We are at JJ Bohemia’s in Chattanooga, TN. Joel Ruiz and Chris Dortch are my guests and we talk gaming and movies. It’s LIVE, it’s crazy and I was tricked into doing it. Worked out fantastic. Enjoy!

    I might've stuck A BOY AND HIS DOG in there somewhere...the not completely successful, but not terrible, attempt to do Harlan Ellison's novella on film. Like CLOCKWORK and SLAUGHTERHOUSE (much less APES, LOGAN and FINAL), it suffers in comparison to the original text.

    The TIME MACHINE filmmakers lost all the satirical conceits, mostly around the Moorlocks and Eloi, in the Wells novella, that is...

    Well...ZARDOZ, I gather from a glance at the tweets, has been vilified yet again...it's actually one of the better attempts at a(n intentionally) funny sf film of the '70s, taking as it does some of the satirical conceits of Well's THE TIME MACHINE and running with them in ways that the various filmmakers have managed to blow altogether (even the title pun is pretty damned amusing when revealed)...but, then, the satirical content of even such heavily satirical novels as Boulle's PLANET OF THE APES (Rod Serling kept a bit in scripting, the production managed to water that down), Nolan's LOGAN'S RUN and Moorcock's THE FINAL PROGRAMME tended to get sliced away in film, much the way they dumb down Alan Moore's work. The better sf humor films in the '70s tended to be geeky (DARK STAR) or shticky (YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, SLEEPER) but only a few got to be particularly satirical, and often in somewhat muddy ways (ZARDOZ, DEATH RACE 2000, SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE...all controversial in one way or several, all probably not quite what they could be, even as good as they are--by me). And then you start to see the drop-off, as one goes in the direction of the first (much less the much later second) adaptation of THE STEPFORD WIVES, the second adaptation of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, and...sigh...the likes of STARCRASH...

    But ZARDOZ is pretty funny, and intentionally goofy fun.

    (and...for a while this was a crusade of mine, 'cause it would come up repeatedly somehow...apes ain't monkeys. Monkeys ain't apes. I know, pedant. But dogs ain't bears.)
