Anyone is welcome to jump in here. If no one does after a while I will post something.

EDIT: I just saw that Nostalgia Critic just put out a video on The Wall... Is it some kind of anniversary or just a coincidence?



Welp, 15 minutes of this video have been enough to remind me of why I don't watch Nostalgia Critic.

My guess is... Camp Nowhere?

edit: wait... the hair... the overalls. Could it be The Lawnmower Man?

If you made it that far, I guess it's not the sketches...

I... have literally no idea what you're talking about :-D I just kind of dislike him because (at least to me) he comes across as someone who believes himself to be far smarter and funnier than he actually is. That smugness. Ick.

To be fair, that's a character he plays and he usually does have something worthwhile to say about the films but usually towards the end, after the riffing is done.

In the case of The Wall, he makes a point that he would have preferred to learn more about the grotesque characters in the animations (in an amazing sequence that must have cost quite a bit).

Not for everyone though I'm sure.

My guess:

I Know What You Did Last Summer.

You say 90s but it looks like it's set in the 70s so I'm going to guess Dazed And Confused.

Correct, Ben X!

Indeed is Richard Linklater's Dazed And Confused!

I remember it was an "instant-cult" in the 1993... until the instant passed.  (laugh) Pratically about '70s teenager that wastes their time in stupid pranks, drinking beer and smoking weeds. But not enough sex. A bit moralistic.

This movie had a cast of future stars:  Matthew McConaughey, Milla Johonovich, Ben Affleck and a very young René Zellweger!

"A bit moralistic"? An American movie? Surely you must be joking, or confused! (laugh)

Oops, missed this one.

All the metaphors and characters are absolutely straightforward to decipher (the loss of his father in the war when he was a child, the memories of air raid sirens and bombings, a disintegrating marriage, a controlling mother, abusive teachers, etc). If I was able to understand the whole movie without anybody explaining anything to me at the age of 15, I would assume a supposed film critic should too ;)

(Or maybe we were just smarter then because we didn't have recaps and youtube videos explaining things to us? :-D *Old Aunt Yells At Cloud To Get Off Her Lawn Because Kids These Days*)

Dammit, I immediately forgot that I was stepping back from making guesses! Ok, I'll find a movie I have easily screencappable access to...



Hints: this movie shares an actor with Dazed & Confused, and you will definitely want to use the zoom function to pick out some details!

Pitch Black.

Don't be afraid of the Dark.

Alone in the Dark.

Fifty Shades Darker.

30 Days of Night.

I can go on... :-D

Highlighting it actually brings out a bit of detail. Oh! There's a dude standing right in the middle of the picture!

The Descent?

Well spotted, Snarky!

Does either of those films share an actor with Dazed & Confused?
