VIDEO: Double Team (1997)

On this episode, it’s Mr. Mendo: The Lost Reviews! Mendo is currently lacking a computer, so we’ve unearthed his unfinished review of Double Team, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dennis Rodman, Mickey Rourke, indestructible vending machines, and a tiger. Watch as Mendo’s comrades, including the Cinema Slob, Johnny Oldschool, and host Joey Tedesco help to piece together this rare artifact into something resembling an actual review.

And if you enjoy Mendo’s show, please click here [thanks to everyone who donated and helped Mendo reach his goal!] to find out how you can request a review, and help get Hack Attack back on the air!

    In my defense, I had about four hours to put this review together at the time, and I had to film and edit it three times.  Something had to give.  Still, while not the strongest episode I made in Afghanistan, it’s the only one that still exists.  🙂

      What was the others?

      • MichaelANovelli

        Well, there was the original pilot version of Juno (which we saw a clip of here) which was never really meant to air, the original version of the Salo review, and a review of And Then Came Lola that was never even finished.  I think there may have been one more, but I don’t remember…

        • There was also Jennifer’s Body, but I think that was post-Afghanistan.

          • MichaelANovelli

            Well, I was home on Emergency Leave, but I was still technically deployed.  😉  Also, I filmed a version of what would become my famous It’s A Wonderful Life recap that month, too!

      By the way, Mendo. Thank you for your service to your country. 🙂

      • MichaelANovelli

        Don’t mention it.  🙂

          Hope you get your computer issues resolved and can get a better, more awesome one.

      I smell a fan obsessed futile hunt for the ‘lost episodes” on the back burner! Depends on the meaning ‘exists.’ Were they lost, destroyed or erased?

      • MichaelANovelli

        Well, they were saved onto DVD-RWs and mailed to the guy who did my title sequence.  I don’t know what he might have done with them, if they ever even arrived…

  • MichaelANovelli

    The fundraiser is almost over and we are so close to our goal!  Thank you so much, everybody!

    Itchy & Scratchy don’t make puns. They even can’t talk.

    • Fantasy Mission Force

      Wrong.

    And here I thought I was the only Canadian that was on this site…

    Typing with a gun seems inefficient.

  • MichaelANovelli

    I still think that ad is one of the better pictures of me…

  • MichaelANovelli

    Wow, this episode completely capped off our donation needs in a day and a half.  Go us!  🙂

  • Torgeaux

    I threw a bone your way.  Keep up the good work!

    • MichaelANovelli

      Thanks!

  • MichaelANovelli

    Still, I’m glad this is finally up.  You have no idea how frustrating it was when this review got lost in the mail and then Doug Walker did his own review of it.  There was a lot of that when I was deployed…

  • I think the unsung hero of this review is Private Mannequin, laying nearly perfectly still in his bunk for the entire video. It’s the little things, really.

    • MichaelANovelli

      Which is funny, considering that there’s an alternate version of this where he took part!

  • MichaelANovelli

    So, True Believers(c), Hack Attack should have its next episode up by the beginning of next month!

    • Muthsarah

      Since the donation thingee can’t be seen anymore, did you reach your $700 goal?

      • MichaelANovelli

        And then some!  🙂

        • Muthsarah

          So then why do we have to wait until next month?  I paid money for this.  I own you now!  How do we know you’re not going to flee with your ill-gotten gains and take your show with you?  At least put up a Mendo Tries.  Or a vid of you dancing or something.  Dance, monkey! :p

    New episode soon!
