Not sure surprised it is tanking so bad. I cringed at the idea of Stallone doing something with Poe's work. Now that...would be a horror movie.
Too bad, I was looking forward to The Raven.
I guess I'll have to go and watch it anyway and make my own mind. I am a Poe Boy after all.
I do like Bob's advice and opinion though. :)
PS a better Kirk than a Picard
John Cusack sucks. This movie sounds like the Pillowman, which is a really awesome horror play, but certainly this shit movie won't live up to its standards.
The Great JT:
Parte the Firste: Your Picard sucks more.
Parte the Seconde: How was The Pirates: Band of Misfits?
Indeed - you couldn't have burned that extra minute discussing "The Pirates" instead of doing bad Star Trek impressions, Bob?
Or could have talked about SAFE.
The Raven sucks? THANK GOODNESS! Now I don't have to worry about chosing between it and Safe.
Poe was a guest character in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, maybe he'll make a more convincing appearance in the upcoming Tim Burton-produced and honestly kind of cool looking in a cheesy way film of the same name.
As for the topic you brought up during your "I only make ten minutes of video a week but this movie sucks so bad I can't even fulfill that quota" moment, lemme break it down:
1) Space is a practical problem. It will be solved by eccentric billionaires who want to mine asteroids for $400 buckets of space-water, not romanticized mascots of the 1970's civil rights movement.
2) Space is empty. Void and rocks. Any adventure we take from it will be man-made as we shape the galaxy in our own image. These adventures will largely be introspective and philosophical.
3) Space has no green alien chicks who live in an eternal state of estrus that only the touch of an eager human male can satisfy. You're less likely to get laid in space than you are if you dump glitter on your head and stand in the sunlight. Grow a pair and start talking to real women.
For a decent movie about poe.
Look up the masters of horror epsiode the black cat, starring jeffrey combes (reanimator) and directed by stuart gordon (reanimator).
For adaptations of his stories any of the roger corman pictures.
Your Picard is by far the worse. There's a great movie to be made about Poe, it's just that no one has even come close to succeeding.
I was really hoping you'd do an Avengers review today, but I guess you didn't have the time. As you haven't, I've prepared my own as an, albeit worse, substitute.
avengers...i wana no ur opinion bob!!
for me it was a major let down
His Picard is definitely worse.
I was hoping it was for The Avengers but you're probably waiting for the US release before you do that review I guess...I expect giddy schoolgirl screaming from you Bob.
Never even heard of this Raven movie but it looks dumb. A hollywood bullshit spin on Edgar Allen Poe trying to take advantage of the Sherlock Holmes cash draw.
Also...you did Shatner better than Picard but they were both pretty bad (however they were ten times better than what I could've done!)
Quote the Raven: "DURP SQUAWK"
I don't get it, what exactly makes you say we are in the TNG section of the future? That seems pretty random.
As to your question in the last minute, think cycles.
Picard was is so much sexier then Kirk... I MEAN A BETTER LEADER!!!
No. I wouldn't say your Kirk or Picard impressions suck. It's your overall interpretation of Star trek that sucks. Get laid with green alien ladies? Here's the big picture Bob. Nobody ever slept with the green alien girl in the original Star Trek series. In fact, that Orion girl you used to convey that fact was an Orion named Marta, and she actually tried to seducing Kirk in the episode "Whom Gods Destroy" and failed. Even Elaan, the young alien lady who actually inflicts a natural love potion on Kirk fails to win him over. Not every good looking alien girl in the Original series meant that everyone got laid.
And as for the Next Generation era? It may have been more diplomatic, but it did give Star Trek it's own 9/11 in the form of Wolf 359 with the arrival of the Borg. That battle changed many fundamental aspects of the Federation to the point where it became more militaristic and even condoned willful acts of genocide towards an entire species. And let's not forget that the TNG era gave us Deep Space Nine, a series that took place during the same time as TNG and gave us the series long Dominion War. A War that the Federation came very close to losing.
So thank you Bob for helping Star Trek remain trapped in an era where only the men run the show and the women are nothing more than objectified eye candy. Or do you honestly believe that Uhura's role in JJ's film was crucial enough that everything would have been undone if it wasn't her that listened to nothing?
Hey, you know that "shut up and take my money" thing? It's gone full circle, no, maybe a spiral of shittiness, but either way... It's not funny anymore (if indeed it ever was) and it makes us all look like gullible consumerist children. All you have to do is slap that on literally any announcement and you somehow spin it into a good thing. Meanwhile, all the nerds are solemnly nodding to the reference. If it turns out that what you bought wasn't worth it, there are enough other memes to make up the difference in negativity and make everyone forget you misused that meme in the first place.
Futurama is funny, I get that. Even if you're not referencing Futurama or indeed anything, no force on earth should make you want to give up your money like that. Money is blood, sweat and tears, as well as power. You're going to toss it away for... what?
Hot Kirk-on-Picard action!
Bakula is imminent. Lock your doors!
... Your Picard sucks worse.
Wait... has no one heard of "The Black Cat" with Jeffrey Combs...?
Oh well, it wasn't a real movie just a Masters of Horror, still...
Without even thinking I watched that today on Netflix...
That was bad, really bad. Unintentionally hilarious in how his wife could never seem to stay dead though.
I wonder how many Anti-nintendo fanboys are going to rage about bob being excited from NSMB2.
Why did you not review the avengers?
The US is one of the LAST countries to get it in cinemas like Australia usually is! (I saw it 2 days ago at Hoyts! It lives up to every character of the hype!)
Given how this video brings up both Star Trek and Edgar Allan Poe, I give you this:
Better than the movie: yay or nay?
Your Picard is terrible. Truly. Your Kirk is bearable, but your Picard just hurts, man. Please don't do it again.
And I'm already contractually bound to exchange any souls I acquire for new Nintendo titles. Looks like I'll need a new nihilist patsy to rob to finance my next purchase.
Is it at least pretty? I've enjoyed plenty of period pieces that were total crap just because they were fun to look at and relatively historically accurate.
I liked John Cusack in sixteen candles...
that's about it.
An author working with police to track a killer using his work for inspiration for murders!
Where have I seen that...
Back to the more important topic of the video, The Picard accent was worse but that's okay. No one can mimic Picard's voice.
What is the gore section he's talking about in the film?
What is the gore section he's talking about in the film?
From the footage in the review, I'm guessing the part with the pendulum-blade, since I vaguely remember something like that in a Saw movie.
So Iron Sky still not out in the US yet?
So Moviebob is having a fanwank over a new Mario game. The game that looks just like the last 2d sidescroller mario?
I have to wonder why Nicolas Cage wasn't cast as Poe. This seems like a movie that would've been perfect for him.
Definitely would've got me interested.
