Popcorn Pulse 115: Venom Cries

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.

Popcorn Pulse 114: Fallen Angel

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.

Popcorn Pulse 113: Cockless Studio

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.

Popcorn Pulse 112: RIP Rip Torn

As each year passes we lose a few more established actors. Once in awhile this news bubbles up to us and we make a show in remembrance of them. Plus maybe it can drive a few clicks our way if someone stumbles upon us looking for the actors we’re talking about. This time we look back at Rip Torn who’s best known for being the rough, curmudgeonly, old guy who back and mumbles profanity at the protagonist. Even when it’s rated G, there’s the implicit swearing.

Popcorn Pulse 111: Cold Pursuit

It may not be a special number but we happen to like the triple digits. So we just had to pick a theme of some sorts. We couldn’t come up with anything particularly uniting so we decided to hone in on movies set in our home state.

Popcorn Pulse 110: This Is Spinalta

This week we kick the show off with the grand pappy of mockumentaries. The one that started them all and inspired up to dozens of copy cats. Tim and Weltall jointly review This Is Spinal Tap(1984). A documentary style comedy filmed around a fictional English rock band in the vein of Sabbath who’s going on an American tour as their popularity begins to wane.

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).

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.

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).

Popcorn Pulse 106: The Mav

What happens when a crazed Australian teams up with the director of Superman(1978)? You get a wacky cowboy adventure flick that’ a remake of the a TV show from the fifties. We are talking about Maverick(1994).
