Is it me or is this year just chock full of bad movies? I'm usually pretty good at avoiding them but this year I've seen so many stinkers.
Halloween Kills
Black Widow
Army of the Dead
Demonic
Free Guy
Gunpowder Milkshake
Jolt
Candyman
Willy's Wonderland
Coming 2 America

bad movies endless trash GIF


Edit: Also, on the subject of Jamie Lee Curtis' reference to BLM, I don't think it's necessarily off the mark. Definitely not a politically correct thing to say (I'm sure she's probably apologized for it by now), but not entirely wrong. That said, the movie undoubtedly fell flat on its face with its messaging so that did not do her statements any favors lmao

In any case, it resulted in some hilarious editing by Mike lol

It's funny they talk about people being critical of the monologues. That was a big criticism of mine watching it as well. It's clear Flannigan had things to say but it came at the expense of reality. It was overwrought.

I enjoyed if for the most part, but yeah it fell apart a bit towards the end. I feel like this could have been a classic if slowed down and covered over two seasons.

Also nice to see Mike and Jaye getting on well. For a while it seemed like they had fallen out.

I think they're a bit too harsh on it. The fact that Mike felt the need to ask if Ghosbusters 2016 is better is absolutely insane. Thankfully, both Rich and Jay were quick to answer "no"... but it's still an absolutely insane question. GB2016 is a 3/10 at best, while Afterlife is a 7/10 at best IMO - they're simply not comparable in terms of quality.

That said, on the other side of things, a lot of people are probably a little too positive because of the memberberries. The Off-Topic thread was filled with "OMG I LITERALLY CRIED" type posts until someone posted the RLM video lol

At the end of the day, who cares what RLM think, it's just their opinion. I watch them for their entertainment value. They have hated heaps of movies I've liked, still laugh at their videos even if I disagree with what they say.

I'd never take RLM or anyone else as gospel on any given movie, but they are always thoughtful in their analysis. Watching that review last night was a bit of a buzzkill after some of the impressions here. I wasn't expecting it to be great but they really tore it apart.

I wouldn't know what they said about Afterlife and I won't know until January. LOL
But if you were excited and planning to watch it or excited about any movie, maybe watch it and form your own opinions rather than watching reviews first.

Excited isn't an apt descriptor. Like most movies, Ghost Busters didn't need a sequel. And of course I'll form my own opinions once I watch it but it will have to hit a streaming service first.

I could have sworn they already talked about this? They do joke about Dune at the beginning so I think that'll be next.

I don't remember all of those cheesy scenes that came straight out of the 50's and 60's to be so... cheese.

Then again, all the good scenes seemed to stick out more with remembrance to me from watching that movie a lot as a kid.
