    Well, I fail. I watched this on blip and wrote up detailed comments as I watched it because I was that impressed...and now I can't find what I wrote. Oh well. I was VERY impressed by this and the amount of work that must have gone into it; both as a fan of this site and as a fan of Bowie. (I'm one of those people who gets...titchy at covers and adaptations of songs sometimes). And the cameos were fabulous. Round of applause, again, I can only imagine how hard this was to pull off as well as you did.

    Loved the collaboration with Lupa, Todd, Lindsay and JewWario.
    Doing a review entirely in song is pretty cool and it certainly fits a David Bowie movie. It must have been a lot of work. Your singing is quite good, too. Unfortunately, IMO the review of the movie itself is one of your weakest. It is basically just a recap and it doesn't have the same level of humor and spot on observations as your other reviews. It still was very entertaining, and it is always nice to see something fresh.

    Edit: Yay, I'm not the only one posting now I don't have to feel so creepy *laughs*.

    Having watched it again now I remember some of what I was going to say before. For one ok - yep anyone who's watched enough of your show has probably noticed you have a great singing voice. But I've known singers before, just because you have the voice for it doesn't make it easy. Then add in the effort in getting your lyrics to flow with the song *and* create a coherant review. Plus the "normal" effort just to put together the script, video and clips. This is why I give such kudos; all that together had to take time and effort.

    And if I can lose the logical part of me for a moment....I do love the Dance Magic bit specifically. I know, I know, it's a running joke on the site anyway. But even before I found this site it was a joke in my group of friends, too. I have fond memories of random drunk people walking into a room where a party was happening and announcing out of nowhere "You remind me of the babe!" And yes...we would continue it. Every time.

    This really speaks to your talent as a video maker to be able to plan and pull off this video the way you did and write the review as parody lyrics as well as you did. I think most would have considered this way too ambitious and given up before they started.

    That.

    Was Freaking.

    Badass. o_o

    You, Oancitizen.

    Are My Hero.

    Got to say, this was a whole lot of fun! The effort put into the lyrics and song editing while still pulling off a review was very impressive. Good job dear sir!

    P.S. Still laugh at Jareth-Jewwario XD

    I went through such a Bowie phase a few years ago. I actually spent my entire English class wondering how many Bowie essays and such I could write without giving my teacher an aneurysm. I think it was something like 5. My teacher was a fan though, so no harm done.

    I love how you did this review. I almost fell over at GUN SEX! And the Heroes parody was brilliant. You have a lovely singing voice, Oancitizen. :)
  • DyloniusFunk  - This was amazing

    I know nothing about this movie and i don't care, this video was awesome. The amount of work that must have gone into it combined with getting the footage from the cameos must have been enormous. But the final product was well worth it. I actually don't usually know any of the movies Oancitizen reviews but efforts like this have quickly made him one of my favorite new producer on the site. Keep up the great work good sir.

    I've said this before, but this video is amazing! It makes me wish that next year anniversary be a musical and you play the part of the demanding music director. Nostalgia critic could be the producer, Todd the phantom, Phelous the lead star and Lupa and NChick switching as the female interest.

    Well, that won't happen but it could be funny.

    Anyway. Incredible review!

    Holy crap. You sir just made one of my favorite reviews EVER. the use of songs:perfect. the movie:awesome. great job. KEEP IT UP!

    Mr. Citizen has come a hell of a long way from his first review of a movie that featured a block of wood thrusted upon a woman's nether region (I think). Congrats, Kyle; me thinks you're no longer playing AAA-ball. It's straight to the majors now.

    This was the most amazing internet review I have ever seen. Bravo, sir.
  • Colochip  - HOLY SHITITITITIT
    That was, unbelievable. I went back and watched all your vids on reviewtopia when you came on tgwtg, but this was crazy. The editing was great. I've been pretty obsessed with the site for a bit over two years. But you are defiantly my new favorite reviewer. The work that went into this must have been insane. Just keep being awesome.
  • Moon Spirit  - David Bowie would be proud! maybe...
    avatar
    Dammit man, now I gotta craving for David Bowie now. That was the best review you have ever done thus far. Loved every minute, every cover of each song, and the collab with Lupa, JewWario, Lindsay, and Todd was phenomenal.

    You really have a good singing voice. Hope to hear more of your singing.

    You didn't try to do a Bowie impression, but I don't know if that's good or bad.
    And if you find yourself wondering what a particular scene or motif in the movie is about, it might be heroin.
  • Flaregun  - reply to brick mooncode

    brick mooncode:

    Cocaine, actually.

    This was right about the time Bowie's life was spiraling completely out of control mostly due to his massive cocaine habit.

    Brilliant. A ton of work must have gone into this. This fan appreciates your efforts. Sweet inclusion of Bowie's In Space!

    This movie was trippy o A o

    Totally.
  • ManicWebb

    Just when I was afraid you wouldn't use "Changes," there it was. I'll let the lack of "Under Pressure" slide, since it's more of a Queen song.

    This was amazing. Just a spectacular piece of work here. I would love to know a little bit about how long it took to write and plan because it looks like quite a lot of work to put together.

    Great cameo bits too. That JW makes a damn good Jareth.

    Great job Mr.Kyle Kallgren! I own this this and it's great also great review.
  • Divide By Zero  - Wow

    Just amazing work. Your effort paid off here, Oan. Fantastic review! Great cameos, great music, great everything. Well done!
  • Data Human
    avatar
    This... this is pretty amazing. Every speck of the massive effort that must have gone in to this shows. And getting JW back in his Bowie costume is always a worthy cause.
  • Sonicrose

    I can't believe you actually did the entire review in song. After the 3-5 minute mark I was convinced you wouldn't continue the gag. I was laughably wrong.

    I loved this. You do little things in your reviews which keep things fresh, and you well use your cameos. I'm enjoying this, I really am. I will probably NEVER watch a single film you review, but the reviews are entertaining - which is of course why I'm here.

    And I love seeing Jewreth show up :D
  • BigTopBrain  - commentary needed

    i normally have little interest in the commentaries on this site, but, if ever a video needed one, this is it!
  • Alkami  - INCREDIBLE

    This is the best review I have seen since 'Batman and Robin'.
  • The_Awesometeer

    awesome...dont know what else to say....
  • Keiji  - Couldn't watch it.
    avatar
    I don't see why people thought it being in song made it good, I could hardly listen to the review.
  • DirtyMinded  - Keiji - couldn't watch it.
    avatar
    Keiji, mate, you might want to try cleaning your ears out, this seems to be a problem only you have :p


    Oan, this was fantastic! Your singing is top-notch and the amount of detail you could go into about the movie, and making me laugh till I ached, while all in song was just superb!

    This is why you're one of my top 'must-watch' reviewers ;)
  • benfromcanada
    That's because you're retarded.
  • Joben
    @ Keiji, do you really not think a review of a David Bowie movie, done entirely in spoofs of David Bowie songs is clever?
  • RicardoBlayer
    avatar
    actually I also had, in some parts, a hard time understanding, but thats mainly because english its not my mother language and hearing it in some faster rithims its hard.
    However, overal I could understand pretty much everything he said, and the work put into this review is admirable, Oancitizen its one pf my favorite reviewers since I saw he´s review of "shortbus" on reviewtopia, and actually is review and insigths on "naked lunch" helped me to understand the movie better, wich was very important because I mention it on my interview to the Portugal Superior School of Cinema.

    So thank you Kyle you are a God among man
