Pre-Rec: Steam Controller

November 14, 20153,235 Comments

Jack and Rich try out the Steam Controller. Also a Spork is a utensil that has the qualities of both a spoon and a fork but the functionality of neither.

    First to say: Fuck Pre-Rec.

  • LukasH

    Well that’s just rude.

  • Michael Prescott

    Aww, smells like butt-hurt fanboy.

  • Stingy Mackle

    >More customization a problem and blessing

    Come on guys get it together.
    They have a preset on the Steam controller, It took me 5-10 minutes to figure it out how to set my settings, Jack how did you spend 4 hours figuring this out; were you inebriated?

    Edit: Sensitivity complaints = true tho

  • LukasH

    No, it’s a typical greeting in our native language.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    beat me to it!

  • dollar store cashier wife

    You should watch Jack play games on twitch. No hyperbole intented-a child figures out basic mechanics faster then him.

  • tOmy`

    LOL, Steam Controller is the best thing ever, buddy! Leveling up in CS:GO like it was Diablo 2 on easy, dem noobs don’t have shit on Steam Controller!

    STEAM CONTROLLER!

    Ah, n-now eventually you do plan to talk about video games on your, on your video game review show, right? *sticks out tongue*. Hello? *knocks on computer screen and then waves at it*. H-hello? *breathes on computer screen*. Yes?

    Whoa! Steam cuntrollers?! Well this will be an interesting episode…
    Oh… wait… oh…

  • LukasH

    I’ll just wait and kickstart the Steampunk Controller.

  • Rob Peterson

    There you have it ladies and gentlemen…the solution to all our problems: You can find it in a dumpster.

  • Rob Peterson

    I’ll take ten.

  • tOmy`

    The only chance to replace mouse and keyboard is to ban them and make people forget.

    Then you can sell this stuff.

  • Marvin Falz

    I really wonder, why anyone would even consider to develop a steam controller, since steam is such an outdated technology.

  • LukasH

    Take twenty and I’ll throw in a T-Shirt I plan to design.

  • Stingy Mackle

    I’m gonna give jack the benefit of the doubt, What game?

  • Like Icare

    Unless you’re on solar or wind (or have a portable diesel generator) – all your electricity is produced either by steam or water.

  • Like Icare

    Coal is just the burny-thing used to make steam.

    That’s the family motto.

  • Marvin Falz

    I use wood.

  • Like Icare

    Wood is just coal that is not quite ripe yet. I know, right?

  • Marvin Falz

    The forest is nearer to where I live, than the next coal mine. Just one little match and the game session may commence.

    You know, I’d been playing games on a computer my entire life – first a C64 about 30 years ago, then various PCs – and only got my first console about 5 years ago. And I’ve never looked back. My favourite game ever is a computer-only release (Wizardry 8) and I’d played it start to finish too many times to count. Ever since I got the console(s) I played it maybe 40h overall, I just find the keyboard and mouse too frustrating.

  • netcrave

    I have never used it, but the biggest argument against it was given to me when I read the Wasteland 2 DC changelog. It said that it added support for the Steam controller, but ONLY when you have the game on Steam. Now maybe I misunderstood it, or it’s something specific to this game only, but if that’s true, it means that the Steam controller will only work for games you have bought on Steam.
    If that’s truly the case, there can be no bigger argument against the Steam controller than this. I buy my games on several shops like GOG, humble, gamesrocket, gamesplanet, mcgame […] and not just on Steam. So if I have a game that supports the Steam controller on Steam, but I bought the game on GOG to have it DRM free, than I still can’t use it?!?

    Also they guys gave good arguments, I still feel like it was partially besides the point. To me the main reason they made this controller, was to address the fact that some gamers don’t like playing with mouse+keyboard and they wanted a product to fill this gap, a product that would specifically address this. Every other huge gaming platform has their own hardware as well, besides distributing the games. So this was the main thing here, not necessarily to somehow meld mouse+keyboard gaming with a controller.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    too many to list:/

  • Palpatine

    I didn’t watch the video, but I’m guessing from the comments that Rich and Jack prefer to use a mouse and keyboard, correct?

  • netcrave

    No. Jack has only played with controllers all his life and dislikes mouse+keyboard and Rich sometimes plays with mouse+keyboard.

  • Djorge

    I bought the Steam Controller along with the Link. The Link is a lot better, since it removes the hassle of having to move a computer around.

  • yourtownisnext

    It means “Peace among worlds.”

  • Marvin Falz

    Rich is a mouse and keyboard guy.

  • Palpatine

    Can you blame him?

  • Palpatine

    Wow, and I thought Jack was the hipster of the two.

  • netcrave

    Blame? I was simply answering your question.

  • netcrave

    I knew there was a reason I liked him. 😛

  • Palpatine

    I meant can you blame him for not wanting to use a mouse/keyboard to play games.

  • netcrave

    Why would I?

  • Palpatine

    You prefer to use mouse/keyboard? Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • Marvin Falz

    Indeed. If I was an active gamer, I’d prefer mouse and keyboard too. Easier to handle and more keys to control the game.

  • Marvin Falz

    Btw., what is the opposite of hipster called?

  • Palpatine

    Emo?

  • tOmy`

    Good episode, Jack and Rich. Now onto Fallout please!

  • Like Icare

    “Controllers”, and by that I mean hand-held controllers used on consoles, are game-playing devices created essentially for a single form of games – arcade.
    The kind of game where you only use your thumbs.

    The moment you start reaching for more buttons than what your thumbs alone can cover… Keyboards become preferential.
    And as Rich and Jack have explained it – mouse is an arm+hand device, hand-held controller is a thumb device.
    For speed, precision, endurance, price… keyboard+mouse is unbeatable.

    Disregarding the games like Dance Dance Revolution or Boong-Ga Boong-Ga which need special controllers or interfaces, there are about two major exceptions to that keyboard+mouse rule. Or would that be reign?

    Driving and flying simulations.
    If your game has flying vehicles, a joystick will give you an advantage which borders on unfair.
    Particularly in games like Battlefield series where vehicles are not obligatory or the main focus of the game. But when you get that sweet bomber and can do loops and rolls around enemy fighters…

    Similarly a wheel + footpads will give you advantage in a racing game.

    For a shooter or an RTS though – keyboard+mouse rules, while it is more than adequate in almost all other forms of games.
    Except maybe one… Games that can be played on the same screen with more than two players at the same time.
    Cause you mostly don’t see PCs with more than one keyboard plugged in at the same time. Although you could, with USB keyboards.

    Though, if you ever do see a PC game needing more than just one keyboard+mouse combo in order to be played, it will probably signal the return of the elder squid-gods from the realms beyond this one.

  • tOmy`

    This was like an Amazon customer review of a product. And I am okay with that.

    I am glad they didn’t tell any jokes, because thanks to that, Jack’s inability to bind buttons under 4 hours stood out as a pinnacle of comedy.

    How is easy accessibility with a wide range of third party games that any mid level laptop can use, with the ease of downloading installation with digital shops

    This giving a customers an easier, cheaper, and more varied gaming, than those cumbersome limited expensive consoles

    I left the console wars, just so I can download quick indie games from laptop, that when you think about it, it’s just a bonus for owning a PC that can do other stuff.

    I mean Steam did help break down barriers for gaming for me, and other nonpro hardcore players.

    Maybe Steam should have just made their own standard 16 button wireless controller, I barely use a mouse with my PC games anyway

    Could Rich Evans the next Steve Jobs which his simple concept of…. a board?

  • Percy Gryce

    Trigger warning: Jack may accidentally touch your flappers.

  • Adzl33t

    If they made games exclusive for their new controller, than their no better than those greedy console companies to me

  • Marvin Falz

    So the Steam controller is built to replace mouse and keyboard for PC games?

  • tOmy`

    One of my friends used to play under “Mingeflaps” nickname.

    Since then, anytime someone mentions “flaps”, I start giggling.

  • Marvin Falz

  • Adzl33t

    Im talking about you dismissing Steam overall, not the controller, I barely use a mouse with my PC games

  • Adzl33t

    Oh is this some pun thing…. meh

  • Marvin Falz

    Originally it was.

  • Marvin Falz

    Ah, okay. I was talking about the controller. I never was skillful enough to be good with the console controllers. But I’d like to know if it was a nice experience to play Morrowind with a console controller. I’m not going to buy an X-Box just to play Morrowind.

  • Percy Gryce

    Rich Evans never fails to amaze. He knew, without looking, that there are 17 keys on the number pad. And he made me hungry for chunks of potato with a nice sauce (spork not included).

    What can’t he do?

  • Cognitive Schizo

    Mouse/Keyboard for FPS & every MMO. Controller for everything else.

  • Adzl33t

    I don’t play much triple A games, especially some that won’t work on my simple laptop, though I can Borderlands 2, by lowering the quality

  • Percy Gryce

    Rich Evans got bored and took a dump? Am I hearing that right?

  • Marvin Falz

    Rich is great in his own way.

  • Like Icare

    You don’t play many shooters or RTS games, right?

  • Percy Gryce

    *in every way.

    FIFY.

  • Marvin Falz

    I don’t even qualify for being called a gamer, since Morrowind was the last extensive game I’ve played. Still play it now and then. I don’t know why, I like to keep in touch with gaming albeit on a rather superficial level. Without their connection to RLM, I probably wouldn’t know PreRec. I enjoy the PreRec streams.

  • Marvin Falz

    There’s definitely something charismatic about this man.

  • Like Icare

    I actually don’t.
    It might be the timing (start of school year) or the fact that from an early age I gave very little fuck about sports.
    I remember reading that at the time some schoolgirl in Seoul that was interviewed about the whole thing asked if Pierre de Coubertin will be coming to the opening.

    I’m sad this Steam controller wasn’t built by NASA.

Don’t give a fuck about sports events.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Most FPS now are made with the consoles in mind, and PC gets a (many times lousy) port later.

    Don’t get me started on how you could have 10 weapons on old PC shooters, but now the arsenal is “limited”, because cycling through weapons in a controller isn’t just a press of a button away. Sure, they spin it saying that IRL you wouldn’t be able to carry so many weapons at once, so the new way is more “realistic”, or whatever.

    There must be a reason many test have been done with having PC players play against console players, and PC players always seem to come on top. I don’t think cross-servers with PC and console players have ever worked because of the considerable advantage PC players have.

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Pre-Rec has Rich Evans. That’s something.

    This is something I don’t understand. This is how to set up an XBox controller for Diablo 3 on PC.

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/12188429161

    I mean, I only play 20 games or so on PC, but is the Steam controller easier/harder to set up than another controller? How does this Steam controller setup work with multiple game types? Can I even do this for all my games with this new controller? I understand that they ‘said’ they did the footwork and tried it on different games, but how long did it take to set up for each game? Is it worth the work? Why didn’t you show this?

    It would have been nice to actually watch Jack and Rich go through this process instead of placing sporks all over the screen so I can determine if this is worth buying. It would have been nice to see, physically see, them using this controller in a FPS or other game type instead of them just telling us so I can make an informed decision.

    I appreciate them explaining the handling issues with the controller, but setting up is important to me, too, and not seeing them go through that process kinda sucks. It would have been appreciated to see the compromises in action, rather than just being told about it.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    They’re just not coordinated enough, or have enough patience to figure out how to use it properly, so naturally the STEAM controller sucks…

  • How dare you post constructive criticism here? This place is reserved for sarcasm only.

  • RLMkeepitup

    Their twitch stream of the controller was kind of a first impression and configuration looked like a pain in the ass but basically the same as any other controller just more options (they could have showed these) and I agree some footage of them using it on a couple games seems missing here.

  • Jacob Russell

    Boogie2988 gave the steam controller about the same review you guys gave it, but then got SteamLink and said the experience was much better. He went so far as to say he felt bad about his early negative review. I haven’t tried the steam controller yet, but thought I would pass along his take on it just FYI.

