Let’s just chat for a second before we get into today’s comic, the heaviest one in the whole thing. After this we only have a few more days of postings left.

Anyroad, there’s a chance that BIG HERO 6 is still playing in a theater near you.

Go goddamned see it.

Seriously, the movie is ridiculously good, and the trailer doesn’t in any way express its complexities.

If you don’t like it, I’ll…dunno, maybe I’ll do something for you. And then I’ll tick the box next to your name that says “COLD AND EMOTIONLESS.”

In related news, my latest bad movie watching was Gor. Oddly, I could only find a Spanish-language trailer for it.

If you’re not familiar with the world of Gor…well, it’s not entirely pleasant. I’d say more on it, but I’ve refused to ever read any book in the series.

The movie managed to be both offensive and inoffensive. It’s was mostly a standard 80’s sword-and-sorcery film, but with a lot more women tied up and treated like objects than one would expect. And hair. My god, Gor invented hairspray but not hairstyling.

RIGHT! On to the most troubling bit of The Wizard’s Lesson. After this, it’s only a tiny bit more to wrap things up, then on to our discussion about the lesson.

As always, click the pic to embiggen.

First, the last installment I posted:

Wizard's Lesson birth
And now…

Wizard's Lesson brains dashed out
Wizard's Lesson he is back
So that happened.

I’ll be shifting hosts in a few days, so benchilada.net may be down for a little bit.

While I have no doubt that you’ll survive, I do want you to know that if you need anything while I’m gone, there are other resources that can help.

Can I just say how much I love the barter culture? I recently put up a request for a bowling-ball on the local Craigslist–Nadja’s making a gazing-ball for the back yard–and was happy to hear that a person was willing to go swapsies for it.

As such, I paid this:

Daredevil Man Without Fear and All Star Superman - I'm bartering these for a bowling ball

For this:

Brunswick Bowling Ball for Barter

It’s a great world.

Speaking of great things, here’s a movie you’ll either love or hate, depending on how awesome you are. It is NOT what you think you’re expecting; instead, it’s freaky and terrifying. Watching it with particular intoxicants may result in your experience being more visceral.

I think that’s it for now.

Last night's movie at Stone-Robot Enterprises was for nostalgia. It's dated in a way that makes you alternate between wry smiles and painful cringe, but the rewatch was actually kinda fun.

Oddly, the worst part was that Edwards's character being dumber than a sack of used condoms actually made the bumbling aspect LESS believable.

Also bad: that we only see Fiorentino's breasts for about one second in a less-than-cool situation. If you're gonna film five sex scenes then you gotta throw us some candy.

What's the last movie you watched?

Thank you, [profile] g0dz17la , for pointing me to this trailer.

I'd heard about this movie but did not know that such a beautiful preview was available.

I'm sorry, Speed Racer trailer, but I've found someone else.

Yes, I will bring a pint of rum to this movie.

But I'm not sure I'm going to need it.

Seriously, I want to hump this trailer.

Special thanks to [profile] madamjuggernaut for providing me with a clip of a CLEARLY BRAIN-DAMAGED MAGNETO from the 70's Fantastic Four cartoon. I love his final outburst.

If that isn't enough for you, here's a trailer for the 1994 Roger Corman version of THE FANTASTIC FOUR.

One of my most favoritest movies ever, and easily one of the most beautiful ever shot.

Original Trailer:

And then for something coming at the end of this year.

Positively cannot wait for December 18th.
Via [profile] thewalkingman:

Don't know if this will be anything even remotely resembling good, but I'll be there for it at the theatre, probably with a pint of rum for my coke.

With Madd Thanks to [profile] man_size...


I need to go change my underwear. For more than one reason.

Of course, I have no time.
But here you go.

Many of you have never heard of Takeshi “Beat” Kitano or Takashi Miike.
They are Japanese directors/screenwriters.
They are both brilliant and insane, the latter more so, but still…

In any event, they’ve teamed up:
Look HERE!

Watch the trailer and tell me you wouldn’t kick me to see that movie.
Hang back…most of you would kick me for no reason anyway, but you get my point…

Need recommendations on which of their movies to watch? Let me know…

Who thinks it’s funny that Patrick Spacek posted something about Miike on the same day…
