We need a RLM thread, the subreddit is a shit show and I'd like to talk more lore, personal lives, and new video discussions.
"The Main Trio"
Mike "not a racist" Stoklasa - Cynical hack fraud ring leader. Born 1978. Obsessed with Star Trek but only really TNG. Started RLM over a decade ago to make shitty "come on don't take it serious it's SUPPOSED to look bad duh" movies with his FAS riddled friend Rich and also do wedding/promotional shoots. Broke into the big time when his Mr. Plinkett reviews/diatribe against the Star Wars prequels went viral on early youtube. Laid the ground work for every whiny movie reviewer youtuber to come. Grew up in Oak Forrest Illinois and went to the same high school as Rich Evans where they met. Graduated in 1996. Went to film school in Chicago that he found stupid and pretentious. Acts like a poor shlub but lives in a brand new 300k house in Oak Creek Wisconsin. Dat Patreon money at work folks!
Rich "dick the birthday boy" Evans - Designated funny fat friend. Born 1977. Parents were burnouts and he grew up raised by grandma. Met Mike in high school, who knew a rube when he saw one and recruited Rich to be beaten up on and fall down in his crappy movies. Followed Mike to Milwaukee because he has no other friends or life outside of Mike. Engaged to an unfortunate looking woman named Karin Franklin since 2013, may never actually marry.
Jerry "Jay" Bauman - Born 1980. Met Mike and Rich on the forums of rewindvideo.com where they found they both had the same "haha look at everyone taking themselves seriously, not us though!" cynical attitude towards movie making. Was in Milwaukee for school and all 3 men decided to settle there for absolutely no reason. Was beta orbiting a woman named Lauren who didn't like him back (the source of the I'm Dying Lauren memes). Also had the hots for a girl named Lisa that appears in old videos, but apparently Mike fucked her and they stopped being friends over it for a while. No known girlfriend or boyfriend.
Jack "aidsmoby" Packard - Low status director in Milwaukee who shot band videos and Funny or Die content. Was once in a band called Kings Horses. Met the guys somehow and started collaborating in the early 2000s. Can be seen in Best of the Worst videos and the defunct PreviouslyRecorded video gaming streams. Married with 2 kids. The only one of the group who isn't a weirdo about his personal life.
Jessica "Jessi" Nakles - Born 1982. Mike's girlfriend since 2011 who disappeared from videos completely in 2015. Was in a shit Milwaukee synth punk band called The New Loud that made like 5 songs and then imploded. Jack directed several of the band videos with Mike and Jay as crew. Met Mike through Jack. Was the only regular female crew member until her disappearance. Fanboys hated on her for not being funny and only being a crew member because Mike was sticking his dick in her. She started gaining a lot of weight and then vanished. Prevailing opinion is because she was scared off by creepy fans and the once public creeper subreddit r/jessinakles. The "real" reason is she got pregnant with Mike's child and they're both private to an autistic degree. Child is rumored to be named Ethan Andrew Stoklasa, born sometime in 2015 or 2016.
Josh "the wizard" Davis. Supposedly Jay's friend but is probably Jack's. Made shitty music with the band IfIHadAHiFi. Completely interchangeable with Jack, neither are particularly funny or interesting.
The Canadians - Colin Cunningham and Jim Maxwell. VFX and Digital artists who have actual talent and careers in the movie industry with no business being on a hack fraud youtube channel. Did the effects on Mike's shit movie Space Cop, how or why they bothered the world will never know.
Macaulay Culkin - Former child actor and drug addict who crawled up out of the gutter to start the website "bunny ears" which is just a worse version of Clickhole or The Onion. Shmoozing (read paying for collabs) with popular "nerdy" youtube channels like RLM and Cinnemassacre for clout and views for said website. Is starting to appear in way too many videos and the fans are turning on him.
lmao, literally no one watches them for their skin quality anon.
Though it's true about Jay, rip he once was cute.
Maybe I'm blind lol but Jay still looks pretty good to me. If he's gotten fat I probably haven't noticed>>41903
I still love best of the worst but I agree, I think I'm more into their reviews of both new and old movies. I also really like when Mike and Jay have discussions about criticisms and such on the movie industry, like in their latest video
They don't front when it comes to being losers, though? Like they pretty strongly acknowledge that they're a bunch of weird losers and take the piss out of each other for it all the time.
Idk. Seems like all big/moderately-sized Youtube channels are some shade of hack these days. I just want something to put on in the background when I draw or play video games.
I like Rich. I hope he doesn't turn out to be some sort of fucked-up prick like most male media personalities.>>41903
I actually feel the opposite way? Best of the Worst are my favorite videos that they do. I'm sick of hearing hot takes on the MCU and Star Wars regardless of who it's coming from. The BOTW videos are always about weird, obscure shit. I find that the "so bad it's good" shit that they find on BOTW is way more fun to hear about.
I think anon means hatred of RLM in general.
Literally the only people I've met who hate RLM are 4channers and/or DC spergs.
I hate when reviewers do "skits" in their reviews regardless of who it is.
Shit like that is why I never liked Nostalgia Critic.
Quick aside, how on Earth is a 300k house notable? 300k is a pretty normal price for a house.
OP is really reaching.
don't get me wrong anons, I'm not a Nolan fangirl and I don't give a shit about DC, but what they were saying about Tarantino (namely that he creates films with wide releases that generate a lot of buzz and are "about something" rather than just being sequels or remakes) applies to plenty of directors, so it's ridiculous to call Tarantino "the last real filmmaker". Those were just the first examples I thought of, and Nolan came to mind first because
>>42611>I wish they would talk about more independent/lesser known movies more often.
Do you just tune Jay out whenever he talks? That kind of stuff is all Jay ever wants to talk about.
I agree about the superhero stuff, though. I'm tired of hearing about it. I'm glad they decided not to do a review of the new Spiderman movie.>>42613
Yes, because that's
what we need: more middle-aged autists sperging about cartoons and sucking Pixar cock. No thanks.
I'll agree that Rich is a total dumbass and I have no idea why Mike would ever collect him as a friend.
I'm giving Jack some extra points for not openly hating the fans like everyone else. He at least tries to talk to them.
The real question is, are you gay or straight?
Jay is objectively the most attractive if we're talking appearance only. But something about Mike makes me pick him over Jay every time. I love a cynical fat Trek nerd I guess. That and Jay looks exactly like my gay best friend.
>>43356>something about Mike makes me pick him over Jay every time
Jesus anon, get some help.
Jokes aside, I would fug 2015 Jay. He's looking ragged lately.

botw is boring when mike isn't the one talking the most

same he's such a cute dork>>43361
pretty boring tbh except for the part when Mike tries to make an apartment pun and forgets the word "apartment".
I usually really enjoy the plinketto episodes but jesus fucking christ I had to slog through this one. I'm worried they're starting to lean into the celebrity guests for botw.
Although I did get a good laugh out of "from the Ellen show, Rich Evans!" because I was fully expecting them to immediately milk Patton Oswalt like they do Macaulay Culkin

rlm needs less disney shit and less celebrity guests

Any idea of what they usually do for income? I imagine that some of them have/had(?) interactions with other people through their work, hence Rich not being around for their last HitB, and the show currently being placed on an indefinite hiatus… But in honesty don't know…
