I’m confused; wasn’t there supposed to be a Suicide Squad review with re-enactments coming?

Is that being saved to be released just before Wonder Woman now?

The Real Silverstar

That was a live event. I don’t recall anyone saying that was going to be put up on the site.

It’s coming for the next full-length review.

It’s PREMIERING tomorrow at a special screening. Even the original promo said May 3rd. They wouldn’t call it premiering then if it was being uploaded tonight. It’d cheapen the main attraction of the event to upload it the day before

Wow I was thinking about this movie the other day and how NC would review. I was mostly thinking what he would think about the actress who played Betty. Thinking That maybe she was a better Betty then Rosie O’ Donald.

Rosie is the best betty ever!

“unfunny bullshit that no one gives a crap about”
That’s kind of the point.

To be…. “fair” the guy who keeps pointing out that he’s put into place a plan to eliminate the dinosaurs, and no one else caring and dismissing him, is a pretty nice allegory to how many people react to present-day climatologists saying how our activities are harming our planet and by consequence our civilization. We’re warned about this, constantly, and people continue to dismiss them and tell them to shut-up. Granted the “message” is ruined since this guy is *actively* doing something to harm their civilization as opposed to it just being a consequence of normal human activity and the… Read more »

except we have a reason to tell these climatologists to shut up. First of all it’s not clear how much information is genuine and how much is manipulated to satisfy agendas. Yes it’s obviously polluting the environment is bad but exactly what kind of effect it’s having and how much of our current weather is natural isn’t certain. But then again the scientists claiming it’s not a thing at all could also be payed off by corporations to say that as well. So both sides of the argument are probably being payed to argue for their side rather than offer… Read more »

The science is in. Global warming is real. Temperatures are higher than they’v e been in entire the lifetime of the earth. Water levels have risen. Ocean acidity is up, we’ve killed the coral reef, driven countless species to extinction, and created garbage that will *never* biodegrade. Just look at a picture of New York from 30 years ago compared to today and you’ll see the difference after they passed a lot of measures to clean things up.

It’s really not up for debate any more. Global warming is real, but we can work to fix it.

Can you talk about the MTV series Good Vibes and Daria? On a side note, I mention this all before, why don’t you review a classic horror like this one I’ve finally found after all these years after just seeing a few scenes of it and never knowing how it ended. It’s called Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama. You might like it. Maybe. Also what do think of these TV series shows called: John Doe Forever Knight The Misfits (British Show) Misfits of Science (Movie and series) and The Zeta Project (I think some of these shows are like… Read more »

He’s not reviewing any of those things. Give up the dream.

You’re just a parasite; you just won’t go away and you keep eating and eating at all that we love until they die. Seriously, how long have you been posting this bullshit now? A year? Two years? I’ve lost count.

When does the WWE show up?

astrodomekid
Guest

I knew he would go to a BioDome reference eventually. In fact, I’m surprised he didn’t go into an all-caps rage just from finding out Stephen Baldwin was in this movie.

Blayshy

He’s less awful than Pauly Shore.

It was John Cho. Not Kal Penn

First of all, Kazoo didn’t meet Fred and Barney until after they got married and had kids. And he was Banished to their world to help who ever freed him. So, he is allowed to interfere. Second, Fred and Barney met Wilma and Betty when they were working in a hotel and Bellboys and Cigarette girls. But on a side note, did Rosie O’Donnell really play that female gorilla in the Cartoon Movie “Disney’s Tarzan”? Last but not least, when was Wilma’s family rich?

MLPFan91
Guest

Yes, Rosie O’Donnell did voice Terk in Tarzan. No, it is never explicitly mentioned in any other media of Flinstones.

First of all, the alien’s name is Gazoo, not Kazoo. Second, if you’re going to nitpick about the live action movies not being canon to the original series, then you might as well complain about how The Flintstone Kids series contradicted *everything* about the original show with Fred, Wilma, Barney and Betty knowing each other as little kids, Fred owning Dino as a puppy, Mr. Slate being one of the kids’ peers and Barney and Wilma having previously unmentioned siblings. Canonically speaking, Flintstone Kids shouldn’t have existed at all unless it was just going to be Fred and Barney. What… Read more »

Save your nitpicks for good movies. There are so many bigger issues with this movie that you just look silly.

