    So, this movie is all about “Spoon Theory” where you measure you measure your depleted life energy in spoons?

    So, we’re still continuing on our “Whatever happened to Full Moon Pictures?” theme, I see…

    But there is no spoon.

    For the record, the Don Adams listed as writer/director/producer is not the Don Adams of Get Smart fame, but you probably guessed that. Executive producer Charles Band was executive producer of Robot Holocaust and The Day Time Ended and producer of Laserblast. None of the actors were involved with any MST3K films, with Ariauna Albright being the only one who isn’t a member of the Single Digits Club. The majority have this movie as their sole screen acting credit. Sad, really.

    Would you believe it?!

    Eric: “Whatever happened to Full Moon Pictures?”

    Eventually, when I care a bit more, I’ll attempt to find out how many Full Moon films have been riffed so far, and then I’ll lose interest and stop, and eventually, when I’m suitably bored, I’ll resume the quest, and then…

    Did you know that many Full Moon films occur within the same fictional universe?

    “Do they?”

    Well, I’m glad you asked…

    Here’s a list of Full Moon films. Still plenty to go:

    Charles Band created a Cinematic Universe of super-heroes long before it was considered cool to do so. :-)

    Troma Films (home of the Toxic Avenger) also has the same sort of Cinematic Universe set in Tromavilla, New Jersey (real world site: Boonton, New Jersey), as does Low Budget Pictures (LBP) (whose films you’re probably better off not knowing about but they have a few super-heroes who appear in multiple movies and that’s the only qualification for having a Cinematic Universe), set in Bonejack Heights, New York (which is apparently a real place but then, so is Spider-Man’s New York City).

    The only fictional named-city-setting that I’ve been able to find for Full Moon is Pahoota, California. Yes, scenic Pahoota: The City You’ll Have to Find for Yourself Because It’s Too Embarrassing to Ask for Directions to It.

    There MIGHT be others but I haven’t come across them yet which means that there probably are, in fact, no others because I’m really very quite diligent when I want to be. ;-)

    ADDENDUM:

    Kind of a shame that IMHO all three directors take their work WAY too non-seriously. They could collaborate on a movie that features all three sets of super-heroes joining together (no hero-vs-hero fights, please) to fight some As Yet Undetermined Threat. Action, drama, spectacle, everything we’ve come to expect from a Cinematic Universe movie…

    …except that it’s all displayed (with REASONABLE levels of seriousness) within their usual money constraints and it’ll go directly to DVD.

    It’s not you, it’s that there just isn’t much to post here anymore.
