    Lol, I'm SUCH a homophobe :)


    Seriously, this was a deep, detailed commentary and heartbreaking to listen to.

    *hugs to you Ali*

    Aww Falc, you got it wrong. If you were replying to me like Bryan did you would have posted right at the end of the video because you don't know how the reply button works on the vids :)

    Wow. Ok, first, when I originally watched the EDII review, I got confused a bit and didn't see the second half, because the "thank you" before the commercial break made me think that that was the end of the review. But what I saw I loved, and rewatching it today to see the other half made me love it even more. It's my favorite review of yours now, maybe my favorite on the site, period. I definitely heart you, and that may be weird coming from an unemployed 39-year-old Texan dumbass, but as my mama always said, "Creepy is as creepy does."

    But theriousthly folkth...

    It's probably been said by others many times already, as you mentioned, but this review struck a chord in me, for many reasons. I was in choir all throughout high school myself. Originally because I thought it would be an easy class, but then we performed Brahms' "Requiem" and I fell in love with it, and began my true love affair with music. By the end of high school, I'd won several state choir competitions and was already planning for college and then a lifetime career as a musician. Sad part of the story being that I let family, friends, and others tell me that it was a stupid thing to try for, and eventually let them erode my self-esteem to the point that I gave up on a life in music and ended up settling for crap mundane jobs and borderline depression for most of my life before finally ending up in the position that I'm in today, which, avoiding specifics, isn't terribly good.

    But the things said in the second half of that review, and in this commentary, almost brought me to tears, seriously. I'm really glad you figured this shit out so much earlier than I did, and take it from me, the words you spoke are probably even more important than you know.

    So I guess my message is Keep on Truckin', and fuck 'em if they can't take a joke. Heart ya.

    Yesss! I was hoping you'd do a commentary for this episode because I knew I'd really love to hear what you had to say about it.

    I can't believe those are (mostly) all things you've actually heard. Constructive criticism is one thing but being an asshole is another. Don't let people's hateful comments get to you; there are so many more of us who love what you do.

    I didn't even start the video but I give it a 1 out 10,it was terrible in my opinion no offense.

    And I will respond to your opinion, Panda, by telling you that you suck, you're an asshole and that I don't give two fucks about your stupid opinion (even though I clearly do, since I'm talking the time to write this) and then after acting like a three year old with a bad case of diaper-rash, I'll show that I don't know what irony is, by telling you to GROW UP! Because it's the age of The Net, and polite and intelligent conversation is dead. Enjoy.

  • Autisticwriter  - Congrats on the 100th episode
    Hello Lupa, Congrats on your hundredth episode. I know you had more but i just wanted to wish you a congrats on it.
    I actually heard about the series when my Cousin first showed it to me. I think the Army of Darkness was just being released on DVD. I didn't want to get into it at first.
    It's funny because i had this idea of a different version of how the Necronomicon was created. I might turn it into a fanfic soon, but if you are interested i will send a link and all that fun jazz.
    3:55 - i wanted to join theater in high school but i felt i wasn't good enough. I played a role in middle school and i was Merlin and i couldn't remember my lines that i needed to bring the lines with me on a note card and read it from there. So, i chicken out of theater. During high school, i felt the same way you were describing about your choir. But, i learned later that i had glitches in my life and it was due to my autism.

    Everyone goes through a breaking point at least at some point in their lives. Some get better and move on while others don't. I do agree, about harsh critism hurts a lot but also inspirational. Like the saying "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger" Or it might be "What doesn't kill you, only makes you stranger" :)

    Yea, i am glad you went lighter on the dark stuff because i personally love dark parts in certain shows and movies but if they get too serious then i avoid it.

    Have you heard of the remake of evil dead. It may be good or bad. Probably not as good as the orignial but keep an open mind on it.

    Also, i believe either the Nightmare on Elm Street movies or Final destination series was when i got into horror movies. My first horror film was Hannibal but i slept through the scary parts while one of my brothers stood up to watch the movie.

    Ok good luck and can't wait until the next review
  • snoofulus
    I don't know much, but from what I've read, they're including the tree rape into this remake.
    One of the producers (one of whom is Raimi) decided to include it after initial plans not to.

    And that after Sam Raimi's public statements about how he'd regretted including that, because, in his words, it was too gratuitous, and he wanted to thrill and entertain people, not offend them.
    But now, eh, fuck that now...

    So naturally I'm pissed. That scene ruined the film as far as I'm concerned.
  • *sigh*  - About the singing
    avatar
    Personally I loved your singing, but it was the song itself that I wasn't too hyped about. Just throwing that out there.

    I like your singing, to be honest.
  • EmperorSam
    I'm really proud of you.
  • zepolmas  - For what it's worth...
    I think you sang really well.

    Lupa, I've been watching your videos for a while and I felt I needed to comment for this one.

    You're probably the realist reviewer on the site, there's a sense of deeper humanity in your reviews plus your optimism rather than THIS MOVIE SUCKS commentary makes it all the more enjoyable.

    As for the review it was really well done, I even enjoyed the musical bit and I'm not a fan of lyrical music an any sense. Keep up the good work and congrats on the 100th episode,
  • snoofulus
    Okay, maybe I'm lacking context here, or missing an x amount of irony layers, but yea... that second half seemed like an awfully serious way of "dealing" with hateful or critical comments.

    And not serious as in "dark", but rather melodramatic. Again, maybe there's a whole bunch of irony layers I'm missing, but this is a mostly lighthearted movie review show - not too big, or pretentious, but a fun movie riff show. How well does an emotional, melancholic exploration of self-doubt... over this light review show... really fit into the picture?

    I get it when it's played for comedy in countless equivalents elsewhere on this site - sure, maybe they sometimes express some actual sentiments lurking inside the head, but when they come out... they do so aware of the format they're referring to.
    Pulling this whole big melodrama about self-doubts over that fun unpretentious review show would be... taking it (and in some way, always, the actual review show as well) too seriously? So they play it for comedy, and make the exaggerated, disproportional melodrama a subject of the comedy, as well.

    This rather seemed like an actual attempt to cope with negative comments, and those are, I dunno... not relevant enough to get upset over? So in Russia, we have saying - "to shoot at burds with cannon"; this may have been it: shooting at small burds with a huge canon of melodrama.

    Also, the singing at the end, while decent at times, could get quite mediocre in some places; a good voice in need of some (maybe not too much) practice. Off-pitch singing can be hilarious when played for comedy, but when done in this kind of context.. . with this kind of unironic lyrics.
    And again, with them being all about self-affirmation and defiance against negativity, it just seemed a little... forced? Like, I'd rather just not give a crap about those commenters, than write a song about how little I-

    But I mean I don't wanna get too obnoxious here, or hypocritically make a huge fuss about it either - I'm just a casual viewer, and this appeared somewhat odd to me.

    Fly on the wall - nothing to see here. :)

    I'm sorry, Lupa, but you FAILED! FAILED!



    ...your review was funny. Okay, maybe not the review part, but the part with the zombies was hilarious! In fact, I assumed you were doing something similar to the movie you reviewed, except you were mixing dark and comedic instead of scary and comedic.

    It goes serious review, funny/dark with the zombies, serious with you taking them seriously, heartwarming with the you talking to yourself, weepy with you singing, to hilarious with the end credit stuff.

    I was going to rag on you for only releasing an HD version, which meant it wouldn't play right on my laptop. But, you know what? I don't care. This was awesome, and I wanted you to know that.

    And, note, I wrote this right after you said you weren't trying to be funny, so I hadn't seen the whole thing.
