I've recently finished the short series of "Death Frenzy," "Sands of Destruction," and "Sengoku Basara" on Hulu.  They were great shows and I recommend them to any anime fan.  Death Frenzy is extremely graphic, I might add.

I'm currently two episodes into "Hero Tales", which also appears to be a very good one.

Arrested Development fans should check out Mitch Hurwitz's new show Running Wilde if you haven't yet. It's on Tuesday nights on Fox, and you can find previous episodes on Hulu. It has a very similar type of humor to AD, with some of the same cast (Will Arnett, David Cross) and writers. There have been two episodes so far, both with a few little inside jokes for AD fans. Don't give up on it if you don't like the pilot; the second episode is much funnier.

Fox isn't really known for being patient with their shows while they find an audience, but I'm hoping this will last a while.

From Wikipedia:

    * The original script called for Cage's character to eat raw eggs. Not believing this to be shocking enough, Cage suggested cockroaches. He later felt sorry for them.

    * Cage actually ate three cockroaches for the film, as the scene reportedly required three takes.

Netflix.  They have the long version on DVD, but not streaming (last I checked.)

The long version makes so much more sense than the short one.  They don't give us much credit for being able to keep track of characters and follow complicated plots.  And they're probably right in that.

* Dexter, for some reason, I just haven't been able to watch lately. Still downloading them though.

* SGU is as good as it's ever been, but I mostly enjoy it for the episodes where shit gets meta.

* Community. How the world existed without this show is almost as criminal as WW2.

* Finally, Supernatural. It's stayed fresh after all this time and it will always be fresh. May this show never end (even though it is :( ).

HBO does good work and I doubt it'll be cheesy.
What I fear is they'll do a season and then go, eh, too expensive. Never mind. And they'll leave us hanging.

If they don't then Mr. Martin may want to get off his ass and finish.

Black Rock Shooter - FINISHED!

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/7/7a/Black_Rock_Shooter_cover.jpg/230px-Black_Rock_Shooter_cover.jpg)

Genre: Action, Drama, School
Type: Movie (Anime)
Length: 52 minutes and 23 seconds long
Personal Rating: 4 out of 5.

For my first anime (movie), this was pretty good. Within an hour, it build up character plots, challenges, and really ended off with a good note.

(http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/6888/21938921206881211kigeki.jpg)

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Historical, Supernatural
Type: Short Film (Anime)
Length: 10 minutes and 5 seconds.
Personal Rating: 5 out of 5.

For a short film, this was very good. The music scoring fit the overall mood of the anime and it provided a decent enough background to bring the viewer into the fold.

Genre: Action, Drama
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 4 Episodes (5 to 10 minutes long, each)
Personal Rating: 3 out of 5.

Unless you followed the game, I suppose you'd have a better idea of what was going on. Either way, there were some pretty good action sequences. The 4 episodes take place at the same time, just different places with different character focuses.

Genre: Action, Drama, Romance

Witchblade
Neon Genesis Evangelion

The real action movies I want and don't have are entirely limited to classical and modern kung fu theater such as
The House of Flying Daggers
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Hero
just about everything Jet Li's ever been in.

I've watched The Five Deadly Venoms. It was surprisingly long and complex for a movie that old and I loved it.

I really want to own a 1950s movie called Nightmare Alley. I didn't care for any of the themes or anything like that, it was 100% the power and emotion of the characters' acting. this was some american black and white movie.

Oh well, it honestly depends on your preference.

I don't like the "silly" anime that's only there for lulz. I gravitate towards things that usually have a note of seriousness as well as a dark mood. Sometimes, I switch it up, for a breath of fresh air.

Off the top of my head, some serious (And by serious, I mean they are typically not intended for children) anime are Berserk, Black Lagoon, Cowboy Bebop, Blue Gender, Claymore, Ergo Proxy, and I suppose Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann - Even though TTGL starts off pretty childish (You'll roll your eyes through the first 8 episodes, then it randomly and unexpectedly becomes a very serious anime).
Title: Re: What are you currently watching?

Genre: Action, Ecchi, Horror, Supernatural, Romance
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 12 Episodes, 24 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 4 out of 5.

Oh wow. Where to start? Definitely a fan-service (plenty of cleavage/panty shots) but the animation is really good - Very violent, lots of screaming, blood, chewing - What you would expect if a zombie virus hit a japanese high school full of students, mid-day.

Edit #1:
Lol... So, after episode 4, it's still pretty serious - But there are, of course, alot of the "anime" aspects. And it starts to have a heavier focus on fan service (Boobs/ass). Still pretty good.

Edit #2:
Whew! That was a fun Anime. Not the best, but certainly fun. Seems it was pretty recent - Last episode to come out (season finale) was July 2010, so maybe a 2nd season is in the works. Finger's crossed! Now onto the next one ;)

Oh wow. Where to start? Definitely a fan-service (plenty of cleavage/panty shots) but the animation is really good - Very violent, lots of screaming, blood, chewing - What you would expect if a zombie virus hit a japanese high school full of students, mid-day.

