There's too much crap machinima for someone not to do this.Machinima Commentaries is a MST-style YouTube series wherein a YouTuber going by the alias Moon|Mover (who is also a Troper known as Anthony Alexander) and occasionally some friends of his ridicule bad machinima.
This series provides examples of the following tropes:
- Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: Moon|Mover manages to find theological sybolism in Tactical Noobs.
- Hollywood Tactics:
- "Let's hide behind these exploding crates!"
- Hypocritical Humor: Moon|Mover also makes his own machinima, and they are not particularly good themselves.
- Improbable Aiming Skills:
- "Even though it's not helping, these Elites all have really good aim."
- "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: Moon|Mover occasionally reminds the audience that he did not edit the video beeing shown in any way other than adding commentaries to it.
- Take That, Us: When Moon|Mover and Zach are watching War, someone shows up out of nowhere and starts complaining about how mean-spirited they are being.
- What an Idiot: In Delta Squad Chronicles, one SPARTAN sneaks up behind an Elite. His partner then snipes the Elite. Moon|Mover complains about how that was a needless risk, and how the sniper came very close to hitting his own partner.
