Save me Patriotika! Show them how a real superwoman with a great bust and a great ass can really kick ass, without the plot contrivances.
6 years ago? Maybe she was a Russian who Tom Cruise blasted out of the sky during the 80s. Makes about as much sense as the rest of this shit.
Hey! Vers (aka Brie Larson) can smile! Fuck this movie for shaming men otherwise for asking her to do so earlier in the film! Her acting and emotions are still forced though. It’s like she’s uncomfortable when she has to emote, and is more comfortable when she’s not giving a shit.
Was that the main baddie from Thor: The Dark World? I thought it was widely accepted that he was one of, if not the, weakest villains in the MCU? Guess Disney really does know their audience.
Nick Fury is a glorified lap dog in this movie.
Well, Vers uses her powers to heat up a tea kettle. Nice to see that women are returning to the kitchen. Now if only she would take that fucking NIN shirt off. For one thing, she doesn’t deserve to wear it. For another, hey, be nice to give us some fan service. No? Well that’s fine, other fans did it for us. Rule 34 and all.
Phahah! I love how the editing works with her conversation with her black friend. How she’s shown to be chuckling and smiling one moment as a, “The good old times,” one moment, only to see her “bored out of her mind” face expression 2 cuts later. “This is bullshit, I did not hit her. I did naught. … Oh hi Mark.”
Is her black friend looking at her lines at various points during this conversation?
Where’s the fucking orange pussy at? Shouldn’t the little girl be playing with it right now?
Ok, I don’t know if that moment with the Skrull drinking soda out of a cup was supposed to be funny or not, but it managed to get me laughing.
Shame on this movie for not making a, “The cat’s out of the bag,” joke. It would’ve been stupid, but at least it wouldn’t be insulting my intelligence with trying to convince me that this is a smart movie. It’s fucking dumb. You mine as well as make fucking dumb jokes.
How would the Skrull be able to locate, steal, and bring about this CD with the audio recording? It’s… um… I don’t even… fuck it.
And she survives that crash? Without being knocked unconscious? But that’s… yay feminism!
“You’re blood. It’s blue.”
“Yeah, well, how’s my hair?”
I have a feeling I’ll be getting back to that line of logic.
Heheheheheh. Mar-Vel. An old alien lady who is dying and gives her final death speech to some woman whom she hopes will carry on the legacy after she is gone. Yep, seems like a good metaphor for Marvel studios today. We already have old hags fucking up the Star Wars legacy. Marvel is next on the chopping block.
Yep. The Skrulls turn out to be the good guys. The Kree turn out to be the villains. Like how “her” isn’t really a “hero.” Doop-dee-doo.
“Everything that I knew as a lie!”
So I guess you could say, *puts on sunglasses*, that you’ve been red pilled. Yeahhhhhhhh!!!
Her acting here after being red-pilled. It’s like Brie’s acting ability somehow gets worse as the movie goes on.
Refugees. People viewed as villains who are simply misunderstood like Maleficent. They’re really the good guys. A message told in the presence of women and black people. Like in reality. Dumb-de-dum-dumb. Now that we’ve got that bit of subliminal messaging out of the way…
Yeah, consider what kind of example you’ll set for your daughter. Help out a superhero who doesn’t need any help at the risk of leaving your daughter without a mother. It’s not enough that we’ve already got the “single mother” cliche going on here.
Brbrbrb! Where’d she get the superhero costume? Fuck it, nevermind.
Fuck off. The neon light suit was great!
“How do I look?”
Not as good as this:
You know, I’m pretty sure things would’ve worked out better if no Skrull stayed behind disguised as Superbitch to let Mr. Bruce Lee know that “she knows.” I’m thinking a better alternative was to scatter and let Mr. Villain search just a few hours more before the oh so convenient finale.
When blasting that ship off into space, shouldn’t the orange pussy be up against the back of the ship like last time?
Eye-roll moment of refugee family being on plot device ship. I thought you motherfuckers already dealt with the whole refugee metaphor in Thor: Ragnarok? Well, guess they gotta milk that message like they do the franchises they own.
Seriously? They’re playing the Nirvana song everyone’s heard in the Supreme Intelligence scene? How about you go a little more niche and play some fucking “Meat Puppets – Backwater” or something?
Alright already! Jesus! Stop bashing us over the head with the refugee theme! Oh those poor innocent illegal immigrants who in no way contribute to the crime statistics! Get fucked.
And the whole thing of, “She’s powerless to do anything about it.” Come on. Get it over with already so she can Mary Sue this shit. I’ve been bored with this move for an hour now.
And there it is. Finally. Going all Mary Sue. The cat too. So I can watch the rest of this care-free, until I drop it into the blue.
