Diamanda Hagan’s latest review offers a shocking glimpse into yet another alternate Spoonyverse!
the fuck is this garbage?!
Who is this Juggalo and why is he not Spoony
1. Not a Juggalo.
2. She is a woman, not a he.
Jesus christ how horrifying
Stop your sexism. You will live easier without it.
I fail to see the sexism.
You think so? Watch how you talk about my fiancee, jackball.
That’s your fiancee? My sincerest apologies.
Don’t be sorry, I’m certainly not.
You people make Spoony look bad. If you don’t respect his peers I really wish you’d respect him a bit more.
It’s called a cameo, you know, critics do it from time to time and post the episodes they cameo in on their sites? I’m sorry, do you watch reviews at all?
I hope you never visit Phelous’ site. You’d probably go crazy.
*sigh* Don’t do that. You ever seen Kyle’s cousin in South Park? That’s how much you’re hurting our image.
Wow, I would not have thought to see Diamanda here! Yay!
Some Spoony fans tend to be quite “harsh” with other critisc and in general for some reason. This has given Spoony trouble in the past, like other reviewers not wanting to be linked to his site or hi stuff because his fans behaved like asses. Hopefully we are not all like that.
“People are not allowed to have opinions that differ from mine.”
You sarcastically offer condolences to Diamanda’s fiancée. That is not an opinion, that is being an asshole.
The timing and humor are worse than Film Brain’s and that’s saying a lot.
-Insert Crossover Here-
He posts it because he’s in it not because he likes it so much (I think). It’s still a horrible review.
Spoony would not have made a cameo if he wouldn’t think Diamanda is funny.
You can dislike the review as much as you like, but some people already started being hateful towards the reviewer. Also, if he didn’t think she was funny and she was so terrible as you say to begin with, why would he had agreed to do the cameo at all, he could have used that time to work on his own reviews instead on wasting it on someone who makes horrible reviews. Just a thought.
Umm… that was a dude…
No she is not. Is the name Diamanda or “Goddess” in the subtitle not a clue enough?
In all fairness, I liked the review, and enjoyed the funny cameo he made.
Maybe because Spoonys fans have high standards after enjoying Spoonys reviews?!
Was this supposed to be a reply to a comment?
Yeah it was, but the reply-function seems to not work for me :(
hmm, this style of review is just not for me
A few things:
1) Really liked your cameo; Christian Spoony gave me a good laugh.
2) I liked this review. I used to think Hagan was a bit crap, but she’s improved a whole lot since I last saw one of her videos. Her audio could use some work, but her video quality has gotten a lot better.
3) So… God raptures some lady out of her clothes while she’s driving an SUV and her shoes somehow end up on the seat on top of her neatly folded clothes? Divine OCD indeed.
*sigh* here we go again =_= Poor Hagan, its very likely you’ll be another victim of spoony’s … let’s call it “xenophobic”… fanbase :/
Nice review and good cameo, although the aspect ratios seemed to clinch a bit… could’ve been just me, though.
I never really got the purpose of these rapture movies- isn’t it the belief that, as soon as you aren’t chosen “to be with god” , you’re fucked for all eternity? How do you make storylines out of this? Is it fun for christians who belive in the rapture to see what “the unworthy” will suffer through before the eternal damnation? And if you can still earn a place in heaven after the rapture, isn’t god just a giant bully when some people die right after the rapture and can’t repent? *grahhh* How did this get funding for FOUR FILMS?! T_T
I think Christians – or rather, SOME Christians, because most are perfectly good people – get off on feeling superior to the “unsaved masses” while simultaneously (see the Holocaust subplot at the film’s end) believing that they are the persecuted minority despite having more privileges in our culture than any other religion.
As for how this movie got made, it’s the same as “Christian music”: it doesn’t have to be good, it just has to pander to the fundamentalist base. It’s got a built-in audience and will make money regardless of quality.
this is scary AND bad :O
ps I was expecting a woman
1. Get your fucking sexist ass out of here.
2. Disqus is not that hard to figure out. You didn’t have to post a second comment for a p.s.
What’s funnier; the idea of the Spoony Revelation or the fact that Noah has a copy of Left Behind: the video game in his possession?
I know that accent hhmmm.There was nothing wrong with the review as far as i could see .and i think if ppl understood all the hard work and effort that goes into reviews then they`d be a lot more forgiving.besides im biased because the film used stock footage from N,Ireland and yes i really am that shallow ;)
Diamanda and Spoony in a review together…?! *faints dead away*
Don’t listen to the idiots, Mistress. This was another great review of a skull-numbingly horrible movie. I really don’t know how you can stand to watch such drivel. And Spoony, that cameo was gold. You do a great wide-eyed fanatic. xD
Spoony’s cameo starts at 16:08.
I started watching the review, but it was so boring that I skipped just to see the cameo. I don’t want to be mean, that’s just how I felt.
the crow carried his soul back to rape our senses.
That cannot be a woman, and this cannot be a review, I cant believe how long and dull this is.
I cannot comprehend how many sexist pigs are here. Seriously, you disgust me.
You are an idiot with low expectations, the only reason beings like you exist is because we need subjects for body farms.
Low expectations…? Dude, I am a gay man and I don’t waste my time rating the attractiveness of male reviewers in comment threads.
Well Mr. Gayman, then you fight a righteous cause, because, defending peoples honor in the message boards is the best way to live day by day, I salute your just and gay mannerisms. Truly… you are the king of men.
I have no gay “mannerisms” whatsoever. Of course, people like you can’t comprehend that.
You’re so clueless.
I am pretty sure I know my mannerisms better than you who has never met me.
You’re clueless because you have no idea what he’s actually saying. No one cares if you’re gay.
My point was: Straight guys immediately make comments about the appearance of female reviewers. Gays don’t do that.
And he undoubtedly spoke of “gay mannerisms”.
I just want to squeeze this reply chain more.
watchout or you’ll break the page
One thing’s for sure, we’re all gonna be a lot thinner!
OH GOD HELP ME
You are sexist
Ill give you the textbook definition of a mannerism so YOU can comprehend:A distinctive behavioral trait.
I lash out on a message board, and your behavioral trait pattern makes you take out sexist and the gay card. that’s pretty gay, now here is a resolution for you: Stop being confused about yourself and your prefrences, take a hard look at your life and go find some friends outsdide of your facebook buddy list.
I assure you, I am not the one who is confused here.
How does calling a woman man-looking make them sexist, and how does “Low expectations” have to do with you being a gay man? Nothing, that’s what. I can only assume you confused Rafael’s comment on your low expectations in content quality as a low expectation in beauty. But you’d have to be a complete moron to think that! Haha.
Calling someone man-looking if her physical appearance is irrelevant is of course sexist.
I said nothing about the quality of the review, I just criticized his sexism. If he responds with “low expectations” he can’t obviously suddenly mean them in respect to review quality.
It is not sexist. If someone called Spoony ugly, does that make them sexist? No, stop trying to make a problem out of nothing, you sensationalist moron. His comment was about the reviews quality aswell. You obviously care about Hagan, and wanted to defend her, so it’s onyl natural for Rafael to assume you like he stuff, which in his opinion would require “low expectations”. You never said she was attractive, so why would he assume you were doing anything besides sticking up for her? It would make no sense for him to say you have Low expectations in terms of female beauty, because you never stated your stance on the issue.
Don’t break your bones jumping down these slippery slopes.
*sigh* Giving up so soon?
You are just sad because you are confused and nobody likes you in real life septimar. This is the only way you can get respect. By exhibiting your ultra righteous and flawed respect for other peoples feelings in message board. I bet it even turns you on to pretend to be in the message board police.
Astonishing how much you deduce about me from a few comments.
well, you are an idiot, that one was pretty easy.
I love you too.
You love me cause I’m right and you hate yourself because you are wrong and confused :)
No, he and I hate you because you’re a nonsensical twat. :)
I love your mom cause she’s a twat
Welcome to the awful world of showbiz, women doesen’t nessecarily need
sexappeal to make it in comedy. But some charisma would certaintly help.
I think some of her marterial was rather good. So to give her some constructive-critique.
The cult-leader gothic look isn’t doing her any favours. Maybe it’s just a character I don’t know,. But when she was drowning that reporter she could’ve easily convinced me that it was a real recording of the murder of Rosen Hagen.
And to say you don’t judge people on their looks is absolutely silly. To give you a silly example, you wouldn’t give the word of a homeless the same credibility as you would a policeman’s.
It’s been proven in many studies that even though people believe they’re not judging people on looks or prejuidice, subconsciously they are.
Just by judging on performance this was stale, when you want to see a review, you want to get the perspective of the person in front of the camera, you dont want to see the movie by clips and get reaction shots of somebody going: DAAAAMN THAT’S STUPID!, and as a sidenote reviewers aspect doesnt help either, it just detracts from an already low quality product
What in the everloving fuck are you talking about???
I know I’ve only started taking an interest in Hagan, but I don’t really understand what she’s going for with this whole ‘sadistic clown cult leader’ persona.
Is this supposed to be black comedy? Well, she doesn’t really make any jokes beyond “Ha-ha, I like to eat children and beat my masked followers with a spiked dildo.” I don’t think black humor works unless it’s witty enough for the offensiveness to work in the jokes favor. For all of her sadism and darkness, does Hagan ever make any sort of JOKE?!
I feel like Hagan is just being dark and nasty for the sake of being dark and nasty, as if doing so were somehow brilliant or revolutionary. I almost expect her to be the subject of a ‘Brows Held High” review.
For an example of black humor that actually WORKS, go watch Leon Thomas’ ‘Heart of Gaming.’ He’s definitely more entertaining than Hagan is.
She was not reviewed by OanCitizen, but they did a kind of crossover together where Hagan’s spirit possessed Kyle and reviewed an old exploitation movie.
As far as “Brows Held High” goes, the creator of that show is a friend of Hagan and likes her stuff a lot. I don’t know, maybe, unlike you, he does get her jokes.
I altered the post a little bit. I actually am KIND OF warming up to her. Not enough to say that I like her, it’s still a really awkward choice to me. At least she’s smart in her analysis, I guess I can like her for that at least.
Actually, Apocalypse DOES seem like something that OanCitizan would review.
And you trying to not be a jackass is the biggest difference.
I admit, I don’t get the “Supervillain Clown Cult Leader” angle either, but I can get past that pretty easily. What I really don’t like about Hagan’s reviews is when she starts screaming and yelling. Some people can pull off that outraged foamy-mouthed anger, but I don’t think she can, honestly. She’s much better when she does the deadpan snarker routine. Those are usually her best moments, in my opinion.
If you’re willing to give her a chance, I suggest you look up Hagan’s Bonekickers reviews. I found those to be pretty hilarious, especially since the persona part of the review is dialed down quite a lot and the series itself is so ripe for tearing into; bad writing, bad characters, bad science… it’s like a shorter series of Star Trek: Enterprise.
Hey, no fair, Christian-Spoony still has his alternate Berton!
We need a Chuckles the Fucking Christian Jester to come steal it (at least that’s who I still think nabbed regular-Spoony’s Berton).
Also, it kind of disturbs me as a fan when my first thought was “oh no, 90% of the other fans are just going to rip right into this person and attack, aren’t they?”
I hate being right. Well, maybe it’s closer to 70-80%, so I guess I was off a bit, which I suppose is good.
The “xenophobe” part of the fanbase almost makes me be ashamed of being a Spoony fan. I say almost because I remember him talking about how he didn’t liked that “xenophobia” and how it even worked against him sometimes. So I guess I cannot blame him for his fans.
Plus he did do the cameo and seemed to enjoyed it, so, unlike some of his fans, he’s clrealy not “xenophobe” himself.
Shame on you people DX
It’s also kind of depressing knowing that no matter what, Spoony is accidentally and inevitably “feeding his guests to his own fans”. It’s like inviting a Christian friend to a party with a bunch of Roman Lions, it’s just not going to end well.
But Spoony shouldn’t have to stop bringing in other peoples’ videos just because of a few…bunch…okay, fuck-ton of snarling, sniveling douche-monkeys eager to shit on anything that isn’t their golden idol…well there’s a mental image for all of us.
The Douche-Monkeys will have to deal with it, and the rest of us just have to deal with the Douche-Monkeys I suppose. But I’m still pissy that they get their own stock footage army and I don’t!
Which reminds me, I wonder how Film Brain is faring against the Grainy, Black & White Hordes.
I remember when Spoony first introduced us to The Cinema Snob. If it wasn’t because of it I would not have found out about one of my favorite reviewers ever.
So no, I don’t think Spoony should stop letting us know about other reviewers just because of the Douche-Monkeys. For al we know in spite of all of their abuse the fact the cameo was posted may bring Hagan a lot of new viewers who will appreciate her stuff.
I entirely owe Spoony for introducing me to Cinema Snob. I also really enjoyed the Guru Larry stuff…or maybe I just liked watching little kids getting killed, heh heh.
It’s always good to branch out.
At first I wasn’t sue of this guy, but I found him to be pretty entertaining. Nice Review
Really? well sorry for the mix up.
You did it too? I’m not the only one? I FEEL LOVED!!!
It’s a her.
Two of my favorites together at last. Now for a was between Hagan and Insano for control of the waruld as Tommy Wiseau would say.
Ah yes, the wonderful world of Christian propaganda flicks.
Never expect logic from these things as they have to follow the fundamentalist end-times paradigm that I’m intimately aware of having grown up in a hellfire and baptist church.
Reality and these films don’t often meet, to quote the Mistress.
Ah, the old No True Scottsman.
And to a ridiculous degree at that. Take it, again, from personal experience; this line of thought reviles the lukewarm even more fiercely than it does the usual cavalcade of non believers and sinners.
Yeah that sounds about right.
Won’t lie… this was crap.
Her persona is dull, goofy, and stupid. Her comedy has no sense of punch, timing, personality, or even comedy for that matter. The movie itself really didn’t have much to make fun of. It’s a radical Christian movie, and was just plain boring. I don’t even think Film Brain wouldve touched this movie.
I’m not Xenophobic, but lets make this perfectly clear. TSE sets the standard of quality for comedy-style reviews. To me, this is the bar I compare all other series to in this genre. I even think Nostalgia Critic and AT4W are second to this series. If I wanted good female reviewing, I would watch some Obscurous Lupa (who is fun, bright, sassy, and full of personality) or even N-Chick (who’s sharp, witty, and interesting). This ‘girl’ (?!?) is none of those, and I truely felt like I wasted my time.
If you feel like you’ve wasted your time by watching this review then why waste further time by complaining about it? I can agree with you that I don’t care for her comedy or reviewing style, but you don’t have to be an ignorant, bigoted jerk by questioning the legitimacy of her gender.
So if you don’t like something, you shouldn’t comment on it? How would anyone ever know they might need improvement?
I didn’t like this video but won’t state my reasons because I don’t want to be bombarded with ready-made labels such as “xenophobic” and “sexist”.
Hey, if you question someone’s gender, it is hard to come up with a different label than “sexist”. Maybe “heteronormative”, but that is awfully academic.
But if I question a person’s race (Chinese/Japanese let’s say) that doesn’t make me racist so why is this any different?
Human races don’t exist biologically. Chinese/Japanese are nationalities.
Calling a woman manish is just a common insult. It isn’t litteral. It has nothing to do with treating he a certain way just because of her gender. These people weren’t nice to Film Brain either. But oh, were they being sexist to him? Poor guy. Atleast Film Brain didn’t cover himself in white make-up while pretending to be a psycho.
Oh c’mon. As if those comments weren’t meant literally.
Even if they were, they’re not sexist. Calling a woman man looking is the same as any other insult. The connotation being, the insult is something the person doesn’t want to be, therefore it is insulting. It’s like if I called you a dick face. Clearly you wouldn’t want your face to be a dick.
Honestly, I don’t see how these comments are sexist. I was somewhat confused because her voice is somewhat low and the lighting/makeup was off.
But, the fact that you meant your comments as an insult still makes you a pretty big dick face.
Thank you. I really honestly thought this was a guy too. I feel bad and kind of dumb for missing it but there are guys with voices in this range (kind of feminine sounding guys but I could name a few at least one you’re probably all familiar with) and the coat, the lighting and the makeup do conceal enough to make that mistake possible.
Now at the same time, while some of us were uncertain or even outright mistaken about the poor woman’s gender, it’s mean for anyone who does know she’s a woman to refer to her as mannish.
Hagan gives a good ANALYSIS of the movie, but her character just feels like a really stupid choice for an Internet reviewer.
I think you need to read up on what an analysis is. If she handed this review in as an assignment, she would barely pass if at all. (of course depending on the level of expectations)
What did she miss? I think she hit the hammer on the head well. You might not be ENTERTAINED by her, but that doesn’t make her analysis bad.
By the way, an assignment like what your speaking of would grade on tone and structure as well as analysis. I don’t agree with the tone, but everything else is okay. I’d give it a B if pressed to grade it, and ask her to rethink her persona for future assignments.
Her character is her character. She has a video pseudo-explaining the origins of her character on her site if you care to look for it. I got exceedingly annoyed with people on here for bitching about Film Brain because he has a dry sense of British humor in contrast to Spoony’s overacting comedy. Now it’s come to a head and become ridiculous.
I think you have mistaken his genuine confusion for a sexist insult. I had not idea that Hagan was a woman either until I watched one of her reviews. The clown makeup and dark shadows don’t help either.
“why waste further time by complaining about it”
NO. Nononononono. Do not think this way. I don’t often single out certain ideas as being flat-out wrong because the universe is not so monochrome, but this is WRONG. This is reverse-progress. This is destructive. We share our observations by TALKING ABOUT THEM.
How I feel about this review is completely irrelevant to what I’m saying to you. I haven’t even watched the review. DO NOT SAY ANYTHING REMOTELY LIKE THIS AGAIN.
You are a hero.Continue to stomp out lazy thinking and idiocy, you fantastic human.
I have no problem with negative criticism, even needlessly rude criticism. I just don’t know why people who specifically reference that they feel like they’ve wasted their time watching something would feel the reason to spend additional time to complain about it. If you want to criticize something then criticize it fairly to the best of your ability, but if your time is apparently so valuable to you that you feel the need to mention it in your response, then just fuck off and do something else that’s more worthy of your time.
You didn’t say anything that I didn’t already address just now. Except maybe throw in these vague denominations of “the best of your ability.”
Honestly, I just had to call it like I saw it. If I didn’t look at the name, I would’ve thought she was a dude. There are already a ton of people on here who did.
Being the internet, and having comments enabled on videos basically gives people a right to opinion, and the ability to express said opinion. I don’t feel that expressing an opinion is a waste of time. For all I know, 80% of ESPN is just opinion, the rest of it is factual sports news.
So, whether you think I’m just a trolling jerk or not is entirely up to you. When I like something on TSE, I give it a good comment. If it’s crap, it’s crap.
But you saw right away in the video words like goddess and how people in the comments were referring to her as she though. So the only real reason you decided to question it was to snicker at her more masculine traits. But yes, you are not alone in being an idiot on that score.
Really? I was not aware any of us had the right to comment on things or the ability to express them. Why was I never informed? Wait, how did I respond to you earlier then? Hmmm…
Then say it’s crap and get on with your life. Your time is not so special that you need to bring it up in your response to the video. My problem is not with criticizing someone, it’s with trying to feel so entitled to quality entertainment that it’s an offense to you and your time if someone doesn’t entertain you enough and yet you keep watching the video and even type up a response. If I watch something I don’t like, chances are I’m going to give a valid and fair criticism to it, but I’m not going to complain about the time I spent watching it in the first place and be a closeminded bigot by questioning the gender identity of the person who put hard work into reviewing it, like it or not. It’s my fault for pushing play and wasting that time, not theirs. I have plenty of time, it’s not that valuable to begin with, it doesn’t guarantee that all of it will be spent wisely, and unless it’s a four hour movie with an intermission, is pretty much irrelevant to my criticism.
