Eraserhead – re:View

Jay and Josh discuss David Lynch’s first feature film Eraserhead: a dream of dark and troubling things.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION:


Filed in: re:View

  • Mckadow

    When people tune into re:View they wanna see Mike Stoklasa and the other guy, they don’t want to see the other guy and some other guy.
    (before people rip me apart its just an early Half in the Bag reference lol)

  • Barking dog

    Such an weird movie.

  • tOmy`

    Look, thanks for taking my opinion seriously, but I think I should clarify:

    When I said “Where is the fat one with dark hair”, I should have also said “and without the beard”.

    But all kidding aside, Josh and Lynch in one episode? What the fuck, is RLM trying to prove some kind of a twisted love for me?

  • mister man

    Eraserhead is cool. It makes me want to watch.

    Jay is cool. He makes me want to watch.

    Fat beard belongs behind the camera. He makes me want to vomit.

  • Palpatine

    re:View has gone downhill since episode two!

  • Percy Gryce

    I’ve already clicked off.

  • Percy Gryce

    Was this ep filmed in black & white or is my TV broken again?

  • mister man

    its a tribute to the subject film

  • “I want my free content to be exactly how I want it!”

  • Percy Gryce

    The Phantom Menace was filmed in black & white? There goes that wacky George Lucas again.

  • tOmy`

    It really puts the “an” back into granmar, amirite?!

  • Percy Gryce

    There’s a smell coming through my television all right.

  • Percy Gryce

    So what’s the big deal about Jack Nance keeping his hair the same for the five years of filming? David Lynch could have just stuck a wig on him like Amir Shervan did to Matt Hannon in Samurai Cop–and everyone considers that movie a classic.

  • Percy Gryce

    Mike hates this movie, so if he were hosting this would have been a BOTW or a HITB like Zaat.

  • Percy Gryce

    It’s over already? I was just getting warmed up.

    Oh, there is the extended version on Soundcloud. Follow me over there, boys.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Delete your disclaimer. We have to bring out the noobs.

  • Percy Gryce

    Right. Never explain, never apologize.

  • Eucratides_Megas

    You know it’s bizarre when Dune is the most restrained film in a director’s canon.

    Thank you though for doing this. I have heard of Eraserhead a thousand times before this, never gotten around to seeing it, and I am now content with that state of affairs. People like you two love this movie. I’m far too jaded/twisted to be really repulsed by the thing, it just looks like a depressing chore to sit through.

    It’s nice that you’re going to cover films from every possible genre and style though.

  • Ren1

    Hey cool…surprise content…ahhh dammit it’s the wizard.

  • HeftyJo

    Couldn’t Josh at least have tried to stop down the review in the middle for some absurd attempt at comedy? I know Stoklasa’s shoes are hard to fill but at least TRY and step up to the plate and knock an ingratiatingly, offensive joke out of the park.

  • Lt Hurwitz

    Mark Stoklasa is our God, we accept none before him.

  • Ren1

    Just kiddin’ Josh.

  • tOmy`

    You better be.

    You better be…

  • Ren1

    Of course!

  • Lt Hurwitz

    My fear of wife and children is the reason I can’t touch this movie. It is the most terrifying and disgusting movie ever made by leaps and bounds (yes even more than Space Cop). It beats the life out of you and I despise it. Sorry, Susan.

  • Ren1

    Love the black and white!

  • The Straight Story I would say is more restrained.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Dune? I thought it was The Elephant Man.

  • Blart Derp

    This was the best thing I’ve seen on the site in a while. Well done!

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    Sorry, I’m Canadian.

  • Richard Vaughan

    I think the lady in the radiator is meant to represent a masturbatory fantasy. That’s why she’s dancing on a stage with ‘sperm monsters’ ineffectually falling all around her. When he wakes up his bed is filled with said monsters (wet dream) which he throws towards the cupboard, where he hid an odd little worm earlier (repression of desire). This is a stretch but her weird face might be an attempt to maker her look like Betty Boop who was, despite being a cartoon, considered sex symbol of her day.

    I also think cutting open the babies
    bandages and the subsequent nightmare that followed may represent an attempted castration, to permanently quell the desires that led him to his current predicament and the whole planet (egg) cracking open and being embraced by the woman in the radiator represented a return to infantile ideals of woman as motherly comforter devoid of sexual overtones.