  • I’ve been having a lot of fun with the Steam controller, but it didnt start out this way. I pre-ordered it and when it arrived I had a difficult time getting it to work properly. I got it to mostly work with Minecraft but it was extremely quirky. I didnt really begin to understand how to use it until Fallout 4 forced me to. I’m a reasonably intelligent guy, and I can attest to it being user unfriendly. I’m glad I stuck with it though, because something clicked and now I’m having a blast configuring the controller, especially with games that dont officially support it. It’s fun to create mind-bogglingly complex configurations, especially for games like Civ and SimCity, where 100% mouse accuracy isnt required and there are tons of keyboard shortcuts you can bind to the buttons. In those instances it really is better than M&K, you can actually streamline your input to the game and play it faster. For pure shooters though.. It’s good enough for me but I never expected it to exceed M&K, only for it to be good enough. Is it more fun to screw around with the configuration than to actually play games with it? It definitely is going to appeal to tinkerers, not to those looking for accuracy and certainly not if you are expecting something overall better than M&K.

    I get that Pre-rec is the “worst” show of the bunch, and for some people unwatchable, but I’m fine with its existence, mainly because there *has* to be a worst show, and if this wasn’t it, it’d be HitB (I consider Plinkett reviews a show, and I think BOTW is better than HitB). I’d rather have something less interesting than HitB be worst because that means that I’m still getting new content from RLM and not burning myself out on HitB, which if that and BOTW was all I was getting, I’d tire of HitB a lot.

    Pre-rec is like the half-time show of a sports event. Or maybe not, I’d have no way of knowing because I don’t watch sports.

    Can anyone explain to me the existence of the Steam controller? As in, what issues was it supposed deal with? I only play games with mouse and keyboard and at that mostly ones that you can stare at and think for two hours before making a move. Also mobile games that you can play with one finger, as most of the others are firmly placed in my ass most of the time.

    I just don’t see it being all that helpful with stuff that wasn’t made with such interface in mind.

    2D platformers are better on controllers. That’s pretty much the only genre that is any good.

    Besides that, I use my index and middle fingers pretty often when playing controller games. Z button on an N64 is middle finger, and on an Xbox 360 controller I tend to use my index finger for the face buttons and my middle finger for the right bumper, and my ring finger for the right trigger.

    On another note, Undertale looks bad to me. Very bad.

  • Like Icare

    I’m asking cause… it’s really weird to me. Or maybe fascinating is a better word. Cause it is SO similar to my experience but completely different.
    My first computer was a C64 too. Not quite 30 years ago, but I didn’t get one until I was in my teens so…
    And I never got into Wizardry series as I was too enamored by that other Sir-Tech game – Jagged Alliance. Talking about start to finish too many times to count.

    But my love was always really for the strategy games.
    Though I’m no fun to play with nor is it fun for me to play them with others as I like to play them as basically giant tower defense games.
    Getting to really know something like C&C Generals and then play several computers on hard… well… stuff like that relaxes me.

    On the other hand I like to play shooters where gameplay demands teamwork. I find deathmatch games boring and ultimately meaningless. There’s basically no goal or a sense of accomplishment there for me.

    Same goes for MMOs. PvP is boring exploiting of flaws in the game balance to me – but both grinding to that next level or working as a member of a team are fun.

    But when it comes to consoles… Deep down it is either graphics OR a specific game that will lure me in.
    Like how Berserk and Ghost in the Shell titles caused the purchase of PS2.
    And in both cases – I didn’t care much for the gameplay. It was the story.

    I don’t know… maybe it’s the fact that my hand-eye coordination isn’t the greatest or that I simply like more relaxing gameplay. The kind you can do from a comfy chair instead of from the edge of a couch.

    Aaaannd… there’s that precision thing.
    Designing a game for a high-precision controller like keyboard+mouse and for a thumb-based controller like all the console ones… it leeches into the game itself.
    And the game becomes… either extremely hard to play or shiny but stupid.

    I’m not saying one can’t use other fingers on modern controllers.
    Just that those controllers are coming from the world where your hands primarily HOLD the controller while most of the interaction with the game is done with thumbs.
    You almost can’t play those games without using thumbs.

    And that affects the logic and philosophy of the development of the game.

    Just like the fact that keyboard+mouse means that you are mostly not holding to the controllers.
    Ergo, no “special effects” like force feedback on those devices.
    Just imagine the joy of feeling recoil in your mouse. Or dig through a local yard sale and look for one of these:

  • Strong_Bow

    I remember listening to one of the Pre-Rec streams one Sunday (probably a year ago), and Jack brought up James Rolfe. He was like, ‘Rich, did you ever hear of this James Rolfe guy?, like he reviews video games?’ Then he went on the to say something to the effect that, ‘I don’t really find him appealing’, and ‘he misses the mark’. It’s like, I’ve watched all the AVGN stuff to death and I’m pretty ‘meh’ when it comes to James Rolfe and his current direction, but for Jack to be bashing JR after seeing his output (courtesy of RLM) makes me really, really, really indifferent to Pre-Rec.

  • tOmy`

    Jack & Rich have a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong way to go to even be considered as part of the review / let’s play community*. I assume they don’t even want to go on that particular path and there is nothing wrong with stating your opinion about other’s people work, but it does make them sound a tiny bit cocky.

    Although I am not even sure whether they see themselves as actual reviewers. For me, they are just an extension of RLM content.

  • RLMkeepitup

    is it fun? I probably can’t run it myself.

  • tOmy`

    It is pretty freaking entertaining.

    It is hard to judge about how good the end product’s gonna be right now, but even in the pre-alpha stage, this game has already tons of content, possibilities, growing scene, tournaments and a big mappool. Most of the things are already polished enough for the game to be more than playable and enjoyable.

    The time will tell, but it seems like the idea of community and top players working together with the developers is paying off big time.

  • OOOOH! LOW BLOW…. Strong_Bow!

    Just expressing my opinion YOU DAMN DIRTY JAP!

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Overwatch, I was under the impression it was going to be a First Person MOBA, but this thing where you can switch to a different character mid-game seems very confusing to me.

  • tOmy`

    It is the current standard for similar games, nope?

    TF2 and every CoD / BF game had that option.

  • Strong_Bow

    1) I’m not a Princess and 2) I may be Jewish but only through my father’s side, so technically I’m not a JAP. Saying FAG would be more accurate.

  • Jewish my but, YOU’RE A JAP!

  • Yea but let’s go after the real crooks and frauds like Sandler and Stoklasa

  • Hank_Henshaw

    Not big on multiplayer FPS. Last one I devoted considerable time to was Quake Arena, back in the Clinton administration.

  • Domo

    Why not that bastard, George Lucas, though?

    Look what he did to your faaaace!!!

  • Domo

    I feel the need to inject something to understand Pre-Rec sometimes, too 🙂

  • Better than an alcoholic SNL looser and better than a fruit from Oranges: Revenge of the Eggplants.

    #teamlucas

  • Strong_Bow

    Goddam Superman; always sticking that big Asia-Minor nose in places he shouldn’t.

  • Domo

    Yeah, George did make Howard the Duck.

    There’s hope for him yet!

  • JJ Abrams will save that franchise to!

  • tOmy`

    Well, just like UT, Quake is an arena shooter – those games are based on entirely different concept than other multiplayer shooters – they don’t feature classes, as their primary goal is to have no handicaps and working with what you find. CS:GO is a different beast as well.

    Classes, perks and loudouts are however the most common thing around these days.

  • fred

    THX 1138. It’s okay to be colorblind.

  • tOmy`

    Oh my god, Mythbusters proved that lightsabers are flawed concept.

  • fred

    I did not know they were capable of proving anything.

  • bassbait

    my definition of gamer is “someone who naively thinks that playing video games is an important piece of their identity”.

    I don’t consider myself a gamer. I play video games on a regular basis and I do keep up to date with current developments, but I only play games from a minimum of 10 years ago, and I keep up to date with current developments only to see how far the gaming industry can kill itself to cater to the people who I consider “gamers”. And for that matter? to exploit them too.

  • tOmy`

    No, they are busting it.

  • fred

    How could they do that, when the crystal technology which powers lightsabers is from a fictional galaxy?

  • Trask

    The same way they do everything else, just blow some shit up.

  • tOmy`

    I buy that crystal technology powering them, but is the Force telling photons to stop moving?

    I DEMAND ANSWERS, JJ!

  • tOmy`

    Have you seen the world lately? Blowing shit up is the new black.

  • Palpatine

    Yay, we’re talking about Star Wars again!

  • Earth

    I show friends that video to introduce them to RLM.

  • Earth

    I heard good things about The Martian at least. That was Ridley Scott right?

  • bassbait

    anybody else hate seeing pics of themselves so much that they will outright avoid everybody they know in order to avoid being shown pics of themselves?

  • bassbait

    when are they going to fucking learn that I don’t want to see that shit

  • Palpatine

    What?

  • bassbait

    I’m just crazy don’t mind me

  • Trask

    You do realise this is redlettermedia right? So it is more an educated guess than a question.

  • bassbait

    I heard dat

  • tOmy`

    Absolutely. It’s not the only, but it is far superior.

    Just the number of available keys is a massive advantage for proper MP FPS gaming.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Right now Disney will not show The Force Awakens early to anyone in order to prevent spoilers or some other shit.

  • Palpatine

    I approve.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I do too but will they screen for critics?

  • tOmy`

    We are the critics.

    (Also I am pretty sure at least two people already saw it.)

  • LukasH

    What, not even to me? This is some bullshit right here.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    One of them died though.

  • Palpatine

    Probably. They should let Mike and Jay see it first.

  • tOmy`

    What? It was that bad?

    #HighwayToHell

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Dude, the man died of cancer and died like last week. To quote that guy from Robot Jox “I’ll see you in hell!”

  • tOmy`

    Yea, I obviously heard about that, I read 9gag. Or watch 9gag… or, especially lately, witness 9gag.

    It was an awful joke.

    And I assume that kind of awful that Mike would go with.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Please stop referencing 9gag for goodness’ sake.

  • Please, you’re making me gag.

  • tOmy`
  • tOmy`

    You are just bitter because you got friendzoned, you pumpkin latte cosplayer!

    *gif*

  • Wizard Phoenix

    That’s the worst joke since “You’re listening to the music”

  • Wizard Phoenix

    They might for me since I’m a pumpkin.

  • Palpatine

    I don’t get it, is supposed for a guy or a girl?

  • Both.

  • Palpatine

    News flash, Halloween’s over!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I’ve been cursed.

  • Palpatine

    You can’t change your profile picture?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I might be able to but I’ve been cursed ever since I did an unholy thing.

  • Trask

    You didn’t check if she was 18?

  • Palpatine

    What was the unholy thing?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I watched the Entourage movie.

  • Palpatine

    What?! Oh no, I’ve never seen it.

  • tOmy`

    Check out comments for “captain obvious”.

    He knows wazzap.

  • tOmy`

    How was it? I have this sort of a morbid curiosity, as I made it through the whole goddamn show.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    It was pretty fucking terrible. So much so it made me question why I ever liked the show.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Do not watch it.

  • Palpatine

    You mean you?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Oh by the way Ronda Rousey’s career is now dead. Hooray, now she won’t be a superhero!

  • dollar store cashier wife

    cancerous memes

    we I suppose it fits here

  • tOmy`

    Well, the show got pretty terrible towards the end as well.

    That last episode was utter shit.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Truly you gotta keep such an unique and inspired plot that has yet another death star under wraps. Oh wait…

  • dollar store cashier wife

    no but she might star in Haywire 2

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Did Soderberg quit making movies?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    he said he will. three movies ago.

  • tOmy`

    Wooohooo, France is bombing the fuck out of people! The peace is imminent!

    Back to Star Wars.

  • Palpatine

    Wait, the French didn’t surrender?! What kind of madness is this?!

  • tOmy`

    They just figured out that you frauds won’t be helpful this time around.

  • Palpatine

    Yeah, they should really sit down and talk it over with ISIS, that’ll totally work.

  • RLMkeepitup

    kudos to them for helping themselves first

  • tOmy`

    I ain’t saying that. Although this should have been preventable in the first place.

    But so far it was like a pissing contest between Russia and US about who will fuck up more. I really hope we can join as well, we did such a good job last time, we even got few of our soldiers court-martialed.

  • Palpatine

    Whatever, Obama’s pretty much given up on this war, so mine as well let the other countries fuck the Middle East up even more.

    Now back to Pre-Rec!

