It's 1994!  Marvel was still making straight-to-TV and video movies in the mid-90's, DC was pumping out increasingly iffy Batmans, and studio heads were greenlighting the costumed heroes of their youths.  In an era before X-Men, Spider-Man and Iron Man reset what we thought of as superhero entertainment, we got some pretty interesting stuff!

Starring Alec Baldwin, Penelope Ann Miller, John Lone, Ian McKellan, Jonathan Winters, Tim Curry, Peter Boyle - and more! 

It's a Post-Batman splurge into the pulp world that spawned the very idea of comic book superheroes!  Delve into the 1990's grappling with early 20th century takes on Eastern Mysticism!  Watch Alec Baldwin try not to be handsome!  Behold: Penelope Ann Miller!

I had forgotten Taylor Dayne had a single supporting the film! Here's the video - which contains scenes from the film and Ms. Dayne herself.

Wild horses couldn't stop me from participating.

It looks like we may be able to participate from Ottawa as well. I'm not sure if Amanda will be able to stay awake for the whole thing but will give it the old college try. When I approached her with the idea, she let me know about her old college tradition of going to see the worst movie playing on Easter Sunday since no one had classes the next day and since this is Easter weekend she's excited to revive the tradition.

Well, I can guarantee Amanda will be disappointed because this movie is AMAZING. No, I seriously like it. I am not sure it is actually *good*, but I always found it to be goofy fun.

Great news about participation from the snowy north! Now it's an international affair!
