Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

On to episode 10 of Now and Then, Here and There. Guy heads to a spring, which apparently still exist in this world despite the absence of water being the whole point of the plot, to collect water for the village with the help of a girl named Soon. When they get back, an injured soldier deserting fr...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Dirty Pair OVA series and Movie : Girls with guns have fun adventures in space. The tone remains lighthearted even in more serious episodes thanks to the main characters carefree attitude. All this adventuring is accompanied by some nice 80s music. While the OVA series I watched was well animated f...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Waterworld? You mean the terrible Kevin Costner movie? Joss Whedon didn't have anything to do with that.

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

You know, I'm a hardcore Firefly fan, and I think I just lost a little of the respect I have for Whedon.

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

On to episode 9 of Now and Then, Here and There. This time, our heroes have made it all the way to a village, with flowing water and plants and everything. This place, the locals tell them, is called Zari-Bars, and apparently it's where the assassins who tried to kill King Hamdo earlier came from. S...

Re: Last Movie You Watched

Having romance being a subplot to the movie makes sense, as I know some disagree Well count me as one of the people who disagrees. We're told that Diana regaining faith in humanity was what allowed her to get her powers back. But the way the movie shows it happening, it looks more like the act of p...

Re: Official Pokémon Thread

My Top 3: Gen 5: This was the first game that really felt fresh to me. Many of the villains were more three-dimensional than normal (and even the ones who weren't, like Ghetsis, were at least evil in a cool way), the setting was completely new, there were no Pokemon from older games. It basically se...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

I was actually more impressed by the film's discussion of the nature of war. Not many mass-market films--especially not superhero films-- go out of their way to mention that violence and warfare are something that humans will never fully overcome. War isn't caused by corruption by an evil force, but...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

It's time now to return to the recap of Now and Then Here and There--Episode 8. The episode starts in a desert, where we see a person's arm sticking out of the sand. The arm turns out to belong to Sarah, who gets pulled out of the sand and hauled off by a creepy-looking guy in a mask. Bet we'll be s...

Re: Official Pokémon Thread

I've actually never seen such a negative reaction towards new Pokemon games. It seems half the people are angry it isn't on the switch and the other half are angry they revisited Alola (which is most people's least favorite region, and I have to agree). I actually like Alola, if for no other reason...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Just got back from watching Wonder Woman . For the most part, it really is as good as they say. It has the sort of humor and heart that are sorely lacking from the other DC movies of late, and it does an admirable job of highlighting the inevitability and futility of war. The only major issue it had...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

We now return to my recap of Now and Then Here and There, Episode 6: Back at Hellywood, Guy is arrested and thrown in the dungeon for stepping out of line in the last episode. The kid who comes to deliver him his food tells him he'll probably be sentenced to death, but this just makes him more deter...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

"Tragedy porn" isn't really the best description, since the show does have something to say and it's not just torturing the protagonist for the sake of it. That being said, I'm also watching the remake of Chi's Sweet Home . There's really not much I can say about it, except that it's super...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I was waiting for your reactions to ep 6. I am disappoint with your lack of shock and disgust. I’ve only seen the show once, but I remember that opening scene as being especially difficult to watch. I knew some of you were going to say that, so I'm going to explain it here: part of the reason I'm n...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I was calling him Guy mostly as a joke because he doesn't really do much. So here's my take on Episode 6: Sarah (the American chick from earlier) is raped by one of the King Hamdo's goons. Needless to say, she doesn't take it lying down, and beats the shit out of him with a glass bottle, then runs a...

Top Gun 2? I wonder what airplane is going to be the star of this one (the F-14 was retired in 2006, except in Iran).