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    It’s not until I watched this re:View that I realized how much of Eraserhead I had forgotten.

  • CapedBaldy

    I liked that they did something different, but I felt they basically made an Eraserhead commercial. I’d like a bit more information on the film and it’s impact – or at least some real discussion about why it was influential or maybe overrated. I think that’s why Jay and Mike work on the other films. Compare and contrast is better than masturbation. haha. Anyway, I think Eraserhead is a decent flick but a bit overrated. It’s something you say you like cuz that’s what indie film people like.. for whatever reason. It has merits for sure, but it’s a wee-bit dry and slow. I guess it’s weird for the average man but it’s not that shocking anymore. How about a real masterpiece like Angst?

  • Jerome Gorden

    All babies that are disabled or deformed should be mutilated in the womb before they are born. They’re subhuman monsters. If they’re not cute and cuddly, they don’t deserve to live! Heil Hitler!

  • CarSVernon

    “It’s something you say you like cuz that’s what indie film people like”

    Jay is textbook liking everything he’s supposed to like.

    Anyway, they raved about Tremors too and that was great, I hope they don’t have too many “debate” episodes honestly.

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    Creepy that those were recordings of Jennifer Lynch… David also asked her to write Laura Palmer’s Secret Diary, which also creeped me out.

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    same for children anyways… i wish i had a waifu *sad pepe*

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    you didn’t watch that one botw did you?

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    Yeah… there are a lot more Lynch films more restrained than Dune… in fact I might dare to say that Dune is his second least restrained. (just watched it last night… dear god…)

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    I’m sad Michael Ontkean isn’t gonna be in twin peaks tho 🙁

  • Ogrot

    Ahh Eraserhead. The greatest date movie of all time.

  • Sheriff Mitchell

    Mike sat this one out on account of Eraserhead not being as good as the latest Ninja Turtles film.

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    well lynch also believe in teaching religion in church

  • Jerome Gorden

    You mean his transcendental meditation?
    We live in a society where a guy can take a picture of his own shit and some crazed progressive will call it “high art”. This movie looks disgusting and depressing. Where the fuck is Mike when you need him?

  • AreyouaNazi? Isthatyourelf?

    All this content, I feel so spoiled. And to think I was going to mail you Funnel Webs.

  • Wolvy

    V’Ger must evolve!

  • Wolvy

    What happened to the Fred Flintstone guy? All i see is the Barney Rubble guy and the Mr. Slate guy.

  • OMNI

    Nice, but short, and yes I know there is am extended track. I’ll have to give t a listen.

  • OMNI

    I think Wizard is very good at movie discussions.

  • Sgt Weeniearms

    The hack to fraud ratio is way off, where’s my Night Cout re:View

  • rashad1

    But Independence Day 1996 is a abomination

    White creepy weird shit I guess

  • Hey! Josh drove out here on his weekend to do this!

  • Maybe Wizard is an angel sent to test your faith.

  • Xels Raven

    Please Re-View Bladerunner

  • CapedBaldy

    I think the point is films that people haven’t seen.

  • CapedBaldy

    It’s not as good as a lot of films to be honest.

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    yes to all

  • Xels Raven

    You mean films like “Independance Day”? 😀

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    yeah lmao. i thought point was for movies we *have* seen

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    After seeing Dune, my mom always said, especially of David Lynch movies, “there are well-made movies and there are movies worth making.”

  • Ren1

    re:View Bladerunner Jay, and I dare you to say it does nothing for you again!

  • Ren1

    LoL!

  • Bubs

    I like that this review was done in black and white. Not only is it thematically and visually similar to the film, Eraserhead, but it also removes any and all doubt that you are in fact hipsters.

  • Strelnikov

    It took Lynch six years to make it, Jack Vance kept that hairstyle the whole way through.

  • Eucratides_Megas

    I’d disagree with that. Most of the craziness in Dune is all in the world-building. There’s still a solid narrative structure, solid (if poorly rendered characters) right from the book. The most mind-bending sequence are Paul Atreides prescient dreams.

