"Appleseed": The Fantastic Tale of a Girl and Her Cyborg. And Lots of Bullets.

In contrast to American animated films, a large percentage of anime features are adaptations of popular Japanese comic books, or manga (and they say Hollywood has run out of ideas). Such adaptations make perfect sense, of course, because they supply a powerful brand name, loyal fan base and plenty of material for possible sequels. On […]

Largely unknown to the rest of the world, Japanese TV is full of goofball comedians who ham it […]

"The Batman" Vol. 1: Better Than Nothing

One thing I will say for The Batman Vol. 1 DVD: it’s much better than the [I]Justice League Unlimited: Saving The World DVD release.
