Did you learn even a little?
« on: July 15, 2017, 01:42:09 PM »
I learned that Bill has certain expectations from Total Darkness.

I did NOT learn why all of those people thought they could just abduct a MAGICAL BEING.
Edit: Ok, so apparently anybody can abduct this magical being.

I learned that Britain doesn't have any laws against animal cruelty, stalking, harassment, trespassing, breaking and entering and theft, and that when confronted with a person who wants to commit violence, the police will wilt like a dead flower.
I survived the San Diego Comic Con 2010 Hall H stabbing.

Trekker - This is still better than Rollergator though. Of course I can't see myself rewatching it like i have Rollergator.
Fodder's just this guy, you know.

Less on the quality of the movie itself and the type of movie it is and my personal preferences for movies seen to be riffed.

This movie was too.... "kiddy" or "light" or silly for it to stick with me?  I'd say it's akin to "To Catch a Yeti" which is about where my tolerance level peaks on this type of movie.

Riffing is fine and the movie is certain incompetent but there was not much here for me to latch onto for me to get pulled into the terribleness of the movie.

I agree, this movie is the kind of kiddie fluff that lazy producers make who have no respect for children, and think they will just be satisfied because it's "whimsical" and "magic". Essentially waving glitter covered keys in front of their faces.
To Catch A Yeti was more aggressively awful, though.

Yeah, Yeti was more "awful" but in a manner that, for me, was watchable.  Plus, Meat Loaf.

This one is just.... It was hard to watch. The riffs were funny and landing with me but if I can't get into the movie, even as a bad movie, it's hard for me to remain committed to it.

Meat Loaf was hilarious, because he was in a completely different movie. Not necessarily a good one, but a different one.

Even David Warner didn't stand out in the movie. Normally great old British actors like that have the class to still give good performances (or at least memorable ones) even in bad movies. But he clearly didn't give a shit. I can't say I blame him, but it was disappointing.

Yeah, I had the same thoughts on Warner.   He didn't care and it bled through and saturated the movie.

He's not like some actors when they're in bad movies and they know it so they make it as much fun as possible. (Mark Whalberg, Christopher Walken, Nicholas Cage and Michael Sheen all come to mind.)

True, but even when he was in Quest of the Delta Knights he gave a better performance than this. And in QotDK he was 52, while he was 61 in TLU, so it's not like he was nearly dead (he's actually still alive now, I was surprised to find out).

I had to watch this in three parts. Some good jokes but so hard to get through.

There should probably be a HIPAA equivalent for veterinarians.

I learned that a ring master will just have all his acts perform at the same time, creating a dazzling, confusing, noisy sensory mess.

I learned that people will be amazed by a unicorn act that consists of nothing but a guy whipping a unicorn next to a caged lion.

I learned that kids will try to create a diversion by opening up a bunch of animal pens, but when the animals just kinda mill around instead of creating that diversion, they'll just kind of forget about it and go for the head on confrontation.

I learned that unicorns are basically pretty docile and will go wherever with whomever without fighting back or trying to escape.  Maybe horses are this way... I dunno.  I don't understand horses either and they generally terrify me, but I expect more from unicorns.
I'm not particularly religious, and I don't really like Muppets, but I do love word play.