    I find Dune far more accessible and grounded than something like Inland Empire. Maybe it’s because I’m a mega-fan of all the books (even the Kevin J. Anderson/Bryan Herbert’ cash-ins).

  • Eucratides_Megas

    That’s a good point. I always forget the Elephant Man. Maybe its because it really is the least Lynch-ian of Lynch’s movies.

  • Eucratides_Megas

    It’s amazing but if there had just been a scene of him cutting his own balls off, that would probably have been less disturbing to a lot of people than the deformed baby guts.

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    But didn’t he add a bunch of freaky deaky sexual stuff that wasn’t in the books?

  • Eucratides_Megas

    John Carpenter’s The Thing is the greatest date movie of all time. When they strong-enough of stomach to not hurl and will still let you manfully comfort them at all the pure awful, awesomeness, you’ve got yourself a winner.

  • David Lynch’s genius sows by just how much mileage he can get out of a rubber baby.
    You suck Clint Eastwood!

  • Eucratides_Megas

    The books are way more sexually. The movie hints that the Baron is a pedophile, the book outright says it. When Jessica transforms the Water of Life, the Fremen have a literal Sietch orgy where everyone fucks like rabbits.

    The closest he came to out-weirding the source material was his design of the Guild Navigators.

    Alejandro Jodorowsky’s failed Dune project did have a lot of outright bizarre sexuality inserted into it—some from HR Giger, some from Jodorowsky himself.

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    Even the S&M, murder/rape, torture stuff? Haven’t read the books, but that’s just what I’ve heard/read from people who have seen the movie and read the books.

  • Eucratides_Megas

    Just photoshop a picture of the new Ghostbuster’s movie poster over the deformed baby and Eraserhead becomes the perfect metaphor for horribly that movie is going to suck. Just picture Paul Feige as Jack Nance and Kristen Wiig as Mary X.

  • Eucratides_Megas

    Yep, its all in there. The Baron is a pedophile murderer, and in the prequels it gets pretty horrifying. The original series also has its moments. By Heretics of Dune there is an army of super amazons sexually enslaving entire planets to do their bidding.

  • Joe Syxpac

    Me 30 minutes ago: Oh! New vid on RLM! Eraserhead? I’m vaguely aware that that existed but I have no idea what it’s about. I’m gonna make some food and sit down and watch it.

    Me right now: I really wish I wasn’t eating while I watched that.

  • Woah, Kismet. Just yesterday I watched “Mulholland Drive” for the first time ever and immediately thought of how this show should do an episode on a David Lynch movie.

    Sad that it is one of the ones I have never seen. I also thought of “Brows Held High” too, but that is a separate matter.

  • Azraell

    From what I can grasp, the sound in Eraser was not “revolutionary” as “there where nothing like that before”.
    Because before Lynch, there was Jacques Tati, and Eraserhead seems to get its sound design style from what Tati did in his films.
    Every sounds in his films were post produced and careffuly design in the same way it was in Eraserhead, but 10, and more, years before.

    look for “Playtime”, 1967, it’s mindblowing and use the same kind of humor as the “elevator scene” in Eraserhead.

  • Joe Syxpac

    Repressed memories?

  • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

    Oh yeah I was thinking of the stuff that came out before the movie. I’m not surprised it got freakier after, lol.

  • Bubs

    Where’d you get your scarf and horn-rimmed glasses? Let’s talk about it over a glass of PBR.

  • Jay hates it. Mike does too.

  • It was an OK episode. I learned nothing new about the interpretation of the movie but it was fun to hear your thoughts on it.

  • Are you saying you hate women, sir!?

  • Fabio Flintstone hates artsy movies, he’s a schlock connoisseur.

  • Chomiq

    Hey Jay, wtf is with audio on this one? There’s like sub level bass all over the parts when both of you talk. It’s almost headache inducing.

  • Kenlin Bros

    Maybe Mike made the same mistake as me?

    Turns out, for my entire life, I have conflated Eraserhead and Hellraiser. Kept on waiting for that Pinhead guy I’ve seen on T-shirts to show up.

  • Is anyone else frightened while getting their mail in the morning? I mean there are cars everywhere!

  • Now I Get It

    The stonewall-ing is strong in this one.

    See what I did? I, too, just called you ghey.

