Tribute to Ghibli

A young French film student by the name of Gwenn Germain has put together an amazing tribute to Hayao Miyazaki and his Studio Ghibli films, and it is world class. Watch, and go Ooh and Aah, and let me know what you think!

Something to Watch: Discs

In Movies this week we get The Man with the Iron Fists 2, which is a kung-fu epic fantasy that takes place in a 19th century Chinese village. The villagers and mine workers are the oppressed, while the mine owners and their enforcers are the evil overlords. The stranger in town teaches the villagers how [...]

A Crow Is White

A Crow Is White just released their third mini-album in January, called Himitsu, and the first video here is the title track. The next one is their 2013 song Sunny Side Up, and the third one is Hi-speed Muteppou. They are an Art-Rock band from Japan, and they have put together quite a number of [...]

Something to Do: Movies

It is finally time for the release of Home, the animated adventure about cute aliens trying to find a world of their own… without much luck. The unluckiest is Oh, who may have accidentally destroyed their original homeworld, and a number of the other ones they were hoping to take over. Now he is on [...]

Hotel Transylvania II trailer

I suspect Hotel Transylvania II will be cute, silly fun. In fact this trailer seems to guarantee it. Possibly even a little too cute, but I am willing to risk that.

Something to Watch: Discs

In movies this week we have Vice (maybe), the Bruce Willis re-imagining of a Westworld-like place. I say maybe because it was originally set for release this week, but when I look up my pre-order it says both that it will be delivered on Tuesday and that it is not available. The critical response and [...]

Inside Out new trailer

The new Pixar trailer for Inside Out has been released, giving a better glimpse of the plot line than we have previously seen. As usual with their projects it looks like a serious story carefully hidden within some high quality silly fun. It will be on the big screen on June 19th, I will be [...]

Age Of Ultron

Daredevil looks good but the next Avengers looks incredible. I can’t wait to see this one on the big screen!

Something to Do: Movies

The new live-action Cinderella is probably going to get a large number of seats filled, if only for the opening short Frozen Fever. I will probably be at that one myself, but The Cobbler also looks pretty interesting; a shoe repair man working in the same shop his family has run for generations is granted [...]

Sleater-Kinney: A New Wave

This fun little power pop/punk/indi tune by Sleater-Kinney, A New Wave, was done as a Bob’s Burgers animation, and I like both the music and the artwork in this presentation. That wasn’t the first connection between an alt rock band and the show; back in 2013 St. Vincent also made an appearance with their song [...]
