Just finished watching this.
It's really bad and painful. I don't think my friends or I really laughed once throughout the entire movie. I'd talk about it at length, but I don't really need to because they themselves already said everything you need to know about Space Cop and why it just isn't funny or good in one of their videos.
>Tangerine was shot on Iphones
>Buzzard was made on a budget of less than $3000
>both are really good movies with artistic merit
>RLM has lots of resources at their disposal
>They make an ironic "so bad it's good" comedy
>the exact kind of movie they constantly criticize
>mfw it turns out RLM are a bunch of hacks
Escape from Tomorrow was also almost entirely shot on these and looks better than anything in Space Cop.
i don't get this "trying to make a so bad its good movie" stuff. it looks like a comedy. it might not be a good comedy, but it doesn't look like it's trying to be a movie thats so bad its funny.
If a torrent is inevitable once the digital release comes, and they're sold out of Blu Rays for who knows how long it takes to produce a new batch, all they're doing is preventing people from seeing their movie.
I don't understand how this "epic internet critics" can come up with such shitty movies and think they are good. Do they have no self-awareness?
I will check both out. Now, how will these compare to Space Cop? If Space Cop isn't as good as the average self-aware comedy, what will prevent it from that (don't say budget)?
No and I can tell by the trailers that your friends won't like it, just watch it first before showing it to them. I don't want to live out the second-hand embarrassment of your friends being bored out of their fucking minds, I've had that happen.
There's a few scenes that are decent, but overall it's a chore to watch.
There's a reason why they're not really promoting this movie as much. when they do, it's usually just a quick sarcastic mention.
It is true though.
They always say only bad movies that try to be good and fail are enjoyable they they make a
>meant to be cheap and shitty
They are just afraid to try for real.
sorry to bust in here with a sensible and unbiased opinion but the reason their films are bad is that none of them are actors. They obviously have some skills in production and are aware of what makes a well shot movie but unless they hired actually competent actors RLM will never make an actually worth while film.
>all that assmad because your fake internet friends are attacked
>They are just afraid to try for real.
I've seen this argument before. You have to ignore reality to use this complaint though, seeing as how they've made more serious movies before.
REVIEWING and MAKING A FILM are two different things. Stop thinking reviewers are good at making films or that filmmakers make good reviewers. You can critique the film, but saying they're hypocritical is wrong.
>Stop thinking reviewers are good at making films
I never implied that, faggot. Pretty much the contrary.
I'm asking how they can shit out such crap movies and say "yep, this is good" with a straight face when their "job" is criticizing movies.
The Recovered is a straight psychological thriller. It's not GREAT but there's nothing "ironic" about it and the lead actress is really good and gets really emotional.
Feeding Frenzy is just a low budget comedy. It has its moments, but is far from "bad on purpose." I'm pretty sure the autists that keep using that argument don't know what they're even talking about.
Why make bad cheap looking comedies with shitty acting?
You are completely wasting your time in these threads if you try to discuss RLM's sense of humor seriously. These Space Cop threads have literally been nothing but "durr it's bad on purpose" statements made over and over by morons that don't know what the hell they're talking about.
>expecting someone to have a vivid enough memory of a movie they disliked that came out quite a while ago, that they could describe scenes from that movie
not even that guy but niggah you gay
Why do they do that stupid walk in place gag in almost every fucking scene? Is it an inside gag I'm not getting?
towards the end of the movie feels very unedited. Its like they just given up at that point.
I'm such a fagot for giving these frauds money. I'll still continue to watch RLM though since i'm a fag.
This is just getting sad. What do you get out of pretending you e seen this movie when it's very obvious that you haven't? I'm going to go so far as to say you know people don't believe you but you keep dragging it out. For what? Attention?
>where is Plinkett
I never liked Plinkett much aside from the Nadine storyline (Revenge of Nadine is hilarious!).
These guys are much stronger filmmakers than they are film critics, imo. I really want to see them go places!
>mfw when everybody in this thread is playing along as if OP has actually seen spacecop
all you'd have to do is drop ONE specific detail as proof that you saw it, fuckface. You won't "talk about it at length" because you're a lying little shit
They themselves make fun of how bad Space Cop is "going to be" in almost every one of their commentary tracks and in several BotW episodes.
