Sorry for the interruption, but we'd really appreciate it if you watched some of our videos!
All videos are written, performed, and edited by the Agony Booth staff, so they're just like the
recaps you know and love, only without all that annoying reading!
“It’s funny that in a world inhabited by iron-clad, god-like, and star-spangled superheroes, we end up with such bland and boring villains.
“So noticing that its successor 300: Rise of an Empire has actually attempted to be a story about something deeper, with multiple layers, symbolism, and themes, I’m at a loss to decide whether or not that’s actually a good thing.”
Three more reviewers present their three different takes on The Lego Movie.
Yes, the one time Sofie goes to the theaters expecting to see a terrible remake, and it turns out to be bloody competent! The RoboCop remake is a decent flick. It has some flaws to be sure, but it's a fun watch with some genuinely clever moments and decent action.
The Film Renegado and Mr. Mendo present their different takes on The Lego Movie.
“Yes, it’s a dumb action movie about Frankenstein fighting demons, but that doesn’t mean you’re not allowed to indulge in a little actual meaning should you stumble across it.”
“The movie as a whole is like getting a gift card for Christmas: perfectly acceptable, but not requiring a whole lot of thought.”
“Could Anchorman 2 be the end of Will Ferrell’s over-hyped career? In a nutshell: yes. Or, at least, it should be.”
“I lost count of the number of shots of Pitt staring off into the distance in horror, or looking back over his shoulder in slow-mo while running from the zombie hordes.”
“I’m not sure that’s how evolution works, though it’s disheartening to see that Shyamalan thought so much of his silly ‘plants killing humans’ premise of The Happening that he reuses it here.”
“Unfortunately, Ender is the only one who ever becomes fleshed out in three-dimensional form, with the rest of the cast seemingly there only to justify his bloody-yet-brilliant existence. It’s like having a high performance sports car and only being able to race it against family minivans.”
“Europa Report is a bit like a Shakespearian tragedy: everybody dies, and everybody knows it.”
“Stephenie Meyer does for the alien invasion genre what she did for vampires and werewolves: she takes away everything you love about it, stuffs it with her own bizarre mythology, and uses it mostly to create a love triangle and romantic angst.”
It instantly became a cult classic on social media, and now there's not a single person on the Internet who hasn't talked about this movie. But since some people are still on the fence about watching it, what the hell, here's a review!
“It’s a refreshingly outlandish concept, but unfortunately, the kooky title and premise of this movie end up being the most entertaining aspects of it.”
“Slapstick comedy coincides with witty puns, and situational comedy is spawned from an otherwise dazzling fistfight. This is a film that not only blends genres, but seemingly creates new ones.”
