Operation Nakshatra - ThrilleMystery - 2.5/5 - Available on Prime
Operation nakshatra is a mystery thriller that tries to punch above its weight. Movie features a ton of characters who pop up on screen & suddenly take over the story line throughout its runtime to keep the mystery going, which for a nuanced viewer will feel gimmicky. Movie stars Aditi prabhudeva & Yagna shetty in pivotal roles & other array of character actors who all play caricaturish roles as plot doesn't demand much acting prowess. Plot revolves around a business tycoon Srikanta, played well be Deepak shetty, & his family. Aditi prabhudeva, his daughter falls in love with a gym instructor, which causes a rift within the family as her lover has to prove his worth to her father by doubling his fortune in a month. Till then movie hits all the cliches to form an underdog love story among class divides & will have you yawning for the most part at how cliched the start is, from here onwards it takes a turn with unexpected events shocking the viewer, as story unfolds with a twist revealed every 5 minutes or so, the final explanation although cohesive, will also make you question the sanity of characters & piss-poor decision making on their part. Its one of those movies which rely on extremely dumb decisions & over the top co-incidences to make the mystery work. I wouldn't call it a waste of your time but the way movie undermines its viewers capability to deduce & expects viewer to gloss over the stupidity of the plot is too demanding for a mystery movie.
Punda Prachanda - Action - 2/5 - Available on Youtube
Only reason to watch this movie is to watch couple of charismatic actors, Ramesh & Shankar nag share screen-space as brothers. Both these actors are adored by viewers & watching them bounce off each other is a treat. However, the experience is marred by Shankar nag being dubbed by someone else, due to his unfortunate demise during shooting & by inexperienced direction of the movie to make use of the talent at its disposal. Ramesh & Shankarnag, are well meaning youngsters who dedicate their time for betterment of society as they dish out their own brand of justice to help the needy. They do so in comical ways that's funny only because Ramesh & Shankarnag inject their Charisma & enthusiasm into it. Shruthi & Vanitha vasu plays the romantic interest for lead actors & both are placed just to add the Oomph factor. Movie picks up steam as duo encounters drug peddlers which then takes them go face to face with drug mafia leaders, played by Jai jagdeesh & Dheerendra gopal, who are criminally underused. The tussle, which gets personal, is entertaining as they plot around these mafias pitting one against another, escalating their rivalry. Movie as it gets entertaining is also marred by several scenes that just seem out of place & incompetent, every time you see a bit of quality it gets overshadowed by a misplaced scene & dialogues. There is a scene where a villain gets mauled by dogs which is comically shot instead of being fear inducing & then they do it once more again. Such poor decisions & incompetence makes it a tough watch. No matter how much you adore the lead pair & how catchy hamsalekha songs is, the movie is below average for its well paced script & is brilliant at patches only.
Vasantha poornima - Drama - 2.5/5 - Available on Youtube
Vasantha poornima stars Amabarish, Priyanka, Balakrishna & SushmaVeer. Its a wholesome family movie which has a very pleasing first half or so. Ambarish plays a role of a famous Doctor, with Sushmaveer his sister, & Priyanka falls head over heels in love with him after a few co-incidental meetings. Priyanka with her cute, lovable & quirky antiques carries the movie in the start, while Ambarish & co appears to be sleepwalking through their roles. Priyanka emulates Malashree in her acting & sometimes watching her alongside unhealthily obese Amabrish makes it uncomfortable. The contrast of young & beautiful actress next to a much older & obese actor is grating. Love story depicted between Priyanka & Ambarish which is intended to be comical & quirky, appears to be toxic but thanks to cute as a button priyanka you will just flow with it. Movie picks pace as it enters the final phase with Ambarish opposing the marriage of his sister with Balakrishna, a dancer, who has fell into unfortunate circumstances. The Climax scene is a much powerful one, despite of being how improbable it is. As Amabrish & Balakrishna flex their muscles in acting movie goes from 0 to 100 & sudden change in tone grasps the viewer in. Despite how eye-rollingly wholesome the earlier part was the climax makes you invested in the movie as you get eager & eager to see it end well for all involved. It seems like entire movie is written around the Climax, with even lead actor Ambarish flexing his muscles only for the later part of movie. Overall a good family watch, while Priyanka as an actress will keep you glued, a gripping climax will keep you on edge.
Rangamahal rahasya - HorroThriller - 3/5 Available on Youtube
Rangamahal rahasya is a 1970s thriller movie that surprisingly still holds good for a watch. Movie stars Srinath, Uday kumar, Bharati,Narasimharaju & B V Radha in lead roles. Titular Rangamahal is an abandoned guest house which is infamous for its haunting, wherein every midnight the house is plagued with unexplained noises, footsteps & ghost sightings. This is further amplified as a smuggler & cop are found dead under suspicious circumstances with their bodies missing on second look. With this established, we have all of our leads placed in Rangamahal with an intention of uncovering the truth. They suffer the same fate as hauntings & unexplained events plague them causing a rift between each other, which then ends with a murder of one of their acquaintances. While the suspicion falls on all the leads as each had an axe to grind with the dead guy. Horror aspects of the movie makes sense in a nostalgic way as there doesn't seem to be any cop out in its depiction. While the plot & twists may seem dated with a Scooby-doo touch to it. However the confusion/experiences of the leads in Rangamahal which they suffer day after day seems genuine as even as a viewer you will be engrossed in it. The mystery surrounding the house & murder is palpable & doesn't lose its momentum as it suddenly enter the climax where the revelation upon revelation keeps you awed, along with some laughable set decisions/mechanics & amazing, atleast for me, costume choices.
French biryani - Comedy - 2.5/5 - Available on Prime
Danish sait's new effort French biryani fails is a mad cap comedy that tries to bind France & shivajinagar together in a drug deal gone wrong. Danish sait, Rangayana raghu & an array of capable actors star in this movie & each with a goal of making the situation as comedic as possible. There isn't a single minute of the movie that dedicates to plot but tries to add in as much as possible to make it as comedic as possible, every line, every character is ridiculed just to accommodate for puns & punchlines with a quirky background of Shivajinagar. Comedy & Horror movies are tough genres & is hard to execute them well. French biryani fails to balance story & comedy together. While plot is almost non-existent it balances it out with scenes that appears like an assortment of several skits throughout its runtime. While it expects scenes like France national anthem/Whatsapp video calls to resonate with viewer, lack of investment in characters & story makes it fall flat. Danish sait & Chota don are highlights of this movie where in both these characters entertain just with their mannerisms. Rangayana raghu overacts the hell out of his character. While crass dialogues keeps the laugh coming the lack of continuity with the scenes are jarring. The bar scene pops out of nowhere, dubai travel plot thread just jumps out & so on forcing you to just ignore the plot, which is an unforgiving crime for a cinema. While I expected the movie to be in same style as Humble politician nagaraj & Sakkath studio's loose connection, the expectations were definitely not met & falls well below the high standards set. It has laughs available but this novel effort fails as a movie due to lack of direction & poor decision to cram as many one-liners as possible to a non-existent story. Come to think of it the "France" part of the movie was a gimmick too as it could easily have been someone from mumbai, but the we couldnt have "prawns" jokes, johnny sins jokes & an incompetent heartfelt climax, well such sacrifice to include jokes instead of adding comic sequences to a straight forward story makes it a failed effort.
Inspector Vikram - Action - 3.5/5 - Available on Youtube
Inspector vikram directed by Dinesh baboo is a refreshingly good & an unique movie. Starring Shivrajkumar, kavya in lead roles movie breaks away from usual formula of story telling & instead takes an approach just chronicling the adventures of Inspector vikram, played by Shivaraj kumar. Shivaraj kumar as Inspector vikram is a daredevil carefree cop. He carries the movie alone with his carefree mannerisms all the while apprehending the criminals with ease. Although he is criticized by his superiors to change his childish ways, he smooth talks his way out of altercations with ease. Narrative follows Shivaraj on his day to day life depicted in a comical manner until he apprehends a criminal in Raja who dares him to escape from jail to meet his family. Then the movie shifts to cat & mouse game between Vikram & Raja as the movie takes is on a road trip to mysore. Dinesh baboo's refreshing narrative & vibrant, colorful cinematography carries the movie. Background music by Vijay anand hits the right notes as we are taken into a cinematic journey with Vikram. Kavya plays an adorable lead pair to Shivaraj & the couple looks adorable on screen. The movie is free of serious conflicts & achieves its goal of a slice of life narrative of a playful cop's daily life. Dialogues & running gags are well crafted & unlike many movies of 90s the movie is technically well made & makes use of its cinematic medium & stays as an another timeless classic from talented Dinesh baboo.

