Dear Whitey McCrackerBread

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , on 02/14/2017 by McCutcheon

Dear White People was a decent movie that, for some reason, is now being adapted into a show. Aside from how lazy that is, the trailer for it, and at least one of the writers, isn’t doing it any favors.

I don’t care if people watch it or not, but BY GOD will I exercise my right to complain about it.

Multiple Man Love

Funny how we keep having to relive Mystique, Wolverine and Magneto being all moody and misty in ten different movies when they’ve got a GOLDMINE of a character to mess with. You know what, Fox? Just DON’T. You’ve done enough damage and my soul can’t take anymore.

SINGHAM!

Bollywood is the Hindi Hollywood. Yeah, can you believe that? They produce more films each year than Americans do. Do they suck as often? Well, that’s up to you. Singham is one of those movies and it’s needs to be thoroughly examined. Within seven minutes or so anyway.

Breaking Up With Iceman

It’s been a long road for my gay, iced-up homey but me and he are just gonna have to call it quits. I hate to say it, he just doesn’t do it for me anymore. I’ve moved onto guys who KNOW how to use their sweet ice powers and set their aspirations higher than some pencil pushing accountant!

I’m Sick of Hearing About The Next Big Thing

Topic by Bryce Waller, who “likes his ladies like he likes his Mercedes” whatever that means.

We’re overloaded with information these days and it’s taking the fun out of entertainment, which is, in fact, entertainment’s main goal. We can slow down. There’s a better title in there somewhere but I can’t think of it.

I’m Not Done with Suicide Squad

Though they should have been taking out despotic rulers guarded by super assassins, the #Sqwad spent their time accidentally meeting up with the Joker for a few minutes and going to the Enchantress light show. Maybe next time?

Suicide Squad was Cool. Maybe Too Cool

I think this was my longest video ever before I got to editing this beast. So many conflicting thoughts on what is and what shoulda been. Ultimately we got what everybody inferred from the original picture released; Garbage Pail Expendables.

I’m “Too Critical” of The Bourne Movies

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , , on 08/01/2016 by McCutcheon

I love a good movie every now and then that gives me a hero worth admiring for their attributes beyond the borders of reality. But c’mon man, not like this.

Be it the camera man suffering from Parkinson’s or the cold and stagnant dialogue of “Special Director in Charge of Extraditious Affairs” and all nine of his cronies trying to track down Matt Damon from the control center, these movies annoy me.

The Neon Demon/Tickled/Star Trek Beyond

This video may as well have been titled “Me VS Technology” because I have had one stretched-out, horrible time trying to get this new computer and editing program to work for me.

Remember that line in Se7en when Morgan Freeman tells Brad Pitt, “If John Doe’s head splits open and a UFO should fly out, I want you to have expected it”? That’s the advice I give you if you watch The Neon Demon and Tickled. And Star Trek Beyond? Well, it was definitely Star Trek.

 

GOING THE DISTANCE: How Sylvester Stallone created a film Icon and why he still matters

Written by Jacob Ethan Sapp!

When Rocky hit the scene in 1976, it introduced the world to the one of the most iconic characters in the history of cinema, won the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director, and became America’s favorite underdog story. It’s almost crazy to think about how well received the original film was nearly 40 years later.

There were no early warning signs, this movie just struck out of the blue. Produced on a modest budget (by the same team Winkler-Chertoff pairing that produced every subsequent film), and starring a virtually unknown lead actor/Writer in Sylvester Stallone, this film could easily have been overlooked as an amusing, but insignificant character piece in a year otherwise dominated by Scorsese’s seminal masterpiece, Taxi Driver, or the truly terrific, Network. The film didn’t boast cutting edge effects, a big-name composer such as John Williams, (who at the time was probably working on a little picture he assumed nobody would ever watch called Star Wars), there were no big action set pieces, or shocking twists. It’s not a glamorous affair, as such Rocky’s success hinged on the old-school fundamentals of great storytelling, genuinely terrific acting, and a steady-handed director. Continue reading
