Indeimaus : please for the love of god give us a Mr Plinkett Wish Upon review movie dads

Andreas Nordvall : "It was cute, it was pretty smartly written and enjoyable and I actually liked Ben Stiller in it. It's not a movie i would recommend to anyone." -Mike Stoklasa

ImperfectWeapons : Something I love about RLM is that I can strongly agree and strongly disagree with the same person more than once in the same video. Because they have actual opinions. It's great.

kate : i need a 14 hour video of jay reviewing and gushing over depressing/creepy/john waters-esque movies and mike blankly staring

Dan Bollen : For some reason it blows my mind that Mike and Jay don't see every movie together.

Matches Malone : All jokes aside, when is Max Landis coming to discuss Bright with you guys?

TheCandyHole : I know why RLM was disturbed by people who consider internet celebrities friends when they've never met, RIGHT MY ONLY TWO FRIENDS??? Plz respond Mike & Jay

outloudth : the good cinematography in "Split" is because M. Night got the cinematographer from "It Follows" That's why the shots weren't flat

TatteredKing : You guys are my parasocial friends

cso2040 : 48:10 "I think Mr. Plinkett needs to go through this movie" Yessss! oh, ohhh, ohhhh.... I think I just came inside my pantaloons.

Eric Smith : The conscious avoidance of anything John Wick-related is disturbing

James Minglis : Ironic that a parasocial relationship is what most of us have with RLM

Dangerz Own : I dunno why, but Mike looks much happier and healthier, or at least less hungover and/or depressed in this one, good for you Mike, ya fraudulent hack you!

Nick Shuler : the real Aubrey Plaza story is that she met the casting director for Parks and Rec before the show even entered development, she was introduced to the creators, and they created a new character designed to be played by her. the scripts hadn't been written yet, so the character was just named Aubrey.

Benish Ben : You better review The Boss Baby, it's the best film of all time

Challin Wake : I am completely hyped to see James McAvoy growling and snarling trying to hurt an invincible Bruce Willis.

Noname Whatsoever : 'I think Mr Plinkett needs to go through this movie...' AW MY GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWD. It's pizza rolls and homicide time again.

Snack Time : I bought Wish Upon immediately after watching this. It's comical how absolute dog shit this movie is. Everyone out there buy it immediately.

Quitch : Aubrey Plaza is perfectly cast in Legion, a short superhero series on FX. She gets to do the crazy.

Mr.47 : 25:50 Hey, I follow you guys, but you don't know I exist, that was a low blow

LeedleDuck : The scene in Wish Upon where the dad is playing the saxophone had me in actual tears

clamstain : mugs instead of beer bottles? What is this, Half in the Tea Bag?

tylerdurden3891 : @35:15 "I like movies where people are trapped in a hopeless situation and have to figure a way out". Hey Mike, ever heard of a movie called "Real Life"? There's only one way out: Suicide.

Filth : The world... is changing...


john nunya : The modern age Siskel and Ebert! This is how I find great movies!!

Lee : I'm pretty sure X-Men 12 is the next movie, at least if you count Deadpool.

Normonaut : can we get a 10 hour Jay laugh track?

Doctor Handsome : Okay, I haven't seen Wish Upon. How was Sherilyn Fenn getting her hair caught in the garbage disposal supposed to be life-threatening? The hair wasn't choking her. Her head wouldn't fit in that hole. The disposal would just pull her hair out of her scalp, which would hurt and make her look funny, but in no way be deadly. Am I missing something?

Bryce Baker : Are you guys saying M. Night Shyamalan subverted your expectations

Kandarian : I saw Raw when it was screening at TIFF and after the movie there was a panel with the director. Julia Ducournau came out looking like a supermodel and spent half an hour laughing and swearing and telling production stories, she's fantastic.

Escapist26 : So last night right after watching HITB I watched WISH UPON and loved it! The acting, decision making and direction are so bizarre! The acting made us laugh at loud at parts. After the movie I noticed....the screenwriter follows me on twitter and ive spoken with her before! She's really nice and I reached out and asked her a few questions about the movie and she answered with good humor. I think a lot was lost in translation from the writing to the direction. -Mike- I asked her about the beginning and what was lost in translation is that the daughter dies when she is riding on the bike and the mom wishes her back. Look forward to part 2 of the 2017 roundup

Bulwark1911 : *Best outro yet!*

Chip Izumi : What does Mike got against primate movies?

guar dian : 24:57 "She's very sardonic, and miserable. It's her face, too." Aubrey Plaza is Mike Stoklasa's soulmate

Barry-Allen The-Flash : After the bit at 22, 23 minutes in, I kinda just want an extra-long Nerd Crew episode where they discuss how they would rewrite The Last Jedi now. Those 3 could crowd-screenwrite the SHIT out of that movie :P

101darkeyes101 : jay, we know you like fire walk with me.. any chance you're gonna' talk about twin peaks the return?

BringYaLunch : Needs more Rich Evans

Barnacl3Boi : I can't believe there's an M. Night Shyamalan cinematic universe

Benjamin Kelln : Mike, War For the Planet of the Apes was so good... you’d watch Jurassic World, but not that?

ExtrackterYT : Mike's interest in the ape movies are the same I feel towards the Star Wars stuff... It's amazing how little one can care for something that was loved before.

Badger Bones : Still waiting on the Ferdinand review

Neil Wilson : These guys usually get a like within 20 seconds from me. Not because I'm a fanboy, but because they will do something genuinely funny.

Jon Walsh : When you hacks inevitably hit 1 million subscribers by the year 2049, will we get a special Best of Red Letter Media video?

John Lee : A para-social relationship? It's nothing like our friendship, Mike and Jay!

MagnumTriumph : The Peter Jackson King Kong was really great! ...from my point of view from when I was 12 years old....

superbus starodub : "white privilege" no thanks

Mesie Lepush : Mike!!!, you do not want to watch Planet of the apes movies, but watch (and liked) F#ing Jurassic World?????? You hack!!!

Shoob MacGruber : It may be a tv series, but you guys should watch (and perhaps review) Black Mirror I think you’ll enjoy it

SUBJECT TO CHANGE : Oh boy! A reason to remove the noose from my neck!
