Guns, girl, and the joy of life

2 years, 6 months ago at Oct 17 3:15

I wonder why it had so limited theatrical release. It is fun to watch, it has guns, a lot of shooting, a lot of good jokes, etc. It has all ingredients of a blockbuster except of zillions of computer generated images. But more or less nobody had a chance to see it in a theater.

There are not only guns, but also knives and killings and a lot of blood. All this is to be taken at the s... read more

Despite a fairly small viewership, Bobcat Godtwait's pitch-black comedy "God Bless America" has proved to be somewhat controversial since it's release, which was no doubt what Goldtwait intended. Rumors abound about it's 'glorification of violence,' 'tasteless content,' and so-called 'Liberal agenda.' So here I am to weigh in my two cents.

First of all, the allegation that the fi... read more

That's right, written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, yup, the crazy guy from the Police Academy movies.
If I had known that at the beginning of the movie I may not have watched it either (sorry Bobcat), I'm glad I didn't, because I watched it, loved it and was blown away when I found out who wrote/directed it. I greatly enjoyed this movie (probably not for everyone, dark humor for sure) ... read more

Fed up with the cruelty and stupidity of American culture, an unlikely duo goes on a killing spree, killing reality TV stars, bigots and others they find repugnant.

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: March (35 movies items)

"March 21-22 "I am offended. Not because I got a problem with bitter, predictible, whining millionaire disc jockeys complaining about celebrities or how tough their life is, while I live in an apartment with paper-thin walls next to a couple of Neanderthals who, instead of a baby, decided to give birth to some kind of nocturnal civil defense air raid siren that goes off every fucking night like it's Pearl Harbor." Technically this movie is flawed, but the actual comedy, satire and dialogue is"

Venomously Funny Satire

“Despite a fairly small viewership, Bobcat Godtwait's pitch-black comedy "God Bless America" has proved to be somewhat controversial since it's release, which was no doubt what Goldtwait intended. Rumors abound about it's 'glorification of violence,' 'tasteless content,' and so-called 'Liberal agenda.' So here I am to weigh in my two cents.

First of all, the allegation that the film is political propaganda is pure bollocks. Despite the mockery of extreme right-wingers and 'Obama-as-Hitler' ridiculousness, "God Bless America" proves to be, like it's protagonist Frank, largely politically neutral.

By the beginning of the film, Frank (Joel Murray) is enraged and psychotically angry. Drinking and fantasizing about killing the inconsiderately loud next-door couple and their b” read more

burnodo posted a review 2 years, 4 months ago

“I liked the structure of this movie and even a lot of what it had to say as social commentary. However, the blase-blase attitude the film had about killing should have been one of the things Frank had a problem with...movies and entertainment that have devalued life to the point where so many of these Jersey Shore watching types might have no compunction about picking up a gun and 2nd Amendment-ing people without so much as shedding a tear. After that unbelievably long sentence, let me just say that God Bless America was a fairly interesting film and I encourage people to acquire their own take on the points being made.” read more

"God Bless America has so much potential for being a freshly comedic take on the Bonnie and Clyde storyline, with additional disdain for today's mainstream culture. Instead, this film comes off as far too preachy for me to enjoy very much. It goes on a downward spiral after the first third, implicating its ridiculous tone for the sake of ridiculousness, rather than actually trying to make a point. Its events are unbelievable, but its tone is even harder to connect with. "

Bad, but Honest reviews of my Instant Queue (111 movies items)

" Great concept, hahaha, some of the dialog is a little out of touch with reality though, especially with the things the female character says, overall can't complain too much this movie is good."

There are not only guns, but also knives and killings and a lot of blood. All this is to be taken at the same time lightly and seriously. The main characters, Frank and Roxy, kill only bad guys, but for them the bad guys are not the usual blockbuster villains, but fairly common people. If you cannot stand a lot of blood, stay away from this movie.

Tara Lynn Barr plays Roxy with charming spontaneity and joy. Joel Murray plays Frank a little bit heavy, but probably, the script is at fault, not he.” read more

September Movie Journal - Xanadon't (28 movies items)

" Having my hatred echoed as concerns a bunch of America's ridiculous fixations and wayward ideals is a fun enough way to pass the time. But ultimately it felt like something of an empty exercise. Still, the movie comes out swinging so hard that it's difficult to ignore. "

Movies the giraffe watched: September 2012 (31 movies items)

"First viewing - Sept. 11th/12th God Bless America aims its arrows at one of the easiest imaginable targets. That's fine. But rather than offering any insight or developing its characters, the movie feels like a way for the screenwriter to simply air out as much of his anger as he can; this makes the characters' thoughts and ideas feel inconsequential and inserted, rather than organic to their personalities. You see, the movie features an excessive amount of scenes in which a character simply s"

"Sometimes satire should be quiet, subtle and inferred and sometimes it should be loud, aggressive and PISSED THE FUCK OFF!!! And that's exactly what needed to happen here and Bobcat did it right. You can't just nudge nudge our current culture. You gotta smash it over the fucking head with a two by four. The anger and violence is so comforting. "

"What more can I write about this film that has not already been said. I have read about how many fans think that it is a cross between Natural Born Killer and Idiocracy. While the wanting to compare is understandable, I believe that it is selling this film short. It is not for the faint of heart, but this is one of the best films for social commentary about the state of the nation. It is actually pretty damn depressing because it is true. Find this film and watch it today, dammit! "
