Reb Brown loses his mind in this WW2 docudrama about the Brownout Strangler!
Hmm. Glad I checked at 3 in the morning.
It’s not even February anymore >.>
he had meant to release this in february but due to delays on other videos was unable to.
The part where Reb sang is seriously one of the creepiest things I’ve ever heard.
am I the only one who didn’t think he sounded that bad? :P
No, I thought he sounded pretty good for a big lunk.
He’s a psychotic mass murderer, he’s SUPPOSED to sound creepy.
This is a weird, weird movie.
No matter in what movie Reb plays he has to do that crazy scream for which he is known for :-) Can’t wait to see him in Sin-Jin even if he will be playing some minor role.
Yeah, even if he sings like a woman….
So Reb Brown is basically an American Jack the Ripper operating out of a Melbourne military base? Movies are weird.
Hey, man, don’t disrespect the platypus. It will fuck your shit up ten ways from Sunday. The damn things carry about fifty different types of neurotoxin in their feet. You think it’s a cuddly little duck-otter? You want to pick him up and snuggle him? Hope you enjoy your last few minutes on earth as you foam at the mouth and suffocate because your lung muscles have stopped working. Also, they lay eggs AND produce milk. They won’t be restrained by your narrow mammalian conventions, man.
I always find it hilarious how Americans pronounce “Aussie”. It almost rhymes with “hussy”. There are people who can do an Australian accent that is otherwise pretty good, but then they say “Uhss-ie” and instantly spoil it. Let’s set the record straight: it’s “Ozzie”. As in Osborne, or The Great and Powerful Oz. Spread the word!
Yes, platypuses are indeed badasses.
Especially those named Perry.
No matter in what movie he is in the cream is just vital to any character he plays :-) Can’t wait to see Reb in Sin-Jin even if it will be some minor role.
Its pronounced OZ-ZIES (Aussies). As in the Wizard of OZ…zies. :P Ossies are East Germans who are nostalgic about the GDR. Sorry Spoony but it was driving me wild lol.
Anyway, great review as always.
Are you Plinket’s apprentice now Spoony?
Your kinda turning out like that chick from Saw, except you suck less.
Actually, I think he’s turning into Ask That Guy.
Have you seen the Ask That Guy videos? He’s like that all the time. And, unlike Spoony, he doesn’t hide it.
Finaly some movie reviews! Keep’em coming Spoony.
Gotta say Spoony: Your Australian acccent is incredible.
I’m Australian, Spoony. And to be fair, I’m not offended that much by how Australians are portrayed in this film.
It was how we were portrayed at the time, but times change, we’re portrayed differently then how we were back then. We’re no longer beer swelling, Daily BBQ grilling maniacs.
Although…other countries can’t exactly deal with that fact…
T-that’s not to say you’re falsely portraying us or anything…
Times do change, true. Though my dad is still pretty much a beer drinking, BBQ grilling maniac.. just an older one. He doesn’t touch Fosters though. Strange that I’ve never really seen anyone in Australia drinking Fosters… just VB, or Carlton Draught. Ah well.
I wish I was a daily BBQ grilling maniac. Stupid convection ovens, think their so hot. Bring on the charcoal! Propane and propane accessories! DEEP FRY YOUR TURKEY!
*Foaming at the mouth, is dragged off the set*
“We’re no longer beer swelling, Daily BBQ grilling maniacs.”
Tch! As if that’s a bad thing. I’m Cuban and that’s what we do, and I’m damn proud of it.
Though admittedly we’re less of a beer swilling people than we are a tequila/rum slamming lot. It’s all in the presentation, compa and we make it look good. ;)
Wait, I don’t get it.
What did you mean by the “NCIS, they’re on the list” thing?
He has sworn to destroy anything Australian.
And I guess “NCSI” has ties to Australia.
I wouldn’t know what’s the connection between “NCSI” and Australia since I’ve never watched that show.
Great review and aussie accent. We don’t care about Yahoo Serious and Paul Hogan anymore. I’d admit Aussie Rules football does look weird to other people
Fred Phelps and his family
I can go all day, brother.
