    No, this is not an April Fools joke, I had to take down the other version and re-edit it further because it got claimed (if this version does too, I'll just leave it up). This episode was first released in June 2014. Unlike a lot of the older episodes I've re-uploaded, I had the original source files on hand, so this episode is now presented in HD (the original Blip version was not). This episode loses about 1m 18s from it's original, mostly from the film clips, although there have also been reductions to dragging sentences, and in one instance I used an alternate take. This was coming off the end of my "shouty" phase, where I was trying to sound a bit normal, but I understand if it still sounds a little coarse. Feel free to re-post your comments.

    Apparently, the original film's being remade into a TV series.

    I'm not holding out much hope for it.

    Y'know, it bugs me because I think the only really interesting thing about Lawnmower Man was the relationship between Jobe and Peter, and both these movies just totally squander that potential.
    It's cool to see a fun review of one of these movies. I haven't thought about these things since I watched the first one as a little kid for some reason. For the longest time I thought it was just a fever dream I had.

    Gamesmaster promoted the hell out of this film, even went on the set to do a piece.

    I swear someone even offered a walk on part as a prize in the UK.

    This whole movie looks like a Peter Gabriel music video.

    The opening of this movie reminds me of the opening to Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. They both open with footage from the previous film (or in the case with PA, footage from 3 movies ago), but completely contradict what actually happened. The only difference is that with The Ghost Dimension, they DELIBERATELY altered a specific part of the original footage to make it seem like it happened in the ending of 3, even though it didn't, then "seamlessly," transition to new footage with blatantly obvious replacements for the child actors who don't even match with the original footage. That movie pisses me off and makes the fourth movie look good.

    The bullshit computer talk at 19:23 is still more coherent than the fuckin' Architect speech from Matrix Reloaded.

    Was that theme at the end a blatant ripoff of Jurassic Park?

    I saw this film on VHS sometime in the late 90's, and also was shocked at how cheap it looked. I am surprised it was released in theaters, with effects that feel like a 90's TV movie.

    Also, I believe the film was originally intended to be a standalone film, and not a sequel to The Lawnmower Man, which explains the continuity errors and the vastly different tone and setting.

    9:11 I like your Doug Walker moment here. He does it a little too much which slows the pace of his reviews down, but when you do it, it's kind of refreshing and cute!

    I could have sworn in half the shots of Jobe that it was Jeffrey Combs playing him, he looked totally like him…
