How Atlantis REALLY Perished . . .
Okay . . . . We are traveling back in time 20,000 years to the continent of Atlantis and the city of Metropolis and we meet a mild-mannered reporter for the Daily Planet . . . . oops . . . . Wrong Metropolis. Okay . . . . A group of men are headed to Metropolis to warn the King about impending doom for the continent of Atlantis . . . The old sage is dying and tells his son, the strongest man in the world, to continue on to Metropolis and warn the wicked King to cease his evil ways or face destruction. King Yotar and his cosmic scientists are transplanting brains and keeping men alive forever. When King Yotar is told about the group of strangers approaching the city his cosmic scientists unleash the whirlwinds of death on the group and all perish except Obro, the strongest man in the world. It looks like this adventure will be a classic sword and sandal adventure about the struggles of the strongest man in the world against an evil King Yotar . . . . Wait . . . . I may be on the wrong path here . . . King Yotar has just called for his beautiful daughter Mecede and she enters in a beautiful ten minute interpretive dance with two buff men . . . dancing ceremonially into the King's chamber . . . I think this is going to be a high-brow dance story . . . . A 1960's ballet if you will, expressing the regal dance and choreography of the day . . . . I should have noticed earlier that the stiff, slow movements of the actors are dance positions in an ancient outer space allegory . . . . No . . . . Wait a minute . . . . The stiff, stilted movements of the actors are not dance-like, and after Mecede's elegant dancing entrance there will be no more dance scenes, we are back to cosmic outer space mad science amid the prediction of great doom for Metropolis and the continent of Atlantis. This will be a science fiction thriller . . . . Watch the strong man scream in agony as King Yotar aims the light from an overhead lamp into his eyes . . . . I am reminded of tough cops shining a bright light on a criminal in the police station . . . This strong man must be light-sensitive or something . . . . or maybe the science fiction is more esoteric than I can imagine . . . . Anyway . . . . Yotar the mad King of Metropolis will ignore the advice of his cosmic scientists to abandon Atlantis, and strong man Obro, together with the King's beautiful daughter Mecede will battle the evil forces of King Yotar in a vain attempt to save Atlantis from doom . . . . Awww . . . . Heck . . . . . Ya know what? . . . . . Just pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it . . . . Put your brain in neutral . . . . Don't even worry about a plot or sub-plots . . . . Just watch for the bare-chested men and the big-chested women and enjoy the show.
