With Spoony still missing, Doctor Insano takes over the show to talk about a particularly deceptive sci-fi/fantasy disaster.
Yay for Isano!
You do realize that because you misspelled Dr. Insano’s name, he will now kidnap you and perform SCIENCE on your undead body for all eternity, right?
Lol sorry, was just about to sleep when the review came up, had to sleep 20 minutes later then. My spelling still sucked, though :P
I remember renting this movie many years ago and I couldn’t finish it. I got up to the part with the fucking ice cave and said “fuck this!”. Luckily I was smart enough to rent second movie as well so my evening wouldn’t be completely lost.
This review was INSANELY awesome. Ahahahaha
But srsly this review was pretty cool. i kinda feel sorry for you for having to do the Insano voice for a full 20 minutes.
I loved the commercial joke but it would have been funnier if you had a few more ppl taking about more symptoms.
Are you going to do more reviews as other characters? Because although that may seem kinda cool, most of your other characters are really only good for a short joke like the Ultimate Warrior or Hulk Hogan.
Love this Video.. Insano should, you guessed it (insert Bison here) “TAKE OVER THE WORLD” with SCIENCE!
But the Audio in some Cutscenes is much louder then the rest of the Video. Nearly got a heartattack ^^.
P.S. Awesome that there is a car crash scene out of “Alarm für Cobra 11″ a really dumb german action series
I refuse to believe that Bull Shannon could be so easily defeated.
Great review! The Final Fantasy X-2 bit was probably the funniest moment since Yor’s Hanglider
Also, Richard Moll, why the fuck were you in this movie!? You’re a beloved TV actor! You were Bull the bailiff on Night Court! You were fucking Two-Face! What are you doing HERE?! Was the fact that the film was passed off to multiple directors not an obvious enough sign?!
This probably came before Richard Moll got his big break in Night Court. In fact, I recall seeing an interview with Moll where he described how, due to his unique features, his acting career before Night Court usually consisted of playing weird, heavily made-up monsters and creatures in crap films just like this one.
I was blown away to see the forgotten origins of one of Adam Savage’s most famous catchphrases revealed at last. It makes perfect sense that he would have this movie rattling somewhere in his subconscious, to anyone who’s followed his tweets it’s blatantly obvious that in the 80’s he would have been a D&D playing nerd who got suckered into renting this movie exactly like Spoony did.
It’s wonderful to see you do another movie review, I really enjoy these. It is also great to see Insano get some screen time!
Dungeons & Dragons has been so horribly mistreated every single time something even attempts to portray it that I have really lost hope in a good adaptation being made (unless possibly if the venerable Spoony One were to try his hand at it). It seems most directors just miss the point entirely of what DnD is supposed to be.
Oh no!! The Dungeonmaster is Count von Krolock!!
This was pretty funny, I loved the reference to Kickassia
where I missed it?
The ‘shoot lightning from his fingers yelling “science”‘ reference.
oooohhhhh lol. I thought he said “Kickass” I love that movie. I didn’t read he said Kickassia.
I liked how it was purely a verbal reference and he didn’t feel the need to hammer the point home by actually showing the clip .
I love the power glove
It’s so bad.
Hooray, more Insano Experiment. I do recall Spoony saying in the Ferris Bueller commentary that doing these really wears him out, so once a year is just about perfect for Insano to steal the show.
This movie was on netflix a few days ago. it’s probably still there. but fuck it.
God damn it, that is the worst and most annoying joke that Family Guy ever violated our minds with. Can you please shoot him again, Insano?
Oh I don’t know, Conway Twitty got old really fast for me…..
Insano was quite awesome in this review. My only problem with him as the ‘villain’ here was that he used ONLY a gun in the one scene. You’d think some sort of death ray or more…creative weaponry would be on the table with Insano. Also surprised to see no Burton or Insano’s ‘child’ here :(. I mean…wait isn’t Insano pissed at Burton considering he killed off his kill Spoony plan with that self-destruct system?
i believe the insano you are talking about is the original from Spoony’s Final Fantasy 8 reviews, which surprisingly hasn’t resurfaced since then. this Insano version is the clone Linkara made in The Clones of Bruce Lee review, which has made at least on and off apperances.
i feel as if i am going to get hate for knowing too much about the ‘storyline’ of the spoony experiment.
YES! The Insano Experiment returns! Awesome review, Spoony.
Also, I want some Insano science goggles. If Insano doesn’t have a Twitter account, he should.
Noah, by my count this makes 3
I think it’s time you drop this bad gag. You need to get Beyond Thunderdome
I’ll never get over Macho Grande. ;)
I was just noticing, the big face on the cover looks like Terry Gilliam from Monty Python.
Wow. So that’s where Adam got that catchphrase.
“Well that just blew my mind!”
It blew mine too. In fact, it deepthroated it and swallowed.
Hmmm, Very interesting, I look forward to seeing how (or even if), Spoony will make his reappearance for X-2.
Also, Yay for Insano review! This was pretty cool and the review actually gave him a bit more character beyond just being insane. Though I guess you could say it also made him more like Spoony himself, =/ But I doubt that’s a bad thing! Great review and funny cameos!
Best video ever Noah! I full review with the good doctor? Excellent!
…Adam Savage ripped off f#$%ing Dungeonmaster!?
I think the fact that he even saw this movie and remember that line only certifies how much of a nerd he truly is. It like makes him more legit.
he’s in the special effects industry so maybe he worked on it or knew someone that did.
I’m certain I read a review of this somewhere before, but for the life of me can’t say where. Anyone care to help?
It was probably here, Spoony reviewed it when he was doing text review.
Wait a second… that was Richard Moll? No wonder he got his ass kicked! He’s clearly supposed to be Barbarian class!
ahh Alan Smity. The wonderful escape directors can use to hide form a project their ashamed of.
Like I always say; there are “bad” movies, and there are movies that are bad because they just don’t know what the hell they’re doing. This one seems to be edging towards the latter.
You seriously did an entire review as Dr. Insano? I’m sorry Noah, but that’s it. I’ve lost all hope in you. I would’ve honestly given this video a chance and enjoyed it if you didn’t do this. Your unnecessary plots intertwined with your reviews have taken a new form that has killed any form of comedy you may provide towards your fans.
Myself and a great deal of your fans don’t want to see any of these secondary characters with pointless plots in your reviews. Burton was acceptable because of how you used him and your original intentions before starting to create video reviews. Now it’s just gotten out of control and the people who are only allowed to speak about it in a completely positive fashion are the only voices heard. Seriously Noah you’re giving into the demands of the very people who have forced you to make yourself look like a complete fool. I honestly wouldn’t be giving into those fans when the exact same people who praise it make content like this: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FetishFuel/TheSpoonyExperiment
.. Wait, what?
