The Lyrics

Part of my "World Go Boom" self-challenge.
Holding guns in their hands
They're shooting up the room, that's the extent of their plan
They're trashing the movie set
The lines from their mouths, can't be distinguished
From the explosions and the guns
I'll eat my popcorn watching all the exciting things
It made a crap-ton of bucks
But the critics poo-poo, give it one star or two

All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, just boobs and guns
All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, not real entertainment

All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, all bang, no buck
All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, not real entertainment

I could watch these all day
There's guys like Micheal Bay, keep me entertained
But there's lots of hate for these guys
For Emmerich and others, flaming forums high
They say, I've got no taste, why?
Action films are all bad, I should watch real cinema
Guess what, I watch the good stuff, yes
But I like to unwind with brainless popcorn flicks, yeah

All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, not worth the bucks
All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, anti-entertainment

All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, big booms and guns
All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, I still like to watch 'em

(whistling interlude while shit done blows up)

All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, hot girls and guns
All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, not real entertainment

All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, not worth the bucks
All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, ask "How dare you like 'em?"

All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, all explosions
All the film critics hate on action flicks
They think they're dumb, really dumb, too bad, I still watch 'em

Slow one here, Conq. I am gonna have to assume your pacing is spot on as I cannot understand the verses of the OS to save my life.

This was used in ad in Aus for some sort of booze commercial wasn't it?

Hi conq - good to see you still posting and keeping the Aussie flag waving - you should do one on Oz's 1-12-7 gold-silver-bronze medal count. And yes, I agree, those film critics are just way too harsh on mindless action films

Sorry I didn't see this one earlier TCOP, because it's great! I agree that certain action movie don't get the due credit they deserve, however others are just awful! Like Expendables, maybe one of the worst films I've ever seen. Still love this parody though!
