  1. To be fair though, that was the first one to go direct to video, so any hope for a good follow-up instantly plummets. Hell, it may have even debuted on SyFy. Did you know there's actually a fourth one too? Crazy...


    True. I made the mistake of watching it when I was bored one day and it definitely played like a Syfy movie.

  2. This isn't really an omission about the film... but I was curious. I heard that Chevy was a douche to Rob Huebel and slapped him really hard after Huebel merely told Chevy that he was a huge fan. I heard that the whole thing happened in front of Jason. I was just wondering if Chevy was a real prick or if the whole thing was blown out of proportion. I saw it awhile back with a list of other reasons Chevy was an a-hole. There was only a small paragraph pertaining this incident and I was wondering what the facts were.


    Here's Rob & Zouks discussing it in NY Mag: http://nymag.com/arts/comics/features/upright-citizens-brigade-2011-10/index4.html

  3. Ugh. Why did I watch this? It wasn't good, it wasn't fun bad, it wasn't in any way enjoyable. It didn't make for a great show either. I love the show, but I have to say the selections have been not great recently. Stick with movies that are bad but entertaining at least, please. They make for better shows as well.


    The thing is, this movie really does force you to ask the question, How Did This Get Made?

  4. I don't think there's any guarantee that any of the original actors will appear in Episode VII.


    And whatever faults JJ Abrams may have, he's actually pretty good about using real sets and staying away from excessive/distracting CGI.

  5. I never spent a lot of time researching the subject, but I always suspected that the ending was not part of the original script. It feels like something a studio exec came up with after wandering onto the set one day.


    'Hey, you know what everyone remembers from the first POTA movie? That crazy ending! That's what this movie is missing. And you know what the best part of that ending was?'


    'Well, the fact that Charlton Heston realizes that this is Earth, and that humanity had already destroyed itself...'


    'No, no, no! The best part of the ending is it involves a national monument! We need an ending that involves a national monument!'


    'Uhh, okay, well I guess...'


    'The Washington Monument? No. Mount Rushmore? No, that's been done. Oh, I've got it! The Lincoln Memorial!'


    'The Lincoln Memorial? Well, I guess we could come up with something...'


    'Oh I've already got it! Mark lands on Earth and the Lincoln Memorial is an ape! Not just any ape, but Tim Roth's character!'


    'But uhhh, we left him trapped in a broken spaceship with no fuel? How could he possibly...'


    'It doesn't matter! Don't you see what a crazy mindfuck that ending will be?'


    'That doesn't really make sense, though.'


    'We've found our ending! Let Tim know.'

  6. It's not awful, but it's not great, either. Ponderous and forgettable in a lot of ways. It also fetishized violence in a way that the comic never did that made me very uncomfortable, but that's a Snyder thing. The source material isn't above reproach, either. Anyone that thought the Squid from Outer Space was going to work on screen wasn't thinking it through.


    I don't think it would be a very fun episode of HDTGM, however.
