There is a special breed of nerd that doesn’t pop up in the usual places. Their crack is not teasers of the latest Marvel movie or screenshots of the potential bomb being built by DC. Theirs are spec sheets and exploded views in maintenance manuals and fiddly arguments on lone message boards with other engineer minded folks.
Apparently one of them was hybridized with an anime fan and grew up to be a mangaka. That’s the only explanation for how we got Upotte!!.

Unless we’re talking about the movie Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel. Fans of the IT Crowd will be pleased to know we finally tackled this movie. It was at least one first in the history of Popcorn Pulse in that Tim suggested it and Weltall didn’t hate him for it after. It is proof that Anna Farris can be in a movie that’s not packed to the rafters with fart jokes in place of dialogue. Read more>>
