  1. Simon Pegg is awesome.

    • That interviewer, not so much..

      • Indeed. I think secretly she wants to be a mime. Any CGI wizards out there who can adjust that video a bit? Give her a mime facepaint, mute her audio… presto… interview improved by a 100%.

        • Even when the interviewed people get silly it’s not really the job of the interviewer to try to match their comedic talents by abandoning all pretense of professionalism. She tried to get a second hand date out of a filmed interview, for fooks sake! If it were her first day on the jobit would be her last. Shut up and let the comedian be funny!

  2. Holy Canoli… This is why I love cinemasins.

  3. First Person Zelda was great.

    • Very cool work! I can’t see Zelda fans accepting a jump to FPS mode, but it could be an option maybe? I’d love to try it.

  4. seriously, what happen to the ‘Everything Wrong With” series?

    they used to be pretty funny, however they have fallen off recently.

    I always watch the clip in hopes that they return to their former glory, but am always disappointed.

    • Yeah… that what happens to channels that get monetized. At first they do their videos because it’s fun. But when the money starts rolling in they feel the need to churn out videos in higher and higher volumes, and of course the first thing to go when something gets mass produced for increased revenue is quality.

      • Really? I thought this one was pretty funny. I was laughing the whole time. The Riddick one was kinda bad but maybe thats cuz I hadn’t seen that movie.

        • Yeah, this one was okay, but the tendency is “down”. The worst parts are those when the guy who makes these videos didn’t understand a plot point and chalks it down as a sin.

          • Agreed

      • Yeah I agree,

        feel like the point out a lot of problems with continuity, which is kind of a cop out since almost every movie has those problems.

        • Yeah. Sometimes connecting takes are being shot months apart from each other. If you had to check every minute detail for continuity movies never would get done and their budget would skyrocket.

  5. Aww, Batman just want a hug… :(

  6. I think I’m in love with Rocketeer girl. :D

  7. Monty Python and the Holy Grail as an epic trailer was huge fun… Its tiem I watched it again for all the epic dialogue…. Ni!!!!! etc.

    • Well, it’s my favourite movie ever for a reason. No other comedy movie comes close to the greatness of Holy Grail.

  8. John Green! :D

  9. Haha, CinemaSins, you never fail to make me smile.

  10. Japanese ads… Why are the sexualized “Jewwy Beans” biting the underwear off of each others candy asses? WTF is that elephantiasis kid doing singing about his hard on? Finally, if they make the letter L sound like an R, then why does the “Rainbow” drink get called “Lainbow” in text…right in front of a can that says “Rainbow”? At least the most embarrassing moment in Yoda’s carreer is still in the prequels, but I woulda preferred not to see him hocking noodles…