2020.06.08 09:05 HeadToToes Have been watching old kannada movies in lockdown as I started to miss going out in the city & here are my reviews or opinions on movies I watched. - part 3

Ganda mane makkalu - Comedy - 2.5/5
Supposed to be a comedy film, this movie starts out looking at issues of a lower middle class family with its breezy comic scenarios. Starring Srinath, Dwarakish, Ramesh in lead roles it looks at a vataara (colony) which is owned by an extremely insensitive owner in Satyabhama. Clashes between owner & a self righteous, srinath escalates from minor tussles in the beginning to a full blown fight. Movie takes a dark turn towards the end as it switches genre from Comedy to Melodrama quickly & aims to target the tear ducts of its viewers by the end. Srinath, who has lived in a colony, decides to build his own house & move out after his eventful face-off with the owner, this faceoff is done so masterfully that its sad the rest of the movie falls apart from this high point. This change suddenly causes rift within the family between parents & kids, then it veers towards melodrama with over the top scenes & events that plans to tug at your heart. Movie tries a lot in its runtime, as it tries to be a comedy & then a social commentary, to a melodrama, however it fails to do anything right as it fails to grasp the core values of its commentary & falls flat as a forgettable try hard of a movie.
Rama rama re - Thriller - 4/5
Rama rama re is a pleasant surprise of a movie. With no notable stars in its starcast this excellent movie sadly didn't get the limelight that it deserved. Movie starts as a road trip of an older man who takes out his jeep to attend to his last day at work. In this trip he meets a drifter who is a wanted death row criminal on the run from police fearing for his life. This forms the core of the story as they travel together each doubting the other mainly due to the bait of cash price that will be awarded to anyone who can find the criminal. Their journey then mingles with lovers on the run, to a bunch of villagers on hunt for these lovers & a pregnant woman stranded by roadside. All these turns of events takes a toll an the driver & criminal, as they start to introspect about their lives. Movie has wonderful pacing & never lags. The locations are scenic & helps highlight the desolation of the situation. The dialogues are sharp & to the point & characters arcs mingles with each other with an ease. The movie ends on a strong note & the song "helu krishna" plays a vital role in the nature of this movie & helps understand the philosophy & theme. A must watch gem.
Aparichita - Suspense/Thriller - 3.5/5
Aparichita a suspense thriller is the first film directed by Kashinath, a director well known for his comedy movies. Aparichita stars Suresh heblikar in lead role as a writer, who visits his friend's village on business purpose. However, he notes that his friend is missing & is presumed dead by villagers, with no body to be found. Suresh heblikar sets on to look into this matter as he starts snooping around while staying in a guest house offered by is friend's stepmom. Movie hints at a deeper mystery behind his friends disappearance as every character that is introduced is hiding a secret of their own, which is expertly shown in bits with dialogues & music. Music forms the strong point of the film as it builds the foreboding atmosphere. As in all films of its time, it features a love story in between, which doesn't appear jarring thanks to sharp dialog, chemistry of the leads & the smoothness with which it is introduced in to the plot, which showcases Kashinath's eye for detail. Overall the setting, music, the actors really help bring out the sinister undercurrent running throughout the movie which is engaging. The final reveal may fail to do justice to the initial buildup which is expected, but the technical ability with which the story is told making use if its music, artistic use of camera work makes this one a quality film of its era.
Aalemane - Thriller - 3/5
Another suspense thriller movie starring Suresh heblikar, This movie borrows a lot of from Aparichita & builds on it with an addition of social commentary. Suresh heblikar is a teacher, who visits the village at the same time as a villager Bhaira is released from police. Bhaira, who was interrogated by police for his involvement in his wife honni's disappearance/murder is released due to lack of evidence. Both Bhaira & Suresh heblkar forms an alliance due to their common hate for village chief & they investigate the honni's death. Just like Aparichita, strength of Aalemane, lies in its music & the microcosm of a village setting. The titular Aalemane, an abandoned factory, is shown as haunted place which the local villagers fear, which is a throwback to Aparichita. Although as a horror movie it falls short with scare, but can see influence of this movie & Aparichita in "Shh" which is also a celebrated horrothriller movie, which also features Suresh heblikar, nice to see how these older thrillers influenced Upendra's Shh. The reveal at the end appears to be multilayered & comes out as quite a shock to the viewer. As the movie twists & turns in its final 20 minutes from one reveal to another & rewards viewer for sticking with the movie despite of some uninspired acting from its supporting characters.
Aaguntaka - Thriller - 1/5
Expecting another thriller from Suresh heblikar, Aaguntaka disappoints a lot. Only positive i can take from the movie is Suresh heblikar's acting & his diction of kannada which is very pleasant to hear. Devaraj as antagonist appears to be a caricature & Vanitha vasu in lead showcases her limited acting capability. For a suspense thriller movie rarely gets going after the initial murder scene which seems to be inspired staring out of italian giallo films. However the promise of a tense thriller suddenly loses its steam as it derails to showcase relationship between Vanitha vasu & suresh heblikar. By the time we hit the plot its too late. It fails to bank on thriller aspects seen in Aaalemane & Aparichita. Whole movie seems like a poor reason to show Yaana, which is breathtakingly good place, on screen.
Belli modagalu - Musical/Drama - 3/5
Belli modagalu is a musical hit from the 90s. This movie needs to be watched just to experience its brillant album of songs. Each song is better than the previous one with meaningful lyrics. Scored my Upendra kumar its songs are its strength. Starring Doddanna, Jayanti, Malashri & Ramesh in lead roles. Doddanna, who is usually shown in villainous roles, steals the scene here as an aging & vulnerable village chief. Doddanna, who has disowned his son, is expecting to reconcile with his son on his return to home after 18 years on occasion of a marriage. However, instead of his son & daughter in law, he is visited by Malashree, his grand daughter. Then movie chugs along as Malashree born in america tries to gain Doddanna's trust through her knowledge of indian culture, bharatnatyam & her ability to recite sanskrit verses with great ease. All this is a little hard to digest in current trends, but as a product of its time movie tries hard to show Malashree as a sanskaari girl from States who demands respect & love. Once you get past this dated plot material, you will be treated with some amazing songs & acting prowess of Malashree, Doddanna & Jayanti. Ramesh in a minor role does what he can with his limited material. Doddanna in a different role steals the movie alongside effortlessly talented & beautiful Malashree. Malashree shows why she is regarded as one of the best actress of her time, as she sizzles in first half as a mercurial granddaugther, she flexes her muscle in second half as a distraught granddaughter unable to cope up with the lies she has told to keep her grandparents happy. Doddanna & Jayanti are adorable as grandparents. Overall with some fresh direction, amazing songs, brilliant acting this movie rightly deserves its spot as a musical blockbuster if one can look past dated plot points which appears a bit cringeworthy in its treatment. Also, its weird that everyone hangs on to Malashree's dad's return in movie but his wife is rarely mentioned which is a very odd take.
Idhu Saadhya - Slasher - 5/5
With a runtime of under 100 minutes, this movies packs a powerful punch. Also in record books as movie shot in under 48 hours, this movie is a forgotten milestone in kannada cinema. Directed by Dinesh baboo, starring who's who of the kannada industry, including juggernauts like Shankar nag, Anant nag, Ramesh, Prabhakar, Srinath, Revathi, Srividya, Devaraj, Mahalakshmi, Raghu, Avinash, Doddanna, Ramesh bhat, Disco shanti among its wide array of casts. Each cast member is a well known face in industry & this decision to not settle of lesser known supporting cast shows in the movie as the quality remains top notch in every scene. Its a slasher movie which takes over the course of a night in a locked theater where artists are in for an overnight rehearsal of their play. A Plot borrowed from Michele Soavi's Stagefright. The camaraderie between the characters fills the major part of first half of the movie & its a delight to watch. Shankar nag as a dictatorial director, Anant nag as a well meaning struggling writer, Devaraj & Srinath as scared actors in for paycheck steals the show. Its a delight to watch Anant nag & Shankar nag banter playfully as "cute as a button" Kavya giggles watching them. This adds a great deal as once these characters are fleshed out in this manner & as a viewer you begin to relate to them, which makes the second half much more brutal. Every kill strikes a chord as one by one the killer picks em in the locked theater. Kills are gory for its time & use of the theater & its space is done with a commanding hand by Dinesh baboo. Raghu as a demented killer is nightmarish on screen & is picture perfect as a killer. I cant explain how well made this movie is, its delightfully funny at the start as you cant help but feel cosy with the actors in their rehearsal & then movie punches you in gut as the resulting carnage makes you sick seeing your favorite actors/characters succumb to their fate. Please do watch it appreciate this masterpiece & appreciate the novel effort & experimentation phase of kannada cinema which sadly ended abruptly with Shankar nag's demise. A must watch movie.
Alidu Ulidavaru - Mystery/Horror - 2/5
Inspired from Stephen king's 1408, both an excellent movie & a short story, Alidu ulidavaru is a weak interpretation of the same. Promising a clever horror movie, it starts with a journalist who tries to deal with superstition with a scientific temper & reason, which is well established in the initial 15 mins of movie as he is recently finished his 99th episode & looks for his 100th. However, the movie goes on hammering on this aspect for the next one hour as we are treated to half assed debates, TRP hungry news channels & its interworking politics. This weird choice to deride the media for its recklessness & hammer the fact that the lead is a rationalist, instead of diving straight into plot makes it a painful watch, as you wait & wait for the 100th episode of journo's TV show. As the 100th episode happens only the tough willed viewer will remain interested in the movie. The last 30 mins of the movie covers everything, as the CGI takes over with its haunting visuals, which are good on its own, but too late in the movie to have any impact. The mystery behind the horror is quickly revealed as soon as it happens with little to zero build up of any tension. Movie tries too hard to be more than a horror movie & fails at everything. If interested, you can just watch last 30mins of the movie & trust me you wont miss anything. Its basically a short movie stretched to its limits with unnecessary add ons. A waste of juicy horror plot of 1408 in an incoherent mess of a movie.

