The Browing Have Horrible Taste in Movies

  • Axl Rosenberg

The Fourth Kind Movie PosterHave you ever seen the movie The Fourth Kind? I’ve made it through roughly the first third and it was a truly horrendous experience (and that was watching it on cable with the aid of fun-enhancement herbs… if a movie can’t succeed under those circumstances…). The three words that best describe the movie? “Boring,” “as,” and “fuck.” And apparently, I’m not the only person who felt this way.

The very stupid premise of the movie is that it’s a true story (which it obviously is not) about aliens and that some of the footage of the movie is “real” archival footage (which is about as convincing as your average Weekly World News cover) and some of the footage is dramatic re-enactments starring Milla Jovovich and some other actors who apparently lost a game of foosball to Ghost.

I’m saying it’s a crap movie.

Why am I rambling on about this turd? Because The Browning have released a video for their song “The Fifth Kind,” and I dunno if the song’s very name is a deliberate reference to the movie or not, but the video most certainly is. Which might not be so yuk-yuk-worthy if their homage to this drek was ironic, but there doesn’t appear to be any irony here whatsoever. The band (and presumably directors Frankie Nasso and Jess Orsburn) seem to actually dig this movie.

Which makes sense, I guess. It’s not like anyone who makes music this stupid is sitting at home watching Truffaut films in their spare time, y’know?

I’m sure this song is on an album which is out now or out soon or whatever, but seriously who gives a fucking fuck.