PS. Nobody in Australia drink that piss Fosters
The people drinking fosters where americans and we do have signifigantly worse taste in alcohol if big flats is still profitiable
Darren Hodges and his “Australian Protectionist Party”
I can keep listing ‘em on your side too, homes. All night and all day if need be.
Every country has dickheads, douchbags, and assholes in equal measure. Every country has people that have done stupid shit, and will continue to produce people who do stupid shit for so long as humans draw breath.
So I would suggest a little humility.
PS: But the majority of you drink Bundaberg Rum, so the fact that you avoid pisswater beer only to slug down crap rum kinda negates that point in your favor. Kinda like how Americans avoid drinking Seco but most suck down Pabst beer.
Oh shit. I never wanted to hear Reb Brown sing like a girl. :-P
Ooh, nice! Thought I would have to wait till next February to see if Death of a Soldier would pop up. Good review as always.
I’m so happy to see another Reb Brown film, and some of the aussie jokes where hilarious. Only thing that bugged me as a aussie was the pronunciation of some words. Like melbourne and aussie. Made me cringe in those bits.
You’re too good to us Spoony…
Quite good, this one. If they really wanted to go for trying to teach us something serious, Reb Brown is probably not the man to do it. He can do the crazy, but there’s no sympathy to him.
Nice review, thought it was funny as hell when the Reb starts singing and the man across the table from him pulls back like he is afraid of him. (Which by the way, is the proper response to Reb Brown breaking out in song)
can some pls tell me what the name of the song in the credits is
Loved the review. If he broke out in song in front of me, I would get the guard in the room right then and there to shoot him with that god darn rifle. Apparently tensions here were really high when the Americans were based in Melbourne (pronounced Mel-Bun), the US had to release propaganda pretty much saying ‘look, but don’t touch the chicks’. Besides the names, your accent was passable! Ah we Aussies love getting paid attention to (good or bad!) from any countries remotely geographically relevent. We’re so ignored that we friggin’ LOST FOREVER a Prime Minister (equivelent of President) and the grain production of Tibet would most likely be of more interest internationally.
Keep the Reb Brown coming. I want every one of his movies reviewed….
Also, keep it coming with the Ultima reviews. Fantastic.
Aussie Rules Football kicks ass…those guys are fucking mental, it’s Rugby turned up to 11. Took me a few games to grasp the rules properly, but it’s very enjoyable to watch.
This movie was just…wow, so much creepy from Reb. He basically played a murderous Ric Flair, I wouldn’t have been surprised to see him start chopping his victims an working the leg.
Is it wrong of me to hope that Reb would pick up a mic and bellow out:
“My friend, it’s time to walk that aisle! Woo!”
spoony is the son of harry plinkett!!!! i just figured it out! thats explains the love of science and killing hookers!!!!
also, yeah, aussies are wierd…
Man, it’s Ask That Guy. Where’s your loyalty to That Guy With the Glasses?
maby ask that guy is the mother!!!!!
He certainly does have range- there’s not many action stars who can sing that high.
Thank you Spoony.
Those were great 18:57 minutes.
Now if you will excuse me, I am going to try make a Reb Brown face in mass effect :P
I’m surprised Spoony didn’t make the Lionel Hutz objection-sustained joke.
Well, with all the Ultimate Warrior blackgate hypertime stuff going on, I suppose it still could be February…
Oh god, the timestream warped us to February JUST so we could have this.
As much as I like Spoony’s reviews, I think he should stray away from doing what Mike Stoklasa did in his Star Wars Reviews. I’m not saying he shouldn’t make the jokes like that, they are good and fit in with the review (especially in the “Beastmaster” review), but don’t go as far as trying to be exactly like RLM/Harry Plinkett.
That’s just my two cents, other than that great review as always. You’ve definitely got me into watching and worshiping Reb Brown after Strike Commando.
Why am I the only one thinking of Ask That Guy?
Why is everyone thinkinking of this “Harry Pinklett” guy?
Who the hell is Harry Pinklett, anyway?
You’d think people would follow the That Guy With the Glasses site enough to think of Ask That Guy when thinking “psycho guy doing an internet video”?
This may sound strange coming from a man with a Mullet in the year 2011, but that was seriously some of the most bat-shit insane stuff I’ve ever seen. Holy Saxton Hale, did this one creep me out!
