Centurion

This week MovieBob takes a peek at Piranha 3D and wraps up with the epic Centurion.

Watch Video

People didn't complain because you critisised the Expendables.

They complained because you insulted people whio went to see it.

You see the difference between those 2 things?

Nice to know Centurion is good though I'll have to pick up the DVD sometime.

In this thread: People continue their discussion of the expendables from last week because no one knows how to let anything go.

Was expecting more of a review this week. I understand that nothing good came out, but still...

Centurion looks intresting, Piranha 3D not so much, i like the idea of seeing Vicy killing legions of fish but i've been disapointed before, besides i'm one of those people who like a good story in there films.

I think you've missed the general point of the criticism you've received over your Expendables review.
Just to reiterate: it's not that people thought that the Expendables were prone to negative comments, it's just that people who liked it don't like getting name-called and insulted, which you did through that and even this video.
Oh, and your reasons for liking Piranha are more than a little questionable. You seem to embrace the film the best point of which for you is nudity.
Other than that, the review's alright.

Piranha looks good in a so bad its good sorta way.

Pirahna 3D looked terrible at first glance. May have to check it out.

You called it right.

Lets hope for a almost serious discussion. (I know it's hard people)

Bob: First things first, I'm not a jock. Almost exact opposite. Please stop using that persona as a way of insulting people who disagree with you.

And yes, as Axolotl says - I didn't not like your review purely because you stated the film was bad. I didn't like your 'review' because all you did was insult people who liked it, and pretty much gave the entire movie-going public a telling off for going to see the bigger movie.

And nice going on the whole 'Piranha 3D is better because Kelly Brook gets in on with another chick', your opinion's starting to slide further down my scale of critic's I should listen to.

So....... essentially a good film is just tonnes of blood and a pair of tits?

Next week, Bob reviews "Backdoor Housewives 6: Shagged & Stabbed"

Great review Bob, don't bother with the "whining" done over the review of expendables, some people are just so ridiculously easily offended... God forbid someone says something that you disagree with ON THE INTERNET!

Anyway, might check Centurion out, honestly I was afraid it'd just be ANOTHER one of those movies trying to chip in the King Arthur legend with the 9th Legion, like we need another one of those...

A Good BAD film, you know like in the weird "Ed Wood" kinda way...

Wait... I'm pretty certain more than one of those guys in Expendables qualifies as a trained monkey.

So if the Expendables had some hot lesbian intercourse, it would have been alright? For someone who gives credibility to his opinions by lavishing hate all those low-culture 'frat boys', you certainly do your best to appeal to them.

For your next review do you think you could put your brains back in your pants please?

If Stallone had been wearing a pair of fake breasts throughout the movie would you have enjoyed it?

(Why am I getting weird mental images of a "To Wong Foo" sequel?)

Glad to see I'm not the only one who heavily enjoyed Piranha 3D.

Stopped watching when he brought up the two female leads.

For fucks sake either invest in bromide or get a girlfriend.

No one cared about your review of the expendables, they cared about being badly insulted for liking it.

I was right. Bob did like Doomsday! Well...my day is now complete. 2 Straight weeks it has been mentioned.

I wasn't even aware another Neil Marshall film was out. I will likely have to go see it now.

Piranha 3D...not really interested, maybe I'll see it when it's out on DVD. Maybe.

Evidently his favorite film of all time is Caligula.

That indeed.
If a critic cannot separate the movie from the audience, then s/he probably shouldn't review movies.

Yes, I recognize that demographic sales drive movie production; that still doesn't give anyone the right to automatically assume that every living soul that saw the Expendables did it because they "loved the film" as an action-junkie "douchebag".

In short: To make assumptions about the audience in such a way is unprofessional; calling them names is childish.

Notice that I did not excuse "The Expendables" as a film from criticism. It isn't. Nothing is, including Movie Bob's reviews.

Gxas:
In this thread: People continue their discussion of the expendables from last week because no one knows how to let anything go.

Ha, your definitely right on that one.

I guess Movie Bob is now officially useless as a movie reviewer because he can't let go the fact that a big budget action flick with just about every major action movie star from the last three decades in it will make more money than some shit with Michael Cera in it.

I'd ask you to get over it Movie Bob but instead I will just never watch any of your reviews ever again.

P.S.
Movie Bob this is the Escapist site and they mostly do stuff about videogames and videogames news and one of the biggest franchises in this current generation has a guy taking a chainsaw to the enemies face, another with a main character whose biceps are bigger than his head, and "Boom Headshot" means something cool. Get off the high horse when this audience likes to see stupid action films over an obscure comic book based film.

Well, I liked The Expandables, but you could still give reasons why it was bad by this point.

Anyway, I'd really like to see Piranha 3D, but I won't be able to due to the fact it's rated 18 in this country. Really annoying considering I'll have to wait until DVD and miss out on the 3D.

You would have needed more then one monkey to make the expendables better. You would have needed to have all the monkeys from timesplitters. A normal monkey, a ninja monkey, a zombie monkey, and a cyborg chimp in epic shootouts with lots of bad guys. Hell yeah!

