BMMI Episode 057: Funkel’s Friends

funkelsfriends_poster

This movie has a deceptively terrible CGI goblin as the lead. But don’t let that fool you, beneath the rugged, T-posing exterior, lies a heartwarming journey of finding what matters in life and finding good friends. Funkel the goblin has only known an unfair life of cruelty from people that find him so ugly they throw trash at him. They can’t help it. The one time he retaliates with chomping some fingers, a wizard decides to punish him with a slowly progressing curse of petrification. But this wizard just gave Funkel a life purpose: make him regret placing that curse. What Funkel doesn’t know is, it takes friends of all kinds to help you cross a forest and fight a wizard when you’re stuck in a T-pose. See, it’s a story thing, not skimping on animation or anything like that.

BMMI Episode 055: My Date with My Manager’s Spectre

mydatewith_poster

My Date with My Manager’s Spectre is the result of confusing the Disney films My Date with the President’s Daughter and Mom’s Got a Date with a Vampire. We threw in a general “My Authority Figure is A Specific Monster” and did a spin on all three. Who’s that beautiful, definitely corporeal person that shows up to work everyday with the manager, hangs around, then leaves with the manager? No, it’s not the manager’s girlfriend, it’s his revenant. You know, a revenge ghost that’s haunting him, making sure all of his days are bad or at least mildly inconvenient. And this revenge ghost thinks you’re pretty cute. If you ever wanted to mix danger, ghosts, Burger King, and the kid friendly rom-coms of early 2000s Disney, this movie’s the perfect match.