2020.06.08 09:03 HeadToToes Have been watching old kannada movies in lockdown as I started to miss going out in the city & here are my reviews or opinions on movies I watched. - part 3

Ganda mane makkalu - Comedy - 2.5/5
Supposed to be a comedy film, this movie starts out looking at issues of a lower middle class family with its breezy comic scenarios. Starring Srinath, Dwarakish, Ramesh in lead roles it looks at a vataara (colony) which is owned by an extremely insensitive owner in Satyabhama. Clashes between owner & a self righteous, srinath escalates from minor tussles in the beginning to a full blown fight. Movie takes a dark turn towards the end as it switches genre from Comedy to Melodrama quickly & aims to target the tear ducts of its viewers by the end. Srinath, who has lived in a colony, decides to build his own house & move out after his eventful face-off with the owner, this faceoff is done so masterfully that its sad the rest of the movie falls apart from this high point. This change suddenly causes rift within the family between parents & kids, then it veers towards melodrama with over the top scenes & events that plans to tug at your heart. Movie tries a lot in its runtime, as it tries to be a comedy & then a social commentary, to a melodrama, however it fails to do anything right as it fails to grasp the core values of its commentary & falls flat as a forgettable try hard of a movie.
Rama rama re - Thriller - 4/5
Rama rama re is a pleasant surprise of a movie. With no notable stars in its starcast this excellent movie sadly didn't get the limelight that it deserved. Movie starts as a road trip of an older man who takes out his jeep to attend to his last day at work. In this trip he meets a drifter who is a wanted death row criminal on the run from police fearing for his life. This forms the core of the story as they travel together each doubting the other mainly due to the bait of cash price that will be awarded to anyone who can find the criminal. Their journey then mingles with lovers on the run, to a bunch of villagers on hunt for these lovers & a pregnant woman stranded by roadside. All these turns of events takes a toll an the driver & criminal, as they start to introspect about their lives. Movie has wonderful pacing & never lags. The locations are scenic & helps highlight the desolation of the situation. The dialogues are sharp & to the point & characters arcs mingles with each other with an ease. The movie ends on a strong note & the song "helu krishna" plays a vital role in the nature of this movie & helps understand the philosophy & theme. A must watch gem.
Aparichita - Suspense/Thriller - 3.5/5

