Immerse, my friend. Let it wash over you.

Six seasons of uncritical plaudits for every film under the sun was a magnificent setup for Tim's excoriating Ant-Man review.

I Ate Those Food (Old Lunch), Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:19 (three months ago) link

I got into it through the spin-off, Decker.

Chris L, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:34 (three months ago) link

Oh god there are Oscar specials and a 12 hour long youtube clip ;_; I am going to have to watch it, I'm afraid. These guys are unreal.

Uptown VONC (Le Bateau Ivre), Tuesday, 2 July 2019 17:48 (three months ago) link

didn't realize it until I went back but Tim's speech was a lot less garbled pre-brain surgery

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:03 (three months ago) link

for some reason the Oscar Specials are not on the Adult Swim streaming channel

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:18 (three months ago) link

i watched the first episode of this afew days ago.....does it get better?

at first it just seems like a shitty half-assed parody that does not feature any actual jokes, but as time goes on, the layers of comedy really accrue in an ingenious way

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:19 (three months ago) link

probably said this in the other thread but Tim's explanation of why he's paying for Ayaka's abortion despite being a staunch pro-lifer is the purest distillation of the right-wing ethos that I've ever heard

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:20 (three months ago) link

he just... he wasn't going to be in that situation

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:22 (three months ago) link

how come there are no animated gifs of Tim's guitar wanking faces, that shit is comedy gold

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:24 (three months ago) link

choices have to be on the table

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:27 (three months ago) link

i watched the first episode of this afew days ago.....does it get better? or do you just have to immerse yourself in the voib for a few episodes before you can get into it?

I don't know how to explain this to you but the "Stump the Buff" segment where Tim nails Gregg on the Star Trek/San Francisco trivia question is just as dramatic as the scene in Breaking Bad where Hank figures out who Heisenberg is

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:34 (three months ago) link

you must be talking about Star Trek II

Οὖτις, Tuesday, 2 July 2019 18:39 (three months ago) link

which as Trekkie and non-Trekkie alike knows, takes place in San Francisco

This playlist seems to comprise the definitive chronology of the On Cinema-verse (countdown to exasperated sic post detailing, at length,what's missing from said hi playlist): https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRT5PdjVF-ipL5SPXbmZXzfBchXVR8JTo

(No idea where that rogue 'hi' came from so that would be sic gripe #1., I'm sure.)

I graciously accept your thanks for my recommending that playlist to you

I completely don’t get this

Popcorn Classic is a really useful term for a certain kind of movie.

Daniel_Rf, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 09:37 (three months ago) link

I thank u, sic, although I spent a long while watching a different, much less complete YT playlist (after starting on the even less complete playlist on that one website) so I just wanted to make sure no one else made my stupid mistake. I give this latest playlist five bags of popcorn and a hundred cups of soda.

I Ate Those Food (Old Lunch), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 14:28 (three months ago) link

The later seasons of Decker aren’t on youtube btw, but iirc they stop interacting directly with On Cinema episodes so it doesn’t stand out badly

(The two Ant-Man movies also don’t appear in the playlist, but do very much affect On Cinema video and twitter content )

forks if you were starting at an early point, try dropping in on a S4 or 5 episode, when the Tim vs Gregg tone is better established & there’s loads of backstory, to see if it pings any better with you

quelle sprocket damage (sic), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 18:16 (three months ago) link

eh I think starting in the beginning obscures what a slow build this show is

Todd Rundgren appears in the last episode of Decker...I knew that voice was familiar!!

"Why was he fired, did he forget to wipe down the microwave?"

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 18:34 (three months ago) link

if someone "completely doesn't get" the show at the beginning, pushing on through twenty episodes of more of the same is probably going to bore and annoy them

oh yeah, the full real-time Trial Of Tim Heidecker coverage isn't on youtube either, just 10-15 minutes highlights from each day (iirc that's all I watched, then switched over for the full verdict)

quelle sprocket damage (sic), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 18:41 (three months ago) link

the trial is astonishingly great. you HAVE to watch the full thing and not just the highlights.

the satire of the kind of fake fancy junk food you get in north america - e.g. everything coming with truffle aoili - was very good

bookmarkflaglink (jim in vancouver), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 19:16 (three months ago) link

I would say you can watch highlights of the trial until Tim fires his attorney and starts defending himself, then switch to the full thing

Screamin' Jay Gould (The Yellow Kid), Wednesday, 3 July 2019 21:14 (three months ago) link

no!!!!!!!

a couple of my old acquaintances recently started a video game podcast. I listened to one episode and thought about On Cinema the whole time. one of the guys has probably played 20,000 hours of video games but has absolutely nothing insightful to say about them, it's so spot on that I've almost come to view Tim & Gregg as real people

frogbs, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 22:07 (three months ago) link

Has anyone started an On On Cinema at the Cinema podcast yet

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 22:35 (three months ago) link

I just watched shakey's clip the other day. It wouldn't be nearly as beautiful without the interviewer's overt lack of interest in Gregg's banalities.