Somehow, I don’t think you speak for ‘a great deal of [his] fans’..
so a review by insano is bad? really? sooo…. what do you want to see? because honestly, computer, lazer, ai, science, even if it was a normal spoony review, insano would have had a substantial roll, so whay not a full on insano review.
agreed I can’t even remember the last review of his I legitimately enjoyed.
And yet you’re still here. Why on Earth would you continue to watch something you no longer enjoy? Oh wait, it’s purely for the posing isn’t it? You can posture on the net and present yourself as someone who hates Spoony in order to stand out from the herd….is that it?
That strategy never works as all it does is make you look an idiot for continuing to watch someone you claim not to like, yet offering no constructive criticism for how he could fix what you see as wrong. I just don’t get people like you.
So he’s an idiot for being honest with himself and again proving my point how only people who don’t stay positive are drowned out from comments. I seriously doubt he hates Spoony and just hates a lot of his recent content.
I didn’t call him an idiot, I said he makes himself look an idiot by still watching content he gains no enjoyment from. He’s entitled not to like someone’s videos, but he offered no constructive criticism on where Spoony could improve or what exactly it is he doesn’t like.
its not your show. you dont speak for the fans. get your head out of your ass
It seems like Spoony is pulling a TGWTG here. Doug Walker (aka the Nostalgia Critic) has been experimenting with alternate characters, Lewis Lovhaug (aka Linkara) did a couple of full episodes with his side-characters (which were pretty poor imo) and I guess now Spoony is trying the same thing. While I don’t think this video was that bad, I see where you’re coming from. IMO the funniest reviews are those where the humor is kept subtle and relevant to the actual item that’s being reviewed and all these extras added to it more often than not come off as baggage and tend to be lame. Still, there does seem to be an audience for this kind of stuff and I prefer to ignore the lame attempts at humor and enjoy the reviews in spite of them. Like the Japanese say : ten men, ten tastes. Who are we to judge those who do think this video is funnier than the normal ones?!
Did everyone forget Ferris Bueller’s Day Off? This isn’t the first Insano Experiment review. It’s still Spoony doing the review, it’s just a slightly different “voice” both in terms of acting and in terms of where the jokes are coming from. Much of the “science” of the film fits better for Insano anyway.
I’ll agree that some may not like that side stories sometimes get in the “way” of reviews (either making the video longer, or making the review portion of the review shorter), but in this case, it’s mostly a full review that just happens to have a different host because of the story.
Its cute that you think you speak for all of us, dude. Really.
Oh no. He occasionally does reviews as his characters. Everything is ruined forever. What ever will we do now.
Oh yeah. We’ll get over it, and enjoy the entertainment he provides us for free. Myself and a great deal of his fans enjoy his secondary characters and their plots.
you don’t speak for me doucherod, tell you what, produce Spoony’s vids or pay a subscription fee then you can dictate what he does.
I actually like Dr Insano. He really amuses me with his antics.
Oh and as a fan, I want to see MORE of Spoony’s secondary characters.
Great. We appreciate your opinion. Now you can piss off. Seriously, if you dont like it, dont watch it. Are you paying subscription or something?
Oh hey it’s my old friend the flawed argument of, “If you don’t like it, then don’t watch it.”
I’m sure plenty of you must have heard this argument, and it usually happens because of one single reason. You have just criticized a reviewer and are hence labeled a troll. Well, don’t worry about it. This argument is as flawed as it can get since it’s used by trolls and fanboys alike to defend their comedic God.
There are mainly two problems with this sort of argument. One focusing mainly on the hypocrisy of it and the other twisting and twirling around it like mad vultures flying around a rotten animal carcass.
The first flaw is quite basic. It can be applied to anyone, anywhere, on the slightest flinch. This is the first sign of a dumb phrase. To put it simply if one tells you, “if you don’t like it, then don’t watch it” to a critical comment you wrote on somebody’s comments, then by only saying “if you don’t like my comment, then don’t read it”, it all pretty much falls to pieces right there.
This is where the whole thing falls apart in the bad antics display that always infect the fanboy hive mind, this phrase is always considered to be “the phrase” to be used if you want to sound smart, sassy, and just an overall master of comebacks…and it very well might be. Yet it isn’t due to the wrong concept and poor timing of it or the standard use by the TGWTG hive mind. It also comes down to whomever is using it is more than likely a dumb and silly little troll.
In short It really makes no sense to demand somebody who just watched something from this site (which is actually public for a reason) NOT to say anything bad about it and to DEMAND that they close the window and say nothing about it all. HOW IS THAT EVEN SUPPOSED TO WORK IN THE FIRST PLACE? These comments in the end aren’t there only to spew positive comments to whatever video there is since luckily for us, we’re not trapped in a world where everybody has the same taste. To demand not to say ANYTHING bad to ANYBODY is a human impossibility to the 9th degree, since, if such thing was even possible we wouldn’t have reviewers to begin with.
If criticism is what you’re watching, then criticism is what you’ll receive all the time, not praise. That’s how the real world works, and that’s how it will always work: “If I watch something something and don’t like it, I have all the reasons to point out why I didn’t like it.”
The standard trolls of the hive mind think of the argument as perfect and flawless, when they don’t see that their simple phrase can be used ad continuum thanks to the inherent flaw of it trying to be used to stop a comment which, in reality, is nothing more than a simple opinion piece, or a review even. that’s what brings us to the second and perhaps most hurtful flaw:
You’re using the argument to protect A REVIEWER from receiving negative comments when a reviewer actually watches stuff he doesn’t likes and rant about it endlessly to begin with (a.k.a: hypocrisy). This point is far easier to showcase due to the natural INABILITY of the whole thing and how absurd the argument gets when it goes full circle. You can boil it down to one single thing. Not everyone is going to like everything.
Criticism is one thing. Saying the entire video was bad just because Spoony wore glasses and a lab coat and acted like a character is another. All you did was bitch about how Spoony’s videos aren’t funny anymore because he uses characters and an occasional overaching plot. Way to stay open-minded, dude.
Hell I shouldn’t even have to say all of this because Dr. Insano alone is enough to show how bad and unnecessary he truly is to Noah’s videos.Outside of Noah playing a character that’s an direct copy of Dr. Sleepless most of the humor fell flat with the given material. Plus hearing him do that voice for such a long period of time gets rather annoying.
The worst thing about this is he can’t even stay in character and breaks it several times by talking as himself. He does that mainly for impersonations of other people in the film. It’s like Linkara when he did his character reviews, but then he quickly forgets that if you’re playing said character you have to do impersonations and monologues as if that individual character was a separate person from yourself. Not resort back to your normal mannerisms. Seriously it’s not that hard.
“Direct copy of Dr. Sleepless”. Oh yeah, before Dr. Sleepless, there was NO mad scientist character everywhere in the world! Wait…
Constructive criticism = okay. “He breaks character several times…do impersonations and monologues as if that individual character was a separate person from yourself” – this is constructive criticism. This works fine, and can help.