Reb Scares me now. I’ll never look at Space Mutiny the same way again (god, this Reb would have loved that one, since the dead chicks come back to life, so he’d have an endless supply of voices to steal).
Reb Brown in a dramatic role is a bit off-putting… I kind of just want to see the guy blowing shit up.
Before I watch anything I should say YAY NEW SPOONY! My supper is saved!
I still think Spoony’s Australian is better than Michael Pate’s American. Considering that Michael Pate lived in the US for well over a decade and to the best of my knowledge Spoony has never visited Australia. Guess Pate could only play convincing American Indians.
This video was great, we got to see Eddie Betts snap a banana in the left forward pocket.
Does this mean we’ll get to see Space Mutiny: The Musical?
Wow, that was really close to a pretty good character. Although I think unintentionally. Hmmm…
Reb has a surprisingly good singing voice.
Hit and miss, Spoony. Hit and miss…
While I’m glad that you’re back to doing movie reviews, I have to say this was kinda boring. To be totally honest, I never liked your Reb Brown reviews; watching you make snide comments and jokes about a movie that you nevertheless like is nowhere near as entertaining as watching you lose your shit ranting and raving at a film you hate. Try for a little more vitriol, like you used to.
Also, can’t wait for your FF X-2 review! I have every confidence that you’ll put together something spectacular.
i googled the shit out of the brownout murders but i found nothing that said a shoot out happened between australian and american troops. i call bullshit XD that just does not sound like something that would happen.
Isn’t it funny how people commented on how bad a singing Reb Brown was, and yet no-one did on the showing of Cinema Snob in the nude? LOL
If you knew the Cinema Snob… well let’s just say you get desensitized.
Spoony! No turning into a serial killer! ….Unless you’re going to have a battle with Mister Plinkett. …which would be awesome.
Again with the Plinkett thing?
I can’t believe an obscure reviewer has more recognition that one of Doug Walker’s own character.
Harry Plinkett is NOT a TGWTG character. Ask That Guy is. Ask That Guy should be the one you are thinking of, not someone who was never part of TGWTG.
Does Ask That Guy make serial killer jokes? I dunno, I never watch that show.
You need to stop with the homage/ripoff of redlettermedia, the odd joke you did about killing people was funny but its never been part of the character so why start now?
Aside from that great review as always, looking forward to the e3 stuff.
But Spoony has done those references like, always. Even in the Dragon Strike board game review, which came out years ago, he said (regarding “demonic” D&D) that whenever he kills it’s purely for sexual reasons.
Ask That Guy has made casual references to killing people for years, so why is it a “Red Letter Media” thing all of a sudden?
Did RLM kill your dog?
Spoony’s a fan, his character matches, DOES IT FUCKING MATTER what it’s inspired from.
Plus black comedy has been around since…forever. Might as well call Spoony a Lenny Bruce knockoff.
Reb singing falsetto is perhaps the creepiest thing I’ve ever seen.
Perhaps even worse than that was the crying sceen. He sounds like a dog howling at a truck.
“OW HOW HOW HUR!”
Nice, first HD Spoony video?
“Oh come on!”
epic edit just epic.
The box looks like an old Atari 2600 Activision game.
Reb Brown lives and you Have to find him.
I really think you need to sum up “Reb Brown Month” with an interview with the man himself.
And be sure to make him yell for us so we can stand in awe of his majestic song.
That would be the most AWESOME thing EVER :|
I wonder how much it would cost to hire Reb for a small independent film, it’s really easy to get his professional contact information.
“You’ve reached the home of Reb Brown. I can’t come to the phone right now, but please leave a message after the EYAHHHHHHHHHHH!”
You have found the Reb Brown equivalent of Heath Ledger’s performance as “The Joker” in “The Dark Knight”!
W… what in the ever-loving fuck did I just watch?!
Can someone please tell me the name of the song in the intro/credits, I’d really appreciate it.
Oh, such an obvious joke overlooked. Apparently, the first victim was named MacLeod.
This still makes more sense than the plot of “Highlander 2: The Quickening”.
Overlooked American Psycho joke is overlooked.
“I CAN’T REMEMBERR!”
I approve of your approval of Jim Coburn. He was one of my mom’s best friends until he died. A great actor and a great man.
