Eli Roth Script Machine 5000: Input a setting and number of characters, the machine will find a way to torture them for 90 minutes just like every other Eli Roth movie.

Roth is trying to push this as a revenge fantasy against "social justice warriors." because he knows the GamerGate crowd will generate free publicity.
Really, though, it's just another of his unoriginal shitty torture porn flicks.
John Holmes Motherfucker
A revenge fantasy? Are you sure? I saw it as naive, idealistic people encountering the cruelty of the world. But revenge? For trying to save the rain forest? That's just plain fucked up.
If his intention was to insult SJWs, it's clearly working.
@ Caminante Nocturno, what doesn't insult them?
John Holmes Motherfucker
>>>If his intention was to insult SJWs, it's clearly working.
I don't think it was. This movie has been on the shelf for a couple of years. It was supposed to come out in 2013, and there was a problem with the distributor, or something,. Gamergate wasn't a factor at the time.
As usual, because of the structure of POETV, we're watching the trailer and talking ?about the movie before any of us have seen it. So who knows what's going on>
I got the feeling that Cam's comment was directed at me, but while a "revenge fantasy" might be a little offensive, mostly it would just be stupid, it's an empty headed cliche to contrive to manipulate the audience into cheering for the torture, How much more terrifying and real if they don't deserve any of this but it happens because it's a terrifying world where bad things happen to good people?
I think we can all agree this looks like a total piece of shit
Hah...manbabies who still think that calling someone a social justice warrior is some kind of insult.
Like right wing shitheads who think you will collapse in tears if they call you a "liberal" or "progressive."
I was actually thinking about Roth this morning, trying to remember if Machete actually did the grainy Grindhouse style in the theatres like the trailer did. I know that's Rodriguez but Roth's fake trailer for Thanksgiving in the same Grindhouse movie is more the film from him that I'd like to see.
What would be a better term?
Twitter slacktivists who manage to be dumber than Teabaggers?
Self-righteous manbabies who are all for doxxing and hounding people because they hold the "wrong" opinions?
Idiots and flibertiggets still stuck in super-embarrassing FUCK YOU DAD-adolescent rebel mode, only with more smirking and smugness?
Incredibly privileged people who've never worked a hard day in their lives, don't plan to ever, and spend most of their time on the social media networks engaged in super-important blogging and tweeting and lecturing people who have the nerve to disagree with them on how they need to check their privilege?
I suppose some people have differing opinions in regards to what counts as "social justice". To me, it certainly isn't this recent wave of internet lunacy.

The film is actually a year old, but never made it to theatrical release. I think it's going to be straight-to-video or streaming thing.
Anyway, it's about a group of trust fund kids who travel to the rainforest to save an indigenous tribe from advancing deforestation. Their plane crashes, though, and the survivors are captured & eaten by the very tribe they were trying to save because IRONY!
And Roth originally said he made the movie as a criticism of spoiled rich kids who jump on a plane and head to disaster areas or uncivilized places to help people but are either just incompetent or even sometimes make things worse. What kept it out of theaters was the insensitive portrayal of indigenous peoples as savages who like to eat white people along with Roth's usual cliché of attractive young women screaming and crying as they get tortured to death.
But now, he's claiming he made it as a big middle finger to the "White Knights" and "Social Justice Warriors" of the online world and so the GamerGaters and MRAs are all clamoring to see it and demanding justice for poor Eli Roth who is being censored and oppressed by the feminazis.
Eli Roth is a terrible person who makes terrible movies for terrible people to masturbate to.
If that's what he's doing, then it's working like a charm, because the more you complain about this movie, the more I want to watch it.

Eli Roth is remaking Cannibal Holocaust. If this works out well for him, I hope he tries to remake Zombi 3.
|Robin Kestrel - 2015-07-14 |
Don't forget the sequel, Beyond the Green Inferno!
|oddeye - 2015-07-14 |
I hope the tribe of torturous rapist savages are portrayed in a sensative and balanced manner.
|OxygenThief - 2015-07-14 |
This looks like a slickly shot remake of something that scared Eli Roth as a kid. I don't know who this is for other than him.
|John Holmes Motherfucker - 2015-07-14 |
I'd love it if the soundtrack album was all Stephen Foster songs. Now THAT's what I call torture porn!
|Void 71 - 2015-07-14 |
Israeli bulldozers have proven to be more of a threat to the lives of SJWs than indigenous people. Maybe Eli Roth will make a movie about blood-crazed Israeli settlers who bury SJWs alive and make stew out of Palestinian babies.
|infinite zest - 2015-07-14 |
Aw man, I really thought it was going to be giant guinea pigs.
|Oscar Wildcat - 2015-07-14 |
Fuck trees! I'm sure we'll all be better off without them. Who needs oxygen?