“Bad and unnecessary,” “annoying,” “not that hard” = subjective, one’s personal opinion and rather inflammatory. Not so much on the helpful side, and the negativity is likely to upset a fairly large number of people who may feel the opposite.
So basically: if you don’t like it, EITHER try giving *helpful, objective pointers for giving the skit* OR don’t watch it, or both. Coming in just to say it’s bad, annoying, useless – anyone can say that about you, or me, or anyone, and we’ll likely only feel defensive and disagree, yes? So try helpful comments if you catch something that’s not obvious.
All that being said, this review is ~20 minutes long, as you noted, and the Insano voice is (of course) not Spoony’s normal voice. Listen closely and just imagine what that would do to your throat, if you manipulated your voice to such a different level for a long period of time. It would hurt, or at least irritate your throat to the point where you’d need a lot of cold water to drink and a break from talking. Not surprising (to me at least) that he breaks out of that voice a few times, and I’m personally quite impressed that he kept it up for so long. My own throat hurts vaguely just at the idea of attempting this.
Oh nooo! Spoony is doing something different! The screen is showing people I don’t know, I’m scared :( My jelly sandwich fell jelly side UP! The world is coming to an end. The sun will rise in the North and dinosaurs will rule the Earth!
Apparently. Doing reviews for laughs on the internet is serious business.
I thought it was just about doing something fun.
It’s always fun to see the ‘true fans’ (those going this-suck-because-its-no-what-you-normally-do) get bitchy after a clip like this. I remember comments on Linkara’s stuff after he did the ‘linkara is missing’-storyline. So much hate from people. Or has anyone looked at Cinema Snob’s site? Good god. Every time someone from TGWTG get as much as a 5 second screentime it’s a madhouse there. Something is up when the commenters are worse snobs then the character Brad plays. Maybe I should put that ‘play’ in bold because the same type of people seem to think Cinema Snob really IS Brad.
When will people get this? (…well most people do actually)
Internet ‘reviewers’ exists mainly to have something fun to do FOR THEMSELFVES! Sure they may take into account the opinions of their viewers. But they should not be told by the viewers what to do. A reviewer should do what he thinks will be fun. That’s his job so to speak. The viewers didn’t pay him to write the ultimate funny internet review. Bluntly put: there is no contract that obligates him to do anything. If a viewer doesn’t like it, so be it. Different tastes and all.
If Spoony thinks it’s fun to play Insano, then let him. Don’t go all ‘I have lost all hope in you’
It’s just a character. It’s just a review. A comedic review at that.
This is entertainment. DON’T TAKE IT SO SERIOUSLY!!
ok. maybe I should tell you what I thought of this video:
It’s not bad. I like Insano. It’s good Spoony lowered his voice a bit. The shrieking Insano voice of the past would have destroyed his vocal cords otherwise.
I thought he already did a full review as Insano with Ferris Bueller, like 8 months ago?
This is only his 2nd review as Insano…what are you dribbling about man? I love how people like this confuse their own opinion for the opinions of a majority of the fanbase, really speaks to just how out of touch with the real world they truly are.
For the record, you support stagnation of concept and zero growth of a character or style yes? Gotcha, just to highlight just how easily your “opinions” can be ignored in future.
The secondary characters and plots intertwining with his reviews has been part of Noah’s act at least since he reviewed Final Fantasy 8. Where have you been that entire time? Dr.Insano is my favorite part of The Spoony Experiment and this movie is perfect for him. Like he said its about a guy blowing stuff up with vaguely defined and unexplained SCIENCE!
so, third ring…
Insano weilding a ring based on creativity and willpower.
It makes sense, but it could just be a throwaway.
ALL HAIL INSANO!!
(As long as he passes around any Suicide Girls he doesn’t want…)
Flashbang protection? No more shouting, YOU FOOL!!
YES!!! Guru Larry!!!! GL rules!!! “Dis Guy…is un FUCKING believeable!!” Good night and good gaming!
UGH a Family Guy joke at the end?! Aw man…. Oh well. Take your time finding Spoony. He’s great but I like Dr. Insano too.
spoony, i dont know if you hear this so clearly, but THANK YOU. the look on your face when he drops that mythbusters line made me laugh so hard, i had to pause the video for ten minutes to catch my breath and dry my eyes. i am genuinely thankful for the laughs!
Some of the riffs sound like Spoony is making them rather than Insano.
So does that mean that the good doctor actually found Spoony, and is keeping him chained up in his lab were he can perform horrible science experiments, FOR SCIENCE!
My guess? Insano hijacked one of Spoony’s reviews! :D
And who thought it was a great idea was it to give Dr. Insano a GREEN LANTERN RING?!
DC did, as you got one when you bought an issue of Blackest Night, last year’s big even series. Sadly, batteries were not included.
Insano for president, seriously I would vote for him….then again I’m demented and criminally insane :P
Seriously though great review, I’ve never heard of this movie until now, and yes I did like the family guy reference at the end.
Your kind of people would probably vote for an evil sorceress who just killed the president, wouldn’t you?
Wow… I never knew Adam Savage picked up his iconic line from such a horrible movie….
I’m just going to throw this out there. This film was not passed around from director to director as some people seem to think. The reason for 7 directors is that each challenge was treated as an individual segment and each of these segments was written and directed by a different person, which seems hard to believe given that they are all so similar. I’m not defending the film as it is indeed terrible, I’m just clarifying this point, even it the reason for it is still stupid.
Also, for any cinematic masochists who actually want to see this film and have a Netflix account, it is available on streaming currently. Seeing as it has never been released on DVD and I assume the VHS is rather obscure I’d guess that Netflix is about the only way you can see it right now.
So in other words this film is a awful rendition of “Four Rooms” but with less talent behind it and no Rodriguez or Tarantino in site?
The more you know
Well…. that Mythbusters thing blew my goddamn mind into pieces
I look foreword to Insaneo taking over the world. it will make things more awesome.
Also is it just me or was that Wolf from Star Fox 64?
Snoony, that was Albert Fish in the cave. A child rapist and serial killer. Not, in fact, Einstein.
Am I the only person that noticed that it looks like Noah has herpes?
Spoony, are you okay man? What did angry joe do to you in spooning with spoony part 2?
Look at his lip! WTF is that?
BTW, 7.6/10 Nothing tops your Reb Brown reviews
A cold sore or a zit…….nothing more complicated or gross than that.
Snoony, that was Albert Fish in the cave, an infamous child rapist and serial killer. It was not Albert Einstein.
Can I add your goggles on Facebook? xD
Tell me I’m not the only one who thinks that the villain here looks like General Katana from The Quickening.
