Thread: Tiger King

  1. #1

    Default Tiger King

    Yesterday's news, but a documentary about private zoo owners was released on Netflix a while ago called Tiger King.

    For all those who watched let me ask: Which owner you hate the least?

    This documentary series is one of the most bizarre things that I ever watch. And I watch this entire series in one night, because each episode was getting more crazier. I think the only sane people in the series were Saff and Joe's campaign manager. For Carole and Don Lewis stuff, I think Carole did something to make Don to disappear to get his money. Of the zoo owners that were shown, I hate Doc Antle the least. The ones that I hate the most were Carole and Jeff Lowe.

    Oh man, what a fascinating train wreck it is. Who did I hate the least? Probably Joe. He's a nutjob and an asshole but something about him made it hard to completely hate him.

    Who I hated the most: Doc Antle. He tries to come off like he's the cool professional one, but he's creepy AF.

    It may have to do with the fact that the filmmakers admitted to editing out his more egregious (read: racist) comments

    Anyway, forget about most or least hated (Carole gets a disproportionate amount of hate but she's still pretty hypocritical and petty herself), I'll always cherish the fact that the least crazy of the big cat owners was the drug dealer who served as inspiration for Scarface.

    I guess I hated Jeff the least? He didn't start a sex cult or try to kill anyone.

    Jeff is a also a criminal, a schemer, a backstabber, and f'ing carried tiger cubs in a suitcase to lure in women in hotels. I bet a lot more stuff will come out about that guy eventually.

    all these people are horrible excuses of human beings

Even Saff commited a bunch of crimes (He's ok though). Even the 'documentary' makers are assholes. For one: making pure (admittedly entertaining) sensationalism when they promised to make a documentary raising awareness for animal welfare. Two: recklessly endangering the Baskins by purposefully leaving out very important facts pertaining to her ex's disappearance, painting her as a freaking murderer all to make for more compelling sensationalism. He had alzheimer's, he might've actually been involved with freaking maffia and his secretary who was accusing Carole in the show possibly embezzled from him etc. Don't like Carole but something's not right when Carole is the universally hated one when loads of people actually like Joe.

    The worst tiger owner is easily Doc Antle the patron diety of creepy narcissists and the least bad is Carole but she's still a total weirdo (what in the world is that wedding photo lmao). The only people I liked were Saff and the guy with the long hair who worked at joe's zoo. Such a sincere guy, love him.

    I recommend the Real Lawyer Reacts videos, there are some interesting insights into these people and everything that went down.

    That should be the official subtitle.

    Trump's talking about pardoning Joe so he'll probably show up in the sequel.

    Yeah they were my favorite too. John Finlay doesn't seem bad, once he got off the drugs and out of an abusive relationship. He has teeth now too!

    I could see these people being some of the low ranking mini bosses.

    Yes, lets garner more sympathy for the guy who roped a heterosexual 19 year old man into marrying him by preying on his meth addiction, and used the mother of said man to prop up his next wedding to ANOTHER extremely young man two months after the former accidentally killed himself. The guy who would antagonize a rival for years on end with videos of him doing mock executions of her, the guy who torched evidence and bred countless tiger cubs to be sold as pets or used for pettings in a dingy zoo that had to resort to expired meat to feed its animals which at one point were starving because the guy was blowing all his money on a crazy feud against a person he eventually tried soliciting the murder of.

    Why the fuck do people like this guy. He's not "kooky", he's pure scum, even within the framing of the show

    Even had they been completely fair, don't underestimate the "has a penis ==harmless goofball" vs "Has no penis == shrill monster" angle

    I don't think anyone here has any sympathy for Joe Exotic.

    Also don't think it's safe to assume they're going to make him a sympathetic character in the movie. Nicolas Cage has a career full of characters you have zero sympathy for, lol.