  • Azraell

    There is nothing hipster about being french.
    And I can only guess that David Lynch knew about directors and films you don’t.
    Why would you overlook the inspirations he used to learn from his predecessor and make even greater films ?

  • Lt Hurwitz

    He’s saying women should be put on ships and shot into the Sun, the dastard.

  • tOmy`

    Throw in one “Kafkaesque” for a good measure.

  • tOmy`

    They are trying to be more approachable to the EDM youth of today.

  • Cool Re-view guys. The movie has definitely his moments, and yeah, amazing visual effetcs. This shit feels real indeed. It is very possible that they used some animal body pieces and stuff. And this is not the only movie doing this I think, but yeah it really was very well made.
    Funny thing, you made it all in black and white, and that’s just perfect.
    At one point I just forgot it was, and thought your cameras shots were in colors, pretty funny when I realized you weren’t.

  • lucid_flux

    The sheer terror of the idea of having a child like that is enough to turn a man gay.

  • lucid_flux

    Obviously the father is god and we are his mutant children.

  • John

    Which one was Dune?

  • So I talked to this guy Anton on the phone. He said he was in some darkdepth or void of some sort like maybe Detroit, Michigan or Memphis, Tennessee. Bad connection could not really hear what he said and there were loud people screaming in the background. He must have been at a Ramstein concert or something. It was hot he said, really really hot and people were mean to him. Really, really weird. Well anyway back to working on step 7 in my AA class.

  • nametaken

    i’d try contraceptives as my first option.

  • Ogrot

    Wrong. When the baby in Eraserhead is revealed for the first time, you seize the moment to whisper to her, “I have a diaper fetish.” And if she doesn’t leave, that is when you have a winner.

  • Ogrot

    You know I’m right.

  • tOmy`

    Which one is the 7th one again? Vodka?

  • I forgot because of my coke addiction.

  • Oh darn, it’s July 4th. Happy 9/11 America.

  • NicCagesHair

    Speaking of dark and troubling things, it’s time to watch the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

    Why not make the video long enough for the whole discussion?

    You’re really milking this one, aren’t you? It’s like 4chan in here.

  • Judge Frownyface

    It’s not just a reference. It was true back then, and it’s true now!

  • Drain

    That is one fucked up baby. It looks like E T, or some kind of demon spawn. They should put it out of its misery and bury it in the backyard. Assuming it doesn’t die on its own within the first few years, you condemn it to a life of deformed misery. Why the hell would anyone keep that THING? Not only would I not keep it, but I’d sterilize myself to remove any risk of creating another one, and adopt from an orphanage for the next round.

  • RLMkeepitup

    its good to have a plan B

  • Mr.Fister

    5 years of making this movie is a joke compared to Boyhood…it took 12 years!

  • Cream-A-Thon

    I fucking hated this movie and by proxy David Lynch.

  • Chuck Afterburner

    Review Tetsuo The Iron Man, I keep seeing part 2: Body Hammer in your movie rack, please fuck up and watch it. What I get from this review are subtle jabs at Mike, who has the movie taste of a 1999 nostalgia website, but the review would have been better with a differing opinion.

  • Eucratides_Megas

    So you’re saying she cheated on Jack Nance with E.T.? There’s a David Lynch film I need to see: E.T. 2: Child Support

  • Eucratides_Megas

    We could have watched the little Gollum baby grow into a asshole hipster Richard Linklater character.

  • Eucratides_Megas

    I’m like Macduff. I hate women so much I made the doctor C-section me rather than pass through one’s vagina.

  • Exidor

    I hope Jay was drinking PABST BLUE RIBBON !
    Not that Heiniken shit!

  • OMNI

    The original is the only one I dug. Animated aluminum foil can be cool.

  • OMNI

    I love Eraserhead for the nightmare that it is. All of the humor (it’s in there) is lost on me, like some dude your in jail with making jokes while your shitting bricks.

  • OMNI

    That’s part of the insanity of the movie It also parallels the audience who is probably going “Why am I watching this”? but you can take your eyes off of it.

  • OMNI

    Today is OUR independence dayyyy….!

  • OMNI

    “Plan, Butt?”

  • OMNI

    RLM always puts an annoying drone pseudo music as background noise. They’re fuckers to the nth degree….

