    OMG I guess I’d have to take advantage of this momentous occasion to ask when the next plinkett review is, but fuck it I’m too happy to even care

  • Uncle Sporkums

    WOW! Didn’t expect you to cover this! Merry (un-offensive holiday reference here), you Hack Frauds! When’s the next Best of the Plinkett in the Space Cop Bag?

  • Robby

    That’s right, Mike!

  • The Holiday Special is the ONLY product from George Lucas which he and the cast explicitly were ashamed of. Regardless what you think of the prequels, Holiday Special is the worst thing with the title Star Wars on it.

  • mrsleep

    I remember watching this in horror as a young man.
    Scarred for life.

    You’re still a bunch of frauds, get real jobs you hacks!

  • Robby

    Jack’s sweater is amazing.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    back to back RLM uploads? holy fuck is this the apocalypse?

  • Lt Hurwitz

    Jack, okay credit where its due. Sweater champion of Xmas.

  • Manioc

    Oh RLM, you’re spoiling us! In the milk or maybe car sense, I doubt anyone cares about Star Wars Holiday Special spoilers.

  • Future-Bound-Entertainment

    should have watched the two Ewok movies in addition to the holiday special… unless you guys did do that, because I haven’t finished watching this video yet.

  • diehounderdoggen

    I saw the Holiday Special a while back, thinking it’d be so bad it’s good.
    But it was just a miserable experience full of cringe and wookie shit.

  • Just look at how the vignette just appears at 3:56, it doesn’t fade in with the rest of the shot. YOU HACK FRAUDS!

  • Jillian

    A new BOTW! And so soon after the last one! You guys are spoiling us, seriously.

  • ohseanofnoise

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  • Punkster

    Oh no way, I need to go make the supper and this popped up. I just got finished watching The Hobbit HitB as well.
    Not that I am complaining.

  • Punkster

    That might be pushing it.
    Do you know if they are doing a live stream-a-thon this year, I’ve not heard anything about it?

  • Jillian

    How many of those Holiday Special DVDs do these guys have? Did the entire RLM commentary section send them one as punishment for the recent lack of Plinkett reviews? Or is this the same case as Nukie? Someone please enlighten me.

  • THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.

    I could not believe my eyes! I believe you caught all of us off guard.

  • Uncle Sporkums

    Yes. They said on the Pre Rec stream that it’s either New Years Eve or Day.

  • Thank the maker!

  • Uncle Sporkums

    Endless 9/11 trivialization!! Thumbs Down!! Unsubscribed!!

  • Uncle Sporkums

    I’m going to regret this!

  • Punkster

    Ah right, it is happening then, okay thanks for the info Sporkums.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    Jay said New Years Day.

  • Uncle Sporkums

    Yer welcome!

  • Uncle Sporkums

    Cool.

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    Rich Evans: “I get one phone call every year goddammit!”

  • I can’t believe it took you guys this long.

  • Uncle Sporkums

    “What happened?”

  • Continuously going off topic is all this film deserves. Good work you hack frauds.

  • Punkster

    I’m surprised Jorge didn’t try and bury every copy of it in a New Mexico land fill.
    For that reason I am glad it still exists.

  • Heywood Jablowme

    This is brightening up my day. I wish I had that Die hard sweat shirt. Thanks a lot.

  • Is it just me or did you hear chewie say “eat it” after Leia said “happy life day”?

  • 343btw

  • This Christmas the fraud ratio has gone up from fifty percent to a hundred percent!

  • Robotpals

    And here I thought the latest Best of the Worst was the perfect way to close out the year, and now we get a Christmas bonus!

  • Uncle Sporkums

    They actually started to play the Ishtar trailer over again. These hacks are geniuses.

  • You should at this point be getting to the joke…

  • diehounderdoggen

    FUCKING FUCK SHIT ASS SUCK YOU’RE RIGHT!

  • Right? We’re so spoiled. Being turned into monsters. It’s great. I demand more. I’m ready to turn on these guys in a second if I don’t get it. Merry Christmas.

  • Alexandria Sanders

    this was the greatest ever. thank you. stewart gordon, my film school teacher. no one likes him. great stuff. 🙂

  • Uncle Sporkums

    It’s Spanish for George. As in Lucas.

  • That’s a Star Wars reference just so you know…

    This episode is nothing more than a homage to the comments here. Off topic stuff, Obama, idiots protesting movies, gifs, and talking about trailers.

    Wow, someone must’ve been high or drunk during editing. 😀

  • Mike’s reaction to “lipstick” somebody…do it. NOW!

    I spotted at least four excellent gifs in there. If I was at home I’d be having a field day making them.

    Disqus won’t let me post images for some reason, but I made a Christmas card from that “Baby Jesus is an asshole” freeze frame, and plan on sending it to my conservative, mormon family members. Happy Holidays, guys.

  • Uncle Sporkums

    Of course it was…

  • Sully

    Mike’s face after he mentions that a Wookie “must be hung underneathe all that fur”, and his face again when Jay refers to a dog’s dick as “Lipstick.” Hahahaaa

  • dextromethorphan

    To be honest, this is one of the best episodes of Best of the Worst you’ve made. I have enjoyed it immensely. I wish you’d ad lib and wax lyrical on a myriad of disjointed topics more often. Thank you for a most unexpected Christmas present. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, you most lovable hack frauds.

    This was review was amazing.

    First, you guys rip George by not even talking about how horrible the special is, then you guys are going to mock Jackson by making a 3 part series out of this review.

    You guys are geniuses.

  • Spock did actually have violent outbursts on the TOS and was still learning to master his emotions. They did overwhelm him from time to time or as he and other Vulcans viewed it ,being over powered or governed by emotions. Spocks father Sarek had begun to loose his control over his emotions in a TNG episode and had pshychotic episodes. It’s called the Bendii syndrome or disease. In the TNG episode crewmembers of the Enterprise were affected and became irritated and hostile just of Sareks pure presense. Mike makes a good point on the J.J Spock and I agree with him. Spock is supercharged by the Abrams-universe but they are not entirely wrong on making Spock the way he is. I like the Nimoy Spock alot more and I think subtle dramatic (or even frightening) utterances serve Spock better than loud hypercharges do. Vulcans are immensly powerful and dicipline the mind for a reason.

  • If Jonathan Frakes directs Star Trek 3 “The search for Spocks character” I would watch it. I don’t see Frakes as a movie director, he should stick to tv-series. This said the J.J Star Trek could use some “Frakes-style” pacing and simplicity(the positive kind). He problably won’t get the job and I guess we should be greatful but still… I don’t know I like Frakes.

    Just listen to the Previously Recorded lets play sessions. Jay is in them quite often and aside from them playing the game and commenting on it at times. they mostly talk about stuff like this. The only difference is that Mike is never there.

