  3. @Bart I'm working on new stuff now but the holidays are getting in the way. So for a while all you'll get is the Ol' Timey Movie Reviewer! Bersercules will be back next week for a video!

    @Shutterbug Be glad! He's quite a weirdo!

  4. "I'll never be able to look at Catholic School girls the same way again" I know how you feel, because my hot Scotsman fantasy is blown to hell now. I couldn't believe you did that Anthony Quinn joke, but you did. I make it a point to have at least one grenade on me at all times, just in case.

    I know this is off topic, but since we're looking at black and white movies I thought I'd ask you if you like MGM musicals. I love them. They capture the period in Hollywood history when they were made. I'm a big fan of Gene Kelly from when I was a litle girl.

  5. At least they look closer to hot scotsmen then school girls!

    The Anthony Quinn joke is also a Yul Brynner joke! The actor throwing the gernade in the movie is a young Anthony Quinn in a early role and the line about not throwing gernades is a parody of Yul Brynners post death commersial where he said: Now that I'm gone, I tell you: Don't smoke, whatever you do, just don't smoke.

    I've never seen a MGM musical, I'm not against watching one I just never have! What one do you recommend I should watch?

  7. Start with Gene Kelly in Summer Stock and An American in Paris. (Kelly's full Irish but born in the States), those are classics. And Yul Brenner is in The King and I, another classic and one of my favorites. There are scads if them. If you check one out I hope you grow to like them.

  11. Lol this one was great. It took a bit to load, maybe it's just my connection today, and mayyyyyyybe it was a little long, but the whole thing was funny. Nice :D

  12. @D4 It might be the video! I watched it earlier (to refresh my memory of it cause I haven't seen it in a year or so) and it was acting weird! You think thats long? Crazy! Don't worry though! YouTube wont let me put on videos longer than 15minutes so there will never be a longer video!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Additional: Exept my first three videos which are all twenty something minutes long.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Additional: But they where cut into short segments.

  15. I just got your comment. It was great. We've gotta stop meeting like this. I may have just passed your future child on my way over here tonight. Damn wormholes.

  16. Hey, if a man can't walk around with no pants, what's left for him in life?

    ReplyDelete
  17. hahaha that looks like one awful movie, you sure didn't phone it in though. I didn't know you were being blatant either, you tricked me. "rolls eyes"..haha

    Madness the plane blew up, sooo hard to see coming..hahaha

  18. I miss you saying "Hi, I'm Bersercules, the Beserk Herc" and the fist pump. BY THE POWER OF GREYSKULL! I really admire your wit. I spotted myself a potential fault! He said that he had Bulldog's pants, but they're supposed to be in England, so hopefully he would already be wearing pants, and would want his trousers. Who did you manage to rope into taking part in this stuff with you? Wait, I offered to do that...

    Don't throw a grenade, you have to pull the pin out first or they'll just throw it back! (after removing the pin hopefully)

    One last point, maybe in a future video you could have Jezzer Hora fight Major Lee Lame for supremacy and best supporting character.

  19. really good info man. never heard of this stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh ok, thanks for checking back! Have a great day!!!

  21. Wasn't that an Irish jig in Scottish kilt?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I haven't had a chance to watch it yet, there's so much text to read in your blog post :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Anne Who are you I don't recall ever meeting you before... since when do I have a blog?...

    @heddin Truer words where never spoken!

    @Pat Hatt I'm glad you liked it and thanks for not phoning in your comment!

    @Mark I miss saying it! I made a new Ol' Timey review and I almost wanted to say it then! You might be right with the trousers.

    And for who I roped into appearing in this: Its my girlfriend! She makes a bunch of appearences in the old videos, but she doesn't really like it and so she doesn't do it any more! (which sucks cause I can always use someone for additional jokes) also side note, although she's been in a bunch of them she's never watched one of my videos!

    Maybe the two could fight for supremecy but my favorite supporting character is: Stupid Hillbilly.

