A movie from a Disney tween com that lampoons reality TV? What could possibly go wrong?
For Shia LaBeouf you forgot “Eagle Eye”. And yes I read the list this time before posting. 🙂
I’ve been outdone. Congratulations!
Even Stevens was childish in tone already so I can’t completely be surprised that this was how they ended it all. In some respect I want to give the writer of this a pat on the back for at least trying to go after the idiocy of reality TV at a time when it was not only getting high ratings but also getting praise by the TV executives who considered cost of production a higher priority than the creativity and it was win-win for them.
One thing that is good about TV these days is that scripted TV has made a comeback and I hope with Netflix and Amazon’s influence that more VOD services will show up and provide everyone with the opportunity to make what they want knowing that there are those of us who want to watch them. Eventually no one will complain about not having a choice of cable channels because by the time the industry chooses to do that it will only be out of desperation given their outdated model is growing out of preference.
Can you review Tommy Wiseau’s the Neighbors? Its free on Hulu right now. It is the worst thing I’ve ever seen. Ever. EVER!
Haven’t reviewed a full web TV series yet, but that just might be one I should do. Will probably give it a year and then check it out.
The review is good, and the idea of reviewing Disney Channel movies is…okay, but I don’t think you should do that TOO much, the reason being that (despite popular belief) some Disney Channel movies are actually good (The Halloween Town movies, The Twitches movies, Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior, The Cheetah Girls movies, Sky High, Lemonade Mouth, Jump In, The Zenon movies, Tru Confessions) Plus, going after movies that are solely meant to entertain tween and teen girls, doesn’t seem fair (The exception being Teen Beach Movie), I can’t explain it, but it just feels wrong. Some people might say otherwise, but trust me on this. I just wanted to tell you that before you get a ton of comments saying, “You should do more of this” or they tell you to do the movies I just mentioned. Because you don’t wanna turn into one of “those” reviewers.
Don’t worry, I plan on being selective with which movies I’m going after. And keep in mind, the first Disney Channel movie I reviewed was “Angels in the Endzone,” which I don’t think was marketed for tween girls. In fact, the Disney Channel sports movies were some of its weaker ones.
