    Earrthsea London screening

    I have had a quick scan of the forum and couldn't see this mentioned, so forgive me if someone's posted this already. I've just had the NFT/BFI Southbank listings in the post with the news that Tales from Earthsea will be screening in the NFT 1 on Saturday 28th July at 2:40 pm. I don't know...

    Bandai threaten fansubbers over Solid State Society

    Heresy! But aside from that, I have nothing to add except to congratulate Laughing Manji on some great writing and research.

    Bandai threaten fansubbers over Solid State Society

    At least half of the shows that I have watched and enjoyed as fansubs in the last three years or so have not been released or licensed outside Japan. I would be perfectly happy if my computer stopped me watching shows that had been or would be picked up for distribution, but why should I not be...

    Desert Punk

    I did a little review of this here back when it was first airing in Japan as Sunabouzu - ... article=22 It's a neat little series with a fairly good central character in that he's neither good nor bad but just out for himself, and he seems to get into a...

    Sky Blue (aka Wonderful Days)

    I remember preferring the Korean language version but i saw that so long ago I can't remember why. The English dub is average, a middling plot that reminds me of Spirits Within and animation that suffers because it aims to be cutting edge, but it was made years ago so it's no longer cutting...

    Teaser trailer online for Satoshi Kon's new movie - Paprika

    It looks very nice, I'm excited now. I hope we don't have to wait too long for a UK release. Looks like he's taken the altered reality themes from Paranoia Agent and run with them.

    Pirates of the Carribbean (Get a free coin)

    Thanks for that Strawberry, should make my girlfriend happy! I saw Pirates 2 on Saturday and I have to say I was disappointed. For me what made the first film great was Johnny Depp's random asides, his character given a bit of freedom to be weird, but in this it was more about action...

    UK Anime Blu-ray & DVD Bargains

    I don't know if this is HMV only or trade-wide, but the price for Steamboy has dropped to £9.99 and the price for the Box set to £12.99. Which I'm more than a little annoyed at after shelling out full price for the box, thinking it was going to be really limited and my only chance to get the...

    I think this has the potential to be a kitsch classic. When I saw the trailer months ago with the baddie saying "Are you mental?!" it certainly stood out... I'm tempted, but I know it will be bad. The question is, bad awful or bad enjoyable?

    PS3 on pre- order at - £549.99 (with 3 games)

    The rumours going around are that the 360 will have a price cut of up to £100, they're only rumours but it would make perfect sense for Microsoft to do it in the run-up to the PS3 launch, putting an even greater price difference between the two.

    Mezzo DSA replaces Wolf's Rain on RaptureTV

    I was a fan of Mezzo when it first aired so it's a shame I can't get Rapture. One day I'll find the DVDs cheap...

    Inuyasha DVD publisher and connections with ITV

    I don't see a problem with a bit of editing as long as the DVD release is untouched, bit more TV coverage for anime can't hurt. Unless they show Gun Do Musashi.

    The Worst Trailer Ever: In the Name of the King

    This looks pretty poor and I'm also surprised at the relatively 'big name' talent, they can't be that hard up for parts, can they? But I do have a guilty feeling of curiosity, I haven't seen any Boll film and I often see the Alone in the Dark DVD and wonder....

    V For Vendetta

    I really enjoyed it. I went into it having already read the graphic novel a while back, and to be honest I wasn't expecting much especially seeing as it had its release delayed. I was surprised at how faithful it was, seeing as the original was set in a more fascistic Thatcher's Britain of the...

    Favourite Game Openings

    Onimusha 3? The one with Reno. I don't own a PS2 but I've seen the intro, amazing stuff. But I think my favourite intro has to be for Tekken 3, for its time on the Playstation the graphics were jaw-dropping and it flowed beautifully, and it has Gon.

    Star wars Battlefront 1-2

    Really? To be honest, I never liked the swoop races since the first game so I hardly played any, I certainly never went back to beat times or gamble, so maybe I missed these bugs?

    what movies are you most lookin forward too

    I'm also looking forward to Fearless, I think it's meant to his last martial arts pic rather than last ever film. I've been looking forward to A Scanner Darkly since I heard about it over a year ago, that one's been delayed a lot. Pirates 2 I'll see, and Fruit Chan's 'Dumplings' is on at...

    James Bond Trailer is UP! Casino Royale

    Going by the trailer, it doesn't really seem to be all that 'gritty', not enough to warrant the claims of Bourne Identity Crisis. Sure, it looks more earthy than Die Another Day, but that was tripe and the added 'origin story' can only add a bit of roughness before James Bond learns to do...

    American producers look to remake Battle Royale

    Hence the redundancy of a remake, which will most likely offer nothing new but with less colour, style and humour. The fact that these cliches all crop up in the original makes the inevitability of their appearance in the remake even worse. I hope it goes straight to DVD in the UK so we can...
