PostSubject: I miss the Snob's porn reviews    Fri May 20, 2016 9:22 am

There hasn't been a porn review by the Cinema Snob for a while now. Will there be anymore coming in the near future? I want to suggest the porn parodies by Wood Rocket. Some of them are XXX parodies of SpongeBob SquarePants, TMNT, Adventure Time & many others. There's enough nightmare fuel for Brad to work on for the fans & make them laugh. I hope to see more porn reviews again someday.

Considering Brad just released a DVD of all porn reviews, I'm guessing it might be a while before we get some more on the site. Honestly, I think they're better saved exclusively for DVD releases since they can be shown uncensored and thus provide more riffing material. None of the films on 'Unerotic Fantasies' could have worked in a censored version.

Plus, despite lifting the time restriction, somehow I think Brad will continue to focus just on '70s and '80s porn (which works for me, since those work far better for reviews).

What Skibz said.

I also believe that Brad wants to concentrate on other genres before having new porn reviews.
What would be cool is if he reviewed more stuff like "Alice in Wonderland -the x-rated musical". My opinion.

Brad's been all over the place genre-wise for the last year or two, especially after he lifted the year restriction. After doing exploitation exclusively for several years, I don't blame him if he has mounds and mounds of other offbeat or mainstream films he wants to start focusing on.

Admittedly, the whole reason I got into The Cinema Snob back in the YouTube days was because of his cult and exploitation reviews, so I tend to be slightly less enthused about stuff like 'A Madea Christmas', but not enough to complain about it.

I believe he meant that he just wanted to see more stuff like that.

1stly i only said that because there have been people on here that haven't gotten around to watch all his videos or they just plain forgot he did this or that film. 2ndly i'm thrilled he lifted his time limit and though i can understand what you mean but to be fair those movies deserve ripping and who else would do them justice? i mean in the dark sense of humor that Brad has! i am not 100% but i think he's done more religion films than Cannon films and that's what he decided to do this year. oh well i'm not going to NOT watch any of his videos.

and lastly that may be what he meant so if it was sorry about the confusion

Well, no, I'm not going to stop watching Brad's videos or leave angry comments or anything. I still enjoy his reviews because he's an objectively good writer and performer and I think he's done a lot of really funny stuff with modern movies, but my own personal preferences will always lie with his cult and exploitation reviews because that's what's closest to my own heart.

Really, it's like comparing 'MST3k' to Rifftrax: they're both hilarious, but the tone and attitude of the riffing is just very different when doing A-movies vs. Z-movies.

However, he did those types of movies on the show for so long that I totally understand why he'd want to trade something like 'Oversexed Rugsuckers from Mars' for 'Oogieloves'. The worst thing you can do as a writer is limit or restrict yourself, so I'm behind whatever Brad wants to do for the show.

so am i. i am tired of him doing so many religious movies but you know what? it doesn't piss me off because like you said it's him not restricting himself as a writer. plus like he said you do things so many times after all you will burn the fuck out, i don't know if his early stuff is the best like some may say. there are some films that he's done that have made me uncomfy like War Room and that was because that movie is just plain creepy as hell, more creepy than a damn horror movie!

plus who else would riff Oogie Loves? i mean with Brad's dark sense of humor he's the best one to do it.my favorite is when he does horror movies over the other type of films. i love it when he does films i love to death and an example would be Sleepaway Camp a few years back that film i love to death but upon watching it i could NOT stop laughing because i never realized how much of a gay tone that film has in it. i believe he really loves the film too if i'm not mistaken so it's done with love. course my favorites over that are films he does that i really hate to death i love it when he does that. Passion of the christ was a film i went and saw with a women when it came out back in (2004) it's an okay film i'm not a religious person but i did his snob of it. i don't know if anyone else riffed it but it was one of his best he's done that is religious i just think it's too bad he can't put a good portion of his episodes on dvd due to it's copy write.

he has to pretty much look into and pick certain titles to pick them to be put on dvd, which really sucks cause i'd love to have them all on dvd but sadly he can't afford to do that ya know?

I still enjoy Brad reviewing the Canon & Christploitation films.
I hope to see him to do "Masters of the Universe" & "Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2" next.