This and that dumbass miniseries about animals taking back the earth are my two favorite examples of weepy scared white people vs. nature.
|StanleyPain - 2015-07-14 |
It's pretty much a literal remake of Cannibal Ferox, only this time spurned on Eli Roth's shitstain of a marketing gimmick of trying to make this out to be some kind of anti-SJW statement (even though the movie was in the can abour 4 years ago and just never got released because basically every distributor he approached thought it was a waste of money to put out).
See..here's where Roth's garbage argument falls apart, though. In Cannibal Ferox (and presumably this movie) the idea is that the people are trying to defend the tribes from being perceived as horrible monsters. They find out they are indeed horrible monsters, but can't bring themselves to abandon that narrative so even in the end, the female journalist in Cannibal Ferox still lies to the Western world and claims the tribes are not cannibalistic.
But see, here in the real world, "SJWs" are pointing out the shitty, awful, gross manbabies who permiate the internet and really do act like fucked up, amoral animals. They are not lying or creating a narrative and when they get attacked (like, for example, by Eli Roth) it absolutely, 100% validates everything they are claiming and it is the actual gross shittards who are in denial and attempting to create a narrative that it is not true and, to do so, have to construct lies and distortion.
Also, it's kind of ironic to attack "SJWs" with a film in which your perceived SJW characters are tortured to death, then turn around and trivialize the discussion about how female activists (and internet activists in general) are constantly threatened with violence.
I guess what I'm saying is that Eli Roth is a piece of shit, this movie looks like a fucking joke, and everyone in his corner because they don't like tumblr or whatever are also shit.
Looks like Roth's marketing gimmick is working like gangbusters.
1. Agreed; this movie is a needless remake. Like the upcoming Ghostbusters fiasco.
2. Actually, the movie goes off the rails thinking a bunch of trustafarian, leg beards would place themselves in actual danger & venture from the twitter hugbox.
3. Both Gamergate & the AGGro's have trolls who threaten & doxx one another. I'm a moderate libertarian/leftist (imagine a pro vaccine Bill Maher) GG'er due to the fact that hipsters with gender studies degrees are trying to censor my games. The Authoritarian left is getting to be as bad as the GOP's Tea Baggers.
4. Say provocative things to a 13 year old & he'll become volitile. It's a lot of hot air. BTW, correct me if I'm wrong but no one has been convicted for doing anything remotely violent. You've been on the internet for years. I'm sure you've received your share of empty, hollow threats.
5. Sticks & stones, dude. I loathed Tipper Gore & Jack Thompson for advocating censorship. Now, I'm seeing a smug group of hipsters to the left of Stalin trying to ruin my pastimes. I'm not having it.
I do know some rich kids who have done things like Mercycorps or Americorps etc. And another one is now a marine. Then again it depends on your definition of trustafarian, which is really a white kid with dreadlocks, the hair ostensibly being the reason for unemployability in a lot of work spaces. But it's a loose definition like hipster.
@ infinite zest,
You are quite fortunate to know some cool people. The over privileged fedora bearers in my neck of woods are insufferable attention whores. The mere act of walking down the street is taken to performance art levels.
Holy shit, Pillager, I was going to make fun of you for screeching about video games like Christians screech about gays, but this list blew my fucking mind.
Fuck you, Japan and America, you're the worst.
No one significant is trying to censor your games, Drama McQueen.
Females (girls and women), as a consumer segment, are asking that games -also- cater to them, instead of -exclusively- to your ilk.
And mostly it's tiny shit, like adding female avatars. Your kind is literally calling the equivalent of a holocaust over something that's equivalent to Ford offering an extra color choice.
And people would be more willing to listen to that oft-neglected consumer segment if they didn't let a bunch of insufferable little weenies speak for them.
Or they were being ignored until your degenerate hordes decided to attack a handful of women that mentioned that they were being ignored.
Now they're getting lots of attention, and you set back the perception of male gamers about 15 years....good job. Idiots.
Damn, you guys. Just to go the Mechwarrior 3 video and ask Cayla Woods how many games she's had pulled, rewritten, and rereleased for failing to meet her standards. I bet it's hundreds, if not thousands.

The professor of the class or whatever that suggests they go there is someone from the tribe that went to the big city and taught a class to send more people there to be sacrificed to some gods. The gods are real and the final scene is the gods being summoned or some shit.
He gives it a Cabin in the Woods spin.
|NewHeavenSockman - 2015-07-15 |
i will never understand people that pay for things based on the belief it will infuriate some other theoretical group of people they have never actually interacted with.
though at least mad max was worth seeing on its own merits, rather than this sad mondo/cannibal tribute horseshit.