Your comment is crap. Stop trying to educate the internet, it’s a losing battle.
Yes, I suppose trying to educate someone like you would be completely pointless.
1- You say you are not xenophobe yet you talk about how all that is not Spoony (aka everything foreign) is inferior.
2- You talk about standards of quality yet you only seem to base those standards in what you like/dislike without any other sort of criteria whatsoever. Nice.
Ok, we get it, you don’t like it. You don’t have to like it. Just wanted to point out a couple of contradictions in what you said.
Thinking something is the best of the best makes you xenophobic? I wasn’t aware of this. I thought people were allowed to have their own favorite outlets for comedy!
You are free to like and dislike whatever you like, just don’t try to make you personal oppinion sound like a standard of quality on what all things should be meassured, or you are just calling me a distasteful idiot because I just happen to like what you don’t, and then you are stepping into my freedom of liking something different.
Plus I was not calling him a xenophobe, just pointing out that his argument for excusing himself from being one was flawed.
He said it’s HIS standard. He’s allowed to hold Spoony’s videos up if he considers them the best. It’s obviously his opinion, and in his opinion, Hagan isn’t good. He clearly gave reasons for not liking her. He didn’t just say “This is shit, it’s not Spoony”. She is a character reviewer, so if he doesn’t like the character, he obviously won’t like the show. You think people can enjoy AVGN reviews if they don’t like the AVGN. No.
Nope, read again, he said that ”
TSE sets THE standard of quality for comedy-style reviews.” not HIS. And his reasons were basically that hagan was not up to that standard.
It’s CLEARLY written as his opinion. He says “To me,” “I even think” “I don’t even think” “If I wanted” “I would” “I truely felt I wasted my time”. These are all clear indicators of his opinion. So I don’t see how you’re getting offended over him forcing his opinion down your throat.
There is not question that what he expressed was his oppinion, after all, I do not coinsider him to be an aouthority on anything nor I coinsider what he wrote to be a scientific method of proof that Hagan is inferior. And what I was trying to point out were exactly those two facts.
So I’m sorry but the way he wrote it did sound to me like it was an authority comment wether the authority came from his own person or the facts he described on his comment.
alright, alright, alright. I think EVERYONE dove a little too deep into my words. Let me clarify.
When I say TSE is ‘the’ standard, yes, I only meant ‘my’ standard. It’s like when someone says Skyrim is ‘the’ standard for all other rpgs to be measured (and yes, I’m quoting Angry Joe, another show I’m a big fan of). So, that means that I measure all these internet review shows against TSE. Why? Because Spoony’s shows are some of the best in this internet genre. He’s the funniest, most charismatic personality, he picks material that are awesome for good jokes, and his production quality is incredible. Between the effects, all his funny costumes, and the overall way he makes his videos, I think Spoony is the best. So with that said, I can’t HELP but to compare all others to him.
Do I enjoy other shows? Hell yes. Angry Joe has Spoony far outclassed in production value (his entire show is green screen and FX), Nostalgia Critic is good for those off the wall angry moments, and (Team) N-Chick is an awesome change of pace with its snide wit-meets-informative reviews.
Overall, I ask myself, ‘was I entertained by this video?’ If I was, then it was a good vid for me. If not, and this crap is the case, I don’t think of it as any good. Maybe it entertained others, and if it did, more power to you. Don’t let MY words stop you from enjoying it.
Thanks for the opinions, and no hard feelings.
Given that you and Mr. Bennett both seem to be bitching about someone who happens to be different from Spoony despite the fact that this person does do quality videos… I’m willing to think maybe you’re both living with your head up your asses.
Maybe he just really likes Spoony. Troy is still capable of being objective despite that. Why are you stereotyping all Spoony fans as irrational haters of every other reviewer?
Props to what’sherface for suffering through that movie and however long it took to compile this…ouch.
While I have no particular issue with this review, I am getting tired of “reviews” in this style, which is basically a plot synopsis while the “reviewer” picks apart logical or other basic issues, with a tiny analysis at the end. [Sorry, I taught English for a while, but...] This is the weakest form of analysis, with little critical consideration required. It’s a really crowded field right now; only a few people do it very well. Spoony’s among them, thank goodness. I feel like anybody can do a highlight reel and pick out problems this way, and you can see how some reviewers are resorting to shticks this … weird … to try stand out*. I don’t feel it’s a successful way to increase the interest factor.
*(interestingly, I think Plinkett has both the weirdest shtick AND the
best reviews, at least from the critical analysis end of things)
I couldn’t agree more, even if I tried
It’s tired? I’m not tired of it yet. The only one that gets tiring is the Nostalgia Chick with her Over-analysis.
Yo Spoony, you think you can finish the FFX-2 review. Y’know: before the Entertainment industry and it’s political running dogs get the chance to break the internet? Please?
I feel like Hagan’s gotten better compared to her earlier stuff. Whatever the case may be, I liked this review a lot more than some of her earlier ones. And the “Spoony Revelation” sketch was great.
It pains me to see such trash on the site. I mean, there are so many awesome reviewers on Youtube, yet you let shit like this and the Blockbusterbuster onto the site?! TGWTG Rejects making it to TGWTG! Reviewtopia wasn’t good enought? haha.
You are aware you aren’t on the TGWTG site right now, right?
Your point? She is a TGWTG contributer, and this is a review meant for the site, the Spoony cross promoted. I don’t see how this changes my point on TGWTG letting in such shit “talent” while great content on youtube goes unnoticed.
the point is that septimar is an idiot
Hey! Cut it out you sexist!
Mr. Sexist pleez!
What’s it like to be wrong on so many levels?
Why don’t you tell me?
Because he doesn’t understand what you are saying and is covering it up by being pretentious.
Im not a fan of Diamanda Hagens videos in the slightest, but at least she is trying to be different. BlockBuster Buster does nothing that Critic, Nostalgia Chick, Mike J, Film Brain, Cinema Snob, Phelous and Lupa weren’t doing already. From a growth stand point It does Spoony no good appearing with people who are part of a style that has a fanbase that he is already exposed to. While a little off for my taste Hagen could bring in people that might not have watched Spoony’s stuff allowing him to grow and not just run into a wall.
I’m all for trying something different, but this isn’t different. It’s the same style of tell me what’s happening on screen, and make a joke, that all of those people you’ve listed do. Except, I don’t find this character fun to listen to like I do the Snob, Brain, or Spoony. He voice is just grating. Again, I have no problem with her as a person. I just think this character she chose is extremely stupid and forceful, and she’s really not doing anything new beyond reaching a new level of annoyance.
Well, explain a DIFFERENT way to review a movie. I guess you could NOT show clips of the movie…but why would you want to do that? Maybe your just getting sick of movie reviews.
I’m actually okay with Film Brain’s voice. It did take some getting used to though.
1. You don’t have to watch the video. I also don’t like Reviewtopia or the Blockbuster Buster, so I don’t watch their stuff. Very simple.
2. Instead of bitching about the fact that this video was on the site, why don’t you explain why you think the review was bad and explain how it can become better?
Oh my goodness! I can’t stand anytime someone brings up the “You don’t have to watch it!” line.
Okay, okay, I get it. My second point still stands.
This is probably the seventh time someone has said “if you don’t like something, don’t watch it”. I’m going to watch the whole thing so I can make an informed post. If I didn’t, I would sound like a moron.
If I ever become an Internet reviewer, the first thing I’m going to do is start a series of videos that deconstruct bad opinions like this. I’ll call it “The Thinking Corner”, and show a picture of a crying child sitting in the corner with a dunce cap on his head.
Trash? Where? I see two pieces of gold in that video. She’s different: yes. She’s not like Spoony or the others: yes. But that doesn’t equal trash. She isn’t a reject and she does damn fine work most of the time. I also enjoy the Blockbuster Buster. He’s a bit off, but I can enjoy it greatly. Again, where is the trash here?
Yes, trash is a bit harsh. Moldy pizza would be a better term. My point isn’t that “She’s not like spoony”. Hell, JesuOtaku is my favorite TGWTG reviewer, and I don’t even watch Anime. As for BBB, he’s the blandest or the bland. A collection of cliches. Doug’s Irate Gamer if I put it bluntly.
Eh, I don’t watch Irate Gamer.
DON’T SAY HIS NAME!! You may awaken that terrible eldritch God from his thousand year slumber…
Wow…while I agree with you on the BBB in some respects, calling this woman trash and moldy pizza is about the most disgusting thing I’ve read in a while.
Fellow Jesu fan RIGHT HERE!! WOOT!!
It’s kinda funny; the only TGWTG reviewers whos personal websites I have in my Favorites are you and Diamanda. Guess this was bound to happen eventually, lol.
Wow, can’t believe I’m in a video with Hagan AND Spoony, sort of! (I was the guy who Hagan said she was drowning.)
Holy Smokes! You’re THE guy “who Hagan said she was drowning”?! I’m not worthy!
I am indeed the Rosen Hacker.
Yeah, I don’t know who you are.
Can you explain what angle Hagan is going at with her reviews? I’m sort of baffled as to why she chose this as her character.
She based her persona off a character she watched as a child, which was this mad little puppet that had humans playing with it all the time that she interpreted as the puppet’s minions and that since they were replaced so often on the TV show they must therefore be expendable fodder for the puppet’s amusment. The puppet had a sort of clown face and so that is what she emulates.
That seems like a pretty big inside joke to base a series around. And if that’s the case, why don’t Hagan’s minions act like they are playing with Hagan? Like try to be her friend and stuff, or try to stick up for the movie to be punished later?
They’re expendable creatures that will do what she tells them or else they’ll suffer horrible deaths… and they’ll suffer horrible deaths regardless anyway, so it’s just easier to go along with what Hagan tells them rather than go against her. I think… for the past two years she’s had one of her minions turn on her and kill her only to have her come back and one time she made them decimate one another, choose which should die, or else the lot of them would be laid to waste. It’s an awful lot of fun.
It would be a lot more fun to kill them if one walked up to Hagan and said they like the movie in the most upbeat way possible. Think about the setup for comedy.
Minion: “Hey, that seen was pretty good!”
Hagan: “Did you not see the BULLSHIT?! *stab*.”
I felt like doing a villain because id never seen an ‘evil’ reviewer. the weird lighting and makeup were done because id never seen anyone do that before.
You are? Awesome!
*sigh* I kind of have mixed feelings about this. While I’m open to new people reviewing things, this person just doesn’t work. I can’t even get myself to watch the video because of the makeup and style. With these reviews it’s best to have bright colors and charismatic, interesting characters. This “Diamanda” just isn’t interesting, while she may have funny jokes they’re lost in her monotone voice. If she is playing a character I suggest something different, the heavy make-up just looks creepy, and is a huge turn-off for me. Take a few tips from Spoony, if you want to play a character when reviewing that’s fine, but make it a fun and crazy character like Insano, or perhaps a character like the Nostalgia Critic, who can be an asshole sometimes, but is still funny to watch. Great effort, but it needs some work.
I kinda don’t see her changing, since she’s been that character for over 2 years now I think.
I personally don’t really care for the character herself, but I like her reviews.
Given that she’s been playing her character on her own without TGWTG to back her until now for the past two(?) years…
I love it when a different TGWTG producer has a video posted on this site. It’s about the only time I ever read the comments. I could go back and read the comments on the Film Brain crossover this second and still get a chuckle.
Anyway, I do enjoy Hagan’s work (and the majority of Film Brain’s for that matter) and this was no exception. The major criticism I would make about her videos in general is just that they go a little too long. Her stuff seems to hover around the 25 minute mark, but if she could edit the script and cut a few of the weaker jokes to get the video into the 15-20 minute range, it would really help the pacing overall. At the heart of things, it’s all just silly videos for the internet, and it’s easier to invest 15 minutes into an internet video than 30. (note-there are exceptions to every rule though. Hell, Plinkett’s review of the Phantom Menace was about as long as the movie itself and that’s the apex of this whole genre)
I’d like to leave on one question for other fans, who on TGWTG would you like to see Spoonydo a video with that he hasn’t worked with yet? Not counting Kickassia or Suburban Knights obviously. My answer is easy, ToddInTheShadows. I think Todd’s delivery and sense of humor would go over well on this site actually. God knows what Spoony would review with the pop music guy, but it would be fascinating.
“I’d like to leave on one question for other fans, who on TGWTG would you
like to see Spoonydo a video with that he hasn’t worked with yet?”
I’d say Nostalgia Chick. I think their personas could make for a good contrast.
I dunno, after that Spooning With Spoony incident, it might be kind of awkward.
“Why does my Ass hurt?”
Ah, THAT was a good crossover. I think we all agree on that.
I know this isn’t really an answer to your question, but I would so much like to see another review with Linkara and the Nostalgia Critic. The “Alone in the Dark” review is one of the best reviews I’ve seen so far.
Oh Diamanda Hagan, how I love her. If I ever grew up, I’d want to rule and be evil just like her. Loved both the review and the cameo, I thought it was fantastic. (Though the fact two of my favorites are in one review together may have me biased.)
Great video! I love Hagan’s stuff and Spoony’s cameo was golden. I’m just shuddering that game actually exists. I may try to do a Let’s Play of it soon…
Oh God, that’s a horrible thought, but it would be so funny to listen to Spoony talk during it.
I would love to see him rip it a new one…
If this isn’t to your taste then hey fair enough,but try to keep it civil and constructive .you should at least respect the fact she got off her ass and is giving it a go.
Yeah, I can respect that.
A lot of people seem to forgetting that. I didn’t like this video, but I’m not going insane over it.
Yes. At least give her some respect instead of automatically writing her off as a reject given a place on the site. that I can agree with.
Honestly, not bad. It’s not the best review I’ve ever seen and this persona of hers isn’t my cup of tea (Even if it was, the persona’s theme is never exploited to the point that it becomes really funny or necessary. It’s just used as an excuse for the occasional “minion” gag. Personally, I think Spoony himself did the evil reviewer thing better during his Ferris Bueller review. Of course, this is mostly nitpicking.). However, I was entertained, and I am looking forward to seeing her future reviews.
Oh, and to all you assholes who choose to express your dislike of a reviewer with inappropriate and downright cruel comments, you do know that there are constructive ways to criticize somebody’s work, right? Or you could just not watch the video.
Spoony fans are unhappy with a video that was done by someone other than Spoony…
A bit unheard of really… better get these results to the lab for re-analysis something’s not right here.
I know your body is falling apart like a dollar store pizza cutter, but who do we have to blow to get new content on this site?
This review is very nice. It is in character that Hagan reviews this particular movie and Spoony’s hilarious cameo complements the whole thing perfectly. I think that most of the comments are very sharp witted. I like the dryness of “oh no, she has seen the appendices” and the pointer that it’s pretty insensitive to use stock footage of real fighting and people in misery to make your movie look better. My only criticism is that the review is indeed a little bit too long.
But speaking of misery…
NOTE: Hayden and Alexander: Of course it is a sexist insult to call a woman a man if you base your criticism on it and put “girl” in quotation marks. It is disparaging and obviously a try to call her deviant (based on her sexuality) and therefore freaky and unwatchable.
And Alexander, it isn’t a good argument to say that it is okay to judge people by their looks because everybody else does this too. “Majority”-arguments aren’t working, because it would mean – in reverse – that everything the majority does is okay.
I don’t get why you have to be insulting. Would you say the things you said in somebody’s face if he was standing right in front of you? Especially just to point out that you didn’t like a REVIEW? Sorry, but I can’t picture that.
That was a pretty good review. I don’t know really anything about this critic. I loved the part where she blocked out the screen with X’s until it was blank.
Also, what was up with the cheesy stupid “DOUBLE JESUS FANFARE” every time the Day changed?
Christian Spoony is possibly creepier than the Fruity Magician.
the double jesus fanfare was lifted from jesus christ vampire hunter. thought it was funny.
glad you liked the review!
I thought that was actually part of the movie.
Yeah, overall I thought the review was pretty well edited together.
I, like Rosenbaum there, thought the “Double Jesus Fanfare” was part of the actual movie. Haha, that’s awesome. I didn’t know it was a joke. When you have a movie like this, it’s hard to distinguish what’s a joke and what’s trying to be serious… like the neatly folded clothes.
Oh Wow. Wow. The Spoonyherd needs to take a damn chillpill. I love Spoony to pieces. I love all of these guys to pieces. I started off watching Spoony on youtube for crying out loud! But bitching about Diamanda because her reviewing style is a bit different, or Film Brain, or anyone else that Spoony works with is just not cool. This is the Lecher Bitch’s persona. If you’ve not seen her on TGWTG before, look her up. She’s there. Look up her site. Look up her blip. She can be easily found and this is what she does as The Lecher Bitch. While it’s strange at first you get used to it and it’s funny as hell. Same goes for Film Brain. He’s different.
There are other people in this world other than Spoony.
Now that that’s done…. I loved this and I loved your cameo, Spoony! The moment she pointed out the guy had the same profile as you I realized that… good Lord, he really Does. That’s a bit scary. Good on you, man!
I actually like Film Brain. This is just too much. I have nothing against Hagan as a person though. I’m sure see’s a fine woman.
-.o Too Much? I understand if it’s not what you like, because we all have different tastes, but you’ve been one of the more vocal against Hagan on here as being a waste of space.
Too much, as in Hagan’s style is just too much.
Well, I suppose we just differ on that. I think her style is hilarious, but I also like the Critic, Spoony, Snob, Oancitizen, Lupa, Linkara, Phelous, Buster and so on. I enjoy a wide range of TGWTG and think it’s unfair to consistently swarm into an angry mob with a pitchfork simply because it’s Spoony in someone else’s video.
This is the first time I’ve ever commented on a video in this fashion. I was the one laughing at these guys getting pissed at the Tekken 2010 review, which I liked. I didn’t like Hagan already, and I tried to give her a chance before, but I could never get into it. I only came here to read the comments, and then ended up responding to some guy talking about sexism for no reason, and one thing let to another.
again. I think that’s entirely unfair for everyone to do. It’s like Spoony fans have become some sort of fringe cult and they routinely root out members that don’t follow their mindset that spoony is and always will be the best that comedy has to offer. It isn’t right. It isn’t true. And consistently complaining about other reviewers where spoony cameos is ridiculous and incredibly stupid.
I still think were all addicted to the sound of his voice.
That man could say ANYTHING, read from a phonebook, recite Beethoven to a plate grapes, and we would still watch it.
I saw that. You and him really gave that poor guy a flogging. That other guy was really egging you on too. I think he was a troll, and for some reason you got caught up in the moment and teamed up with him.
Sorry Spoony I love your work, but WTF was this? I would of rather stuck a dirty syringe under my fingernails until i hit bone, then even tried to find your cameo in that cluster fuck that was suppose to be a video.
Why do you say something like this?
Cause he thinks that being obnoxious makes him cool. Sorry to breake it to you but being obnoxious doesn’t makes you cool, just makes you obnoxious.
Or…he didn’t like the video.
Okay… What’s wrong with just saying “I don’t like the video.”?
He can express how much he dislikes something however he likes. What’s wrong with you saying “I like the video” and not responding to other people, trying to persecute their opinions.