Edit #1:
Lol... So, after episode 4, it's still pretty serious - But there are, of course, alot of the "anime" aspects. And it starts to have a heavier focus on fan service (Boobs/ass). Still pretty good.

Edit #2:
Whew! That was a fun Anime. Not the best, but certainly fun. Seems it was pretty recent - Last episode to come out (season finale) was July 2010, so maybe a 2nd season is in the works. Finger's crossed! Now onto the next one ;)

I gobbled this up like popcorn. Greasy, unhealthy buttered popcorn.

And you know you loved every fucking piece >:D

I'm gonna go own Eureka Seven in a bit. i love that show. <3 <3 <3

i feel bad cause i really want to buy Spartacus: Blood and sand for my dad who says nothing about being interested in it but we got free Starz one time for a month and he'd watch that damn show and its four reruns per episode every time it came on. but if i get it now and it ain't his birthday yet they're gonna know i spent money. i told them its price and we're a penny-pinching family. /retarded unnecessary story

but it will TOTALLY be in our house come the first week of march

Spartacus: Gods of the Arena.

Well, lets see... Gratuitus sex, voilence, gore, scheming, and a splash of interesting twist in the plot, mixed with some very clever dialog. Yep. It's Spartacus.

The match in the markets was awesome. As Always I could do without the sex scene every 10 minutes, but hell, it makes me laugh every once in a while. Lucy Lawless' boobs make their expected appearance on mroe than one occasion. I look forward to seeing Crixuz rise, and am curious if Onamaeus will be able to fight again. I can't remember from the last season if he did after his defeat to Theocolese. I wonder when the current Champion will fall, he seems to be a very interesting character, looking like he's there for the sex and glory and wine... But theres a more intelligent hint to him that seems to come about when he's with Onamaeus.

Al in all, I'm enjoying it again. The actor for Batiatus is truly awesome. Every Alnakki noble should aspire to his level of politicking.

in the same category: avatar, for the foreseeable year ahead or so. i don't know.

the one with no white people in it and the bald kid, not the one with blue people.

i watched the first part of the episode of fullmetal alchemist brotherhood where the dad gets drunk and its a recap episode, and i had to stop because it was making me sad.

i don't really know when avatar comes on in nickelodeon, dumb channel drops a bomb full of avatar one night and then nothing for a week when i check. >:( and it seems random to me. but then i'm not trying.

going to be watching the hell out of eureka seven when i get my grebber hands on it ;)

Length: 12 Episodes, 24 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Kind've conflicted about this one. I decided to do some digging and I found out that the manga correlation isn't more than a year and a half old - So the Anime, itself, was based off of pretty recent stuff. I can only hope that once the manga develops more - Another season will follow.

Not too serious. A light-hearted fantasy/romance type of anime. I enjoyed it but it wasn't anything amazing.

Hard to really sum up my feelings on this anime. Just a very epic, graphic romance. Perhaps a story of one of the most twisted love tales I have ever seen or heard of. An anime that gives meaning to "Love for all of eternity." A really good anime, in my opinion. A very strong feeling. Extremely heart-grabbing.

Vampire anime done right.....Sooooooooo right.

But only if you can get past some pretty bizarre character designs and a slow methodical start. (and that annoying girl in the first episode)

Also, Doctor Ozaki (pictured above) is probably the biggest badass in recent anime history. Even though he has no action scenes! The scene from that screen cap will live on in infamy.

It was a decent enough hash-up of different Halo-oriented stories. Obviously done by different artists and directors - Some of the episodes were good, some weren't. The musical scoring was all from the Halo games - So nothing new there, but it did set a good 'feel' to the overall anime.

Personal Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

The animation style threw me off, at first, but I've come to realize that it was just made to flow all the more smoothly with the overall story and setting. The music is great and spontaneous. The feelings are deep and, though I didn't start bawling at the end, it left me with that mixture of sad, yet happy, completion at the end. The feeling one has when coming home from a long, hard day.

I think that was the point of the show. You know. To be trashy hilarious and to make satire on what was considered the social norm of marriages (men wanting beers, no sex, women spending too much money) to the complete opposite (powerworking husband wife combo who had awesome sex).

I dunno. I see Katey Sagal's stuff and she's a very faceted actress. I think it's a funny show to unwind to - you can't be serious and watch serious all the time. Also, if you listen to some people, they would say all people from Chicago are that obnoxious, or what people in Indiana refer to as "FIPs!". :)

For the year this was made, it is perhaps one of the most epic romance stories out there. It's a beautiful story. The world is collapsing - Death, violence, despair and the horrors of war - But in the center of all this darkness is a shining ray of love. A true tragedy.

To summarize this anime - Humanity's Last Romance.

Genre: Drama, Mystery, Psychological, Romance, Supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 24 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 3 out of 5.

Recommended to me by a co-worker. I'd like to call it a roughly "so-so" anime. A heavy focus on government corruption - The rich get richer and the poor get poorer, with a supernatural twist. Lots of uncensored scenes. Interesting story - Original, though not very motivated. Really liked some of the music (mostly the opening theme).

Nerd tangent:

I bought all of Ceres: Celestial Legend on -VHS-. I was 14/16 at the time and had gotten my first job and saved so that every week I could buy a new tape.

