Hey guys! I’ve been hard at work working
on my “Synecdoche, New York” analysis, but in the meantime, I thought I
would do a Blu-ray collection video. I have never done such a thing before,
but other critics have done it, so why not? Why the fuck not? People have
asked for it, I might as well do it. “Archer” season one. Pretty funny show. I think it’s great, and I… at one point
I thought it was the best animated show on television, but now that has been replaced by another
show, which I will mention in a second, ’cause this collection starts with
my TV show DVD… Blu-rays. “Archer” season two, “Archer” season three. Bam! I’m doing this productively. Dragon Ball Z Kai This was a gift. Thank you, Mysterio skull (?). I still haven’t watched it yet. I feel like a
piece of shit because I haven’t watched it yet. I’m trying to watch it with somebody, you know. It seems
like the type of thing that’s better to watch in a group. And like, I like to see the Kai version, because
that show did have a lot of fucking filler, and the Kai version is basically the
exact same thing with the filler cut out, so I’m excited to see it. I just need to… grab one of
my friends and tie them up and force them to watch it. Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Volume One. Surprisingly awesome. Especially
given the historical context, so there’s ones as old as like the
1940’s, I think, maybe even older. There’s one that has Porky
stating The Pledge of Allegiance, before “under god” was added into it.
So he’s saying: “One nation indivisible”, so that had to have been in the 1950’s, I looked
up a bit of it on Wikipedia. It’s a little fascinating, and especially given the animation, just how much hard work
went into every single one of these short films that’s on here, I love Looney Tunes, and uh… I mean,
some of them are shit on here, but… even if it’s not a particularly great
episode, which most of them are, there’s a lot of fun historical context to chew on
when you’re watching them, and it’s really cool. Volume two also. I haven’t even finished
volume one. But I bought volume two anyway. Not only is this a Blu-ray collection video, but
it’s a video where you can watch my hair dry over the course of however long
it takes for me to make this. Probably shouldn’t be too long,
I’m trying to do this pretty fast. “Rick and Morty”, best animated show on
television right now. Check it out, please watch it. Also, there’s a cool thing that
they included. This little pan flit. If you don’t … if this isn’t
familiar to you, then… hilarious. But there… what it’s a parody of, this pan flit… Not only was it in one of the actual episodes of
the show in the season, but what it’s a parody of… is these things, where people want to force their
religion on other people and guilt people into believing, and so they leave these little pan flits. These are real that I’m holding up, by the way,
just ’cause I’ve collected them over the years. They’ll leave them in, like, public parks and camp grounds
and shit, so that when someone finds them, they’re like: “I don’t know who put this here! It must be from God!”
and so they read through it, and they’re like: “Oh no! I’m a sinner! I’m saying bad words, I’m having
premarital sex with contraception. Oh no! I’m going to hell!” Anyway, the degree to which they were able
to replicate these is so impressive to me. The fact that they look so similar and even on the back,
the one that… the real one is called: “Chick publications”, and this one just says: “Morty publications”.
Everything is pretty down to a T, I love it. Hilarious. If you wanna read the whole thing… I don’t know,
if somebody, like, made a tortilla of it, but I mean… Who would… like, I don’t know, someone might have a scan
of these that you can find on not The Pirate Bay anymore, because they got rated and… so I guess until that’s
back. Otherwise you can buy the Blu-ray like me, but… I mean, I didn’t know this was going to be in
the Blu-ray, it’s just an awesome nice little feature. Their special features on this are also pretty good.
I haven’t listened to all the commentaries yet, but the one featurette that they had was petty
fucking funny, so I would suggest checking it out. Best animated show on television
right now. Not even kidding. Now into the movies: “12 monkeys”, quite possibly
my favorite time travel movie, directed by Terry Gilliam. I included a clip of it in my World War
Zed/Zee whatever review, and I think… If it’s not Brad Pitt’s best performance, it’s one of his best.
It’s probably my favorite performance by Brad Pitt. “12 years a slave”, a great
2013 movie by Steve McQueen. No, not the dead Steve McQueen,
the black Steve McQueen. And if my favorite director, Michael Haneke
dies, which he will soon, unfortunately, not because he has like cancer or anything
but just ’cause he’s really really old, Steve McQueen will probably
become my favorite living director. Unless he makes something soon
that’s like a piece of shit, I don’t know. But still, he’s consistently made fantastic movies. All of
his movies are, like, between eight and ten out of ten for me. I don’t know if I would call any of his movies
ten, so between eight and nine out of ten, which is, like, fantastic for any director to consistently
and consecutively push out movies that are that great. It’s fantastic and a lot of people like
to brush this off and think, like: “Oh, it depicts slavery against black people.
Therefore it is a guilt trip movie with no substance and the only reason people like it is
because I’m supposed to feel white guilt.” No, that movie is called “Precious”. “12 years a slave” is a fantastic film and if you know anything
about directing, cinematography, music, performances, etcetera, the actual substance to film, you would know
that it is a great film and whether or not any of these events in the film are happening to
black or white people, it doesn’t fucking matter. He told a great story and as the best black
director and almost the best living director, it’s about fucking time that he
made a story about black people. His first two movies… there’s only, like, one
black character total. So he’s not Tyler Perry, he’s not… he’s not race-baiting, he’s not pandering,
he’s a great director and you shouldn’t dismiss his films, just because you think that it falls in the
same category as “The Butler” or some shit. “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Fantastic film.
Not sure I really need to say much about it. Excuse me. Better special effects than a lot
of shit that’s out currently. Which is saying a lot for, like,
a movie made in, what, 1968, I think. “28 days later”. Every single person… If you go on…
Well, I guess you can’t go on The Pirate Bay anymore… If you go anywhere where they’re talking about
this Blu-ray, or maybe in forums on Bluray.com, people will tell you that it’s shit quality,
like it’s the worst quality of all time. Let’s just actually see what the uhm… Does it not state the uh… aspect ratio? Does it
not say whether or not it’s like 1080p or anything? Jesus christ. It doesn’t really say… It doesn’t really matter though, because this film was made
when filming with a digital camera was a stylistic choice. Not something to do as an alternative to film,
because all digital camera’s were kinda shit, and so… If you watch the Blu-ray, it’s gonna
look like the worst Blu-ray transfer of all time. No, the transfer is perfect, it’s the camera’s that were
shit and Danny Boyle wanted to give it a more urban vibe. And… I mean, nowadays, now that everybody is a
quality whore, well, I am at least and a lot of people are, and Blu-ray is a big thing, nowadays I wish that the movie
didn’t look so pixelated, because I would enjoy seeing more of it. But either way, I mean,
it’s the best it can be, so… Whatever. I’ll watch it again sometime, and I mean,
once you… once you get used to it, it’s not so bad. “Adaptation”, a great film starring Nicolas Cage,
written by Charlie Kaufman, my favorite screenwriter, and directed by Spike Jonze and you should all…
I guess you should all know who Spike Jonze is. He directed “Her”, her directed “Where the wild things are”,
he directed… [burp] Excuse me, uh… “Being John Malkovich.” Oh my god. Carbonated beverages, I’m sorry. “After Earth”, best comedy of 2013.
Three out of ten. Amazing, amazing film. Included with purchase. Digital Ultraviolet. So you don’t…
you don’t have to pirate it if you want it on your hard drive. You can just buy a Blu-ray and then you can put it
on your hard drive, so there’s no reason to pirate it. Oh, offer expires… Oops! So it looks like the pirates are offering a
better service if you want it on your hard drive. Either that, or you can rip the Blu-ray to your hard drive, but
that’s an unauthorized copy, so that’s illegal and you’re a criminal. “Airplane” one and two. Recently got this.
It was a really cheap thing of the both of them. I haven’t seen them in a while. I remember enjoying
those films, or at least the first one a lot. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, it’s kinda stupid,
obviously. But it started this wave of parody films. I think it’s responsible for a lot of them, I’m not sure how far back
I could trace parody films similiar to “Airplane” before “Airplane”. If there’s another one that anybody
has in mind, I guess let me know. I’m gonna grab another stack of
Blu-ray’s aaaaaaand… give me a second. “The Ambassador”, a great Danish movie and most of… I think…
pretty much the… most… the vast majortiy of it is in English. It’s a documentary. If you wanna know what I have to say
about it, check out my 2011 of 2012? Jesus, I don’t even know. One of those two. It’s near the bottom of my list,
but it’s still great. Definitely worth owning on Blu-ray. This is Region Free. No, Region A,
wow. Region A, so… good to go! “American Beauty”, awesome, great film. You all know
about it, it’ll be on my ’99 list, whenever that happens. “American Psycho”. Some of you guys don’t like that I put it in
my “Best underrated horror movies” list, because it’s not underrated. The reason why I considered it to be underrated
is because even though anybody who gives a shit about movies knows about it and anybody
who likes horror movies also knows about it. Those two categories have overlapped like a Venn diagram,
but you don’t necessarily have to be a part of both. Anyway… General public… I’m not sure
knows too much about it. I’m basing it mostly on the fact that if you look at how much money
it made its theatrical release, which is, like, next to nothing… that’s kinda why I was basing it as underrated. I can see
why people wouldn’t want me to say it’s underrated, but… I don’t know, regardl… it’s a good movie.
We should all just calm down and be friends. “Amores Perros”, probably… damn, is it Alejandro’s best
movie? I don’t know. “Birdman” was pretty awesome too. Everybody should check out this movie. If you don’t have a Region B Blu-ray player:
Sorry! You can’t watch it on Blu-ray! There’s a 1080p torrent available, but if you down… I think maybe. There has to be a HD
torrent available, I haven’t checked. But if you download the torrent, you’re a criminal.
You’re not allowed to download an HD torrent of this movie, because that is the loss of a sale, even though we’re
not willing to sell you the product that you want to buy. You’re stealing from us. We will refuse to sell you a Region A
copy of this Blu-ray, but if you download it, you’re stealing. Check it out, it’s really…
It’s fantastic, I love it. “Amour”, from my favorite I mentioned,
Michael Haneke. This won the Palme d’Or. It was on my 2012 list. Watch my 2012 list
to check out what I had to say about it. First Criterion Collection Blu-ray:
“Antichrist”, by Lars von TRIER. Some people said that I was pronouncing his
name wrong in my “Nymphomaniac” review. Spoiler: “Nymphomaniac” is a piece of shit. No, I pronounced his name wrong and right, I was doing it both,
that was intentional, like your excuse for his shitty movies. Not for everybody. It’s a little horrific, but it
tries to be, it’s disturbing, but it tries to be, so if you don’t wanna be disturbed and
don’t wanna see… kinda fucked up things. A lot of people… a decent amount of people don’t like it,
I thought it was great. Some great cinematography. There was like a moment or two that I couldn’t
take seriously, but overall, I think it’s great. “Appleseed Ex Machina”. I was over at a really nerdy friend’s house. I don’t know if I would
even call him my friend. I was with other friends that were with… friends with this nerdy person and I was just, like, kinda
stopping by and they were watching this and I was like: “The animation looks cool!” And so then, when I first…
When I got a job at HMV, which is a DVD/ Blu-ray store, I think this was the first Blu-ray I ever bought, so that’s part
of why I haven’t gotten rid of it, because I don’t really watch it much, I don’t really care too much about it. Sorry to the fans of this.
It’s cool animation, that’s for sure. I like the animation, it’s a bit cheesy. But yeah, I saw it playing at some
nerdy person’s house and I was like: “Hmm, I should buy a Blu-ray someday
now that I have a Playstation triple.” Jezus christ. “Armadillo”. Fantastic movie. Documentary.