Hayden, if he doesn’t like the video, it’s fine. I would and will never mind. But I do mind if people insult others in horrible and childish ways, because they don’t like a review. If you, say, paint a picture or write a text or produce something else and somebody would come directly to you and say, “Hayden, your xy sucks, it’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen, it’s like puking into a toilet and then stepping into it. And your an asshole because you produced it.”, you would be offended and you would think that it’s totally inappropriate. And you were right. It is – indeed- NOT okay to behave in such a manner and therefore he can NOT express himself in this way (of course he can because he can obviously type, but he just shouldn’t). Human society does not work if you treat other people like shit over something so trivial.
Please mind that I vote for insulting people in ways far worse than this, if they deserve it (if they, for example, beat up their children etc.).
His insult was shitty, stale, and over done, but I’m still fine with him doing it. I do produce videos myself, but if someone commented that I wouldn’t cry about it, or want people sticking up for me. If you make a series and people like it, why would you be listening to the people who don’t like your stuff, instead of the people who do?
I would feel the same way I feel now if I watched one of your videos and somebody commented in the aforementioned way, because to me it doesn’t matter if you or Hagan or Spoony listened to the insulting comments (by God I hope you and they don’t). It is a matter of principle that does not only concern you, but everybody. People should not treat each other this way!
Btw, sometimes I write stories and of course I’m listening to people who don’t like them (as long as it is constructive criticism, otherwise I get mad), because I want to improve my stories.
Okay, how far should I be able to go with my insults? What jokes do you consider to be within ‘good taste’, and which jokes are unacceptable to you?
By the way, Spoony tweeted a reminder for the fans to ‘behave themselves’. So yes, Spoony is sticking up for Hagan, because he knows this website has a bad reputation for tearing up crossover reviewers. That’s exactly what happened.
Not really. You can be an asshole AND explain your dislike for something at the same time.
Ohh Hayden, once more let me just explain that my argument is not against not liking the review, just not being an ass about it. Buy how could you understand that when you just posted that Hagan is a reject and laughed in a very mean manner. But hey, why should I give a damn.
She is a reject. It’s not an insult, it’s true. Her style apes TGWTG tropes, even before she was a member of the site. I’s just a term for someone who acts like and wants to be on TGWTG. Blockbusterbuster is another one. They still don’t mesh well with the legitimate content providers there. But I say again, I have nothing against Hagan. I’m sure SHE is a fine woman, I just think her character and reviews are stupid. That’s more than can be said about others like her.
Huh, I didn’t think that was the definition of reject. I always considered the term reject to mean “outcast” or “loser”. And, if she is a member of the site, she cannot possibly be a reject because the site ACCEPTED her.
Because apparently anything that isn’t Spoony is therefore horrible.
Oh wow, revelations Spooney was pretty creepy. I’d like to see more of him.
I like Diamonda just fine, though I don’t think that review was one of her funnier ones.
Oh my God, it’s the SPOONY-VALNGALIST!!!
Spoony-vangalist: “…for Jesus Christ is the Lord and Savior. Blessed to those who bask in his everlasting light, and…”
RUN!!! Hide the children! AHG!!!
So we’ve got Spoony, Dr. Insano, Black Lantern Spoony, Clone Spoony, Ultimate Warrior Spoony, Hulk Hogan Spoony, Fruity Magician Spoony, Female Spoony, Squall Spoony, Tidus Spoony, the Spoony Bum, and now Christian Spoony. That’s not including the three Spoony look-a-likes (Travis from Phantasmagoria, the kid from that Make My Video game, and real-life Christian Spoony). It’s almost as if…he’s replicating. Run! Run from the Spoony Collective! Run before you are assimilated!
We are the Spoony. Existence, as you know it, is over. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile.
Dibs on 80′s Cliche-Persona Spoony!
I don’t mind giving up my free will, but the Mullet stays! Assimilate away, baby!
Who….what….I….is this a joke? I couldn’t even finish this. It’s painful. It’s not funny, not even entertaining, it’s just….odd. I’ve never heard of this person and I’m honestly not sure if they’re actually female or effeminate male. I’m not trying to be mean, but I seriously just don’t get this….
Come on Brendan, it’s actually a rather funny review and while I admit that it took me completely by surprise, I warmed up to the oddness of her character pretty quickly. She’s got a nice dry delivery and as a character reviewer I’ve seen a lot worse.
First, if Miss Hagan does read these comments would it not be better to leave usable criticism. Therefore, I personally did not like this review and this being my second time ever being exposed to her work. One can safely say that I am not going to start watching her material. However she does have some interesting ideas and is doing decently with her shtick. I must agree with a previous commentator that you need to shorten your reviews to give them a more cohesive and quick feeling. Changes in your monotone voice can help. Bearing in mind the subject matter was very poor and hard to work from and as a christian I can say yes most christian films have little to know idea of how to make a movie nor do they trully understand the subject matter of what they preach some times.
I hope you the best Miss Hagan in future endevours and who knows perhaps in a future outing you can encourage me to watch you offerings.
Thank you, Jolly
I agree wholeheartedly on the matter than there should be constructive criticism. Seriously, what’s the point of Spoony showing us one of his fellows, or even someone brand new to reviewing if all anyone does is shoot them down by saying they’re shit in comparison to Spoony?
He posted it because he made a cameo in it, and felt that it would look like he actually puts content up on this site.
Just like he posted the Musical NC review, just because he made a 2 second cameo.
THANK YOU!!! Finally someone other than me admits it. ”It’s just an embed, it’s just content from another site, you can just ignore it.” Bullshit!
I don’t want to navigate around an ocean of VLogs and one shot cameos to get to an older review. You don’t think it matters, but that adds up every time you have to scroll to the bottom and wait for the next page to load.
-.o I like his Vlogs. I can listen to Spoony rant and rave about this or that or listen to him talk about his gaming adventures for hours. I’m patient enough to wait for his other content so maybe you all should be as well. Besides, Spoony isn’t the only one that is fun to watch out there.
You do realize that the videos are archived, right? If you click on the video list button, you won’t have to go through all the vlogs.
The archives don’t always get updated in a timely manner, and there are videos that can’t be found in any of the give archives. You have to find it manually.
And EVEN THEN, it still doesn’t completely fix the problem. Yeah, it filters out most of the content, but not ALL. Getting rid of clearly bad content would help a lot.
All of that said, the archives do mostly fix the problem, but it isn’t perfect.
Jeez, can Spoony have ANY video on his site of a person that isn’t him and have it not be utterly despised by everyone? Fuck’s sake.
Disclaimer: I have not watched the video yet.
To answer your question: Yes. If people believe it rivals Spoony’s level of quality, they won’t hate it.
One example that proves my point: http://spoonyexperiment.com/2011/08/28/anime-abandon-mad-bull-34/
I didn’t hop on the bandwagon for beating on Film Brain, in case you were wondering why I dare argue with you. Get this: Spoony’s fans are generally not asskissers. They don’t bullshit him. I greatly admire that about this site. You look in the comments and you’ll find what people actually THINK. On a lesser site? Well… Have you SEEN the videos of people pretending to mourn Kim Jong-Il?
Actually…that’s true. That’s a very good observation.
Average reviewers, when paired with Spoony (or Brad or NC or someone else of legendary status) will usually look like shit by comparison. And they will carry that cross with them in later reviews, when Spoony fans who previously had no problem with them start throwing angry bitch fits about ‘how much they suck’ and ‘how bad their crossovers are’.
I’ll concede that the scenes with the minions didn’t do much for me, but I like the style of the review itself.
There is a mountain of difference between not being an “asskisser” and being an asshole.
A load of Spoony’s commenters don’t seem to understand basic etiquette. The most common thing I see here, in fact, is shit like “is that a woman or a man!?” and other crap like that.
Fact of the matter is, Spoony participates in these things because he respects his friends and co-workers. Heaping amazing quantities of vitriol and disrespect on his peers is, in fact, disrespectful to HIM as well… As noted by the fact that he has at least once mocked his own fans for it. Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s done it a few times, honestly.
As my first Diamanda video, I have to say I loved this. Her character aesthetic is odd for sure, but her reviewing and sardonic comedic style is solid and that’s what counts.
I hadn’t even got to Spoony’s cameo yet, and already there were a few solid chuckles.
And oh dear god, Rev. Spoony was creepy. I still maintain Spoony the Magician is the bet creepy character though.
I agree the review is a tad too long, but she remains strong throughout the whole thing, which is a plus.
I think I’ll go and look back through her catalogue. She’s definitely piqued my interest.
To the critics: Try this yourself. Stand in front of a camera, and make jokes with no on the spot feedback, then post it online for others to see. Until you have done the work, you can’t pass judgement on someone who has. Grow up.
i’ve got camera, i’ll do it!
oh wait, i am not a funny or charismatic person, so i’ll better just stay out of this,
believe me it’s better this way, you wouldn’t want to watch me trying to do this sort of thing, i just know i would get a massive negative feedback – just like Diamanda here. Can you see a corelation here, or atleast childish logic of your argument?
“Grow up.” – that is funny, coming from you
Try this yourself: Write a negative comment about this video. Until you have done the work, you can’t pass judgment on someone who has. Grow up.
Spoony put this up here so he must be ok with it ,its not a big deal .if you want more video`s from Spoony, i hardly think insulting somebody hes trying to give a brake and was willing to make a video with is going to make that happen.And to those saying bah she`s just ripping off xyz there was a tv show here called blizzard of odd back in 2001.with a dude from the same general area reviewing really naff films .and to me there’s bits of that in there along with many other`s which is fine .it takes time to refine a reviewing style and all reviewers have some gimmick or other.ask a hundred people who their top 5 reviewers are and you`l get a fair mix.nobody is holding a gun to your head shouting you must like this.so why get that worked up you have to make personal insults about somebody you know nothing about ? if its not for you fine that`s perfectly ok but don’t spit the dummy lol
First video of the new year on Spoony’s website is not even his own? How lazy is that. I tried to check this video out but I’m not wasting 27minutes of my life on whatever this was. It wasn’t funny nor interesting enough to watch. If it was a good that be a different story…but it just wasn’t. This being the “Spoony” experiment people come here to expect “Spoony” not random GWTG person inserted here but it’s cool I get it. Maybe people might watch the video and she’d earn some fans except she’s getting criticism. I don’t think people like myself at least disliked the video because it wasn’t a spoony 2 hour Spoony Vlog (I hate that too) it was that it wasn’t entertaining and on top of that it’s almost half an hour!
It’s a good thing you’re not paying for any of that, right?
Gotta love those people that feel entitled to be entertained on their own terms for free and on a regular basis.
Spoony is very much dependent on returning viewers. Don’t act like this is some kinda blue cross thing. Noah gets paid because of people like you and me, shocking I know.
I think it’s time to stop using the argument “It is free entertainment so don’t be picky” deal.If a reviewer is regularly uploading content on blip it means they do this thing with professionalism and get payed.I personally did not have a problem with this video.Some of it worked and parts of it did not so much for me, but I can safely say I don’t feel I wasted my time.
Oh boy! Not the You should like this because it’s free! argument.
It’s called criticism and it’s a part of life. Because something is offered without a price doesn’t make it exclusive from being criticized. This being the internet aside from paidpornisites what really isn’t free to view? Youtubes free and even that features a like or dislike button…there’s a reason for that. Not everyone is going to like what you make. This is entertainment it comes with the territory deal with it. You want to be infront of the Camera? Well than get used to people criticizing what you do. That’s entertainment. You want someone to sit down and watch you for half an hour you better give them a damn good reason too. What’s sad is I never said anything against the reviewer to belittle them I just stated my true opinion about the quality and material of the video, it wasn’t good.
Deal with it.
Yeah, remind me which part of that over-bloated mess was supposed to be criticism? That it “was neither funny nor interesting”? That’s interesting because those “criticisms” are neither constructive nor critical.
You see, if this is meant to be taken as criticism of the work than there’s a serious problem with the language, in so much as it’s vague as hell. Humour differs for each person, as do interests. Had you given reason as to why you found this unfunny or uninteresting, this may have been a viable critique. The rest of your tirade does not do this.
The remainder of the comment is you complaining about the lack of content from the site proprietor, which isn’t exactly true, just true in the sense that you find what is posted to be of things that you hate; again I state, interests differ, but that doesn’t give you right to complain to the proprietor. That would be equivalent to me complaining at Macdonalds because I can’t get a breakfast sandwich at three in the afternoon.
The point is, don’t get offensive and try and hide behind the guise of criticism when you’ve brought nothing constructive to the table.
He wasn’t criticizing the video itself. He was just trying t0o talk about the people who give free entertainment a free pass.
Though he did repeat himself for a bit too long, and I do wish he elaborated on his opinion more, he did what he set out to do.
Wow, I never thought I’d see such a comment of a butt hurt person upset because someone said they didn’t like a video. Are you Diamanda Hadens mother? boyfriend? manager? Why are you so set on defending this video as if it were the holy grail?
What makes you think myself or the rest of the world is entitled to enjoy someones awful video because you seemingly enjoyed it? Is this North Korea? are you from North Korea? Last time I checked people were free to post their opinion on the internet and in my country.
The point is, don’t get offensive and make a long winded post about someone stating a video is bad. Don’t get upset and QQ because that said person doesn’t want to waste their time going into full blown out detail about every little aspect of what they didn’t like about a video.
And my question to you is what moron waste their time to be a critic to someones objection. I’m not a reviewer I’m a watcher if you want a full blown on report on why this video sucked waste YOUR own time to do so. I think my original first 3 sentences said enough.
I don’t need to defend my opinion it stand as it is and it’s set and stone.
This video sucked THE END! Get over it! Go QQ to someone elses comment.
Btw, since you also can’t seem to fully read or comprehend a statement without jumping on the first negative remark you see, the “Criticism” I was referring to were the other comments people were making about how they disliked or didn’t enjoy this 27minute God awful amateur youtube vevo video. Not my own. QQ upset fan.
I don’t even see where you’ve postulated these opinions from. I never gave any opinion on this video. I merely pointed out that you didn’t actually criticize the video, so when you get defensive with someone else saying how your point was a criticism, I simply pointed out the flaw in your logic.
It’s okay, No one’s trying to take your freedom of speech from you. You can put your shotgun back on the gun rack in your wooden shack. You’ll excuse me for calling you out on your desperate attempts to sound superior to those who criticize your opinion. At least I can get to the point in a few sentences without calling you Hitler.
“you didn’t actually criticize the video” Good work there Einstein. You finally realizing I was speaking about other people making their opinions and being criticized by geniuses like yourself for them not blowing flowers and sunshine up the reviewers ass because the video actually sucked and they stated it. This video is Sh*t with a capital S.
Btw wtf are you trying to say in your reply shotguns and gunracks? Hitler? Postulated? You sound like a buffoon trying to convince people they’re intelligent with your analogies and improper word use. I got news for you… it ain’t working.
haha, because swearing and slandering people will prove your point.Woe is the day someone should form a counter-argument to your whining, apparently. I get it, you don’t like TGWTG’s crew? Fine. I don’t like some reviewers on there either. I don’t give a shit how you felt about the video, which is a point your apparently not getting.
It’s that you make sweeping arguments full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. It’s that you reverse someone’s argument by saying “don’t pick on me for hating this, I’m criticizing, therefore I’m immune” whilst letting that be your argument against people telling you not to complain because it’s free entertainment. Most of all, it’s that you can’t seem argue anything without resulting to pre-school name calling. That’s the reason I’ve argued with you for this long.I’m done here, learn to form a cohesive argument or at least one that doesn’t revolve around the belittlement of those with opposed opinions. If I’m seen as a buffoon, that’s fine; at least that’s a step up from your childish crying.
I never swore or slandered anyone, and I also never bothered to read past the first 4 words you just typed.
Seriously Get a life dude I’m tired of going to my Gmail inbox and seeing a reply to my comments in this video. I don’t care what you think nor am I bothering to read what you type.
And thus the conversation ends with a bad case of TL;DR.
I actually read Glenn Davies comment. You lost this argument.
I just had this conversation about two hours ago. One day I WILL make a series about bad Internet arguments. You will RUE the day you did this!
How do you know this review wasn’t any good if you didn’t watch it all the way through? The most you can say is that you didn’t like the part you saw. And, I wouldn’t say he’s being lazy considering it’s the holidays and he posted a video last week. I’d rather he take the time and make reviews of good quality rather than just churn out schlock.
While this may not be a review of his, his bit in the review is very funny and would’ve taken some effort to film.
“How do you know this review wasn’t any good if you didn’t watch it all the way through”
I knew someone was going to say something like that. I did it the same way a normal person would look at anything that doesn’t hold their interest… I skimmed through it.
Ok, that’s fair enough. You didn’t say that in your previous post so it sounded like you watched the first few minutes of it and gave up.
…which would be perfectly legitimate in itself. If it couldn’t hold one’s interest a third of the way in, it’s reasonable to assume that the next two thirds aren’t going to make up for it.
Spoony dares put another persons video on his own site?!?!?!!?!?!??!
HERESY!!! GET ME A COMMISSAR!!!!!!
*insert rabid, vapid, increasingly desperate excuses to take the comment seriously and not write it off as a troll as it deserves here*
CLEANSE THE IMPURE!
Sorry Diamanda, you’re just not very good at this. Wake me up when Spoony gets back
I like the way ejits on here are even bitching at Spoony for being lazy and slagging off some of his video`s.you reach over your beer belly hit play shout dance for me monkey boy dance ,and when you don’t get what you want you throw a hissy fit.
Taking the time to read this may have helped “Diamanda Hagan’s latest review offers a shocking glimpse into yet another alternate Spoonyverse!” Who`s lazy now ?
I certainly won’t ever complain about the lack of content by spoony since he obviously has things to deal with, but I can understand why people will get disappointed when they open up TSE and find a new video that is not spoony’s.As for the “dance monkey dance” part of your comment I find it completely inappropriate.Spoony’s fans keep the site alive and enable him to do what he loves they are certainly not taking advantage of him or vice versa.So fans should be able to voice their opinion about the content of the site (in a polite and civil manner).
Pffft, screw those writing off Hagan, she’s a gem of the community and Spoonbabe’ll produce when he produces.
Until then, hail to the Lecher Bitch!
HAIL TO THE LECHER BITCH!
…….Spoonbabe. I’ll have to remember that. It applies.
I actually liked this. There’s something about her delivery and while I admit, her character caught me off guard but I warmed up to her. I’ll have to check out the rest of her work.
Try her review of Bonekickers its an awful TV show .
I’m a fan of her show, I was so happy to see her here.
Am I the only one who thought she was a man wearing juggalo makeup at first? :I
well I didn’t like it, couldn’t even watch it to the end but that doesn’t mean its bad it’s just not my style of review, when I got to the middle I just paused and started to go forward ’til a found Spoony and then after 2 minutes I stoped it. I don’t want to be mean but she has to change something in there, maybe the lenght and the character and the black and white thing.
I am pretty ashamed to be a Spoony fan right now. I have never seen a fan base act so childish and wretched before.
Honestly, the look kind of threw me for a while. But, I thought she was really funny for the most part (although she did kind of use the logic molestation joke one too many times).
Every time there’s a different kind of video on TSE a million voices cry out in whining, childish, bitching pain.
because they’re not very good. nobody was complaining when he did a collab with Doug — it rocked!
Did this in text form about 5-6 months ago.
Yes, I’m shamelessly plugging my shitty blog. Big whoop, wanna fight about it?
I like how there are more people complaining about the people complaining than there are people actually complaining. Meta-complaining if you will.
WELL NOW I’M META-META-COMPLAINING, WHAT NOW?! D:<
You’ve come down with a case of Phelousitis.
You’re infected with the P-Virus!
