Was Jim’s Enlightenment Just Media Bait for New Netflix Over-The-Top Documentary?

So, was it all fake? Did Jim Carrey go on an attention seeking mediatic rampage to set the stage for new Netflix documentary about his over-the-top involvement in the making of the film about an over-the-top comedian? Try saying that 10 times fast.  “Man on the Moon” remember? This is the movie where Jim stars in the biopic about the 70’s comedic icon Andy Kaufman. The guy was so eerie you just could not stop staring, and in the 90’s, Jim played the part to the point of international praise.  Was Jim really getting all “high on the existential nihilism of modern quantum physics” or is this mediatic genius setting the stage for his brand new Netflix biopic about his great role in the Kaufman biopic? Just look at some of Jim’s more WTF moments:

So, well, Netflix is Hollywoodizing the making of the man on the moon, so this is what Netflix says about Jim:

Now, thanks to Jim’s re-entry into the attention of mass media, it’s really tempting to look at the original footage, and if you do, then I’m sure you be driven to watch the original Andy Kaufman recordings as well, although I’d recommend you skip down to the last video first ( Pure 100% Kaufman Mind Farts).

So here is some real Bizarro a;’la Kaufman:

 

How did “The Room”, the worst movie ever, inspire the best movie of 2017?

So there once was a movie that was sooo “so bad that it was good”, that it turned out to be the greatest worst movie ever made and thus, a cultural iconic cult film with an expanding following. Anyways, how’s your sex life? As I was telling you, the cult fandom grew so fast, it got noticed by Seth and the Franco boys and they turned the story into a Moviementary project. Now it looks like the documentary about the greatest worst movie ever made is setting itself up for prime Oscar recognition, as the top movie critiques are gifting amazing reviews about it!

This bizarre ode to badness is so peculiar and works so well I almost want to believe that the Franco Bros and Rogan created the character “Tommy Wiseau” in order to create the movie and then create the movie of the movie! Too much? it’s hard to escape the temptation of speculation on some conspiracy theory. But you be the judge. Let’s start with the trailer…  

Now to get a taste of the movie here are some of scenes that are so bad, they are good.

And now for some high contrasting reviews, (about the how good the movie about the making of “The Room” is:

The Disaster Artist is primarily a pedestal for the ultimate James Franco performance — it’s his Lincoln. – Vulture.

..not funny yet? ok, then watch this:

…so this makes the amazing reviews of the documentary even funnier, just check out what Vulture had to say: Just as Johnny Depp gave his career-best performance as Z-movie auteur Ed Wood, Franco achieves what could become his most iconic role. -Peter Debruge, Variety 

Sincere and sporadically funny, The Disaster Artist is an endearing tribute to failing in Hollywood. Anyway, how is your sex life? – John Nugent.

More reviews: Empire – James Franco’s The Disaster Artist is funny and somewhat depressing, one of those haha movies that make you wonder if its laughs are really on us. –

Let’s hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, this is Franco talking at GOOGLE of all places, about his masterpiece.

San Diego Reader: Wiseau also makes a pretty good avatar for Franco himself: a mercurial, relentless performer whose ambition encompasses a thrilling willingness to crash and burn. And it’s that identification that makes the comedy work here: Franco kids because he loves.

Can we expect more from Wiseau? ( Yes.):

So, I’m watching this. How about you? Ok guys, I’ve got to go now.

Adam Sandler and His Hidden Connections

Adam Sandler, an orginal New Yorker, was born on September 9, 1966. As a kid, he was always making jokes and making people laugh and was so good at that, that it turned him into a professional comedian. *(Check out some of his early work on the video bellow). It all started when his brother encouraged him to go and perform at the Boston Comedy Club at age 17. He continued to perform in Boston until he left for New York University. After graduating he kept as a regular on MTV´s game show Remote Control.

In 1990 Adam Sandler was employed on Saturday Night Live by Dennis Miller, a great starting and pivoting point for his carrier that launched him to fame over the next 5 years. Shortly after, Adam makes some of his characters such as Cajun Man, Opera Man and Canteen Boy. Source: https://www.biography.com/people/adam-sandler-9542505.

During the 1990´s he made several comedy albums named: ´They´re all gonna laugh at you´ (1993), “What the Hell Happened to me?” (1996). “What´s you name?” (1997), and “Stan and Judy´s Kid” (1999). Two of these were awarded a double platinum.

Sandler started coming up in TV shows since 1980 but it was until 1990 that he starts to receive recognition on for movies. He appeared in Coneheads with Chris Farley and Dave Spade. He founded his own company´Happy Madison Productions´in 1999, during the years he filmed many movies under the banner. https://www.thefamouspeople.com/profiles/adam-sandler-582.php

As a young stand-up comedian, Adam Sandler probably didn’t foresee himself becoming one of the most successful funnymen in Hollywood, complete with a sweet Netflix deal, but he did. While his movies are often beaten up on by critics, the actor has starred in some pretty classic comedies, like Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, and The Wedding Singer. However, if you look long enough at the man’s movies, you’ll spot numerous in-jokes and all sorts of references scattered throughout his filmography…

Have You Asked Yourself Why Caliban From Logan Seems So Familiar?

