Neon Genesis Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo Thumbnail

Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo is a very difficult movie to approach.  The third of four movies in the Rebuild of Evangelion project, 3.0 drops a viewer directly into the middle of a rescue operation at the edge of the atmosphere involving everyone’s favorite unpleasant red head, Asuka Langley, and a large ship manned […]

Review: "Good Luck Girl" - Feelin' Lucky, Anime Fan?

vlcsnap-2014-01-11-22h08m33s239

The term “born lucky” has been around for a long time, so it’s kind of amazing no anime series has attempted to take the term and run with it to its natural conclusion: that being born lucky will somehow decide the fate of the world. Finally, one anime has, and that is Good Luck Girl! Good […]

Review: "Chozen" Yields More Hilarious Shock Comedy on FX

Chozen

Right from the first episode, FX’s Archer won me over with its astonishingly transgressive sense of humor, its superb cast, and the occasional surprise when the show reveals that it has a much warmer heart than the surface crassness would suggest (usually right before the transgressive sense of humor kicked in again). So, the good […]

Review: 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Season 2: The Mutation Situation' UK Premiere

thumb-tmnts2

Back in late 2012 I had the privilege to review ‘Rise of the Turtles’, the two part opener to Nickelodeon’s revived take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The past year has seen the show enjoy great ratings and toy sales on both sides of the Atlantic. I’ve stuck by the show and although it’s been […]

Review: "Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail" Deserves to Be Followed

Black Lagoon Roberta's Blood Trail

The anime makes a several diversions for the better from the manga source material, with the biggest centering on Rock, the meek Japanese salaryman who abandoned his unfulfilling career at the start of the series to join the Lagoon Company. In the original manga, Rock was largely a bystander nearly ground up by the bloody […]

Review: "Tenchi Muyo! War On Geminar" - No Need For Kenshi?

Tenchi Muyo War on Geminar

All the girls love him, with most wanting to take advantage of both his body and his unnatural superpowers. He’s a sweet and kind guy, although a little oblivious, and is thrust into a world he doesn’t understand. His name is Tenchi Masaki- wait, no… this is about Kenshi Masaki, Tenchi’s half-brother. Kenshi has been […]

Electromagnetism is a funny thing. It can attract and repel with equal power depending on how you use it. A Certain Scientific Railgun is a companion piece to A Certain Magical Index, centering on Mikoto “Zapper” Misaka, who is blessed/cursed with an incredible amount of electromagnetic power as one of the only 5th level espers […]

Review: "Towanoquon" - A Fascinating and Successful Experiment

Towanoquon Towa No Quon Thumbnail

Towanoquon is another entry in a increasingly popular trend in Japanese animation: take what would be a 12-13 episode anime series and turn it into six short theatrical films (45-50 minutes in length) released every month or so. The music gets a budget boost, the backgrounds get more detail, better-known voice actors are cast, and […]

Review: Is A Budget "Irresponsible Captain Tylor" Irresponsible?

The Irrepressible Captain Tylor

Captain Justy Ueki Tylor might be the most unassuming man in the United Planets Space Force. He may not know regulations when it comes to uniforms, he may actively run from a fight, and he might even have a few relations with the opposing Raalgon Empire. Stuck with the decrepit vessel Soyokaze and an equally […]

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 […]