  • OMNI

    I also was eating when I watched it. The baby doesn’t bug me visually, but the noises it makes are frightening

  • OMNI

    The latter…

  • OMNI

    Fucking Hack Frauds…

  • BCFC25

    You guys should discuss another one of David Lynch’s films Dune! Iam sure that sci-fi hack fraud Stoklasa and his side kick Susan would have a field day dicussing that film!

  • LameSame

    Thanks! I think so, too.

  • LameSame

    It’s meant to elicit Lynchian sound. Welcome to Lynch! He’s frustrating.

    Where’s Mike? Has Plinkett locked him in his basement and is “force” feeding him pizza rolls?

  • snot house

    made me want to watch eraserhead

  • Imperial_orb

    I googled 4th of July yestersday and I came across an interesting quote I’ve never heard before by John Adams:
    The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival.
    (Great speeche so far, very glorious very Human, but here it turns American) It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

    I’m not American of course, and maybe it is even a famous quote I don’t know. But I was like; It all makes sense now.

    Mike needs to do a few sensible reviews to get his cred back before he takes on the turd abortion that is DUNE the movie.

  • OMNI

    Well he’s not that bad. Some of his good movies are:
    Eraserhead (I know Cream hated it)
    Elephant Man
    Blue Velvet
    Wild at Heart
    The rest of his stuff is unwatchable (besides Twin Peaks)

  • OMNI

    Just grow the top to 8 inches and buzz the back with a #2 guard on the clipper, have a slight weightline just above the ear and taper it at the nape of the neck.
    Get some cream pomade and pomp up the top with fingers and a comb. 🙂
    I have a few more inches to go on top before I have the David Lynch haircut.

  • spynet315

    You guys should film in black and white more, it looks artsy

  • OMNI

    They should do “Schlock” the movie and do it in B&W. Even though there is already a movie called “Schlock”.

    There are catalogs and websites, you know, you can just order one.

    They’re trying to drive traffic to their Soundcloud page. RLM is a multiplatform brand now.

    Your avatar agrees.

  • spynet315

    … Ok

  • BCFC25

    To be fair when he is not on screen he is a full blown crack addict!

  • Wasn’t “Straight Story” also a David Lynch movie?

  • Now I Get It

    I know. And then it still took them, like, three more weeks to lift the ban on trans troops. That’s one big W-to-the-F.

    Anytwee, Percums, I declared you a national treasure three months ago in front of Barnes & Noble, God, and everyone, after stipulating that I’m not one. (Gawd, what a party in my mouth that was.)

  • Imperial_orb

    God Hates Fags!

  • Imperial_orb

    Artsy? More like F-Artsy…

  • Imperial_orb

    Well, that was unexpected… thanks but like I said, I suck at styling my hair, I think my hair is too thick or something. I don’t know, I Don’t Know!

  • infernocanuck

    Holy shit. I don’t know what happened, but it looks like the times where this Disqus forum, that at one time was filled with literally thousands of irrelevant, inane stream-of-consciousness thoughts has… died. And people are actually mostly talking about the reviews now. It’s a fucking miracle.

    So, to ensure I don’t turn into a hypocrite, I liked the inclusion of Josh (he’s actually a personal favorite of mine) and there were some great thoughts in this episode. But I don’t think I’ll check out this movie. Not my cup o tea.

  • Jerome Gorden

    I kind of like the commenters here. They don’t take themselves too seriously. That’s rather refreshing, considering most of the people you encounter online are insane narcissists (I’m pretty sure I’m one).

    At least it had something to do with the video, rather than the inane thoughts like, “Today I went to the store and I saw some models of dinosaurs, dinosaurs are so cool. Thoughts on the old TV show ‘Dinosaurs?’

    Such inane, irrelevant and self-obsessed posting plagued the old 3000+ threads of yesteryear, and I’m glad that it’s dead.

    Well, they talked about the one docu about Dune. The one where they tell you about how they wanted to do the greatest movie of all time, with lots of big names in the creative field in it. Yeah right, because supergroups are always a recipe for success… besides you Traveling Wilburys (just kidding, I don’t like them).

