The Spin-off Doctors: The Angry Birds Movie

Look, you can’t not talk about The Angry Birds Movie and avoid a political discussion.

I mean… you can… but we couldn’t. And it’s not so much discussion as it is gleefully reveling in our SJWishness and if you don’t like it, you’ll have to listen to another show. I mean it’s gleeful.

Also, this movie is crap.

This is a side-note as I’m listening to the beginning of the episode: I don’t really like Rick and Morty.

I am like hour 1

Do Pigs still try to steal and eat the eggs of the Birds at one point ?

Because its like totaly weird and not in line with what I knew about the Angry Bird Universe, This podcast is so strange seeing they both did not play Angry Birds and missed out on a the update downgrades till now. Some much changed from simple game, to a list of apps with cartoons in it and many microtransactions !

Maybe the film was designed to free you from emotions so you could reach Buddhist enlightenment?

I’d be more willing to give this film the benefit of the doubt if it wasn’t for the whole eagle thing. That kinda just makes me burrow my frow in deep suspicion at everything else. Oh well.

Anti-immigration and pro-paedophilia? So it IS about Trump!

So, off topic time – you remember the Jimquisition Episode “How Square Enix Kept Meddling With Deus Ex”? Well I get the feeling that Mankind Divided didn’t make sales dividends, as the team seems to be shuffling onto another project. What this means for the sequel your contact spoke about Jim I have no idea, though what I have heard is that the series is “going on a hiatus”.

I’d link the Article on Polygon, but I get the feeling this Comment Section still doesn’t like Weblinks. The Know also has a video on this.

I’m fine with political humor but it stretched for so long that I tuned out for at least a 40 minute chunk. As a piece of content it just made it boring to listen too. ‘Here they go again’ kind of thing, Ill tune out until they get back to events of the film so I can engage with it. I watched the movie to hear about it and so much was just barely tangentially related to the scenes (I’ve no dog in the political race personally). Your show, your rules and that, but this show has so much potential… Read more »

I don’t know about anyone else but I really enjoy episodes like this and Wreck-It Ralph or Pokemon where they find really dark messages in kids films.

Hmm, I wonder if what the writers had in mind was that the pigs aren’t supposed to be an allegory of real-world immigrants, but rather represent fictional XCOM extraterrestrials that specifically go around inducting themselves into other planets’ populations under the pretense of peace in order to eventually do them one over for their own species’ benefit; what opens this up to my mind is that the pigs are not a race of the birds’ setting – as in, a variant of the birds’ species the way the races of humanity are clearly all humans regardless of what differences you… Read more »

I spent a good portion of this podcast thinking “That’s political? You’re just being topical and properly analytic…”. Then I got around the 1:15 or so mark and was like “oooohhhhh.” It reminded me of hearing Rand Paul express similar sentiments as Conrad (the GOP being a bunch of hypocrits) earlier this month at a meeting of congress, very enthusiastically, with slides.

Oh, and I encourage anyone who doesn’t know who Phil Bryant is to look up his portrait. Jim is totally right.

haven’t listen to the podcast yet, but I take the anti immigration stance from this movie has to do the bird’s being angry about the poor green pigs immigrating to their island and taking some the birds eggs, even though there’s plenty of eggs to go around.

Looking forward to the rest of this episode after the “contains politics” warning! For me hearing my favorite media creators talk about politics really helps me deal with these difficult times.

That word you don’t know the word for is “non-medy.” It’s when a movie you’re not laughing at makes you slightly less laugh.

another good example of licensed music used correctly was regular show which i recommend everyone watch that is such a good show and for good original music i would say watch Steven universe or phineas and ferb

To this day I still think that Saints Row 3/4 are the example that should be followed by others, especially by films like this, if they’re gonna use licensed music.

It was on the Life of Black Tiger video when Jim stated I watched Angry Birds this morning it hasn’t been a good day so far.

The only thing I heard about this film was that it’s pretty anti-immigration a while back. I wonder if it actually is. *Listens to first 10 mins*
Aye, well that settles that then. Anti-immigration and FUN MUSIC, GUIS!! LETS DANCE AND FORGET ZOOTOPIA EXISTS!!

I get the distinct impression I ruined this movie for you by saying it was good and getting your hopes up that you wouldn’t have to watch shit. Not because you said anything about commenters, though (I’m still in the preamble).

I am sorry.

Bring it on! If you want your entertainment to be safe and apolitical you can go watch Family Feud or something.
