C"mON BLIP, I gotta see this! lol
yes it's finally starting! lol
..oh you poor, poor man.
i've be waiting all day for this vid and this is what i find.... sad
Believe it or not, Mr. Plinkett loves this movie.
Is it just me or will Blip not load the video?
Same. so many comments on a video thats not even playable
Seriously, Blip, you need to get your shit together!
The Harry Plinkett character at redlettermedia mentioned this movie during his "Titanic" episode. Now I get to see what it's about!
My god. Now I see why Blip wouldn't show this video when it was first published. It's because the movie could make the happiest man in the world attempt suicide.
Hey, the Snob snobs a film I've actually seen. When I was a kid.
This is a special moment.
Kudos Brad, I'm really enjoying Sasquatch Week so far.
That was HILARIOUS! Oh, the angrier the Snob gets, the funnier the video is. My sympathies for you having to watch that steaming pile of inanity, Brad. I loved the thumb's up at the end. This whole episode cracked me the hell up!
Christ on a bicycle, it's the grandfather of Munchie! Someone kill it before it breeds one of many goofy fucking children's movies starring Dom DeLuise!
Congratulations Wil Wheaton, you are no longer the most annoying Wesley in fiction!
Holy fuck this movie...
LOL! I was hoping there would be a Wesley Crusher reference in the comments. SOOOO true!
Himalayas... Top of the World...
Does the mean that the family climbed Mount Everest, to return the Yeti?
Holy shit, the mother is Helen Hannah from the Apocalypse movies!
I'm truly glad I didn't see this movie as a kid. If I had I fear I would've grown up to be a creepy, obsessive, hairy-idol worshipping weirdo.
On that note here's the Sasquatch Week entry from the blog I run about a bearded man I've never even met:
I think there is a movie that has finally drove Mr Snob Over the Edge :)
You forgot Andy Warhol can use Nowhere to Run.
Aww, I wanted to hear some background on this horrific movie.
Whose idea was it to give the Yeti a tail that makes him look like a giant rat?
This kind of movie makes me glad that I was a kid during the '80s. The worst we got was Mac & Me and that still looks better than To Catch a Yeti.
I wonder if Roddy Piper was busy and that's why the producers had to cast Meatloaf in this movie?
I'm sorry Brad, but Meatloaf's sidekick looks like you if you were to cosplay as Silent Bob.
you guys also got Howard the Duck (1986) and Nukie (1988), don't forget.
Not sure what was more annoying in that review
That fucking kid wesley or fucking Blip
Though even though the streaming has been so bad the actual review was hilarious keep it up brad.
Maybe I don't want my children to talk t me
Seriously, I would rather hear Meat Loaf's version of It's All Coming Back To Me Now on a continuous loop than watch that whole movie!
Any video that starts off with the Snob unable to speak for a few seconds is going to be great.
Hi Brad, just wanted to say thank you for making these Snob episodes and for all the work you put into these videos. Sorry you had to endure such a film this week.
PS: Holy crap, Commissioner Gordon is in this film?!
...like the Sumerian Rat-Monkey from Dead Alive fucked a Furby. Yep. You nailed it.
And then the Noid said, "Did somebody order a pizza?".
Easily one of the best episodes in a while. I laughed at every joke, every reference, and The Snob felt more like a character seperate from Brad then he has in a while.
Unless of course, Brad IS pro snuff film.
Sorry you had to watch this Brad, but we love you. (Not in a creepy way... unless, you're into that.....
Read the description and Im already lmao
Rmember, Snob: you can't spell laughter without "slaughter". The pain is only going to fuel more
Are you ever going to clean up that body? I am pretty sure the stench will get worse with time.
The Rotten Tomatoes reviews of this are great too:
"With great puppets and the legendary Meatloaf how could you go wrong?"
"Hey....It was the 90's.."
I think I've seen this one at least once. ... The things you sit through for us...
Happy Hump Day!
Only if I can wish you a happy "Shut the Fuck Up" day.
JOHN KENNEDY. YOU´R ALIVE.
My God! I cannot remember when exactly, but I did see this as a kid. Meat Loaf (kind of) deserved better.
One of your best in a while, Snob. Thank you for suffering for our entertainment!
Well the only good thing I can say about this movie is that stuff at least happens. But the problem is that its fucking annoying and stupid as hell. And at least the most annoying character was acknowledged as boring and suffered and pain and slow death. You know for kids!
