"Gantz" Complete Series: Lots of Sound and Fury, But Does It Signify Anything?

Like David Fincher’s adaptation of Fight Club, the anime series Gantz is a remarkably challenging, deliberately provocative, and deeply flawed work that uses lowest-common-denominator entertainment to deliver highbrow messages. Also like Fight Club, one of the things I like about Gantz is how unsure I was whether I liked it or not after I finished […]

"The Illusionist": Sylvain Chomet's Beautiful, Melancholy Ambiguity

All film is an illusion. Persistence of vision is the illusion that still images projected at 24 frames a second are actually moving, while suspension of disbelief is the illusion that shadows on a wall are as real as what we see and experience every day. Like the best stage magicians, great film can compel […]

"Super Hero Squad" Vol 4: This DVD, This Season Finale!

With volume 4, Shout! Factory wraps up season 1 of The Super Hero Squad Show, and if the results don’t quite hit the loopy heights of the previous volume, it’s only because the show has found a comfortable, high-quality groove that mixes up standard super heroics with madcap slapstick. This also means that when surprises […]
