Review: “Tokyo Ravens Part 2” – Chasing the Light

by macattackon December 8, 2015
NOTE: This review spoils the first half of Tokyo Ravens. Also, although she’ll likely never read this, I would like to apologize to composer Maiko Iuchi for mistaking her as male in my earlier reviews of her work. I enjoyed the first half of Tokyo Ravens immensely, despite the mixed bag in quality I have […]

Review: “BlazBlue: Alter Memory” Fails to Ignite

by macattackon December 2, 2015
Sometimes it is hard to sum up something in just one sentence. BlazBlue: Alter Memory made it all too easy, and not in a good way. You can’t please everybody, but BlazBlue fails to please anyone at all. BlazBlue has an interesting narrative concept, based on the best-selling fighting video game series. It is a […]

Review: “Mobile Suit Gundam Part 1 (UK Edition)”: Gundam Calling To The Faraway Towns

by Grant Whiteon November 30, 2015
My name is Grant and I’m a fan of Gundam (how my family wishes they could just say I’m an alcoholic), although being one in the UK hasn’t been easy. While beez Entertainment released various titles back in the day, we never saw the push that markets like America got. That is looking to change, […]

Review: “The Good Dinosaur” – Pixar Made a Darn Good Movie

by Weathermanon November 30, 2015
2015 is certainly a banner year, gifting us with not one but two Pixar films, along with the rest of the year’s animated output. Inside/Out already conquered the box office over the summer, while Universal’s Minions and Sony’s Hotel Transylvania 2 also met with blockbuster ticket sales, so does that leave any room for Pixar’s […]

Shaun the Sheep Movie

Review: “Shaun the Sheep Movie” – Worthwhile Woolgathering

by Ed Liuon November 27, 2015
Aardman’s Shaun the Sheep has come a long way since his breakout debut in the Wallace & Gromit short film “A Close Shave,” earning his own TV series (which itself spawned a spin-off) and now his own feature film, Shaun the Sheep Movie (which seems like it’s missing a “the” somewhere). I found that the […]

by James Harveyon November 24, 2015

This Skylanders Superchargers review covers the PS4 edition. With an increasingly crowded competitive […]

Review: “Wanna Be the Strongest in the World” Doesn’t Aim High Enough

by Chad Boninon November 23, 2015
The world of idols: very competitive. The world of wrestling: very competitive. Both are heavily manufactured and are more about flash and style, but do require some talent. Singers need to at least hit a certain note and pitch, and wrestlers need to be able to withstand and dish out some amount of torment. Japanese […]
Guardians of the Galaxy Can't Fight This Seedling

Review: “Guardians of the Galaxy” Animated Series – Let’s Blow Stuff Up!

by Gervaise B-Aon November 20, 2015
Guardians of the Galaxy has become an extremely popular franchise for Marvel following the hit movie from summer of 2014. Marvel wants to keep the hype going, with a sequel on the way in 2017, a full slate of merchandising, various comic book series, and a new animated series based on the intergalactic ragtag group […]

Shaun the Sheep Farmer's Llamas

Review: “Shaun the Sheep: The Farmer’s Llamas” – Wild, Wooly Slapstick

by Ed Liuon November 13, 2015
I wonder what flaw in the general American public is keeping Aardman Animations from being far more popular than they are on these shores. It’s clearly not a flaw in their work in general, since the Wallace & Gromit shorts and feature film were all terrific, and even if Flushed Away, Arthur Christmas, and Pirates: […]

Published in 1923, the book tells the tale of a prophet named Mustafa who has been living abroad in exile for stirring up radical ideas with his works and teachings. As he walks toward a ship to take him home, he […]
