Project X (1987) – Show Notes

project x 1987 man and monkey

Intro:

Oh hi and welcome Cadets to  Project X or as I like to call it Project “What Could Possibly Go Wrong.” Here we have assembled an elite force of Air Force pilots to train a team of carefully vetted primates who we will be working with to test the effects of radiation exposure on pilots in case of a second strike scenario.

Just kidding, we actually gathered the Bad News Bears of flying military personnel to train some chimps picked by a guy on a dock somewhere… what was wearing a “sorting hat.” We then takes those chimps and have them fly through some “bad juju” complete with a Jack In The Box style Global Thermal Nuclear Device that I use to heat my coffee. Shall we play a game? Goliath, my coffee is getting cold. Give it 2 more rads, ya damn dirty ape.

Aim High!

Show Notes:

Roll that beautiful stock footage!

Poomba!

That is one serious giraffe. Shoo…fly away bird

Do you ever feel like a giraffe is staring at you?

I know what you did last summer

Meanwhile down at the “Apes for Ants” cafe.

“eat the bug off my stick! eat it! ”

It’s a brush full of  men!

‘Don’t shock the monkey! Cause he’s an ape!”

James Horner does the music! it’s been a while!

Let’s make a deal with the overly enthusiastic  animal poacher.

Who is this guy? The monkey whisperer? The Calaban of apes….he’s the sorting man. Kind of reminds me of Curious George and the man in the banana suit…HAT!

Aww…look how young…no…not the ape… Helen Hunt.

Virgil.

This means apple…also, pointing to this apple means apple.

Is it a good idea to eat the monkey’s apple?

Why does the sign for apple look like “She’s abusing me in the face officer.”

“What time is it?” Half past a freckle on a monkey’s ass.

Virgil wants to fly! Just like back at the “I’m Ape For Ants Cafe”

Wonder if that is a real monkey making noises or if it is Helen Hunt?

“No, it’s not play time.” This movie could be subtitled that. Space X: It’s Not Play Time.

gif by Scott Johnson

That is not a real clock dude….what is the sign for “dumbass.”

Virgil is hairy; not stupid.

The National Health Foundation.

Man, I thought cats were expensive. 15k to buy. 10k yearly upkeep.

“Virgil, Fly…like bird…like in Wizard of Oz. Cept with Apes. Why should monkeys have all the fun. Helen Hunt kind of looks like the wicked witch.”

How convenient…Virgil joins the air force. The monkey dreams of flying one day…joins the air force…oh c’mon!

Them monkey are excited to see Virgil. FRESH MEAT!

They ain’t ever going to let him fly again…not in that shirt.

Bueller doesn’t seem like a screw up. wait..

Cue the silly music.

Rule: pound for pound 7 times stronger than us.

“No funny stuff mister” – Do we still say that?

gif by Scott Johnson

Clapping monkey doesn’t know when to clap. “Yay! oh wait…YAY!”

up…up…

Lady with the blond hair…all lady with blond hair look the same to Virgil.

What is Broderick mopping? Is it ape pee? I hope it’s ape pee. or is Broderick sort of the Clarice in this situation. Whenever you walks by the cage/cells Goofy throws ape goo at him.

Moon is in the seventh house but I’m still knocking on the 6th door. Pretty sure that is a rock ballad from the 70s

Circus Chimp. They are the worst. Smoking. Trying to get me to win a prize for my pretty lady.

Humans are stupid. End sentence

captured by Scott Johnson

Thank goodness for sign language lady from United Way who quickly taught Broderick basic sign language.

I don’t believe it! You must have been a united way ape!

dumbass…what did he expect the monkey to be signing. Of course he is signed out. He’s in a cage…you think he is going to be signing “Penthouse Magazine?” That is a totally different gesture.

A new girl in the neighborhood! Let us out…what is the sign for making it like a couple of apes?

gif by Scott Johnson

All of this sign language could been resolved with pointing. Teach an ape to point.

