    Boo! It’s a Spooktacular episode of ghosts and goulies… well actually it’s a top 10 kind of night but there are only 8…

    Tonight we talk about Universal Pictures and their classic moster movies of the early “talkie” era.
    Mr. Chulak’s ranking
    8. Phantom of the Opera (1943 remake with Claude Raines)
    7. Creature form the Black Lagoon
    6. The Mummy (Boris Karloff)
    5. The Invisible Man (Claude Raines)
    4. The Wolfman (Lon Chaney)
    3. Frankenstein (Boris Karloff)
    2. Bride of Frankenstein (Boris Karloff)
    1. Dracula (Bella Lugosi)

    KJ’s ranking
    8. Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923 Lon Chaney)
    7. Creature from the Black Lagoon
    6. The Invisible Man (Claude Raines)
    5. Bride of Frankenstein (Boris Karloff)
    4. The Wolfman (Lon Chaney)
    3. The Mummy (Boris Karloff)
    2. Frankenstein (Boris Karloff)
    1. Dracula (Bella Lugosi)
    Dracula was one of the first Universal Horror pictures KJ saw, and it is related to how it was shot, the stage performances of Lugosi and the atmosphere created with just a fog machine and lighting. The other key factor is all of the remakes of the Dracula films, Frank Langella, Christopher Lee, even Brad P**t and Tom Cruise… Vampires are king!
    And since we both agreed on our number 1, what are our numbers? Chulak is a 7.5 and KJ is an 8.1
    We ended the show with news about the rebooted universal Monsters “Dark Universe” and the apparent death of the franchise because of the recent Tom Cruise Mummy reboot attempt.
    If anyone wants an Invisible Man action figure, please contact KJ the Comic Guy at Warpmytardis@gmail.com... Only $49.95 for the original Universal Pictures box in pristine condition.

    Warp My Tardis Podcast: Season 4 - Episode 14: Star Wars and D23... Get ready D+

    Warp My Tardis Podcast: Season 4 - Episode 14: Star Wars and D23... Get ready D+

    Welcome to Warp My Tardis Podcast on the Geek Culturecast network. This episode: KJ, and Chulak talk Disney D23 Conference and the Star Wars announcements.

    Are you looking for new ideas and adventures for your RPG Group? How about a monthly magazine filled with plot twists, one shots and side quests? Look no further, DM Dave brings you Broadsword magazine. Broadsword is a monthly digital and printed magazine that provides DMs with ideas, tidbits and even complete side quests that can be fit into almost any campaign. Check out Broadswords magazine at http://dmdave.com/broadsword-magazine-preorder-1/

    KJ and Chulak are back after a quick missed episode/break and there is a ton of news to share about the D23 Conference, especially about Star Wars as two series were announced: The Mandalorian and Kenobi

    The Mandalorian is about Bounty Hunters, and takes place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. In the teaser, we see IG-88 and Lando Calrissian among other known figures like storm troopers and rebel fighters. Not a lot is given away in the trailer other than lots of fighting, shooting up Imperials and possibly meeting up with new crime lords.
    There is a lot of circumstantial footage here. Who is the one under the armor, and why do they want to look like Bobba Fett?

    The Kenobi series is a greater concern. Taking place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, this series goes through the hidden life of a Jedi on the run. The show looks good, and with Ewan McGregor back in the Obi-Wan role it has the opportunity to be something good. We just hope that they don’t take the story down a path that can’t be recovered from in the world of Star Wars Canon

    We didn’t go deeply into the extended teaser trailer for Episode IX, but there is a ton of speculations there too related to the last scene with Rey and her double red sabres. Is this a force dream? A dark path like Luke travelled facing his own Dark Side? Or is this truly Rey’s turn toward a path that she cannot come back from? We will have to wait until December 20 to find out.

    WarpMyTardis Podcast: Season 4, Episode 13 - SciFi PotLuck

    Welcome to Warp My Tardis Podcast on the Geek Culturecast network. This episode: KJ, and Chulak talk Pot-Luck on all the Sci-Fi they are watching/Reading and talking about.
    Are you looking for new ideas and adventures for your RPG Group? How about a monthly magazine filled with plot twists, one shots and side quests?

