"The Space Sentinels": Filmation's Mythological Trio Return on DVD

Nostalgia trips are a double-edged sword. Putting it slightly more pretentiously, one can only look to the past, with the eyes of the present. Adding even more ostentatiously to that, we can never recapture that magic of our youth — merely skim the surface of our memories. To add the icing to this rather pompous-looking […]

Edible "Oedipus": Classic Animated Short Comes to DVD

Destiny is a funny old thing. It can bring a fountain of joy, a shower of love, a well of happiness, a bucket of mirth…. and so forth. Of course, destiny can equally damn you to murder your father, marry your mother, endure a sister as your daughter and once again – and so forth. […]

"Harvey Birdman": A "Genie"us Return To Form

It’s not an all too rare thing to see a series go slowly down the drain. In fact, it seems to be part and parcel of television; waiting for that tragic moment when one’s favorite show starts to trip, slip and then proceed to full on tumble right into the gaping chasm of cancellation canyon. […]

Ahhhhh.” [Real elegant. -Ed] For those as vaguely acquainted with Flash Gordon as the mainstream media, a little background seems appropriate. […]

Out of Steam? Not a Ghost of a Chance!

A much belated review thanks to some personal physical distress to my hands. Irrelevant as this may seem to you dear reader, it offers me a perfect lead in to my opening for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG Volume 5. Imagine cybernetics becoming so physically integrated that the only aspect of […]

Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining: "Final Fantasy: Advent Children"

Final Fantasy: Advent Children—it’s been a long time coming. Finally, the fantasy has become reality. It’s here. Excuse the awesomely pretentious introduction, but I must confess, I am a massive fan of Final Fantasy VII and I never believed we’d ever get to see a sequel. Nevertheless, please don’t let these trembling hands holding this […]

"Harvey Birdman" Still Funny, But Shows Formula

Harvey Birdman is back! For a Brit starved of his Birdman since returning from the US last year, a chance to get to see three new episodes is one that requires no hesitation. To my delight we have a show that remains as good as ever. And that’s precisely its problem. I “discovered” Harvey Birdman […]
