Mr. Mendo joins forces with the Rosen Hacker
for one of the worst Best Picture Oscar nominees ever, The Help
! Based on Kathryn Stockett's novel, Emma Stone is a White Savior character in 1960s Mississippi who writes a book about the black maids in town (Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer), which makes all the white people in town feel bad about racism. It also makes a buttload of money for Emma, while leaving the maids worse off then before. Whoops!
Also in this episode, Mendo and Rosen get a lot of help from their fellow reviewers as they try to figure out just how many cameos can physically fit in one review!You can catch more episodes of the Rosen Hacker's show at rosenhacker.posterous.com
Django Unchained (2012)
“Will people look back on Django Unchained as Tarantino's masterwork? Most likely not, as Pulp Fiction is so culturally ingrained, and Inglourious Basterds is much more daring. However, Django is that rare film that just works on every level.”Jar Jar, Ruby Rhod, and the legacy of Urkel
“I honestly can’t recall a single example of someone claiming an annoying character ‘ruined the movie’ when there wasn’t a non-white actor playing the role. ”Jack Reacher (2012)
“Cruise tackles the role of an action antihero well, even though at age fifty, he’s probably getting too old for this.”Inception (2010): The joyless dream of Christopher Nolan
“It tells you what it’s going to show you, then it shows you what it just told you. Understanding this movie doesn’t require intelligence, but rather rote memorization.”Franchise Evolution: The Godfather
“The thing is, when I see a sacred cow, I get really hungry for a burger!”Heaven is for Real is really dumb
“If there’s one quality that entertainment for Christians shares with video games made for pre-teen girls, it’s the idea that conflict is a dirty word.”
