    Schlocktober: Attack of the Super Monsters and Return of the Dinosaurs

    Last week on Schlocktober, the films I talked about, while not exactly common names in movies, are still probably somewhat known to anyone who's familiar with science fiction. Them! was a downright hit in its day, after all. This week however, I'm going obscure....really, really obscure. Attack of the Super Monsters and Return of the Dinosaurs. If you've ever heard of, or watched these two pieces of cheese....well, then congratulations on being as strange as I am.

    While both of these productions originally came from Tsuburaya Productions in Japan (the creators Ultraman, a series in which a normal man could turn himself into a costumed giant to fight off raging giant monsters from beyond the stars. No, really, stop laughing!), their brief moments in the American spotlight came during the initial VHS boom back in the 80's. The long and the short of it was that there was a shortage of content actually on video for some genres of fiction, back in the day. And as such, there was plenty of opportunities to make money on importing  something from Japan or Italy (Yes, Italy did a whole slew of both knock off and original sci-fi movies that got American releases), doing a quick dub and releasing it to the market.

    Return of the Dinosaurs was the first of these two. In Japan it was a TV series known as Kyoryu Tankentai Born Free (Dinosaur Exploration Team Born Free), which is the much cooler title in my opinion. The plot? Well, it all begins with a large comet doing a drive by on earth, without actually hitting us. However, its gravitational pull was still somehow strong enough to make volcanoes explode, cause tidal waves to wash away whole cities, and split and up heave the ground enough to release whole swathes of vegetation and creatures from the Mesozoic Era back to the surface world. But as soon as they re-appear, they begin to die off again, because (surprise, surprise)  ancient plants and animals can't survive in the modern era. How they survived under ground is never explained. My personal theory is that the earthquakes uncovered the rich veins of Dinosaurinium that criss-cross the planet.

    Here's where things start to get kind of ridiculous. In the wake of some manner of world wide disaster (remember some of these tidal waves have washed away *cities*), the world decides to go and create a team to round up and protect the dinosaurs. ....Because that's a thing we should be worried about when a comet has decided to redecorate large swathes of the planet earth. Really, the whole thing is just an excuse to have our characters go traipsing through jungles to capture dinosaurs with their very toyetic vehicles.

    And toyetic is really the word. For you see, this show is a mix of three different styles. The vehicles really are toys/models that were put together. The dinosaurs? Stop motion animation and puppets. And the humans in this little drama? Animation. The result is...downright surreal to watch really, a fact that's not helped by the dub on this one. It's one of those early anime style dubs where everything is delivered in a kind of deadpan lack of emotion. And as this is a compilation of episodes re-edited into a movie, it follows a very similar pattern across its hour and a half run time. But if you really want to see just how silly this thing gets....


    Someone uploaded the whole thing onto YouTube. Dinosaur Exploration Team Born Free would run for twenty-six episodes in its native Japan, before being replaced by an even more out there premise. Kyoryu Daisenso Aizenbogu, loosely translated into English as Dinosaur War Izenborg, and known in the US as Attack of the Super Monsters.

    While Return of the Dinosaurs was more of curiosity in my mind Attack of the Super Monsters is the kind of absolute balls to the wall insanity I've come to know and love from Japanese science fiction. Much like Return, it begins with a sudden cataclysm, but the cataclysm this time is the sudden re-appearance of the dinosaurs themselves, who have apparently been hiding under ground for millions of years, evolving intelligence, the ability to talk, and fearsome supernatural powers.  Now, under the leadership of the mad Emperor Tyrannus (Emperor Tyrannus!), they seek to destroy all of humanity.

    They are opposed by a response team that drives a set of even more ridiculous looking toy based vehicles. They are also hand drawn animation and break down along the standard Japanese stereotypes for this kind of arrangement. The stern and humorless leader, his more emotional sister, the tall nerdy looking smart guy, the bumbling fat comic relief guy, and the exposition delivering doctor who stays back at home base while everyone else does the actual work. What's notable about this one is that the brother and sister in this one have the ability to fuse together into one composite being known as Gemini, which gives their toy plane such an effective upgrade in power that you wonder why they just don't do that in the first place! (Yes, there is a time limit on their power, but they always kill the monster so fast you wonder why it matters.) Ever notice how escalating transformations with different stages of power is a very Japanese fiction thing? Weird huh?

