Meme Monday – Looney Tunes

Hey, who knew that Looney Tunes had a Twitter, and that they were sharing .gifs and generally just trying to remain relatable in today’s world?

 

Hamilton Polka!

In case you missed it, Weird Al has done it again – an amazing pop culture polka. This one is just Hamilton  music. Enjoy.

But wait! There’s more. How about Lin Manuel Miranda listening to it?

Wait, is that Jimmy Fallon? Like, maybe they were on the show together?

Yep.

Which would of course not be complete without a lip sync.

 

Has How It Should Have Ended finally gotten too obvious?

The other day, How It Should Have Ended dropped their newest video, for The Last Jedi. And… I laughed, but I was never surprised.

Maybe it’s just because this movie ended up with so much chatter about it, about all of the different little parts people wished were different. All the perceived plot holes or plot complaints.

Maybe it was because I watched the HISHE review of The Last Jedi.

But basically, this HISHE felt like fanservice. Sure, they frequently have elements that play into fan complaints or fan observations about the film or plot. They have some fun surprises or shortcuts usually though. I love the Lord of the Rings resolved with the eagles, that’s just classic. And Harry Potter resolved with time travel? Perfect.

But this one just served up all of the fan service. And the comments? “It’s the canon Last Jedi!” and “Better than the original!” and such. Because the number one unifying complaint about this movie is that it wasn’t what fans expected, and by extension, not what fans wanted. So now they’ve been fed what they wanted, but for me… it’s falling flat.

Hopefully this is just an oddity of this episode, of this HISHE. That they have some fun, unique surprises ahead to hit us with. The Mary Sue, at least, seems to think that some of the scenes were jabs at the an complaints: maybe so, and that is certainly a reading which allows for them to keep doing their thing moving forward. What do you think?

Movies to Memes

For meme Monday, we watched this video the other day! I thought it was new… but apparently it was just one that YouTube was recommending from a few years back. Still, good list!

I like the list except the number one spot – not one we’re familiar with.

Happy 30 years of Star Trek The Next Generation!

There’s been lots of stuff going around lately with the 30th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation airing, but then I watched the Honest Trailer and that took the cake:

Funny personal piece, of the three episodes they joke that they want you to forget, 2 of them are some of my favorites. One is the odd Doctor Crusher episode…
