What's New

19 Sep 17

You can tell where a person really stands when the chips are down. How much honor do you think we'll find in a disgraced former Templar? Loads, I'm sure. Find out in Chapter 21 of TBP. In other news, there's fun from the 80s coming up this weekend. Stay tuned.

We've got more fun with the Musketeers with the 1948 version of The Three Musketeers, the 1939 version of The Man in the Iron Mask and the 1998 version as well, plus the non-canonical new generation film featuring a swashbuckling Maureen O'Hara, At Sword's Point. And only loosely related because it involves French swashbuckling and because I mistakenly thought it was another of Dumas' works, the 1934 version of The Scarlet Pimpernel. This version of The Scarlet Pimpernel gets an homage in one of my favorite films, so I've decided to feature that and some other goodies from the 80s next time. Also, more TBP. Stay tuned.

It's been a long, hard road. Wouldn't it be nice to take things easy for a change? Maybe we'll get exactly that in Chapter 20 of CeleKing1. We're getting closer to the end. Seems like yesterday we were just kicking off this journey. Anyway, we've still got reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

You can't make a long trip without supplies, but when you'd rather not be seen, it presents a bit of a problem. We see how our gang handles the issue in Chapter 20 of TBP. Look for more CeleKing1 and swashbuckling reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

There's one mobile game I've started playing since acquiring a tablet that I didn't feature last week, so now it gets to enjoy the spotlight without being overshadowed by Fire Emblem. It's the Sega RPG Hortensia Saga, which currently doesn't appear to have any prospects for an English release. Since the game has a fantasy French setting, I thought it would be appropriate to feature the Three Musketeers. We've got Richard Lester's Musketeer trilogy for your: The Three Musketeers, The Four Musketeers: Milady's Revenge and Return of the Musketeers. And to round out our selection, rather than take another Musketeer movie, I decided to go with another film by Richard Lester, 1976's Robin and Marian. I think I'll go on and give you the other Musketeer movies in the backlog next week. We've also got more TBP and CeleKing1, so look forward to that. Stay tuned.

There's a lot of dread built up around what lies south of the River Pendragon. Do you think there's anything to it? Well, you're about to find out in Chapter 19 of TBP. And you can comfort yourself with the thought that that's where Cassandra and company are headed. We've still got reviews with an undetermined theme coming up. Stay tuned.

Last week I gave you some sequels before I actually showed you the reviews for the movies that came first. Well, it's time to remedy that. We've got the brilliant but mind-numbingly obtuse 2001: A Space Odyssey, Chinatown and The Guns of Navarone. And because I just recently beat the game, I've got a review of Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia and to accompany it, I've also got the mobile release Fire Emblem Heroes, which I've been playing for well over a month now. Next week I'll cover the other mobile game I've added to my roster, Hortensia Saga. I have yet to decide what's going to fill the other review slots. I'm sure I'll think of something. We've got more TBP coming up. Stay tuned.

We've got a big showdown brewing in Chapter 19 of CeleKing1. Wouldn't you know it? Batista's the last one to find out about these things. We've still got reviews coming up. Stay tuned.

Two weeks ago I left you with a pretty big cliffhanger and now it's time to pick up the story where we left off in Chapter 18 of TBP. We've got some big reveals this time 'round, so get psyched for that. Also, look for more CeleKing1 and reviews on the horizon. Stay tuned.

So the theme this week is sequels. In particular, these are sequels that are vastly overshadowed by their predecessors. We start with the sequels to two films already featured on the site: Futureworld for Westworld and The Cell 2. We follow it with three sequels whose predecessors haven't shown up here yet: 2010: The Year We Make Contact, Force 10 From Navarone and The Two Jakes. As you might imagine, featuring the earlier films for this trio will be on the agenda for next week, plus whatever I decide to go with for the other two slots. We've got more TBP and CeleKing1 on the story front, so look forward to that. Stay tuned.

Well, our heroes have been thrown a curveball and the villains continue to get their ducks in a row with Chapter 17 of TBP. Blood and death are sure to follow, but I have a feeling that's part of the reason you're here. In other news, incongruous sequels and other oddities on the horizon. Stay tuned.
