James Franco should have his nipples rubbed off with sandpaper for making Spring Breakers, just a god-awful piece of shiat movie. And don't get me started on This is the End. That pile of garbage deserves something involving slow castration with pinking shears.

I didn't think it was great, but it was much better than I thought it was going to be.  I certainly liked it more than Pineapple Express.

I think it was quite interesting.  It went WAY over the top, but I liked how everyone played themselves. It was kind of neat seeing otherwise famous actors making fun of themselves.

Spring Breakers falls solely on Harmony Korine, who has made his living being one of the most obnoxious douchebags in the world of film.

It's a movie made by a couple of millionaire potheads, staring themselves and their buddies. What exactly were you expecting?

This Is the End was great. What were you expecting?


I'm convinced that anyone uptalking Springbreakers is being intentionally difficult. The plot would move 1 minute forward for every 5 minutes of its actual runningtime.

I thought it was pretty funny. I'm not sure about over the top though. It an apocalypse comedy written by Rogen and had guys like Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, and Franco in leading roles. Only way you can say it's over the top is if you've never seen those guys in comedies before. I have a feeling Danny McBride had a hand in some of the more "creative" scenes though.

It wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if James Franco goes home every night and laughs at the perception of "James Franco" that both the media and himself created.

Uh, that was a bunch of self involved guys name dropping each other and mugging for the camera. At least Pineapple Express had Gary Cole. No movie with Gary Cole can be all bad.

Spring Breakers was the perfect description of the nascent nihilist non-culture that makes you pray for an asteroid to impact north america.

Agreed. It wouldn't surprise me either to find out a some psych kiddie touched who can only get off to old women in a Barney bikini who wear Ed Beagely Sr. mask while they sing "Everybody Wants To Rule The World" in the style of Pee Wee Herman getting farked in the ass by Charlie Sheens assistant.

TitE opened with a Carl's Jr. commercial, FFS. That turned me off right there, and it went downhill from there. Will give them credit for at least bring up raping Emma. Danny McBride is pretty hilarious as well, but the rest sucked.

I've never liked Franco in anything...can never figure out how he gets roles.

FTFA: Imagine in a distinct German accent: "Three hundred years from now, when people want to look back at dis time, dey won't go to the Obama inauguration speech, dey will go to Spring Breakers."

The whole piece is really funny, and well-written, because it's so overwritten.

The thing is I can imagine Werner Herzog saying something like that, but it would either say just to fark with someone like Franco, or it would be about something far weirder than James Franco in a teen sex comedy.
 
2013-11-03 04:06:43 PM
I don't have anything bad to say about Franco except that his roast was the worst ever because it involved all of his friends who are in all of his movies who aren't funny.

Nobody involved in Pineapple Express should be allowed in Hollywood again. That kind of 'comedy' is exactly why the dumb comedy genre sucked for the last decade.

Of that I have no doubt. It doesn't excuse his nauseating bouts of excessive self-preening just to keep busy, though.

You'd feel too pervy watching a movie with 4 girls in their mid 20s in bikinis? Man I bet you're a blast at the beach or at a bar.

"This is the End" was pretty much a cavalcade of every actor I avoid, with the notable absence of Rob Schneider.

Glad to see all the hate for Spring Breakers...what a stinking pile of shiat that movie is.

Spring Breakers was inspired by the ATL Twins which is why James Franco and Terry Richardson need to be punched in the balls.

I find it is pretty reliable to check out stuff Fark doesn't like, 9 times out of 10 it will be at least entertaining. I like the Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother, most things Seth Rogen and James Franco have done, and a ton of other things.

Pineapple Express just wasn't that good, even with Gary Cole.  At least for me, if a bunch of guys are going to make a movie that is just them ad-libbing with each other, it's better if they acknowledge that's all it is.  Pineapple Express just didn't work for me.  This is the End did.

Spring Breakers was an excellent examination of shallowness as a lifestyle, and succeeded mainly due to his performance.

Man, I really wanted to watch Spring Breakers.  It's got a ton of hot chicks running around doing drugs and being half naked for an hour, presented with at least a modicrum of seriousness/veneer/etc.

Just couldn't get past the 'rap' scene with alien, and the girls dwelled on themselves way too much.

But damn, give me the pink-haired one in the red fishnet.

Please.

Farkers find a reason to biatch about anything. If some hot naked lady went to their house to deliver a machine that printed out free money, there would be people on Fark complaining that she had sharp knees and that the serial numbers on the bills weren't in sequential order.