Really they just do this stuff because it's what they enjoy doing. That's why Mike and Jay will never try to make it big or ship off to California. They're too in love with the low/no-budget realm and that's where they want to stay. Plus that's not really their niche anyway; just look at how fucking jarring even having a B-grade screenwriter like Max Landis on their show was.
If you expected Space Cop to be high art then you really need to reevaluate your life.
>implying the commentary track isn't the main incentive for getting any of their feature-length stuff
because nobody except len kabasinski actually owns a copy, they started shipping just recently and there is no digital version available
anyone telling you they've seen it is bullshitting
>They themselves make fun of how bad Space Cop is "going to be" in almost every one of their commentary tracks and in several BotW episodes.
A grade school level defense mechanism. Make fun of yourself first so if someone else does it you can pretend to laugh it off. It doesn't change anything.
>he still doesn't understand it's intentionally bad
>It doesn't change anything.
Except it does. It defuses expectations so that the only people who choose to watch it are the people who will enjoy it on some level in spite of that. That way people will say, "Oh. It's going to be bad. I guess I just won't watch it then."
Most people who were excited for it are just people who like RLM regardless of the quality of their content. I don't think anyone genuinely thought that a low-budget movie called fucking Space Cop made in 2015 was going to be good.
>I don't think anyone genuinely thought that a low-budget movie called fucking Space Cop made in 2015 was going to be good.
That's kinda the point. If something sucks, people will say it sucks. If RLM fans are really at peace with the fact that Space Cop will be by all critical measures a steaming load, I don't see why they'd care what people on a mongolian origami crafting forum would have to say about it.
I haven't seen it. Whatever it is, good or bad, it's the best they could do with their means. They're not doing some stupid half in the bag skit to fill up time, it's a movie they worked hard on.
Lol, hard on.
I'm confused, why do people care? Is RLM coming out saying it's the bestest thing ever? Are they claiming it's a serious parody art or some shit? Because unless they are I don't see why people give a shit, it's a bad movie. Not like those are a rarity.
It's because we were told for 3-4 YEARS that they were working really hard on Space Cop and when they finally let us see some of it, it looked like a slightly better Half in the Bag skit.
>I'm confused, why do people care?
>Because unless they are I don't see why people give a shit
I don't think RLM have any delusions over this movie. It's strictly for the fans. This isn't the first movie they've made, and if it's anything like their previous work, I'm sure their fans will enjoy it. A better question would be why do YOU care if this is good or not? You seem to be making a big deal out of all this, and yet it seems you don't even like RLM to begin with, so I gotta ask why are you even posting about this?
I'm not making a big deal about this as a good or bad movie, if I'm making a big deal about anything it's why this thread needs to exist at all. It doesn't seem like people are discussing the film in any detail. Maybe I've just gotten fed up with all of the other shit posting here on /tv/ so the lack of any actual information is making me annoyed but really, most of what I see is about RLM and not the movie itself.
As for my feelings on RLM
Rich, Jay and Mike are okay, I like them well enough. I definitely have a good deal of respect for them as critics in most cases
Have you seen any of their work outside of HitB and Plinkett? I'm so sick of people on here assuming they are only capable of delivering shitty internet skits. Go watch The Recovered or Feeding Frenzy. And it's not like the shit they do on youtube has terrible production value, on the contrary, their shows are some of the best available on the internet. Just compare what they do to the fucks on channel awesome or avgn.
I have tens of thousands in the bank. I spent $25 on pizza rolls alone today. Fuck your entitled ass if you think a group that makes a quarter million per year on fan donations needs another cent from me. I already watch their ads, buy their cheap merch (my mug came cracked), show their videos to my friends and on social media, and I bump these shit threads on 4chan, giving them all the support they need.
Do you think those odd posts complaining about RLM so much are just that one quite literally autistic guy who made an entire saga dedicated to shitting on RLM because they made fun of the prequels for being bad?