Virgil is making friends with everyone! He’s fulfilling all of the ape desires!  Virgil knows all…he even knows Broderick wants to fly. He’s more than smart..he’s the wishmaster.

He’s an ape genie.

The Joy Of Signing.  We’ve all read it?

Diamond shaped smile ape freaks me out. Make my Diamond face.

great…now my nickname is razzleberry. What would be your Ape Nick name?

Maybe we rename Goofy to Homicidal maniac.

gif by Brian Dunaway

Virgil just got his blue belt…err…collar…TOTALLY not ape slaves.

Pretty sure kissing your trainee is frowned upon. That is like teacher/student loving right there…and that is wrong…right there.

What happened to Watts? Man in the Bucket.

Blue Beard. Walking the mile…walking the ape/chimp mile.

 

Before drones…apes were our best bet to mitigate human losses?

“Trainer evacuate chamber.” – me when playing pokemon go and taking a poo

Slow motion staring ape is scary as hell.

mmm…that’s some good radiated coffee. “How many rads is this coffee son? Give it two more rads would ja”

gif by Brian Dunaway

“Lord of the Apes.”

gif by Scott Johnson

Giving our Apes cute nicknames was probably not a good idea. Unless you want to call them things like Chicken Nuggets. Bag of Popcorn. Defrost.

Come on Virgil. Straighten up…You are making it so easy for me  to want to zap fry you Virgil.

Jimmy fell for the oldest trick in the book…”lemmie see your BIC pen for a minute. GO GET IT BOY!”

“Red Collar equals gurney nap.” – Virgil’s mind

Virgil is a tattletale! “GUESS WHAT I SAW! Hoo hoo hoo! Screech! Gurney Naps For All! hoo hoo hoo”

Trope/True – Old white men are evil.

Not the red neck! Anything but the red neck Jimmy!

Movie Logic: Cause I learned sign language…I am smart at other things as well. I am practically human now.

No way if you break into a room of your superiors and run your mouth do you not get thrown in the brigg.

Off Hour Entry – EpPPpppPpp

Apes stakes good! <- what?

“Way to go Jimmy…we had everything under control until you set off the alarm. Now our sky light escape is ruined Jimmy…Ruined!” – Virgil Ape

Who was Goofy calling on the phone? “Hello, I would like 2 dozen pizzas delivered to the lab the air force base.”

Goofy Bird to you Doctor!

Does Clappy have a nickname…cause I’m calling him Clappy.

Oh how the tables have turned. Good thing we have guns in the locker room.

Quick. Throw away that soda and pizza plate! The doc is here!

Lights Off…Light on…Lights Off….sure I fly experimental planes all day…but this….Lights on…Lights off…this satisfies my OCD…Lights on…Lights off.

…and you wonder why we lock up apes…look what happens when you let them out…they go all Planet of the apes on ya!

Uh oh…you released the radiation pod you fools!

Well..that is what happens when you go all 2001 on the radiation pod Goliath

You want a cig Goliath? Too bad Spock face. Now live short and die.

Virgil is way smarter than Goliath. Cause…sign language!

What is the end game here? You are still a bunch of monkey’s in a plane. It’s not like the Air force is going to just let you go.

How much gas did that plane have? like a gallon. Monkey’s never had to fuel up in the SIM.

“Sir the bottom is too soft.” – please capture audio Scott!

You are free Slave Apes…now form a society of intellectual apes and enslave us humans one day.

Monkey names first in the credits. What about the humans!

Pretty sure this is how Planet of the apes starts.

 

 

A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) – Show Notes

INTRO:

Oh hi!

That’s right your honor. I was on Elm street just trying to sell my new invention: The Finger Knife Glove when all these parents start coming at me.

What’s that your honor? You like my ugly sweater. Well thank you..uh I like your robe.

Anywho, you see my Finger Knife Glove is going to revolutionize the cutlery industry. It’s going to do for the kitchen… what indoor plumbing did for shitting.

oh…and if that doesn’t excite your honor and the jury, I have a great idea for some Scissor Hands.