But, great video none the less.

Wow way to miss what people where mad about, nobody said it wasnt trying (i liked the jock joke he made, nice where all jocks for DEFENDING the movie now) I shouldent be surpised he used the douche way out of ignoreing the critism, he would have liked Expendables if it had a stupid sci-fi element, gore and naked chicks. If were all "sheep" for likeing The Expendables, then I can call you a fuckbrain nerd for liking girls gone wild 3D or whatever.

It's hard to take seriously a man who says that Kelly Brook naked is enough to make a film worth watching.

Because she's not, she's the sort of thing that anyone with a brain would hold up as a specific reason not to see a movie. We have the internet for nudity, we have porno mags for nudity, we even have Page 3 of the Sun and various other 'respectable' sources for nudity of the sort kelly Brook can supply. What we have movies for is story. It doesn't have to be a good story, but it can't be supported alone by Kelly's bra.

Which is why I find it hard to now decide whether I should see Centurion, because before I saw this I was tempted, and had Bob reviewed it without the references to Piranha 3D, I'm sure I would have gone and seen it based off this review, but that little opening segment just cast literally his entire review into the 'uncertain' category for me.

Maybe when he reviews a movie, he should stick to that movie, instead of letting himself get sidetracked into other movies. You don't see Yahtzee referring back to the previous week for a solid minute at the start of each review, you wouldn't see the Nostalgia Critic, or the Spoony One, or Linkara, or in fact any of TTGWTG doing it, you wouldn't in fact see anyone else doing that, so why does Bob?

I liked your reviews better when they were a review of the movie you had put in the title Bob. You wanna do a Piranha 3D review? Do a Piranha 3D review, you wanna do a Centurion review? Do a goddamn Centurion review.

exactly. the escapist needs to grow a sack. if they are on the internet and get OFFENEDED that EASILY then they need to GTFO before they see 4chan and what they say on there. christ. learn to take a JOKE people.

As everyone above me stated, nobody cared wether or not you thought the expendables was bad, they cared because you took time out to personally insult them.
Another film critic was fond of saying "YOU deserve better." You could have fixed that with a single apology stating that it's still bad (it's your opinion) and you didn't mean to insult the audience who thought going to such a hugely funded action movie was a good idea, and yet you completly missed the mark.
Fuck you BOB, at least TRY to look into why people were angry.

Going to have to agree with this on a certain level.

I watched through the whole review and I have to say that I hate when people say things like a "Good BAD B Movie". They managed to get a piece of shit into theaters because they slapped 3D on it and can make money off of people who just want to see tits and blood. Amazing. I don't need to see tits and ass because my computer can do that for free and I don't need blood because I'll just go play a video game. I want a good story, not some B-rated asinine shit thats just thrown at me to make money...kinda like your view on the Expendables!

I get what you liked about Piranha but Centurion as the 'action picture with a brain' part, not so much.

Sorry, Bob-I think you tried to hash out too many ideas in to short a time; the nuggets where there but just not expanded upon enough to really convey what you were going for-at least to me.

Although I respect that Fassbender is best known for Inglorious Bastards it would be nice to have had his lead role in Hunger mentioned aswell, it's one heck of a movie

OT: Nice review, I've seen Pirhanna 3D and I wholeheartedly agree with Bob in terms of the Tits, Blood and Ving Rhames. Also the ending had me in stiches.

This is the closest I could find to Stallone wearing fake breasts.

It's from an old 80's flick called "Nighthawk".

Oh boy, nobody is going to back down from this argument. And we have Machete next week. *sigh*

I haven't seen that film in years!

Point critically missed.

While most people griped that you offended those that went to see or even enjoyed Expendables. My main gripe was, while you went on a rampage last week, you didn't exactly "Review" anything. Like I said last week, I know nothing more about the film besides "Bob doesn't like it." This week? I now know that "Bob likes boobs and likes Dog Soldiers." (Which, yeah Dog Soldiers is a damn good movie, and yeah boobs are always great, but they are no reason alone to see a film unless you're watching porn.)

You're so certain that this movie sucks, but you have yet to tell us why besides "It's dumb" or "It's bad." This week, you continue with it, but instead of explaining to us why you felt these feelings about the movie, you try to distract us with other movies instead, all while at the same time, rubbing it in that you don't like the Expendables. If anything, it just seemed that you threw it in there just to piss everyone off more than you did last week. If that is the case, then I guess haha the jokes on all of us, but I feel you may be slipping down that slope where you realize that professional internet trolling scores more hits than being a professional reviewer.

If for some reason you can't say without spoiling the movie, then tell us you can't, or put it in a spoiler box... It'll be a lot closer to doing your job than what you're actually doing right now.

Either that or just drop it all together...

Watch your review of Splice, then watch your review of the expendables and this one again... You can see why I'm sad to see you acting out like this. Your older reviews contained information about the movies that allowed me to get a better grasp of what I'm about to see. Currently all I'm seeing is "Loved it, sucked, boobs, and that one guy from Inglorious Basterds."

What happened?
