The Star Wars Story: how George Lucas and Steven Spielberg held Hollywood hostage for 20 years

    A short introduction before we get started: My name is Vee, and my first attempt at a timeline was an adject failure by virtually all standards. I entered into it with little preparation and quickly felt overwhelmed and abandoned it, but I never stopped thinking about what it could have been...

    AHC: Not so much snarl, Julius, not Karl

    Following this quote in Polchat I skimmed Marx's Wiki page and found this quote from Irving Berlin I do not, and will not claim to be an expert on any of the Marx's lives, although I do enjoy their films, so here's the challenge, with a POD that still includes the making of Duck Soup in it's...

    WI: Less popular superhero genre

    In the 1950s, superhero comics were in a major decline. Nobody wanted to read comic books about costumed crimefighters who had silly names and fought equally silly villains, Axis minions and gangsters at the end of World War II. Many comics companies that produced superhero comics went bankrupt...

    Hnefatafl as popular as Chess

    Lately I've been spending a lot of time playing a game called Hnefatafl or Viking Chess as some might call it. For those unfamiliar, Hnefatafl is an asymmetric chess like game where the goal for white to get it's king to safety and for black to capture white's king. Under the Copenhagen rules...

  11. Disney doesn't hire Michael Eisner

    Michael Eisner changed everything. When he became CEO of Disney in 1984, he transformed the company from another family-oriented film studio to the enormous corporate media behemoth that it is today. It is due to Eisner that the studio went through its renaissance in the 1990's, and expanded its...

    The best books never written

    Essentially, sort of a literary equivalent to The best movies/TV shows/video games never made threats. Only this time, it's about books ranging from novels, comic books and graphic novels, and textbooks for schools.

    Prologue: A Fateful Choice It was impossible to pretend that Steve Ditko was anything other than one of the biggest names in the comic book world. Right alongside the likes of Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Gardener Fox, he had been in the game for one hell of a long time and without a doubt, his...

    WI: Horror films becomes a box-office staple

    The horror genre is considered the black sheep of the pantheon of Hollywood genres. Films of that genre ended up as marginalized second-rate B-movies done with low budgets and sub-par talent. Those films were filled with cheesy special effects and hammy acting. Due to the Production Code, many...
