Between this and Garfield's terrible accent and Vince Vaughn's general schlubbishnes, I refuse to believe this dumb lump of film has any worth besides being mocked.


I read a bunch of fawning for it one day and looked at a youtube video of one of the action scenes and it was so cartoonish it was beyond even like videogame violence. I can't believe anyone could even take that movie seriously.

It's actually not bad. It suffers form Full Metal Jacket syndrome. It's basically two movies divided in the middle and the first half is far superior to the second half. And ya, the action has some camp to it. However, Desmond Doss was indeed such a maniac that they actually left out some of the things he did because they figured audiences would think they were too unbelievable. fwiw he actually did swat away a grenade and kick another one, which ended up wounding him so badly that he was discharged. Doss was the ultimate cracker from West Virginia or wherever he came from. If you look up clips of Doss, Garfield does a pretty good job sounding like him. Although I'm not sure that sounding like the actual person is that important in a movie when you aren't playing someone famous, especially when that person's accent is such a distractingly rube-cliche accent.

Vince Vaughan has no business in that film though. He's nothing but a distraction in anything he's in these days. The last time I sorta liked him in a movie was the one about that weirdo that died in Alaska.

So I watched T2: Trainspotting with very low expectations, but it was great. Several legitimate laugh-out-loud moments, all at the hands of Carlyle's Begbie. It was a wee-bit depressing though. The passage of time sucks and all that. Nevertheless, it was very cool to catch up with all of those characters 20 years later.

Oh brother.

OMC, if Mel Gibson makes a stupidly violent movie about Roman soldiers who time travel to the Civil War to fight a bunch of vikings, are you seeing it?

Here's a further twist: he's filmed drunkenly hurling violent racist slurs from a cab at people on the street a week before it's released.

Christian Bale got fat again. I wonder if he has his role after that lined up where he has to be jacked.

horsefeathers no. Literally anyone else could do what Gibson does, ideally minus the complete scumbaggery.

Seriously, why does he get a pass?

if there was a movie whose premise was

a) the romans acquire time travel
b) use it to go to the future
c) specifically, the Eastern United States circa 1861-1865
b) to fight the vikings
e) who also acquired time travel and
f) use it to intentionally go to the future
g) and also chose the Eastern United States circa 1861-1865

how do you look away?

If it's made by an awful human being. If Woody Allen's next movie was Sammy Sofa Gets Murdered by Blowjobs I'm still not gonna go see it.

I guess I should have made the question, "at what point do people who saw a Mel Gibson-made movie in 2016 NOT go see a Mel Gibson-made movie?"

Hacksaw Ridge is on HBO right now and all I've seen are random explosions on what is clearly a sound stage and lots of soldiers shooting each other then dying. No story that I can piece together

That’s generally what happens when you start a movie halfway. As I said earlier, I think the first half of the movie (which have no violence at all) is the reason the film scored so high among critics. That’s where your plot is.

It really does remind me of Full Metal Jacket. The first half is something altogether unique and then the second half it just becomes a generic war movie.

That’s generally what happens when one commits Hara-Kiri.

That was General Ushijima and he did do that when Okinawa fell.

Ushijima refused a personal plea from the American General Simon Bolivar Buckner Jr. to surrender. Instead, hearing the sounds of the systematic destruction of positions nearby on Hill 89, Ushijima and General Cho committed ritual suicide (Seppuku), each disemboweling himself with a short sword followed by his beheading by his principal aide.


You don’t think Mel would pass up the opportunity to show that, do you?

Showtime is showing commercials nonstop for some Western type movie with Guy Pearce as this Mormon looking preacher, Dakota Fanning as a woman that he is accusing of being a witch, and Jon Snow as this rube that is defending her. Thinking of watching it just to see how bad he butchers attempting a 19th century Western American accent.

So far it looks like a ripoff of The Piano. Mute single mother with a little daughter who speaks for her.

Guy Pearce is good. Scary character.

Whoaaaa, this is one of the darkest and most twisted movies I’ve seen in a long, long time. It makes me uncomfortable and that takes quite a lot.

Pretty sure this director watched a Nicolas Winding Refn film and was like, “hold my beer”.