I am of the mindset where tackling on the newer films is really dis-interesting to me... It's either that or the character, to me he seems all the more ... How can I put it...... Not as snobby as he used to be. Though I will be frank his porn reviews never really held my interest.... Well, a majority of them but it is absolutely clear that the porno reviews were his specialty.

i dunno you may be right, there are some films i think he does put more snobbish into them than he does with others but than he's been doing teh show for 9 years now and it's no doubt harder to maintain as he's gotten older and the show as well. people say that the AVGN isn't as good as he used to be either but though Brad has far more episodes than James Rolfe does there's no question in that. with AVGN since he's a father now and did the film and other stuff on the site and doesn't do the Nerd quite as often as he used to do. the writing can really vary when it comes to the Nerd. his last one was a decent one but the Mega Man one i think it was? episode #139 was one of his best ones he had done in awhile.

as for Brad i like the fact that he's now doing newer films but i didn't expect him to be doing religious films, i'm not surprised either but than there's so many Genre's out there and so many different kind of films regardless of what year they came out in i am dying to see him do newer horror films well new as in past (1995) i've wanted him to do Scream for years. yeah i may love the film cause i don't take the film serious at all or any of them really. they are fun and well the 1st had a lot of tounge in cheek humor into it. it's not in my top 10 favorite horror films of all time though or even in my top 20. he's done films he's loved and gone easy on them i'm sure than you have a film like the war room that even gives me the creeps

and he's at his best. writing styles change in any artist and even on internet shows like his they change, i still enjoy his show so i'll watch it even after he decided to retire the character if he ever decides that. i hope he doesn't but than i wouldn't blame him if he did.

I feel he bounces to much as himself rather than the character now. He dies try to keep it subtle I will praise him for that.

Keeping the same character for almost a decade is indeed a tough thing to manage but in reality. He HAS the potential to keep it all together. Though his tackle on religious movies felt like it shoulda been a "DVD R Hell" episode. It feels good to hear brad be himself over those videoes than him as the snob. Since the view is all the more personal.

Speaking of which of modern movies when's he gonna tackle some post -VHS slasher movies that were always on chiller?

I can't help but feel that if he kept the original gimmick for every episode, it would grow very thin very fast. It is, basically, a one-joke concept: a pretentious film snob over-criticizes low-brow exploitation. Brad didn't start The Cinema Snob envisioning he'd ultimately churn out 300 episodes on a weekly basis for a living (and I didn't envision that I'd ultimately be watching his videos for nine years), so I absolutely understand why he'd want to branch out into different genres and reviewing styles to keep it fresh.

I struggle to think of an apt comparison, but it's like 'MST3k': the first season was almost exclusively 1950s monster movies, and while that stuff is awesome, it would lose some appeal if every single episode was a 1950s monster movie. It helps that they dipped into Russo-Finnish fantasy films, '90s sci-fi, '60s spy films, made-for-TV melodramas, etc., etc. The core concept of the show and its comedy was still the same.

Brad still busts out the character to varying degrees, but going back and looking at the oldest episodes, I do think the Snob angle is better in moderation, especially for longer episodes. I think it would be neat if he did a few short "throwback" episodes wholly reviving the gimmick, but I think he stands on his own merits as a critic and comedian to successfully inject enough of himself into his reviews.

actually you are wrong, the KTMA year had movies from the 60's; and 70's and i think the 80's too i don't have the list in front of me. and honestly i like the KTMA days if you watch that season in order you will see the growth of the show and yeah like any season they have weak ones but i enjoy the year never the less. anyways having said that i do agree that if Brad did keep doing the same thing all the time and the same writing style it would hurt the show and his writing too. look at AVGN again in the past few years even James Rolfe has said in various videos that as time went on and his show aged it's harder for him to keep it fresh than it used to be. that's how he burnt out doing so many episodes a few years back,

granted i wish he would do more Nerd episodes than he does and we still get good ones now and than but they aren't as good as they used to be. and that's due to the age of his show and also because he doesn't write nerd episodes as much as he used to. so that may suffer as well. at least with Brad he takes time off from doing it sure and i can understand that look at a good number of tv shows out there they are on so long they will tend to repeat themselves. the Original Dark Shadows went off the air and was cancelled more or less because they ran out of ideas and were starting to repeat themselves at the end. and the end of that show feels rushed cause it i think was cancelled much sooner than the storyline was suppose to end. with the Snob at least he bounces back between various types of movies. i am waiting for brad to do some newer horror films to be honest. also he's had episodes that are better than others and he will no doubt admit to that, but it really depends on the film he watches too and what material he comes up with. also it depends on your taste as well you may like certain episodes and hate others. gross out and Salo are 2 of my least favorite of his but others may love those. in short to each their own i guess

Not me. I don't care for his porn reviews. There's just not much replay value. Same goes for those religious exploitation movies he's been doing more and more of lately.
