Rum Doings Episode 152: OOoaaaRRaaaAAArgghhh SCHOOL

by on Jan.30, 2014, under Rum Doings

In our 152nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is: Cuh, still raining!

We begin lamenting the use of vowels in foreign, and then dissertate and expatiate on our favourite words. This somehow leads on to Christian-funded TV movies, which inevitably takes us to further discussions of Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish, comics, and movies.

Then comes the saga of the utter fruitcakes who try to talk to John on Twitter. There’s the idle nature of threats from publishers to gaming outlets, and John lists the reasons he hates Nick.

    My opinion of John has unfortunately gone down hearing that he dislikes Edgar Wright, I can kind of get Shaun of The Dead because I thought it was an ok movie and isn’t his best but Hot Fuzz and The Worlds End are hilarious movies and I would say perfectly constructed as movies. I even like Scott Pilgrim but only after watching it 3 times.

    I quite liked Attack The Block to be honest I didn’t think it was totally funny or totally scary but it had some nice character moments and a pretty good dramatic story that sucked you in. I agree though he was very defensive in his interview with Mark Kermode.

    I sometimes think watching a bad movie is worth it because it resets your expectations somewhat so the next few average movies are enjoyable. Furthermore it makes me feel like a real film critic because I can see all the things that make it inferior to other movies, which for any reasonably well made movie I can’t.

    Carbuncle has the same kind of mouth-feel as avuncular. I hardly ever get a chance to bust it out, though. :(

    The thing with Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz is that they’re just not as good as I wanted them to be. I liked them at the time, but with hindsight I wonder if that’s down to me forcing myself to enjoy them. Having lived for a time in the city that Hot Fuzz was filmed in probably helped with that predisposition.
