Crop And Save
Distasteful, horrible film, this is not what Troma use to be.
Tonight I saw this film. A film I was excited for. I thought Class of Nuke 'Em Hight was a fun film. And them revisiting this I thought would be really great. Right now I'm going to say it straight, I'm not going to just bullshit and say I thought this film was good. It's not good, it's horrible, it's so very bad. And people are going to say "Oh Troma films are meant to be bad" Yes I know that, but this film is offensive and again don't say "Troma films are meant to be offensive, you just got too offended" No. I know these films are meant to be that way, but this film pushed it way too far and was just horrible and disgusting.
This film does jokes that it may think itself are funny, but they are not.
Farts are the one thing that was just not funny about this film. You hear one in the first five minutes, and then throughout the whole film, stupid annoying fart noises are thrown in and I'm thinking to myself "What are we ten years old?" Do the makers really think that an audience will seriously think fart noises every ten minutes or so will make the audience laugh loads? No it's just childish and stupid and was so annoying. But that is the least of the offensive things about this film.
A school shooting joke
Yeah that is right, the writers thought they were so funny by putting in a school shooting joke. No. Here's how the scene goes, all the students are in the cafeteria and then you hear a load of guns shooting, and one student stands up and goes "Don't worry it's just a school shooting, happens all the time! CNN don't even report them anymore" This joke was disgusting and wasn't needed and these type of jokes are never funny.
Movie Theatre Shooting joke
The gang in the film first beat up a woman, and then the leader of the gang then goes "Lets go and shoot up a movie theatre" Writers what the hell were you thinking? Why did you think it was alright to write this in? This is a horrible and disgusting joke, and another one that was not needed. I've lost a lot of respect for the writers and director over this.
There's one scene where a character walks on scene and he's a black character. His name comes up on the screen and underneath him it says "He's black" all the other characters do actually have something written about them and the writers chose to write this. Another race joke is where it stereotypes black people and one character goes "You can't even walk about this neighbourhood in a hoody and eating skittles without getting shot" and another character replies with "You're talking about black people" No this was distasteful and unfunny.
There's three in this film. One where such a thing as "Duck rape" happens. A woman has a duck stabbed into her mouth, this wasn't funny and was just stupid. Another scene where a woman with a giant penis says the line "This isn't duck rape, this is dick rape" and then slaps a guy round the face with her giant dick. Yeah that happens and once again is not funny. And another scene at a party where a guy goes "Maybe if I find a girl drunk enough here, she'll sleep with me" I know this scene doesn't say the word rape in here, but it was putting that across and it was disgusting.
This film is just disgusting, distasteful and tries too hard to be shocking. It's a shame when I had respect for Troma for being a great independent studio that have survived and been around for so long. I just feel that this shouldn't have been made, and this is only Volume 1. Volume 2 is out next year, set straight after the end of this. Lets just hope that isn't as disgusting and disrespectful as this!
Closed for the Season (2010)
I'm only 15 minutes in.
15 minutes and I already hate this movie.
I don't think it's going to get better. It's like the director was like "Act as annoying and stupid as you can and be really unrealistic" This is such a horribly done film and like I've said I'm only 15 minutes in and I'm already hating this. It's such a cringe and horrible to watch. I really don't think I can sit through another hour and 30 minutes.
It's like the director is laughing at everyone who bought this film and sat through the whole film. I want to press stop but I feel I have to see how much worse this film could get. I can't believe I actually bought this film, I now highly regret this.
Robert Rodriguez caring about the kids!
I've always loved Robert Rodriguez for making Grindhouse films, and very violent films and then making films that appeal to adults and children. Now if you go to this film thinking you're going to see the best film of the year, then don't go to see this film. If you go to this film knowing you're going to see a fun film then go and see it. This isn't as good as the other three films, but Robert Rodriguez has still made a good enough film. It's one that does appeal a lot to children, but it's still got the jokes in there for the adults. The whole Aroma-Scope thing is good, but some of the things all smelt the same and you have to scratch quite a bit to get the actual smell. The 3D in this was good, the scenes when there are action were good. Ricky Gervais as the dog is brilliant and he gets most of the laughs in the film, just from some of the lines he says. There's a lot of poop and fart jokes in there, but I guess they are to make the kids laugh. Not the best Spy Kids film yet, not as good as the first three, but still one that I did enjoy! And there's a hint of Spy Kids 5, but we will just have to wait and see what happens.
The Being (1983)
The Being is one of the worst 80's horror films.
The only reason I checked out this film and bought it on VHS is because I saw a poster for it in The Monster Squad. I thought that it was going to be really good, but no was I highly wrong. One of the worst 80's horrors I have ever seen. You don't see the monster enough, and when you do all your pretty much see is it's mouth or arms. The acting was very weak, the people didn't even seem like they were trying. Some of the gore was alright in this, but this was just a big let-down of a monster horror film. I found myself getting very bored when the same monster attack kept happening over and over again, and the victim always had the same reaction. There's some strange dream sequence at one point, that was so pointless and stupid and really didn't need to be in the film. A very bad disappointing 80's horror, that I really thought was going to be good. If you're ever thinking about watching this film don't bother!