    Just when I think I’m wise to all of the coming RLM comedy subversions, they pull one over on me.

  • castlemonster

    Oh boy, I can’t wait for them to not talk about the SW Holiday Special in Part 2!

  • JohnBigbooty

    I saw the Star Wars Holiday Special on TV as a kid, but barely remember it. Almost nobody had VCRs then, so this horrible special was the only way to get your Star Wars fix on film. Unfortunately, that type of humor and variety entertainment was pretty normal back then. I mean hell, even 5 years later, they were doing the Ewok rap. Didn’t improve that much. But many years later, when I got a bootleg of it…I’ve never cringed so much in my life. My God.

    And yes, Joseph Pilato’s wonderfully over-the-top performance in Day made that movie, imo.

  • Pim Scutney

    Jesus Christ, this was fucking glorious. I was wondering how you guys were going to squeeze 42 minutes out of the Holiday Special, and the result was better than I could have hoped. This should be the genesis of a new RLM series: the gang sits around and half-drunkenly discusses whatever movies come to mind.

  • Kelsie

    …and this is why I love you guys.

  • Have a cheerful, festive and fraudulant Holiday mr Wizard!

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I really think they missed an opportunity there not making a Star Wars Prequels: The New Holiday Special, around 2000. They could’ve focused it all on the Gungans. The little kid would’ve been there. They could’ve done something to link it with the millennium or Y2K.

  • SkaMP

    I kinda wanna watch Ishtar now..

  • pp

    looks like something coming straight out from the mind of George Lucas.

  • Sundial83

    Wow, that was a waste of 43 minutes. They never discussed the video. Not at any point.

  • Robby

    I mean…no one’s stopping you from also making that joke. The Internet is a very tolerant and positive place, so have at it YOU FUCK.

  • castlemonster

    They should have remade it so that the characters were all celebrating actual Christmas instead of that horrid perverse pagan Star Wars holiday.

  • Flaw Filial

    All throughout this video, I was thoroughly entertained, befuddled, and pissed off.
    And, really, isn’t that what Christmas is all about?
    Baby Jesus is an asshole.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    The dinosaurs in Jurassic Park were never “scientifically accurate”. T-Rex was about 10% bigger, and much faster than the real thing (even by 1980s-1990s understanding of tyrannosaurs). Raptors were much bigger, people say they were actually deinonychus, but not even deinonychus were as big as the raptors from the movie. Maybe Utahraptors. Every dinosaur in JP was designed to look more menacing. The Spinosaurus in the movie was very different from what’s known from the fossils… but who gives a shit about the third movie?

    Besides, even in-movie Gennaro and Grant say they are not real animals. One says they are products, the other says they are monsters. Jurassic Park doesn’t need to conform to more recent science discoveries. It’s not BBC’s Walking with Dinosaurs or anything like that.

    They already tagged the Fast and the Furious director for Star Trek. Or so I read. Don’t know if it’s set in stone or they are still in negotiations.

  • DanceK

    JJ Abrams should have directed the Star Trek Holliday Special – The Dark of The Moon 3 – The return of Jason – The Prequel. And George Lucas should direct people to their seats in the theatre.

  • whip

    No you don’t. Really.

  • Jason

    I actually really like the Hobbit movies (haven’t seen the third one yet). There’s a bit too much CGI silliness, but fuck it, I’ve come to accept that that’s just the way movies are going to be made from now on.

  • Robby

    The most recent one? I don’t know, I haven’t seen any of the Fast and the Furious movies. At first I thought it was the director from Saw and The Conjuring (James Wan), but turns out HE will be directing the next Fast and the Furious movie.

    The Guy doing Star Trek is Justin Lin.

    This is crazy, last night I was thinking to myself “When are the RLM guys ganna talk about Ishtar?” It’s not as bad as you’d think, whats amazing is that the “water auction” scene is so bad it kills the movie with in 12 seconds of starting.

  • It just occured to me what Hollywood lacks the most… snipers.

  • Thanatos2k

    Can we have Jay just tell all Mike’s life stories? He’s much better at it.

  • playdude92 .

    You jest, but JJ Abrams could break his Star Wars movie the same way he failed at Star Trek, imo.

    And that is to be unoriginal at the core while pandering to the fan audience with recognizable tropes and quotes. I can only hope Lawrence Kasdan is at the helm in the writers room.

  • The old man who sold Gizmo to pa’ Peltzer? Get out of here.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I don’t know if this better or worse than the April Fool’s BOTW.

  • Mr. R

    This was great but is there really part 2? So confused.

  • RedLetterRich

    But almost every time Spock “leaked” in TOS Spock’s mind was compromised in some way. Either mind control, some weird alien disease making him lose control, or the Pon Far.

    TOS Spock’s emotional bursts were (typically) subtle, few, and usually the result of outside influences. J.J. Spock is an emotional wreck who seems to flip out constantly. The brief outburst in 2009 Trek was pushing the boundaries, but Into Darkness Spock savagely beating Khan’s face was just awful. I think I laughed in the theater when that happened.

  • Mr. R

    I came to accept Peter won’t make good movies from now on.

  • I gotta also add that the only thing missing from this Star Wars Holiday review is that another woman also caused Bogdanovich to take a break from movies: when he dated Cybill Shepard they were on covers of everything, lookin’ all smug, then broke up. Bogdanovich claims everyone was so jealous of the relationship that it was impossible for him to make movies/make them without a lot of difficulty afterwards. * SOURCE: “What’s Up, Doc?” commentary, a great source of SW lore.

    Mike was somehow able to segway back into 9/11 right at the end there. Nicely done.

    I think your human Zen philosopher Basha summed it up best: What is the sound of one arm wanking? Or for that matter, the average 25-year-old’s sex life? Han Solo.

    Look at H Ford’s indignation. Just admire it.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    I hope part two is also a round-table discussion of everything except STAR WARS. That was hilarious.

    Except for all the ISHTAR sh!t, you hack frauds.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Now, back to 9/11.

  • WhatPlanetAmIOn

    Yeah! I’m so waiting for a Citizen Kane reboot, where several Kanes crash multiple rooms for 40 minutes. We’ve never actually seen that happen on such scale,so that’s what I’m waiting for.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    I don’t think we want “better” though, when it comes to Mike’s life stories.

    The sense of what defyuck that permeates Mike’s own reminiscences are fantastic. Jay should always just hang around and insert corrections.

    I just finished watching Day of the Dead thanks to these guys…

    I liked it, but Jay called it a great movie and i don’t quite agree. There was plenty suspense and tension generated by the interactions between the characters, stuff to think about, but i felt like it just came and went, didn’t like the ending, the comments about the acting, problems with how the characters come off… Not a great film, but good.

