The best part about sports cars are they have more vroom. Your regular car? Not nearly as much vroom as a sports car. That’s why you want a sports car but you won’t be able to afford one until you’re older and by then people will just say you’re having a midlife crisis. You’ll still buy it though because you’ve been taught to want more vroom and can mentally justify it as deserved. Continue reading Manga Pulse 367: Darwin’s Baby

As only one of them as had to register their pelvis as a dangerous weapon, at least one half of the Popcorn duo knows a thing or two about weapons. Particularly the kind that does mortal damage. The might even be Lethal Weapon(1987). Yes, Time and Weltall are officially too old for this shit and resort to the classic and quintessential eighties buddy action cop flick.

It it time to bring the pair out of cryosleep and review manga. After a small injection of vitamins and calories, we will dispatch them to the recording bridge for a session of mumbled words and discussion. If we have timeWhich is kind of weird. Why would you need to pass a magic test to see if you can get into the only magic school around? It settles down to a Borders.

Weltall then dives into Darwin’s Game, a manga where members of the Neo-Catholic Church are being killed by the mysterious “Darwin”. Or some dude gets dragged into a death game via a cell phone invite. Everyone playing seems to have powers and don’t die permanently unless they’re out of points. It’s realistic enough in character reactions that it earns a Read It Now. to apply caffiene, they may even be coherent enough to review a couple of manga or whatever the term is based on the local.

Tim reviews Spirit Blade Mountain, a manhua where there’s a magic mountain where all the magic people go to train. Our main character is maybe twelve and maybe the chosen one. He gets into the school and immediately begins the trial to even be accepted.

What happens when you take the guy who played Angel in X-Men 3 and put him in a film that is a spiritual adaptation of Dead Space? Nothing until you add in another Popcorn Pulse Alumni Dennis Quaid. Jointly, we talk about Pandorum[2009].

A terribly advertised movie with trailers that seemed to try and invoke the memories of Event Horizon. It’s set on a spaceship where Ben Foster wakes up with amnesia. He quickly runs into Dennis Quaid who gives him the quest to bring the core back online before it blows up the ship. As Ben makes his way through the ship, fighting possible space madness and reavers, he begins to learn that things aren’t quite what they seem. We fully spoil the twist of the movie within the episode though. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 70: Police Panda

It’s rolypoly season finally and the boys are busy cracking open cold ones and getting rekt. Is that how you use such internet slang? We are sure how to do, fellow kids. We have all the dank memes, lol, rofl. By this point we have frightened away both the internet hooligans for misusing slang and the fogeies who are confused by terms they could look up on Urban Dictionary but don’t. Leaving only the hardiest and sexiest of out listeners. Continue reading Manga Pulse 365: Tachi Wachi Lan Wan

It’s about that time where we do a novel of Tim’s choice. He picked 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It’s the earliest book we’ve done thus far and a classic in science fiction. Plus any novel that opens up with a jab at Nebraska is alright in our book. Even better is knowing that some versions omitted it because the translators weren’t happy about it.

Our protagonist, Arronax, joins an expedition with a harpooner and his valet. They’re off to investigate reports of a narwhal that is striking and sinking ships. This journey is completely uneventful and Arronax spends most of his time swapping recipes with the crew while they sight see. Once they return to land, he publishes the first marine based cookbook and becomes wildly popular. Continue reading Script 2 Script 11: 20,000 Leagues

With the more recent explosion of superhero movies starting just after Iron Man proved that characters who weren’t sad about their dead parents could be a success, it’s easy to forget the genre is a bit older than that. In fact there was a period right after Burton reintroduces the caped crusader to the world at large that movies about super powers not based on the big two comic publishers began to crop up.

Let’s make a wild hipster prediction. Tiny house breweries covered in reclaimed aluminum siding and vintage asbestos paint. What could be more retro and kooky than risking death be mesothilioma? Yeah, you’ve probably never heard of it. Look away as I ride my kickboard away in a flash of ninteies flannel and beard oils. Continue reading Manga Pulse 364: Go Jo

Being the pop culture savants we are, we decided to do a movie featuring Bill Paxton. Frailty[2001] is the directorial debut of the, somewhat, recently deceased actor who gave all the best lines to himself. It starts by being a backstory being delivered by Matthew Mcconaughey. He claims he knows who a serial killer is and relates a backstory about watching his dad murder people. It’s supposed to leave us wondering if they actually are acting as abrahamic paladins and murdering evildoers or if they’re just insane. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 68: Frail Runner