I am the most ridiculous person I know. But I loved that anime. Now, I can't stand that stuff.

A very calm, warm anime with a very interesting concept. Not too much character development but it was good, for it's size. Overall, it was a relaxed, very soothing type of Anime - From the design of the characters to the music used.

Length: 16 Episodes, 25 minutes each.

This was an absolute blast! Very bloody, supernatural mafia setting. Storyline shot from the perspectives of multiple main characters - Somewhat disorienting at first but fun once you know when to link them together. This was a great laugh, at times, as well! I think this one anime had the largest mix of romance, hilarious comedy, uncensored violence, and even a good/fun storyline. Can't praise this much more.

Length: 13 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 1 out of 5.

13 episodes of fail. That's all I can really say to sum it up. The only good features about this anime was the art - And even that was relatively average, in comparison to anime for it's time. An afterthought of a storyline, thrown in with random encounters that make absolutely little fuckin' sense. The humor is poor, at best (I didn't laugh once) and they decided to self-censor a majority of the action. The dialogue is complete suck. I've seen better dialogue in daycare stories. The characters are flat, lacking any sort of change - and seem to take the archtype of their time and exaggerate the fuck out of it, to obnoxious proportions. Watching this anime made me feel that punching myself in the nuts would've been more enjoyable.

Edited to add:
That and I am currently unemployed and not going to school. I figure I have some time to kill while waiting for applications to go through. The most depressing thing, so far, is that it took my 2 and a half days to finish a 50 episode series, from start to finish. Knocking out 8-12 episodes a day isn't nothin' to me, now. I'm burnin' through all this good anime like I do with books - Too fuckin' quickly.

Well now. This was one perverted, ill-intentioned comedy that had me laughing and rolling my eyes. This is a lolicon series that presents the consequences in a socially realistic manner with strong emphasis on the difficulties of being a child. And, to turn the tables on the viewer, the loli is the one who wants it >> Other than being extremely awkward, this was a pretty cute anime. Hopefully, having watched this series, you won't think me too much of a creep for saying I enjoyed it.

"Burn it with Fire?" is my immediate response to this anime. Seriously, I already have enough rage for the moe' blob as it is.

And really, if a show wanted to address the issue of sexualized minors in otoku culture, then is it really a good idea to pander the issue in the first place?

Oh, I see. To each his own? I enjoyed it, from a non-loli-sexual stand. The anime itself is a joke by reversing roles but, beyond the intended comedy aspect, it also has an interesting enough story.

This is an anime series I've been watching, on and off, for the past month. I was afraid to finish it because I liked it, that much. The storyline is refreshingly new - And I like it! The music is fantastic, it just fits so well with the overall anime. It's very cultured and gives a great atmosphere. The characters are fun and constantly developing depth - And the wit put into the script is good. Very well-written story with good plot twists. I'm eagerly awaiting the 3rd season!

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Psychological, Romance, Supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 12 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

No idea where to begin. First off, it's an anime based off of the graphic novel - A beautiful romance circling around the story of multiple characters. It has it's light-hearted moments but it eventually evolves into a heart-wrenching drama. Towards the end, I felt like I had something clawing at my heart and throat - That's how frighteningly powerful the feelings, in the anime, felt to me. The music was beautiful - It really built the atmosphere around the series.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Erotica, Tournament
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 13 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Take Street Fighter characters, Dragon Ball Z power raging, and a soft core hentai - And throw it into one big orgy - and you're in the rough ballpark of Ikki Tousen. Pretty horrible dialogue but it made me laugh, as it was intended. So many shots of ass, tits and vag - It's not even funny. Girls going crazy fighting girls - And, somehow, all their attacks manage to leave each other almost completely nude - Save for some scraps of cloth that miraculously manage to hide their nipples. Pretty over-dramatised fight scenes/tactics, the music wasn't anything noticeable but the plot was good enough to keep me watching. It was good enough that I'll most likely watch the Sequel.

Sequel: Ikki Tousen: Dragon Destiny

It's a goddamn movie. Unless you consider Saving Private Ryan to not be a movie? Certainly it's more of a movie than the transformers crap that came out.

"Point is, what's so wonderful is that every one of these flowers has a specific relationship with the insect that pollinates it. There's a certain orchid that looks exactly like a certain insect so the insect is drawn to this flower, its double, its soul mate, and wants nothing more than to make love to it. And after the insect flies off, spots another soul-mate flower and makes love to it, thus pollinating it. And neither the flower nor the insect will ever understand the significance of their lovemaking. I mean, how could they know that because of their little dance the world lives? But it does. By simply doing what they're designed to do, something large and magnificent happens. In this sense they show us how to live - how the only barometer you have is your heart. How, when you spot your flower, you can't let anything get in your way."

Kurogane no Linebarrel - Finished

(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/KuroganenoLinebarrels.jpg)

Genre: Action, Science fiction, Comedy, Romance, Mech
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 24 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 3 out of 5.