    I agree with Mike that it’s a great concept you can work with and i think he was cut short from going beyond just pointing out the over the top acting/characterization.

  • David Philip

    Now we wait for Part 2 like we do History of the World: Part 2.

  • I’d like to drop a comment on CGI complaining. Yes, when a filmmaker relies on too much VFX to shoot a scene, we can all lose. But, CG is just a tool. I’ve grown up on movies that had stopmotion animation and matte paintings on glass and it never got in the way of the story. Try to think of CGI shots as 3D moving matte paintings. Because you really can’t tell the difference between a CG effect and an in camera effect if it’s done properly. You think you can because it’s either unfinished or you know it’s not real because of what you know about reality. I never hear complaints about dramas that use fx to remove tv antennas and boom mikes or wires.

    Oh, boys… Thank you for sharing all your hard work with us for another year. Merry Christmas, sweethearts <3

    Merry Richmas to you to!

    It’s Richmas, you fyucks.

    Can’t we just get through one nice meal without you two swearing at each other and without Dad pulling his…

    Wait. I’m sorry. Holiday memories.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    I couldn’t read it. And I’m dumb. Mind explaining?

  • Michael Collins

    Jesus Christ’s Birthday!
    What the fook is going on all up in here?

    Will watch later…

    im sort of disappointed they didnt speak about the glorious trailer that was mad max fury road

  • Supermarky

    Thanks Wiz…back at you 🙂

  • Mark Andrew Edwards

    Did I just get trolled?

    Well I had fun anyway.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    I was thinking it’d be the producer of the dog-sitting video wanting to brainstorm the giraffe project.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    It’s Richmas, actually.

  • I’m about same age and remember seeing it on tv, too. Most of it. I was waiting to see Han Solo and feel asleep because of all the boring crap. But I saw the cartoon segment. The only worthwhile part.

    Years later, when droids premiered in the 80s, and the SWHS was a distant memory, I had déjà vu for entire episodes because ithe series was produced by the same people who did the special’s segment. They used the same model sheets and designs. But the writing was on par with the SWHS.

    How is it that almost every peripheral story to the main three movies completely sucks? It’s astonishing.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Baby Jesus is an asshole.

  • Jason

    I get all that, and to clarify I thought most of the CGI in the Hobbit movies was absolutely amazing, there were just a few parts where it was used inappropriately. Like the scene when the dwarves are juggling tea cups and bouncing plates off their foreheads, took me out of the movie, it was far too cartoony.
    I feel like in an older movie they would’ve hired professional jugglers to stand-in for the actors to get that scene done, and it would’ve been more authentic and impressive. It would’ve also been a lot more work, which is why they didn’t do it.
    As Alfred told Clark Kent: “With great power comes great responsibility.” CGI is one of the most powerful tools in modern moviemaking; when it’s used to enhance a movie it can have a great impact that would otherwise be impossible to achieve. But when it’s used irresponsibly, as an easy out to get a scene done the could and should be done by more traditional means, it comes off as fake and kills immersion instantly.

  • Robby

    Nothing says “Sorry you’re single again, but human being really weren’t meant to be monogamous and relationships are overrated anyways” quite like watching the new Best of the Worst for the fourth time in one day.

  • Oh yes. I agree. About the outside influence in TOS. About “Khaaan!Spock2014”. But I think there is still some merit to those who wrote the new Spock character. And my point was that when the control is lost over the mind the barbaric side of the Vulcans take over(Vulcans just call it violent tendencies cus it sound nicer). He was in ST 2009 introduced as a child of two worlds. He as a young man rejected the Vulcan academy, a place where older and experienced Vulcans could offer guidance. He views himself as Vulcan but is drawn to the humans. Thus finds a place in Starfleet, lives in an isolated minority amongst other cultures.

    Fast forward to ST 2014. Spock seems sure of himself and his logical approach to life. He is coping with his surroundings with the Vulcan part of himself. And I guess Quinto gives a little human flavor with the constant irritant look? I don’t know.

    Well. Here is what I thought merits the writers. Khan indirectly was responsible for the death Kirk and Spock snaps. He can’t deal with it logically and now the only reason for going after Khan is vengeance. He is clearly out to kill him. Totally taken over. There is no outside force but his mind still snaps and the reaction is similar to TOS and TNG Vulcans.

    In a Roddenberry Star Trek Into Darkness, Spock would not constantly say everything angrily and would have a constant flat persona with a few human elements ala Nimoy but I still wonder how Gene would let Spock act if driven by vengeance?

  • Ogrot

    Mike was so traumatized by his viewing of The Star Wars Holiday Special that the variety show is now a repressed memory that haunts him every now and then.

  • Only if they also fix the greenscreen and add some characters with CGI. The frame just wasn’t dense enough.

  • AAAAH I’m insane with anger. -Jayden Shemanbalam

  • pp

    This is definitely better. In fact, they should do nothing but stuff like this. Content will get progressively less intelligible and go off into more and more tangents until it’s nothing but pure static. Then we can communally off ourselves at a designated date, and put an end to all this misery.

  • Robby

    Ishtar looks like an Adam Sandler comedy. I can completely picture Adam Sandler in Dustin Hoffman’s role, and Kevin James in Warren Beatty’s. They even feature animal cruelty in the trailer.

  • pp

    Tell me about it! Half of my body is still inside my mother’s vagoons as I type. Lucky I came out feet first, right?

  • pp

    That’s actually spot on!

  • Sorry if I seemed to be pointing a finger at you directly. In the last half hour I’d read a lot of comments (in various places) that complained about CG fx and I kinda snapped.

    FWIW, I agree with everything you said above.

  • Robby

    What? I’m confused. Do you mean half your body is still in the blanket of the stork that brought you to your parents?

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    you went a little *dark* there at the end, considering it’s Richmas.

  • Robby

    It’s so meta.

    Yes, Robby, that’s exactly how parturition works.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Thank you. That explains why i didn’t get it, then.

  • Like Jay said he just needs an editor to say no. PJ is still a hell of a filmmaker and that’s clear in the love he tends to drown his movies in. The battle of Kong and T-Rexes is genius level story telling. I love that movie but understand it needs to be pruned.

  • pp

    oh it’s gonna be great!

  • Sebastian Bartolitius

    What´s wrong with your faith?!

  • pp

    “… isn’t that what Christmas Richmas is all about?”

    FTFY

  • It’s a just a quick christmas cashgrab. I would compare it to Jingle all the way 2 but that does not answer the question…. Is it like comparing two Kabasinski movies with eachother?

  • pp

    I don’t even know how to respond to this.

  • “Wow a 42 minute review of the Star Wars Holiday special?!”
    42 minutes later
    “…Oh”

  • Robby

    WAIT STOP EVERYTHING. Are you saying there’s a Jingle All The Way 2????????

