We’ve got too many manga and the dump won’t take it. We’ve tried donating it and got cited for toxic waste. I supposed that there’s only one thing to do. Time to crack open a couple of them and start reviewing them. Then we can use them as kindling.Continue reading Manga Pulse 443: Spy Little
Being fans of MST3K and Rifftrax, we’ve naturally seen The Room. So when Greg Sestero wrote a book about the making of the movie and his friendship to the Latvian revenant known as Tommy Wiseau we listened to the audio book on a drive across the country. Which meant we had no choice but to watch the movie made and based off the book as well.
This episode is a bit different in that we’re not just discussing the differences between a book and an adaptation so much as the differences between the reality presented in the book and that shown in the movie, the Disaster Artist.
Updated to fix previous mistakes.
Let’s dig into the best year to ever have occurred in the history of our lives. At least that’s what we’re going to call it based solely on the films that came out that year. We’re not going for anything most people have heard of though, we’ve got The Miracle Fighters(1982).Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 147: Double Miracle
Two more for the wall. We’ve got two more slabs of paper pulp with words done printed on them for a trophy. Sometimes it feels like we’re never going to recapture that golden hunt, boyo. We’ll get there one day or die trying.Continue reading Manga PUlse 442: Dragon’s Domain
There are some actors who are like the white rice of film. Then there are tried and true spices like garlic and you can never have too much garlic. The same could be said of one Nicolas Cage and we’ve got a dollar store can full in Willy’s Wonderland.Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 146: Willy’s Wonderland
How many manga can we cram into a single show? Could we do seven, fourteen, a hundred and eighty? Considering how long and rambly we get, it’s doubtful. We’re honestly lucky we get through the two we normally slate for these things. Speaking of two, that’s exactly what we brought in.Continue reading Manga Pulse 441: Regenerated Manga
Has it been awhile since we did a Travolta movie? Probably. No one cares for us to go back and look. We grabbed The Forger off the rack to see what travesty was produced.
Travolta plays an Art Forger who’s son is dying of cancer. He calls in a favor from a mob boss to get out of jail early. This involves forging a Monet to steal and give to the mob. Travolta almost fits being a washed up wannabe artist who makes copies. Plus they don’t pull any punches and have the kid miraculously beat cancer at the end.Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 145: The Last Forger
Prepare for trouble. And you might as well make it a double. It’s been a long week since our last and that means it’s time to drink. If we have time we might fit in a little manga review or two as well.Continue reading Manga PUlse 440: Heal Mushi
What to do for movies. Shit, we know we watched something we could do. Fuck it, Nicholas Cage it is. Time to break out Vampire’s Kiss(1988). One of Cage’s first roles where he brings a woman home back to his place and starts making out with her. Things are going well enough to start undressing. At least until a bat comes in.Continue reading Popcorn Pulse 144: Vampy Kisses
Back to back is not just the optimal fighting technique when you have two Jean Claude van Damme. It’s also the way our reviews come along. This time more pulp of the paper directly from the land of the Subaru.Continue reading Manga Pulse 439: Gun Devil