Sorry I meant to say "...annoying and suffered a painful and slow death." This movie was so bad it affected my brain ability to write properly :P
Dearest cinema snob,
Please more yeti feet, how about a yeti feet roll, it's not like I sexually attract to them, just for fun, hahaha, lol
- Quentin T.
French canadian here, I definitively saw the french dub, a few time, on TV, on either tqs or tva. So that movie, at some point, was deemed good enough for a dubbing
Very funny epsiode!
Now I am going to legally change my name to "Hank" and have everyone shout it out in anger.
Spec Ops: The Line has a particularly great use of Nowhere To Run when one of the bad guys, the Radioman, plays it over the speakers to taunt you, the player.
Then again, every single piece of licensed music in Spec Ops: The Line is used to taunt you, the player.
Then again, Spec Ops: The Line's sole reason for being is to taunt you, the player.
Said taunting is done in a poetic, elegant, horrific manner.
You'll never want to play a Shooter of any kind again after playing Spec Ops: The Line.
Really, Brad, this is the second worst movie that you've seen? Sure, the script was so convenient as to almost eliminate conflict, the characters were utter morons, and they made the annoying character too annoying. It still had one good actor playing his character in a genuinely fun way and is technically competent which together puts it above half the movies that you've reviewed.
Do you really think that Oversexed Rugsuckers from Mars, Porno Holocaust, Black Devil Doll from Hell, Crazy Fat Ethel 2, "Brazilian Star Wars," and Night of Horror are better movies than To Catch a Yeti?
To me, To Catch a Yeti just seems like a garden variety bad film and not one deserving of a chair at film's nadir. This movie is not disgustingly offensive, not half stock footage, not boring enough to put you to sleep, and not unwatchable. This is the kind of movie that you watch once and go "huh, that was stupid" and then you never think about it again.
Brad, if you're reading this, can you please tell me why this movie pissed you off so much? I really can't see how you would look at this and Night of Horror and say to yourself: "yep, I'd rater watch Night of Horror than To Catch a Yeti."
Well you have to remember that The Snobs opinion doesn't always mirror Brads (although in this instance it does seem evident that he REALLY hated this movie).
That aside, films are so subjective that it's impossible to make judgements as to what movie someone else should think is worse than another. Night of Horror might be coma-inducingly monotonous but it may be that it isn't anywhere near as actively infuriating as something like Nukie or To Catch a Yeti. I've seen plenty of movies much more boring than something like Pearl Harbour or Mindhunters but the latter movies stick out in my mind as being much, much worse because I actually got angry while watching them. I fucking hated them. Also I'd hazard a guess that some of the other movies you listed might appeal to Brad's predilection for extremely low budget obscure trash cinema, I could imagine having way more fun watching a cheap rip-off like Brazilian Star Wars than To Catch a Yeti.
I think it really comes down to how insulting you feel a movie is rather than how boring/poorly made/unoriginal it is.
Yeah, it is one of the worst movies I've sat through. Remember, you're just watching less than 20 minutes worth of clips, I've seen all 90 minutes of this thing. On a technical aspect, it's not one of the most poorly made films I've watched, but in terms of sheer annoyance, screenwriting, and editing, this was unbearable to watch. This is one of the most annoying movies I've ever seen, and I'd rather be watchign something that's half stock footage, boring, or nonsensical than watch something that pisses me off. There's not much that's worse than a truly unfunny comedy.
But my word isn't the final word, you're allowed to have a different opinion than me. Different people have different opinions on movies all the time, you shouldn't seem so shocked that you disagree with someone =) Though I would advise that you see the whole movie first before you write off my opinion just because of a handful of clips you saw.
This makes sense, thank you for explaining. How you break up the movie clips in your review with witty commentary makes it such that annoyingness (annoyment? there really ought to be a word that is a good opposite of enjoyment) doesn't build up as it would when sitting through it.
I didn't mean to come off as shocked but it so happens that nothing bothers me more than something that I don't understand. So, thank you for illuminating me.
I still maintain that a film with one genuinely good actor playing an entertaining character does not belong quite at the bottom of the barrel but I now understand how you think that a film could.
Just saying its the funniest of the reviews so far this week. Oh my i couldn't stop laughing.
