I was gonna put this on Twitter but you said it but I’ll say it again: this video coming out today is a Christmas miracle.l!!! At first I didn’t think this video was gonna come out today since you didn’t immediately post it at six but since you pulled an all-nighter guess you must have been tired and went to bed and decided to post it in the morning. I was so excited when this video came on your twitter feed this morning and givin that that was the time I finished opening my new gifts this was a great… Read more »

Yes indeed, this was a nice Christmas gift. It’s also awesome how Tony got some people involved with the movie to cameo as well.

Merry Christmas to everyone here on CA!

Hey Tony, this video was a great christmas gift! A real christmas miracle like you said. Haven’t seen too many new things from you in the last month like this but jeebus this is a real return to form IMO. Can’t wait to continue watching your series.

Don’t have a lot to say but that was just a perfect ending to a great set of reviews. I’m glad this won’t be as longer but I was at disneyworld 2 years ago and had no idea who you where but if I ever go back I’ll be sure to look for you tony. That director is clearly one of the many a-holes in this world. He reminds me of rich Moore the guy who directed wreck it Ralph and the upcoming zootopia but there two different people. I love your work I have so many questions what happened… Read more »

I love the ending. I like the summing up of why so many people return to Disney parks. I also like the way Cine Kyle behaves. I wonder if this is exactly how the real Kyle responded to the movie. The thing about this review that is unpleasant is how unpleasant and gross the movie is. But I understand it has to show this to explain the movie. While I am a midwesterner, I still appreciate and love Disney parks a lot. They are one of my favorite things in the world. And who knows, one day I may live… Read more »

I gotta say, I do like how the thumbnails continuously progress through the videos. Have a very merry Christmas, Jerk.

So does it mean that you are going back to revies Disneyland rides?, that “escape from tomorrow” movie just took advantage of making the movie in Disneyland as their main way to promote the movie, cause it doesnt even have any reason to be made in Disneyland.

The ending was beautiful, and like the (very long-winded) comment said on youtube, is everything the movie wasn’t in the best way.

I’d disagree with one thing in this review – “Escape From Tomorrow” WAS pretentious, in the most lazy and navel-gazing way: taking smug sneering cynicism and dog-in-the-manger mean-spiritedness and pretending that it’s profundity, and the sheer adolescent attitude of ‘provocation’ for its own sake. “Escape From Tomorrow” is a plain nasty, petulant movie and thanks for taking the time to skewer it so comprehensively. Your elucidating the theme of the hollowness of “forced fun” gives it more credit than I would have and also speaks well to your even-handedness. I hope the movie hasn’t poisoned your love of everything else… Read more »

If anything, I’d say it’s made him appreciate them all the more, judging by his spiel at the end about entertainment.

Awesome job, Jerk! I don’t know whether it your skills as a director, the fact that I was so committed to and ecstatic for this small cameo, or both, but this was the first time I’ve ever been happy with my performance and not cringed as soon as I saw myself. I had a small part in a local play a few years ago and I have yet to actually watch the entire taping of it because as soon as I come on stage, my reaction is to shut it off immediately and stop watching. Even seeing my two line… Read more »

I guess that’s a good way to put why people go to Disneyland and the other other Disney Parks. My life is pretty miserable. I have so have so many health issues, I’m a semi-shut in due to that. I live with my parents, I can’t work, I don’t want to go to school. Granted I’m popular and somewhat respected online, but what I’m popular in is considered a butt-moneky hobby (fanfics are made fun of a lot). s Going to Disney Parks brings me joy… the last few years have been tough of on my family (my dad’s kidneys… Read more »

Hooray!! Another video! How come there was such a wait? I just finished binge watching all the videos and was used to follow ups coming soon so this wait was particularly long. Hey Faulty Towers! Sweet! The Sweatbox? 23:35 just wow. Just staggering And it’s great to see Oancitizen in a channel awesome video again! This movie looks loathsome; utterly loathsome. I hate movies that try and make the audience feel bad for having fun; especially about commercial fun because it’s high art. Vile 33:11, yay! I knew you’d do it!! I love the music!! Dude; this was more thought… Read more »

Yeah, Paul Thomas Anderson and Stanley Kubrick being influences on this. This guy wishes he could kiss their shoes. This “filmmaker” represents why a lot of people look down on indies as pretentious, and that’s dangerous. Crapping on a theme park many have worked hard to make, countless hours to build rides and whatnot, and all he could do is shame that memory with this.

Randy Moore, I hope you’re proud.

Nicely done; in incidentally, a review whose filmography also manages to put to shame its own subject. And speaking of which: its film creator’s passive-aggressive contemptuousness and overall pretences seems more to reveal, rather than hide, the hollowness and ineptitude of the work in question.