I see you’ve played kniffy/spoony before.
So if you flash your junk you get shot huh? Now all of that censorship in Australia makes sense!
You should see what they do to people who have kinky sex then you will know.
This movie is some crazy shit, man.
That scene early in where he’s drinking, and Spoony claims that nobody else can drink like that? Clearly he hasn’t met the grad students at the University of Saskatchewan. Especially we at the psych department.
*Behavioral Health Bro Fist*
Party on, Canucklehead. Party on.
Never though I would hear a Canadian guy west from Quebec saying he knows how to drink ! :P
I sat here and watched the end credits. Then I sat here and watched the blackened screen for at least 10 minutes. I’m at a loss of words because I don’t think what I saw has quite sunk in yet.
Huh? Go out drinking? YEAH! I love girls and their voices!
Oh it was good, but come on spoony you promised us FFX2, where is it????
For everything, there is a time. Patience is a virtue; Final Fantasy X-2’s review is not something that should be rushed. One must cleanse the palette before dining on a 7-course meal.
How about waiting until he finishes reviewing all of the “Ultima” games before asking him to go back to “Final Fantasy”?
Eh it seems like the Ultima reviews are getting more and more similar to one another after 3 and that probably wont change until 9 where the non online series died with a wimper I kind of just want to get to the rant for that one and maybe a review of the MMO
Red Brown…singing? No wonder they made him the guest of honor at a necktie party: That’s an image too terrible for my mind to grasp!
Why would you put NCIS on the list instead of the awful JAG?
Anyhoo, Hudson Hawk AND Robocop 2 referenced in one review? Awesome sauce. Given this Coburn character seemed to be getting laid fairly easily, maybe it’s the same characters as in Hudson Hawk.
I am guessing Spoony placed NCIS on the list because of the Australian connections to NCIS. Just google “Australian connections NCIS” to see what I mean.
Oh hai Spoony. Long time viewer, rare time commenter.
I enjoyed this review as much as ever (hint – lots) plus some bonus extra enjoyment what with living in Melbourne.
SPOILER WARNING: disjointed observations follow!
1. I hope you’re okay, I mean, you’ve vlogged about your health issues, and you look like a healthy weight lately but maybe a little tired? Sorry to get personal, but I just hope you’re taking care of yourself is all. Most of your fans are strangers to you, but we all feel a little close to you because you’re there on our screens every week and obviously we love your work, and your personality shines through your work, so it’s kind of like a favourite cousin thing? Ahem, sorry. Hope you’re well is my point here.
2. Ah, Plinkett Murder Cut! Also: Best Worst Movie! You don’t wear your RLM love on your sleeve as openly as the Nostalgia Chick, but we know. Oh yes my lovelies. We know.
3. Your Strine accent is pretty awesome!
4. I shot off to Wikipedia for seventeen seconds of half-baked research, and MIND BLOWN. This shit really happened! Maybe not precisely as shown in the film, but wow. You taught me things about my home town I never suspected. Thanks, dude!
Okay, all done gushing. Thanks for all your hard work. Stay awesome! CHANNEL Awesome!
As I said, Ask That Guy has been joking about murdering people for four years now, so why is it suddenly a “Red Letter Media”/Plinkett thing?
You are all TGWTG viewers. This is not the Red Letter Media site, this is a spin-off of the TGWTG site. Doug’s character should be the first thing on your mind, not some “Plinkett” guy.
LOL Release your anger. Only then will your path to the dark side be complete. I never knew we had to pick sides and couldn’t be fans of both RLM and TGWTG.
Stop trying to create rivalries between fan bases. Just stop it, or I’ll lock you in Plinkett’s basement.
Jokes about murder is only slightly younger than actually murdering people Ask That Guy wasnt even the first to do it on the internet.
Well, it’s simple. The cutting away to the bath of blood is reminiscent of Plinkett’s style. This is not a bad thing. It’s Spoony doing a joke that works well in his video, that happens to be similar to a thing that at least one other person has done, memorably well. Guess what? Nothing new under the sun. No whining required.
