Ratman_tf:
The Spine of Night



I just heard about this tonight. It's a blatant homage (rip off?) of Ralph Bakshi style rotoscoping, and crazy 80's animation like Heavy Metal.

Just watching the trailer, the crisp line art contrasts so badly with the backgrounds. But the story itself looks crazy gonzo good.

I might have to watch this after I get some money in the ole checkin' account.

Poor innocent natives, slaughtered for no reason by white men, fight back using their native powers (which are far superior to the white man's, even though he is somehow oppressing them).  And the female protagonist (who seems to defeat those white men in combat).  Oh, and Patton Oswald.  This is going to be woke trash.  Don't insult Heavy Metal by invoking it here (nor its truly legitimate female protagonist).

Say what you will though. They are prolific. Over 200 movies so far.

Supposedly, their mockbuster of Battleship was actually better than the 'real' movie. Granted, that's an amazingly low bar to clear.

I liked Battleship.  :- I mean, it was like a Michael Bay movie but 100X less annoying and stupid.
Maybe that is a low bar...

I liked it, too. Battleship is a stupid movie, but it's kind of fun.

Battleship was one of those oddballs where executive meddling helped derail it. Also Hasbro was wanting a die in with their Unit-E concept and the Space Battleship board game. None of which you see in the movie really.

Overall its a muddled mess with a few interesting bits lost in the morass.

Not sure if mentioned this one before. But before my accident came across an interesting little movie called Train Quest. Though it does not say in the credits. This is obviously either a Full Moon or their kids line Moonbeam movie.

Basically a model train fan gets a job at a strange train shop. But ends up shrunken down into the train diorama and racing the clock to escape before he gradually turns into a mini figure. Some nice effects too. Especially the figure people.

Seems like probably one of Full Moons last movies?

My wife and a friend wanted to see eternals so we went…..

Holy shit that was bad. A lot of the jokes didn’t work. Acting was some of the worst I’ve seen in a superhero movie. The plot was a plot hole.