2019.05.14 15:40 Th3HarryHorrorShow Wowwww

Our preparations were quite complete by nightfall, and we all took up our appointed positions. Nothing happened until about nine o'clock, when to my great satisfaction the intense stillness was suddenly broken by the noise of the door of the trap clattering down. "At last," I thought, "one at least of the brutes is done for." But the sequel was an ignominious one. The bait-sepoys had a lamp burning inside their part of the cage, and were each armed with a Martini rifle, with plenty of ammunition. They had also been given strict orders to shoot at once if a lion should enter the trap. Instead of doing so, however, they were so terrified when he rushed in and began to lash himself madly against the bars of the cage, that they completely lost their heads and were actually too unnerved to fire. Not for some minutes—not, indeed, until Mr. Farquhar, whose post was close by, shouted at them and cheered them on—did they at all recover themselves. Then when at last they did begin to fire, they fired with a vengeance—anywhere, anyhow. Whitehead and I were at right angles to the direction in which they should have shot, and yet their bullets came whizzing all round us. Altogether they fired over a score of shots, and in the end succeeded only in blowing away one of the bars of the door, thus allowing our prize to make good his escape. How they failed to kill him several times over is, and always will be, a complete mystery to me, as they could have put the muzzles of their rifles absolutely touching his body. There was, indeed, some blood scattered about the trap, but it was small consolation to know that the brute, whose capture and death seemed so certain, had only been slightly wounded. Still we were not unduly dejected, and when morning came, a hunt was at once arranged. Accordingly we spent the greater part of the day on our hands and knees following the lions through the dense thickets of thorny jungle, but though we heard their growls from time to time, we never succeeded in actually coming up with them. Of the whole party, only Farquhar managed to catch a momentary glimpse of one as it bounded over a bush. Two days more were spent in the same manner, and with equal unsuccess; and then Farquhar and his sepoys were obliged to return to the coast. Mr. Whitehead also departed for his district, and once again I was left alone with the man-eaters.
CHAPTER VIII
THE DEATH OF THE FIRST MAN-EATER
A day or two after the departure of my allies, as I was leaving my boma soon after dawn on December 9, I saw a Swahili running excitedly towards me, shouting out "Simba! Simba!" ("Lion! Lion!"), and every now and again looking behind him as he ran. On questioning him I found that the lions had tried to snatch a man from the camp by the river, but being foiled in this had seized and killed one of the donkeys, and were at that moment busy devouring it not far off. Now was my chance. I rushed for the heavy rifle which Farquhar had kindly left with me for use in case an opportunity such as this should arise, and, led by the Swahili, I started most carefully to stalk the lions, who, I devoutly hoped, were confining their attention strictly to their meal. I was getting on splendidly, and could just make out the outline of one of them through the dense bush, when unfortunately my guide snapped a rotten branch. The wily beast heard the noise, growled his defiance, and disappeared in a moment into a patch of even thicker jungle close by. In desperation at the thought of his escaping me once again, I crept hurriedly back to the camp, summoned the available workmen and told them to bring all the tom-toms, tin cans, and other noisy instruments of any kind that could be found. As quickly as possible I posted them in a half-circle round the thicket, and gave the head jemadar instructions to start a simultaneous beating of the tom-toms and cans as soon as he judged that I had had time to get round to the other side. I then crept round by myself and soon found a good position and one which the lion was most likely to retreat past, as it was in the middle of a broad animal path leading straight from the place where he was concealed. I lay down behind a small ant hill, and waited expectantly. Very soon I heard a tremendous din being raised by the advancing line of coolies, and almost immediately, to my intense joy, out into the open path stepped a huge maneless lion. It was the first occasion during all these trying months upon which I had had a fair chance at one of these brutes, and my satisfaction at the prospect of bagging him was unbounded. Slowly he advanced along the path, stopping every few seconds to look round. I was only partially concealed from view, and if his attention had not been so fully occupied by the noise behind him, he must have observed me. As he was oblivious to my presence, however, I let him approach to within about fifteen yards of me, and then covered him with my rifle. The moment I moved to do this, he caught sight of me, and seemed much astonished at my sudden appearance, for he stuck his forefeet into the ground, threw himself back on his haunches and growled savagely. As I covered his brain with my rifle, I felt that at last I had him absolutely at my mercy, but .... never trust an untried weapon! I pulled the trigger, and to my horror heard the dull snap that tells of a misfire. Worse was to follow. I was so taken aback and disconcerted by this untoward accident that I entirely forgot to fire the left barrel, and lowered the rifle from my shoulder with the intention of reloading—if I should be given time. Fortunately for me, the lion was so distracted by the terrific din and uproar of the coolies behind him that instead of springing on me, as might have been expected, he bounded aside into the jungle again. By this time I had collected my wits, and just as he jumped I let him have the left barrel. An answering angry growl told me that he had been hit; but nevertheless he succeeded once more in getting clear away, for although I tracked him for some little distance, I eventually lost his trail in a rocky patch of ground. Bitterly did I anathematise the hour in which I had relied on a borrowed weapon, and in my disappointment and vexation I abused owner, maker, and rifle with fine impartiality. On extracting the unexploded cartridge, I found that the needle had not struck home, the cap being only slightly dented; so that the whole fault did indeed lie with the rifle, which I later returned to Farquhar with polite compliments. Seriously, however, my continued ill-luck was most exasperating; and the result was that the Indians were more than ever confirmed in their belief that the lions were really evil spirits, proof against mortal weapons. Certainly, they did seem to bear charmed lives. After this dismal failure there was, of course, nothing to do but to return to camp. Before doing so, however, I proceeded to view the dead donkey, which I found to have been only slightly devoured it the quarters. It is a curious fact that lions always begin at the tail of their prey and eat upwards towards the head. As their meal had thus been interrupted evidently at the very beginning, I felt pretty sure that one or other of the brutes would return to the carcase at nightfall. Accordingly, as there was no tree of any kind close at hand, I had a staging erected some ten feet away from the body. This machan was about twelve feet high and was composed of four poles stuck into the ground and inclined towards each other at the top, where a plank was lashed to serve as a seat. Further, as the nights were still pitch dark, I had the donkey's carcase secured by strong wires to a neighbouring stump, so that the lions might not be able to drag it away before I could get a shot at them. At sundown, therefore, I took up my position on my airy perch, and much to the disgust of my gun-bearer, Mahina, I decided to go alone. I would gladly have taken him with me, indeed, but he had a bad cough, and I was afraid lest he should make any involuntary noise or movement which might spoil all. Darkness fell almost immediately, and everything became extraordinarily still. The silence of an African jungle on a dark night needs to be experienced to be realised; it is most impressive, especially when one is absolutely alone and isolated from one's fellow creatures, as I was then. The solitude and stillness, and the purpose of my vigil, all had their effect on me, and from a condition of strained expectancy I gradually fell into a dreamy mood which harmonised well with my surroundings. Suddenly I was startled out of my reverie by the snapping of a twig: and, straining my ears for a further sound, I fancied I could hear the rustling of a large body forcing its way through the bush. "The man-eater," I thought to myself; "surely to-night my luck will change and I shall bag one of the brutes." Profound silence again succeeded; I sat on my eyrie like a statue, every nerve tense with excitement. Very soon, however, all doubt as to the presence of the lion was dispelled. A deep long-drawn sigh—sure sign of hunger—came up from the bushes, and the rustling commenced again as he cautiously advanced. In a moment or two a sudden stop, followed by an angry growl, told me that my presence had been noticed; and I began to fear that disappointment awaited me once more. But no; matters quickly took an unexpected turn. The hunter became the hunted; and instead of either making off or coming for the bait prepared for him, the lion began stealthily to stalk me! For about two hours he horrified me by slowly creeping round and round my crazy structure, gradually edging his way nearer and nearer. Every moment I expected him to rush it; and the staging had not been constructed with an eye to such a possibility. If one of the rather flimsy poles should break, or if the lion could spring the twelve feet which separated me from the ground ... the thought was scarcely a pleasant one. I began to feel distinctly "creepy," and heartily repented my folly in having placed myself in such a dangerous position. I kept perfectly still, however, hardly daring even to blink my eyes: but the long-continued strain was telling on my nerves, and my feelings may be better imagined than described when about midnight suddenly something came flop and struck me on the back of the head. For a moment I was so terrified that I nearly fell off the plank, as I thought that the lion had sprung on me from behind. Regaining my senses in a second or two, I realised that I had been hit by nothing more formidable than an owl, which had doubtless mistaken me for the branch of a tree—not a very alarming thing to happen in ordinary circumstances, I admit, but coming at the time it did, it almost paralysed me. The involuntary start which I could not help giving was immediately answered by a sinister growl from below. After this I again kept as still as I could, though absolutely trembling with excitement; and in a short while I heard the lion begin to creep stealthily towards me. I could barely make out his form as he crouched among the whitish undergrowth; but I saw enough for my purpose, and before he could come any nearer, I took careful aim and pulled the trigger. The sound of the shot was at once followed by a most terrific roar, and then I could hear him leaping about in all directions. I was no longer able to see him, however, as his first bound had taken him into the thick bush; but to make assurance doubly sure, I kept blazing away in the direction in which I heard him plunging about. At length came a series of mighty groans, gradually subsiding into deep sighs, and finally ceasing altogether; and I felt convinced that one of the "devils" who had so long harried us would trouble us no more. As soon as I ceased firing, a tumult of inquiring voices was borne across the dark jungle from the men in camp about a quarter of a mile away. I shouted back that I was safe and sound, and that one of the lions was dead: whereupon such a mighty cheer went up from all the camps as must have astonished the denizens of the jungle for miles around. Shortly I saw scores of lights twinkling through the bushes: every man in camp turned out, and with tom-toms beating and horns blowing came running to the scene. They surrounded my eyrie, and to my amazement prostrated themselves on the ground before me, saluting me with cries of "Mabarak! Mabarak!" which I believe means "blessed one" or "saviour." All the same, I refused to allow any search to be made that night for the body of the lion, in case his companion might be close by; besides, it was possible that he might be still alive, and capable of making a last spring. Accordingly we all returned in triumph to the camp, where great rejoicings were kept up for the remainder of the night, the Swahili and other African natives celebrating the occasion by an especially wild and savage dance. For my part, I anxiously awaited the dawn; and even before it was thoroughly light I was on my way to the eventful spot, as I could not completely persuade myself that even yet the "devil" might not have eluded me in some uncanny and mysterious way. Happily my fears proved groundless, and I was relieved to find that my luck—after playing me so many exasperating tricks—had really turned at last. I had scarcely traced the blood for more than a few paces when, on rounding a bush, I was startled to see a huge lion right in front of me, seemingly alive and crouching for a spring. On looking closer, however, I satisfied myself that he was really and truly stone-dead, whereupon my followers crowded round, laughed and danced and shouted with joy like children, and bore me in triumph shoulder-high round the dead body. These thanksgiving ceremonies being over, I examined the body and found that two bullets had taken effect—one close behind the left shoulder, evidently penetrating the heart, and the other in the off hind leg. The prize was indeed one to be proud of; his length from tip of nose to tip of tail was nine feet eight inches, he stood three feet nine inches high, and it took eight men to carry him back to camp. The only blemish was that the skin was much scored by the boma thorns through which he had so often forced his way in carrying off his victims. The news of the death of one of the notorious man-eaters soon spread far and wide over the country: telegrams of congratulation came pouring in, and scores of people flocked from up and down the railway to see the skin for themselves.
CHAPTER IX
THE DEATH OF THE SECOND MAN-EATER
