  3. Cameron Edwin (Jim Gaffigan), the host of a failing children's science TV show called "Above & Beyond", has always had aspirations of being an astronaut. After a mysterious space-race era satellite coincidentally falls from space and lands in his backyard, his midlife crisis manifests in a plan to rebuild the machine into his dream rocket. As his relationship with his wife (Rhea Seehorn) and daughter (Katelyn Nacon) start to strain, surreal events begin unfolding around him -- a doppelgänger moving into the house next door, a car falling from the sky, and an unusual teenage boy forging a friendship with him. He slowly starts to piece these events together to ultimately reveal that there's more to his life story than he once thought.

    Just the general awfulness. Ridiculous scripts from a plot pov - relying on ridiculous co-incidences and sub sitcom bullshit. (e.g: 4 Weddings when Grant walks out door but is later revealed to be standing up on a cabinet sink - utter shit). Terrible, unnatural dialogue scripts - full of lines that are purely, obviously joke setups, 'joke' characters i.e. the characters have no inner life other than to be kooky, 'joke' characters whose existence is purely to be mocked for being ugly, stupid, fat, boring, slutty, disabled - you name it, he's got it. If a character with a disability is portrayed positively, then it's completely through the lens of that disability s it's the sum total of their character. Foreigners are funny caricatured weirdos, except for Americans who are magical, mystical, beautiful creatures from space - but they're flaky. Being alone makes men charming, treating women poorly makes men charming, being alone makes women needy and desperate and a figure of fun, or makes them bitter and they will pine forever for main character. Letting a mate have sex with your girlfriend is a jape.

     

    Oh, and lets not forget that bit in Four Weddings where a character, attempting to speak to a deaf man, makes mistakes in signing, and through the subtitles we see that she has mixed up worlds like "nice" with "mice" because, apparently, in Curtisworld, sign languages share the same linguistic similarity as spoken language, to the extent that the same jokes would happen or are likely.

     

    Piss poor.

  6. Let's have 'em, the infuriating bits in movies and TV shows that really f**k you off. Those little moments where the suspension of disbelief comes crashing to the floor, the plot goes to crap, there's an acting malfunction, the VFX are a letdown, or that "clever" twist makes you feel like you've been kicked in the sensitives by Mister Deus ex Machina.

     

    Here's one to start things off. It sprang to mind unbidden for some reason today, but it annoyed me even though it was quite a while since I last watched the movie it's from...

     

    Tomorrow Never Dies - the helicopter chase.

    I appreciate that Bond movies stretch the limits, but surely at least one person in the production team must've raised the point that this is just f**king stupid?

    After a motorcycle chase through building seemingly made of matchsticks, Bond and Wai-Lin are pursued by a helicopterbut get stuck in a crowd of pedestrians who hamper their progress. The pilot of the helicopter is laden with bad guys armed with fully automatic weapons decides the best option is to tilt the helicopter forward in a physics-defying maneouvre to attempt to chop up the heroes (and presumably many pedestrians) with the spinning rotors. Instead of instantly pitching the aircraft into the floor, shattering the rotor-blades, and dumping the crew to the ground in a fireball, the helicopter moves slowly forward at an impossible angle.

    But bond escapes into (Oh no!) a dead end. Forced back out into the street he sees the helicopter still waiting, still hovering at a bizarre angle, unmoving thanks, I assume, to some sort of anti-gravity tech that evil baddie Elliot Carver must have invented. Bond and Wai-Lin do a stunt, sliding under the rotors and throwing some handy bunting up into the helicopter tail rotor causing it to lose control, crash into a building, and explode.

    It disgusts me (although it's redeemed slightly by the brief cut at the end where you can see the helicopter is filled with manequins before it blows up).

     


    Let 'em roll...

  7. I knew the words quite early, got complacent, and then made a bunch of stupid moves (partially because I was watching TV at the same time instead of concentrating).

    That's even weirder. 

     

    I've tried silly things like putting on English (CC) Subtitles and still nothing. I wondered if it's an age thing but Mayans MC is quite recent isn't it. 

     

    I will send an email over to their customer services team but I don't imagine I'll get a reply as it's not going to make them anymore money from me. 

     

    I tried switching subtitles on manually too, but all that happened was that we got subtitles for the English bits IIRC. It was the latest season of Mayans, so quite recent to D+.

    What the fuck is up with Disney+ not subtitling Foreign Language segments in their programs. 

     

    I've seen it a few times now, but trying to watch "Touch" is pointless since a character in the first episode speaks Arabic (thanks subtitles for letting me know that's what their speaking) and then in the second we have Russian (Thanks again subs for letting me know that is what it is).

     

    I don't mind it for little bits like in Reservation Dogs when you know can work out the word is a "hello" or a "goodbye" but when whole parts of the Episode require you know to know what they are saying it seems stupid not too.

     

     

    It's hit and miss too - we were watching Mayans MC the other week and a whole section of Spanish dialogue had no subtitles. In the following episode, the same characters had their dialogue subtitled!
