Manga Pulse 405: Scarlet Monster

Today we have requests. The kind where people so much want to see us in pain they physically package up some manga and ship it across the wider states to our PO box. This means that we have no choice but to tackle this as soon as possible unlike the requests where we’re merely sent the title, though we still accept those as well.

Script 2 Script 22: The Witches

Roald Dahl is one of those authors that Hollywood like to try and adapt every few years. At least once the adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate factory faded into the childhood nostalgia of those working. Which might just be how we got The Witches.

Popcorn pulse 109: Dr Head

There’s nothing quite like public domain characters for making movies from. How about a wacky take on Dr Jekyll and Mister Hyde? What if the great great grandson of Dr Jekyll inherited his notes, attempted to fix it with estrogen and then turned into an evil woman? That’s the plot of Dr Jekyll and Ms Hyde(1995).

Manga Pulse 404: Not Found

This episode was going to be posted earlier but it had gone missing. Probably because it’s four oh four. Alright, restrooms are back and to your left. Please tip your wait staff. G’night!

Script 2 Script 21: Real Murders

If you were an author that wrote something that seemed inherently silly there are a lot of ways to deal with it. One way might be to rewrite it so that it’s not so silly. Another might be to just live with it and learn to accept it knowing that readers will take cues from your confidence. The worst and most common way is to simply hand a lampshade on it and smirk at the audience.

Popcorn pulse 108: Doom Rock

Video game movies are kind of like corn blight. They’re things that devastate whole crops of but only ever seem to effect monocultures. We’re not even sure if that thing lands or not. Our joint review is for Doom[2005]. It’s one of the early crop of game adaptations which continued to add evidence that no one in Hollywood has ever touched a controller.

Manga Pulse 403: Helpful Game

Hello? Yes, we’d like to order some cheese sticks, a large fry, two Cokes and a hamberder. Yes, a hamberder with no kepchup. I mean kepchup. Oh hell, I think someone goatse my autobot.

Script 2 Script 20: Who Famed Roger Rabbit

We’ve never run the numbers explicitly but there can’t be quite as many animated movies based on novels compared to any other genre. Which is why we thought it perfect to tackle Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Popcorn Pulse 107: Ice Scream

Deep in the heart of every video rental store of the nineties there were a few VHS tapes that were ubiquitous. These were the movies that were not ordered by the owners. They simply appeared on the shelves complete with worn stickers and suggested rental prices that were incorrect. One such film is Ice Cream Man(1995).

Manga Pulse 402: Street Captain

There’s something infinitely charming about the predictions of the future made in the distant past in science fiction. Particularly when they didn’t bother to cast that far ahead in the date of their fictional world. Take Blade Runner, for example, depicting Los Angeles as a dark, shadowy, dystopian world of flying cars and pyramids. When in reality that more accurately describes modern day Las Vegas.
