That’s still technically a comment 😛
Technically, you just made one 😛
Oh of course it was Sub-Zero’s fault New Brunswick and Nova Scotia were hit with so snow this year it all makes perfect sense now
HUH. Even this is a more original idea then some certain online game show and it didn’t cost $90,000.
I’m not quite sure I get what you’re referring to.
Channel Awesome’s $90,000 funded game show which took soooo long to produce and film and pretty much sucked, Brad Jones was the only thing decent in the entire thing(if he was not there i would of switched off 5 minutes in), I put $100 into the Indiegogo thing for a tshirt and dvd combo that never arrived either :/
A meta-review? Fair Enough… Happy April Fools’ Whatever Day, I guess…
This is genius.
Mac and Me: The GREATEST review ever done by Phelous!
I actually enjoy your Mac and me review. It is far from your best one, but the awkwardness gives it a unique charm. Your best reviews are all of your Uwe Boll reviews. You mix with him so well, you always get great jokes from those terrible films. After that would be your Resident Evil movie reviews. Too bad the “Final Chapter” has been delayed, so it will be years before you review it. I love your joke making fun of that awful Nostalgia Cricket joke in Doug’s anniversary reviews. It was clear that he was going easy on those movies because he made them. It was like watching Nostalgia Critic lite. If you reviewed the anniversary films (especially To Boldly Flee) I bet you would tear them a new asshole (hint hint). You are definitely my favorite reviewer on the web, no one has a style as clever, funny, and original as you. The only reviewer I can think of that is similar is my brother who is a huge fan and made a one shot personal review that was nearly identical to your style. Its funny how being a fan of a critic can rub off on your style (cough)every AVGN and Nostalgia Critic fanboy(cough). I hope you never retire, you were a Nostalgic part of my teenage years. If you do retire though, to go on to make an actual web series, make sure to kill Phelous off “for realzies”, that way he will never come back to life (unless it is through convoluted and half assed means).
So this bootleg review on youtube actually was an april’s fools day joke. Well played, Phelous, well played.
As for reviews I don’t think that Mac and Me is the best but I miss your horror reviews and awkwardness of the early videos, they had a certain charm to them.
But anyway, thanks for your contribution in a form of internet videos, they constantly cheer me up.
Ah haha, I was just testing some stuff out for streaming on youtube. I do actually plan to do a stream of bootleg games eventually.
I can’t wait for your “Phelous and Me Review” Review in about five years!
A “Phelous and Me Review” was destined to be made. Or maybe it always existed, lost in space and time somewhere.
I swear you’ve changed so much over the years, and yet I kept getting confused between 2008!Phelous and 2015!Phelous. Maybe that’s just my terrible eyesight.
Cool april fools review! It’s cool to see how much you have developed from then to now. Always felt you were one of the most consistently funny reviewers on the internet. Congratulations! Keeping my fingers crossed that a To Boldly Flee review is coming someday.
Remember that other time you reviewed your Mac and Me review with Allison? Good times…
Haha well that was a commentary but yes, the Mac and Me review can never have enough other videos made about it.
Me, 2 weeks ago, rewatching your reviews. “It would be funny if he reviewed his oldest reviews.”
Me, today: ::Head explode::
Between these aliens, porno ET, & Nukie, I still can’t decide who’s the creepiest.
All this MacDonalds advertising makes me want to….Watch the 5th Element.
Hey Phelan, are you gonna review Friended, or would it be too redundant, since you;ve already done 3 movies just like it?
The Skype movie? Yeah I’ll probably check it out.
Cant wait for the Phelous and Me Review part 2. Where the review of the review gets reviewed.
Gotta hate those random dance routines that happen at McDonalds every time I go and get a Big Mac and Coka Cola.
The thing I do miss though, is Phelous needs to get back to reviewing bad slasher/horror movies. Although maybe something that is more interesting than Wrong Turn 6, maybe Wrong Turn 7: Something Mutant Hillbilly Something who cares.
I see you have the Ghostbuster’s HQ set up on the table behind you. Does this mean we can expect to see you review The Real Ghostbusters sometime down the line? 🙂
The toys or the series? Well it’s yes to both anyway, heh.
Yay! I was hoping you’d do more episodes after the one where they bust the Christmas ghosts.
It’s interesting that you find your first review bad. You were one of the few reviewers who I liked off the bat. There are a lot of people who I like now, but dismissed as awful when they started out only to re-discover them later. You, on the other hand, went from good, to great, to meh, to amazing, to pretty damn good (where you are now). You’re my favorite reviewer after Brad (I’m sure you understand), so keep it up!
*looks at timestamps* o__o
That was… impressive.
I guess you can say after the color rebalance the M&M review now looks… fair enough.
Dat snow tho. Envying you so much right now.
This was amazing!
Even though I see why you are harsh on yourself but I honestly love your first review.
It was alot better and well thought out then most reviewers first take-
-Like Nostalgia Critics and Jontron had Awful first reviews
Never seen this movie before…rarly hear about it…look like an ET copy story somewhat but more aliens? Time to go look at the old review.
For what it’s worth, I think Prom Night 2 was the best Phelous review ever…Gingerdead man is a close second. Mac and Me looks like kind of a whack movie(never seen or heard of it)…but lil’ 2008 Phelous tackled it bravely and admirably.
so…..this is the Phelous version of Stephen Colbert’s Formidable Opponent? neat.
So when are we going to get a commentary track about the makings of the review of the review of Mac and Me?
Honestly your review of Mortal Comedy is probably the 2nd best video you’ve ever done, next to the He-Man Christmas special. My friends and I can’t stop saying “What?!”
Great work! I do hope you will make some more horror movie reviews in the future as well… there is something very cathartic in making fun of something that is meant to be scary (although I understand if you want to try new stuff as well! I like you contribution to Movie Nights!).
Has it been 7 years? The blink of an eye and yet an eternity on the Internet. The only thing that really has changed over the years has been the production value and you keep getting funnier. No foolin’, you do a great job and never get a “real job”, as it’s a trap!
Nice idea for an April Fools episode. Kinda reminds me of how The Nostalgia Critic started his Blues Brothers 2000 review be remaking the beginning of his Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue review (his first regular episode).
This was a great April Fools Joke Phelous.
You truly are the King of Meta!
Phunny stuph. Don’t recall anyone else in 2008 making these types of videos with a HD camera and occasional special effects, besides AngryJoe maybe. Aside from the slow, whisper delivery its: OK. Really OK.
So Mike Michaud let you become a member of the site despite practically everyone disliking the video, only to boot you off 6 years later because he now doesn’t give a shit about anyone but Doug. People change I guess.
Meta jokes about the meta jokes? I feel like you’re just one step from getting to far! Keep doing your thing, i love your videos and type of humour!
“Mac and Me is still Phelous’ best review.” 😉
Because of nukie…………
