episode temporarily unavailable? I tried yelling at it, I tried giving it the finger, nothing works...
Tried shooting at it?
Did you try spitting on it?
I tried quoting AVGN, but plagiarism proved uneffective.
Is that you?
Blip strikes again!
Wow! I have a similar poster in my bathroom. You might say it's IDENTICLE to yours, Mr. Snob. . . . .
After musical month, please review Heaven's Gate. Out of all the "What the FUCK Hollywood?" movies ever made. I would assume you'd have already reviewed this movie
Heaven's Gate isn't even that bad of a movie though...
The Forbidden Zone better be on the roster for musical month. it better beeeee!
I strongly agree.
I love that friggin movie.
I swear that landlady was Miriam Margoyles. Please, oh please don't say that was Miriam Margoyles....
Bad news, I'm afraid...
All kidding aside, finding this IMDB page led me to find out that the Production Company 'Black Castle' is making a movie based on 'Phantasmagoria'?! HOLY SHIT, I need to see this movie! I loved that game!
WHY, MIRIAM!?!! WHY!!!!!!
what the fuck did I just watch?
wow.. no Heavy Metal joke at the flying car and green globe?
Might have been too easy though...
Suddenly, the Sgt. Peppers movie looked like a masterpiece by comparison!
There's one 1994 joke you could've used for the episode in terms of the music from the movie! Ace of Base!
So BIM... like IBM... or maybe it's supposed to represent Apple computers? Like HAL from Space Odyssey?
Too much SYMBOLISM
grooviest Rapture movie ever.
I wonder if this would have been better if it was about the Crystal Gem Apple.
It would be even more of a mindfuck!
I wholely support exploding elephants.
Nice Angel Heart reference.
Funny...that "french" interviewer mentions Radio Monte-Carlo which is a real french radio station but his french is terrible...Booo, zero stars.
That landlady that gets her tits groped is Professor Sprout from Harry Potter.
I think you should do a review of the '70s musical remake of "Lost Horizon."
I've always wanted to see/hear what the original Hebrew version of this was like.
An HD setting? What sorcery is this?!
Also, that ending should have crossed over with "Teenage Tramp" since we need more hippies.
(Shout out to all the Live Nude Geeks fans.)
:( y u no ding for us snob
...What in the name of Jarid "Start Suckin'!" Christ did I just watch??
thanxs brad for posting this on my b-day i'm 36 today. and making me laugh when i needed it.
Happy Birthday! And as someone who's birthday is the same week as Christmas, I totally get why your birthday can be the worst day of the year. All I gotta say is 36 isn't old, and keep watching silly videos, you'll feel better soon.
It should have ended with Jews in Space,
And that La la la song stole the lyrics from Rosemary's Baby.
Aw, this episode had a sad ending. The only thing that keeps Brad's internet entertainer qualities from being perfect is the fact that he doesn't sing.
And now for something (almost) completely different: Can anybody tell me in which (probably Midnight Screenings) video Brad describes the poster for Temptation along the lines of "all red with just the outline of an apple, and I was like 'What the hell is THAT?!'"?
When are you reviewing Can't Stop The Music Brad?
HA!!! I knew you were going to put up "The Identical" poster up on that wall!!! :)
Okay, the ad that played for me was Step Up All In, so now I feel duty-bound to go back and watch the Brians' review of that before I can continue.
Again, tell me you're doing Shock Treatment!
sorry snob but really not a fan of these crappy musical reviews!
can;t wait till their done and back to the movie reviews!
These aren't musicals, these are musical movies.
These musical movies are pretty gay bro, moz needs his gory sleaze fix.
I wonder if this film was what the Dazzler film Marvel and Casablanca Records was planning on making in the late '70s-early '80s would've been like, or was probably tame in comparison.
I blocked this movie out of my memory, but it's all coming back to me.
"These people don't watch television...."
That's because they saw Reality TV in their future and did the only smart thing.... short of plucking out their eyeballs....
This was put out in the 80s? Seemed way to mid-70s based off of what you showed.
It is a movie that was dated when released trying to make a commentary about the future. Go figure.
The beginning seems pretty strong, but it falls off the rails hard. Off the top of my head, maybe the hippies could go on a journey to a specific place, instead of just lying around like bums.
Do Krush Groove!Do Krush Groove!Do Krush Groove!Do Krush Groove!Do Krush Groove!Do Krush Groove!Do Krush Groove!
No singing?! God dammit, I demand a refund!
Was that the dream car from the episode of the simpsons with homers brother I saw?
The horn better play La Cucaracha!
I really fucking hope you do ROB's Shock Treatment!
I will be so disappointed if the Snob doesn't sing in one of these. Even the Critic has dome some musical pieces.
The Critic may do musical bits; the Snob naked dances on his porch instead
What do you mean, "even the Critic"? Doug's voice is clearly trained and he doesn't shy away from flaunting it. Probably comes with growing up as the son of an opera singer.
Ain't it interesting that a movie that seems to be, at least in tone, incredibly anti-disco, but features a shitton of disco music front and center?
Also remember the tagline on the movie poster being "The Power of Rock in 1994". Apparently to Menaham Golan, Rock =/= sappy love ballads.
I can imagine Phelous hanging himself every time each song begins
That blonde guy just screams knock-off Roger Daltry.
Was that a Shock Treatment reference? And a complimentary one? Words can't express how happy that makes me! (Shock Treatment is one of my top ten favorite movies.)
