About thecinemasnob

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. I actually read this book a couple of years back and have to say it was a very faithful adaption (except it concluded rather sooner than the book, but I won’t spoil how & why). Very much reminded me of Apollo 13, with no real “Villain” (even where the NASA Director was being a jerk, you understood why). And although I saw it in 2D, there were scenes where I thought “I bet this would be amazing in 3D!” (I’m thinking of the weightless scenes especially).

  2. Does he finally destroy the earth with his Illudium Pu-36 Explosive Space Modulator?

    Saw the movie on Saturday and it was great liked it just liked you guys(well my only nitpick was that it felt like they just shoved Donald glovers character just to act wacky but that’s a minor nitpick I still loved all of the movie even better then hotel translyvania 2). I really don’t think you should give Brian a nacho bel grande he’s on a diet and he needs to exercise better and o don’t think you giving him fats will work out. It’s funny that you say a flus spreading cause there’s a flu spreading at my sisters school and at my school in my classroom and in my school so guess your not alone.

    Also one last final thing I looked up that joe Rogers chili from Springfield and I can see why theres a lot of names on the wall the things really not that big and if I liked chili then I could probably eat that all and get my name up on that wall(but you need to send me a picture of where your name is so if I every finish or eat that whole thing I can put my name right next to yours and Brian’s).

    • I felt if any character was weak, it was Kristin Wiig’s character whose role seemed mostly to be “Stand listening to technobabble and look disapproving” – most of the time she didn’t even do the press conferences, which you’d think would be her job!

      And as for the question posed two above: Which character do you mean? and No!