  • Snake Squeezer

    Dumb humans never learn

  • Palpatine

    Does anyone else feel that Pre-Rec’s style of humor is too politically correct for RLM?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Yes, let’s move on and go back to terrorism…in fiction.

  • tOmy`

    I know you are quickly trying to move on to a different topic, but how would you make a review of a piece of hardware less PC?

    Although there might be a way in if those controllers are manufactured by starving kids in Cambodia, Africa.

  • More Paris?

    I meant Tom Paris from Voyager. Dodged a bullet.

  • Palpatine

    Exactly.

  • Palpatine

    No, I think he meant Paris Hilton. She got stepped on by the Increible Hulk in Disaster Movie.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Goddamn Isis…who is Catwoman’s cat.

  • tOmy`

    It’s funny because we all know her! She is a successful DJ!

    No, really. But I am not really sure why.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    *Mike laugh*

  • Marvin Falz

    Which btw. doesn’t mean, that I’m advocating menacing behavior or attitudes.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    there’s humor in PreRec?

  • It’s so bad, it’s good?

  • She could’ve stopped ISIS with free copies of her most famous role.

  • Palpatine
  • Abrams on Starkiller Base: “But what it’s capable of, how it works, and what the threat is, is far greater than what the Death Star could have done. Starkiller Base is another step forward, technologically speaking, in terms of power.”

    I’m calling it right now. This time there literally gonna destroy a star and thus endangering and entire solar system or something. Cuz one measly planet is not enough anymore.

  • bassbait

    “how would you make a review of a piece of hardware less PC?”

    make it about console hardware.

  • bassbait

    I’m really not sure at this point what “politically correct” is even supposed to mean.

  • Palpatine

    To me, it’s the opposite of dark humor, which RLM is known for.

  • bassbait

    if that’s your definition then… idk. I think it might just be that Rich and Jack are less cynical about games than Mike and Jay are about movies, which seems reasonable – big budget games still sometimes care about their audience, and small budget games are able to get mainstream appeal while being innovative or at least interesting. Gaming is in a better state than movies so the dark humor doesn’t really need to be there. That said I prefer the dark humor stuff, but I’m fine with pre-rec how it is, because it doesn’t matter how they make the show, it just won’t get me as excited as HitB or BOTW.

  • tOmy`

    I don’t think dark humor is necessarily connected to not being PC.

    PC is more about knowing what to say, how to say it and when not to use it.

    “PC is a term primarily used as a pejorative to describe language, actions, or policies intended not to offend or disadvantage any particular group of people in society; in pejorative usage, the people using generally imply that they see these policies as excessive.”

    Jokes about Holocaust could be politically correct. Holocaust denying not so much. And that also makes you look like a cunt.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    All you need to a be successful DJ nowdays is to be attractive.

    I suggest doing some research on how many models turned into DJ…I did

    “cocks shotgun”

  • dollar store cashier wife

    “Rich and Jack are less cynical”

    wha now? Have we been watching a different show?

  • tOmy`

    That goes without saying. The problem is that the concept of “DJ” is widely misunderstood and the lines “blurred”. Now everyone with an USB stick can be a DJ.

  • bassbait

    Rich and Jack come across as more enthusiastic. Mike especially comes across as fucking sick of movies. I definitely think overall Rich and Jack are less cynical.

  • Palpatine

    Mario!!!!

  • Wizard Phoenix
  • tOmy`
  • Leave Admiral Ackbar alone! JUST LEAVE HIM ALONE!!!11

  • bassbait

    I don’t think in terms of PC or not PC, and I don’t see the two as sides even though a lot of people do. I tend to think that as long as someone isn’t being a complete asshole, then it’s fine. RLM are cynical and they’re dark and they can do things that are taboo but I don’t consider them assholes.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    What the shit is that?

  • 51 minutes until the next urine stream. I mean Pre-Rec. Sorry, that was my auto correct, I swear.

  • tOmy`

    Trap.

    Hence the “trap” word.

  • Palpatine

    Jessi would find that hilarious. I miss Jessi. 🙁

  • bassbait

    what are they streaming?

  • bassbait

    I’ve got nothing all day anyways so I guess I’ll watch. You can make me watch a Pre-rec stream but you can’t make me enjoy it!!!

  • Are you a masochist?

  • bassbait

    yes.

  • Well, whatever floats your boat. I’m not judging. 😉

  • Palpatine

    Jack and Jack are playing a game I’ve never heard of? I’m so surprised!

  • Those hipsters are just trying to broaden your horizon. 😉

  • Palpatine

    Rich is a closeted hipster.

    really? I always took him for old fashioned

  • bassbait

    I really think you cunt use that kind of language.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    This video is the prime example. they spent most of it saying they hated the controller.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    “I was out collecting a faggot for the fire and was having a gay time till things got queer and I fell on my fanny. I felt like such a dick.”
    Words are fun.

  • tOmy`

    I don’t wanna call this controller a cynical cash grab, because as some people pointed out here, it ain’t all bad, but I just can’t seem to shake the cringeworthiness that this has been designed by the same group of people that is behind Half Life, Team Fortress, Portal, Counterstrike and Left 4 Dead.

    You just sorta know that these are exactly the people who won’t release their games with consoles in mind.

  • tOmy`

    It’s pretty funny, because the Czech version of “cunt” is like one of the most widely used swear words in our language.

  • RLMkeepitup

    The Literal worst thing in the world is flight sims ported to consoles. WHY!? for the love of Rich WHY???!!!!

  • tOmy`

    Oh yea, I know, but it’s like Sony creating a super-awesome PC gaming rigs. It’s just… odd.

    I don’t even think that their basic engine settings thingie (currently shared by all the games I mentioned) has a choice for switching to a console.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    In australia cunt means friend.

  • Mmm… I thought my analsis was deep. Apparently not. QQ

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Speaking of games I just started playing Fallout 4. Before I say what I have to say I have never been a Fallout fan so I’m not going to fanboy this out and be an idiot saying it’s nearless flawless cause it ain’t. So Fallout 4 is very good, not amazing. I think the reason every stupid fanboy out there that is calling this game near flawless is just in denial that it’s not well amazing. It’s what an internet man called “Phantom Menacing.” YOUR GAME SUCKS GET OVER IT-back to my thoughts. The world is very colorful which is something I like. A violent, colorful world full of mutants, violent deaths, weird towns and people, and implied sex stuff. The voice acting is great. So finally Todd Howard at Bethesda realized the days of having your main character not speaking are over so he decided to finally did it. Congratulations, Todd, it’s too bad BioWare beat you the punch eight years ago. The gun play is nice, customization and crafting is good. The weird people are interesting. Here’s my issue besides the amount of bugs that extremely numerous: it’s not gripping. So for something that’s been said to revolutionize an open world role playing game it kinda did none of that. First off the dialogue tree is annoyingly simple with not enough worlds to help figure what the hell I will say or any thing else but speaking. Again, Todd, BioWare beat you to the punch eight years ago. Also the writing isn’t original or interesting so far. Oh my baby is gone, I’m gonna go find them. Compare this fecal mater to the plot of Skyrim: HOLY SHIT DRAGONS ARE ATTACKING AND ONLY I CAN KILL THEM! I’m all down for simple plots but it has to become less generic and simple as it goes on. And the RPG elements aren’t there as much a role playing game should have. It’s more of a shooter, a fun one but it’s not role playing game. You lied to us, Todd. Whatever it’s very fun but if you want a better open world RPG with a more gripping story and not generic creature design then play Witcher 3. Cause I love Witcher 3 so much I fuck it.

    Till I saw the draft which was of 8459 dollars, I accept that my friend’s brother was like really generating cash in his free time with his PC. . His aunt’s neighbor has done this for only 10 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car .Look here for details.

    Oh, and btw: I am gonna say it yet again, but Skyrim’s main quest story line is pretty shit and downgrade from previous games. While Morrowind is far from flawless when it comes to writing, it is mysterious, captivating, interesting and clever.

  • tOmy`

    So, you know how they promised that the last trailer is the last one? I think they learnt a valuable lesson from F&F’s Torretto family motto: One last ride!

    So one last TV spot featuring new stuff about Fallout 4. I mean ISIS: http://9gag.com/tv/p/a6A1EE/star-wars-the-force-awakens-tv-spot-4?ref=fbp

    MIA’s Paper Planes is a pretty neat party track.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    is this a first draft of your comment? because syntax is a thing.

  • tOmy`

    Speaking of Star Wars, you might find this interesting: So this comes from a guy named Colby Boothman, who is a world class fencer, master of lightsaber duel martial art form (apparently a real thing, huh?) and prodigy of Nick Gillard, who is the stunt coordinator of Star Wars and the inventor of this art:

    [Regarding lightsaber duels and proximity of fighters]

    “Yeah, it’s very, very personal. The original trilogies were at a more traditional distance. In the prequels, Nick brought everything in very tight. And that’s part of what makes the fights so interesting in the prequels, is because they’re very intense. At the same time, they’re so close that you can see the reactions from the actors, and that’s why they trained so long for the prequels. Hayden and Ewan trained every single day for about eight weeks.”

  • Palpatine

    So what he’s saying is this:
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qvc9_GDoWI4

  • You can use it with games that arent on Steam but you do have to launch Steam and run Big Picture mode in the background to edit and select configurations. The controller has a “Desktop Mode” configuration that can be used for anything non-Steam, it works for anything you are running from the desktop – yes, you can use the controller for Autocad, porn surfing, DOSBox, MAME, games you pirated like a filthy criminal, etc. Since you can bind every key on the keyboard to the controller, you can come up with some seriously crazy shit.

    You can save multiple configs for multiple games,and they will all be selectable from within this Desktop category. So, you run big picture mode, select your configuration for whatever game it is you want to play, minimize Big Picture and play your non-Steam game. You can go back to Big Picture mode at any time and tweak your config. I’d rather not have to edit the config using Big Picture mode but it works just fine; there is absolutely no difference in functionality between Steam and non-Steam games.

  • I think it’d be very cool, if the lightsaber fights in the new movies would be very scaled back with lots of tension building before anyone even makes the first move. You know, like in an awesome samurai movie by Kurosawa.

  • hybridm0ments

    Why am I watching this?

  • Palpatine

    That’s a good question.

  • netcrave

    Thanks for the clarification. That you can still use it with any game is great, but the dependence on Steam Big Picture Mode doesn’t sound that great regardless. It would definitely be more attractive if it wouldn’t need that.

  • Crixxxx

    It means casting black people and women in Star Wars movies.

  • Palpatine

    Why does Jack tape his microphone to his shirt?

  • Crixxxx

    They don’t have the clippy kind?

  • Palpatine

    Mike and Jay use that kind on HitB.

  • Look, there’s yet another trailer! This is my favourite one so far.
    https://youtu.be/MnAiUd4_Z8E

  • Maybe he hates his Mike.

  • Marvin Falz

    You know Zatoichi, that blind samurai? I prefer those short fights to every single one of the prequel fights.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    Just saw Attack of the Clones, and aside form the parts with Anakin the movie is actually cool, until the end when there is way to much “entertainment” going on for way too long. The movie needs a good editing job but it still wouldn’t save the movie from itself, but it could be made to be way better..

  • I agree actually. The last time I saw it I raised my voting on IMDB from 3/10 to 5/10.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    It’s so indense.

  • LukasH

    No, Andy, how? HOWWWWW?!!

  • WrongWithYourFace

    I never gave that much thought to the movie before.

  • bassbait

    take it back. Here, the prequels can only be 100% bad. These are the rules, I don’t make them I only complain incessantly when people don’t follow them!!!

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    As much as everyone want’s to believe, the prequels can’t be erased, all that I can think will happen is that they will become edited and re-worked to at least improve on them. I think it’s the art, the artwork and space battles are just undeniably cool, and you can’t argue the art direction is off the hook. I don’t agree with all of the art direction but most of it just can’t be downplayed..

  • bassbait

    tbh I don’t really have an opinion on the prequels seeing how I haven’t watched them in years and don’t have the energy to “hate” anything.

    I’m not really into the look of the prequels in general. The jedi robes for example are really annoying, and I don’t like the environments that the films are set in. The tech in the film isn’t really interesting either.

    It’s because it’s utopian science fiction. I really do not care for utopian science fiction.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    Watch them again, use the magical FF button, most of the scenes are chapters so you can “edit out” the crappy love scenes and other crap, I usually just facepalm and close my eyes, for continuities sake. I can understand not liking the design of the prequels..

