Re: Maleficent

-You know the craziest thing about Maleficent? She has like TEN MINUTES OF SCREEN TIME for the entirety of Sleeping Beauty ! Think- she is EASILY the most memorable part of the film, and among the most infamous of Disney's villains, she she takes up about 1/9th of the duration of her only film appe...

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

He was also notable as being a pulp hero who refused to kill, which along with the Phantom, the Shadow, the Spider and the Green Hornet, made Doc a very early proto-superhero. ^_^ Although his policy of giving criminals a "harmless lobotomy" instead hasn't aged well. I was not aware of this....oh m...

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

I would love the link, I had no idea about the Yarzan,Doc savage Kong cross overs. The setting and tone just screams adventure for me, I just need a better understanding of the source material. I have a special place in my heart for heroes with strong aversion to killing. Here's the links: King Kon...

Re: Favorite Bad Movie and why

Try this thought then,you pack of derailers you :P... Johnny Domino is the illegitimate child of the Shadow. We're sorry for derailing your thread like....like.....well a San Francisco cable car, but it was for good reason. I could get behind that one too. Well you're in luck, there's an actual Pul...

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

There are actually a pair of books by the same author that have King Kong encounter Doc Savage in one and then Tarzan in another. The same writer also did a pair of Doc Savage / The Shadow crossovers. I can link you to them if you like. Skull Island is a great place for adventure, and if you're look...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Zarina! Fawn! Sleeping Beauty! Aurora! Phillip!)

Found a clip of the entire last confrontation between Philip and Maleficent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmM-XX8atlQ Philip seriously looked like I was about to drop his fudge when Maleficent goes full Black Dragon on him . . . but then he just straight up charges her, like catsi mentioned.

Also, I mean, not to be shallow, Aurora is gorgeous as Jab pointed out, but man she's stacked too.

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

The first three John Carter of Mars books are a lot of fun, and it's really criminal how poorly the movie did. I mean, visually the movie was great, but they turned John into this morose, money grubbing, family tragedy having sack of crap that completely undermined the chivalrous adventurer he is in...

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

I'll admit, some of my favorite post-Lovecraft Cthulhu stuff is the Chaosium RPG "Escape from Innsmouth" and the video game "Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth", which is basically a video game adaptation of that tabletop RPG adventure. They're both very cool, IMO. And yes, one of the big bits of ho...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Periwinkle! Zarina! Fawn! Sleeping Beauty!)

Maleficent is definitely how I would play a "wicked fae" type character for a Changeling: The Lost or Dresden Files RPG. The lady basically doesn't get invited to a baby's birthday party, and is so offended that she's going to curse the child with eternal sleep. Not the parents who didn't invite her...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Vidia! Rosetta! Periwinkle! Zarina! Fawn!)

Maleficent is probably my overall favorite Disney villains. Hades is entertaining. Jafari is delightfully evil. Syndrome is classic supervillain. The Evil Queen has menace. Hook and Prince John are amusing coward. Gaston is a fun jab at the classic Disney hero. But Maleficent? The lady is just this ...

Re: Captain Marvel trailer(original Captain Marvel)

Minor side note, but I was watching one of the straight to video LEGO DC Superhero films where Bizarro steals the Bizarro ray to make a bunch of imperfect Bizarro Justice Leaguers. And I decided then and there if I ever wrote a Capt. Marvel book for DC, it would include Bizarro making a Bizarro Capt...

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

On a different note, I always thought the mythology behind Howard's Conan stories and Lovecrafts Mythos was very compatible. The way they described the demons and gods from ancient pre-history was very similar as was their general themes of the horrific unknown. As you might or might not know, that...

Re: Pulse Pounding Adventures - Pulp and Film Serial Discussion

Ares, I noticed that you left out the work of one Lee Falk, creator of two classics of the genre: Mandrake and the Phantom. My only experience with Mandrake and the Phantom have been The Defenders of the Earth animated series, and to a more limited extent Phantom 2040 . I do have the film serials f...