I think if you’re going to do reviews as Dr. Insano, you should do a better job of establishing persona. I could feel way too much Spoony spilling through. Why would Insano be complaining about the main character using technology to his own means; surely he’d be in full support of that :P
The actual review is good, I just think you should have done a better job of being in character.
He does have a persona established. As for him not liking that “SCIENCE!” is used, he explains that you need some back story to establish it.
BUT.. I did notice him using his normal voice in it threw the review off a bit. It was pretty jarring. But I’m all in favor of more VLogs from Insano.
BTW, if the good doctor is listening in, I am still learning SCIENCE! to work on those cyborg fire apes, but the other Minion now is driving his mother crazy with the fact that he is your favorite minion. I’ve created a monster (and not one of those good ones that destroy cities or breathe fire or such).
That was Insano impersonating the guy in the film, not Spoony just slipping into his regular voice for no reason
Yeah. I know it was the “voice” of the guy in the film. But it was still very jarring. Personally, I would have preferred if he switched to another voice or had his brother voice the guy. Hearing his voice, even if he is MST3King it, is still a mental blow. :)
So is Insano really going to review FFX-2? He will probably hate it so much he brings Spoony back so he doesn’t have to lol.
Mazes and Monsters is a far out game.
But yes, I agree with the others, the video was entertaining and it was quality work , BUT, you definitely broke character a few times Noah. Still, good job overall.
Is this movie some sort of inside joke that I don’t understand? I mean, it has a surprising number of glowing reviews on IMDB, Adam Savage wears shirts with quotes from it.. what gives?
Yeah. I was wondering that myself.
Gwen! Paul! Gwen! Paul! Gwen! Paul! Janet! Brad! Rocky! Cabbot! Cabbot! Hey Cabbot! Cabbot! Chief! McCloud!
There, now the MST3K fans got a chuckle. And when it got to the stop motion Ray Harryhausen reject, it really looked like something that you’d normally only see with a row of theater seats in the foreground.
And the more I look at that Poster/Cover Art, the more I see Terry Gilliam smiling at me. I keep expecting it to go into Conrad Pooh’s Dancing Teeth!
I had to look this movie up from IMDB; and turns out the finnish translation to it means “Ransom of Satan”.
gotta say, i like this dr. insano/spoony hybrid better than the “evil” and dramatic dr. insano, this was pretty cool, its feels like a dr. insanos vlog or something like that…
This movie was BIJ.
I can’t even remember if I’ve seen this movie or not. It’s so familiar and yet not quite. It’s possible I blocked it out so well that even seeing won’t trigger a real memory of it. I’m not surprised at how screwed up the movie is though. I saw people involved in Full Moon Pictures in those credits. Oh, Charles Band, what would b-movie (and worse) watchers do without you?
Is it me, or did you slip out of your Dr. Insano voice. You’ve said before that doing the voice is a bit of a strain, so I was just wondering.
Is it me, or did you slip into your normal voice a few times. I know you’ve said previously that the Insano voice is a bit straining to do, so I was just wondering if was a goof or whether you’re planning something.
It’ll be interesting to see though.
He was impersonating the guy in the film, saying lines as if it was the character saying them…not a goof.
Paul is like the Warlock in my D&D (3.5) Group: Eldritch Blast, step back, Eldritch Blast, step back, Eldritch Blast, step back, …
Nice Review though.
Really like the review, the only complaint I can think of is the jokes done in the normal Spoony voice that seems i little bit out of place, otherwise good show!
I know W.A.S.P. is probably an acquired taste, but it is my favorite band EVAR. Blackie Lawless is the unsung hero of 80’s pop metal, and continues to release albums to this day. With Chris Holmes from Quiet Riot on lead guitar, the band’s sound was epic. They also appeared in a cameo on Terrorvision and did a music video and soundtrack song for Ghoulies 2 called “Scream Until You Like It”. Anyone who loves 80’s hair rock is required to listen to their first two albums, first self-titled and second “The Last Command,” as well as their fourth album “The Headless Children.”
The Power Glove, it’s so bad. Also, I love the ending with Bennett, since it reminds me of the ending of Buffy the Vampire Slayer film.
But, anyways, this movie was bad, and I’m sort of surprised it never made it to MST3K, because it’s more than bad enough to have been MST material.
I know what you mean, but it was a Family Guy reference.
Ah, that figures. I never get around to watching Family Guy. Still, hilarity all around. Except for the movie, which was horrible.
Wouldn’t X-Ray vision only allow to see skeletons?
Do you have a skeleton fetish?
Not that there is anything wrong with that.
you did a pretty good job on that video, dr. inaso! do you have a clue when spoony will be back though?
look, I just wanted to know…
Am I the only person that skimmed down the titles and thought this said “The Dungmaster?”
I swear I was like The Dungmaster? what the heck is Spoony reviewing now?
That angel… you see thought her clothes
that was the best part of the movie.
Speaking of horrid D&D movies, I’m currently watching Dungeons and Dragons 2, Wrath of the Dragon God. I haven’t been able to finish it in one stretch. Long, boring, the only entertaining part is watching Bruce Payne chew the scenery.
They try, they really try. The movie tries to at least stay true to the ideas of D&D. But the writing… it’s like they took a decent D&D session (hammy bad guy, fate of the world, party of adventurers sent by the King, etc), and padded it out.
Perhaps you can amuse yourself by looking for people making ridiculous faces in the background.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen the movie, but I remember thinking it was better than the original. But that’s probably only due to ‘boring’ being preferable to Marlon Wayans’ character (for instance).
Am I the only one that was BEGGING him to transist to Inuyasha and Kagome screaming eachother’s names? :(
great review spoo- er…insano.
i really like how far the character of insano has come. he can really hold his own now.
NOOOO! Insano has teh herp. :(
This Movie looks awesome! I need to find it. Was it ever released on DVD? Anywho, great as always Noah.
I fully support the kneecapping of The Sage. Not because I dislike him I just find it funny.
I was laughing my head off until Wasp showed up. Then I had to stop laughing because I couldn’t breath anymore.
How many drugs were involved in this production? Why was it made? What was the purpose of the entire thing? Why would the wizard indulge in a fist fight when he could set Paul’s narrow arse on fire? I bet that would be really entertaining.
Surely a wizard of this power could find better things to do with his time than torture some random dork and his bland only vaguely attractive girlfriend.
For example he could breed new forms of life. Burn the ancient forests of the world and then attack a bunch of sweaty horse obsessed blondes in their huge fortress with his army of hideous monstrosities.
And was I the only person who thought the Angel was kinda foxy?
It was kinda weird to hear Spoony’s voice over the actors instead of Insano’s pretending to be the actors. I think the first Insano review was overall better, but this was pretty good too.
Why does the doctor have herpes?
It’s from his old Spooning with Spoony days.
