“Stormy Tempest: Velocity Blaze” from Cult Retro

CR STVB 2 175x98 Stormy Tempest: Velocity Blaze from Cult RetroCult Retro has released the long-awaited Stormy Tempest: Velocity Blaze. Better yet, this video is available in two versions: the Cinematic Version and the Damsel in Distress Extended Version—which features six additional minutes of the peril. Check out Sidekick’s review below.

Stormy Tempest: Velocity Blaze (Review by Sidekick)

Sometimes a producer makes a film you enjoy so much, it feels like they made it just for you. So, thank you Cult Retro for making Stormy Tempest: Velocity Blaze just for me. OK, that’s ridiculous, they obviously didn’t make it for me. But it honestly felt like they did because they hit the two most important notes that make peril movies enjoyable to me.

1. Have a heroine who is powerful and competent – And that’s what Stormy Tempest is. Cult Retro has spent the better part of three seasons portraying her that way. I hate when any producer immediately sets up their heroine as either physically weak or in any way incompetent. All of the big name producers that we cover on a regular basis almost always portray their heroines as formidable, at least at the start of their films. I think this is incredibly important, because if the heroine is portrayed as anything less than strong, it just takes something away from the experience for me. For three seasons we have seen Stormy Tempest in her share of perils, but for the most part, she has ripped through small armies of enemies, making her seem like the proverbial unstoppable force.

2. Have the heroine take on an extremely powerful, seemingly invincible opponent – This is a hallmark of all my personal favorite peril films. I generally refer to it as the Zen Pictures method of peril filmmaking, and Cult Retro nailed it perfectly. Velocity Blaze is a terrific antagonist. The background on the character is that she comes from a planet where the gravity is much stronger than that of Earth, making her extremely strong and durable. We will get into specifics soon, but Velocity Blaze absolutely lays waste to Stormy for the better part of 20 minutes. Never have we seen Stormy physically dominated like this before as Velocity Blaze literally yawns at all of Stormy’s strongest attacks. Stormy is completely outmatched both physically and technologically, and it’s tremendous to watch a heroine we think of as powerful get totally manhandled. Sorry, womanhandled.

The episode picks up shortly after the end of the last episode where Stormy was taken into custody by a moss monster. Stormy awakens, only to find that the monster has also captured Velocity Blaze and tied them both up in unbreakable vine bonds. The ladies exchange some witty reparté and have a hilarious exchange that centers around Stormy’s “boob laser.” Actually, the boob laser does come in handy when Stormy uses it to obliterate the returning moss monster.

With the monster gone, the girls are able to escape their bonds, and that’s where things start to go south for Stormy. Velocity Blaze peppers Stormy with punches to the face, kicks, stomach punches, backhand slaps, and yes, even a low blow. A low blow in a Cult Retro film! Never thought I would see the day.

Blaze then easily lifts Stormy off the ground by… well… her boob laser and just holds her in the air for several seconds, demonstrating her superior strength. Stormy does manage to escape Blaze’s grasp and runs off. Blaze pursues as Stormy fires everything she has at Blaze to no effect. When her weapons fail to have any impact, she makes a stand and tries to physically dispatch Blaze. It doesn’t go well.

Blaze takes Stormy’s best punches with barely a flinch. Blaze subjects Stormy to a “why are you hitting yourself” moment, rams her head into a log several times, throws Stormy to the ground, and incapacitates Stormy’s laser gauntlet with her boot.

The majority of the rest of the film is frankly a one sided beat down that I never thought we would see Stormy exposed to and it is beautiful. There are kicks to the stomach and face, knockouts, a long strangulation, a de-belting, a de-masking, and a drug induced interrogation. Plus, there are plenty of long panning shots of a helpless Nicola Rae and her ample “boob lasers” if you know what I mean.

Please remember that for this season the producers at Cult Retro have been making two cuts of these films. As before, we look at the extended, more peril filled cut for review purposes although you can purchase both versions in a bundle for a discounted rate.

