Poll: So who all went and watched Spring Breakers after listening to this week's Bombcast? (385 votes)

I sure did! 16%
*sigh*, I did. 12%
Never. 39%
I'd already seen it. 33%

After Jeff's bizarre description of Spring Breakers on the Bombcast I had to watch it, and I'm curious how many other duders did as well?

I loved it but I don't think it would hold up a second time. I was eating dinner and drinking a margarita during it and I didn't finish the food or drink by the end of the film. It seemed like it just hypnotized me. It was just a good experience that I woudn't want to sully by watching it again and finding out it's just OK.

I will never forget seeing Kids in theaters.

Yup, same here. The reaction of the crowd at the end was pretty great. Ever checked out Larry Clark's Another Day in Paradise?

Pleasantly surprised by it, nothing really outstanding about it, but it's completely crazy, hard to believe it got made, hard to believe Nicolas Cage wasn't in it.

Kind of wish I had seen it in the theater, I'd imagine watching the audience would have been as fun as watching the movie.

It has a lengthy monologue given by James Franco talking about all the SHEEYIT he got (designer clothing in lots of colors, gold bullets, scarface on repeat, Calvin Klein escape and Be, a bed that is a fucking piece of art space ship, blue koolaid, nunchucks, different flavor shurikens, them sais, dark tannin oil)

Also, he deep throats a silenced pistol.

Best movie ever?

It was beautiful.

I have a sneaking suspicion that I'd hate it, so I probably need to watch it to know for sure.

Psh, Bombcast what? I saw that movie in the damn theater. Myself and two friends went, and we were the only 3 people in the theater. This was a weekend, night showing. The only time I've ever been in a movie theater with my group and no one else. It was glorious.

Riff Raff told people on Twitter to yell something about Riff Raff when James Franco was shown onscreen, and he would retweet the video. I followed orders.

.....what the hell am I watching? It's some kind of hellish coke-fueled nightmare with a cast raised on reality television.

#59 Posted by Dethfish (3654 posts) -

I just watched it. It went from hilariously bad in the first half to some what interesting by the end. I think overall I actually liked it. Somehow.

#60 Posted by BIGJEFFREY (5014 posts) -

I've already seen it but I should watch it again.

#61 Posted by The_Reflection (249 posts) -

Saw it in theaters. Twice.

Spring break forever.

hey Ashley Benson is a legitimate actress D:

(the reason I watched it because I like her on Pretty Little Liars)

I couldn't make it all the way through.

#64 Posted by Gatehouse (620 posts) -

I'd been meaning to watch it before, but I really wished I hadn't bothered now. What an absolute shit-show of a movie. I hated every single character in it and the script was fucking garbage, a situation not helped by every line of dialogue was repeated about 3 times. It did do some visually interesting stuff (apart from showing some ‘Girls Gone Wild’ B-Roll over and over again), but by then I just wanted it to be over.

SPREEEEEEEEENG BREAAAAAAAAAAK.

I think that about sums it up.

Honestly though Riff Raff is owed a paycheck on this one, if "Spring Breakers" was a wrestling storyline that shit would be gimmick infringement.

That scene where franco and the 2 girls walk down the pink lit dock in yellow was beautiful.

On another note, the movie was meant to point out the absurdity of the modern college experience, right? College is this time separated from "real life" where you live in a relatively safe gated community. Then spring break is this thing separated from that already separated experience. By trying to get away from college the girls accidentally end up in a shitty part of the real world, do shitty things, and still expect to walk away free.

I honestly don't think there was any message behind it. There is some very feint outlines of naivete and seeing life through the rose tinted glasses of teen fueled dreams - maybe a little bit 'coming of age' near the end when they call their parents. For the most part I think it is visually and audibly quite an experience. There is a movie titled Enter the Void that to takes the idea behind Spring Breakers to the extreme. It is an audio-visual acid trip that is fascinating to experience.

I went and watched Hunger Games 1 on Netflix. That's kind of the same thing.

I ended up watching a subtitled version in a bar by coincidence last week. It was kind of surreal at moments because there was no sound but the bar was playing a lot of club/dance music. There were moments where it really oddly synched up, including a dance remix of Beyonce's "Single Ladies" starting up when this kiss Alien at the end.

I did try and watch it. Got through like the first 10 minutes. I was not capable of opening my heart enough.

#72 Posted by LordJezo (82 posts) -

I just got through it.

Credits running now.

What the hell was that?

SPRING BREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAK

This is a pretty perfect scene..

#75 Posted by Zidd (1845 posts) -

I did but only because they said it was available on amazon prime video for free and I had already wanted to see it before that.

#76 Edited by TheUnsavedHero (1255 posts) -

My cousin made me watch it during Thanksgiving. Being full of turkey, stuffing, and deviled-eggs really put me in the right haze to kinda deal with it. Fuck man, that movie was terrible and transcendent.

Also, Jeff Jarrett.

James Franco is the best part of that film. I do love the Girls Gone Wild B-Roll tho.

I don't know what I just watched. Am I currently undergoing a massive stroke? Or did I accidentally ingest some high grade hallucinogenics? SPRRIIIIINNNGG BREAKKKKK

So I bought the Blu-Ray like two weeks ago and I finally decided to watch it. That movie is interesting. I don't know if anyone else felt this way but man I felt really uneasy for most of the film. As hilariously absurd as some parts of the movie are like the Britney Spears scene. There is just this undertone to the movie that at least to me was unsettling. Its for sure though one of the most unforgettable movies I've seen in awhile.

I agree. Despite it's issues, it's definitely a better movie than a lot of people give it credit for. My only major problem is the ending. I feel like I miss something. Like there's some hidden message somewhere that has completely eluded me. How did two average white girls, who probably never held a gun before that trip, take down, with perfect accuracy by the way, a good 10-15 black dudes like it was nothing? I mean...what? I'm not necessarily saying them dying would've been better, but the ending just feels completely out of place and doesn't make any sense to me.

@babychoochoo: Haha yeah that and their infinite ammo cheat. =p

As for the meaning I'm not sure I have the ending nailed down but the loss of innocence seems to be sort of one of the underlying themes. Which is why I think it ends up being so disturbing. What turns from being a getaway to excess of booze and partying ends up turning into something more well...sinister.

This film is .... special

SPRIIIIIIIIING BREEAAK

Let me just warn you guys - after watching Spring breakers I tried to follow what I assumed was a similar vibe and watched The Bling Ring, and it was a worthless waste of time.