    This is another episode compilation "movie", so we get to see the Gemini response team kill four different dinosaurs turned kaiju before we get a quasi ending. Personally, my favorite bit of this whole production is Emperor Tyrannus himself. I know that he's just a T.Rex puppet, but the over the top performance from the voice actor with his constant calls of "YOU WILL ALL BE DESTROYED!" and "KILL THEM! DESTROY!", never fail to crack me up. Nick Cage doesn't chew scenery the way this T-Rex puppet does and it is *glorious*!

    And look....

    Attack of the Super Monsters

    Someone was nice enough to upload it to DailyMotion!  Seriously, if you have a chance, at least watch the opening five minutes or so, where they give the back-story of this insane universe. It is well worth a look, if for no other reason then to see the madness.

    Next week....something else!

    Schlocktober: Them! and Empire of the Ants

    The giant mutated insect running amok is one of those stables of schlocky B-grade science fiction movies. Spiders remain one of the more poplar choices here, presumably because they are the best at scaring the absolute bejeezus out of people. But for my money, the insect de jure for a movies like this is the ant, because of one movie.

    1954's Them! is probably the least schlocky movie that I'll cover in this little series, for a variety of reasons. Warner Brothers put some support behind this movie, and it showed in the fact that it was nominated for a special effects Oscar and it won a Golden Reel Award for best sound editing. It was one of the first movies to play with the fallout of nuclear weapons and one of the first "big bug" films, that would spawn dozens of imitators throughout the years. It, as a film, is one of the foundation stones of science fiction.

    The movie begins with a pair of New Mexico state troopers, Ben Peterson (James Whitmore) and Ed Blackburn (Chris Drake), finding a little girl wandering along the side of the road in a state of complete shock. Back tracking her path, they find a trailer home that's been torn to pieces, the only real clue as to what's happened is a single odd animal track and an odd call on the wind. On their way to take the girl in, they come across a local general store that has been similarly trashed. Ed offers to stay behind to secure the site while his partner goes on. However, its not long before Blackburn hears the strange warbling chitter from before. Leaving the building, the last thing we hear is his screaming and discharging his weapon off camera while the cry grows louder and more intense.

    That, most importantly, is the reason why Them! holds up the way it does. It holds off the reveal of the titular giant ants at first, using wrecked sets, dark lighting, and blowing sand on the winds to set a mood, using the fear of the unknown to wind up its viewers. This is also why the movie scared the hell out of me back when I first saw it when I was four.

    Admittedly, once the reveal of the giant ants happens, the movie becomes more of a straight creature feature with some of the usual hallmarks of the genre. White guys talking to each other, calling in the army and so on and so forth.  The final showdown takes place in the drainage tunnels beneath LA, where it all ends in fire. Good flick though!

    Time would march along in the world of science fiction, and nuclear radiation would become supplanted by new sources of mutation, including such things as toxic radiation and genetic manipulation. Which brings us to the next giant ant movie that I wanted to touch upon, Empire of the Ants.

    Empire of the Ants is loosely (and I mean very loosely) based on a short story by H.G Wells. But where the Wells tale has the ants as normal sized, but just frighteningly intelligent (which in some ways feels even worse), the Bert I. Gordon movie uses toxic waste to make the ants really big, as well as intelligent. Or maybe they were always intelligent. The movie isn't all that clear.

    Bert I. Gordon is probably familiar to anyone who's watched MST3K, as that show broadcast one of the director's earlier movies The Beginning of the End, which featured giant grasshoppers (really) attacking Chicago. Bert's chosen weapon for realizing his giant creatures is the tool of rear-projection, using close up footage of the actual animals involved.

    This...honestly is what undermines Empire of the Ants more than anything else in the end. The actors, already stuck playing some of the big 70's movie character cliches, have to react to things that usually aren't in the same shot as them, there's no real way to control the ants like you could with a CGI construct. There are multiple times where the ants would start to walk on the sky because the actual ants were climbing on the backdrop they were filmed against.

