The Mayfair Theater in Ottowa last week showed Princess Mononoke on a double bill with...Heavy Metal? Huh? What genius paired those two together? Most likely the theater wanted to pair a Japanese animation film with an American one, and, hey, this one's got blood and violence in it! Good enough!
Seriously, Mononoke is an entirely different movie, a real movie. Heavy Metal was infamous in my teenage years only because it wasn't available anywhere. But it wasn't because it was some scandalous "banned" movie. It just sucked eggs.
