IG is Back with the Men in Black... 3 Review

Well well well, look who has decided to show up after a month of nothing. Weekly videos my ass.
No, it's not the new IG episode, he says that will be out this weekend. *prepares the protective armor* Bring it on!

Instead, we're treated to a review of Men in Black 3. Yeah I'm surprised too, I thought his movie reviews were dead, especially when he didn't do his Top Ten list.
"But wait, MIB3 doesn't come out until tomorrow" He actually has a reason, he got an early screening.No objections here.

The review itself though is pretty bad. Right off the bat you can tell he didn't see the first two movies as he said he "didn't know what to expect". Then he describes it as a "type of time travel movie" while telling us why Agent J has to go back in time. Or to put it in familiar terms, "Men in Black 3 is one of those time travel movies. Lost in the ocean of time travel movies."
He also says not to expect something on the same caliber as The Avengers. Why the FUCK would you compare this to The Avengers? The two are completely different genres! Just because they're both based on comic books doesn't mean they're the same! Bores continues to show us he is the "master of comparisons". Just like how Skylanders is like God of War.
Why not compare it to the first two movies? There's a reason it's called Men in Black THREE! This continues to show he didn't see the first two, which makes me wonder why he would go to a pre-screening in the first place.

That's really all I have to say about this video. It's barely two minutes long and it's no different from his other movie reviews. I just made this post so I can have something new. So if he's right about his new episode coming this weekend, then grab some whiskey and get ready. The Pixel Demon is coming... whatever that means.

  1. Wow...Bores...wow. I still can't believe that he can do so much wrong in a really short video.

  2. To be fair, He did post this "review" the day before the movie is supposed to come out, not to mention he tried (a bit too hard IMO) to avoid spoilers.

    When he says he "didn't know what to expect", that a relative term, sequel or not you go to see a new movie(unless you read spoilers) you don't know what to expect.

    Maybe he compared it to The Avengers because Avengers is the hit of the summer so far. Plus they do have some similarities. Both movies involve aliens try to take over earth(I'm counting both MIB 1 & 2) Both have a team constructed constructed by the government to defend earth, Oh and I may be wrong on this but Marvel owns the Men in Black franchise.

    Granted he should have mentioned the prequels to MIB3, but oh well.

    P.S. Batdan, you really make IG videos sound worse then they are. They are terrible don't get me wrong though.

    1. Considering how insightful his past movie reviews were, it's no wonder he avoids spoilers. Spoilers would require to actually say something other than broad, generic statements.

    2. I'm not convinced that he actually watches the movies he reviews.

    3. Yeah, It was published by Aircel Comics, who were bought out by Malibu, who was bought by Marvel. (who was bought out by Disney)

  3. I highly doubt Bores knew there was ever a 'Men in Black' comic. Most people don't.

  4. Bores "review" was obviously egostatic. It looked more like an excuse to brag that he got a pre-screening of the film rather than actually..well...review the film. Once again, his review is all opinion, and no elaboration; no surprise there. It is less review and more bragging rights for Bores.

  5. I had a..."conversation" with LadyBuggin in the comments of the Spyro video. It was...interesting...and impossibly stupid.

    1. What, did she say something that makes Bores look like even more of an idiot than usual? Like when she revealed she chose the contest winners?

    2. I found an argument about BatDanNight, and wanted to see how she would describe you to someone who didn't know who you were. A bit of an experiment, if you will. I just started having fun with it by the end, though.

      "Me: Who the hell is BatDanNight? I've seen you mention him a few times, but seriously, who is this guy?

      LB: LOL he is this really desperate guy that blogs against I.G. in attempt to make I.G. bend & break to his will. He complains about how his boyfriend avgn is the only man alive that is allowed to be on Utube making angry video game reviews .... isn't that histerical! He also gets very "catty" about me (I am I.G.'s mom) and claims I block hater trolls that speak agaisnt the Irate Gamer when in actuality BatDanNight blocks & deletes ANYONE that speaks in favor of I.G. lol Mainly he is jsut jealous.

      LB: Jealous you may ask? Well I guess he tried his hand at Utube video's and it never took off. He more or less got boo'd of the stage of the internet. So now he has dedicated his life's work to bringing down the IrateGamer and anyone that supports I.G. which includes me. My guess is he will blog till his last dying breath trying to prove his opinion's on I.G. will end Christopher's reputation & popularity as being a guy who just likes making video game reviews with anger, humor, and hard work. Sad

    3. Cont.

      Me: I checked out this "BatDan" guy and I have to say...it looks like he's just doing to I.G./Chris/your son what your son does to games and, by extension developers. He offers commentary in a humorous, occasionally angry manner. It's like saying a movie critic is "jealous" of the director he's panning. It doesn't make much sense.

      LB: Naw, I was right the first time he is one jealous leech ~

      Me: well, do you have any PROOF that BatDan tried to make videos on Youtube before making that blog?

      LB: LOL you need to check out batdanmn's channel (youtube/batdanmn) so you can see first hand. You won't be disappointed, I promise ~ lmao~

      Me: That's definitely not his channel. On "batdanmn"'s page, you can see "BatDanNight" on a "List Of People I've Owned." Why would he put his own name on a list like that? That channel's a fake, like the fake Irate Gamer, TeamFourStar and CardGamesFTW accounts people put up to fake people out.

      LB: I didn't say it was batdannights channel? Where did I claim that? All I said is it will explain what I stated comments ago. That parody channel gives you proof of what I said in the first place. What are you some hater troll? If you would research the question you asked of me you would not be acting like that I assure you ~

      Me: I asked you to show me proof that BatDanNight made unsuccessful videos. you send me a channel of someone who is pretending to be him. You in no way answered my question. And no, I'm not a "hater troll." I'm asking legitimate questions.