This is absolutely an incredible film and easily fits in my personal top three peril films. There is one more episode in this season and although I like to see a heroine triumphant in the end, I wouldn’t mind seeing Velocity Blaze knock Stormy around a little more. My tastes in these films gravitate towards the PG-13 style and I believe that along with Rye’s recent Skyfire, Stormy Tempest: Velocity Blaze would serve as perfect blueprints for any producer looking to shoot a peril film.

Announcement from Cult Retro

In January of 2013 we will be producing several new projects including Stormy Tempest: Season 5 (a.k.a. “The Death of Stormy Tempest”) and Stormy Tempest: Season 6 (a.k.a “Stormy Tempest: Quests”). We also intend to produce a new season of Blue Bulleteer adventures starring Maria Paris as BB and Nicola Rae as a villainess. To learn more about these projects check out our “Looking Ahead at 2013” article. January will be a busy month and will represent a significant portion of our film output next year (along with a few other surprises throughout the year).

At this time we are accepting donations for these projects. Donations at this stage will most likely be used to assemble and order costumes, props and set pieces. As a thank you for showing your support we have assembled a special treat for you as well.

Visit Cult Retro for more information

  1. The Stormy tempest series is amongst the very best in PG-rated peril out there. Very few people could be held up to be their peers. Certainly when it comes to story, there isn’t anyone in the genre (PG or not) that could match them ounce for ounce in story and plot. This is a great series, and a few notes on characterization could be taken by many producers (myself included.)

  2. War\m/Pigs

    I think you guys need Stormy’s costume to have the leotard (or what ever it is)
    to rise up above the hips.
    More people will definitely increase interest towards this series.
    In my opinion I would buy every single one of your movies if the costume was adjusted just a little bit down below.
    I know some people would disagree with me but I am fine with that.
    Just a suggestion, thank you for your time.

  3. If these hypothetical people are hung up on the cut of the costume one way or the other, then I’m not much interested in them purchasing the film. I realize that there is great debate about hose and heels and all of the trimmings, but it really has NOTHING to do with why we make movies.

    That said, I appreciate that you took the time to offer the suggestion and hope that some other aspect of the show eventually catches your eye.

  4. It’s part of why it’s a fetish though. If 5″ stiletto heels or shiny-gloss pantyhose or metallic-blue catsuits are what you need to get your swerve on, then that is the weighing decision I think between some groups either purchasing the videos or spending money elsewhere. It’s neither relevant or irrelevant. It just is. Fetishes oftentimes defy logic. I know this to be true.

    In the end, it is not up to the producers to cater to the micro-fetishes. Their tiny numbers don’t justify changing anything. They don’t represent a significant enough majority to affect financial policy. It is up to the micro-fetishists to find their own producers, not for the producers to cater to the minority. That’s really what custom videos are for. If it’s a micro-niche’, then they should pay to see what they like.

    Like everything, this is a business, not a wishing well.

  5. Very true. I’m not exactly sure where we fall to be honest. For us it is more about art than business. We frequently make artistic decisions that I know for a fact will compromise the viability of the end product. On the other hand we never would have made something like “Attack of the Giantess” without a pre-existing financial incentive. Without the reality of business we can’t continue to make our art, so there must be compromises all around. I suppose every producer wrestles with this to some degree (except for those that really don’t need an ROI because of other revenue streams).

    Stormy set a galaxy-wide war into motion several episodes ago. People have died and more people will die. She believes she made the right choice, but we believe that decision must have consequences for her. Artistically speaking: this decision is literally going to get her killed and will lead to the next evolution of her character, and you start to see that in this episode. From a business perspective: this is an opportunity to beat the bejeezus out of the girl and to do it in a way that will satisfy an audience that might have overlooked our efforts in the past.

    Lots of people (fans old and new) have asked to see Stormy in catfights and to see her in more dire perils and we intend to make that happen. This episode is just the tip of the iceburg, but everything to come is first and foremost driven by story, history and character.

    It should be lots of fun! :)

  6. Whitman

    I’m THRILLED that you decided to include a low blow in this most recent episode!

