Tea & Grief
- Nov 9, 2009
I'm leaning towards agreeing with this. Not the being ashamed of masturbating, of course, that shit is awesome. But the rest, yes.The_Waspman said:Now, I can't be bothered to go back and check, but I seem to recall Bob giving Interstellar a fairly decent review. Then again, he also gave Man of Steel a fairly decent review when he first saw it, and spent pretty much every video he made since slamming the shit out of it. Now, granted, peoples opinions can change. Especially when it comes to movies. I've completely switched polarity on certain movies I've seen in my life, but this tends to happen over time, and certainly not to generate traffic on the internet (which it seems Bob tends to do a lot these days).
Having said all that, to everyone else who "cant believe" he put Interstellar in his top 20 worst (my personal opinion: much like Inception, its an interesting film, interesting premise, decent watch, disappears up its own arse in the third act, and I'll probably never watch it again), remember, this is the guy who voted Guardians of the Galaxy as the best film released this year, an (in my opinion) empty, vapid, actually quite dull action film which had huge lapses in logic and basic sense. Not really the films fault, because its like almost every other Blockbuster these days. Much like a McDonalds or Masturbation, fun while it lasts, but leaves you feeling empty and ashamed.
The Marvel films that Bob has such a comical hard-on for mostly manage to get a pass by the virtue of not insulting your intelligence too much while delivering a fun spectacle. They're about absolutely nothing, are as vapid as wet farts, and their "characters" arcs never manage to elevate themselves above comic book level. Which is to say, they are for (man-)children. Not to mention that the influx of these films over the past decade have absolutely choked the AAA action market, so that barely anything else of note is released.
Bob is really doing a huge disservice to the medium by elevating these entertainment pieces while simultaneously punishing films for daring to try tell stories that actually say something. You know, like good art is supposed to.
For the record, the best films I've seen this year is most likely John Wick, Interstellar, The Babadook and The World of Kanako.
