Commentary Crew preference - How They React To You Roasting Them.
A/N- okay im uploading this before the Chubbs x reader imagine because i don’t know his irl name and no one wants to tell me. Master list coming at 7 probably, I left Jameskii out of this one lmao.
•"You look like cubert Farnsworth"
•"Why doesn’t you face work properly?“
•"Your hair looks like Hiroshima"
•Niall would initially get annoyed, but then would start to see it as a meme.
•He’d use these roasts in his video to avoid anyone else criticizing him.
•Usually, he wouldn’t let anyone roast him without hitting them with a roast that destroys their will to live but hes quite fond of you.
•Niall suggests ways for you to win back The Big Pyrocynical’s heart ;)
•"Stop talking I cant even understand you.“
•"That’s not even funny.”
•This isn’t the first time and certainly won’t be the last time you roast him on a video game.
•That Russian temper always gets the better of him, he WILL 100% roast you back.
•Which results in you crying because hes v mean
•You go through this cycle of roasting, crying and not speaking at least once every two weeks.
•It makes group skype calls super awkward.
•The two of you always make up, its always going to be you and Roman.
•"Where’s your chin?“
•"Are you fucking serious?”
•"You talk like a year 7 (they’d be 11) with Turrets"
•"My mom doesn’t like you, y/n.“
•You and Calvin would have regular roast sessions over skype.
•He’d let you win, he thinks its cute when you get all celebratory and happy.
•Calvin does not appreciate you roasting his chin, he has told you this multiple times.
•You obviously never listen to him.
•Its alright though, its all in good fun.
•"Dolan Dark worst channel”
•"Shut the fuck up"
•"Your laugh sounds like a kettle.“
•"That’s… That’s the point of the kettle icon y/n”
•"Oh" Is how you reply everytime he shuts down one of your roasts.
•Martyn enjoys you trying to roast him, he thinks its cute and makes for good content on twitter
•He never leaves you disappointed though, he’ll bully you and then tackle you with cuddles.
•"Kettle boy loves you.“
•"Chubbs mate your fat.”
•"I fucking know y/n, what are you twelve?“
•"You leech off big youtubers for money and views”
•"Its like you watched one of my videos.“
•You say this stuff to him as a joke, you know it annoys him no end.
•Hes almost tempted to roast you back.
•The pair of you have a weird relationship, you aren’t really that soppy and romantic, you mostly just roast each other.
•"Your dick is small Will.”
•"Its not y/n trust me on that.“
•"Why are your eyebrows like sticks?”
•"Alright im leaving.“
•Will gets constantly bullied by you, he often threatens to leave, sometimes(right now he goes through with it.)
•He’ll probably be back tomorrow.
A/N okay its kind of shitty and forced but fr I need someone to tell me chubbs’ name ?? Requests are still open plz request I have little going on in life.
01. The Neon Demon - A profoundly stupid commentary on female friendship as “demonic” and “ruthless,” perpetuating the tired narrative that women are “othered” and “unknowable.” Comes to the offensive, simplistic conclusion that women cannot excel in their careers without “losing themselves” in the process. Confuses vague symbolism with depth. A better recommendation: compare the wholesome depiction of female companionship in the effortless, uplifting ending of Paul Verhoeven’s Elle.
02. Captain Fantastic - A film intensely uncritical of its protagonist’s inherent privilege and manipulation of his children. Smug and condescending, where the family “cut off” from everyday civilization to go live in the woods without modern comforts looks down upon everyone else as a joke, as though they (and they alone) have found the “true meaning” of life. No acknowledgement that their ability to up and leave to go live in the woods is a privileged ability because they have the safety nets of family/friends to return to, which is a far reality from the many underprivileged poor who view this kind of backwoods lifestyle as a burden rather than an escape. The father is also an authoritative figure rather than a hippie, free-thinking one, where his kids are completely cut off from the diversity of perspectives and opinions outside their sheltered bubble, despite their claims otherwise. This is a film paranoid about popular culture and condescending towards “everyday” people. Tries to make cute and quaint what is essentially a “Jesus Camp”-esque group. A better recommendation: Wendy and Lucy, Hunt for the Wilderpeople.
