As much as we love their short skits, we couldn’t find it in our hearts to let Derrick Comedy off easy for this disaster.
Also, here’s our first venture into scripted territory, and we hope this is as enlightening as the full review. We intend to keep making these with every TSotSC video!
Well howdy everybody! We here at The Closet Nerd Network have been going through some changes. If you haven’t noticed, all of our movies are now being embedded through blip.tv instead of YouTube. This change in video hosting site means a few things for us:
1) All our videos will now include advertisements (hooray for a teensy bit of revenue!).
2) We will be able to post episodes as one video instead of several parts because blip.tv doesn’t have the 15-minute limit that YouTube does.
3) We have our own snazzy, new, custom video player (oooooo….).
Also we have a new idea and direction for “Two Sides of the Same Coin” episodes and how they will be conducted. For now this will be a secret, but with our next video upload we will (hopefully) be including a little something extra that we hope y’all will enjoy. If y’all like it then we’ll continue to do it with each TSotSC review.
Anywhosit, you can check out our blip.tv channel at http://blip.tv/theclosetnerdnetwork, and don’t forget to look for more upgrades to the site in the coming weeks ahead.
No monkey business about this film – it’s pretty fantastic (save for a few minor details we caught, but they don’t detract too much).
A trip to a Chinese restaurant/mart lands us some interesting treats.
We will not have a “Two Sides of the Same Coin” review up in time this week. Brighton and I are pretty much drowning in our “to do” lists, so we just haven’t had time to sit down and record anything. We did see a movie and still intend on reviewing it, but we won’t be able to until early next week.
Some of you may have noticed that the two reviews that we currently have up are in two different screen formats.
Some of you may have also noticed that there are some parts at the beginnings and ends of video sections that have the dialogue cut short just a bit from the editing process.
I have noticed both of these things, and I will be re-editing, re-formatting, and re-uploading all of the videos to make sure everything is uniform and no content is cut out by accident. I am relatively new to the whole editing process, so this has been quite a learning experience for me. And really – there is no better way to learn than to dive boldly into the unknown and then go “Wait a minute….” and correct your mistake.
(That is, when the situation allows for you to pull back and fix things like that. There are numerous cases where diving boldly into the unknown will not allow for mulligans.)
This week we look at the disappointment that is “Cowboys and Aliens” – a film that had great potential but terrible execution.