I really wish Spoony would actually do reviews… I know, I’m the jerk. But seriously, when you think back of old spoony where he devotes tons of energy, time, and tallent, it’s hardly a comparrison. Sewer Shark was bloody awesome. This… this isn’t even Spoony and it blows. Pick it up man. We enjoy you making jokes at something we all love to hates expense. Not broad casting some Jesus Hating Emo no body instead of posting a video once every two months.
I half agree. He has said before that he is working on the FF stuff and that he is still recovering a bit from his health problems. I just wish he wouldn’t plug in all these random reviewers..
While I understand he can’t always be making videos because of time, his health, having a life…could he at least upload videos from people we know of? I started the video thinking it’s Spoony but it’s some random girl with a really weird voice…I gave it a few minutes but it’s no where close to the usual content.
Sorry, if that’s considered bad to the “true fanboys” but I just wished that we’d see more of Spoony and less plugging of random people.
- The ‘funny voice’ is a regional accent specific to Northern Ireland.
- People ‘we know of’? I ‘know of’ her.
- The guy can plug whomever he cares to, that’s his choice. If you don’t like it don’t watch, donate or buy merchandise – that’s meritocracy. Of course, constructive criticism is a great thing but… I can’t see much.
- It specifically states her name above the video in fourteen-odd point font. Noah is just a guy in Arizona who makes videos for his website. People like them enough to give their patronage and money, true enough, but It’s still his site, his videos. Some of you guys are trolling, that much is obvious, but the ones that bug me are the ones that seem to genuinely have some sense of entitlement.
Do all women in Northern Ireland sound like men? I think this is what he meant by “funny voice”
There is something called BRANDING and spoony damages by putting up subpar quality. If you really did care about spoony you wouldnt want him to damage his brand.
Uhuh. Sure. That totally justifies acting like an entitled child.
One again, you can’t give an informed opinion of a video unless you watch the whole thing. You are right about everything else, and I’m happy that you said that constructive criticism is valid. Some posters seem to think that ANY sort of criticism is insulting and wrong. So I’m not as angry at you.
You are the tenth person I’ve seen so far who has this opinion. Yes, I am keeping score.
I don’t see what the problem is with her accent. She sounds like a female Lister from ‘Red Dwarf’. That’s a good thing in my book.
at least its not that british guy again…
Guru Larry or Film Brain? Either way they both blow balls.
Film Brain > Guru Larry.
At least Film Brain doesn’t have awkward pauses between his points when he gives a review like Guru Larry, as if each line was edited separately. If your going to watch Larry, watch his VLogs and Let’s Plays. At least they sound like a natural, candid human being.
Also, why complain about Film Brain’s accent, when his accent isn’t even close to the sheer ear-rape that is Phelous or the unintelligible slurring of Benzai. And Larry sounds like he has cotton in his mouth.
no, its a british girl. LOL Ignorance cookie for you!
That would be an irish girl. Ignorance pie for you.
Man, I call Spoony a drama queen for the anger he levels at his fans from time to time, but I swear it’s completely deserved now and then. Hagan’s videos are pretty good, and it isn’t like this was a completely random plug. He cameo’d in this.
Anyway, looking forward to more content. Ignore the stupid comments par standard, keep up the good work, et cetera.
Hagan is Northern Irish. Northern Ireland belongs to Great Britain.
Northan Ireland, which is in britain
I have to agree partially that this video was disappointing because I was hoping for a Spoony video. Even though I hated Guru Larry and Hagan I remind myself that Spoony introduced me to the Cinema Snob and even got me interested in Sage’s show Anime Abandoned. I know that the guy has health problems but I wonder if the future of this site is just going to be him posting Youtube videos of songs he likes and it will become a free ad for online critics everywhere.
The argument that it’s free entertainment isn’t completely true. The last time I checked Spoony made these videos for a living by accepting our money.
I saw her reviews on TGWTG a month or so ago, & I had to turn it off. It felt like I was watching a fever dream or a mth addict’s hallucinations. I wish her success, but I won’t be watching her stuff. It made me feel creepy all over.
Please people. Give it up. Is this your personal website? No. This is the Spoony Experiment. Not the “insert your name here” Experiment. This posting was Spoony’s call! As such, perhaps the fact that a guy you like and “respect” finds Diamanda Hagan talented enough to merit a plug on his own personal website, means that she’s actually good? Seriously how many of you commented on this video before watching her? She is really good. I highly recommend her stuff. So before being judgmental prigs who believe that if Spoony’s personal website is ruined forever because of him giving press to a great performer, perhaps you should, and I know it’s a stretch with the comments I’ve seen, open up your peanut sized minds and expand your horizons!
Chill out bro, the internet is not serious business. No one’s saying stuff like the site is ruined forever they are just voicing their opinion on this one particular video. No need to get mad just cuz some people have different tastes. I didn’t like it much myself but she’s certainly not the worst reviewer spoony’s ever posted.
I just react strongly to so many people jumping on the hate bandwagon. It just boils my blood. I have the same reaction to hateful youtube comments.
I think most people don’t like her because she sucks (she does in this review). Not because she is not Spoony.
I’m sure everyone who disliked it came to the same conclusion entirely on their own: “This woman(?) is dull”.
This is because:
1. They couldn’t identify what her schtick was; sounding like a Beatle after a rum binge and plying on the make up like that, the notion of “She’s a man” is entirely plausible.
2. They watched the video. They were bored of it when they stopped watching.
So, does this mean that you’ve become a minion?
Meh, I’d tell you to run away now, but the Lecher Bitch probably already had her sights on already. So you’re already dead. Just waiting for a whim and a bullet.
I wouldnt mind this kind of thing apart from its spoonys site and he never posts anything anymore, I mean i know spoony is having problems which arent his fault but id rather nothing than these strange people ive never heard of
allow me to add, although i watched hagans review and found it to be alright i just get gutted logging in every day to see if spoony finally returned and then i see a odd named video, watch it and its someone else, as you said godmars, its the spoony experiment. Im just sad he hasnt been around and i miss him you know its nothing personal against hagan who i say again isnt too shabby a reviewer
I seriously don’t understand this. This isn’t funny and it’s quite horrible. Corpse paint? I really don’t get it.
She’s a female..
“That thing’s a guy?!”-Krillin, DBZ Abridged
‘That guy’ is a guy in the same way you are; she’s not.
All I can say to this is… sorry?
Whoa! I’m reading a whole bunch of negative comments here.
Well, I’ll just say this. I don’t really mind if people like or dislike this review. Everyone has different opinions. I personally thought it wasn’t too bad, I did get a few laughs here and there. This is my first time seeing a review from Diamanda, and I think she might just have to get her style down a little more. Sometimes it was kind of confusing on what she wanted to go for. I did like the idea of a villain character reviewing movies, but I felt like it should have been more dwelled upon or something. She does have potential though, for there were times when I laughed at her jokes, I just think that she may want to define her style more. :)
Although I don’t think Spoony posting this is being “lazy.” He went through a really tough time, so I’m not expecting him to be posting a video every week right off the bat. :) Besides, he always posts videos that he makes cameos in anyways, so why the hate? Because it’s someone different? Whether you like the review or not is your opinion, but please don’t go trolling on Spoony because he hasn’t posted a Spoony review since the last one. Give him some time, and more reviews will be on there way. Quality over quantity. :D
I’m very sorry and I mean no offense, of course. But, I am not a fan of this girl at all. It’s neither funny nor shocking, or whatever the hell she is going for. I wish her luck, but I won’t be watching or supporting.
Seeing all these negative comments for Hagan has made me think, maybe Spoony should’nt promote other people, I don’t mean this in a negative way to Hagan, I’m a fan of hers, have been since before she joined TGWTG but this outright bile spewing backlash is just childish. I can understand if people don’t like her reviews, fine, but to just make out right attacks thats not on. Would be a shame for Spoony to stop promoting others though as it was due to him plugging Brad that I got into the Cinema Snob but if elements of his fan base can’t act like mature adults might be for the best.
Keep up the good work Diamanda.
Don’t let the crying brats bother you, there are already several comments of people who didn’t knew Hagan and said they were interested in watching her videos, so I think Spoony did a good job posting the review here. The hate commenters can only make hate comments, they just won’t watch her stuff and that’s it, but they can’t take away all the people that, having posted or not, will now start checking out the videos of someone they didn’t know about and found to be interesting.
So yeah, there is no such thing as bad publicity, Spoony should keep supporting other reviewers in spite of some people launching a jihad of distasteful comments, destined not to criticize but to hurt, every time they smell blood.
I like your comment better. Thanks for saying this!
yeah. Same here. It was through Spoony that I found Brad and just Adore him endlessly. (God, that voice. Speak more, you sexy man…. pardon me.) However, it Is his own site and he has every right to post whatever he chooses be it V-Log or cameos. It’s His site. Then again, it’s best if he doesn’t put his cameos on here because everyone will bitch endlessly about them.
I’m not saying he should’nt at all, what I’m saying is to stop this backlash he may not wish to post these types of videos, it’ll suck, but atleast it’ll keep the more rabid and nasty fans in their cages and not let out to froth at the mouths and generally act like a bunch of hooting jerks.
Oh lawdy I dun wanna be watchin’ no reviews from Flabber from Beetleborgs D:
I just want to clarify my previous post that got me banned,
by f…ing garbage – I meant this review – not a person, I can bet anyone that she is splendid girl irl, but as a v-reviewer she is not very good.
Having camera and passion is not enough, there are number of requirements to met.
- you have to be able to feel and act naturally in front of camera, otherwise your acting will look forced, you need to have some charisma, otherwise you will be just forgetable, you have to be a fun person, otherwise you will apear as dull…
to counter in advance some of argument of Hagan defenders,
I like Film Brain, I like Cinema Snob, i have nothing against occasional cameos and featured other critics videos, but god dammit, if imo they suck, and I feel like commenting,
i’ll do it!
I admit, I can sometimes be unintentionaly offencive, as proven by this ban,
guess I have to apologize now… uhm – NEVER!
I don’t usually comment on any videos on the site since, most of the time, someone has stated the same exact thing that I would say. But I feel like there is a lot negativity towards this video so I wanted to offer my thoughts in a constructive manner.
First off, I watched this video for 5 minutes and literally shut it off because i couldn’t watch anymore. Then a few hours later I decided that I wasn’t giving Diamanda a fair shot so I re-watched it. Quite frankly, this was a very difficult watch for me.
I find that good reviews need to be entertaining and/or informative. I felt this review was neither. There was not a single joke that made me even grin, let alone laugh. While there was some information given the whole review seemed lacking. The only thing that I can remember learning from this review is that “Apocalypse” has bad production values.
What is something good that you can take away is the effort that Diamanda has put forth. She really is trying to put out a good product. I hope she just keeps working on her craft and get a little more polished in her writing and delivery. A higher production value would also help but I won’t fault her for that since I don’t know her financial situation.
With all that being said, I don’t think I will be watching anymore of her reviews in the near future. Even if she gets better production, better jokes, etc., I am not fan of her style. I am, by no means, suggesting that she changes for me or for anyone else. But her look, sound, mannerisms, etc. is simply not my cup of tea. I truly hope she gets better and makes a product that is much improved. In the future, I would like to say that I didn’t watch because of substance/style rather than quality.
Good luck Diamanda.
I think this was another Experience Bij.
I made it to 7:26. Beat that!
a challenge, huh?
okay, uhm.. i give up
aaah.. only 6:10 for me:(
Oh no. I’m not watching that again just to keep track of when I quit.
15:56 if you want to skip ahead to Spoony.
Christ people, what’s with the negativity? It’s not like you paid to watch this. If you don’t like it, fine, but there’s no reason to be this hateful. It’s not that hard to just ignore it; all it takes is a couple of clicks.
Most of you would never dare to say the things you write to someone in person.
There isn’t much to point to leaving comments open if they exist solely to shower praise on the video. I figured they were for feedback.
“This doesn’t quite work for me; try improving your timing, and keep your videos shorter” is feedback. “The premise is interesting, but the delivery needs to be much tighter” is feedback. “Thanks for posting, but this just isn’t for me” is feedback. “OMG this sucks how dare you post this shit Spoony I am entitled to something else why does this chick have a silly voice argh!!111″ isn’t feedback, it’s pointless and unpleasant negativity.
I would say a feedback is what you make it to be. That being said, this video was horrible and I was unable to watch through it. An unfunny comedian is more painful to watch than a shrapnel in the ass.
Yes, but for feedback to be in any way constructive (and not just an attack or an expression of one’s own antisocial attitudes) it must come with a modicum of civility. Or a great deal of cleverness and humour, like Spoony’s videos. Random negativity is not the same as comedy or satire, it’s just being a dick for no good reason.
The problem is, no one gives a damn if you think their comment to be constructive. Hell, no one should want to give a damn. And yes, I probably wouldn’t tell him that he (or someone said it’s a she, god forbid) is really awkward, boring and unfunny in the most painful way. But since I don’t have to confront him in any way, shape or form, I can be absolutely honest. You want constructive criticism, but if something sucks shit, I am seriously disinterested in searching for some good in that given thing, to point out flaws and highlight the good.
Honesty is a matter of content, civility a matter of form. “This doesn’t work for me” vs “This is shit.”
Heh. Imagine someone chopping your arm off, to which you calmly respond:
“No, this just won’t work for me. I wish you wouldn’t have done that.”
So watching this video of your own volition is comparable to being attacked and seriously wounded? I see.
Imagine our pain!
Getting your arm chopped off is much worse than this review. You are ignoring the magnitude of the scenario.
It’s really amusing and cute how people took that comment seriously.
Sarcasm doesn’t translate well through text. Without the verbal inflections that normally suggest sarcasm, it’s hard to pick up on it.
Try typing a sarcastic message, then reading it as if it you never saw that message before. You’ll see what I mean.
It was a fair mistake, indeed. It wasn’t really sarcasm as much as it was me being silly, though.
I agree. Then perhaps my civility was not the best, but at least I managed to be 100% honest, rude as it was taken.
And if you’re so disinterested, why go to the effort of typing a comment at all? Why not just say “meh” and go watch something more interesting?
Because if he didn’t watch the whole thing, he could legitimately give an informed opinion.
And…nine. That’s the ninth time I’ve heard that flawed argument in this page.
Err, you might want to re-read what you just posted. I’m not sure it makes sense. Or has anything to do with what I said.
Oh, you said ‘disinterested’. My bad. I thought you were trying to say that ‘if you don’t like this video, don’t say anything negative about it’.
You see, I’m counting the amount of times people say that. Because that opinion is wrong.
Aah, you are one of those people going around the wilds correcting everyone. Well, I certainly thank you for enlightening me about feedback and shrapnel, I had no idea.
Wait, shrapnel? I remember someone else saying that. I think you have me confused for someone else.
But yes, I do like to rove around and comment on really old stuff that no one will ever read. I just happened to be particularly sick of that opinion when I misread your post.
So honesty = rudeness?
Crap. I need to go apologize to everyone I’ve ever said a factual statement or sincere opinion to!
People do care if you act like a twat.
And did I just hear you say that you are hiding behind the Internet to fling your abuse because you know you won’t face any retribution? Well, “since [you] won’t have to confront him in any way”, I guess your safe.
This is commonly known as “Assburgers” or “Internet’s Disease.”
Yup. The hours in surgery with doctors pulling sharp pieces of punchline out of your skin, the months of intensive comedy therapy . . .
Also, “feedback” and “shrapnel” are collective nouns; they refer to a group of things, so you don’t use the indefinite article “a” or “an” with them.
Because this video sucks and were stating it and I WOULD trust me I WOULD say what the same thing in person. Rather I’d Booo!very loudly. Problem? I have a problem with people that try to tell other people what they should think,do,or say. After all, that’s what almost every war in the history of mankind has been about.
No-one is trying to take away your opinion. But whether you like it or not, you have to interact with other people, and a little civility is not that much to ask for. Especially in the context of what is no more than a little bit of entertainment – it’s not like we’re talking about a video made by a war criminal here.
And I severely doubt that you would walk up to someone and say “your video sucks!” The internet allows you to behave this way, but in real life this kind of behaviour gets you punched in the face.
I don’t know about wars, but quite a bit of persecution has started with people who weren’t content to just dislike someone, but had to broadcast their dislike at every opportunity. I mean, why is this entirely free video, which you may choose to stop watching at any time, so important that you have to seek out ways to insult the person who made it?
This video isn’t free. We pay for it with our time when we add to his counter and watch advertisements. You may not think it means much, but for Spoony it adds up into a paycheck.
If I’m going to spend my valuable free time on Spoony’s website, I better get quality content. I am a electrical engineering student, which involves extremely high level math. I bet you’ve never even touched Calculus 2. My time is extremely valuable, and I don’t like to have it wasted.
So any single time you choose to spend your time on something, you see it as a sort of commercial transaction? Even if no-one is forcing you to do so and no actual money changes hands? And this gives you a sense of entitlement about… everything?
And congratulations for thinking that your time is more valuable than other people’s because you do math and trying to imply that my arguments are somehow irrelevant because I don’t. Maybe try spending a little more time on human interaction.
If you didn’t want to “pay” Hagan with your invaluable time, why didn’t you just turn the video off after 30 seconds? Why did you waste your time watching and commenting when you could be engaged with your precious Calculus 2?
This embed is to Hagan’s blip account. Spoony’s not getting paid for you watching this video, genius.
But Hagan is getting paid. Despite that mixup, my point is still valid.
To Jonas: I’m pretty sure that she get’s paid as soon as I load the video. So even after 30 seconds, she still get’s paid. You can still leave early and save time (so time wasn’t a good thing to focus on in my post), but bad entertainers can make lots of money in one video with the right advertisement.
Sorry about commenting on Calculus. I was just worried someone would say “oh, like YOUR time is so valuable, asshole” and try to defeat my argument about how valuable a resource time is. But it came off unintentionally arrogant, and I apologize for it.
No your point is NOT still valid because you weren’t “tricked” into clicking a damn thing. It is entirely up to YOU weather or not you want to click on a video. If you’re really that worried about giving someone 2 tenths of a cent for a few seconds of assertion on weather or not you want to continue watching I think you should rethink being on the internet at all.
How can anyone know a video is good from the first glance? How can someone know NOT to click on a video, or if they should? They can’t know the quality of a video unless the watch the first few seconds.
So the right advertisement CAN trick a lot of people into watching the first few seconds of a video, which is all the video maker needs.
And when you have a large audience, all those clicks add up into a paycheck. I’m not ‘worried about giving someone 2 tenths of a cent’, nor am I really that angry that I lost a few seconds. I’m not being cheated out of anything valuable. I’m just pointing out that a well advertised video can make an unfair profit.
So tell me how this is a trick? The video is clearly marked as a Diamanda Hagan review. The blip window is clearly not labeled as a Spoony video. And as advertised Spoony has a cameo. So please explain where the “trick” is that makes it unfair?
Dude, get a life seriously. Is your life so boring you go online to make statements against other peoples opinions and defend people you don’t even know. Do you have any friends? A social life? A gf/bf or whatever your into? Something to do besides make long winded replies to complete strangers over the internet trying to convince them to like something no one in their right mind should?
Oh, I have a life. That’s why I don’t need to vent so much anger on random reviewers. And I don’t normally get involved in such conversations, since I do agree that they’re mostly pointless, but sometimes the level of negativity gets so high that it feels wrong not to say something, to point out that not everyone is like that.
If replying here is a sign of not having a life, by the way, why are you wasting your time responding to some complete stranger on the internet?
No, really you don’t have a life and stop pretending you do (especially if you had 27mins to waste watching this Diamanda garbage.