Check it out in my 2010 review. “Armadillo”. Now, you’re probably wondering why I have
two copies of this. Well… both of these are Region B, so if you don’t have a Region B Blu-ray player and you wanna
watch the movie in HD, you’re a criminal. You’re not allowed. The reason why I have two of these… I swear to God… no, yeah,
this… they’re both Region B. … is because there’s two different
editions that were released. No real discerneble difference
between the two of them, but on my Region Free Blu-ray player… By the way, if you don’t have a Region Free Blu-ray
player but you have a modded PS3, you can… There’s mods you can get that you
can make your PS3 region free, if you have the fat one and
if it’s not updated recently. Just saying. Not saying that’s
what I’m doing. Anyway… There’s a… they’re not work… They’re my only Region B
Blu-ray’s that don’t work on my Region Free Blu-ray player. I have plenty of Region B Blu-ray’s
and both of these editions… They won’t get past the opening… they won’t
even get to the Blu-ray menu, they just get stuck. These are two different purchases, two
different editions, two different Blu-rays. However, there’s one of them…
and I’m forgetting which one now, one of them, for whatever fucking reason works on my
Xbox One, sorry, Xbone, it’s what it deserves to be called. New consoles are a piece of
shit, both of them, by the way. For whatever reason, one of these
Region B Blu-ray’s works on my Xbone, and the frame rate is shit, but it works, and it plays the
movie, but the HD torrent looks a lot better, I’m assuming. You should watch it, but if your anti-piracy, then I guess
you can’t, unless you wanna settle for a DVD version. “Army or darkness”. Hilarious movie. A hilarious third movie of a trilogy that wasn’t
hilarious to begin with. More hilarious to me. I still feel like the original “Evil Dead” is a bit of
a comedy, even though it was probably the most serious. Everybody loves the Sam Raimi “Evil Dead” trilogy. “Audition”. This will be on my top whatever of
the year list, I don’t even remember what year. Maybe it’s also, like, 1999 or 2001
or around that time, I don’t remember. Check it out. It’s creepy as fuck. “Avatar”. I bought it when I worked at Blockbuster,
because it was really cheap for me to buy movies. That’s kinda why I have
all these movies, although… Like, I’m still buying Blu-ray’s recently, because I wanna
support artists that are making movies that I like. But there was a time, I guess like
maybe five years ago, I don’t know. Five years ago, I guess, when I was
just agressively buying movies, ’cause I was getting them for such good discounts
at all these different movie stores that I worked at. This is one of those movies where I bought it and I thought that I
would watch it and I literally haven’t watched it since I bought it. And I bought it when it came out, so… I saw this movie once in theaters and
I kinda wanna see it again, but it’s… I guess I’ll see it before “Avatar 2”. By the way, they have the fourth one listed on IMDB,
the second one hasn’t even come out yet. “Babel”, another Alejandro González
Iñarrítu/ Iñárritu, I don’t know. Dude… My pronunciation sucks, but it’s difficult when a lot
of the directors I like just happen to be in another country, and it’s… the struggle is real, ok?
That’s all I gotta say. This is a good movie. I need to rewatch it before I can say that it’s,
like, absolutely great, but I know it’s good. “Being John Malkovich”, Criterion. Fantastic movie
by Spike Jonze, written by Charlie Kaufman. Criterion: if you don’t… if you’re not too familiar
with Criterion: check out their website: Criterion.com. They have a bunch of movies and if you know of a movie
that is released both on Criterion and regular Blu-ray: Buy the Criterion, because they give great transfers,
there’s always shit-tons of special features, they stay true to the artist’s vision and show alternatives
to what could have been if the studio had their way, like, in a… I guess one that I’ll mention coming up. But their transfers are great and you’ve
got to respect, you HAVE to respect the fact that when you put the Blu-ray
in your machine on a Criterion Blu-ray… … it goes to the menu. It doesn’t
give you unskippable bullshit saying: “Hey! Did you know that you could go to jail if you
steal or make unauthorized copies of this Blu-ray?” because sharing it with your friends, borrowing it, lending it to
your friend or inviting people over to watch a movie is not a crime, but if there’s a computer in between that process
to let a friend borrow it, then that’s a crime. They don’t have those. They just assume that you’re not a stupid
dipshit that doesn’t understand that pirating movies is illegal. It’s the biggest deal, because when they make unskippable
bullshit telling you that you’re not supposed to pirate things, it provides incentive for people to pirate things.
How fucking stupid are you, Hollywood? Criterion does not do that. They’re a good company. Check out their website. “Birdemic: shock and terror”, directed by
the legend known as James Nguyen. I saw this movie on a shelf at HMV one day and I was like…
I looked at the cover and I was like: “I gotta see this movie!” Watched it, pretty much in the best way I could watch it the
first time with a room full of friends and I think we were drunk. There was like seven people in my room.
I was still living in my parents’ basement, and… When I saw this movie, it was pretty… like, I think it’d just
gotten released on Blu-ray too, so I was happy to have seen it. I was happy to jump on it as a reviewer and kind of get
to it before it became, like, the next “The Room”, you know, before it became just that thing to review, so I’m glad that I have
some sort of integrity for that and I didn’t just jump on a bandwagon. “Black Dynamite”, I’ve bought this movie like
seven times, just because it’s so fucking funny. It makes a great gift. This christmas, give
the gift of “Black Dynamite”. I love this movie. This is… I would say the best parody movie ever made. Check it out. I don’t know, I don’t really
wanna spoil it. It’s so quotable, it’s so great. “Black Swan”. Some people say it’s a ripoff of an anime,
I think “Perfect Blue”, which I still haven’t seen. And I’ve seen shot-by-shot comparisons
of some parts. There’s definitely inspiration. However, Darren Aronofsky bought the rights to
that anime before making “Requiem for a dream”, so he still owned the rights before making this
movie, so I’m not sure I would call it a ripoff. If you own the rights to something and want
to reimagine certain parts of it into a movie, I’m not like… Like, I would have an issue with it if
they pretended like it was something completely original, and like, maybe they didn’t really advertise the fact
that there was some inspiration by another anime, but they certainly didn’t do anything illegal or unethical.
They own the rights to it, so I don’t see why that’s such a big deal. “Blow”. One of those movies that would
be better without the child actor. I bought this a long time ago.
It’s still pretty good, it’s decent. “Borat”, amazing satirical comedy.
If you think this movie is stupid… … I disagree with you, because it’s not. It’s very, very
intelligent. It’s stupid if you judge it on a surface level. I made a uh… a video on “Borat” and
“Bruno”. You should check it out. I might just add annotations every
time I mention one of these things, but I kinda wanted to do this Blu-ray collection
thing as just a short thing that doesn’t take forever. So I apologise if they’re not up. “Brazil”, directed by Terry Gilliam. I also bought the Criterion version, because the Criterion
version, like I said, buttloads of special features, and this is the movie I was talking about, where they show
you what could have been if the studio got their way. Entirely different ending, entirely different
opening sequence and the cut that they have for… The studio cut of the film was only ever aired,
like, during the holidays on TV or something. So Terry Gilliam still got his way and obviously it was
for the better. I love this movie. It’s a great distopian… It’s set around Christmas time, so it’s
a good Christmas movie, I guess. It’s a… you should check
it out. It’s great. Just do it. “Bronson”, if you want my detailed thoughts
on this one, check out my 2008 review. “Bruno”. Hilarious. Fantastic. If you wanna argue
with me, first watch my Bruno/ Borat analysis, because a lot of people think that this
is a lot worse than Borat, I disagree. Criterion: “Breaking the waves” by Lars von Trier. I already stated my gripes with parts
of this movie, like it’s not perfect, and I stated my gripes with it
in my “Nymphomaniac” review. Spoiler alert: “Nymphomaniac” is a piece of shit. I think it’s great. I would like to watch it again sometime soon.
I was really close to buying the uhm… Japanese Blu-ray, because Japan and South Korea and I think Taiwan… I think maybe Taiwan, too. I don’t remember.
Japan and South Korea for sure. … are Region A for Blu-ray and Region A is also
North America, so if you buy a Blu-ray from Japan… … you can watch it in a North American Blu-ray player. Just make sure that it actually has English subtitles
before you buy it. You can find that information out online. Also, heads up: “Spirited Away”,
they have a Blu-ray released in Japan. There’s also a Region B Blu-ray for
“Spirited Away” that came out recently I think, but I don’t think there’s any Region A
Blu-ray other than the one in Japan, so if you want “Spirited Away” on Blu-ray,
you can go to a website like CDJapan or… I think Amazon has some import options.
People are selling them on Ebay. I’m gonna wait a little for that one, because
it’s like eighty bucks for me, I don’t know. Maybe it’s because I’m in Canada and all the
shipping and import and what not. I don’t know. “Breaking the waves”, pretty awesome. Really depressing.
Only see it if you want to see a depressing movie. “Burn after reading”, fantastic.
Check it out in my 2008 review. “Cabin Fever”, hilarious.
Directed by Eli Roth. It’s really funny. And it tries to be funny, too.
“Cabin in the woods”. Along the same level, I guess,
not quite as gory as “Cabin Fever”. “Cabin in the Woods” parodies “Evil Dead”, it parodies,
like, every horror movie ever made, pretty much. It parodies, like, “The Ring”,
it parodies “Friday the 13th”, I guess. It’s a parody on the horror genre
and I think it works really well. Don’t take it too seriously, otherwise
you might not like it that much. “Caché”. No, it’s not “Cache”.
You see that? It’s called an “Accent Aigu”. So it’s not “Cache”, it’s “Caché”. My favorite director,
one of his best films. It is a thriller, I would check it out. This is… I know it looks like it’s
Region B, it’s actually Universal. On the back you can see ABC, so this is a Region Free
Blu-ray, basically. There’s only three Blu-ray regions. There’s like eight DVD regions, but
there’s only three Blu-ray regions. “Casablanca”, was given to me as a gift. I have still yet to
watch it. I would enjoy watching it, I just haven’t seen it yet. “Catfish”, it’s in my 2010 review if you
wanna hear my detailed thoughts on it. “Certified Copy”, should have been in my 2010
review, but it was in my 2011 review. And because… A lot of foreign and independent
films get released in really weird ways. They have multiple release dates, depending on the country,
etcetera, etcetera. Film Fest or limited release, etcetera. So this wound up in my 2011 review, just because
I didn’t actually see it in time from my 2010 review. But this movie really grew on me. I think it’s great.
I wanna check out some of Abbas Kiarostami’s earlier films, I wanna see things like “Close-Up” and…
what was it? Like, “Taste of Cherry”. Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing his other films. Was really good! “Changeling”. This is also Region Free, it
looks like Region B, but it’s Region Free. 2008 review if you wanna see my detailed
thoughts on that. I think it’s great. “Children of Men”, famous for its one take shots and
not doing, like, 40 cuts in 37 seconds, like “World War Z”, but doing one continuous take over the
span of what, like, at least five minutes, while there’s shit-tons of explosions and
special effects going on. It’s very, very well done. It’s a studio movie and it’s still fantastic. And by that, I mean, like, of course
studio movies can still be good. There’s a lot of studio movies in my
Blu-ray collection if you haven’t noticed. But… this is one where it’s clear that artistic integrity actually
prevailed, which is rare when you’re making a movie for a studio, because when a studio is funding you, they
often don’t like you to do things that are different, and if you come up to them with an idea and say something, like:
“I would like to do this”, they’ll come back at you and say: “Well, that isn’t like every succesful movie
we’ve released in the past fifteen years. Change it to make it like every succesful
movie we’ve released in the past fifteen years. We don’t care about art, we want to make money.” This is an instance where they were
able to make art and money. Thank you. And then he made “Gravity”
and it wasn’t so good. Oops! “Clockwork Orange”. Fantastic Stanley
Kubrick film. Highly recommend it. Great mix of horrific imagery
going along with classical music. I’m not sure how far you could trace that back.