So somehow, their weaponry can’t destroy an Earth vessel. Mhmm.
Yadi-yada-fucking-yada. Earth ship and Earth pilot can outmaneuver and destroy an experienced top class alien ship and alien pilot..
Oh come on. Seriously? She just wiped out a space fleet. You expect there to be any tension in this final mono-y-mono showdown? Ah, but they decide not to have that mono-y-mono fight. Because they know she’s overpowered enough. And because she probably knows she’s not skilled enough without her powers to beat him. Ain’t that typical. On the other hand, it would’ve been more insulting if they did show it that way.
Yeah yeah yeah, refugee home feeling stuff. And Fury loses his eye over a pussy. By trusting someone too much in Winter Soldier, he meant trusting pussy too much. Put too much trust in the pussy, you’ll become partially blind to reason. Makes sense to me. Just get this film over with.
I have to admit, Samuel Jackson seems to be acting out of character when it comes to portraying Nick Fury in this film. I’m not kidding, this is not the Nick Fury I’ve seen in ALL of the previous Marvel films, from Iron Man and onwards. They toned down his seriousness more than they toned down Scarface in the edited for television version.
And thank fuck that’s over with.
It’s really hard to give a shit about this movie. It’s boring, and at times annoying. The only point in time when it had anything of interest to it was during the first 15 minutes, and that’s about it. I don’t get what people see in this movie to make it a box office hit. Plot contrivances, plot holes, betraying some of what was setup earlier in the franchise (and I’m sure there are Marvel fans who actually give a shit about this franchise who can tear this film a new one far better than I when it comes to contradictions and whatnot), and no tension whatsoever during the finale. This film may not have killed the franchise, but it certainly put the nail on the coffin. Maybe even hammered it in a small tap. If Endgame doesn’t hammer that nail down even further, the film after that certainly will.
Otherwise, like I said, I stopped really giving a shit ever since Civil War. I don’t have a dog in this fight other than rooting for the franchise’s downfall, and Disney’s destruction (or at least near-destruction until they change their ways). Just for the sake of getting more decent films (on average) back into theaters. Well, if this film, and the franchise, is so eager to capitalize on great stuff from the 90s and earlier, I say it’s only fair that I do the same, and continue watching films and shows from a better era. TV shows of today may be good for now, but even their downward spiral is beginning. It’s been happening ever since the last season of Game of Thrones. It’s all going to come crashing down like the gaming crash of the 80s. And I’m going to be stocking up in preparation for it.
So, in a nutshell, this film is dull. Pass.
Rated: 1.5 pussy farts / 5
PS: Guess how long it took Letterboxd to take this review down? I’ll give you a hint: it took less than 24 hours.
A couple weeks ago we were challenged by Anomalous Host to find a film for him to review. And he suggested, which is what we kicked off November with, Frankenstein & Me; some kind of a family film about a boy who wants to bring to life his own Frankenstein monster. So we thought, “Wouldn’t it be a good if we picked something in a similar vane? Like a family movie? So we thought Hocus Pocus […]
[…] We decided to throw Anomalous Host under the bus by instead requesting that he review Ghost Dad, starring Pills- pills, what pills? Bill Cosby.
You miserable bastards. Hocus Pocus would’ve been fucking perfect, especially with the news story out there about how many millennials are turning to witchcraft to fill the void of Christianity, which will eventually be overtaken by Islam who will lead the next wave of Salem Witch trials where they will stone witches and bitches to death. Plus it would’ve given me an excuse to not just tackle that movie and virginity, but also tackle Nostalgia Chick, who is an obvious influence on you guys. I’ve seen some of her videos, I’ve seen how some of her dialogue is mirrored by you guys.
Normally I’d want to do a dual review in a case like this, but I can’t do dual reviews while drunk anymore (last time I did that I binge drinked and watched Battle Royal 1 and 2, and that endeavor lasted me at least 6 fucking hours; and I’m not doing it!). So I’ll save Hocus Pocus, and Frankenstein & Me, for another time (for all you readers, I recommend both films; fuck the haters, haters suck). So it will just be this film. And as you can tell from the title, I’m not going to be doing this fucking sober. So fuck you guys for making be review a movie I probably can’t get through sober, fuck you for choosing it over Hocus Pocus, and triple-fuck-you for not reviewing Thankskilling 3 for Thanksgiving. At this point, you fuckers deserve that movie.
And one last thing. You didn’t throw me under any fucking bus. I’m the one driving that motherfucker and running these flicks over myself (except for the decent ones I stop for to give a lift). Because this film was released in April of 1990, which suits me just fine considering I needed to watch it for my next entry in my Nostalgia for the 90s series. I guarantee that you hurt me more with that Combat Shock movie.