It must not be imagined that with the death of this lion our troubles at Tsavo were at an end; his companion was still at large, and very soon began to make us unpleasantly aware of the fact. Only a few nights elapsed before he made an attempt to get at the Permanent Way Inspector, climbing up the steps of his bungalow and prowling round the verandah. The Inspector, hearing the noise and thinking it was a drunken coolie, shouted angrily "Go away!" but, fortunately for him, did not attempt to come out or to open the door. Thus disappointed in his attempt to obtain a meal of human flesh, the lion seized a couple of the Inspector's goats and devoured them there and then. On hearing of this occurrence, I determined to sit up the next night near the Inspector's bungalow. Fortunately there was a vacant iron shanty close at hand, with a convenient loophole in it for firing from; and outside this I placed three full-grown goats as bait, tying them to a half-length of rail, weighing about 250 lbs. The night passed uneventfully until just before daybreak, when at last the lion turned up, pounced on one of the goats and made off with it, at the same time dragging away the others, rail and all. I fired several shots in his direction, but it was pitch dark and quite impossible to see anything, so I only succeeded in hitting one of the goats. I often longed for a flash-light on such occasions. Next morning I started off in pursuit and was joined by some others from the camp. I found that the trail of the goats and rail was easily followed, and we soon came up, about a quarter of a mile away, to where the lion was still busy at his meal. He was concealed in some thick bush and growled angrily on hearing our approach; finally, as we got closer, he suddenly made a charge, rushing through the bushes at a great pace. In an instant, every man of the party scrambled hastily up the nearest tree, with the exception of one of my assistants, Mr. Winkler, who stood steadily by me throughout. The brute, however, did not press his charge home: and on throwing stones into the bushes where we had last seen him, we guessed by the silence that he had slunk off. We therefore advanced cautiously, and on getting up to the place discovered that he had indeed escaped us, leaving two off the goats scarcely touched. Thinking that in all probability the lion would return as usual to finish his meal, I had a very strong scaffolding put up a few feet away from the dead goats, and took up my position on it before dark. On this occasion I brought my gun-bearer, Mahina, to take a turn at watching, as I was by this time worn out for want of sleep, having spent so many nights on the look-out. I was just dozing off comfortably when suddenly I felt my arm seized, and on looking up saw Mahina pointing in the direction of the goats. "Sher!" ("Lion!") was all he whispered. I grasped my double smooth-bore, which, I had charged with slug, and waited patiently. In a few moments I was rewarded, for as I watched the spot where I expected the lion to appear, there was a rustling among the bushes and I saw him stealthily emerge into the open and pass almost directly beneath us. I fired both barrels practically together into his shoulder, and to my joy could see him go down under the force of the blow. Quickly I reached for the magazine rifle, but before I could use it, he was out of sight among the bushes, and I had to fire after him quite at random. Nevertheless I was confident of getting him in the morning, and accordingly set out as soon as it was light. For over a mile there was no difficulty in following the blood-trail, and as he had rested several times I felt sure that he had been badly wounded. In the end, however, my hunt proved fruitless, for after a time the traces of blood ceased and the surface of the ground became rocky, so that I was no longer able to follow the spoor. About this time Sir Guilford Molesworth, K.C.I.E., late Consulting Engineer to the Government of India for State Railways, passed through Tsavo on a tour of inspection on behalf of the Foreign Office. After examining the bridge and other works and expressing his satisfaction, he took a number of photographs, one or two of which he has kindly allowed me to reproduce in this book. He thoroughly sympathised with us in all the trials we had endured from the man-eaters, and was delighted that one at least was dead. When he asked me if I expected to get the second lion soon, I well remember his half-doubting smile as I rather too confidently asserted that I hoped to bag him also in the course of a few days. As it happened, there was no sign of our enemy for about ten days after this, and we began to hope that he had died of his wounds in the bush. All the same we still took every precaution at night, and it was fortunate that we did so, as otherwise at least one more victim would have been added to the list. For on the night of December 27, I was suddenly aroused by terrified shouts from my trolley men, who slept in a tree close outside my boma, to the effect that a lion was trying to get at them. It would have been madness to have gone out, as the moon was hidden by dense clouds and it was absolutely impossible to see anything more than a yard in front of one; so all I could do was to fire off a few rounds just to frighten the brute away. This apparently had the desired effect, for the men were not further molested that night; but the man-eater had evidently prowled about for some time, for we found in the morning that he had gone right into every one of their tents, and round the tree was a regular ring of his footmarks. The following evening I took up my position in this same tree, in the hope that he would make another attempt. The night began badly, as, while climbing up to my perch I very nearly put my hand on a venomous snake which was lying coiled round one of the branches. As may be imagined, I came down again very quickly, but one of my men managed to despatch it with a long pole. Fortunately the night was clear and cloudless, and the moon made every thing almost as bright as day. I kept watch until about 2 a.m., when I roused Mahina to take his turn. For about an hour I slept peacefully with my back to the tree, and then woke suddenly with an uncanny feeling that something was wrong. Mahina, however, was on the alert, and had seen nothing; and although I looked carefully round us on all sides, I too could discover nothing unusual. Only half satisfied, I was about to lie back again, when I fancied I saw something move a little way off among the low bushes. On gazing intently at the spot for a few seconds, I found I was not mistaken. It was the man-eater, cautiously stalking us. The ground was fairly open round our tree, with only a small bush every here and there; and from our position it was a most fascinating sight to watch this great brute stealing stealthily round us, taking advantage of every bit of cover as he came. His skill showed that he was an old hand at the terrible game of man-hunting: so I determined to run no undue risk of losing him this time. I accordingly waited until he got quite close—about twenty yards away—and then fired my .303 at his chest. I heard the bullet strike him, but unfortunately it had no knockdown effect, for with a fierce growl he turned and made off with great long bounds. Before he disappeared from sight, however, I managed to have three more shots at him from the magazine rifle, and another growl told me that the last of these had also taken effect. We awaited daylight with impatience, and at the first glimmer of dawn we set out to hunt him down. I took a native tracker with me, so that I was free to keep a good look-out, while Mahina followed immediately behind with a Martini carbine. Splashes of blood being plentiful, we were able to get along quickly; and we had not proceeded more than a quarter of a mile through the jungle when suddenly a fierce warning growl was heard right in front of us. Looking cautiously through the bushes, I could see the man-eater glaring out in our direction, and showing his tusks in an angry snarl. I at once took careful aim and fired. Instantly he sprang out and made a most determined charge down on us. I fired again and knocked him over; but in a second he was up once more and coming for me as fast as he could in his crippled condition. A third shot had no apparent effect, so I put out my hand for the Martini, hoping to stop him with it. To my dismay, however, it was not there. The terror of the sudden charge had proved too much for Mahina, and both he and the carbine were by this time well on their way up a tree. In the circumstances there was nothing to do but follow suit, which I did without loss of time: and but for the fact that one of my shots had broken a hind leg, the brute would most certainly have had me. Even as it was, I had barely time to swing myself up out of his reach before he arrived at the foot of the tree. When the lion found he was too late, he started to limp back to the thicket; but by this time I had seized the carbine from Mahina, and the first shot I fired from it seemed to give him his quietus, for he fell over and lay motionless. Rather foolishly, I at once scrambled down from the tree and walked up towards him. To my surprise and no little alarm he jumped up and attempted another charge. This time, however, a Martini bullet in the chest and another in the head finished him for good and all; he dropped in his tracks not five yards away from me, and died gamely, biting savagely at a branch which had fallen to the ground. By this time all the workmen in camp, attracted by the sound of the firing, had arrived on the scene, and so great was their resentment against the brute who had killed such numbers of their comrades that it was only with the greatest difficulty that I could restrain them from tearing the dead body to pieces. Eventually, amid the wild rejoicings of the natives and coolies, I had the lion carried to my boma, which was close at hand. On examination we found no less than six bullet holes in the body, and embedded only a little way in the flesh of the back was the slug which I had fired into him from the scaffolding about ten days previously. He measured nine feet six inches from tip of nose to tip of tail, and stood three feet eleven and a half inches high; but, as in the case of his companion, the skin was disfigured by being deeply scored all over by the boma thorns. The news of the death of the second "devil" soon spread far and wide over the country, and natives actually travelled from up and down the line to have a look at my trophies and at the "devil-killer", as they called me. Best of all, the coolies who had absconded came flocking back to Tsavo, and much to my relief work was resumed and we were never again troubled by man-eaters. It was amusing, indeed, to notice the change which took place in the attitude of the workmen towards me after I had killed the two lions. Instead of wishing to murder me, as they once did, they could not now do enough for me, and as a token of their gratitude they presented me with a beautiful silver bowl, as well as with a long poem written in Hindustani describing all our trials and my ultimate victory. As the poem relates our troubles in somewhat quaint and biblical language, I have given a translation of it in the appendix. The bowl I shall always consider my most highly prized and hardest won trophy. The inscription on it reads as follows:—
SIR,—We, your Overseer, Timekeepers, Mistaris and Workmen, present you with this bowl as a token of our gratitude to you for your bravery in killing two man-eating lions at great risk to your own life, thereby saving us from the fate of being devoured by these terrible monsters who nightly broke into our tents and took our fellow-workers from our side. In presenting you with this bowl, we all add our prayers for your long life, happiness and prosperity. We shall ever remain, Sir, Your grateful servants,
Baboo PURSHOTAM HURJEE PURMAR, Overseer and Clerk of Works, on behalf of your Workmen. Dated at Tsavo, January 30, 1899.
Before I leave the subject of "the man-eaters of Tsavo," it may be of interest to mention that these two lions possess the distinction, probably unique among wild animals, of having been specifically referred to in the House of Lords by the Prime Minister of the day. Speaking of the difficulties which had been encountered in the construction of the Uganda Railway, the late Lord Salisbury said:— "The whole of the works were put a stop to for three weeks because a party of man-eating lions appeared in the locality and conceived a most unfortunate taste for our porters. At last the labourers entirely declined to go on unless they were guarded by an iron entrenchment. Of course it is difficult to work a railway under these conditions, and until we found an enthusiastic sportsman to get rid of these lions, our enterprise was seriously hindered." Also, The Spectator of March 3, 1900, had an article entitled "The Lions that Stopped the Railway," from which the following extracts are taken:— "The parallel to the story of the lions which stopped the rebuilding of Samaria must occur to everyone, and if the Samaritans had quarter as good cause for their fears as had the railway coolies, their wish to propitiate the local deities is easily understood. If the whole body of lion anecdote, from the days of the Assyrian Kings till the last year of the nineteenth century, were collated and brought together, it would not equal in tragedy or atrocity, in savageness or in sheer insolent contempt for man, armed or unarmed, white or black, the story of these two beasts. "To what a distance the whole story carries us back, and how impossible it becomes to account for the survival of primitive man against this kind of foe! For fire—which has hitherto been regarded as his main safeguard against the carnivora—these cared nothing. It is curious that the Tsavo lions were not killed by poison, for strychnine is easily used, and with effect. (I may mention that poison was tried, but without effect. The poisoned carcases of transport animals which had died from the bite of the tsetse fly were placed in likely spots, but the wily man-eaters would not touch them, and much preferred live men to dead donkeys.) Poison may have been used early in the history of man, for its powers are employed with strange skill by the men in the tropical forest, both in American and West Central Africa. But there is no evidence that the old inhabitants of Europe, or of Assyria or Asia Minor, ever killed lions or wolves by this means. They looked to the King or chief, or some champion, to kill these monsters for them. It was not the sport but the duty of. Kings, and was in itself a title to be a ruler of men. Theseus, who cleared the roads of beasts and robbers; Hercules, the lion killer; St. George, the dragon-slayer, and all the rest of their class owed to this their everlasting fame. From the story of the Tsavo River we can appreciate their services to man even at this distance of time. When the jungle twinkled with hundreds of lamps, as the shout went on from camp to camp that the first lion was dead, as the hurrying crowds fell prostrate in the midnight forest, laying their heads on his feet, and the Africans danced savage and ceremonial dances of thanksgiving, Mr. Patterson must have realised in no common way what it was to have been a hero and deliverer in the days when man was not yet undisputed lord of the creation, and might pass at any moment under the savage dominion of the beasts." Well had the two man-eaters earned all this fame; they had devoured between them no less than twenty-eight Indian coolies, in addition to scores of unfortunate African natives of whom no official record was kept.
· The threat over, work on the bridge began once again. It was completed in February. Patterson kept the lions' skins and skulls (like all male lions in the region, they lacked the normal manes characteristic of the kings of beasts) and in 1907, he wrote a bestselling book about the attacks, "The Man-Eaters of Tsavo." A quarter-century later the skins and bones were sold to the Field Museum, where they were stuffed, mounted and placed on display, where they remain.