It might be one of the first to really, I guess popularize it. Such a thing had been used in later films, like “Oldboy”. By the way, don’t watch 2013 “Oldboy”,
watch the good one, Please. I think 2003. “Conversations with Other Women”. One of the most disappointing Blu-ray’s
I’ve ever bought, because this movie… If you go on Youtube and search up the trailer, and possibly there might actually be an upload of
the entire movie on Youtube, maybe. I don’t know. There’s… what’s supposed to happen is the entire frame is
like the anamorphic widescreen. I think anamorphic, I don’t know. It’s like a widescreen film, but the
frame is split down the center, and on each half of the frame of widescreen,
you have two different camera’s, and so the movie was filmed with two camera’s
at once showing an A camera and a B camera. There was editing used involved. It wasn’t
all one continuous read-through that was shot, but a lot of the reactions that the actors
are having when talking to each other are actually reactions while they’re talking to each other,
instead of just pretending that the take is going sort of thing. Without that feature, like that’s basically the whole
point of the movie, is so that you can watch it like that. It’s an experimental way of filming and it worked
out pretty great. That’s the whole point of the movie. Every single Blu-ray release, and by that I mean it’s
only released on Blu-ray in Taiwan and Germany, and both of those… Instead of having the frame split
down the center, which is what the DVD release has, they used the shitty TV edit of the movie,
so the director supposedly made a TV edit, and he made it so that people
watching things in like four by three, which is, I guess, like, people
didn’t have widescreen TV’s when… This was 2007. I don’t know. I don’t even
fucking know why this happened, honestly. The director made a TV edit for the movie
and instead of having the two frames at once, they had just one frame at a time, so a regular
widescreen showing one character talking, and then one regular widescreen showing
the character’s reaction, etcetera, etcetera. It destroys the whole movie. I’m not even shitting you.
People wind up buying this Blu-ray, or watching a Blu-ray rip of it, and they watch it and they’re like: “This movie is
not all that great. Why are the reviews even decent? It’s like, it’s alright. Not that much happens, but it…” Like, they’re being exposed to a version of the film where
literally there’s not that much of a point to the movie, like, yes, it’s still a decent story this way,
but that’s all it is, it’s decent. With the original intent, that’s what the entire
script, movie, etcetera was designed around, was that method of filming, that was the
whole fucking point to the movie, but… They won’t sell it to you on Blu-ray for whatever reason.
Somehow, I don’t know how the director can sleep at night, but somehow that TV edit was the
only thing that made it to the Blu-ray. And it’s in widescreen anyway, so what the fuck?
Why does that even exist? It shouldn’t have been made, there should never have been an edit that went in direct opposition
to the director’s original vision for the film. It ruins it. Buy the DVD if you want to watch
this movie or watch a DVD rip. Whatever. Don’t touch anything that had to do with any of the
Blu-ray’s, because it’s shit. Otherwise, great movie. “Crank”. Hilarious, hilarious movie.
Really funny. Self-aware. It’s one of the prime examples for a movie that
you can call self-aware. It knows exactly what it is. Neveldine and Taylor are pretty great directors. I like the uhm…
kind of… the low frame rate that they used with their camera’s. “Crank 2” was pretty much just fan service, by the way. Like, they’re not objectively amazing movies.
They’re not, like, an Oscar winner. But… And I mean, even Oscar winners aren’t objectively
amazing. Let’s not get into that argument. They’re so self-aware, they try to be exactly what
they are and that, I think deserves something, and I enjoy them very much. These directors
will literally put the camera’s in danger. They will ride on the backs of motorcycles, like grab onto
the back of a motorcycle with a camera in their hand, on rollerblades to get certain shots. The camera will be, like,
up close, next to a wheel, like, waving… swaying back and forth, where, when they shoot a movie, they break shit-tons
of camera’s, shooting their movie, just to get the shots. They’re putting themselves in danger
to get the shots. It’s all super impressive, and I wish that more people could differentiate between a practical
effect and something that was done in a studio with a greenscreen, because it seems as though every time these guys make a
fucking movie, nobody appreciates what they do to get the shot. They are some of the most misunderstood
directors and people completely ignore every bit there is to appreciate
about the movies that they make. They don’t make amazing movies, they don’t
make amazing stories, they make fun movies. And fun is not objective, fun is extremely subjective, but there’s a lot to appreciate about
how they film it regardless, in my opinion. “Dance of Reality”, Alejandro Jodorowski’s
new movie. He still got it. Did a great job. Check it out if you wanna see something really weird that…
I mean, it’s really interpretable, it’s not a standard narrative. “Dancer in the Dark”. Like I said, Japanese Blu-ray’s are Region A.
This is the Japanese Blu-ray. Why do I have the Japanese Blu-ray? Because they didn’t release it on
Blu-ray anywhere but Japan. Why? It’s 1080i, but still… I mean, like,
that’s the best quality there is, I guess. Depressing. Really depressing movie. Check it out. “Dawn of the Dead”. Before George A. Romero ironically lost his brains. I just made that up. This is a really good movie. I’m gonna grab another stack. “Dawn of the Dead: Director’s cut”. No, not the same one
from George A. Romero, this one’s directed by Zack Snyder, and it has a strong and powerful independent female lead and
people still call him sexist, because he made “Sucker Punch”. It was his first film. It’s pretty decent. “Death Race 1 & 2” combo pack. It was cheaper to buy the
combo pack than it was to buy “Death Race 2” on its own. “Death Race 1”: not worth owning. “Death Race 2”: laughs forever, endless entertainment. One of the most unintentionally gay movies ever made.
So funny. Incredibly… OH GOD MY NOTES. Incredibly not self-aware… these are all my
notes for things that I’m making right now. Incredibly not self-aware, is what I was saying.
Really funny movie. Thanks, Roel. “The Descent”, original unrated cut,
AKA the only ending worth watching. Fuck the American ending. Fuck it, Jesus Christ. “Die Hard 1”, pretty clichéd, but not when it was made. So… it popularized what soon became clichés,
so this movie is responsible for a lot of clichés. I don’t think that a lot of the clichés in this movie were
clichés when this was made. It’s decently old, it’s pretty good. I think it kind of made a genre
in a sense. It’s a good movie. “Die Hard with a Vengeance”. Cheesy as fuck.
Notice how I skipped “Die Hard 2”. It’s because I don’t own it,
because it’s a piece of shit. “Die Hard with a Vengeance”.
Really cheesy. Cheesy as fuck. But… not so bad. Also… casting Jeremy Irons as Alan Rickman’s brother:
one of the best casting decisions I’ve ever seen in a movie. Like, that makes so much fucking sense. “The Dirties”. 93 out of 150 of these were ever
made, and yes it’s a Blu-ray, and I know it’s like a DVD case.
This is the Blu-ray: “It’s a Blu-ray!”. And uh… they wrote on it. And uhm… What’s hilarious about this case is…
it’s a direct parody… There are other cases that were made
for this movie, other designs for the Blu-ray. Maybe there are still some available on the website,
I don’t know how many people bought this movie. It’s good. I made a quickie for it if you wanna see it. This is a direct parody of the Criterion
Collection “Rosemary’s Baby” Blu-ray. My thoughts on “Rosemary’s Baby”: I haven’t seen
it in a while, but it’s fucking great. It’s really great. So I’ll talk… I’ll just leave that here for now. “The Dirties”. 93 out of 150. I like… I like collection physical media, especially when
it’s rare, and now I can say I have a collector’s item. Oops! It’s not sealed anymore! I ruined its value, haha! They actually… there’s a zip file that you can download from
their website of an audio commentary for the movie “Hook” in 1991. The director of this movie is so fucking young too. I think
he’s in his twenties, but he stars in this movie as a teenager, and he makes a really convincing teenager too.
It’s pretty great. I like it. I like it. You should watch it. Yes, unfortunately it’s a DVD case. Still fits on my shelf,
but it’s really funny that they parodied that cover. The other covers that I was about to mention: there’s
one that parodies the “Magnolia” Blu-ray cover, there’s one… there’s a few
different posters that they parody, and because of what’s in the movie and because the
characters in the movie are, like, film geeks, it makes sense, and there’s a lot of, like, references to other
films in the movie. It’s a film lover’s movie. Whether or not you love the film,
it’s made for people who love films. “District 9”. Yes, everybody in the comment section,
I know that this did the “Inception Bwhaaaah!” first, “Inception” popularized it, and no one is gonna know what you’re
talking about if you say the “District 9 Bwhaaaah!” or whatever. So yeah, this gets the credit for
doing it in its trailer and what not, but then “Inception” popularized it and there
was purpose to it happening in “Inception” too. There’s a cool Youtube video showing uhm… how the score for “Inception” compared to a… that
slow… a slowed down version of that Edith Piaff song that was used in the movie for them
to wake up. They’re very similar. So… I can’t… I don’t wanna say that “Inception”
really stole it, because there was so… Like, regardless of “District 9” existing, there was so
much purpose behind “Inception” having it anyway. So I’m willing to believe that “Inception” very well could
have independently wound up doing that anyway. It’s debatable. Anyway, “Diving Bell and the Butterfly”, fantastic movie.
It’s 2007, I think, so… that’ll be on my list. “Dogtooth”, it was on my 2010 list.
You can check that out. It’s disturbing, but also hilarious. “Doomsday”, a film by Neil Marshall,
the director of “The Descent”. Now, “The Descent” was a really great horror movie. “Doomsday”… It’s really fun, in my opinion. It’s not… like,
it’s dumb. It’s stupid as fuck. But it’s mo… I don’t know how to describe it.
He had a lot of fun making it, that’s for sure. It’s one of those movies that I can put on if there’s going
to be people over that I know won’t shut up during a movie. So, like, if everyone is talking during the movie, nothing will be
missed, and it’s… like, what’s visually happening is kinda entertaining. “Drag me to Hell”. I really like it, it’s a callback to Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead”
trilogy in terms of form and presentation and humor. And if you think about it, it’s secretly a
movie about a girl with an eating disorder. There’s a lot of subtext, there’s
a lot of clues towards that. I think there’s an article online…
kind of explaining it. Maybe I might make a video on it someday,
but I think the information is already kinda out. So look it up. It’s really cool,
if you’ve seen the movie. I guess I… I don’t know if that’s really
a spoiler. I wouldn’t call it a spoiler. It might ruin some chances to interpretly… independently…
independently interpret it themselves. Oops. “Drive”. You all know about “Drive”. “Drawn Together The Movie”. Very childish humor. I enjoy “Drawn Together”. I know it’s not good,
but it’s funny to me. It’s really funny. And the audio commentary joke in the movie that you don’t even
have to turn the audio commentary on to witness, that was the best part. “Eastern Promises”. I still haven’t seen it.
It came in a three-pack of Blu-ray’s. There was other good movies in it.
I still haven’t seen it. “Elena”. Region B. It doesn’t exist on Region A Blu-ray.
If you want to watch a high quality HD file of this movie, and you don’t own a Region B Blu-ray
player or can’t afford one, you’re a criminal. You’re a criminal and you’re not allowed. We don’t
want to sell you what you wanna buy. You’re a criminal. “Eldorado”. I talked about this in my 2008 review. This is
Region A, I believe, or Region Free, so no issues there. However, the spine of this is the exact opposite of the spine
of every single other one of my Blu-ray’s, pretty much. So that pisses me off as an OCD degenerate. “El Topo”, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s other movie that
I haven’t seen in a while, but I remember really liking. “Enter the Void”, talked about it in my 2010 list. It was
pretty high up. Definitely check it out. It’s a little fucked up. “Escape from tomorrow”, a Blu-ray that shouldn’t
exist of a film that reasonably shouldn’t exist. They filmed the entire thing in Disneyland,
without Disneyland’s permission. I made a Quickie on it. I enjoy the movie, it’s I guess a guilty pleasure,
’cause parts of it are a little sloppy and kinda shit, but after watching the special features
on this, and learning that basically, if they were even to show up another day at Disneyland,
like, they would have been kicked out anyway, because they were definitely figuring out what they were
doing after they had been there day after day filming shit. After learning that, it makes the shitty
parts of this movie a little more forgivable, like, there’s, like… not even a minute
worth of scenes that are, like, weird greenscreen when you would think, like,
there’s no reason for them to be greenscreen. It’s because when you try to
reshoot something like that… … and you can’t be in the location you need to
be to reshoot it, you might just greenscreen it. So it’s self-aware, it knows what it is.
It’s not pretending to be, like, a fantastic… a movie with fantastic cinematography
or anything like that. I enjoyed it. Check it out. “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”,
one of my favorite movies of all time. Directed by Michel Gondry and written by
my favorite screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. “Evil Dead” Blu-ray. Most worthless Blu-ray of my entire collection.
