The live-action adaptation of this classic known to many as “Samurai X” has been doing the rounds online. From mere cast and script description to actual photos and even a teases trailer to go with it all, but how is it coming up?
No, not the craptastic movie by Daniel Sadek released in 2007. We are here to tell you about the anime, or have you forgotten that we are an anime site? This film is going to be hitting theatres in the US and neighbouring Canada pretty soon, so you ought to keep an eye out if you are interested in high production values, fast cars and stylish adrenaline-pumping anime!
Fate/Stay Night is kind of a big deal around here and most of the internet. It’s one of those licenses that stand out with original characters, plots and ideas that are wild enough to workm and show the world that anime goes a step beyond. This movie was a part of that, and yet…
Today’s review comes in honor of the soon to be bastardized by Hollywood classic, Akira. This title isn’t exactly “PG” (if anything it’s entirely away from it) but it’s still worthy of a review. Not only because it’s a great seminal title that blew many minds away, but also due to the fact that you’ll be forced to adding “Anime” to any search queries as to avoid the adaptation.
Well it certainly has been a long while since our last article and we apologize for that. Our one (and only) writer caught a bad case of Chickenpox and that “kiddie” illness sure beats the crap out of adults. So as a means to apologize to you all and jump back on track we are giving you a review of Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance, now available in theatres!
Fans of Gantz can rejoice as the Washington Post has given confirmation that we are bound to see the English dubbed film adaptation. The Japanese film is will no longer restricted to shady websites and crappy subtitles as of January 20, 2011; it will come to theaters near you (or well, far away from you depending on where you read us from).
It has been confirmed that FUNIMATION is currently busy filling out forms in order to submit Mamoru Hosoda’s Summer Wars as a nominee for “Best Animated Feature”. The Academy Awards would count Summer Wars as the 14th film running to enter as a nominee, maybe that make the Oscars something worth watching this year. Read on after the jump.
Fans of the Resident Evil game series are sure to have enjoyed the last CGI installment. The reason for that being that it didn’t butcher the games as badly as the live-action films. Those left craving for more “decent” or even “good” Resident Evil movies are in luck. A sequel to the amazing (by comparison to the other films) “Resident Evil: Degeneration” has been green-lit.
Those of you with nothing better to do this summer should go now in search for a newspaper because Ghibli’s Earthsea hit theatres this Friday, and so far it’s going strong. Read on for a list of theatres in case you feel like catching it yourself, and a short review for those who feel like getting the DVD and checking it out.
Neon Genesis Evangelion is as influential as it is popular and some would even go and call it over rated; others would call it a masterwork….there’s no middle ground here, folks. Hate it or love it.
The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Warner Brothers “is in the process of securing the rights to” Tite Kubo’s Bleach manga. Director, Peter Segal (Anger Management, The Longest Yard, Get Smart) is lining up to produce, but not direct the live action film.
I attended the one night event screening of the Eureka Seven movie and while it appeared most of the audience disliked the film, I enjoyed it very much. There was also a ‘making of’ bit after the credits, which was a half hour about the transition of the movie from Japanese to English, problems encountered and Q&As…
So I just returned from one of the last screenings of Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone in New York City and I must say, I am incredibly let down by what I watched. When I say that only the most diehard of Evangelion fans will enjoy this, I mean it.
I was able to see an advanced screening of Miyazaki’s Ponyo, before the debut of the film to over 800 theatres nationwide in the United States on August 14, 2009. The animation, as expected, was absolutely stunning, the use of color and animals in this film is just as beautiful as the teaser trailers hinted.
