bankrupt as fuck
There's something about their brand of sarcasm that I absolutely love. The way they're just being so obvious with it I find hilarious, compared to other people on the internet who think they're so clever in their snark, which just makes them punchable.
Mike and Jay are awesome. I used to know them via a movie theatre I worked at and we'd just talk shit about everything (we were mostly oscar-bait "indie" movies, but when the summer hit.. oh boy.) They actually lived across the street from me too and we'd drink beer and watch movies.
My problem with them is they really, REALLY need to tighten up their dialog. It's as if they're pausing for a laugh track to stop or something.

The sequelpocalypse is imminent.
I remember a time when you could single out things like Police Academy 7 or Rocky 5 for being shameless cash grab sequels. Now every stupid thing that made even the smallest profit is repackaged and returned to the American people to consume yet again.
I can't wait to see A Haunted House 2. I hope it has funny fart jokes! Maybe he will smoke weed with a ghost! LOL!
Media corporations need to retain the rights to their IP indefinitely, because otherwise they might have to come up with new ideas.
It's like some execs constantly pick out and then green-lights any movie that can be made into a franchise. I know it's kinda always been like this but it's definitely been ramped up to 11.
For example: The watery-turd background movies for X-Men, The Hobbit and every single fucking Avenger etc.
In addition, movies based on a series of shit books aimed at 12 year olds such as Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergence, Mortal Instruments etc. are all HEAVILY pumped for cash like some roided up golden calf with it's udders stuck in a sewage unblocker. Maybe not so much Mortal Instruments cause it never took off like the others.
Hey, I LIKE the Hobbit movies. They can pump Tolkein all they want; as long as they don't get Michael Bay or Joss Whedon on board, I'll keep watching whatever Hobbit-branded turd Hollywood can offer.

yeah, I wouldn't put the Hobbit in the same class as those others. I do like your use of imagery though.

When a monkey stares into a mirror, no saint stares back out.
If they can see how worthless the movies are, perhaps they need to find something else to do? Or they could just pile on and try to make more money, as they are doing now. You can't have it both ways.
Gotta milk higher profits to make up for higher costs.
Whatever happened to cgi making movies cheaper? When is that going to start happening?
