Re: Official "What should I watch next?" thread

So I ended up making a Crunchyroll account while attempting to watch Watanbe's Blade Runner 2022 short, and I now realized that I could watch anime on Crunchyroll. Does anyone have recommendations for anime to watch on the UK Crunchyroll (since that's the region I'm in)? To give some context, I'm lo...

Re: Blade Runner franchise

I popped over to Crunchyroll to give it a watch, mainly because it's been a loooooooong time since any live-action film's had an animated short or spin-off to tie in with it (the most recent example I can think of is Genndy Tartakovsky's Star Wars: Clone Wars mini-series back in 2004/05; if there's ...

Re: Star Wars

It's because he took the best ST film - Wrath of Khan - and made a very visually striking film... Well, the obnoxiously bright lens flares were certainly striking, if that's what you mean.

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Was very bored yesterday, so I picked a random film from a list on Netflix and watched it: Not Another Teen Movie , a 2001 comedy that takes every single high-school movie cliché and exaggerates it to hell and back. The plot is basically She's All That , to the point where Chris Evans and Chyler Lei...

Re: What are you watching right now? (tv series + see OP!)

Just finished watching the Castlevania Netflix series and I gotta be honest, that was terrible. I'm not really a fan of the series, so this isn't some bitter fanboyism masquerading as critique. My issues with the series lie with its mistakes and them alone. So, what did I not like about the series? ...
