Behind-the-scenes footage from Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie, originally a blu-ray extra “On Set With Death Mwuathzyx” from a pickup shoot in late March / early April 2013. This was one of the final legs of production, focused on completing the monster scenes.
I’ve been thinking about some of my favorite opening scenes in films. I’ve seen plenty of lists of the all-time best title sequences, but surprisingly I haven’t found any that talk about the best scenes that come BEFORE the credits, so here are my Top 10!
Happy New Year! Let’s take a look back at the Top 10 Cinemassacre Moments of 2022! James counts down his favorites from all of Cinemassacre and AVGN! Let us know what your favorite moments were in the comments and have a great 2023!!!!!
Every holiday season, I feel the need to add another movie to the list of Christmas classics. If Batman Returns and Die Hard can be Christmas movies, why can’t The Shining be?
Have you ever seen a movie on TV that got censored? You hear a line that got re-dubbed or changed to something else. You feel ripped off. Now movies censored for television are far and few between, so hearing a dubbed over movie now is kind of a pleasant surprise! TV edits were a goldmine […]

Today I’m looking at, what I consider, to be the Top 5 craziest animated scenes. These were chosen to be specifically 2D, from traditionally animated films or live action scenes that contained 2D drawn elements. Sorry to all you 3D or claymation fans, maybe we’ll get to those later.
Remember Saturday Morning Cartoons? From the 60s until the 90s, the 3 big TV networks, ABC, CBS and NBC would show a block of cartoons every Saturday, generally from 8am till Noon or 1, give or take. So let’s look back at this tradition to remember a bunch of shows I used to watch. We’ll […]
Have you ever wondered where the training scenes from Rocky IV were filmed at? I made the journey, matching up shots and doing my best to get as close as possible to some of the more elusive (and dangerous) locations that Sylvester Stallone bravely conquered as Rocky Balboa in his quest to become strong enough […]
Usually I talk about movies, but for this occasion I’ll celebrate the TV shows I love, old and new. With so many genres of shows to choose from, I’ll just focus on 5 shows I love, not necessarily the top shows in any particular order. What are some of your favorite TV shows?
I always liked funny movies, but there was a time when there existed a level ABOVE funny. Movies that were outrageous. The king of that genre was Mel Brooks. He’s influenced so much of our humor today and I recently read his memoir “All About Me”, so I figured it’s about time for Cinemassacre to […]
On Cinemassacre, I don’t think I’ve given enough attention to Disney animated films, so let’s talk about them! Here are some of my most memorable Disney moments, my history with Disney animation, and my personal favorite Disney animated features.
Today I’m talking with one of my biggest inspirations and host of The Last Drive-In, Joe Bob Briggs! We chat about all kinds of horror movies (stuff like Dracula and Tammy and the T-Rex), go into Joe Bob’s history on TV with Monster Vision, Joe Bob’s Drive-In Theater, and now The Last Drive-In, how Joe […]
With how often film shooting locations are re-used, just think about how many movie characters have crossed paths over the years. Today, I’m at Griffith Park looking at one of Hollywood’s favorite places to film: The Bronson Caves! Full list of clips used in the video below. FILM SERIALS Lightning Bryce (1919) The Three Musketeers […]
I recently sat down with legendary B-Horror Splatter film icon and co-founder of Troma, Lloyd Kaufman!

Today marks the 100th anniversary of Nosferatu, the oldest surviving Dracula film! It was first shown on March 4, 1922 in Germany, in the marble hall of the Berlin Zoological Garden. In my review I look back at the classic vampire film, the movies it’s influenced, and the film’s impact on horror and the film […]
Last year, I did a series of videos of me playing me 3-year-old daughter’s Mario Maker 2 levels. Now she’s 4 and has designed some more stages for me to play, so let’s see how they turned out and if I can actually complete them!
In my last video I talked about movies and shows that Passed the Torch from an old cast to a young cast, which leads right into this video on “Cobra Kai” season 4! Spawned from 1984’s “The Karate Kid” and it’s sequels, “Cobra Kai” follows a new generation of kids being taught karate in different […]
Cinemassacre is ultimately about nostalgia. Movies, games, retro topics, sometimes music. Everything I’ve loved in my early years, to the point of building little museums of nostalgia such as the Nerd room and the fake VHS “rental store”. But today I wanted to dive into different memories. VHS ones. Filming things off TV, my favorite […]
Angry Video Game Nerd Episode 200 part 3 (the biggest one yet!!) is coming early next week. So, in the mean time, check out our Top 10 favorite Game Destruction moments in AVGN History!
While working on episode 200, James wanted to look back at his favorite moments from the first 199 episodes of the Angry Video Game Nerd. Episode 200 will be broken up into 3 parts in the first 3 weeks of December 2021. (Kind of like how Polybius was broken up into 5 parts.) Episode 201 […]

Following up on my last mailbag episode where I read some of the most wholesome emails I’ve received from fans in recent years, in this video I’m looking at some of the funniest messages I’ve gotten. Some of these go back many years and are just too hilarious to not be heard, so kick back […]
I haven’t done a mailbag episode in a really long time. So, I cracked open the laptop, set up the camera, and got reading. I’ve saved up a bunch of super nice messages, all of which I’ve responded to already. Over the years, there’s been so many wholesome emails it brought tears to my eyes. […]
Long ago, I inherited some NES games from my childhood friend. Many of them were even used in AVGN. Now, we reunite to play those actual game cartridges once again!
Thanks for watching AVGN for 15 years! It’s been a long time since I’ve done a behind the scenes sort of video. But, I wanted to share some of my new technical updates, the basic set up of a Nerd episode, other projects, and even address some of your complaints.
I’ve been planning to make an atmospheric horror film, for many years. For the time being, it’s on indefinite hiatus (for now, I’ve been trying to get caught up with AVGN and the web videos). I might even make something different. But rather than waiting around, I figured, I’d love to tell you the story. […]
Robbie Rist (the voice of Michelangelo in TMNT 1990) made a surprise, and very welcome, appearance at the AVGN panel during Retro Con, Oaks PA, September 2019. It was an honor!
I put together what I consider to be my list of the funniest movies of all time. These are all comedies, of course. All my favorites! Only feature length films too… no stand-up comedies, shorts, or TV programs. These are in no particular order. I discussed a lot of these picks on Rental Reviews, but […]
Die Hard always gets talked about being a Christmas movie, but what about Batman Returns?
James asks the question “what if they had cellphones in older movies?” Most old films usually had someone running from a bad guy to a phone booth or to a landline to get help. But, with cell phones becoming a big thing in society, how could those stressful moments in old films work out if […]
