From the makers of the Cinema Slob Christmas Special, it’s the Cinema Slob’s 2012 Year in Review! Watch as the Slob, or “Zach” as he is sometimes known, reminisces with his friend Steve about all the movies they saw last year!
The Agonizer is for all posts that don’t fit in any other category, including comic book reviews, book reports, editorials, rants, and more!
Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo is now apparently the greatest movie of all time, but does it deserve that honor? And while we’re at it, did Citizen Kane deserve that honor in the first place? And is it really possible to call any movie the greatest movie of all time?
Roland looks at the game that started the tactical shooter trend. It didn’t exactly popularize it; that honor lies with Rainbow Six, but Spec Ops did come out first. What, you might ask, does the 1998 Spec Ops game have to do with the 2012 Spec Ops game? Nothing. Nothing at all.
It’s a special all-singing, all-dancing (except for the dancing) episode of Stuff You Like! In honor of the Les Misérables movie adaptation coming out today, Ursa musically summarizes the entire three-hour stage musical in four minutes. You’re welcome.
It’s the beginning of an annual holiday tradition! Come spend Christmas with the Cinema Slob and all of his friends, including Brad Jones AKA the Cinema Snob, the Last Angry Geek, “Steve”, and the entire Agony Booth crew (plus or minus 17 reviewers).
He’s our awesome everyman who fights alongside the Avengers in a snappy suit. Today, Ursa takes on that most mild-mannered of badasses, Agent Phil Coulson, and discusses why Clark Gregg made Movieverse Coulson too adorable to live, along with sacrificial lambs, and death, destroyer of worlds.
To celebrate the winter solstice, and the end of… disaster movies set in 2012, the Renegado counts down the 5 least awful movies based on a total misunderstanding of the Mayan calendar.
Yulia showcases her favorite mystery novel of all time: Daniel Hecht’s Puppets, the prequel to Skull Session, and a grossly underrated tale about a serial killer who hangs his victims like marionettes on the wall… and it has some stuff about illegal government experiments, too.
Now that the cream of the crap of Shaq’s raps have been milked for all they’re worth, Mendo turns his critical sights to the musical endeavors of another athlete: the late Randy “Macho Man” Savage and his 2003 song “Be a Man”. But could there be a pleasant surprise waiting for him?
gooder: (adj) a movie that goes from bad to awesome because of at least one single key moment.
Watch the genesis of Friday Night Fright Flicks with this episode from the archives of The Count Jackula Show, guest-starring the Horror Guru and Film Renegado! Count Jackula (with help from his alter-ego Count Wiso-ula) counts down his 13 favorite movies that are so bad, they’re awesome, including The Green Slime, Toxic Avenger, Jason X, Chillerama, and many more!
It’s Mendo’s first ever song review! And, while we here at the Agony Booth would never force you to admit to yourself that Shaq even had a rap career in the first place, someone who may or may not have played for the Lakers did in fact record this song. Also, he may have dressed in a suit that made him look like a salmon. But you’ll have to watch the episode to find out!
We go back to the days of floppy disks with SEAL Team, a 1993 game for DOS that was the precursor to the tactical shooter genre. Watch as Roland assembles a SEAL team and dispatches it for missions in the Mekong Delta!
Join Johnny Oldschool as he watches the internet videos that make you say “WTF?” including an edible baby, an egg you can masturbate with, bizarre anti-drug PSAs, and a Claymation scene created by guys who clearly didn’t watch the aforementioned PSAs.
With Hotel Transylvania director Genndy Tartakovsky onboard to direct a new CGI adaptation of the popular sailor man, Joey takes a look at how it should be done!
It’s the first video Yulia (the artist formerly known as Full of Questions) ever posted online, where she debunked misconceptions that a lot of people have about the Sherlock Holmes books, while wearing a silly hat. Now including a brand-new audio commentary!
She’s as broken and scarred as the rest of the Avengers, but it’ll never prevent her from doing the right thing. Black Widow: She’s Ursa’s favorite Avenger. And now, she gets character development, and a plot arc to boot!
this episode of Fright Bites, the Fear Fan tackles XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the recent
re-imagining of the classic turn-based strategy game X-COM: UFO Defense. Was it
worth the wait? Hell, yeah!
The Budget Barrel is back, baby, with an FPS where you hunt down terrorists in vaguely-defined missions. Most Wanted makes some changes to the engine and the formula used by In Harm’s Way and Shadow Force. How does it turn out? Badly. For everyone involved.
It’s the first episode of Fright Bites, a new weekly series from the Fear Fan where he provides brief horror reviews. Here, he looks at the horror novel This Book Is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It by David Wong, author of John Dies at the End, soon to be a major motion picture starring Paul Giamatti.
Secret Service: In Harm’s Way was pretty good. For a budget game, that is. But FUN Labs took the same game engine and most of the assets and made… another one.
