Since the last post over a month ago, I have been reading and re-watching stuff to inspire my “Island in the Hidden Sea of Fire” project.
The Land That Time Forgot and At The Earth’s Core
I consider “The Land That Time Forgot” and “At The Earth’s Core” by Edgar Rice Burroughs as the essential foundation for any sort of “Lost World” setting.
I think you can’t go wrong with ERB as inspirational materials for any sort of “adventure setting.”
Next time, Post #150, in which I hope to have something more substantial to say.
For the 4th and last day of my post-apoc movie binge, I will be watching:
Def-Con4 & Hell Comes to Frogtown
I have certainly seen “Frogtown” a few times in the past, so have saved it for last.
Up for watching today is something I didn’t know existed until about a year ago – the 1982 remake of “She” starring Sandahl Bergman set in a post-apocalyptic world.
I managed to find an old VHS copy, but it has bad tracking issues and I don’t have the equipment to make it viewable (all I’ve got is a DVD / VHS combo unit without any sort of manual tracking adjustment).
So eventually turned to an “unofficial source.” Didn’t want to, but since never released on DVD in Region 1 had no other viable option. Would have gladly paid more for an official release if could get one.
Planned for Day 2 we will leave behind the “serious” works of the 1970s and move into 1980s cheese territory:
The New Barbarians (aka Warriors of the Wasteland)
2019 After the Fall of New York
This week is my break from clinical training, so am planning to watch a slew of post-apoc movies from the 1970s and 1980s. Almost none of which I have ever seen before.
Today’s schedule, 3 works by Gene Roddenberry that were made as TV pilots in the mid-1970s:
Strange New World
