|The Critic starts off the 11th season of the show by reviewing Mars Attacks! (1996). While praising the opening, some of the comedy from the Martians, some of the set designs, and Danny Elfman's score, he criticizes the lack of humor, finding that the comedy he does find funny at first just winds up to be annoying, the Martians speaking by just saying "Ack," and the ending ripping off other parody movies like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Special criticism is reserved for the film having a large well-known cast and making them all either boring characters or characters prone to being killed off too quickly.|
|364||"Lara Croft: Tomb Raider"||Doug Walker, Malcolm Ray, Tamara Chambers |
Jim Jarosz, Chris Stuckmann
|Doug Walker & Rob Walker||Doug Walker||January 9, 2018|
The Critic reviews Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001). Despite the bad reputation that video game movies tend to get, the Critic states that he enjoys the movie. He praises the action sequences, Lara's cool moments, the connection between Lara and the villain, and Angelina Jolie's performance, but criticizes some plot points such as the time traveling triangle's purpose and the Illuminati's plans as well as Daniel Craig's American accent.Channel Awesome Tag: Daniel Craig as Alex West: "Lara, no! The place is coming down!"
|365||"Yogi Bear"||Doug Walker, Malcolm Ray, Tamara Chambers||Doug Walker & Rob Walker||Doug Walker||January 30, 2018|
The Critic reviews Yogi Bear (2010). Though he does find it inoffensive, praises Justin Timberlake as Boo-Boo Bear, finds Tom Cavanagh's dead-inside reactions entertaining (leading to a running gag where he does a voice over of what Cavanagh is likely thinking) and gives it credit for the short running time, he finds the movie dumb and forgettable, criticizing Dan Aykroyd's performance as Yogi Bear, Anna Faris' generic role, the stupid clichéd plot and characters and the terrible jokes, especially an unfunny gag involving a car window. Special criticism is reserved for a random parody of 2001: A Space Odyssey involving a giant donut.
First Viewing: With both not having any fond connection to the cartoon, Doug and Rob felt like the movie also left no impact and don't even go as far as hate it. They both feel like the movie felt like it was made in the 90's and not 2010 and criticize the really bad effects during the rapids sequence, a cliché rain joke scene, as well as Anna Faris being in it (Doug in particular), but are still highly entertained by Cavanagh's dead-inside reactions.Channel Awesome Tag: Dan Aykroyd as Yogi Bear: "Urinate on her to mark her as your territory."
|366||"Horton Hears a Who!"||Doug Walker |
Malcolm Ray (cameo)
|Doug Walker||Doug Walker||February 6, 2018|
|The Critic reviews Horton Hears a Who! (2008). He considers the film to be the least bad Dr. Seuss movie to date, praising some of the funny and creative moments (especially a scene where Horton points out an obvious cliche), the animation, and a scene that paid tribute to Seuss' drawing style, but criticizes the pop culture references, the confusing demographic, Seth Rogen's voice as Morton being too distracting (even going so far as to call Morton his actor’s name), and the character of Katie being too creepy. Special criticism is reserved for a pointless anime scene as well as the out of place character traits.|
|367||"Batman Forever"||Doug Walker, Brian Heinz |
Malcolm Ray, Tamara Chambers, Jim Jarosz
|Doug Walker, Rob Walker & Brian Heinz||Doug Walker||February 13, 2018|
The Last Angry Geek joins The Critic to review Batman Forever (1995). They praise the visuals and some of the ideas, especially the Riddler's scheme, and admit that it's not as bad as Batman & Robin, but feel that the movie suffers from an inconsistent tone and tries too hard to play it safe and be family-friendly. They criticize the casting, especially Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face and some of the extras, the writing (particularly the dialogue), and the slow motion shots. Special criticism is reserved for the romantic subplot between Bruce Wayne and Dr. Chase Meridian.
First Viewing/Real Thoughts: Doug admitted that he loved the movie back when it first came out because he enjoyed Jim Carrey when he was a teenager, but both brothers refuse to give a pass to the movie. While they praise the visuals, the Riddler's plan, and Jim Carrey's performance as Edward Nygma, they still find it stupid and criticize Tommy Lee Jones' performance as Two-Face (especially when he criticized Carrey's over-the-top performance, despite himself giving an over-the-top performance), the extras, the romantic subplot, and how the action scenes don't add up to anything.Channel Awesome Tag: Elizabeth Sanders as Gossip Gerty: "Gotham must know! Oh!"