It's been awhile since I've had time to watch an anime from start to finish. Been working on this one for a little while, piece by piece. Even though it was 24 episodes long, it didn't feel like it was long enough but it was a good anime with a decent enough theme. Worked in some nice, unexpected plot twists that I enjoyed. In an age where mechs are a common force, Boy meets Girl from an alternate dimension - Boy is saved by girl then, in turn, the boy does the saving (of the world), etc. Fun enough, though the music was somewhat repetitive but not annoyingly so or anything. I enjoyed the fact that they went out of their way to blend 3D and animation together.

Onegai Teacher - Finished

(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/OnegaiTeacher.jpg)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance, Science fiction
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 15 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 4 out of 5.

Finished this off in one go. This was a fun romance. The setting was pretty unrealistic but the deeper meanings were present and I enjoyed them. From first glance, I figured it for a pretty "shallow" and one-tracked anime but I'm glad I was wrong. The music was nice - Fit relatively well with the anime. The ending was very heart felt and uplifting. Didn't leave me with a bitter taste in my mouth, like some anime tend to do.

Edited to add:
Totally found a spin-off series, taking place in the same place, supposedly a year after the first series ends - Focused around different characters but, within the first episode, it's already shown a few of the original characters. AWESOME!

Nope, because it's a videogame.

Summer Wars - Finished!

(http://www.devildead.com/visuels/affiches/10465-1.jpg)

I just finished watching an anime movie called "Summer Wars". Basically the world is run through an internet avatar program called Oz. This program gets hacked by a mysterious person, who starts causing havoc. It falls upon a specific family, which the main math-genius protagonist is visiting, to stop it. It was pretty sweet. Also, it had a bad ass grandma.



(Alterations to this post as suggested by Gunnerblaster. What a lovely picture find.)

Suh-weet.

I know how text sometimes doesn't feel like it gives enough credit to a good show/movie/anime - So a badass visual to help put it into perspective always helps.

Seeing pictures + commentary makes me, personally, more inclined to search up and watch it instead of just plain commentary.

Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn - Finished!

(http://rathausartprojects.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/evildead2.jpg)

This was equally badass. Basically a recap of the first, minus most of the first movie, within the first half hour. Evil Dead II was, in the easiest way of putting it, a parallel movie of the first, set in an "alternate" setting.

Hanna (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0993842/)

(http://www.iboxmovie.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Hanna-2011-movie.jpg)

Genre: Action, Crime, Mystery
Director: Joe Wright
Rating: PG-13
Length: 111 min

"A 16-year-old who was raised by her father to be the perfect assassin is dispatched on a mission across Europe, tracked by a ruthless intelligence agent and her operatives."

Just saw this in theatre.

Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

This was just one god damn amazing movie. Until my date mentioned the movie, I hadn't even heard of it's existence. From the get go, it's intriguing and it has such an awesome, opening "hook" that just really grabs your attention - From start to finish. Violent, action-packed with a good storyline. The music is pretty fantastic, as well.

The Way Back

(http://www.gugglet.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/the-Way-Back-posters.jpg)

Genre: Adventure, Drama
Director: Peter Weir
Rating: PG-13
Length: 133 min

"Siberian gulag escapees walk 4000 miles overland to freedom in India, during World War II."

This was a beautiful movie of the saddest type of survival. A pain (for me) to dig up the right websites to watch it, in it's entirety, but it was more than worth it. There aren't any special effects or overly dramatic soundtrack - It's just the struggle for survival, caught in it's entirety.

The Lovely Bones (2009)

(http://www.skullbunnie.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/The-Lovely-Bones-Intl-Poster-10-12-09-kc1.jpg)

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Thriller
Director: Peter Jackson
Rating: PG-13
Length: 135 min

"Centers on a young girl who has been murdered and watches over her family - and her killer - from heaven. She must weigh her desire for vengeance against her desire for her family to heal."

This was just one heart-wrenching movie to watch. At parts, it made me sick to my stomach - At others, I was just left speechless. This movie is quite literally a mix between reality and an ever-shifting dream, switching between a beautiful, blissful dream to one of nightmarish proportions. I wish I could say more. I really liked this movie.

Edited to add:
It had a pretty beautiful soundtrack - Example (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmC_RnTzjho)

City of Ember (2008)

(http://www.redboxcodes.com/sites/redboxcodes.com/files/movies/CityofEmber_2176.jpg)

Genre: Adventure, Family, Fantasy
Director: Gil Kenan
Rating: PG-13
Length: 90 min

"For generations, the people of the City of Ember have flourished in an amazing world of glittering lights. But Ember's once powerful generator is failing ... and the great lamps that illuminate the city are starting to flicker."

This is a pretty good family movie. Interesting enough storyline - Easy plot to follow. For any Fallout fans, out there, you might get an enjoyable kick out of this movie. Set beneath the earth's surface, "Ember City" exists as the last city of mankind - Following nuclear war, etc. The music is fitting enough - Nothing too noticeable. No "deeper" messages (that I was able to discern) to be pried from the story. Overall, it's not a favorite nor is it remarkable, but it was enjoyable.

"A Marine Staff Sergeant who has just had his retirement approved goes back into the line of duty in order to assist a 2nd Lieutenant and his platoon as they fight to reclaim the city of Los Angeles from alien invaders."