  7. Redmountain

    Amazing video! Stormy takes an absolute beatdown and for my money there isn’t a hereoine who looks sexier unconscious then her! Best part is when Velocity just blasts right through her shield, you have Stormy trying to defend herself then just getting completely waylaid by an energy blast that leaves her out of it for more punishment to follow. Just awesome overall! Can’t wait to see the next episode and glad to hear there is another Blue Bulleteer vid in the works!

  8. “If these hypothetical people are hung up on the cut of the costume one way or the other, then I’m not much interested in them purchasing the film.”

    awesome. nice to see a producer who just-doesn’t-give-a-fuck about trolls. probably why stormy tempest rules and this film looks great.

  9. “It is up to the micro-fetishists to find their own producers, not for the producers to cater to the minority. That’s really what custom videos are for. If it’s a micro-niche’, then they should pay to see what they like…. Like everything, this is a business, not a wishing well.”

    man, that was well said, too. probably why i like shakeshift’s videos as well.

  10. I haven’t seen many of shakeshift’s videos, but those that I have seen offer some surprisingly funny moments. It cracks me up when the jokes and satire start flying in the middle of what should be a fairly brainless fetish set up. I don’t know if many of his fans appreciate that sort of thing or not, but I think it’s great. I’d like to see him make something a bit bigger in scope and ambition someday.

    Unleash the storyteller! Nudity is a crutch, man. :)

  11. TurboMan

    Yeah fuck that War\m/Pigs dude!
    he’s a total fuckin troll!
    Fuck his suggestions, know one gives a shit.
    keep doing what you guys are doing!

  12. Aldous

    This has to be one of the best quotes I’ve read on here :Unleash the storyteller! Nudity is a crutch, man. :)

  13. War\m/Pigs provided a perfectly valid suggestion and he was friendly about it. It just turns out that it’s not the kind of thing that we go out of our way to address or concern ourselves with. It never hurts to ask though.

    We try to let the actresses guide the costume choices whenever possible. Women generally know how to show themselves off to best advantage and to hide what doesn’t work as well. I personally like half-shirts, but I know better than to put one on an actress that doesn’t think it’s a good idea.

  14. Jobber Lover

    I always find it interesting how passionate some people get about what seems like the smallest details in a video. I can remember when Wonderful Girl, The Return came out and some people were like the little red trim line around the leg openings on her panties were a “deal breaker”. I was like “Wow, I didn’t even notice that.”

    My thing is I always want the heroine to lose. The more complete the destruction the better. But, I can appreciate the folks who dig the kick-ass Kandy type stuff. I think the Stormy Tempest series has been great. You can see that the producers enjoy what they do and are clever and passionate about adding interesting elements to the story.

    I’ve really liked the direction the whole genre is going. There is more good stuff out there today then ever before.

  15. Jobber Lover

    Cult Retro,

    One more question.
    Not trying to rush you guys or anything. But just curious if we will be one day seeing a video featuring Lacey in a similar type beat-down to what Stormy takes in this one?

  16. hero.smasher

    This is an amazing video! Worth every penny for the action, plot, peril, and humor.

    Love that you guys shoot outdoors. The dirt, leaves, and debris on her costume add a nice touch to the devastating defeat of the mighty Stormy Tempest. I really liked in the first fight when she is knocked flat to slide down the hill some. A little thing, but those are what make a film!

    Look forward to next chapter.

  17. We thought we killed her. That wasn’t supposed to happen. I asked her to slowly sink backwards and just lie back… instead she goes sliding down the hill. We’ll release some of the raw footage soon and you’ll see us all panic and rush in to see if she’s ok. Fortunately she was, fortunately she kept acting (because she IS a superhero), and fortunately the camera was in a good spot.

    Oh, wait… I mean we planned the whole thing! It was shear brilliance on our part! Thanks for noticing! :)

  18. “Very true. I’m not exactly sure where we fall to be honest. For us it is more about art than business. We frequently make artistic decisions that I know for a fact will compromise the viability of the end product. On the other hand we never would have made something like “Attack of the Giantess” without a pre-existing financial incentive. Without the reality of business we can’t continue to make our art, so there must be compromises all around. I suppose every producer wrestles with this to some degree (except for those that really don’t need an ROI because of other revenue streams).”