Just another all-the-fakers-neglecting-to-notice-the-emperor-is-naked type of work. I wouldn’t give it (and its questionable and undeserved publicity) a 2nd thought. Mediocrity, artsy and otherwise, often reigns supreme; but not always.

I definitely echo the sentiment about suspending one’s disbelief, all the way! Let imagination (and the spirit of imagination) soar.

This was fantastic. These reviews were a lot less silly than your other reviews (don’t get me wrong, I LOVE those reviews) but this made me contemplate a lot of stuff about my own experiences in the parks. Loved the ending, it felt like Gandalf or Han Solo returning to see you in Disneyland again!

Can’t wait to see what’s next. I think you may have become my favorite reviewer ever on Channel Awesome.

Me too and if Doug ends up doing more clipless reviews or he ends up sucking he’ll become my favorite talent on this site.

WesleyFoxx

Kyle would be my favorite, but he’s not on the site anymore. :< Tony's my favorite since Doug's already fallen out of my favor with the clipless still in theaters non-reviews.

Do they realize how horrible it would be if he did go with that girl? They made her look 15 at the oldest. I’d never noticed how young she looked until this video.

This was an absolutely tremendous…, piece, I guess (I’d say it goes far beyond the label of a mere “review”). Fantastic insight, you really did wind up totally upstaging your subject.

If I have a criticism, I thought the long speech at the end did kind of cross the line into schmaltzy a bit, but hey, that line is going to be in a different place for every viewer. And that final shot was just gorgeous.

I did appreciate the irony of the monetization claim. Reminds me of how in all the time Doug’s been doing his Nostalgia Critic videos, the only one they tried to take down was “The Room”, an artsy indie flick from a complete hack. Or the many times Jim Sterling has gotten reviews of shitty indie games taken down by their developers. Though to be fair — and I realized when the credits rolled — this might not be the same thing in your case; Google probably has a policy of automatically flagging content from movies that are available legitimately on… Read more »

Congrats Tony. This was beautiful. I have an interesting question. Over this past season (or season so far, I’m not sure where you cut them), did you do most of your shooting at Universal to get around your annual pass blackout dates? Or was it purely an artistic choice?

Jon McKenzie

SJWAC, I commend you. I’m still fairly new to the Internet Commentator scene, and have not watched everyone, but compared to those I have, you are the most thorough in doing research. You’re right up there with Kyle. While others tend to act as if anything that happened before they were they born is not worth mentioning, if they knew it existed at all, you give a more rounded and richer context to your comments, and make them funny to boot. I’m 61, have always had an interest in many things, including stuff of a couple of generations prior to… Read more »

In truth they (The Disney Corporation) should not even care about demanding legal licenses or copyright clauses signed by any normal or not-so-normal ordinary people filming a narrative story or “mockumentary” documentary for the possible desire of monetary gain or just simply for their own sake of having fun or creating family memories in their theme parks because they probably are so super-rich that they or their lawyers wouldn’t care much if you violated some copyright or plagerized something from or of their content or on ride locations for whatever purpose that person desires.

CaptainRoland

I think and believe the Walt Disney Company despite creating the “Mickey Mouse Copyright Term Extension Law” back in 1998 during the Clinton Adiministration (I have researched it on Wikipedia), would be somewhat laidback about ordinary American or any other citizens in the world using their intellectual property to stream for themselves or bootleg versions of disney films or video games or books or whatever. Anyway they the Big D is a monopoly so they should not care so because they are not losing profits. Unlike my CUNY Kingsborough Community College institution located in Brooklyn, New York City which it’s… Read more »

I also can’t believe the company and director that slathered itself in some weird anarchistic revelry that they were able to film in Disneyland/world would want your video taken down. It can’t just be about how you destroy the film, that’s freedom of speech, but that you used parts of the movie? What a bunch of hacks. I was also interested in seeing the film when it came out, but after watching this, I really have no desire. I was waiting for any resemblance of Disney corruption in the world, and you pointed out the only thing with the prostitute… Read more »

Late to the party on commenting (long time fan – since just before you got picked up on Channel Awesome, actually) – but on top of another absolutely stellar review, I just wanted to give extra praise for that Disneyland/Entertainment/Happiness spiel. As someone who is currently at the Florida theme parks more days of the year than not, I found it incredibly poignant. I was never quite able to word what you did on my own, and for that, I thank you. Maybe I’m just at a very emotional stage right now, but I found it very moving.

This was amazing. Just…thank you. I’ve been a long-time fan, but this review just blew me out of the water. This isn’t just a review of a phenomenally bad movie; it’s funny, it’s deeply thoughtful, and it’s undeniably art. Just, thank you for doing what you do. I appreciate it.
