seeing hyperfangirl with that gun… too soon, guys

To be fair, this video was recorded before the Vegas shooting, and was originally released as one of their theatrical events. I don’t think they intended to make any sort of commentary on the tragedy because when they were filming, there was nothing to comment on.

I wouldn’t say there is nothing to comment on. This is the first depiction of a theater shooting I have seen since the Colorado shooting in 2012. I wouldn’t say it’s too soon but I would say, it’s perhaps in poor taste.

That way you can kill all everything with critique about being “too soon”. Guns in the new Wolfenstein game with nazis in America? TOO SOOOOON. And why is it always TOO SOON from Americans? Why are there never French people who go “Too soon!” about, say, Assassin’s Creed after a few of their number have been culturally enriched again with knives? I’ll tell you why. Because they’re not little children.

This is gonna be great saw the movie just last weekend with a couple of friends so my memory is still fresh.

And he starts of by doing one of my favorit Batman TAS episodes just wunderbar!

I hope Cartman is paying attention to the end of the review for the charity shoutout. The idea of the review is clever. Having the clowns from the two versions of It playing poker while bragging about which It is better to rip on one of the best Batman TAS episodes is pure genius.

Well, really bad timing for the intro there

Raptor Rex

Uh, Doug… you know a lot of people actually are afraid of clowns, right?! You even brought it up yourself that no one would trust the new Pennywise.

MonkeeJuice

I think that would make a great editorial

Raptor Rex

Yeah, I’d like for Doug to tackle that.

Nice “Who’s on First” routine…

… I think the clown was supposed to be scary and funny.
As for the kids splitting up at the end… One kid broke his arm and was taken away by his mother. And you can’t really fight against It unless you have as many people as possible. Plus, there’d been multiple times in the film where they were trying to get away from It, enjoying summer vacation, pretending nothing is wrong in the slightest. Even if Bev was able to skewer his head, I couldn’t really say it’s impossible to understand why they decided to split up like they did.

I was waiting for that Fucking Dance to Come up… You can’t talk about The new “It” Without bringing up something That even Tim Curry’s Version Would think “That is too much EVEN FOR ME!!!”

Tallfi
Guest

I think for future reviews you should stop bringing up people’s race…and casting them by race. Idk at this point you always mention color and I cringe

Lol, first rule of the PC world (Politicly Correct), you cannot talk, infer, mention, imitate or discuss any topic both direct or indirectly involving race or else you are a racist and/or you are a white middle/upper class elitist. Unhappy with overcrowding with your region/country where there are too many people living in one location causing loss of jobs and/or more people on the dole? Well your a racist because i’m sure you said black in between every line, and no you are not allowed to talk about your worries cause your a racist. Fed up of people being labelled… Read more »

It’s sadly still a relevant issue, so I think he should keep mentioning it, we shouldn’t get the chance to forget racism’s role in movies until it no longer has one.

Goldstar
Guest

As long as Hollywood keeps casting characters and actors by their race, it’s fair game Doug (or anyone else, for that matter) to mention it. I’d love to reach a point where race is irrelevant, but unfortunately, we’re not there yet.

What kid played with paper sailboats in the 80’s?

Eyeshot
Guest

There are Blu Ray discs in the 80s?
But seriously, that dancing sequence in the movie was absurd, and it made me understand a little why these two girls next to me were laughing all throughout the screening.

After all this time, I finally found the Channel Awesome studio using nothing but exterior shots from the reviews. One plumbing truck in the background was the break I was looking for ! ( Yes I know I could have just used Google all these years, but that would be no fun )

I freaking loved the movie. There are flaws of course. These are just my thoughts. I loved the video and agree on some points. The thing with the leper, is that it’s not just supposed to be scary for us but for the character as well. We see his fear and we understand even when we’re not scared. Not everything in a horror film is about scaring us, but to see what also scares the characters themselves to sympathize with them. Like the balloons in the miniseries. They’re not trying to make it scary for us, but to show how… Read more »

“It’s” version of “Who’s on First”, Thank you, just Thank you!!!

