Everything Wrong With Looper In Three Minutes And Other Cinema Sins

By January 16, 2013

You know when you’re watching a movie and you say (either to yourself or to a friend) “There’s no friggin’ WAY that would happen because…” or “Where the hell did THAT come from?!” then find yourself no longer watching the film for the story but rather to look for more inconsistencies, plot holes and other bits of ridiculousness?

Welcome to Cinema Sins.

Since launching their channel on YouTube in December 2012, Cinema Sins has churned out six Cinema Sins for The Amazing Spider-Man, The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, Prometheus, The Hunger Games, and the latest sin (uploaded just yesterday) – Looper.

Ready to see (and possibly argue with) Cinema Sins’ latest installment?

With a voiceover that sounds like your inner-snark realized and coming out to play, a timer and a bell to account for every “sin”, Cinema Sins will make you either love or hate them but in the end a lot of what they’re saying is right; except for the “discount Shia LaBeouf” comment.

I mean, come on, fellas…how could you NOT recognize Paul Dano from There Will Be Blood? I haven’t even SEEN Looper and recognized Dano right away. Did someone drink your milkshake and make you mad, bro?

Out of pure curiousity, I perused the other five videos on the channel and, having just seen The Dark Knight Rises, I gotta say enjoyed this “Everything Wrong With…” because I wondered about a lot of this stuff, too.

I would’ve added “Why is it that Catwoman all of a sudden knows EXACTLY how to ride and operate EVERY function on the Batcycle?”

They did nail the one that I actually laughed and said “WTF?” when it happened:

Love ’em or hate ’em, in the month since their channel’s launched Cinema Sins has managed to rack up nearly 3.9 million hits and over 65,000 subscribers; not bad at all for a channel that does nothing but bitch about films…can you imagine the number of times they’ve had to watch these films to see everything?

That’s SERIOUS commitment, people.  Glad they’re doing it because I don’t think I could, hahaha.

What’s that? You wanna see ONE MORE? Oh, okay…I’m in a giving mood today so here ya go.

…and if you’re needing an extra laugh or want to add to the fray, be sure to read some of the comments below each video; just as hilarious as the videos themselves.

Here’s a wee smackerel from their teardown of The Avengers:

I, too, have a nitpick toward Cinema Sins about the sin (shown below); ANYone who watches Marvel films KNOWS to stick around for the closing credits…

…not to mention HOW many times does Stark talk about shawarma in the film? Enough to tell you that you should probably stick around and watch the end credits (and you should be watching the end credits any way to give the crew who busted their ASS to make this film for you some thanks).

All that said, I am a fan of Cinema Sins and totes subscribed.