03. Suicide Squad - A ridiculous, grimly serious storyline. Jared Leto commits way too hard on an unimportant character who’s nothing more than the kind of greasy, unlikeable gangster types that David Ayer has depicted throughout his career (with little variation or nuance). Viola Davis in comparison never smugly made claims to “serious” method acting yet elevated whatever scene she was in with effortless acting chops. Still, nothing saves the movie. Not the assault of popular music in every single scene as a futile attempt to emulate Guardians of the Galaxy (they used cliched, recognizable music too. See: “Fortunate Son” with a shot of helicopters. Compare to the richer song selection in Guardians with tracks by Raspberries, 10cc, Redbone, and Marvin Gaye). Not the “wacky” comedy that often defers to weird, racist stereotyping (Killer Croc requesting “BET,” Diablo as a tattooed Mexican gangster like an extra from End of Watch). Bizarre plotting with a boring villain. A better recommendation: The action is better in the Captain America movies, and it’s good humored too.
04. Hell or High Water - Taylor Sheridan is a shit writer who has been riding on the pretense of antiheroes with “moral ambiguity” even though his conflicts of good and evil are pretty cut and dry (are they really antiheroes, then?). Lazily uses people of color as merely suffering/dying props to motivate his heroic white narratives (see also: his terrible screenplay for Sicario, which gives a safe and reductive and misleading picture of narco trafficking as a “thriller” where dead bodies are a source of spectacle rather than a real human tragedy). A better recommendation: the more honestly exploitative/campy Nocturnal Animals, Killer Joe, and Cold in July. The towering Blood Simple.
05. Hacksaw Ridge - The hack Mel Gibson continues pushing religious conservatism disguised as thrilling action, where complex themes such as Catholic redemptive suffering and guilt are rendered onscreen as pointlessly bloody violence bordering on “torture porn” like Hostel or Saw or (lmao) The Passion of the Christ. Compare to Martin Scorsese’s Silence, which uses violence sparingly but far more effectively: where Catholic suffering is a theme that raises more questions than answers and leaves the faith shook by the end of it. A better recommendation: You want a war movie that better (and poetically) reflects Christian theology and suffering? The Thin Red Line. Also, the aforementioned Silence (both the Scorsese and Shinoda adaptations).
07. Green Room - Confuses violence and gore for tension. Flimsy villain with no nuanced backstory/motivations other than “neo-Nazi.” Compare to 10 Cloverfield Lane’s antagonist, and how it draws tension through playful dialogue and maximal use of space (every single room utilized, even the spaces in the walls) instead of graphic violence. A step down from the superior Blue Ruin. A better recommendation: 10 Cloverfield Lane, Blue Ruin, (hell, even Don’t Breathe made better use of space and camerawork).
08. Assassin’s Creed - Only reveals to us that most videogame stories are incomprehensible trash with convoluted mythologies and poorly written characters. The problem isn’t that the interactivity of videogames can’t be translated to a passive medium, but that videogame stories are just bad to begin with. A better recommendation: Go play a good videogame story like Silent Hill 2, or Kentucky Route Zero, or The Last Guardian.
09. Swiss Army Man - So-called “serious” storytelling (read: we used a metaphor) undercut by juvenile humor and sappy sentimentalism. Didn’t find the right balance in tone. A better recommendation: the more absurdist and funnier humor of The Lobster or Force Majeure.
10. Krisha - Wants to provoke as a searing melodrama, but is really just a compilation of shouting matches that purports to be D R A M A. It’s pointlessly exploitative and the characters aren’t given enough personality or story to support their freakouts. A better recommendation: the still exploitative but more enjoyable films of Xavier Dolan, like Mommy.