  • TapewormBike

    Fuck, would a bi-weekly podcast with just shooting the shit been too much? I guess it would, but man…

  • Alex Lee

    Whaaatt?! I thought BoTW is about obscure bad films. We already know it sucks.

  • Sebastian Bartolitius

    Except when he´s questioning the sense of that whole PreRecLiveStream-Thingy from the background only to then get deeply into the inner working-mechanics of QWOP 😀

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    I’m currently watching a Youtube video of Mike shitting his pants in a game. You just have to know where to look.

  • Sully

    Well, it’s basically what Pre-Rec is, but I see your point. Just a round table discussion about films in general would be awesome. No movie in particular, just discussing whatever comes to mind and seeing where the topics lead them. I’m sure there are more stories to share.
    Hell they can invite Len, Matt, or others in on the roundtable.

  • TapewormBike

    Oh jeez, yeah I forgot that the manchildren play games and stuff. And talk. Losers.

  • VvdD

    Wait Mike is in the background of PreRec? I must have never seen the QWOP one, I have to go check that out now, sorry…

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Make that a 4th tier patreon exclusive.

  • pp

    But I thought ritual mass suicide was what Richmas was all about… or maybe it’s all the panettone I’ve been eating lately who knows.

  • Did you know that Amish Jay and Lumberjack Jay are the same guy? I don’t know what to nickname this new Jay. That doesn’t feel right either.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    The 4th tier Patreon exclusive will have roundtable discussions of what else Mike did to his Moss Man.

  • I would never shoot a movie I despise. That would be considered a hate crime

    Merry Richmas to you Sully….and Happy New Beer 🙂

  • Sebastian Bartolitius

    Yeah right! They finally have to realise that 4 people talking over each other about random topics just IS NOT ENOUGH to keep our tiny crocodile brains active. But I guess such elaborate FX work will have to wait until the re-release complete collector´s edition 🙁

    Nah, I like those, I just forget they exist (the vids and games generally as well).

  • Dyke Jay? Jay Dyke? I don’t think Omitted would give that the official confirmed for Jay approval.

  • I was thinking pure looks.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    So my husband was watching this BOTW with me, and he gets up at some point to do something else, which is rare for him. When I ask him what’s wrong, he goes “I don’t want to watch the RLM Disqus comments on a screen.”

  • You’re faster than me.

  • I’m starting to worry it’s not real. Like, History of the World Part 2.

  • I swear to Rich Evans, these are the only comments pages on the internet ever worth reading.

  • dick_the_bday_boy

    Rich and Mike sort of have an Itchy and Lumpy relationship going on.

  • Sellout! If you were a real artist you’d compress it down to half a movie!

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    So which one had the red lipstick rocket going on, then? Itchy or Lumpy?

  • You must be mistaken. They discuss several videos.

  • And honestly, I think the Holiday Special and 9/11 are a fair comparison.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Josh’s balls just dropped.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

  • TapewormBike

    I thought just being in a presence of Rich sobers you up.

    I haven´t watched every minute of PreRecLive myself but I very much like to listen to them on long car trips and such. Or as background chatter while playing FTL ;o) That way I didn´t miss a second so far. Not sure about this being an achievement or just sadthetic :)(

  • Pre-Rec streams rarely have anyone other than Rich and Jack on them. No disrespect to the two, but they’re kinda boring assholes on their own.

  • VvdD

    Most things are a little bit of everything 😉

  • Stay tuned for Part 2!

    Jay really loves the new Mad Max trailer though. He said so on a Pre-Rec stream. He’s also liked the old teaser trailer. And he’s someone who barely ever gets excited by movie trailers.

  • Fartastic

    I don’t even care anymore if it’s a new Half in the Bag, Best of the Worst, The Wheel of the Worst or a new Plinkett review. I’m just glad it’s not Blip.

    What’s the matter with you why are you so blip racist?

  • Well, that’s a pretty gross thought. I mean, I’m not Christian and I don’t think Christmas is a big deal, but Jesus being the first to break Virgin Mary’s hymen?
    Merry Christmas, everyone.

  • RLMkeepitup

    Thanks for a year of laughs guys! This was a great gift to the fans. I love the laughs at Rich’s expense only because Rich is spared no expense. But back on topic, they should clone Hammond in the next film. Too soon?

  • Michael Collins

    OK, just watched it, pure comedy gold..

    Merry Christmas you hack fucks..

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Are there any other weird pop culture icons or well known popular things that have been given a Holiday Special? A Cowboy Bebop Christmas Special, a Boyhood Christmas Special, or how about the Being John Malkovich Christmas Special.

  • VvdD

    Ok the end is totally worth it, Mike is actually calling Rich a master after trying QWOP for himself for a while, rambling on about mathematical calculations necessary to run this game and then when Rich takes over again and manages to “prance around”, he is actually genuinely impressed. That was lovely, thanks for informing me, a merry Christmas to you kind sir! (tips hat).

  • Stantz

    I put their PreRec stuff on in the background while playing Kerbal. I have no interest in what they’re playing, I just like imagining I have friends with similar interests

  • Michael Collins

    I liked the Dawn of the Dead remake btw…

  • The Narrator

    There’s the Inherent Vice Christmas Special, which is a 30-minute rant by Benicio del Toro after his character catches The Wizard of Oz on TV. It got better ratings than A Very The Master Christmas Special, at least.

  • phillipkslick

    New Red Letter Media content? “What day is this, boy?” “Tis Christmas day, sir!”

  • Now I Get It

    I have a feeling that, for Omitted, “No” means “Yes.”

  • pp

    I feel you, man, all my friends have different interests, like being freed from my basement cages, or be spared their daily beatings, or not thrown down into the pit of redemption…

  • Michael Collins

    One more thing, I have a speedcore techno record with a sample of that Day of the Dead guy they were talking about, “What the fuck you doin with my time”

    It’s all on topic.

  • Now I Get It

    So, there was a second spitter.

    Spit it. Spit it with your moouuuth.

  • Domo_Konnichiwa

    Is A Very The Master Christmas Special the one where Amy Adams jerks off Phillip Seymour’s Hoffman’s corpse underneath a mistletoe? That one always brings a tear to my Mother’s eye.

  • In The Court Of The Evans King

    So… That’s what a Pre-Rec stream looks like. Except, no video games.

  • The Narrator

    The FCC later used it to define the exact amount of feral masturbation that could be shown from behind on television. The amount was more than one minute but less than two.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    What about the famous There Will Be Blood Christmas Special? Daniel Plainview dresses as the Grinch and takes everyone’s milkshakes. Of course let us not forget the Avatar The Last Airbender Holiday Special. It’s not a Christmas Special but Viacom asked the creators for one. It was never aired yet it does exist somewhere within Paramount’s studio lot. I can confirm this as I have asked Dante Bascoe and Grey DeLisle about it and they said they recorded for it and do not wish to speak about it.