Edit (11-22-2018): Ok, I got that wrong. Ghost Dad was released in June 1990.
PS: For those not familiar with my drunk reviews, these are reviews I pretty much type out in real-time, without bothering to correct too many typos when I catch them, and don’t really do much in post except add in some gifs and pics and vids. Because I’m pretty sure some visual images are needed to make sense of the incoherent mess you’re about to witness.
Rated: 2.5 / 5
Oh God. Those Universal Studios intro clips. I have a fondness for the last two, the ones from the 80s and early 90s. It’s about as good as the original intro logos HBO used to have.
Wait a minute. The director is Sidney Poitier? THAT Sidney Poitier? What the fuck? This movie better be better than its reputation claims, or I’m going to be sad. And I don’t wanna be fucking sad when I’m fucking drunk! I wanna be either really happy or really pissed, and nothing else!
Strange way they did that title.
“Ok sweetie, it’s storytime. Let’s see. Where’d we leave off last night?”
“With me coming into the bedroom, feeling dizzy, and then passing out?”
“Ah, right. So then I proceeded to–
Ok, the dialogue didn’t happen like that. Goddamnit! It’s so fucking hard to do this without bringing up a roofie and rape joke!
“Never, in the brilliant career of 300 years had the ghost been so grossly insulted. So he decided to enter the twins room and give them a scare–“
Aren’t we getting ahead of ourselves here? Cosby isn’t dead yet. I mean, I know it feels like he’s been around for 300 years, and I’m pretty sure this wasn’t the first time he snuck in to a room with passed out twin girls, but shouldn’t we wait a while before hitting him with the dead jokes?
Alright, I gotta stop with this. No more rapist and roofie jokes, I promise. Not unless this movie makes it too fucking easy to pass up on.
The daughter looks bored, heheh. Oh, it’s because she’s listening to a cassette player of her dad reading her a story. Well then fuck this guy. I mean seriously, not only is he not there to tell her a bedtime story in person, but the recording doesn’t even do it for longer than 1 fucking minute! Fuck this guy!
Now this movie just isn’t realistic. It’s a black family with a single father? Thought it was usually single moms that ran black families, with the dad ditching them when the family became too much of a pain in the ass for him. On the other hand, the dad isn’t there much for the family anyway. I take it back, this movie is a bit realistic. I’m going to assume the mother died or something before he could walk out on them.
Goddamnit! Just how much are they going to rub it in our face that this is a dad who puts his work far above his family? We have the, “he’s too busy to tuck them into bed,” routine. We have the, “he’s too busy to remember their birthday,” routine. What’s next? The, “Oh shit, I forgot to pick them up from school!” routine? Or the important phone call that the kids interrupt routine? Come on, what do you have?
He forgets her fucking name!?!? What the fuck, is she adopted or something? Did he take her out of foster care when she was 15? Does he have Alzheimer’s? This is bullshit!
“You take out your own garbage?”
“We pay people to do that for us. Anyway, I wanted to show Danny my new bike.”
“You mean you have a new possession and you actually want to show it off? That doesn’t sound like you Stewart.”
“Yeah. You can’t get this kind without connections. And, uh, it’s a lot faster than Danny’s. But it should be, since it’s about, uh, twice as expensive.”
“You’re a Republican aren’t you?”
Man, they really try to get ya when you’re young don’t they?
“You are so funny?”
“Well I’m not that funny.”
So far, I agree.
Ok, what the hell? I mean, I appreciate the tension with that elevator bit and all, but how the fuck is it that no one in the fucking building seems to be reacting to an elevator that just crashed from the top floor to the bottom floor? Not that this is realistic anyway, because there’s other countermeasures elevators have (which is why it wouldn’t surprise me if some Final Destination movie did that somewhere; I stopped watching them after the 3rd one, so I wouldn’t know), but I’m trying to give the movie some fucking credit here.
“Thanks. I’m trying to quit.”
Ok, now that was a little funny. I miss the days where they could drop the shit-bomb in kid-flicks. You know, like the Monster Squad, or The Sandlot.
Someone’s been playing Crazy Taxi too much. Oh wait, that didn’t exist yet. Oh God, that means this is a legitimate maniac driving the taxi! Aaaaaaaaaaagggggghhhhhhh!!!
Ok, that was a decent bus effect. Though that scene with the cop was just plain stupid.
I just started thinking, which is something I shouldn’t be doing for these reviews: what would make this movie more interesting? If Patrick fucking Swayze showed up. If that happened, we’d have one of the best ghost comedies of all time.
This doesn’t make any sense, this whole thing of him walking on solid surfaces, and then having trouble doing so when he’s in his home. I mean seriously, is the floor ghost-proof or something?