Which would probably be yesterday…
It was a cold sore, Mr. Hitler. Hell, I didn’t even think people would notice!
Now give us a kiss.
You mean to tell me there are 110 commenters that didn’t bring it up? A cold sore is kinda lame and here I was writing a Sage/Insano shipping fic. Now I will need a different flimsy justification to post this abomination. Oh well..
Come to think of it, why does me name show up as Hitler. It’s kind of lucky that this happens to the only German guy on the site…personally I think it’s awesome.
Because the name TommyWishow is apparently too offensive.
It’s okay, I’m just waiting for someone named Harry S. Truman to show up.
LOL ADOLF :D:D
he is alive
Nice Family Guy tribute at the end. :D
Why did Insano do this review? If this were a regular Spoony episode it would have been perfectly fine. With Insano its just… far less entertaining. I like Insano too – but he’s grating after twenty minutes. Insano is just speaking Spoony lines here, its all wrong! Not even close to being funny either… At least the Ferris Beuller review had Insano put an evil spin on things. A movie this insane had much better potential for a funny review – Spoony blew it here. (The text review is better, btw.)
The Family Guy joke at the end was just the shit icing on the shit cake for this one. Yeah, Family Guy reference WERE funny… in 7th Grade!
Wow; I remember picking up this movie many years ago but then putting it back on the rack because I had second thoughts about it. I am glad I listened to my inner movie critic. Dr Insano thank you for this well scienced review.
My favourite part was when Excalibr8 used his glasses to perform all these amazing things, yet Dr. Insano writes it all off with his superior versions (that can even go on Facebook!).
It’s funny how the glasses are NEVER mentioned throughout the rest of the film. I guess those 7 directors stood alone on their own ideas?
Good afternoon, Spoony and fellow Spooners.
If Spoony was implying that he’s going to review the D&D movie, I’m kind of torn on this. On the one hand, I’d love to see what he comes up with. On the other, he did such a great job riffing it several years ago that I’m not sure what the point of a review is.
Wow; Dr. Insano does a really good impersonation of Spoony’s mocking voice.
Lmao, I love how Spoony gets so into his Insano character that I begin to legitimately believe Spoony actually isn’t in the video. Hilarious as always.
Wasp fucking SHREDS!
“I reject your reality and substitute my own.” O.o
“A cassette tape full of lies!”
The world needs more Insano reviews. Also, the main character kind of reminds me of a 70’s version of Insano.
I’d totally buy that product.
Also the protagonist reminds me of the worst Virtual Adept ever.
Insano is a Green Lantern? I… I didn’t see that coming. Everything I knew about him is now rendered useless by this development!
Oh no this video was different!
It had faces that were not Spoony’s. Iam afraid.
That should not be. Please Spoony don’t change or evolve. Otherwise
I have to take big bad pills from the big evil men in scrubs again.
I really liked this review. I like Dr. Insano because I like the evil genius archetype.
And the cameos were short sweet and punchliney.
This is video is good example of how cameos should be done, so they
don’t overstay their welcome.
The review had a really good flow. I found it entertaining even though I am not
immersed the whole geek culture and D&D stuff.
Yeahhh, I rented this back in the day. Why would you make me suffer through it again? I closed that chapter of my life!
I’m still floored by the MythBusters connection. Maybe this is one of the movies Adam worked on in his SFX career. Frankly, he says it better.
” I reject your reality and substituted my own”
That’s what I will say the next time I’m reminded where that line came from first.
Nice review, great excerpts and WASP hell yes :D
Caught the Essential Harlan Ellison book you had. Nice.
Sadly, this movie does remind me of a particularly bad D&D campaign I was part of.
Yes, there was “technomancy”.
Yes, the whole plot was us having to complete several challenges issued by a power mad holographic wizard from the future to save a princess.
Yes, we even had to battle an infernal rock band.
God, that campaign was shit. It sounds fun, but the implementation was awful, the dialogue was head bangingly terrible, and the DM did not know how to improvise.
the good Doctor wasn’t mad about them using SCIENCE! he was peeved because there was SCIENCE in a movie he thought was going to be fantasy. The movie threw the nasty curve ball. That is what cheesed off Insano.
That was hilarious.
I still like this movie though =P
From what I remember you saying; Doctor Insano is a hard character for you to do. So nice Job Spoony.
To the guy wearing the Chris Hero shirt, thumbs up to you.
[[DUPLICATE POST. PLEASE DON’T HURT ME.]]
Hmm? I thought Christmas happened a few weeks back. But with an Insano review to watch, it looks like there are still presents! :D Great infomercial in the middle, too.
Yay! No crappy flash intro! Thank the gods!
WASP?! FUCK YEAH!!!
This was awesome! I never expected to see Dr Insano review another movie again. Glad I did because the character is fun to watch. It also makes me want to know whats going on with the Spoony story arc.
I think this is the longest I’ve ever seen Spoony’s hair, GET A HAIRCUT YOU HIPPY !! ! (of coarse I’m only kidding)
Why does the villain’s forehead have a vagina?
Great Family Guy reference at the end.
Did I hear someone mention Krull?
Because I think I heard someone mention Krull.
x-2 is not that bad if you pretend you are playing a great game. oh dnd wrath of the dragon king is best dnd movie out there right now.
You could use that argument for any game, doesn’t make it less frustrating when the cutscene fucking starts.
>The ending bit
Yyyyyyyeah. That wasn’t funny in Family Guy, and it’s still not funny now. Sorry man.
My Mestema made me play FFX-2 years ago… (shivers)…. I’m still recovering.
Please help me… with your Science, your “Magic Science”
I’m pretty sure I can see that “angel’s” nipples…
Too bad you didn’t review this off of Netflix (or probably DVD) because there are Dolomite level boom mics that you can’t really see on the VHS footage. One is so clear you could probably read its serial number and it definitely makes for a self destructive drinking game..
Holy crap is Richard Moll! I guess Mystima moonlights as a court baliff during the week, and voices a disfigured former district attorney every other month. Good for him.
PS: Is it just me or did the cover art for Mystima (or however u spell that douche nozzle’s name) using the likeness of Jack Nicholson in The Shining when he peeking his head through the door.
Damn, I’m duly impressed you managed to keep the insano voice going for so long!
So… my stupid moment for the day? When the voice over was done in normal Spoony voice my honest-to-God first thought was, “Wow! Doctor Insano does a great Spoony impression!”
That’s because the Insano Clone is a clone of the original Insano, who is Spoony.
Spoony really does do a good job with this character. Sometimes it’s hard to remember the fact that technically they are the same person! <3
what is that that he says at 19:05? sounds like “de nu mort”
Dénouement – the wrap-up after the final climax of the film.
ah, thank you
Okay, I guess that hypno-vision must have hit me, because I wouldn’t mind playing FF X-2 again, too bad I don’t have any capture equipment for PS2 games.
