The Promised Neverland / Episode 6 Thoughts [Spoilers!] Episode 6 reveals a little more about the outside world, with the introduction of William Minerva and his books. Also, I think that this episode plays more on the fact that Emma and her friends are after all, just children dealing with something that is way bigger […]

Summary: Helloooo, Internet Land. Bitty here! Y’all… I might not be ready for this. I may be a former junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and very talented amateur pâtissier, but being a freshman on the Samwell University hockey team is a whole new challenge…

Qplayer: Critic for Fun

When it comes to flashy, high spectacle blockbusters rife with CGI and action sequences, there are some critics who will already approach the movie with a healthy bit of bias. “Where’s the compelling story? Where’s the fleshed out characters? Where’s the emotional tension?” are common cries of the newspaper and online critics for these films. […]

Laith's Ramblings

From the first trailer I’ve been excited for the live action interpretation of the cyberpunk manga series Gunnm. I found the old anime OAV to be enjoyable but not the greatest film when I watched it back in the 90s. The story universe ticks off so many of my likes that as long as they […]

Originally for the subtitle for this review, I was going to use “The Best Manga Adaptation Ever”, but that’s not true due to “Edge of Tomorrow” existing as well as the fact that it is really noy saying much considering that manga adaptations are about as likely to be solid films as an adaptation of […]

Well it wasn’t the Presidents Day weekend Hollywood was hoping for, nor was it the one it needed. In fact it was the lowest grossing President’s Day weekend in 15 years at the box office as holdovers and new entries failed to impress. Three big new releases were on the slate for the weekend all […]

I wanted to see Alita: Battle Angel from the second I saw the trailer.  It looked amazing. Except those eyes – Alita’s big giant eyes freaked me out but the rest of it was promising.  This is from director Robert Rodriguez who gave us From Dusk till Dawn, the series and Sin City but neither […]

Reviews for Alita: Battle Angel appeared online around ten days ago and one comment stuck with me: “never bet against James Cameron.” The visionary filmmaker has made a career out of taking on overly ambitious projects, being laughed at when they all receive massive budgets and then sure enough, they manage to outperform all expectations.

I’m afraid to see what is going to go on and the show actually scared me on quite a few occasions.

Hey all, Dani here. It’s Monday again, and that can only mean one thing. It is time for another manga review post. What is really amusing to me is the fact that I am getting so close to catching up on my manga review backlog…but right now is also round 5 of the Manga Madness […]

This is an award winning blog.  You know that.  And I suppose it’s purely natural.  I am the type of person that awards just seem to gravitate to.  And it’s happened again, recently.  Courtesy of Red Metal passing on his Sunshine Blogger Award to what seems like half the internet.  Including our not-so-humble private space […]

An incredibly entertaining sci-fi spectacle about what it means to be human in an inhumane world. After 2017’s Ghost in the Shell threatened to derail the future of Hollywood anime adaptations, Alita: Battle Angel is already one of 2019’s must-see films. Based on Yukito Kishiro’s Battle Angel Alita series of Japanese manga and anime about a disembodied female cyborg […]
