For all the joy that our favourite movies bring us by being clever and funny and exciting, there is another level of enjoyment altogether that comes with giving them a little poke in their flaws. Nothing makes it clear how much you love something like an affectionate roast. And no one loves movies quite like the guys at Cinema Sins. They have made it their mission to give every movie a thorough critique, with every plot hole, every clumsy moment, every hastily made decision exposed. No release is immune from the treatment and this week they’ve taken on Deadpool. (more…)
Guardians of the Galaxy has been one of Marvel’s biggest success stories this year, but we live in a world basked in pessimism. Thusly, with everyone having access to the Internet, and myriad platforms for people to pine and criticize – anyone can be a critic these days. Therefore, it was only a matter of time before the folks at Cinema Sins would eventually nit-pick at the intergalactic summer blockbuster subjecting it to a heavy beating in the proverbial boxing ring. As per usual, Cinema Sins are just as ruthless and merciless with Guardians of the Galaxy as they are with all their other movie dissections. So, don’t dive in expecting any leniency on their part, as they pick the recent blockbuster apart. (more…)
Once upon a time, Marvel Comics was being dragged hopelessly into bankruptcy. In order to stay afloat, they sold off precious movie rights to their most popular characters. That money helped enable them to create their own studio, and that’s why we get to see awesome films like ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy.’ Those film companies would become rivals and prove themselves incapable of regularly releasing hits starring the Marvel properties. An attempt at making a good Hulk movie bombed and the rights went back home. Same deal with Daredevil. But Spiderman is a longshot. Sony Pictures is dead set on keeping that property, even if that have to reboot it every few years – origin story rehash included! And Cinema Sins and Screen Junkies will be there to point at them and laugh. Welcome to 19 whole minutes of blasting the crapfest that is ‘The Amazing Spiderman 2.’ (more…)
The Dark Knight trilogy is simply the best three films of the entire Batman franchise, but fans of the Christopher Nolan epic hold the Dark Knight a bit closer to their cowls. It was arguably the most balanced of the trilogy and is still held in high regard five years after its release, although it does have faults that annoy even the purest Batman fan.
So the fellas over at Cinema Sins decided it was time to bring reality crashing down on us in a hilarious four-minute video pointing out every “sin” the Dark Knight committed. They even bring up points you may have missed after numerous viewings, some of which actually make sense. We would spoil the ending for you, but some people just want to watch the world burn.
Check out the clip below and see how many of your own theories you can pick out:
How well do you score? Or were you too busy saying “Really!” through all of this?
For those looking for a double dose of head scratching revelations, Cinema Sins has covered The Dark Knight Rises as well and we’re guessing Batman Begins is somewhere in the batcave.
Movie bashing is a popular sport among the masses, particularly those with an inflated view of their movie knowledge. Hell, all you have to do is read enough of our own NerdBastards stuff to see how much we like to pick on films. Most of the time it’s just people whining that things in a film weren’t the way they wanted them to be. One group that goes by the name of Cinema Sins appears to be giving movies a more thorough run-down. Their first victim is Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man, a movie that received a mixed reception from both Spidey fans and movie lovers alike.
It’s 2 minutes and 15 seconds long and manages to cram 53 “movie sins” in. Most of them are legit, and some of them are not-so-legit, but it’s pretty amusing none-the-less.
If you like their style, you can head to their YouTube page and let them know what movie you want them to bash next.
