YouTube MovieBob is not a character I originally created. I am sure a lot of you have heard or read about him. I used to like, but when he went off on his tangent and made some bad jokes, I stopped watching him. I didn’t think it was me that made him do it, but rather, the fact that I didn’t have the ability to understand what he was talking about. A running theme these days, of having people who take to twitter to rant and create content that then goes off the track to other places where nobody really wants to listen to, means a hypocrite of the highest degree.
The hypocrisy was so striking that it became an online joke. There was a long standing joke in the internet world about YouTube MovieBob. The way he would get himself into a political debate by bringing up things that were politically incorrect, or things that happened in south park west, where he resides, and where the writers of south park est live. The way he would go on to insult everyone who disagreed with him, as well as the police, the teachers, and even the president. He is not just a YouTube moviebob, he is a troll.
Many times in the past, a person who used to be a nice guy, but then went off on a tangent to say something that made others angry, now claims that they are a victim of being a hypocrite. It’s funny, but it is not always true. In the early days of twitter, a person who used to be very nice, but then went on a Tweet storm, where she bashed others from the early days of Twitter. Does that mean a hypocrite of the early days of Twitter, she bashed others from the early days of Twitter, yet later changed her mind, and said that she was sorry. So, is she a hypocrisy, and what does she mean by that?
One of the funniest things that I have seen on there, is when one of the guests, after saying how mean some people on Twitter are, someone said to her, “you must be a real lady if you let those assholes run your business.” This is a woman who bashes other people from the early days of Twitter, she herself bashes other people from the early days of Twitter. So, is she a hypocrite? Sure, it’s funny, because there is a person who thinks that everyone on Twitter is a female. It’s kind of like a long lost love going back into the past and talking about the good old times.
One of my favorite clips that I have seen on there, is one where they were discussing Ben Stiller talking about meeting all of the rich and famous women on safari. One of the guests in the video said, “I didn’t see any women on safari. They’re too afraid. Plus, they’d get bored. They’re too busy worrying about getting their legs shot.” This makes me laugh, because it’s true, Ben Stiller did say that sometimes actors get so insecure on set that they don’t go out and meet other actors, but I think this is a little extreme.
I’ve heard a lot of things about Ben Stiller over the years, mostly positive. But watching “Catch Me If You Can” made me really stop and think, is he a hypocrite? Because if everyone was like him, then nothing good ever gets produced. It’s great to see someone in the entertainment business who is not a jack-of-all-trades, because if they are successful, then they are a lot smarter than the rest of us, and that means they know what they’re good at and they excel at it, and they don’t care if it doesn’t work for anybody else.
“Catch Me If You Can” is another movie that really takes a lot of itself to the edge, because it tackles a subject that many people in Hollywood shy away from, black women. The movie speaks to all of those who are scared of black women, and that is the subject of most of the films made by minorities. In this one, we get to see what life is like for a black female in Hollywood. We also get to see Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston having a very authentic relationship, which is rare in movies right now. Most of the film’s dialogue is between Jennifer Aniston and Ben Stiller, but some comes from others as well (like John Tutturro’s character). It’s a really touching story of two lovable characters.
Overall, “Catch Me If You Can” is a very entertaining movie. I enjoyed watching it and even got a laugh out of Jennifer Aniston’s sexy look onscreen. It makes you think about some of the problems other movies don’t address, like what exactly would happen if you went to an all white, all male salon? Or how about if Ben Stiller decided to have sex with an Asian woman in the movie, and if your Asian wife didn’t know about it, would that be considered acceptable in today’s world?
