Bonus MAGfest Special: Mendo Eats Boogers, Smog Balls, and Satan's Ass-Crack!

So when are you going to get to ENDHIRAN (aka ROBOT), an even more kick-ass Indian film?
1/17/2013 2:53:36 AM
Just as soon as someone donates a copy!
1/11/2013 12:00:43 AM
So, interesting addendum to this Let's Try, I eventually tricked Chris The Nerd and Tony Helms (from The Horror Cast) into eating the Boogers while they were drunk...

OK. Been thinking about this one all day. First things first: Magnificent. On the shortlist of best films of 2012 (that I saw).And I couldn't even get the subtitles to work. Wasn't really that difficult to follow, though. It may have even been a blessing, since I wasn't focusing on the little text on the bottom of the screen but on the colors and dancing over all the rest of it. I missed that there was a flashback, though, so I was under the impression that Rathore simply died one more time than he actually did. Meh.It really does capture a lot of the fun of the old Jackie Chan films. Half the action and a quarter of the stunts, but that still beats anything I've seen in years. Plus, songs. It had all the goofy, stupid charm and outdated gags and sound effects of good imported cheese, plus it looked like a Mentos commercial! And yes, I mean that in a good way, somehow. Never thought I'd consider that a complement. Pure cinematic candy. And campy as hell, oh my god. Mustache Thief and Indian Joe Pesci running from a cop right out of CHiPs, and the most unconvincing (but catchy) stock song dubbing I can recall? Yeah, that really does put Les Miz in perspective, somewhere near the 99 cent aisle.Even though I still haven't seen The Avengers, I don't think your "proof" of its inferiority was fair. Rowdy Rathore was a remake of a remake of a remake of probably another remake. It has also had years of build-up, plenty of time to iron out the kinks while getting ever more lavish and over-the-top. Though I'd have to see the first one to know the difference. And so I shall, if I can find it.But great find, Mr. Mendo. What were the names of those other movies you mentioned in your year-end list? Some of them sounded a little too difficult to spell out on a guess.P.S. Do you have a favorite song from the movie? I liked the wedding one best (Chamak Challo Chel Chabeli). Not that I know what the hell they were singing about.

Ek Tha Tiger, Bol Bachchan, and Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi!

