    I can watch/listen to movie overdubs all day :) Great fun!

    It was real quiet at my office until I saw this and went “Bwahaha!!”….kinda made a scene.

    Nice. Really emphasizes how bad the dialogue is, and how good acting can transform bad dialogue into something passable.

    • IronEdithKidd says:

       Provocative, well-done dialogue would greatly distract from the CGI and explosions.  It’s supposed to be a blockbuster, not an art-house film, dammit.

      • penguinchris says:

        What I liked about the others in this series was that they tried to blend art house and blockbuster sensibilities, and were reasonably successful at it. Now, though, I’m wondering if the dialogue in the other films was just as bad and I’m just misremembering, having been distracted by the CGI and explosions :)

          Batman Begins had plenty of cheesy dialogue, especially near the end. The second movie seemed better in that regard.

      • Cowicide says:

        Are you sure the dialogue isn’t CGI?

        • IronEdithKidd says:

          In the case of James Cameron movies, the dialogue is CGI.  With the Nolans, I’m not as certain.

    Does this mean it’s okay to like Pee-Wee Herman again? There was quite a few years there where he was scum of the earth.

      Pee-Wee Herman has always been cool, but Paul Reubens was definitely over-exposed for a while.

       It was always okay to like Pee-Wee.
      Most great actors, artists and authors have a dark side, a place of pain that helps inspire them to reach for the light of beauty.
      He was just unlucky and careless enough to ‘expose’ his, so to speak, heh heh.

    • pahool says:

      I doubt he was ever regarded as “scum of the earth” by anyone who bothered to read the details of his arrests.

      • Boundegar says:

         Butbutbut… he looked at pornography!  What kind of horrible human being would ever look at pornography?  Particularly, stars of seemingly kids’ TV shows, surely would never commit this heinous act?

      I never stopped in the first place.

      I saw his Pee-Wee’s Playhouse stage show in LA a few years ago (before it went to NY) and it was excellent; he’s maintained a fairly low profile the past few years but is really stepping it up now. The reputation he had was completely unfair but rather than lashing out to defend himself, he’s given it lots of time, working on small projects in the mean time until the general public doesn’t care anymore. That’s pretty classy for someone in his position, IMO.

      And speaking of classy… when I saw his stage show, he arranged with a fan who flew to LA with his girlfriend to see the show so that they could come on stage with him, and propose to his girlfriend literally inside Pee-Wee’s Playhouse. They apparently met or realized a connection because they both loved Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.

         Was the secret word “yes?”

        • penguinchris says:

          Heh… it was very sweet and he did work in some Pee-Wee references to his proposal but I don’t remember the details. 

          I think the secret word during the actual show was something like “if” ;)

      Besides the fact that nobody gave a shit, it was more than two decades ago.

    • AwesomeRobot says:

      Honestly, I found little reason to dislike him all along.

       Thank you for asking. We’ll tell you what you should think when we feel like it. Now go sit down, keep quiet, and wait for our next directive.

    I just watched this twelve times in a row.  Ha-HA! 

  7. BrotherPower says:

    Yeah, don’t worry, this movie was already destined for a lot of unintentional hilarity.

    Pee Wee should do the voices for EVERYBODY. Whenever the pope or some big shot says something weighty, let Pee Wee voice it. That would keep everyone in their place.

      Presidential debates PLEASE!
      Could be verbatim, or throw in the occasional “I know you are but what am I?”

        Not clear if different.
