stoli n coke: verbaltoxin: stoli n coke: TheLopper: God damn, even Patton Oswalt hit Fark critical mass. Shiatballs.Like Zach Galifinakis and Louis C.K. before him, Patton committed the Fark cardinal sin of taking jobs that actually paid well instead of just spending the next 30 years playing clubs attended only by 3 farkers and their imaginary girlfriends.I have one issue with Patton Oswalt, as well as David Cross, who also does this a lot. If they make a mainstream, crappy movie for a big paycheck, then it's okay, but if anyone else does it, then they're horrible, awful people who should be skinned alive, and have their wounds covered in sand.I could even stomach that hypocrisy to a point, except both Oswalt and Cross make these kind of jokes a lot, and nerdy elitism informs a lot of their acts. It's kind of the basis for them, really. So whenever either of them go off on how Larry the Cable guy is the cancer of comedy, I think of King of Queens or Alvin in the Chipmunks, and make a jack-off motion in the air.Larry the Cable guy is a cancer of comedy because he isn't funny. He's a midwestern Seinfeld wannabe who couldn't hack it, so he slapped on the equivalent of redneck blackface.
Ishkur: rugman11: Trying to intellectually analyze Tyler Perry is like trying to critique James Patterson or Thomas Kinkade.Painter of Trite. Mass-produced, feather-lite fluff, designed for collection plates, calendars and nursing homes. Warm, cozy, idyllic, pastoral - scenery so perfect and so effervescent that it's overkill. Especially when you realize how many of these he ran off the assembly line over the years. They're all the same, each one a carbon copy of the others, in form, style and composition. The more he churned out, the more they felt like parody to the point where they transcended their own uplifting warmth to invert into something ironic and disturbing. Salvador Dali would have considered Kinkade's entire body of work to be a masterpiece of sentimental absurdism.That Kinkade wanted to capture idealism while at the same time violating basic principles of physics and lighting is a good metaphor for what's wrong with his work: It's so insincere that it's offensive to real life. Despite objects ranging from fifty feet to fifty miles away, there is no depth. Everything is a flat, multi-tonal, highlighted stroke of the same brush, betraying real perspective. There is a limited range of colors and everything is in focus. Where is the light reflecting off the snow coming from? Why does the interior of every cottage look like it is on fire? And who really lives in cottages anymore, anyway?This is a guy claiming to be doing God's work and according to him God is safe, boring, and only just barely aesthetically pleasing. The pinnacle of mediocrity. And you just know that in an alternate Universe there was a Thomas Kinkade who didn't quite make it as an artist so he started World War III instead./there, how'd I do?
Guntram Shatterhand: The article makes a good point: Perry panders to a subset that prefers their fiction full of the hope of the world they cannot have where traditional gender roles are not only reinforced but completely unexamined. Which makes the latent homoeroticism within even stranger as it could be read as a conflict: it's okay to be gay, but women who can stand on their own must be utterly destroyed because they lose their humanity. It's backing a system to preach homosexual acceptance while beating down women. It's a very unique robbing Peter to pay Paul. It's just a complex power struggle to get back to an artificial normalcy that really never existed.
boogerwolf: This article pretty much sums up why I don't like Tyler Perry's movies.Link
Wayne 985: TheJoe03: ... I must ask though, what's with Hollywood always making movies with block comics dressed as women. I remember Chappelle talking about it.More importantly, why do so many people go to see them? Weren't those Big Momma movies always #1 at the box office?
ExperianScaresCthulhu: why do white boys like doing gay shiat to one another while a victim is passed out?white boys can't fathom tyler perry.the rest of the world can't fathom white boy fascination and obsession with homo shiat.
Crotchrocket Slim: That's only a subset of white guys. There's a subset of black guys whole like a lot of that homo shiat.what, was that the joke of your post here?
KrispyKritter: SockMonkeyHolocaust: Yeah and Patton Oswalt was on 'King of Queens' and for whatever reason people think he's funny.Nathin Rabin status: still a pale imitation of Elizabeth WurtzelPatton Oswalt was on an episode of Burn Notice. i love that show but i hate that little troll. i put up with him up to the point where i saw him on a comedy special where him, that doosh big bird looking arsehole and a tiny dyke comedian were walking along somewhere on the streets of NJ and they had to go there. being as he's a midget i guess he just had to go for the low hanging fruit.Tyler Perry? yesterday I'm Mom-sitting and the TV is just on in the background. Christmas specials aimed at a black audience. Holy crap, it was like hearing a blend of soap opera and COPS - and this was supposed to be a Christmas special. sure nuff, it was a Tyler Perry. I look forward to the day when there are so many black actors, producers, directors, writers, comedians etcetera that black audiences don't feel they have to show the love for black artists that suck. It's pretty obvious at this time that if you make it up on the stage and you're a brother or sister you're going to get mad props for making it onto the stage regardless of talent and thats just sad.
Ravage: If Fartbongo had been white he would never have gotten elected.
TheJoe03: Ravage: If Fartbongo had been white he would never have gotten elected.Any Democrat would have been elected in 08 dummy. The joke is that Bush was so bad that he made America ready for a black president, ANY president, that wasn't a shiatty neo-con Republican dick.
Honest Bender: The real joke is that people think there's a difference between democrats and republicans. HAHAHA!