Also, I seem to remember a movie with two muscle-bound twins as truckers having a device to change traffic, but they only got it at the end of the movie, as their deadline for delivery was closing in and it was the only plot point left to deal with.
Doctor Insano Needs to to a review of Final Fantasy 7 Dirge of Cerberus. There is just so much Science!!! in that game, and none of it makes any sense.
Why does Dr insano remind me of Dr Hojo so damn much?
My immediate thought when I saw the laser glove was of Lucas saying “I love the Power Glove.It’s so bad.” I’m actually a little disappointed that it wasn’t in this video.
This was an awesome review. Honestly I think this was one of the best… probably just because of the sadistic nature of the Sage Shooting.
Yeah, I have issues. Still, great coverage of crap. This movie is just proving to me that you don’t need any talent to be a movie writer.
Also I saw the title card for this and thought I was looking at Arnold Schwarzenegger. Even watching the review it took me a moment to realize it was Bull.
Y’know, I’m going to confess something that probably won’t make me too popular. But I’ll do it anyway… I actually really enjoy Conan the Destroyer. Not because it’s a good movie! No. I acknowledge it sucks. But I find it to be stupid fun and consider it a guilty pleasure. And I especially like it because I’ve always considered it to be the REAL Dungeons & Dragons movie. And here’s where I geek like I’ve never geeked before. Because, think about it! You have a group of archetypal characters with their own traits and alignments… there’s the lawful good wizard, the chaotic neutral thief, the lawful evil warrior (probably an NPC), and so forth, all gathered together to go on a series of interlocking quests which require puzzle solving and teamwork to resolve. It plays out just like a standard campaign organized and played to fruition! You can just picture folks sitting around a table, the wizard guy rolling to see if his spell successfully detects a hidden passageway in the icy cavern. It’s got dungeons! It’s got dragons! Well, arguably. Point is, it comes about as close to being Dungeons & Dragons as a movie can come. And I stick by that assertion.
I’m not a huge fan of skits in reviews, like I really dislike a lot that I see on GTWTG.com, but I think Spoony does a good job, also I love Dr. Insano! I think its the laugh…. also you have pretty man hair.
Honestly, the only reason that Insano is angry about Excalibr8’s Laser Ex Machina computer is because his own attempts at solving every one of his problems with lasers has been less than satisfactory.
He seems to be pretty good at obliterating VHS tapes, however.
I *still* think one of the best appearances of Dr Insano was in the “Clones of Bruce Lee” review. Nothing quite like seeing Doctor Insano criticising other mad scientists…
Oh, Peter Griffin bit…
Raul Julia would totally interface his ass.
Apologies for the dupe. I can’t seem to edit it.
Your entertainment-bidding pleases Uber ^_^
Mind blown at the Mythbusters quote-theft!
Try new mango-lime Mystima, fresh from Excalibrate!
I can see why Insano was used since Spoony clone is teleported (good decision). But it seems like a deviation of his character. Insano seems too logical and consistent. Why would Insano complain about the lack of sanity in a movie? And he helps others, Insano does not help people. Insano should never be nice to anyone other than his son thing. I went into denial and rewinded that scene to see if I missed the part where he reveals at the end that all the medicine had heavy duty laxatives or poison in it. I do like that Insano gets his own episode, but it is overall, not consistent with his character and is at time far too similar to a normal (awesome) review, especially when the voice cracks to normal.
And now I am curious as to what happens to the Spoony Bum.
The Spoony Clone merged with the original Spoony during the teleportation. The one trapped in the Black Hole is the original Spoony.
I love how every time he fires Leela’s wrist thing he’s never consistent with how many times he pushes buttons.
We totally need more Insano reviews.
Seriously can’t wait for that X-2 review either. I hated that game so fucking much I didn’t even bother to beat it, I’d love to see you tear it a new one.
And now, for your viewing pleasure, the Deus Ex Machina Computer Series! No longer be troubled by impossible or badly written quests! No more need for a plot based on the hard work of the protagonist over a grueling Training From Hell or well-thought out but angsty journey! With the push of a button you can now overcome all obstacles at your own convenience! Worried about the new Big Bad? Turn him into a bannana! Concerned about your love interest repeatedly telling you that she’s married to your best friend? Now your best friend conveniently dies while cheating on her with another woman, driving her to you in a mixture of grief and anger, making sex so much more animated! Helpless in the face of a daunting quest that may result in your death and/or the death of everyone you love? Easily resolve it with a convenient but hard-to-explain genie that suddenly pops out of mid-air, giving you all protection and transport you need! For anyone questing character looking for a solution to a problem that is hard to overcome, difficult to resolve, or is just plain annoying, DEM’s Computer Series is the handheld device for you! (No refunds, exception from divine retribution, or returns (especially if said handheld tries to castrate, behead, or mutilate you in terrible and painful ways while you are unconscious), terms and conditions apply).
Ah, computers. They keep evolving in wonderful and seemingly magical ways, don’t they? But philosophical discussion on existentialism? THAT is something I can get behind: “I reject your reality and I substitute my own.” You see! I’m not crazy! When I told my psychiatrist that she suggested I voluntarily “have a rest in hospital for two weeks”, but I saw “Girl, Interrupted”! I’m hot spending two years in a mental institution with Angelina Jolie!
Dr Insano alluded to having a love life (when the guy insists he loves his girlfriend more than his computer and Dr Insano says he’s had this conversation before.).
This I want to see. I don’t want to see any shipping, I just want to see what Insano is like around women.
Wouldn’t surprise me at all if he was quite the seducer. You know what they say–once you go crazy, you never go back…
But the Clone Insano never went crazy. He was “born” that way.
“An athletic nerd!?”
…But… what about Vin Diesel? :D
This is clearly the Clone Insano, since the original Insano is trapped in the Black Hole (because the original Insano is Spoony).
Thus, the Clone Insano couldn’t have seen the VHS cover for “The Dungeonmaster” as a little kid since he never was a little kid!
Also, how can the Clone Insano know what the original Insano did in “Kickassia”?
Actually, clone Spoony is stuck in the Black Hole, as Black Lantern Spoony is actually the real one.
I’m amazed how many people keep track of this stuff :P.
“Clone Spoony” merged with the original Spoony during the teleportation.
And the teleportation sent the merged Spoony to the Black Hole.
Speaking of bad 80’s fantasy flicks, Spoony should cover The Sword & The Sorcerer sometime. One of the lesser known movies of the age that doesn’t get nearly enough attention.
Also, it would be nice to see his take on GOR, which is somewhat similar plotwise as The Dungeonmaster….
Wow, I wasn’t prepared to hear “I reject my reality and substitute my own” in this. I really hope Adam Savage didn’t get that line from this movie.
Insano in 2012!
