I LOVED seeing Joe just going at it with the machine gun!
Nooooo! Spoony lost his hat! This is madness!
SUBURBAN KNIGHTS! *light slap*
Whatever it’s 2009!
D’aw. What a cute ol’ lady.
Am I the only one who was sad there wasn’t a “I kicked that map into the river!” Blair Witch shoutout? ;)
Anyway: hurrah for early episode 4! More!
I am enjoying this! Can’t wait for the next episode. Just for the record, I am surprised no one dressed up like one of the Doctors.
Fantasy characters, remember? The Doctor is sci-fi. Really wild, out-there, British sci-fi, but still.
Let’s face it: Doctor Who has enough ‘magic’ to earn a ‘fantasy’ label. I mean, they brought back someone who was ripped out of time (and thus never existed) by the magic of… remembering him.
…I just imagined an army of Daleks at the Battle of Minas Tirith. Excuse me, I need a towel.
Sci-fi is technically a sub-genre of “fantasy”. At least the last time genres were explained to me it was.
Yeah, but before we go getting our lawyers out remember that most hardline geeks (at least here in North America) see a vast difference between the two.
whoah. shit just got real
awesome work as always from the whole gang! joe as Inego is priceless and Spoony’s Gandolf is priceless. shaping up to be the best summer movie yet! lol keep ‘em comin boys, we’ll keep watchin’!
I declare this win. I think Orlando is supposed to be Harry Dresden but definetly darker and decidedly evil.
Dresden doesn’t actually wear a hat, though.
Ya i know that is only to make the cover looks pretty. Still the staff and leather coat match well to Butcher’s descriptions.
So that’s what he has to do as Winter Knight.
Also, you’re the first person on three different sites who’s mentioned Dresden. The cover art (with Dresden dude) is basically why I watched this.
i duno about the first. try checking the part 1’s probably got mentioned there first.
I don’t want to sound rude, but I can’t help but ask what is with the trees in the main screenshots of this series?
I wonder if it’s supposed to convey the epicness of this series, or Doug just loves the spring trees?
Either way, I was expecting someone to come out with a chainsaw and try to cut down the trees in such a rage.
Am I the only one here that thinks they should just pitch this to a Hollywood studio and get it released as the summer blockbuster, by far much better than majority of the crap that’s come out already this year.
Spoony’s: “Now run like small children” line made me crack up. And Joe with the machine gun, epic does not begin to describe it!
The plot thickens… I’m liking where this is going! Woo!
I don’t know exactly where this satire of modern society came from, but I find it kinda offputting as it comes to the actual main quest of the movie. Sort of makes the thing seem like more than jsut a quest, and I don’t know if I particularly take to that.
I love how well Doug knows everyone’s stuff. He implemented the GATEKEEPER? Wow, that’s some dedication. Imagine all the Spoony you’d have to sift through and remember to recall that character. And… man, you make a scary chick.
That Jew Wario line of the gestapo made me lol up inside in about a hundred different ways.
I like how Joe just carries around machine guns too.
Seems Film Brain just change sides in every movie as well. Quite interesting in a nazgul sort of way.
Ten bucks says he comes back as Voldemort.
His looks would make him a better Draco Malfoy(just get rid of the glasses and sideswipe his hair)
Seeing Noah as a woman reminds me of Monty Python.
I don’t like spam!
Wow Spoony really owns this episode! Not only he plays Gandalf, but a great majority of it includes the Gatecleaner. I wonder if the part with Spoony in drag is a parody of Scarlett.
Seeing as they broke up that might be a sensitive topic.
spoony is whats really making me watch this lol
Agreed. I would argue that the Cinema Snob is also one of the more likeable things in this movie. To tell you the truth though, I am under the impression that the plot is not moving after watching the first 3 parts.
They are throwing characters like The Cloaks, Cat and the Good Witch at me. Even though they did explain that they are here to stop “anyone who is not worthy” of getting something, I have no idea of their motivations behind doing so and what are their roles in the overall plot.
Almost every joke pulled is almost out of context with the plot. At least the part with the pebble and Pumpkinhead has some relevance to the plot. If asking for directions on where to go is considered what that moves the plot.
this guy with the shades and staff is boring as hell.
