1990s Corn Pone Flicks parody subtitle in Blu-Ray HD

Post by davemerrill »

so back in 1995 or so our parody dub group Corn Pone Flicks made a parody subtitle of the Toei film "Grendizer Vs Great Mazinger". It turns out just writing funny subtitles is a lot easier than casting voice actors, recording dialogue, and doing the audio work to put it all together. Anyway I wrote most of it and I always thought it was pretty funny. So just recently fansub group Project Z Scans said, hey, we remastered Grendizer Vs Great Mazinger using the Japanese Blu-Ray, what do you think, Dave? Dave thinks it's pretty awesome.

Project Z then said, hey, we might remaster the 1998 Corn Pone Flicks parody subtitle of "Mazinger Z vs Devilman", what do you think, Dave? And I said, let me rewrite three or four of the jokes that haven't aged particularly well. So I went in and retooled some jokes, and wrote new jokes for the nine or so minutes of footage that we edited out of the film when we first made the parody subtitle, and that version should be out fairly soon. I had to write comedy lyrics for the "Devilman" theme song, and for the second verse of the end credits "Jet Scrander" song.

I'm pleased to see these films get HD upgrades, and I'm still pretty happy with how funny the parody subtitles are. If you wanna watch "Grendizer Vs Great Mazinger" for yourself, you can get it here: https://nyaa.si/view/1565693

so here's another thing, Project Z just completed the re-master of Corn Pone Flicks' Mazinger Z vs Devilman parody sub - this version looks amazing and includes all the footage that was edited out of the 1998 version (and has a few gags re-written because they aged, let's say, poorly) with new fake subtitles!

I wrote a set of parody lyrics for the Devilman theme song, and only the first stanza shows up in the Mazinger Z vs Devilman movie, but I wrote lyrics for both stanzas. If I get time I'm gonna fan-subtitle the Devilman OP with those parody lyrics.

There is some comedy gold in these two subs. I enjoyed them thoroughly. But did you timed this to coincide with the announcement of a new Grendizer film?

I don't know if Project Z knew about the Grendizer movie announcement (this was his project for the most part). I certainly didn't.

I'm hoping this new Grendizer thing will stir up whatever pot needs stirring to get Grendizer some kind of English language release!

BTW I did put the Devilman parody song lyrics on top of the Devilman OP and you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/QX0XiVK-2ks
