Jim finds a magic word, lines are flubbed repeatedly, and guest stars go berserk as we invite you to join us in reviewing the funniest outtakes from the Muppet Wish Day 2014 video!
Featuring Sunny Jim, Starchibald, Blockbuster Chick, Dubious Khan, DJ Soundbite, Randy Feltface, Ash the Cat, Nash Bozard and excessive amounts of Obscurus Lupa and Phelous!
If you guys do end up watching the entirety of The Hobbit and do like it (I personally love it though the 48 frames per second frame rate was un-called for) I'd love to see you do a discussion on it. :) Oh could you imagine World War Z or even The Walking Dead done in the Planet of the Apes universe but instead of zombies we had apes? BTW it's my birthday!
Harry Potter or Hunger Games?
1999’s “Idle Hands”, starring Devon Sawa, Jessica Alba and Seth Green.
Will you guys ever get back to reviewing and what are your thoughts on Peter Jackson's Middle-Earth Saga, World War Z movie and the Planet of the Apes reboot?
We’re working on a review for Christmas, but we find the riffs more fun to do and less crowded than the review thing. There aren’t that many people doing riffs with full sketches, after all. Glad you like the reviews enough to ask for more.
Also, Starch and Sunny Jim are each working on a different episode-by-episode TV review project. Those movies aren’t really our wheelhouse for reviews. We kind of have this cheap movie/forgotten TV thing going. The big blockbusters are pretty well covered so we go for bargain films. Though we did go to Trent the Human and ask him, and after we assured him that he wasn’t being asked to edit together another video with twenty plus participants he put down the broken bottle of Coconut Amsterdam and gave his thoughts:
Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth Saga - I dig it pretty well. The original trilogy is visually stunning and nitpicking the connection to the original novels is just that, nitpicking. I fully support pretending Tom Bombadil never happened. I will always like the animated Gollum from the Hobbit’s design best, but its raw frog-like inhumanity would not have worked for the level of emotional interaction the films demanded.
I suspect we’ll find that the Hobbit trilogy, once it is complete, will be easily editable down to two longish movies or three normal length ones. The additional material varies from good to bizarrely out of place. Probably due to Jackson really liking the Silmarillion but knowing he’ll never get to make a movie of it.
World War Z Movie - I have not seen this film and have zero motivation to do so. I don’t dig fast zombies, and I am burned out on pandemic monsterism in pretty much every case. About the only horror tropes I am less enthusiastic about are science vampires and/or werewolves and adaptations of I am Legend that miss the point of the ending.
Planet of the Apes Reboot - I have heard these are good movies. Haven’t seen them yet. The first of the original series was a very good sci-fi movie for its time. The sequels are good for a completely different reason, sort of like how A Nightmare on Elm Street is worth watching for being a scary movie, and the ones from about #3 on were the over-the-top quipping adventures of Freddy Kruger, killer of people who are clearly not still teenagers. Both worth watching, but for VERY different reasons.
Hey, will you be announcing the results of the animal mascot contest soon?
NASH THE ALL POWERFUL!
You can’t see it in this shot (or most others) but directly behind Nash is the Wisconsin Civil Defense office. The other businesses you can make out on a basic viewing.
The lawyer-lightning battle was a lot of fun to edit.
