So they made a movie out of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ou8vRWTSsJo ?
with Adam Sandler?
Thought the same thing.
here's the original on poetv, although it's a shitty version where someone replaced the soundtrack with shitty music. I put in a resubmit of the original. http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=77322
I was thinking the Video Game episode of Futurama.
That's a good episode of Futurama, yeah.
Yes it actually is based upon the short. Fuck this movie because Adam Sandler.
Someone sent the script back with a note reading, "Sandler MUST say the name of every game characters encounter out loud. It is impossible to underestimate the intelligence of his audience."
Adam Sandler AND Kevin James? Oh sign me up for that!
That's what I said. But I'll prolly see it anyways. Cuz that's how I am.
I know that monkey, his name is Donkey.
Who will inform the Widow Pacman about this movie?
MONKEYS AREN'T DONKEYS.
QUIT MESSING WITH MY HEAD!

FUCK! This had me until 1:04. I think my favorite Futurama episode is still the one with the space invaders and would've loved to see a more realistic take on it, like Patrick Jean's short film as commented on above. 5 because you'll look back and think "man, infinite zest was kinda right about CHAPPiE, because this is what Summer's gonna look like oh fuck."
Also 5 for the most stereotypical Asian since Donger in Sixteen Candles.
Oh. Directed by Chris Columbus. He's like the shitty, alive version of John Hughes.
Seriously though, they blew up an 8 minute segment into 90 minutes and I doubt it will be half as funny as those 8 minutes. How can anyone want to see this? I wonder if it has "The Boys Are Back In Town" on the soundtrack.
I guess I'm getting a little cranky in my old age.
Holy shit. I didn't even see the Patrick Jean credit on imdb. I'm surprised they gave him credit at all. The first instance I remember was from Alex Garland's The Beach
yeah.. let's just forget about that.. and of course Futurama. The concept's nothing new. I guess I can feel better knowing that Mr. Jean is probably set for life, but at what price? This could've been really good!
lol I dont care, its not my movie. I cant stand Adam Sandler or Mall cop either, but Ill gladly pay my twelve bucks to see my childhood arcade favorites destroy a city in shot after trucks-of-burning-money shot!
Yeah.. it would be fun especially in 3D. The only movie I've seen in actual 3D was Godzilla, and the backstory, while well-acted and such, was unnecessary, especially when wearing glasses. From the trailer it doesn't really seem like an Adam Sandler or Blart Cop vehicle. There'll be some dumb dialog, a few "obscure" references to game culture that'll be obvious to anyone who's been on the internet in the last 5 years, but I can't argue with the coolness of a giant Mr. Pac Man destroying the city..
Another thing I didn't really take into consideration until just now: I'm really not part of the Pac Man generation; I was born in 1982 and really didn't start playing videogames until the early 90s. I still loved Pac Man, but by that time there was an established story: he had a family, a job, and was unquestionably the good guy. But in '82, it's like "wait, so he's going into THEIR house and stealing their pellets and food, for the sole purpose of finding a mate and creating more Pac Men?" Or, maybe these Space Invaders just want to do their laundry, like in the Futurama episode. Not sure if people thought that back then or not, but I could see people of James and Sandler's age finding that really funny, funnier than I could perceive when most games at least had some backstory: hell, I'm willing to bet that a lot of people who played the original Zelda thought that Zelda was the dude.
So, I dunno.. if it was Seth Rogen and James Franco I don't think it'd make a difference, or Simon Pegg and Nick Frost for that matter. If this WERE directed by Edgar Wright and had pretty much the same dialogue in the trailer, I probably wouldn't have bitched so much. But I agree with ROUS' comment below: I would watch the fuck out of something a little more like Joon-ho Bong's The Host, which focuses more on the creators themselves having to deal with the messes that they made and less about the comedy antics of America's favorite comedy team.. but we can dream..
nice shots of Toronto being destroyed if you're into that
Between how long they draw out the supernaturally predictable Toru Iwatani joke, and how the entire movie is just a series of 80's references, this is basically going to be like paying eight bucks to see a 90 minute Family Guy cutaway joke.
Holy crap Lois, this is almost as bad as that time a mediocre cartoonist managed to embed himself in the pop-cultural landscape
It came close.. it's right above here, but if Joon-Ho Bong's excellent Snowpiercer had been seen by, like, anybody, it could've made for more intelligent (but still fun) monster movies like The Host. I mean, it's not the scientists directly who have to deal with the monster they created (and when they try they fail of course), and for all I know the main family are celebrities on the same level (?) of James and Sandler in South Korea, but it could've happened! Instead we have Chris Columbus, director of nothing good, unless you have a bit of a soft spot for Home Alone and Mrs. Doubtfire.. which, yeah I still cry at the end of both of those. BUT STILL!
Fuck Adam Sandler. I don't want him even appearing on CCTV footage. He doesn't give a fuck, he's not funny, and yet he's still allowed to work on Hollywood.
Jack & Jill should've been the last nail in his coffin.
Zombies don't need coffins.
Sandler was really good in Punch Drunk Love, and plays well at losing his temper in Happy Gilmore, and of course there was the classic oh wait I'm defending Adam Sandler?
Wow. This looks like the spiritual successor to the fucking 1998 Godzilla.
Looks about as entertaining as a big ass full of AIDS.
Rodents of Unusual Size
I automatically pictured a hilarious scene where somehow Adam Sandler's ass gets pumped full of AIDS somewhere in this movie, with a closeup shot of him howling with his mouth in a big "O" WOMP WOMP
My vision is that Kevin James will play the big fat ass, Adam Sandler will play the anthropomorphic AIDS juice. David Spade and Rob Schneider will guest star as two weeping hemorrhoids. It will be the Citizen Kane of Adam Sandler comedies.
Has there ever been a "comedic" actor with more of an absolute zero screen presence than Kevin James? Name one thing he's ever done than couldn't have been accomplished with a mannequin. He makes Will Sasso look like Chris Farley.
He makes Will Sasso look like James Deen.
Paul Blart Mall Cop might be the worst movie I've ever seen. One of my housemate's ex girlfriends rented it while her boyfriend was at work and she was feeling down, and I thought I'd be nice and keep her company. Very sweet girl but seriously, she had the worst taste in movies she rented herself, but loved Pedro Almodovar and other random DVDs of mine that she'd come across too, so she wasn't a Basic Bitch.. but that night it was PBMC and Not Another Teen Movie. The latter was better.
The latter had the amazon from the power rangers movie stark naked for a quarter of the movie, of course it was better.
Holy shit it was the Yellow Ranger! We were both trying to figure it out but neither of us cared enough to imdb it or anything. I miss that girl. We had perfect chemistry and got along and I even helped her move her stuff out when she broke up with dude.. she admitted that she liked me first, but for whatever reason that's against some code I have, even though the guy turned out being a prick and she's in texas now. I'm rambling.
The thing about hipster girls is that they seem like they're perpetually in the process of breaking up with their boyfriend, on account of most hipster guys being spineless dweebs.
I actually did hook up under the same circumstances. Both were living together in my apartment. The guy was some twerp unemployed "artist" who would be gone for a month at a time. The third time that happened, she offered to smoke weed with me out in the common room but wanted to "put on something more comfortable". She came out with the exact same outfit but sans any pants! After some smoking and drinking she complain she hadn't had any dick in a month.
It was 3 days until I moved out so...fuck it.
So awful it makes me depressed. I have to lie down. Schrodinger's rating.
Jesus Fucking Christ.
So, when my guardian angel appeared to me and said "if you want to be rich, write the next Paul Blart movie NOW" it wasn't kidding.
But... my soul... I... I will have to drink a lot to do this, are you sure you're my GUARDIAN angel!?
"Paul Blart : Secret Service" by... Fentin Tarantino...
Paul Blart, decorated mall hero, is asked to guard the president's daughter after the secret service is found passed out drunk at a high level peace talk. Can Blart and Boo-Money, the last unpaid hooker standing, thwart an international terrorist plot to kidnap the First Daughter, who seems more interested in partying than her own safety?