  • eddyk

    “Now, back to 9/11”

  • Michael Collins

    HA, I’ll be 50 next birthday!

    OMG!

  • VvdD

    It’s kind of what I said earlier, but I was proven wrong, there are at least 2 PreReq’s with Mike.

  • Michael Collins

    Rich was best dressed this episode, Space Invaders ftw…

  • JohnBigbooty

    I think standards for TV was so low back then, and they just wanted to slap something simple and goofy together for kids. And it’s not like Lucas exercised any type of quality control. But yeah, the Ewoks cartoon, Droids, Ewok TV movies…all just simple kiddie stuff. Well, except the part in the second Ewok movie where the little girl’s brother and parents are murdered in their tent at the beginning.

    The Holiday Special though, just couldn’t transcend the times it was made. It could only turn out the way it did. They had this new phenomena that raised the bar on SF, but the rest of the entertainment world was still in the 70s. I remember reading this glowing Starlog article about it too. People were just too jacked up on Star Wars and the 70s to know any better. Ohff.

  • Pa Kent Says Maybe

    Everyone have a Merry Richmas.

    Or, even if you celebrate Jaynukka or Kwanzard or any of the other holidays. The point is to celebrate and don’t don’t what you don’t. Because FROZEN is not just a song. It’s a storyline.

    If you travel, be safe. Lots of numb-nuts and YouTubers on the highways. And, the weather will be.

    RLM: Attack of Gifs

    It was truly a battle for the ages.
    There was fighting! There were conflicts involving historical remembrance! There was even a troll army! Like, for fucking real!
    An actual army of trolls! It escalated so much so, that even the RLM GMods got involved.

    In the end, nothing but ashes, and the corpses of vanquished trolls littered the comment sections, forever nameless. Those of us that survived, were left to do so without Gif, Image, or Video posting. It is our penance after the rapture, til Evans come (which is not as dirty as it sounds).

  • scd147

    My take away is… So what’s wrong with Jonathan Frakes directing the new Trek movie? The biggest problem I could see is kind of a fight breaking out for creative control between old school Trek and new school action Trek. Most of the issues I’ve seen is people saying Insurrection is bad, and I’ll give you the plot is weak, but the effects were okay (granted, not great) for 1998 and a modest budget. Also, Frake’s seems to be a good “actor’s director”. The cast doesn’t seem lifeless like they do in Nemesis. Besides, Frakes also directed First Contact. Allowing the argument that Insurrection was bad, he’s 1-1 for Trek films. Who else is 1-1? J.J. Abrams. Also, you’re 50% less likely to have light induced seizures by watching a film directed by Frakes. Actually, I’d like to know why Levar Burton isn’t included in this discussion.

    Well, that sucks and I’m probably going to cry tonight because of that. I was wondering why my GIFs weren’t posting correctly…

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Here’s a question: In episode III when they visit the wookie planet, did any of the wookies looked like these weird ones in the Holiday Special? Did they include an easter egg like that? Probably not, or even I would’ve heard of it.

  • Two points: 1) I was actually getting quasi-frustrated with the WAY too far off-topic-ness of this episode. I was wondering if it was going to some larger joke with a clever pay-off at the end as if it were almost planned that way, but it never really did. It was legitimately off the rails. 2) Taking the off-topic conversation as it was without the context of a Best of the Worst episode, I actually kind-of enjoyed it. You guys should seriously consider doing a “random” topics show periodically or even a podcast.

  • Joe Syxpac

    Jack, of course.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    The pre-rec streams, more often than not, are almost exactly what you describe.

    Vigorous Passion? Is that a type of brandy?

  • Michael Collins

    Seriously tho, as a social statement with satirical humour, and a *product of it’s day, the first is a classic and I love it.

    As a horror/action piece with moments of genuine tension, that’s well paced, and with good character development, I enjoyed the remake.

    *get it?

  • The Pre-Rec are the one RLM property I never watch/listen to, as I’m not into gaming at all.

  • Joe Syxpac

    I didn’t even know it existed until this review.

    But I’m going to find it.

  • Sully

    True Story: I had a cat named Ishtar when I was about 8. It was run over by a car.

    Why am I telling you this? That story is about as entertaining as the movie Ishtar. But then again, “entertainment” is a pretty subjective term, so take it as you will.

  • Joe Syxpac

    I’m pretty sure Mr Frakes is responsible for turning Star Trek into action shlock.

    It was very weird to see Picard pulling a John McClane.

  • Joe Syxpac

    That was a great story.

    I’d watch that if it was a movie.

  • pp

    ♪just one more round friends, then home we’re bound, frieeends…♪

  • Sully

    It was decent. Back when it came out, “good” Zombie movies were few and very far between.
    I just felt the whole thing was… unnecessary, as a remake I mean. It felt like a brand recognition cash grab kind of thing. Snyder could’ve easily built the same setup in an apartment building or a hospital, or anywhere and had it be a nod to Romero without trying to put his stamp on what is essentially an already perfect Zombie film.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    You came from the tubes! @noahroalson:disqus look!

  • Michael Collins

    I get ya, that didn’t bother me so much, not like the Robocop remake where they even used the same fucking music.

    I lasted about 10 mins watching that shit..

  • Where’s Paul Verhoeven?

    Mike only remembers Star Trek minutia.

  • phillipkslick

    I hated it then and I hate it now. It takes itself too seriously except for the Richard Cheese segment. I didn’t read the script, but I think Zack Snyder probably sucked much of the humor Gunn wrote into it with his Hackary (pun, get it)?

    I just tried to imagine a The Parallax View remake starring Kevin James. Now my brain hates me.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Jack (I believe it is Jack who does that) even includes a small description of the topics they discuss during the video. That way, you can know if they are just talking about the video game they are playing, which sometimes happens, so you can just skip that show.

  • Michael Collins

    I liked it cause it was a good horror movie, imo, and you hated it cause it wasn’t a comedy.

    Well OK then.

  • Robby

    I think Wizard Phoenix nailed it earlier when said this episode is actually making fun of us. The people who comment in these videos and go way off-topic about random things completely unrelated to the video. Once you watch it with that in mind, it becomes pretty obvious they’re doing it intentionally. Mike’s “Let’s talk about the illegal immigration situation,” the guys trying to jump from trailer to trailer and nitpick the plot points therein just like the trailer postings and discussion for Terminator and Jurassic Park from a few weeks ago in the comments, and the second mention of all the gifs that were created in as many videos.

    You can’t say “Jay” and “stick” in the same sentence around here. What’s the matter with you? Especially now that he’s leveled up in the hair department.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    My interpretation was that The Holiday Special is not worth talking about, and gives them nothing to work with. They can’t just say “It’s awful” for 30 minutes. It is the perfect excuse to talk about anything else.