What’s that? Not guilty. Well thank you your honor.

Chow Chow Chow!

Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) – Like a giant pimple on your forehead forever captured on celluloid. For Pete’s sake Nancy, pop that thing!

SHOW NOTES:

 

That places looks like tetanus (Tet-Anus)

Lamb in the halls..metaphorical dude! RUN

You can see through here nightgown. Probably on purpose.

This is a pretty complicated shot with all the shadows and smoke? Right? Maybe. Who is the CinnamonTographer?

This music and effects are abrasive. Intentionally. I wonder if they used one of them horror music homemade dealies.

Run girl…run!

Why is it always in the boiler room? Perhaps they will tell us more about the boiler room later in the movie?

Freddie pops up with laser shot noises. pew pew pew

It was just a dream mamma!

Mamma is getting some and by some I mean some of that old man spaghetti.

The Freddie song! 1-2…Freddie’s coming for you….3-4… shhh…I’m trying to see if I can remember it from my childhood! 3-4 Better lock the door. 5-6 Crucifix.  7-8 Something something about don’t be late. 9-10 Freddie’s creeping again. 11-12 You’re out of bed? Twelve…belve…shit….

OGR 805 – Johnny (Glen) is driving an old convertible…and man can he hop!

gif by Scott Johnson

“I had a hard on when I woke up this morning.” Thanks Glenn…so does 90% of the male population in high school…give that man a boner prize.

Up yours with a toilet what?!?

“Tell yourself it’s just a dream and you wake up.” Works for Depp. So not true.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE HAVING A NIGHTMARE? I don’t dream bitches. I killed the sandman a long time ago. NEVER SLEEP!

Got a cousin who lives near the airport…cousin Barry.

When your jambox Foley work is subpar. You are BUSTED. Also, Glen’s mom is the second clueless parent so far. Tina’s mom being the first.

Creepy music makes a creepy story creepy. finger-knives! screee

Nike Sweater Vest pull over…you deserve to die Johnny ‘Glen’ Depp

Kittie Kittie. Chow Chow Chow. (was that a thing? I think I remember a commercial.) Chow Mix?

Hey Rod. You are a dick…and did you forgot to button your shirt up buddy. Nobody wants to see your happy trail.

A sleepover date? Pretty sure that is not a thing. I guess we got away with it from time to time. Did you guys?

Trope…girls gotta stick up for one another…especially when she is dating a creep…always cramps the good guys style.

Ahhh…listening to others have sex…best time. Have you ever had to listen to sex. What did you do?

I guess Tina wanted to wander down Rod’s happy trail after all. TINA MUST DIE.

Nice effect! What a magic trick! Freddie pushing through and then it’s solid.

I think I will go outside in only my shirty-shirt when someone whisper yells my name.

eeek! Garbage pale kids are coming for you? or Oscar the grouch? All we have are those plastic roller trash cans now. I miss the old noisy aluminum cans of my childhood. You know the ones…the ones that were booby traps for late night burglars to bumble over…or possibly you if you are trying to sneak away.

This is god? Your right glove? what do you call left hand. The left hand of god? The lefty. The other hand. Not god?

What’s your body made of? Maggots and Freon?

Do not bring Freddie back with you….do not do it…it sounds like a good plan…but no.

Tidy Whitties on an Italian?

Oh this is getting bloody Tina. No Tina…not on the walls!

Dad is the police chief.

I see why Nancy is so screwed up now. Her mom is an alcoholic and her dad is the Sgt.

Did we ever do that? Show dead arms hanging off gurneys on TV? Maybe in the 70s…but surely not in the 80s!

We liked big buttoned collars in the 80s. The more drunk you are…the bigger buttons you need.

Jump Scare. Rod loves to surprise people. He’s the real villain here.

Maybe if Barry buttoned his shirt once in a while we wouldn’t have to arrest him.

