Well, anyone that trashes Anime and Manga can't be all bad...

Nice work Courtney.

Now if you could only persuade

Trenchcoat to come down off that high horse and see the damn Hellboy movies

I like some parts of Eastern culture, but anime is not one of them. It's just weird.

Does Trenchcoat ever see any movie in cinemas or on a legal copy?

And Guillermo Del Toro is incapable of making a bad film.

I'm not sure that anything Trenchcoat does is legal.

Why, whoever and whatever could you me-- Ah, to heck with it. Too easy.


Apparently, you've forgotten your Blogger password: I believe it's "trenchcoatisalwaysrightpraisebehisname".


I saw Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead in a theater earlier this year, so that's one for '08 so far...

Finally listened to the podcast:
Opening with Vincent Price is always classy and full of win.

I was so slow in this part, maybe I was just getting tired from talking for 5 hours!

And Tea for the Tillerman is an awesome song, am I right?

I think you're only partly right about if Hellboy was done by the major companies. Marvel probably would have turned him into a mutant or Ghost Rider's cousin. DC, I figure would have put him in the Vertigo line. Of course you would have to have the arbitrary Hell Crossover with Hellblazer.

Look, the only really big difference between anime and traditional american animation is that anime is drawn in Japan and by japanese. The art styles vary from more realistic like Akira to cartoonish like Shin Chan. Sure they have japanese references and flavors cause they are made by japanese.

Like if a cartoonish scene needed a last minute rescue by the calvary. In the american toon you would have 1800's union soldiers on horses. Japanese requires samurai or ninjas.

They also don't have the added restriction that "lesson must be taught."

By the way, I think Courtney would look good in a nazi uniform. With a riding crop.

Team Rocket used to be fun, but how many years do you have to spend as the world's worst criminals before you pack it in. And why hasn't the Officer Jenny clones caught them yet.

I still suspect Pokemon world(seriously, it should be a pedophile's dream) is just a vr world used to keep the kids safe while most of the adults are waging war against alien invaders in the real world. And when the kids grow older they'll join the fighting forces using bioengineered war pokemon. "I choose you, Pikatank!"

Funny you mentioned, "Hellboy Smash!" You know when Mignola was trying to find a studio to do his movie, one of them gave him some revision suggestions, like that HB was a regular human who when angry would turn into the rampaging Hellboy. He ran out of there when they asked him if Hellboy could be green.

Sex machine? Do you mean Gigolo Joe: Love Machine?

Aliens was better than than Alien. And Aliens III would have been great if they stuck with the original script, which you can read in Aliens Outbreak paperback or TPB. Ripley's missing, Neut grown up and institutionalized, Reese going in search of the Aliens' homeworld. Doomsday zealots worshipping the Aliens. Alien outbreak on earth. It would have been so good. There's even a trailer that keeps getting taken down, showing a future earth, narrator read, "In 1979, we discovered in space, no one can hear you scream. In 1992, we will discover on earth, everyone can hear you scream." Then the Aliens start running out.

T Mafia with a kill button? Think Vixen and Courtney would be the only co-hosts left. And certain episodes would never have been made or been two parters.

Bryan Singer did Apt Pupil? No wonder there were gay undertones. Well nazis always seemed gay, except for the nazi babes.

Honey, I can make anything look good.
And the Nazi uniform was nice, black, sleek and clean cut. Also, cool hats!

Sex machine, yes you got the reference. Gigolo Joe was pretty.

I have seen that trailer and heard about that possible Aliens movie, sounds so much better than what we got which was basically the first mvoie all over again. I liked Resurrection for Ron Perlman and the Hybrid.

Courtney, that song is probably as awesomely odd as anything only a minute long can be.

XF, why do I suspect you're an Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS fan? Oh, and those "nazi babes" undoubtedly swing both ways.

Also, all the Officer Jennies? Definitely on the take.

PCX: The Classics Tour.

For a homunculus(small humanoid created by alchemy), Roger is a big guy.

I now think that Team Rocket fails when they try to be evil is cause they don't really want to be evil but evil are the only ones willing to accept them as cool or atleast they think so.

The Eye was great, did you see the mockumentary extras?

If you do follow ups on the Planet of the Apes movies you should bring back Dr MonkeyPants just for those.

Predator 2 was good, but Danny Glover just seemed so ridiculous.

Spooky? Dr Who theme music is so relaxing.

Bugs erupting out of a person's skin, cool? Try the DC's Exterminators.

Seriously the director should have been able to response, "of course. You're one of us. You've constantly proven yourself and once Roger has proven himself after a few missions, a decade tops. We can remove the bomb." The director needs some Employee/Employer relations classes.

You would think Hellboy would like Nazis since they saved him from the pits of hell.

3 shots for the 3 eyes. Or just a big believer in the triple tap.

Courtney- Still no pic with a beard?

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, any good?
