    Joe, you are an adult and don't even know the basics of how markets work
    1. There are more movies being made today
    2. Even if there weren't, you live in a mostly capitalist world
    Movies are commodities
    If there is no one to pay to watch movies then professional movies can't be made
    Amateur movies are partly connected to this as well, but there you simply have other competing interests or problems
    For example, there might be other things that are more interesting to more people and therefore less people pursue film making careers
    Or people may perceive film making as not being as likely profitable (tied to capitalist point above) as other professions resulting in less people getting on that track as well
    There are like hundreds of other factors
    The fact that you act as if it is exclusively tied to technology is fucking scary ignorant and/or stupid
    Holy fuck

    Nice interview. I really dig Joe Bob Briggs and watched all those late night B-movie review programs back in the day. Kinda sad to see Joe Bob getting old; shows the aging of icons and the passage of an era.

    He’s a poor interviewer but he’s so happy and excited to be talking to his hero I don’t give a shit

  • Admiral Tug Benson

    Looks like Shudder is dropping the ball, servers went down right when it was supposed to start. They say they're working on it, looks like they didn't realize how popular Joe Bob is. Luckily I have a shitload of Monstervision reruns on a USB drive to fall back on.

    I remember watching Monstervision all the time after WCW and on the weekends.
    I remember one time he was showing "Carrie" and one scene had a wall with "Carrie White Eat Shit" on it and Joe Bob came back from break and went off on how TNT wouldn't let him say "Shit" but it was okay for it to be written on a wall in the movie. I loved Monstervision and that one scene stuck in my head to this day.

    His comment on how there should be more movies makes me think of games, because i feel like thats what did happen with games. Some very popular games the last few years have been made almost exclusively by one person. I think that it being not very practical to make a movie solo is a big reason why there aren't the kind of movies he's looking for.

    To answer Joe Bobb’s question as to why independent filmmakers aren’t making more films; they are. But they’re not being released in art house theaters anymore. They’re being posted on TheXvid.

  • Nikkeloodeon
    Nikkeloodeon 12 days ago

    I couldn't agree more on what Briggs says here about Frankenstein. Being 200 years old, the book is still one of the best novels I've ever read. That's saying something because I've read several 19th and 20th century novels that have aged particularly poorly. Frankenstein is an exception in this case being an awesome psychological thriller, constantly questioning the concept of life, for instance. It should be made into a proper, great budget Hollywood film, since the plot is exceptional. I have no idea why no-one's done this yet. Just don't make it a monster film, since the novel does not really feature "a monster" per se.

    Not trying to be a jerk, but what was up with the few and far between close-up shots? I just think the pacing and editing could be a bit more professional... considering that Joe Bob is a living legend and James is not exactly an amateur.