  • bassbait

    I feel like there are much more important films for me to watch.

  • WhatPlanetAmIOn

    I’ve just replayed Fallout 2 for, like, a 16th time and you know what?
    Short summaries can go fuck an iceberg. I won’t even think of playing F4 until some modder brings back the good old dialoge list.

  • That first scene in AotC when the ship is flying through the mist in Coruscant is just pure art déco excess. And there are tons of scenes like that, who have an inspired look and feel to them.

  • bassbait

    you posted that while I was in the middle of watching a comprehensive review of every Fallout game in one video (this came out before F4 did). I haven’t played any of the Fallout games but I like the review, and I imagine I’d like 1 or 2 better than the games that came later.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgg_HRiu5no – the video, for reference.

  • No french national colours in the PornHub logo. I am disappoint.

  • WhatPlanetAmIOn

    Well, its not like it’s a very good Fallout game anyway, so no. I won’t play it until there’s be more of a resemblane to an actual RPG, at the very least superficial.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    for what happened below you are all banned. hand over your Lightning Fast VCR Repair shirts right now!

  • bassbait

    and I was one week away from retirement…

  • The Phantom Menace is better than Empire! BAMM!

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    Sorry I used mine when I ran out of toilet paper.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    Citizen Kane being one..

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    dont lie the lightning fast shirts are an urban myth. no one really has one.

  • bassbait

    Nah I saw that. Tbh I can’t remember what *important movies* I still need to see. The Holy Mountain is one of them though.

  • bassbait

    genuine gaming question – why is it that albums get second pressings, movies get re-releases, but games never get re-pressings too? There might be a sincere business/financial reason behind this but I personally would love to see some new cartridges for N64 games or NES games, so that way I don’t have to pay 90 fucking dollars to buy Conker’s Bad Fur Day… instead I would only have to pay 60 dollars!

  • The Holy Mountain is like a bad acid trip.

  • bassbait

    sounds like it’s my kind of movie.

    Funny side note: everybody tells me that my taste in movies/TV shows makes me look like I do a lot of drugs, but I’ve never done any drugs in my life.

  • bassbait

    I get your meaning, but emulation is pretty worthless for older games. Input lag can absolutely kill an experience. I’ve tested it.

  • THM is clearly not my kind of movie. It was interesting to see how fucked up Jodorowsky’s mind is, but I’d never watch it again nor would I watch another one of is movies like El Topo for example.

  • bassbait

    This is precisely what I’m after – I want to see how fucked up someone else’s mind is. I don’t even care about story in movies, I just want the movie to do things that I don’t expect. I want it to be so out of this world that it barely even resembles reality. Anything besides that is too boring for me usually.

  • You should drop some acid. https://youtu.be/uZqv9Uyy_IQ?t=8s

    But seriously, I immensly enjoyed Jodoroswky’s Dune. That was a fascinating watch.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    a lot of old games should be remade in my opinion. but online micro transaction gaming is where the profits at, so that wont happen.

  • bassbait

    I’ve been told that much by several of my friends. But I’ve had no interest in actual drugs. Idk if I can explain why, it just doesn’t seem like my thing.

  • Why do I have the feeling there are reboots and remakes all over the place?

  • bassbait

    there are.

  • No, I can totally understand why. Everyone likes to cross a border every once in a while and see something new.

  • bassbait

    a lot of old games sure, but the *right* old games. Like people saying Super Mario 64 needs a re-make? fuck that. It’s fine how it is. But I’d be totally fine with a remake of a game that had potential but wasn’t fully actualized because of hardware limitations. LSD: The Dream Emulator for example.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    how old are you if you dont mind me asking?

  • bassbait

    21.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    If your ever going to think of doing drugs do it while your young. otherwise enjoy your longer life.

  • bassbait

    my plan was to wait until I was really old and had nothing left to do with my life.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    Tru Dat!

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    They do it’s called “Re-Mastering”

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    thats logical. but honestly good lsd is the most fun i have ever had. but I would have to know you better to recommend it. some people laugh at the spiders some people freak out.

  • bassbait

    This may sound like a non-sequitur but it isn’t – A lot of people think that ADHD isn’t a thing, or that it’s a meaningless term, but it’s actually a pretty interesting topic and I happen to have ADHD, possibly to a more severe degree than most. It causes a lot of insomnia issues, but it also leads to extremely vivid dreams at night, and lots of them. As in, I can have upwards of 10 dreams a night on some nights, and remember all of them in vivid detail, as if I had watched a particularly memorable movie. And because of my memory, I don’t forget about a lot of these dreams for years, and I’ll suddenly have flashbacks to dreams I once had. Oh and the dreams can be fucking weird too. Like so weird that they’re funny in a fucked up, dark humor way.

    When that’s just my average, day-to-day life, you can imagine why I don’t have interest in drugs.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    We had a similar discussion at Omis house. and peoples dreams can get really freaky.
    like I am quite often awake while dreaming. its more annoying than it sounds.

  • When you’re already suffering from an illness/condition you obviously shoudln’t combine that with drugs. But fascinating I never knew that ADHD can cause these kinds of dreams.

  • bassbait

    one time I “saw in the 4th dimension” in a dream, but it was an *artistic rendition*, not actually seeing through the fourth dimension. I also had two dreams in one morning that showed horrific images that, upon awakening, I immediately saw the same images in my room (for example – a creepy blue doll in my closet, but when I woke up, my eyes immediately saw my blue yearbook in the exact same spot as the creepy blue doll). There’s more than that but I could be here all day lol.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    This is against the rules of the place i’m posting to so this post will be deleted by me really soon.

    come to this place, all are welcome and we are all fucked up.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    I really don’t agree but BRAVO!!

  • dollar store cashier wife
  • If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. The prequels are inspiring pieces of filmmaking. There I said it.

  • See? Jorge is a genius after all. https://imgur.com/gallery/uHxS6

    Not really.

  • A lot of old games are actually being or have been remade in recent years. Tomb Raider Anniversary (a full on remake of the first game with modern controls, sound and graphics), Final Fantasy 7, Resident Evil to name a few. There are also the shitty ones that are simply “remasters” of games that came out 2 years ago.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    I actually agree, sometimes things don’t turn out 100% but you just have to go with it..

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    Halo,…of course..

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    Welcome to australia… there is only three of us left.
    Note for stupid people: Both these film Trinitys were filmed in Sydney.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    George Lucas doesn’t have to worry about paying rent next month like a lot of us, so he’s better at that than I am..

  • Eactly like a sudden dirty Sanchez during anilingus.

  • It makes me wonder whether he’s a genius or we’re just idiots.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    I think a little of both…

  • THATS WHAI THEY SUCKED!

  • To all those people that changed their profile pictures on the social networks to the French national flag in the last couple of days: FUCK YOU! I hope IS gets you next.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    I have apologised before for Australia’s involvement… in our defence the Americans gave us a fuck load of cash.

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    LOL!

  • It’s okay. Haven’t we all bent over for American filmmaking money?

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    I did love that the first countrys to light up national monuments in ‘French’ colours all have red white and blue flags.

  • Indeed. And everybody’s acting like 9/11 happened all over again. But what about those 80 people killed in Beirut? Nobody talks about them.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    It got some coverage here because Melbourne has a big Leb population. but i thought the same thing today. then the french bombed syria… how many people did they kill?
    the whole circular spiral of bullshit shits me.

  • Yeah, agreed. Once I read that they bombed Syria I deleted my “Peace for Paris”-tweet, because I thought “Fuck you, Frenchistanians!”

  • LukasH

    You’re mixing up politics with the rest. Look, the reason Beirut attack didn’t get the coverage is because Beirut is the punchline to the “What a violent thing happened here” “joke” for years and years. Tragedy is a tragedy.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    thats why I posted this at Omi’s.

    https://youtu.be/0b_9VQcnQZY

  • Yeah. Havin’ something like this happen in Paris obivously hits very close to home for most Europeans, still everybody needs to calm their tits and see things in moderation.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    I miss the cold war… a least we could pretend we were the good guys back then… sorry. no offence my sexy Czech point Charlie.

  • Yeah, everything got ruined. Even the James Bond franchise ran out of villains.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    I’m watching ‘ The Quaalude of Molest.” on TV. Bond Cosby is patchy at best.

  • Some of the best parts of The Wolf of Wall Street was when they were taking their Quaaludes and everything got slowed down to super slow motion.

  • I prefer Heroes of the Storm.

  • LukasH

    Well, if social media is your metric, don’t check it when World Cup rolls in again. People like simplistic symbolism.

    #NotAllIdiots

  • tOmy`

    Well, GOTY editions, GOG editions, Collector Editions, HD editions, Black Editions… there is a lot of it, but it is mostly digital format.

    Also, people and companies work on new editions as well – Black Mesa, Transport Tycoon Deluxe, Morrowind in HD, new textures, new mods…

    It is absolutely there, it’s just less obnoxious and as I said, it is mostly digital format – it is cheaper to release and sell. And don’t forget, if you have a famous / good / popular series, they are usually all shoved into one box – Half Life Generation, C&C – The First Decade, Mass Effects and so on and so forth.

  • tOmy`

    I don’t see any problem with it – people just want to express their feelings towards a particular incident and support their friends and families.

    Yes, noone changed their profile picture to Indonesian flag – a clusterfuck of fucking Old Testament proportions that everyone sorta forgot about – and people don’t know where Beirut is. Same goes for every other similar accident. But:

    Is it malicious, wrong or somehow ill-conceived to change your profile picture to French flag? Nah. It’s harmless and in its best, it’s just a way to show your support. It’s like marketing for humanity. And don’t forget that with current state of European affairs, it is cool to show support rather than show an urge to murder everyone crossing a boarder right now.

  • tOmy`

    No worries, we got to pretend we are the badies!

  • tOmy`

    Yes. (Unfortunately). This.

    Although a lot of people showed support after Turkey. But no matter how wrong this perception is: Beirut or Istanbul ain’t no Paris. Paris is love, chocolate croissants and moonlit walks around Seine.

    And Illuminati: http://tammybruce.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/louvre.jpg

    But most importantly: Just a city that is not exactly in the middle of a war zone soon to be declared ground zero for nukes.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    let me guess-this was dug up by reddit in an attempt to show the hidden genius of prequels?

  • tOmy`

    Still better than an attempt to show the hidden genius of Matrix sequels by showing their connections to Prequels.

    Fuck, that is a video waiting to happen…

  • tOmy`

    This was an attack on the “good guys”. Beirut definitely sounds like they are the bad guys. And maybe even hate Christmas.

    That’s why.

  • tOmy`

    Sounds like that every song by RATM.

    One would almost assume that they were right.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    I loved you guys in that bill murray movie ‘stripes’.

    Ha, never heard about it before, but it seems interesting.

    Climaxing in Czechoslovakia is the way to go!

    Or the one where they rap.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    have you at least seen ‘Spies like us’?

  • tOmy`

    Is it dubstep or a TV show? If not, then I am afraid I haven’t.

    (Well, I checked IMDB, I think I have, yea.)

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    man the cold war ruined your childhood worse than Jorge.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    remember when half a million people died in the boxing day tsunami? or Kony? or Trump?… oh, wait…

  • tOmy`

    I don’t have much recollection of that. I was born on the exact day when our commie president abdicated.

  • tOmy`

    And soon the history books will ask the question: What was worse, #Kony2012 or #Trump2016?

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    there will be no books. trump will have them all burnt… except the copies of his autobiography.

    And peace! Don’t forget that this particular revolution had a body count of like 5 people.

  • tOmy`

    Well, to be honest, France has a military presence in Syria since like 2012.

    People forget that there are like 80 different countries / factions fighting each other there. It ain’t just World vs. Terrorists.

    But yea, I think bombing the living fuck out of ISIS was a new one for France – at least in this proportion.

  • Now I Get It

    Your Tigger warning made me Pooh in my safe space.

    #whowillstandwithEeyore?

  • Like Icare

    There are several problems actually but in essence it boils down to inadvertently being a dick.

