Mike and Jay go down a rabbit hole of shameless rip off movies! Specifically Willy's Wonderland starring Nicolas Cage and The Banana Splits Movie, two films """"""influenced""""" by the premise of the video game Five Nights at Freddy's. Which one will be deemed The Best of the Worst????

  • are these guns props or real?

  • Honestly I'm not really sure which of these movies is better. The Banana Splits Movie has amazing effects and well pacing, but is brought down by bad acting, confusing story, and not much zany deaths that's true to the slapstick of the show it's based on. Willy's Wonderland has better looking animatronics and some nice looking colors, but is also brought down by unlikable stereotypical characters, dumb story, awful editing, and unprofessional camerawork. While it may look like Willy's Wonderland has the most problems, I don't really know if it's worse than The Banana Splits Movie, cuz that film also has the same amount of problems.

  • Fun fact Willy’s wonderland wasn’t inspired by fnaf so it’s not a fnaf rip off banana splits is most likely the old fnaf script and well the hug may have been inspired

  • Showbiz actually bought out Chuck E. Cheese, but didn't own the rights to the Showbiz characters, so all the Showbiz Pizzas were shut down or rebranded

  • Nicholas Cage's character seemed to be autistic in that role. They could have made it worked but it was just slapped together with not much thought given.

  • I know I’m hella late on this, but the animatronic explosion as of late that started with FNAF has nothing to do with that documentary. Fnaf was actually the result of criticism from games journalist Jim Sterling saying that All of Scott Cawthon’s characters looked like fucked up animatronic horrors. So Scott made a game about animatronic horrors.

  • I thought Cage was going to be revealed as an animatronic at the end, those drinks were to keep his batteries charged which is why he has an alert set and has to stop what he's doing to drink them, and they made him more human and realistic but didn't give him the ability to talk in exchange. However, the girl drinks some of the drink at the end so that doesn't make sense, he uses a bag of drinks as a weapon wasting what would have been his life source, and he vocalises when he exerts effort so he must be able to speak and it's a choice not to. I liked the animatronic designs more in Willy's Wonderland than The Banana Splits Movie but the shaky cam, quick cuts and lack of payoff of the drinks/pinball machine were a problem. Speaking of confusing/lack of setup and payoff, in Banana Splits how do they all go crazy at the same time? Only the lion seemed to get the update, and how did the Elephant resist it? It's a program so it shouldn't be able to be reasoned with, also found time hard to tell because Doug and the group of other audience members got massacred off-screen but there didn't really seem to be time for them to do that, kidnap all the kids and then rush off to do other things, seemed to be a case of Jason just being places despite almost always just walking.

  • My girlfriend lives in Barboursville WV, where one of the last original operating "The Rock-afire Explosion" animatronic bands still plays in a place called "Billy Bob's Wonderland" (an arcade). We went to play arcade games in 2019 and the animatronics there creeped me the fuck out. They are in various states of disrepair, with some of their faces partially melted and parts of their bodies not working. Of course by then I had played FNAF (VR version included) so I was telling her how they reminded me of the game and how I thought they were creepy. After watching this video I was surprised to find out that those very same animatronics were what inspired FNAF. Crazy how things come full circle like that.

  • Mike was saying Show Biz pizza place went out on business in the 80s but in my area they were still open until at least 2015 and may still be open as far as I know. I can say all my grand kids preferred Show Biz to Chuck E Cheese (we have both in our town) and know Show Biz was still around until 2015 because that was the last time I took them there.

  • Why does ANYONE for ANY REASON trust Rotten tomatoes scores? If 100 people rate the movie what would be a 6/10 it gets a 100% rating score because every rating was technically positive (over 50%). Not to metion all of the times they have REMOVED THOUSANDS OF SCORES because people hate a movie for genuine reasons but someone like Amy Schumer or Ghost Busters (2016) Execs convince them to run it back. IMDB is objectively a better rating system if you need one for some reason. I Immediately disregard anyone's opinion that seriously uses Rotten tomatos to determine movie ratings.

  • lol yall took this way too seriously and yet somehow still completely wooshed on Willy's Wonderland :D. The reason it's rated so well by audiences is because this is exactly what folks wanted out of a dumb Nic Cage movie. And obviously low budget. Coulda used some slightly better fights maybe, but even then you wouldn't want it too good. Apparently this just scratches a genre of good bad movie yall are not aware of. I feel like yall were way harsher on the movie than it warranted. Yall even missed points like the fact that he took breaks no matter what was definitely an intentional and important design choice....it's not just random. Also Nic Cage was into making the movie and yall kept saying he wasn't lol. But he's gone on record :). Yall just whiffed this one completely, but I still love yall. Happens when you're too deep into being a critic...you start seeing everything via the eyes of only a critic.

  • Honestly Willy's Wonderland is a true horror film. The problem with most horror films is that you know they aren't real. WIlly's production values are a thing of true horror and the most horrific thing is that you know its all real. Just looking at that ballpit set you can feel the nightmarish screams of the unpaid intern sent to Lowes with $1.50 in his pocket and the mission to create a movie prop. That's bonechilling.

And then as he's about to leave, it shows the girl and I'm thinking "She met him less than 24 hours ago, he hasn't said a word to her, and he left her to fight these things on her own TWICE. PLEASE get in the car with him." And she does!

He has also done some boring ass movies like every time we say goodbye.

    • Saw a fan theory that fits perfectly that the reason he's so strong, kills them 1 by 1, and takes the breaks without fail is that this is part of the satanic contract and he's a modern day demon hunter. One of the tropes of such contracts is they are always supposed to technically be winnable. But if you kill them outside of the terms of the contract they just come back to life. So he came into town specifically to purge the town of these monsters and he came prepared. This explains why he isn't surprised, the custom energy drinks are just Witcher Potions in disguise, and he gets stronger as he defeats each new monster as per the terms of the contract/potions.

He's supposed to beat up the animatronics easily and walk away unfazed, he's the stoic man with no name, literally the point of his character. If you guys find this movie to be bad and uncreative, please by all means make one better! I am a big fan of you guys but I've tried watching your movies and they are the real atrocities. Willy's Wonderland is an instant cult classic. I'm sure you guys can and will make a great movie at some point, but sheez louise this is a movie about possessed Chuck E. Cheese characters, cut it some slack!!

  • They could've done so much more with the Willy's Wonderland movie. Like ham it up by 300%, change a couple of things. Like the Fairy mascot could have just been a head, the quirk being it needs a new body by decapitating and stealing someone elses. The rest of the crew for the first act, easily taken care of, for the comedy part, then second act they comeback, having put themselves together like messed up jigsaw monsters, crawling on the ceiling, breaking through walls and so forth. Where they actually lean into the movies lore and they become more hellish and demon like as it proceeds to the third act and they blow the whole place up. Which then they could have cowboy and mechanic come in with the car repaired, hooting and hollering that the evils been defeated only to be killed off by the surviving nightmare that still exists on the site.