2016.04.10 17:15 Josetheone1 [Serious] How is Online Dating in the UK for you?

I'm wondering if the experiences I've had through online dating in the UK is universal and I want to hear everyone's experiences.
I'm bisexual, so I've experienced both ends of the spectrum of dating males and females but I've also lived in North America (Nevada and parts of Canada) for periods of my life and dated there.
From my experience in the UK, it's very hard to actually get people to commit to a physical date? I've talked to loads of women and even more guys who seem really interested but are hesitant to exchange numbers and actually meet. While I was dating in the US/CAN this wasn't a problem, people often just say Hi, followed by their number and you begin texting them.
For this reason I've had a lot more dates in the US/CAN something like 3x more. I've had one UK partner and it wasn't due to online dating, and I've had maybe 4 encounters over 3 years via online dating, using tinder, grindr, okcupid, baboo and facebook i guess.
I've pretty much given up with trying to find a relationship via online dating while in the UK but what have you all experienced?

2015.10.14 10:06 Trogdom Find me an anime to watch and receive 'The Wolf Among Us' on Steam

Edit 2: Once again thanks to everyone for their recommendations. My first place pick was anonymepelle's recommendation of Michiko & Hatchin started strong and kept going great. He/she chose to receive a different game on steam other than The Wolf Among Us, so second place pick will be receiving that one. My second place pick was a lot harder to choose from since there was so many great anime recommendations. I ended up deciding on AngryEgroll's recommendation of Kyoukai no Kanata. Hilarious anime with some decent action in it.
Thank you all for your suggestions and nearly every recommendation is now on my to watch list.
Edit: I have a great list ahead of me of anime to check out, and already checked out the majority of them and narrowing it down. If you wanna submit any further recommendations, will definitely check them out.
Long read through for a simple recommendation, but anyone that can recommend me an anime that I find myself to enjoy I'll gift them 'The Wolf Among Us' on Steam, if you win I'll message you (don't put your Steam account in the thread for your sake). I've been watching so many anime lately and haven't found joy in any of them. Help me find something I like. It might take me a day or so to pick a winner if anyone does win (any recommendations I'll give at least an episodes watch.) If you look over my favorites/ loved, I particularly like action anime with good combat, but comedy does place highly with me also. Also, unless it is truly amazing, I dislike slice of life/ fan- service anime's.
My all time favorites:
Cowboy Bebop (classic, first anime I ever watched on Toonami, amazing in every way)
Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood (the action and story telling, superb, amazing)
Dragon Ball Z (Cell Saga was my favorite, Buu I hated during the 2nd half of it, checked out the new Dragon Ball Super, seen the movies already, not impressed)
Code Geass (amazing storytelling, not a huge fan of mecha, but the ability to keep me on the edge of my seat every episode was amazing)
Attack on Titan (the overwhelming sense of despair and fighting against lost odds, action was great, but the 'sense' of the environment is what really got me)
Baccano (never laughed so hard, so many twists, so many hilarious interactions, so much character depth, great action/ combat)
Black Lagoon (great laughs, character progression, especially after first season)
Stein's Gate (the story, character progression, setting, so much great about this anime)
Death Note (that story, same with Code Geass, kept me on the edge of my seat the entire series)
Anime's that I loved:
Kenechi Mightiest Disciple (amazing combat, very funny)
Kill la Kill (didn't like all the fan-service, but was very hilarious)
Akemi ga Kill (good action, plot twist, main characters........ yea, great anime)
Berserk (only watched the original ?first arc? great story-telling/ character progression
Naruto (yea, yea.... great combat, decent character progression, gets awful with fillers after episode 110ish)
Samurai Champloo (very fun, great combat, many laughs)
Angel Beats! (very funny, very funny, yea... just very funny)
Maria Nikki (plot twist, comedy, decent action, truly insane girl, loved it)
Mushi-Shi (every episode is beautiful)
Space Dandy (screw all yall, I loved it)
Samurai 7 (amazing combat, story, one of my first anime's, love it)
Great Teach Onizuka (funny, and a very feel good anime)
Anime's I hated or couldn't get past the first couple of episodes:
Planetes, Fairy Tail, Date a Live, .hack, Neon Genesis Evangelion (yea yea no hate, I think the hype going into it is what ruined it for me), Ghost in the Shell
Anime's I've watched but didn't make it into my all time favorites but should still be mentioned:
Another, Gintama, Inuyasha, Bleach, Gundam (almost all of them) (although Gunadm: Seed was good), Durrara, Dragonball, Fist of the North Star, Naruto Shippuden, Gurren Lagann (yea, yea no hate), Psycho-Pass, Vision of Escaflowne, Ergo Proxy, Blood+, Hunter x Hunter, BoBaBoBabo Baboo (or however it is called), Monster, Hellsing (and Ultimate), One Piece, Rurouni Kenshin, Trigun, Darker than Black, Soul Eater, Sword Art Online, FLCL, Gungrave, Wolf's Rain, Basilisk, Fate/Zero, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, High School DxD (yea, yea, very funny anime), Deadman Wonderland, Tenchi Muyo, Log Horizon, Gantz, Btooom!, Desert Punk, The Big O, Ninja Scroll, Afro Samurai, Outlaw Star, Shin Chan, Overlord, Tokyo Ghoul, No Game No Life, Parasyte, Trigun, Noragami, Elfen Lied (loved it, but not one of my favorites), Yu Yu Hakisho, Claymore, Monster, Darker Than Black, Noragami,

2013.12.11 23:24 tabledresser [Table] IAmA: I'm Jean Schulz. My husband drew the PEANUTS comic strip for 50 years and I'm happy to talk with you and take your questions.

