    Sweet review. Pretty sure I’ve seen bits and pieces of this movies when I was a kid. I didn’t think this movie would be any good but it doesn’t look too bad. Plus it has some familiar faces in it which I didn’t expect.

    • Cecil:

      Thanks 🙂

      It’s silly and rather entertaining. Not nearly as bad as many people think. There are some genuinely funny moments.

  • They also used the PKE Meters props in “They Live”. Maybe theres some rule that says Ghostbusters props can only be reused in movies that star wrestlers.

  • Mehe:

    Hey, Cecil, since this was wrestling related, i linked you on my blog and on the wrestling subreddit i go to.

    This was an excellent ep!

  • Cristiona:

    “Shep Ramsey”? When you first said his name, it really sounded like “Chef Ramsey”. Now I’m picturing the whole thing with Gordon Ramsey.

    Although you didn’t mention him, I can only imagine that Larry Miller was a blast as the boss. He always seems to be in mediocre films like this, but he’s always fun.

    • Cecil:

      Heh, I didn’t even think of that. I think if it was Suburban Commando with Chef Ramsey it would have a lot more swears in it.

      I was running low on time so I opted to cut out my stuff on Larry Miller since it wasn’t anything great. (and considering the movies I do, I’m sure he’ll pop up again in one of them) I love the guy, he’s one of my favorite comedians. He always plays a great jerk in the movies he is in.

  • So the After Burner game won’t let the kid fire phasers while in hyperspace, and he has to counter with a photon torpedo. I guess after ripping off obvious bits from “Star Wars” and “Aliens” they decided to go for subtlety by ripping off some dialogue “Star Trek: The Motion Picture”.

  • Total guilty pleasure for me. It is funny how well Hulk portrays an “alien”. Also, it does strike me how many things in the movie start making weird sense from a comedy perspective. Like… where’s the main bad guy’s genitals when he transforms? Well he just got hit with a strength-enhancing robo arm. Where do you think they went? 😉 Or the mime? He’s practicing his craft (at night and in other areas) before the next day when he has to earn his wages. Afterburner? Well that’s just a game smuggled to earth so aliens can find themselves a competent starfighter pilot who… hang on, I seem to have gotten my notes mixed up.

    As for the envelop thing at the beginning, I couldn’t help but think of a joke from King of the Hill. (changed slightly here to help you get what I’m thinking):

    “Let that be a warning, or next time I’ll aim for your hand and hit your face!”

    Still, good review. 😉

  • scorchx3000:

    Aw come on, you left out Undertaker saying “You’re a dead man Ramsey.” in the kids voice

  • Vitus:

    I love the Hulkster but I don’t think I’ve ever seen any of his movies from beginning to end. do recognize bits and pieces though, probably from a lot of youtube clips and/or just repressed childhood memories.

  • Jr.:

    I WAS FROZEN TODAY!

  • Gimmlet:

    Holy shit the mime looks like mistake .

  • mogens:

    1.the I WAS FROZEN TODAY line is geting old now
    2.this is a way better movie than mr.nanny

    • Cecil:

      1 – Not that it is getting old but everyone knows it so it was senseless for me to include. That’s pretty much synonymous with the Nostalgia Critic. It’s one of his landmark liners.
      2 – Mr Nanny is so corny. They really wanted to make Hogan a family star.

  • Dar:

    Thank you for the review.

    I admit to loving this movie ever since seeing it back when it came out on vhs.

    It’s great in the same way that “Hercules In New York” is great: it doesn’t take itself too seriously and has lots of funny lines and good kid-friendly action.

    It’s definitely Hogan’s best.