  • RLMkeepitup

    Mulholland Dr is Lynch’s 2nd best movie in my opinion. I think it misses out on a lot of love because most people only watch a couple of key scenes before turning it off.

  • fred

  • junkevil

    That’s only because Jodorowsky didn’t get to do his though.

  • junkevil

    It’s pretty pointless to criticize them, they’ll just downvote your comments and repeatedly say you said things that you never actually said instead of actually addressing any of your criticisms. Then they’ll pat themselves on the back for it, and finish by jerking each other off. Oh, and don’t forget about repeating whatever ‘meme’ their clique enjoys that day. They’re going to do a lot of that. It could be something about tobacco or even celebrity death, they’re just so edgy!

  • DanceOfBirther

    I’m sorry.

  • What should I watch? Any favorites?

  • DanceOfBirther

    The Elephant Man and The Straight Story are easily his most accessible films. His other movies are generally much more abstract, surreal, and disturbing. I would recommend Mulholland Drive be watched last due to its highly reflexive and autobiographical nature.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Nobody ever downvoted you pathetic lying autist. when will you contribute on topic for once instead of bitching us about us day and night. isn’t that why you hated us? for being off-topic and inane all the time? mirrors are a thing that exist ya know.

  • Nordel

    There’s a movie I love called Johnny Suede that nobody else seems to like. But it’s my favorite movie. I just love it, I don’t know. I think it’s a good movie. It’s a little bit strange, but that’s what I like about it. Anyways, I would be interested in what Jay Mike think of it.

  • If you’re into wacky romcoms you can give Eraserhead a try.

  • CapedBaldy

    So.. We’re all obsessed with box officer results. This re:view got 1.3k views. The last one with Independence Day got 300k.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Lost Highway and Blue Velvet are good too.

    Inland Empire and Wild at Heart I like a lot less so. Same goes for the Twin Peaks movie.

    Dune is garbage. Sorry.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Jay knew this was going to happen, advising people to click “off”.

  • junkevil

    It’s pretty hilarious how badly you react to criticism.

  • CapedBaldy

    These hack frauds lost thousands in advertising revenues. Who is going to buy their beer now?

  • SUPERMAD

    Would it have, though? Lots of creative ambition there, but how would his version have been reined in (and it would have, considering the length and the cost)? I’m sure there would have been strokes of genius, but I don’t think it would’ve been as great as many people seem to think. Plus, Lynch had some great ideas, too.

    As a local celebrity and a heavy smoker, I say:

    Not cool, bredren, not cool.

    Look, I am not the one to start a flamewar and then run cackling into the sunset for the next four da-

    Wait, that’s exactly me! So let’s face it, by now it is pretty clear you are just a troll, because as someone clearly less obsessed than you already mentioned, you are here just to whine about people who are not here anyway. Fun stuff, tho: That doesn’t make you part of the solution, but (these days) more of a majority of the problem.

    I mean shit, even Omni gave it a rest when we did and became my new best friend! And I am supposed to hate that guy or something!

    So just take a breather already, and stop moaning and lying about people who have done you nothing wrong. Actually, as far as I remember, they even made a fucking avatar for you. The only one jerking-off here is you, to some half-arsed assumption about what is what.

    The Anime?

  • Imperial_orb

    Yes, watch Twin Peaks it’s charming, I know that’s a bit of an vacuous word to discribe movies and TV series but, it’s pretty fitting. The guy from Show Girls (and Twin Peaks of course) plays an FBI Agent that gets send into a small town to solve something, and he’s charmed by the small town feeling of this… small town… that is so charming. And also exciting stuff and nice Characters happen.
    Also it’s only one season basically you don’t need to bother watching the second season. It’s so clear that they don’t knew where they where going.

  • Imperial_orb

    Yeah, watch Twin Peaks it’s charming, I know that’s a vacuous word to discribe movies and TV series but, it’s pretty fitting. The guy from Show Girls (and Twin Peaks of course) plays an FBI Agent that gets send into a small town to solve something, and he’s very “charmed” by the small town feeling of this… small town… that is so charming. And also exciting stuff and nice Characters happen.
    Also it’s only one season basically, you don’t need to bother watching the second season. It’s so clear that they don’t knew where they where going.

