Throwing around dumb movie ideas can be fun. My favorite RLM moment is Mike's pitch for a "boy in the wall" horror film called "The Inside".To be fair, a racing movie set in a massive, heavily urbanized sci-fi world could be an interesting popcorn flick. The problem would be dissociating it from the Hot Wheels brand. Hot Wheels has brand recognition, but utilizing it would make the movie seem like more of a soulless cash grab and/or a 90 minute toy advertisement, instead of a fun summer flick.
Then again, I'm probably reading too much into this.
But what makes this funny to me is we're coming up with these wild movie ideas that are head and shoulders above Bob's. The reason they are is because we're not being pretentious. We're not pretending these silly movie ideas are anything other than that: silly. We don't try to make them seem like something more than what they are.
Robert Chipman, He of the Moving Pictures, on the other hand, takes his asinine ideas and actually presents them seriously, and if you don't get it it's because you're a small-brained, inbred mayonnaise wasteland ghoul. He tries to present his autistic vomit as something deep and insightful.
But your point about a soulless cash grab or a toy advertisement is spot on. Bob loves the old Transformers TV show and movies. Like before, he has a reasonable point taken to a dumb extreme.
I like the 1986 Transformers animated movie. Good animation, great soundtrack, and above all fun despite (or perhaps because) it's a toy ad and Star Wars rip off who's goal was to kill off the old characters so kids would want the new toys. But there's more to films than that and Bob refuses to move on past his nostalgia. I'd bet that Michael Bay Transformers movie used the designs from his childhood and Megan Fox played a ball busting lesbian, he'd give it 11/10.
Has he reposted the episode where he calls Halo racist?Apparently Bob has access to his old Big Picture episodes and he’s been reuploading them on his YouTube channel.
What makes this funny is that he's been promoted by everybody from Geek.com, ScrewAttack, The Escapist, and (according to Razorfist) Jay Leno, and he still struggles to get the number of views and subscribers as the likes of Razorfist, The Quartering, Nick Rekieta, even Null gets more views on his random streams than Bob does for his videos that require hundreds of hours of editing per episode.According to Social Blade, Robert loses an average of 66 subscribers a day and has lost around 2K subs in the last 30 days. So not only has he failed to grow his channel over the last few years, he's now actively losing subs:
Serious answer. He's going to give it a middle of the road review.What's the over/under on, assuming he does one, what Bob's Sonic review review will be like? My money is him questioning why are Sonic's arms blue.
He hates Sonic movie fans for successfully getting the design changed, and Birds of Prey fans are lying about the movies fans being bigots to try and stop it beating Birds of Prey at the box office.
“Bird's of Prey fans seeing the Sonic Movie as a threat to their dumb Harley Quinn movie flopping at the box office and trying to spread lies about the Sonic Movie to make people not wanna see it is the funniest thing I've seen in a while. Stan #SonicMovie”
However, FilmRobert can't bring himself to badmouth a childhood favorite. The film appears to follow the western canon instead of the Japanese canon used since Sonic Adventures, Bob says he didn't like the Japanese canon so that's a point in it's favor. It doesn't have the extended Sonic cast in the trailer, another point since Bob hates all the extended cast (his ideal Sonic game opens with them all being killed off). I don't know if Bob likes SatAM, I'm guessing he liked the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog cartoon which was more childish and shit. The film doesn't seem to be a train wreck on the level of Pixel's or The Room, and the producers gave enough of a shit to change the Sonic design, which shows somebody gave at least a fraction of a fuck.
My prediction. 2 stars. Low enough to shit on the film and keep good with lefty Twitter, but not so low that he has to cry himself to sleep at having helped kill a childhood icon. If they show the Sonic 1 Robotnic ship, 3 stars.
