Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 8

We’re back for another dose of reading you the fevered rantings of the deeply, comically irrational. Jason “Chewie” Slate and Bill Bloodworth from the Magic: The Gathering podcast; The Mana Pool rejoin us, along with James Carter of Cane and Rinse, GameBurst’s Jerome McIntosh and friend of the show Derrick Ritchie. As well as more awful Amazon reviews for great movies we also look at films whose titles got turned into something extraordinary during the translation, and a really alarmingly specific Japanese breakdown of the characters in FRIENDS. We ended up recording three hours of this stuff so expect a Vol. 9 at some point in the next few months when we need some serious laughs again. Remember you can read these Bad Reviews daily on the @AmznMovieRevws Twitter feed.

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 7

After the heaviness of Batman Punches Superman and the depth of The Hero’s Journey, let’s all take a break for some very silly words. James Carter of Cane and Rinse and Paul Shotton join us to cover the random lunacy that was the Netflix Summary Bug. We do some Amazon reviews and finish off with a bunch of toy nightmares and some of the most ill-conceived children’s playthings of all time, including of course, RobertCop.

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 6

[SOEE #87] To see in the new year and take a brief respite from Star Wars we’re doing another round of reading out some of the most irrational, sarcastic and hilarious movie reviews from the @AmznMovieRevws twitter feed. Along with this is a series of dramatic readings from many sources, most notably the fourth Fifty Shades of Grey book from the ongoing billionaire pervert saga; Grey. Joining us from The Mana Pool (a Magic: The Gathering podcast that we guested on) Jason Chewie Slate, and Bill Bloodworth, and their buddy from Card Advantage; Aaron LaCluyze. Once again, don’t drive or operate heavy machinery while listening to this one. We don’t want to be responsible for any mishaps incurred while laughing hysterically. http://schoolofmovies.podbean.com/mf/play/szmnjw/BadReviewsAgainstHumanity-Vol6.mp3Podcast: Play in new window |...

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 5

[SOEE #86] This episode comprises previously unheard segments from our Vol. 3 recording, which was entirely based on sarcastic reviews for frequently absurd products. There’s a lot more backstage chat and bungled attempts at organizing the readings into a game. It will make more sense if you listen in conjunction with Vol. 3. Check out the original Twitter account that inspired these shows: @AmznMovieRevws edited by Joseph Grabinski who features in this episode. Joseph is joined by Joshua Garrity and James Carter from Cane and Rinse, Jerome McIntosh of Gameburst and Player 1 from the Cartridge Bros. podcast.

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 4

[SOEE #85] Taking a break from Disney for a while Bad Reviews returns in style. If, for some reason you haven’t heard the first three, go back through the podcast feed and find them. They are some of the funniest podcasting experiences ever. For the uninitiated this is a mix of funny, sarcastic, baffling and occasionally facepalm-inducing Amazon reviews. This episode combines both the Bad Reviews Live session recorded at Drift-Con 2015 and the previously unheard parts of our Vol. 2 recording. A huge thank you to the various guests over these shows: Neil Taylor of GameBurst, James Carter and Joshua Garrity of Cane and Rinse, Lorin Grieve of A Year of Steam, James Batchelor of Bond & Beyond and Rare Replayed, Will Parkes from our community and of course my wife and co-host Sharon Shaw.

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 3

This week, we tracked down some of the funniest reviews all over the internet for all kinds of products, not just movies and not just Amazon. The main reason was variety but we also had the pleasure of Joseph Grabinski the editor of the @AmznMovieRevws Twitter feed as a guest so we wanted to present him and his followers with something they might not have read yet. It was a packed show; as you might imagine this format has been insanely popular and everyone wanted a piece of the action. Our other guests included (returning from previous Volumes) Joshua Garrity and James Carter from Cane and Rinse, Jerome McIntosh of Gameburst (pitching up for his first go at B.R.A.H.) and for the first time on our show, from the Cartridge Bros. podcast it’s the mysterious fellow known only as “Player 1” WARNING!: Do not attempt to drive, lift weights or engage in sexual intercourse while listening to this episode. You may have a fatal mishap from laughing too hard. In fact this is the first podcast I’m putting a general health warning on: It may be the funniest thing you will ever hear and thus break funny bones everywhere, leaving life by comparison dull and grey. Jerome had to resort to his inhaler in the end, though he assures me this was worth it. Be sure to find us, follow us, like us and email us.

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 2

[SOEE #83] We’re back for more incisive, scathing and occasionally insane critique from some strange people. The first installment was met with adulation from everyone. In fact this is an official warning not to listen while driving, your uncontrollable fits of hysterical laughter could result in catastrophic car pile-ups. Once again these mini-review snippets were gleaned from the Twitter feed @AmznMovieRevws who very kindly retweeted our show for us. For this episode Sharon and I recruited Neil Taylor of GameBurst, James Carter of Cane and Rinse and Lorin Grieve of the Digital Drift Community.Once again our reading is a cocktail of the shocking, competitive play of Cards Against Humanity with the theatrical performance of the much missed GameSpot YouTube show Feedbackula.

Bad Reviews Against Humanity: Vol. 1

[SOEE #82] Amazon has a long tradition of unreasonable, miserable and occasionally downright cretinous user reviews. The Twitter feed @AmznMovieRevws is a treasure trove of some of the silliest of these. For this episode Sharon and I got together with former Digital Cowboy Paul Shotton and Cane and Rinse alumni Josh Garrity and we had a bit of a game. I passed out fifteen reviews each and we competed for fifteen rounds to see who could read the most facepalm-inducing nugget of critical appraisal. Prepare thy sides, for they shall split. Some of these reviewers come up with the most splutteringly random of reasons why they don’t like movies that are largely agreed upon to be rather great. I shall definitely be revisiting this format.
