Oh yea, they're really entertaining. Although that 3rd guy who shows up from time to time (can someone help me with the names please?) has such a god damn annoying laugh.

I've gotten used to Rich Evans laugh :lol

Mike Stoklasa : big guy, short hair, played Plinkett ( in the SW reviews )

Rich Evans : Large guy - that laugh ( Plays the physical Plinkett in Half In The Bag reviews )

Jack Packard - skinny bald guy

Jay Bauman - short. beard. likes indie movies.


----- and occasionally - Josh - big balding guy with big beard - usually only appears on Best of The Worst.

I like Jay haha.

He seems to like only obscure movies or b-grade films, while the bearded guy seems a bit more level headed but is outnumbered by the other 3.

That sounds kind of backwards. More and more it seems like Mike is one to like simpler popcorn movies meant for general audiences while Jay sticks to liking more of independent and weird/disgusting/gory movies. :lol

Yeah one of Jay's movies of 2015 was an indie film shot entirely on iPhones.

Yea, I guess for Mike I meant more obscure, not indie, and b grade. He tends like the "so bad it's good" elements of some bigger movies but doesn't like ones without it as much.

I'll go along with that. I mean - I watched 2012 thinking i'd at least get a kick out of laughing at the movie - but it wasn't even THAT bad enough that you enjoy the shitty-ness of it.

it was just BAD.

It's a balance. RLM may be too cynical at times, but I also feel like some other critics like the Schmoes and the people att Collider have a tendency of letting hype carry them away a bit too easily. I loved Chris Stuckmann's review of Rogue One because he brought up positives and negatives and gave it a B+, and didn't go the fanboy route of "omg this thing I love is the best thing ever". Generally speaking I like it when whoever I'm watching has that level of "there are good parts and there are bad parts" because to me, at least trying to look at something slightly critical will always be more interesting than the "everything was awesome"-approach that some critics have sometimes.

I generally try to watch reviews from all of these people because it gives me a better picture of what to expect, and I find it that it's easier if you have more opinions than just watching that one critic. RLM to me are consistently the most amusing to watch because they get really in depth and they're just fun guys. Many of the other critics are more "serious", which can be good for contrast, but often not as entertaining to watch. But yeah, Stuckmann has some great Hilariocity-reviews where he goes to town on some bad movies.

I've never understood why so many people get upset if RLM has an opinion they don't share. They never have claimed to be the final say on what's good and bad. To me, they've always come across as just showing their opinions. And like you said, what I like best is that they at least give specific reasons as to why they like or dislike a thing.

Yeah all their shows are fun to watch.

Best of The Worst is usually laugh out loud hilarious.

Half In The Bag is just two guys chatting about a movie.

I've never seen their Best of the Worst since I've never seen any of the films they talk about and watching people discuss movies I never heard of just feels weird.

Love Half in the Bag though.

That's kind of the point since they intentionally watch terribly low budget shitty movies that nobody has ever heard of.

Some of them are just like 5 min PSA videos with horrific production values.

Wheel 6 doesn't have Shoji, Wheel 6 has the one with Jason Bateman, the osteoporosis dance and the fart video.

Yes I have watched all of the BotW episodes like 10 times each and I know this :(

My favorite Wheel episodes are probably #9 (with the creepy clown therapist) the one with the exploding varmints video and the one with the "how to seduce women through hypnosis" and "how to get revenge" videos.

Haha How to ruin someones life unutterably :lol Terrible

And hypnosis rape   :omg:

Oh yeah The " How To Tell If Im Really In Love " video. So awful and cringing. Anything where teens are talking heads with faux hip music and horribly cheesy graphics :lol

Osteoporosis Dance discussion is gold.

The Shoji video was good too. All that build up and then he's AWFUL :rollin


And American Flatulators  :| :| Holy God how did that get made. So so bad.

Regarding Adami's earlier point about not having watched the movies they watch on Best of the Worst, hence not being interested - it's something I thought about the first 2-3 episodes myself, and I've heard others say, but once you give BotW a shot, it really won't be a problem. If you take their regular episodes where they watch b-movies, those are either "so bad they're good"-movies or they just suck completely, basically the kind of movies you wouldn't want to sit through, but getting the highlights in the episode is enough. The wheel episodes are different since they often focus on instruction videos and weird things like that, the kind of VHS tapes you don't even understand how they were made in the first place, and that you would most likely not be able to get a copy of even if you tried.

Either they get sent obscure DVDs / VHS or they go to charity shops and pick the worst looking ones they can find.

Oh man i just tried to watch another YouTuber talk about Rogue One and it was painful.

It's like they all make videos for people with ADHD. Constant jump cuts in the talking so everytime he has to pause his super fast talking - it cuts so he NEVER STOPS TALKING AT STUPID SPEED EVEN FOR A SECOND COZ YO MIGHT GET BORED AND WATCH SOMETHING ELSE AND PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO MY TWITTER AND FACEBOOK AND MYSPACE AND THANKS FOR WATCHING AND PLEASE WATCH MY OTEHR VIDEOS AND LEAVE A COMMENT BELOW IF YOU WANT MORE OF...


Arrrgh. Off.

RLM are the perfect antidote to that style of Video.

I know he's very popular and well liked but I can't watch Jeremy Jahns videos for that reason, he just talks so darn fast and every review feels like 20 minutes crammed into 4 minutes. I like him more when he appears on Collider Movie Talk because he talks in a more normal pace and it's not edited together or sped up, but his stand alone reviews are frustrating because of that. Same with Movie Bob who also goes ultra speed in his reviews.

Yeah so many of them try way too hard.

I love Half In The bag cause they're so casual and laid back. It's like you're hanging out with them almost.
