Thor: Ragnarok trailer

We have to wait until November for this one, but it looks like it is going to be a monster, and I mean that literally.

Something to Watch: Discs

Everything seems to be animated this week. It is always a treat to get a new title from Studio Ghibli, Ocean Waves is available this week for the first time in the US. It was made in 1993 as a TV anime, but at 152 minutes long rates as a mini-series. In anime, My Hero […]

Something to Watch: Discs

The best movie this time is a true story: Hidden Figures has to be one of the best films of the year, or last year at least. If you haven’t seen it yet, now is your chance! Mars: Season One is a mini-series presented on National Geographic all about the upcoming Mars Colonization project. Monster […]

New Mummy trailer

The latest iteration of The Mummy looks better than ever, but I really loved the humor in the last trilogy, and I see no sign of that here so far. Still, I live in hope, and the new trailer rocks!

Something to Do: Movies

The number one box office sensation of 2016 in Japan finally comes to US theaters this weekend: Makoto Shinkai’s masterpiece Your Name. That’s the one I intend to see, but another interesting option is Colossal, about a woman connected to a gigantic alien trashing downtown Seoul (because I guess it couldn’t afford the ticket to […]

Something to Watch: Discs

The obvious winner this week is Star Wars: Rogue One, arguably the best film in the franchise so far.

Hyperdimension Neptunia is being released in a S.A.V.E. edition, which makes […]

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?
