If we're scaling things here, Lindsey only manages a like 2.3 on the smugness scale. By no means is she anywhere near Kyle (3.6), Dan (5.8), BotL(7.6) or HBomb (who I can't give a rating, because his smugness is such that not only can the scale handle that much, but it requires me to tare to scale afterwards).

It seems weird to accuse Ms. Ellis of being smug especially in comparison to the RLM guys, who refer to dumb regular movie-goers on a regular basis in Half-in-the-Bag and made a fake podcast to make fun of nerds.

I guess "speaking as if one knows that they're talking about" and "direct mockery" can both be smug in different ways?

Dan ventured into CD not long ago and got utterly dunked on. By extension, his smugness went down a peg or two.

Sandy Irons was banned by George Noory due to Irons simply calling in to bash fan theories surrounding Supreme Leader Snoke of the Star Wars franchise. Irons' final call in was on August 16, 2017 when he shouted over the phone, "Your Snoke theory sucks! All Snoke theories suck!" as soon as he got on the line. Noory simply asked Irons for his own Snoke theory and Irons began shouting again. Noory dumped him mid-shouting and Irons was banned from the program.[20]

This argument is stupid. Have a video from Isaac Arthur about how viable O'Neill cylinders could be for space colonization.

Isaac Arthur is a cool channel that looks at science fiction concepts as well as theoretical science regarding humanity's future in outer space. Also, he is aware he sounds like a scientist Elmer Fudd.

I might have said this before but who cares the funniest video I've seen in a long time aside from Double Toasted's review of Acrimony was the Jenny Nicholson video on that SyFy Channel reality show on the caveman tribe and the future tribe. Goddamn that was funny and not just because that show was stupid as hell but because Nicholson knows how to frame her topics in the most hilarious way possible.

Arguing which of two review series that cover movies that range from merely fine (Hobbit films) to actually good (prequels) is pretty funny given that the actual film criticism from RLM and Ellis is pretty lame

One is “this standard movie shot selection makes the movie bad” and the other is “I didn’t like that they added characters that weren’t in the book”

Stunning insights there

At least Ellis’ third video covered the industry stuff and it was very cool and good and she doesn’t make videos with creepy rape dungeons

CineD is a loving disease.

It is a baffling cooking competition where people try to make the best state fair food to win a corndog trophy. You can tell the studio figured they'd do the duck dynasty thing like "ha ha ain't rednecks funny wheeee hoo," but it all falls apart because everyone actually on the show takes it completely dead serious.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hraFvIdNck

One time a guy lost because he made something Chinese, and the judges told him that fair-goers don't like foreign food so they penalized him.


I think if you wanted to tell someone what America is, you could show them the episode where someone batters and deep fries an entire softshell crab and then they'd understand.

e: just to be clear I'm not saying it's good, just that it is a hell of a thing

also while we're dropping hot takes on the countryside like it's Vietnam I'm just gonna say I think the reason RLM's star wars stuff is so sacred to so many nerds is it was the first time many of us saw criticism of the films from within the community rather than from outsiders who's main criticism boiled down to 'yea but space stuff is lame' so it was assigned a lot more depth than's actually there.

MonsieurChoc posted:

The more you know about movies and moviemaking, the more terrible the Plinkett Star Wars review seem. Because they're wrong on a huge amount of things, as well as being super manipulative on anything to do with Lucas.

I still love RLM and follow their channel and videos, but as the years go by I've come around to realizing the Prequels reviews are just plain bad.

Which doesn't mean you can't dislike the Prequels. That'S a question of simple taste more than whether something is good or not.

Lipstick Apathy

The adulation the Hobbit videos have gotten was at first baffling, but I guess people just like having the most basic talking points repeated at them.

Attacking the Hobbit's production is good, but the point it serves about how art may be created under questionable conditions is almost infantile. The serious philosophical points are mixed up with fannish nonsense, like how terrible it is that Tolkien's universe is being "run into the ground" by commercialization. It's like the RLM crew complaining that Star Wars is no longer "special" in The Last Jedi review, where the despair for a fictional word losing it's essence hides the reality that there never was any such essence in the first place. Applying this kind of mindset to anything else than some escapist fantasy universe will quickly show how useless it is.

This all culminates in argument about how depressing adulthood and you can't go back to enjoying media like a child. That also explains the video trilogy's popularity: it's a paean to adult-children.

Yaws posted:
