Herodotus layin dat same game in his Histories: But happiness is too good for deez haterz.
A split-second of pain when dat hot lead goes through their dome ain’t enough. Edmond

  1. 3 Musketeers please. I read it twice but I didn't do a very good job picking up the symbolism and deeper subtext

  2. you really should have mentioned a few details like the anti royalists being bonapartists and danglar being the one who writes the letter etc

  3. These "notes" are moronic because anybody, from any background (no matter how poor), can elevate his thinking.

  4. This barely taps into the story, there's several different themes that the book discusses. Such as the limited options high standing women had in society. It's also enjoyable watching the Counts actions making sense as his enemies fall slowly to their demise.

  10. "I too, as happens to every man once in his life, have been taken by Satan into the highest mountain in the earth, and when there he showed me all the kingdoms of the world, and as he said before, so said he to me, `Child of earth, what wouldst thou have to make thee adore me?' I reflected long, for a gnawing ambition had long preyed upon me, and then I replied, `Listen, — I have always heard of providence, and yet I have never seen him, or anything that resembles him, or which can make me believe that he exists. I wish to be providence myself, for I feel that the most beautiful, noblest, most sublime thing in the world, is to recompense and punish.' Satan bowed his head, and groaned. `You mistake,' he said, `providence does exist, only you have never seen him, because the child of God is as invisible as the parent. You have seen nothing that resembles him, because he works by secret springs, and moves by hidden ways. All I can do for you is to make you one of the agents of that providence.' The bargain was concluded. I may sacrifice my soul, but what matters it?" added Monte Cristo."If the thing were to do again, I would again do it."

  13. Let's just take a moment to appreciate that he managed to summarize and analyze a 1,000 page novel.

  14. This is blackface real black people don't speak this way. All this video does is perpetuate negative stereotypes.

  15. this is up there with my love for TouchStone's film adaptation of the book <3 the story itself was too convoluted

  16. this is amazing…i watched this just for his hilarious voice while giving a summary about a serious piece of literature

  17. Love your shit, man, but you missed that TCOMC is a neoclassical look at the Age of Enlightenment. Edmond Dantes repeatedly compares himself to an avenging angel, arguing that his wealth and power are merely gifts designed to implement the will of a divine power. He aspires to angelic status, seeing it as the goal of wealth, knowledge and science. Rather than competing with god, he might rather bring about divine will by means of his own

  18. Alexandre Dumas was mixed race too. His Dad was the son of a slave and became a General in Napoleon's army.

  19. Forty seconds seconds in and you've already made a mistake. Caderousse was not "hatin', he was just too cowardly to do anything to stop Danglars and Mondego. Caderousse did not participate in the conspiracy against Dantes, he simply witnessed it.

    Reply

  20. Caderousse doesn’t even dislike Edmond, though, tbh. He goes on, like, a few drunken rants about how they’re friends and he doesn’t want Edmond to get hurts. He’s just kind of a dumbass and pretends to hate Edmond because he wants to pal around with Danglars. My boy gets a bad wrap 😔 (and then there’s post-time skip where he fucking kills a man but that doesn’t apply to young Caderousse)

  21. But Monsieur bertrucio killed monsiour de vile fort at that garden place, where he found the baby? im currently at chapter 44 'the vendeta' wtf how many versions of the book are out there

  22. I remember having to read the book in school & having to do a report on it. During the end of the yr when there's nothing to really do, we would watch movies for "class". I remember watching the old movie & loving it (because even though it had the trappings of a basic revenge/love story, it had other elements intricately entwined into the plot). The best thing to me was how carefully interwoven all the characters were to not only the main character, but to other major characters in the story. When I was an adult I bought the movie & it became my favorite movie (so much so that, when I eventually lost the dvd, I bought another–which I luckily found in a bargain bins, yrs later & still have. Luckily everything's going digital now, so I can always find a copy online).

  23. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorites. I was forced to read classics, however I took this one on my own. It shows how corruption and others' coveting and envy can destroy innocent men. Fortunately, my man ran into a man of the overrated Catholic Church that had integrity and morals, so such man would not reveal hidden treasure to haters that didn't deserve it. Being that political prisoner, he builds a tunnel just to find any human on the other side due to the isolation and loneliness. Both men find true friendship, as well as the same story of corruption, greed, and hate by haters. Count is sad by his companion's demise, however does what he has to in order to escape, using the tragedy as an advantage. He finds the treasure, sets things right with his perps, but he discovers that innocent people were also hurt, and sees that sometimes acts of revenge come back to bite you. He decides to value peace and become a better man, thus our hero lives the rest of his life a bit wiser and kinder.

  24. No mention of the pirate gang he joins right after escaping Chateau D'If? That was one of the thugiest parts of the book!

  25. I haven't read the book but my knowledge of the story is through the film. A good ol'revenge story!

  26. Alexandre Dumas wrote this and the novel Black Count which is loosley based on his father's life. Alexandre Dumas had an insane life.

    Reply

  27. Fuck this book and fuck Alexander Dumas. If you needa story where the message is "taking revenge is bad", just read a summary of the first three God of War video-games, it will save you 50 hours of tedious garbage you could be spending reading Les Miserables, which deals with the same themes in a much more constructive manner (and more) and is superior in every way.

  28. Shakespeare "revenge is a dish best served cold". All those years spent in prison it must have been fucking freezing but there's always collateral damage. 😎

    Reply

  29. “Skank”, “street justice”, and “what a motherfucking pimp” were two phrases I had never thought of in relation to The Count of Monte Cristo😂. This is fucking great.
