204: SFFCH – Wizards [1977]

204 Wizards

Wizards [1977]
Rich wanted a little more ‘adult’ about his animation this week on Spoiler Filled and thats certainly what he got with his choice of Ralph Bakshi’s science fantasy epic Wizards. Although it seems that by making an animation more ‘adult’ all you do is draw lots of boobs. Fairies, ‘Columbo’ impersonating wizards, robot assassins named Peace and just so much more weirdness abounds in this allegorical, apocalyptic affair.

157: SFFCH – Moomins on the Riviera

157 Moomins on the Riviera

We do like to challenge ourselves with pronouncing difficult foreign names here at Spoiler Filled, so this time we travel to Finland to wrap our vocal chords around some of the people behind Moomins on the Riviera, the latest adaptation from 2014 of the eccentric creations of Tove Jansson. Pirates, Stockholm Syndrome, artistic aristocrats, tangents about aardvarks, shark biting, disguising dogs as cats, living under boats, insulting insect infestation, and so, SO many more insanities abound in our discussion of this quirky and witty societal satire.
