Very Very dumb premise but man i love the over the top dumb I'd watch it. It's in kickstarter but its already funded 1 day in. Not trying to pimp their shit, the trailer must been seen by all its so dumb.

Yeah, that was pretty dumb. I can't see the point in a full length film as many premises like this do better in short 5-10 minute doses. A perfect example was when Aqua Teen Hunger Force decided to make a full movie. Glad they found enough people to give them money .

I am thinking about taking up that offer for 3d artist to work on this movie....

That was dumb. So dumb.

And I couldn't help but love every god damn second of it

So the movie has hit 300,000 bucks and they are going to release the first 30 minutes free online.

That trailer is telling me three things;

  1. What the fuck is up with this whole satire 80s VHS revival that's going over all sorts of media and entertainment this year?
  2. I am looking at too many bodybuilding articles when I recognize who's playing Thor just by the beard and physique.
  3. It looks like a big string of bad internet jokes in one movie.

The fact that they're Swedish is fun, as the Swedish film institue tend to fund pretty shitty projects in general. And as someone that knows people in the know, getting a project that's out of the ordinary romcom or crime drama category off the ground is near impossible by the sound of it. Glad they're finding other avenues for funding. All that said, it looks pretty great.

It looks decent enough for a viewing. It does look very dumb but in a good way.

Totally ridiculous and awesome, so it's a cross between Back to the Future, Sleeping Dogs, and Far Cry Blood Dragon? Sold!

Nothing is more fun/dumb than Kung Fu Hustle.

That was funny, but I feel like the trailer should be a sufficient enough joke. I think if you stretch it out to 90+ minutes, it might lose its appeal.

Seems legit.

Fucking. Awesome. Holy keyboard, if you read my description for FC3: Blood Dragon & Hotline Miami on my GOTY list, you'll see that I said I love 80's stuff and this. This is just YES.

I clicked on it expecting it to be the usual dumb bullshit and found it to be genuinely funny. Dunno if it would stretch to a whole movie though.

Sorry about waking this thread from the dead, but the movie is out! It's only 30 minutes though... yet, I feel that is the perfect length.
The movie is full of bad puns, awful acting and stupid shit. I love it.

It's alright, but I honestly feel like it's a little too dumb and over-stylized. There's very little substance here.

Also, Danger 5 already did all of this but better.

@chaser324: Danger 5 was so fucking good. Man, I love thwt show.

I feel like based on length and average silliness alone, there are much better options out there. Look up Six String Samurai, for example.

I went to a test screening of that.

The silence after the first couple minutes of the movie was so uncomfortable, the people that made it were in the back of the theater.

@excitable_misunderstood_genius: Friends and I were massive fans of Aqua teen hunger force and we saw the film the day it came out . I honestly can't recall one funny thing from the film .

#21 Posted by audioBusting (1742 posts) -

I was on board until I was 8 minutes in and realized some of these jokes were the same jokes done in Danger 5 but worse. Glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks that...

I don't recall any specifics, but I feel like in the very beginning there was a laugh, making it all the more conspicuous when there wasn't a single one again. I was too embarrassed to even look in the usher's eyes when leaving.

I don't know if anyone knows this, but it's also on Steam for free. The "movie" that is.

A time-traveling Hitler played by an actor of Italian descent in an 80s throwback comedy featuring a guy with a triceratops head and someone getting shot through a telephone, that can't really be one long string of coincidences.

This is clearly the best movie of the year. If it doesn't sweep the academy awards a fix will be obvious. No seriously though, for fans of schlocky kung fu movies and 80's crazy shit this video is pure awesome.

I've never seen Danger 5, but I really had a good laugh at this.
