Reviews... Bottom of the Barrel reviews...
« on: July 06, 2012, 01:28:51 pm »
I used to make videos, as some around here might remember, but I found I quickly ran out of things to say.  I'm not the type to have an endless amount of topics to rant about, like Roger; I'm also not the type to repeat the same shit over and over using different buzzwords, like Hugh.  Am I dating myself here?

Anyway, one thing I've always had a lot to say about, since a early age, was movies.... so recently I had been chewing on the idea of doing something NOBODY else on the interwebs had done... review bad movies online.

Here was my first go:

If you enjoy, possibly consider sending the link to anyone else you think may like this sort of thing... if you don't enjoy let me know here.  Or there.  If you are indifferent, try to get out more, breath air and talk to people... the malaise will pass.  Unless you are clinically depressed, in which case this just got uncomfortable rather swiftly.  I'll tip-toe out now.

That was really entertaining (probably more so than the whole movie condensed).  :wink:


Can I make a suggestion on a future episode?

The Last Lovecraft

It's pretty much made for your show.

Really pleased you enjoyed!  I think my narration needs to be improved, its sort of hypnotic in this episode.

And, consider that film added to the list of shame.

Oh shit that was awesome!

You gotta keep doing these! I have the attention span of a gnat but watched it all the way through AND laughed a lot, and my kids kept coming over to check it out.

Shared amongst all XD This is awesome! Took me a few tries for some reason it didn't load.
I thought this is all there is,
but now I know you are so much more.
I want to upgrade from my simple eight bits,
but will you still love me when I'm sixty-four?

Also, my disturbing interpretation of the 5-year-old was that she was supposed to be ditzy/comic relief, but she came across as ACTUALLY MENTALLY RETARDED, which was just disturbing as fuck.

YES EXACTLY!  The movie was a mess. 

Really thrilled you guys like!  And I fully intend to keep on going with them, I have a bunch planned.

I got the impression she was so traumatized by events that she reverted to a childlike state from the emotional damage.

But I could be wrong.  Either way her part looks pointless and annoying as FUCK.

Either way, the fact that the audience is forced to speculate why one of the characters is suddenly mentally retarded is a major character development fail.  :lulz:

Indeed... although at least her character attracted thought... most of the other characters merely spoke lines and made no impact whatsoever.  Bad bad bad.  Was it obvious to everyone that the lady I referred to as Psuedo Latina was Asian?
