The documentary about one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies never made, Jodorowsky’s Dune has won a boatload of awards. He lined up Salvador Dalí, Orson Welles, Mick Jagger and Gloria Swanson for the cast, he had Peter Gabriel and Pink Floyd to do the soundtrack, H. R. Giger and Jean Giraud (Mobius) were doing set and character design, and the list goes on. It would have been amazing. As near as I can tell, all the rest of the genre movies and TV coming out are reissues and re-releases.

In Anime, Sasami-san@Ganbaranai has Sasami as a hikikomori who unknowingly has the powers of a god. She attends school remotely, using her brother who is a teacher there as her remote viewing platform. Other gods get jealous of her relationship with her brother, and take actions which make her school a very strange place to be. She may actually have to leave her house to set things right! Also this week, Naruto Shippūden DVD box19 hits the shelf.