“Look a switchblade!” – Cop One says with surprise.

Nancy don’t wanna sleep! Nancy sleep.

“Where’s your pass! Screw your pass!” – Breaking the law!

Tina’s back…in a body bag! That is a lot of blood in that body bag BTW

It says NO STUDENTS ALLOWED Nancy! Roaming the halls with no pass as well. You are so going to get at least 2 demerits. Did you get demerits in school? If you got 10…that was a paddling.

Freddie consists of green mucus and maggots. mmm.

eeeek! It was all a nightmare. Also, my teacher is the hippie medium from Insidious I believe. She can’t get out of the horror racket. It chewed her up.

Freddie gave Nancy a hickey? Nope…it’s a burn.

Hate those inflatable bath pillows.  Don’t fall asleep in the tub…it happens all the time…well why did you give me this ugly bath pillow if you didn’t want me to sleep.

“Don’t fall asleep in the tub….but here is a pillow. A gross inflatable fungus ridden pillow…NOW DON’T FALL ASLEEP!”

Mom is going to turn down my bed for me….maybe if you had of turned dad down Dad once in a while I wouldn’t have to exist.

Let’s take some Stay Awake and watch some scary movies to avoid nightmares. Thumbs Up!

Nancy…what is that knot on your forehead? Zit cream stat!

Oh god I look 20 years old…like that is a bad thing. I no longer like Nancy.

Johnny Depp and Nancy are teeth twins.

You stay awake (guard) while I nap. WHAT, YOU FELL ASLEEP!

5th precinct sucks.

1-2…I’m watching you.

you get to star most of the movie in a body bag Tina. Sorry about your luck.

Those stepping into the paint buckets full of glue and oatmeal on the steps is bad effects. I get what they were going for. It failed. Good try though

No my favorite Pillow!!! Feathers are everywhere!

Glen…you had one job…

Mom has all the sexy lingerie. Is she a stay at home prostitute?

Glen done fell asleep on the stoop. You just know it…he’s like a narcoleptic. Wasn’t that a thing in Dream Warriors? Part 3?

“We have reason to believe….” – Glenn….do you think you are a cop? Why are you talking like that son.

Mom has a plan. A very bad plan. It probably involves Vodka.

Dad knows more than he is saying. Spit it out dad!

Katja Sleep Study. This ought to go over well.

They put that probe right on Nancy’s forehead pimple.

Dr. Roger Rabbit. Puhhhlease Freddy…

Look what I got! I got his hat…I hope his head is cold in scary dream world. Dick.

It’s real mom…touch it….PSYKE! NOPE…YOU CAN’T TOUCH IT!

Fred Krueger…it’s in the hat mom…and so are his old gross man hairs..

Nancy is going gray

Back when you could back hand your kids and not go to jail.

Noooo! Not the booze Nancy!. It’s ok…I have more…everywhere in the house apparently.

Dream Skills…I got mad dream skills.

Rules! Will they use them?

Glen: You ever read about the Balinese way of dreaming?
Nancy: No.
Glen: They got a whole system they call “dream skills”. So, if you have a nightmare, for instance like falling, right?
Nancy: Yeah.
Glen: Instead of screaming and getting nuts, you say, okay, I’m gonna make up my mind that I fall into a magic world where I can get something special, like a poem or song. They get all their art literature from dreams. Just wake up and write it down. Dream skills.
Nancy: And what if they meet a monster in their dream? Then what?
Glen: They turn their back on it. Takes away its energy, and it disappears.
Nancy: What happens if they don’t do that?
Glen: I guess those people don’t wake up to tell what happens.

Dream Skills. I got booby trap skills!

Bars on the windows…mom works fast. I mean like in a few hours she barred that whole place up.

Even put bars on the door window…like you could crawl through that.

That moment when mom asks you to go to the cellar with her.

A filthy child murderer.  The Lawyers got fat and the judges got famous.

YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! Don’t worry…mommy killed him.