    The conflict of all artists, eh? Every musician, painter, architect, sculptor, play write, director, etc all go through this throughout history. You want to create the purest representation of your artform possible. But financial realities which you need to conform to in order to continue to produce your hobby will dictate your work in some way or another. Its a sad truth.

    Anyway, Stormy is great. I’d personally love to see more skin. I bought this one regardless and it was fine, but that might not be the case next time and a higher cut leotard could sadly be the deciding factor and make the difference. I’m not a hardcore high cut leotard person, it is not make it or break it for me. But there’s a lot to weigh when you are making a decision to buy a video. First you look at your budget, then you look at the content of the video, see if it is worth the price, then you look at all the other videos from various producers on the market.

  19. Fair enough. I hope you find what you’re looking for, and I hope you come back if it happens to be us that provides it next time.

    FYI: for what it’s worth, there is more skin in Stormy Tempest: Prisoner in the Present. No combat or punching, but more skin on display.

    Thanks for your support and for giving us a try!

    What Shakeshift and CultRetro say boils down to textbook niche marketing. There’s room for both Wal-Mart and Saks Fifth Avenue. Wal-Mart envies Saks’ margins just as Saks wishes it had Wal-Mart’s sales volume. They can both dream, but they know neither can come true.

    I’ve always felt that the important thing is to have a vision of what you like and make that. In this case, make movies you’d want to watch yourself. Sure, there’s some crossover and customers who have to choose between them. But I think the number of those customers is small.

    Therefore, what’s important is for each to produce its type of movie. Adding new wrinkles is fine, but making wholesale changes confuses customers as to what you’re doing and undermines the work you’ve already done. If you want to do something different, my advice — for what that’s worth — is to start a new website. You already have covered many setup costs and have the know-how. If it works out, great. If not, at least you still have your original customer base.

  21. My first purchase from Cultretro. After seeing the trailer I thought to myself “wow, this could actually be my favorite superheroine movie”. It had everything I look for. blows to the stomach, female vs female, a sexy costume, LOW BLOWS (even though it was just one) and most importantly, the beautiful heroine taking a serious beating with very little chance of winning.

    Unfortunately, this video fell short from that, but nonetheless it was still a good purchase. I really liked the story and the action. THE ACTION WAS GREAT. Very well thought out, and one thing I realized that I hardly see from most of these movies is that this one has HEART. The way it was filmed, the storyline, dialogue, action sequences, all that. Very well done and thought out. I loved how stormy puts up that shield and Blaze is so powerful that her blast breaks right through hitting stormy and sending her into the fallen log, great scene.

    My complaint? This might be blasphemy for the producers and probably some fans, but my complaint was Stormy’s reaction, to many things. The blast for one, I just expected a much stronger cry from stormy after the shield breaking and the blast send her into the log. The low blow could have been better but honestly it was very well done, especially for her since that was a first. I was impressed. Another scene i was let down by her reactions was when she was lying on the ground getting kicked in the stomach repeatedly, I love kicks to the stomach but I just wasnt feeling Stormy’s reactions, she didnt have that “wind knocked out” moan that you expect to have, I also imagined that after every kick the next one would hurt her more and more, but that didnt show judging by her reactions. My last disappointment was the big kick to the stomach to Stormy while she was on all fours. I loved the way it was shot, built up well letting us know that this kick is gonna HURT. But yet again Stormy just took it and immediately fainted??? The kick reminded me of the original Mortal Kombat movie when Kano kicks Sonya hard in the stomach while shes on all fours, it was a huge hit much like this one, and I was expecting Stormy’s painful reaction to be much like Sonya’s if not better, but sadly there was no reaction, the blow knocked stormy unconscious:( I stillgive this video an overall 8/10. I was just hoping it would be my first 10/10 rating. Please dont take this negatively, I understand other people could be ok with her reactions unlike me but I am just voicing my thoughts. I really liked what I saw for the most part, I can tell you guys put a lot of heart and soul into this one and I love that. I hardly see it from other producers, it was very clear here. I look forward to more Stormy going through hell videos like this one. Just hope her reactions are more on par.