Is that Legends of the Hidden Temple on the television? No, it can’t be, that didn’t show up until 1993. So what is this kids obstacle course show? Seriously, I have a fascination for these things from the late 80s to the 90s.
Wait, so he can sit easily in his chair now!? Ah fuck it. Ghost movie logic.
Speaking of which, his kids can see him when the room is dark, but not when it’s lit up. Hmmm. Wonder if that would still happen if the ghost was a white guy?
Astonishing. The film actually has it revealed early on to the children that their dad has become a ghost. Usually films like these have 20 minutes of bullshit shenanigans before making that reveal, but this film just does it early on. I’ll give it kudos for that.
Bhahahaha! Ok, I’m not sure if this film was trying to be funny or not, but seeing his children celebrate that he’s a ghost is one of the funniest fucking things I’m probably ever going to see in films. I seriously doubt this film is going to top this moment in terms of segments that made me laugh out loud. But it’s exceeded my expectations a tad so far.
Heh, it’s also kinda funny hearing Cosby do that “ghost talk” in a manner only Cosby can do.
“Stick these on your forefingers.”
Oh my God, he’s giving him a Scientology test.
“I sensed a disturbance in the spirit ether.”
Oh, is that what they’re calling the Force now?
Aha! I called it! The wife died.
I’m actually liking this little twist on the ghost story. How people can become ghosts because heaven “misplaced paperwork,” or something like that, so sometimes people stay on Earth temporarily in ghost form until heaven gets their shit together.
Whoah whoah whoah whaoh whoah! A fucking lightsaber sound effect? Alright, now I’m pissed that these motherfuckers refer to the Force as a “spirit ether.” Hacks. Fuck you. And fuck Kathleen Kennedy too.
Ok, come on. They’re dragging on the whole “Edith is a girl’s name” joke too much, and it wasn’t funny the first time.
Well, this actually has a decent heartfelt moment. He has a good excuse for putting work over his children. Because the wife died, he used up his life-insurance funds to try and help her, and mortgaged the house too to do the same. He’s been trying to work hard and get enough funds to put himself and his family back on track. Kudos again, for not making him a 2-dimensional “job first” character.
“I’m talking about the fact that I want to concentrate, and the view and the sunlight is distracting.”
“… Ok, I’ll buy that one.”
Hah! I could imagine that line being used a lot in the screenwriter’s room.
Health inspection for life insurance. I just know this is going to contain some bullshit. X-Ray portion: bullshit. Checking your heartbeat: bullshit. Bunch of incompetent doctors. … Then again…
Ok, come on. Now this movie can’t decide if it wants to be a movie about a ghost or about an invisible man.
Lady attempting to have sex with the Bill Cosby ghost. Come on, you can do this. You can make it through without doing another rape/roofie joke.
Jesus, they are making that Stewart kid into a real (republican) dipshit. Spoiled, semi-rich, blackmailer who has no intelligence (seriously, your plan is to blackmail an “alien”? Why not tell Batman you’re planning to rob him while you’re at it?). He does have one of those cool glowy phones though.
“Put the bitch on the phone!? Put the bitch on the phone!? The bitch!?”
Those 3 lines need to be put on a T-shirt.
Ahhhhhhh, Jesus. All the shit that’s going on, and it’s going to pull the whole “kids are disappointed in their father at the end of the 2nd act” routine? You know, I really shouldn’t be bitching about something like this, considering what I was expecting out of this movie. But this film dared to show me some moments of potential to indicate that it could’ve been good. But a combination of cliches and eye-rolling moments, and leaps in ghost logic (which I’m pretty sure means fuck-all to just about everyone except for me) just keeps bringing this film back down to the level I was expecting. And that fucking pisses me off even more. Come on movie, be good. BE GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDD!!!!!!!
Man. So for the magic trick this kid is planning on doing. A black kid has himself in a straitjacket, while wrapped around in chains, and locked in a magic box? Good thing this isn’t the 1700s or someone would think he’s about to go up for auction. That’s 1 of 2 reasons (though I’m sure there’s more) as to why the teacher shouldn’t allow this stunt to happen, but he does anyway. I do like how much more lax the 90s were.
“How am I doing?”
“You’re getting an A.”
How the hell did this guy from London track down Cosby’s location? Ah fuck it, he’s got a lot of science shit that probably acts as a compass, and some computer tech, and all sorts of made up Star Trek bullshit that probably makes it logical somehow in this universe.
Fuck you for bringing up the “girls’ name” joke again.
So he’s not dead, but in some coma, where his spirit has temporarily left his body. Whatever you say to give this a happy ending.
“Let’s check the riverbank!”