You review a movie with Mark Addy and didn’t make a Robert Baratheon/Game of Thrones joke?!

Blayshy
Guest

Sometimes, he prefers not to do the obvious joke.

Hardback247
Guest

That wasn’t a bird in the “video camera.” That looked like a Pteranadon.

mduncan50
Guest

Really? Your rebuttal to his statement that it was a bird was that it was a dinosaur with a 23 foot wingspan inside of a tiny camera?

Hardback247
Guest

Really? Mistaking Harold’s actor for Kumar’s actor? And saying that Rosie O’Donnell was cast as a chimp, when it was actually a gorilla? Why doesn’t he ever look these things up to make sure he’s not making a mistake??

mduncan50

Because if he did, then what would little trolls like you have to do with your lives?

Cirra

No Game Of Thrones joke? Fred Flintstone’s played by King Baratheon here.

So let me get this straight: There was great casting for the Flintstones couple but bad casting for the Rubble couple in the first movie and great casting for the Rubble couple but bad casting for the Flintstones couple in the second movie? Back when this movie came out, my brother pointed out the calamari joke doesn’t make sense because calamari is made from squids not octopi. I wouldn’t be surprised if the win/lose lever is similar to a tactic used in actual casinos. Not with actual magic like that lever, but games are probably fixed in a similar way.… Read more »

I have the answer to all your questions…… it was in the script

JamiSings

I’ve ordered calamari before where they gave me both squid and octopus. I don’t know why, but there you have it, some people think octopus is calamari.

Good god this was painful to watch even as a review and OMG is that Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson) from Criminal Minds as Chip, funny that you kept pointing out kill faces.

ErichoTTA
Guest

Yes! I’ve been waiting for you to review this awful movie since you came back! I even saw this high rated comment on YouTube that wanted you to do it! Thank you so much! I’m so glad you referenced how she still thinks Fred is a thief! That’s what I’ve been waiting for all these years!

the movie was terrible but god I love jane krakowski

One theory is the Flintstones takes place after a nuclear apocalypse that mutated lizards into dinosaurs.

JamiSings

Except there was a Jetsons Meet The Flintstones movie that proves that isn’t true.

That wasn’t Kal Penn, that was John Cho.

Tiago

I was never a fan of the show (or movies, or games or anything related), but the 2016 DC series (by Mark Russell and Steve Pugh) is pretty neat.
They address a lot of social issues through the lenses of the Flintstones and what it was supposed to be the norm in, well, caveman times (such as monogamy which is a major issue in the comics).
It doesn’t necessarily serve as a prequel as it is a reboot but it is quite possibly the only thing I’ve liked out of the franchise.

Moon Spirit
Guest

Yup, though I was a kid and liked the Flintstones, even I never watched this movie as I found it unnecessary. And from what I’ve seen now, good god I’m glad I missed out.

Kazoo was unintentionally unsettling, and seeing Alan Cummings again as the caveman ancestor to Mick Jagger was baffling. And seeing Fred Flintstone proposing to Wilma in a sea cucumber outfit was more “what the hell?” shenanigans.

And goddammit Doug, I’ll never unsee the homo context you’ve inserted in this review b/c of the movie’s unintentional gay subtext.

TragicGuineaPig

-10:31 – IT’S BECOME A HENTAI!

Billy Collins

Ummm. That’s not Kal Penn. That’s John Cho. I can’t wait to see what this gaffe will be placed on the next top 11 fuck ups list.

Nami Lazuli

Oh the pain. Seriously who asked for this movie?

LiamA
Guest

-6:45 That ‘gay old time’ wasn’t necessary since Alan Cumming is already gay.

Goldstar
Guest

The line wasn’t changed; It was always “Gay old time”. Originally, the word gay meant happy. Of course, the word has since taken on a different meaning.

“You know, aliens, dinosaurs, and cavemen all exist at the same time. Why should this bother me? It doesn’t, next shitty scene.”

Also my reaction to the latest Ice Age movie.
