Podcast: 007 SPECTRE Predictions and Bond Talk- No Spoilers!

We here at PlotCulture have a deep and abiding love of all things Bond.

In fact, we started the podcast as a way to talk about James Bond. We are major Bond (fan)Girls.

So in this episode of PlotCulture, recorded BEFORE seeing the new James Bond film SPECTRE, we share our predictions and our thoughts about what the new movie will hold.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Bond canon – Where does Spectre fit into the overall Bond canon?
  • SPECTRE – The Super Villain Justice League Or Just a bunch of weirdos?
  • Daniel Craig’s Breaking Bond – How does Craig’s Bond differ from other Bonds?
  • Our least favorite Bond Movie – Which one is it??
  • James Bond’s sexuality!! Thistle puts forth her argument that Bond is omnisexual.
  • Fanfic Ships – We discuss 007Q (Thistle thinks its predictable post Skyfall), and our favorite ships (Tracy/Bond 5EVER)
  • GLOBAL IMPACT!! – All Bond movies are reflections of the fears of their time – what do we think SPECTRE will reflect?
  • American Pessimism – Have our Glory Days really passed us by? Are we in Decline? WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR 007!!?!?!?

As you can see, this episode is jammy-dodger packed with interesting content, informed predictions, and as always, PlotCulture banter.

If you are new to the Bond Fandom, this is a great place to help you understand the background on SPECTRE,

We are so thankful to Amber, to BayCon, to Lawrence our Sound man, and to Karl for giving us the opportunity. This was far and away one of the coolest things we’ve done so far and we are so excited to include interviews in our podcast format.

Mortal Kombat

Podcast: Mortal Kombat + Drinking Game!


Today we are reviewing the 1995 film Mortal Kombat, based on the video games of the same name. This film is epic(ly bad)! With Puppets! and Fight Scenes! and Human Corpse Candle Holders! (ew…)

We at Plot Culture think this movie would make a most epic party movie and have devised a Drinking Game for such events. Here is a Printable Drinking Game Cheat Sheet! If you take the challenge, please let us know! Send us pictures! Especially if you are pretty and single. Heeeeyyyyy….

Mortal Kombat Drinking Game

Please Drink Responsibly. And don’t give people tea if they don’t want tea.

Film Summary

The film starts with Liu Kang being called back to take part in the FIGHT FOR HUMANITY!! Oh my. He is joined by Sonya and Johnny Cage, as well as a whole bunch of other random people and Thistle’s favorite character: the random black guy who only has a handful of lines and then dies horribly in Mortal Kombat but was cool and should have had a better role.

They are guided in their journey by the eternal thunder god Raiden, a white dude with smoker’s lung, and together they all end up in another dimension/place by taking a nightmare boat. For some reason Raiden likes them and swishes about not doing much but looking intimidating. In the weird dimension/place they meet Kitana, a hot ninja princess who seems to have the ability to mentally project a phrase of words into your head, provided she has said that exact phrase to you five minutes before hand. Its a weird power. They fight a bunch of lackeys in Mortal Kombat, including a creepy puppet that kills the cool black dude. Sonya gets creeped on but its never really explained and Johnny Cage pulls a roadrunner to save the day. Sonya and Shang Tsung have a makeover party and then Shang is kicked by Liu Kang. A lot. An awful lot of kicking. Mortal Kombat Kicking!

Anway. Thats the summary, check out the podcast!

Podcast – Netflix Original Series: Richie Rich

Generally speaking, Netflix Originals are things to be savored, cooed over, and adored. And then you get Netflix Original “Richie Rich” Reboot.

Richie Rich, as a series, is the atomic wasteland of Netflix original programming, and not in a fun Dystopia kind of way.

Thistle wrote a full write-up on the series after we recorded, which is available HERE for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks for listening! We hope you hear us again soon!

Podcast : Avengers Grimm

We watched the new Studio Asylum film – AVENGERS GRIMM! A strange and twisted mash up of fairy tale and action flock that culminates in the Bizarre.
Hold onto your Hairnets, its going to get weird.

“When Rumpelstiltskin destroys the Magic Mirror and escapes to the modern world, the four princesses of “Once Upon a Time”-Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, and Rapunzel-are sucked through the portal too. Well-trained and endowed with magical powers, the four women must fight Rumpelstiltskin and his army of thralls before he enslaves everyone on Earth.” – The Asylum via IMDB
