Mr. Mendo is back to take on yet another overrated indie film: Donnie Darko, the needlessly obtuse story of a schizophrenic boy, the 6-foot rabbit that visits him in the night, and the jet engine that falls on him. Also, there’s some stuff in here about time travel and the end of the world. And Patrick Swayze is a child molesting motivational speaker. This synopsis makes more sense than the movie.
An Interview with Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment
“Yes sir, Lloyd’s come a long way from his days as a location executive, to the head of the longest running independent movie company in America. Troma’s movies cover almost every subject matter, with lots of sex and violence thrown in, all for budgets that wouldn’t buy lunch in most studios.”Better Call Saul: So, that was season one...
“Odds are, we’re going to be waiting at least three years or so before any of this matters.”American Sniper is not the real Chris Kyle, and that’s okay
“I kind of hate that people are assuming that the film is trying to sanctify Chris Kyle by portraying him not as he was, but as, well, Bradley Cooper trying to finally win an Oscar. ”Pink Lady... and Jeff “Episode #4”
“This week’s guests are Florence Henderson, Lorne Greene, Boomer the Dog, another music video by Blondie, and Sid Caesar! Why yes, this was the episode where they just gave up. Why do you ask?”Why the Airlines have Bigger Problems than Fat Movie Directors! by Lloyd Kaufman
“The recent flap about Kevin Smith, director of Clerks and Chasing Amy, being chased off an airplane because he is too fat is kind of hilarious. A Troma maxim of screenwriting is that fat + fart = funny, and I am certain that Kevin Smith, the fatty that he is, probably farted at the time he was the ejected = ha ha!”An Interview with Piers Anthony
"But for the most part, he's gotten a bad rap. Sure, his books are pervy to the extreme (not that I'm complaining), but his characters are remarkably easy to spend time with, so if you can keep your sensibilities from being offended too much in the first few chapters of any given Xanth story, it's worth it in the end."
