Mike S's Top Four Graphic Novels to Adapt!


We live in an age where comic books are a major source of television and cinematic entertainment.

In light of this, I would like to submit my "Top Four List of Graphic Novels to Adapt"  For this list, I'm going to focus on stand-alone stories that have no connections to mainstream comic book series (ie- no Batman story arc, no Marvel "What If?" stories, etc).

1.  "Maus" & "Maus II" by Art Spiegelman.  This story follows the experiences of Spiegelman's father during the Holocaust.  It is a powerful, poignant, and moving story that would be perfect for a mature animated feature.

2.  "From Hell" by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell.  I know it's already been made as a less than stellar Johnny Depp film- but I put it on my list, because it is a fascinating graphic novel about Jack the Ripper.  Instead of a movie, though, I would be inclined to do it as a mini/maxi series on TV.

3.  "Trillium" by Jeff Lemire.  This is a well written Sci-Fi story about two lovers trying to cross time to be together... and possibly save the world.  This would also be great as a TV mini-series.

4.  "Apocalypse Nerd" by Peter. Baggeman.  A fairly short read about a small group of nuclear apocalypse survivors doing their best to adapt to the new world.

So, there we have four graphic novels that I think should be adapted.  What do you think?

Review: The Proposal (2018)

"Admit it: that was cool as fuck."

Star Marc Natoli says that line about half way through the action short The Proposal, and there's no better way to sum the film up. Although just 10 or so minutes long, The Proposal is everything an action fan could ask for.

In fact, the only complaint I've got is I wanted more!

Millennium After the Millennium, Mission: Impossible - Fallout and Teen Titans Go! To the Movies

Aside from having the longest episode title in Basement history, the latest entry in our eight-year-long series also marks the first time Shawn has not appeared on the show!

Yup, no Shawn for you! He's on vacation.

But the Mad Twit Mike S sits down with Jason for this, the extended cut of Friday's segment on the mighty Radio NL 610 AM Kamloops, featuring an interview with filmmakers Troy Foreman and Jason Morris about their documentary Millennium After the Millennium.
