Br?no

This movie comes out today and I'm more than stoked. As a big fan of Da Ali G Show, this movie naturally sparks my interest. Judging by how funny he is on the t.v show and from what I've seen of the trailers, this movie will be epic. Who else is excited or a fan of Sacha's stuff? And who besides me is seeing it tonight?


Here's a link to my favorite Br?no moment on Da Ali G Show:

To be honest i think he is the most annoying person in the world. He was on Conan and wasnt funny at all, just acting stupid. Even Conan looked like he was getting ticked off. Then the whole MTV stunt was stupid too, i dont wanna see that. His accent needs to stop lol.

Sorry i just cant stand him and dont think its funny. Alot of my friends feel the same way and ive yet to talk to anyone looking forward to the movie haha. doubt it makes any money here. Borat wasnt that good either.

Bruno is bound to make a crap load of money. Borat made almost a quarter billion. Though it did have more coverage because of all the lawsuits. I still think it will do incredibly well. I watched that interview and to me he didn't seem like he was getting ticked off at all.

I can see where people are coming from that don't find it funny. I still think it's awesome though. The great thing about Sascha's work is that he exposes so much ignorant, hate and racism through satire. It's something not many other people are doing. Oh well, I've seen positive reviews and can't wait until tonight haha.

The making fun of racism and such is cool, its just he acts in such an annoying way that its not funny to me. Like i said, his accent makes me want to kill myself lol.On conan, he is usually laughing and making smart remarks about everything. With Bruno when he got little something shoved in his face, he kinda just stood there and pretended to smile. maybe its just me but he looked like "get this show over with already" there haha.

The minute I saw those commercials I knew I was just going to be another dumb movie and with movie tickets costing $10 I rather save that for movies like the new Harry Potter movie. Then again this seems to be a growing trend with movies lately, there's more and more dumb movies coming out, I can't even remember the last movie I saw in theaters, since it's been over a year.

I think Bruno is far from dumb. If anything it's smart. It's filled with social and political undertones. This is what makes Sascha's work funny. I understand if you don't like if but calling it dumb just doesn't seem right to me. I agree that the trend is dumb movies but again this movie is far from it.

I'm not sure if you were serious or not about Harry Potter... I mean really, Harry Potter? I grew out of that when I was twelve. If that sounds offensive it wasn't my intent haha.

I want to end the series by watching the movies, they are pretty good movies, no matter how much of a "kids" series it is, besides, I just someone with different movie tastes, I mean when I saw The Dark Night at the drive-in, the one and only time I saw it, I saw two movies that night, the other one being Get Smart and I much preferred Get Smart to The Dark Night, that movie to me was a mess and popular only because of Heath Ledger's death, similar to Michael Jackson's death sending his record sales skyrocketing.

Reviewers don't seem to be taking to Bruno too well though, it's average Metacritic score is 55, although users reviews are a bit more positive, 6.5 out of 10.

EDIT: Well I stand by my belief it's a dumb movie, if it's was South Park funny, I could live with it, but it doesn't seem to be that type of funny, it genuinely seems to just be going for shock value, maybe why they are releasing an edited version in at least the UK, so it gets a 15 rating instead of 18+ like the full version.

The problem is that people compare it to much to Borat. I think think if Bruno would have came out first than it would have received way higher of reviews. I think people were expecting it to be to much like borat. Being a fan of the show I knew that Bruno was way different and derived comedy in different ways. Also I think there are a lot of homophobes that wont watch.

I agree with the Michael Jackson thing being ridiculous how he's at the top of the charts but I think the success of The Dark Knight wasn't entirely because of Heath's death. I'm not the kind of guy that buys into the lives of celebrities or is sad if they die but I genuinely loved the movie. I think his death was part of the reason but not the only reason it was popular.

I get that you have different tastes and that's cool but saying Bruno is just another dumb movie is just wrong to say. Ali G fans will love the Bruno movie as I did but people that have only seen Borat may not. I think that's what it comes down to.

It was awesome but I'm a huge fan of Da Ali G show so I would say I have a bias. It's definitely worth a watch if you liked Borat.

Sales actually declined the second day it was out lol. I told ya so, jk.

I loved the Dark Knight too, but i dont think the 3rd will be anywhere near the sales because of Heath. It will probably be amazing too but it wont sell as well.

#1 at the box office and made over 30 million. Good sales, not great but still good. Ya Heath's death definitely affected the sales positively. The third one wont do as well like you said but hopefully it's as good as the second. I didn't enjoy the first at all.

I just saw it, it was alright, I felt it wasnt as good as Borat and much of the humor relied on brute force dick on the cinema screen laughs instead of comedic timing and writing
