    "People, I can't tell you what to do. I don't want to tell you how to spend your money. I don't want to tell you how-what to do with your life. But, YOU'RE BEING HORN SWAGGLED (POUNDS DESK) YOU'RE BEING BAMBOOZLED (POUNDS DESK), YOU'RE BEING TRICKED(POUNDS DESK) into going to see something that you've seen before and you're BEING (POUNDS DESK) RIPPED (POUNDS DESK) OFF (POUNDS DESK). NOW LISTEN TO ME, if i can stop just one of you from going to see this movie, then I will feel like I have done my job, but if I can't do that then I will tell you like I will tell this movie: F$#@K YOU!! F#$%K YOU!! F#$%K YOU!!!!!!!"

    Good Bum review.

    But New Blip Player is annoying as Hell! Here you've got two videos and it loads automaticly another on the upper window while I try to play and listen to the lower one.

    Oh, and it's somehow slow as granny. My (I admit, quite old) computer can't render HD on full screen while it isn't a problem with older player.

    DAMN! Why did they do this?
  • Bloodrealm
    Refresh the page after you're done the first video, that's what I do.

    That's a workaround, not solving the problem...
  • xxMATEOSxx
    I couldn't stop recording everything that happened in my life once!

    Although I never saw ghosts...wierd.
  • CJ-1  - Shave
    Did Doug shave again?
  • JSpiwak
    I was just thinking that I haven't seen a bum review in a while. Nice!

    Is it me or does it look like Doug just shaved the right (our left) side of his mustache?

    Paranorman got pretty damn intense toward the end. Also it was an awesome movie, whereas this is a lame movie. =D

    I don't know why your talking about this movie Chester. It doesn't have any change.
  • ImInsanityIncarnate  - Grave Encounters
    Watch these 2 movies - Grave Encounters and Grave Encounters 2
    Better found footage movies than these movies
  • Faith4ever  - A BUM REVIEW YESSSSS!

    I don't like the Paranormal Activity films. Not scary at all. Movies are not real! The Walking Dead is more realistic and scary!

    Remembering The Amityville Horror (1979) is more scary.

    It's 11:30 PM. You're home alone, because you live alone, and you're gonna be home alone for the next few months. And then, you hear footsteps in the hallway. No one's there. You hear a thump in the attic. Once again, no one's there. It could be the house settling. It could be a rat knocking something over. It could be anything, but you'll never know what. And it happens constantly and consistently. Disembodied footsteps, repeated thumps and noises, all with merely tentative explanations.

    That is the atmosphere movies like Paranormal Activity (the first two, anyway; the third was content to be more intense but as subtle as Wagner) strive for. And, to me, it's the best kind of horror film--the kind that utilizes subtlety rather than mindless gore or stupid-looking zombies or aliens, the kind that crawls under your skin and haunts you long after you see it.

    And then there's PA4, which is just shamefully bad. Completely bland, dull, and lacking any of the sensibilities of the first three. No more atmospheric build-up, no more reasonably-realistic presentation.

    Instead, we get generic horror movie direction, multitudes of jump-scares, and reprehensibly stupid characters. "Oh God, my dad is being slammed around by an evil entity and is dying right in front of me! I'D BETTER HOLD ONTO MY CAMERA AND CATCH IT ALL ON FILM!!"

    When I saw this in the theater and the cat first jumped out, I yelled "Cat! Cat!! Cat!!!". haha.
  • SRanger1071  - FINALLY!!!
    I thought the Bum got sucked into the same Plot Hole as the Critic! Or got eaten by Snakeweed when he cameo'd in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Or Spiderbites.

    Doug has like 52% of a mustache in that bottom vid. I am confused.

    You know, I am very curious to hear your thoughts on Sinister :P. A much better horror-flick then PA4 in my opinion.

    Did you say "Activi Ma-Ti?"

    "HEEAARRT!!" *PUNCH!*
  • thorondragon

    Random casual misogyny isn't cool.
    This isn't usually a problem so I thought I'd point it out in case you don't realise "Haha women have periods and are emotional" is how that PMS brigade joke came across.
  • Semudara
    avatar
    Uh... I hate sexism as much as the next person, but "misogyny"? Really? That seemed like a pretty harmless, lighthearted joke to me. It wasn't even sexist, let alone misogynistic. :|
  • someone0  - Come on!

    After Spoony's vlog I was bracing myself for a screamer. Thanks for taking the high road on that one.

    YES. CRITIC IS KEEPING THE BUM CHARACTER!!!



    OH HOOOOORRRAAAAY!
  • Monkeywithabanana
    Oh man, I totally Disagree ---

    On The Series:

    1 - Creative movie and probably the best out of the series.
    2 - Interesting new direction, not nearly as original as the first but still worth watching.
    3 - Just as good as 2 if not a bit better.

    ...4...wow... just wow, really HATED this one. Characters dumb, no reason that it is found footage, laptops cannot record for 2 weeks straight, illogical (girl turning laptop towards demon, using Camera while people are dying)and way too much product placement; I'm looking at you Apple and Xbox.

    I say don't waste your money, especially when Sinister is still in theaters. (While certainly not perfect it is much more "scary" than Paranormal Activity 4)

    Easily the worst of the bunch

    Is that a bong and some weed in the back ground ?

    Boy am I glad you're not quitting the Bum reviews! I SO look forward to your reviews of the Hobbit movies!
  • Semudara
    avatar
    Ooh, yes! I really hope he's going to do all of those. =D
  • josh111888  - Was that done on purpose?
    When the bum started talking about the PMS brigade, the Nostalgia Chick popped up on the bottom of the screen. Coincidence?