Cut off shirts! ahhhh yeah! Thanks for the abs Glen.

Prisoner of Zendor? Zendar? Prisoner of Zenda!

7th Day of no sleep…11 is the record. -Nancy Says…well you got a timeline on your hands.

Whatever you do…Don’t Fall Asleep… CUT…oh yeah…that is so going in the trailer.

Miss Nude America…is that his mom or his Grandma?

Where the hell did Nancy have that Coffee Pot? it’s freaking plugged in and brewed!

No way is that Johnny Depp’s dad.

“You know what I think…I think that girl is a lunatic.” Glen’s Dad

Nancy done took so many pills she is a free bleeder. or is it the coffee.

How much Vodka does mom have stashed. I see where Nancy learned to hide beverages now.

Glenn’s dad is kind of a dick…and he is wearing some kind of cult necklace pendent.

Fred has a phone? Uh…yes…Hello…this is Fred.

Do you remember the DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince. Nightmare on my street?

 

Never. Ever. Ever. Answer a phone that is ripped out of the wall.

That phone has a tongue and it wants to lick you.

That poor phone…

Locked! Locked! Locked!

Who sleeps with a TV on their crotch?

Glenn got surcked into a bed hole.

That is a lot of blood.. Glenn is made of blood. like a whole trash can full. maybe 2.

Why did you call an ambulance? Haha…you don’t need a stretcher…you need a mop.

Hey papa…wave papa…hey papa.

How does Nancy know 20 minutes is the timeline? RULE

Is that a lifesaver? Butterscotch I hope?

Soooo…in 20 minutes time…she macgyvered booby traps…comforted mom.. 10 minutes…. fell asleep…found fred and return.

What is in that ambulance? that they need a siren. Blood for the bloodbank?

That cellar has everything. Dogs playing poker. Freddie’s knife glove. oooh…Vodka! Freddie’s Basement.

In the afterlife.. Fred collects souls

Everybody labels their stuff in this movie. Fred’s Hat. Glenn’s Headphones. Hall Monitor!

You my bitch now Freddie!!

Nancy “Home Aloned” Freddie

“Get my dad asshole!” – Nancy

Clueless parents…Clueless cops…

I would love to see all the Freddie falls.

“Daddy I did it!”

Burning foot prints…that is bad ass.

how many bed deaths are there?

What…you just saw your ex-wife get sucked into the abyss and you are going to leave your daughter in that room?

Wait…did she beat Freddie or did he beat her? Is Nancy dead?

I forgot about this ending! Is she still dreaming! Will I have to watch Part 2 to know?

Nightmare done.

 

Digital Tools Advice

 

What are your thoughts on the move me towards digital tools in
cartooning, i.e. Wacom tablets etc.? Do you search tools yourself? If
so, do you have any recommendations for a starter tablet?

Thanks for your help,
Ray Hernandez

Greetings Ray,

It took me almost a year to transition to digital when I finally “went for it.”

I started on a Wacom Intuos. I used that for years. Then I moved onto the Cintiq.

I tried a whole bunch of ‘non-wacom’ tablets over the years. Including Surface Pro and Wacom Stylus on the iPad. None of them came close to what Wacom delivered.

Sound like I am selling Wacom yet? They should be giving me money!

The plunge into the Cintiq is a pretty sizeable sum. But it does give you the ability to draw right onto the screen! A very natural transition from paper to digital.

But I’ll be honest, I wish I still had my Intuos. It took a while for my brain to understand that I was drawing on one surface and my art was appearing on another.

When I moved onto the Cintiq I felt like my hand was always in the way of what I was seeing. I never realized how stupid and big my hand was!

The other thing about the Cintiq is that unless you get the stand-alone models you will limited in your portability. You are chained to the location where you set that thing up.

I have the 13HD and it is somewhat “portable” but I have cables hanging everywhere. You got 3 cables. A standalone power, an HDMI cable and a USB cable. You don’t realize what a pain in the butt it is until your laptop is dying and you have to find 2 plugins to keep drawing.