Questions Answers
I'm wondering why Camp Snoopy at the Mall of America couldn't stay that way when your husband passed. Was there some agreement that ended due to his passing? I loved that place. Seeing the characters and all. You know, I'm going to clip that out and send that to the people at Mall of America because it was not a decision in their favor. But these are business deals that it's just difficult to even describe. And I've actually forgotten what happened, but typical american business deals. It had nothing to do with him passing, it really had to do more with contractual terms and my husband never owned the copyright to his comic strip, it was owned through United Media, but there was a contract for X number of years with Camp Snoopy and it's so convoluted I can't even remember. So they probably were unhappy that they did let it go, but it's big American business these days.
What was your favorite thing about your husband? Well I think I have to say that he was SO complimentary and so loving to me. it didn't matter what I did - if I found him at the office, that evening he would say "I just loved hearing your voice on the telephone today" and then he would say "every time you walk into the room I fall in love with you again." I'd cook an ordinary dinner and he would say "Thank you so much."
In the back of my mind I would think "Did he learn that somewhere? Is he just saying that because he read somewhere to compliment your wife once a day to have a happy marriage?"
But he was so sweet. And it was so wonderful to feel that adored.
And I can still feel that from him.
He also helps me find things. I would always lose things, and would think "Sparky will help me find it." And he has. So he's still taking care of me.
As a life-long Peanuts fan, I have mixed emotions of excitement and hesitation over the upcoming Peanuts film in 2015. I love that the world may come to appreciate Charlie Brown and Snoopy and the gang the way I did as a young child, but I feel that the majority of the movies and TV shows were special because Charles Schulz held creative control and was able to stay true to the characters. I sincerely hope that the filmmakers will respect this legacy while presenting Peanuts for a new generation. Do you have any feelings or thoughts on the upcoming film? You know, I have to say that I really appreciate your perspective and sensibility because obviously we have the same feelings. And that is one reason that it's taken so long before we did a movie. After my husband passed away, we just felt that nobody else could do it. There were several half hour specials taken mostly from the strip and kept very close to the strip without Charles Schulz individually inputting on them, but the team that is working on it, you couldn't have said it better because they are very sensitive to the tradition they are working in and believe me, they want to make this as close to Charles Schulz' sensibility as possible. We can't imagine what he would have thought or inputted or created for it, but I am very hopeful that it is going to be a movie that fans will truly enjoy and feel that we have put our 110% best effort into keeping it in the tradition. But it's a risk, I think we all knew that there was a certain risk to doing something new. Yet we eventually (it took a long time) wanted to do this. The original script and idea came from Sparky's son Craig Schulz who's in his 50s and his son Bryan who is a scriptwriter and his writing partner Neil Uliano, and they've written and sold several scripts, so the 3 of these family members did the script. And the BlueSky team that is working on it is very very sensitive. But the director, Steve Martino, is very very sensitive. I cannot speak more highly about his sensitivity to the material he is dealing with, and I think that's the best we can hope for, so I am certainly feeling that the question is right on and they are working their hardest. And it's more than just working hard, you also have to open up your heart and mind to let the right stuff come in.
Ms. Schulz: Was your husband a (deeply) religious man? What inspiration did he get from living in that way? Was (a god) important to have in his life? Why? How so? I think that he was a deeply thoughtful and spiritual man. Sparky was not the sort of person who would say "oh that's God's will" or "God will take care of it." I think to him that was an easy statement, and he thought that God was much more complicated. When he came back from the army he was very lonely. His mother had died and he was invited to church by a pastor who had prepared his mother's service from the Church of God. Sparky's father was worried about him and was talking to the pastor and so the pastor invited sparky to come to church. So Sparky went to church, joined the youth group and for a good 4-5 years he went to Bible study and went to church 3 times a week (2 bible studies, 1 service). He said he had read the bible through three times and taught sunday school. He was always looking for what those passages REALLY Might have meant. Some of his discussions with priests and ministers were so interesting because he wanted to find out what these people (who he thought were more educated than he) thought. When he taught Sunday school, he would never tell people what to believe. God was very important to him, but in a very deep way, in a very mysterious way.
Were the characters in the strip based on real people/children? They're based on Sparky's (my husband's) observations of the world and of children in the world. But the names of the characters come from real people. There was a Charlie Brown in art instruction schools in Minneapolis when he worked there (he worked there as an instructor that looked at the lessons that came in through the mail - it was a correspondence course. He took the course when he was about 18 and then he went back to work for them when he came out of the army. This friend of Sparky's said that people never called him Charlie, they always called him Charlie Brown.) There was another fellow named Linus, and Lucy had her name early on, but she got her last name about a year later when Sparky and his wife Joyce moved to Colorado SPrings and he ran into a fellow who rented an office in the same building walking up the stairs and this fellow was called "Van Pelt" and he was someone that Sparky had been in the army with, so he used that name, but at first Linus and Lucy did not have a last name.
Shermy was there a lot in the early part of the strip, but sort of faded away and you see Shermy appear when they need a lot of characters. He sort of has a brush cut. Sometimes it's hard to identify the characters when there are a bunch of them... anyways Shermy was a friend of Sparky's and they knew each other from 12 on, played a lot of baseball together, and Shermy was a violinist and went on to have a career there and his mom taught piano. Sparky said he used to sit on the back porch waiting for Shermy to finish his piano lesson so he could come out and play, and he heard Beethoven in her house, which was probably (because he didn't come from a cultured family) quite a big discovery, that there are people who have this higher culture.
Schroeder who ends up playing Beethoven was a caddy - I've forgotten at the moment whether it was his last name or his first name, but they called him Schroeder. He was a caddy at the golf course when Sparky was a teenager who also caddied. He said they got 25 cents a bag. Not a lot for carrying a bag all day.
Hello Mrs. Schulz! Your husband is still an inspiration to myself and millions of others. What is your favorite scene in "A Charlie Brown Christmas"? Thank you. Well I love the whole theme, and then some of the scenes around it of Snoopy decorating his dog house, and then Charlie Brown saying "my dog's gone commercial!"
It's just because it's such a funny juxtaposition with the kids and the school play and the Christmas tree and then you have a sidestory where even your dog is disappointing you.
If the characters had been allowed to age and grow up, what do you think they would be doing for a living? Oh boy! That's a good question. You know, it's funny but there is a play, I may go down and see it in June, I think it's called "Utterly Filthy", where the hero of the play is Pigpen, which is a great title. It's 40 years later and all the characters have grown up. But I haven't seen it yet, so I can't tell you what the playwright is imagining.
But you sort of think Linus is probably teaching at some level. Lucy is probably running a software company (I'm making this all up, I have no idea) and Schroeder might be a conductor. I'm anxious to see this play and see what he proposed, though, because Pigpen is his favorite character.
And Charlie Brown? He's such a soft, easy, guy that he'd be doing something like being an oceanographer or studying marine mammals or something? He has so much compassion. He might run the Humane Society. That would be perfect because one of the people Sparky truly loved was the person who ran the Humane Society in Santa Rosa. He would take in all the spray pets that nobody would want, and Sparky admired him so much because of his level of compassion for the animals. We live out in the country and we have rattlesnakes, and I would ask him to get rid of them and he would say "that rattlesnake isn't hurting anybody". So yes, Charlie Brown is going to run the Humane Society.
Hello Mrs. Schultz. Thank you for doing an AMA. Your husband's work has had a tremendous imprint on memories of my youth. I have read that "Peanuts" was a title unilaterally selected by an editor for the comic strip and your husband did not care for it. Any truth to that and, if so, what was his title of choice? Well that is true. Absolutely true. He would have liked it to be called "L'il Folks." He had done a panel comic for a year and a half in the St Paul Pioneer Press and I'm sure that's what he submitted this as when he submitted the 6 weeks of strips to the Syndicate in New York, but they didn't want to use that because there was a previous comic artist, Tack Knight, was still living and he hadn't drawn the strip in a long time but he still owned the name "Little Folks."
Also there was a time when you used the word "Peanuts" to describe little kids. So a Syndicate editor came up with that. The editor said that he couldn't use "L'il Folks." Sparky suggested "Good Old Charlie Brown" and they said no.
I think they were probably right. I've had people ask me, 40 years after the comic strip started, thinking that Peanuts was the name of one of the characters. But as a conglomerate word, Peanut captures that gang of kids in a way that "Good Old Charlie Brown" would not have. Because it is more of the gang, the grouping that is important. Charlie Brown is the main character (although Snoopy has become a linchpin) but Peanuts really captures it. And he still didn't like it! So there he gets the cranky.
What other comic strips did you or your husband enjoy? Calvin & Hobbes fans? Oh absolutely! If you read the comics and were fortunate enough to have it in your paper, and some papers still have Calvin & Hobbes now (I've seen it in international papers). Of course Sparky liked older comics. He loved Popeye and he could draw a really good Popeye when he was in highschool. And Li'l Abner, and he said that when Li'l Abner and Daisy Mae got married, that was a big mistake because you need that tension. Part of movies and plays and books is tension between characters and they sort of lost that tension. Maybe they became a crabby couple, I can't remember. All cartoonists love Lilttle Nemo, but the comic strips that he liked - Cathy (not so much for the drawing but for her situations), THE FAR SIDE (he thought it was so funny), he liked a lot of the New Yorker cartoonists too. Lynn Johnston he thought was a beautiful artist with a current comic strip that kept up with day to day and the kids were growing older, and Mutts by Patrick McDonnel, and there were many more. We have a friend whose strip is not widely syndicated, Drabble is the name of the strip, and LuAnn. And he might have read other comic strips that he might not have said much to me about.
How do you feel that much of your husband's work are classics? Halloween isn't Halloween without the Great Pumpkin, Thanksgiving needs the gang drawn as Pilgrims to put me in the mood, Christmas always has Charlie contemplating the meaning of Christmas while shopping for a tree. I think it's amazing that all of those things have become part of our culture. He did not set out to write the great American novel, or to do a comic strip that will last 100 years, but I'm used to it now, especially because we have the museum and that's what I have to focus on now. I think when people asked him "did you ever think your characters would become part of the culture" it puzzled him a bit too and he didn't have a very good answer for it. Of course you're surprised because you didn't intend to write a novel that would describe the world, but I think his answer was something like "I just tried to put everything I had into the comic strip and do the best I could every day." Also, I think that he had a real respect for his readers, he never wrote "down" to them, and you'll notice when he did silly puns it was always Snoopy who could get away with silly things. I think the fact that he respected his readers and wanted to write the comic strip at the highest level that he could. So I think that all those things kind of make up it. But as far as it becoming a classic, all of those things are pretty magical in a way.
Thanks for sharing your husband with us for so many years, Mrs. Schultz. Here's my question - Do you think the Peanuts themes from the past are relevant today? How do you think a 21st century Peanuts would be received? Oh absolutely! I still think people struggle with self-worth issues, my goodness yes. Even more now because everybody is picking at you, it seems. I lover her, does she like me, that is never going to stop. Even if you get to something like the trickster Lucy, we think of her as pulling the football but she's also the crank who's bursting your bubble all the time, I think those themes are universal. That is something that I don't know if he ever said "I'm going to make a group of characters and themes that will last for 100 years" but because they came SO MUCH from his heart and his unique Midwest background in the Depression when things were tough and everybody worked hard and people came together- those themes are still valid. Even though the world has changed and become much more materialistic than when he was a boy and everyone is much more worldly, all of those universal human characteristics aren't going to change. But people are talking about how our short term thinking is evolving because everyone is thinking in bytes. But not for a while.
What did you think of the musical Snoopy? I personally love it. It's got such great songs. I love it too! I think in some ways it's better than "You're a Good Man Charlie Brown." I have a record of it in italian and I love to listen to it in italian because I know the words in English too. It's WONDERFUL. You're right on. Snoopy is great.
Who was your personal favorite Peanuts character and why? Well, it's very hard to have a favorite character but what I always tell people when they ask me that is I associate with Sally. I don't think I'm quite as dingy as her, but I call myself "clueless" so it may really be that I'm more like her than I know.
But maybe the reason I associate with Sally is because I used to call Sparky my sweet baboo - you say baby and baboo came out - and Sally torments Linus with that. So then I stopped calling him that, but he probably should have regretted that because it was a pretty nice term of endearment.
But the characters are all so well-rounded. Even Lucy even though she is so mean also has a very vulnerable side. And sometimes philosophical side! But it's hard to pick one character, but I associate myself with Sally.
Hello, Mrs. Schulz. Thank you for taking the time for this AMA. With the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas coming up in 2015, are there any plans in the works to mark the occasion? Oh you bet there are but I just don't know what they are! Somebody wrote to me and said that there are plans for performing A Charlie Brown Christmas: The Play with additional group singing next Christmas which I thought was wonderful news. I believe they are doing it a little later this month at Carnegie Hall. It's a fuller version I believe, I don't know exactly, but that will be done in 2014, it may be on the road in 2015. I said to the person who told me "I'm going to forget this, so when you tell me this again it will be like new information." But you bet they will be celebrating it!
The Twin Cities love Charles Schulz! But did he like us? Did he enjoy his childhood in St. Paul, and did he ever come back to visit as an adult? Yes I think he felt he had a perfect childhood. He was an only child, and his parents did not go beyond the third grade, but his father had a barbershop and was able to keep the shop open, so I think it was a wonderful example for Sparky to live with, someone who had to manage his own shop and several employees. His mother did not work and they had quite a bit of family around so even though he was an only child, they had enough of a circle of family who he remembers that he probably learned a lot from. He enjoyed going on the streetcar with his mother, and playing in the neighborhood, and playing hockey in the backyard. He did go back sometime in the 60s before we were married. After we were married there was an around the world and back again exhibition of comic strips and memorabilia that took place in the old train station which had been refurbished into a public area and that was a lot of fun. I think that would have been in 1995, and he did go back then and met up with a bunch of his old friends. More friends from high school and the Church of God. So he had a good time then.
Snoopy was always writing versions of "it was a dark and stormy night", was that based on something else Mr. Schulz wrote? No, that is a famous line from a novel "Paul Clifford" and the author has 3 names - Edward Bulwer-Lytton - and all literature people know it, it's been used again and again. He simply picked it up and had Snoopy do it, and now people think it's Snoopy's line. He somehow came across it, and used it for Snoopy, and when people would say "how did you come up with the Great Pumpkin and Dark and stormy night" he came up with the Great Pumpkin, that holidays came along so quickly in the fall, what if a kid got confused about the holiday and thought what if the pumpkin was like Santa Claus and bringing them something? And he tried it and people liked it. He would say the same thing about "it was a dark and stormy night" - obviously he liked it and it suited Snoopy because it's such an overblown expression, you are going to think it's something dark happening, and sometimes Snoopy is writing really silly things. So that juxtaposition appealed to him, and people liked it, and of course literature people would immediately know where it came from. People were always writing to him saying that they were glad he had picked up that bit of reality and put it in his comic strip. When he drew the musical notes for Schroeder, he always used actual musical notes, and the first time he did that somebody wrote him and said "I can't believe you put a little bit of Beethoven's something symphony" (*it wasn't always Beethoven, there were a lot of musical strips) - he realized that when that person wrote to him, people recognized and appreciated authenticity and you are writing for them. You are writing those Beethoven notes in your silly little comic strip for that person who is a musical expert. Appreciating your audience is important. It shows respect for them.
What's your very best life advice? I guess (it sounds so trite) but I think that it would be this whole thing (which would have sounded so impractical to me 40 years ago - I would have said "it's so easy for you to say") but I think that you have to follow your passion.
That is 90% of it. Because if you don't like where you are and what you're doing, you're not going to do it very well and it is not going to work out well for you. But in general, I think that people are afraid to let themselves go and even think what is it that they would really like to do. But I think that has to be it. That has to be what the life advice is, because by being happy and being positive, you are creating a world that is different and better. And I know that sounds really saccharine, but I mean it in a really practical way.
Hello! I've always wondered: what music did Sparky enjoy? Did he listen to any music while working? He did occasionally. And I wasn't always in the studio, but he had an old record player and a big selection of records. He didn't always listen to music, sometimes he listened to talk radio and sometimes he had the television on, but not always, but he liked the old honky tonk country westerns, you know Merle Haggard and Scruggs. He also did like classical music. And the thing about classical that was so interesting was that we have letters in the museum from Sparky to Frank (one of his army buddies) that say "You won't believe it Frank, but I'm learning to like classical music." Apparently when he was in the army he would make fun of or razz people who liked classical but at art instruction school, his coworkers were all college educated and so they read literature, and one of them said to me "He didn't know anything about classical music, but once he started listening to it, he amassed a bigger record collection than any of us." He had the ability to focus and concentrate that I can't understand. He used to be able to whistle classical pieces and guess what people were whistling, and there are probably 4 classical themes that I could say or semi-sing. He must have had a dozen. He had an amazing focusing ability.
Snoopy's face has evolved over the years into a rounder face. What's the reasoning behind the decision to revert back to the longer face from earlier days? So when Sparky started, Snoopy was VERY very angular. And he just became rounder and rounder just naturally. It wasn't anything that Sparky said he looked better rounder, it was just his drawing. When Sparky was alive, he never liked what he drew yesterday (and other artists will understand this). So when licensees who make the toys were making product, he wanted them to continually update the design with what he was drawing currently. So licensees did that. But we all loved the old Snoopy, not the REALLY early Snoopy but the 60's Snoopy. And I can remember saying to him once "I think it's cute" and he said "I didn't like it" in reference to those earlier designs. It was his creation and he had the right to do that. But after he passed away, and it's been 12-13 years now, we have slowly come to an agreement that most of us like that 60's or 70's model with a slightly longer nose, and our audience likes it, so that's what we've reverted to for the most part. Personally I don't mind it being rounded but I think it's very important that the nose has definition between the forehead and the snout so there's a crease there. But he wanted the product to keep up with what he was drawing, and his drawing changed just naturally because that happens, you would not be an artist if you copied the same thing year after year for 50 years. Part of being an artist is trying to evolve. But sometimes you'll see the 60's or 70's model being labeled "vintage Peanuts" - that's what it is.
Do you have any plans to have exhibits from the Museum to tour the country? Yes, we do have many, and I believe (I'm not a website browser) but I believe on our website we have a traveling exhibitions page or section. And if you go to it you can see where they are and where they are coming. Currently we have at least 4 different shows traveling, many of them are made up of reproductions of strips that are very high quality so that you can see on them linework that's drawn over and corrections and so forth. It's impractical to travel originals because of the requirements of the building they are in and the cost. We have one that's called "Peanuts naturally" that has lots of hands-on elements for children and adults, and we have a show of originals in Hollywood, Florida which I believe is just finishing up. Typically works on paper can be out in the light for 3-4 months, so that's why a lot of shows in galleries will be there six weeks or 2 months. The Hollywood Florida one should run through the holidays.
And then we have a very wonderful show in Tokyo. And that is in a museum with 15,000 square feet, the Mori Art Center, and it's in an area of Rappongi Hills, and the building and the art gallery are on the 53rd floor of this wonderful building. They have over 100 originals and probably 1000 artifacts - Sparky's baseball glove from when he was a kid, Hockey sticks, hockey clothes, they've reproduced his studio in a smaller version - so that people get a wonderful view of his life and history. Peanuts is very popular in Japan, so it was worth it for them I think to pay that money because they are able to share it with so many people and have lots of admissions.
There's a "Merry Christmas Charlie Brown" show in the gardens of Columbus Ohio, and "To the Moon: Snoop Soars with NASA" and it's in Greendale, South Carolina. That show talks about the Apollo mission, when the modules were called Snoopy and Charlie Brown, which is taking people back 40 years.
And then the "Peanuts Naturally" one that I was telling you about is in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, and there's a smaller version of that show at Canton, Ohio, so they are ALL over. There are different venues.