Bullshit! Check the fucking hospital you dumbfucks!
Phahahahahahah!!!!! Oh my– Hahahahahahahah! Ooooohhhhh my God. I take it back. I thought them cheering when they learned he was a ghost was the funniest moment in the movie. It’s not. It’s when the daughter slips on the skates left by the dumb cunt littler daughter, rolls down the stairs, and somehow flies out far enough to smash into the television (or microwave) and stool. I mean, I know it sounds fucked up to laugh at something like this. But, Jesus Christ, that little build-up moment they had to this at the beginning of the film, and that it happened at that moment, and just how fucking far she had to fly from where the stairs were to smash into all that stuff. I’m fucking dying here. It was worth watching this movie just for that moment that brings me endless joy (well, maybe not endless; just for the next half hour or so). I don’t care how shitty the rest of the film was, it was worth it just for that.
Oh, Jesus fuck! That’s not how you carry a patient from one hospital bed to another! You don’t pull on her fucking head! Christ, as if this wasn’t funny enough.
Superfast recovery once the ghosts get back into their bodies. Too fast, especially for the daughter who should be in a fucking neck brace right now.
Ok, this is also kinda funny. Cosby finds that lunatic Satan-worshiping driver again (who somehow isn’t arrested by now), and basically tells him to commit suicide. And he drives off, leaving the audience under the impression that’s exactly what he’s going to do. Man, that’s got to be a first for a “family” movie.
And the movie ends just like that. With Cosby happy, back from the dead, but jobless, poor, and likely to live a life with a minimum-wage job for the rest of his life, unable to support his children. And he’s pissed off his rich Republican neighbor kid. He’s fucked.
It’s honestly not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Aside from some swearing, some sexual innuendo, and convincing a lunatic to commit suicide, it’s not a half-bad family film. On the other hand, families should loosen up a bit and let their children enjoy shit like this, because it’s not as if they aren’t going to here the words “shit” and “bitch” when they’re at school, or anywhere else for that matter.
Plus it has these two hilarious laugh-out-loud moments, one of which may be intentional, the other of which is definitely unintentional.
But I don’t think it was bad enough to qualify for a drunk review. Couldn’t muster up anything that drunk-type-worthy for this film. Ah, whatever.
“Well wait a minute, what about 1, 2, and 3? Aren’t you going to review those?”
Not right now I’m not.
“Well shouldn’t you watch those first?”
Maybe, but I’m not going to. I’ve heard from others that the first three aren’t as good as this one. In fact, they get progressively worse as you regress through time from what I’ve heard. On the one hand, I’ve never seen them, and don’t know anything about them other than they’re supposed to be Hong Kong martial arts flicks, so they could actually be worthwhile. On the other hand, they’re fucking martial arts movies, so I don’t give a shit. On the other hand, I promised to review this film if some mermaid named Samantha decided to watch and review that anime Dead Leaves, which she did (I promise I’m not high right now, that would cancel out the booze).
As far as I know, that’s like saying you should watch Ninja (starring Scott Adkins) before watching Ninja II: Shadow of a Tear (also starring Scott Adkins), when I can legitimately say that Ninja I is about as fucking dull as martial arts movies can get. Pacing sucks, didn’t give a shit about the plot or the characters. The only reason to watch the first one is to get a big laugh at this “sad” moment that happens in the first 20 minutes of Ninja 2. Let me put it this way. Throughout the entire first film, it’s all about this martial artist who fights to keep his girlfriend/fiance safe throughout the entire film, fighting off bad guys left and right, saving her ass countless times; even bringing her back from the verge of death near the end, and having a happy ending where they’re both lovey dovey. Then the second film literally kills her off before the first act is over. I was laughing my ass off when that happened, just knowing all he went through in the last film. That’s the only reason to watch the first, to see firsthand all he did to keep her safe only for the sequel to shit all over that. And I didn’t mind, because the action was way better (one of the better martial arts films out there, and one of the best Scott Adkins films in existence; fuck Expendables 2 for making him expendable by the way), the plot and characters were more interesting, and it’s an altogether more memorable film.
Plus I’m the kind of guy who likes eating his dessert first before getting through the bland main course. On that note, I’ll be treating myself to my new favorite alcoholic beverage, Malibu Caribbean Rum With Coconut Liqueur throughout the runtime, and doing my usual typing/reviewing while simultaneously watching the film, proving to all the doubters that I can multitask, let alone proving that drunk people can multitask. And if there’s any typos (likely more than usual), fuck it, they stay (but I will be inserting gifs/pics/vids in post-production, hopefully right after watching it while I still got a buz). And in case you think this is too unhealthy, I’ve got that covered. I vegged out an hour ago, eating my fill of broccoli and carrots. It balances out, like eating a salad before taking on a ice cream sundae.