I was in the room at MAGFest when they watched this epic. It is just as AWESOME as the say it is!
1/9/2013 7:59:17 PM
1/9/2013 8:15:26 PM
Abso-fraggin-lutely! I still need to show this to my nephews.
1/9/2013 9:19:35 PM
I gotta get to Magfest next year.. btw. why the heck is Magfest in so early January? Are you guys crazy? Am I supposed to sit on a plane with a hang-over from new-years eve only to have another hang-over, the mag-fest hangover on the way back? Why so early january? what is with you people?
1/9/2013 9:44:20 PM
Because everyone is still on Xmas break, I'd imagine...
1/9/2013 11:53:31 PM
I'm just glad my vacation time resets on Jan. 1st.
1/9/2013 12:47:32 PM
Nothing personal Mendo (I'm not the greatest looker myself either) but you're rather...giant.
1/9/2013 4:41:31 PM
Well, a little known fact about internet reviewers is that most of us are actually very tiny! Make of that what you will...
1/9/2013 12:01:22 PM
Why does Joey get picked on so much? You don't see anyone pushing the Cinema Slob around during the video. It's like watching the Brotherhood of Evil be dysfunctional and awkward with Joey being Quicksilver, Mendo being Avalanche, Slob as Blob and Joshua the Anarchist as Toad...OK maybe not the best analogy but the best I could come up with at the time.And Komrade Kitty is so damn cool, even if she rage quits during her videos way too much. I too was shaking my head watching the Deadliest Warrior although the phallus debates during the show always made me smile. And the fancy computer program was probably SkyNet just pissing us off because he knows how dumb we are next to machines.
1/9/2013 4:42:36 PM
Well, Joey got knocked over so much because he was closer than Josh. ^_^
1/9/2013 5:03:23 PM
Lol, I guess it was convenience at the time. Almost certain that we were all picking on Josh on and off screen ;-)
1/10/2013 3:42:34 AM
I'm TOAD? Dude, I'm nowhere near that agile. Can't I be Mastermind?
1/10/2013 5:29:28 AM
Porn Critic is Mastermind, but Mesmero is up for grabs!
1/10/2013 6:31:56 AM
Can I be Omega Red?
1/10/2013 7:50:37 AM
Only if you fit the only criteria required, a love of tentacles...and a hatred of Wolverine.
1/10/2013 8:42:44 AM
Well, X-Men Origins WAS garbage...
1/10/2013 10:17:59 AM
All it took was watching the trailer for me to instantly hate the whole idea...still haven't seen the movie. Everything seemed wrong on so many levels, and I'm Canadian and a fan of the X-Men, so I have a double standard on Wolverine and how he is portrayed. Just like Captain America, Superman and Spider-Man have built-in expectations, so does Wolverine. Except with Wolverine, you expect him to be a loner, smoke, drink, ride a motorcycle, be a bit of a poonhound, and have his enemies be out for personal revenge and not world domination, and his ex-bosses being completely douchebags about his current affiliation. And he's always pissed off because of the mental implants and memory gaps since he can never get a straight answer about his past.
1/10/2013 9:14:23 AM
Wait why am I the Blob... oh right. Carry on then. "NOTHING CAN MOVE THE SLOB!"
1/10/2013 10:11:56 AM
I'm sure Brad Jones would say something like..."Oh with his large manly frame and eloquent delivery, he is clearly not a lame ass remake of a classic horror movie. Instead, he's an icon equal of 'Juggernaut Bitch' and NOT A CRAPPY CGI VINNIE JONES. Oh, and for the record...Blob could get more girls than Marquis De Sade."And Blob gets to throw Toad down the stairs when his toothbrush gets used, so he's instantly awesome by beating up his teammates.
1/10/2013 10:28:41 AM
Should I just be glad that I wasn't in the room so I would be constantly compared to all those boobalicious female mutants in the X-men comics?
1/10/2013 11:01:25 AM
Actually I think you'd be best suited to be Boom Boom. Ursa is the Scarlett Witch and Questions is Mystique.
1/9/2013 4:09:41 AM
That was a lot of fun, guys.
1/9/2013 8:13:51 AM
Yes, it was! Josh had had his first drink right before!
1/10/2013 3:40:25 AM
Incorrect, I had my first intoxication experience. It was like my third drinking experience.
1/10/2013 3:57:56 AM
Whatever you say, alky...
1/9/2013 4:03:56 AM
I honestly thought this whole year (2012) you were constantly bringing this movie up as a joke, now I think I'm going to check it out xD
1/9/2013 4:18:50 AM
I keep telling you people, but you don't wanna listen!
1/9/2013 2:15:43 AM
Sorry Mendo, but there's no moustache as epic as yours.
1/9/2013 2:48:55 AM
Well, I'll let it slide just this once... ;-)
1/9/2013 2:06:25 AM
And the review has inspired a GIF:http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll97/sirjables/mendohipshuffle_zps611c8b5b.gif
1/9/2013 12:40:43 AM
Nice videos! I may actually see the movie now if I can get ahold of it. Looks like you guys had fun.Is it weird that I'm now morbidly curious about exactly how that toast stuff smelled?
1/9/2013 12:43:04 AM
Like raw gasoline...
1/8/2013 9:43:15 PM
Well, that settles what I'm gonna watch tonight.Be there spoilers?
1/8/2013 11:18:27 PM
The plot isn't really big on twists, but on how crazy it can get. I don't think we ruined anything. :-)
1/8/2013 5:22:59 PM
Truly, we are silly! ^_^
1/8/2013 7:22:57 PM
The movie must have put you in that mood. What would a Bollywood Expendables look like? 0_0
1/8/2013 7:32:38 PM
Not sure, but I know who'd be the leader: Superstar Rajni!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRvPcaNZxq8 (Keep in mind, he's playing a PSYCHIATRIST in this movie)
1/8/2013 7:49:38 PM
1/9/2013 1:35:18 AM
The only thing I can say about that clip is "PHYSICS!"
1/10/2013 4:16:13 AM
Superstar Rajini laughs in the face of your physics!