      LB: And I gave you the proof ... If you can read then you will be fine on that channel page I gave you. What part of "I told you" don't you understand?

      LB: Look under where is says, "Video game guru has returned" on the channel page I stated :D

      Me: but that's not him, as I said. Therefore, it'd be like me making a fake account that said "IrateGaner" instead of "IrateGamer" and making false claims about Chris.

      LB: You don't understand he (batdanmn) took those actual words FROM BatDanNights actual wordings .... understand? BatDanNight "originaly" posted that "himself!" Then batdanmn set up HIS channel to mock him! This is the last I will reply to you as I think it is going right over your freakin' head. Sorry but you are wearing on my last nerve. :(

      Me: I will ask again - where is your proof? Evidence is everything in an argument. No evidence, no argument.

      LB: Argunment? I never was arguing???? You asked a question, I answered. Simple as that! You are really going out of your way trolling me, aren't you :)~

      Me: Why yes, yes I am

  6. @MortalKombat2007

    I have to disagree with you a bit. He didn't seem so egotistical about it. He wasn't really rubbing it in like he does with E3.
    Also, a review is an opinion. His lack of elaboration was probably, as I said, was to avoid spoilers. Given that he probably didn't see the prequels, (and too lazy to look them up) he had no idea what to say about it.

    Once again just another shitty video put together because he got something for free.

  7. Hola peoplez. Anyway, if anyone's got time to be reading blogs, check out mine. Though I warn, some of what I post is just utter garbage. Keep up what ya doing Bats, maybe one day Bores will get it (even if I don't care about him).

    1. I don't think that Bores will ever get it. Someone PMed him the list that Guru Larry made in the last entry and he brushed it off with one of those "Don't criticize unless you think you can do better" responses.

  8. Just saw James' update on the movie.

    Let's see if people will STILL think of that as a scam to get the money from the donations.

  11. Just so you know, a lot of movies will have "pre-screening" that you have to buy tickets for. I highly doubt that he got invited to anything. Plus at the end he says" I'd like to thank the movie theater". Yeah, I'm sure they love that you thank them without giving their name. Great publicity, you moron.

    1. Good point. If he had been invited to a preview in his capacity as a film critic, he'd thank the studio. Except that film critics don't do that because previewing films is their job, not a favor. But the point is, he saw a pre-screening. And probably wore a tuxedo to it and flashed a multicolored plastic badge with his picture and anti-counterfeiting microchips and holograms to get past the security guards in red velvet uniforms.

  14. Much like Tekken 6 and Ninja Gaiden 3, Bores is going in with no frame of reference and is completely clueless about how to handle this sort of review.
    The Avengers is an ensemble superhero movie, and Men In Black 3 is an entry in a franchise that people only wouldn't know about if they were living under a rock for 15 years. Even though the Men In Black comic may not be well-known, the movies aren't exactly obscure-they were among Will Smith's many $100 million-plus grossing movies from 1996-2008. This begs the question on how the hell Bores could not have seen them. The first movie was a big hit in its day, there was a cartoon that ran from 1997-2002, an incredible amount of merchandise, and even though the second movie got a load of bad press, it still made a decent amount of money.
    With all this publicity, how the fuck did Bores not know that there were two other movies? Was the 3 in the title not enough of a clue?
    But enough of this. I intend to see the movie soon. Critics and my friends are saying that it's better than MIB 2, and I look forward to seeing Josh Brolin as 1960s K from his work as a Coen Brothers regular.

  15. Am I the only one who really wants to see the original MIB comics collected? They're like my personal holy grail of comics, since used copies are outrageously expensive. And they missed out on a great oppurtunity to release a collection in time for the new movie. Maybe they would have to work out a deal with MIB co-creator Lowell Cunningham since he apparently owns the trademark.

    And BatDanNight, did you ever seriously try making videoes on Youtube?

    1. Kind of. In high school I made a some really bad video game reviews that I don't want anyone to see. I made a Facebook group of it and that's where *ahem* that guy got the description text for his channel.
      That's all I'll say.

    2. no worries, man, everyone has an old shame. I tried the reviewing thing, too, years and years back. didn't work out too well

  16. MIB was the biggest movie of the summer of 1997, got rave reviews, launched Will Smith's career into the stratosphere (along with ID4 the year before) and is still looked back upon with fond nostalgia. Bores is old enough to remember all of this so how is it that he shows complete and utter ignorance of MIB? Even if he never saw the movie (which he clearly hasn't) the points I made before should be known to anyone who would do a review like this.

    I'm also going to be shocked if his new Irate Gamer Show episode is online by the end of tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I wonder if next weekend's newspaper ads for MIB3 will have a giant quote from Chris: "I'm always a sucker for those time-travel-type movies and this one follows that same path of where Will Smith has to go back in time and prevent something from happening!!!" - Chris Bores, Irate Gamer Show

    1. Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a lot of people have the day off from work/school. So it's still considered the weekend. If it doesn't come out tomorrow, then it's another broken promise.

    2. IG missed a deadline? Wow, THAT never happens.

    3. Well let's see if he actually releases it this time. Hopefully this one is over five minutes in length.

  19. Except he said "We are just a day or two away from the new episode of the Irate Gamer being uploaded." Check below the video itself on Youtube- that much is already a lie.

  20. He's probably still adding explosions.

  21. Just checked Bores' Facebook. He says that he's working on rendering the video so he says that it should be up within a couple hours. Though he said that two hours ago so it could either be up tonight or tomorrow if all this is true.

  22. It's up. It's Silver Surfer. *sighs* And I thought I was mentally prepped for this.