    Others have already mentioned the “But what about X?” problem, where crying for Argentina makes you a dick for NOT crying for some other place.
    What? You don’t care about that other place? You DICK!
    On the other hand if one did cry about everything everywhere, that person would need some serious counseling and medication.
    And maybe a lesson in Buddhism.

    But there’s another aspect to it.
    What happens when you STOP crying for Argentina and hang the photo of your cock on your profile once more?
    Now you’re not only a dick but a hypocritical “summer soldier” fauxctivist dick.

    And then there’s the kind of problems that you might have if you’re living with people who for whatever reason take that as an opportunity to start taking sides – which is basically why I quit Facebook a while back and still haven’t found a reason to return.

    When you’re clenching your teeth not to lash out at a Facebook friend’s acquaintance’s lament about some good old “the whole world being against us” cause of some words he took out of context while cherry picking a rather popular article at the time on account of an anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre, WHILE describing what happened to his cousin in another concentration camp – WHILE completely ignoring repeated mentions of implicit AND explicit fault of the very government and the military leaders OF the very people who were slaughtered… well… you need to take a rest from it all.

    And boy did I pick the right time, as only a few days later all that “victim complex” buildup caused an international incident which involved attempted stoning (rocks not dope) of a foreign head of state.

    Meanwhile, many of those same people who cry for Srebrenica once a year (while mothers and sisters of those still missing have a ceremonial walk through the streets where I live – every 11th of every month) will cheer when local sportsball cheering retards trample an Israeli flag while shouting “Auf Wiedersehen Juden!” during the match with Israel and will proudly change their Facebook status to “I am NOT Charlie” because… well… they were asking for it.

    So… with a choice of coming off as a dick (one way or another) or an asshole… I chose asshole.

  • tOmy`

    I think you are kinda overthinking it. After all, as I said, it’s just like marketing for humanity.

    It is a one click that makes some sort of a “stance” – depends on an individual whether he wants to use this option or not, or what belief does it reflect.

    It’s really just a tool to show support.

  • Commander X

    Watched “The Martian” recently, didn’t care much for it. It came off as “I Motherfucking Love SCIENCE! for the Epic Win: The Motion Picture”, if you know what I mean by “SCIENCE!” like

    “I fucking LOVE science!

    *is handed peer reviewed journal*

    Haha nonono I meant CGI pictures of space with misattributed quotes as captions.”

    and people who enthuse about Tesla even though they couldn’t tell you what the difference between AC and DC is, they just know Tesla was motherbitching epic and awesome because they read some webcomics about him, and so on. Lots of wacky memes combining “science!” with zombies/bacon/sriachia/etc. and so on.

  • fred

    Social network? And whose is? Some ancient deity I don’t know about?

  • Syrophenikan

    Hate to say it, but I couldn’t care less about ANYTHING these guys are talking about, BUT…

    I LOVE EVERY EPISODE!!!!!!!!! Rich and Jack are just a HOOT to watch. So funny. I never miss an episode. Keep up the great work.

  • tOmy`

    One more thing: I think the first time this was introduced was the rainbow flag for the gay pride filter – and that actually made a lot of sense.

    Facebook also stored into database each individual who chose to use the filter option app, therefore creating a big statistical dump that is, obviously, either free to check or not that expensive to buy. I saw a lot of articles that worked with the numbers of people supporting legalization of gay marriage, statistics across the countries etc. I know you can’t take Facebook 100% seriously and true, but I think it was a neat base for some kind of a decision making progress.

  • tOmy`

    Wait, Tesla invented air conditioning and DC comics?

    Or was he just a mere pilot for Air Canada and a skate-clothing enthusiast?

  • The Ghost

    Tesla made Mystery Science Theater AND Back in Black?

  • tOmy`

    The powers of getting his limbs cut?

    My guess is he’s doing a botwwotw as well as an interview, either on his movie or originality in movies in general. They might talk about the DC movie world with MOS 2 because of his Superman comic he’s got going on. Ya never know.

  • LukasH

    Hey, don’t bring my kids into this.

  • LukasH

    Well don’t read XKCD and Oatmeal for sure, but I don’t see a problem with a Sci-Fi movie actually celebrating the Sci part. Would you like very big robots fighting better? I read the book and get what you are saying, there’s an aura of a douchebag who thinks he’s way smarter than he actually is around it, but still, of all things to be annoyed by on the Internet, people pressing “like” on photos of nebulae seems like the least worth the energy.

  • LukasH

    Yes. Maybe this.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    probably next. it’s the RLM way.

  • Snake Squeezer

    That was my biggest problem with it, the new meme-ish lingo. Made him sound like an idiot really. And why was he always so goddam happy? I mean it’s cool that he made the decision not to let adversity get him down, but he was completely alone how many millions of miles away from any other human and didn’t even have food to eat; we definitely should have seen him break down at least a couple times. Maybe he was literally insane. Oh also, the air, did they ever explain how he got enough air to live for 500 days or whatever?

  • Strong_Bow

    I’ll check on eBay for prices on midichlorian counters and get back to you.

    Max is a fan of RLM, just so you know.

    Doesn’t matter he deserves to be punched in the face.

  • Palpatine

    Why, because he said something negative about RLM?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    No because he’s just a douchebag. Getting punched in the face is a cure.

  • Palpatine

    The DVD of E.T. I got at Universal has the guns in it! Fuck yeah!!!

    I like his comicbook videos, I thought Chronicle was OK. Dude’s a character for sure, but I see no reason to hate him.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    RLM disliked him/what he had to say therefore it’s cool to shit on him as if he was Hitler.

    I mean half the people in here shitting on Boyhood never seen it.

  • LukasH

    I said before Boyhood was meh myself. But wouldn’t you know, I sincerely love many films by Linklater. What’s it called? Pinionis? Opanyndromes? Apeonions?

  • dollar store cashier wife

  • LukasH

    I was promised to get few more by many people on the Internet. Tis a silly place.

  • Palpatine

    The word you’re looking for is “opinions”.

  • LukasH

    Finally a galactic dictator that has vocabulary skills as well.

  • Palpatine

    You’re not allowed to have an opinion that’s different from Mike and Jay’s on here though. That’s like the First Commandment of RLM.

    I dunno, I’ve seen people not agreeing with them on stuff plenty. Not that what you’re saying is not true in many ways.

  • TheManHole

    So only a minuet in and all I want to see now is Romeo and Juliet put inside The Fly teleportation device.

  • bassbait

    They love Fincher, Tarantino, and Nolan, all of which I think are competent film-makers with no real talent for making a movie compelling. Of all of those film-makers, I’ve only liked one film among the bunch and it was Fight Club. Besides that I tend to agree with them on things that I’ve seen, and I don’t tend to bother with most movies that they review anyways.

  • Palpatine

    You don’t like Tarantino’s films? Why?

  • bassbait

    I’ve seen Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill 1 and 2, and part of Death Proof, and the only part of any of those films that was even remotely entertaining for me was the golden watch segment of Pulp Fiction. Here comes the controversial part – I think his dialogue sucks, his characters are boring, his plots are uninteresting, and he lifts his visual style from better movies in a way that just makes me want to go watch those better movies.

  • Palpatine

    I tend to disagree with them on some things.

  • Palpatine

    So the things you don’t like about him are the things everyone else loves about him. Wow.

  • bassbait

    people always get mad at me for not liking Tarantino. It’s funny.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    But does it feature ET interacting with African kids?

  • LukasH

    I get the reasoning. He often outright lifts shots and it can get jarring when you’ve seen the original movies. As far as dialogue, I like his, but that’s like comparing music tastes.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I do too. Inherent Vice anyone?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    yes bby. Inherent Vice all day every day.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    They don’t love Nolan though. Jay in particular has no strong opinions about him.

  • bassbait

    I would never say that Tarantino is as shitty as The Item, but the way that all of the BOTW crew hated The Item because of how obnoxiously written it was? That’s similar to how Tarantino makes me feel. I get irritated when I watch his films because I just can’t take all of his “witty” dialogue.

    *sighs* I need to pee.

  • LukasH

    (opens mouth)

  • bassbait

    you’re right but I was referring to their praise of Dark Knight Rises. I’ve seen Dark Knight and thought it was pretty weak, so I was more trying to highlight that my opinion on Nolan in general is probably more negative than theirs.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I wound’t say that the plot is one of the reasons people go and see a Tarrantino film. Substitute that for his soundtracks or the cast.

  • Domo

    I’m frustrated with Tarantino, but for different reasons. I’m really getting tired of his shtick. He does these long, dramatic buildups and then massive carnage, and he tends to do it a lot.

    In his first 2 films, it didn’t feel forced; the buildups felt more integrated into a better story with enough going on to make them work. Even in Kill Bill 1 and 2, they were great for me. In his later films, they definitely feel forced to me. It’s like going through a haunted house, knowing something scary is coming, and just waiting for something to happen rather than being surprised. To me it can almost be as bad as a jump scare.

  • Its name is Disgracebook. It’s only used for sexting tho.

    Mark Kermode is a critic who got controversy for being early in the game of disliking Tarantino. He said he liked the first two movies and loved Jackie Brown, but Jackie Brown didn’t do as good because Tarantino was starting to mature as a film-maker, and his fans didn’t like that, so Kill Bill was him going back to being immature, and that’s why Kermode doesn’t really like anything after Jackie Brown.

    So I can see why he’d be annoying people now-a-days but I found it kinda annoying from at least Pulp Fiction (which was the first one I saw). My uncle told me that he loved Pulp Fiction when it came out because it was a breath of fresh air for the movie industry at the time, and he said watching it recently was painful because of how poorly it’s aged, and said that it’s not really a good film.

    Why? Because everybody forgot about it.

    So, RLM was mentioned in an overly long “essay” posted at the A.V. Club, the “bland reviews of pop culture” branch-off of the Onion, today, devoted to the premise that the Star Wars prequels were actually good and if you don’t like them then you’re you’re some sort of reverse fanboy.

    The RLM relevant quote here:

    “It has, however, been turned into a meme, based on producer Rick McCallum’s apparently foolish boast that his epic sci-fi/fantasy trilogy features expansive visuals. The refrain may be familiar from snarky comments sections: “It’s so dense. Every single image has so much going on.” This meme comes courtesy of the internet-famous Red Letter Media prequel reviews, which dedicate feature-length amounts of time to nerdsplaining why the prequels aren’t good, and include repeated footage of McCallum’s quote, an indictment via repetitive implication. The idea, not uncommon in film criticism, is that no amount of visual splendor can make up for the lack of a good story. Through snide repetition, Red Letter Media takes this idea a little further, making visual splendor seem almost inherently stupid.

    Weirder still, some fans seem more wrapped up in the Red Letter Media reviews than the movies themselves. The first trilogy has its own set of imperfections, small missteps, awkward lines, and creatures that serve no direct story purpose. But for a lot of fans, most of that stuff, give or take a pile of Ewoks, has been assimilated into a general appreciation; to a devoted fan, the first trilogy’s limitations can seem almost indistinguishable from its delights. The prequel trilogy’s similar mixture of the fantastic, the goofy, and the mundane has obviously not generated a similar affection—and in absence of Star Wars doing what they wanted, some fans banded together around a piece of criticism, trading memes, jokes, and references to those videos rather than the text itself.

    As a critic, this is certainly tantalizing: Imagine, fans who quote reviews more readily than the movies they’re covering! As someone who loves movies, though, it’s terribly depressing to think of Star Wars fans who derive more joy from repeating “it’s so dense” and smug Screenwriting 101 bromides about Phantom Menace lacking a main character than actually, you know, watching Star Wars movies.”

    Nerdsplaining. Seriously.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I thought it was an adaptation of a short story

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    AV club is shit and so are the prequels. I know I have been defending the art direction and some of the cast but they just make watching the prequels bearable every now and again. Watching the prequels is like hanging out with a sick loved one, you do it but it causes anguish..

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I think Tomy will back me up on this but you don’t you read AV Club for the articles. You do it for their comment section which from what I’ve seen can get as crazy as our comfy little hole right here.