Alright, let’s see a young Donnie Yen beat the shit out of some punks. And fair warning, I usually swear a lot more when I’m drunk, so… you’ve been warned.
Alright, come the fuck on, do we have to see the MEdia Asia logo twice? D & B sounds important… it’s Donnie & Breakdancing!
And… wait a minute… goddamnit, I guess I am too fucking drunk. I downloaded the wrong fucking movie. It’s the first Line of Duty, not the 4th one. Hang on, let me find it and download it (gives me a chance to get even more drunk, I’m not fucked up enough; I get more intelligent the more drunk I get, assuming I don’t overdo it and spend the next 2 hours puking my guts out). Ok, there it is. Let’s try this again.
Fucking Review, Get It Right This Time, Take 2
Wait a goddamn minute! Is this the same fucking movie!? The title looks exactly the same! Same fucking music, same fucking style of titles! Am I losing my fucking mind here!? Let me check back on the last motherfucking video. Holy shit, I’m not losing my mind (well maybe I am, if these films keep pissing me off by being so similar during the first 2 fucking minutes), they are exactly the same. Only difference is that the 4th movie has the number 4 stuck at the end of the title. Who the fuck do these people think they are, Lucasfilms? You’re not Star Wars and neither is your opening title credits. This had better be fucking good.
Port of Seattle. What the fuck? Isn’t this supposed be in China? Fuck it, who cares, just give me some action.
I’ve seen this chick somewhere before. Must’ve been in some other Chinese flick from a long while back.
Hey! There’s Donnie Yen! Please tell me we’re going to get a male vs. female fight that’s a lot better than that shitty one from Ecks vs. Sever.
Uh… nothing is happening. People staring and walking and day turning to night. Boxes. Van. Hertz.
Fuck my life. It’s not subtitled! Now I gotta track down a version that does have subtitles! Motherfuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu—!!!
Fu*hic*cking take 3, and fuck you if you laughed.
Well now that I’m rewatching this opening segment, I see that there’s some coke tasting going on amidst this walking around.
Oh Jesus. I’m never going to be able to watch this film as intended am I? It’s subtitled, but the subtitles are partially cut off, and they’re dubbing over the fucking Chinese language with some other shitty language other than English. Ok, I’m going to improvise. Play 2 back to back, mute one, so that I can lsiten to the original audio and watch this half-assed subtitle version. Christ, the things I put myself through. Fucking youtube.
Oh, wait, finally found a decent streaming site that actually has the movie in the original fucking dub with english fucking subtitles. 4th time had better be the fucking charm, that’s half the fucking number of seasons that series had.
Take 4, appropriate for the film’s title; eat a dick.
Sneaking around the transportation docks with some Hertz product placement. Decent jumps. Sneaky acrobatics. Busted, or not.
“Make yourself at home, have a drink.” Alright, now you’re talking my language; it’s universal you judgemental pricks.
Huh, I guess this is in Seatlle, with Chinese workers. Illegal immigrant Chinese workers, one of which got his ID card (hey, at least he worked for it).
Whoop, smash through window. The fuck? These aren’t police. Gangsters? Loan sharks. Chinese loan sharks. You never fuck with Chinese loan sharks. Unless you know karate apparently, then you can threaten them with screwdrivers (and no, I’m not talking about the drink).
Now, you see, why can’t Americans make fight scenes this good? Holy fucking shit! Wrench nunchucks? Ok, now this movie is fucjing awesome! Fuck sinks.
Ah, gambling debts. What’s worse? Loan sharks, or casino mercenaries?
Ok, are they just doing a fight scene for the hell of it now? I guess not, there is this guy was was actually tailing her who she caught and fought off. I thought it was some master-apprentice thing. Ah, why should I care? The action is good.
Seeing young Donnie Yen is almost like seeing young Keanu Reeves. Put them in a movie together!
What the fuck movie!? Why are you having Donnie Yen arrive at the scene of a beatdown crime after the beatdown is over? That’s bullshit! He should be kicking ass and taking names! Whoop, I sit corrected, he did arrive in time to beat the fuck out of two guys no one gives a shit about.
Camera product placement. Oh come on, since when does a loan officer ever succeed in arresting at least half a dozen guys? It never happens. Just let us see this guy die and get it over with. Jesus, this film didn’t waste anytime fulfilling that wish. That fucking idiot deserved to get capped too. Had the gun aimed at him while he slowly reached for a shotgun, casually pulled it out, and blasted him. What a fucking idiot.
Wait, he’s not dead yet? Come on! Ok, now he is, just in time to hand camera evidence over to some other guy who will get away.
