Something to Do: Movies

The two best choices this weekend are animated: Mamoru Hosoda’s The Boy and the Beast has won awards around the world and is nominated for still more of them. I can not wait to see this one, and would have already declared it the must see film for the weekend were it not for Zootopia. […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Of the few Western genre offerings this week, Lego Star Wars: Droid Tales definitely looks like the best choice, with Don Verdean coming in both second and last. Sadly, that is all I can find from Western TV and Movies.

Anime fares a little better, but only a little. Wizard Barristers: Complete Collection tells what […]

Tessa Violet: Sorry I’m Not Sorry

Tessa Violet was known as Meekakitty when she recorded I’ll Be Your Star Trek Girl and her video of the ALL CAPS classic Don’t Unplug Me. Now she has another instant classic with Sorry I’m Not Sorry under her own name, the fist track presented here, and I have to say I love her music. […]

VR: Special Delivery

Aardman Animations of Wallace and Gromit fame have put together their first VR presentation, Special Delivery. It was made for Google Spotlight Stories, who made this into one of their presentations and translated it into an app for Android and IOS Google Cardboard phones. Much like their Shaun the Sheep TV and Film programs this […]

Identicals Trailer

Identicals sounds like something from the mind of Philip K. Dick, with a series of near identical people taking over each others lives and leaving dead bodies in their wake, but it is written and directed by Simon Pummell. It has been making the Film Festival rounds for the last year, and will get a […]

The Jungle Book Big Game Trailer

The Jungle Book Big Game Trailer gives you an idea of where they are going with this latest iteration of Kipling’s masterpiece as well as a glimpse of the merged Live Action/CGI environment they will be building it in. Come April 15, I hope to be in the theaters for this one.

APOD: Two Black Holes Merge

When LIGO detected the gravity wave signature of two black holes merging, it inspired the Simulating eXtreme Spacetimes Project to create this simulation of the event as it would have appeared to human eyes, and post it online. The Astronomy Picture Of the Day site maintained by the folks at NASA then picked it up, […]

Something to Do: Movies

Studio Ghibli’s Only Yesterday and live action Gods of Egypt both hit the big screen this weekend. The 1991 animated classic Only Yesterday has finally been released in the US now, 25 years after the rest of the world got to see it, and is filled with exactly the kind of touching heart-felt story one […]

Something to Watch: Discs

There is very little genre coming out this week, with the animated Disney fantasies The Good Dinosaur and The Lion Guard being pretty much the only Western exceptions. Anime does a bit better, with Tokyo ESP: Complete Series taking place in a world where flying fish bestow paranormal powers, and only the penguin can overcome […]

Indigo la End

The Japanese band Indigo la End is a bit hard to categorize; Alt, Rock, and Pop, they do it all. The first track is Images Do Not Appear On The Eyes from their first Warner Music single in 2014, the second is Nameless Happy Ending from their Space Shower Records days in 2013, the 3rd […]
