    Episode 240: Megaforce LIVE from Montreal!

    So this is more of a personal revelation than a C&O. I went into this movie pretty cold, I knew about the flying motorcycle scene but not much else. Much like with Fateful Findings, I spent the first fifteen minutes with major déjà vu before pausing to confirm my suspicions that this was indeed filmed in Southern Nevada. And then the end battle happened, and holy shit, this was filmed in my backyard (so to speak). No wonder we have trouble keeping a garden.

    Episode 239 - Cool World

    I think teen(?) neighbor was just a fan of Deebs' work and stoked that he was living/lived next door. Her taking any excuse to go over and see him/hang out with him was pretty on-brand for being a teenage girl and meeting someone you admire. The mom was just being a good parent and humoring her in going over there when Deebs and Holli return from Cool World, then probably gave her daughter an earful when they got home about hanging around weirdos. Can relate from personal experience.

    Ah yes, thank you! I'll have to remember to disable it in the future.

    Episode 239 - Cool World

    On Paul's thought that the casino/gambling hall in the open could have been Vegas's first, it just might be? There were illegal gambling halls all over Nevada decades prior, but if where it's located in the 40s is supposed to have some correlation to Deeb's house in the 90s, I think the building could have been the Northern Club, which was the first to receive a gaming license. It's fudging things by a few blocks though, and that may be giving this movie way too much credit. They probably just had Harris materialize in the last place Deebs/the multi-verse rift was/the easiest set to film in.

    Episode 239 - Cool World

    I have no idea how I keep making my replies so janky. I don't know what it says about me that (I think?) I understand this messy movie. So Cool World is an alternate dimension, Deebs didn't create any of it. They make mention a few times that Cool World has always existed and that humans have passed through it very briefly. We also see that at least one film from our universe has made it into Cool World. My assumption is that this happens after Doc Whiskers opens the dimensional portal into our 1940s and sucks Harris in. The rift between dimensions is now tenuous and certain individuals- the movie doesn't explain but let's just say through dreams or comas or mental breaks or some unknown set of circumstances- can pass briefly between worlds. This is how Deebs is entering Cool World prior to his introduction in the movie. He thinks he's just dreaming up a fantasy world and makes a comic series off of it. Doc Whiskers probably had the sense that beings from each universe cannot come together because it would start the destruction of one or both worlds. Time travel stories all have that rule about not interacting with past or future versions of yourself, I'm not sure if that rule applies to multi-verse stories as well, I don't really read those. At some point after settling Harris into Cool World, Doc Whiskers enters our world as he previously had planned and takes the spike with him. Holli wants to enter the world she's seeing in the film(s) and though Noids; she has all Cool World has to offer and now wants what she can't have. I think she and Deebs start doodling out because they've broken the laws of physics in our universe and can't sustain form. But I'll give you this one; I have no idea if Harris knew he could come back to life as a doodle after being killed by a doodle. That's the only part that doesn't make sense.

    Episode 239 - Cool World

    I read a long time ago that after Bakshi saw what the studio was doing to the movie, he told the animators to just draw whatever they thought was funny.

    Episode 238.5 — Prequel to 239

    Understandable. I've only seen American Pop once with friends which they loved but I didn't. Cool World has a place in my heart because I saw it when I was a kid sneakily watching late night cable. It was too bizarre to look away from and felt like I was seeing some sort of anomaly I wasn't meant to. Plus the soundtrack. Who knows if the original idea for the movie before all the interference would have been better.

    Mods, please feel free to edit if I messed anything up, I was just so excited (I Kermit flailed) because we're finally getting Cool World! ::DJ airhorns:: You can also watch Cool World through Tubi. A part of me still feels like the initial Sonic trailer was a scam and intentionally bad to drum up outrage/press/general interest and the final product always existed.

    The Last Witch Hunter

    ::bump:: I think they'd have a fantastic time with this.

    Episode 237.5 — Prequel to 238

    If they are in need of a replacement, Vin's The Last Witch Hunter (2015) is available on through Tubi and I would imagine most library services, and it's pretty darn great.

    Episode 236.5 — Prequel to Episode 237

    It should have been retconned to a brother and sister. Just leave romance out entirely, especially since Green Goblin wasn't great at it.

    Episode 236.5 — Prequel to Episode 237

    All I remember from Valerian is that the cold open(?) on the pearl planet bummed me out, the invisible swap meet, and that they cast two people who could easily pass for brother and sister as the romantic leads.
