On the first watch The Big Short makes for a good impression.
With a second watch, in the age of gaseous hair mounds, the film’s quite prescient.
Making a film about the boring ol’ financial crisis is a potentially foolish endeavour, as we all have attention spans of spanners. No-one says the word spanners anymore. People used to say “that’s blokes a spanner”. I don’t know why being a spanner is a bad thing, I just know that it is. If you do decide to look up spanner pictures, my preference is those adjustable ones, you know the ones? Adjustable an’ that. Now that’s a very fine spanner.
“Things to watch due to the social and cultural insanity of today”.
I’m sure many of you would have missed this film, as typing “God Bless America” isn’t on your daily web browsing agenda. Maybe it is? I don’t know who’s reading this? Who are you people!
Is it lazy to reference similar things? Bah… Let’s be lazy. It will inform your peculiar tastes immediately. God Bless America has a touch of Kick-Ass, Network, Leon and, of course, Idiocracy. Plenty of people reference Falling Down as that’s the most obvious… Not us. Oh no, we won’t reference that!
Did that help pique your interest? Go on you naughty tyke, on your way, go enjoy the film. If you haven’t watched any of the above films…. You’ve got some work to do. You can always return later. Good luck.
Super franchise! All your favourite heroes! Running around toget- wait, anti-heroes! A bunch of bastards running around together, doing things!
We got the best actors and CGI and no scriptwriters and the sexy outfits! Battles… YOU WANT BATTLES! We got all the battles. BANG! Franchise! All of your favourites appears, such as “shooting gun man” and “sexy lady!” The word “franchise”. This isn’t a film, it’s an event!
You sir! Oh yes, and you Madam! Are you interested in a new Nintendos?! Come, gather ye round, where I shall talk about nothing in particular, about a thing that isn’t out for a few months! Who knows ey’? WHO KNOWS?!
Can you taste that… it’s excitement. Excitement all over the shop! Oh, and the sound of a thousand keyboards duplicating carefully worded press-releases about a thing you can buy! See… I’m doing it right now. Blib, blib, blib… blob, blob, blob. Blib.
So we’ll talk about some boring facts before descending into opinions, shrugs and possibly, hope. Mostly shrugs.
A bit of the ol’ hippidy-hops. I’m afraid we missed out on the wholesome Xmas and New Year songs. Sorry.
What you need is a nice scratchy irritable sound to compliment this bleak cold beginning to a year. There’s something strangely addictive about this racket. Would make for a good ringtone, especially in a nice quiet library.
Before DOOM we had: –
Not into the man-talking music? That’s ok… I also had some man-shouting trapped in my head. Take your pick. It’s like a popular song this! Shocking.
ROYAL BLOOD – FIGURE IT OUT
Lastly I’m happy to report Run the Jewels 3 came out over the Xmas period. Hooray! It’s good too. Sign up from their website the freebie.
We review the review? Sounds stupid. You might have a point…
It took me 3 attempts to get into Dark Souls. You could correctly argue that’s the games fault. You could even argue that’s my fault for not getting it. Whatever the reason I changed my mind about the game some time later.
Time is a better judge of character then a snap opinion.
We have an exciting, crash-bang-wallop start to Season 2 of InputError. A website you can trust.*
I’m exceedingly happy to note you’ve not only returned, but dressed up for the occasion. You look absolutely marvellous today and that bow-tie really brings out your eyes. Now the horrific end of year awards show has passed we can get back to business.