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Sci-fi
Director: L.Q. Jones
Rating: R
Length: 91 min

"A post-apocalyptic tale based on a novella by Harlan Ellison. A boy communicates telepathically with his dog as they scavenge for food and sex..."

Oh man - This movie was full of fuckin' win. For a movie made in the 70's, this is some pretty impressive shit. Simple, good'ol fashioned Madmax/Fallout/End of the World story played out pretty well. What brief glimpses into the background of the setting gave some pretty imaginative visuals. I loved the crudeness of it, especially for it's time.

Overall, good shit. Thanks to WP for drawing my attention to it.

And it had one fucking sweet ending.

I just finished the Firefly series.  Kinda shocked I missed that for 9 years.  I think Moe said it was the best Sci-Fi Western, I'm gonna go ahead and give the nod (Outland really isn't that good).  I guess I can see why they made Serenity.  If Fox was canning the show for poor ratings, you might as well tie up the loose ends (and get Chiwetel Ejiofor to play the villain, neat).  You really don't have to be a super huge nerd to enjoy this show, so I'm gonna hang the blame on poor marketing.  I hadn't heard of the show when it was on (though I've never been a huge TV watcher).

I'm actually gonna buy the RPG books they supposedly made, because I'm such a fanboy for errata.

P.S.  Gorram is the most addictive fictional word I think I've ever heard, and what is the deal with the Preacher's past!?

"An autistic woman with powerful martial art skills looks to settle her ailing mother's debts by seeking out the ruthless gangs that owe her family money."

Recommended to me by Chettaman. Subtitled Taiwanese action movie about a daughter's simple love for her mother. I enjoyed it - Lots of action and fighting. The storyline itself was pretty interesting.

Yeah. It's pretty fucking whacky, as far as any sensible timeline goes.

While watching it, I just had to keep reminding myself, "This is totally some fairytale land."

I originally expected to be something completely different. I had an idea, years ago, for a pretty unique story about the story of little Red Riding hood actually revolving around an order of crimson cloaked werewolf hunters. In hindsight, it's kind've like Claymore.

Well.  What to say?  Overall, the plot itself was weak from the start and the lack of character development was disappointing.  Much of the actual dialogue just seemed...unnecessary and it did little to further the storyline.  But when you have a sketchy story to begin with, I guess maybe you try to fill in some of the gaps with dialogue?  Lots of saying the same thing (nothing) a bunch of different ways.  Smattered throughout the film were continuity errors, but at least those tend to be somewhat amusing.  I thought that most of the actors were well cast, I would have liked more from Robert though, as a lead role I thought he was rather...flat. ( ::) terrible, I know...)

Surprisingly, what was most enjoyable was the musical score and the cinematography.  For a film with such a B-movie plot, I was rather impressed with the technical aspects.  The use of different, unusual camera angles kept things interesting though, and the use of sound effects/music to create the mood was impeccable.  If the cinematography and the sound had been sub-par as well, I doubt I'd have endured the whole thing.  The film itself was very well-crafted but instead of being a full length movie it should have been a 15 or 20 minute short, it would have been fantastic.

Loved every second of it.

God save my soul - Now I have to go to the movies to watch the final one.

Did a little bit of sneaking around at the movies, the other night, and watched these two movies - back to back, in 3D. The Harry Potter was a pretty good finale and I can't really complain with the overall series, which was delightfully entertaining. The soundtrack for the Harry Potter movies has always been new and very 'fitting' for the movies. Very much how Final Fantasy kept it's main soundtrack somewhat familiar with new additions with the release of newer games, Harry Potter did the same.

Transformers was, you guessed it, an hour and a half of mech's ripping eachother a new one, random sexy model shots with that boyish actor screaming like a little girl. Enjoyable enough. Not something I would pay to see (since I didn't).

Sucker Punch is one of my favorite movies of all time, but for anyone who's never seen it, I would strongly recommend picking up the Extended Cut instead of the normal one, as it has some significant plot scenes that didn't make it into the final movie.

It boggles my mind why they cut out the scene with the High Roller at the end. The stage scene with Blue and Golski I can understand as it was just pretty filler, but the scene I mentioned was everything the movie led up to. And they cut it out! No wonder derisive critics didn't consider it poignant.

I LOVED The New World, it's one of my favorite movies of all time.  Terrence Malick is a genius.  I have loved all his feature length films (DAYS OF HEAVEN), but haven't seen The Tree of Life, yet.

I didn't like The Fountain much at all.

NeiA Under 7 - Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/niea-under-7.jpg)

Quote
From the Creators of Lain! Produced by Yasuyuki Ueda (Lain), character Designs by Yoshitoshi ABe (Lain) and Animation by Triangle Staff (Lain, Catnapped)!

As a starving student, Mayuko’s life consists of many part-time jobs, a small apartment over a bathhouse, and sleepless study nights.
Unfortunately for her sanity, this hard life is complicated by Niea. Niea is a young 7th class under-alien who is living in Mayuko’s closet, building flying saucers out of trash.

Genre: Comedy, Science fiction, Slice of life
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 13 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 3 out of 5.

