So normally I don't review DVD's, but this is a special case. It's a short animated film by local filmmaker Frank Wu. It didn't make it into Cinequest, but Wu was there handing out DVD's and I promised I'd write it up if he gave me one (over drinks with the cast, including a model of Guidolon. Which reminds me, somewhere there's a digital photo of me choking the chicken). Anyway, I finally got time to watch it, and it's crazy and hilarious.
Guidolon, voiced by Cinequest legend Chris Garcia, is a movie monster making a remake of a movie based on his life. The 70's original was a huge bomb, but with the new wave of 70's remakes the studio has given him a chance to remake it. Of course, there's still insane freakin' problems, mostly studio interference. But it's nothing the love of a good triceratops and a Deus ex Mexicana ending can't solve. And for the record, XXXX Line temporarily expunged for competition reasons XXXX is the most freakin' romantic line ever (which could explain why I'm single).
