Detta movie had some hilarious moments. Many moments that had me laughing, pointing at the screen and screaming “ja!!!!!”. Although it also had some lower points. Example – bargain bin Abigail Breslin. I felt the film had much more potential before she was introduced.
Also, girls who constantly need to be told that they are pretty and fish for compliments.. really need to be added to that list.

Thanks for the new film admins! Viewed because I read ol Bobcat directed it.

I would think if u liked Idiocracy, but wanted a bit more violence, black comedy, and social commentary, this’d b it. Heavy on the satire, I kept thinking it’d break the 4th wall and go full-on meta, yet that never happened. Prbly a good thing.

Good acting, good chemistry between the two protagonists, nothing really seemed cheap, production-wise. Enlisted a few chuckles from me, surprisingly. Dragged in a few parts tho, imo.

On a satirical black comedy level, I guess I found it slightly above average, 6/10. Them hating Juno made me round up;)

This is actually a cute movie. A black comedy along the lines of “Heathers”. The politics are tongue-in-cheek as they go after a couple of over-the-top far-right wing nut jobs, yet they very happily embrace conservative values. If anything, I’d say they was a little mockery going on towards both sides. Besides, if you’re a fan of Space Ghost Coast to Coast you know Bobcat leans to the right in his politics. And then there’s the homage paid to Alice Cooper, a very open and vocal conservative. (can you believe that shit?!) But same with Ozzie and Gene Simmons and Johnny Rotten. A lot of those old rockers have moved to the right. Especially the punk rockers.

I also gave it an extra star for the doff-of-the-cap to Taxi Driver and Jackie Brown. Fans of those two movies should know what I’m talking about. If not, it’s the scene where he’s buying the gun. The gun salesman pretty much delivers the lines, word-for-word of the gun salesman in Taxi Driver… and
from Samuel L. Jackson’s AK-47 pitch in Jackie Brown.

And as always…. Thank you EUM guys. I truly appreciate you!

The rants got a bit tedious, but otherwise it was a pretty entertaining movie. I agree with the sentiment, just found the delivery kinda contrived. Thanks EUM for another great evening.

Very good movie, I liked how starts like some edgy fantasy of the protagonist and then all becomes real on a very absurd way.

Same as music trap artistry right? You’re able to decipher lyrically the slurs and ambiguity but it’s cataclysmic warfare… Your library is solely comprised of hatred
