Get Hype: Wonder Woman!

I mean, if I can’t tell you to enjoy this movie, how about a bunch of other folks?

We’re hoping to catch this opening weekend, something we haven’t done with a movie in a while. But it just looks so good and we don’t want to miss it. And I mean, it’s the DC Extended Universe, so we should be concerned, right?

Oh. Oh I see. That’s… that’s just how fresh? 97%? Oh.

Maybe DC has finally done it. If there was one movie they needed to nail it with in their whole enterprise right now, it’s Wonder Woman. Meaning, nicely done DC. But I mean, they’re normally just fine, right? It’s just that I’m a Marvel fan…

It’s really looking like there’s something “there” with this movie. And we couldn’t be more excited for that.

Are we just getting too old?

It’s always a question people seem to ask as they get older… am I losing track of the culture? Do I no longer understand those young folks? Holly and I had that question with a couple of videos recently from the React Channel.

We didn’t really know much of the slang… we didn’t know the songs… man, are we just out of touch? Has it finally happened? I mean for one thing, the Internet does a good job of keeping us all connected to the culture. Especially the slang. Although the Internet has made it even easier to cut out the radio completely… so where would I run into music I’m not interested in?

The other thing that I wonder about… when I was younger, would I have known these things? And I feel like maybe the answer is no. The music isn’t my genre, and I think I’m more into movie quotes than slang… So maybe it’s nothing. Maybe it’s just a couple of videos like this in a week’s time.

Maybe they were going with more obscure things to see what happened on the video?…

Yeah, probably not that.

Try not to smile or laugh – allow us to steal some of your time!

So one of the occasional features on the Fine Bros Entertainment YouTube channel that we liked was when they showed them videos and told them to try not to smile or laugh. Whoever made it through all the videos was a winner. Some of the clips they show make it really hard, with looping fails or slow motion.

React Channel logoWith their newer channel, just called React, they have turned this into a far more frequent thing, up to 24 episodes now where all it is is these challenges. It also opened it up to being not just one group (Teens, Elders, Kids, Adults, YouTubers…) doing the challenge, but instead a mix.

I just looked and saw we haven’t really mentioned this on the blog, even though we watch all of these when they’re posted! Often the videos themselves we can resist laughing at, but the reactors – when they laugh, and then catch themselves laughing and realize they’re out – we end up laughing at or with. In other words, we’re not very good at this at all.

So here’s the playlist, currently 24 challenges. Enjoy!