  • RLMkeepitup

    I think that you both are right. And that of coarse makes me right as well.

    I love almost every Best of the Worst installment, and have watched them multiple times. But this was the Tree Stand Safety of BotW — a crushing disappointment.

  • Imesseduptheemail

    The part where you actually discussed the movie was great. The rest of it, where you went to any length you could not to discuss it? It was terrible, the review equivalent of a cockblock. I don’t care that it’s what you were going for, it was horrible and boring.

    This is basically the worst thing you guys have ever done, and I actually watched the Care Boars.

  • Boehm

    I think it comes from Frakes saying that what Star Trek fans wanted was a good action movie, where in reality most just wanted a Star Trek movie with a good story,

  • RLMkeepitup

    The rest of it… is in part 2. You could hold your complete review until then.. ? Patience, use the force.

  • phillipkslick

    It’s your opinion, but the original movie was filled with quite a bit of humor. I’m thinking when you do a remake of a good movie you should respect it, do your own thing, but also try to live up to the spirit of the original. What they did with DotD is like remaking Martin (the movie not the show) and having it resemble 30 Days of Night but in Los Angles rather than Alaska. Now if you remake a subpar or shitty movie, by all means do your own thing like what Cronenberg did with The Fly or Carpenter did with the Thing.

    Also, it wasn’t that good of a horror movie either.

  • Imesseduptheemail

    I’ll believe there’s a part 2 when I see it.

    Why the flying fuck does Disqus hide/eliminate all the other posts in a thread when you “view” a single response to a post in your history.

  • Gary Alexander

    It’s almost like the Best of the Worst on the Star Wars Holiday Special had just about as much to do with it as the Holiday Special had to do with Star Wars. Instead we got a… variety… of topics from the RLM guys during the… holidays.. as a kind of… special. How meta!

  • the corpse of Andrew Thompson.

    i dont know what your talking about. this was a great 9/11 review.

  • Jason Ross

    The 9/11 debate was just window dressing for Mike’s epic convention appearance of which he was incredibly intoxicated the whole time and very few people actually showed up.

  • Michael Collins

    We shall disagree..

  • Hank_Henshaw

    I liked it. Then again, I’d rank Star Wars somewhere between My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Ariana Grande’s discography, as far as things that are interesting to me. I can see this episode upsetting fans that really wanted to listen to their opinion on the Holiday Special. They did talk about the wookies, the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit, the Boba Fett animated short.

  • Michael Collins

    Yeah, am I right?

  • Michael Collins

    I think Jay remembers it differently.

  • Michael Collins

    You’ve been warned, no stick shall be omitted!

In a very strange and interesting way, it catches that “so bad it’s funny”-shtick – with that, I don’t mean the movie itself is bad or trying to be like a bad movie, it’s a genuinely great and entertaining movie in itself, it makes you care about the characters and everything. But whenever Johnny Depp (Ed Wood) talks in the movie about how he wants to create movies and put his artistic vision out there, you can’t help but laugh because you know his artistic vision is crap. In particular, there’s one scene where he meets Orson Welles and there’s this genuinely rousing moment: Ed Wood’s gonna go out there, he’s gonna face all opposition and do his movie no matter what, and it’s hilarious. It’s a very strange mix of emotions.

    I’m in the middle of watching that very movie, actually.

  • nightmare

    I think they will go into more detail, but kinda get off topic from time to time along the way =)

    So kinda betting on 2+3. There will most definitely be a part 2 though. The thought of there not being one never crossed my mind, actually. That is how certain I am.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Didn’t he get shot?

  • It’s central themes are fantastic, and toys with them in just such fun ways, Ed’s passion and blind positivist jointed with his helpless delusion and immense ineptitude could carry the whole movie anyway. But every other actor is given great compelling characters and brings their A game. The comedy in the film itself is nearly flawless while at time bordering on the zany or too-ridiculous-to-believe, one remembers “oh yeah, someone actually did create a film in which the climax was Bela Lagosi wrestling with a limp octopus” “this guy actually did make films out of mostly stock footage…oh yeah”. Filming in black and white was brilliant, the cinematography is only as engaging as it needs to be but it works to set the feel of minimalist capabilities. It’s interesting and funny, and full of great themes and messages. The film never condemns Wood, mocks him maybe, laughs at his foibles, but portrays him as a passionate authentic human being. I gave it a 10/10. Easily Burton’s best film.

    I saw it the night it originally aired. I got as far as the storm trooper ripping the doll’s head off when I got upset and turned the channel.

    I mean think about it. Remember when you were, like, three and a stuffed animal really meant something to you? What a horrible thing to put in a kid’s movie. Great, I have a deep existential sadness, like a splinter in my soul for the rest of my life. I’m one of the few people who’s childhood was raped by George Lucas in real time.

    I also distinctly remember that commercial where the woman does a cat’s cradle with the crotch of the panty hose. That might be why I fear vaginas.

    Mike doesn’t get new Spock. Spock prime took after his father. He wanted to be more Vulcan. New Spock took after his mother, that and Vulcans were dicks to him when he was a kid. That’s why he acts all emotional and gets laid. He’s more like Data, he wants to be more human.

    Of course that doesn’t excuse how shitty the second reboot movie was.

    PS: Jurassic Park 3 is underrated, the remake of Dawn of the Dead ruled, and Day of the Dead was god awful…

  • Punkster

    There was a guy cancelling his Patreon? Where was this at, in the comment section of a video or elsewhere?
    It’s just that I’ve never seen Jay or any RLM Staff leave a comment.

  • Robby

    Yeah, he/she posted multiple times across multiple videos that they hadn’t released any “actual” content (Pre-Rec, Half in the Bag, Best of the Worst) in three weeks and so cancelled their Patreon support. If Jay responded to any of them, I never saw it. I know Mitchy Taco did post just saying that per Rich/Jack/Jay in one of the Pre-Rec live streams they said they were in the middle of editing two epiosodes of Best of the Worst and also set to see and do a Half in the Bag of The Hobbit.

    Everyone has the same sentiments that Jay has in regards to the Hobbit, and it does stretch some things out here and there, but going by the actual Hobbit novel and the story elements presented in it, it would make for a terrible 90 minute movie. Things would be too rushed and have this feeling of starting and stopping and starting and stopping, some story elements would be confused and forgotten, and there would be too many moments that feel like climaxes but aren’t. Gandalf would be there and then just leave and return in the end, the Battle of the Five Armies wouldn’t have happened because Bilbo was unconscious for it. Do you want that in a movie? To be told a big battle happened but we won’t show it because the protagonist wasn’t conscious. Jackson gave more depth to the Battle of Helms Deep in Two Towers which was really lacking in the books.

