Puss ‘N Boots – Part 1


Phelous, Lupa and Cinema Brad team up to look at a French cash in on Dreamworks’s Puss in Boots starring William Shatner. However they might need some help from Benzaie, Sad Panda and Fat Grandma.

    I’m not sure making the monkey Jamaican was the right decision.

    FIRST.

    Also thank you Phelous, I’d been hoping you would do another animated review. Those are by far your best ones, and this one had me loling so much. Looking forward to part 2!

      *edit* If nobody was laughing there head off in the studio during recording or the person in charge of the recording equipment, then I don’t know. I would have been the one laughing my head off or badly trying to hold back my laugh and be like “Are we sure we should be using this voice for the cat?” The Princess singing is so awkward moment. I think they where lazy and did not want to come up with lyrics and just go lalalal. The animation background look really nice. The house falling over edit was hilarious.

      I love the voice over you guys do on characters.

    a great review, you guys wok so well with Brad, but… did you get all the CA jokes out of your system yet? I’m not defending them, but this has gotten kinda old and can come off as bitter for some people… idk, maybe I’m alone on this.

    Yeah Phelan! Stop half-assing effects already! Let’s face it. Phelan is ruined.

    Anyway, in the original story, the father leaves only the cat to his son, explaining it can talk and to follow its advice. the CAT is the one who actually asks for boots originally. So yeah. This is NOT the true story of Puss ‘N Boots at all! (because that was the only thing wrong here, obviously). The princess sneaking to dance at a bar reminded me a lot of the movie Antz. I’m not sure if they were really taking the idea from there though, as I think I’m the only person who actually remembers Antz. She even kinda looks a little like Princess Bala. Or maybe it’s just the thorax. I dunno.

    The Live action Shatner stuff made me uncomfortable ;____; I don’t like seeing actors used like this. But then I heard his dub work.. and that made me even more uncomfortable. This movie is a giant mashup of discomfort!

    Benzaie, I want your Garrus hoodie. A lot. and I was WONDERING where the heck you went! But making actual movies is a pretty good excuse so I’ll give you that one.

      Ever heard of The Twelve Dancing Princesses? It’s a Grimm tale about a bunch of rich teenagers who snuck out at night to have underground dance parties with strange boys. Any suitor who can’t find where they go at night gets executed. Sounds like a great plot for Hostel 3.

    I saw another review of this movie, and you guys are far funnier. Grant it that this movie is confusing as hell and its pacing is everywhere. Although I think the best one out of you guys was Ash, he did a great job with those boot and even more so than William Catner.

    From what I have seen so far, this movie is just so cringe worthy due to the ‘art’ style, voice acting and what they call music. The use of the Kazoo and Xylophone was nothing but pain on the ears, and now I cant stop thinking of Shatner voicing Winnie the Pooh when he is either drunk or on meds.

    LOL this was terrible! Indeed the animation is quite good, but the designs… blech!   And notice the horrifying hybrid of an arara parrot and a tucan at the desk of the narrator? It’s best left to the imagination as to how that hybrid was born…

    Glad to see you, Linkara and “Fat Grandma” are still on good terms and welcome back Brad ^ ^. Also although I’m not usually one to request/suggest, considering I know how annoying it could come off sometimes, but it’d be fun if Brad did a DVD-R Hell episode with you guys where you look at the TMNT: Operation Blueline Video. Also it’d give Phelous a chance to dust off his Shredder costume,lol.

    Contrary to JahLis, I say keep on ripping with those CA jokes, nothing helps you get over a suffocating old job experience by making fun of everyone and everything related. XD

    This movie is important business. It deserves RESPECT…even if it is pretty lousy….

    I expect a more businesslike review.

    I can’t really defend the songs here, but I can at least explain them. They’re both from operas, the movie just gave them a more modern beat for some reason. The first one I don’t know the name of, but I know it’s a go-to audition piece for sopranos because it’s a good piece for showing off your range. This is the reason for all the la-ing as well, the opera version is just the singer hitting notes. The second song is the Habanera from Carmen. It’s a fairly well-known opera tune that’s written in French. This may be why the American version chose not to translate it, but I certainly can’t rule out laziness.

      I attend the opera regularly. This movie just HAD to pick two of my favorite arias to ruin.

      Yeah, I knew that song was French but it comes off lazy rather than being true to the original version of the song when it’s just sung randomly in the middle of an English dub.

      and i was thinking they did a “re dub” or the song, and changed all the lyrings to “la la la” instead of the french original.
      but i was wrong.

    • markiangooley

      The first la-la song is part of the second of the big arias for the Queen of the Night in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, beginning with words meaning “the vengeance of Hell boils in my heart.” The bit they use is from the high many-notes bit on the words “meine Tochter nimmermehr” (my daughter nevermore — unless her daughter kills Sarastro, that is). I’m going to think of this as ludicrously funny so I won’t be enraged.

