Script 2 Script 10: It’s better than Euro-Disney

If it’s two things we love, it’s popular trends and the author of Twilight. Which is why this month’s choice was the Jane Austen obsessed book and Stephenie Meyer produced movie, Austenland.

The story follows a woman that can’t let go of how great Colin Firth looks dripping wet and manages to get into the exclusive vacation spot of Austenland where she is totes the prettiest girl there. Whether it’s the coy glances at tight breeches or the rousing games of whist, it’s a non-stop roller coaster of Regency era romance that doesn’t slow down. Where you’re constantly asking yourself, who will Felicity choose? Mr. Flight of the Conchords or Mr. Totally-Acts-As-If-He-Hates-Her-So-There-Is-No-Way-It-Could-Turn-To-Love?

So adjust your petticoat, make sure your wanton ankles are covered, and enjoy us talking about the best side character ever. We’re positive you’ll find her absolutely…charming. *winky face, mid air high-five*

Manga Pulse 350: Princess Vs Princess

We have at least one idea which could make a profit in the near future. Shrapnel helmets to sell overseas. They’ll be made in America and sold to countries where there is a risk of bombs being dropped from Trump Force One because the president can’t tell the difference between China and Mexico as they all speak foreign.

New look

You might have noticed the site looks a little different. It will continue to change slightly as we update things and add graphics. We decided to launch the new look incomplete so that we could get feedback as it’s being put together. Let us know what you think.

Popcorn Pulse 54: Devil Kick

Too often we’re busy discussing the newest films like all the other pedestrian podcasts. Given our always topical choice in films, we decided to reach into the bag of recommendations and find something that has aged. We pulled out a copy of Sidekicks(1992) to see if it aged like wine or like tuna salad. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 54: Devil Kick

Manga Pulse 349: Foreign Words

This week we managed a whole show where we didn’t talk about politics once. Yes, not even in passing. Instead we talked about movies quite a bit as we are wont to do even when the theme is manga. Because that’s just kind of what we do around here. Continue reading Manga Pulse 349: Foreign Words

Sailor Business Guest Spot

What’s this business? Is something no one in their right mind would ever say unless they’d recently suffered a head injury after entering a Big Lots(the business is keeping people from noticing they’re in a Big Lots). This wouldn’t be something you would ask of Sailor Business. Not to be confused with Business Sailor, a meme that failed to gain traction after the popularity of Business Hotdog and Cheez Face McGee.

Our very own Vanessa did a guest spot over at Sailor Business. They are a podcast dedicated to episode by episode discussion of the original run of Sailor Moon. In preparation of this, Vanessa watched a couple episodes with Tim. He was somewhat confused and had a few comments which Vanessa mentioned on the show.

You should go there(http://www.wax-work.com/sailor/) and give them a listen. Especially if you’re a fan of Sailor Moon.

Popcorn Pulse 53: Hard Clint

Today we jointly discuss a Clint Eastwood movie, The Beguiled(1971). While he has a large filmography, we wanted to avoid a number of the more well known films by Mister McSquinty. Plus the opening scene was so awful that when Wetall saw it, telling him we had to do this. Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 53: Hard Clint

Manga Pulse 348: Get Old

Are you fans of digression and roundabout discussions? Because we are in full form this episode. Weltall sounds like a geriatric reporter padding their social security with opinon pieces on CNN by saying “millenials”. Tim keeps trying to steer it back to the show’s center to no avail. Continue reading Manga Pulse 348: Get Old

Popcorn Pulse 52: Fish Boat

If there’s one thing Hollywood, and filmmakers in general, are good at, it’s realizing that there’s a calendar in their office. We’re pretty certain that’s the reason why there was an abundance of films centered around the new millennium released, of course, right around the turn of the millennium.

So it’s quite a surprise that there is a movie called Millennium(1989) which has nothing to do with the year two thousand nor about the much feared Y2K “bug”. It has to do with time travel where people from a thousand years in the future show up to kidnap people before they can die in a plane crash while leaving doppelgangers behind. Also, there are “time-quakes”. No, really.

Weltall then talks about Swordfish[2001]. A movie we may have already talked about but couldn’t find any proof of the fact. It features Hugh Jackman pretending to be a hacker which is almost as unbelievable as Halle Berry as a golfer. Did we mention Halle golfs in this? We imagine that the clip of her swing will be what Jack Nicklaus will have to watch on endless loop in the afterlife. It will be as penance for all those crappy cartridge games that slapped his name on them.

Tim then talks about the remake, Poseidon[2006]. Not only is it rather unnecessary it’s got enough CGI that it serves as a tourist brochure for the Matrix. The main characters come together for apparently no reason to go to the engine room after the ship is overturned. People die off in order of billing and randomly end up imperiled while not knowing how the got there.

Manga Pulse 347: Shit Can

We often approach these shows terrified that we’ll have nothing to talk about. Especially when the manga we’re discussing seems incredibly straightforward. Without a jam packed mythos, power levels and ranks to make fun of, a manga can appear rather anemic. Lucky for us, there’s always digression and it’s in full force within this episode.