It mainly got a bad rap at the time because the production went way over-budget, and May and Beatty had something of a meltdown. Dustin Hoffman to this day says he’s proud of the film (as he should be—he’s very good in it).

    I guess ST: Into Darkness was too subtle for Mike to grasp.

    Spock getting medieval on Khan was not done on a whim. It was preceded by Kirk’s death, which was the direct result of Khan’s actions.

    Now a fully logical and rational Vulcan would’ve sat there and probably said: “Yes, my captain is dead, but let’s not lose our composure and tact in capturing Khan.” Spock, however, can be viewed as the only character in Abrams Trek that has a massive “yes-gays” when it comes to Kirk. The villain just took his best friend from him, and there is no amount of logic, rationale or Vulcan tact that will keep him from hunting down Khan.

    Even with the first movie they emphasized how Spock would lose his composure (because of his human side) when people he loved were berated or threatened – particularly his mother. Having already lost his mother, Spock was now facing the reality of life without his best friend.

    The Vulcan side was being overridden by human side. The emotions were coming to the surface. The anger would not be contained. No amount of logical thinking would bring Kirk back. KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!

    And so Spock had descended into darkness… you see what they did there… like in the title… do you get it… it reflects Spock’s emotional state… get it… is it too subtle? Didn’t think so.

    I think the problems start when you try to view these characters in the context of old movies (like Mike does). This isn’t We-Don’t-Have-Enough-Money-Let’s-Talk-About-Diplomacy-and-Ethics-Trek, this is Space-Balls-to-The-Wall-Adventure-Trek. This is the Golden Age of Trek movies. Now if they can only keep it going with Trek 3.

    RLM isn’t as regular as some other video review sites but I think they’re better for it. I’m excited for every new video they put out. Good things take time. If they tried to produce a show every week, the quality would suffer. I’ll take quality over quantity.

    I think many of you are going to be sorely disappointed in Ishtar. The trailer may have made it look “ok” but that is common with trailers. I was forced to watch a substantial portion of this movie back in the day, a sort of family movie night. It was just awful. Stupid, boring and annoying. The whole family gave up on it after a point.

  • whip

    OH look, the Into Darkness fanboys STILL can’t help but post long winded rationales for that shitty, horribly written, poor excuse for a Star Trek film.

    Sad. I feel sorry for people who are so deeply rooted in their unwavering support of something so awful.

    This is not the “golden age” of Star Trek movies. It’s the complete bastardization and raping of a solid classic to appeal to the greater stupid masses, and mesermize them with a light show and keep them stuffing popcorn in their face. Shameless cashing in on a legacy, and trying to squeeze even more profit from it, rather than create something new. By completely bastardizing all that it ever stood for and radically changing it all, so it seems “fresh” and “new”.

    And a million fools suck it up and love it.

    They should do a remake of Ishtar with Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell. I think it would be a faithful remake/reboot in the sense that it would capture the same quality as the original.

    Naaaah… Adam Sandler and Kevin James.
    Will Ferrell actually IS both funny AND a capable actor.

    But if either Sandler or James are busy I’m sure Vince Vaughn and/or Owen Wilson are free for that remake.
    Either way, the movie would be a hit, possibly spawning a sequel as it is the custom of our times.

    Mall Cop 2 is coming out in April.

    Into Darkness was not subtle at all, it was a teenage soap opera with explosions.

  • VvdD

    Neither Warren Beatty or Dustin Hoffman were bad actors. I just imagined the remake with those two actors.

    Sandler taking Hoffman’s role (that Arabic scream thingy Dustin does seems like something Sandler would do ad lib, throughout the whole movie, over and over again) and Beatty’s role by Ferrell because he is a comedy actor and he is tall, so they would the same physical dynamic going on, and I couldn’t think of anyone better of the top of my head.

    Your suggestions are excellent too, I am sure they’ll result in an equally impressive movie.

    Personal opinion time; I find Vegas such a boring place as a setting to a movie(or game), I am sure the place is amazing to visit, but you might as well shoot your movie in Disney World. It’s fakeness clashes with a movies attempt to suspend disbelief. I know what I am saying makes no sense, but whatever… /poorly constructed personal opinion.

    ill go against the grain and say that you presented a very logical argument, points for pointing out how its in character as established in a previous movie.

  • *I* Iron my Jean Skirts

    So I’ve watched Frozen 3 times in the last 36 hours. It’s pretty good, a well written movie certainly. I think the only thing I dislike about it is…. Olaf. :p

  • *I* Iron my Jean Skirts

    In a movie that was so proudly subverting and mocking Disney cliches I’m kind of surprised they just shoehorned in a typical comic relief character like Olaf. They could have at least LITERALLY have him arrive on a shoe horn or something.

  • Like Icare

    I get what you mean.
    Actual locations feel like a set because they are essentially fake and artificial – a Disney World for adults. With gambling issues.

    As for Beatty-Hoffman…
    Ferrell is not that much taller than Sandler.

    But for the movie to REALLY get into that Ishtar territory, they should get Sandler to play a dwarf.
    Hey, if Garry Oldman can do it…
    And then they should have a scene where they try to escape their ISIS pursuers by Ferrell pretending to be a ventriloquist, with midget Sandler being his dummy.

    And then they get into a fight and Ferrell leaves lying Sandler on the stage, and a monkey comes over and pees in Sandler’s face.
    And the crowd cheers. Except Jeff Dunham and his puppets…
    No! WAIT! I GOT IT!

    They were pretending to be Jeff Dunham and Achmed the Dead Terrorist, so Sandler has to put on blackface makeup but he accidentally uses permanent color and so he goes around as a blackface midget for the rest of the movie.
    And he’s also gay.

    Goddammit, this shit is writing itself!

  • VvdD

    Yep pretty much, and the sad thing is it would probably make heaps of money, although there have be a few awkward jokes about gay’s, overweight people and disabled people as well, wouldn’t be a proper Sandler movie without them.

  • its called bleach

    im probably the only person annoyed by this stuff, but…
    is it too much effort to throw an “in my opinion” in front of these comments, or like “i thought” in front of them. for example, i thought frozen sucked, another boring soulless disney movie. im not god, its not objective fact. nobody is god. even, rich evans help me, jay and mike arent god. i liked boyhood, i THOUGHT it was good, by the way. but jay and mike are usually like hey what did you think, well i thought this. im just sick of people implying that theyre cinema experts who can judge shit on an objective scale. is it weird? am i weird? i know im weird, thats why i post on the redlettermedia dot com webzone

    Sandler and Ferrell would never make a movie together. They belong to different groups. Ferrell does movies mostly with the Adam McKay/Fratpack crew, and Sandler is the leader of the Happy Madison/early-90s SNL guys.

