Iron Sky (2012)

 

A hard to find comic called Captain Gravity by Penny Farthing Press. A Rocketeer rip off to be sure but still a good read. I know its not a movie but its all i can think of.

It occurs to me that the Fu Manchu films particularly with Christopher Lee are good ones. He plans on using a poison from seeds of the black hill poppy in one that can wipe out all life provided the temperature is below freezing and in another uses a transmitter to broadcast energy to destroy targets while kidnapping the daughters of scientists who he then blackmails into helping him set up the energy projector/transmitter.

Lee's Fu Manchu never has a problem with his daughter Lin Tang played by Tsai Chin. She is always wearing normal clothes and nothing scanty while Fu Manchu is always wearing robes and just speaks elegance.

Second Hand Lions is full of pulpy adventure in its flashback sequences.

 

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

The RDJ Sherlock Holmes films maybe?

Captain America: The First Avenger

Spectre (1977 tv movie)...very pulpy even though it doesn't take place in the pulp era

Just to let you know, ZONE TROOPERS was a low budget film made in 1985 ( I believe ). But the script and direction make it look like a 40s-50s movie -- it is one of my all time favorite B movies.

 

Trancers (1985) made by the same company, and with some of the same stars, has a Pulp feel especially in the beginning despite being a Time Travel movie.