You really really should do an entire musical episode of the Snob. Not about a musical necessarily, but with the Snob singing. That would be amazing.
Are you going to review Grease 2 or Staying Alive?
Still better than Grease tbh.
I've been listening to the soundtrack for this on youtube since the video went up. I'm a shell of my former self. All I can think is that I gotta trust the apple. I don't even like apples. Please, save yourselves.
THANK YOU, SNOBBY!!!!!
Been waiting for you to do this one for years!!!!!
Love your work!
A reference to Stargard? That’s why we love you, Brad!
I imagine you had requests for this one since Day One of your show. At least Catherine Mary Stewart and Miriam Margoyles escaped this fiasco (relatively) unscathed.
Except for “Speed” and that one song that is such a shameless note-for-note rip-off of Donna Summer’s “Wasted” that I’m surprised she didn’t sue their asses back to Biblical times, none of the songs are memorable. Well, maybe that one where the Paul Nicholas wannabee sings “Put on your apple pants and join me in the apple dance!” Or something like that. I may be mis-remembering the lyrics slightly, due to brain damage acquired during the viewing of this film.
Wow, this review was so good. This movie needed it.
I love that I got every single reference joke in this episode. I especially loved the Frasier theme song near the start. This is one of my favorite episodes from the "no more Great American Hero them" season.
What...the...fuck...The 70s was a fucked up decade of crazy movies.
Say what you will about the BIM Hour but it's the first thing that has gotten the kids to exercise for a hour everyday in years.
I liked you at one point but now your voice is getting kinda grating, could you speak in a more formal tone. Thanks in advance.
Hmm, first At Long Last Love, then The Apple...
Oh my glob, you're doing Xanadu next, aren't you?!
I hope you do! :D
Brad has said on twitter and a couple other times that he likes Xanadu. I think if he were to do it that it might be a mic drop sort of 'this movie doesn't deserve the shit it gets' ala Mommie Dearest.
Besides... Snapping fingers man... You heard em', I heard em'
AAAAAAAAAAH TOTALLY CALLED IT. Now to wash away the "wtf"...
You know, given how stupid this world is, I'm frankly surprised that this movie was never popular. Yech!
Also, lol. May the Messiah rest in peace.
However, I must give this movie credit, it does make me happy that they at least portrayed God as a man who drives a ghostly Rolls Royce Phantom.
Day man. uahaaAAAHHHaahAAHHH.
Fighter of the night man. uahaaAAAHHHaahAAHHH.
Champion of the sun. uahaaAAAHHHaahAAHHH.
Im the master of karate and friendship for everyone.
Fantastic episode! I just saw The Apple last weekend, and I found the soundtrack after searching a bit. Can you review Phantom of the Paradise sometime? It's one of my favorites.
Yes! Phantom of the Paradise is awesome.
Rock & Rule too, one of my favs. You should review it sometime Brad :)
Oh, yes, yes, yes, YES, I would love to see Brad review "Rock & Rule", too! :D That movie kicks so much bum, & I love it to pieces! ^_^
Hagan reviewed Rock and Rule.
Oh my god, you really did put up the " The Identical" poster. That alone makes this an A+ review
The 90s never looked so 70s before. ::Dazzle dazzle::
& is it just me, or does Landlord Mom look like Jontron with a fro?
Oh god, it's the spiritual successor to Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band!
It's weird, this movie had a bigger cultural impact than you think. There's quite a bit of the imagery in it (including that red shiny outfit) that were in Marilyn Manson's "Mechanical Animals". I mean, that thing is literally the outfit from The Dope Show, the one he wore onto Bill Maher's show at the time. Hell, that video even looks a bit like this film at times.
19:45- Says the man who shot and killed him during his Silent Night, Deadly Night review.
First of all, thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!!! In the years that I've been watching your show along with the many shows of the League of Super Critics and everyone else who is even remotely connected to it, I'd been waiting for either you or Nostalgia Critic or Nostalgia Chick or Todd in the Shadows or whomever to review this movie and put the silly commentary/review to it.
I first saw this on the "THIS" channel back in the summer of 2010 and my first reaction was a dropped jaw version of "Oh ... my ... GOD!!!!", to which my afficianado/connessieur of crappy movies grinned sinisterly while saying "I .. just ... Came!" I subsequently bought it.
I was, at first, surprised that during the scene at the penthouse toward the beginning, you didn't crack any kind of joke when Bibi looked down at the people from way up and said "I've never been so high in my life", but maybe the joke was too obvious.
By the way, am I the only one who finds it more than just a wee bit disturbing when two black characters in the movie smile while singing "He knows how to be a . . . MASTER!" ?
Hoping you and Jerrid and Sarah and Lloyd and everyone else are doing well and having a happy start to a new year, Chris.
I loved this episode when it was on youtube before it got taken
down due to copyright practices and now it is very hard to find
it to say the songs are very catchy to say the least including
how to be a master and this is foreshadowing America if Donald
Trump wins the election by controlling everyone but still my fave
episode though .
SMALES TV UK-HOST
sorry but I love over the top
Brad, any chance of getting this on YouTube anytime soon?
Since this is 1994, they're also supposed to talk in grunge speak.
Loved your stuff. Sorry, I'm not sure if you meant it as a joke or not, but the George Clinton you pictured as the composer for the soundtrack is the wrong one. It is actually George S. Clinton, who has done other soundtracks for other movies like Austin Powers.
Thanks for posting this.
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.