It’s a piece of shit. I want my money back. They advertised this movie as the movie
from 1980 something. It’s not. It’s not. It’s not. It’s not the same movie if you digitally
edit over shit-tons of your movie. They George Lucassed it, so in the DVD version of this,
which is much more valuable, much better movie. Don’t buy the remastered DVD, if it has like
the same cover as this, don’t even go for it. The DVD you wanna buy is one where if you
look at the special features on the back or online, you can probably learn about special
features before you buy them, there’s an audio commentary by Bruce Campbell,
and it’s a solo audio commentary. There’s also a commentary by Sam Raimi
and I think Rob Tapert. So they have their own commentaries, there’s
two tracks, one of them is Bruce Campbell solo. He actually won an award for that commentary. It’s hilarious.
It’s the best commentary I’ve ever listened to. It’s so fucking funny. And the majority of not only his commentary and
Sam Raimi/ Rob Tapert’s commentary, he’s talking about… …parts of the movie that were goofs, so in one shot, you can
see Rob Tapert hiding in the bushes, he’s not supposed to be there. In one shot, you can see one of the tubes coming
out of a face wound that’s spurting the blood. In one shot, you can see the square of a mat cut out
of the moon that’s so ridiculously big next to the cabin. They decided that for the Blu-ray release, for the fans of this movie that wanted
to see the 1080p version of this movie, you know, a remastered version, a film restauration,
like a 4K or 8K whatever of the actual film, they decided that they would
not show the actual film. They decided that they would not give
you the option to watch the actual film. They decided that they would
digitally edit over so much of it. And for people that have never seen this
movie before, maybe they might not notice, but to have your entire two tracks of audio commentary
on your DVD be filled with references to those mistakes, and references to that being a part of the movie being
made and talking about why those mistakes were made, and talking about the production of your
movie and then just shitting on all of that, and saying like: “No, didn’t happen.” No! Let me watch the version of it. You restored
it onto film before you made those edits. Where’s that version? Why won’t you sell it to me?
I don’t want this piece of shit. It’s worthless. It doesn’t have the same commentary anymore.
The commentary that they have is… “New commentary with Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert
and Bruce Campbell” all in the same commentary. And I haven’t listened to the whole thing, but I can’t imagine they’re making any references
to the mistakes that were digitally edited out. They fucking George Lucassed it. I lost respect
for Sam Raimi because of this Blu-ray release. I’m not sure how much of it is his fault, but you
should assume that a Blu-ray with however many, like what, 60 gigabytes that you
can fit on there, maybe 50. You could fit both versions of the movie on there.
Don’t fucking bullshit people like that. Don’t pretend it’s the same movie. It’s not
the same movie. You made a new movie. You made a new movie using the
film from an older movie. Fuck you. “Evil Dead 2”. Nothing wrong with
this Blu-ray. It’s a funny movie. “Fantastic Mr. Fox”. Great movie. Fox Searchlight, one of the worst distributors
of all time was responsible for distributing this movie. For those of you who can’t watch
“Birdman” in theaters right now, you can thank Fox Searchlight for
their terrible shitty distribution job. Although “Birdman”, yes, it got a wider
release, Fox Searchlight decides that… … a movie has to have overwhelming attendance,
in order for it to have a decent, decent release. So for movies like “Birdman”, like this,
“Fantastic Mr. Fox”, like “Sunshine”, “Slumdog Millionaire”, I think even “Napoleon Dynamite”.
Those last two obviously got huge because of Oscars. And I guess… no, “Napoleon Dynamite”
didn’t win an Oscar, it got huge on its own. So, “Napoleon Dynamite” had overwhelming
attendance, and then Fox Searchlight said: “Okay, NOW we can distribute it to lots of theaters.
NOW we’ll make an advertisement for this movie.” Did anybody remember seeing many advertisements
for “Fantastic Mr. Fox” at all, or “Sunshine”? When “Sunshine” came out, it was in, like,
one theater for a fucking week, you know. Fox Searchlight is the worst. If you are a
filmmaker and you make an independent film, and you are getting bids from studios to distribute
your film, do not go with Fox Searchlight, unless you are absolutely confident that
your tendence will be amazing for the film. Otherwise, they don’t give a shit about you,
they won’t make an ad for you, . there’s all these insanely marketable movies,
like “Birdman”, like “Fantastic Mr. Fox”, like “Sunshine” that people would
see if they knew about them, but people don’t know about the movie
unless you make an ad for the movie. People don’t know about it unless you put as
many trailers for it as other movies, you know. You’ve got to put trailers out there, you’ve
got to fucking do your job, Fox Searchlight. They’re so marketable and your losing money.
You’re losing money! I’m gonna grab another stack. “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”,
also Criterion version. Criterion version is better. Any questions? I don’t know. I feel like you have to know what it’s like
to do drugs to enjoy the movie to its fullest extent, I guess. Still, pretty great movie, regardless. Although I’d imagine
that it’s not as enjoyable if you’ve never done drugs. “Frankenhooker” on Blu-ray. Hilarious movie. Watch it.
Self-aware. 1980’s, etcetera. “Frankenhooker”. Very self-descriptive. You kinda know
what movie you’re getting into when you watch “Frankenhooker”. “From Dusk Till Dawn”. Very… first half of the movie is not at all like the
second half of the movie. Just saying. It’s pretty good. “Fargo”, great movie. Coen Brothers. “Fight Club”. Stop asking me about “Fight Club”. It’s a good
movie. It’s a little overrated. It’s really good. You know, there’s certain movies like this.
Oh, Jezus. [burp] Excuse me. This is like… you can buy
this for like six bucks now. That’s a piracy deterrent, is reasonable prices.
That’s all I’m gonna say. “Full Metal Jacket”, Stanley Kubrick.
Great movie. You all know Stanley Kubrick. “Funny Games”, kind of a polarizing movie, but I mentioned
a lot about it in my 2008 review. This is the US version. So I guess the full title is “Funny Games US”, but it
doesn’t say US on this cover for whatever reason, probably because it was sold.
Wait, no, I guess this… I don’t know, this… I guess this isn’t…
the US Blu-ray, this looks like… When you see something like this 18
symbol… I’m covering it with my thumb. 18 symbol, it usually means it’s from the UK, ’cause
I think PEGI 18 is their thing. What does PEGI even mean? Anyway, this… this is Region Free. All regions, anyway. “Gamer”, from the people that made “Crank”. Hilarious, funny movie.
Don’t take it seriously. If you see a movie with a Lloyd Kaufman from “Troma”
cameo in it, it’s not supposed to be taken seriously. This has a cameo of Lloyd Kaufman in the movie. Lloyd Kaufman, famous for making
really shitty low-budget movies that are funny that you’re not
supposed to take seriously. You are not supposed to take this seriously. Very much like “Doomsday”, it’s a
movie that you can enjoy watching if you’re in a room of people that
won’t shut the fuck up anyway. It’s one of those perfect movies that you can show a crowd
of people where you don’t have to force people to pay attention. They can just ignore the whole thing and it’ll…
like, you’ll still get the movie, you know. OH GOD. “Gattaca”. Before… What’s his name? Andrew Niccol. Before he lost his brains. “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”, “Ghost Rider 2”. Yes, I bought the Blu-ray.
Only when it became a little cheaper. This is the one movie… By the way, whatever I said in my Quickie,
I retract it down to a six out of ten. And even six out of ten… people are
gonna say is way too high for this movie. This movie… same directors as “Gamer” and “Crank”.
You are not supposed to take it seriously. This… if you look at the featurettes before
this movie came out, which I was all about… Sorry, I’m trying to get these little plastic things off,
I don’t know why it’s still on there. If you look at the featurettes before this movie came out,
when they’re talking about using Nicolas Cage, they’re talking about using Nicolas Cage
as in the “Vampire’s Kiss” Nicolas Cage. They’re using Nicolas Cage as: “Haha, it’s
a funny movie, ’cause Nic Cage is in it.” They’re purposefully going for aspects of,
like, cheese in the comedy, and… It’s… I feel like it’s just really misunderstood,
because, again, what I was saying with their movies… The shot near the beginning of
the film, where the dude is… I think they’re on a mo… someone’s on
a motorcycle or something. Anyway… Some guy gets thrown off of a cliff and the
camera is behind the guy on the cliff. Literally. You as an audience member are falling backwards
off the cliff, watching this guy as he’s shooting… … and most people assume that that was done
in a studio with a greenscreen and it wasn’t. They literally fucking had them, the stuntman and the camera
operator, which was the actual director. One of the two directors. They had them both flying over a cliff.
Obviously, they had harnasses and what not, but they were actually doing the stunts and so many people
see these stunts and think that it’s so fabricated, but it’s not. Another part about this movie that’s
so much better than the first… … is they actually got Nicolas cage to do
the MoCap. I guess you could call it MoCap. They got him to perform as the Ghost Rider, and so all of
Nicolas Cages nuances and quirkiness that there is to him, and all of his, like, “Haha” funny Nicolas Cageness, he got
to actually act and he got to actually perform the Ghost Rider. If you look at the first movie, so
fucking shitty CG. The Ghost Rider… The skull… skeleton is just like “All outta mercy!”
and it’s on a… it’s like on a hinge, there’s no human characteristics to its movement whatsoever.
They didn’t even really use MoCap, it seemed like it was all just… Like, there was no MoCap involved in the first movie. In this one,
Ghost Rider so much more intimidating in the way he walks. Yes, it’s a shit movie. But it’s self-aware and it
knows it’s shit. It’s not… it’s not good, you know. Like, I can call this a guilty pleasure, but to call it
out on things that it’s going for is I think unfair. And in before people say that this ruins my credibility,
because I’m defending this movie in any way, even though I’m saying it’s not really good. But I’m
defending it, because they’re misunderstood directors. “The Ghost Writer” by Roman Polanski.
Check out my 2010 review. By the way, “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance”,
not making my best of the year list, just saying. So don’t act as though it’s, like, something I
stand by as a film, like the best movie of all time. No, I enjoy watching it, and I think that there’s
unfair criticism when it comes to the movie, and a lot of people don’t even
understand what they’re watching. No, it’s not, like, too intelligent, it’s just like…
nobody actually sees the effort that goes into the camera work and the stunts that
they do in their movies and it pisses me off. “Grand Piano”. Guilty Pleaure. Same… this is written
by the guy who then wrote and directed “Whiplash”, which is one of the best films
that came out this year, 2014. So this is pretty good. It’s… check out the trailer, you’ll know
what you’re getting into. It’s not gonna be on my best of the year list. “Grindhouse”. Complete with fake trailers and what not. Yayuh. I watched this movie so many fucking times in theaters,
and by movie I mean movies, ’cause it was a double feature. I watched it so many fucking times in theaters dragging different
friends along and it was such a great theater experience. I wanna watch the Blu-ray at some point
and have some friends over or something, so I can kind of relive it,
even though it’s not really in theaters. “Halo Legends”. There was a point in time where I would
just anything that said “Halo” on it. This was the first Blu-ray that said “Halo”
on it, so I bought it before I watched it. It was alright, it wasn’t really good.
I’m never gonna watch it again, ever. “Happy Feet”. I made my analysis video on this if you wanna
check it out. Talked about the anti-religious symbolism, etcetera. Good movie. It’s good for a kids movie, it’s not,
like, amazing. I think that the music was well done. Some people hate it, I… whatever.
It’s not, like, an art film. This is an art film. “Her”, directed by Spike Jonze. Amazing movie from 2013. Check out my 2013
list if you wanna see more thoughts on that. And my 2013 list will be out in April of 2015. If you
don’t know why I wait that long to make a yearly list, check out my 2011 review, where my number one movie
literally came out a month before I released the video. So it came out on Blu-ray, like a month
before I released the video, so that’s why. “The Holy Mountain”, my favorite movie of all time.
Check it out. I would like to make an analysis video on it, but first I’m making one for “Synecdoche, New York”
which is my second favorite movie of all time. “The Host”. Not the bad one, the good one.
[Korean pronunciation] directed by… Boon… Bong Joon-ho, I always say Boon Jong-ho,
it’s Boon… fuck. Bong Joon-ho. He’s a great director, every movie
he’s made has been great. Debatably, “Snowpiercer” is great. I didn’t think
it was that great. A lot of people think it’s great. There’s … great parts about it, I just…
I didn’t like… a lot of the cheesiness. “Hot Fuzz”. You all know “Hot Fuzz”. Go check it out.
