trailer for Disaster Movie
ummmmm....what in fuck's cunt was that?
seriously...what in the shit is wrong with this picture?
THEY ARE PARODYING MOVIES THAT HAVE BEEN OUT FOR A LITTLE OVER A MONTH. THEY ARE PARODYING MOVIES THAT AREN'T EVEN OUT YET.
word of advice; having a character from another movie show up, say something from said movie, than have something fall on them/hit them/having them hit something is not the recipe for a well written joke.
this, coupled with VH1's I Love the New Millennium, is the death of culture. a savage, violent, scary demise...the kind of killing that makes you look up to the smolder-painted sky with the one eye that hasn't been forcibly removed from your socket, take in one last breath, and come to the realization that God is not there...and he probably never was. we've come to the point where we are referencing references... paying homage to collage works.
It used to take a lot more than just saying "hey, remember the part in the movie where that guy did that stuff on things?" to get a laugh out of people. it used to take more than merely relying on people's awareness of pop culture to get them to laugh...you used to have to have some kind of skewed take on what you were referencing. that's what GOOD parody does...bring the absurdity out of the seemingly in-absurd. all these films are doing (Epic Movie, Superhero Movie, Date Movie, Meet the Spartans, and now Disaster Movie) are copying the characters/people from other movies and television shows, hoping that the audience will laugh because hey, they recognize what that's from, then having stuff fall on them. there are no jokes... no commentary... there is nothing. it's cynical opportunism at the most base of levels.
alright think that's enough.
EDIT; just found this;
