Review: "Hal DVD/Blu-ray Combi (UK Edition)": Do Androids Dream Of Human Girlfriends?

hal-10

I first became aware of Wit Studio’s Hal last year, shortly after its Japanese premiere. Just a few months later I got a chance to talk to director Ryotaro Makihara, which only whet my curiosity about the film further. Just shy of a year later I am finally able to sample the film itself. Was […]

Review: "Gurren Lagann Ultimate Edition Blu-ray (UK Edition)": Well met, fellows!

GURRENHEAD

Ah, Gurren Lagann. Arguably the jewel of the 2007 anime schedule and a show that seven years on still receives a lot of love and converts. It seemed that when the show was originally airing you couldn’t stop people from praising it. If you’re familiar with my reviews, you’ll know I often talk about the […]

Review: "Sleeping Beauty" Diamond Edition

SleepingBeauty2014_14

It is fitting that the last film of Disney’s early golden era should also be its crown jewel and so it is with 1959’s Sleeping Beauty, a late but ideal choice for Disney’s Diamond Edition line. These days a lot of digital ink gets spilled about Disney’s “princess movies” as if they were a genre onto […]

mrps1

The Blu-ray and DVD discs for this spring’s “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” are due to arrive tomorrow and although the movie did decent enough at the box office, the real draw for the Blu-ray and DVD versions are the extras which give out some nice golden nuggets from the show’s origin on “The Rocky & […]

Jack And His Cuckoo Clock Heart Coming To Blu-ray And DVD Next Week

jack2

With an animation style shout-out to Tim Burton, the animated French film “Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart” has Jack as a boy living in 1874 Edinburgh who has been given a cuckoo clock heart due to the fact that he was born on the coldest day on Earth – an event which caused his […]

Review: "Attack on Titan" Pt. 1 - Titanic Successes with Towering Flaws

Attack on Titan Eren vs. Colossal Titan

Attack on Titan became a buzzword that broke out of anime fandom rapidly, attracting a lot of attention from general audiences. However, I’m left with very mixed feelings after watching the first 13 episodes on FUNimation’s Attack on Titan Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. On the one hand, the series quickly creates a richly detailed world infused […]

sou1

Now that everybody knows how many times they have officially killed Kenny [97], the release of the 17th season of “South Park” on Blu-ray and DVD can proceed in an orderly fashion without much controversy – or at least roughly the same amount of controversy that a season of “South Park” usually generates. Actually, Season […]