    I tried to watch it and I couldn’t. I was drunk and it still left me slack jawed

  • Palpatine

    At least you didn’t get mad at me for liking it.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    The build up is amazingly well crafted though. Personally I’m 100% in agreement with what Mick&Jake said about him-no need for him to grow as an artist and do something different if he can keep up this same level of craftsmanship with his every new “revenge” flick. But I also think it’s redundant to write them all off as “the same movie” . For example the meta commentary on movie violence in Basterds is not smth present in Kill Bill/Death Proof or Django. Every film has enough “meat” of it’s own underneath the surface to not end up just being “tarrantino’s pointless indulgence fest #47”

  • jay (Fragnon) stein

    We all have an asshole, why would I get mad?

  • bassbait

    I don’t get mad at anyone for liking anything or disliking anything. I rarely get mad at all tbh. I’m interested more in people’s opinions than I am in converting people to my own.

    oh GOD.

    Sorry, that was an involuntary reaction. Now to my reply to what that writer said –

    who fucking cares? Get over your *academia* language and say exactly how you feel, or don’t say anything. All of this pretentious, college credit journalism bullshit gets on my nerves after a while. He’s trying to use as many words as he can to say as little as possible. Gotta fill space on an article somehow right? But it’s clear to me that he is trying to look down on RLM fans. It reeks of “didn’t get the joke”.

    TL;DR – this is “The Jar” of articles.

  • tjp77

    A.V. Club as a whole isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. They’re a bunch of humorless contrarian hipster SJWs with a giant stick up their collective asses.

  • bassbait

    oh and for the record, I didn’t dislike the prequels and I don’t have any opinion on them in general. I watch the reviews because they’re on point, funny, and inspiring to me as a film analyst and hopefully, some day, a “comedian” of some kind (just any form of entertainment involving humor). I love the assumption that they made that the prequel reviews are like the bible for prequel haters, and that people who enjoy the reviews and RLM on the whole *must* hate the prequels by association.

    That’s what JK Rowling’s house is made of.

  • bassbait

    alright last mini-rant of mine on the subject –

    he’s looking down on people for appreciating the Plinkett reviews more than “real films”, to which I have to ask – what’s the difference? Why are the plinkett reviews not films in their own right? They’re film length. They’re part fictional storytelling. People like to arbitrarily distinguish “film-making” as only applying to things that end up on the cinema screen, but fucking 5 second vine videos are movies too. There’s such thing as art that is released through the internet, and there is no less value to online works of film-making (reviews as just one example) as there is to cinema film-making or TV film-making. It’s all the same shit, just a different piece of technology to display it with.

  • What’s up with Harrys face scar? What’s his background? What is his story? Is there a smoke monster?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    That’s a real question. Seriously, why know guns? Also if Voldemort also wants to destroy the muggle world too doesn’t he know anything about the modern military?

  • RLMkeepitup

    should I know what AV club is?

  • bassbait

    no

  • No. Go back to sleep. We will wake you when it’s over.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    But Boss Nass didn’t also mention toys.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    No

  • Palpatine

    For starters, they’re wizards, guns are completely foreign to them, and they have other methods of killing each other, so guns serve little purpose. And I’m pretty sure they could use a disarming charm to send the gun flying out of the Muggles hand. And if the Muggle tries to shoot them, the wizard could just use a shield charm for protection, or just Disapperate.

  • Domo

    If only there were more feature length film reviews.

    As someone that doesn’t care about Star Wars at all, I think it kinda sucks that The Force is a bloodline thing. Apparently, from what I’ve read, you can train to become a Force wielder, but people with magic blood have The Force even if they don’t want it. That’s awful.

    I just had to check out the comments when I read that the RLM fandom was mentioned in the AV Club article. We’re kinda-sorta-famous, you guys!
    No, but really, the Star Wars prequels are worth hating. Or, at the very least, we should recognize them as failures and try to avoid such failures in the future. The prequels are a cautionary tale of a man whose hubris far outweighed his actual capabilities, and that man isn’t Anakin.
    I’m really not mad at AV Club, though. I can relate to wanting to be a contrarian asshole when given a good platform on the internet to do so. I’ve probably done just that, several times, on THIS VERY WEBZONE!

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    this commentzone seems to create a lot of external comments on our comments.

  • The Elegant Flaw Filial

    I once read a comment thread under a FilmcriticHulk article where some of the commenters were calling out the RLM fandom for being meme-spewing, obsessive, lurid, nitpicky, vile, cynical-to-a-fault…
    And, yeah, that’s true, but still.
    Hulk smash… my feelings.

  • Palpatine

    But why? We’re just some people commenting on the Internet.

  • Domo

    Yes, it’s so frustrating. I just couldn’t remember it.
    I asked the two NSA agents, who have disguised themselves as bushes out on my lawn, if they could tell me my password, but they insisted that they were just regular bushes and I had no choice but to take them on their word.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

  • The Elegant Flaw Filial

    I think that (AND I’M AN IDIOT WHO DOESN’T KNOW THINGS, SO TAKE WHAT I SAY WITH A GRAIN OF SALT!) the internet creates a “reality-bubble” that allows you to warp reality into your own personal views rather than adjusting your personal views into reality. I’m obviously as guilty of this as anybody… my google searches are FILLED with confirmation bias.
    South Park seems to be doing its part to burst that bubble and I can’t help but admire them for that.

  • Bubs

    This review…. exists.

    That being said, here’s a criticism about gamers from a Game Designer’s perspective. Simply put, we hate gamers like Jack, and we love gamers like Rich. There are very few casual gamers in the games industry (the number of casual gamers increases, unsurprisingly, as you get closer to the top of the chain of command).

    So we relate to people like Rich; people who use information from previous games to solve issues in current games. This is also why we hate dislike people like Jack, who come into every game as if its their first time playing a video game, regardless of how many they’ve played previously. Jack-style gamers are the reason that every modern game has to have a 75-minute long tutorial explaining how to jump, or a 500-page “Help” in-game menu. I’ve had to write these. They’re not fun. And playtesters are constantly bombarding you with bugs which say “people will be confused by…”. And when they say ‘people’, they mean the Jacks of the world.

    It’s getting so bad that in-game documentation now has to say “Use [button] at this exact moment while facing [the object to interact with].” I expect in the future, documentation will say “Flex the muscles in your right fore-arm to trigger the tensor muscles in your thumb, this will allow you to depress the “X” button so you can Pay Your Respects.”

    Now, I recognize that sometimes systems are complex and require in-game documentation (a la Civilization). But sometimes it should be good enough to just say “You can do [thing] in the [place]. Experiment to see all the neat stuff you can do here!”

    Anyway, I haven’t tried the steam controller. But it looks like it sucks.

    The prequel defense league (PDL as I’ll call them) are so strange to me. I can’t imagine why people would feel compelled to defend them unless they can’t reconcile the idea of a *bad* Star Wars film, let alone 3. Just own up to it – the prequels were bad. No reason to defend them. They look like shit, they were boring as hell even just as dumb action movies, and they lack any charm or heart of the original. I can say that without watching any of the prequel reviews, the prequel reviews just go into details as to why those things are the case.

    I moved on from the prequels when I was like 11. There’s a difference between agreeing with the plinkett reviews and having a personal, long running vendetta against a film series that isn’t even worth “hating” so much as just taking note of why they were weak.

    “The “Fast and Furious” franchise may take a page from “Star Wars” and Marvel. Producer and star Vin Diesel tells Variety that the team behind the fast cars and criminals series is in the preliminary stages of developing prequels and spinoffs.

    “We’ve written out story lines for various characters,” said Diesel. “We’ve been playing with it for a long time. It’s a very rich property and we’re committed to treating it with a lot of class.”

    The actor did not say which characters would get their own standalone films, but in the past,Dwayne Johnson has hinted that he’d like to see his character, Diplomatic Security Service agent Luke Hobbs, branch out into independent adventures.”

    So let’s talk about everyone’s favorite whipping boy. The Star Wars prequels.

    To me, the most awkward dialogue in cinema history will forever be the following. Nothing in “The Room” even comes close.

    Anakin: “You’re so beautiful…”
    Padme: “It’s only because I’m so in love.”
    Anakin: “No… no, it’s because I’m so in love with you.”
    Padme: *Looks legitimately concerned* “So love has blinded you?
    Anakin: “Well… that’s not exactly what I meant.”
    Padme: “But it’s probably true.”
    Anakin: *Laughs*
    Padme: “I’ve been fucking Obi Wan for months.”

    I may have embellished a bit. But can we have a serious conversation about this scene? In what universe is this how people talk to each other? How exactly did this scene get filmed without everyone on set busting out into laughter? Was this just a horribly cobbled together bit of editing from a much deeper/better scene? (Nope.)

    There was a lot of good bits throughout. I liked the Django ’66/Keoma-esque songs describing the events of the story. But then at other times the music was either jarring and straight up out of place, like the brief bursts of rap music where they weren’t needed (the end shootout), or were combating the rest of the soundscape, making the film sound cacophonous.

    Yep, I guess he is part of the RLM Expanded Universe now. That is, until Disney buys RLM, and the EU gets the axe.

  • Palpatine

    He has that haircut that I can’t stand.

  • bassbait

    based on looks alone, he has that *everything* that I can’t stand.

  • At least Oldman is a great actor. BAM.

  • bassbait

    I could go on a whole rant about that kind of haircut lol. It’s the new mullet – business on one side, douchebag on the other. And guess what? Both sides are the douchebag.

  • Apparently Ryan Gosling is to star alongside Harrison “Part Time” Ford in the Blade Runner sequel.

    Also, fuck Star Wars. All day I’ve been hearing on the radio is The Hunger Games mega-marathon in cinemas. Jeniffer Lawrence is where it’s at, apparently.

  • bassbait

    the sequel everyone was waiting for.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Just because Ryan Gosling has been standing in neon lights a lot in recent years.

  • Strong_Bow

    Whaaaaaat?

  • So, is he going to be the silent type rookie or an android grampa Ford needs to take down?

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Honestly, he would be fine in either role.

  • You probably have to ask Ridley. And ask him why he’s making another Alien while you’re at it.

  • RLMkeepitup

    jack got more immersed in 1985 mario than call of duty super warfare. his views are experimental

  • RLMkeepitup

    That guy sure likes to tweet

  • dollar store cashier wife

    he’s not even bothering directing it himself.

  • Which? Alien or Blade Runner?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    BR.

  • LukasH

    I am way more surprised that Ford is in.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Well, he’d also “love to do another Indiana Jones”.

  • LukasH

    It’s gonna be pretty awkward when someone tells him he’s not 35 anymore.

  • I’m jonesing for new content. It’s been almost two weeks since the last video. It goes without saying that Pre-Rec doesn’t count. This particular episode was awful even if I’d probably agree with them on how terrible the Steam Controller is.

  • Trask

    Whaaat? You don’t like Rich and Jack saying the same thing over and over for 20 minutes?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I am the only one hear that thinks Screen Junkies Plus sounds like a scam? Because it sounds like a scam.

  • Snake Squeezer

    The thing that really surprises me is that the director of Prisoners and Sicario is set to direct this fiasco. Well, I guess everybody is allowed one good pay day…

  • Wizard Phoenix

    But Jennifer Lawrence to my knowledge doesn’t take her clothes off in those movies. And all she does is fight Storm Troopers dressed up as Green Arrow as the Avengers.

  • Snake Squeezer

    “It’s unprovable!”

  • Palpatine

    Your buddy Max Landis is confirmed to be on RLM:
    https://mobile.twitter.com/Uptomyknees/status/666488531427172352

  • Wizard Phoenix

    I don’t care to be honest. Now answer my question.

  • Palpatine

    What question?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    The Screen Junkies scam one above the one Adam Landis one.

  • Snake Squeezer

    Lucas is writing for the AV Club now?

  • WrongWithYourFace

    What’s Screen Scamkies Puls?

  • Palpatine

    I guess. I don’t know anything about Screen Junkies.

  • It has a few good things I guess but not worth the price. But they gotto make a livin so I understand the exclusive content.

    “elitistbasterds

  • Earth

    In the end, all Youtubers become hackfraud sellouts. At least RLM are honest about it.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Mundy Night Raw was fucking awful and hard to sit through.

  • Was it loud or hyper? That is what screenjunkies are to me.

  • Snake Squeezer

    It’s called vaseline.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Mundy hates everything, that’s what it was. He only gives a shit about Die Hard and hates everything else.

  • Palpatine

    So it’s like that Nerd News video RLM did.