Brad, I really must say that this does, in fact, look like the worst film you've ever reviewed on this site. I mean, Good Lord, it looks bad. There are obviously films which seem technically more poorly made than this one (like, say, "Weasels Rip My Flesh" or "Manos: The Hands of Fate"), but those are amateur-level films. When you have someone like Meatloaf in the cast, you expect a certain level of technical proficiency, of which this film seems to have absolutely NONE of. It looks extremely poor even for a made-for-TV movie. There are, for example, several grammatically-incorrect opening credits ("Written by and Original Screenplay: Paul Adam") that look like they were done on a VHS title editor from the late 1980's, obvious bloopers and outtakes used in the final film ("man eating monsters that prowl the Himalayas? They don't exist. But a yeti...a yeti exist"), extremely hammy acting from everyone except Meatloaf; the kid Wesley has to give the single worst performance by any child actor ever. As we all know, a bad sci-fi or horror movie can be so-bad-it's good, but when it comes to extremely bad comedies or family films, they're usually just BAD, as in painful to sit through.
Dead Alive, isn't that what Yanks call Braindead?
Incidentally, when are you going to do Peter Jackson week? Braindead, Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles, Heavenly Creatures, there's plenty to work with.
This movie still seems better than "Yeti: a gay love story." Yeah such shit exists.
I don't know, this movie looks kind of fun in a stupid fun way, and from what I've seen, Big Jake Grizzly needs his own movie!
"Meat Loaf is too good of a dish for this movie."
In every single context of the words, I never thought I'd see the day where this sentence was uttered. Not that Meat Loaf is a bad actor; I just never thought EVERYONE else was even worse.
Wait - is does Brad saying he's just discovered this movie mean he doesn't go to B-Fest? Because Redlettermedia did an episode on the 2012 B-Fest where this piece of shit was apparently the "star" of the show.
Brad being from Illinois and specializing in shitty movies, I always thought him being a B-Fest regular was a given.
Dearest Cinema Snob
I'm not sure if you're already aware, but there is a slight difference between Sasquatch and Yeti. While both are from the same family, Sasquatch is brown and from wooded areas, while Yetis are white and come from a more snowy winter like setting. And the Yeti are also known for their thick Chinese accent.
Why wasn't this porn? Jesus fucking christ, why couldn't this be porn?
Wesley: "You're working for my father! You do as I say!"
Captain Picard: "Shut up wesley!"
Now all we need is the Sasquatch equivalent of Homoti and this week will be complete! HAHAHAHAHAHHA
The yeti is going to molest something, isn't he?
I've gotta use that "Why are you still a thing that exists on this planet" line the next time someone really annoys me.
One of the very worst movies presented here?! I can't wait to see what this is about!
Huh. Brad, if you're ever planning on reviewing a German made-for-TV family flick: DON'T. They are basically "To Catch A Yeti" with less Meat Loaf, less implied murder, less creativity, more whacky hijinks, more songs you've already heard thousands of times on the radio, and a lot more filler because if they spent money to play those radio songs, they might as well play them in their entirey at full volume.
Hank looks like what would happen if Jar-Jar and Yoda got drunk and had a child.
Now it makes sense why Mr.Plinkett loved this movie so much
There is one thing that could make it worse. CGI. If they made it now that thing would be horrible CGI that no one would be talented enough to interact with.
It's a Sumatran Rat-Monkey in Braindead..
I am with the Snob. It was so pleasing to see that bratty kid get abused and left on the side of the road in a snow bank.
Pretty sure the Himalayas don't have pine trees or that New York City is that sparse.
It's almost like they didn't actually shoot the movie there!
Everyone who watched this video owes Brad a beer. And not like a can of Pabst, but like an actual beer, like the kind of local craft beer that is only made in this one brewery in Denver or something.
Hey, it's Trick from Lost Girl.
So the plot of this movie is the subplot of Ted...right down to the kid getting knocked out.
Wesley has to be one of the most annoying children in the history of fiction.
In my book, he's not as bad as Simba... but he's up there.
damnit! now i want an gif of meat loaf throwing that kid across the room.
SHUT UP, WESLEY![/picard]
Harry and the extraterrestrial Hendersons?
I'd like to see the kid from this movie left alone in a room with the kid from "Return to sleepaway camp". Hopefully they'll destroy each other so we don't have to see them again!
Hilarious review btw. One of my faves.
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
