Happy New Year!

Happy 2017 from PopCultureCast!  2016 can suck it.  It's over.  It's done.  It's time for fresh beginnings and to get rid of the baggage of the last year!  Let's do it together!  

This year, PCC is going to be a primary focus for me.  Since coming back to it seriously in the later half of '16, it's really grown in daily readers and has rekindled my excitement for it.  I couldn't have done it without the help of writer and friend Ben.  He's a huge part of what helps make this site a success.  It's nice to have different voices to be able to look at different parts of our pop culture landscape.  Expect more of this in '17.  

Here on the site, we'll be doing our reviews and commentary on movies, comics, tv shows and music.  Over on the YouTube channel, I'll be doing daily (Monday-Saturday) retro let's play videos in addition to occasional Lists and Rant videos.  I'm focusing on the 10 Minutes Alone series over there because I'm having a complete blast playing those old ass games.  Hopefully some people are interested in watching an old dude talking about old games. 

I hope you stick with us this year as we work our way through finding out who we are. We've got a good idea but we're always looking to perfect it.  If you have any ideas or things you'd like to see either here or on the YouTube channel, please get in touch either by comments here or over on our Facebook page or Twitter.  I would love to hear from you.

Once again, as a wise man once said..."be cool to each other."  This is our year.  Let's all make it the best it can be.

What is the most ICONIC Godzilla To YOU?

I need the community's help on this one.  I'm trying to figure out which version of Godzilla is the definitive version.  As fans, we've all jumped on board during different eras.  To some, the '54 version may be the iconic image that immediately springs to mind when you hear the name Godzilla.  To others, it could be one from the 80's or 90's.  It could also be one of the American versions.  I'm trying to find out which variation is the definitive version that fans think of when thinking of Godzilla.  I hope this makes sense!  
To answer this question, I've created a poll featuring every Godzilla movie (as well as an add your own spot).  Simply pick the movie that contains your ideal mental image of Godzilla.  Don't just pick your favorite movie.  Pick which movie contains that version of Godzilla that's ideal to YOU!  I'll leave the poll up for a week and when all results are tallied, we'll hopefully have an idea of what pops into people…

Alice Cooper / Columbia, SC / 5-13-17

The last time Alice Cooper made a tour stop in Columbia, SC, Jimmy Carter was president, gas was .65 a gallon and Alice was a drunken mess.  Cooper's stop at the Carolina Coliseum on June 29, 1978 was part of his King of the Silver Screen tour promoting his then current album Lace and Whiskey.  Judging by the reaction of the packed crowd that assembled to see him Saturday night, it won't take 39 years to bring his show back to town.

King Kong (1933) Movie Review

With Kong: Skull Island's release this week, it's time to take a look back at the original film that started the long tradition of giant monsters.  1933's King Kong revolutionized the way that special effects were used in film.  Never before had the world seen a movie of this scale and magnitude.  Directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack with special effects by Willis O'Brian, King Kong is simply one of the most important films of all time.
