02:44
basically of Superman but what if

03:03
birthday 29 another time and I can't
03:06

03:08

03:11
bright burn first off I can't breathe in
03:15
this thing I'm so hot but yeah uh we get
03:23
we get free really quick it is
03:25
summertime
03:26
man about to die but bright brother oh
03:28
man we can do this is not spoiler airy
03:32
cuz I kidding this movie was that's
03:34
great yeah not not bullet birth not
03:37
spoiler r49 spoilers I think they
03:42
definitely hit the ball out the part
03:44
with giving you well with this type of
03:47
film would happen that I kind of look
03:49
like a what if villain know Superman was
03:51
evil um so you definitely get a new
03:54
respect out of Superman if you didn't
03:57
like Superman before you may fear him
03:59
now because this movie will give I'm too
04:01
great a little boy please Bradley does
04:04
his verses tell off he is so creepy I
04:07
was like oh gosh in the movie he hid his
04:10
facial expression
04:11
I mean a lot of times he didn't even say
04:13
a word but you felt how intense he was
04:15
when he looked at you I'm like that's a
04:18
scary little bullet so already just kind
04:22
of freaked me out but the movie the
04:25
story to me I thought worked really well
04:27
we really put you in pretty hard
04:29
positions as parents thinking as parents
04:32
what would you do if you know somebody
04:34
that you love end up being a monster
04:36
could you would you be able to put that
04:39
monster down would you be able to you
04:40
know you know turn your back on that
04:43
particular person so it brought us on I
04:45
brought a lot of you know real-life
04:47
experience how people deal with
04:49
situations even people know changing and
04:53
maybe going down a bad path and kind of
04:56
how you have to make those decisions as
05:01
a parent yeah yeah yeah it's a pretty
05:08
yeah you're right but I thought the
05:11
graphics or they worked really well it
05:14
was nothing that looked easy on it
05:16
he definitely you know they definitely
05:20
the devil was a rated R movie you're
05:23
gonna see a lot of gore and a lot of
05:24
cringing a lot of cringing happen at
05:27
this theater when we watch this movie so
05:29
there are some course like oh my god I
05:33
remember that a few times watching this
05:37
movie but I really enjoyed myself it did
05:41
have a lot of scary points I felt myself
05:42
jumping definitely go see it at a
05:44
theater you know it's not gonna be safe
05:46
you watch it if you watch your home no
05:48
but know why people watch horror movies
05:50
at home but definitely go out there to
05:52
the theater get you some popcorn and
05:55
enjoy the movie it starts off great
05:57
that's too slow pacing is great on it so
06:00
I enjoyed it what about you oh man you
06:04
know you know I'm not really into horror
06:06
movies really that much because horror
06:08
movies don't scare me like I watch them
06:10
that's just like okay that happened why
06:13
are you doing stupid stuff oh you went
06:15
into that room why did you go into that
06:17
room this movie was none of that this
06:22
movie was amazing like everyone
06:24
pretty much made good decisions I mean
06:26
there was some questionable parenting
06:27
from time to time some of the decisions
06:29
that they made Tarek's well okay maybe I
06:31
would I probably would talk to him about
06:33
this
06:33
let it go but man this movie was amazing
06:39
we weren't saying it was uh myself and
06:42
Charlie his wife Dee and we were yelling
06:45
multiple times yes so many times during
06:54
this movie movie is like a roller
06:59
coaster man it is so much fun and we
07:02
could not stop talking about it after
07:05
the movie was over as a matter of fact
07:06
we loved the movie so much we talked
07:08
about it so much that uh after that we
07:10
met another one of my friends and his
07:12
young daughter and say Oh house that
07:15
night to continue to celebrate my
07:16
birthday and we were scared a little
07:19
girl exactly you like and she left we
07:30
just Caitlyn remember that we love you
07:32
okay yeah
07:39
yes so go see this movie this this was
07:42
probably the best weekend of movies I've
07:45
ever experienced with having a landing
07:47
on Friday and bright burn on Saturday
07:49
it's great it was great man I really
07:52
loved it so go see this movie um I don't
07:55
know if we don't it'll probably scare a
07:56
lot of people if you don't scare easily
07:58
like me I think you enjoy just because
08:00
you'll be thrilled
08:01
okay so that was our non-spoiler review
08:04
of bright burn so now let's get into the
08:07
nitty gritty and we're gonna talk about
08:09
this movie hey Chuck I did not know what
08:21
to expect I never been a Superman fan
08:25
because he was just like he seems like
08:27
he's too powerful so kind of seeing it
08:30
from a kid and I I guess it reminded me
08:33
of like okay what would happen if like
08:35
Goku
08:36
like even hit his head this is kind of
08:38
what happened just kill everybody and
08:40
and say with the Superman it wasn't
08:43
raised by good parents it would hardly
08:45
evil like this child and his parents
