3D here with your weekly movie recommendation. Loyal readers of the site will know that I have also been posting each episode of Red vs. Blue: Recreation every week. I thought that in honor of the return of my favorite character this week I would make my recommendation the original Red vs. Blue series set.
If you are unfamiliar with RvB, it is a machinima series, which means it is filmed using a video game engine (in this case the HALO games are used), done by a website called Rooster Teeth. The guys at Rooster Teeth started putting up funny videos set in this world several years ago, and they became immensely popular.
They did five seasons worth of the original series “Blood Gulch Chronicles,” which are available together in a box set with lots and lots of extras. Although the episodes were originally only a few minutes long and aired each week, for the DVDs they have been edited together into movie form.
“Red vs. Blue” is based around what my mother calls “guy humor,” which is filled with double entendre’s (and single ones for that matter), bodily function references, and, in this case, a truly epic amount of foul language.
In other words, it is not family entertainment. But for adults, it is one of the most consistently funny things I have ever seen. If you want to give a couple of episodes a try to see if it is your sort of humor, you can see all the previous episodes in the Rooster Teeth archives. Beware though, you may find yourself sucked into watching quite a few episodes, since RvB is pretty addictive.
