SanityTopic says:

How can you say con air is a poor mans version of Air force 1, they are completely different. I will say that you are right about the las vegas strip landing scene.

cowsanonymous says:

Ted: Crude, perverse, and immature. It falls right into the niche created by South Park and Family Guy. It still does redeem itself by having some hilarious scenes, however. 7/10

Pineapple Joe says:

Eww. Speed was kinda lame. So was Con Air. But, True Lies? Fuck yeah. That’s a great flick. Arnold’s best.

Michael Medcalf says:

I thought Speed was the best action film ever when I saw it. On the subsequent rewatchable it became boring, because you knew that thrills were coming

Royal Crustle says:

Have you reviewed the Abuss? If not, I would like to see your opinnion. It’s EASILY in my top 10 favorites!

KittyKatSize says:

Big is one of those movies that i’ll watch when ever it’s on. Its the movie that got me into Tim Hangs and teaches my that i can still be a kid even after i grow up. I loved everything about this film and always root for the characters all the way from the beginning to the end. Truly a Classic and one of my all time Favs. 10/10

nonayabeesnas says:

Jon, I need to rephrase my review a bit…

Ted: Family Guy style comedy injected into a feature length film. I liked it. It’s quite funny and has a pretty good story line. However, the tangent it takes in the third act feels a bit out of place with the rest of the movie. 7/10 — wright96d

ali hussain says:

love con air and need to see speed and true lies

GoredonTheDestroyer says:

You don’t have to play them, you could just use footage from them.

Bobey29 says:

hey jon could you please do a review of the 1980s horror film: the shining?
and if you do you should to use the famous Jack Nicholson phrase from said movie: “HEEERE’S JOHNNY!”

Jogwheel says:

Pointing out “things you notice” is fine… but needlessly correcting me infers I’m a liar. I don’t like being called a liar.

SkinnyEnglishPerson says:


Polymath says:

TED – A Hilarious movie, with McFarlane stealing the show. My only gripes, it´s not original, it´s more like a 2-hour live action Family Guy episode, and the villain was out of place. Still a very funny movie. 8/10

P.S – You should´ve have reviewed The Lord of the Rings trilogy, now that The Hobbit is comming out

MegaMat says:

Awesome review man! I’ve been reviewing some flicks from the 90’s too.

Jogwheel says:

How could I review a game I haven’t played?

alby says:

oh no: youtube is changing the site again! It looks even worse.

GoredonTheDestroyer says:

Well, no, I ‘mean like with a Movie Night setup, like Movie Night, but with games.

Marcus Lind says:

Jon, you should start reviewing more than just Hollywood movies. Check out some Korean masterpieces such as:
– Memories of Murder (Tarantinos Favourite)
– I Saw the Devil
– Oldboy
– My Sassy Girl
– A Moment to Remember
– The Host

Jogwheel says:

Fair points, I suppose.

Krumbz. says:

hey metro red line

plastic14407 says:

He was referring to the accent.

Jogwheel says:

Wow, way to really play into that “brat” stereotype — here you go, whining like a butthurt loser.

And for the record, I’m happily married to a beautiful women. Thanks for being an asshole, though!

GoredonTheDestroyer says:

Oh, I didn’t think that through, but still, it would be entertaining, not that your entertaining, oh wait, you are.

GoredonTheDestroyer says:

Jon, you should do a Movie Night-esque special of Game Night and review Duke Nukem 3D, EarthBound and Ace Combat 4.

Jogwheel says:

Perhaps you’re right — but I would think simply advising them, “no you’re wrong, check again” would be enough. Apparently, people think I’m an idiot and a liar.

MrDevin1125 says:

You should totally review “Man on the Moon,” it’s my favorite movie and an incredible dramtic performance by Jim Carrey.

Jorge Andrade says:

I apologize Mr Paula, We have been taught in school here in Mexico, that calling people by the first letter of their name is a friendly way to address them.

RVX C says:

Ted: Hilarious in many rights but it’s not even close to Family Guy’s humor 5/10
Big: One of Tom Hanks signature roles, heartwarming story, and very original 7/10

pineapplesand556ers says:

I’ve fapped to Jamie Lee Curtis’ striptease scene at least 10 times.

Joao Pires says:

Well, if I am honest, you may sometimes let out a stuck up nose type of atitude, that is, at least to those who haven’t followed you for enough time, thankfully I am one of those who’ve been arround for a while and know you arennt like that. Others may not see it like that though. regardless, better to feed their ignorance if its too much of a bother otherwise.

RobinsTaste says:

True Lies: A very amuzing and surpringly good actionflick with comic twists and terrefic acting, even by Arnold. One of his bests films.

AsthmaticTv says:

One does not simply review 90’s action movies without terminator 2

WatchThisReview says:

Wasn’t aware there was an “American accent”.

RVX C says:

I agree. Kick Ass 2 is in Post production. lookin forward to it.

heyyitsjlu says:

Nicholas cage kick ass was awesome

Jogwheel says:

Already did 12 hours worth of Earthbound videos… I’m good for now.

Jogwheel says:

Well, I already did.

Jogwheel says:

I’ve reviewed “Return Of The King” before. Not sure I feel like getting into a whole thing for the rest of the trilogy, but I will be reviewing The Hobbit.

Jogwheel says:

I could, but I simply don’t have time to play, let alone review, that many games. Maybe someday.

Gavlon says:

wow you called me a brat you fucktard i bet you couldn’t do any better than planet of the apes and the way i know is because your videos suck dick hope you never get laid you virgin

Jogwheel says:

Haha, of course there is.

avw94 says:

Ted: Vulgar and crude, but gut-bustingly hilarious surprisingly heartwarming, Ted is one of the most creative and well-made comedies in recent memory. 8/10

Big: Tom Hanks is endearing, heartfelt, and funny. The film has a wide, child-like wonder that makes any adult wish they could be a kid again. 9/10