Orlando is not boring he is a badass
He might not be boring, but the character he potrays sure as hell is. He’s an emotionless automaton and a dick who goes around blasting innocent bystanders because they DARE to use tehcnology. Oh, how did they make those nice clothes and sunglasses of his? Maybe they were made with *gasp* technology?Other then that, I’m liking this series/anniversary special thingy.
” He’s an emotionless automaton and a dick who goes around blasting
Damn what you said pretty much reminded me of Randy Orton’s gimmick. Oh God I hate this guy.
Jokes aside, yeah, same here, I don’t really like Orlando’s character since he reminds me too much of Randy Orton and feels too “serious” for such a movie. But the comic relief is good, and I don’t wanna feel like asskissing you Spoony, but you really stole the show for me. Damn, the Gatekeeper part made my day.
Well, he is pretty much the villain. That was established from the getgo.
its not that they dare to use technology, its more complex than that. Technology that takes away their freedom of choice. technology that reduces the need for thought, technology that prohibits interpersonal interaction and other technologies like that . his clothes and sunglasses do neither. when you said Orlando may not be boring when i wrote my statement i was making no distinction between the actor and character since we do not know the characters name yet.
well subsequent videos have proved me wrong in this. congratz you won
I hate it when people talk about ‘purpose in their lives’. People who say that misuse the word ‘purpose’ and ‘meaning’.
Like when ask ‘what is the meaning of life’. Meaning can be assigned to life in the same way that meaning can be assigned to a rock. Use the rock for whatever you want. The same goes for life, it’s just there to help you do what makes you happy.
The Meaning of Life? Oh, that’s simple. I’ve had some folks working on it, and we’ve come up with 2 fundamental concepts. 1: Matter is Energy. And 2: People aren’t wearing enough hats. We call the latter the Team Fortress 2 Effect.
Oooh. Matter IS energy. *Forehead smack* Annnnnd… done!
Solved the Anti-Life Equation!
It was pi.
I was expecting a lot more then a machine gun from Joe I figured he would pull out something like a Gattling Gun, Six barrels and just mow down the shades.
Wow, this updated faster than I expected.
Spoony’s getting better about updating his website.
A transvestite that has a deep familial resemblence…
The blaghole must be a truly terrifying place.
Maybe the Gatekeeper just needs to be reminded when to buy more croutons. Isn’t that why everyone keeps a transvestite in the closet?
Yes… for croutons. And nothing more.
Wow, the Nostalgia Chick looks really bored in this one. I guess she’s supposed to be the person we can identify with.
Does anyone else find it unbelievably stupid that someone wearing manufactured clothing and sunglasses is lecturing people on not using technology? Is this…. let’s call him a character, supposed to be an idiot? We’ve relied on technology for the last 5,000 years. It just seems stupid to single out digital devices.
You’re looking for, what, hard realism and Summer Blockbuster quality from a) a comedy, and b) a budget-less online video paid for out of the cast’s own pockets so you could watch this for free?
Get over it.
How about a joke that isn’t a reference or screaming/overacting? That’s literally all these things are. Also, breaking the action into seven parts that continuously get shorter and don’t really go anywhere makes the entire thing feel like padding. Here’s how the special could work much better: The maps they are carrying supposedly has riddles on it, so why not have those riddles stated the audience? Instead, the “riddles” and just obvious statements or really stupid shit that relies on a lack of logic.
These anniversary specials are really just lame and come off as really hypocritical since every person on here whines about how poorly written or boring movies/games are every week. You’d think they’d at least have some creative ideas for their own.
Looking over your comments, I don’t know what’s worse; that you seem to have nothing to say that isn’t bitter and pig-headed, or that you seem to feel its your job.
Spoony and the folks at TGWTG do what they do out of love for geek-culture, and they do it largely out of their own pockets so we on the internet can enjoy it for free. I enjoy their work, and while I won’t agree with everything they have to say, I appreciate the effort they put in, and I respect that they continue to do so in the face of trolls who try to bully them into sucking their internet-cocks.
The point is, you’re not some lone-hero whistleblower exposing some great hypocrisy with your broken-record diatribe. You’re just flinging shit to see what sticks. If you hate all of this, don’t watch it. The internet has something for everyone, no matter how decadent, depraved, or dim-witted they are, so go find something you enjoy, or if you can’t handle not having something to bitch about, go start a blog or join a forum dedicated to hating everything Spoony does.