And you have a peculiar sense of loyalty. Your loyalty should be to quality. TSE, RLM, and NCritic all show a certain consistent high standard, but none of them are infallible. You admire good work when you see it, and when you see bad work, you don’t lie to yourself. These guys are all doing fantastic stuff, each in their own style, and if there are occasional comparisons to be made, then make the comparison.
A fleeting similarity between the work of two different artists is NOT an occasion for anyone to start crying.
goddamnitt spoony, DONT DO AUSTRALIAN VOICES AGAIN!!! it sounded horrible, if your going to do that, get an aussie (ie:me) to do some voice work, americans doing aussie voices is just crunge worthy, nothing against you, it’s just no american can seem to do it right.
Considering what happened to That Aussie Guy, maybe the people of TGWTG hates Aussies on principle?
Speaking as a native Aussie, Spoony’s accent was simultaneously hilarious and somehow spot-on. Welcome aboard Bruce! This is Bruce, that there’s Bruce and over there we’ve got Bruce, Bruce, Bruce, Bruce and Bruce!
Why would you put NCIS on your list? It’s a good show. I especially enjoy Abby the annalist.
Ask That Guy.
ASK THAT goddamn GUY.
Doug has been doing that particular show for four years, and this is how you repay him? By thinking of some never-been “Plinkett” guy instead of his character?
It’s like seeing a hobo reviewing a movie and thinking of some obscure “Red Letter Media” character and not of Chester A. Bum…
Oh shit, it’s the TGWTG Gestapo! Hide the ED material!
Seriously, why should I have to “repay” Walker for anything? In the entertainment business, the performer who gets the most views and attracts the most attention gets to be the trend setter for a particular idea. That’s how the business works and RLM beat him to the punch on that score. Was RLM the first serial killer reviewer character? No, that was being done by YT reviewers long before either man appeared on the scene. But but the RLM Plinkett character is the one that stands out.
I don’t owe Dougie boy jack shit. He wants to be the big man on campus for that idea? He has to pick up his game. It’s that simple.
Oh, Billy. You best be trolling, son.
Show us on the George Lucas doll where Plinkett touched you.
It isn’t really that great a show. The characters can get grating, especially Abby and whenever Anthony tries to go into ‘serious mode’ his voice always becomes really low and whispery, no matter how many people are around him and it is just laughable. They’re pretty much just a team of stereotypes and outside of the murders and the killers, most episodes end up being the same.
Worst of all is the idiotic will they/won’t they/did they/didn’t they thing they’ve got with Dinozo and Ziva, I thought that shit died with Friends but nooo, Scrubs, Big Bang Theory and now this are doing it too. WHO CARES.
Because it’s BOOOOOOORRRRI-zzzzzzz
Okay, I’m a big fan of you Spoony, but as an Aussy I was a bit offended with the way you talked about us. You just pulled out a bunch of stereotypes and threw them up on screen. Not very tasteful or clever. Australians don’t mind having fun poked at them but the whole shrimp on the barbie thing is done to death. Its like if someone mentions China and you reply with “Awww chingchong-chingchong”. You can do better.
This whole thing reminds me a bit from when “The Simpsons” make fun of a certain country. They send angry responses and such but they sure don’t complain when The Simpsons makes fun of American culture – which is to say, pretty much in every episode!
That’s one of the ironies of the Australian character. Being able to laugh at yourself is seen as a virtue, but we can’t seem to take it when others do the laughing.
And hey! Spoony pronounced Melbourne right! He’s already doing better than 90% of the tourists I bump into.
It’s mostly just parodying those Fosters commercials, and from what I understand, Fosters isn’t even really Australian, so I can understand how you guys wouldn’t see the commercials. Here’s one of them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPgSa9djYU8
Let it go, sport. He makes fun of everyone and everything. Being oversensitive is not a good trait in this day and age and laughing at others but throwing a fit when you get jabbed is a bad practice. If you don’t mind getting “poked”, then just laugh and move on.
You’re awfully haughty considering your having descended from a gaggle of convicts.
Thankyou for not saying british convicts. We have our national pride.
I would have liked something better than recycled Fosters and Paul Hogans jokes from the 80s, but oh well. Bonus points for getting “Melbourne” right.
(Said points subsequently deducted for the Azaria Chamberlain ‘joke’. Why do Americans still see a toddler getting mauled to death by a wild animal as comedic fodder?)
