Why Has ‘Mother!’ Failed To Charm Mainstream Audiences?

It’s not often that a film scores a perfect F on Cinemascore, but that’s the feat that mother! has pulled off. It joins such illustrious films as I Know Who Killed Me and Disaster Movie in achieving this. Audiences are, in general, not really taking to this film. I’m one of those audience members who really does not care for this film (To put it lightly), so here are five reasons why audiences are not loving the film. WARNING: I will be spoiling key elements of the movie in this article and it will not be under a spoiler cut, so if you want to go into the movie blind, bookmark and come back later.

We Need To Talk About Rotten Tomatoes

Uploaded to MoviePilot on the 14th September, 2017

So, this one I actually am going to upload something different than the rest of them. Everything else I’ve copied from my Creators/MoviePilot account I did minor edit’s to fix typos I noticed but here I’m gonna upload the original version of my Rotten Tomatoes piece because when I uploaded it, the piece got edited down to 2000 words and I feel like a lot of the punch was removed from the piece in that form. I did the edits there because I understood it was their site and their standards had to be abided by… it’s my site now, the only standards that matter here are my own so here’s my original version. It might have fewer pictures than it probably should because I can’t find all the ones I used originally, but the text is what matters. Warning, this one’s long, go get a drink.

How Hollywood Could’ve Made A Good ‘Emoji Movie’. You Know, If They Actually Tried!

So… how about The Emoji Movie huh? That sure was a movie. Oh god, that was a movie, can you believe how much of a movie that movie was? It was totally a movie that just… kill me.

So I’ve talked before about the concept of bad movies and how the thing that makes a bad movie watchable is a sense of passion. You can read all about those thoughts in my totally cool article about good bad movies. This movie is not one of those, it’s a bad bad movie with a bad bad plot by bad bad writers with a bad bad concept. While a lot has been said about how bad this movie is, what’s never mentioned is that the idea of a film about Emoji’s isn’t exactly awful. It could work, it could absolutely work, it just needs to be altered a little.

Since I had to suffer through an hour and a half of The Emoji Movie, here is my pitch for a version that would be infinitely better than the one we got. Granted, that’s not saying much, but still.

David Hasselhoff Music Videos: The Definitive Ranking

On August 6, Marvel unveiled their latest advertising gimmick for the Guardian’s Of The Galaxy DVD. That gimmick? A great slice of retro cheese in the form of a music video starring the king of the 80s and 90s, David Hasselhoff.

Upon watching it I was thrilled because I genuinely love David Hasselhoff music videos and indeed his music in general. Sure he’s not the greatest singer, but I’ll be damned if he’s not having the most fun. I think the viral nature of this video means it’s safe to say that the world is finally ready to catch up with this iconic musical artist in all his glory.

‘It’s A Scream, Baby’: Wes Craven’s 5 Most Terrifying Scenes

Uploaded to MoviePilot on August 30th 

It’s been two years since Wes Craven passed away. One of the true masters of horror, Wes was known for his ability to craft a scene so intense that it’d have everyone sitting on the edge of their seats with fear. He created the iconic Nightmare on Elm Street franchise and helmed the Scream series, making true classics of the genre that will forever be remembered. Today, I want to talk about the individual sequences that became some of the most terrifying moments in cinematic history and should be remembered as a part of this man’s incredible legacy.

We Need To Talk About TV Shows Based On Apps

Uploaded to MoviePilot on August 24th

2017 is apparently the year that the apps are taking over the entertainment industry in shocking ways. It began with The Emoji Movie, a movie that is so iconically bad it has 8% on Rotten Tomatoes, which is genuinely incredible when you consider that a movie where a drag queen eats dog shit has an 80%. That comparison alone should tell you everything.

‘Sense8’ Gets An Offer For A New Home… An Adult Entertainment Site

Uploaded on MoviePilot August 19th 2017

This was a news piece that I thought was kinda hilarious at the time, I still do. It’s probably no longer relevant, I’m sure this was denied by those involved, but it’s still being archived. I did end up being asked to turn my news piece into an article exploring why this was a good thing which I did, so that’s why it goes on beyond “Oh my god, a porn site is doing a thing”

Yes, you read that headline correctly. No, It’s not a joke.
