Shakugan no Shana: Season II

Shakugan no Shana: Season II

| December 27, 2012 | 1 Comments

I first encountered this highly-addictive anime through FUNimation Entertainment’s Blu-ray release of Shakugan no Shana’s first season, repackaging the same portion previously released by Geneon with the original dub and all. That release, while collecting 24 episodes of an absolutely terrific series, left me wanting a bit more from FUNimation’s future releases of the title, […]

Power Rangers Super Samurai: The Complete Season

Power Rangers Super Samurai: The Complete Season

The last few releases of Saban’s Power Rangers Samurai and Super Samurai from Lionsgate have found me complaining here, at length, about a release schedule so broken that it seemed like Lionsgate may have been actively trying to discourage the Power Rangers fan base from purchasing their product. But for the first time since their […]

Alicia Silverstone – branded forever as Cher “As If!” Horowitz – reunites this fall with the director who made her a household name back in 1995: Amy Heckerling. The writer/director of the classic high school comedy is […]

The cinematic curiosity that is writer/director Noboru Iguchi’s (The Machine Girl) 2011 film, Karate-Robo Zaborgar, serves as both a comedic send-up of the live action mecha dramas so popular in Japan in the 1970′s and a fairly faithful adaptation of 1974′s Denjin Zaborger, according to my cursory research into the series. Although it’s not uncommon […]

Battleground

Battleground (2012), coming to Blu-ray and DVD on August 28, 2012 from Well Go USA, is exactly what you’d cynically expect of a cross between Reservoir Dogs with First Blood: a flashy, dull mess of an actioner. The film follows a group of men fresh off a botched heist in Flint, Michigan who must lie […]