  • Snake Squeezer

    Well, I’ve seen her naked.

  • Palpatine

    So he’s Pa?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Yeah basically.

  • Palpatine

    Shut up you neeeerd!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    We all have. The girl on fire? More like The Girl Who’s Allergic to Clothes.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    No, Pa isn’t close to a heart attack.

  • Took a peak on youtube. He should have a writer so he knows what to say and have a pacing.I feels like early Conan, I like a lot from early Conan but clearly he gets lost in many shows and does just say random things and becomes annoying.

    Hey atleast it does not have a vibrating parrot.

  • WrongWithYourFace

    Oh. I don’t really know or care but a lot of those shows sound very forced. I guess some fans would be interested. I’m not detecting any imminent scams.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    What if he dies in the middle of an episode and they cut to black and come back and it’s a new person?

  • Satire. Yum yum. But I would watch RLM discussions. Like Jay when he’s on Pre Rec and just talks. But shove a camera in his face and ask him to talk and the magic is gone. It’s a fine line.

    But then again it’s going to get of topic and then it’s a RLM commentary track.

  • Snake Squeezer

    She likes snakes though

  • Palpatine

    I’m guessing he’s really fat.

  • Who dies?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Nick Mundy because he’s so fat. THAT’S A JOKE YOU FAT FUCK!

  • My car’o’meeter is at zero but I enjoyed some Honest Trailers back in the day but that was two years ago and that’s like 200 years in Internetyears.

  • Adam Unger

    I love you guys. I tune into to all RLM vids. But the audio quality in this one is near unacceptable. What happened?

  • He robbed a homeless person and took his clothes just like TAFT! THAT FAT F***!

  • Snake Squeezer

    “His father had it. I have it. And, my sister has it…”

  • Great taste and claws?

  • dollar store cashier wife

    He’s what gives me what hope about this project though. If you’d break down Prisoners or Enemy-the screenplay is the weakest aspect of those films. With Incendies&Polytechnique had good scripts it sticks out even more there on how Villeneuve thrives in making these slow burn,deeply atmospheric cinematic thrillers. Depending on how much creative freedom he’ll get there might be redemption for this film.

  • Snake Squeezer

    Unacceptable? Who are you, Bob Ludwig?

  • RLMkeepitup

    love you too xoxo

  • Snake Squeezer

    Yes, he’s incredible. But he doesn’t seem to be having any problems getting his own films made, and Sicario will probably get some kind of Oscar nod(s). Just feels like he’s lowering himself. Why?

  • Snake Squeezer
  • Wizard Phoenix

    Imagine a Christmas movie starring Rich Evans

  • Palpatine

    Rich’s Lonely Christmas. It’ll be 90 minutes of Rich Evans watching TV with a crappy looking Christmas Tree in the background.

  • It also features a dream sequence with the Careboars. They all sing Christmas carols and have a joyous time.

  • Palpatine

    And Rich will just stand there with a blank look on his face.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Written by Max Landis

  • Palpatine

    I thought you were going to say “written and directed by Elaine May”. Ha ha ha ha ha, hahahahahaha, HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! I’M SO FUNNY!!!!

  • dollar store cashier wife

    depends on the perspective I guess. when you’ve done nothing but artsy small scale movies doing a huge blockbuster with tons of expectations placed on you can be seen as a challenge.

  • LukasH

    Aaaaaand bombs in Germany. This is fucking terrifying.

    Not gonna buy Steam Controller btw.

  • Is all work and no play making you a dull boy, Palpy?

  • Hey, at least the Polish team is having a blast. I think I may have worded this terribly.

  • LukasH

    I know nothing happened but waaaaaaaaaay too soon.

  • I actually didn’t think of the ambiguity of the wording until I posted it.

  • LukasH

    Damn you, English, and your punability.

  • Palpatine

    No, just the lack of content.

  • Palpatine

    Did they explode?

  • LukasH

    No, they had some intel and were abe to prevent it (so far, hopefully totally). Evacuations and I heard about “bomb trucks” and “ambulance filled with explosives”. Not sure how much is true and how much is a script to a shity thriller someone has in their head.

  • Palpatine

    It’s all a false flag!!! 9/11 was an inside job!!!

  • tOmy`

    There is always this kinda scare after attacks. UK and France had couple of evacuations in the past days as well.

    It’s chilling tho.

  • LukasH

    This is what we need right now.

  • LukasH

    But I am pretty sure they intersected an actual attack this time. Hopefully not.

  • Adam Unger

    Yes. One must be an engineering master to deem things as acceptable or unacceptable. Mouth breather.

  • Probably a false alarm, people are getting paranoid after Paris. We’ve had cops patrolling all over the Underground and announcements about alarm phones play on each station. Welcome paranoia.

  • LukasH

    As in it was not actual.

  • Palpatine

    Another 9/11?

  • Conspiracy theories.

  • LukasH

    I noticed a lotta cops around too, but that was mostly todays demonstrations against everything.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    The want for future content that might feature Max Landis is killing you.

  • Palpatine

    Same thing happened here in the U.S. after 9/11. How do you guys like it, huh?

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Can we not talk about terrorism? Now let’s discuss that episode of Clone Wars with terrorists attacking Mandalore.

  • It’s nowhere near as bad, thankfully. Our cops don’t sport M16s and full on body armor unless shit is really going down. They also don’t comb over people every 10 seconds.

  • LukasH

    It’s not a competition.

  • LukasH

    Jedi scum.

    Probably.

  • Palpatine

    I mean all the paranoia and fear.

  • Ah, it’s glorious. The new right-wing government and our new paranoid full-blown-conspiracy-theory-nut minister of defence don’t make things better. Tell me this isn’t the face of a mad man. http://m.natemat.pl/2a6f982697b8662f8bd04ff1a5630b2e,641,0,0,0.jpg

  • tOmy`

    I remember one article showing that more than 50% of US citizens believe that terrorist attack could likely happen within the next week. In 2014.

    Paranoia is fun.

  • LukasH

    Paranoia indeed is fun. Is..is that a weird shadow or Max Landis?

  • Palpatine

    That’s what it was like here after 9/11. You didn’t want to fly on a plane, you didn’t want to get your mail because of the anthrax attacks happening at the same time, and you didn’t know who to trust.

  • Worse. It’s Jorge Lucas.

  • tOmy`

    Czech Republic took the classic course of action:

    We decided that we will have to do a meeting when we will decide on what to decide on next.

    By 2020, we will have a referendum whether it was a good idea.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Isn’t that a movie with Harrison Ford and a hemsworth?

  • LukasH

    You’ve gone too far!

  • LukasH

    Should be for sure.

  • Wizard Phoenix
  • tOmy`

    The thing is that it was indeed attack on your country. This wasn’t an attack on Europe, just an attack on Paris. And Paris always had these kinds of problems.

    I don’t believe that Brno is next. On the other hand, Prague… DUN DUN DUUUUUUN, Tapey.

  • LukasH

    Oh that Hemsworth.

  • LukasH

    Hey, you didn’t attribute to the naughty thread in Exile. I find that to be an act of pure terror,

  • Precisely what tOmy` said. Poland is not in France. Sure, the borders to open for most travellers with an EU member country passport but the member countries still have independent foreign policies and so on. Furthermore, Warsaw is nowhere near as important as Paris. Still, I imagine people living in Alaska felt way safer and less paranoid than the ones living near ground zero, NJ residents included.

  • tOmy`

    I have such a fun hangover today that I am falling asleep on a chair and trying to calmly sip tea before doing anything drastic, like opening another tab.

  • Wow there, Patsy. Let’s not get crazy, here.

  • LukasH

    Hey, don’t panic and make sudden head movements. But they’re behind you. Waiting.

  • How’s that movie trilogy of yours coming up, Wiz?

  • tOmy`

    Let them come, I spent half of the day begging for the mercy of a swift dead anyway.

    And pizza.

    Bravery in modern America means revealing your irresponsible hedonism to an audience, preferably as an exclusive deal for which you are handsomely paid because you will attract the gawking eyeballs that advertisers crave. Don’t try this at home, though folks; if you think that wallowing in drugs and prostitution, getting AIDS, and then coming clean about it will lead to a life of financial independence like Charlie’s, this only works if you are already famous, you’ve had years of getting slaps on the wrist for all sorts of behavior written off as “Oh, that’s just Charlie Sheen, Partying Wildman!” and there is a titillating value to your sordid fate. WINNING.
    Sorry if that came off as a little intense for an opinion, I’m just finding myself hating this trashworld more and more with each day is all.

    I think RLM did a great job of explaining why Return of the Jedi isn’t actually a very good movie structurally but it doesn’t matter in their recent commentary track.

    Would the prequels be far better received if they were actually made first and we had never seen Episodes 4-6? Sure. But they weren’t, and you can’t play that game.

    This whole episode was crazy good, but I think it says a lot that the thing that finally floored me was Karl dragging a bench.

    Speaking of: Small round of applause for his casual shift between Emmy-reel punch drunk comedy babbling and Emmy-reel nail-biting, nerve-wrecking “showdown” with Bear. He was really phenomenal considering that he stood out this much in midst of so many great performances of this episode.

  • tOmy`

    Speaking of Fargo and AV Club:

    Fargo is only couple of A episodes away from surpassing Justified’s 7 As in row! Clash of the titans, really.

  • LukasH

    Road Warrior is the more entertaining one, but the first one is way more interesting. Just the world that it paints is so much different from anything else that came after.

  • tOmy`

    “No resolution – no plot” is the motto of Australia.

  • tOmy`

  • dollar store cashier wife

    if Nic P still remains the sole screenwriter then cancel the show HBO. It’ll take some phenomenal talent behind and in front of the camera like in season 1 to save the show.

  • Having a hard time getting used to the wall jumping. I’m too old for this shit.

  • tOmy`

    Yea, the article hinted at the possibility of Pizza not being the only writer, possibly dragging in some other TV show writers from different successful series.

    However, what to do next? My money is on either southern border related stuff or cold north, possibly Alaska.

    To make it even more punchy, they should get Kurt Sutter, because his TV show revolution that is Bastard Executioner went from “off to a rocky start” to hitting an F within 8 episodes with a headline: “The Bastard Executioner finally moves from dull to despicable”

    It’s great.

  • tOmy`

    Yea. They wanted to make a middleground between UT 99 and UT 3 – they left the wall jumping in and eliminated double jumping. I am not sure whether this is the final version of movement, as I noticed that “sliding” was heavily changed – including the fact, that my key for it simply doesn’t work.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I’ll take the world building of Fury Road any day thank you very much. I’ll stand by to what I said here once that Mad Max 1 is like a pretentious grindhouse film.

  • When this hits the final version will it still be free to play?

  • LukasH

    Batltle of the Hipsters, coming soon. The battle, not the hipsters.

  • tOmy`

    The was the plan, yes. The idea is that there will be a chance to buy maps / mods from people – in game transactions that will make some money for Epic, but I doubt that’s ever gonna fly, as UT is known for its fanbase creating a ton of stuff per month for free.

    I think they will get a lot of money just from the fact that this game pretty much showcases what Unreal Engine 4 is capable of and people will be able to buy it and us it to create their own games. There is already a lot of stuff around.

  • That’s great. I shall keep my eyes on it. <3

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

  • I’m so sorry. NOT!

  • WrongWithYourFace

    No the endless action is not what you call world building. I actually thought it didn’t have enough of world building. But the little it did have, in the beginning mostly, was fantastic.

  • Agreed. That’s why the movie lost me halfway through. There was nothing for me to care about.

  • Strong_Bow

    ‘Hey Rid; I liked your brother more. Too bad he’s dead. BTW, when are you going go die?’

  • dollar store cashier wife

    They’re not endless but hey if they’re all shot/edited/acted out so wonderfully as the ones in FR I would take just a 2 hour action montage supercut and be a happy camper.

  • I just can’t care for graphics demos anymore.

  • Maybe I’m crazy, but it was actually my favorite movie of the original three. I’m not sure whether or not it was intentional, but I liked that it was essentially the inverse of a standard revenge-movie (lots of time dedicated to building tension and character, very brief burst of violence at the end).

