Heavy Metal (1981) (part 1 of 9)

The Cast of Characters:
Richard Romanus as Harry CanyonHarry Canyon (Richard Romanus). Cab driver in a grungy future New York City. Just think every film noir anti-hero cliché, and you’ll get the idea.
John Candy as DenDen (John Candy). Teenage nerd turned muscular nude hero. Just think every Conan rip-off fantasy hero cliché, and you’ll get the idea.
Eugene Levy as Captain SternnCaptain Sternn (Eugene Levy). Smug jackass guilty of everything in the book. Just think every jerkass sci-fi captain cliché, and you’ll get the idea.
George Touliatos as The PilotThe Pilot (George Touliatos). War plane pilot who has to deal with a bunch of zombies. I’d continue the joke, but he’s really not enough of a character to even bother.
Alice Playten as GloriaGloria (Alice Playten). Walking pair of breasts with questionable taste in jewelry. Just think every dim bulb secretary cliché, and you’ll get the idea.
TaarnaTaarna. Revenge-seeking warrior, with boobs! Just think every strong, silent fantasy hero cliché, and you’ll get the idea. Plus, boobs!
Percy Rodriguez as The Loc-NarThe Loc-Nar (Percy Rodriguez). The source of all evil in the universe, or so it likes to brag. In reality, just a pathetic excuse to tie a bunch of lame stories together.
