HMPOD.com Podcast 83 — Residential Evils: The landlord cometh

Wooden human actors vs. computer-generated characters

Sadly, comparing Paul W.S. Anderson‘s latest sequel, Resident Evil: Retribution, and Japanese anime feature Resident Evil: Damnation, is a bit like comparing soft, mealy apples and mouldy, dry oranges. Neither is very palatable, at least according to Jerry & Mark, hosts of this here episode of The Horror Movie Show. Of course, fans of lovely Milla Jovovich will be delighted to see the ultra-skinny action hero back in her S&M gear. But the action is strictly from repeatsville.

Also on the bill is a discussion of the amusing Eddie the Sleepwalking Cannibal and Airborne, a flying ghost picture costarring the original Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill. We all know what Obi-wan advised young Skywalker to do when confronted with a large spaghetti monster: “Use the forks, Luke!” No, it’s not very funny, but them’s the breaks.

The world will note that The Amazing Harpo, wheaten terrier extraordinaire, passed away quietly at home with her closest friends cuddling her, October 1, 2012. According to several sources, the five-year-old Harpo was reported to be the “world’s best dog” and “a very sweet, clever girl.” She is remembered by her many friends & large extended family. See you around, puppy, if we’re lucky.

  1. Sorry to hear about Harpo. At least she was at home and not surrounded by strangers and cages at the vet.

    Autopilot can land a plane. I haven’t listened to the entire podcast so maybe you already know this :)

  2. Thank you, Andrea. Harpo was a great dog & only ever got the best. She is sorely missed.

    As for autopilot landing planes, well… you can hear my entire apology to Mark at the start of the next episode. I had no idea. But having no idea has never stopped me from mouthing off before.

    I still think I’m correct, just not in this Universe.