  22. Stagger Lee

    I’ll definitely buy this one. CultRetro is one of the best studios around today and it’s because NO ONE can touch them on storylines or acting. It’s always fantastic, and this looks like it might be their best video yet.

  23. @Fabio:
    Thanks for giving us a shot and for the very specific feedback, which is good. No articulate feedback from a customer is ever blasphemy. Here’s a very specific reply…

    There are three factors at work with your issues, I think. One is the “NGC reason”: All of this was shot in one day, so we only get so much time to fit everything in and we are forced to pick our battles and let some things slide that we wish we could fix but don’t have the time to and blahblahblah.

    The second reason is that there are many, many, many blows struck in this film and not all of them are devastating. I know some of those you listed as being important to you, I considered to be relatively minor blows in the context of the battle going on around them. Either something worse had already happened, or something worse was about to happen, so we chose to dial down the reaction. This is a judgement call and we’ll win some and loose some since we can’t emphasize them all. Hopefully we win more than we loose.

    The other factor goes back to balancing art and commercial success. I know that women writhing in pain is part of this equation and if I would get onboard with that and embrace it we’d be RICH, I TELL YOU, RICH!!!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!… but it’s not a part that we will frequently focus on for stylistic reasons. Again this is a personal thing, but in my mind a superheroine does not actually whine and cry and whimper… EVER… no matter how beaten she gets.

    Stormy is destroyed on multiple occassions here, and we try to get her to react enough to sell the impact and pain of the blows in that moment, but this does NOT break her spirit and does NOT turn her into a whiny little bitch. When Bruce Willis gets his ass kicked he doesn’t start crying and whimpering and rolling in the dirt. Neither does Stormy. She shakes it off and struggles to rise. She fights and holds on for as long as her endurance allows, and it takes a knock out blow (several, in fact) to get her to stay down… and even then she’ll get right back into the fight the second she wakes up until she either wins, gets knocked out again, the bad guy escapes, or she is killed. Anything less is not a superheroine in my book.

    That Kano/Sonya kick… if you’ll recall she WASN’T writhing in pain. She was exaggerating, acting more vulnerable than she actually was to lure him in for a counterattack… because Sonya is a good heroine also. :)

    All that said, I agree that I would have preferred to see more of a progressive “exhaustion” in some of our individual sequences. I think we achieved it throughout the film as a whole and it’s clear that the battle has taken a serious toll on her as things the sequences unfold, but there are multiple fights and not all of them follow that progression internally as well as we intended. We will try to address that during the upcoming “Death of Stormy Tempest” storyline.

    Thanks again for your support!

  24. I have always followed the trailers and write ups of this series but never been tempted enough to buy anything until now because I’ve always felt there wasn’t enough of what I like, namely combat and SH beatdown. This is the first I’ve bought and it was excellent. If future episodes continue along the same lines then I’ll be making more purchases. The only thing missing for me in this were a few more face slaps because I think that’s the ultimate humialition for a SH.

  25. “Stormy is destroyed on multiple occassions here, and we try to get her to react enough to sell the impact and pain of the blows in that moment, but this does NOT break her spirit and does NOT turn her into a whiny little bitch. When Bruce Willis gets his ass kicked he doesn’t start crying and whimpering and rolling in the dirt. Neither does Stormy. She shakes it off and struggles to rise.

Anything less is not a superheroine in my book.”

    Agree completely with this philosophy. That’s what the superheroine genre should be and there is a certain way a superheroine should be portrayed. If you just want to see a girl get repeatedly hit with low blows and cry and roll around, there might be other places for to find videos for that. What I want is a superheroine battling against the odds but trying to remain as defiant as possible and holding her own until the cards are stacked too high and she loses. But no whimpering or begging for mercy or crying.

  26. If I may speak for Fabio here (and I can’t), I think what he meant was not whimpering or crying — I hate that too — but more realistic “pain” reactions. I liked the video but also thought she didn’t sell the impacts, and increasing exhaustion, as well as she might have.

