Pluto Nash

(257 votes, average 4.35 out of 5)
A Quick Note from Film Brain: "This episode has had such a troubled history that one could write a book on the subject. To have even got this far shows the determination of everyone working on the Bad Movie Beatdown team. As this is a first episode, it is quite rough around the edges: it has been edited furiously and some of the footage had to be re-shot, which explains the occasional inconsistency. But I hope that doesn't get in the way of the laughs and I can assure a far more technically consistent Bad Movie Beatdown is on its way, sooner than you think. Enjoy!"

    Good review but you need a better cameraman. For some strange reason he couldn't keep it still.

    Looking forward for the next one.

    What are you talking about? Equilibrium was awesome! ULTRA VIOLET, now THERE was a bad movie! OH yeah I watched it because I love Milla Jovovich but it was baaaaad!
  • xexyzl
    HAHAHA, sorry, I still can't get over the Transformers poster staring at me this whole review. Why not do that instead of a good movie like Equilibrium?

    Well, then you need to recheck you calculations. Just kidding....

    To me Equlibrium and bad movie just doesn't sound right together but whatever.

    I liked Equilibrum too but it's his show so it's his choice not everybody likes the movie.

    I liked the movie, but you have to admit it is not a good film, just a fun romp to watch.

    Okay, you're gonna hate me, but I liked Pluto Nash. It was stupid, but to me, it was the fun kind of stupid. Still, I loved your review. And you're totally right about the corny jokes. Can't wait to see more of your reviews!

    Well, the original intention was to have it as shakycam to try and give the shows a rougher feel and seperate outselves from Nostalgia Critic. Unfortunately, it went a little bit too far. The re-shoots are partially for shots that were just a bit too [b]Cloverfield[/b].

    Good to hear you enjoyed the review, guys. :)

    I still remember those hours wasted on that movie...and the main villain was a fucking clone. Good god I have an extreme HATRED for this movie, it wasn't even funny. I loved the review, looking forward to the next review of Equilibrium, sadly I have that movie.

    :0 D'oh!

    Sorry 'bout that. A friend of mine and I were talking about the movie, and he had it confused with Meteor Man. I corrected him, but still got it messed up when I did my comment. I feel like such a moron. Oh, well... I fixed the comment anyway. Thanks for the heads up. And I did like Pluto Nash, btw.

    See. Now didn't I tell you things would all work out? I've deleted my what? 8 copies of this episode. I've seen it come so far and you've got it up.

    I think I've memorized the whole ep, too. I was glad to help with the vid in any way I can. Still, this was good for the first episode. I can't wait for the next one. Thanks again for the shout-out!

    Good work, FB. If you ever need help again, count me in!

    Haha great review. Loved the See!? No sound in space bit. There was a good reason for the clone though, and that was...
  • Welshy
    avatar
    Well worth the wait. Great start to the series Mat.
  • BlueGoldBizarros  - I LOE the spinning icon at the end
    avatar
    Maybe Nostalgia Critic should use that icon at the end of his videos.

    My only problem with the video is the sound, but since Benzai, Linkara, and Phelous had problems with their sound when they started, I won't hold anything against you.

    Can't wait for more.

    Nice review, pretty lousy movie. Oe of those comedies where it seems like they forgot to put in the jokes.

    The "getting punched in the face" line really cracks me up for some reason :D

    Hey, great to see a video of yours, after your articles! Looking forward to seeing what you do next. (Also, hello to a fellow Brit on this site once again. ^^ Nice to hear a familiar accent, heh.)
  • Sheranda
    avatar
    So, he really is British?! Wow. For some reason, I was skeptical about his accent. To me, it sounded fake. I don't know what's wrong with me. I guess it just doesn't sound like the British accents I've heard.

    By the way, CeliaKoda, if you like video games, I recommend you check out Ashens' reviews. He's also British and very funny.
  • Chechi25

    Loved the "no sound in space joke" but imo you should work on your fake laugh it isn't funny at least for me is irritating and the sex joke killed it for me. I would critique on the shaky camera but you stated before that this is an old video so I won't get into that.
  • Dohguy
    avatar
    yeah, try an over exaggerated one or a very unenthusiastic "ha!"
  • goldman
    liked the review, though your voice remind me of ashen's

    anyway, 1 little thing: it was pretty long...
    10 min would have been better.
  • Sheranda
    avatar
    Ashens speaks with a similar accent, but a deeper voice.
  • Film Brain
    avatar
    Nice to see so many kind and positive comments!

    [quote]10 min would have been better[/quote]
    There are so many things wrong with this movie, that would have been impossible.

    [quote]the sex joke killed it for me[/quote]
    That was the part I worried about most, but it's brief enough to look over, I think. (The shot in question is only 3 seconds)
  • Sheranda  - Rough town?

    Speaking of jokes, I still don't understand the Salt Lake City joke.
  • DragonQueen  - great

    I like the review, great job. If you do another one please bash Akira to mash, I am anime fan and I hate Akira :s

    Yep, that was me. *Whoops!*

    I tried to give
    it an 'indie' style, but it
    really backfired.

    But hey, it's our first review,
    so now we know.

    The
    next review, due late this week, is entirely tripod
    based.

    Well it was not bad for being your first one. Still it was not very good looking from techical point.

    We are very aware of that, as you saw in my note at the top.

    The review was originally filmed in 16:9. We then noticed that the frame revealed far too much of the set-up and had to be cropped. Also, some of the footage had an odd change in lighting, which had to re-processed in post-production (with limited success). There was also shakycam, which backfired, and forced some parts of the review to be re-shot (in noticably better quality).

    I've already seen some of the editing work on the second episode, and it easily trumps this installment. You'll see soon enough. :)

    Great Movie to start the series off, I thought your jokes were awesome!

    The whole thing was really entertaining, your accent helps!

    You already know how I feel about its quality, it needs improvement - big time. No more camera shakes! Everyone should make note this a prototype and the next one should blow them all away!

    But other then that the actual content here was top notch!

    I cant wait to see the next one - that will truly be the start of it for me! B[b]AD MOVIE BEATDOWN HOOOOOO!!!!!![/b]

    Sweet I got a credit!
    :woohoo:

    I'm guessing the Salt Lake City Joke was a non-sequiter?
  • bluemage77  - Ugh...

    I found this review to be very boring. I didn't laugh at a single joke. Sorry, but you didn't do it at all for me. Perhaps you should write better material.
  • Sheranda
    avatar
    Ouch. Give him a break. He was starting out.
  • ElementalHero  - Equilibrium? A Bad Movie? Sorry, Don't Go Togethe
    avatar
    Great review, Pluto Nash was just horrible.

    Now as for Equilibrium, I'm sorry, I just don't see Equilibrium being a bad movie. And I'm a guy who suffered through bad movies such as Love Guru, The Beach, Catwoman, Kazaam, From Justin To Kelly, the list goes on and Equilibrium is not on that list of cinematic stinkers.
