Kandagawa Jet Girls Episode 11 Impression

On this episode, Rin attempts to break her habit from observing her mother and revisits her home. Meanwhile, Misa does some meditations. As my very first thought, I really wonder why Rin's father is "faceless". It's like he was some sort of former visual novel faceless main character (or perhaps from some random hentai series). But, the mother isn't faceless and she's even deceased. I just find it to be strange on why the producers did that.Anyway, it was interesting to see some more of Rin's pa...

Destroyer Duck #7 - Frank Miller cover

Frank Miller Destroyer Duck v1 #7, 1984 - On this cover, Frank Miller draws the character with a disturbing combination of humor and violence. This parody of the gun-toting films of the era (Rambo, etc.) is perfectly suited. Laden with an abundance of weapons, Destroyer Duck lights a lone match, illuminating his maniacal face. This technique was often employed by Miller and works especially [Author: Unknown]

Xbox Head Wants to Buy Japanese Game Studio

Xbox head Phil Spencer has said that he wants to take over a video game development studio in Japan. In spite of the abysmal performance of the Xbox brand in Japan over the years, which continued even when the 360 briefly became the default console for niche RPGs and other otaku-centric games, Microsoft has insisted […]

Journalist Accuses Xbox & AAA Games of Destroying the Planet

A Western games journalist has condemned the new Xbox as being the “wrong console” for the supposed climate crisis, saying that the industry as a whole is going in the wrong direction with graphically-intensive games.

Oldtaku no Radio #039 – Patlabor (OVAs)

It's time again for Anime Secret Santa, and a certain special someone left us one heck of a present to unpack: Patlabor ! While we were given the OVAs and movies to review, we had more than enough to talk about with just the OVAs, so we'll get around to the movies on a bonus episode or three. We talk about the OVAs as a collection in general and then get into specifics about each of the six OVAs (counting the two-parter as a single OVA), and the results, knowing the inclinations of the two hos...

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) As another decade draws to a close, it’s time to reckon with the best of what we experienced in movies. Particularly, it’s time to take a look at some of the more memorable movie characters, figures who stayed at the top of our hearts, minds, and the public consciousness.

The 10 Cinematic Debuts That Defined the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The decade, arguably more than any other, created seismic revolutionary shifts in the way we perceive and consume film. Superheroes solidified their rank as huge box office juggernauts, and Disney continued their theatrical reign, but the rise of streaming services and VOD altered how audiences approached cinema. Hollywood studios were increasing distribution rights for their films and TV programs to Internet companies over traditional c...

The 11 Movies That Redefined Animation This Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) As we exit the 2010s, one thing is certain. The decade brought advancements in technology, bold choices in storytelling, and more creative diversity than cinema has ever seen before, trends that all apply to animation as it does to live-action. This medium remained the one in which artists can dream up wonders that we’ll never see in the real world and make them move, and the 2020s will be shaped by what we watched in the 2010s. As Vince...

Censors nix ‘Rise of Skywalker’ gay kiss in two countries

Fresh off a critical drubbing and falling short on the opening weekend box office, The Rise of Skywalker also faces censorship of a same-sex kiss. The BBC reports that prints of the film in Singapore and the United Arab Emirates deleted the kiss–the first-ever same-sex kiss in a Star Wars film–to retain a PG-13 rating. Furthermore, it’s unclear if Disney or Lucasfilm deleted the kiss for other territories as well. News of the kiss–which appears in one brief shot–ignited immediate speculation ov...

The 10 Best Films of the Decade About Disabilities

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) The importance and expansion of representation and diversity continue to reverberate throughout the film industry. So now feels like just as good a time as any to reflect on a personal area near and dear to my own heart; disability in cinema. However, one doesn’t need to specifically hone in on the past two years or so (when representation and diversity were really pressured to improve), for the entire decade has a sampling of terrific fi...

The 10 Movies That Saved Us This Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) As 2019 nears finality, wrapping up decade-end lists across internet publications, I opt to close on a high note. Any other year I’d be dishing the “Most Disturbing Movie Moments” or “Best Kills” given my horror focus, but life’s about keeping things fresh. Ducking when your opponent thinks you’ll counter. This past decade has defined my life in ways never thought imaginable, and thoughtfully, movies have become an undeniable influence w...

What It’s Like to Attend a 24-Hour ‘Star Wars’ Movie Marathon

I’ve done long movie marathons before; horrifically long ones that lasted more than 30 hours, in fact (and you can read about that Marvel marathon here ). So when the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood partnered again with Nerdist to host a 24-hour Star Wars marathon, I eagerly signed up. I was a pro at this, I told myself. Watching the nine movies that comprised the Skywalker Saga would be a breeze.  Spoiler alert: a 24-hour movie marathon is still a very long time to sit in a movie the...

We'll be publishing our reviews throughout the day on Christmas Eve.

Charting the Cinematic Evolution of Santa Claus: From Magic Elf to Boogeyman and Beyond

How far can you stretch an icon until the imagery shatters? What is the core essence of Santa Claus? Normally in this column we’d look at the evolution of an actor to see how their persona changed over time, but ’tis the season to examine the jolliest shape-shifter. The concept of Santa Claus is an amalgamation of mythologies that solidified in the United States at least a hundred years before film was invented. In many ways, cinema is both obsessed and afraid of the figure. He pops up occasion...