“why are you wasting your time responding to some complete stranger on the internet?”
Well Jonas, I’m actually checking my e-mails, you know those things people send you when you have a social life (and no its different from the Nigerian spam that you get). You see when you click the little message you get a link directly to your little comments which brings me to whatever nonsense you last replied. Unlike yourself I’m not scouring this terrible video looking for people to argue with when I see them type something I do not like.
“The feeling of negativity” is high because this video is terrible and I’ve seen better and more interesting performances at the Preschool you attend.
What I’m simply responding too are the vast majority of you GWTG paraders that seem to feel the need you have a right to tell everyone on the internet they should like every video they see just because your GWTG website is full of sh*t and shuns any hint of criticism or objection/actual input provided by a reviewer. The material on that website is on par with this Diamanda video…it’s mostly unoriginal sh*t.
How many reviewers can you have? They all review the same sh*t and cameo and copy off each others styles to death. Instead of having 1 boring/bland person you have 15 clones of them. How many freaking movie/game/anime reviewers do you need?
but that’s a story for another day… in the meantime f-off…. Seriously you need a hobby besides the comment bashing/masturbating.
I hope you see the irony here. It’s kind of beautiful, actually. I have nothing more to add.
Which reminds me why I absolutely refuse to argue with nerds if you haven’t noticed yet I’m only replying to the actions you people make and not the claims of your statements.
If there’s a form of life that has nothing to do and endless time to waste it’s the internet nerd who will argue with anyone over the absolutely dumbest most insignificant sh*t and reply to any comment they see because to them time is nothing. Thou cannot kill that which has no life. Therefore thou cannot out comment thou which has too much time on thy hands because thou lack of life. Enjoy talking to yourself I’m done. Latterz Nerd.
What.. is this… I don’t… even… ugh. So. Awkward.
We don’t get payed to watch it..but they get payed when we watch it.
I’m quite sick of this “plot summary + jokes” style of review, few do it well. This reviewer is not one of them. I cringed at the “Its exactly 4.8% worse” part, and knew it wasn’t going to end well from that point. Was that a joke? Random percentages? There was zero comic timing, very little critical analysis. As someone already said, throwing together a highlight reel and pointing out flaws here and there isn’t that hard. Plus, the corpse paint, really? I dont get the shtick. In jokes/characters like this are a bad idea because they alienate new viewers.
I’m sorry, I hated every minute of this. I don’t like this reviewer at all. This post is just my opinion, and not an Ad hominem attack on Hagan/Diamanda/ Whoever this reviewer is. If you like it, more power to you. Please don’t rip me apart for having an opinion.
Now i don’t need to comment; I totally agree except i didn’t hate his/her/it stuff but i didn’t really care and I felt whole time kind of bored.
I wouldn’t call this corpse paint. It’s more like clown paint. Or maybe a clown’s corpse.
Yeah! Why does Spoony keep complaining about the shitty movies he sees? He should stop making dem videos!
To those that do not like the Diamanda Hagan videos, I recommend giving her ‘Twatty Doctor Who’ reviews a shot. Yes, it’s the same ‘it sucks and this is why’ style, but if the character and presentation turn you off, these are done as a voice over without the character…just her.
And I have to admit, I was not her biggest fan when she first appeared on TGWTG.com…but after taking the time to see a good section of her work, I can now see the appeal. It’s still not often my cup of tea…and honestly if she IS suppose to be a villain, I’d like her to do more villian-eqse things. Seriously DH, you are WAY too nice to your minions. Perhaps a bit more use of the cheese grater and Friends reruns.
Uhh? No. If someone sucks the last thing I want to do on my list is watch more of them to try and find a reason to like them. Like JayZ said “On To The Next One!” there’s better vids by other people out there that are more entertaining “Choose one!”
LOL yes. Or perhaps take some suggestions from Sage and use the bleach and urine trap.
I’m not homophobic (hell, I watch WHATTHEBUCKSHOW) but this is boring. When is Spoony appearing?
15:56 is the start of the Spoony set up.
…………. Wtf has homophobic to do with this being boring? oO
Honestly, I can’t complain.
It is a nice little review. The only thing that bothered me was the fast paced speech sometimes. Since English is not my native language sometimes I needed to rewind a bit to understand. Other than that, it was a regular gimmicky internet review/crossover.
People ALWAYS complain about videos other than Spoony’s here unfortunately.
I am confused. Is that a woman or something… else?
They say it’s a woman, I say fuck no. He has guy’s face and voice, no way it’s a she. Just no way
That isn’t a particularly nice thing to say!
Diamanda is a bit to weird for my tastes, but to each their own. Not a bad review. I thought Spoony’s YGOTAS shirt was awesome, and Evangelical Spoony was quite hilarious. Tell me Evangelical Spoony, do you hand out Chick Tracks on the weekends?
He’s been a changed man ever since one of his D&D friends tried to kill him with Magic Missile.
love alt spoony sadly he’d probably love that game so the review wouldn’t be that great and he should have had stryper and bibleman posters in the backround lol. I like to think that this universe also has a mean Linkara who curses like a drunken sailor. I’m a fan of the Diamanda so this works for me but soon as you posted it I thought aw poor Hagan shes going to get destroyed, Spoony fans don’t even like him half the time. but HATERS GONNA HATE what can you do about it?
I would watch every episode of both those shows. Twice.
Yeah, I thought the same, too, given how Film Brain was treated for a perfectly wonderful review. And Sage. And Linkara. And and and….
Linara? Really? That guy is one of the best on TGWTG. People like Angry Joe but not Linkara? Don’t get me wrong, I like Joe. But Linkara is a little better.
Not only are the standards of this fanbase high, they are inconsistent too.
Never really watched any of DH reviews before but I like what I see. Great Cameo by Spoony.
And I nearly spit out my drink when Emmanuelle 5 was mentioned. I watched that 2 weeks ago and commented to my friends over and over again how bad that was and how Monique Gabrielle (cute as she may be) can’t act to save her life.
At least part 6 was a little better lol
Couldn’t get past the five minute mark this dude is very boring. How bout some FF X2 spoony?
no sir, I didn’t like it.
To be honest, I was actually waiting for Mr. Horse!
Las cucarachas entran, pero no pueden salir?
That actually translates to “The cockroaches can enter, but the can’t leave”.
This chick is boooooring. Not for me. I liked the crossover with Filmbrain, but not this one. I really would like to see a crossover with Phelous.
Well that was…painful! The spoony bit was funny, nice to see insano again. Not liking Diamada. I just felt awkward throughout the whole “review”, and I know this is horrible to say but I really thought it was a guy until I read the comments on here, so that didn’t help. Still it’s nice to see spoony doing more stuff so I cant complain too much.
I just think you guys are being dickhats. I liked this review.
Yeah, people here are complete asshats, aren’t they? I can’t believe how they don’t hold the same opinion as you!
Holding an opinion and being a stupid prick aren’t the same thing.
Why do so many people on the internet have trouble grasping this simple truth?
lets deconstruct this “simple truth” of yours,
rude comment does not equal opinion,
so context does not matter, only form matters,
therefore “i dont like this” is a opinion, “this sucks” is not according to your logic, but you are WRONG.
What you’re saying is poeple here are being dicks just for the sake of being dicks, yeah right.
even insults, are a form, people use to express their dissatisfaction,
and if you cannot see past that, then it just means you are taking this all too seriously. I am not saying insults are good or bad, I am just saying you are wrong.
“I am not saying insults are good or bad…”
Looks like you have completely missed my point to begin with.
It’s entirely possible to honestly criticize the video without acting like a dick.
Having an opinion and being a dick aren’t the same thing. You can have an opinion WHILE being a dick, but one is additive to the other.
There is a difference between “I hate this person” and “I think this person is “.
By your logic, they are one in the same, and that’s just bullshit.
“It’s entirely possible to honestly criticize the video without acting like a dick.” – thats true, I never said it is not possible, your point then?
I am not really in the mood for disqusion, I commented on this video too much already, so I’ll keep it short:
“There is a difference between “I hate this person” and “I think this person is (ad-hominem)” – the example I used was different, but ok, lets use yours, yes there is a difference in context, but guess what, both statements are opinions, and as such – objectively their value is the same…
“You can have an opinion WHILE being a dick” – yes you get it now, just dont say “”You cant have an opinion WHILE being a dick.”
‘coz that how your statement sounded, and if it is not what you were going fot, then indeed I missed your point.
Let me refraze it for you: “Holding an opinion OR being a stupid prick aren’t the same thing.” – there, now we are all happy.
I agree, but what he did was insult people and then said he disagreed with them, which to me came off as “you guys are idiots, this is great”.
5.25 If your going to have unnamed armies attacking isreal.
Don’t use stock footage of the American miltary. It gives the impression that the US is invading Isreal and you an idiot as a result.
Despite all the whining,moaning and insults being hurled at Ms.Hagan,it’s amazing that only 4 or 5 people actually bothered to comment on THE ACTUAL FILM BEING REVIEWED.
Because the film wasn’t interesting and she wasn’t good/insightful enough to make it interesting. Thats what for me separates a good internet reviewer from a bad one, they can make something boring really funny or something very dull really interesting.
It’s ok if you don’t like this review your american.Any thing with an accent and dry wit is just beyond what you can understand its ok. Just leave the good stuff to the adults stick to Adam Sandler and Larry the cable guy you know things you can understand without straining your brain with thought.
Pretentious piece of crap. Begone.
Glad to see you use your brain power for the important stuff, and don’t strain it by bothering to use apostrophes or punctuation.
I’m English and i hated this review, what does being American have to do with it?
I like Yatzee, a British born resident of Australia. I’m aslo American. Your wrong.
Hey. I’m American. I’m from Texas, thanks. I Love watching Hagan, but I also like watching Linkara, Sage, Film Brain, Critic, Spoony, whathaveyou.
Obvious troll is obvious.
Report, flame, throw shit for spice, move on.
Sorry to say, the review was meh:
- lack of energy in the voice-over parts
- the source material/movie itself is bad but not funny bad
- i don’t get the cult lead schtick ( i watched 2 diamanda hagan reviews previously)
- it needs reviewer perspective, you know like spoony is a dnd and gaming nerd so he has
perspective on Mazes & Monsters, FMV Games etc.
Diamanda Hagan is supposed to be a satanist, where is her satanist perspective on the themes of the movie?
- i didn’t get the conection to the spoony part, the actor doesn’t look like spoony at all
As a previous poster said: a 5min introductory video from spoony saying what he sees
in Diamanta Hagan reviews would’ve defused alot of negative feedback.
Finally to all meta- criticizer:
Free stuff does not mean free from criticism wether constructive or not.
The internet is a public forum. Anyone and anything which publicizes in
a public forum is subject to public critizism – be it content or appearance.
“X is shit” is as valid as “X is great”.
If you say only constructive criticism is allowed aka “X doesnt work for me because Y”
you also should only allow constructive praise “X is great for me because Y”.
OK if you say so: Lol seriously dude? No one gives a shit. Welcome to the internet, what did you expect?
I think I get it! Everyone’s doing “performance art”, as mindless pricks who turn violent against anyone who isn’t their would-be prophet. Great companion piece to the movie, guys.
nobody got “violent” when Spoony did crossover with Sage, or with NC and Linkara,
or when he posted Snob videos… so your belief falls,
i’ve got interesting observation for you, do you know who appears to be a mindless prick now? You!
Yeah it’s not like those posts have the same exact whining and bitching oh wait yeah they kind of do
no, they kind of do not,
not like here, now…
of course sometimes you will find some negativism here and there, that you will not find on, let say, TGWTG forums, and you know why?
(i know you do’nt know why, I read your other post) – because this is a dedicated forum, not a shared one – to elaborate: if you ask anybody here if they watch every single reviewer on a TGWTG (lets just stick with it for the sake of explanation) – you would get no as an answer, and as a consequence number of negative feedback there is lower, “dont like that guy, wont watch him let alone comment on his work.”
Here though it is a different matter “came here with intention to watch new video, (regardless of its content), so – i’ll gonna do it, if I feel like sharing opinion on what I think of it, gonna do it too. Simple as that.”
“came here with intention to watch new video, (regardless of its
content), so – i’ll gonna do it, if I feel like sharing opinion on what I
think of it, gonna do it too. Simple as that.”
That’d be great, if that’s what was getting posted. Instead, we’ve got “omg is she a dude?” “y no new stuff, doesn’t our whiney bile encourage you to get creative?” and other crap.
“i really didnt liked what I saw, so instead of writing down whatever is on my mind right now, I am going to stop, and think about what I am going to type, so nobody gets offended, I am also going to be creative about it.”
the world is not a place where everyone is polite to eachother? SHOCKING, I know – right!
You’re mistaking the world for the internet, which would explain the apparent need to spray and moan about a video you could have stopped at any time and done something else.
no, I dont, but if it is a problem for you, there you go: the internet is not a place where everyone is polite to eachother? SHOCKING, I know – right!
god forbid expressing my dissatisfaction,
smart poeple dont complain!
what are you? – five?
or just naive?
Arguing for a ‘right’ to be rude for the sake of it, rather than offering some actual criticism, and not getting why people would reject that stand-point?
No, I’d say you’re the naive child.
1. I get why people would reject rude statements.
2. I get why people post rude statements.
if your answer is yes,
then we have nothing more to argue about
Upon doing some research, I’ve reached a conclusion: she looks more feminine without the makeup (that sounds backwards).
Or I don’t know if it’s actually a more feminine look. Might be more normal. Or less normal. But there’s a difference.
Holy mother. Shes actually the most attractive of the bunch. At least more than Peter Griffin and female Peter Griffin.
Way too many bad comments, I enjoyed it! Loved the Spoony cameo!
I quite like it , I do think that the black and white thing is unneeded though and I am not a big fan of the face paint etc, but I guess it’s different strokes for different folks.
Just quickly then:
I didn’t enjoy the review at all, I gave it an honest shot but it just didn’t work.
The film was not interesting and the host was neither funny or insightful. I really did not like the “standard” internet reviewer humour and it just ended up reeking of trying too hard.
Not a complete writeoff but a lot to work on.
I liked it, some of her comments were funny and the “supervillain” theme had me laughing once or twice. As for the film not being “interesting”… would you call Skullduggery or Mazes & Monsters interesting?
This movie is basically the direct opposite of those movies, except still not good. What’d you expect, a scathing review of Citizen Kane (didn’t NC do one of those)?
Also, I’m calling it now: Spoony will fight Televangelist-Spoony at the end of FFX-2! You heard it here first!
Nice to see you helping out some of the lesser known reviewers on the site. I know Diamanda has a very different review style, but I enjoy her stuff, and I am always happy to see cameos from you no matter who the reviewer is. It’s really good to have you posting videos again. I’m happy that you might finally be feeling better. Keep up the good work.
THAT’S A GIRL!?
I love Diamanda Hagan’s stuff, but, you know, Spoony fans are notoriously hostile to anyone who isn’t Spoony.
Thats such a cop-out, sure we are all spoony fans but hes not the ONLY internet reviewer i/we watch. Plenty of people have stated reason why they disliked it.
Your attitude is the same as me saying; Sai that one Diamanda Hagan fan made a really generalizing comment about a fanbase, all of diamanda’s fans must be like that.
Only if you misunderstand the word ‘notorious’.
Considering the amount of rampant butt trauma on this site any time anyone so much as cameos in one of Spoony’s videos, never mind when he puts up one that he cameo’d in, I think it’s safe to say Spoony’s core fanbase can be a bit fanatical. And it’s something that only tends to happen here, you don’t see it so much on TGWTG or Blip.
What about Brad, NC, and Angry Joe? They’ve reviewed with Spoony, and no one complains about them. Even the rabid fans like them.
The problem is that these people, Brad, NC, Spoony, are considered to be the best around. Anyone who doesn’t have flawless reviewing skills and showmanship is going to look like shit compared to these giants.
Objectively, Hagan has slightly above average analytical skill, and a weird character that’s difficult to get behind. But Spoony is a master of analysis and character (when you can get a new video out of him) and his skill only magnifies Hagan’s shortcomings.
And yes, Elizabeth, we ARE notoriously hostile to crossover reviewers on TSE. So much so, that Spoony felt the need to remind us to behave ourselves (which we didn’t) on Twitter. Go look for his tweet, it’s there.
Actually, they kinda did complain. Still, you’ve personally stated your opinions reasonably and they seem fair enough, I just wish more people did. This kind of measured response to something you didn’t like is refreshing. I don’t entirely agree on everything but I’m certainly with you on Noah, Brad and Doug being very skilled entertainers.
I just think that people who follow Spoony have really high standards, perhaps unreasonably so. Your right though, there is some reactionary behavior coming from fans. They may have complained about the good crossover reviewers more than I know. You sound like you know what your talking about.
What gets me is how some try to justify this behavior. Some people think that the can insult whoever they like, with as much exaggeration as they please, if they are witty enough. So you find that the people who think they are funniest in the world (the narcissists) saying these completely horrendous things about a somewhat average review.
And he also had Film Brain cameo again to make fun of the notoriously hostile nature of his own fans.
Spoony doesn’t really have a character. He’s just a slightly exaggerated version of himself. Hagan is one of the few people whose skit stuff I actually enjoy, probably because it’s timed well and doesn’t overstay its welcome.
Granted I didn’t know what to think of her review style at first, but after watching a few episodes of her stuff I really enjoyed it. If people can’t get past her reviewer persona go watch something like her Bonekickers reviews first, hilarious shit and voiceover-only.
I actually saw Bonekickers once. It completely does away with the whole clown cult thing (which was my biggest problem) and just puts Hagan in front of a camera. It’s pretty good, but I can’t say I’ve watched every episode.
I don’t know I’m not a fan of spoony’s but have watched his work over the years and it went from awesome to good to so so to where is he now? When Spoony only puts up a couple actual videos in a year on his website usually were left wondering like “????” did he die? Did he quit? Then he’ll post up a Vid or Vlog after 3-4 months- um I mean weeks. So thinking about how little actual review videos he does as it is and then posting up someone elses review vid just because he was in it for like 3seconds is like a huge WTF??? to people that follow this site and are waiting to check out a new review vid. Spoony seems to stagger with the updates as it is but this is the FIRST VID OF THE NEW YEAR and it’s not even his. WTF man?
That’s more a complaint about Spoony’s work ethic than Diamanda’s review style. So what you’re saying is the bitching is mostly misplaced anger, and in that case I agree. It’s still fanatical though.
Just cut it out. What is the point, what is the purpose?
wait, who is this, and what does he have to do with spoony? I mean the review seems good enough, but WHAT?!!
I actually really enjoyed his or her video. I found him or her to be pretty entertaining.
But the part of this that scares me is somebody actually bought Left Behind Eternal Forces. I felt dirty for just getting it for free from a giveaway those nuts were doing. You know they made a fourth one? Its the same game, but with one or two bits of new content.
No seriously Spoony, why do you have that.
It’s not like its hard to get a copy. He just went out into the desert and dug it out of the same pit they threw all those E.T. cartridges.
Next to the pile of Bart Simpson dolls?
I love quick some people is to make hurtful comments but God forbid anyone gets offended by them and tell them they are being hurtful.
They sure don’t mind offending others, I think that’s pretty clear, but they sure are quick to take offense if anyone dares to criticize them for it.
You want to post insults and throw fruits and vegetables, then take the heat of people not liking you behavior and stop whining and crying like a 4 year old.
PD: Not talking about negative comments in general, just those particularly and unecessarely hurtful ones.
It’s great to see Spoony doing stuff again but I’m really not a fan of hagan. truth be told I really dislike her reviews. I’m not complaining about cameos in general because I personally like them. The Alone in the Dark review is one of my favorites of all time. However I just don’t find Hagan to be funny. At all.
