Review: "Sailor Moon" A Moonlight Night's Dream or Nightmare?

by Chad Boninon November 27, 2014

Review: "Road To Ninja: Naruto the Movie" - The Road to a Vital Shonen Film

by macattackon November 25, 2014
Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie is the ninth theatrical film depicting the characters of the Naruto franchise. It’s hard to believe, considering the diminishing returns of the theatrical films since the beginning of the Shippuden films. The last two movies, The Lost Tower and Blood Prison, didn’t even earn back their budgets in Japan. […]

Review: "Princess Mononoke" Blu-ray - The Indispensable Mythic Movie

by Todd "GWOtaku" DuBoison November 24, 2014
Rarely has the wait for high definition treatment been longer and more worthwhile than for Princess Mononoke. This is the most distinct film in Hayao Miyazaki’s illustrious oeuvre, and surely a contender for his very greatest if only because of the many layers there are to it.

Review: "Naruto Triple Feature" - Sharp Visuals, Dull Plotting

by macattackon November 20, 2014
The Naruto manga has come to a close and the anime adaptation probably won’t continue forever, but it is still hard to believe that the franchise has existed for this long. Over the decade-plus run since the manga and anime premiered, many theatrical films based on the universe have been manufactured. With the older, Shippuden-era incarnations […]

The Wind Rises

Review: "The Wind Rises" Blu-ray - A Beautiful Mind

by Neo Yion November 19, 2014
When he was young, Hayao Miyazaki would spend his childhood days in his father’s factory, a manufacturer of war plane parts. Fascinated by the intricate design of the flying machines, Miyazaki would carry his lifelong obsession with them for decades to come, tellingly incorporating flight prominently into his films. The Wind Rises feels like a […]

Dragon Ball Z Battle of Gods

Review: "Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods" Your Wish Will Not Be Granted

by Chad Boninon November 14, 2014
Nothing can keep a good Saiyan down. Majin Buu has been defeated, Goku’s alive, and all is right in the world. That’s a very boring scenario for warriors, and a birthday party for good friends is still not a fight; eating cake and playing bingo doesn’t get the blood pumping. Thankfully, the God of Destruction, […]