  27. Just curious… did you guys watch the Damsel in Distress version or the Cinematic version? The Cinematic uses the BEST cuts and the BEST reactions at a tighter pace, whereas the Extended version uses just about everything we shot even if it’s not as good. The script might have called for one good kick to the face but we probably filmed it 5 or 6 times. I only used the BEST one in the Cinematic version, but i tried to use almost ALL of them in the Extended version.

    Our logic here was that some people would prefer to see as much as possible (even if it was just “ok”) rather than have us throw it away never to be seen again. So there are some admittedly mediocre shots in the Extended version and the pacing is not as tight.

    I’m guessing that some of the shots you are referring to I probably ALSO thought were mediocre and I probably cut them out of the Cinematic. Personally I will always think the Cinematic version of the film is better, since that is the movie that I intended to make to start with. But the Extended version seems to be most popular. Maybe the Cinematic cut would be more to your liking?

    If you two want to participate in an experiment I’ll offer Bob and Fabio free downloads of the Cinematic version if you’ll agree to post a quick comparison of the two versions here and let folks know which you prefer. Or let people know that you don’t care for either one.. whatever floats your boat. Drop me an email if you two guys want to play.

  28. @Bob you are allowed to speak for me whenever the fuck you want from now on because that is EXACTLY what I meant. I also hate whimpering and crying. It just ruins the movie for me. I in fact will not buy if I know the heroine isnt defiant, I love that. Trying to stay strong even when she knows she cant take much more. But being defiant doesn’t mean she can suppress the pain and act like it barely hurt all the time. Honestly I love how you guys portray Stormy, a perfect attitude for a heroine, but I just personally love to see THAT type of heroine being pushed to the brink of destruction, go through something she has never experienced before, new to her, a serious beating. Does not mean I like whimpering and crying. I look forward to the Death of Stormy Tempest, I hope its alot like this video or even better.

    Also I am willing to praticipate I will send you an email.

  29. Hmmm…. sounds like a matter of degrees then? Perhaps we didn’t go far enough for your tastes. In that case I don’t think the Cinematic version is going to help you any. I think it’s a higher “quality” fight with a better pace, but there is less of it. Less abuse, less blows, less beating, less writhing in pain…. higher quality stuff remains, but there is likely less of the stuff that you like to see.

    But who knows? That’s what makes it an experiment! I’ll look for your email.

    We’re filming with a new heroine (The Scarlet Scorpion!) tomorrow, so if I disappear until Sunday, that’s the reason.

  30. Gorleser

    Not too much constructive criticism from me, just… wow, that was great. Never seen the multiple angles/slow-motion. Great story, actresses, plot, camera work, editing– and terrific peril! Will definitely be buying these in the future.

  31. Fantasizer

    This is one of the best superheroine peril movies I have seen, in terms of what happens in the video. Including what I can see, and hear as well – The “Aah”s and the other moans are great.

    This movie has a much longer run time than previous CultReto movies. And as CultRetro movies have always been to me, the longer the better!

    There are some topics of debate going on here… Just casting my preference (no offense to other fetishes):
    1) The costume – I like the moderately high-cut costume, with skin coloured tights (or no tights).
    2) Her reaction to peril – I like her ‘brave’ spirit no matter how much she gets beaten.
    3) The relative quickness of the knockouts – I LOVE that!
    So to me, this video has achieved ALL of these things!!

    I once asked you in a CultReto related thread (which I cannot locate now) on your website, whether you can do a very similar movie with a different actress + superheroine (for a change). You said you will be working on another FemForce character… I think it was Yankee Girl. Hope that is still on your roadmap. I am sure you won’t loose any of the StormyTempest / CultRetro fans if you make movies that have all these attributes, only with a different actress / character. It will add more variation & excitement!

    Keep up the great work!!!

  32. Photos of The Scarlet Scorpion are up on our site now. We just filmed her origin last weekend and plan to film more this fall. She will also bounce back and forth between victories and defeats in an ongoing, episodic story similar to the Stormy series. Most of our heroines (like Stormy) have so far been trained and experienced warriors. The new Scarlet Scorpion is a rookie; she has a great deal of power but she has no idea what to do with it. She does not know the extent of her own abilities, how they work, or in what ways she is vulnerable. She has to learn all of this the hard way.

