Why South Park - Bigger Longer and Uncut is THE Best Film of All Time!



Brad

    It just is...

    Oh you want me to make the argument for it?


    Here we go then...

    So as a kid I me and fellow Geek Masher Danto were obsessed with the series South Park


    It came to a point where one day I think we must have watched the entire first series in a day.


    So when the film came out to say we were excited was an understatement. We obsessed over the story even though we had heard nothing about it, imagining potential storylines 

    • What would it be about?
    • How many times would Kenny die throughout the film? 
    • Which guest characters would we see, Mr Hankey? Terrence and Phillip?

    And then came the day of seeing the actual film

    The film was rated 15 and I was that age but Danto and another friend, Joseph, were only 13 and it was a risk them buying tickets. So I bought them for them. When it came time for them to come into the cinema a couple of minutes later you have never seen a couple of teens acting so awkwardly, it was obvious they were under age the minute they walked in but the staff didn't say anything about it

    So we sat down and got some trailers, I can't remember which but it must have been for Star Wars The Phantom Menace and Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged Me

    Then the film started with an awesome opening number, which re-introduces the 4 main kids and their parents, along with the attitudes of the town

    Wait....Haven't I Heard That Before? Part 3



    Brad

    A lot of songs sound familiar, but on many occasions it's because that song not only sounds like an old song, but it has taken parts of it and remixed them

    These aren't classed as parodies or cover songs but there are enough of them to make a post about them (well, 3 to be exact)

    Come have a listen as I look at some of the most famous examples in this final part


    Part 1
    Part 2



    Forget Me Nots

    Men In Black


    We start off with probably the most famous one

    Will Smith added funky new lyrics and a great dance that me and fellow Geek Masher Kayleigh danced along to last year for my birthday

    Walkie Talkie Man


    I first discovered the song Walkie Talkie Man by playing the Elite Beat Agents game on the Nintendo DS

    What I DIDN'T realise was that the riff in this is almost identical to the Kinks song


    Casey Unboxes the Hot Toys Star Lord Figure


    Casey here! So I got another Hot Toys figure, and decided to film an unboxing of it. This time around, I unboxed the Star Lord figure (Guardians of the Galaxy).

    Take a look at it in more detail on the video below. You can also find this via the Geek Mash YouTube.

    Sunshine Superman

    Legend of a Cowgirl


    This is the song to kick off the list because I never knew of the original song

    Sunshine Superman came on the radio one day and me and my mum both went "I Love This Song", but then there were different lyrics, I was like "What is this???"