Ah, I really enjoyed this anime. A lot of silly stuff in an otherwise 'realistic' setting (very "slice of life"ish). The music was nice, calm and mood-fitting but nothing overtly amazing. There wasn't any serious plotline to follow - Just following along with a Japanese female cram student's life when mixed with a free-loading, hyperactive alien girl. It was something I enjoyed watching slowly (about 1 episode every other night).

he turned the chick's head around in a way that would break a human chick's neck and grudge-sexed her so hard it would kill a bitch.

not that I'm breaking it down in the most vulgar possible way, but seriously, that was the most screwed up sex scene ever.

but this week's true blood was the best episode period.

Set in the 16th century, a sheriff working on a series of murders has to choose between his conscience and protecting his family when he's tied to the crimes.

Very Armageddon-esque.  Lots of murder, corruption and betrayal.  Based loosely on the Spanish Inquisition, this movie unfolds slowly and by the time it was over I was in the mood to backstab, loot, and assume the role of a noble.

Meh Portal isn't that great of a game anyways. I'm still kicking myself for buying number 2. It's way too easy, way too short, way to repetitive. It basically become a game of "find the while wall". And where the fuck is my custom map maker? Gay! Not worth the 50$ The first game was alright, but the second was just a massive grab for cash.

Title: Re: What are you currently watching?
Post by: RogueGunslinger on August 25, 2011, 09:30:06 AM
It stooped being unique after the first game, which even that game's shortness was probably it's saving grace. The second game really drove home the repetitiveness, and I found myself just going through the later parts inorder to complete that game. Co-op was much the same experience. I'll admit that both games were pretty funny though. But that's hardly what I look for in video games.

Valve released the map kit, so I dunno where that gripe is coming from. Portal 2's gameplay is admittedly dumbed down (as is evident in the dev commentary) but every other aspect of the game (like the fantastic writing) more than makes up for that.



Oh, this isn't a portal thread. Um. I'm watching Darker Than Black on netflix. Not really an anime person, but it's pretty damn good, and amazingly, Funimation used more than three voice actors for the dubs.

In a voice actor's defense, those guys/gals can be pretty hardcore at voice acting. I've known of one voice actor for voice act for multiple characters, with different tones in voice, and I never even knew until I looked it up.

Rozen Maiden - Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/rozenmaiden.png)

Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rozen_Maiden
Rozen Maiden (ローゼンメイデン?) is a manga series created by Peach-Pit. The story centers on Jun Sakurada, a young hikikomori boy that forms a bond with Shinku, a living doll of the "Rozen Maiden" series, who was created by the mysterious dollmaker Rozen hundreds of years ago. The series examines the living habits and personality of each of the Rozen Maidens whom Jun encounters, as well as their quest to become the perfect girl, named "Alice".

Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 12 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 4 out of 5.

For an anime series basically revolving around a extremely antisocial young boy who plays with "living" dolls who do epic battle with one another in order to become the "perfect" girl, I was actually surprised and pretty intrigued by this anime. It has some pretty funny/cute moments along with some pretty emotionally gripping parts that really take the viewer off-guard. Overall, I liked it. Good music, basic art - nothing fancy but nothing shoddy either.

Looking forwards to Season 2 (Anime) and starting the Manga since the Anime and Manga were said to split completely, as far as storyline is concerned.

Gundam Seed - Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/Gundam_Seed.jpg)

Quote
Heliopolis, a so-called neutral space colony was holding a top-secret weapons research facility, producing Gundams for the Earth Alliance. ZAFT, which is composed of Coordinators (genetically modified/upgraded humans), attacks Heliopolis, stealing 4 out of the Alliance's 5 Gundams. In the battlefield, civilian Kira Yamato stumbles upon the Strike, the last remaining Gundam of the alliance, and is forced to pilot it. In the midst of battle he encounters his best friend, Athrun Zala, as one of the hijackers of the 5 Gundams, who sides with ZAFT. Being a Coordinator, he is the only one who can pilot the Gundam. But Kira is not with ZAFT, even though they're his own kind, nor the Alliance. Since the Alliance is the only place he could turn to at the time, he sides with them. He pilots the Gundam to protect his friends, and to fight his best friend, which pains both of them. It's a war between individual beliefs.

Genre: Action, Drama, Science Fiction, Mecha, Military, Space
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 50 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

First Update
Started this series a little over a day ago and I'm 3/4th the way through it. Storyline starts off relatively linear but it starts to mix it up mid-way through the series and gets really interesting. One of the biggest annoyances though with this anime is the re-usage of "action scenes" for different parts. I'm pretty sure I've seen the same robots blown up in the exact same way about a dozen times. Of course, overall, it's a decent anime so I'm willing to overlook things like that. I like it - I'll continue watching it - and when it's finished, I'll watch the second season.

Final Update
Well this series had a pretty intense wrap up, that's for sure. The plotline did a nice little curve from it's beginnings, which is always a plus for a long-winded series. You can kind of guess what's going to happen as you watch the series but it's still pretty shocking when it all goes down. It makes me wonder; how did they manage a second season?

