"... and God Spoke"

... and God Spoke (1993) is a mocumentary of two indie film makers, a producer and director, who have managed to secure studio money to make an epic film of the bible. Given the book sales, the producer figures the potential market is enormous. The first problem is casting, when they find out that even with a substantial budget, they can't get their first choices for God or Moses or the Virgin Mary. Their initial script, which covered the entire bible, old and new testament, seemed a little overly-ambitious even to them, so they cut out the boring parts. On the first day of shooting, they discovered that their Eve had a tattoo from her breasts to her crotch, and then that their snake was poisonous and not defanged. To top it off, their DP added a bunch of filters to symbolize what he saw as the dark days of mankind, resulting in a nearly black reel of film.

And so it went, from day one through the studio cuts and eventually dropping the project, to completing it with their own money. I don't want to give too much away, as most of the fun is in getting there, but to illustrate, Moses was played by Soupy Sales as Soupy Sales. Just before he takes his position to bring the commandments back from the mountain, the producer whispers something in his ear. Cameras roll, and he walks down with the stone tablets, and a six pack of coke. Seems the producer had made a deal for product placement.

The exposure comes early in the film, when they are talking about their first films, which included the immortal fictional classic, Nude Ninjas. Monique Parent, Ashley Rhey and Lisa Comshaw are topless and wielding swords in the included clip. IMDb readers have this at 6.0. I admit this is my sort of material, as I adore indie films, and am fascinated by the process of making them, but I enjoyed every moment of this film. This is a high C+, a very well made film for a limited audience.

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
    • A blue asterisk indicates the review is written by Tuna (or Junior or Brainscan, or somebody else besides me)
    • If there is no asterisk, I wrote it, but am too ashamed to admit it.

    'Caps and comments by Dann:

    "Blade: Trinity"
    I suspect people either like the Blade series, or they don't, and if you do, the third one will be enjoyable.

    Blade, a vampire hybrid, hunts and kills vampires. In this one, he's now wanted by the FBI (guess to them, dead vampires count), so he joins forces with a group called the Nightstalkers, ex-vampires whose goal is also to kill vampires. Things get really dicey when the baddest ass of them all, Dracula, shows up to play.

    The stories are as limited as the comic books they came from, but the action and special effects are top-notch, so I've enjoyed all three