    The most interesting thing about this movie in my mind, is that the giant ants have actually taken over a town, with the queen using her pheromones to brainwash the humans into serving their whims, which mostly seems to be growing and refining sugar for them. Which makes them very lazy ants, really. Just let the humans do all the work, and then we'll sit around and eat all the sugar! At least until this plucky band of vacationers set the queen on fire and ruin everything, the jerks.

    In the end though, Empire just can't hold up to Them! and seems to be more indicative of where creature features would end up in the end, landing more on your SyFy Channel as other brands of Science Fiction rose to take new dominance over the genre.  Still, I stand by my thoughts that ants totally make better giant monster fodder than spiders.

    Next week on Schlocktober, we bounce over to Japan to talk about two tokusatsu series that were edited down into a pair of stand alone VHS movies for a US release. Till next time!

    Schlocktober

    Welcome to October everyone!

    While some people care for summer, and others for winter, I am much more of a fall person. The depths of autumn with its cool winds and the swoosh of  leaves on the ground. Love it, love it, love it!  You know what I also love? Bad movies! Or at least a specific kind of bad movie. I grew up on the kind of schlocky, bad acting, bad special effects B-Grade monster movies that were the staple of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and the like.

    Any of my followers who hang out over at the video game website The Escapist, are probably familiar with their contributor Bob "Moviebob" Chipman, who does the two shows Escape to the Movies (a movie review show) and The Big Picture which is more a discussion of general topics in geekdom. But every October, he does four weeks of episodes where he shows off and discusses obscure science fiction and horror movies that totally fit the above mold.

    I think it's a great idea, and is something I look forward too every October. So, in a show of solidarity with mister Chipman, that is totally not me ripping off his style, I will be doing my own mini-Schlocktober this year! Four articles about the kind of cheesy, B-Grade, science fiction movies that I absolutely love!

    See you all in this space this Friday, where I begin this Shlocktober with the natural starting point. Ants!

    Review: Gotham Series Premiere

    Last night, the FOX network began showing its quasi Batman origin series, Gotham.

    I've been seeing the previews for this one for a while now, running on the same general theme of "see how Gotham and Batman's rogues gallery came to be.". Naturally, when you're dealing with a prequel story like this, it's hard to escape the big question that hangs overhead like a storm cloud.  When you know what the end result will be, how do you find the drama on the path to get there? After all, unless there is a massive deviation from the accepted Batman story, Bruce Wayne will become the caped crusader, Oswald Cobblepot will become The Penguin and so on and so forth.

    Ultimately, the answer to that question will always come down to the individual. For some, the predetermined nature of a work like this (real or imagined), will always invest the story with a certain amount of hollowness or inherent pointlessness; while, for others, seeing exactly how we got from point A to point B (complete with all the little plot diversions and cul-de-sacs) is just as enjoying as the stories that happen after the end result.

    For myself, I lean more towards the later, so I was at the very least interested in seeing where FOX is going to take this story before it inevitably gets cancelled by the executive team that replaces the one that greenlit it.

    Thusly, we enter in on this version of Gotham City with a young Selena Kyle (Camren Bicondova) engaging in some pick pocketing before almost being caught and forced to run. Escaping down a back alley, she finds herself watching one of the DCU's most iconic and timeline shaping moments. The murders of Thomas and Martha Wayne. The case is caught by Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) and relative newcomer to the force, Detective James Gordon (Ben McKenzie). From there the two get dragged into trying to uncover who was responsible for the Wayne's murder, and end up crossing paths with the crime figure Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith), an under boss in Carmine Falcone's (John Doman) crime syndicate.

    Along the way we are also treated to a bevy of other future Gotham villains making their first appearances, including Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) working as one of Mooney's henchmen; Edward Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) as one of the GCPD's forensic investigators; and a renamed Ivy Pepper (Clare Foley), as the young and obviously abused girl who will someday become one of the DCU's greatest eco-terrorists.

    I'll be the first to say, that I didn't exactly have high hopes for this one before I decided to watch it. The idea reminded me of Smallville, which....I was never able to get into. I enjoy superheroes because of the fantastical, and Smallville's whole mantra of "no tights, no flights" in regards to Superman always kind of made me mentally check out. I've also been less than impressed with a lot of what DC has been doing as of late, especially on the comic book front (They know exactly what they did!).

