Review: "Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion Season One (UK Edition)": BRITANNIA RULES THE WORLD!

by Grant Whiteon March 14, 2013
Code Geass arguably needs no introduction. Equal parts famous and infamous, it was the surprise hit of the 2006 season. Overseas licensing quickly followed, including volume releases from Beez Entertainment. With that Bandai subsidiary sadly no longer with us, Kaze has obtained the license and is releasing the show in two complete season sets. In […]

Review: "The Mystical Laws" Hasn't a Prayer

by Maxie Zeuson March 11, 2013
The Mystical Laws is a movie so bad–a movie that gets so many things wrong–that it passes through mere incompetence to emerge in that fairy tale world inhabited by Plan 9 From Outer Space and Batman Forever. Don’t let its initially professional sheen mislead you. This is a movie that creeps toward insanity on soft […]

Review: "Gintama The Movie" (UK Edition): Ever Feel Like You Missed A Dynasty?

by Grant Whiteon March 7, 2013
We’re quite fortunate to live in a time when the licensing of Japanese shows is pretty consistent. Although the ‘anime bubble’ may have popped, pretty much every good show and movie that comes out of the country gets a licensed release overseas. However, this isn’t always the case, and some popular works get tied up […]

Review: "My Little Pony: Pinkie Pie Party" and "Chuck & Friends: When Trucks Fly" Are More Fun from the Hub

by Ed Liuon March 4, 2013
The latest My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic DVD, Pinkie Pie Party, collects 5 more episodes of the Hub’s breakout hit show, centering on the perpetually cheerful, slightly off-kilter Pinkie Pie. Taken from across the show’s three seasons to date, all five episodes are quite good and manage to maintain the theme (not always true […]

Review: "Hotel Transylvania" Needs a "Do Not Disturb" Sign

by Maxie Zeuson February 28, 2013
Hotel Transylvania was directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, and if this movie is Genndy Tartakovsky pouring out his bountiful imagination, creativity and energy, I’d hate to see what happens when he’s just collecting a pay check. Hotel Transylvania is trite, predictable, boring, and why am I even writing about it, because it’s not worth bothering over, […]

Review: "Is This A Zombie?" Is a Delicious Genre Stew

by KarlOlsonon February 27, 2013
Let’s be real for a moment. It’s 2013, and zombies and zombie humor have become so culturally rampant that even complaining about their over exposure is itself a bit trite and played out. So, if you’re in the “not another freakin’ zombie-related thing” camp, just leave. In fact, if you can’t handle healthy dose of […]

Review: "Ghastly Prince Enma-Kun" Complete Series: The '70s Are Back. Joy?

by Dr. Daedaluson February 25, 2013
Remember the 2004 Cutie Honey OAV?  It was something of a nostalgic throwback to the ’70s TV series, a lot more wacky than the gritty mid-90s OAVs and blending retro and modern designs.  Well, Ghastly Prince Enma Burning Up is a similar kind of thing.  I haven’t seen the original series, but based on this […]

Review: "Strawberry Shortcake": This Scratch and Sniff Doesn't Smell Like Berries

by Ed Liuon February 22, 2013
In defending My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic from detractors, show creator Lauren Faust wrote: On TV, though, I couldn’t tell one girl character from another and they just had endless tea parties, giggled over nothing and defeated villains by either sharing with them or crying–which miraculously inspired the villain to turn nice…Some of the […]

Review: "Slugterra: Return of the Shane Gang": Saddle Up With This Posse

by Ed Liuon February 20, 2013
I can enjoy the latest incarnations of DC or Marvel superheroes or revivals like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or G.I. Joe, but shows that strike out in new directions and create new properties are going to get a bit more critical slack just because they are creating something new. Disney TV animation has been […]