Reading these comments are sad. I seriously miss the old days when Spoony posters were mostly people that crossed over to this site from his Youtube channel. Now that the GWTG crowd has migrated here it’s like “holy sh*t how dare you not like a video someone made.”
Because youtube commenters are known and loved for their intelligence, wit, grace and honesty; they’re famous for it.
I’m from the days when he was on Youtube and I can’t stand when people bitch about the cameos he does or the videos he puts up if they’re good quality, well done videos. Like Hagan’s there. Or Film Brain. Or Linkara. Or Sage. Need I go on?
I was not aware there is such a thing as “the president of the European Union”. What is it with these pieces of rapture fiction highly exaggerating the power of multinational political organizations and turning them evil? In Left Behind it was the United Nations, here it’s the EU.
One thing I do like over Left Behind (based on reviews) is how this movie points out the damages that would incur from the rapture, such as when the drivers of speeding vehicles disappeared. Left Behind seemed to ignore that completely.
According to Revelations, Satan is supposed to come to earth under a guise of peace, using the anti-christ and a false prophet to make himself a messianic figure and united the world under his rule, leading to the ‘mark of the beast’ placed on all who pledge themselves to him, leading to their eventual damnation.
The Left Behind guys interpret that as an international aetheist conspiracy, and where better to start with that than the godless heathens in the UN? Or the European Union. Neither insists on placing Christianity or any religion at its forfront like, say, the United States.
Interesting how many posts there are about negative comments instead of actual posts commenting on the video.
<3 Spoony's cameo.
DH’s style of reviewing reminds me of Welshy’s.
You own the Left Behind game? Careful with that. It installs a lot of nasty spyware when you do.
wat. Wait, What? It Does? o.O
Dammit, now I have another series to watch.
Great cameo, Spoony.
I think a character who looks like they just came off the set of Repo! The Genetic Opera is more than qualified to take down vapid, insipid self-glorifying white-right Christian delusionism. Considering most of them would be among Geneco’s best customers I think it’s only fitting.
I giggled at the Repo! reference. I’m glad I’m not the only person that adores that movie.
Hagan is much less over-the-top and irritating in this than she was in the other review of hers I’ve seen (and I can’t be bothered to recall which one that was).
I’m ok with this. especially because there’s Spoony love (from up above)
I love the little Jesus sound clip!
I’m not fan of Diamanda Hagan, but that was a great way to make me watch a video of hers. The Spoony One’s cameo was cleverly-done and funny. :-)
Film Brain was betterrrrrrrrrr
Well thats just like your opinionnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
Only Film Brain can save TSE from being taken over by demonic creatures. Film Brainnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
Bring back Film Brain!
Bring Back Film Brainnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
His no make-up, over-sized head no-nonsense style…Oh how I miss thee on TSE. We need more Film Brainnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn
It’s illegal to be Christian in this movie?
What about everyone else? Were all the Atheists, Jews, Hindus, and Muslims raptured? Were the ONLY people left behind Christian? Doesn’t that mean that THIS movie is saying being Christian is wrong? That would explain why after all the conversions NONE OF THEM were taken to heaven.
From what I can figure, in the movie the “true” Christians were raptured, leaving behind the halfhearted Christians (including the main characters) who were then persecuted by all the non-Christians (who are all one homogeneous group who immediately join together, turn evil, and hate the remaining Christians because, uh… Satan).
Don’t you love how EVERY other religion in these Tribulation/End Times-sploitation (that a word yet? It should be) films instantly allies under one Eurotrash asshole, to the point where they not only forget all their ancient rivalries and shot trading, but also consider Christians worthy of complete and utter extermination?
Who is this shrieking person and why are they dressed like Crow’s retarded brother/sister? :
I don’t watch Diamanda a lot but I did run into one of her reviews a while back (before she joined TGWTG) when her and a bunch of people were doing the Land Before Time Films and thought it was pretty good. I enjoyed this too. I think she’s funny. I may watch more from her.
And that cameo was glorious.
Anyone else liked the review, but just had to have another tab open because he couldnt stand that make-up? Sorry it just made me feel uncomfortable :-/
Now the only thing I can think of, Would there be an alternate version of Dr. Insano and what sort of derangement would he have. Oh and this was a fun review not much of a Hagan fan but this is a good review less over the top and cameo was well placed and not dragged out.
I honestly don’t get to the point that i don’t like a vid that spoony recommenNds but this is that rare occasion.
I’m sorry but making jokes about the font? How is that funny?
I liked the film brain cross over but i could understand why people didn’t like her.
To be fair, i didn’t see the whole vid but that was due to complete boredom before i could get to the 5 min mark.
Maybe it’ll get better as it went along.
I’ll have to give a better critique later.
This is really horrible. Still not sure if its male or female….so boring tho. Its like a not funny version of Wilkensons Family Restaurant. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pj6qv1iZJWo.
Lose this one and start making your videos again please…you are missed Noah!
Kinda ironic that the reviewer i rever the most has fans i like the least (mind not all. but just alot of anti doug walker fans that get butthurt over cameos and trivial s***)
Diamanda Hagan. I don’t always watch her. But when i do. I like what i hear
It seems that people are finally giving this review an honest go. They still don’t like it. At least they’re being fair this time, instead of pointlessly throwing around insults as they describe their dislike.
I don’t care if your a good with a gun, you can’t shoot a person for not
donating to charity. I also don’t care how witty you are, you can’t
verbally decimate someone because they made a video you didn’t like.
Save your anger for the REAL pieces of shit, who do deserve to be
Like the people who made the movie being reviewed?
Yes, exactly. That movie is far more painful than Hagan can even TRY to be.
Poor delivery, but wonderful content. This one has potential with some polish.
Thats not a girl. Diamanda is the dude to the left: http://d3j5vwomefv46c.cloudfront.net/photos/large/474877877.png?Expires=1325797489&Key-Pair-Id=APKAIYVGSUJFNRFZBBTA&Signature=vUWtpMNfPGhTbxCSa0niUCm6wpwVq~yUxSdUTtQx1xzIAW0uu~EQI5OA0JdT5405sMrpKkcN1i~fnyze5F18D4RMjiJuRLNXeQYf0-vMnNVyFvVsWTteY39GDTIfr3E5NqpzaCNom1w161~~eu–5~GdfE2bXgYeTZOytaFeMVg_
I can very much assure you that Hagan is a woman!
She’s a buddy to a lot of small time reviewers who hasn’t made it big yet, a very giving and open person. And most definitely a woman.
Just look at the picture! How is that a woman?
what short bus dropped you off here?
Really? I am pretty sure that she is a statement judging from the link.
Oh Diamanda, trying to make sense out of Christian fundamentalist movies again are you? XD Always hilarious.
I have to say, I feel for mistress Hagan.
There’s so much negativity surrounding her, not only here, but so many places where people talk about her.. safe the “Your video reviews.” section of the TGWTG forum, there we all love her and call her mistress.. I think it’s her way to turn all of us into minions before we get to big..
Kidding, she’s a very giving nice person who helps a lot of people, is a very talented video producers herself. I admit, I didn’t “Get.” her humour at first, neither did I get the humour of “Red letter media” or “Batman the brave and the bold” at first, but with all three I had an “Aha” moment and then loved. though again, I will be the first one to admit none of these things are for everyone.
There’s afford, smarts and quality over Hagans reviews. but they are just not for every-one, unfortunately. I am so sad for all the hardships she has to suffer. she doesn’t deserve it!
Funny enough, the most common comments seems to be that she scares people! haha, I like that XD
Oh and well, I think all the critisism in these comment section simply comes from the critical culture of internet reviewers.. It is merely what we are being taught by the videos we watch! to criticise!
Unfortunately not all knows when just to keep ugly things to themselves :/
Girls, you need to learn something: If you use stuff like “great personality” or “she is really nice” to describe a fellow girl it means one and only one thing for us males:
She is ugly as hell.
I’ve gotta be missing ur point here… are you saying you watch Spoony because you’re attracted to him then? or because he has good reviews?
sounding more like the first one.
I cant watch Diamanda either. No matter how good her review may be, her “mask” is just too uncomfortable for me to look at :D
….can’t it be both?
WHAT? I’m secure with myself enough to say this! I got a thing for people who own Lao Che shirts! Stop judging me!
And you are a reminder for us girl why we should pick our guys very carefully, boy.
Well Im sure Diamanda has a handsome, masculine man for a boyfrie….Oh wait no she got Peter Griffin.
When you see any photo of a random group of people do you always assume at least two of them are dating?
Thats omegageek. Her boyfriend.
Is this supposed to be funny? It is absolutely inappropriate.
I’m honestly interested in what your problem is. Care to elaborate?
Diamanda has a handsome, feminine woman for a fiancée. The bearded guy on the photo is her brother who plays the minion Teddy.
Guys, you need to learn something: When you judge female reviewers solely by their looks you give everyone whose reading your comment douche chills.
Well fuck you to.
What a load of sexiest bullshit!
And well, news flash. I am a video producer to! I am not a big shot like Spoony. But being associated with the Agony booth and a couple of other minor sites I am not totally unknown, I have a couple of thousand viewers.
Unlike Hagan I get quite a lot of comments about how pretty people think I am. AND I HATE THAT!
That just tells me that people are more interested in drooling over my looks than listening to my content or laugh of my jokes, and that is freaking sad!
I don’t want to get through on my looks! And I personally would love to be described rather as “Really nice with great personality.” than “Pretty.” I don’t want to get through on being. “But she’s really pretty.” NO I DON’T! so fuck off.
And well, Diamanda Hagan was picked up by the TGWTG site for a reason!
You don’t like her, fine! As I said, her videos are not for every-one, and it took a few re-visits for me to get the “Aha.” moments, so did it with red letter media.
But lay off attacking our warm giving community on the TGWTG forum!
unlike so many other forums that one is not hostile, have ton of warm people helping and advising each other. I hate so much help to my videos from there.
And Hagan stood out as a very helpful person. funny, warm, giving, humble, appreciating, loving to do videos. Never ones did she complain about the bad air surrounding her, which tells lots of about what a cool Irish she is.
Thank You, I’m really not understanding all the TGWTG bashing I see here. I do videogame reviews and I’ve posted my videos on TGWTG to see and have met cool people in the process. I haven’t had a bad experience in the forums, everyone I’ve talked to is really nice.
I like that reviewers found a central place to share their opinions, most people are.. I check the site daily , for new free entertainment.
Fact is, some people are just assholes, like the guy you responded to above. There are viewers like you and myself who can appreciate the effort put into it, others like to bite the hand that feeds.
Yeah, if you step in with an open heart, a sincere wish just to do the videos, a wanting to be a part of things. You will be met with the exact same things from ever-body else.
It is a little community we have going, it really is.
And as we are all contributors and creators, have been through the rough pad of being a beginner, there’s just an common understanding and all around helpfulness, I have been on a lot of forums through the years, but as long as you stay on the “Your video reviews.” section of the TGWTG, it’s by far the nicest, least hostile, least self important forum I haver ever been at with the most creative people who actually put work into their stuff. And no, most of them aren’t going to make it to the main site, so that isn’t even the reason we do it.
And well, as most people on that forum make the video reviews, they actually individually have a great identity on the forum which is cool.
Sadly you don’t need to go that far to reach the annoying stuff, just skip down to every-day life in the section below and things does start to become icky. I’ll just stick to the “Your video reviews.” section and enjoy greatly the warm comradely that we are having. Nerds and video makers with some-thing to say between.
Some-how I can’t help but think a lot of people here are just being jealous.
How many here do you think actually secretly wishes to be a video producer big enough to ask Spoony for a cameo?
“Yes, she’s ugly, but personality matters more. Coincidentally, my looks are my livelihood – against my will.”
Because appearances are all that matter.
Now I remember why I stay far away from the GWTG website. It’s so I don’t get brainwashed and sound like this lunatic. GWTG… what a joke… the review site were everyone hails every single video and cast the reviewer on their shoulders as if they should win a golden glob (yes I said glob) for their mediocre work that wouldn’t even reach 2 views on youtube. Spoony was so much better before he teamed up with them and all they did was suck his funny dry and spin him into and endless spiral of cameo’s and mediocre sh*t like this video (very appropriately titled btw).
Spoony has a lot of talent but they sucked it dry why? because their reviewers suck and can barely hold your attention without pulling in someone else to give you a reason to watch them. Right now I think (and this is my personal opinion… well maybe not) Brad/The Cinema Snob is probably the most well developed reviewer on there. He knows his sh*t and he knows about making a good video from little to nothing. It’s almost a joy to watch the others try to spoof him and it backfires because it’s the only time their Video is good. When they imitate someone that has real talent. I’m glad he secludes himself to his website mostly and keeps away from the GWTG’s sh*t even though he’s on there.
I hope Spoony takes a break and gets his funny back. EVERYONE needs a break to work on new material to come back stronger and better. It’s understandable his video’s aren’t as good as they were 2 years ago but sh*t happens. The guy just needs a break instead of getting pulled into the GWTG sh*t eveytime they try use someone from their top tier roster to bring in more viewers to one of their sh*tty reviewers, and by top tier I mean someone that had a REAL fanbase off their work before TGWTG loop hole of bullsh*t. Now there’s been people that sucked “Angry Joe” that got better over time and it shows but you got to earn those stripes by taking criticism not avoiding it. The old Spoony built up his base off Youtube where we gave him sh*t but he was funny so we subscribed.
Just Sayin… all that GWTG “Oh we love you even though” Bullsh*t isn’t necessary. If it’s good it’s good if it sucks it sucks a video will speak for itself. Diamanda whomever doesn’t need you GWTG Cult members white knighting her video. Trying to protect her from perhaps getting better.
I don’t think Hagans vidoes are bullshit!
I just think she has a really strong character she understands how to play.
I like to describe her as the jokers demented cousin with demon powers, and well. You have to admit that’s cool.
If I thought her videos were bullshit I wouldn’t praise them! even though I like her as a person.
I have a bit to much performers pride to praise a performance I don’t think is good. I genuinely do think her is.
And what’s wrong having fun with her character and play along now that she is so keen to actually still be a part of the forum community?
We are just having a laugh on her characters expense.
“I like to describe her as the jokers demented cousin with demon powers, and well. You have to admit that’s cool.”
What? They are even both Irish!
Some-how it just fits.
not to mention… Diamanda Hagan would so kick Melvin the jokers brothers ass within a second…
when did Diamanda Hagan avoid ANYTHING? people are sticking up for her review because its being judged for the wrong reasons. If you dislike the video thats fine, but your reason for disliking it shouldn’t be “not enough spoony”.
and saying most tgwtg videos wouldn’t get views on youtube…? whhaatt??? they fucking started on youtube! I just fucking facepalmed reading that shit. Then praising old Spoony, because he got you to subscribe on youtube? what the fuck are you talking about guy?
I thought fanboys were bad, but you’re part of this group who thinks “oh so and so is awesome oh wait? they joined a group? THEY SUCK NOW!! WAAAHHHH.” Jesus christ.. shut up no one “sucked Spoony dry of his funnyness” you’re acting retarded.
“Oh and well, I think all the critisism in these comment section simply
comes from the critical culture of internet reviewers.. It is merely
what we are being taught by the videos we watch! to criticise!”
I agree there, but I think it’s only half the story.
The other half being: When Spoony and others act like raging douchebags in their videos, they’re in character acting for our entertainment. (and/or catharsis)
But when people post comments online, they aren’t in any sort of character.
Many of them are genuinely being that hateful and spiteful; why should they act in any sort of character? Anonymity protects them from most practical retaliation.
That is one of the smartest things I’ve ever heard about trolling! Thanks.
Maybe the raging commentors ARE in some sort of character. Think about it: why do we seem to meet more petulant assholes online than in the real world?
Maybe the same people who act like jackasses online are just venting so they don’t have to do it in the real world. Or maybe I’m just sheltered, and haven’t met the real scum of the Earth yet. I don’t know which.
I suspect that they’re just being assholes because they don’t have any real motive to behave. For such people, pissing others off is entertaining and/or cathartic.
One can say all sorts of unruly shit on the internet that would get them arrested, beaten or worse in real life, and at worst get a slap on the wrist.
What punishment exists? They get banned? Oh noes! They will have to make another free account!
I’ve met some truly despicable, awful people in public (and some rare, very good-natured people too). Though most people I meet are apathetic and wary (could just be where I live. I dunno either man.).
Lacking any other rational evidence, I treat people on the internet as such:
1) I don’t care about you at all unless you give me a reason to.
2) If you’re an asshole to others, you’re an asshole until proven otherwise. I can possibly understand why given the context I have, but I’m not going to respect you for it.
3) Without evidence or reasoning, your opinion (if conflicting; if concurrent, it’s redundant) is worthless. Further, I won’t accept the popular consensus just because it’s popular.
That sound right. Most of the social barriers that normally punish bad behavior are remove on the Internet. There’s no such thing as ‘public indecency’ online.
wow… A lot of haters be hating.
I’m gonna say this first, I’m a spoony fan, one of the best reviewers on the internet.
I also like most the reviewers on thatguywiththeglasses, with that said, I am also a fan of the Mistress here. There is a lot of Flak for this review here and it is misdirected. Many of you seem more pissed off that this wasn’t a spoony review than the fact it was a Hagan review. While I admit this isn’t my favourite of Hagans reviews, tell me the name of ANY reviewer who releases a sure fire hit every time.
Now watch the bonekickers reviews or the Children of the living dead review and tell me she’s not a good reviewer. This whole situation seems unfair and heres why.
was this review bad? No fucking way, is Diamanda Hagan a bad reviewer? Fuck no , are many of you pissed that it wasn’t spoony this review? YES Is Hagan’s review style an acquired flavor compared to some other reviewers, you’re damned right it is and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
so if you’re going to be mad, Spoony is the one who posted this review here. Spoony is the one who didn’t post a review, and Hagan gave us one… and your’e mad at Hagan?… Backwards thinking much.
and now that I have all you haters angry in a more accurate direction, remember that Spoony has real life shit going on and that you’re being a dick.
Worse than Hitler!
Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait… wait… wait… wait. That’s a girl?
Good review and everything, but… Hagan’s a girl? The whole time watching this Eddie Izzard’s Action Transvestite bit was playing in the back of my head.
This is the first I ever heard of Diamanda hagan, and I’ve got to say I found her pretty fucking funny. I’m definitely gonna watch more of her reviews! And the Spoony cameo was pretty cool too :)
this is the first time i hear of her either…and i can see why, to quote Sheograth, dull, grey, bland and BORING BORING BOOOOOORING!!
Ahhhh, I’ve only read some of the first 40 comments and my disdain for some of Spoony’s fans is topped up once again. What a bunch of immature cunts some of you are…
Alpha268, I dub thee a hermaphrodite because you are both a dick and a cunt…with a little asshole thrown in. My cat leaves more personality than you’ve shown in your “desperate to sound edgy” posts in her litter tray.
Testy Testman, yes you are worse than Hitler….mostly because he had one more ball than you. Calling her girlfriend her boyfriend? Ha ha HAH, you astound me with your lack of wit, humour or brains.
Richard Servello, you’re not sure if she’s a man or a woman? I’m not sure that your umbilical cord wasn’t wrapped round your throat a little too long when you were born…well, that or your mother raised her most intelligent turd as her son. Either way, you’re a bit of a fucking idiot.