I love your Australian accent, and this is coming from an actual Australian.
The USA saw the Ozzies as latecommers?
They joined the war in 1939!
I don’t accuse Spoony of wrong fact, I accuse these facts of being more annoying because they are correct.
You got it backwards.
Spoony said the Aussies saw the Americans as latecomers.
..which would also be wrong as far as the Pacific War was concerned.
Maurie Fields as a cop. As a child of the 80’s who only knew of Maurie from his appearances on Hey Hey It’s Saturday, that blows my mind to see him in a drama role.
Was that a Mr. Plinkett reference in there?
It’s official: we need a new “Ask That Guy With the Glasses” episode.
It’s time to show these traitors who’s the ORIGINAL web video character who makes humurous references to brutal murder.
Perhaps then you’ll remember that you are in the That Guy With the Glasses site and not in the “Red Letter Media” site.
But Mr. Plinket technically came first in a way the character was used in a movie put out by the company Red Letter Media.
Actually, Spoony had made passing references to things like this well before the Red Letter Media review of Episode I. That is not to say RLM or Spoony are ripping anything off. I consider it more homage than anything.
Oh, okay, I guess you’re right. Since Doug Walker started doing the NCritic show, no one else anywhere is ever allowed to do anything in any way remotely connected to:
Movies, cartoons, TV shows, video games, posters & paintings.
Satire, parody, spoofing, comedy of any sort.
Swearing, ‘blue’ comedy, guns or gunplay, fisticuffs or other violence.
Crossovers! Crossovers, of any kind whatsoever, are now banned in all media forever, because TGWTG has shown us some crossover type material.
Reviewing, critique, and analysis. Gone, Doug Walker holds the copyright now to these concepts.
‘Riffing’, or parody voice-over type work, in any form, is also banned. Doug Walker did this a couple times, therefore no one else may do this, ever.
Music! Doug Walker has used music in his videos! So no more music for anyone else.
Are ya beginning to SEE, Billy, is a pattern forming here?
That time he danced naked was more intense !
That’s right, Brad Jones danced naked on his porch. Thank you for that.
I will never forget the expression on his face. His mouth was square and angry, like Carl Anderson in JC Superstar.
There were several pitched battles between Australian and US soldiers. The battle of Rockhampton was one if i remember correctly. It was caused when US soldiers said to Australian soldiers, who were going to Townsville and the area, that they were going back to Brisbane to fuck their wives. Yeah…. the aussies opened fire on the train.
I mean …damn.
As a Queenslander, never heard anything about one in Rocky but Brisbane was the big fight everyone vaguely remembers.
McArthur kinda lit the fuse on that one by standing up at his welcoming event and calling the Kokoda troops disorganised riff-raff.
._. why do you have a naked picture of the Cinema snob that is beautifully shot? If you didn’t before… then when did you go and get it XD
Course I don’t mind actually >;D
Jones is just about the whitest motherfucker I’ve seen this side of The Joker. As a black man, I’ve seen some pale folks, but Brad is almost translucent!
But hey, if he has the huevos to expose his huevos for comedy, more power to him.
We already had that one scene with Benzaie in the Beastmaster 2 review, so why not have Cinema Snob now while its hot.
Spoony, you’re gonna get a hell of a lot of flak for this one.
damn straight, im gonna make a response review giving shit to americans, why, Australia is awesome!
Why? I was under the impression that Aussies still had something resembling a sense of humor and ability to laugh along with the rest of us.
Oi! We do! Just as long as you don’t insult our beer, our spirits, or our import of beer or spirits. Or insinuate that all we do is drink.
… And just as long as you’re not from Tasmania. Oh yes. I went there.
Woah, that’s a hell of a limitation: I got a freight truck full of slams against Bundaberg Rum.
(Seriously, Aussies you can do SO much better than that swill).
… Yeah, okay, we can’t really avoid that one. In out defense, I’ve only ever known anyone to drink it only AFTER all the worthwhile alcohol has been consumed.
But seriously, guys, we make our apologies to the rest of the world. I suppose this is how Canada feels after losing Nickleback on everyone.