It’s a great movie. Great action parody movie. “House”, this is one of those movies where
I checked it out based on the cover alone. Now I have a T-shirt with this on it as well.
I’m considering getting the poster off the Criterion website. I mentioned this in my “Underrated Horror Movies”
review at the end of it, and it’s really fucked up. It’s quite
the trip and I would recommend it. “Hunger” by Steve McQueen.
His first feature length film. Same director that I was talking about
that directed “12 years a slave”, and I would highly recommend it.
I talked about it in my 2009 review. “The Hunt”, my ssssss… This was 2012, wasn’t it? Second favorite
film of 2012. I think it’s 2012. Yeah, it’s 2012. Second favorite movie of 2012. Go check it out. It was a little difficult to track down a
Blu-ray of this for Region A, but I got it online. If you’re wondering where to buy Blu-ray’s for your region or
where to buy hard to find Blu-ray’s, always go on the Internet. Physical stores don’t fucking carry Blu-ray’s
anymore and the selection is shit. “I Am Love”. Check out my 2010 review to
hear my thoughts on it, but I really liked it. “Ichi the Killer”. Really messed up. Really messed up. Takashi Miike… he’s hit or miss.
He’s really hit or miss. “Audition” was same director.
This is a lot more campy and not as serious. “Incendies”, in my 2010 list.
To check it out if you want. Yeah, not much to say about that. “Inglourious Basterds” and it’s spelled wrong. However you wanna spell it Quintie. Quintie…
I wanna call him that from now on. Quintie. It was good. “It’s All Gone Pete Tong”. Underrated, I would say.
It didn’t really get that much recognition. Anybody who is familiar with, like,
DJ’ing would enjoy this movie. It’s not about Pete Tong.
Pete Tong’s name is in the title. I don’t think Pete Tong was really…
Was he in the movie? Like, it’s just one of those, like,
small cameos, I don’t remember. It’s an inspirational comedy, but it’s not… It doesn’t…
It’s not, like, extremely light-hearted in its presentation. There’s a lot of heavy drug use going on with some of
the characters and it’s really funny. I enjoy the movie. “I’ve Loved You So Long”,
I talked about this in my 2008 review. “Jackass 3” because I can enjoy movies that
don’t have intelligent substance also. It’s funny. “Jackass 2” was easily the best one, but that one is
not on Blu-ray. If you wanna watch “Jackass 2” in HD… I think there’s, like, a 720p Itunes download
or something, but they won’t sell me the Blu-ray. It exists in HD, but I’m not allowed to own a Blu-ray of it. “The Kid with a Bike”, that movie I was talking about, my favorite
movie of 2011. This Blu-ray came out in I think March of 2013. Yeah, March of 2013. And I release
my best of the year reviews in April. And yeah, you can say it’s accessive,
but seriously, I would… Like, my favorite fucking movie of the year and I wouldn’t
have had a Blu-ray copy of it before the list was made, and I like to you use footage for my reviews.
So how can I do that without a Blu-ray? “Kill Bill: Volume 1”. I love “Kill Bill”. One of my favorite Quentin Tarantino movies. I judge them
both as one movie and it was supposed to be one movie anyway. I don’t even… like, even judging them as separate movies, I’m not
even sure I would say that the first one is better than the second one. There’s just two… like, they feel so connected.
They don’t feel like two separate movies. Like, they feel the same and my rating
for them should be the same. I’ll grab another stack. “Kill Bill: Volume 2” I just talked about Volume 1
and therefore I just talked about Volume 2. “Killing Them Softly”. Why do some
people think that this is a shit movie? Like, I get it, it feels disingenuous based on the
poster and maybe, like, the advertisements, maybe you thought that you’re
getting a different movie. I don’t see any, like, real objective reason not to like it.
I still wanna see Andrew Dominik’s first movie: “The Assassination of Jesse James
by the Coward Robert Ford”. Still haven’t seen that yet. I was actually an
extra in it. I was an extra in a Brad Pitt movie, ’cause that was filmed at Edmonton and I used
to live there, it was filmed in Fort Edmonton Park. Yeah, that’s in Alberta, Canada. I don’t live
there anymore. Anyway… I was, like, thirteen. I don’t think I made it in the final cut of the film.
My parents watched it at one point and they said they didn’t see me. I was only there for one day of filming. So I… I don’t know.
I walked past the camera a few times, I know that, but I can’t tell what part of it they used, I was pretty
far away from the action taking place. Anyway… It was a cool experience to be on set, on the set of a movie
as an extra. Free food and what not. I still haven’t seen it. I feel like it’s weird that I was in
a movie and I haven’t seen it. I’ll get to it, it’s like, what, 2007? I”m making my
2007 list next year at some point, so I’ll get to it. “Kung Fu Panda”. A lot of… you know, it’s not as bad
as a lot of animated kids movies, and I appreciate that they actually
had some good fight scenes in it. Very rarely do you see a martial
arts oriented animated kids movie, and, like, even if there’s implied martial arts or fighting
in an animated kids movie, it’s never actually done well, and in this movie, like, they actually gave a shit and decided
to have some really cool cinematography and really uhm… I guess, like, crisp and effective sound effects
and just… the presentation was really nice. I don’t like how one of the characters, like,
died and kind of didn’t die. That was weird. It was good. I’ll watch it again. “The Lego Movie”, one of the biggest surprises of 2014.
Did not expect that this movie would be so great. Check it out. It’s got social commentary,
it’s very well-written. It’s great for everybody. Hey, included with my digital purchase is Ultra Violet.
“Redeem code by June 17th, 2017”, because you buying the Blu-ray when the price lowers
means that you’re not allowed to have a digital copy. You have to rip it from the Blu-ray onto your computer,
but if you do that, you’re a criminal. Fuck you. “Leon: The Professional”. Some weird… I guess… pedophilic undertones,
is that the right word, pedophilic? It’s a good movie, though. Natalie Portman,
like, gave a fantastic child performance. Children always fucking suck, but Natalie Portman
was a really good child actor in that movie. “Let The Right One In”, in my 2008 review.
You can listen to what I have to say about that. “The Lion King” my favorite
animated movie of all time. It’s my any mood movie, I can be in any mood in
the world, I could be sad, I could be happy, etcetera, and it will still be an enjoyable movie and I’ll still love it. It’s,
like, I got a bit of a bias nostalghia, or otherwise, that, I guess… You know, yes, I’m a little biased
when it comes to this movie, but… although it’s not perfect, I think that it’s
the best animated kids movie ever made. A lot of you might disagree and say that some Pixar movies are.
I disagree. I think that “The Lion King” is the best, and… Not just the actual songs that were written by Elton John
and Time Rice, but the actual score by Hans Zimmer is possibly the best score he’s ever made. The actual…
not the songs with lyrics, but the songs in the movie, the… You know! Just download the soundtrack.
Animation quality is fantastic, especially for 1994. The casting of Jeremy Irons
as Scar was also fantastic. If you could give an award for voice acting at
the Oscars, he would have gotten it, because… Like, every character sounded, like, more or
less like a human being that was playing… that was being visually represented as a lion,
whereas Jeremy Irons’ Scar in his vocal performance, there was so much ferocity to it,
there was… there were so many little uhm… He just did a fantastic job. Just pay attention
to his actual vocal performance in it. Every single actor was cast extremely appropriately and
any issues that I have with the film are extremely minimal. “Lord of the Rings”, the trilogy, not the extented trilogy.
I don’t know if I’ll ever watch the extented trilogy, ’cause I’m happy with the trilogy.
I’m happy with it. I like it. I don’t know if I wanna watch the
extented versions, it seems like too much. They’re already pretty long. “Lord of War”,
before Andrew Niccol lost his brains. One of Nicolas Cage’s better movies for sure.
He’s pretty good in it. Jared Leto is also pretty good. “The Man from Earth”. Might be in my 2007 list. “From an acclaimed writer of the
original “Star Trek” and “The Twilight Zone comes a story that transcends both
space and…”, I mean “time and space”. Who was the writer? Jerome Bixby. So yeah, he was… he’s an acclaimed writer of
the original “Star Trek” and “The Twilight Zone”, and he made a really good dialogue driven movie.
The presentation is a little ehhh, like, it… On a surface level, it seems like shit. It really does,
and watching it, it’s like TV quality actors and the, like… If you don’t give it a chance, you might just turn it off within the first
five minutes, ’cause it seems, like, a little cheesy in its presentation. The cam… Like, there’s nothing
really to the cinematography, but the movie is so incredibly well-written
and it’s so dialogue-based anyway, that cheesiness from the performances,
you can kind of overlook that, and… It’s one of the more… It’s one of the
best written movies ever, I think. I don’t know, I have to watch it again, recently.
There’s not too much of a point to owning it on Blu-ray, although scratch protection! Awh yeah!
You can’t ruin it unless you try. Like I said, the camera quality isn’t that great, but it’s
a worth a watch. It’s worth watching more than once even. It’s a really cool story to watch unfold and it’s… pretty
much the whole movie is just people in a room talking. And there aren’t that many movies
that have successfully pulled that off. “Manhattan”, was given to me as a gift. Still haven’t
watched it. I’m a horrible person with no respect. I would like to watch it.
Woody Allen, right? “Martyrs”. This Blu-ray has English subtitles, and I’m happy about that, ’cause the first time I bought
this movie, it was on Ebay and it did not have English subtitles. And so then… I had a French movie
that I couldn’t watch with English subtitles. This version didn’t exist, so I had to wait a while for this
version to come out, otherwise DVD was pretty much the only option. I’m pretty sure at the time DVD was the only
option if you wanted to have English subtitles. So… torrenting that movie, even though
I bought it. That’s illegal! So I didn’t do it. By the way, extremely disturbing movie. Check it out if you
wanna be disturbed. It was on my “Underrated Horror Movies” list. “Mary and Max”, from my 2009 list. One of my favorite animated
movies, honestly. It’s one that… it’s not really for kids. It’s not extremely profane, but it’s not really
for kids and it’s really emotional. It’s stylistic. Maybe they played that one song a little too many times,
but I think it’s great and you should check it out. “Matrix Collection”. I really love the first movie and I’m trying to find
a moment in time where I can revisit the sequels, because in my memory, watching them as,
like, a fifteen year old, maybe. I don’t know. In my memory, the sequels don’t seem that bad and I understand
that they don’t go for the same thing as the original movie. Maybe I’ll watch them again more recently and hate them as much
as everybody else does, but in my memory they’re not that bad. So I kinda want to revisit them soon,
so I bought all of them again. “The Animatrix” Blu-ray is on there too.
I love “The Animatrix”. Out of every kind of movie that is, like,
an anthology anime movie that I’ve seen, like the “Halo: Legends” thing is
an anthology anime sort of thing. “Animatrix”, probably the best one out there,
in my opinion. It’s definitely worth checking out. “Memento”. One of my favorite movies ever. It was my favorite
movie when I was like… seventeen or eighteen, maybe. It was my favorite movie and uhm… I guess it’s bumped down a few spots,
’cause I’ve just enjoyed other movies more since then, but “Memento” is fantastic and I love the way it’s shot, I love the
chronology, I love the purpose towards the decisions made in the film, I love the purpose towards the black and white versus
color scenes and the order in which they show up in the film. I like it, and the fact that they showed it like that,
not just black and white, but the different chronology, the fact that they showed it like that, it could have happened
in any movie, but it had the most purpose in this movie, where the main character suffers from a
condition where he has no short-term memory. So I like seeing things with purpose, when there’s a decision being
made that’s incredibly different from what is standard to a film. It means the most when there’s a reason
behind it, and it’s not just ’cause, like: “I’m Lars von Trier, making ‘Nymphomaniac’.
