  1. So much logic in these old movies, I don't even know where to begin. Good to see that torture fetishes go way back though.

    1. I'm sure torture fetishes go back a long way! At least being the torturer goes back to the Spanish Inquesition!

  2. Without your digressions, this movie wouldn't be any fun at all! I especially loved the comic references and the added gump/starwars footage. The portion where you shot future you was brilliant as well. I loved the T-shirt!

    I've actually used his technique for picking up chicks. Weird thing is that it works(for maybe .001% of the population, but it does work!

    Great review!

  5. I liked the review. This was awesome.
    Man slut doesnt just mean Virtuous, it also mean stud, hunk, macho, and much more.
    The burning guy's revenge talk reminds me of comic in Bart's. Where Jesus dies and takes birth as Hitler and gets back on all Jews :)

    I liked your future-self's hairstyle.
    And about same guy playing great-great-great-great-dad and son, do you know how many characters has voice of Seth MacFarlene in Family Guy?

    1. Glad you liked the review.

      Just checked out the comic on Barts blog! Very funny! I can see why you were reminded of it!

      Yeah Seth MacFarlene plays a lot of the same family! and their dog too! Its weird to think a dad and his baby having the same voice actor!

  7. This sounds like a really confusing movie. At least at first. That comet was a pretty shitty effect, even for the time. I'd be kind of worried about what you might do because that guy (who was totally not you in a costume) seemed to be from 2012. I'm not convinced that guy was you. I think that thing was better looking that Gene Simmons without his make up on. So Mexican cops carry flame throwers? Fucking awesome I'm going to be a Mexican cop. Though this review had a distinct lack of "WHAT THE FUCK?!?"

    1. Oddly enough almost all the scenes of the movie I summed up were from the first third of the movie, the monster slowly kills the victums over the last two thirds of the movie! Yeah the guy from the year 2012 is from this year... he's out there right now! Watch your back! (wow that takes me back now! I put that video on youtube March 3rd 2010 but I made it back in Nov/Dec of 2009! Back when 2012 was a far off date!)
      I'd like to see a flamethrower fight between those Mexican Cops and Ripley from Alien! And yeah theres not many "What the Truck?!" moments in my old reviews... its more of a crutch I use now when I've been rendered speachless by the stupidity of a show!

  8. What an absolutely horrible movie. If I saw the 2012 guy I'd die of laughter first..pfft. The guide to picking up was great..haha...Maybe you said have said run less times and just meep meep hahaha...at least you got a shirt too.

  13. Good thing the cops were harboring flamethrowers at their headquarters. Also, the ending was genius, leave the audience to tie up those pesky loose-ends.

    Another brilliant review!

    1. Old movies were lucky, they didn't have to have a real end! They just throw up a The End and its over!

  14. "Ah saucy boy" I love the way you said that line. Am I talking to your future self here or your past self? Or is the guy running this blog really your great-great-grandson and you're just too cheap to hire another Bersercules to play the role. Which is it? Come on now, tell me, tell me.

    1. Actually its all! I'm my own great grandson and I'm from both the past and future and I paid myself very little money to play Bersercules!

    1. The monster is him, he just got a shave and a green dye job before he started hassling Superman!

  16. It took me some time to realize that is your voice at the beginning. Also, why 3 parts? Doesn't everyone get 2 hours or something? I don't upload anything on Youtube other than exploding motorcycles in games.

    1. Its a cheap effect. I just talked through my hand.
      Its in three parts because when you start a youtube account they only let you put videos up to ten minutes on. Once you have a few videos that get views and all they let you go up to 15 minutes (I had made about 10 videos before they let me go up higher.) and eventually they let you go higher then that (but I don't know how much higher as none of my videos are over 15 minutes, but they could be).

  18. At first I was kind of worried about you. I had thought you had mistakenly killed a version of your future self that had traveled back through time to try to stop you from reviewing this movie. But then you explained you were just making fun of the way this movie used the same actor to play 2 different parts, and I took a deep sigh of relief. Well, I can think of something worse. It's when they replaced Lionel on "The Jeffersons" with a totally different actor, and we all had to pretend that the totally different person was Lionel. Then when we got used to the new Lionel, they suddenly brought the original Lionel back and then we had to pretend that original Lionel never left, and he had actually been there all along. It was worse than the Lois Lane can't tell the difference between Clark Kent and Superman thing. But I digress,...next time some jerks or bullies are giving me a hard time, I am going to threaten to bring harm on all their descendants like the Baron did. Yeah, that'll teach 'em. The end.

    1. Actually that whole "we're the same person" bit was a lie! He was actually a hobo I met that looked exactly like me and I convinced him to be in my video then I killed him... don't tell anybody.
      They also changed the oldest daughter on Roseanne too! And her replacement looked totally different! And then when she returned the replacement made a guest apperence on the show! Crazy show!
      Yeah the Barons threats where quite awesome! Definitely use them if you get the chance!

  19. Interesting choice of movies. Also nice review.

  20. I second the Angry Lurker's call for you to have your own show. All you need is an intro that includes a spaceship that looks similar to the one from MST3000 (but now similar enough that you get sued) flying into the Sun, and some images of Hercules working up a sweat by doing some difficult tasks before sitting down to watch and review movies. Anyway, that is just the first thing that came into my head.
