 Hello, I'm Leonard Pinth-Garnell, and welcome once again to "Bad Cinema". We have a terrible film for you tonight. Before we actually roll the film, I'd like to introduce our distinguished panel. We have, uh, with us -- we're delighted to have -- author Truman Capote, who joins us tonight fresh from his debut as a bad actor.

I like the way they weaved little nuggets of humor into the otherwise dark and serious episodes.

/Hello Kitty? Really?

I don't like when directors/stars belittle the movies they've that made they hate, but I like, because I feel like it then invalidates me and makes me feel stupid for liking their movie!

This is my thoughts on Death to Smoochy. Which I found hilarious, but everyone else in the world said was dreadfully awful.

Coincidentally, which led me to originally feel this way, was an interview I once read while they were making "Hook" and Dustin Hoffman and Robin Williams were arguing about which of them made the worst movie.

Williams was saying "I made "Survivors" and Hoffman was saying "Oh yeah, well, I made Ishtar!" and Speilberg chimes in with "Well I made 1941, so I win" (or something like that)

And when I heard that I was actually upset because I LIKED 1941!  I mean, a lot!

Ironic that Hook is kind of a steaming, cocaine fueled, buncha inanity.

Actually Spielberg doesn't hate on 1941. He enjoys the chaos of it all but wishes it were funnier. He even added that he likes John Williams' 1941 march more than he does the Indiana Jones march.

So what you're saying is that Williams did so much cocaine he's completely forgotten "Popeye."

MMWI wasn't a bad film. It just wasn't all that good. The idea was great but the execution was off. Maybe Ledger's death took the wind out of the sails for the team but it's still watchable and interesting.

I honestly hadn't heard of it before. I didn't even realize that film was made recently (2007!). I just figured it was from the 70s or something...

Natalie Portman. And Dustin Hoffman. How did I miss this bomb?

I thought it was pretty good. Edward Norton's sincerity puts it on an level of absurdity that makes it hard not to like it.

I believe you're confusing Mister Magorium's Wonder Emporium with The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnissus.

They're both spellchecking nightmares, obviously.

Parnissus was fair, with some good performances, especially by Tom Waits, but it lacked focus, and the cgi wasn't well done; I think Gilliam is used to using practical effects.

On the other hand, Magorium had Dustin Hoffman, so it was almost certain to be bad.

Count me among those in the Death To Smoochy camp.

I thought it was a biting satire on a lot of different things:  Kids TV being nothing but a marketing machine, charities being more about lining the pockets of those in charge than actually doing good, the rather unsavory personalities off-screen of on-screen goody two-shoes characters, etc.  I think the public couldn't bring itself to believe there were that many unseemly characters surrounding kids TV.  Funny thing is, though, if you've worked in TV, you have no doubt that it's possible and thensome.  The only part that was a little tough for me to swallow was the idea of a "kids show groupie."

I think that movie may have been hurt by having big-name stars in it.  Robin Williams chewing the scenery has almost become cliché, and he never did it more than he did in Smoochy, which I think made a lot of people think, "Oh, just another frantic Robin Williams movie."  Danny DeVito and Harvey Fierstein probably didn't help matters.  Had, say, Broken Lizard (the Super Troopers guys) did the movie, it might have come off better.

Hey, I liked Popeye.  I am a big fan of all the old cartoons and the movie fit well with them.  I will say it dragged on a little towrard the end, but I still liked it.

Barely remember Emporium, didn't think it was terrible, but it was cliche and forgettable.

I had to check IMDB... sure enough they give it a 6.2....

It was great.

Part of me thinks the kind of dark, cynical, biting humor in Smoochy might ... oh, I don't know ... be similar to the dark, cynical, biting humor I get from the comments section of a certain news aggregator website I visit quite a bit.

But I could be wrong.
 
2013-09-26 06:39:29 PM
I would watch a Smoochy/Shakes The Clown double bill.

And so would you.
