It’s a good story. Ask him to tell you it. He has since bought new stuff.

LAFF14_headerApr1

Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the Los Angeles Film Festival returns June 11–19 to L.A. LIVE. Don’t miss out on red carpet premieres, conversations, live music, free outdoor screenings and films from around the world. Meltdown Comics is proud to host the screenings of Jossy’s and Harmontown. In Jossy’s, five young women reluctantly agree to join a secret team of super heroes and battle intergalactic evils in the broad parody of Japanese sentai shows like Kamen Rider and the Power Rangers. Harmontown follows NBC’s Community writer/producer Dan Harmon as he hits the road with his popular podcast, accompanied by his co-hosts, his girlfriend and a whole lot of baggage. For more info and tickets visit lafilmfest.com

JossysJossy’s

The Beyond
(Japan, 2014, 97 mins)
In Japanese with English subtitles
International Premiere
Directed By: Yuichi Fukuda
Screenwriter: Yuichi Fukuda
Cast: Mirei Kiritani, Mina Fujii, Mitsuki Takahata, Kasumi Arimura, Mizuki Yamamoto, Jiro Sato, Ken Yasuda, Sarutoki Minagawa

Five reluctant young women are recruited to become Earth’s last line of defense in this broad parody of Japanese Super Sentai shows like Kamen Rider and the countless iterations of the Power Rangers. Wearing the prerequisite color-coded uniforms, the team must fight off intergalactic villains like StinkBug and Mutant Mucus despite an utter lack of training. Even more problematic, however, is discovering that alien invasions are terribly inconvenient when they arise during a first date or trip to the salon, forcing our heroes to choose between their personal lives and saving the planet. (Spoiler: The planet doesn’t always win.)

Yuichi Fukuda, director of last year’s one-two punch of Kid Police and HK: Forbidden Super Hero, packs his latest with affectionate jabs at a beloved genre, awesomely lo-fi monster suits and plenty of superhero silliness.

 

Harmontown 2Harmontown
Summer Showcase
(USA, 2014, 101 mins, DCP)
Directed By: Neil Berkeley

Screenwriter: Neil Berkeley
Producer: David Heiman
Cinematographer: Ryan Carmody
Editor: James Andre Leche
Music: Ryan Elder
Featuring: Dan Harmon, Jeff B. Davis, Erin McGathy, Spencer Crittenden

On the surface, Harmontown is a road movie about the boozy live shows of the popular podcast of the same name. Capturing backstage shenanigans and philosophical musings along the way, the film follows a band of misfits that include TV writer/producer Dan Harmon, actor/comic Jeff B. Davis, Dungeon Master Spencer Crittenden and Harmon’s girlfriend, writer/comic Erin McGathy, as they tour the country.

Ultimately, however, it’s a portrait of the talented Harmon–a riveting blend of righteous arrogance and destructive self-loathing–whose seemingly flippant disregard for the TV industry is matched only by his desire to be deified within it. Director Neil Berkeley is as unrelenting as Harmon is willing to pursue candor at all costs as he battles with demons and deadlines. The resulting fireworks make it easy to understand the passionate and heartfelt following Harmon has amassed.
