Something to Do: Movies

The winner this week is Despicable Me 3 (which is actually the 4th film in the series), hands down and no doubt about it. While I will definitely be in the theater for that one, it is not the only choice. The Little Hours is a very twisted medieval romantic comedy that takes place in […]

Something to Watch: Discs

The interesting western selection this week is Absolutely Anything, a sci-fi comedy with the surviving members of Monty Python plus Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale, Eddie Izzard, Joanna Lumley, and Robin Williams (it was his final film). The critics didn’t care for it, with lots of reviews saying it was lacking in laughs, but I am […]

Man With A Mission

It came as something of a surprise to me when I realized I have never done a post on Man With A Mission, the famous wolf-headed J-Rock band. Today I am going to correct that by posting a few tracks, but if you like what you hear be aware there is a lot more to […]

Something to Watch: Discs

This time we get the orbital thriller Life, and the award winning comedy fantasy This Beautiful Fantastic. The later film slid right past a lot of folks, if you haven’t seen it you might want to consider checking it out. In Anime Norn9: Complete Collection has a nameless girl join the spaceship Norn in it’s […]

Bump Of Chicken revisit

It has been a while since I have featured Bump Of Chicken here, so I thought I would share a few tracks released since my last posting. The first track this time around is called Answer the theme song for the anime Sangatsu no Lion, AKA March Comes in like a Lion. The second is […]

Something to Do: Movies

If you have a nearby theater that shows Bollywood films, Super Singh is the story of a man who accidentally gets superpowers and runs around trying to figure out what to do with them. The other option is the American/Dutch film Kill Switch, where the promise of limitless energy leads us very close to the […]

Something to Watch: Discs

The western winner this week is The LEGO Batman Movie, absolutely my favorite Batman movie of all time. Although that may change, seeing as Joss Whedon is taking over DC Cinema, including the Justice League movie and the Batgirl movie. Except for some reshoots, the filming is largely completed on Justice League, but Whedon gets […]

Gayageum Rock

The Gayageum is a multi-string instrument from 6th century Korea, and artist Luna Lee has been using the instrument to play rock songs to very good effect. So good that she plays festivals around the world, including SXSW in Austin this year. Here are a few tracks to give you a taste, I bet you […]

New Gintama Trailer

When aliens invaded Edo era Japan, built skyscrapers, introduced motorized vehicles and pizza delivery, and told the Samurai they could not use their swords, many were not happy. Chief among them was Gintama, a Ronin desperate to make a name for himself. The new trailer for the live action feature film from this manga/anime franchise […]

Something to Do: Movies

This week the movie choice is The Mummy, with a tone closer to the original movies than the more recent trilogy. The one thing it has in common with the more recent work is it does still look to be Action driven, rather than the original Horror underpinnings.