Typical interrogation BS. Seattle police, of course they speak Chinese. Police brutality.
You know, this movie is stupid. But it’s fun. Of course some arrested guy in the interrogation room can beat up a corrupt cop, steal and wear his police uniform, and walk out of the station scott free. Simple.
“America is a hard place to make money. You’re better off in Hong Kong.”
Ok, that’s pure Chinese bullshit propaganda right there. That’s only true if you’re a coporporate owner or something.
Why aren’t there any English speakers yet? This is like if everyone spoke fucking English in that Tom Cruise movie The Last Samurai.
Bhahahah! They tell him to freeze and he throws a loaf of bread at them! I fucking love it!
For fuck’s sake, pick up the goddamn gun and use it against them. But no, only the bad guys can use guns. Some bullshit, I should be jacking off and watching Tiger on the Beat.
Yes! A Donnie Yen fight! Nice run across the roof of apartment buildings. Budget product placement. Fast scene transition.
Oh come on, you’re telling me Mr. Facial Hair can’t speak English either? How many fucking Chinese speakers do they have in Seattle? They must have as many Chinese speakers there as they have Mexicans in California!
Pfft! What they hell was that? That whole putting together a ripped in half dollar bill? Oh for fuck’s sake. The black guy speaks Chinese too? In the slums? I wanna see some Italian director make a spaghetti western in Africa and have them all speak Russian.
Ok, now I think they’re in China, so now they have an excuse to speak Chinese. And they’ve got Chinese police who swarm around not doing any bullshit. They don’t fuck around like Americans do.
Another Donnie Yen fight! Bhahahahah! His name is Donny! I fucking love this movie!
“By running off, you’re innocence has turned to guilt.” Tell that to Harrison Ford in The Fugitive.
It’s just nonstop action isn’t it? Now they’ve hijacked an ambulance and used sleeping gas. Except that one girl was smart enough to use an oxygen tank. Nice stuntwork. Holy Christ, this is really fucking good stuntwork! And they’re playing Street Fighter music! This is one of the greatest movies of all time! Indiana Jones ain’t got shit on this girl! Seriously, they’re ripping off Raiders of the Lost Ark here. Well, almost.
Oh, God! Now that’s brutal fucking torture. Hands tied up, feet dangling on a giant ice slab in a freezer. Tied up to an ice cube in a freezer. That’s brutal shit. Oh God! Now they spray him with water while he’s in the freezer!
Oh come on, that’s fucking lame! There’s no way they shoudl’ve gotten out of that!
Ooooooohhhhhh. Ok, a double-cross. Well now the escape isn’t fucking lame.
It’s the Chinese police. Whoop Whoop! It’s the sound of the beats (your ass all the way to Chinatown). Whoop whoop!
Hey, what happened to Donny? I know Yeung is more of the star here (next to this other guy who no one will remember after this movie ends, though he’s not half bad with the martial arts), but still.
Oh shit! Plot twist, Donnie Yen is his mother! Ahahahahah! Ok, so she’s in the kitchen, it would’ve been better (and made more sense) if Donny was his mother. With parental abuse and everything. “How dare you criticize my cooking! Take this karate chop!” *whack!* “Not eat my Chinese noodles!?” *kwack!* “Holy Long Wang Batman!” *Bam!* Handcuffed dumpling eating. *slap!*
Fuck’s sake, they’re doing this bumbshit romance angle? She’s too good for this guy, even if he is a wrongly accused martial artist, whose a blue-collar lifter.
Donny says, “I’m a policeman from America.” Right, and I’m a photographer from India.
Holy shit! Did the main blue-collar Chinese protagonist just die? What the fuck!? Is Donny holding a mannequin? Where the fuck did that come from? Why the fuck is he carrying it? How is the protagonist still alive after taking a chest shot? Don’t tell me Donny is going to die? Oh yeah, look up after Donnie fell down, ’cause that’s where Donny went 1 second later. Huh, decent hiding spot in all honesty. What about the mannequin?
Weirdo fight. Mind game fight. Decent. The sounds this guy made though…
Blah blah, fell sorry for chest-shot protagonist and emotion philosopy moral lesson on compassion, blah blah, don’t act cool– what!? Donny not act cool? Fuck you lady!
“Both of you are responsible for his life.” Let me correct that. “Both of you are irrestponsible for his life.”
US navy seal pentagon with connection to the U.S. pentagon? Man, this film really does have it out for Americans doesn’t it? While ripping off their films. Seriously, there’s some Lethal Weapon vibes I’m getting now.
More police brutality. And the American dies. Well, he was an asshole anyway.
Car bomb. Psych! Hospital ambush. Psych! It’s just a nurse. Psych!
