This is the second year the festival did the exhibit and competition, which they call Storyscapes; it is all about how movies may evolve and become more interactive and more immersive.

Tezuka Osamu Manga Museum Online

He is called the God of Manga because he not only wrote some of the most iconic Manga of all time, including Astro Boy, but he basically invented the system of Manga and Anime creation and marketing in use to this day. Earlier this month Google opened up an online version of the Tezuka Osamu […]

Something to Do: Movies

We get The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on the big screen this week, with all that excellent spidey action and banter we have come to expect.

Something to Do: Movies

There are two choices that could be fun this weekend; The Machine is about two engineers working to create an autonomous AI to help mankind (and specifically one scientist’s daughter).