IM A FIRING MY LAZER
Found myself trying to do the insano voice along with the review… This was fun.
Would you please do “Class of 1999″ someday?. If there ever was a movie made exclusively to be reviewed by doctor Insano is that one. Words fail me to describe that movie.
I enjoy Insano but this could’ve been a Spoony review. Spoony kept breaking character when he gets really worked up in a few parts. The voice kept changing. heh.
Insano seems to be having a herpes outbreak…
Yeah D: I hope he’s all right! (is/was/etc)
Hmm, well my guess is the mistema name is a play off of mastema, which is another name for satan, but maybe i’m giving this film too much credit.
this was a spoony review not an insano review.
… They’re the same person, Greg.
No, the original Insano is Spoony.
The Insano Clone, who is doing this review, is just a clone.
And clones are *never* exactly the same as the originals ;)
Really!!!! the same person i couldn’t tell!!!! My point is that he showed with ferris bueller its possible for insano to look at a movie from a different perspective and do jokes that wouldn’t fit in a normal review. Isn’t that the whole point of using a secondary character. This review was just spoony dressed as insano and ranting like spoony. I mean if you jsut want to see insano for some weird fan service then i guess it works but i would expect something different from the insano character.
this is defintely a spoony review as many of the rants would be exactly the same. If your going to do an insano review it would be more fun if he was really played up that way.
Spoony really needs a “Beyond Thunderdome” counter.
What was the song in the intro?
“Weird Science” by Oingo Boingo
WASP would be the best part of this movie. By far. WASP kicks ass
My god, I just watched this movie on Netflix two weeks ago. Sweet.
Actually, I’m surprised you went with the Commando reference. Captain Kirk had to do the same ‘lure-a-god-into-a-fistfight” bit in Squire of Gothos.
Hm… Commado, or Star Trek… which one is more awesome?
Awesome review Noah
Mkay, so to recap. His goggles do the following:
Shoot Death Ray
Has Telescopic Vision
It takes photos at a zillion megapixels
A terabyte of MP3 space
Opens his garage door, acts as universal remote for his TV
Hooked up to face book and twitter…
You know what I’m thinking?
I’m thinking Dr.Insano getting up from his couch as he ran out of snacks, pausing his DVD player, starting up his MP3 player, opening the garage door, using his X-ray vision combined with his night vision to look through the walls to detect any suspicious person passing by such as possible assassins and swat members sent in by the government, gets flash banged by one of the elite squad hiding right outside the door that leads to a hallway that leads to his garage but remains immune to it, zooms into the squad member’s face, takes a photo of him all the while utilizing his hypno-vision to keep him completely still and entranced and harmless as he shoots a Death-Ray beam into his face afterwards, repeats the process with each and every member, laughs maniacally as he casually walks to his car all the while twittering “Pwn’d some fools, look it up on Facebook”, while at the same time updating his facebook account to “Maniacally handsome and awesome” with pictures of each and everyone of the swat members faces of shock and horror as they were about to get death-rayed in the face with “To the mourning widows. That’ll teach ya! Mwahahahahaha!”.
Entering his car, starting it up, going through his garage door, leaving a smolthering smoking leftover of ashes from previously living swat members, closing his garage door and telling to himself “Huh… Maybe I should add a remote car starter to this blasted thing!”
yo umm insano when spooney gets back and does a blog i was wondering if he has sonic colors and if he could shed some light on it i want to know if it is really all that good
What the hell WASP wtf, I mean srsly.
Gotta love how the controller sage is holding isnt even plugged in. :P
So one of Adam Savage’s quotes comes from THIS movie? THIS PIECE OF… WHY? Whhhyyyyyyyyyyyy?
And why would he quote THAT? The science here is so bad it must have gotten burned on his brain
It amuses me how Dr. Insano wears a stethoscope, it seems they aren’t just for medical doctors anymore. Now those reclusive scientist/mad scientist types can look stylish too.
Man, after seeing this review I’d loved to see Doctor Insano review one of the Shin Megami Tensei game (the main series) or that really terrible Digital Devil Monogatari Megami Tensei anime. Because there is nothing better then when SCIENCE summons demons from the netherworld!
ha! adam savage lawl
So I watched this video, laughed my ass off, and immediately ordered the Doc Insano signed photo. And now I have it! =)
Is it just me or has anyone else notice that Mestema is played but Richard Moll you know the guy who played Bull on the TV series Night Court.
I totally noticed, and at the 17:34 mark on the video, you hear him sound like Two-Face from Batman the Animated Series.
OMG dude he totally does.
Oh my god, that Spinal Tap reference… win.
I am fond of Dr. Insano in a way that is not entirely healthy.
I know I’m behind but when (how?) did Dr. Insano get a Green Lantern ring????
I love how the ‘voice’ of the dude from the movie was Noah’s “normal” voice
And I approve of this method for getting game play footage from shitty games, Benet has 2 knees :D
anyone else see the part that should have had an “Inuyasha!!!…Kagomae!!!!!Inuyasha!!!…Kagomae!!!!!Inuyasha!!!…Kagomae!!!!!” sequence
I would have accepted ending that segmet with “Rocky!”
Oh my god,
did I just hear Oingo Boingo?
I love Spoony.
Am I the only one who thinks it’s kind of ironic that he hates Dungeon Master, but has a Dungeon Master poster in the background?
That is the whole point. It’s the irony of it that makes it funny. He hates Highlander 2, but has poster of that movie on his wall. If you watch his reviews he almost always has a poster of the movie he is reviewing on the wall behind him.
Ah. I see.
I’m kinda new to his reviews, so I wasn’t aware… but that’s pretty funny.
“Yes, Paul has a dragon summoning program loaded onto his computer.” An all powerful portable computer that allows you to fight monsters that are sent against you by a shadowy figure cloaked in religious connotations?
… has anyone else played Shin Megami Tensei’s Devil Survivor for the DS? Where you use a portable computer with a demon summoning program to summon demons and dragons to defeat the Devil, God, and the avatar of the internet?
There are some strange thematic similarities between this movie and that game. Of course, the game is insanely awesome and one of the most awesome things ever to grace the portable gaming spectrum while this movie is ALMOST as bad as the Twilight novels (which is really saying something, considering Stephanie Meyer, rapist of an entire literary genre, is going to rot in a very special portion of hell for the rest of eternity), but there are some bits and pieces here and there that make you think: “it’s almost like the writer of this movie travelled twenty years into the future, played the game, and then went back to the 1980s and ripped it off.” … Almost like retroactive copyright infringement…
Of course, I could be thinking this because I just got out of hospital (again) and am on a LOT of oral morphine.
In any case, this review is doing a lot for my pain management, so I must thank Noah Antwiler for putting together a brilliant vid. Honestly, this site and TGWTG.com have both kept me sane and kept my pharmacy costs at manageable levels.