Gundam Seed Destiny - Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/Gundam_Seed_Destiny15326112.jpg)

Quote
Cosmic Era 73. Though the signing of a peace treaty brought the war between the Naturals and Coordinators to an apparent close, tensions fueled by the continued threat of Blue Cosmos continue to run high. During a conference between PLANT chairman Gilbert Dullindal and Orb representative Cagalli Yula Athha concerning the threat of a new military arms race, an Alliance special forces team attacks the ZAFT base they’re meeting at and makes off with three new Gundam mobile suits. Forced to pursue them, Shinn Asuka of ZAFT and Athrun Zala of Orb set out aboard the new space battleship Minerva, and engage the retreating Alliance strike team in combat. But just as they catch up to the fleeing ship, the crew of the Minerva receives word of an even greater catastrophe in the making, which will undoubtedly re-ignite the brutal war between the Naturals & Coordinators all over again.

Ah, man. That was a pretty good sequel to Gundam Seed. Old and new characters mixing it up in the storyline with some good little twists, here and there. Nothing too complicated. A big push on how far humanity will go for 'peace'. The music, although repetitive, is pretty nice. Lots of replay action clips that tends to get stale after awhile. Overall, I enjoyed this series (Both the original and this sequel). A good way to wrap it up.

Tangled - Finished!

I've wanted to watch this since I saw the previews. Why? No idea.

In the end, I shamelessly enjoyed the Hell out of this movie, just like I figured I would.

There were a couple singing parts and I usually cringe when those come along but, meh, I didn't mind it. I actually liked the singing. It didn't feel forced.

This anime was 'Meh'. Not bad but not particularly good. It had some interesting plot points to it but I don't think it touched nearly enough on it, instead just focusing on the characters. The music was... Fine, I guess, but it wasn't anything special. There is a 2nd season that I'm planning on watching now, in hopes that it'll shed some more light on some of the subtly mentioned plots in the first season.

Well shit. I wasn't expecting this. Half the size of it's first series but even more intense. Whereas in the first season, everything was relatively censored and kiddy-grade - Everything in Season 2 had a much more mature quality, including a lot more graphic and violent scenes. Caught off guard by the almost completely 180 turn around, I can say that I enjoyed this season and wished it was as long as it's predecessor. Didn't touch on some of the points that seemed to have been cut out from the first but it did go into detail on other key points that I was hoping it would. Overall, it was much more enjoyable then Season 1.

Another great Korean movie. Tense and brutal. A good suspense/thriller. In the vein of I Saw The Devil, with less gore and suspense, mrer action, sort of like The Man From Nowhere.

It's about an ex detective turned pimp who tries to find his girls who have gone missing. Breaks up the formula for the hunt for a serial killer. Really good movie that I suggest to everyone.

Rozen Maiden: Traumend (Season 2) - Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/RozenMaidenTraumend.jpg)

Quote
As summer break arrives for the students, Jun Sakurada is busily studying on his own in the library, making up for time lost while he had confined himself to his home. Meanwhile, his Rozen Maiden doll, Shinku, has been having troubling dreams of late. The pain and sadness of defeating Suigintō was overwhelming, despite the inevitable battle they waged. After waking suddenly from a nightmare, she finds Suigintō's companion spirit wandering; upon giving chase, she discovers that the seventh Doll—Barasuishou—has awakened. She now realizes that Suigintō's fate may very well befall the other Dolls, for the appearance of the last Doll signals the beginning of the end of the Alice Games.

Liked this Season as much as I did the first. The music fit with the scenes, the storyline had a good flow. Only issue I had with it was the semi lack-luster ending which didn't feel like it did it justice. It felt like they finished Season 2 with a Season 3 already in works (I hope).

I suppose I need a index for what my personal ratings imply.

0-1: Probably didn't even finish due to how bad it was.
2-3: Amusing enough to finish, but nothing too entertaining/original.
4: Enjoyable and entertaining. High re-watch value.
5: Best of the best. Instant hook, original/well-thought storylines/characters.

This was a genuinely intriguing and "fun" series. Very original and refreshing storyline with good characters. The comedy isn't over-exaggerated (it's kept moderately realistic, although it has it's typical anime-style comedy). Fucking loved the music, namely the intro songs. There was relatively "strong" character development. A few arch-types but it was interesting to see how each was portrayed. No excessive repeat-enemies. Definitely going to have to jump into the second season to see where the somewhat enigmatic storyline leads.

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun - Finished!

Genre: action, comedy, drama, fantasy, science fiction
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 24 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 9.5 out of 10.

The setting of this season is that it focuses primarily on all the "side" characters of the main series - The time frame of the events within the series is supposed to be parallel to that of To Aru Majutsu no Index Season 1.

Personally - I loved this. Much more "in-depth" than the actual main series, this season did a fantastic job of developing the characters and storyline. What appears to be random coincidences all tie together in the end - Which is just absolutely fantastic. Each character has her own story and I feel each had really great development within only the 24 episodes the series had. Nothing about the story felt rushed and the characters themselves had relatively original backgrounds and their own issues that really helped flesh them out.

Heh - This side series set my standards relatively high for the second season of the Main series - I only hope it doesn't disappoint.

Genre: action, comedy, drama, fantasy, science fiction
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 24 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 7.5 out of 10.

