Classics of Crap Volume 44: Nothing But Trouble

     Hey guys, sorry I missed last week's Classic of Crap, I was animating my Empire Strikes Back Uncut segment. So, to make it up, I picked a real Grade-A stinker for you this week. 1991's comedy flop, Nothing But Trouble.
       Dan Aykroyd had a stellar run on Saturday Night Live, followed by a string of brilliant comic performances in such films as Ghostbusters and Trading Places. But all that came to a screeching halt with this ill-advised passion project. As writer, director, and star, Aykroyd put it all on the line with this movie, but sadly for him, it was one of the biggest critical and commercial bombs of the year. I suppose he intended it to be a comic riff on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but it is one of the most misbegotten movies in the Classics of Crap series.
      Seen by many during its long run on cable TV in the 90's, this movie was not easily forgotten. Ghoulish makeup and nauseating characters, including two greasy fat humanoids named Bobo and Lil' Debbull, make this movie a queasy, awful viewing experience. This movie has to be seen to be believed, if nothing else, for Aykroyd, in full monster makeup, playing the Judge, eating a foot long hotdog wearing a penis nose prosthetic. There's some nightmare fuel for you. So, am I recommending this flick? Sure, I'd say give it a shot on a rainy afternoon. It beats a trip through Mr. Bonestripper any day.

The Empire Strikes Back: Animated

Here's my submission to a fan remake of The Empire Strikes Back for Starwarsuncut.com
The plan is to give 15 second clips of Empire to artists/filmmakers and have them recreate it in their own style. If you know me, you know there's not a movie I love more than Empire, so it was a pleasure to work on this. If I had the time, talent, and inclination, I would animate the entire movie. The lipsync is a little off in the embedded clip, which is a pity, since I took the better part of a decade to get it just right. >:/

It sucks to be Frog Boy

Sketch Carding

Hey guys, I did some sketch cards for DC's New 52 and Walking Dead in the past few months, and now that the sets are out (or, almost out) I can show you my work. I have two artist proof cards left for Walking Dead, so if you want to commission one from me, shoot me an email and we can work it out. First come, first served. I haven't received my AP's for DC yet, but when I do, I'll let you guys know.

Classics of Crap Volume 43: Samurai Cop

Hi guys and thanks for reading my bi-weekly column, Classics of Crap, where we look at the worst, most hilarious movie failures ever.  Today we are celebrating Samurai Cop, a movie I discovered thanks the gentlemen over at Red Letter Media. They highly recommended it, and boy oh boy, were they right. This movie is hi-lar-ious. Every line reading, every action scene, every everything about this movie is so wrong, it just becomes so right. This is bad movie lovers paradise. I honestly went round and round trying to think of one image to encapsulate the wonderment that is Samurai Cop. Finally I settled on one of the most memorable exchanges between Samurai Cop and a horny nurse. If you haven't seen the clip: DO SO IMMEDIATELY. Trust me, you don't want to miss this one.
