Thank you for getting this song stuck in my head. No, I mean it. This movie rocked.

And hey, why not this too?

WHEN YOU GOT THE GLOOOOOOOOW!

I haven't watched this guy before. Does Bob always spend 3/5 of a show talking about other movies and the directors? What was the point of having an extended clip from There Will Be Blood? It felt like by the time he got around to the actual film he just spewed out a shake and bake review. Someone I know told me Bob could be fun to watch, but is THIS normal for him?

Oh thank GOODNESS MovieBob mentioned Hotel Transylvania and said it was pretty good! That's all I needed to hear (not that I needed a recommendation from him to go see it, as Genndy Tartakovsky directed the movie).

Might I ask for a Big Picture on Magnolia? Maybe afterwards, I'll get the film, but so far: That stupid ending didn't make any sense at all. The best thing about Magnolia was the start; the rest -- meh.

Not normally, but there is a bunch of new releases coming out and he's limited by what he can see and what the show covers. The clip from There Will be Blood is proving his point about the director of The Master. It has everything to do with explaining his thoughts on the movie and the director of the movie.

It doesn't come out here in Europe until LATE JANUARY!

Who does not know the Shogun of Harlem?

You know when you're watching an American sitcom and the wife always wants to go out and be more cultured, she wants to go and see opera's and art exhibitions and the husband wants to sit at home watching sport but gets dragged out by the bagging wife?

This seems like a movie the wife would want to see. Fuck all action and mountainous piles of character development.

I think I'll go watch the expendables 2 instead.

And thus Oscar season has begun, with this movie that's NOT about The Doctor's crazy frenemy from their childhood on Gallifrey, but "based on a true story" about Scientology. On Anderson's other movies Bob mentioned, I still can't make it through the 2nd 1/2 of Boogie Nights and to this day I have no idea what There Will Be Bood was about. Texas Oil men in the early 20th century? Daniel Day-Lewis shouting at the top of his lungs for 2 hours?

And about Dredd: It's grokking AWESOME!!! 2D, 3D, don't matter, it's just as insanely violent and off the wall as it should be, and Judge Dredd himself is a stone-cold badass laying down the law. Gotta see Looper.

Wait. Master? Blaster? Ho ho ho, you clever clog. Well done, sir.

captcha: sea shore
where she sells sea shells. Where else would she, the desert?

Dredd sounds like a movie for me.
Masters does not.
Reference... no idea what that was all about...

Paul Thomas Anderson: technically proficient director, absolutely too moralistic in the final accounting for me. In what universe have you made bad life choices when your life consists of banging both Heather Graham and Julianne Moore in their prime? What the hell else were you going to do if your career options were: greatest porn star ever or uneducated bus boy?

Looper: fantastic for the first third. Very good to good up until near the end. Not so thrilled with the ending.

DVS BSTrD:
I think the escapist should have a standby movie reviewer for this time of year.

Edit: It's always the same isn't it? You start out thinking you can master the tides, but instead you just end-up riding the Wave.
Now THAT'S an obscure reference!

I had to really think about that one.

No, this is a special case, watch some of the earlier one. He only mentions movies when they either relate to the movie being reviewed or movies that were popular that didn't screen for him.

Who's da Master? Sho'Nuff!

Kiss my Converse!

Bob, Bob, Bob, how you underestimate us. Who doesn't know THE SHOGUN OF HARLEM!!!

I like how moviebob just pretends Hard Eight doesn't exist because it invalidates the first half of this review.

So, one could say that The Master bates Oscars?

Sho nuff!

I really enjoyed Dredd and its pretty true to the comics although in the cityscape vista it did just look like LA that they just plonked some 200 storey skyscrapers in.

Its a far better film than Stallone's but I prefer the city in that one. Although i may have to re-watch it to be sure

Great, now I have to blow the dust off of my old VHS copy of The Last Dragon.

And I haven't owned a VCR since 2001.

Can't wait to see it! This will separate the sheep from the goats in regard to Paul Thomas Anderson's films.

Also, that RZA 'kung fu' film -- not interested. I grew up on the ACTUAL kung fu films not the piss poor dubbings and rude recuts and splices which RZA, Tarantino and the like all worship. Commemorating such films is perfectly fine endeavour and undoubtedly fun, but it has little to nothing to do with the original films and genre, nor the culture they came from, and this weird objectification by hip hop makes no sense to me. I'd rather dig out the classics and watch them.

I just came back from watching Dredd. I feel a little underwhelmed coming out of the film, but its only because I don't think I fully "get" what the point of Judge Dredd as a character is supposed to be.

Genndy Tartakovsky directing an Adam Sandler movie? I'm so conflicted right now.


I'll admit it, I had to look up the obscure reference, I did recognize Lord Bowler though.

"I've already eaten!"

Julius Carry R.I.P.

An obscure reference? Sho'nuff.

Epic.

"who is the baddest?!"

(The answer is Bruce Leeroy)

Bow to your master!

It was filmed in South Africa apparently. I thought that the cityscape was very well done, as was the whole movie. It was a nice, well done action flick that made sure all of its component pieces were well put together. It wasn't a "large" film, but then I think that worked in its favor. Karl Urban was fantastic in it. Wouldn't have even known it was him if I hadn't known before hand.

Oh god, if you really want an action movie don't see that sorry excuse for nostalgia bait and mediocre action. Dredd and The Raid (out now on Blu Ray) are what you should check out instead.

Already seen the raid, it wasn't warrior king or ong bak though.

Never been a dread fan, although apparently the Stallone one was awful and that is my only encounter with dread.

WHEN YOU GOT THE GLOOOOOOOOW!

I also remember this movie, but I think the joke was actually about the title "The Master" and how our hero in "The Last Dragon" is sent to search for "The Master" and who (or rather what) it actually turns out to be. :)

No it is not too obscure. William H. Macy is in that movie Bob. Its for 30seconds to a minute of screen time but hes in it.

I dont get it.... V/H/S is coming to the box office? i saw it like a month ago in local rental. It was bellow average movie. Whats up with it being re-released?

I'm just here to say Amy Adams is hot and I enjoy her performances.

THERE! I SAID IT!

...So therefore, I might watch this movie.

I always stick around for the bump at the end of the credits. Its always worth it but this time...

WHO'S THE MASTER!!!
SHO'NUFF!!!!

I love that movie. Blacksploitation and kung fu in one bad movie. Awesome

Nope. Reference is perfect and appropriate. Thank you Bob for all that you do.
