How the brilliant "On a Budget" trailer series by Table 8 Productions doesn't have a million YouTube views is a mystery to me. Their latest get-together, "The Avengers (on a Budget)," is solid gold, showcasing all of the members of the comedy and filmmaking gang in superhero roles. Which is fitting, as they describe themselves as "just like the Avengers, if everyone called dibs on not being The Vison."
The production knows when to be a shabby shot-for-shot recreation, and when to ad-lib, and the whole thing comes together in two minutes of hilarity. If you enjoyed this, by all means, see Table 8's "Green Lantern (on a Budget)" and "Captain America (on a Budget)." I don't know who the great big guy is who plays Cap, and the bad guy in Green Lantern, but he steals every scene, and that's saying something. [Update] That dude is Scott Roemaat, the "Game Underthinker."
