The nineties had a window in ninety four where villains had to one man armies with overly clever gadgets. One such entry is Blown Away(1994). Tommy Lee Jones plays a leather coin purse who was an IRA member in jail. He’s a master bomb maker who escapes prison and heads to Boston for revenge.Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 117: Blown
A pair of requests have made it to our inbox this week for manga.Continue reading Manga Pulse 412: Erasing MacBeth
What if Al Gore won the two thousand election? We’d have a multidimensional police force that operates like another sci fi movie with a martial artist. Jet Li plays himself, on trial for attempting to kill all the other known versions of himself. As they attempt to exile him to the phantom zone, something goes wrong and he invades the world with the last other Jet LiContinue reading Popcorn Pulse 116: The One
Manga brought to you hot and fresh with a side of hash browns. While you can buy our original recipe that made us famous, don’t forget to try our extra crispy podcast which truly launched us.Continue reading Manga Pulse 411: Youkai Sins
It’s easy to forget that Tom Hardy was in Venom(2018). This could be because Tom Hardy has played a lot of roles where a mask covers parts of his face making him hard to remember. Or it could be that nobody remembers this movie. It’s what you get when someone tells you that you have to make a Spiderman movie minus Spiderman.Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 115: Venom Cries
Can manga be anime or is anime manga? Is corn grass? Take some egg crates and stable some wild flowers to it. Now you’ve turned your garbage into something no one wants and wasted precious ?resources. All to keep yourself or maybe a child busy for a few seconds. Why not just light money on fire and watch it burn?Continue reading Manga pulse 410: Demi Devil
A request has come in as they are wont to do. Requests are rarely ignored, we just don’t get around to them due to the rigorous demands on our daily lives. That or we’re incredibly lazy. Take Hanlon’s razor, paraphrase it, then give it a new name. We’re not because we’re lazy.Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 114: Fallen Angel
The local con season has come and gone and that means it’s time for more manga selected from a grab bag for Tim. This time the manga roulette has brought Tim to The Saga of Tanya the Evil. It’s an isekai where the protagonist is a salary man on earth who enjoys firing people. One of his firees takes this badly and shoves him in front of a subway train. In the afterlife, he meets various gods who want people to believe in them so they send him into a world of magic to be reborn as a girl soldier. The characters is lazy and obnoxious and fun to watch. It gets a Crackers.
Weltall then does Perfect School. Two twins, a boy and girl, are just switching schools. We don’t know why this has happened but we start to get hints. She begins by identifying a girl in class who appears to be ripe for psychological manipulation. She convinces the other girl to change her hair and this begins the protagonist weaving wicked strings throughout the school. It’s not very engaging or up our alley though the premise pushes it up to Borders.
The requests keep coming and they don’t stop coming. We’ve got another two sent in via the po box. Films from Rooster Teeth reviewed in the order of release tackled by both of us. This will be a bit different as we’re not inherent fans of the group aware of outside of a few things like RWBY or Red Vs Blue.Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 113: Cockless Studio
We’re back with more requests and we’ve been given some more video game adaptations in a series we’ve already done a number of. Tim has Zelda – The Minish Cap and Phantom Hourglass. Having actually played the Minish Cap, Time has a bit of insight into the game story. It’s faithful and does well by skipping over the tedium that wouldn’t translate into a manga. The same volume covers the events of the Phantom Hourglass. It’s fun and lighthearted enough to enjoy with or without having played either game earning it a CrackersContinue reading Manga Pulse 408: Zelda Again…
