Rove Live (2000)
a complete waste of air-time
This show is a shameless rip off of the American talk shows such as letterman, Leno, o'Brien and of course johnny Carson. i cannot get it through my head why rove mcmanus has his own show, and why it is popular. he is completely uncharismatic, and his jokes are terrible. some COULD BE OK, but aren't funny because his comic timing is so imprecise it hurts my head. although at times he has interesting people on his show, and some good music acts, when the show deals with just rove and his two friends Corine grant and peter hellier, who are mind numbingly unfunny also, it's an absolute drag. it's the poorest show i have ever seen in My whole entire life. Shaun Mccallif had his own show on 9 that got canned after 3 episodes and i still don't know why. it was the funniest thing i had ever seen. it should be Shaun live. rove just is not funny at all. he constantly gets overshadowed by his guests jokes, people that aren't even comedians! terrible, please take it off the air. oh and shock horror, a friend of mine saw a taping in Melbourne. yes, taping. it's not actually live. believe what you will.
Low Blow (1986)
When i see movies like this i dread to think of the amount of money and time wasted on such a completely horrendously awful piece of cinematic train-wreckage. By being this awful, it makes for a great comedy. I found this movie on DVD for $3 Australian (About 1.50 us) in a local electronics store. I had a spare 3 bucks and me being a fan of the martial arts genre, i thought why not. Well now i can think of plenty of reasons why not. The movie is about Joe Wong, a P.I. who wears a dirty singlet and doesn't pay bills. i THINK he is sleeping with his secretary but nothing is ever really explained in this movie. As stated in another review of this film, there is absolutely no continuity, and the synchronization of the punches looks as though it was handled by stevie wonder. But i was able to watch the whole thing as i was generally entertained by the absolute badness. Some of the things that kept me going include: -Bad quiet dialogue not even loud enough to hear over the music -Joe not being able to pay his bills, but being bale to set up a 'toughman' contest with thousands of dollars in prize money. -The sandwich shop fight scene, and all other fight scenes, after which Joe is never ever questioned by police despite killing 5 or 6 people each fight. -The lack of contact with any of the punches and kicks in the movie. - The atrocious, atrocious scene where Joe punches a man in the face, exploding it.(On closer slow motion inspection, the head appears to be made of rubber, the skin is a horrible brown, the mustache is painted on and the brains coming out the side is mince meat)
Unbelievably bad, but a fantastic laugh if you enjoy poorly made movies that are an actual attempt at a film.
