@Brandon Draven Awww, shit, I fell for a troll. Someone cue the Rick Roll.
@Brandon Draven Do you hear the people sing? Singing a song of angry men? It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again!
@Brandon Draven @DaBun You mean like how four year olds should be able to drive and drink beer?
@Brandon Draven @Charliesnedden Dude, this kind of shit proves why it'd be a pain in the ass dealing with the issue. This isn't Les Mis, you can lay down the banner and leave the barricade. I think there are more important battles.
@supmandude @demonofgaming Thank you for illustrating. Shitheads like this guy.

@RobertMcDougal @Brandon Draven The problem is twofold.
1. You can't sign legal contracts until you are 18. In lawsuit happy California this would be a huge problem.
2. California has some very strict rules about handling minors on a set. James would have to hire people just for this. For free extras it's just notion much trouble.
In other words, blame nanny-state California, not James.
@demonofgaming Once again, "Follow That Bird" is a Sesame Street movie for kids, and it didn't suck balls. Hopefully if you have kids you will realize that some kids stuff is fun, and some is utter crap.
BTW, constructive criticism is useful, being a Fuck McNugget like some people here is not. If I were him I'd say a hell of a lot more than him. I think he's been rather measured in response to the shit heads out there.
@Irate Gamer Fanboy I know you're trolling, but anyway...
Do you really think people would show up for a movie of a piece of turd in a toilet for 90 minutes? That's kinda like what irate gamer would be like.

@Khameleon I don't think anyone's truly ready for the wallet-rape that California is. Easy to not expect that, especially when you think you can just set up a camera anywhere.
Next time he gets an itch for filming, he could try out many of the states that give huge discounts to filmmakers because they want the business. Screw CA.
@kentowen Disneyland is right down the street after you're done shooting. Just sayin'.
@JelwynnKain You do realize that's why he was taxed so much... $300,000 or so of "income" will magically make him one of the "1%" this year that some people love to hate so much. On paper anyway.
Nobody should pay 90% of their income to the government.
@Davy Okay, that there's funny. :)

@TehKnight I'm an Arizonan too, but it's only 5 hours to L.A. from here. We do Disney pretty often. You could always call it a vacation. :)
@fightgenie Yeah, Armageddon was a total shit-fest. As it turns out "I do want to miss a thing, I do want to close my eyes."
Oddly enough "Pearl Harbor" didn't bother me nearly as much as it apparently should have. I guess walking in expecting total crap can leave you satisfied if anything in it was good. :)
@Calavera Yes, people hate his attention to detail, that's why so many 12 year old "game reviewers" on YouTube with no scripts, shitty camera work, and no production values are as popular as AVGN.
Second of all, talk for yourself duck fuck.

@supmandude Troll is obvious troll.
@supmandude I'm sure. Or at least defend someone's right to make a private owner of a private server have to pay and waste people's time and their money to have their worthless opinion promoted against the site owner's will.It's the typical shit, scream "free speech" even though that is about the government, not private individuals. Scream that you have the right to be a dumbass on someone else's dime and act butthurt when said owner gets tired of your shit.
@supmandude A private message board owned and paid for can censor whatever they want, dolt.
I love how those who disagree with you should die. You champion of "open mindedness" and "free speech" you.
@supmandude Censorship means that a place has some standards, unlike you. If someone is useless, screw them, Cinemassacre is paying for the bandwidth.
BTW, real life (ie not web shit) has "censorship" too, it's called getting punched in the mouth for being a dumb fuck.
@Doogrisa Agree, this guy is a hardcore twatburger and adds nothing to this site.
@Kurvos The battle here really is creativity, to see how to take two entirely unrelated things and tie them together in a half sensible fashion. It's a battle of wits.
Yeah, the "who would win" thing is out there, but it's been done to death. I don't even give a fuck anymore who thinks Wolverine or Lobo would win, or a Star Destroyer vs. the Enterprise. This, on the other hand, is just fun to watch them try to wiggle two stupid things together.

@BaldFrenchGuy For a second there I thought you were talking about the Rescue Ranger.
@Firewall_Philip_Hanan Far too serious for this kind of silliness. For the spirit of this, for instance, pit Unicron against the roach that lives in the twinkie in Wall-E, or perhaps The Elements of Harmony.
I agree with this post greatly. The one thing I did find a little different is that while I'd say the point you found is valid, I think even stronger was the message that different races don't just have to be with "their own kind" to be happy, when everyone works together even greater happiness can be had. A great point, IMHO.
All the things you mention where part of what made this movie a lot of fun though! While there's singing it's not sucky and annoying for the most part. Roscoe Orman (Gordon) even gets an action scene. I wonder if he's done that since playing the pimp in the blaxploitation movie "Willie Dynamite". No, really. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072409/
"Follow That Bird" highlights everything that was great about Sesame Street. Elmo's flick shows the total trash heap that Sesame Street is becoming with him as the star. I don't even think Oscar wants to be on that pile of crap.
I think those really upset about this commentary likely are those who grew up loving Elmo. It's too much a part of their childhoods to want to pick on it. For those of us who grew up with Sesame Street that didn't suck, we love to mock this movie because it symbolizes the massacre of our childhood show and don't mind this movie being savaged (let alone Elmo).
@PietariKotala A classic example of what a shitstain Elmo is.
@AxlTCU Dude, if you actually WANT to hear this movie and what fucking ELMO is saying then it is YOU who needs help and taste.
@werty12112 When you have kids you'll learn that there are good kid's movies, and total shit kid's movies. You'll learn the pain and suffering from the shitty ones, and you WILL want to fucking kill Elmo. Not to mention Barney... *shudder*
@AppleCider The funnier thing was when Mike didn't cut to himself when Elmo said to Zoe "now don't fucking touch it bitch, or I'll slice your fucking eyes out"... for a millisecond there my brain was processing it as something Elmo actually said. I laughed my ass off.
@metalcommand Dude, your emos sound like even bigger shitheads than ours.
You know, the sad thing is that Mike was right, Follow That Bird wasn't bad at all, given that it's a Sesame Street movie and all that. It had Dave Thomas and Joe Flaherty as the villians. It also had cameos by John Candy, Chevy Chase, and Waylon Jennings.
It's one of those children's movies that when your kids beg to watch it again you don't have to bash your head into the wall to cope with the pain. I prefer when they want to watch The Dark Crystal though.
This, however, was shit. Some damn relative bought this one. I think I'm gonna scratch it up soon.
@Kookiez29 No, you're right, it's Mandy Patinkin, Inigo Montoya himself. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
That lizard guy looks a bit like Grig from "The Last Starfighter".