God Cynthia Khan and Donnie Yen make a great duo. Now I want to see the rest of these films, assuming both are in them.
Donnie Yen and his feels.
“Sorry, I shouldn’t have said that.” What the hell? You didn’t call her a bitch or a woman yet (’cause the latter would be offensive, obviously). She just said you were thinking that! This is… ghah!
“Hey, foul mouth!” Yes?
Side-note: Have to admit, Malibu rum tastes better when it’s not chilled, unlike vodka (the latter tastes shitty no matter what temperature you drink it at; try sake, it’s great whethere it’s chilled, hot, or lukewarm).
“Yes sir.” Holy motherfucking shitballs! They spoke English! It’s a mirale!
Shootout drug-bust (pity we don’t see the other kind of bust).
Yes! One of those great so-bad-it’s-good deaths only asian martial arts flicks can produce! You know, the kind where they seem to be writhing in pain and agony, then fall limp-dick dead less than a split-second later. I never get tired of seeing that shit, because there’s no way I can’t laugh at it.
Catfight! Kick to the tits! Holy shit, this fight is the best thing since the ambulance fight!
Hah! Donny’s instinct to being waken up suddenly. Wake up swinging! God I love this movie!
Hah! Black dude in a granny outfit! God I love this movie! Delayed kick-to-face reaction.
Donny makes drinking tea look cool.
Ok, I’ll admit, this criticism of America is warranted here. Bashing the CIA for selling drugs to South America. But this isn’t exactly a deep movie. It’s just one more excuse to have another fight scene.
Oh, what the hell? Why in the holy mother of all fucks is there an axe sticking out of a tree next to a public street? This makes no goddamn sense.
Oh God yes! A motorcycle fight! A motorcycle shovel vs. sledgehammer fight! Now I know there’s a God!
So now they’re on the run from the police because that asshole says they’re criminals? I’m not even sure how the fuck he convinced them to do that (get the police to treat them as criminals that is).
Oh. Oooohhhh! I sense a finale! And there’s a giant fuck-off American flag that you just know is going to get desecrated somehow.
Ok, this is a first. A tape cassette that’s also a bomb. Points for originality on that one.
Final fight, 3 on 3. Coke advertisement.
Typical bullshit. Good guys take a beating, feign pain and suffering, then take the bad guys out with a Van Damme comeback like it was nothing, without giving the villains a chance to feign pain. At least the villain chick earlier had that going for her, even if she lost and got the shit kicked out of her.
Donnie Yen vs. big black musclecakes. This fight is actually pretty damn good too. There’s a few really great fights in this movie.
How the hell did that last gunshot work? Ah, whatever.
Yep, called it, flag desecration. Would like to see America do something like that to the Chinese (or Russian, or Korean) flag.
Been a while since I’ve done this, but it’s been a regular thing with each Fifty Shades of Butt-Fucking film that’s come out over the past couple years, so I mine as well as finish it all the way to the climax. Climax, something none of these films have ever gotten me to do. Because not only are the sex scenes sissy shit, they have been getting less and less enticing with each passing film. Hopefully this one will be better, but if not, I fucking swear I’m putting up porn gifs/pics on this blog entry. One way or another, I’m getting a fucking climax (hey, maybe you will too). You’ve been warned.
Oh, and there better be ass-slapping in this like there was in the last 2 films. And there better be some unintentional hilarity (which the first film provided, the second film far less so). If not, I’m going to throw a bitch-fit. Oh, who am I kidding, it’s a drunk review; bitch-fits are inevitable.
That’s right. Like Twilight, these dipshits gotta get married. Now consummate the fucking thing!
Been playing nice for too long. I need a film to piss me off.
Fifty Shades Darker. Guess that means this will be darker than the last film. Kinda wish they named this Fifty Shades of Blue or something, that way it would be easier to make immature sex jokes, like Fifty Shades of Blue Me, as in blow me. If this film doesn’t have people getting blown in it, in the sexual way, I’m going to get pissed and start watching some actual honest-to-God porn. If this film pisses me off enough, I might lose my cool and actually post porn on this blog page.
And there had also be plenty of ass-slapping like in the last film.
Like every drunk review I do, I’ll be typing my responses in real-time while the movie plays, as opposed to pondering the film when it ends and then writing a review. Because honestly, why the fuck would anyone want to ponder a film like this?
Yes, you read the title right. Drunk review. What’s a drunk review in this case? Well I down a drink or two before the movie starts, then start watching the movie, and typing my thoughts down on it in real-time (occasionally pausing the movie if I have to write a lot, which is often, which tends to double the length, pleasure, and fun. Or misery, depending on how I take it. I consider those last two sentences to have better written satirical sex puns than the entirety of this fucking movie.
