Mike and Jay go down a rabbit hole of shameless rip off movies! Specifically Willy's Wonderland starring Nicolas Cage and The Banana Splits Movie, two films """"""influenced""""" by the premise of the video game Five Nights at Freddy's. Which one will be deemed The Best of the Worst????

  • Wow how the fuck does Willys have such a high RT score? That website died long ago.

  • I thought Cage was going to be revealed as an animatronic at the end, those drinks were to keep his batteries charged which is why he has an alert set and has to stop what he's doing to drink them, and they made him more human and realistic but didn't give him the ability to talk in exchange. However, the girl drinks some of the drink at the end so that doesn't make sense, he uses a bag of drinks as a weapon wasting what would have been his life source, and he vocalises when he exerts effort so he must be able to speak and it's a choice not to. I liked the animatronic designs more in Willy's Wonderland than The Banana Splits Movie but the shaky cam, quick cuts and lack of payoff of the drinks/pinball machine were a problem. Speaking of confusing/lack of setup and payoff, in Banana Splits how do they all go crazy at the same time? Only the lion seemed to get the update, and how did the Elephant resist it? It's a program so it shouldn't be able to be reasoned with, also found time hard to tell because Doug and the group of other audience members got massacred off-screen but there didn't really seem to be time for them to do that, kidnap all the kids and then rush off to do other things, seemed to be a case of Jason just being places despite almost always just walking.

  • My girlfriend lives in Barboursville WV, where one of the last original operating "The Rock-afire Explosion" animatronic bands still plays in a place called "Billy Bob's Wonderland" (an arcade). We went to play arcade games in 2019 and the animatronics there creeped me the fuck out. They are in various states of disrepair, with some of their faces partially melted and parts of their bodies not working. Of course by then I had played FNAF (VR version included) so I was telling her how they reminded me of the game and how I thought they were creepy. After watching this video I was surprised to find out that those very same animatronics were what inspired FNAF. Crazy how things come full circle like that.

  • Why does ANYONE for ANY REASON trust Rotten tomatoes scores? If 100 people rate the movie what would be a 6/10 it gets a 100% rating score because every rating was technically positive (over 50%). Not to metion all of the times they have REMOVED THOUSANDS OF SCORES because people hate a movie for genuine reasons but someone like Amy Schumer or Ghost Busters (2016) Execs convince them to run it back. IMDB is objectively a better rating system if you need one for some reason. I Immediately disregard anyone's opinion that seriously uses Rotten tomatos to determine movie ratings.

  • lol yall took this way too seriously and yet somehow still completely wooshed on Willy's Wonderland :D. The reason it's rated so well by audiences is because this is exactly what folks wanted out of a dumb Nic Cage movie. And obviously low budget. Coulda used some slightly better fights maybe, but even then you wouldn't want it too good. Apparently this just scratches a genre of good bad movie yall are not aware of. I feel like yall were way harsher on the movie than it warranted. Yall even missed points like the fact that he took breaks no matter what was definitely an intentional and important design choice....it's not just random. Also Nic Cage was into making the movie and yall kept saying he wasn't lol. But he's gone on record :). Yall just whiffed this one completely, but I still love yall. Happens when you're too deep into being a critic...you start seeing everything via the eyes of only a critic.

  • Honestly Willy's Wonderland is a true horror film. The problem with most horror films is that you know they aren't real. WIlly's production values are a thing of true horror and the most horrific thing is that you know its all real. Just looking at that ballpit set you can feel the nightmarish screams of the unpaid intern sent to Lowes with $1.50 in his pocket and the mission to create a movie prop. That's bonechilling.

    • Saw a fan theory that fits perfectly that the reason he's so strong, kills them 1 by 1, and takes the breaks without fail is that this is part of the satanic contract and he's a modern day demon hunter. One of the tropes of such contracts is they are always supposed to technically be winnable. But if you kill them outside of the terms of the contract they just come back to life. So he came into town specifically to purge the town of these monsters and he came prepared. This explains why he isn't surprised, the custom energy drinks are just Witcher Potions in disguise, and he gets stronger as he defeats each new monster as per the terms of the contract/potions.

He's supposed to beat up the animatronics easily and walk away unfazed, he's the stoic man with no name, literally the point of his character. If you guys find this movie to be bad and uncreative, please by all means make one better! I am a big fan of you guys but I've tried watching your movies and they are the real atrocities. Willy's Wonderland is an instant cult classic. I'm sure you guys can and will make a great movie at some point, but sheez louise this is a movie about possessed Chuck E. Cheese characters, cut it some slack!!

  • They could've done so much more with the Willy's Wonderland movie. Like ham it up by 300%, change a couple of things. Like the Fairy mascot could have just been a head, the quirk being it needs a new body by decapitating and stealing someone elses. The rest of the crew for the first act, easily taken care of, for the comedy part, then second act they comeback, having put themselves together like messed up jigsaw monsters, crawling on the ceiling, breaking through walls and so forth. Where they actually lean into the movies lore and they become more hellish and demon like as it proceeds to the third act and they blow the whole place up. Which then they could have cowboy and mechanic come in with the car repaired, hooting and hollering that the evils been defeated only to be killed off by the surviving nightmare that still exists on the site.

  • 'Willy's Wonderland' cost five million dollars to make, so I'm going to give myself a challenge: I'll take five minutes to type out as much as I can of a quick, easy framework for a story that sticks to the main premise of Willy's Wonderland while actually having a plot and characters. And...go! Alright, so we cold-open with Nick Cage badly hurt and fleeing from WW. He's clearly gotten his ass kicked, and we get glimpses of the animatronics but nothing major yet. One of them taunts him with something like 'Hehehehehe! Our pact with Lord Evilface makes us eternal, and only one sacrifice has ever escaped!' Doesn't matter the exact wording, it's the taunt and the detail of the survivor. Still, he makes it out, and maybe we see another body or two still inside that are implied to have been his partners or whatever. Show some busted weapons, holy symbols, and other supernatural-y stuff, too, to make it look like they went in prepared and still got their asses kicked. Maybe we get to see one of the robots magically repair itself a la the Golden Army in 'Hellboy 2' after one of the partners sets off an explosive to try give Nick Cage a change to escape while taking one of them down with him, just to establish early that they really do have some supernatural protection. Fast forward to some time later, where we see the female lead, who is in juvie for attempted arson. However, she just turned 18, so she's getting transferred to a different facility. She still survived while her parents were killed, but she was young enough that she repressed the memories of what happened and believed the official 'it was a murder cult but they're dead now' story. Unfortunately, a well-meaning therapist helped her recover her memories, including what she saw of a ritual done with her parents' bodies, immediately after which she tried to burn the place down (which needless to say didn't work), and nobody believed her 'Evil robots killed my parents' story. As she's being transported to the new facility, Nick Cage busts her out, and after he follows up her vague request to be dropped by the town where WW is he says something like 'You're gonna try and burn the place with the evil robots, right?' that makes it clear he knows the truth and segues into the reason he helped her escape custody. He tells her about the failed attempt he and his partners made to destroy the place, and that he knows she's the only other person to escape. He also knows from the police report after her arrest that she saw the ritual, and it's the details of that ritual that can potentially give him/them the edge that she and his team lacked. Then- -aaaaaaand time. Huh. Not too shabby, I think. It's a place to start, at least. I think I drew a decent amount from 'Drive Angry,' but I never said that this rework would be particularly original. Just that, in five minutes, a stream of consciousness from a random hack on the internet gave this story more actual 'story' and the characters more actual 'character' than we got from a film that had five million dollars sunk into it.
