On one hand, how dare you talk shit about Equilibrium. On the other hand, whenever Ben Shapiro says "Facts don't care about your feelings", Equilibrium comes to mind. Be careful what you wish for, Benji.But if we're talking what movie aggravated me the most with its stupidity, I genuinely struggle to think of a better candidate than Equilibrium (2002). Holy fuck that movie felt like a first draft written by a 12-year old who got halfway into their first Philip K Dick novel, but then got bored and watched the fight scenes from The Matrix instead. And then wrote out whatever delirious shreds of memory still lingered in their head 3 hours past their bedtime after chugging 3 litres of coca-cola.
It's not just that the world is badly thought out, but the writing constantly undermines the entire premise, which itself in turn is so staggeringly juvenile I'm astonished it was made into a feature length movie. And then they throw in that stupid looking gun martial arts which looks so ridiculous I burst out laughing every time they did it. And the fact that the movie takes itself 100% seriously only underlines it further.
Equilibrium nearly did make my choice though just for it's premise. Literal Gun Fu experts designed to kill people who have FEELINGS....wut?!Sometimes I think Hollywood makes bad video game movies on purpose in order to discredit video games.
Also who In their right mind thought giving Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards a biopic was a good idea? He sucked so badly the IOC introduced the Eddie The Eagle rule to prevent the likes of him from competing at the Olympics.

If you want something really juvenile, watch Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever.
I don't about the movie version (I highly doubt it and never heard of such a thing), but OG video game version is based off the martial arts actor, Bolo Yeung. In DD II: The Revenge (NES), there are Abobos' with the mullet and evil goatee, and are just called Bolo.Maybe you can confirm this; was it true that Abobo was based on Abdullah the Butcher?
Makes sense, and equally cool. Yang Sze is criminally underappreciated.I don't about the movie version (I highly doubt it and never heard of such a thing), but OG video game version is based off the martial arts actor, Bolo Yeung.

I do think that movie is one of the great cinematic atrocities of all time, but it is in no way the stupidest film ever made. It's far too meta and self-aware (not in a good way) and avant garde to really warrant that label. It's an infinitely more interesting film to talk about than watch, but I have to give it some credit for being really out there and kind of clever in a really really twisted way.Freddy Got Fingered
Haven't seen Monster Man, but how do you "ironically" like something like Shoot Em Up? The movie itself is already super self-aware and dumb trash, and the only people I think could sincerely think it's cool are 12 year olds who've never seen an action movie before, and don't realize what purposely ridiculous action looks like.I still say Monster Man or Shoot Em Up is worse, but nobody likes those in anything but an ironic sense.
It's been too long and I don't remember everything. But this goes all the way back to Bob's late Screw Attack days and transitioning into into his early Escapists days when he just got hired around that time. Point being he liked the movie for "ironic" reasons, and felt it was a shame that nobody went to see it. He thought the movie deserved more recognition. He didn't make a full video about it, but it was in a different review where he talks about it for about 40 or 50 seconds. Like I said before, I don't have the time or patience, so you're probably going to have to go hid YouTube page and look all the way in the back for that one. If you can find it.I feel like I'm tempting fate here but... what is the context? I'm legit curious.
