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.

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.

Manga Pulse 401: God Pathos

By now we realized we’d passed our four hundred milestone and talk a little bit about what we’ve read and reviewed. There’s still consensus that some o the worst manga are the OELs which simply ape the style and mannerisms of manga.

Popcorn Pulse 105: Meaver

There’s nothing quite like watching an actor pretend to lose their mind on screen. Especially when they’re the kind of person who already comes across as unhinged. That’s why we jointly reviewed The Beaver[2011].

Manga Pulse 400: Many Hundreds

Shockingly, somehow, we’ve made if to four hundred episodes. Nearly eight hundred manga reviewed. Hundreds of emails read and dismissed. As it’s definitely a milestone you’d think we would have planned something special to celebrate it. If you’ve listened to us for any length of time then you know we barely remember to show up. So the episode number was a complete surprise to us.