I guarantee you he’ll be civil enough not to follow you there and piss on your yard in return.
Amen! I couldn’t have said it any better.
Dude, it’s just supposed to be a fun movie for fans of the show. Chill. You are a sopping wet blanket right now.
That guy must be the inspiration for the N. Critics nit-picky fanboy character..One of 100s I’m sure.
I have to ask, what game/movie did Spoony review to get the Gatekeeper?
Its from his Nightmare board game review.
I’m really liking group two (Spoony’s) more than group one (Critic’s). I hope I will like group one more in the last few parts. Most of the plot seems to be happening in group two with group one as filler. I still like all of it though.
I love the fact that Todd keeps on translating gandalf!Spoony xD
Oh! Nice to see you again Gatecleaner!
I watched this on TGWTG but I felt so compelled to praise Spoony’s performance that I had to come here and make my debut as a commenter:
The cruton lady was Spoony’s Best. Performance. To. Date. I laughed my ass off, then back on, and then off again!
Spoony dresses up like a girl again xD AWESOME!!! XD btw Orlando is awesome!
Spooney, you always have the best lines cus’ this was great. I just wish you said “I’LL SEND YOU TO THEE BLAG’OLE.”
Obligatory “MarzGurl, your Japanese is horrible” comment.
That line where Joe says, “King Kong ain’t got shit on me!!”
It’s actually from Duke Nukem Forever when Duke stomps on a shrunken enemy.
It’s a quote from Training Day, a Denzel Washington film from 2001.
the gatekeeper part was really funny! You are the best of the bunch out there Spoony.
I enjoyed TF-3 a great deal this afternoon.
It’s a horrible Japanese all the way, oh my Gah.
You mean the woman who isn’t a native speaker of Japanese made some minor errors? ZOMG!
Seriously, it doesn’t matter. She made an effort to translate as best as she could (and having been there I know she was practicing all the damn time) and 99% of us aren’t going to be looking to a website’s anniversary video to teach Japanese.
my Wife is Japanese and she said its passable for a white girl :P
Well, can’t argue with that kind of praise :D
I keep saying Spoony’s team is WAY better than the Critic’s, not just by acting and by awesome moments, but also because content alone. I’m *this* close to ask WHY couldn’t it be all about Spoony’s side alone. Let’s see if tomorrow’s chapter encourages this path of thinking.
‘I didn’t know we could use machineguns!’
So where is Spoony-dalf’s Flame of Anor?
no point in hauling out the big guns on lvl 1 mobs :P
That bit with the rock had me in stitches. Awesome. Also, Inigo Montoya with a machine gun. That’s how it’s done!
I’m wondering: Why is Spoony wearing a Star Sapphire ring in these pictures? Indigo would fit Gandalf a bit more, IMO.
It’s because Gandalf has the red ring of fire, according to Spoony.
Yes Linkara Gandalf has Narya, the ring of fire given to him by Cirdan when the Istari arrived in Middle Earth.
Gah I worry about you.
Just kidding. XD
Ohhhh. That makes more sense then.
Spoony doing the gatekeeper and then the woman totally made me think of Ernest P. Worrell.
Also: Mordor is on the map.
That should be very interesting.
Filmbrain is Wanavus?
Wanavus = One of Us
Basically Filmbrain is now suppose to be brain washed into joining the cloaks. Would have been funny if they lead him to a pool and told him to pretend it was a river and actually threw him in.. Brain Washed.. get it
Haha! I am loving this so far! Joe’s epic line in this episode had me rofling!
I was kinda sad though that nobody played a character from Final Fantasy *coughSpoonycough* since you are supposed to be a FANTASY character, it just kinda fits. Also, I wish Paw had gone as King Graham, but otherwise, this is amazing! I so can’t wait for more!
Oh God I’m laughing my ass off here…Spoony, the Two Potters, Angry Joe…I love you guys SO much right now -XD
Linkarthur is using a sword, the same design as the cloaks. I wonder if that means something or if they just ran out of prop swords.
Check out the comments for part 2 and I explain it there. In short – pretty mcuh yeah, we ran out of prop swords and I tried to hide the fact that it’s the same. XD
That, or you’re actually a cloak spy.
No sense denying it; I’m keeping an eye on you.
