PlotCulture interviews Amber Benson, the Director/Writer/Actress best known for her role of Tara McClay in the cult hit tv-show Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
We discuss her newest book series and contemplate the question of Who REALLY killed Tara McClay.
Recorded at BayCon2015
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.
In the interview we discuss my Grassy Knoll theory – a theory that wil soon be its own whole post, but for this interview, please refer to the image below to understand what we are talking about.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen.
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….
Please Drink Responsibly. And don’t give people tea if they don’t want tea.
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!
Topaz Tallywhacker here to report on the epic scifi flick The Fifth Element! It seems that the planet of Culture in the Galaxy of Plot has sent out a new radio transmission! These transmissions have been getting more and more frequent lately and we here at Plot to the C are giving your the goods!
In the far off distant future – THIS ALIEN meets THIS DUDE in order to save the WORLD!!! (and all life ever, minor detail)They are joined by Ruby Rhod, my idol and the embodiment of FUTURE SEXY!!!!
Together they all go see a SPACE OPERA!!!!!
(and later save the world, but c’mon, SPACE OPERA!!!!)
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

Normally Plot Culture reviews old films. But twice a year we put all of our movie bingeing on hold and…. watch Dancing with the Stars like fanatics.