To the other morons whining because it’s not a Spoony video…grow up. He made a cameo in this and wanted to post it on his site as filler while he’s getting over some serious shit and getting into his groove again. What’s wrong with you people? To the people legitimately giving constructive criticism to Hagan, I apologise, I don’t mean to group you in with the knuckle-draggers and the knuckle-heads.
To morons like the 3 listed above, go fuck yourselves….try to engage your brains and come up with ACTUAL reasons not to like her review. Then again that would entail removing your heads from your asses, so I shan’t hold my breath.
doesn’t change the fact that she looks like a guy. sorry bra
You called someone brah, and not ironically either, your “opinion” is completely invalid. Unless you’re Dog the Bounty Hunter, but as he’s a first class douchebag as well the point still stands.
psssssttt…. dennett shhhh don’t give attention to the trolls, it gets them all riled up.
you’re right though.. saying Bra makes you look like that extreme asshole kid from Airborne.
I call people “brah” all the time.
Don’t go there, motherfucker.
dude… pick your battles man.. you’re defending the word “brah” come on man… come on..
Sorry, I’m not exactly going to let my good friend Brah get thrown under the bus like that.
Oh God, you said “don’t go there” now…did you shake you’re head from side to side and say mmmm-hmm after it?
This isn’t the ’90s.
Oh God! SkyRealms is the 90′s Chick!
“DUUUUUUUUUUDE, the Punisher comics are AWESOOOOOME!!! GNARLY MAAAAAAN!!!”
It’s sad when I find myself pining for the 90′s. We fallen pretty damn far haven’t we?
Wow, you’re just as bad as Maffew when he said Spoony was “acting black” when he used the two words “talking trash.”
That takes doing.
Oh, it’s ooon now!
Spoken unironically too. Remarkable.
It’s bro with an accent. I fail to see the inherent problem.
Apparently you do, yes.
Well gosh, that set me straight. ‘Reckon I should just banish myself to a distant planet -right now-.
“I’ve only read some of the first 40 comments”
and this pretty much what sums up the type of people that watch these type of videos and think they are actually Good”.
40 comments? Strong life to no life ratio but then again what do you expect from people that feel the need to tell other people what they should like? This video was sh*t.
You want a reason? Go take a dump, stick your head in the toilet bowl and inhale till you think it smells fresh as roses. That’s what you people like yourself are… sh*t sniffers.
You sniff sh*t because you think it smells good and tell people it smells good. While others just see you sniffing sh*t and wonder if you’ve lost your damn mind.
Do people need a reason to explain why this video is sh*t? or can you actually not see why this video is sh*t?
Because trust us…. it IS sh*t my lifeless friend.
Believe it or not yes, some reasons as to why the video is shit would be great. The fact that so many are incapable of doing this speaks volumes about their intelligence. I’m not the smartest in the world, but I’m leagues ahead of these dipshits, and that both pleases and depresses me.
I like a dry sense of humour and delivery, I like her timing and find her observations funny…it also helps that the material she’s looking it is so cringe-worthy.
There, see, not so hard was it? I didn’t tell anyone they should like anything, try reading my comment again oh clueless one, I was ragging on morons who were talking about looks and calling lesbian ladies dudes. And I read 40 short comments, how does that make me lifeless? It took less than five minutes…then again, I don’t have to sound every other word out to myself phonetically in order to understand sentences. Perhaps you do?
Perhaps you have your head so far up your own ass that you see shit everywhere, even where there is none? Then again, I’m just guessing because you can’t seem to articulate your thoughts beyond “it’s shit, and since you don’t agree you must be a loser”. You have some growing up to do little one.
nobody needs to give, you or anyone else, reasons why they didnt like this video, you bitch about thier form of expression, and yet you do the same. You’re not better then anyone else in here – you arrogant full of shit hypocrite.
It may not be a “need” to give constructive criticism over just being a douchebag, but the point Dennett316 was making is that it is much more respectful. Dennett was defending someone they felt was being mistreated. You are defending those who are just saying things to be hurtful.
so fuck you guy. I’m not arrogant, I’m just better than you.
What is the difference between ‘want’ and ‘need’? Example: Maybe I don’t NEED to live, but I really WANT it.
I don’t know if every desire is either a want or a need, but where is the line between those two? I’m not being nasty, I’m just having some philosophical fun.
The difference is thus: I need, others want.
it wasn’t a need, it definitely is a “want” from the reviewers who put out videos to get back constructive criticism. It’s more a matter of all around respect. It’s the very reason we watch these reviewers, they respect the material that they are reviewing, if they didn’t, it’d be a bunch of people infront of the camera just saying “this sucks” over and over again. And the last thing we need is a bajillion Chris Bores’s running around.
So…only ‘wants’ exist?
I would argue that since human chemistry, like any chemistry, follows a discrete series of reactions bound by physics, that only ‘needs’ exists.
Therefore, humans ‘need’ something the same sense that a rock thrown into the air ‘needs’ to fall down to Earth.
Again, this has nothing to do with the review, or the commentors ejaculating their hate everywhere without reason. This is for fun.
uhh what? I was saying that reviewers want constructive criticism, not need it. Not that needs themselves do not exist..
But if you want to say that only needs exist, I definitely disagree.
I want a new Xbox 360 game… I don’t need one.
You don’t need food either. You just really want it. Probably more than the XBox game.
I’m just saying that the words ‘want’ and ‘need’ are logically interchangeable, both used to describe a desire for something.
I have no problem with people being rude, regardless of the side of this argument, blame my tolerance for such behaviour on more harsh but also more direct culture I was raised in, or whatever…
tolerance for hypocricy at the other hand, i’ve got little to none.
demanding politness and being rude to others about it, at the same time – is hypocricy.
not being able to see a problem with this situation, is idiocy,
not wanting to see a problem with this situation, I call
being full of shit.
feeling better about itself for no real reason is being called arrogance.
“Dennett was defending someone HE/SHE felt was being mistreated. You are defending those who are just saying things to be hurtful.”
“so fuck you guy. I’m not arrogant, I’m just better than you. ”
fair enough, whatever…
btw, sorry for not answering for a longer time, being busy.
What are you dribbling about? How am I arrogant, I admitted I wasn’t the smartest? How am I a hypocrite? I’m asking for constructive criticism about the content of a video, not idiotic bashing of a person’s looks. If you turn up and merely say something is shit, you’re opinion holds no weight and is completely dismissed…worse you come off looking like an idiot or a troll.
Oh, and I’m certainly better than the 3 shitheads I mentioned in my original posts…I wouldn’t be so classless as to insult a persons looks or sexual orientation. But I will call someone an ignorant asshole all day long. Welcome to that club.
You want thoughtful, constructive criticism? Here it is.
Despite Hagan’s strong analytic skills, the style and tone of the video are questionable. I don’t understand how a secret clown cult is supposed to be funny. The majority of the humor derived from this setup is either forced, bland, or disturbing, and the whole thing feels like distraction from the review itself.
In summary, this feels like a normal review intermixed with the footage of a HAMAS kidnapping video. Why would you ever want to mix both of those things together for comedy?
Yes, that is the third time I’ve said that, but it’s still an accurate description. And yes, I am the idiot from the ‘WWE in 5 seconds video’. Hopefully I’m not as stupid here as I was there.
Ah, gallows humor. How I’ve missed thee.
It’s so he can post other cameos and people can’t be as harsh by comparison
Translation: What she means by “You’re Welcome” is “You are Whale Cum!”
I was forced to watch Left Behind back when I was in Middle School as a kid and now I hate and cant stand to even see Rapture movies on a self! The only way I’ll watch something even close to it if it was a Ragnarok or Cthulhu movie! Because at least then it’s have monsters and everyone’s fucked!
Diamanda Hagan interest me, but Christian Spoony scares me!
Does anyone else think of the Zandig JESUS! that Botchamania uses when it goes to day transitions?
The cover looks like the two main characters are strongly considering the Lunch Special at their local Arby’s
WTF is this? I became a Spoony-Fan because of his Lets Plays, his game reviews, HIS humor! I am so sick and tired of the monstrosity called “That Guy With the Glasses” that brings endless crossovers, guest-appearences, and unfunny “movie-projects”.
I want the old times back, I want something like the “Phantasmagoria”, something like the “SWAT” playtroughs. Why the fuck do I have to watch some Dr. Frank N. Furter impersonator do a mediocre review??
The only guy who didnt become shittier is Brad Jones, because HE stays mostly away from any TGWTG-stuff!
Oh the “Frank N Furter Impersonater” is apparently a woman FUCKING GREAT
Yes, how dare Spoony cooperate with other reviewers while he tries to recover from his present, precarious state of health? How uncouth! *end sarcasm*
So many hurtful comment on Diamanda’s appearance…it makes my eyes rain 8′(
There arent any hurtful comments undes his Phantasmagoria playtrough.
Why would anyone make hurtful commentaries on Spoony’s appearance during the Phantasmagoria playthrough?
HOLY SHHHHIT! ”THIS” , is a female? WTF!? I swear i was certain it was a male!!!!! ”Her” review also sucked…
*double post for some reason*
So since you said this was an alternate universe does that mean Burton is still technically missing from the main story line? Will this new clone disappear just like when the Gate Cleaner took away one wiener? Just how many characters are there now that are played by you Noah and just how many of them are repeat or alternate versions of main line ones?
Don’t take the flamers too seriously. Even this cameo is really fun. But I do have one thing I have to agree with. It would be nice to see some more game reviews again. I don’t know what other games you played as a kid but the stories were good even if the production values were sub par.
This might interest people: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=231837553547972&set=a.142692172462511.34497.105281619536900&type=3
I’ve been on the fence oddly about Diamanda, but the Spoony cameo has clinched it. She’s in the win column as far as I am concerned. By the way, Spoony, now you have to do a review on that game too.
Nice cameo Spoony, and I thought the review in itself was nice to watch too. This Diamanda Hagan sure has a unique style.
A couple of friends decided to watch this exact movie tonight. I suspect it’s because of this review. Small world, this internet-thing, really…
…wait,thats a chick?….right, well as well as being of no gender, he/she/it was also not funny, and not really a “review”, just a diffnotes of a bad movie
is it a little sad that i have that game? Even though I’m christian… this just made me laugh. wow that movie was bad.
Did a Christian just like your comment? Two people not getting the joke… interesting… no wonder these people stay religious.
Now, I KNOW I’m a leftist Rotarian, and I’n NOT bigoted against grass-roots Neoconservatives. But I just didn’t like this review.
Is it an accident you replied to my, maybe too snarky comment about religion? Please elaborate.
I’m not angry. It was a joke, parodying the people who leave posts like “Even though I’m christian… this just made me laugh. wow that movie was bad” or “I’m no homophobe, but I just didn’t like it.”
Why even mention these things when giving a post? I kind of understand nick. But a few posters say it for no reason.
I’ve grown to fricken LOVE when Spoony posts other people’s vids here.
The sheer outcry of fans whose world starts collapsing every time they’re reminded there’s other reviewers out there is hysterical to watch. The angst tastes like candy. :3
Also, I’m glad it’s Diamanda Hagan this time. She’s unique. She’s funny. She goes where few reviewers dare to go. And she deserves more exposure. Although, as said, the crowd in here is not the most welcoming one I’ve ever seen. But if nothing else, the attempt was well worth the mindrape it seems to have spawned.
*takes a shot*
So, seems like I have too much time at my hands at the moment. But since this comment section is keeping me interested since two days now, I went through the whole thing again and collected some data. Some people here said that Spoony’s fans are notorious for insulting and
“bitchy” comments. And simply: I wanted to know if this was the truth, so I made a statistic. I know this is completely silly and pretty pointless, but to my mind very interesting at the same time.
The procedure was as follows: I looked at what every person here said and classified the character of their comments. The catergories are:
a) People who found the review good (including the ones who loved it).
b) People who found the review okay.
c) People who didn’t like it or weren’t totally convinced, but expressed valuable criticism without being insulting (e.g. “I didn’t like it because it was too long”, “I didn’t like it because it was scary”, “I didn’t like it because the pacing wasn’t good”, “I didn’t like it because it was boring”.).
d) People who reviewed the video in an insulting way (my indicators were swearwords and insulting use of sarcasm).
e) People who bashed people who reviewed the video in an insulting way (e.g. “You’re an asshole because you said…”, “You’re a dick because you said…).
f) People who’s comments got flagged.
Just a few people fall in more than one category. I did my best not to count the comments, but the people. Since I wasn’t sure with some of the people, I didn’t count them.
The results are:
a) 27 people liked the video.
b) 39 people found it okay.
c) 25 people expressed valuable criticism.
d) 28 people reviewed the video in an insulting way.
e) 13 people bashed people of the category d.
f) 3 people’s comments got flagged.
I would say that the results are not absolutely clear, but to my mind 41 people (categories d and e) who insult the video and each other in incredible ways are too much.
There should be more statistics about the behavior of internet users in comment sections. Some things just need to be said in a neutral and matter-of-fact way. And then everybody should draw the consequences.
Or just laugh desperately…
Looool the comments were she is insulted, called a man, called worse than hitler are still there.
But my comment where I say I want Phantasmagorie-revies back has been flagged for review????
It’d be cool if there was a like/dislike bar for these guest reviews or something like that, I mean theres plenty of reviewers i’d love to see on here, Phelous, Obscuras Lupa, Brad Jones etc, for me though, this guest reviewer just isnt my cup of tea, very obscure subject material, odd “gimmick” etc etc, but the thing is, many people might like this review and would want to see more, so an easy way to see if the response is more positive or negative would be a good idea rather than have to read 500 comments.
I do kind of agree.. but at the same time I think spoony should be able to cameo and post whatever he wants to. The problem with a thumbs down system is it gets abused and alot of the time doesn’t always accurately show whats going on.
For example, One of my videos on youtube got trolled by one individual who made many accounts, giving me many dislikes on the video on my main channel page.
so all of a sudden many thumbs down become a relfection of just one persons dislike. Where as more effort has to go into writing a comment, and when the comments are well written and make a point (as yours was) someone actually cares what your saying, in contrast to the people who just post something like “this sucks”
WTF is this, I came here to enjoy Spoonys videos, not to watch some dude impersonate Dr Frank and Further.
“That Guy with the Glasses” is really becoming a pest, it seems nowadays you only get crossovers, cameos and boring “video projects”.
I did become a fan of Spoony because of his great Lets Plays, because of Phantasmagoria, SWAT and Final Fantasy, I want HIS videos and HIS humor -_-
Spoony’s recent lack of videos has nothing to do with Thatguywiththeglasses.com
This isn’t Thatguywiththeglasses.com
If you want to bitch about it, go there.
if you want to watch spoony’s reviews of the past, go watch them.
You liked specific reviews because you related to them, they were nostalgic for you.. Spoony makes videos for things that are nostalgic for him.. This was a Hagan review, FEATURING spoony and is on something you clearly aren’t into.
but insulting the reviewer when they actually made a review for people to watch?
Posted here BY SPOONY
you don’t even know what you’re mad about do you? If you want a video about final fantasy GO MAKE ONE if you think you can do any better.
Here’s a hint: Go elsewhere. You know there are other websites than this one and TGWTG, right?
I suppose every reviewer on the ‘net is supposed to tailor make their videos for you, now?
You know, after programming for around 36 hours straight, this isn’t half bad. Defiantly not what I expected, but hey, free entertainment.
So do a vast majority of people just have a low tolerance for weird stuff? Is that where all the hate for mime-chick is coming from? I don’t get it. So she puts on lots of makeup and uses a black and white filter. The review was of average quality, so….Is that really it? Seriously?
By the way, I hope Spoony knows he has to review that game now. The turtleneck made me try and laugh, but then I yawned instead. Evangelist Spoony is amusing.
Back to work/sleep.
This type of backlash is par for the course, really. It always happens when this site features a video/cross-over of/with someone not featured here previously.
I wonder what fanbase is more rabid? Metalica’s when they find Metalica doing something non Metalica. or Spoony in a cross over See Teken crossover.
Man, it’s reasons like this that I go here and not to tgwtg. Besides Doug, they’re all just like the annoying people I see at college.
Yes it’s expected of people to be upset cause it’s not a spoony video. Though i’m sure this post wouldn’t have been a big deal at all, if it were good. If it was something good and entertaining, there wouldn’t be so much bitching and banter.
“OMG, Spoony posted something on his website that features him where he isn’t the main star! How dare he! It’s not like I can just NOT CLICK THE LINK and go about my day! I’m going to continue complaining about getting FREE ENTERTAINMENT promoted by Spoony that happened to be made by other people, because I’m an entitled twat with no sense of proportion and priorities!”
Seriously. Shut the hell up and just enjoy the damn video. If you have decided you won’t enjoy it because it isn’t Spoony, don’t watch. Complaining about it just makes you look like a damn child, and your god-king of comedy Spoony does NOT want to deal with you ingrates. He does not appreciate your complaining, and he does not appreciate you. Just LEAVE.
Yeah, whatever damage this video inflicted on those poor, innocent little babies was pretty damn trivial. But this video technically isn’t free. Every time we click on this video, Hagan gets hits through her Blip account. I suppose you could leave the video early, but she does still profit through advertisement.
I think this is the thirteenth time I’ve heard that opinion. I’m still going baby.
It is nevertheless free. The definition of “free” is that it costs nothing, not that no-one profits from it. You do not have to pay to watch, therefore it is free. What happens as a result of that in no way affects the conditions under which the video becomes available to you, so advertisments have no impact on whether or not the product is free.
I clicked on the Wiki links you provided. I think they are broken, but I get what you mean.
Advertisement is still personally inconvenient, and I do feel like I am being cheated in a non-monetary way. But you right, it is ‘free’.Again, sorry for acting like a twat. That’s not what I was trying to do.
Is it me, or does the guy she compares to Spoony looks nothing like Spoony? What a waste of a cameo.
To me he does. Weirdly so, I might add. But mainly in profile. His profile, especially his nose, looks a Lot like Spoony.
He looks like Spoony with the eyes, eyebrows and nose. Similar to how Andy from Weeds (forget the actors name) has a resemblance too. Mostly the eyebrows that do it.
So yeah, I see the resemblance. Enough to warrant a cameo by the Spoony One to joke about it.
I just saw Hagan’s review of ‘The Taint’. It was shot in a hotel room, probably because they are preparing for Magfest.
Good thing too, because without their studio to recreate the spooky dungeon that the ‘Apocalypse’ review takes place in, they can actually focus on the movie at hand. Instead of spending time finding ways to work the clown cult (which is gone, despite the costumes and makeup) into the review, and they can focus their energy and creativity on humor related to the subject matter.
Because of this, Hagan’s review of ‘The Taint’ is (to me) much better than this review. Go check it out, if you have the patience to give Hagan one more chance. There isn’t any clown posse bullshit to sit through this time, so you’ll probably enjoy it’s absence.
Thanks for the tip. It actually was more enjoyable.
But hey, I liked Linkara, but stopped watching his videos when he introduced his “characters” and “story arcs”.
Shit like this is NOT the reason we watch revies
“We”? Who is “we”? I’m certainly not included in that. Are you seriously trying to speak for the entire audience? Ignoring that such a thing is utterly childish, many people do not mind. Some people actually like it. Linkara has a very large fanbase, and Hagan is getting some popularity herself.
And either way, you do realize that Spoony has characters and mini story arcs too, right? And that they often mix with Linkara’s? So why are you even here?
I got three likes you two. I am the majority.
No you’re not.
yes he is :P
Nope, as of this posting Socrates has 6, while LoveBoat has 4. Phhhht :)
8 for me retard. My original post is way above. Are you to stupid for even that???
Retard? Let me guess: You’re in junior high, or lower.
