The film choice this time is a toss up between two movies. On the one hand we have an an animation: Rango, starring Johnny Depp, a comedy about a lizard in the wild west. On the other hand, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives is a live action story full of heart and its own fair share of humor. There was also supposed to be a Sci-Fi Noir film staring Antonio Banderas called Terranova coming out this week, but I haven’t found any solid information on it.
The western TV selection of the week is Robot Chicken Star Wars: Episode III. I still can’t believe they got George Lucas to do his own voiceover for these.
In Anime, Naruto: Shippuden (DVD box 7) brings us the next season in that series with more Ninja action and drama. The DVD release schedule is around a hundred episodes behind what you can watch online with the latest seasons simulcast. Finally, >Allison & Lillia DVD Generation 2 turns a simple vacation into a fight against all the people trying to kill them, complete with a liberal dose of aerial combat.
