Bonesaw Podcast: Episode 5 – Egokill’s Brian Schermicide

Episode 5 gets rude and crude with Egokill’s Brian Schermicide as we speak of 90’s cartoons, classic wrestling and metal in the most unapologetic way.

Trailer Feedback: Popeye

Although the world isn’t exactly clamoring for another throwback animation movie, Sony is giving us Popeye anyway.

While the trailer does not look terrible, everyone’s favorite sailor is noticeably missing some key features: his signature pipe and anchor tattoos.

Perhaps the film will focus on a younger Popeye embarking on an early venture that leads him to his first encounter with the love of his life, Olive Oyl.

This also could be Popeye’s first battle with Bluto over Ms. Oyl as well.

Despite the lack of spinach or Wimpy, it is a nice touch that Popeye features Eugene The Jeep – a mystical animal that is described as “living in a three dimensional world, but really belonging to a fourth dimensional world” by Professor Brainstine in a 1936 Popeye comic strip.

The animation looks fun and fluid, the quirky humor of Popeye is captured nicely, and the action is reminiscent of the classic cartoons (sans spinach) – with Popeye literally throwing the kitchen sink at Bluto’s goons.

We may not need another Popeye flick, but this doesn’t look that bad at first glance.

Trailer Feedback: The Spongebob Movie – Sponge Out of Water

Loveable Nicktoon Spongebob Squarepants and pals have another movie coming out in 2015.

A CGI movie.

While “Sponge Out of Water” will start in the animated style everyone is used to, the cast of undersea critters will emerge to the surface and become “real” in a Smurf sense (rather than the style of the actual show; which occasionally merges live action and 2-D animation).

The animated section looks like it will entertain the masses as it takes after the show, but the CGI/live action portion that looks to be the majority of the film is already overbearing and cramming as many mediocre to unfunny gags as possible.

All because the Krabby Patty recipe is missing.

Who wanted this?
