Mike's Pee Wee impression is pretty good. One of the best I've heard besides Paul Reubens.

That homemade shit looks fucking awful to clean up. And Mike was saying how it got all up his nose and everything. Man that's nasty.

This was a really funny review. I loved the "eating cookies joke".
I was a junior in high school working at a movie theater when this movie came out. All the children that came to the theater all the time was fucking awful. Then we had to clean the theater up between shows, and little kids are a fucking mess. After about a week or so, we didn't have so many kids, but for a little while, it was fucking awful.
Great review, can't wait for next week!

I thought the little song bit was pretty funny and creative and I liked it. It got kinda creepy at the end though.

I love that line from the joke email. "I'm gonna fuck you so hard, I'm gonna scramble your eggs." It just makes me laugh every time. I'm actually going on a date tonight after work, maybe I should try that line. :P

I think I actually remember seeing this a long long time ago on USA or something like that. Probably about 15-18 years ago. I couldn't get enough sci-fi space opera movies such as Star Wars, The Last Starfighter, Enemy Mine, and the other clones, and TV shows like Star Trek TOS, Star Trek TNG, and Battlestar Galactica. Sci-fi is STILL my favorite genre of all time (with next being fantasy, including superhero comics) and I love finding obscure titles like this.
Great find, Mike. Here's to another successful Motherfuckin' Monday!

Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, visual effects can sometimes be WAAAAY cheaper than practical effects. Case and point, imagine making a building explode. It's way cheaper to just animate it on a computer than it is to actually rig up a building to explode. Or even to make a convincing miniature set and blow it up. However, I find that practical effects are little more convincing than visual effects (within reason, crappy rubber masks you get at the dollar store aren't very convincing) if only because it's because there is actually something in front of the camera. Your actors have something to work with, they don't have to imagine this monster or alien, and they don't have to talk to a masking tape X on the floor.
But making the argument that ALL visual effects sucks or ALL practical effects rules is stupid. They both have their place, and they both are necessary. It's just that there are a lot of lazy lazy film makers that will rely on visual effects as a fucking crutch and its really EASY to do visual effects poorly and to give your movie a very "fake feel".
That said, I know that James has enough knowledge and insight to use both practical and visual effects at the proper time and place and that the resulting product will be spectacular.
Keep up the great work, I love these behind the scenes videos and I can't wait for the movie!

Wow seriously. Stop feeding the trolls guys. He might be using large, multi-syllabic words, forming complex sentences, using proper spelling, and conveying thoughts effectively, but a troll is a troll is a troll is a troll. From the retard banging his face into his keyboard to the child using capslock, all the way to the college educated 30-something with their big wall of text. They are all out to piss you off and elicit some sort of response from you because it's lulz-worthy to them. Just ignore them, okay? You'll never fully get rid of them, but at least you aren't egging them on.

Fucking stellar. I love this kind of shit. I'm definitely getting the 5 pack now. I just need to get paid again. :P
Seriously people, are you guys retarded? Don't feed the fucking trolls. You're only making it worse.
Back to Mrs. Nerd and her foodstuffs, I also drink orange gatorade ALL THE FUCKING TIME. It's pretty disgusting when I think about it, but I can't stop drinking it. And the breakfast mess sounds awesomely delicious. I'm not much of a seafood person, besides the occasional fried shrimp dish, but I'd be willing to try your beer battered fish.
Mt. Dew cupcakes just sounds delicious and disgusting all at the same time, very much a guilty pleasure. And the cheesesteak, hmm.. I can't say that I know anything about philly steaks, so wiz wit. Though, Pat's vs Geno's is a moot point with me. I'm not from Philly, so I don't really care.
Looking forward to more stories from Mrs. Nerd. Watch out boo, mommy's drunk 'n' makin' fish!

Motherfuckin' Monday!!!! Thanks for showing this to us, Mike. The movie looks like a shameless attempt at cashing in on Star Wars' success. I like Japanese cinema, and I like campy sci-fi movies, so I will probably give this a watch at some point.
Anyways, thanks for the review. Can't wait for the next one!

Oh man, I can't fucking wait to get my autographed nerd photo. I'm gonna hang that sucker up as soon as I get it.
Keep up the nerd log, its great to see what goes on in making a feature film, especially a film that we, the fans, directly funded. I'm so excited to see the final film when it comes out!

Looks like you were missing the other squid cable for the SNES. Not that it matters really, its still a piece of shit that doesn't fucking work. And yes James, the name of those types of cables is actually "Squid cables."

I miss your "Motherfuckin' Monday" intro. Though I can understand why you might want to distance yourself from the "motherfucker" persona and just be "mike".
Anyways, great review. I'm loving these really cheesy shitty movies you're reviewing. They're all so god damned terrible, it's great. Keep up the good work!

Aladdin on SNES was a great little platformer. It wasn't very long, nor very difficult, but the password system was short and easy, the controls fluid and responsive, the graphics were very good on the snes, the sound and music was great and quite memorable (I can still remember some of the tunes), and it was a pretty faithful adaptation of the Disney animated feature film.
I highly recommend it, or any of the other Capcom-Disney titles that were on NES and the SNES. I don't think there are ANY bad ones. Hell, the HVGN did a video on them, so you KNOW they gotta be good!

Hey Mike, first off, you need to bring back the "Motherfuckin' Monday" intro. I totally dug it and always looked forward to seeing what violent scenes were going to be in the next one. And second, you should do a review of the 1989 movie Sweet Home (Sûîto Homu). Yes, the VERY SAME Sweet Home that was made by Capcom and is widely considered the great-grandfather of the survival horror genre. The movie and the game were released at the same time, so it is unclear whether the movie is based off the game, or the game is based off the movie. Whatever the case may be, the movie has a lot of creep factor to it. Japanese horror and western horror are very different, and since you and James are both horror aficionados, I think you guys will appreciate it. Better yet, why don't you review BOTH the movie AND the game?! Make it like, a Motherfuckin' Monday special!
It's pretty easy to find a nintendo emulator and a translated ROM of sweet home. Or you can purchase an actual translated NES cart from www.nesreproductions.com. All you have to do is send a donor cart along with $25 and you can get an actual NES cart to play on if you don't want to go the emulator route. I highly recommend the game, it's creepy (in an 8-bit sort of way) it's a fun RPG, and it paved the way for games like Resident Evil to come about.
Keep up the great work Mike!

Yeah... I'm sorry. I can sit through a lot of bad movies like you said at the beginning, but when there's a bad movie that makes me just scratch my head and go wtf? I tend to shy away from them. I just don't have the patience for them anymore. Maybe when I was younger I could have done it, but not anymore. Thanks for the review, keeps me from having to actually watch it.