I’m not psychologist but what part about Reb’s behavior was sane!? The guy was a howling nutjob when he wasn’t drinking and he showed no signs of remorse or care andd that I think is a clear sgn that he might’ve been a Psychopath with other signs of possible Dissociative identity disorder with the whole werewolf thing!
Ok on to another thing I noticed! I don’t know when this was made but by the way Reb looked I’m guessing this movie in some creepy way was where they got the idea to hire him as Capt. America because if you ignore all the woman strangling he does look like freaking Steve Rogers when he’s all dressed up in WW2 garb at the camps and bars!
DID is doubtful. He doesn’t radically change personalities or behavior patterns, nor does he exhibit any remorse or confusion for his actions (which would usually occur when an Alter is responsible). He seems more like a Schizophrenic with psychotic features.
Of course, the way this movie is paced and scripted he could really be a hairy man-beast and the SFX budget ran out, so who knows.
Oh Awesome Some one actualy responded to my comment! Yeah he doesn’t actually
change his personality, but he does show since of a clear insanity plea worthy
person but this is the 1940s when people where pretty stupid and unawear of alot
of mental issues as people are today!
Well, speaking as a mental health professional myself I’d say that hasn’t changed. People are pretty damn stupid and unaware of mental health issues today. At least in the 1940s people read books. Now it is a rare bird that doesn’t just read Wikipedia, accept it and end it there.
He definitely could have copped a insanity plea, but I’m not sure if that would have helped him since the governments in question were looking to sacrifice him to appease the angry mob (a sobering reflection of how those in power view human life, no?).
If only time traveling Johnny Cochran was there! =)
BEST. REVIEW. EVER.
What would “Yatzee” think of this?
yeah, cept ben “yahtzee” croshaw only lives in AUstralia and it actually english.
Yahtzee also admitted to being a fan of Spoony in an interview once, although if he had gotten Yahtzee for a cameo it would have been awesome.
Reb Brown was actually nominated for a Best Lead Actor in a Dramatic Role award from the Australian Film Institute for this film.
Jesus, thats just inhuman of you. I mean you guys threw two Nuclear bombs at Japan and that itself was horrendous. But to suggest sending REB BROWN into japan? that just spells fucking GENOCIDE!
Even throwing another 2 A-Bombs seems more reasonable than that.
Sorry Spoony, but as an Australian, I really must protest!
We do not…and I’ll repeat that, we do NOT drink “Fosters”…Yeech!…that stuff tastes like cat-piss!
That’s why we sell it to other countries….(horrified pause) uh….I just wrote something I shouldn’t have, didn’t I?
JS Ale is welcome in my mug any day.
what reb brown could’ve at least tell those girls about disneyland before choking them to death after all if a crying reb brown can tell a dying kid about disneyland before he dies then a batshit insane brown can rant about disneyland and womans voices before committing murder.
Bloody Death of a Soldier.
One of the things that really grates me regarding this movie is the “Train Battle”, such an incident never occured.
The closest thing to that ever occuring was when The 738th MP Battalion (rather unsportingly) decided to arm their MP’s with Shotguns during the Battle of Brisbane; which went from drunken riot to shooting incident with 1 dead, and 6 injured by gunshot really fast.
and you just learned the difference between ‘based on a true story’ and ‘a true story’
Friggin’ hilarious movie and review, thanks Spoony! HOWEVER I was really hoping for a teaser in the end for Last Flight To Hell!
An almost comical movie until I did a wikipedia check and saw that it was based on a real event. Maybe the “divorce” joke about a murder that actually happened was in bad taste.
You finally reviewed it! Man I’ve been hoping you would do a review of this movie ever since I found out about it and uploaded it to youtube.
And yeah, it is based on a true story. But what’s even more surprising is that, according to wikipedia.org, Reb Brown was nominated for an acting award in Australia for his role in this.
Come on, just make it Reb Brown Year. Their has to be more Reb out there.
*Snooty french accent*
Typical american, ‘e likes zee shooting and zee killing, but ‘e canno’ take she romance of zee old.
Yahoo Serious? You can fucking have him!
This film has a 7/10 on IMDB!
It deserves a 10/10
where is FFX-2 coom on spoonyone,ive got this 500 cash sitting waiting to figure out and just now to get it to you in sept,I ell be in arizona then
omg Spooony kills hookers it Spoony the Ripper ha ha just kidding Spoony you are BRILL and so is this reveiw :)
Do people really say “Brill” now?
