Is that movie actually worth watching? I tried Mondo Cane and stopped after the first 10 minutes because of how excruciatingly boring and annoying it was.

pretty cool spanish thriller. it had a non-scifi cube-like feeling for a while (except here everything is explained). technically average at best, but the story is neat (although the "enigmas" were waaaaay too easy (and quite well known) to be posed to supposed high-level mathematicians) and the "answer" is obvious midway through if you pay attention and know a bit of math history (or check wikipedia ;)). 5.5-6/10

It's starts out slow but does give some basic information about the end of Africa's colonization. The fact that their objective was to develop a complete piece instead of vignettes like Mondo Cane definitely helps and the violence they recorded, specifically the elephant scene is remarkable. For me it's my favorite shockumentary and I would say that it could even be considered a documentary with good cinematography and J&P deserve credit for risking their safety to record murder, genocide, and poaching.

Doesn't it have an awful racist pro-colonial slant, though?

It may depend on the release, whether it's the Blood & Guts version, the Italian version or the English version but the one I watch portrays the Euros as racist assholes that abandoned an impoverished continent to fight amongst itself in lawlessness. It also offered a contrast between the white businessmen who flew in from South Africa on a chopper to poach elephants for a photo op and the natives that raided the game reserves for food. I'm more interested in the visceral images which can be utilized in conjunction with history books to develop a well rounded observation of that point in time.

Enjoyable, but would have been better if it focused more on the abduction and "slave" character. The acting by the reporters and policemen was pretty poor also.

movie delivered the lulz, big time.

i don't know where they get the inspiration, but those guys keep coming up with some outrageous and shocking stuff. i really like how johnny knoxville seems so genuinely excited and content with everything that's going on.

still, i don't think i laughed as hard as i did at the first two, partly because i'm quite a bit older than when i saw the first two, and partly because all the stunts seem a lot less spontaneous than before. i still think the best moments are when people randomly get punched in the dick or "tysoned" when they're standing around on set.

opening night was a terrible idea though. every drunk 17-year old and bro from the greater Tempe area was in that theater tonight, and they were obnoxious as fuck.

nice idea but the low budget really hurt it. with better actors, a really good writer and a decent director this could've been really good. 5 (maybe 6 if i was feeling generous)/10


the first half was kinda entertaining but then it turns into your typical hollywoodian tale. 3/10


eh. it was ok for the first half. but the characters are dumb fucks (and i cannot believe those chairs are that badly constructed). 4/10

yeah. it's in 3-D and it's awesome/disgusting/hilarious. two people in the row behind us puked.

weird they haven't been pushing it down there at all, it's been getting pushed relentlessly up here for the last month or so.

Had no expectations, and it turned out to be decent except the cliched + predictable end.

If you don't watch the new Jackass in 3D you're missing out on more than half the fun. Holy shit.

Jackass was my first 3D movie, and the glasses seriously annoyed the shit out of me. Call me old fashioned, but I think all this 3D shit is stupid.
