    Is this movie supposed to be scary?

    That trailer scared me.

  • JacquesCousteauJacquesCousteau Registered User regular
    I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this movie from the trailer. Watched it in the youtube thread last month or so and I've shown it to a few people since then. Just. Not sure. I haven't seen it but I'm pretty sure Bobcat's strengths aren't those that are capable of handling this movie's premise in a way that isn't just some cathartic grindhouse insanity.

    well there's one good thing about this movie

    if I keep an eye out for people who suggest it is in any way good I can easily assemble a list of people who are awful and/or insane

    With “God Bless America,” writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait has manufactured an exhilarating sensation of disgust, funneling a reservoir of frustration into an acidic script that somehow manages to be hilarious while remaining enormously unnerving. It’s a sniper-sure shot of rage striking the heart of American culture, having a blast wiping away the scum of the Earth. It’s a chaotic tear through reality shows, social irritants, and amateur singing contests that’s finessed superbly by the helmer, who commits in full to a lunatic idea. Even for a filmmaker who’s made pictures about bestiality, autoerotic asphyxiation, and alcoholic clowns, “God Bless America” still manages to astonish with its audacious content and ballsy execution. It’s a couch potato battle cry capturing the zeitgeist in a bold, bloody fashion.

    Enjoying mindless dreck means you are insane? Shit, better go lock up everybody who ever watch a Saw movie, or anything Michael Bay ever made. Shit, I love the Evil Dead trilogy, perhaps I'm a disgusting monster?

    Seriously this. Is some girl who wants to make it big on American Idol really the linchpin of the rot eating up the United States?

  • UbikUbik another one of the law guys Registered User regular
    “God Bless America” doesn’t shy away from the premise, instead jumping into the adrenaline rush of murder, observing Frank and Roxy brainstorm their kill list, sharing their repulsion with a world that celebrates high-fives, strippers-turned-screenwriters, and amateur singers.

    oh the horror of high-fives

    I've never seen any of them. And whilst they are absolutely without merit, a person enjoying them is not automatically a bad person.

    Do you even get that you are doing the same thing as the character in this movie? "You like/do this = you are automatically the worst person ever"

    To steal from the film’s director during his post-SXSW screening Q&A, Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America is a violent film about kindness. Because unlike other, lesser films to which this one will undoubtedly be compared — the likes of Kevin Smith’s Red State or (gasp) Uwe Boll’s Rampage – the violence is easily overshadowed by the simple, elemental philosophy behind Frank’s spree: he only kills those who deserve to die.

    you heard it here folks!

    a high school girl deserves to die

    fans of a tv show deserve to die

    a dude capturing evidence of Frank's 4 murders deserves to die!

    Man I was hoping this would at least be a clever parody or, like Solar also hoped, would at least subvert the entire thing and make people who sympathise as well as relate to the main character feel awful.

    Disappointed it does and is neither of these things.
