The Dark Knight Returns Deluxe Edition Blu-ray Thumbnail

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Society is in decay. All of the public institutions have failed, crime runs rampant, and everything has gone to hell. There’s only one man who can save us! And his name is (fill in the blank). That’s the basic plot of The Dark Knight Returns. I don’t […]

Review: "Frozen" - Disney Marketing, Meet Me at Camera 2

thumb-frozen

Quick, someone tell me what Disney’s new animated movie Frozen is about.  If you said, “a wacky, slapstick adventure through a snowy place that somehow involves a woman who can freeze things, a lunkhead with a sled, and a talking snowman called Olaf,” congratulations: you’ve seen any/all of the ads that Disney has made for […]

NekoCon 2013: Steve Blum

NekoCon 2013

Prolific voice actor Steve Blum was one of the feature guests at Nekocon 2013 in Hampton, Virginia. This article covers his Sunday afternoon Q&A session, since he had several throughout the con. Blum proved to be a wonderful guest, taking multiple requests from the audience for lines spoken in the voices of many of the […]

NekoCon 2013: The Wrapup and Photo Gallery

NekoCon 2013

Wow, it’s already been more than two weeks since Nekocon ended? Time does fly sometimes. So where was I at last update? Friday, right. Well I doubt it comes as any surprise that the feature event of Saturday was the Jonathan Coulton concert. It was a lot of fun, though surprisingly not safe for work. […]

NekoCon 2013 Friday/Saturday: Who Ordered the Squalls?

NekoCon 2013

No, not the Final Fantasy VII character, actual rain/wind lines. It’s very very wet down here. Surprisingly so, since theoretically it wasn’t supposed to rain today. But regardless of the weather, it’s an anime con, so that makes it all good. And, this being an anime con, there’s lots of things related to anime, and […]

Review: "Monsters University" Blu-ray - If Only Real College Was This Great

splash-monstersuniversity

Let’s gets this out of the way right off the bat. Is Monsters University and good as Monsters Inc? No, but that’s kinda like asking “Is Miguel Cabrera as great as Babe Ruth?” One is incredible, and one is amongst the greatest of all time. With that out of the way, Monsters University is a […]

The Concerts of Otakon 2013

Otakon2013

TM Revolution.  Home Made Kazouku.  Chiaki Ishikawa.  Yoko Kanno. Each one of those artists could headline a convention in and of themselves, and this past summer Otakon featured all of them.  Saturday’s headlining concert at the Baltimore Arena had Home Made Kazoku and TM Revolution doing full sets, while Sunday saw Chiaki Ishikawa and Yoko […]

Review: "The Little Mermaid" Diamond Edition - Everything You May or May Not Have Loved, Now in High-Def.

thumb-littlemermaidde

So, Disney has re-released The Little Mermaid, this time on Blu-Ray. It looks gorgeous, from a technical standpoint at least. However, this is the part that will probably get me a lot of angry letters: it’s a great presentation of a very average movie. *braces for the torches and pitchforks* Everyone had their shot? *ducks* […]

Review: "Wander Over Yonder" Worth the Trip

thumb-wanderoveryonder2

Some shows have a great big high-minded purpose with massive casts and a sprawling epic story with dozens of intersecting plotlines. And some shows are Wander Over Yonder, where there’s just two main characters (so far anyway) and they mostly exist to make themselves laugh. Those two main characters are Wander, a happy-go-lucky guy who […]

MasaoMaruyama

Perennial Otakon guest Masao Maruyama returned to the convention once again in 2013 to do several Q&A sessions. This panel in particular centered on his work with his new production studio, MAPPA.  The panel opened with a total of three videos, two of which I can talk about: a tribute to the late Satoshi Kon […]