Actually you may have a point.
The main villain of this film, Mestema? Mestema (or Mastema) is an alternate name for the Devil in Ge’ez (which is an Ethiopian dialect) . How’s that for a random reference?
So yeah, apparently the Prince of Darkness has a glass jaw.
I keep watching this review… must be the hypnovision from Dr. Insano’s goggles
and does anyone else here what sounds like the ST:TNG warm core sound (the clips of Mestima at about 8 minutes in)
The ice bomb is probably a reference to the book Ice-nine. A fictional novel in which Einstein invents a new compound called ice-9. The compound turns whatever it touches into ice-nine, which ends up ending the world.
You’re thinking of Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Cat’s Cradle and it wasn’t invented by Einstein, it was made by a man named Hoenikker.
It’s more likely (given the limited imaginations of the movie’s maker’s) that the crystal somehow refers to Einstein’s work on the actual atomic bomb and the destruction that came from it, a rather pathetic way to wedge some pointless political commentary into a corner somewhere in the film.
Now I know how I can get gameplay footage of a shitty game without having to play it myself: make Sage do it.
Bah! You call yourself insane? I’ll get you gameplay footage of Final Fantasy X-2. How? I’LL PLAY IT AND ENJOY IT! NYAHAHAHAHAAHAA! You’re out of your league Insano!
Why aren’t there more vids of Insano reviewing movies? This is flipping hilarious!
i agree why not more Insano thanks for pointing that out :)
I like how she looks down at his pelvis when she mentions how he and his computer “link up.”
lol i love dr Insano he is the man HE IS A MAN (lighting bolts coming out of his fingers)
This review doesn’t seem to be working correctly anymore, the frame rate drops a lot and the video plays really slowly while the audio is unaffected. Thought you would want to know.
Same here. Had no problem when it first came out but now it’s messed up.
the third crash scene is from a RTL show (upper left corner). Its a german television channel! ^^
This movie is more like Rifts than D&D
OMG, I just figured out what the wrist mounted thing is! It’s a Pip-Boy that can shoot lasers!
Spoony, I have no idea why, but this is one of my top favorite reviews that you’ve done. I’ve watched it at least 20+ times by now, but it makes me laugh my ass off every single time.
More Insano in the future~
Kinda losing the Insano voice at some points, but still awesome to see him review something again.
There should be more of these Insano reviews
And thus Spoke Dr. Insano, so Adam must of watched this movie and totally ripped off that line and put in Mythbusters…bastard
Well…Einstein DID figure out how to split atoms. If it weren’t for him, we wouldn’t have nuclear weapons.
Guess they may as well include Alfred Noble while they’re at it; he did invent dynamite, which the military used as a weapon. Kind of puts that whole peace prize thing into a weird light now, doesn’t it?
He only invented the Noble peace prize so people would remember him for that and not dynamite.
Yeah, ’cause the only possible use of atomic energy and dynamite are as weapons.
I love how your archnemesis meticulously keeps his hair styled like yours.
Dr. Insano should review the 80’s movie Wargames.
YES! AND THE SEQUEL! WITH BURTON! WE NEED BURTON!
Do you think the 80’s movie Flash Gordon will make a good Insano review?
Since the movie is cheesy & it bombed at the box office, there should be plenty to make fun of.
When he said “he transports him to a Wasp concert!”, for a second I just thought he was joking/exaggerating. The fact that he was actually telling the truth really says a lot about the quality of this film. By God, this is bad.
The concert scene inspired a wonderfully cheesey RPG session for me; For a Feng Shui game, I put the PC’s in the middle of an ultra violent, demon summoning heavy metal concert, and yes, the band was a parallel to W.A.S.P named V.I.P.E.R.
Actually, my high school’s AP Physics teacher rode his bike everywhere
Bicycles are still nerdy. Running is not.
His computer on his wrist sounds like the omni tool from Mass Effect
Well now we know where Bioware got the idea from. That or the wrist device from the Predator films.
They actualy got the omni tool from Final Fantasy the Spirits Within.
Dr. Insano reading Harlan Ellison? OH SHI-
oh my god! i can hear Spoony’s voice at 6:47. Dr. Insano does a spot-on impersonation.
Awesome review man!
The only two positive things about the Dungeonmaster are W.A.S.P and the fact that Richard Moll, aka Two-Face, is the only one trying to make this film work.
11:54 I love his expression! And yeah, mind also blown~
Now Dr. Insano realizes reviewing shitty movies and games is not as easy at it looks. Gotta say though, Dr. Insano’s rage was such a delight. Probably sadistic to mention but when Insano snapped I laughed so hard. Really great review!
I love me some Insano! I also love me some W.A.S.P.! Great combo there!
Oh no!!!! A sci fi fantasy that doesn’t make sense!!?!!??? This has never happened before!
An American who have seen a Danish movie (4:02)? Is… is this real life?
So, is Dr. Insano having a Green Lantern ring cannon? I’ve been trying to keep track of which of Spoony’s characters have which rings, but since this one just seems to be a one-off joke, i’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a part of that building story or not.
it’s just a joke,roll with it
Well an athletic nerd is Brian Kluwe, punter for the Minnesota Vikings. He has owns a Tyranid army and CRyx force
Anyone else have really bad jaggies on Spoony’s springboard videos?
Speaking of wrist-mounted computer thingies, if anyone reading this plays “SoulCalibur V” on the Xbox 360, I attempted to recreate Dr. Insano using Devil Jin’s style. The Power Glove on his right hand lets him unleash the Electric Wind Godfist, while the Bongseon Circlet upon his brow fires off lasers… with SCIENCE!!
(He’s even got the goggles with spiral pattern lenses)
“Mastema” (also rendered “Mastemah”) is Hebrew for “hatred” or “persecution”; in the Second Temple Period it was believed to be the name of a demon-prince who opposed the God of Israel and the Jews (most notably mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls!) — basically another name for Satan. It later came to be identified in Rabbinic Jewish folklore as the name of an angel who punished evildoers and tempted the faithful at God’s command.
Woooo! I’m finally justifying my PhD!
Seriously…This film spawned “I reject your reality…” You know what, I give up. This reality no longer makes sense so please, substitute it with your own as this one needs replacing.
The only good thing this piece of shit has to offer is WASP. FUCK YEAH!!
Still, I’d rather watch Labyrinth with David Bowie.
Edit: Oh, Angel boobs :)
I wonder if Spoony knows of the Dungeonmaster sequel that was made in 1988…
“I used be a reviewer. But then I took a bullet to the knee.”
No, Doctor #4 did it in the 70’s.
Oh so it’s originally from Doctor Who? Somehow it sounds like it originated from DW, I don’t know why.
I don’t know if it originated there, but that at least puts in many years earlier than this movie.