What have you watched / listened to so far?

Me, I just bore witness to the cancellation of Decker season 3 this evening, so it's difficult to put myself back in the headspace of several years ago when I watched a handful of On Cinemas and said 'IDGI'. Suffice it say, I'm glad I got over myself.

The effects at Dracula's castle were a whole 'nother level of special. I particularly liked the table that followed Gregg around for a while.

I still miss Tim’s ‘I love this movie!’ from the previous theme song. Simpler times :(

Joe on the board, having to take notes and write financial reports, that will not go wrong at all.

imo the movie is incredibly awesome if you're an on cinema-head. i went with someone who doesn't know on cinema that well but is a tim heidecker fan and she wasn't quite as enthused as i was but also it must be weird to be in a theater full of people laughing very loudly at in-jokes you haven't heard before

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 11 October 2019 18:30 (five days ago) link

i went with someone new to On Cinema and she loved it, but she likes Tim & Eric and i'd shared a couple episodes with her beforehand that i thought offered a good window into the universe (S4E3 and S6E2)

blows with the wind donors (crüt), Friday, 11 October 2019 18:36 (five days ago) link

Would watch when my brother and friend get to town this weekend but they are among the T&E heads who have yet to become On Cinema heads so it seems like they need a proper immersion first. Maybe I can convince them to spend 84 hours binging everything that's happened thus far.

Furter-Bursting Tater Squirter (Old Lunch), Friday, 11 October 2019 18:40 (five days ago) link

how many times do you get to hear "Empty Bottle" during those 84 hours

tim is on the newest ep of chapo trap house. is in character as "tim heidecker" for the first 10 minutes or so

The Dekkar guys are wise to cover something so closely tied to cinema.

Who was it who said "Reboots are always better"?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Friday, 11 October 2019 19:34 (five days ago) link

yeah, let's imagine they worked it up for the On Cinema Oscar Special, and presented it earnestly to Tim & Gregg at a meeting, only to be let down politely & gently

now let's play big lunch take little lunch (sic), Friday, 11 October 2019 19:40 (five days ago) link

"unfortunately we have to do a horrible cover of bohemian rhapsody instead"

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 11 October 2019 19:42 (five days ago) link

the footage from the end of The Trial in the movie, with Axiom & Manuel lightly corpsing behind Tim's victory speech, was a sweet reminder that they get at least a little bit of the joke

now let's play big lunch take little lunch (sic), Friday, 11 October 2019 19:44 (five days ago) link

there are def some moments on the 4th special where the camera cuts to them and they're clearly laughing

frogbs, Friday, 11 October 2019 19:45 (five days ago) link

I think on either reddit or FB someone asked Tim how he met Axiom and he said "At Guitar Center" haha

and they met manuel because he was already axiom's friend. at the metrograph screening i was at tim went on for a minute about how amazing manuel is

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 11 October 2019 20:15 (five days ago) link

(iirc they actually found axiom by looking through imdb headshots)

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 11 October 2019 20:15 (five days ago) link

do they ever explain why Axiom & Manuel have such dedicated loyalty to Tim? he's not jerks to *them*, but he does hog the spotlight & stole Axiom's song.

frogbs, Friday, 11 October 2019 20:19 (five days ago) link

tim actually explained that! whenever tim (the character) is not paying axiom and manuel, they disappear from the show

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 11 October 2019 20:20 (five days ago) link

they mention in the trial that they get a 'stipend' which does explain it but Axiom donating his entire hand is uh

frogbs, Friday, 11 October 2019 20:20 (five days ago) link

BTW, from this interview: the entire film was shot in three days - one in San Bernardino, one for everything in the hotel, and one for Gregg / anything else. They only expected it to be a half-hour web video.
