Schwarzenegger month was overall great, and did redeem the "Santa Christ" joke.
Now even though the commentary for the "Star Wars Holiday Special
" explains why they did it (the video stopped there and they needed a good way to end it), I still found the joke dumb and disappointing. That was mainly because it looked they were trying too hard to make him another Memetic Badass
. But then the "End of Days" review showed he wasn't perfect, and can freak out at stupid things. Thus averting the Mary Sue
issues that made me hate the joke in the first place.
And the thing that freaked him out was a great cap off to the Running Gag
making fun of the Cat Scare
in that movie. "CAT! CAAAAAT!
", while Santa Christ just shoots wildly. I got a good laugh out of that.
Most of that month of videos was great, although I agree that the dream song in the Junior
review went on too long. But the rest, just great, from "Because we know somebody gets off on this
", to poking fun at the prayer to Crom
, to "CAT! CAAAAAT!
"God bless you, you stupid, stupid movie."