Look at these numbers appearing on the screen.” There’s relevance to it, but I’m not gonna explain it. Not even
sure I understand it, but I’ll just say that it was on purpose. “Memories of Murder” by Bong Joon-ho, and…
that’s all I remember it from now on. I haven’t finished this movie, but I bought
it because I love his other movies so much, and because it was an import
from South Korea and… you know, if a movie is that poorly distributed to begin with,
then I might not be able to buy it in the future. It has English subtitles, so you just gotta, like,
guess what menu option means what in the but, and then figure out how to play the movie. Also, there’s usually
options, like the triangle button on the PS3 will just let you… It’ll show the subtitle list anyway. I didn’t stop watching it ’cause I didn’t like it.
It was just, like, I was tired. It was one of those times where I probably shouldn’t
have started a movie when it was too late. But thankfully, you know, chapter selections exist,
unless it’s a David Lynch DVD that you bought. I’ll never forgive him for that.
I’m gonna grab another stack. Alright, I’m gonna do this one on its own, ’cause it’s, like,
the corner stone and holding a lot of weight on my shelf, because there’s a flimsy little piece of cardboard,
so now those other Blu-ray’s are holding that weight, so I’m just gonna put this
one back before I grab more. “The Michael Haneke Collection”.
My favorite director, obviously I would buy this. Unfortunately, Region B, so it was only released in France,
hopefully it gets released other places too. You can buy it off Amazon. So… the biggest perk towards getting this
collection is… it has all his film on Blu-ray. All of his films had been on Blu-ray before
this point. Before this point, it was like… “Caché”, “Funny Games US”, “The White Ribbon”, “Amour”
and… I don’t remember if there were any other ones. I guess I could just look on this
one and just know from memory. Yeah, I think those were the only
ones that were on Blu-ray before. So now, his entire catalogue of older movies
that I’ve already seen except for “Le Château”. Now they’re in HD, and I like seeing things in HD,
and the biggest selling point for Blu-ray’s for me was when I was at a friend’s house that had a Blu-ray
player and I was watching “Requiem for a Dream”, and I noticed a tear on
Ellen Burstyn’s face that… Burstyn…? I don’t remember
how to pronounce her last name. It was on her face and it kinda changed the context to
the scene to me, ’cause on the DVD version on my shit TV, I never noticed that tear on her face, and so I noticed
it when I was watching the Blu-ray, I’m like: “The scene has kind of a different meaning to
me now. I feel like I have more context to it, and I feel like I’m now seeing everything the
director intented for me to see in the frame.” That’s how you should always watch a movie,
is the way that the director wants to show it. So that’s why I love Blu-ray and that’s why I love that
his films, all of his older ones are finally on Blu-ray. However, I’m going to issue a disclaimer about this: First off, if you don’t have a Region B Blu-ray player,
you’re a criminal if you wanna watch these in HD, you’re not allowed. So for whatever fucking reason,
it pisses me off a little, a lot of these movies don’t actually have English
subtitles, and I knew this before buying it, but the ones that don’t have English subtitles for this
collection are also released on Blu-ray by themselves. However, there’s one fucking movie in this collection that does
not have English subtitles that does not have a Blu-ray release, and that’s “The Piano Teacher”
and it’s the favorite movie… my favorite movie of his that had not been
released on Blu-ray before this collection. So if I want to watch it in HD, I need to
download a 1080p Blu-ray rip of the movie, that, if you look online, already has the English subtitles
from the DVD release already attached to them. If I want to watch the movie I bought with English
subtitles… English subtitles existed, I had it on DVD. I don’t know what’s so hard about that, is it a licensing thing?
Don’t you already own the rights to license the movie? Why would you own the rights to license it… Why would you own a
license to distribute the movie but not the subtitle file for it? No one has a copyright on
the file that they wrote. Maybe, like, you gotta give proper credit or something,
I don’t know why they would do that. Like, every single fucking movie on here that doesn’t have
English subtitles has English subtitles in a DVD release. So I’m a little bit pissy about that, I wish that they would release
“The Piano Teacher” as a Blu-ray, so I can watch the Blu-ray, and that I don’t have to download a 12GB 1080p rip
of someone doing the simplest task in the world, and just taking the subtitle file from
the DVD and putting it on there. My favorite director though,
so obviously I bought it. I wanna have another marathon of his movies.
I watched most of his movies in the same 24 hours, because I’d watched enough of his movies, like, a few
of them to know, like: “Holy shit, this guy is fantastic!” and so then, I ordered all those DVD off of Ebay,
except “The Seventh Continent”, which I didn’t think had a stand alone DVD,
it might not have, I don’t remember. Not “The Seventh Continent”. Fuck, what is that movie?
“The Castle”, “Das Schloß”, “Le Château”. Anyway, to go with this, one of my subscribers
who lives in Vienna, messaged me on Reddit, saying that he saw my favorite director at a café and
that would have been the end of the conversation, but since I realised that the message was sent… not very… Like,
was sent recently, like in the past, like, five minutes of me reading it, I told him to go up to him and get a signature,
an autograph for me, and he did, and uh… This is the autograph of my favorite director that
got mailed to me, and I’m really happy about that, so thank you, Alexander. I don’t know if there’s
an Austrian way to pronounce your name. It says “Adam Johns” instead
of my whole name, so… Anyway, I’ve checked out the other autographs that he’s
given of people holding it up to the camera and what not, and it looks really fucking legit. I don’t think I was
trolled and the fact that I asked him to go do it, and he didn’t message me with that idea gives, I guess, some validity
to it, and he seems like a nice guy, I don’t think he would do that. But I’m happy about it. I hope that I get to
meet him someday, but unfortunately, I mean… He doesn’t have that much time left, and I don’t think I’m
gonna be in Austria anytime soon. I’m gonna grab another stack. “Cosi Fan Tutte”, I’m pronouncing this wrong, guaranteed.
It’s an opera, stage directed by my favorite director, and so uh… I bought it, ’cause I’ll buy anything that’s associated with him,
because he’s my favorite director. Haven’t seen it yet. So I’m looking forward to that. I’ll watch
it in my next Michael Haneke marathon. “Milk”. It was pretty good. It wasn’t amazing, but I bought it
because I worked at Blockbuster and it was really cheap to buy. Best piracy deterrent, honestly, is just reasonable
prices and easy accessibility and proper distribution. Piracy goes down when you
do those things, just FYI. “Moon”, great film directed by Duncan Jones.
It’s in my 2009 list if you wanna hear more about it. Duncan Jones is also David Bowie’s son.
He also directed “Source Code”, which has one of the most disappointing
endings ever filmed in an entire movie ever. And by disappointing, I don’t mean depressing for the characters,
I mean, it was a really shitty ending to an otherwise pretty good movie. He’s directing the new “Warcraft” movie. It’s being
filmed in Vancouver. I’ll see it. I’ll just check it out. “Moonrise Kingdom”. This is really cheap right now,
so I got this one recently, ’cause it was reallly cheap. 2012, I guess. It was on my 2012 list. Wes Anderson. “Monsters Inc.” pretty good for a Pixar movie.
Oh, Jesus! I mean, it’s one of their better ones. I bought it. I worked at Blockbuster when I bought it. So it was like, a rental copy, so it’s like,
“Disc 1” but no “Disc 2”. Whatever. I remember though, on the
special features, ’cause I had the… I rented the DVD when it came out
with my parents, and I just lost my shit, ’cause on the special features it had a Japanese segment
of, like, Mike and Sully and Boo for like a TV promo, but instead of “Boo”, it was “Beh”, and I just found it to
be the funniest fucking thing on the planet when I was like… How old was I when this came out?
If this came out in like, what, 200…1? It had to have been 2001 or something. Like, this Blu-ray
says 2009, but that’s ’cause it got released on Blu… Yeah, 2001, Academy Awards for their short. I don’t… I don’t fucking know. I’m not
gonna talk about this. This is wasting time. “Mother”, directed by Bong Joon-ho. Great movie. I also talked
about this in my 2009 review. “Mysterious Skin”, finally on Blu-ray.
I never thought it would get a Blu-ray release. I’m surprised as fuck that
it got a Blu-ray release. Fantastic movie. Joseph Gordon-Levitt in one of his,
like, earliest roles. Still does a great job. It’s really disturbing. It’s not a movie you
wanna watch with your parents kinda thing, and there’s a lot of, like, gay shit going on. But it’s really good. Really, really well made and uh… Same director as “Smiley Face”, even though those movies,
this and “Smiley Face” are, like, completely different movies. Speaking of “Smiley Face”, no Blu-ray release,
but there’s an HD rip of a… I guess an HD TV screening. so if you wanna watch it in HD, you’re criminal. We’re not
gonna sell you the product you wanna buy. You’re a criminal. “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. I like it a lot. Some people hate it. The music is
really great, in my opinion. Animation is really great. It’s, like, not an amazing story,
but the music and animation are pretty great. “A Nightmare on Elm Street” collection.
What was I saying about piracy deterring? This was, like, twenty bucks for seven movies.
What I was hoping though, is uhm… These are all, like, I watched these movies
a lot when I saw a kid, now look at me. Part six… there’s a really funny part in
part six where the character, I shit you not, the character in the film puts on shitty red and cyan 3D
glasses to cue the audience members to put on their 3D glasses. She goes into the dream world, she’s like: “You need these”,
and it says: “3D” and it’s, like, made of paper and plastic. The character is doing this.
It’s so fucking funny. I wish, Jesus Christ, I wish that they released a red and cyan
3D viewable version of “A Nightmare On Elm Street” part six. But no, I checked this Blu-ray, it’s not 3D,
there’s no option to watch it. Dammit. Anyway, these movies are kinda funny.
Might review them someday, might not. “No Country for Old Men”, fantastic Coen Brothers movie,
that will be on my 2007 video next year. “Once”. Probably also gonna be
on my 2007 video next year. I really love the music in this movie. If you don’t love the
music, which a lot of people find it to be great music, me included. If you don’t love the music in this movie, there isn’t
all that much to the movie. It’s a little hipstery. The characters are still fun to watch and see what
they go through, but it’s not all that eventful. It’s kind of, like, a really… It’s like a feature length
music video. It’s like they released an album as a movie in a sense. It’s a musical, but it’s not like they’re singing for
no reason. They’re just people that are recording songs. Their characters are recording an album sort of thing. “Pandorum”, very underrated.
Got bashed by the critics for whatever reason. Dennis Quaid is in it. He doesn’t ruin it. Ben Foster is
in it. I love Ben Foster. He’s a very underrated actor. I mean, it’s clearly inspired from a lot of things,
like “Resident Evil”, and same producers as “Resident Evil”, so why not? It’s clearly inspired from “The Descent”.
They kind of, like… I don’t wanna talk about how
it’s inspired from “The Descent”, because that might spoil “The Descent”
for people that haven’t watched “The Descent”. But I think “Pandorum” was prety good.
I liked where the story went. It’s not amazing, but it was on my “Underrated Horror Movies”
thing, and I think it’s underated. Was this Fox Searchlight? No, it was Alliance. ‘Cause, I… I don’t know if this got a poor distribution,
I just think it wasn’t advertised very well. I just think that there weren’t a lot of trailers.
Maybe just people didn’t want to see it or something. I saw it in theaters and it didn’t do too well.
It lost a lot of money and I thought it was pretty good. “Pan’s Labyrinth”, absolutely fantastic.
Guillermo’s best movie he’s ever made, I think. I haven’t seen a lot of his older stuff in Criterion. Although… that one with that ghost boy that I forget
the name of, I didn’t think that was that good. Still haven’t seen “Pacific Rim”,
everybody asks me about that. “Paranormal Activity”, the first one. Bought this
when I was working at Blockbuster, and uh… Yeah, “Disc 1”, no “Disc 2” again. It was good for what it tried to do. It was a good low-budget movie with low-budget effects
that didn’t seem so low-budget in their effects, I guess. What was it? Like, 11000 dollars or some shit?