    The show started off with some teasing about Mr Chulak and his time on a boat last week, followed by conversations about SpaceX and everything we can’t possibly miss on YouTube, especially they returns on their solid boosters. KJ raised the upcoming preparations for the next Mars Lander. JPL has had a ton of streaming coverage. Watch live as it is happening and that is a great thing as part of our modern world.
    Chulak introduced a documentary created by one man and his telescope, about how he went out and recorded the reactions of average people rediscovering the moon by telescope. A New Way to look at the moon is 3 minutes and change and is available on YouTube (Link at the end of the show notes) and has already begun to receive awards in the short film and documentary categories.
    This week in Dublin Ireland is WorldCon, the World Science Fiction Convention. The increasing world of robotics, integrated AI’s and the possibility of robots with empathy being your perfect partner… in every way. This lead into a conversation about the differences between the World’s Fair and todays massive glut of conventions. There are so many conventions that it isn’t a unique experience anymore.
    On another topic, Mattel and their Barbie brand are now embracing the world of Cosplay through a new series of dolls. This first set are iconic Star Wars characters reimagined in the world of cosplay, like R2-D2 dress, and a very interesting take on Darth Vader. These are definitely not your little sister’s Barbies!
    Onto video and series being watched, KJ and Chulak also waxed on about Netflix and how they now spend much more time on Amazon Prime and other streaming services rather than on Netflix.
    The big mentions to watch are:
    •Amazon Prime : Good Omens – Neil Gaimon and Terry Pratchett’s book on good and evil
    •Amazon Prime: Quiet Earth – When an experiment goes wrong, a scientist is the last man on earth and we journey with him as his mind breaks down
    •Amazon Prime: Eureka – Sheriff takes a job in a bubble world where everyone deals with the secret world of Science Fiction
    •Netflix: Another Life – Katie Sackoff leads a CW all-star team in a deep space mission
    Also on the show we talked about several KickStarter Projects. If you act soon you may still be able to be a part of these exciting projects:
    Chosen – A Sword and Fantasy tribute from the creative mind of Chris Campana. The story follows a young elf named Brynn, who is forced to leave her family and homeland behind, and set off on a quest, so that she may somehow, save those she loves from an evil on the verge of destroying the entire realm. It’s a story of fate… gone wrong?
    Cozmo's Thirsty Tentacle Bar and Grill is the galaxy's not-so-local watering hole - unless, of course, you live on an asteroid, then it would be a hop and a skip away. Stop by and have a drink with the myriad lifeforms, who have come to party or to wallow in their Rygelian ale. They may become your best buddies, or you may suddenly find your wallet missing. It's hard to say what will happen when you set through the hissing door at Cozmo's, but one thing's for certain. You'll never be bored.

    WarpMyTardis - Season 4, Episode 12 - SciFi From SDCC 2019... and Kickstarters

    Welcome to Warp My Tardis Podcast on the Geek Culturecast network. This episode: KJ, and Chulak talk about all things Sci-Fi from SDCC 2019.
    Are you looking for new ideas and adventures for your RPG Group? How about a monthly magazine filled with plot twists, one shots and side quests?

    On Legends of the Panel last week (Season 5, episode 14) we talked about the Comic Book announcements from San Diego ComicCon 2019. This week we address the SciFi announcements.
    Let’s start with Fox and the announcement that The Orville, the Seth Macfarlane Sci-Fi show paying homage to classic Star Trek: The Next Generation, will be moving from Fox Television to Hulu for season 3. Macfarlane made the announcement that due to other commitments, that to provide the show with the integrity that he wants, that Hulu makes more sense as a delivery method. No mention was made for international audiences on how the move to Hulu will affect them. KJ hopes that CRAVE TV will continue to host HULU content in Canada.
    CBS All Access hosted several events including two specific Star Trek announcements. One being the launch of Season 3 for STD… I mean Star Trek; Discovery. Now having followed the Red Angel 700 years into the future, we really don’t know what we are going to get with STD. New characters are coming onto the cast, but we are really left with the unknown a as the antique Discovery needs to find its place in what may be a dystopian future… or maybe not. What we do know is that they are indeed in the PICARD timeline.
    Speaking of Picard, the full trailer for the new Star Trek: Picard series looked fantastic. A combination of shows like Dark matter, Deep Six and FarScape as well as the traditional Star trek universe, and we now know at least 4 characters we love from the original TNG. Ryker and Troi are still matrimonius (is that a real word?) as well we now know that Commander Data and Seven of Nine have made their way to the new future. We can’t wait until late 2020 for this one.
    Also on the show we talked about several KickStarter Projects. If you act soon you may still be able to be a part of these exciting projects:
    Chosen – A Sword and Fantasy tribute from the creative mind of Chris Campana. The story follows a young elf named Brynn, who is forced to leave her family and homeland behind, and set off on a quest, so that she may somehow, save those she loves from an evil on the verge of destroying the entire realm. It’s a story of fate… gone wrong?
    EVERGLADE ANGELS - a graphic novel from Scott Lobdell writer of Marvel's X-MEN, and the writer & creator of HAPPY DEATH DAY, co-created by Blake Northcott international bestselling author of ARENA MODE and THE NORTH VALLEY GRIMOIRE with artwork by Roc Upchurch, the co-creator and artist of RAT QUEENS (the Eisner and Hugo nominated Image Comic series that won a GLAAD Media Award in 2015).
    Trial by Trolley – a Game from the creators of Cyanide and Happiness web comic, where two teams create moral dilemmas, sabotage each other and then, make a decision on who gets run over by Trolley Tom. It’s a card game of Moral epic proportions.

