Sleepy Eyes of Death Vol.3

When I think of a cult samurai film, the very first thing that comes to my mind is Lone Wolf & Cub. It’s got some crazy plot elements, over the top action and plenty of blood to go around. Now, it won’t be, thanks to watching Animeigo’s release of Volume Three of the Sleepy Eyes […]

Doomsday Book is […]

Patrick Leung’s kung fu film Wu Dang is one part Indiana Jones and another part Goonies, mixed with some great kung fu action that makes for a really fun film, with the exception of an awkward subplot. Professor Tang (Vincent Zhao) and his daughter Ning (Josie Xu) are on their way to help a family […]

Kouta Hirano’s Hellsing was one of the very few breakout manga and anime hits of the early 2000′s.

As I reviewed the Shogun Assassin boxed set here, I’ve explicitly stated how much I love that set and what it means to me. That cut of Shogun Assassin is something that I find synonymous with my love of hip hop music and its culture. With this new Lone Wolf and Cub Blu-Ray set, we […]
