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.

This was pure fun. Not sure about the editing style itself, but it made me laughed anyway until the last shot, after credits.
So mission accomplished.