It’s the new hip thing, like “adve” “mill” and “Bill”
yea lol but people are starting to say “slick” god we english are weird
Ah I thought you were trying to coin it as I had never heard it before, honetly. Sounds interesting. Like the British version of hella or something.
i think its because im from britan and alot of people say it
What.The.Fuck…………I mean,well,if your going to lose your mind you might as well kill some hookers on the side
Good review, ACCEPT FOR ONE FATAL FLAW; It’s pronounced Ozzy not Aussie!
“It’s the 1940’s–seeing a woman’s granny panties was the equivalent of watching the Paris Hilton sex tape today.”
I thought you were into comic books–you might have heard of Tijuana Bibles…
Wow. I know we’ve had our fair share of wackos locally out here, but apparently we import them as well. Well I suppose weirder things have happened… like the invention of the pie floater (don’t ask, don’t look it up, and whatever you do, do NOT get hammered in a capital city in Australia and then walk into a 24/7 convenience store which sells “baked goods”).
Anyway. Great review as always. I’m glad we got one more Reb Brown review to close off the one we didn’t get in February. Good choice too.
Just nitpicking but what kind of an idiot strokes a Koala against the direction of the hair? It obviously hates it and ducks down to avoid it, resulting in it escaping to a nearby tree.
Spoony wanna see good drinkers? the sluts in england…..fuck me they put em away
What about the scene in transformers 2 where shia pretty much just randomly SCREAMS out loud flailing his arm when the army find him, giving away his position
Gah! posted that last one on the wrong video, Thought the comments changed if you switched vids
whenever I watch any of spoony’s older vids the image doesn’t appear correctly, rather the pixels mash together and it leads to a greenish tint (by greenish I mean like microsoft paint bucket levels) so anyone know what’s up with that?
Why is he screaming Hulk Hogan at the beginning?
he’s yelling Jackoda!!!! from the Robowar review
Strike Commando actually :3
Wait, Spoony, you mentioned Champions Online… Do you play that game? ‘Cause I do! :3
i cant get enough of reb brown’s yells lol. that part where he mixes his beer with ketchup, mustard, and salt/pepper was just crazy. the ketchup looks more like a bottle of hot sauce. sad to see that reb is actually the bad guy in this one and LMFAO at reb singing like a choir boy.
Hey Spoony I managed to get that shot (the manliest moment ever) and frame it, then put the title REB BROWN YAAAAH! over the top in photoshop like you wanted. Now I need to get in touch with a bus company.
Because idiots are stupid.
Oh, Captain Spoon. I just re-watched this – it’s one of my faves! Also: your trolls are not very good at trolling. I mean… they’re just morons!
Seriously, thanks for Rebruary, thanks for going the extra mile here, thanks for covering a film that really isn’t your usual style (I love your usual style, and I love when you step outside it) and just generally thanks for coming back to life!
I hope you’re doing well in all of your private things that are no business of mine.
Stay awesome, Noah Antwiler. CHANNEL Awesome!
Actually during WWII whenever another nation’s forces were stationed at another country, they were often disliked by the locals. The Americans were a bunch or loud A-holes who acted like they owned Sydney, the Australians were a pain in the ass to the British in Egypt, and the British made a lot of snide remarks to the Americans.
Makes you wonder how we ever worked together in the first place.
I believe the term is called Tribal mentality is why it wont work.
hahahah that reference to The Room was too much
I think you missed the point of the name. the name is supposed to mean that he is killing people, and it will become the death of him, and his status of “soldier”
And Reb Brown almost won an Australian Best Actor award for this too.
I know I’m a couple of years late to the party, but…..holy crap, is that a Time Chasers T-Shirt?! When, where, and why did you get that?!
James Corbun’s really one of the great actors of all times.
Reb makes a very believable villain right off the bat. After watching him drink beer for 5 seconds, his character seems like the kind of guy who trolls on the internet, racks up sexual harassment charges, shouts racists things at people crossing the street, keys people’s cars just because it’s Monday, pisses on the flowers in public parks, & would wrestle a grizzly for $5 on a dare while asking you to hold his beer.