I don’t remember. It was stupd low-budget, and what they were able to do with
that budget was impressive, I think. “Paths of Glory”. You know, a lot of you film buffs and maybe if
Tony from “Every Frame a Painting” decided to watch this video, he might say… He might take issue with the fact that most of
my movies that I own and that I enjoy are very, very recent. I really want to get into a lot of older films,
’cause I enjoyed this very much, and I’ll be keeping an eye on a lot of Criterion
releases that I want to sort of keep up with. But, I mean… I just… There’s
not enough time in my day. I really need to see a lof of older films, I really do, and I’m looking
forward to it. I just need to… I need to… set aside the time to do it, ’cause there’s so much stuff coming out currently
and so many things that I haven’t seen currently that it’s difficult to try and fit everything on my plate,
so I’m doing my top 10 of the years going both directions, so 2013 and 2007 coming next year, and then…
like, 2015. And then… 2014 and 2006 coming 2016, so eventually, I’ll see every movie ever made,
assuming I live that long. I don’t think I’m gonna make it that far into the past,
but I really wanna see a lot of older Hitchcock movies, I really wanna see some Ingmar Bergman, I really wanna see…
Like, I saw “Persona”, I enjoyed that. I wanna see uhm… “The Seventh Seal”. I’m really excited for that. I need more time, like, I understand a lot of the context to the films
and a lot about them, but I still need to experience them, I think. “Paths of Glory”. 1950’s by Kubrick.
Great movie. Gotta say. Really, really great movie. “The Pianist”. You all know about “The Pianist”.
Adrien Brody, like, youngest Oscar winner for that role. He doesn’t have to do a good job ever again. He’s earned it.
He’s earned it. He earned that Oscar, he earned my respect forever. Adrien Brody. What a champ. And also it’s really well directed.
Everything about it is pretty great. It’s… you can’t deny that
that’s a great movie, I think. “Poultrygeist”, made by Lloyd Kaufman of “Troma”.
I think this was the first Blu-ray they’ve ever released. It’s hilarious. It was on my “Underrated Horror” thing,
and it’s not an art movie. It’s not good. It’s funny bad. So check it out if you like funny bad. “Prisoners”,
very underrated, fantastic movie. It’ll be on my 2013 thing. “Pulp Fiction”, just recently got this on Blu-ray.
Super cheap, I think it was, like, ten bucks. I need to… I still haven’t seen it on Blu-ray,
but it’s something that, like… It needs to be a part of my collection,
just ’cause I love the movie so much. “The Rabbi’s Cat”. This was on my
2011 video, you can check that out. “Ratatouille”. You know what? I don’t know
why people don’t like “Ratatouille” that much. Some people… Like, some people act as though
it’s not one of Pixar’s better movies. I think… Debatably, it’s Pixar’s best movie.
I think that it worked really well. And yes, there’s nonsensical aspects to it,
like a fucking rat controlling someone by their hair, but at no point does it ever play off as though it’s, like:
“Oh, you’re supposed to accept it and there’s a real reason for it”. They don’t do, like, fake mumbo jumbo movie science.
They don’t, like, pretend to understand it. The characters that are experiencing it are just as flabbergasted,
but they’re like “Bwuah! It’s happening!”, you know? That’s the correct way that you should approach nonsense
in a movie, is not pretend that it isn’t nonsense, like a lot of movies do and, you know, just makes…
it makes me feel as though they think I’m stupid, when they try to pretend as though it’s not nonsense.
When a movie is self-aware, which is what “Ratatouille” is, they can present it in a way where they know
it’s nonsense and it’s okay. Nonsense can be okay. Things that don’t make sense can be okay in a movie. When you
present it as though they do make sense, that’s when it’s not okay. The intent matters the most. It has to be self-aware.
That’s what matters a lot to me in a movie. “Reality”. This was in my 2012 list.
One detail that I didn’t mention about the movie: The main actor in this movie,
actually, a convicted criminal. And the director of the movie found him
when he was in, like, a prison play, and so this guy used to be part of
the Italian mob and he murdered people, and then, I guess, he rehabilitated himself in a way that
he could, you know, I guess vent out his frustrations through art, and he found acting and even though he was in a prison could
never do anything with it, the director found him in a prison. And so you get to see murderer play the
main character, which is kind of interesting. I didn’t put that in my review for my 2012 video,
’cause I didn’t want people to be like: “Oh, I don’t wanna watch the movie,
’cause there’s a murderer in it.” I mean, if putting people in jail is supposed
to rehabilitate them and that’s the point, then… I mean, like obviously, murdering people is horribly
wrong and I’m not defending that in any way, but, I mean, you can still act in a
movie and the movie can still be good. Like, I don’t know if he’s making commission off it.
This is a really well-directed movie, and… It’s really well written. Possibly the only Blu-ray that I own from…
what is this… Oscilloscope Laboraties. Really, really nice packaging. I love all this cardboard,
all the art from scenes in the film. Super, super awesome to look at. One problem:
The Blu-ray itself, look at this. “Oscilloscope”, with the small text saying
the title of the movie at the top. “Reality”. I wish that the disc was more
“Reality” and less “Oscilloscope”, but… still… really nicely designed.
I love the packaging. I love… You know, when you put effort into a physical release,
it makes it much more appealing, you know. It’s so… Hmmm. That texture. Ten out of ten. “[Rec]”. This was in my uhm… I made a movie… I made a… PFFFF. I made
a review about “Quarantine” versus “[Rec]”, but I think you should just watch
this movie before you watch that. And that review is really old. Really fucking
old and my style was not my own at that point. I hadn’t really developped my
reviews at that point. And… I talked about… Oh yeah, did I put this in my… I did. I did. I put it
in my 2008 video, didn’t I? I did. You should watch my 2008 video. “[Rec]”, uh… I’m gonna grab another stack. “[Rec]²”, still great. Maybe not as great as the first one.
There are parts of it that are even better than the first one. But there’s parts of it that,
you know, aren’t amazing. But uh… Yeah, don’t even watch “[Rec]³”.
“[REC] 4” is coming out really soon, and that looks like it’s gonna be a giant piece of shit.
Don’t even watch “[Rec]³”. It’s an insult. “Red vs. Blue”. 10 seasons Blu-ray, and uhm… “Red vs. Blue” is a very significant part to my childhood.
I remember watching “Red vs. Blue” on the Roosterteeth website, back when it was… Like, there was no web player. It was like,
you had Windows Movie or Windows Mediaplayer installed, and their video files would be on the website and you would
download a double UMV file of an episode and then watch it. I remember even that original trailer that they had for it,
that I can’t fucking find anywhere anymore, that was like… It pretended it was super serious and it was like:
“Blahblahblah… covered in blahblahblah” and then it just ended with, like,
some cockbite joke or whatever, which, if you think about it,
Roosterteeth, cockbite, get it? Yeah, this is a relevant part to our Internet online video history.
It’s a relevant part to every gaming video on Youtube ever made. The history of that, you know. It’s… I don’t know if this was the
first instance of Machinima as in, like, animating… using a videogame. Not a videogame engine, but literally, just moving
a character’s head up and down sort of thing. It was born out of a glitch, where in “Halo”,
if you look down too far, your head goes back up, so they were able to have their arms down and not facing…
like, not pointing guns at each other while they spoke, but still have their heads bub up and down and talk,
and it was born out of that glitch, and uhm… Season two: my favorite. I’ve watched all the way up until I think season nine,
so in this Blu-ray collection, I still haven’t seen season ten, but I kinda wanna watch through the whole thing again with
somebody just to refresh myself before watching season ten anyway. I never really watched the episodes online.
The episodes are, like, five minute episodes each, but they work so well as, like, a full feature. They just happen to,
I mean, I doubt that they planned their seasons as full features, but when they released them on DVD, it was just like… They just happened to work and fit within a, like,
hour and fifteen to three hour sort of time restraint each season. The writing… Burnie Burns I think his name is…? Pretty good writing for what it is, especially considering
how much call back there is to previous material in its own series. I think around season nine, there’s just
a major fucking mindfuck game changer, and I’m not gonna spoil anything, but it’s like… What they
call back, everything that they say just begins to make so much sense. Even more sense under just the previous context
to what you thought was happening in a sense. It’s like they rewrote the show’s own history without really
contradicting itself too much, which is an amazing feat I think, in writing. And uhm… it’s not for everybody. I mean, it’s uhm… You know, it’s a little nostalgic for me,
but I like it, and I like Roosterteeth. They’ve got a good Youtube channel, etcetera.
Achievement Hunter and what not. I would like to go to RTX one day. Hey, Roosterteeth! Make me a guest of honor, please.
Invite me to the convention and make me there for free. Everybody listening to this Youtube video right
now should also contact other conventions, and tell them to make me a guest of
honor and then I can go there for free. You know, I could do a panel and talk about being
asshole on the Internet and how fun that is. “Requiem for a Dream”. I already gave my story
about that one. I think it’s a great movie. Jesus Christ, my voice dies when I do this for too long. “Reservoir Dogs”. Great movie by Quintie. “Revanche”. This was in my… Am I pronouncing that right?
This was in my 2008 list. Criterion. Gotta love Criterion. “The Room”. Apparently if I didn’t order it on Amazon and I ordered
it through the actual website, I would have gotten an autograph copy. But since everybody is getting an autograph copy, then I guess mine is
the real collector’s edition, ’cause it’s the autograph free version. Owned. You all know about “The Room”.
I don’t ever want to review it, because everybody said everything
there is to say about that movie. I don’t wanna review it, because it would be a… It would
be so ridiculously uninspired. Just watch someone else’s review. Sure, I could make funny edits at parts of it. I just
don’t… I don’t wanna do it. It’s been done to death. I originally also said I would
never do “Twilight”, although… I check online, it doesn’t seem like
a lot of people reviewed “Twilight”. There was a lot of unanimous hate about it.
It doesn’t seem like there was that many reviews of it. I assumed there would be and that’s why I said I wouldn’t
review it. Maybe I might do “Twilight” in the future, but it’s kind of irrelevant now and there’s other things I wanna
get to. Right now, I’m working on that “Walking Dead” thing, and still trying to figure out how the fuck I’m gonna
do that, because there’s a lot of work going into it. I’ll explain more about that one later. I’m still trying
to figure out exactly how I’m going to approach it, but I’m working on that AND something else at the same time.
That’s not just my “Synecdoche, New York” analysis, so there’ll probably be another YMS
out before “The Walking Dead” is done, because that’s such a large project that if I work on two things
at once, then there’ll be less of a wait time before something is out. “The Walking Dead”. Still gonna take a while.
I’ve done a lot of work into it already, even while I was working on my “World War Z” thing,
I was working on “The Walking Dead”, so we’ll see what happens. I’ll try my best to keep you guys updated.
“Run Lola Run”. Not for everybody, but I enjoyed very much so, and it would appear
on the best of my year list, whatever year that came out. “Running Scared”. This movie does not hold back,
gonna say that much about it. Hey, there we go. Rober Ebert:
” ‘Running Scared’ goes so far over the top, I am in awe.” It was pretty over the top. It was well done.
It’s not amazing, but it’s a good movie. “Santa Sangre”, another one by Alejandro Jodorowsky. Apparently not in my Blu-ray case, but I have another…
a little thing over there that I have to… have things on the go. If I wanna bring it somewhere,
it’s in there for sure. “Saw 1”. It’s a part of horror history. Again, cheaper pira… PFFF. Cheaper prices deter piracy.
All seven movies for, like, twenty bucks. So of course I got these,
because they’re kinda hilarious. I made an entire review on the
“Saw” septology… septology…? I made an entire review… two-part review on all those movies,
so check it out if you wanna hear my thoughts on “Saw”. There’s another horror movie collection on Blu-ray that I want.
“Friday the 13th”, but that’s still over, like, a hundred dollars. This shit came out pretty recently. The “Nightmare on Elm Street”
one came out pretty recently as well. Like, within the past two or three years.
“Friday the 13th”… It is not even that recent for the Blu-ray. It’s, like, maybe three years old or…
Like, I guess around the same time. But these other collections selling them for twenty dollars each.
“Friday the 13th” still over a hundred? No, they’re all shit movies anyway. I wanna watch them to make fun of them.
Fuck you. They’re not worth that much. Goddammit. Like… why wouldn’t I pirate it? I’m not going to,
’cause I might as well just wait until the price drops anyway, until someone’s gonna sell it
to me for, like, twenty bucks. But… how do you… that’s the real crime, is charging that much
for that fucking Blu-ray collection, that’s a real crime. Go to jail. “A Scanner Darkly” by Richard Linklater, the director
of “Boyhood”. A very different movie than “Boyhood”. Very cool animation. Watch the trailer and
you’ll see what I mean by cool animation. “A Serious Man”, I mentioned it in my 2009 review.