@AmbossDerRabiator Do you also bitch about them showing movies for free on network TV years after thier release?

@RobertCain He wouldn't be the first person to be killed by overconfidence and stupidity. Toying with a foe like that rather than finishing the job has consequences.

@Mike/Cinemassacre Actually, I'd like to see a really good actor make Anakin's shitty dialog sound good. I'm not sure Laurence Olivier could sell some of those stinkers.
2 years, 8 months ago on Message From Space
@Mike/Cinemassacre When it was first out? I mean, yeah, some effects were "meh", the spit you mentioned was VERY noticeable, but overall I thought the presentation was impressive at the time. Probably should have stuck with the muppet for non-leaping Yoda though.
As far as acting I guess I felt that when it suffered it was likely due to craptastic dialogue from Lucas that no actor could save. :). Can't discount directing either.
Still, by ROTS I think it had mostly improved minus a few more spots of shit dialogue again.
@GunStarGhost@Martin123 To be fair, the CGI was amazing at the time. Jar Jar does suck the big one though.
Darth Maul vs. two Jedi makes up for it though, it's a shame they can't have a version that is purely Jedi and pod racing action with none of the lame parts. :)
@PDL Yeah, I think of it that way too. Mike may be sick of MFer, and I don't blame him, but Monday definitely is "Motherfucking" :)
@DerekShort Star Wars ... gay? Well I guess it is happy at times, but not always.
Oh wait, you mean something else? Allow me to reply with a hearty "go fuck yo momma".
So, is the actually good recent Ghostbusters game not considered to be a movie video game since it doesn't precisely have a movie it's emulating, or does it count because it's based on a movie franchise?

@Mirokunite @DBZMagus I like. With my new kid I'll see if I can make that happen.
Probably won't though, the other kids will probably watch them in front of him before then.
@Waffle Yeah, as good as it was to me those are valid points. I'd probably made things more clear myself. It's a LOT better than ep 2 & 3 though.
My take is that when he went over he snapped hardcore and turned his healthy emotions off. Isn't that what the Jedi wanted? ;) Basically going Jedi postal there.
Re: Padme - I saw it not as much as "oh no he went dark side" as pure mental and system shock at being dark side choked by the one she ultimately loved and trusted. That, combined with the corrupting harm of the dark side hitting her and the physical strain of labor doing her in.
Just my take anyways. As I said, Lucas could have made it more clear.
For me, that was the part that made the most sense and was done well. You see his rage barely in check in the film (and shows) before. You see his leanings towards authoritarian solutions.
When he finds the truth about Palpatine/Sideous he is conflicted but turns in the old man he had thought of as a friend. He damn well wanted a fair trial about it though. He couldn't stand seeing his friend suffer any more than he later could his son.
After Mace is killed he realizes the Jedi will never take him back. The only thing left is his wife, and he thinks that only by following his new master can he save her.
Ironically, this causes him to hate when he thinks she has left him to join Obi-Wan. He lashes out at her with that hate and fatally harms her through the touch of the dark side. Between that and her loss of hope she gives up and passes away. I've seen it happen in real life when someone gives up, and that's without any harm from the Force.
@FrankCabanski You have to remember that even by the original trilogy's standards so few Jedi was an abnormality. They were a knighthood, protectors of a republic. While rare they were never to the point of being thought of as myth before.
The mysteriousness of the Jedi was way higher in that era than any other time.
FWIW, I showed my kids the originals first to preserve the shock value of the Vader reveal. Then I had a teaching moment to them when we watched the prequels about how a good man can go bad, and about redemption.
Other than his opinion on Darth Maul (badass) this is pretty close to my feelings on the prequels. I don't know why so many people don't seem to like Ep 3. I think they must just have a mindset that if it's prequel it must be bad. Honestly, Ep 3 deserves to stand with the originals.
The one thing I didn't hear him talk about is the added Biggs scene in Ep 4. That I thought was a VERY good addition, maybe one of the few that the Special Edition did very, very right. Originally watching I didn't even catch that one of Luke's friends was there with him. It really ramped up the emotions seeing his buddy there and losing his friend.
I'm pretty sure my "irony detector" went off when James called the guy a "stud".

@The_Smooth_Dude Sounds like, "I hate you, you're stupid, and so's your mother. Nothing personal."
I guess those who like Mike's videos will have to disrespectfully disagree with you. In closing, eat my shit, fuckstick.