Pic related, one of his works of art
Would you be surprised if it were true? There's the 4kings autist on /vg/ who complains about one boss of Dark Souls every single day every single thread without a single break and he fucking hates that boss so much.
What kind of terrible logic is this? And I suppose no one actually supports Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders, its just two autists samefagging over all of the internet? I mean, there's an autist who hates a Dark Souls boss on an autist-only 4chan board, it must be true.
>detached gen x ethos copypasta
are you saying multiple people save that and post it?
there's a dude that posts pictures of asian guys with white girls every day for 4 years. 4chan is home of weird autists like this.
Why would I? All he does is bitch about how The Four Kings boss fight is the worst thing to ever grace reality. Just to go any Dark Souls thread right now and he's there, I guarantee it.
There's a guy that spams the same cunny threads 24/7 on here and has been doing it for years now. Or how about that guy who's obsessed with miss alice who seems to live on /tv/. There are guys who do nothing but browse /tv/ all day and make the same tired threads, and somehow the thought of someone autistic enough to post the same shit day in and day out surprises you? You haven't been here for very long, have you?
Why did or does /tv/ like these guys again?
Their reviews flip flop on how hard they berate a film about logical issues and plotholes, then let everything slide in others because style/message is more important than a rock solid plotting.
You can't represent both side at a whim, there's no consistency. Their antics are entertaining, but their reviews and technical skills/analysis seems limited (they don't claim to be high end industry technicians) and I guess /tv/ can see themselves in them. Assholes with opinions and limited technical knowledge. Just an odd pair to latch on to when there's thousands of other movie reviewers out there.
Is Max Son of Sam in this?
Also why can't they just offer a fucking digital version? It's 2016 and they're a digital media company
They realise there's a larger margin in selling bits of data over a network than buying physical dvds and shipping them out right?
If the aim is to reduce the chance of piracy, they had to know it's going to be pirated ASAP anyway so what the fuck's the difference
Only now the people who would've bought it on release are going to be downloading it on release
T FUCK MY BUSINESS MODEL UP SENPAI
My copy arrived this morning.
But when I opened the box, the disc had a blank cover. I thought they were maybe trying to be deliberately b-movie ironic. So I put it on and there's muffled talking over a black screen. Like there was a physical sheet or cover over the camera as it was rolling. At this point I thought it was just a "le so bad it's good" introduction to the movie and that's when someone aggressively pulls the sheet or cover off the camera, there's that moment where the camera tries to adjust to light in what turns out to be a bedroom. Someone's picked up the camera at this point. There's a fuzziness and lack of focus and it's clearly not an expensive camera. Then the guy behind the camera starts swearing under his breath and it's clearly Mike. Distinctively so. There's a weird rapidness and heavy breathing in his voice and he's clearly drunk. He aimlessly zooms in and out on shit around the room. He finally corrects the zoom and contrast and he pans across to a bed. And Jessi is fucking sitting there wearing jeans, but topless. What the fuck? She looks coked up and like she's been crying cause there's smudges around her eyes that you can see even from where Mike is. Then suddenly he gets really vocal and starts saying all this racist shit and he makes her repeat it. She doesn't seem into it at first but she's clearly getting horny. And then out of nowhere, and I'll never forget this, I hear this weird but immediately recognisable noise of a guy jacking off. Mike directs the camera down to his cock and he's shaking and the camera's shaking and he's just jacking his uncut cock as he makes Jessi keep saying this shit to him. Then it just stopped.
>my face when not a SINGLE RLM fanboy KEK has ever successfully refuted this copypasta, especially the bit about Mike's uncut cock
Just catched this on pirate bay.
What a shitload of diareah shit this crap was.
The fat guy kept running in place at the end of every scene trying to be funny.
He kept saying "I'm spacecop" like batman does in the nolan trilogy.
I would not recommend donating 2,000 dollars ever again to their patreon like I did to invest in this flick. I thought I was going to be an investor and they would call me up and share profits. But all they did was send me 10 copies of space cop. What the fuck
Did you see Feeding Frenzy and the charisma-free asshole they hired to play the lead?
They're better off playing the roles themselves. And that's what the fans want to see anyway.
