    Psycho Goreman sounds like the R rated version of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy.

  • yodasama

    Just hit "The Room" part, and WOW. Stellar execution, guys... Bravo.

    I watched Psycho Goreman and Promising Young Woman and they were great!

    You randomly skipped above Love & Monsters, should give that a watch next time, it is great!

  • ThriftJunkGaming

    Promising young woman sounds like a perfect reset era fantasy.

  • Wayzor

    A random mode would be kinda cool.

  • RadioSpaceman

    The little girl in PG was pushing it it terms of being tolerant, for me. Just one scene of someone telling her to shut up and it'd be fine. Though she does make up with her brother, which was nice.


    Haven't seen Psycho Goreman but sounds alot like the cartoon The grim adventures of Billy and Mandy. Well at least the premise does.

    This episode had an ad for EA’s Star Wars Hero’s of the Galaxy... Im surprised they kept Gina Caranos character in it!

    I was thinking about tentacle people being created the other day, its weird to see the random idea was an episode of twilight zone season 2, would tentacles be superior to arms?

    I lost my shit at how long Jay was reading the back of Mac & Me.

  • TheGamerThing

    Please review new twilight zone

  • Zeriel

    Is there something wrong with my brain, I'm starting to think the writing in The Room is better than most modern movies

  • xXJayeDuBXx

    So I know nothing about Psycho Goreman, so the last clip shown mad me laugh my ass off pretty hard. I am sold on the fact that I have to watch this movie.

  • Katasunder

    I completely agree with Mike regarding Psycho Goreman as I am in the middle too. I was waiting for some kind of punishment or consequence for Mimi's actions, I get that would not be funny, but I hated the charachter so much by the end. They made her personality complete garbage, I was half expecting the movie to tell that she has some kind of mental problem. There are some jokes here and there that are good, but the actual awesomely executed parts were the practical effects(favourite was when PG eats bodies).

  • Woland94

    So they watched Black Widow, The War with Grandpa and Billy & Mandy: The Movie? Interesting, I do wonder why they always put different titles in the video title...

  • Brett Gwinn

    "Spring" and "The Endless" are great - so I guess I should see Synchronic

    Promising young woman was not a good movie. Decent ending, but the writing was subpar and I just could not root for the main character.

  • Pardon Tillinghast

    I think Mike is just jealous that rich was in a real movie

  • Thomas Mitrev

    I see why they don't review comedies often. When you picking apart jokes, the end point is simply "I didn't find that funny" vs "I find that funny." And that's hardly something that someone can relate to unless you know you share similar senses of humor.

    Was "Synchronic" partly based on that Louis C.K. bit about how it's not safe for black people to travel back in time?

    I saw the preview for Promising Young Woman, I went "Hell fucking no".

    Pandemic binge watching RLM makes one feel like a member of the cast; which is an example of the Full House Effect as described on FFF’s VCR Party Live!

  • Nullus

    Oh my Lord, that Twilight Zone clip... are you sure that wasn't a _Community_ deleted scene?

  • Jack-a-Lopium

    I watched The Editor and The Void from Astron-6... they're both great and both free on the Amazons Prime!

    The thing i like the most about Psycho Goreman is it’s an obvious homage to Gwar, in its tone, designs, and everything. It’s the closest we’ll get to a Gwar movie.

    I think Mike is a bit more critical towards Psycho Goreman because it seems like something he would have made himself. He knows exactly what he would have changed to make it perfect for his exact tastes.

    Mike Stoklasa: "I don't know if the thing that Bo Burnham did was really dumb and bad or absolutely genius. I have never watched any video of Bo Burnham in my life. What is a Bo Burnham?"

    I feel like Jay got promising young woman and Mike did not and they should have brought a woman on the show to talk about it

    • Mike B

      Yup - Mike was like 50/50 on whether or not all that stuff was intentional, and Jay was like "yes, very clearly, obviously intentional" - there were so many terrific intentional choices, right down the casting. They cast so many against type - all those "sweet nice boy" actors as creeps. Connie Britton, who normally plays strong supportive woman, cast as a sell out. Then the one truly redeemable male character is played usually villainous Clancy Brown. And the once-terrible but since redeemed character is played by freaking Doc Oc. And when it seemed to be heading into romcom territory, with each scene being more and more upbeat, one quick look at the watch told you all you needed to know - there was a lot of movie left. It intentionally telegraphed its final act. This movie is exceptionally well crafted is what I'm saying.

  • Volesprit

    Just seen Psycho Goreman! To me the little girl carried it all the way! I agree with Jay. However it was way too long, and I'm with Mike on some of the jokes that didn't land with me. Costumes were awesome!

  • NAP

    I thought the alien screaming “Oh my god!” was just a possible homage to Rich/RLM. Didn’t realize it actually was Rich. I agree with Mike 100% about PG though.

    Just saw Synchronic; whilst it’s not quite the ‘lightning in the bottle’ that was The Endless, it was still entertaining and made me eager for the next Benson and Moorhead effort.

    just wanted to comment on the off chance you folks see this: you are the Ebert and Roeper of this generation and I hope that in the next 5 years people fucking understand that. you. are. fuckin. awesome.

  • GavinGT

    What is the sound effect at 42:24 from? It's so familiar and it's driving me nuts.

  • ActionBastard

    Here's how you make synchronic better: the drug is advertised as being able to "unlock" your mind and let you revisit memories, but the twist at the end of the movie reveals the users have actually been traveling back in time.

  • Chill man, chill!

    I had to buy Psycho Goreman just because I love those types of movies and RICH EVANS HAD A PART?????

    Did you have to dub over "super bowl" with "big game" to avoid demonetization? IRbin is ridiculous.

    Its crazy there is so many people that look at relationships that way, its like some whiny "I dont want to work for anything in life, why can't things just be easy, wha wha" a shame.

    Synchronic reminds me of The Butterfly Effect, where it's just a bullshit reason to twist reality around.

    We dont care about the technology of sci fi - but we do care about the logic of its use. So flux capacitor, no one cares how it works, we do care how time travel logic is handled in use. Sci fi character development? NO. That is where all sci fi is going - I care not for character development. Look at The Expanse - they went full characters now. Terrible show. No sci fi at all, basically a soap opera, like Star Wars (no sci fi). I dont like the left guys take on this.

    the sister, and frankly the family, really bring down the movie. aside from just how obnoxious the sister is the family in general is ripe with woke subversions. goreman and the other costumed characters were so great though id recommend watching the movie on that alone just set your expectations accordingly.

    just finished watching psycho goreman. . . the mum and dad are such fantastic characters. the dash of power rangers theme music during the start and the obviously power rangers villians themed costumes were absolutely fantastic.

    Mike and Jay's 'ideas for how to make story plots better.' Sound more and more like the structure of Seinfeld episodes. I'm right there too, being raised by sit-coms we can't help it.
