Had I viewed this in sequence, it might have worked better, taking the piss outta the adjoining shorts, if you life.
Probably not, though.
I’m not a keen enthusiast of trailer parks, white trash, low brow comedy.
Get too much of that on the news, from our beloved celebrities, increasingly from those in charge. Politics, the office, barnyard.
Trying to mash T2 with Reno 911 never worked for an instant with me.
With each new scene, I was reminded of “Robots Vs Kung Fu” and how whip smart that was.
And wasn’t mgh working on a sequel? What do I know.
Anyway, nothing about this short worked for me.
Reno 911 fans, on the other hand, may find this irresistible.

This was a really awesome idea. I enjoyed it but there were parts of the execution that didn't work for me. Obviously it would always be noticeable but I wish there had been a bit more of a coherent look instead of being as jarring of a difference in color, look, etc. The use of multiple sources to tell a pretty coherent story is great. I pretty much laughed throughout which is the idea. :)

Audio/Video Quality: 8
Mostly it looks good but the few heavily-cropped shots don't look purdy.

Visual Editing: 8
It's nicely put together narratively and the intercutting with The Terminator totally works. It's a shame there wasn't more of it though and some Colour-Grading of the Reno footage would have blended the two sources better I feel.

Audio Editing: 7
This could have really benefited from some added Terminator music and SoundFX.

Narrative: 9
Suprisingly cohesive for an edit made up of comedy sketches. Fantastic job on this front.

Enjoyment: 10
An absolute delight. Hilarious good times.

Funny as hell. I can't get over how many sources were used.

A funny little short. The use of various sources is clever, but sometimes leads to confusion (though I will admit to being very surprised/impressed at the spread of Reno 911 material used). Altogether, an entertaining edit.
