Rip Jagger’s Dojo: Godzilla’s Robot Buddy!

   The 1993 flick Godzilla Vs. Mechagodzilla II, was pure Kaiju madness. I usually stick to the older G-Stuff but Mechagodzilla is one of my favorites. The redesign of MG from the 70’s version is dynamic. Check out the main article about this match-up on Rip’s blog.

Mark Hamill’s Pop Culture Quest: Raiders of the Lost Props

   Some great stories from a prop collector in this episode. I know a lot about Star Wars, canon, legends, games, making of, but there is a wealth of knowledge in this episode for some some facets of the original films that I know very little about. Props and filming locations, along with the stories behind them are a whole nother level of cool.

Star Wars: The OT Retrospectives

   These retrospectives, by Oliver Harper, are very informative and a “Must Watch” for any fan of the original trilogy. He delves into pre production, filming, merchandising, games, music, and much more. It’s an extremely entertaining watch, or even re-watch. Oliver is a talented editor, plus he is easy to listen to. If you haven’t heard of these before, you’re welcome. If you have, give them a another view… this is my 3rd or 4th time on each.

The Last Unicorn (1982)

   Today we are enjoying a Rankin|Bass production, The Last Unicorn. This is a movie that I have seen on a few occasions, but apparently I’ve never really paid attention to it. The classic cell animation style is a joy to behold, much of the music is provided by America, and the voice talent is perfect. At times there are a few cringe worthy moments, yet on the whole it’s a wonderful film. You can view it for yourself on Netflix.

Why Indiana Jones 4 was Actually Awesome

   Do you think Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sucked? Then this may just change your mind like it did mine.

Wonder Woman (2017)

So, apparently, all I do now is repost posters. So be it 😊 This one is an awesome piece. Can’t wait for Diana of Themyscira to make her solo debut next year.

Star Wars: Rogue One Reshoots

   Relax. Reshoots are just a part of big budget business as usual. Everybody is loosing their minds over nothing. How many more Nerd shaking events need to happen before we all just sit back and not over react to every little nothing that happens in geekdom?

   More and more, the internet is putting the FANATIC back into Fandom. Let’s all mellow out and enjoy what ever we get, or make something better.

My Top Nine Films Based on Comic Strips

Honorable Mention: Buck Rogers. The movie was a pilot for the TV series.  

   “My Top Nine”… it seems to be a thing now. Well, it’s only my second top nine list, but is could be a thing. Why not a Top Ten? In both cases I really couldn’t come up with ten picks, for the life of me.

   This one is simple. Comic strips to the big screen. These are some of the best, live action, examples of this genre of film. When I say “best” I mean, of course, my best.

Theory: Thor Ragnarok Planet

    We all remember this…Agent-Simmons-in-Kree-Monolith-Agents-of-SHIELD   Just going to plop this down for everybody to think about, but I think we have already seen the “new” planet where Thor and Hulk are going.

   The Kree Monolith was a gateway to a planet. Which planet? Hmmm… Perhaps Kree? More than likely. We’ve had a few Kree connections in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”. Ragnarok is, traditionally, a tale of the end of the world, in which (Thousand plus year old Spoiler)  Thor dies.

   I am pretty positive that this won’t be a “Planet Hulk”, but it should be a buddy flick, full of fun, laughs and incredible battles. Oh, also, I don’t think that they will actually kill off the Son of Odin but there will probably be a huge change in his world.