    But...it kind of works better with the Gotham setup. For, while there is still a fantastical element with what happens in that city (guy who carries around a ventriloquist dummy as a player in organized crime, nuff said), there is that more grounded aspect too. Mob bosses and drug smugglers and all of those things that would also work in a police procedural.

    Which is really where this portrayal works, in my opinion.  The actors sell their portrayals really well across the board, with special marks to Cory Michael Smith annoying his fellow officers with riddles, and Jada Pinkett Smith proving that she can swing from charming and flattering to violently angry at the drop of a hat. But all of that is hung on the bones of a solid police story with the question of "Who killed the Waynes?".

    So, yeah, the first episode was really entertaining. I'm going to be interested in seeing where exactly this roller-coaster goes. Buy the ticket, ride the ride.

Everypony in Ponyville knows Carrot Top, the element of generosity. Always ready with kind words and a helping hoof when they're needed.

But when Carrot Top finds herself stuck between her friends in the Farmer's Union, and a request from Applejack, she turns to a legend of the Everfree to gain some extra hoof power. But strange magic has its consequences.

Will Ponyville and Carrot Top be able to deal with them?

A Lunaverse story, set in the fall of Season 2.

Was it proper social etiquette to let a magical clone have the bed?

Carrot Top you're just to nice.

The magical clone is just so darling, it almost a shame its going to get 'deleted' in some way.

And nice link into half crazy as well.

I did enjoy writing that line. Seemed like an amusing little bit to kind of highlight the debate within her own head.

The link to Half Crazy was kind of un-intentional, I will admit, but I am grateful for the happy coincidence. :twilightsmile:

Oh, my. This is going to end very badly.......

#4 · 39w, 4d ago · 3 · · Carrot's Conundrum ·

>>3807984

Although it would probably break the universe I could see Carrot keeping a single clone at the end partly out of pity and partially because they're just so useful.

"O.k. just stay out of sight and if anypony comes visiting hide in the cellar. If anyone does ask you're my sister, right?"

The bedraggled clone looked up with tears of gratitude in it's eyes, it nodded excitedly, "I'll Help!" it said.

#5 · 39w, 4d ago · · · Carrot's Conundrum ·

You have my endorsement.

#6 · 39w, 4d ago · · · Carrot's Conundrum ·

Well, at least these clones aren't destructively devoted to fun...

In any case, I look forward to more of this tragicomic tale of too many Carrot Tops.

#7 · 39w, 4d ago · · · Carrot's Conundrum ·

The added edits are all looking sharp and I'd like to give special commendation to the scene with Trixie,

The unicorn seemed to be in the process of making another one of her...unique culinary creations. A slice of watermelon floated along, buoyed by her shimmering magic aura, and slathered with peanut butter. A coating of some kind of red powder was dusted over the peanut butter along with...chives?
Excellent!  Not only do we get the setup that plants the cloning idea in CT's head, but we also get more of Trixie's bizarre taste in foods as a bonus.

--HOWEVER--

once I’m here, Green Grape asked for some help fixing his farm, also tomorrow.
Could have sworn GreenGrape was a mare. :raritywink:

>>3808016

Well yeah, but the problem is that once you've taught the clones how to make more of themselves, they seem to do so almost compulsively.  The Pinkies were bad enough, but at least they could be distracted with the promise of something fun to do.  The CT clones, however, want to "help" and regrettably the more hooves they have the "better" they would always think themselves able to do so.

Besides, as we see with breakfast, even just the one clone is more than a bit too eager to help.

#10 · 39w, 4d ago · · · Carrot's Conundrum ·

>>3808532

Thanks EB! A watermelon, peanut butter, chilli, chive and carrot slider is certainly a unique food creation. I can only imagine what a thing like that would actually taste like.

Completely missed that one bit with Green Grapes though. :twilightoops: Went back in and fixed it though!

