"V-World Matrix, The Amazing Bulk, and ??????????" is the second episode of the second season of the RedLetterMedia film review web series, Best of the Worst, and 9th episode of the series overall. It first aired on August 28, 2013,[1][2] and September 1, 2013 on YouTube. The episode was edited by Jay Bauman.

In the episode, the Best of the Worst gang meets Colin, a visual effects artist from Canada, and watch two visual effects-driven movies, V-World Matrix and The Amazing Bulk, and a mystery movie.[2]


Mike and the gang meet Colin, a Canadian visual effects artist who has traveled to the Red Letter Media headquarters. Together, they watch V-World Matrix and The Amazing Bulk, two films reliant on special effects.

When Mike suggests the Asylum film Transmorphers as their third movie, Colin, weary of computer generated effects, pleads to watch something different. Mike happily obliges, bringing out the Wheel of the Worst to select their third movie. The wheel "lands" on Colin's personal copy of Gymkata.

During the panel discussion, Rich tries to lead the conversation but is rebuffed by Mike and Jay. The gang crowns Gymkata as the "Best of the Worst" and designates The Amazing Bulk for destruction. In the epilogue, the gang destroys The Amazing Bulk in a long visual effects sequence with guns and a rocket.