    Will Ferrell can be funny, every once in a while, depending on who is he working with. No one can remember the last time Adam Sandler made anyone laugh.

  • VvdD

    Most if not all things we say are obviously our opinion, so wanting everyone to write it in front of their messages is kind of pointless unless you want to point specific attention to it. Perhaps and this is not me trying to be dick, but just trying to give my perspective, it would be easier to just presume everyone is just speaking their opinion, unless they explicitly mention or strongly allude to it being a fact.

    As for Frozen I didn’t like it at all, I like my Disney movies with less obvious social commentary and with more obvious tear-jerky moments. Never seen Boyhood, so I can’t say anything about it.

    But there are quite a few movies that I like that Jay and Mike disliked, and it doesn’t bother me. I still find their arguments solid, but I don’t always agree with their final verdict. Also Mike and Jay don’t always agree with each other, and they don’t judge each other on it. The most mature thing is to just say your opinion without disabling someone else’s opinion.

    Also you are not weird, unless weird is a good thing, then yes we are both weird 😉

    I’m just going to say it, in a world with Uwe Boll Ishtar is actually a pretty fair movie.

    Why do both Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher look so creepy in the Holiday special though, yet Harrison Ford looks like his dashing self.

    I know about Hamill’s accident, what is Carrie Fisher’s excuse?

  • andypants1989

    I still think it would have worked better as two movies rather than three, but in spite of the material being thin I think that Peter Jackson has become a better film-maker as time has gone on. LOTR had pacing problems even in the theatrical edits. Remember Return of the King and its five fucking endings? The cinematography has also greatly improved and Martin Freeman is also a far superior actor to Elijah Wood. I think a lot of the backlash to the Hobbit movies is based on the fact that the concept is not new and fresh anymore. I would’ve been interested in seeing what Del Toro had planned. It’s a shame that never came about, but Peter Jackson does a pretty good job of working with this source material, not great, just workmanlike and effective, which is more than you can say about a lot of modern directors.

  • andypants1989

  • VvdD

    Yeah thanks, but that’s right now, that doesn’t explain the way she looks in the holiday special. Since she looked alright albeit a little older in Empire and Jedi, which are both after the special. In the Holiday Special it looks like they put orange wall plaster all over her face and then drew her face back on.

  • andypants1989

    Maybe she didn’t think there would be a sequel? I read somewhere that she got in really good shape for Empire then complained that she was always wearing billowy outfits, which is why they gave her the slave girl outfit in Return. Also, I doubt the make-up was up to the same standard.

But, that’s just an apologists argument that can be pulled when the next film is more action shlock. So maybe it really isn’t such a bad idea after all.

    the statement that only 30 species have feathers is skewing the point of the general consensus because it implies that every living ancient dinosaur can be put into that ”dinosaur” basket for the purpose of inflating the numbers to make it seem as though well if that’s the case, it sounds small, but in reality when speaking of feathered dinosaurs we are mainly talking about the main trunk of the tree – the through line – that is the spine of the genetic tree, the trunk is feathered, branches not included

    personally i think feathered dinosaurs could be awesome, because they also say they were probably very colorful too, but i think the idea behind j world is the genetically modified type.. so feathers mean not much so other than us talking about it.. it prob matters little to the movie ..really although they do have velociraptors but as you say not all of them may be feathered anyway.. so again matters not, if that is the way they wanna go, but its not the spirit of jurassic park, weather that means anything to the public who knows..

    Honestly I’m a massive fan of the Terminator franchise and I think the new trailer looks pretty freaking cool. The only thing that really bugs me in it is the use of the “I’ll be back” line. I think the use of “Come with me if you want to live” is appropriate to really showcase the role reversal of Sarah and Kyle but “I’ll be back” is a line that has gotten so overused at this point I can’t help but yawn. I didn’t even like when the two lines were reused in T2.

    Jurassic Park’s “raptors” were really Deinonychus, anyway, not what paleontologists call Velociraptors.

    The “realism” of the first movie was overblown to begin with.

    Whaaaaaat?! Jack played Lotr TCG too? That’s awesome

  • Kyle

    That’s not fair. Jack hadn’t answered the question of whether he’d seen Day of the Dead, at least not in the video. He just asked which one that was.

    34:21 Rich Evans: “I have a grape!”

    Jack says it’s been almost 20 years since Jurassic Park came out. The Jurassic Park movie came out in 1993. When was this video shot?

  • the corpse of Andrew Thompson.

    22 is almost 20.

    how is this not a 20,000 comment video?
    oh yeah the streamathon madness….

    I usually have a grape when watching Jurassic Park sequels. It’s called box wine.

    You know how some people say that Grand Budapest Hotel is the the most Wes Andersony of the Wes Anderson movies? I think this is the most RLM-y of RLM’s content. It is certainly one of my favorites.

  • Lat

    I think The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou is the most Anderson-esque. The little stop-motion, fantasy animals, Bill Murray in the lead with Willem Defoe as a wacky, foreign supporting character, pretentious Brits. It’s at least my favorite of his movies. AND it’s even a little meta with the whole shooting-a-movie-in-a-movie thing.

  • Lat

    OR MAYBE they were appealing to the masses and not being nitpicky about paleontology. You know, just a thought.

  • Grackene

    That is my favorite Wes movie also.

    OK, 23 years ago…

    I bet he was there telling people to recruit more pimps and pushers

    There is another episode of PreRec live where Mike plays Don’t Shit Your Pants. And I remember him leaving a live stream after a minute or so, since he isn’t much of a gamer.

    There was almost nothing realistic about the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park. From the fact that the absolutely smartest of dinosaurs were slightly dumber than the dumbest birds living today, to the idea that they ran as fast as speeding cars, which is based on science that would say a Model T could go 500 mph because it had wheels and wheels can spin fast, so why pretend like they’re doing worse now?

    These men are paaaawns!!!

    These guys are legit funny, conversationally.

    Getting back on topic, Terminator was the bomb

    As Halloween’s coming up, Day of the Dead’s been on my mind. Watched it again recently. Totally agree with Jay here. It’s the best of the trilogy. I love Dawn of the Dead but I don’t really get why everyone’s crazy about it (putting it at Number 1 on Top Ten lists etc.)

  • metalhusky

    Because people can relate to the people in Dawn of the Dead more, then soldiers and scientists in Day -//- , beeing in a mall alone is a fucking dream for many people, and having fun with all the stuff there and then zombies come and bikers… in my opinion it is the best of all “…of the Dead” movies.

  • Craig Shriver

    So. The message is clear: Do not watch The Star Wars Holiday Special without getting blackout drunk, because you do not want to remember a damn thing about that show.

  • DoctorNick

    They don’t talk about the fucking movie for a 15 minute stretch in there

  • Rezuaq

    they don’t talk about the movie for a solid 43 minute stretch