Very well done Coen Brothers movie. Very underrated Coen Brothers movie. Not that many people watched it.
I watched it in theaters twice. I loved it. “Se7en”. Pretty great Davd Fincher movie. It’s a classic. “What’s in the box?” “Shame”. The other… What’s his name? I’m dying today guys.
I’m dying today. I woke up so fucking early. Not even really that early, but just compared
to how late I’ve been waking up all week. And now my coffee is wearing out. My voice is dying. Steve McQueen.
It’s his other movie. It was in my 2011 list. Very high up. “Shaun of the Dead”. You all know “Shaun of the Dead”.
It’s a great horror comedy. You should watch it. Zombies are an even more popular thing now,
so… you should watch it again. “The Shining”, I love, love, love Kubrick.
He was a crazy genius, and “Room 237” is a piece of shit.
I made a review on “Room 237”. Watch it. “Shortbus”. The most pornographic movie that I own
on this entire shelf. It is a… it’s kind of uhm… It’s kind of an experimental film where they had the actors
actually having sex with each other in the sex scenes in the movie. And the sex scenes are prevalent…? Prevalent. Yeah, prevalent in the film and they’re part
of the characters’ stories in a sense, where some of them are struggling sexually for whatever
reason or certain relationships, etcetera, etcetera. You know, there’s a gay couple in the movie, there’s a
straight couple in the movie, etcetera, it’s… like… I guess it’s trying to fit every demographic, ’cause, I mean, there’s never
really gonna be a movie like this ever again, so it might as well. But I thought it was really well made. Really daring for what it did. There’s
a lot of nudity, but it’s not porn. It still got a story and it still got
characters that you can care about. It still got some emotional scenes.
Don’t watch it if you’re not open-minded. Like, there’s an amazing… Like, what I
would consider to be fantastic monologue. Maybe not necessarily how it was written, but the combination
of the writing and its presentation and the music that was going on. There’s a really, really great
monologue that happens and, uh… It’s difficult… I don’t wanna spoil anything. There’s relationships and I guess
kissing and, I guess, kissing between… If you get bugged by sexual things,
just don’t watch the movie. You’re missing out and I hope that one day you overcome
your insecurities and your triggers of nudity and sexuality. “Oh, no! I got triggered by seeing naked people!” I hope that
one day you overcome that part of yourself. It’s a good movie. “The Signal”. Really great horror movie.
Kinda bad at parts, but it knows that it’s bad at parts, and for the story that’s happening in the movie,
it’s very fitting for what’s happening. The movie is supposed to make you feel the sense
of “What the fuck is even happening or going on?” and it totally achieves that. It’s not,
like, a necessarily confusing narrative, but just what they show is just,
like, “What the fuck?” and it’s great. David Bruckner directed the first
third of it and he did a great job. David Bruckner being the director of
the segment “Amateur Night” from V/H/S. So both of the parts of movies that he’s
directed have been the best parts of those movies, and yet, he’s never directed an
entire feature length film yet. We’ll see what happens if he gets a feature length film,
but so far he’s doing a pretty good job. He just… he hasn’t directed a movie.
He’s doing a good job. I’m gonna grab another stack. Frank Miller’s “Sin City”, the first one,
so not the absolute piece of shit. I really like the first “Sin City”. “A Single Man”. A prime example of extreme homophobia by the
Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), given the fact that this has a PG rating in Canada,
no issue, but an R-rating in the United States. No language. There’s, like,
brief nudity in a photograph. But that’s it. Literally, the biggest issue that
the MPAA has, is that the characters are gay. Yeah, they’re just a bunch of pieces of shit. Can’t show people being attracted to
each other in a way that’s unconventional. Let’s show people getting their arms
cut off without actually bleeding to death. Let’s show it as long as there’s
no blood. No blood doesn’t exist. Let’s show people getting trampeled by
giant monsters and dying in natural disasters, but as long as you’re not too close on those people
and there’s no blood, then it’s okay. Violence is okay. Let’s just have a big shootout, but you can’t show
people affectionate to each other. That would be wrong. That would be the wrong type of
environment to raise children in. You don’t want them to grow up in a
world showing affection to anyone else, You want them to grow up in a world ready
to go out and buy a gun and shoot everybody. But it’s video games’ fault…
when people shoot up things. “Sunshine”. Funniest thing about this: This is one that I had to rebuy, because, uhm… I still have my other one, I just keep it in a spot
on my shelf where, like, I just don’t fuck with it. The original one that got released was one where it
worked fine for a while and then Blu-ray players updated, and then after that update, for whatever reason, just “Sunshine”,
not this Blu-ray but the other one that I had, the in-picture commentary in special features would…
There would be no way to disable them, so you would try to play the movie like normal,
and then it would be like… All of the sudden you’re watching people talk over the movie
as you’re watching the movie and there’s no way to turn it off, So… yeah, they fucked up. “Synecdoche, New York”, my second favorite film of all time.
I’m working on an analysis of it to release pretty soon. Hopefully sooner rather than later. We’ll see
if I can do it within a week. Hopefully. “There Will Be Blood”, Paul Thomas Anderson.
Great movie. It will be in 2007 video when I make it. John Carpenter’s “The Thing”, one of
the best horror movies ever made. Amazing special effects.
Amazing practical special effects. “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie”. Funny ’cause
it’s not funny is the type of humor that I’m fond of. This movie is not for everybody. It’s not something I
recommend to people. A lot of people hate it and that’s okay. You’re not wrong for disliking it. I’m not wrong for liking it.
Just calm down. Don’t get offended. It’s okay. I’m sorry I triggered you. “Tom at the Farm”. I’m just losing my shit now. I’ve been talking for way to long.
I thought this would just be something short that I could do. Chris Stuckmann’s video was, like, 48 minutes and
I just briefly looked at the shelf behind him, and it seemed… I thought… I feel like he owns more
Blu-ray’s than me. Why is this taking so goddamn long? Still less time than it would take for
me to make a Quickie though, so I’m… It’s possibly the shortest amount of time that I can
spend making any video to release to you guys right now. Anyway, “Tom at the Farm”. I mentioned it… I guess I’ll mention
it in my 2013 thing coming up. “A Town Called Panic”. If you have some friends that smoke weed, show them
this movie while they’re really high on weed. It’s a magical movie and uhm… It’s absurd and surreal and it’s self-aware.
I mentioned it in my 2009 review. “Toy Story 2”, another good Pixar movie. I like it better than
the first one. I don’t know why some people have an issue with that. It was its own thing. It expanded on the first movie’s universe,
rather than just creating a carbon copy of it, and then “Toy Story 3” was just
a carbon copy of “Toy Story 2”. So “Toy Story 2” in my opinion is the best one.
Maybe not the best in terms of its impact it had on the industry, ’cause “Toy Story 1” was a phenomenal impact.
But “Toy Story 2”, I just feel is a better movie. “Traffic”. It was part of a combo-pack.
I still haven’t watched it. “Trainspotting”. I love “Trainspotting”.
It’s a really great Danny Boyle movie. “The Truman Show”. Classic. Before… … Andrew Niccol lost his brains.
I lost my brains today. “Tucker and Dale vs. Evil”. I mentioned it in my 2010 list and it’s quite a funny movie.
I would recommend it. I’m getting really tired, I’m sorry guys. “Unforgiven”. A movie that was also
in a combo-pack that I haven’t seen. I just need more time. “In Time”. “The Usual Suspects”. It was in a
combo-pack and I watched it, and uhm… It’s a little overrated, I think.
It’s still good. It’s not amazing. It’s good. “Up”. I bought this when I was
working at Blockbuster, and uhm… It’s a good Pixar movie, it has a really
good score. The whole movie isn’t amazing, but, I mean, the first twenty minutes of it is pretty good,
like, really good. The rest of it not amazing, but good. “Up in the Air”. I mentioned on my 2009 list. The Vengeance Trilogy. This got “Oldboy”, this got
“Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance” and this got “(Sympathy for) Lady Vengeance”. I’ve seen everything but “Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance”. And “Oldboy” is an amazing, amazing film. Do not watch
the 2013 American remake, it’s a piece of shit. That’s something I could review. GET HYPED. “V for Vendetta”. You all like that. I like it. God… OH MY GOD. I’m dying. “Waking Life”. Only released
on Blu-ray in Germany and it’s an American movie. Also, “Shortbus” was also released on Blu-ray in Germany, so that
Blu-ray I had, you can not get “Shortbus” for a Region A player. It was only released on Blu-ray in Germany, so that and
“Waking Life”, despite them being American movies, you’re a criminal if you want to be able
to watch an HD version of “Shortbus”, and you don’t have a Region B
Blu-ray player, you’re a criminal. “Waking Life”, despite this being a
German release, this is actually Region Free, so this one is good if you want to
buy this on Amazon or something. From the director of “Boyhood” and “A Scanner Darkly” and a bunch
of other movies. Shit-ton of other movies. The “Before” trilogy. This one is all about dreams and people talk for a while
and it’s got the two characters from the “Before” trilogy, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy,
I forget how to pronounce her name. They show up and make a cameo appearance in the movie.
It’s animated very similarly to “A Scanner Darkly”, although this one was made first. It’s very imaginative.
It’s very cool and interesting and fun to watch. I would recommend it. “Waltz with Bashir”. I talked about this one
in my 2008 review. Pretty cool animation. “Watchmen”. It was good. I bought this when I was working
at Blockbuster. I don’t know if…like… There’s certain things that I would buy with a
discount and I wouldn’t buy without a discount. Again, just adding to the fact that the cheaper things are,
the less people will pirate them, etcetera, etcetera. “Watchmen”. I bought it. I enjoy it. It’s not amazing, it’s got some,
like, iffy parts to it. It wasn’t on my best of the year list, but it was decent. “Weekend”, the best gay movie in my opinion, just for,
like, a straight… straight on relationship movie. Just something that shows two characters having a relationship.
It’s a love story and if you’re a little open-minded, you can get over the fact that the
characters are the same gender. I think it’s really well made. The director and writer of this movie went on to produce an
HBO show called “Looking”, and that’s just all about gay people. I saw the first, like, three episodes. It’s alright.
“Looking” is more of a thing that… Like, you’re bound to love it if you’re a gay person,
but you might not love if you’re not a gay person, whereas “Weekend”, I feel, like, it’s so substantive and again,
I mean look, Criterion Collection. Look at that. It stands on its own despite it being about gay people. It doesn’t pander.
It’s not, like, the gay version of a Tyler Perry movie, you know. It’s not just sticking to one group and just saying, like,
“Okay, you can only enjoy it if you’re a part of this group.” “Where the Wild Things Are”. I bought it when
I was at Blockbuster. It’s still pretty good. The child actor in “Where the Wild Things Are”
was really good. Really great. Like, child performances are great if it’s
the right child and the right director. Last one: “The White Ribbon”, my favorite film
of 2009. Holy shit, guys. My voice is dying. I hope you all enjoyed watching me fucking ramble
and get pissy about my Blu-ray collection. Maybe I might show off the
remaining DVD’s that I have someday, but this is a video that I can just quickly get
out to you guys, there’s going to be minimal editing. And… so that there’s something I can post while
I’m working on my “Synecdoche, New York” analysis, and other things that take a lot longer to make.
As you saw with my “World War Z” review, I spend a lot of time making these things and
a lot of time and effort goes into them, so in order to have a channel where
I can release things frequently, I need to have simpler projects that I can
release in between those larger projects. My voice really sucks right now. I don’t
know what it is with how I talk. This only ever happens during me talking in front
of a camera and a microphone at the same time. When I’m editing my… When I’m doing my YMS reviews…
like, maybe it’s just ’cause I’m more doing it like this. Maybe it’s ’cause I’m not talking as loud. I don’t
know why, but my voice is dying right now, and uh… I love you guys! [Subtitles by Abel Boeschoten]
