At the Osiris Club, Dr. Edward Carp asks Hellboy (of his right hand), “Does it do anything special?” Yes. It has three fingers, the middle one being “the bird” which director, Neil Marshall, and writer, Andrew Cosby, manage to give to the audience for the entire 2 hour runtime of this film.
Rating: 0 ⭐️. This movie sucks donkey balls. Not once did it identify the songs I played for it. There was a long list of songs at the end of the credits, but what the hell? That doesn’t help me. I want my money back. Worst. Movie. EVAR!
The title is a quadruple entendre: First, it refers to the toasted bread the British love to eat in the morning. Second, it refers to the idiom about a celebrated person. Third it is the name of the protagonist Steven Toast. And finally, it places the story in the same universe as Ren & Stimpy where there is a super hero Powdered Toast Man.
Aziraphale and Crowley wear white and black, respectively, which is a subtle nod to them being an angel and devil, respectively. This is also a subtle nod to Yin and Yang, from the Talmud, which fortells of Ragnarok, the anglicized version of Yom al Ayama, which—spoiler alert—is what the story is about.
Mar-Vell’s cat is a crossover from Lovecraft’s universe of Elder Gods. In fact, Goose is an anagram of Cthulhu, which is a subtle nod to my inability to spell and ignorance of what, exactly, an anagram is.
