The beautiful Ingrid Pitt died a week ago tomorrow. The funny (and versatile) Leslie Nielsen died yesterday. B-Movie Monday celebrates their careers with some trailers and clips from their B-Movie careers.
To everybody out there, The Amazing RPG Fun Pad wishes you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving! Remember the blessings you've received, the family you love, the friends you cherish. Reflect on what you are thankful for. Peace!
On this day back in 1963 one of my favorite TV shows ever premiered across the pond in Merrie Olde England. That show was an educational program called Doctor Who. Happy 47th birthday to a show that gave me show much fun on winter Saturday afternoons on PBS when I was a child.
The Eleven Doctors:
Top row: William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker
Middle Row: Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann Bottom Row: Christopher, David Tennant, Matt Smith
The Fourth, Third and Tenth Doctors are my favorites.
The Pirates of the Sea of Great Peril are a varied and colorful lot. Many fly under the colors of the Family of the Sea. There are independent operators, but no one trusts them.
The Sulduku Hierophants have many treaures (both religious and secular) in their Island home. Although many countries and kingdoms have respected the Hierophant's neutrality, there are those who do not. Pictured here are the Red Monks of Sulduku, Guardians of the Relics. Disguised from the world, wielding blades of meteoric iron, they are the last sight many a tomb robber has been graced with.
A recent unwanted development is the creation of the Haemoborgs. Warlord Scimitar Blayde of the Steel Warlords developed a biofuel conversion adaptor for his personal cyborg bodyguard corps. Unfortunately, saboteurs from the Anti-Robodroid Enclave delivered a virus that gave the Haemoborgs an insatiable thirst for blood!
Most Vanthians hunt the dinosaurs of Dino Island with a variety of rifles and lasers. The Hanta-Sealgaire Clan from the City of Thunders prefer to hunt dinosaurs only with their Martial Arts Prowess.
The reach of Darth Viraxis stretches across the face of Vanth. Pictured here is one of his servitors, Lord Oskar Steiner. From his secret giant skull shaped cliff base amongst the Seven Mile Pillars of Haragorn, he sends his Technomantic Robodroid lackeys to infiltrate the Cities of Blackhawk and Bloodhaven.
This week we "celebrate" the SciFi/SyFy Original Movies. They are not the best, even by my admittedly low movie watching standards. A SyFy Original is usually a rote, by the numbers genre film with cheesy plots and low budgets. The cast is made up of newbies, Canadian actors, stars who would have been in syndicated genre TV shows 20 years ago, and two or three recognizable names. They probably ripped off another movie. Add a usually CGI generated monster and shake it up. There are exceptions, but most of them are kind of meh.
But what the hell! Here are some of my favorite trailers for SyFy Original movies.