I thought he’d bring up that Bev left her father for dead (or mortally wounded) and it was never referenced again. That way she has a perfectly valid reason to get the hell out of dodge when they split up in the end. Still a good movie, even if Pennywise did come off as more of an effect than a character

Kaiden

Huh, the chick playing Richie was actually pretty cute.

viktaker

HA the joke it’s on the cemetery opening, because there is ONE (or 2) GOOD transformers movies, and it’s of course the animated movies, suck it that!!

Is Rob the miniseries Pennywise?

Blayshy
Guest

Clipless, huh?

M’Kay.
For once, I’ll watch, but just because I actually know what the fuck you are reviewing beforehand.

Mides
Guest

How magnanimous of you.

Goldstar
Guest

Again, I don’t get why this is surprise for you. The movie is still being shown in theaters. Did you you honestly think that there’d be clips? How long has Doug been doing this?

Also, watch or don’t watch. Doug gets paid either way.

Blayshy
Guest

Hey, I didn’t say anything negative, so what’s up with the thumbs down?

Argol228
Guest

because of your attitude/tone. very condescending

Battails

Somebody edit the “meme me” music over the actual pennywise clip.

“Somehow this seems self-defeating”

I see what you did there.

There’s a small detail that I appreciated in the mini series over the film- In the film Bill is all smiley while making the boat for Georgie and it plays off like “I would love to come sail this with you, but too bad I’m sick” sort of vibe. In the mini series Georgie is clearly bugging a sick Bill and Bill makes the boat as much to get him off his back as it was a gift. That initial “piss off” attitude is something as an older sibling myself can relate to, where I remember being a kid and… Read more »

“The Simpsons After Season 6” tombstone.

Oh, how humble. Also, first time I see someone disliking season 6, 7 and 8.

Goldstar
Guest

Don’t start that mess again. At this point, Doug is probably making that just because people like you bitched about it so much the last time. Just like with the anti-Pokemon jokes, if he’s trolling you, don’t take the bait. Just accept that not everyone shares your views regarding The Simpsons and move on.

Blayshy
Guest

That’s not a mature move to do either.
I really like NC but do you know why a LOT of people hate him?

Argol228
Guest

to risk sound like Rob’s chart guy. buuutcomment image yes. the Simpsons dipped hard after season 6

I really don’t care why; that’s their prerogative. It’s a little thing called the right to one’s opinion, which we all have; however, the people who aren’t fans aren’t required by law to watch his content and so they always have the option to simply not click on his videos if they’re so thin-skinned that they either can’t take a joke or stand a dissenting opinion. The fact that you get all huffy and snippy whenever the guy dares to make a clipless review or take shots at The Simpsons clearly shows us which camp you fall into.

Blayshy
Guest

“Huffy and snippy”?

What??

Goldstar
Guest

Well, it’s his show and his site. He can do whatever he wants to on it. Just like you have the option to not watch if that’s your choice.

People have their own reasons for liking or disliking certain personalities. I neither follow nor care about that kind of drama. I just want to be entertained.

I’m not gonna lie, this review kinda sucked, he seemed to be mostly dumping on it and misinterpreting certain scenes, I liked the ending though

Cirra

I loved the opening scene anyway, but loved it even more when my friend said this about It: Pennywise is very much in the “cosmic horror” vein of monsters. Very supernatural in ability and its reason for doing things (and how it loses power/influence). Part of why it is called ‘It’, the thing is just so far detached from what us mere mortals can sanely consider. Its influence is sprinkled lovingly throughout the town of Derry, like the background tv sounds in the apartment which start talking about ‘playing in the sewers’ and how ‘the sewers are a fun place”.… Read more »

So am I the only one who, when the Critic said he knew who would be able to say which was the definitive version of IT and was tearing off his face…

…was expecting The Dom to show up to do one of his Adaptation Reviews?