What is your favorite Peanuts holiday special and why? :) Well I suppose that I'd have to say the Christmas one. Although I think we've done some follow up Christmas shows - Charlie Brown's Christmas Shows and It's Christmas Again - but what amazes me about the Charlie Brown Christmas is if I don't watch it for a while because I don't tend to watch it on DVD, I like to watch it on television, I'm amazed all over again because I will say "oh! I had forgotten that." I think that's nice, that 40 years later that something can still be a little bit surprising to you. But I like all of them because I have memories for all of them. I was not married to Sparky when the first 2 were made, but the Thanksgiving one I can remember going to Los Angeles for a screening somewhere, and when they were doing the other shows, I remember other things about them. The Christmas show still makes me think it must have been a good show because it can still surprise me.
Is Linus' attachment to his blanket based on a real observation or rather something that many children have. I know my son takes his all over the place. He is three. Yes, Sparky always used to say that Linus' blanket came from the fact that their youngest daughter Jill who was born in '58 could not go anywhere without her blanket, so it absolutely came from his family.
Hi Jean! I love Peanuts. How did Charles come up with the idea for handling adults... particularly the "wha wha wha" voice. There were no adults in the comic strip. If you go back to the VERY early comic strips, you'll see an offstage voice where an adult is obviously saying 'time for dinner' (I'm making that up) but there were no adults in the strip, and Sparky used to say when people would ask him why there would be no adults he would say "the panels are too short and they wouldn't fit." But the truth is that it's abstract, it's not reality, and the minute you put an adult it in it, it becomes a real strip. And so when they did the first Christmas show, Sparky and the team would talk all these things out and they talked about adult voices. Sparky would say "no we can't have adults in it" and Bill Melendez made up a trumpet with mute on it, and he got someone to do that and thought that was a great sound, and it's funny how that sound has become iconic. Because you hear people say "oh wha wah" because it's the voice you don't want to listen to.
Bill also made Snoopy's voice. He made some noises on the tape, and then sped it up. So it was all seat of the pants stuff. And then it became classic, because it worked.

2013.02.24 22:10 Olivero MMPR Episode 3: Teamwork Discussion Thread

(Warning: Wall of text inbound. Skip to summary at the bottom if too long.)
It has been 20 years since I first watched Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. I remember being excited for the first episode, as I had seen commercials for the premere. From the premere on, I watched every single episode I could up until Light Speed Rescue, as I felt that Power Rangers had peaked for me at PRIS with the death of Zordon.
Now we have our newest series, Megaforce, and with so many references back to the original series, I wanted to rewatch the episodes in parallel. Since the last discussion thread on Megaforce is episode 3, I thought I'd start posting with episode 3 of MMPR as well.
With all that aside, let's go!
The episode opens with our heroines Trini and Kimberly petitioning students to help clean up an "industrial waste site." Mr. Caplan praises the girls for their hard work, but does wonder if the site is as bad as they say. Trini assures him it is. Rita sees an opportunity and begins scheming immediately to attack the rangers at the site.
Back with the petition, Billy, Jason, and Zack meet the girls. The girls ask the guys to help with the cleanup, but the guys cannot as they have prior responsibilities. After the guys leave, much to Kimberly and Trini's chagrin, Bulk and Skull incite some mischief (with an unknown third girl?!).
Rita's scheme evolves, and Goldar suggests ambushing the girls at the dump with the Putties. The plans works, and the girls begin to fight the Putties unmorphed. I mention this, because they stay this way throughout the entire ambush. Kimberly and Trini easily hold their own, highlighting just how strong the girls are.
Meanwhile, an alarm goes off at the Command Center during a lesson of 'Hip-Hop-Akido' alerting everyone to the plight of Kimberly and Trini. Just before the guys can help, Rita launches a monster, The Most Menacing Minotaur, forcing the team to fight on two fronts.
The Minotaur proves to be a strong foe, easily deflecting attacks from the Black, Blue, and Red rangers. The girls finally dispose of the last two putties before the Command Center alarm goes off again! Now? Goldar is attacking! Rita has opened up a third attack on Angel Grove, forcing Kimberly and Trini to morph as well. The girls move to fight Goldar who decides to send Putties... because Putties definitely stopped Kimberly and Trini when they were unmorphed.
The girls easily dispatch the Putties and charge straight at Goldar, which is pretty badass as he is Rita's most powerful general. Kimberly is slightly injured, leaving Trini to fight Goldar on her own. This fight is great and once again highlights feminine strength.
Back with the guys... they are getting their asses kicked. It's bad. How bad? Even Squat and Baboo have join in the fight by throwing large boulders down on the guys. To make matters worse, Rita says fuck you and makes her monster grow.
The girls see the monster in the distance in a scene that is odd. Kim is protecting a small child from Putties. Ah, Sentai editing. Trini and Jason agree to call the zords and Trini suggests finishing the Putties and Goldar at the same time. So they do.
And thus begins my favorite part of PR. Looking back I understood why I loved it so much. MMPR has the best Zord footage out of any Power Rangers to date with the exception of PRIS. Watch the Tyranosaurus Dinozord rise in an explosion of fire and tell me it isn't badass. I dare you. The same goes for the Mastodon, Triceratops, Sabertooth-Tiger, and the Pterodactyl.
This episode features all of the zords fighting. The rangers each attack Rita's forces, with Kimberly dispatching the remaining Putties and Goldar with what appear to be lightning cannons. Everyone else engages the Minotaur with varying degrees of success. The rangers go so far as to bring the zords together to transform into tank mode. (I wish more Power Rangers series made use of multiple modes instead of multiple zords.)
Surprisingly, Zordon calls the rangers back, ending the battle. I think this is the weakest part of the episode, just because it doesn't make sense, but it still very strong as the Rangers get access to their new weapons. With the theme song driving in the background, the new weapons are used against a newly miniaturized Minotaur. Eventually, with the team assembles their weapons into the Power Cannon and to dispatch the monster with a show of fire and color. Rita is stunned! Everyone blames Finster for making a bad monster.
Now back at the high school, Trini reflects on how awesome teamwork is. Jason agrees, and the team cleans up the hall to Mr. Caplan's surprise. Zordon thanks the team, and the episode closes a funny line from Zack about Alpha dancing.
Cue the credits.
Summary: This episode is great. I recommend watching it against Megaforce, as it makes you appreciate just how special the first series is. This episode is very progressive. The episode's title is "Teamwork" but should be called "Girlwork" as the main theme of the episode is feminine strength.
From the beginning Kimberly and Trini are central to the events of the episode. From cleaning up Industrial Waste sites to kicking Goldar's ass, they own. Trini has several excellent moments, displaying kindness, intelligence, strength, and leadership. In comparison, well, the guys even have a hard time with Squat and Baboo.
