Also, I know TBSveryfunny has kind of ruined it for everyone, but, guys, A CHRISTMAS STORY.
131 comments and not one request for Diner??!
And those opening credits. Hot damn! http://youtu.be/dsSZGTeyM_Q
To each his/her own! And I’ll admit that House of the Devil can seem excruciatingly slow at times, but it does such an awesome job of building tension. And boy oh boy does it pay off! Whereas The Innkeepers just felt so aimless and uninspired and anti-climactic.
I wouldn’t go that far, but she is weak and soft and dressed like baby.
I was sold as soon as I saw that Barry Levinson was at the helm.
YES. And then listen to the corresponding HDTGM podcast, because it’s essential. Spoiler alert: everyone in the film is chronically angry and looks exactly like Sarah Silverman.
PS not to be a killjoy, but you are all going to be very very underwhelmed by The Innkeepers. I’m sorry it had to happen this way, but it’s true.
The House of the Devil, all the way! Same director as The Innkeepers but so much more interesting and creepy.
Also, this collection of notable video game covers that were directly lifted from 80s movie posters/scenes is excellent (videogum is a video game site, right?): http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/tracing/tracing.htm
The viral posters for You’re Next are really neat: http://www.fastcocreate.com/1682864/horrific-reflections-in-comedy-movie-posters-say-youre-next#1
This Dan LuVisi is a little late to the party. We’ve already an IRL Buzz Lightyear in a wig, aka Katherine Chloe Cahoon. Shout-out to ‘batteredgnome’!! http://videogum.com/236412/why-single-girls-want-to-meet-european-men/news/
I’m a firm believer that nothing will ever top Ill Clinton, Not even ArScheerio Paul. http://youtu.be/433-nmcWw8E
You’re being too kind with the Lil’ Kim comparison. I’d say she’s much closer to the female gremlin. http://youtu.be/sjXsULCG7LY
Hold up, now! Joe Mande’s retweeting of corporate messages can be truly brilliant (though not as brilliant as Joe Mande’s Brokencyde Concert Challenge).
Andrew Ti is going to be very, very upset.
Agreed. It feels more like How’s Your News or Gervais’ Derek (laughing with NOT at someone who’s cognitively impaired) than it Does Howard Stern’s Wack Pack (mean-spirited and exploitative).
Has Bushwick replaced Williamsburg as the go-to standard neighborhood when insulting hipsters? SoBro, I think your turn is next!
I know I’m in the minority here, but if you actually watch Derek, it’s not having a laugh at the expense of the developmentally disabled. It’s really well done, I promise! More a showcase of an oddball Christopher Guest-type character than an exploitation of the cognitively impaired. Like this, which we can all agree is wonderful and not mean-spirited: http://vimeo.com/46245944
Love those guys! So weird that it’s a Spike TV production, though.
My buddy went to a show at the Comedy Cellar on Friday and claimed that Dave Chapelle came out for an impromptu set and I completely dismissed him as being a liar or just stupid and confused because that place is tiny and Chapelle is a recluse. But I guess it turns out that my friend is not a liar/stupid/confused and I am just a dick.
But nothing is harder for people to accept than the simple fact that daddy long legs are not in the least bit poisonous. It’s like the Santa Claus myth for adults, as people get so upset when they learn the truth.
YES! Snopes is a goldmine for this stuff. I’ve gotten into the most intense arguments with people who swear that their older brother’s friend went to a haunted house in [Kansas City or Chicago or somewhere else kind of near in the midwest] that’s so scary that if you make it to the end you get your money back.
Oooof. Asperger, not Aspberger. This is why you leave such sensitive material to the pros. http://youtu.be/5nRzh4CJTZs
Duh-LOOOOTH! is good, but I’m partial to the “…and other classmates” line. Also, I wanted to do you all a horrible disservice and channel my inner Seth MacFarlane for a moment: “Robert Asp elementary? More like Robert AspBERGER elementary!”
Sorry. Love that kid!