    I just realized today that Obscurus Lupa channel on blip is now Movie Nights. Right when I noticed a bunch of uploaded movies, they were uploaded to this site on the same day :D. Everything you guys do is gold. I want more “choose your own adventure” video series, but I know you have an important obligation to your patreon base. That being said, I was really glad to see and hear about Benzai and his concurrent life. I never watched his stuff, but I’m really glad he’s making movies for French people that watch TV, kind of like Lindsay writing for American TV. I also appreciated the cameos a lot, not just for seeing people, but for the extravaganza for this episode that you pulled off. I almost watched the WC5 review with Mike J before I remembered that this episode had “a” cameo. Too bad Mike J wasn’t in this one.

    Please never stop doing “Phelous and the Movies,” Phelan. I think your best ones are the animated ones– or at least the ones that allow you to do a lot of voice overs and play with effects.  ;P

    Shatner sounds like he was angrily shouting his voicebox to shreds for taking this role (when he’s at home or wherever) then he did the cat’s voice with the leftovers of his voicebox

    Also, it scratches my brain. I might need that looked at now.

    I never thought we’d see another crappy CG animated movie being reviewed by Phelous, Lupa, and Brad.

    Marvel should have sued Phase 4 Films for using the logo of one of their books.

    The music in the opening credits alone should tell you already that this movie’s gonna be a pile of crap.

    Linkara lets Fat Grandma onboard Comicron One?  That would be like if the Adam West Batman gave Aunt Harriet a ride in the Batmobile.

    Puss ‘n Boot in this movie reminds me of Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy if the filmmakers gave little to no respect for his character.

    Exactly what were Benzaie & Sad Panda doing all of last year? I barely saw either of them at all.

    So sofar Christopher Walken, Antonio Bandaras, & William Shatner have all played Puss in Boots.

    Will Shatner visibly reading off cue cards is pretty funny. I can just hear them saying “We really wanted Sterling Holloway or Jim Cummings, but the first was dead & the second wouldn’t give us the time of day. How well can you pull off the Pooh voice?”

    Thanks for ruining Mozart’s “Queen of the Night” & Bizet’s “L’Amour Est un Oiseau Rebelle,” Princess. Thankssss…..

    Welcome to the Uncanny Valley. Population: This movie.

    “Croissanthole,” sayeth Sad Baguette. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Fat Gran’ma can wait. I want to see if Linkara can pull off Raymond Reddington.

    That Monkey could be Haitian. Kinda racist of them either way.

    Have you ever watched The Mighty Boosh? The Catner monstrosity in this sounds (and looks) disturbingly like the Crack Fox.

    I chalk it up to finding the movie, rewating it over & over, writing a script, schedule cameos, get everyone to memorize their lines & read them without cracking up, lots & lots of editing & special effects, editing in cameos from previous reviews for Metalolz, etc. Unless you’re Spoony or Little Kuriboh, who spend almost every waking hour of the day on Twitter.

    I remember this movie. My sister saw it on Netflix, clicked on it just because she thought it looked hilariously bad, and then called me to come watch it with her because of how much of a trainwreck it was. It was the part where she said “The queen is trailer trash and I think the king is dead everytime he’s on the screen,” that roped me in.

    Seriously though Phelan, you really half assed it. You didn’t get to even one quarter of an ass.

    I hope this isn’t some kind of last hurrah or anything. Seeing this camaraderie and good humor would get me all welled up if I could stop giggling for the entire video.

    Great entry into the Phelous video universe.  The Shatner-ized ‘interpretation’ of the fabled feline seems to remind me of the creepy, old, pedophile neighbor in Family Guy, mixed-in with the talking owl that followed you around in Kings Quest V.

    And, yes, those words are usually incomprehensible on that long string of high notes, but they’re repeated understandably shortly afterwards in the aria. More than you wanted to know.

    I…actually feel kind of bad for Shatner. I detest the guy for being such a drama queen his entire life, but he just looks so miserable during the “exclusive interview.” Like, someone get him a strong drink or something.

    Biggest question of this movie is Why does Shatner do that voice? If it was to try to sound younger it just comes off as…well lets just say “Too Smart for Strangers” comes to mind.

    Am I the only one thinking the band Moriarty did an awesome job with the music? If so, should I feel bad about it? Don’t bother answering, ’tis but a rhetorical question.

    Also, the 3D Demon Bitch was meant to look like the actress that dubs her. Here’s a pic :

    Shatner is from Quebec. I know he hasn’t lived here for years but if you study a language for that long then you don’t lose it that easily. Why the heck does he look like he has no idea what he’s saying? XD