Should I write this, you guys? Should I?
Yes. We can use the money to buy some land in Wyoming or Western Australia and start a sovereign nation.
and the currency of said nation? Boo-Money!

Peter Dinklage gets to do a cynical Hollywood cash grab summer shit flick.
Good for him.
Jet Bin Fever
I groaned when I saw him. Oh well, I bet he got a bathtub filled with cash for doing this.
It's not the first time. I can't think of another actor who played the exact same character in a British film and the dumbed down American remake (Death At a Funeral) who is still considered an Oscar/Emmy-worthy actor in his or her own right.
or anybody, for that matter, except for maybe Ricky Gervais popping up on American Office and things like that..
|Jet Bin Fever |
Adam Sandler is only funny when he's not trying to be funny.
If you are going to see this despite knowing it's shit and you hate everyone involved in making it then you are part of the problem.
Stop giving these guys your money.
Have you been hanging out with Chocolate Jesus again?
oddeye is right but chocolate jesus said it best
aww I love you guys too
I never comment, but this video is evil for making me hunt out the subliminal screen flash I saw at 1:38 http://s27.postimg.org/d48ckzmab/pixelsscreen.jpg
I hate movie tie-in games (seriously I stopped playing Fruit Ninja when they did the Ghostbusters thing) but this one actually looks kinda fun, and the music's pretty cool too. Once again, like the original PIXELS guy, somebody sold out, and good for them I guess, but I can imagine the indie game development world is a bit like most local coffee shops: basically, if you worked for Starbucks, you're not getting a job even if you're a really good barista because you became part of the system. Just don't blow it on blow, guys.
the rage of a thousand old losers, all outraged at themselves for having been twelve, and liked something at that age
adam sandler is a totem for all of the shittiness you want to still love but can't
Change and Adam Sandler, up in a tree...
you try to live a life by standards you can accept because you could never meet the standards of other human beings
Didn't Futurama already do this like fifteen years ago, except, you know, it was actually watchable?
Since this is an Adam Sandler movie, is there a scene where they try to stop Pac-Man by feeding him Subway sandwiches? Pelt Donkey Kong with Coke cans? Escape the Space Invaders by hiding in a McDonald's? Take a break from the onslaught with a delicious Yoohoo?
|John Holmes Motherfucker |
This movie wants to be Ghostbusters so BAD!
