And this is why I married you! Your review is great: thorough, professional and funny. Great job! Can't wait to see more vids on THITPC.

ummmm, yea, and, more coffee in my cup. oh, saliva on my shirt. aliens in my gut. joan rivers in my gallbladder. ummmm...... speechless. i will walk away and come back.

. . . . .

yes, sir, i have experienced something otherly worldly here. great job. great freakin' job. i loved this. this is indeed why janna married you. i've seen a lot of video reviews on youtube and you beat them all into the twitter-dust. i'm sending this out to the masses.

good call on nick cage as the patron saint of our site. i was glad to hear you say RAISIN' ARIZONA is one of his high points. i think it's his best. however, my wife will take issue with you casting down the FACEOFF. we own it. she loves it. she especially loves the john travolta in it, though i think her crush loyalty belong to nick cage. well, second to ed norton, who is second to eddie vedder. i mean, who can blame her? i'm silly enough to drool over christian bale - shirt on or off.

do more of these, please.

PLEASE do more of these. I wish technologically savvy enough to do this.

First, I wish this media were used prior to the Hamster shaving the hamster off of his face.

Second, I hate Nick Cage. And when I say hate, I mean dispise. I enjoy him in movies where he is a complete goof-ball or entirely too quirky, but then I remember Con Air and I hate him again. He is almost loathesome.

John, your ending was brilliant, and you were able to pull it off on a much smaller budget (hopefully).

I'd like to see more of these and I'd like to see them under the 5 minute threshold because I have the attention span of a gnat or a Hope Watermelon, take your pick.

Finally, I hope to meet you one day. I think you are visionary and I hear good things about you from others.

P.s. If I had ever written the word verification word while in grammar school, I would have certainly been expelled.

Seth said...

In addition, I cannot spell. Sorry to disapernt you all.

the hamster said...

i think it was racist of seth to single out hope watermelons for their low attention spans, even though we know the low rents from that place can't make it to their own last name before forgetting themselves.

John Barber said...

I totally agree about the 5 minute threshold, Seth. I tried, seriously, I did. Problem is, I can't give you name, rank, & serial number in under five minutes, much less a whole review...

Felix said...

I think you're good man. I love the nick cage, and because I love him I can turn away from flicks like Con-Air. I don't really appreciate the Faceoff put down, but I can turn away from that as well. You never mentioned Moonstruck with Cher?

The review was solid. Of course try not to say "um", and under 5 minutes is a good suggestion. Strong ending! It's may favorite part and it will make up for any weaknesses along the way. Which is mainly why I won't see this movie. I hate bad endings, especially the "it was aliens :-o!" and the "ooooohhh, it was all a dream" endings.

I look forward to more.

John Barber said...

Great comments, Felix. Definitely, the ums are out of control...

As for the Face/Off comment, did you actually see that movie? It's about two guys that SWITCH FACES. Come on. And I've never seen Moonstruck. Although I would like to see John Travolta and Cher switch faces. That I'd pay to see.

Phil Breedlove said...

I had to stop my viewing since I haven't seen the movie yet, but so far the editing on this review is pretty tight. Nice work!

myleswerntz said...

I have to differ here: I thought FACE/OFF was a nice flick. Sure, it's cheeseball, but you have Cage and Travolta (two of the cheeseball kings) in one picture together. It's like putting Battlefield Earth with Knowing: the ultimate film taste meltdown!

PURE AWESOME

the hamster said...

i am way digging the werntzian sentiment here. the travolta/cage union is precisely why we each also should own and hail LICENSE TO DRIVE as highly esteemed as THE LOST BOYS. nothing says late-80s culture crisis like the haim/feldman combo. and shall we even begin to mention the glory of TWINS?

yes, the werntz makes astuteness look like "no shit."

the hamster said...

by the way, john, 30 people have watched your video on vimeo. very nice.

John Barber said...

Wow. That's like 27 more people than I thought would. I mean, you and Myles and Janna are contractually obligated. I figured that would be it.

John Barber said...

And it's up to 32 now. Suck on that.