#11 · 39w, 4d ago · · · Carrot's Conundrum ·

I'd prefer not to...:pinkiesick:

#12 · 39w, 4d ago · · · Carrot's Conundrum ·

>>3808658

The funny thing is, that some of the component pieces could work on their own. I've seen recipes for peanut butter infused chilli, and peanuts are a big part of Thai cooking.

Likewise, fruit and peanut butter can go well together.

But all together? That's where the train wreck would come in, I think.

The only thing in that mix, on reflection, that is “weird” is the watermelon. Although…

I'll put my own concerns about the clones and their sapience aside as much as I can, but I gotta admit the climax of the Maneverse episode was very offputting to me. Still, with that aside hopefully there'll be a lot of wacky hijinks before this is all done.

I do understand your concern there RK, but I do think that I have an angle to kind of avoid some of the ethical concerns. Thanks for reading either way, though. :twilightsmile:

*both grin*

#31 · 39w, 2d ago · · · Carrot's Conundrum ·

>>3820638

Yes but unless she keeps an eye on the thin she'll end up with a 500ft pit under her house which would probably collapse her house and the whole farm into a sink hole.

Clone: "I just don't know what went wrong!"

#32 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

Oh, my. There used to be a Canadian sitcom on PBS called "The Industry"; every so often, the main character's Evil Scheme of the Week would collapse. When this happened, he looked right at the camera and said "This is not good." I should think that watching all of her duplicated be "helpful" would cause CT to do the same thing.

#33 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

They have a hive mind?

That could get...interesting...

#34 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

>>3843917

It's kind of a mixture of a hive mind with a limited pool of reference when you get right down to it. You have one copy of Carrot Top's knowledge and personality, that all of the clones are pulling from...at the same time.

Which is what's causing the super literal interpretations, the missing pieces of knowledge, the leaps on logic that seem full of holes, and so on and so forth.

#35 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

>>3843967

So it's not that you get diminishing returns from the act of copying copies, its that you have one pool of experience they're all drawing from at the same time.

#36 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

>>3844383

Pretty much.

I like to think of it like you running a whole mess of programs at the same time, till your computer's RAM is crying "Uncle!" and begging for you to stop.

#37 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

The front door slammed open, Lyra and Trixie skidding to a stop as a Carrot Top came stumbling out of the building, Twilight Sparkle right on her tail. The librarian had a pair of books brandished in her magic aura like some manner of righteous sword. Her purple coat was marked with ink, a flurry of dates marked across her body from crest to dock, withers to pastern.

This might cause problems, doesn't Twilight's alarm bracelet go off if she leaves the library?

I like the slightly defective 'carrot' Carrot Top, plus did the poison joke work on the clone or did it just lock up for different reasons?

#38 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

>>3844705

Well, in Twlight's case, she ran out the door and her designated "go outside the house guide" was right there. So, I imagine that even if she did get called on it, it would be very easy to get out of.

In terms of the Carrot Top clone, it more got caught in a logical paradox and blue screened of death. :pinkiecrazy:

#39 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

>>3844744

Oh yeah, second/third law prerogative mismatch, seen it happen all the time.

So, as clones are returned to the Mirror Pool, does that mean that the sum total gets more lucid?  

#40 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

>>3846021

In theory, yes.

Naturally I won't comment in how things will actually play out in the story, as I don't want to spoil things.

#41 · 38w, 4d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

The calm before the storm. 5 bits say that one copy is going to the Pool and creates a stampeding army of Carrot Top clones.:raritydespair:

#42 · 38w, 3d ago · · · Carrot Craziness ·

“That was Carrot Top. See, Carrot Top needed help helping ponies. So Carrot Top got help from Carrot Top, Carrot Top, Carrot Top and Carrot Top! Then even more ponies needed help, so Carrot Top got help from Carrot Top, Carrot Top and Carrot Top!”
Well, Lyra, it could've been worse.

In any case, given the author's note, it appears we're in for a containment breach soon enough. This should be... interesting. :pinkiecrazy:

(Also, as a final note, clone is a necromancy spell. Just a bit of Fridge Horror.)

I bet you five silver bits that Carrot Top made more than the six clones currently in the Library basement.

Especially at the end when he made billions off of Robot Slaughter. Then again, Victor should have been allowed to say it after successfully pulling off a Starscream.
