I liked the emphasis on Charlton Heston figuratively trying to put an end to the Planet of the Apes series once and for all.

I was really happy there was a Death Race 2000 question. You guys HAVE to watch that movie if you haven’t seen it. Most hysterical B Movie EVER!
November 5, 2011 at 1:46 am
Love the trivia videos!
I love to play along and see how I compare to James
Just turned 35 recently and am also a horror fanatic.
November 5, 2011 at 2:36 am
I like this good old camera It makes me remember first James’ videos.
November 5, 2011 at 4:17 am
Why is the audio out of sync? COME ON JAMES! But other than that, Love it.
November 5, 2011 at 4:18 am
Oh nvm, I guess my computer just messed up. Huh…odd…
November 5, 2011 at 5:41 am
You know your sh!t James. I’m thoroughly impressed.
November 5, 2011 at 6:01 am
nice t shirt james!
November 5, 2011 at 6:21 am
This is amazing. I don’t know how you remember this.
November 5, 2011 at 7:32 am
“We recommend it” …except for the fact that some of the answers are wrong!
Really fun and interesting video! But now you should switch so that Mike can answer questions (either more horror or maybe Elvis?) That would be fun to see!

I don’t want look like some douchy nit-picker but you said Maila Nurmi’s name wrong. It’s pronounced MAI-la Nur-mii, but I had admide Mike got pronounced Nurmi pretty close to right.
I guess being Finnish has make me quit critical when americans are trying say finnish words or names (like you say soona instand of sauna).
November 5, 2011 at 10:25 am
Holy shit! I actually got like 5 questions right!
November 5, 2011 at 10:33 am
Wait, they’ve never seen the word Cephalopod before?
November 5, 2011 at 10:34 am
A cephalopod is a mollusk. It means head feet. Cos their feet sorta look like head… well, their tentacles.
November 5, 2011 at 10:47 am
love this damn shit dammit. you fellas kick my balls into outer space
November 5, 2011 at 11:45 am
I could laugh all day watching that guy backhand his kid and scream “i caught it on barbed wire i said!”
November 5, 2011 at 11:55 am
To add my two cents to the Vampira pronunciation: Mai in her first name is pronounced like My and the rest is just la. For the surname “Nur” is like in Nuremberg and mi is like me. so My-la Nur-me.
Also her name translated to English means Bat (as in baseball bat) Lawn/Grass.

Captain Nemo was in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and was not played by Sean Connery. Naseeruddin Shah played Nemo, and Connery was Allan Quartermain

The Haunted Palace was actually based on a short novel by H.P. Lovecraft called The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. AIP changed the title in order to keep cashing in on the Poe franchise. The film has little to do with Poe’s poem of the same name, aside from it being briefly quoted at the end.
November 5, 2011 at 6:20 pm
Can’t expect everyone to know their marine biology, so I think its pretty understandable not being familiar with Cephalopods. =)
The word covers your different varieties of Octopus, Squid, Cuttlefish, etc, without narrowing it down to any particular one, so it was actually a safe way to word the question.
But its not exactly used every day.
Its kind of like referring to Moby Dick as a Cetacean.

Are there any known compatibility issues with this new video player. I could hop over to BLIP to watch monster maddness. But now that I cannot watch this video it is a real issue.
I have flash player up to date and I am using firefox.
November 5, 2011 at 7:30 pm
I love these
November 5, 2011 at 7:36 pm
Wow. This was fascinating. As a trivia buff, I had a lot of fun trying to answer along with you. Though, I have to admit, my trivial knowledge of cinema is completely eclipsed by yours. Either way, I had fun playing. You should do this again.
November 5, 2011 at 9:18 pm
I’m having the same issue has 2dskillz, I can’t get the video to load and I have the up to date version of flash in firefox with all of my adblocking add-ons turned off.
November 5, 2011 at 9:46 pm
“It’s as BIG as a BATTLESHIP! A FLYING BATTLESHIP.” classic. Thanks James.
November 5, 2011 at 11:42 pm
I have that same Pantera shirt – Live 101 proof – niiiice!

“The Beast of Yucca Flats” is a unique film in that there is no on-screen dialog. That is to say that whenever you hear talking in the movie, you are always seeing the person talked to. The audio was put in as ADR because Coleman Francis (a wayyyyy worse director than Ed Wood in my book) wanted to save money so he filmed the movie and added dialog later.
My favorite line from the MST3K send-up of the film (a classic Mike-era episode) is when Mike says, “Tor Johnson as the beast? Now that’s just smart casting”
November 6, 2011 at 8:12 am
Okay, it’s official. James Rolfe is to Sci-Fi and Horror what Eddie Trunk is to Hard Rock and Heavy Metal! Speaking of Metal, I love the Pantera shirt, James!
November 6, 2011 at 9:28 am
You’ve never seen the word “cephalopod” before in your life? I thought that term was general knowledge for most people.
November 6, 2011 at 10:20 am
What no mention of Vincent Ghoul from The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo? For Shame.
November 6, 2011 at 11:05 am
dammit, how’d that happen, commented on the wrong video XD
November 6, 2011 at 3:23 pm
WAIT JAMES! THE BOOK IS WRONG!!
If there is one thing I know like the back of my hands, it’s silent films. Especially Metropolis, one of my favorite movies of all time. Rotwang (pronounced Wrote-Vong) named his robot “Hel” after the deceased wife of Joh Frederson. However, Joh Frederson’s son, Freder, falls in love with the humanitarian-esque Maria at some point and in order to destroy Freder’s faith in her, Joh Frederson has Maria kidnapped and her body copied over the robot Hel.

Maila Nurmi was born in Finland, 1921. Her birth place is clamed to be Petsamo a remote, far northern part which connected Finland to the Arctic Ocean. The place became a part of Finland in 1920 and it fell to the Soviets in WW2, 1944. I’ve always wondered what the hell Mailas parents could have been doing in that kind of a place and how did they ended up in US… were they some sort of spys or something?
November 7, 2011 at 2:58 pm
The book is actually right about INVASION OF THE SAUCER MEN. The aliens have two eyes on their faces, another two on their hands, I guess if they wore glasses, bullies would call them “eight eyes.”
November 7, 2011 at 8:20 pm
oh yeah a nice half hour of james & mike
November 7, 2011 at 8:54 pm
Acromegaly is the syndrome that causes gigantism and cephalopods are squids octopuses etc
November 9, 2011 at 3:29 pm
I like to keep a hard drive with all of james videos, but sometimes they are harder to download like this one, so if you are like me and want to download this video, but you dont know how, here is the link: http://cdn.springboard.gorillanation.com/storage/cinemassacre/conversion/374811.mp4 (right click, and “save as”)
James, Thanks for all the entreteinment and knowledge
November 12, 2011 at 8:41 pm
cephalopods are octopusses (it’s Greek, not Latin, dammit), squids, cuttlefish and related species.
November 16, 2011 at 3:27 pm
loved the PANTERA shirt
November 26, 2011 at 10:11 pm
I love the horror trivia
August 24, 2012 at 2:56 pm
Wonder if the neck mark in Invaders From Mars inspired that one Star Trek: The Next Generation episode, where the parasite’s tail sticks out of the back of their neck.
May 16, 2013 at 1:31 pm
I get an error message that the video can’t be found, is anyone else having this issue?
June 11, 2014 at 6:57 pm
James, may I ask why the video player is so small and shitty? I mean LOOK at this! But, anyways, great work and keep it going.