    WarpMyTardis Season 4: Episode 11 - Stranger Things

    WarpMyTardis Season 4: Episode 11 - Stranger Things

    Welcome to WarpMyTradis Podcast on the Geek Culturecast network. This episode: KJ and Chulak talk about Stranger Things and all things 80’s.
    Are you looking for new ideas and adventures for your RPG Group? How about a monthly magazine filled with plot twists, one shots and side quests? Look no further, DM Dave brings you Broadsword magazine. Broadsword is a monthly digital and printed magazine that provides DMs with ideas, tidbits and even complete sidequests that can be fit into almost any campaign. Check out Broadswords magazine at http://dmdave.com/broadsword-magazine-preorder-1/
    Right off the start, KJ is a child of the 70’s. So for alignment sake, the age of the kids in Stranger Things give or take a year aligns with KJ when he was growing up. That said KJ is far too analytical! Stranger Things is a beloved franchise adored by Gen Y and Millennials everywhere. The story is a combination (very lightly described) as X-Files meets the Goonies.
    Cinematically this program can go up against some great David Lynch programs including Twin Peaks or X-Files. If it gritty, and very well produced. The lighting and locations lend a lot to the drama of the series. The casting is perfect with Winona Ryder, David Harbour and Matt Modine as veteran performers. Bring this together with a likeable cast of young stars and it is a formula for success.
    Now if only we could get KJ past his own preconceived issues with the 80’s.
    Where most series on TV today move too quickly and don’t do a fantastic job of developing character relationships that are believable or that define the cast into archetypes, Stranger Things takes a more laid back approach, which throws KJ for a loop. The slow pacing with lots of time to build the characters is such a departure from 90% of the industry, that this completely threw KJ off.
    On our own rating scale, Chulak gives the first season of Stranger Things an 8.5 with season 2 and 3 both at 8.75. KJ has agreed to go back and try again to give this show a chance and not be so judgemental.

    WarpMyTardis: Season 4, Episode 10 - War of the Worlds

    WarpMyTardis: Season 4, Episode 10 - War of the Worlds

    This week on the show War of the Worlds… and we are not talking about Tom Cruise. Welcome to Season 4 Episode 10 of Warp my Tardis Podcast. KJ and Chulak got straight into tonight’s topic H.G. Wells The War of the Worlds, a Victorian era book about invaders from Mars, but also a social commentary on the expansion and domination of the British Empire.
    For tonight’s episode KJ and Chulak both watched the 1953 Hollywood version of the movie, which was directed and produced by a stellar group of individuals including Executive producer Cecile B DeMille. The movie, was typical of other films of the post-war era with big casts, lots of practical effects, and big budgets.
    The problem with War of the Worlds is that when you Americanize the story, it just loses something in translation. Somehow having listened to the Orson Wells radio broadcasts and comparing them against the 1953 film, there is much to be desired, but some of that KJ believes is because of the talent and believability of Orson Wells.
    On review, Chulak gives the 1953 movie a 7.5 and KJ a solid 8. But by today’s expected standards, the movie drops closer to a 4.5. While the visuals are stunning, the casting and story adaptation are just lacking.
    Next time on Warp My Tardis, KJ and Chulak will be reviewing the latest in the Kaiju films, Godzilla King of the Monsters. Join us in 2 weeks.