We’ll just tell say on the commentary that a moistened bint hurled it at you.
I cast see the cast reflection inside of evil-Morpheus’ sunglasses when he is talking to that girl he fried.
hm i don’t know. i really liked part 1 but the whole story doesn’t really evolve/move on and the joke-frequency isn’t quite as high (or good) as i expected it to be. another problem is the bad guys. they aren’t funny at all and therefore don’t fit in this movie.
i’m looking forward to the next parts though. but i think i’ll prefer kickassia over this.
For a quick minute I thought they got Tracy Ulman to play the forest witch.
oh spoonyone, you must get a bit more exsposure, MORE SPOONY MORE SPOONY
The Harry Potter bitch slap stole the show ^^
Could someone please explain the rings that Spoony wears? I thought that the red ring that Gandolf Spoony wears was the ring of fire from LoTR, but a lot of his alternate characters have colored rings.
I must be missing something obvious…
If I was to guess it’s a green lantern ring painted red. He said he had them in several colors when he was talking about black lantern Spoony.
or in character Narya, ring of fire given to him by Círdan and forged before the one.
In this story Spoony is wearing a pink not red ring. And it is not a painted Green Lantern ring it is a Star Sapphire ring. The red ring in question is a Red Lantern ring. There are a total of nine Lantern Corps.
The painted part was a guess after he said he painted a ring to get Black Lantern Spoony’s ring. Further I saw it quick. Combine that with my theory on it being Narya, the Ring of Fire or Red Ring, and you can see my confusion.
I still hold that it’s meant to be Narya given that it’s worn by Spoony The Grey.
Now what can I say. I referenced the Silmarillion and you somehow out geeked me. Congrats.
I’m not saying you’re wrong that it’s meant to be Narya. And when Spoony said he painted them he meant that he painted the symbol and outer ring on each ring. Also I’m sorry if I geeked out bit I’m a huge Green Lantern fan.
Hey, if you can’t geek out on the site of a video game critic were can you.
The rings that Spoony weas are the rings of the Lantern Corps. There are nine in total. Green Lantern Corps, Red Lantern Corps, Blue Lantern Corps, Orange Lantern Corps, Sinestro Corps (yellow rings), Star Sapphires (pink rings), Indigo Tribe (purple rings), Black Lantern Corps, and White Lantern Corps.
Holy freaking god this new movie thing of theirs is AWFUL. I thought it couldn’t get any worse than Kickassia, and lo and behold, I was incredibly wrong. The very, very few funny parts involving the reviewers that are actually amusing are spread out WAY too thin, with a bunch of no names from TGWTG’s site blabbing on and on and on. GET BACK TO DOING NORMAL REVIEWS.
funny i know all of the reviewers featured. maybe if you actually stopped by thatguywiththeglasses.com instead of Trolling here you’d know who they were too.
Preferably somewhere else.
shut the hell up
Well just rename him Benedict Filmbrain.
I liked the first anniversary it had some cleaver jokes and many were throwbacks to jokes made by the individual talents, Kickassia and Suburan Knights is just boring and not funny. You would think all these talented people would be able to think of something other than (Hey lets over react for 2 hours because that will never get old). Though the first anniversary video had the no production value and was only filmed done in a day, using only a hotel room as a setting it was far funnier.
Deal with it.
At least there are few jokes in each episode you could laugh. Especially when the focus is on the party of Spoony. But I do agree, there are so many repeated and old jokes, and up until now the show has been hit or miss.
I have to say that the gags aren’t making me utterly ROFL, perhaps because the intense heat where I am means I’m lucky to be conscious. But nevertheless I’m still having *loads* of damn fun. :D
Is there a problem with the picture ratio? Sometimes the picture “cuts out” the characters while they’re speaking in front of the camera. Strange.
Liked the rock scene.
Think this is the 5th time im watching this and every time im so impressed with the one playing the good witch of the forest, shes very good
Although it had a slow start this is turning out to be really incredible! I love the bullets being blocked by the swords. The special effects have been top notch through out this whole movie so far!
“RUN LIKE CHILDREN!” Our leader ladies and gentleman, when in doubt run away from your enemies, because the enemy won’t bother.
Seriously though this was a great 5th part!
LOL to spoony as rock keeper guy
Spoony is too funny.
