Renegade Awesome Episode One Movie Review–Now We’re Really Getting Meta
You might want to strap yourselves in for this one, folks, cause we’re gonna get more meta than Franz Kafka at a party.
I was digging around on Newgrounds, looking for something interesting to talk about when I was tricked–TRICKED, I say!–into clicking the link for Renegade Awesome Episode One. Now, with a title like that, maybe you’re expecting something involving bulked-out steroid cases with huge guns blasting monsters, but no. What you GET is the Renegade Awesome Movie and Game Review Show, as presented by your host, basement dweller par excellence Renegade Awesome.
That’s literal, by the way–he really IS broadcasting out of his parents’ basement, on a webcam. And just as he’s about to launch into one of the lousiest reviews of Ghostbusters that I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading (or having read to me, in this case), something really interesting happens. I’ll leave it to you to discover just what that is.
I liked Renegade Awesome Episode one, and not just because I happen to be a fully functional film and game critic myself. We take a lot of flack for basically being just basement dwellers with delusions of grandeur, and it’s pretty funny to see that stereotype played out in front of us. And yet, at the same time, the next time you skip a bad movie because your critic of choice gave you advance warning about it, well, maybe you should think twice before thinking every critic is another Renegade Awesome.