    @Christopher Franko Glad you liked the info!

    @Baur No problem! Have a great day!

    @Henry I'm not sure. I don't know enough about Irish music!

    @Anne Thanks you kindly!

    @Heaven. I know I should learn to cut back on all the writting I do in my posts! Sorry about that!

  24. Getting more fancy and more help with this videos eh? :P

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well if I was anywhere near you I'd be more than willing to help out (though I already am a little, so you know I'm not just saying that!) Maybe that's how the fight gets started, you say Stupid Hillbilly is your favourite, or he comes along and then they fight for the title. It can be a good way to kill them off!

  26. I loved this review, I'd never heard of Bulldog Drummond until today but after further viewing I see he has a pretty big catalogue of uncared for, unremarkable movies, it's crazy that this guy exists but I'd never heard of him before.

    I seriously have to wonder what the point was of the whole hiding underneath the window scene, it just seems so random and pointless in all honesty, excellent stuff as always, the Old Time Movie Reviewer isn't as great as the Bersecules but his stuff can be way more gimmicky and inventive than just plain reviews so I love them both!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yea I like this guys videos good info

    ReplyDelete
  28. Why haven't I seen this on American Movie Classics?

    ReplyDelete
  29. And this is why I stay away from most b&w films

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is great. XD I wish I had the comedic abilities you have.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Bulldog Drummond is the father of Mr Drummond from Different Strokes

    ReplyDelete
  32. That's it? No action scenes whatsoever? What a disappointment.

    ReplyDelete
  33. just using the word "trousers" sounds funny

    ReplyDelete
  34. I wish you had a monocle in these old timey vids.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Heh, that sounds like an awesome movie.

    ReplyDelete
  36. More from ye olden timer black and whitsey movie reviews! So many of them..... so many that I won't watch! Still, it's great seeing you dissect them!

    ReplyDelete
  37. very informative.... keep u man...

    ReplyDelete
  38. WHY DOES NO ONE HAVE PANTS? If all you told me was that the movie was named Bulldog Drummond, and it was a bunch of men with no pants, I'd think you were reviewing a gay porno.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Sorrow were ever razed, and testy wrath. Supporting!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I can't remember, did I comment on this video?

    Either way, I want to know know what she sees in Drummond. Does she have a thing for guys without pants?

    ReplyDelete
  41. @DWei Actually less! These are old videos! I use to be more fancy and had help, now I'm boring and alone!

    @Mark If you lived anywhere near me I'd force you to appear in them as a secondary charator! (or as my reviewer sidekick!)

    @R Glad you like it!

    @YeamieWaffles Yep Bulldog made a whole bunch of lame movies! And the hidding scene is just one example of how old movies whould pad themselves and try to build tention! Lots of old movies try'd pulling that BS, thats why I love reviewing them! Theres so much to say!

    I'll try and make the Bersercules reviews funner and more inventive from now on!

    @Devour Thanks for watching!

    @Baur Glad you liked it!

    @Al Penwasser I don't know! You better write them a strongly worded letter! (of thanks!)

    @MRanthrope Yeah the video was having trouble on YouTube that day! Gosh YouTube can be trouble!

    @Shaw And to think, this isn't even that bad of an example!

    @Dylanthulhu Thanks! And I'm glad you enjoyed!

    @Natural One I never knew that! But it makes perfect sence!

    @Lord Phrozen Yeah old movies often don't have much action!

    @Electric Addict Very true! "trousers!" hahaha

    @JDC That would be cool! I wish I had a monocle!

    @R.gers Ha! Right you are!

    @JOutlaw Glad you enjoy the disecting of them! But yeah, not all black and white movies are for everyone!

    @navenprasad26 Thanks glad you enjoyed!

    @A Beer for the Shower Good point! Heck, maybe thats what qualified as a gay porno back then!

    @Lexsa Happyness is raised and great thanks! Commenting!

    @DWei Yes you did! I think shes into him because hes rich! Guys can get away with anything if they're rich!
