Gregg's suggestion for a Christmassy Hobbit commercial really made me laugh.

Was a little disappointed that this wasn't something more elaborate like the Oscar special, but it still made me laugh a lot.  As has been mentioned before Gregg just has an incredible knack for being so hilariously banal.  It was great to see him object to Tim's racism as well.  I also enjoyed how obviously ungracious they were about each other's presents (though at least Gregg made some effort to hide his disappointment); the fact that Tim bought the more expensive gift is something that's bound to cause rifts between them in the future.

I liked it.

Interesting developments at play.

Or nothing happening, depends which side you take.

I own that model of Blu-ray player and it's cheap as fuck.  Think I got it for around $70, which is probably what it would cost to get that On Cinema merch made if you factor in shipping and all that.

Besides, it's #thethoughtthatcounts, isn't it?  So Gregg wins overall.  Nothing thoughtful about a Blu-ray player, especially for someone who's made it abundantly clear that he's a VHS aficionado.

Somehow I don't think Tim's going to see things that way.

Think they missed a trick by not having a special Christmas themed arrangement for the opening music (with jingle bells).  I did enjoy Tim going on about the War on ChristmasTM though.

The BluRays Tim got Gregg weren't even Oscar-tipped. Any Movie Buff could tell you that.

Tim is becoming more normal and Gregg is becoming increasingly odder. His rant about needing blinkers for the Hobbit is the patter of a madman.

Interesting.

Gregg has always been really odd and obsessed with the Hobbit.  His idea that "500 Movies in 500 Days" would somehow be an admirable achievement is madder than anything else. 

500 Movies in 500 Days: Kickstarter video for Gregg's campaign

Don't really see how Tim is any more normal.  He's still failing to pronounce the names of well known actors and seems more interested in right wing politics than anything else.

I like that he breezed through the first few names of the 'Madea' cast and then had pronounced difficulty with the last one.

His right-wing politics have taken a backseat over recent months, so it's good to see that he's still fighting the good fight and hasn't been swayed by the Obamacare excitement.

Tim ended the last series with a bandage on his head (if I remember rightly). He also went through a bad divorce publicly, numerous times was mean and unprofessional to Gregg, was a disgrace on the Oscars special,  dragged his new girlfriend into things - despite her obvious lack of movie knowledge, and even went as far as larceny.

Gregg on the other hand was always the consummate professional. His attempt at '500 in 500' was admirable, but in no way unachievable to a real movie buff.

Just based on this episode I'd say Gregg is the odder of the two and expect more in that vein. I won't be surprised if he breaks Tim's nose with a headbutt in the next episode.

Yes, watching an entire film tends to give away the ending.

This was the movienews.com source that led him to think that The Hobbit had been nominated, courtesy of Tim Heidecker.



Funny how that the only thing I care about the Oscars is how Gregg Turkington will react to them...

Interview with Tim (for once, not in character) about On Cinema.  Interesting to know how it originated and that it's all improvised (which I had suspected).

How much more of this shit is Gregg going to put up with?

By the way, here's another film essay written by everyone's favourite movie buff.

When Oscar Got It Wrong

by Gregg Turkington

The Academy Awards has been the major award for movies since its inception. But behind all the glitz and the glamour, sometimes they’ve gotten it wrong, and chose the wrong movie. This article is a look at Oscar’s biggest mistakes through the years. The Oscar snubs that we will never forget. ...

1939, The Wizard Of Oz was nominated but did not win Best Picture. Since then it has gone on to become one of the biggest classics of all time. Nothing against 1998’s Shakespeare In Love, but why should that movie have the coveted Best Picture Oscar, when the Wizard’s mantelpiece is empty???

1981. Chariots Of Fire wins Best Picture. I agree that it was deserving, but feel 1981 should have been the year of the rare Oscar “tie”, and that the Statue should have gone to two films, both Chariots Of Fire, and Raiders Of The Lost Ark. History has shown them to both be eternal classics. Oscar needs to have more ties, in general.

1990, the Godfather III. Let’s face it, it would have been cool if the Godfather III could break an Oscar record by joining the Godfather (1971) and the Godfather II (1974) to become the only movie from a series that won an Oscar all three times. Imagine what an honor. But it was not to be. Instead, a little movie called Dances With Wolves put Kevin Cosner on the map.

2012. The Hobbit breaks all box office records, and is an audience favorite. Yet it is not nominated at all, meanwhile unseen movies like Beasts Of The Southern Wild are. And then to add insult to injury, Argo wins, not The Hobbit. Let’s face it, Oscar, you have become out of touch.

2013. The Hobbit II was even better than the first. But in what is being heralded as Oscar’s Biggest Mistake, it was left off the list once again. Fortunately, Oscar Nomations are essentially “suggestions” for the voters, and are not binding. It remains to be seen if The Hobbit II will win anyway, but odds are good. It was a great movie and destiny will make it one of the all time classics of our generation. Oscar, here is your chance to right your wrongs, to make up for some of the historic flubs of the Past. Will you get it right?

That is excellent. Where'd you get that from? I've just been googling around trying to find the original post?

EDIT: Just found it. It's on their facebook. Sorry.

Like I said earlier, intentionally bad writing is probably the easiest form of comedy to do, but knowing that it's penned by Gregg's smug On Cinema persona somehow makes it brilliant.  Someone should ask him which movies aren't a classic?
