Adult Swim Animation: Allure

This is a truly bizarre little stop motion animation that I stumbled across on the web.  

Adult Swim Animation: The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto

Adult (Cat) Swim Animation: Terror Toons

I promised the top cat of the house, who is a huge horror movie fan, that I would play this film tonight, because she loves it, despite that it's really, really low budget shlock in the first degree.  It's her reward for putting up with a day "Peanut movies!"

Weena Approved (which in this case, admittedly, doesn't mean much!)

Adult Swim Animation: South Park: The Movie

Adult Swim Animation: Dead Space: Downfall (2008)

With The Peanut dropped off at his Goopy's, it's time from some adult animated action.  First up is a space horror, with some very, very gnarly looking aliens in it.  I've not seen this before, but it looks like a great place to start!

Monsters "Bloopers"

Weena's Choice: Avatar

After putting up the Peanut's movies all day, Weena, mistress of the universe, get a movie of her own to watch while we go see Monsters University.

Monster's University

This may be The Peanut's most anticipated movie EVER...he's finally getting a chance to see on the big in 2D (3D can wait for another day).

Despicable Me

With the sequel coming out next week, we'd thought we'd give this a whirl.  It's new to the household, which Peanut doesn't really cotton to, he usually warms up to a new film after it's been played two or more times...but I've got the "it's so fluffy" ringtone on my, well everyone in the house is familiar with at least a little bit of the movie....not to mention annoyed to boot!

Scooby Doo And Camp Scare

Really no day of animated frights would ever be complete without some Scooby!


The Peanut has chosen a Brad Bird double feature.  This is, after all, one of his all time favorites!

The Incredibles

Taking "The Peanut" to see the new Monsters movies later on we are celebrating with a day of animation...and mostly Peanut choices...this is his first choice of the day.

The Last Stop

This is a Weena's choice.  She loves this film!  It sorta doesn't really make sense as a mystery, but what I like about it is all the snow.  This is the first day of summer, and here in the drought stricken south it is not exactly a cause for real celebration.  So bring on the snow...and the Adam Beach!

Death Proof

I know that Quentin Tarantino famously said last fall that he regards this as his "worst" film while he was making the rounds promoting Django Unchained; but I have to admit that it is actually one of my personal favorites of his.  It has a great stripped down quality to it.  It stars amongst a whole host of other people--including his favorite stunt woman Zoe Bell, who he wrote the film for--Rosario Dawson who is Seminole/Indeh (Apache)/Taino/Afro-Cubano & Irish.  Tarantino himself, who shows up in the film as Warren the bartender, is of Tsalagi (Cherokee)/Irish/Italian heritage.


This Robert Rodriguez comedic crime thriller first made it's appearance as one of the fake trailers in Grindhouse the horror/crime double feature that he made with Quentin Tarantino.  Of those four trailers, this is the only one to actually be made into a real film (hey!  Eli Roth....where's your Thanksgiving slasher flick??).  It stars Rodriguez's cousin Danny Trejo who is of Yoeme (Yaqui) descent (Danny's son Gilbert also makes an appearance).  It also stars mestiza actresses Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez (no relation) and Chicano mestizo funny man Richard "Cheech" Marin...and a whole lot of Mexican and Tejano extras!

Route 666

This zombie silliness stars Lou Diamond Phillips who is of Tsalagi (Cherokee)/Hawaiian/Filipino/Chinese/Irish/Scottish/Spanish AND Japanese decent....that's a lot of ancestors!  Plus, the real Route 666 is located in Arizona just around the Navajo Reservation area.....and, well, this has "road zombies" too!!  Not to mention that Gary Farmer has a bit part, serving up peyote tea.

Dead Man

This Jim Jarmusch film from 1995 not only revolves around a strange tale of the life of a very eccentric Native American, "Nobody," it also stars several actors with Native heritage in various roles (not all of them actually Native characters).  Along with Gary Farmer, who plays Nobody and is Cayuga, it also stars Johnny Depp, as "William Blake," who has Tsalagi (Cherokee) & Dineh (Navajo) heritage.  In bit roles are Billy Bob Thornton, who is part Choctaw, and Cree actresses Michelle Thrush as Nobody's Girlfriend (in fact, some of the lines in the film are in the Cree language).