08:47
were not good
08:48
but I guess this is kind of get back
08:50
into the movie seeing I thought all the
08:55
characters did a great job it was no
08:57
weak characters in the movie even the
08:59
side characters everybody so very good
09:02
emotion the family the family I would
09:07
say really made a lot of tough decisions
09:10
because I like looking at it you're like
09:12
okay well if my kid was evil I'll just
09:14
go ahead and kill him all right no you
09:16
wouldn't kill your kid you love your kid
09:18
you nurtured your child forever and it
09:21
makes them tough decision like right it
09:23
gets right into it like you see him he's
09:25
a good kid like right lead to it turns
09:27
11 on it was 11 how do you how these are
09:30
13 somewhere yeah birthday right that
09:35
birthday you start seeing him turn like
09:37
you know uncle gives him a present and
09:39
that's a gun and the dads like no no
09:41
guys no guys it's a good week I did a
09:43
little you know a little reenactment
09:45
earlier that earlier and the boys like
09:47
no it's mine
09:48
oh okay and then he's just like and he's
09:52
making a scene at the restaurant dad no
09:54
but we're leaving now
09:55
and like from that point on it's like
09:57
he's our understanding somebody I'm
09:59
different I'm different person I can do
10:01
stuff fix his hand into the freaking a
10:04
lot more he couldn't get it open eat
10:09
those a lot more not he's like I'm just
10:12
sticking my hand in there I'm like nah I
10:14
told her shot does that be funny
10:16
hilarious
10:22
[Laughter]
10:30
so I just like how I like how he plays
10:34
character so good like he was so creepy
10:36
he was just a creepy guy he was so smart
10:39
he was and he was so good at one part of
10:42
the movie and then he just turned creepy
10:44
and just like kind of sinister even when
10:46
he went to go his dad had told him it
10:48
was a quick little party dad told him
10:50
you know whenever time talking about
10:51
first bees talking about you know
10:53
sometimes you know if you like girl
10:54
let's let that out let them know that
10:56
type of thing it was like so I can do
10:58
that right now it was like no not right
10:59
now and then I didn't X night he just
11:01
flies up to the girls room it was like
11:03
in her room another night and opening up
11:06
her computers or some song I'm like okay
11:08
that's creepy fail yeah oh girl I felt
11:13
so bad for her home movies just hand
11:14
smashed up oh dude like he just does not
11:17
take rejection well with her and poor
11:20
mama gosh t yeah that was wrong that's
11:24
the wrong kid to yell at for that mama
11:26
yeah cuz she did not make it she Steven
11:29
make some really cringey parts
11:30
especially with that glass that glass
11:32
thing I mean that glass thing was our
11:34
longest cringing moment yes girls her
11:38
eye and she like took forever to pull
11:40
that was wall just like and they just
11:44
can't be on it I felt like that's almost
11:47
a little bit aspect it was long enough
11:51
for you like - it was long enough for
11:53
like you to look away it was it was good
12:07
man I mean they like seeing what
12:10
Superman could do to a person with his
12:13
powers like when he's like just blasting
12:15
his head people's heads open and you
12:18
know really just ripping people apart
12:20
was crazy I think I think laughing I'm
12:23
gonna talk about was the last one of my
12:25
favorite scenes was with uncle uncle's
12:31
drunk and he comes he's like telling the
12:34
boy kind of scares him because he's in
12:36
the house
12:36
cuz first of all the boy doesn't want
12:38
his parents to know he's evil
12:40
so he's in the house of the I about to
12:42
kill her but the but the but the dad but
12:45
uncle comes home so he comes in and he's
12:48
like you scared me I'm saying you home
12:50
right now he takes him home he's like
12:52
are you gonna tell my parents she's like
12:53
of course i'ma tell your parents and
12:55
then old boy like puts that man's on
12:57
throws him and he just like tastes are
12:59
running but the I guess the craziest
13:01
thing was like
13:02
he made the car crash oh dude is like
13:06
he's like trying to get the car to start
13:08
and the lights pop on and the little
13:10
boys with it yeah he has masculine over
13:14
there he's like oh oh no oh no not today
13:19
I was like he would strike black moment
13:21
right there oh yeah scene and doop it
13:25
comes on it picks him up Jocelyn and you
13:27
think that do you think he's alive well
13:29
I think he might live but then you see
13:32
is the whole jaw just fall out of his
13:34
mouth I'm like oh my gosh this movie but
13:44
I ain't never go see another one they
13:47
look like they were gonna do like
13:47
sometimes my heart universe with these
13:49
superheroes so the James Gunn family the
13:52
gun family is doing their thing and I
13:55
can't wait to watch the next one this
13:57
was a great movie to me very thoroughly
13:59
oh yes
14:02
I'll pick back on that as well yes this
14:05
movie this is definitely the oh yeah oh
14:08
did you type that Chuck it's not Otis is
