Comedy gold: “Academy Award Winning Movie Trailer”

posted at 2:00 pm on March 13, 2010 by Allahpundit

A note-perfect salute to the lazy, manipulative, middlebrow schmaltz we all know and cringe at. I think it’s a parody, but who knows? Now that Hollywood’s moved to a business model based on recycling, a flick like this may simply be the next logical step. Here’s to a showdown at next year’s Oscars between “Movie Title” and that Matt Damon opus about how the neocons lied us into war so that they could grab Saddam’s oil.

If you like those literalist versions of pop songs, brace yourself: In a world filled with mindless movie cliches, you will believe that an arrogant hotshot can take on “the machine” while finding love and learning to care for his developmentally disabled brother/cousin/friend.

Gratuitous spelling/punctuation snark.

Triumphant last post on the thread, followed by demand to be acknowledged as the merciless thread-killer.

Okay, fine, 7%, be that way! :-)

Commenter brilliantly points out that some music is from “Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story.” Bonus kudos from other HotAir commenters for knowing that the composer is Randy Edelman and for pointing out similarities between “Movie Title” and “Gettysburg” themes.

Awaits other commenters approval but suspects will be mercilessly mocked by HotAir commenters for lame attempts at humour.

Will also get mocked for spelling humor with British spelling, although commenter is not British.

Post wondering what that mime would look like.

(me thinks you meant meme)

If a mime fell in the forest and there was no one there to hear it, would it make a sound?

Shucks Mary, you beat me to it.

What, the last-post-that-wasn’t, or the lace wigs? :-)

Mary in LA on March 16, 2010 at 1:55 AM

Merciless mocking of Pilgrimsarbour, who is just asking for it. :-)

Mary in LA on March 16, 2010 at 1:58 AM

Comment overly decorated with gratuitous smileys.

Wonders allowed how we’re supposed to know your not British.

Not to pile on, but it’s also you’re not your.

Comment of amazement that this thread is still alive even after scrolling off the Hot Air main page.

Mary in LA on March 16, 2010 at 12:37 PM

Raving disbelief over sheer number of comments. Plus, positive expression of jocularity expressed in three capitalized letters.