    Well it is Star Trek after all I guess and seeing all those other 2016 turds floating around I might as well go see it? Gord I hate this!

    it’s okay. the paul walker joke bank was getting low

  • RLMkeepitup

    hey you guys are skipping lots of new schlock.. like warcraft world and teenage mutant CG. Movies I have no interest in seeing. Others have vowed not to review girlbusters. Don’t do this to me.

  • OMNI

    Oddly enough, they’re both cinematic history. Both films mark a turning point.
    I love Eraserhead because I love nightmares and am fascinated by mental illness, that pretty much sums up Eraserhead.

    It’s painfully obvious that RLM is extremely un-focused, un-organized and in need of some management.
    They’re all over the place lately.
    I sense a disturbance in the Farce……

  • OMNI

    Well the last one was ridiculous and in bad taste, so I’m with ya..

  • OMNI

    As and artist I can give a resounding YES! I love my public……

  • It was and it had nothing that could redeem it. Maybe the special effects? I dunno, The 2009 had issues but it had qualities which I liked and I can’t really hate it. Again with the hate.

    Well at least we get to watch girls fend off ghost this month.

  • OMNI

    It had special effects?

  • There have been no real releases they wanted to cover I guess.

  • There was the biggerer ship that admiral Robocop drove that the Enterprise had to fistfight. That was CG. Loud CG.

  • OMNI

    There are hundreds of games. Sorry thousands. RLM could do a daily show for the next five years. I say laziness.

  • OMNI

    I just remember a wee door….

  • fred

    They do streams and stuff. They don’t always release their shit here because people always bitch about it.

    Like I said — they mostly stream twice a week, and do reviews on games they find interesting or amusing.

  • fred

    Whcih moopie is this. The John Woo one?

  • fred

    You HATE Eraserhead? What’s their to hate…you can be bored by certain parts of it, but it’s kinda suppoesed to be boring in a way.

    Independence Day is complete shit though I’ll give ya that (xept for the 90s Will SMith stuff that’s always fun)

  • OMNI

    weeeelll that sucks……..

  • OMNI

    Sulu IS gay. It’s canon beyotches…

  • OMNI

    I don’t think it’s boring. I always have a wide-eyed look of horror when I watch it.

  • OMNI

    I always do, but I guess I miss the gamer talk that surrounds the show.
    I don’t want to watch people play games, I want to play them myself and then watch shows about it and talk to other gamers.

  • fred

    I’m just explaining that even boredom is a more reasonable term than I HATE IT !!! SO MUCH !! More than Brett Ratner? Get some fucking perspective.

  • fred

    You can check out their Youtube channel for more reviews. They’re technically not a part of rlm.

  • fred

    I usually get bored at some point during most of David Lynch’s films (except Blue Velvet) — which isn’t a bad thing. A lot of his characters struggle with boredom. Henry’s apartment window faces a brick wall for fucks sake — it adds to the hopelessness of the situation, doesn’t make it a bad thing.

    I personally love Pre Rectum. I’m a big fan, as I often state. It’d be a shame if it disappeared. I do hope that jokes at the show’s expense haven’t contributed to any possible… changes. Rich’n’Jack cling to a spirit of gaming that I feel very kindred to. FUCKING LOSERS!

    But I really doubt it’s actually gone; they get hundreds of thousands of views per month. If I got that many views on YouTube, I’d start sucking serious dick before cancelling anything.

  • LameSame

    I once dated a girl named Eraserhead. She had tons of VDs. I got syphilis, gonorrhea, crabs, herpes, hepatitties, scroogemcduckis, HIV, HPV, JB007, pneumonia, and something very rashy. We had very experimental sex, though, and I remember it completely in black & white. I framed her for rape and now she’s rotting in jail. All in all, it was a great weekend.

  • Yes

  • DanceOfBirther

    Indeed, I really enjoyed it until Rukia was rescued, after that quality really jerked around when the show started pulling new storylines out of it’s ass. I read the manga up to the defeat of Aizen, I completely lost interest after that.

    I kinda do. I watched 5 season of LOST on hulu.

  • OMNI

    I like the way “Dangerous Men” has a higher star rating than Blue Velvet on Amazon….