Now the Intuos. It has 1 cable…a USB and it fits nicely over most keyboard laptops. So you can either put it in your lap or place it over your laptop keyboard and use the express keys and stylus to navigate just about on your laptop.

One last thing. Go larger if you have the budget. The “small” of any of these tablets is always going to be too small and is just going to cause frustrations. The reason is this: If you have a 15″ screen on your computer and you get a 6″ tablet then you really get this disconnect in your head. Let’s say you want to draw a circle on screen that is 1 inch in diameter. Well, on the tablet you are going to be drawing a circle as small as .5 inch or less according to how much smaller your tablet is than your screen.

I hope that at least gives you some insight. Perhaps too much insight! If you have a more specific question just let me know and I’ll shoot it out to you.

Also, it just occurred to me that this might be of interest to other artists. Mind if I use your question and it’s answer on my website at briandunaway.com and/or comicscoasttocoast.com?

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997) – Show Notes

 

INTRO:

Oh hi, and welcome to the Elder God Sanctum. We trust that you enjoyed your trip here in your  ball. We totally don’t think of you as hamsters.

Now, before we get started, there are a few rules:

Firstly, You get 3 questions per visit. That means you can ask 3 questions while you are here and any follow-up questions will need to be addressed in a subsequent visit.

Please be aware there is a cool down period for each visit. In other words you can’t just come in here and drop 3 questions, leave and come right back with 3 more questions.

Ain’t gonna happen.

Also, all disputes are handled through Mortal Kombat. So, like if your brother wants chicken for dinner but you want Pizza. Well, you got a Mortal Kombat on your hands.

Our reasoning is this: If you are dead… then you aren’t going to care about what’s for dinner. If your brother is eating chicken and you are dead…you are going to be like….whatever…I’m dead.

Now before you get upset and call us “unfair.” Us elder gods have rules as well.

Like, if you piss off 2 or more elder gods then we fold you up like a cheap dishrag and shove you up the butt of Motaro.

So, go ahead…ask your 3 questions and get back in your Habi-trail ball…err…transport ball…so we can get back to watching Scrubs.

So far so good. Mortal Kombat Song…Good. Mortal Kombat Logo. good. 1st Film recap…good.

Bunch of monks in front of a green screen….not the worst thing that has ever happened.

Not sure if special effects bad…or trying to use stylized recreation of Mortal Kombat.

Mother has a dead tooth.

I have the power Khan.

This is Saturday morning TV Bad.

This is dumb as dirt…but is a pretty good representation of the video game.

“You hide behind a human?”

This is another one of them “The actors trusted that the scene they were filming was going to look good.”

You killed Cage! Ahhh hell nah! Pretty sure we are going to see a Zombie Cage.

Wonder if Khan failed out of Chiropractor School?

One Realm

Mother is resurrected…that gives us hope for Luke Cage.

The Elder Gods do not know.

6 Days before Annihilation.

Rayden has no powers in out world.

We are the only hope and we must act as a team. So we got to get past our differences.

Did we mention the team thing?

Need Jaxx!

We have harnessed the hot air to travel in our speed balls….

That is some Quake sounding electricity

I have no use for excuse!

We don’t walk…we flip or slide in Netherworld.

Oh wow…he knows our weakness. Do not underestimate the power of the human spirit! I got one of them!

The whole effects budget was spent on Katana’s Fan Blades…as it should be.

Sub Zero Wins!

That sure seems like a lot of effort to make a snow bridge when everybody has long jump skills.

Subzero and Scorpion is my favorite dynamic of all the characters…which ain’t saying much…but there it is.

Everybody knows Scorpion has the teleporting skill. You truly are a sucker if you didn’t see that coming.

Do we still say “Yeah. That is what I am talking about?”

Shah What?

Sonya Blade…crop top and shorts…great uniform

Why do droids need dreds? Dreds for Droids?

