“Choose Your Own Adventure Books are a series of children’s gamebooks where the reader assumes the role of the protagonist and makes choices that determine the main character’s actions and the plot’s outcome.

Choose Your Own Adventure Books were based upon a concept created by Edward Packard and were wildly popular throughout the 80’s and 90’s before kind of falling off the map.

Choose Your Own Adventure Books are a part of pop culture, so much so that it has led to a few lawsuits, most notably against Netflix regarding Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.

“The sword and sorcery genre has been a popular staple in the literary world. Fans all over the world have grown up reading some fascinating classics. However, when it came to movie adaptations, the success rate has not been the same. There have been some massive hits like Conan the Barbarian and Lord of the Rings trilogy, but there have been many others that failed to set the cash boxes jingling. Some of these commercial failures later went on to be regarded as cult classics, and people started appreciating them many years after their release. Overall, it has to be said that the genre has often been overlooked for more glamorous sci-fi content, but if explored properly, you will find some jewels in this genre.

Broadly speaking, the sword and sorcery genre is a subgenre of fantasy, and you have some key elements that make them stand out. For instance, you would have brave sword-wielding warriors, elements of magic, supernatural entities, and often, a fight between good and evil. In this video, we have compiled a list of some of the best sword and sorcery flicks that will certainly be worth your time!”

“Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., the freshman congressman who has repeatedly spread Donald Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, was apparently dismayed to learn that 4% of her state’s electorate said they “won’t even vote” in future elections due to that very “fraud.”