14:11
it Danny the uncle Street abandoned his
14:13
wife yeah I can't read after he get
14:25
thrown across the garage he didn't even
14:26
ask any questions he can do people leave
14:28
me like what what just happened like he
14:30
didn't know he just get up get my car
14:32
and drove off with his wife in the bed
14:36
yes that's hilarious
14:38
oh man oh this might be this no this no
14:40
might be about it this is des in my
14:42
favorite car movie of all time right
14:45
this movie it's great is so many thrills
14:49
in this movie in it I love how this
14:51
movie didn't take any time to go down
14:53
the path of the of the little boy
14:55
becoming a bad guy like here's a couple
14:58
minutes and then BOOM he's a bad guy for
15:01
the rest of the movie you know and
15:03
there's so many great scenes I hate to
15:05
give them away
15:06
no but I bought you so this is the
15:09
spoiler review again spoiler review the
15:12
hands mashing scene
15:14
that was great he did just eating this
15:16
mash that girls and he smashed it the
15:19
glass and the icing oh god it's horrible
15:21
it was so long like the whole scene is
15:24
like a whole minute longer longer gosh
15:26
and then I like the fact that uh they
15:29
actually had something happening with
15:31
glass like we just watched John wick and
15:34
he's going to like 15 things a glass and
15:36
I'm like yeah like class is bad like
15:39
yeah but if you if you answer place and
15:43
you have a drink of made of glass and
15:45
you drop it that's a really bad thing
15:47
that's a problem but other movies and
15:50
graphs like it's no problem you know
15:52
like no no for us a problem and we see
15:55
how much you smashing seeing right Chuck
15:59
mention that probably the funny scene in
16:01
the whole movie like Chuck said oh no oh
16:04
no today no he get tears a and get out
16:13
black nope yeah oh my god
16:21
sizzling the date the - brain like I
16:24
tried to represent earlier Oh sneak
16:27
attacking the sheriff dropping the mom
16:30
from this two old guys there for was to
16:34
me that was like come on sheriff like
16:36
he's a we got him we got like how do you
16:38
got him
16:40
like team I don't think you share a song
16:45
with him then but I'm saying like you
16:47
saw he did to that to that freakin hand
16:50
of the girl into the to the to the car
16:53
to the truck like you gotta just me like
16:56
later trap out for him yeah I've been
17:00
reason to believe that he was Tardos
17:15
this is so bad and there's one scene
17:21
where he's like straight to store in the
17:23
house and while he's doing that they
17:25
keep flashing to pick
17:28
that they have in the house of him and
17:30
his parents honestly
17:31
gosh that directing that is so great
17:34
cause it's such a contrast between where
17:36
he came from and where he is now
17:38
it's an amazing movie um I don't really
17:41
know if I have any dislikes about I mean
17:44
I knew I couldn't live on a farm miles
17:46
away from other people particularly
17:49
fiery some noises outside but I want to
17:51
live in a neighborhood where I hear
17:53
noises outside I know it's people okay
17:55
I'm about to get robbed okay I know
17:57
what's happened I understand that but
17:59
being out in the middle of woods I don't
18:02
like getting robbed it is it is it bears
18:05
I don't know what this is
18:06
you know um there wasn't a whole lot of
18:08
dumb decisions in this movie the only
18:10
only dumb decisions where the parents
18:12
are not talking to each other that was I
18:14
was not community like him
18:17
you know can they start off like she
18:19
starts off the movie early not
18:20
communicate he he looked like I dunno he
18:29
I got him out of a spaceship in the
18:31
woods like she was just to me right it's
18:47
a demon husband-and-wife teams or
18:53
whatever team the jams communicate with
18:57
each other because if they had done that
18:58
they probably would have still been
19:00
killed but at least it was one thing
19:05
there was one time they would have been
19:07
killed
19:07
but yeah the mom she doesn't tell him
19:09
that he's looking for thing you know but
19:11
the minute the dad doesn't tell the mom
19:13
about him - and the for the UM the mom
19:16
doesn't tell the dad about him telling
19:19
that the boy could fly but the number
19:21
one problem number one time decision
19:23
communicate with each other she does not
19:26
tell the dad that the ship can play yeah
19:32
to me that was the if she were to tell
19:35
him that they would want because they
19:38
had him in words he was ever
19:41
get a shot off this is a spoiler review
19:42
so make sure y'all do know that tell you
19:45
the whole movie so when the dad takes
19:47
him to a hut
19:48
I'm like if he had made a bullet out of
19:50
that metal or just got like a pellet gun
19:52
or something broke some pieces off put
19:54
it in his good
19:55
what problem song boy will hit going off
19:58
make you some cover up and he's out the
20:01
wait you know nobody has to die let
20:03
nobody else answer that so you know but
20:07
not doom not communicating that you know
