Awesomest Cast

Aug. 26, 2008by: Daniel Barna

Spoofs were cool so so long ago I can barely remember when. I think it was back when my mom used to be hot or my brother didn't have crippling acne. Spoofs were cool when the NAKED GUN series was running shit and the HOT SHOT series was a close second. But now with the Scary, Date and Disaster movies running amuck, spoofs have made a resurgence, no matter how lame they may be. So it is with a pensive, deep grimace that I announce the creation of THE LEGEND OF AWESOMEST MAXIMUS. a spoof of sword-and-sandal flicks such as GLADIATOR, 300 and TROY presented by the the once-great folks over at National Lamppon.

The film's cast is led by Mad TV's Will Sasso who will be joined by Ian Ziering, Kristanna Loken, and Sophie Monk among others. Although I am by no means excited for this fim, I'm still pretty impressed that director Jeff Kanew was able to land such an A-List crowd for a relatively low profile film. Way to go Jeff. Keep on truckin'.
Extra Tidbit: It's about time Will Sasso becomes a movie star.

While I don't have high hopes for this, I will say both that Will Sasso is certainly an under appreciated talent, and a spoof of sword-and-sandal epics (Meet the Spartans doesn't count) has been well overdue.

National Lampoon should be avoided at all costs. There isn't a talented person left in the enitre production and creative team.

Will Sasso is in this

and so I must watch it. Will Sasso is a very underappreciated comedian/actor. He was the best thing in Southland Tales.

Oh, never mind. Someone else likely either has already, or will, say it much better than me.

on the bright-side...

I hate these abominations that for some reason we still call movies as much as the next guy.

But at least this one actually seems to be spoofing movies in the same genre. Not like Disaster Movie and the others which seem to spoof whatever came out in the previous 6-8 months.

That's what I liked about Superhero Movie. It was still terrible, but next to Meet the Spartans and Epic movie it was an Oscar caliber film. Maybe this new one will help slowly return Spoofs to greatness?

Man they need to stop making these spoof movies.
They are horrible and awful and they usually always make money that's why I hate them. No good writing or ideas always using stupid pop culture jokes . Sooner or later like the movie "Idiocracy" says the number one movie is gonna be called "ASS". 2 hours of straight "ASS!!!"

I'm hip to this article's sarcasm

I don't know if your typos were intentional Mr. Barna, but "Way to Jeff. Kepp on truckin'." had me lol-ing.

Spoof Bashing....

has gotten really boring. I understand that there are a lot of people out there that don't like spoof movies anymore...but get over it already. I'm sure everybody has certain movies they enjoy that other people don't, so, get off your high horse and let it rest. Hell, I don't like Bond movies, but do you see me whining about them, no, I just don't go see them. If there are movies being made that you don't enjoy...here's a bright idea for you...go see something else.

I HATE new spoofs!

The old spoof films are so good because they are timeless. They dont rely on pop culture references to be good... Sure you have the odd one, but they weren't even remotely reliant on them.

Also... Good cast? Will Sasso is likely the only good thing about this, and he is honestly a better dramatic actor...

I fell in love with Kristanna Loken when I was 8, when MORTAL KOMBAT: CONQUEST was on TV.