    I’ve always had a thing for slow-burning stories, and I thought it worked well for Mad Max. The pace helped make the atmosphere feel more suffocating and like the world was really decaying in place of the very cheap visuals they had available to them.
    Yeah, it’s a simple plot that could have easily been told in like 15 minutes (or hell, just a sentence), and it probably came out the way it did more due to a fluke of an inexperienced filmmaker than an artistic vision, but I still love it.

    Look on the bright side; it doesn’t just stop at the half-way point to turn into a confusing version of Lord of the Flies.

  • dollar store cashier wife

    Most of it was practical. It also moved the story along. You can dislike the film but dismissing it’s craftsmanship is going to far. I’d wager there is no film this year more impressive on a filmmaking level.

  • I didn’t dismiss the craftsmanship. The movie does look gorgeous for the most part.

  • LukasH

    Whoa, buddy. Whoa. You seen it, right?

  • Palpatine

    Does anyone like to watch the behind-the-scenes stuff of bad movies on the DVD? Because I do. For example, I bought the Jurassic Park trilogy on Blu-Ray while in Universal, and after watching all the movies, I watched the bts stuff, and I was just stunned how much work went into making The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3. When watching a bad movie, I guess you just have to appreciate the little things in it.

    When asked why he thought viewers failed to tune in, Sutter said there were numerous “fucking variables,” including the “glut of period pieces” that are on TV right now. He also suggested that the mythology he created surrounding a man who executes people was perhaps “too dense” for audiences to parse through.

    Actually yes, that’s a good way to put it – I am too good to be a gamer. Remember when “real gamers” were obsessing about “ethics in gaming journalism?” You know, the biggest non-issue to ever inspire an entire movement? That was pretty funny.

  • Oh god. I’m scared.

  • bassbait

    I’d say the “world building” of Fury Road was fine. It just wasn’t hammered into the plot too hard. It reminds me of the world building of something like Half-life 2 – instead of forcing you to get acquainted with the world, it just drops you in and lets you figure out what the world is about through the events of the film. Even though I can see complaints about Fury Road doing that much, ironically, it’s exactly what the first Mad Max did – the start of the film is just police officers, with one of them watching a couple fucking, through his rifle’s scope. It takes a looooong time for there to even really be a “plot” to the first film, because it’s mostly just letting you inhabit the world. Both films start slightly before the events that kick off the plot of the film, it’s just that the plot of Fury Road is more fast moving, though I wouldn’t call either film better than the other. I did prefer Fury Road overall though.

  • bassbait

    I think I was hoping for a bit more action. Like, a bit more to actually drive the revenge plot (no pun intended). I love some good ol’ 70’s “cars getting run off the road” style action and would have been fine with more of it, it would add a bit more menace to the bad guys of the film and it would give more attachment to Max because there would be more tension overall. Mad Max was a very slow burn but almost *too* slow, making his descent into madness at the end a bit out of place with the rest of the movie. Like maybe one or two more engaging action sequences, car crashes and things being broken and all that stuff.

  • Palpatine

    Do you think it’ll be like the whole Batman News thing again?

  • Palpatine

    Dere he is!

  • I though the same thing when I re-watched it. It was surprising how little action there was in what was the granddaddy of many definitive action movies.

    But to be fair, the context of how it was made is important to remember. It was a zero-budget, first feature-length film from a former doctor and a film student; each of whom had only worked together on a single short film almost a decade earlier.

  • CAN’T CAP THE CAT!

    We’ve enjoyed the Steam controller. My husband especially likes it. Ofc neither of us play first-person shooters. We’re more the Civ 5, Sim City type of players and we’ve really had zero problems with it. My husbands one gripe about it would be that it only works through Steam games (no other games, say, bought through GOG or something). We’ve had no problems playing these kinds of games with the controller. I also feel like you didn’t really discuss how a mouse and keyboard gets pretty clunky on the couch. Especially if you’re playing a game that needs accuracy, I feel like you won’t be using anything wireless anyway, you’ll want something hardwired. Lastly, neither of us have hit that backside bumper on accident either! Overall, no regrets (so far!) with our purchase. very happy actually.

    Just saw Road Warrior. So that’s what it’s like in Australia, eh?

    Definitely better than the first film. Possibly better than Fury Road? Idk, it’s hard to decide. Fury Road is far more like a comic book, and Road Warrior has a lot more “realism” to it, with a bit of that over-the-top charm that makes the Mad Max series delightful.

    But if a post-apocalypse were to happen, Road Warrior I think is one of the most accurate representations of what that would look like, and I think that’s what I loved about it. It felt more minimalist. Felt like I was actually there. Fury Road is more of an entertaining spectacle, but Road Warrior feels more immersive. Also, I think Max in general seems smarter in Road Warrior than in Fury Road. For that matter I think Mel Gibson does a better job than Tom Hardy, though maybe the next Mad Max movie will show me otherwise. So far I’m seeing a parallel with Star Wars, where Road Warrior is the Empire Strikes Back of the series, and Beyond Thunderdome is the Return of the Jedi of the series. This means that The Force Awakens may end up being the “Fury Road” of the Star Wars series.

    Next I have to watch Beyond Thunderdome, and I already see the problem with it –

    Me and Rich Evans (and other RLM viewers) just watched Double Down starring Neil Breen…. which is going to be in the next BOTW with Max Landis. Jack and Rich said that Max is a really cool guy and doesn’t have an ego, but he just has a passion for films and comics and will talk forever about them because he loves them.

    Double Down is fucking amazing and it’s also available to watch on youtube. Then we watched a 20 minute interview with the director, and watched a 10 minute video of him talking about crowdfunding.

  • tOmy`

    I imagine Miller sitting at his house, watching Happy Feet 2 and there is that sudden facial expression of understanding…

    He the picks up the phone, calls his office and says: “Susan, get me a bottle of vodka and two tickets to Australia. This shit has gone too far.”

  • bassbait

    and then he asks Susan to keep filling the glass.

  • Where did you watch it together?

  • There’s some sort of Strange Magic at work here.

    after Pre-rec streams, some of the viewers will stick around and watch videos/movies together, and Rich decided to stick around because they were doing Double Down. It was a lot of fun.

    He was willing to do it for Double Down. I can see why. It all got started when, during the Pre-rec stream him and Jack kept making jokes about Neil Breen the director/star/writer. I managed to make Rich laugh with a dumb pun about Chuck Norris. I actually have proof of that, but I gotta wait for them to upload it to youtube lol

  • bassbait

    for the record I still think Things is the best bad movie, but I could see Double Down wrestling it’s way past Nukie for number 2.

  • bassbait

    The simplified version is that it’s the most perfectly constructed system of gameplay that comes to mind. Pac Man is too simple and thus becomes boring, Half-life is too complicated and alienates “noobs”. Doom is the perfect middle ground where it not only attracts a high amount of players, but also has a perfect balance of assets (weapons, health system, enemies, etc) that it allows for maximum expansion on just the basic assets. In other words, you could make exactly 100 Super Mario Bros levels and they’d get boring after a while. You could make exactly 100 Halo or COD or Half-life or Quake levels and they’d get boring after a while. Doom is the game that is just perfectly balanced where this would be the least of an issue. 100 levels of Doom would still be enjoyable, given that the creators of the levels actually care about what they’re doing. Of course that’s subjective, it’s my own perspective, but I’m trying to examine games for both my own personal worth and the worth of a wider audience.

    And if that’s the simplified version, you can imagine how long the actual video would be. The extremely simplified version is “Doom is the greatest game to ever follow the arcade model”

    Depends on the design of the toilet bowl.
    They are all supposed to create a spinning vortex which should suck the contents of the toilet out into the pipes.

    In my experience, cheap toilets (i.e. most of them) simply don’t have the right geometry to do it right.
    We did some renovating few years back and as we were adding a bidet toilet seat AND moving walls and pipes and whatnot – we also got a just a slightly more expensive toilet bowl.
    It’s fabulous.

    Bidet stream alone usually flushes out almost everything but the mega-turds. Proper geometry, that’s all.
    On the other hand, out of all the toilets I’ve shat in, this is the first toilet bowl I’ve seen that does it right.

    The thing about PJ is that he’s excessive and self-indulgent. Not in the same way as someone like Zack Snyder but still not every material is suited to that kind of approach. LOTR doesn’t feel it’s length even with 4 hour extended cuts while smth like King Kong seems to drag on for so long your entire life flashes before your eyes. I haven’t seen them but maybe he should go back to his roots-low budget horror films. That’s one genre and a type of movie in which excess can do absolute wonders cough The Evil Dead cough

  • Bubs

    I feel for the guy, I really do. That looks like it sucked. And to be perfectly honest, I probably would have quit if I was saddled with a task like that.

    HOWEVER, and it’s a big however, Peter Jackson is missing the most obvious thing in the world: He didn’t need to make three fucking movies. The world would’ve been just as happy with 2 or even (god forbid) one movie.

    Still, I look forward to the next PJ film. He’s a good filmmaker. Period.

    I actually think the 7th two-parter movie is okay. It’s the 5th and 6th one that are bordering on unwatchable tripe for me.

  • Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fine movie but it was hard to care after waiting so many years for it to end.

    If you want to meet Carrie “Where’s My Fucking Coke” Fisher, Part Time, John Boyegan, Oscar Wilde, Daisy Cutie, or the guy we cast as Max Landis you can…only if you give money to charity.

  • Wizard Phoenix

    Martin and Emilio are face-palming at their vineyard.

  • I would like to meet coke without Grandma Leia.

  • It’s what we are suppose to do in Europe right now! Specialism! Anyway, have you seen a real asian person before? They sure are scary! Why here is a clip now!

  • Wizard Phoenix

    She’ll maul you if you bring any coke. Remember what happened to Mark Hamill?

  • That’s the official version, but I bet she snorted some Michael Caine off his saber.

  • I saw an interview with Martin a few years ago about Charlie. It was heartbreaking to watch.

  • Palpatine

    No Mark Hamill?

    Hey, did you ever want to know where the “it’s gonna be great” and “it’s like poetry” clips came from? Well here you go:

    I’m basing my comment on marketing.

  • Palpatine

    You could’ve called him “the Joker”.

    star wars is like a big toy box at this point that directors will play in

  • Like Icare

    star wars is like a big toy box at this point that directors sponsors will play in

  • RLMkeepitup

    maybe we’ll see our first product placements!

  • Palpatine

    Star Wars is a big toy box at this point that directors sponsors fat retarded manchild fanboys will play in.

  • Snake Squeezer

    I don’t know who Max Landis is.

  • Snake Squeezer

    He’s got Tiger blood. A very sick Tiger’s blood, from Africa, that’s dead now, he shared a needle with it, then they made sweet love, then Charlie paid the Tiger not to talk, and then the Tiger had to listen to Charlie go on TV all the time and talk about his “Tiger Blood, YOLO!,” and the Tiger was like, “dude, WTF? I kept MY mouth shut. Fricking Hollywood, man.”

  • Like Icare

    The other day I turn my head at a TV and I see a Star Wars commercial.
    And then it turns out to be a commercial with Energizer bunnies.

    Star Wars is the product that’s being placed – in commercials for everything else.

  • RLMkeepitup

    oh he’s the next next Spielberg

  • bassbait

    he’s the next John Landis.

  • Snake Squeezer

    Spielberg is the guy who did 1945, right?

  • Palpatine

    His only film.

  • Palpatine

    That’s capitalism for you.

  • Snake Squeezer

    That’s okay though, because it is a masterpiece.

  • Doctor Andre Son of Thomas.

    that does explain a lot.

  • Snake Squeezer

    Another Home Alone movie? I hope there are some smart criminals who just shoot the kid right away in this one.

  • Palpatine

    He also made a movie about a shark, one about an alien, one about a guy who goes on adventures, one about a dinosaur theme park, and one about the Holocaust. But no one remembers those.

  • Snake Squeezer

    Are you making fun of the prequels again?

  • Like Icare

    No. He’s the guy who made 1941.

  • Palpatine

    Of course, I got nothing better to do.

  • Snake Squeezer

    Hitler?

  • bassbait

    I think that Dead Alive is better than Evil Dead. Just sayin’.

    Also Bad Taste was great. I recommend those two at least.

  • Like Icare

    No. He made 1939.
    But the woman who made his version of Star Wars actually released it in 1935.
