Review: Promare

During a live stage interview promoting his directorial debut, the 2004 anime Dead Leaves , Hiroyuki Imaishi was asked whether he went a little “too far” with the film, which runs for roughly 50 minutes of nonstop action and features a character with a drill penis. “No,” he replied, “being halfway is the worst.” Fifteen years later, Imaishi has gone from cult favorite animator to superstar director — helming Gainax’s comeback hit, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann , and Studio Trigger’s breakout TV...

What It Means to Live in Absolute Poverty

Ford v Ferrari Releases New Trailer And Poster

On first glance, with no information beyond the title and perhaps the poster, you might imagine that Matt Damon and Christian Bale play the titular characters in Ford v Ferrari.

Our focus here, while technically surrounded by car manufacturers, is on the true story of legendary car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and driver Ken Miles (Bale). We enter the story in the mid-60s with Shelby determ...

Mysterious Heroine X Assassination Note: How Many Sabers Are There? (Update #9)

 I decided to finally do it. I would try to catalog all the various Saber variants there are. The fact that there are more and more variants of Artoria Pendragon has gone from a few different versions of the main heroine to a running joke that has had an official term for characters who look like Artoria: Saberface. … Continue reading Mysterious Heroine X Assassination Note: How Many Sabers Are There?

That's my response to a lot of news headlines these days.Call me cynical, but a lot of content today doesn't impress me, and it probably doesn't impress you either.
