A. I was the first one to do it.

Uh, no. You were. Maybe here in this thread, but that kind of thing has been done since, I don't know. I think Remus used to say things like that to Romulus. It's long since grown tiresome.

But this has spun out of control a bit and it's best to just drop it. The chubby Cheeto kid was not meant to be you, though. Just the sort of person I imagine usually makes comments like that.

But in light of reading John August's blog about the demise of the Shazam movie, I now have another reason to hate Dark Knight. It ruined the movies of two of my favorite superheroes.

The Dark Knight was a great superhero movie, but... Really, Best Picture? With a script like that? Eh... It got nominations in other categories, and won a couple, which it deserved. It wasn't the best movie of 2008, though.

Batman Begins was way better than The Dark Night, better plot, better acting, more grit, all around a better movie.

Only thing worthy of a nomination in the Dark Night was the Joker, and that got properly rewarded. Everything else was subpar to Batman Begins.

I can't believe The Dark Knight got treated this way. Good on you Moviebob!

Hey, that was pretty good. I'll be paying more attention to this guy in the future.

Get this man his own series! I loved all of his reviews, that were part of the Escapist show.

Uncensored and honest. More please.

Agreed. Moar, etc.

I know this is old, but the only think I want to comment on is... Wow, you sound different from usual. I guess I'll have to take your word for it that you're angry and your Boston accent is coming out.

I just noticed that; but I don't mind.
The Massachusetts/Nantucket accent is the only regional accent I like. My dad used to have one before he got used to living in upstate New York.

Interesting...

Also, this one time, this one waitress thought my mom has a Minnesota accent. While it's true that I was born in Minnesota and my family lived there for a while, I don't think we lived there long enough to gain an accent of any kind.

10 points for the caption at 4:53 having speech marks before but not after 'The Wrestler' :P

In response to this video I have to ask, who takes the Oscars seriously? Esp. since there's enough award shows around to choke Monstro the Whale rendering the Oscars kinda meaningless. And really they're all a farce.

Damn good movies, these were. It was a good year for Best Picture noms. I too was annoyed about DK's snub but Slumdog, Benji, Reader, and Frost were great and I'm told that Milk was good too.

Also: I'm annoyed that this was the first time I saw this Moviebob vid. I would've never seen hit had I not just linked here from his Game Overthinker Special message.

Bob's voice sounds like something between a really thick Boston accent and Bob's voice today.

Yes, I'm commenting on this because I felt like burning time away before I go to sleep and happened to come across this after searching for Yatzee interviews.

A little thread necromancy here, but Bob recently did an entire video in his Boston accent, and I got linked here.

So bazaar to see him ranting out of style about something I completely disagree with. Dark Knight was really not a great movie. If there wasn't a dead actor involved with it, I don't think anyone would remember it in 5 years.
