Nausicaä revisited

Tor published an excellent article yesterday about how Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind not only helped found Studio Ghibli, but set Miyazaki on the path that would define his career. It is one of the best postings I have seen on the subject, exploring both its influences and results, and now I am […]

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets trailer 2

Today we finally got to see the second teaser trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, based on the groundbreaking graphic novel Valerian & Laureline. This is the second major motion picture taking place fully in this universe (Fifth Element was the first), but you have seen scenes inspired by the series […]

Dante’s Lunch – A Short Tail

Disney/Pixar just posted Dante’s Lunch – A Short Tail, and it was too much fun to keep to myself. It is a short slice of Coco, which opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2017. I am also including the official teaser trailer, for those who haven’t seen it yet.

Something to Do: Movies

There is only one movie I will be in the theater for this weekend: Ghost in the Shell live action US remake. Was there ever any doubt?

Something to Watch: Discs

Leading the pack this time is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the next generation series from the Harry Potter universe. I can’t wait to see where J. K. Rowling goes with this one, the first film was exceedingly tasty, probably because she wrote the screenplay herself. The other selection is A Monster Calls, […]

GOOD ON THE REEL Revisited

GOOD ON THE REEL released their third full album this February, and since it has been a few years since I last posted about them I thought it was time to take a look at some of their recent work. The first track is the somewhat pop A Small Room from their new album Guanaco’s […]

Death Note Live-Action Trailer

After a decade of various US companies trying to bring a live-action version of Death Note to the screen, Netflix has finally posted the first trailer for their upcoming release. It will be very interesting to compare it with the Asian live-action TV series, which you can watch online for free at the previous link, […]

Something to Do: Movies

We get several interesting options this weekend, and while Power Rangers looks pretty campy just like it should, it also looks like they might take a more serious shot at the franchise. Leaning to the Horror side, Life has six astronauts vs. a single celled organism returned from Mars that can out-think them. In the […]

Something to Watch: Discs

Assassin’s Creed was a great game and an excellent premise for a movie; I don’t know if it succeeded or not, because I haven’t seen it yet. The critics seemed to be underwhelmed, with “confusing” and “disorienting” being the two words most often used to describe it. I don’t know if that’s because none of […]
