Popcorn Pulse 130: Treasure Master

It’s an animation spamination here on the world of Popcorn and Pulses.

We kick off with the financial bomb that’s rumored to have put the nail in coffin in the traditional animation at the house of mouse. That’s right, Treasure Planet[2002]. It’s something of a re-telling of Treasure Island but in space and it features a space boatload of talent. Basically there’s a place where the pirate king buried all his treasure and they’re off to find it. There’s also music scored by the lead of the Goo Goo Dolls in case future archeologists needed to date this without the use of carbon.

Popcorn Pulse 129: Wish for Death

Charles Bronson. The man made of old golf bags left in the sun of death valley in august made a lot of bad movies. Including a sequel that would spawn more. Starting with Death Wish 2(1982).

He plays the architect, once again, only living in California. Not Chicago as the previous movie hinted at. He has a girlfriend and his daughter is recovering from the attack in New York. Unfortunately for him, a roving gang he angers in the park find his house after snatching his wallet. They break in, brutalize the housekeeper, kidnap the daughter, do the same to her before she leaps to her death, and think nothing of it.

Popcorn Pulse 127: Rock-a-Doodle

Oh crap. Show. Ugh, how about a Don Bluth movie? No, not one you like or have probably seen. We did Rock-A-Doodle(1991). It’s about a rooster who believes he crows the sun up but the sun rises without him one morning which makes the other farm animals laugh at him. So he runs off to the city to become an Elvis impersonator. The protagonist gets sucked into his story book from the real world, gets turned into a kitten, and has to set out to bring cock of the walk back to try and stop the rain. Also there’s an evil owl.

Manga Pulse 422: Doctor Bitch

Twin manga powers activate. Form of, a shounen! Plot of, a shoujo!

Tim revisits Dr Stone now that he’s read well beyond the first few volumes. It’s still a mostly grounded story where they have to use their brains and luck out to find some incredibly rare pieces in a prehistoric tech world to revive humanity. It culminates to a point where they determine they have to go to the moon. It keeps a Read It Now though the plot is getting ahead of itself.
