artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

the awesomeness of Bruce Campbell knows no bounds

Item: Bruce Campbell is making a sequel to My Name Is Bruce, according to an email he sent to Ain’t It Cool News. It is to be called Bruce vs. Frankenstein. As Empire points out, this isn’t exactly Bubba Nosferatu, which we Bruceheads have been eagerly awaiting since Bubba Ho-Tep blew our little geek minds, but so what?

Item: Burn Notice is back! I do sorta have a sneaky kind of MacGyver-esque crush on Jeffrey Donovan as geek-tinkerer/blacklisted spy Michael Westen, but still: the show would be called Bruce Notice in any just universe. (Campbell is Michael’s wiseass sidekick, Sam, for those who sadly have not been inculcated in the cult of Burn Notice.)
This is funny because: I still haven’t seen My Name Is Bruce, which is unforgivable for me, who worships Bruce Campbell something fierce, and would be happy to have his babies. But I’m really gonna get to it soon, I swear to Bruce, and may he have mercy on my geek soul. His chin can kill me any time, and it would be no more and no less than I deserve.

    Fair warning: My Name is Bruce is not very good.

    Have you read “Make Love The Bruce Campbell Way”?

    It’s much better than the title would lead you to believe, and more about making movies than making love.

    My Name Is Bruce is pretty damned funny. It is worth watching as soon as you can.

    The women of Burn Notice rock, too. Yeah!

  • Graatch

    @david Of course it isn’t “good”…. Are you confused about the purpose of the exercise? ;-)

    Have you read “Make Love The Bruce Campbell Way”?

    It is my Bible.

    Yeah, Burn Notice is my favorite non-sitcom show still being made, but calling it “Bruce Notice” is getting a over the top. I will concede that I can’t think of any other actor who could do that role better than Campbell. And since by best g/fs have been martial artists, I do have a soft spot for women like Fiona. The only thing is, I do sometimes wonder how much of the hero’s explanations are researched vs. made up by the writers.

    Fair warning: My Name is Bruce is not very good.

    Blockquoted in bold and italics for just a liiiiittle more emphasis.

    Burn Notice, on the other hand, needs to be on TV much, much more. :)

    I LOVE My Name is Bruce. It’s a helluva lot better than The Man with the Screaming Brain. By miles. It’s not fantastic, but it is fantastically a B movie and it’s fun to see Bruce make fun of himself.
