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
“Granted, it’s far, far superior to the last meta-Bond film they tried (that would be Die Another Day), but it doesn’t have much of an identity of its own.”Gravity (2013)
“Finding myself taking the ‘it’s a great visual experience, the story is secondary to that’ stance this time around vaguely disturbs me.”District 9 (2009)
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: no one does borderline psychotic military commanders quite like the South Africans.”The Great Gatsby (2013)
“A lot of the dialogue seemed to be entirely forced, as if the cast was stuck in class and the teacher was making them read aloud.”American Sniper is not the real Chris Kyle, and that’s okay
“I kind of hate that people are assuming that the film is trying to sanctify Chris Kyle by portraying him not as he was, but as, well, Bradley Cooper trying to finally win an Oscar. ”Interstellar (2014): a recap (part 2 of 3)
“The second act is a prolonged science lesson with some first-year philosophy thrown in for good measure, albeit a visually stunning lesson with some good action pieces and special effects.”