    We had big plans for MetalGypsy to be Yankee Girl but her career has really taken off lately, which is awesome. If anyone has the skills for it and deserves to be a professional dance performer it’s her. However this also means that Yankee Girl probably won’t happen any time soon. MetalGypsy still wants to do it, we still want her to do it, we’ll just have to wait and see how the timing works out.

    Thanks for your support!

  33. Sidekick

    1. Any girl that goes by the name Cat is always good looking and that’s obviously true here.

    2. I think this has been mentioned a time or two on the CR website and I’ll add my voice. Nicola Rae would make a fantastic villainess based on her acting ability alone.
    But the fact that she’s a foot taller than say some of the Angel Avengers makes her ideal for the “unstoppable enforcer” role that has been discussed a lot around recently. I would love see something like that.

  34. Nicola Rae (as Dr. Zorn) will trash the Blue Bulleteer in a very one-sided “beatdown” if everything goes as planned. It should be similar to the Blaze episode. This project is in pre-production for filming in January.

  35. Question @Cult Retro

    Love the Blue Bulleteer!!

    Will her costume be Leo with the slit/short skirt over or just leo? Anything BUT the lame shorts costume!!

    Just a suggestion. Love your work!!

  36. I’m confused… There has been a different Bulleteer costume in every movie. Which film had the one that you do not like? As far as I’m aware we would be using the costume from Sorcerer’s Eye and the Photo Comic. And the Nightveil costume briefly as well.

  37. The “Captured by the Cloak” episode had the costume which I did not like.
    Just thought it was too tame. She still looks great in it, but much prefer
    the others.

    Again, just a suggestion! Keep up the great work!!

  38. That one is retired, and yes, it was lame. That was April 2007 I think? We had no costume-maker at the time and our standards were much lower (somewhere around non-existent). The red cloak from that outfit is now Clayton the Sleeper’s hood.

    That was long before we figure out how to shoot action scenes in a short timeframe, which is why we want to give the Bulleteer another shot. We’ve never really seen her in combat the way we do it now. Also Maria departed right when Nicola Rae showed up and we’ve always wanted to see our two fan-favorites together… preferably beating the hell out of each other. :)

  39. Hi Cult Retro,

    A note on Nicloa Rae as a villainess: I always feel the villainess has to have a rougher, more “thuggish” look than the heroine, and that is what I like so much about the current Stormy Tempest villain. She is large and imposing, and not exactly perfect in shape. It feels more threatening somehow. I’m just wondering if Nicola can translate the same way.

    I personally prefer the villain to be not as attractive as the heroine, and to be larger and more imposing. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

  40. Nicola Rae towers over Maria (the Bulleteer) by more than a foot, so “larger and more imposing” is definitely covered. Maria has a very lean, athletic build and Nicola is voluptuous, so some people might argue that Nicola is also “less perfect in shape”. I would argue that those people are idiots, but each to his own. :) Nicola’s personality will be monsterous and we’ll make her scary and intimidating, but it would be a disservice to her fans to distort her good looks. She’ll probably wear heavier makeup or something, but we still want her to look glamorous.

    Autumn (the actress that plays Velocity Blaze) has lost nearly 60 lbs since we filmed ST:VB with her last January. She will look much different when you see her next as well.

    I do not know if you’ve planned it, but in the future I would like to see a history of Ms.Vcitory and a heroine who really like femforce comics

  42. As soon as we meet an actress that can pull off Ms. Victory we’ll make a real Femforce movie. Everything between now and then is just practice.

  43. “As soon as we meet an actress that can pull off Ms. Victory we’ll make a real Femforce movie. Everything between now and then is just practice.”

    Ok, THAT is what I’ve been waiting to hear for a really long time. Until then, I am so looking forward to Maria as Blue Bulleteer in a new video. You guys have improved a lot since her last movie. Her looks and talent and your increasing ability equals potential awesomeness.

  44. @cultretro

    femforce movie would be fantastic, but I think we should meet several actresses to be some of the heroines and villains but a film that would surely draw attention.

    But if it got too complicated to do, I would not see a problem in Ms.Victory solo adventure.