When Caliban first steps onto the screen in Logan, it’s impossible to tell who’s under that killer costume. But after he took off his bandana and goggles, a little bell of recognition probably went off in your head — there’s something familiar about the photosensitive mutant tracker. Caliban is played by a British writer, comedian, and actor Stephen Merchant. But he’s had quite a career long before he landed the choice role of Charles Xavier’s caretaker. So where on Earth have we seen this guy before?

Has anyone known lately about Dana Carvey?

Do you what Dana Carvey is doing lately? One of the best comedian in the 80’s and 90’s is now preferring stand-up comedy to acting but beyond that, his career remains quiet.

Throughout the ’80s and ’90s, Dana Carvey was a towering presence in comedy, and he was the unequaled star of Saturday Night Live during his 1986 to 1993 tenure. From the Church Lady to Garth to his unhinged impressions of politicians like George H.W. Bush, Carvey was king. That’s great — but what has he been up to recently?”.

Jim Carrey´s interesting human mask.

Like all great comedians, Jim bears of some of the most important and difficult feelings humans can process. He is an expert fighter, seasoned in the depths of human consciousness, confronted by the daemons and ghosts of the limits of perceived reality. These ideas and concepts lurk in the dark abyss of our own self contemplation and test the curious mind. Jim is wrestling with some of the really big ones and the wildness of these internal battles became obvious in 2015. Like Robin Williams, Roberto Benigni and quite a few others, the clowns mask is like the mother´s smile. Hiding desperation to protect the innocence of their children. This is where love and courage and the divine power of hope is born. We call it Faith. 

Comedians are are sheep dogs, defending sheep from the wolves of mental prison. The best have always fought the obstacles of life with blessed humor and their roots stem from the natural and noble impulse to defend friends and family from the more common human problems found in the modern family. Divorce, depression, stress, debt, addictions, violence. The brave child that entertains the family and turns their attention towards laughter is responding to an ancient wisdom that surpasses the words and definitions our language has reduced our consciousness too. And thus my own words are not enough to even finish this idea, except with the hope that by looking at the following videos, you will see through your own abstraction and selective attention the caricatures that illustrate the wisdom behind the mask that is Jim, sometimes unbeknownst to him. 

James Eugene Carrey (born January 17, 1962)[1] is a Canadian-American actor, comedian, impressionist, screenwriter, musician, producer, artist, painter and cartoonist. He is known for his energetic slapstickperformances.[2]

Carrey first gained recognition in America in 1990 after landing a recurring role in the sketch comedy television series In Living Color. His first leading roles in motion pictures came with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), Dumb and Dumber (1994), The Mask (1994), and Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995), as well portraying the Riddlerin Batman Forever (1995) and a lead role in Liar Liar (1997). He gained attention starring in serious roles in The Truman Show (1998) and Man on the Moon (1999), with each garnering him a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor.

In the 2000s, he gained further notice for his portrayal of the Grinch in How the Grinch Stole Christmas and for the comedy Me, Myself & Irene (both in 2000), as well as Bruce Almighty (2003), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004) for which he was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading RoleLemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events (2004), Fun with Dick and Jane (2005), Yes Man (2008), Horton Hears a Who!(2008) and A Christmas Carol (2009).

In the 2010s, he starred in Mr. Popper’s Penguins (2011), The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013), Kick-Ass 2(2013), and reprised his role as Lloyd Christmas in Dumb and Dumber To (2014). Since 2018, he has portrayed Jeff Piccirillo in the Showtime series Kidding.

12 Actors Who Treat Fellow Cast Members Like Trash

“We all like to imagine that our favorite actors and actresses are great people in real life. Sure, they might play a jerk onscreen once in awhile, but that’s just acting, right? It’s what they do. Well, with great fame comes great entitlement, and some of Hollywood’s finest are just plain nasty at times. Each of these actors have earned a bad rep for the way they behave between takes, be it talking down to craft services, warring with co-stars, or fighting with directors. Maybe they were all just having a bad day…over and over again. Here are a few of the big-name actors people hate working with…”

How Carrie Fisher’s Passing Will Affect The Future Of Star Wars

“Carrie Fisher was a whole lot more than just Princess Leia. She was a fierce advocate for social causes, an important voice for destigmatizing mental illness, a bang-up script doctor on many of your favorite 1990s movies, and an incredible author. It’s not often that one person can be so talented in so many fields, but Fisher was the exception. She lived more in her six decades than most of us ever will in a lifetime, and we’ll never know what more she had in store for us. But as incredible as she was in all these different ways, she’s still best known for one thing above all: her role as Leia in Star Wars. Her tragic passing due to a heart attack will almost certainly affect the future of Star Wars. As sad as we fans are, it’s impossible not to ask the question that’s on all our minds: what effect might our loss of Carrie Fisher have on Episode VIII and Episode IX?”
