    nice review I really hate these movies period and pretty much any slasher film period
  • FearBoo  - ok review
    avatar
    but he can do better
    the bored thing sucks

    Zombie Fisherman?!? Oh NOZ!

    You know the monotone voice thing really works for this guy; others it would not. very nice review and I look forward to the next

    you need to pick up the pace you speak to slowly
  • NeonLights
    Somehow the slow review makes it more interesting. After hearing Doug going 1000 words per minute, it's nice to keep the pace low for a movie review.

    Hope Phelous does more, loving the videos.
  • Kurvos
    1000 words per minute? Well, actually; not really. Ever watched Zero Punctuation? That dude talks LITERALLY 1000 words per minute in his reviews.

    Great review - love the intro: "What do you want... Oh wait, there's a note here."

    I enjoy the intentionally lethargic pacing of Phelous' reviews, and I'd like to see more.
  • zmonbobbo  - Great review IMO
    I love the slow pace! It's just... different, ya know? It compliments the others on the site well.

    Also, I lost it with the "I hooked the sheriff" song. Best laugh I've had in a while. Keep 'em coming!
  • DanManX  - Kudos!

    Much, much better than the first one. And I agree, the slow voice actually works here. The bored/sarcastic attitude fits this guy well. If he were trying to be angry, like the Nostalgia Critic, or excited, like the Bum, it would suck, but this guy actually has a knack for being a smart alec. I rather enjoyed this. I don't know if it was laugh out loud funny, but honestly there wasn't any time when I thought I didn't want to finish it. Also, I think the intro was a nice touch. A bit of the AVGN's skit-method, but not over the top. Really, just well done.

    This isn't a bad review, but nothing really draws me to it. This isn't a video I would eagerly share with my frds. For now, i dun really want to see him on board. He can still experiment with his ideas and put it on youtube or his own website until he's found something really cool. I believe he can do better

    Still couldn't watch it till the end, because the total lack of entertainment in the voice tone bored to stiff -_-
  • Husky  - Not Bad
    avatar
    Not bad at all...yea, i also think you shouldnt overuse this being-bored-thing but it works great in those scenes where there are people running and screaming all over the place (which is about 50% of any slasher movie). Although the writing is very clever "Yes, He was a teleporting zombie fisherman!" :)

    Oh and the whole slasher-genre is perfect review fodder! About as stupid as movies get and THE ENDINGS ARE ALWAYS THE SAME! GAWD!!!
  • HatefulCactus
    Great review. A major improvement from his last review.

    Good, I liked the "A ZOMBIE FISHERMAN" part!
    Your best is Mac and Me but this is not bad

    PS. Nice Psyduck plushy

    I thought we generally voted no on this guy because he was... boring?

    It would help for a more cheerful mood. But you know its actualy good that you tryed to have a creepy atmosphere but this is a parody so you gotta try to be cheerful.

    [b]WHAT IS REALY GOOD IS THE EDITING! the funnest bit was the biging when he said I'm ok.[/b]
  • baba44713  - so...
    ..no comments yet about scenes from Scary Movie being edited in and discussed as part of the original movie?
  • MK tha Rebel  - This was good!
    avatar
    Nice work. I actually enjoyed this one.
  • mccurdy

    baba44713: That was done as a joke. No one complains when The Nostalgia Critic puts in clips of M Bison saying "Of course!".

    It's a great review all in all, the zombie fisherman bit cracks me up.

    This felt like it had a more suitable pace to your slow style and it became more entertaining to watch. Much of the opinions and sarcasm sips through the monotone voice. But it had a couple of moments it just got embarrassing, as in the moaning and groaning that seemed to go on for too long.
    And I also still don't know where I stand... if he should be brought onboard or not. This was a better example of what you do and your style, I'll admit that but I'm not sure if it would be fun to watch too many of these videos either.
  • NegaJoe  - Seriously Don't Do That!
    avatar
    Man was he miscast. Seeing Jack Black get shanked is kinda surreal, I'm so used to seeing him in comedic roles I find myself laughing at his death scene too..........at least these movies were entertaining in one aspect.:)

    Another interesting review from the nefarious Phelous. I still appreciate the monotone dialogue and dry wit and he still gets my vote.
  • Johnny Midnite  - I could take it or leave it
    This guy's a bit hit or miss. Looks like he's just getting started, and could have some potential for zing after zing, but I don't know.

    I like your style, man.

    Get him aboard the ThatGuy.com train!

    a bit better then the last one.

    but stil a bit too sloooow for my taste.
  • baba44713  - Gee..
    ..I know it was done as a "joke". I just didn't get what the joke was supposed to be.

    Anyways, I still am not sure whether I would put this guy on board or not, if it were my choice. His voice is still making me drowsy, and his face expressions sometimes get really irritating and make a good joke or point fall flat. However, editing is pretty good, the review flows nicely and the points - those that somehow transcend the slow delivery and needless grimacing - are pretty good. For instance, I can totally see NC using the exact same script and coming up with a terrific review.

    So basically, I think it should be a waste to ditch this guy, but perhaps his place is not in front of the camera but behind it. His scripts and editing skills seem to be top-notch, but he just isn't charismatic or talented enough to pull it off as a complete package. As of yet, that is, I would still like some more material before final decision (and no, I don't consider that "other" 5-second whatever neither clever, nor funny, it's just a meta-joke gone bad that I think I'll ignore).
  • Oldskoolmetalcez  - Good Review

    Nice review. This film was a stinker!
  • jensozzie  - Good review
    avatar
    I liked the review, the slow pace just kind of.. annoyed me, but it was pretty funny nonetheless.
  • SquarEvil  - Liked it more than the first one.
    avatar
    I think this guy is starting to improve. Either that or I'm getting used to his voice.

    My favorite part was the "ZOMBIE FISHERMAN?!?".

    Once again, I say get him on bored.
  • nice.colour
    Much better than the first entry but frankly I CAN wait until the next installment...a lot.
