Brad Jones portrays The Cinema Snob, a pretentious film snob who is stuck with reviewing Z-Grade exploitation flicks of the past. I'm a big guy. For you.


  1. Oh! I’ve never seen you guys review two movies in one video. While I may be interested in seeing the Glass Castle (probably next month), I’m SO not interested in seeing Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson on the big screen together. I’ll come back later when/if I’ve seen The Glass Castle. The trailer made it look really upbeat overall. O.O

    I can’t wait to see Logan Lucky this upcoming weekend. Did you mention a spoiler there though? I hope not. O.O

  2. Save your time & money and just buy the book. The Glass Castle novel is a 4 star, required reading in high school, level of storytelling; I love this book and have read it a million times: The trailer just made me sick because all it showed was potential flushed down the toilet. Brad didn’t talk about the overt laziness and selfishness of the mother (Sweet Jesus, that reveal at the end of the book) so I assume she was shafted in order to focus on the father in the film.

    That about face at the end of the story. Yeeaah, that was in the book. I disagree with that ending- It’s real so you can’t change it and Jeannette Walls knows more than anyone else what an evil douche her father was capable of being but it seems less about coming to terms with the wickedness of her father existing right alongside his wondrous strengths (taking his daughter Demon Hunting so she was no longer scared of the monsters under her bed; teaching her to swim in a hot springs without an edge[that was a POSITIVE- how did they fuck that up? The hot springs was supposed to be scary because he was teaching her to be strong; How scary is a pool?]) and more “Oh that Rex. Chuckle. What a card.” A man who pimps out his 13 year old daughter is not a card; He is a monster. The novel is fully aware of itself and is on the man’s side, or against him, in all the right times but that epilogue puts a bad taste in my mouth for that conclusion. The man was a mess who’s contrarian nature exacerbated his unresolved issues; He needed help that he (almost) never got: That’s not something to be toasted.