Or you just act like it. Same difference. :)
I actually like his story arcs. I just wish they weren’t in the same video as his reviews.
Linkara: “Oh shit, I’m about to be killed by the god of Chaos! But first, let’s dig into let’s dig into Pikachu: An Electric Tale!”
You just know hes going to release that as an april fools day review.
I like the story arcs mainly because it allows even more creativity from the reviewer. In the video reviews I’ve created, I have a sotryline being told with rpgmaker and macromedia flash as cutscenes and it works for me. Although I will say Story arcs if anything can make you feel like you’ve written yourself into a corner where you’re unsure how to connect the next episode.
I guess what I’m saying though is it has allowed him to get creative, make alternate personas.. like Dr.Insano, The GateCleaner, black lantern Spoony, all would not exist without the story arcs. I really do think the characters and scenarios (like the pumpkinhead playthrough in Hell especially) have all added to the Identity of Spoony himself.
I like the arcs. It takes you a bit out of the review, but once you get used to them it’s just normal. I occasionally don’t like Linkara’s story arcs, but whatever, I’ll still watch and enjoy them. Same for all the others. Shit like this is the reason we watch these people and love them so much. They’re funny and they make a point by being better than what they’re reviewing through good writing.
I seriously don’t understand what is so terrible about Hagan’s reviews or her shtick. She’s evil. Okay. She has minions. Brilliant! She tortures minions to make points in her reviews. Awesome. They’re not the “clown posse”, if you’re intending to imply she’s doing the juggalo thing. She’s got her ideas from her own childhood and a children’s TV show she used to watch.
I just feel that the humor derived from an underground clown cult is a little forced. It’s actually sounds a little silly when you say it out loud.
Also, killing the minions didn’t help her make any points in the review (that I’m aware of). She just kills them because she thinks random violence is fully. Granted, that CAN be funny when the joke is delivered the right way. But often it’s just played straight, which is a little disturbing to me.
Remove every barrier you can to fandom. A fan will be an evangelist for your work.Dave Kellett,
In brief, you are confusing free (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/free) with not-for-profit (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/not-for-profit). These terms are not synonymous.
This comment did not go where it was meant to. Apparently it likes to wander. I imagine it will now go to visit other blogs and websites all over the internet, until one day it finds a place to settle down and start a family of its own.
And this comment is it’s first son.
I disliked this.
Thanks for sharing that. Have a cookie.
I am so confused, i dont know wether to wank or vomit to that…..thing!
Weeell….im a lonely guy so….yup.
Movies like Apocalypse and Left Behind are too stupid and painful for words!
Goddamn Fundamentalists! There’s nothing fun about you!
*grumbles*… where’s the Rapture when you need it? Send ‘em away, pleeeeaase!
(Don’t usually bother to comment, but there seems to be a lot of nerdrage up top that needs balancing out.)
I like that Spoony posts up reviews that he has cameos in. I like it when reviewers do cameos for each other. I liked this review. I liked this reviewer (she’s got a whole Pearl Forrester thing going on). I had never seen her before, and now I will go find more of her videos. I am happy fan.
There, I’m done.
The balancing out is people who keep feeling the need to whiteknight and battle everyone’s true opinions about something they wasted their time watching and didn’t like really need to STFU. Yourself included.
If “white knighting” is battling sexist, shallow inbred fucktards like you, then call me a white knight, dipshit. :)
If white knighting is complaining that people are being douchebags I am officially a white knight. You are by far the biggest proof of GIFT I have seen in a long time.
If this girl were attractive to look at I might have actually thought the video were somewhat watchable but seeing as you can’t tell if he’s a she or if she’s a he it’s just more torture. Makes you wonder if GWTG is a refuge for Shemen or something. First that God awful “IronLiz” guy and now Diamanda. I know asking for eye candy is too much but of all the Camera whores out there this is the best they could do? Not a looker in their roster. You know your stable needs work when your women look like they belong in the Rocky horror picture show. Oh and to all you naggers that object FU in advance.
someones jealous i get more pussy than him.
Oh I guess you are guy, Sorry for the insult Sir. I’m not into cats either.
Btw this video f’n sucked.
no, not a guy. i can just complete a jigsaw with my tongue. with the lights out.
God damn, wish I was invited. My wife too :)
If looking at a woman who can be confused easily with a man is a turn on to both you and freewilly I can’t help but wonder how lackluster your sexlife must be.
You spend entirely too much time obsessing over other people’s sex lives, and judging people based on looks. I’m fine with my sex life, which I would bet my bollocks is far more active than yours. You continue to be a poor example of a human being and give the male gender the bad image it has. You, sir, are fucking retarded, immature and pathetic. You lower the entire IQ of all around you simply by existing. Kindly piss off.
To quote another person who gets a lot of hate from the twat brigade: Innuendo!
Don’t take anything they say personally. Most fans of Spoony are probably decent people who can enjoy his collaborations with other reviewers and their own work, and the loudmouths giving you crap are a vocal minority.
I’m not a Fan of Spoony’s and nor does that make everyone else who clicks on a video with his name on it an automatic “Fan”. I just view his vids once a year or so when I’m bored to death. Spoony hasn’t put out a good video really since 2009 but that’s a story for another day.
Don’t take anything personal but not everyone that comes to this website is mindless GWTG drone afraid to voice their true opinion. That goes for anything or anyone that steps in front of a camera. If you can’t handle the critics gtfo show business.
If you make a video that’s sub par and people hate it learn from it and make a better one. Don’t argue with people who wasted their good time to watch the sh*t you made and QQ because they didn’t like it.
Praise is given when praise is deserved. If this video wasn’t sh*t to begin with I don’t think so many people would have hated it.
Any one who would watch this mess and think we hated it because it wasn’t a Spoony video must be out your GWTG leg humping minds. We hated this video because it SUCKED!
I’m not saying that you have to like Diamandas work. What I am saying is that you could at least try and be constructive about it.
Your original criticizm wasn’t about any lack of humor, poor lighting, factual errors or something else that might be argued against/improved upon. Instead, you complained that she isn’t, and I quote: “eye candy”. Your entire reason for not liking this video is that she doesn’t live up to your idea of what a “pretty” woman should look like. That, good sir or madam, makes you a superficial ponce.
As for the “Anyone who would watch this mess and think we hated it because it wasn’t a Spoony video” part, I will assume that you are not familiar with some of the people who frequent this site. Spoony himself has gone on record stating that the needlessly obnoxious fanboys who comment on his work have been so vitriolic as to make people unwilling to work with him. You and your ilk can thus be equated with the stage moms who, constantly pushing their children, have effectivly ruined their careers by alienating the entire entertainment industry.
If you have to criticize, at least try and be somewhat constructive. Comment on things that the people making the video can change, not just their appearance like an obnoxious thirteen year old trying to woo a girl by acting like a dick from a bad romance flick.
Well Diamanda, I guess you need to come up with some sort of hobby to fill the void on those lonely Friday nights. Maybe next time you can spend it figuring out how to make better videos.
no, my vids are fine. i’ll spend my friday nights having sex (while you get ever more intimately connected with your right hand)
Ya, i smell someone who’s Friday nights are Forever Alone…
you really ought to take a shower, then!
She already said she gets more pussy than you.
Either you lack the ability to read words that aren’t your own, or you just get bored quickly when people tell you that your a dumbass.
I’m not even debating your opinion of this video anymore. Guess what: I didn’t like her video either. Neither did a lot of people. That’s not why your pissing everyone off.
Her obvious cunnilingus joke went right over your head.
You should….really not talk on the internet anymore. Wow, dude. What are you, 12?
and you should really not reply to old ass posts from half a year ago that no one gives a f*ck about. What are you a cave man? Did you just become unfrozen and are now trying to catch up with modern times? Here’s a hint for you it’s May, 2012. January was a long ass time ago people have moved on with thier lives so should you Encino man.
It was worth scrolling down and loading up the bottom of the comments just to read that Diamanda, lol…
You should film it, i somehow get off on your makeup.
Id definitely like some taped lesbian scenes with ya!
god damn, i can only imagine the hideous bitches you go down on….
Spoken like a man who’s only sexual encounters involve his left hand and a tub of petroleum jelly.
Seriously, if you don’t find somebody attractive, you don’t have to be a douche-nozzle about it. Keep it to yourself. Avoid her videos if you must.
Yeah, and content yourself with the fact that when you finally DO get some tail, it’ll be with somebody a lot worse than you consider Ms. Hagan to be. You sir make me embarrassed for my gender.
Diamanda: Not ALL of us are shallow dipshits like this twerp. I couldn’t really tell if I find your face attractive or not since it is obstructed by make-up… but you have three qualities I value more: Smart. Creative. Attitude.
Gozara, someday you’ll learn that looks only keep someone’s interest for a finite period of time. You could be nailing Angelina Jolie every night, but if she doesn’t stimulate more than your 2in pecker, you WILL get bored of her.
I can appreciate many body types and have had experience with both the cookie-cutter waifs to the BBWs, and several in-between. With some wisdom gained by 35 years on this planet, I can tell you that I’ve had amazing sex and intense attractions to types across the board, and I’ve had lousy sex with women with near perfect bodies (by the ‘typical’ standards promoted by the media and fucknuts like you). If you mature at ALL in your pathetic life, you may grasp the concept someday that “pretty” is a subjective term, and if you limit yourself to only one type of body/face, you WILL have a pretty empty life and die either alone or married to a woman you don’t love, and who has no respect for you.
Blah blah blah I ain’t reading all that whiteknight sh*t.
Fair enough. Short reply from a male: no one here cares what you’re attracted to. We care about what’s funny. If the most important thing in a review video is how sexy you find the reviewer, then I think it speaks volumes that you’re a big enough fan of Spoony to have an account on his site.
As for the video… I liked it lol. The style is refreshing, the jokes are (for the most part) well thought out, and the Spoony cameo is just plain funny. You’ve just gained a new follower Diamanda. :)
Okay short version, your a douchebag who is judging someones video as crap because they arent attractive. I will restrain myself from jokes about how you seem to be a fan of video’s by a man.
say, when was the last time you actually had sex with a woman? i’m guessing ‘never’.
I’m a huge fan of the Spoony one and I generally find crossovers to be hit and miss. It really depends on the interaction between the two reviewers and whether I like the two separately generally has a good influence on how I like them as a whole. Until this video I’d never even heard of Diamanda Hagan, but I’ll be honest: I was actually pretty impressed. Very different style, still entertaining, still original and fun. Plus, a pretty awesome Spoony cameo – good stuff, for sure. I don’t understand the needless hate being posted around here lately.
There are attractive women on TGWTG. Nostalgia Chicks friend is hot. (I dont mean Nella, but the other one with the big boobs)
Lol, I expected this as soon as I saw there were over 600 comments. You people really think everyone who’s not Spoony sucks. Well, don’t watch the video then.
we don’t. nobody hated the Linkara crossovers, or the one(s?) with Doug, or even the latest vid with Sage. it’s about quality.
Warning: EPIC LULZY NERDRAGE IN THIS COMMENT SECTION! If oversensitive may cause epic butthurt. If this happens Preparation H is available at your local drug store.
Dont listen to them Diamanda!
I think yer hot…id love to impale you with my sword of flesh!
Wow, Spoony, your fans are jerks.
That’s Spoony’s comment section for you. The forums are much more pleasant.
wouldnt really call this a crossover more like a spoony cameo
Being a Christian myself I find this movie… really fucking stupid. And the Left Behind series is very badly written.
If I want to watch a movie with Christian themes that isn’t terrible, I’ll watch Toy Story 3, thank you very much. /Cinema Snob
Roses are red and violets are blue
Oh diamanda i want to put my penis in you!
Will you people stop making replies to my comments and get a life. I swear to Good the only thing worse than watching this video is being reminded of it. I can’t stand this website anymore and all the white knights who browse comments and feel the need to respond to anything not positive get a f*cking life already! I’m tired of checking my e-mails and seeing new reply’s to comments I made days/weeks/a long ass time ago about a damn video I could care less about! STOP IT ALREADY! SHEESH! I’m not wasting my time to read your remarks and I sure as sh*t don’t care what you think.
No. Dickhead! :)
Looking for “anything not positive”, no. Looking for assholes who insult people for no reason and think that they’re opinion is more important than other people’s, yes. That’s the thing that people like you never seem to get. “Bad taste” is entirely subjective, but since we’re so keen to state our opinions as facts, I’ll inform you that every single one of your comments is written in bad taste. You insult Diamanda on baseless and sexist terms, and then when people call you out on your bullshit, you accuse them of having no lives, and saying that you don’t want to read their entirely valid “white knight” arguments. Well, you won’t get any “white knight” shit from me, because I’m not defending anyone right now, I’m just calling out an asshole, and a presumptuous asshole at that for thinking that people, especially Spoony fans, wouldn’t continue to call you out when you spew shit from your mouth. You can tell us to “get lives” all you want, but at least we try to correct the behavior of assholes like you who hurl baseless and subjective insults at people just because you don’t like them. And for the record, don’t tell people that it annoys you to have to check on responses to old comments if you don’t want them to use that against you, it only strengthens your opponents resolve to keep spamming your email. If you don’t want to deal with it, then don’t go around insulting people. You’ll get far less hate mail if you are polite in saying that something doesn’t appeal to you.
I’m not wasting my time reading all that sh*t.
Like I told the other guy, “How about you mind your business and stop jumping into the end of a conversation” that goes for you as well. You seem to also think I just hopped on here and started flinging sh*t. Lets get it right, I came on here and made a simple well mannered unbiased comment about how I didn’t enjoy the video and then you gwtg idiots went apesh*t started bashing folks left and right who didn’t fall in love with this horrible video…
So I threw your own sh*t back at you till you all started QQing. Your good buddy Diamanda himself felt the need to open his mouth and try to make a snarky comment at someone who didn’t enjoy his video only to have it backfire on him, so really buzz off.
If you want to white knight videos at least find a good one. If you want to control peoples opinions go move to North Korea. The only assholes here are the ones like yourself that don’t seem to grasps that not everyone is going to like what you like. So please Mr. Trickster Nevermore put your foam whiteknight sword away and save it for your next cosplay or bedroom session with your bf. You’re not doing anything but making long run on sentences/paragraphs that no one is going to read.
If your goal is to waste yours/other peoples time I think you have achieved it.
You make hateful comments, don’t act surprised when people call you out on them.
Grow up? I think the people that need to “grow up” are the ones on this forum that cannot accept others opinions. I never made any “hateful” comments ( as you seem to be intending) to anyone until people started attacking me. How about you mind your business and stop jumping into the end of a conversation that occurred almost 2 months ago.
What you said about other people having poor taste for liking that video? Yeah, that wasn’t an opinion; you stated that as a fact, and it comes across as a matter of superiority.
Friendly advice: Don’t use the imperative-expository stance in your language if you aren’t stating facts. Use passive-voice instead.
Feel free to call me a “grammar/language” nazi if it please you, but that’s the psychology, and the perceived intent behind text-only language on the internet.
It’s just how people will read it.
Reply reply reply…
How became this community so negativ?
I think that it’s because most of the negative commenters are stuck inside of one of two mentalities. Either
A) they believe that insulting the person who made the video constitutes as constructive criticism, or
B) they believe that the fact that they CAN say something rude and nasty means that they SHOULD.
Either way, it shows a general lack of mental restraint, and in some cases, intelligence, on the part of many of the negative commenters. This could, of course, be solved by reteaching people that them not liking something does not make it bad, because there is a difference between subjective and objective feelings.
As a note to everyone questioning Diamanda’s gender: Fuck off. You all know she’s a woman, and you’re using it as a cheap shot. You wanna dislike most of the people Spoony chooses to collaborate with, fine, but have a little respect for HIM at least by not shitting on his peers.
I didn’t knew.
Do the guys that made this understand that the Church of England, Catholics, Greek/Eastern/Ethopian Orthodox, and 95% of the Protestant denominations in the Americas don’t include the rapture in their beliefs and the vast majority of those think Revelations is a political screed about the Roman Empire? Can’t say anything about whether the professed supernatural stuff exists in that fashion or not, but it just doesn’t seem like this type of product has a demographic large enough to make a profit.
i think i’m in love :3c
I really liked this review and I think most people complaining about it
are just morons. It is fine if you don’t like here stile, but I can’t see how
you can say with a straight face that the review was poorly made because it was
a great (low budget) production. It was informative with a good eye for detail
and clearly valid points. Maybe a bit dark and not as much jokes as I would
like, but still a decent mix. She is god, but she still needs some more
experience and development to get up there with the big ones. Keep it up and
don’t bather all the haters, they are way too hard on you. Thank you for some
time well spent. Cheers!
I kind of liked this review. The points and jokes are good Diamanda, but I think maybe it’s your delivery that people may be calling out. I don’t see tha passion here that I see in other internet reviews.
Or, I could be completely wrong, and I apologize if that’s the case.
Keep at it!
I must admit I didn’t watch this review until now because of a general avoidance of Spoony’s cameos in videos from reviewers I don’t know. But I was pleasantly surprised, and it’s kind of weird reading through some of the (mostly harshly) criticizing comments. I didn’t feel like there was anything to criticize. I mean, if Diamanda were to portray a parody of a snobbish film reviewer instead of the empress/tyrant/god character her videos would outweigh Brad Jones’, the only difference would be the chosen jokes and movies and IMHO the only place where she would objectively lose is in the clarity and volume of her voice.
I think I’ll start watching Diamanda.
Oh and maybe I’m the only one, but I’d really like to see an episode of The Spoony Revelation. XD
Settings at 4:3 because of the movie’s format, forcing 16:9 shots of Hagan into letterbox and somehow squeezing the 16:9 shots of Noah’s into 4:3. *confused face*
gozarisagod…wind your neck in you disrepectful little p***k
15:57 in case you want to skip to Spoony’s Cameo.
I like the review! Sticking it to Christians is an awesome hobby of mine as well :D
Ahm, as an Austrian I was flattered
Yes it was a major trend for those rapture movies to have the European Union as Rome Revise and there for the gateway of the anti-christ to come into our world, even though the European Union now on the verge of collapse and before that it was the united nations, oh but that ones on the verge of collapse too, and before that it was fucking soviet Russia but oh wait that’s right the Berlin wall came down and the soviet union collapsed. No the christian jingostics of this Country can’t imagine of the united christian fascist states of America being any kind of Rome revised. And for the life of Me I can’t think of reason why either, oh except for the fact that we have our large militaries in every nation on the planet, the fact that our police are jackbooted thugs that have left the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of American history like roman pretorians, the fact that our so called republic is a sham for higher up banking groups and secret societies that control interests on global scales, the fact that our so-called rule of law is a self serving proxy system that only serves itself and the upper class, the fact that we have corrupt shadow government organizations like FEMA, the department of homeland security (which much like the gustapo) and you all get where I’m going with this. Yes America is about the closest thing to Rome Revised that can actually be mentioned but christians can’t admit that because America is a divine, Jesus nation, that’s divine and shit,
random christian – No, america is a holy divine Jesus nation that Jesus himself established for us white privilaged people so that we could build massive armies and send them all over the world to secure foreign resources and kill and enslave brown people and their smelly brown gods in the name of christian over patriotism. Now if you’ll excuse me (sieg hails the American flag) establishment, establishment, you always know what’s fair!
CONTINUITY! Mormons don’t wear crosses Mormon Spoony! We wear bland

I really don’t get all the fuss about this review.
I watched this after the Sting: Moment of truth Review, mainly because I wanted to see more from Hagan and Spoony together; they really work well together.
Okay, maybe the review needed some cuts here and there, but it isn’t very different from other reviews on this site as well.
