Happy Halloween! Well, a happy late Halloween as that was quite a while back or maybe a super early Halloween as it is quite a way off. The problem with festive themed DVD collections is you feel a little wrong watching them when the events aren’t near, it didn’t stop Bleach from having a Halloween episode a few weeks ago though, but Bleach likes to embarrass itself. Still this collection only has one Halloween episode and the rest are either vaguely horror related or not at all so it matters not. Be prepared for some intense scares. Thought Dead Space 2 was scary? You ain’t seen nothing yet. Continue reading
2008 felt so long ago, years feel like years, then those years turned to months, now they feel like a few weeks. Gin said this would happen! Continue reading

Leslie Neilsen’s passing late last year was a sad one, so to remember the great actor I chose to watch Airplane! again. Sad to say I used to get this film mixed up with Con Air from memory and because of it created an unpleasant memory of the film. My Japanese teacher who always taught in metaphors liked to quote Con Air and I accidentally associated the quotes with this. No bunny in the box here. Continue reading
Once I saw a video on YouTube of kids reenacting the film Scarface, pretty awesome and funny. There is also a gangster film starring kids as the main roles but I forget the name, it all ends on a big fight in a bar. It might not have been a bar. The point I’m making is the film Brick is like these two things, take a serious adult noir story and put teenagers as the role. Instant quirky appeal but does it work? Continue reading
I think all children made a comic at some point along with original characters to fill the pages. I had a depressed middle-aged man Mr. Big Nose who only wore boxer shorts and Max, a stick man version of Mighty Max. I loved drawing up stories for them even if my drawings were terrible and even now sometimes I doodle Max, not that it is very difficult. A stick man crossed with Rayman wearing a red cap, only I think it has any charm, only I. The reason I bring this up is Comic Jumper is a game based on a character one of the people behind the game designed as a kid. A bulky man with a round head and a talking star on his chest, but better than my stick man. Continue reading
