Request thread (with scores!), updates, and random thoughts

Recommended Posts

I don't think there is enough of a mass amount of hate on Ant Man, or it being considered lazy and banal storytelling enough, to justify being on a show dedicated to ripping apart things that are considered the dregs of bad and uninspired movies.

I tore into it on my blog this morning.

:)

The Real Protagonists have covered some things that are pretty obscure. I had never heard of the most recent abomination until they reviewed it for Episode 51. And I was looking forward to hearing them eviscerate Spider-Man 3 despite the fact that I actually like the movie. I think there's enough bad in Ant-Man for them to make a really entertaining episode, though that's obviously up to the hosts.

There's WAY worse comic book movies out there than Ant-Man. In that Catwoman has already been covered  (as has Crow: Wicked Prayer, which technically counts), there are better/worse candidates in films such as The Spirit, Jonah Hex or Son of the Mask, although the latter is (falsely) marketed as a comedy.

Son of the Mask won't be reviewed unless we run out of everything. I so do not ever want to watch that movie.

Jonah Hex and The Spirit are on the shortlist.

One day I'll get off my ass and clean the thread up again to show it to you guys.

I kinda liked Jonah Hex. It moved a little too slow and was kinda boring at spots, but I liked it.

I liked Elektra too. Flawed, but enjoyable. I think I said when I reviewed it for my blog at the time that the movie really needed another 20 minutes to flesh things out.

Fair enough - diff'rent strokes to move the world and all that.

Even so, Ant-Man's better than both of those movies.

When/if you guys do The Spirit, my feedback for that is going to be a mixture of screaming, cursing and crying.

And pretty much the same reaction from me. Brad Bird got me into the character, through "The Iron Giant"  and I enjoyed the comic. It was the first time I felt betrayed by a company not knowing how to adapt a story.

The Core has been mentioned a few times. I watched it last week. It's really bad and I think the Real Protagonists could make a great episode ripping that thing to shreds. I laughed out loud when they were walking around in the earth's mantle.

Hillary Swank is great and elevates anything she's in, but good grief her character was a Mary Sue in this movie. It was ridiculous.

I got Jupiter Ascending from Netflix so I can watch it before listening to the next Tirades episode. :)

Also let me add: The Collection.

I liked the first one (The Collector) but the second was completely absurd from the opening trap onward.

Are you guys still accepting suggestions for other media? Because if so, perhaps you guys could look at any of the Silent Hill games post-The Room, or Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.

At some point in the year, I'll be doing a week of Silent Hill on my blog.  Armageddon would be retreading the same ground too much, I think.

I actually still have the master list from the various iterations this thread has gone through, minus the ones I know we're never going to do and it's generally the first thing I go to when putting together the schedule for the new year.  I can confirm that a few from the list above have made it in this year.  We're looking at 8 or 9 of the movies this year coming from requests.  Not as consistent as last year, but we had some mandatory ones we needed to get to.

As for Judge Dredd, it's never been a huge priority.  It's silly, but neither of us have any real ties to the source material.

Judge Dredd 2012 is pretty bad too. So many things that don't make sense.

I was annoyed right away when I started the DVD. I have no knowledge of the source material, so I had absolutely no idea what was going on at the beginning of the movie. They give no backstory or context. So I went to Wikipedia to understand the world.

Nah.  It looks like Samurai Cop tier, so it's fair game.

All right, then I would like to see you guys review Miami Connection (I better not beat around the bush and just put in my request). 

Another one would be Doctor Mordrid, mainly because Shao Kahn has a stop motion battle against Jeffery Combs.

12 Rounds 2.

Someone at WWE Films watched all seven Saw movies and decided to make a movie with Jigsaw vs. Randy Orton.

Good grief this is bad.

Random thought: Thank you for making the show downloadable on more than just itunes. My account has been having trouble for months and troubleshooting has made me believe that I can go to the store once I get a newer computer. Which will probably need me to download a new system by the time I go from my store to my house.

Suddenly brings a whole new meaning to The Game, Triple H's Reign of Terror with the World Title (October 2002 (handed title)-June 2005 (loses Hell in A Cell match against Batista for the title)).

And that includes a feud with Orton!
