Terror in the Tropics (from The Vault)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...
 

On this week's From The Vault movie review segment, I take a quick look at the 2006 film 'Terror in the Tropics' which is a love letter of sorts to films of the 1930s



QUICK NOTES
  • Released in 2006 from Midnight Marquee
  • Basic plot: Several person are named beneficiaries of a deceased stranger, travel to an island surrounded in fog where the local residents has some dire schemes in mind for one of the travelers
  • Homage to films from the 1930s
  • Archive footage is used to help enhance the story , it's not used as a crutch
  • There is a great reference to Superman & Spider-Man
  • Acting can be over the top and underplayed, but it is forgivable
  • Avaliable at www.midmar.com

Live From The Basement: Indiana Jones & The Fate Of Atlantis Part 2 (Wits Path)

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement... 
We're back with part two of the Wits path of Indiana Jones & The Fate of Atlantis... we got Hot Balloons, Nazis, Beads that Glitter Like Fire and a God Machine to deal with! 
  -- Watch live at https://www.twitch.tv/fredcasden


QUICK NOTES
  • I botched the ending a couple of times, as I couldn't quite remember the dialog path to get Uberman to take Indy's place
  • I actually got the Wits path confused with the Fists path while in the maze, because it's on the Fists path where you rescue Sophia from a hole
  • Took me way to long to remember that the oily rag was needed to start the fire on the sub
  • Can't believe I botched up badly with the Crescent Piece in the wrong spot
  • It is possible to beat this game by leaving Sophia in the Dungeon or leaving her possessed by Nur-Ab-Sal

Disney Should Make A Sequel To The Great Mouse Detective

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

Disney has made a lot of unnecessary sequels over the years...  but there is one film that ends with a tease of future adventures that deserves one... The Great Mouse Detective! 



QUICK NOTES
  • The Great Mouse Detective premiered on July 2, 1986... the film is over 30 years old!
  • While I'm not a fan of casting famous actors just because they are famous, I believe if Disney casted Benedict Cumberbatch as Basil
  • It does amaze me that Disney has not already done this considering the popularity the Sherlock Holmes franchise has had over the course of the last decade with the two films and of course the Sherlock TV series.