  • Imperial_orb

    I call that “Kicking the Balls”. It’s a refrence to Dragonball, who at some point as you surely know, forgot all about the Dragonballs and was just about kicking&punching and shooting energy (and save the world), and it worked, the kids loved it.
    So did Bleach if I remember correctly. First it was about this guy fighting off a demon/monster per episode that was invading his japanese smalltown. Then in a very short time it became all about having more then godlike powers and kicking ass (and lots and lots of Anime tropes).

  • Mitchell Taco Nash

    I know you can’t see me but I’m laughing really hard.

  • Spoiled Ants

    I don’t mind them sitting one out, they watched enough blockbuster crap in the past months, they probably have ball cancer by now.
    I’m pretty sure they will cover Ghostbusters for HitB, otherwise it would be a missed oportunity for another one of their mini-movies starring Mister Plinkett as Slimer and Mike’nJay in drag.

  • Strelnikov

    That’s Lynch’s commentary on Philadelphia; in the early 1970s he lived in a house on the corner of 13th and Wood (it’s now a parking lot) across from what was the morgue.

    “We lived cheap, but the city was full of fear. A kid was shot to death
    down the street, and the chalk marks around where he’d lain stayed on
    the sidewalk for five days. We were robbed twice, had windows shot out
    and a car stolen.”

    “Philadelphia, more than any filmmaker, influenced me. It’s the sickest, most corrupt, decaying, fear-ridden city imaginable. I was very poor and living in bad areas. I felt like I was constantly in danger. But it was so fantastic at the same time.”

  • Strelnikov

    Scottish Jews exist – Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits is one.

  • Strelnikov

    Blame Eraserhead on Philadelphia.

    “Yes, [Philadelphia is] horrible, but in a very interesting way. There were
    places there that had been allowed to decay, where there was so much
    fear and crime that just for a moment there was an opening to another
    world. It was fear, but it was so strong, and so magical, like a
    magnet, that your imagination was always sparking in Philadelphia…..I
    just have to think of Philadelphia now, and I get ideas, I hear the
    wind, and I’m off into the darkness somewhere.”
    – David Lynch

  • NilbogResident

    I personally liked his stellar character study in Twister, not to mention the character’s interplay with the plot, helping to drive it forward with increasing tension (“The Suck Zone”, “Greenage”). His character also embodied the band of renegade meteorologists/scientists as carefree, and gelled well with organic nature of Paxton’s (“The Extreme”) dirt-blowing to find the deeper truth. This is all nicely juxtaposed with the evil, black-drenched meterologists relying on satellite comlink and NexRad Realtime.

  • Eucratides_Megas

    So Philadelphia gave us the Rocky series AND the career of David Lynch?!

  • Eucratides_Megas

    Its Space Gay, so maybe they grew her in a tube?

    Or adoption. Must be lots of orphans around after they met the Klingons.

  • Strelnikov

    It also gave us the Constitution, Frank Rizzo (America’s Worst Mayor™), Bill Cosby’s college career, Mumia Abu Jamal, and a place for the people of Newark, New Jersey to flee to.

  • LameSame

    I love the term “Space Gay”. Maybe that just means he’s gay when he’s in space and straight when he’s on-planet? Like the gravity does something to his hormones or something. Maybe we’re all “Space Gay”.

    No Jay. This is not about somebody not wanting a family. This is about somebody who’s future was destroyed because of a tiny mistake.

  • LameSame

    I’d say both are true (as they are in no way mutually exclusive), though you’re puting forth a much broader idea. I’m pretty sure Jay would probably agree with the additional theme you’re putting forward. I don’t know why you have it in your head that he wouldn’t, or that he’s wrong with his very compelling analysis.

  • LameSame

    Paxil? That’s Paxil talk.

    at 17:10 he says the sentence that implies that. But now I’m not so sure if this is really his opinion, too. He could just imagined our everyday moviegoer who don’t like to think much and wanted to give him a reason to watch the movie. At least that is how it sounds to me now.

  • ikdks

    You know who totally ripped off Eraserhead? Mr. Robot.

    And I don’t just mean the hair.

  • Foreman 371

    Hey that was my comment! And I’m pretty sure it was about them questioning the protagonists motifs. Which are fear of beeing a father. Loosing controle over your own life. It baffled me that Jay was wondering about this when a child is such a life changer.