“Yeah..now what?”

Jaxx has a lot of questions and answers about the word “What”

is Sonya a chemist?

Ahh…the old self destruct upon death sequence.

Got to give it to Sonya and Jaxx for actually jumping away from an explosion.

ha! 2nd tier boss repeats 1st tier boss “no mercy” phrase.

Hey…2nd tier boss…you are dispensing judgment that you were dismissed from.

What is my Animality?

Look here apache warrior (Night Wolf) ….I don’t need you. ok…I need you.

Dream state! Time for the drugs.

Should have taken the slow way..probably involved a peace pipe and smoking instead of the back of an axe.

Is he Reptilian? spoiler!

Hi Jade. Perhaps you should keep that animal skin on…it’s snowing out here. Now let’s get it on!

Jade…a woman scorned.

Should have taken the slow way.

I am a bit of a Asian Martial Arts snob. I only enjoy watching Asians fight in the martial arts.

Thank you for the spit fluid. By the way…I would way prefer spit from a mouthful of water over a mucus filled snot spit.

Who’s Johnny? Jaxx say…he ask in that special way…Who Johnny, Jaxx say.

Sai Cam! Hey! You ain’t Katana!

ha! Now we are mud wrestling? Aight. But I do kind of enjoy the tire break remix song.

You released my dragon!

As always…you are granted 3 questions with the gods. Followed up by 2 questions of our own.

Jaxx likes Jades legs.

Rayden thinks Jaxx is sexy as well.

What an annoying power…screaming to destory.

These bad guys laugh too much.

It’s a trap.

Bad guys who want others to bow at his feet.

I always enjoyed Baraka in the game…here…he looks like a troll.

Sheeva and Motaro were kind of disappointing in this movie.

Yo, Forget your gods.

 

Your dad is an elder god?

Sha-Khan is my brother!

No matter how stupid this movie gets….I still get excited when I hear them say something from the game…like “Finish Him”

Something to fight for!

Do they ever answer why they keep letting the good guys live? What we the benefit of letting them live?

This movie is a family affair. Mother’s against mother. Brother against Brother. Brother against Centaur.

If you are going to build a team. you have to have conflict between the characters in the team. Johnny Cage was good at that. But they killed him in the first 5 minutes. The same reason TMNT are always at odds. Because when they finally cast off conflict they are able to win.

haha…what the hell is Liu Kang?

This is perhaps the worstest CG in a movie from it’s time period

Shao-Kahn is portrayed as a buffoon through most of the movie. Not much of a finale.

Like folding up a god. it’s weird.

High Five Jax!

Fire and Water have restored Rayden? That’s 2 elements.

Escape From New York (1981) – Show Notes

Intro:

Oh hi! This week’s movie is one of them Future/Past dealies. You know, where they make a film in 1981 but it takes place in 1998 but you are watching it in 2017 and you are thinking how it is going to be at least 2018 before the president builds a wall around New York. You know….one of them movies.

Also, did you ever consider: this is a movie about a one-eyed Snake being inserted into a dirty hole who is just trying to pull out before his head explodes? Dirty Carpenter is always dirty. 400%

The happiest Cabaret with Kazoos and Pianos ever. at least Ernest is having a good time.

“Hey you don’t wanna walk around down there snake..” – Something that has never been said before.

Hey, I just realized….Snake Pliskin on has one good eye. That makes him a one eyed snake.

Hey nice boots chief…I’m walking

Ernest P. Whorl is the President?

President is easy to find. He’s in a big red egg. Unless he left the egg…in which case you are screwed.

A lot of people running around like roaches before our oblivious hero.

That is not how you listen to a cassette tape.

She is stroking that gun

I like that they went through all the trouble of making a clock that is labeled back at the headquarters for the countdown.

Scott Johnson made me laugh with this

Booo…Snake…Booo

He crawled into the cage pretty willingly. I would crawl back out once I saw giant diaper man.
