Mr. Mendo joins forces with the Rosen Hacker
for one of the worst Best Picture Oscar nominees ever, The Help
! Based on Kathryn Stockett's novel, Emma Stone is a White Savior character in 1960s Mississippi who writes a book about the black maids in town (Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer), which makes all the white people in town feel bad about racism. It also makes a buttload of money for Emma, while leaving the maids worse off then before. Whoops!
Also in this episode, Mendo and Rosen get a lot of help from their fellow reviewers as they try to figure out just how many cameos can physically fit in one review!You can catch more episodes of the Rosen Hacker's show at rosenhacker.posterous.com

“Yeah, he might look cute. But while fighting for the people of Grpnlp at the Battle of Plorvox 12, he racked up a body count that would make Rambo shit himself!”Juno (2007)

Yes, all of this happens during the review. Honest to blog.Gravity (2013)
“Finding myself taking the ‘it’s a great visual experience, the story is secondary to that’ stance this time around vaguely disturbs me.”The Social Network (2010)
“After watching The Social Network, I’m more inspired to unplug my computer than I am to create the next online sensation, especially if it means meeting one of these characters.”