Unfortunately, Season 2 of the Index series didn't quite compare to Season 1of the Index series and was, in my opinion, of poorer quality than the To Aru Kagaku no Railgun series. Still, that doesn't mean this was a bad anime season. On the contrary, the music was new (didn't reuse every musical clip from Season 1) and they also had carry-over themes from the parallel series, To Aru Kagaku no Railgun - Which I thought was pretty awesome. The only thing that made this of "poorer" quality is that it lacked much character development (Yes, there was character development - just not on the scale of the previous two seasons). The storyline has my head spinning. You think you have it figured out and it turns out to get even -deeper- so that's definitely a plus.

Overall, although not a "OMG  Incredible" season, it was enjoyable and the way Season 2 leaves off, you know there is undoubtedly another adjacent series or direct continuation in the works due to just how well the storyline was starting to build up.

The Lincoln Lawer.

 I'd give it a 7 out of 10. Good, not as great as the reviews, but still good. Mconaghey(sp) is awesome, nearly couldn't tell him from Josh Lucas, which made it a pretty cool movie. They're both good actors, really.

It's slow, strangely paced, weird, not very fun, and boring. But somehow, Melancholia may be my favorite movie of the year. It really resonates with me for some reason.


Watch this movie and tell me what you think.

Homeland. It took me a few episodes to admit it but this show is actually really good. Mainly because every actor is pretty much brilliant. Suggest this one to ya'll. First season is only 6 episodes so it's not hard to burn through. Last episode airs next week.

It's about an american POW for 8+ years who is brought home. Right when an agent over there gets an al-qaeda terrorist to cooperate before he dies, saying that an american POW was been turned. They also find out that an attack on american soil is imminent.

Really though the two main actors are really good.

Shingetsutan Tsukihime - Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/ShingetsutanTsukihime.jpg)

Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery, Romance, Supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 12 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 4 out of 5.

This anime was actually originally developed from a graphic novel, which is basically a "choose your own story" picture book. After playing through the Graphic Novel, I gave the anime a shot and I can say I was pleased. Although I had a rough idea of what was going to happen, the anime did a lot to explain the events and reasonings behind some of the things happening which the Graphic novel, unfortunately, did not. Simple music but it was good and memorable (namely the opening/closing themes).

I just finished watching 'The Scarlet Road', which is an Australian documentary primarily about sex workers and, secondly, about providing those services to people with disabilities.

It was actually pretty beautiful and it made me realize that I've never really acknowledged that disabled persons want sexual relations, too. Anyway, if you don't want to read the about synopsis about the movie, the direct megavideo link is here:

I remember flipping from depressed nihilistic, existential pre-teen to optimistic, thrilled with life teen (and, adult, until the end of time) in the course of about three months. unfortunately that's not what happens to these guys. its interesting, how if something was long enough or important enough in your life, anything moderately relevant reminds you of it.

Have you ever watched a "good" anime? You wouldn't be uncool, but you'd be seriously limiting yourself to a wealth of awesome stories and characters if you forsake the whole category based on a few bad apples.

Actually, here: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/ratings-anime.php?top50=best_bayesian (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/ratings-anime.php?top50=best_bayesian)

If you've heard of it, and it's on that list, you probably want to watch it.


I'll just name some stuff I liked a lot. These are just the tip of the iceberg.

Sword of the Stranger (movie)

Samurai Champloo (series)

Fullmetal Alchemest: Brotherhood (series)

Trigun (series) - It's a bit goofy, watched it when I was real young and it was my favorite for a long time. Some may not like it.

Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal (4 hour long episodes)

Grave of the Fireflies (movie)

Black Lagoon (series)



God damn I keep thinking of more good ones.

Dude watch it with subtitles. American voice actors are trash.

But.. if you don't like subs, then Cowboy Bebop is pretty good voice acting.


When you watch it in subs though every single line is delivered perfectly(sort of like when you're reading a book). Because it's hard to tell if they have shitty acting in a  different language, heh.

Yeah - I have to agree with Rogue. I used to watch anime with English voice actors, but then I took an arrow in the knee, but after being forced to watch a few episodes in Japanese with English subtitles, I'm glad I did. Couldn't stand watching English voice over anime afterwards.

Spartacus - Finished!

Genre: Drama, Action, Violence, Historical
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 13 Episodes, 54 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Betrayed by the Romans. Forced into slavery. Reborn as a Gladiator. The classic tale of the Republic’s most infamous rebel comes alive in the graphic and visceral new series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Torn from his homeland and the woman he loves, Spartacus is condemned to the brutal world of the arena where blood and death are primetime entertainment. But not all battles are fought upon the sands. Treachery, corruption, and the allure of sensual pleasures will constantly test Spartacus. To survive, he must become more than a man. More than a gladiator. He must become
a legend.

A Star Wars episode which aired yesterday on Cartoon Network--- "Slaves of the Republic." the mini-plot has yet to be concluded.

i didn't watch the whole thing, but it gives you a real good, long glimpse into the world of a particular race's slave trade. its not really something you can relate to Arm, because these slaves are more knowledgable about their worlds, I doubt any of them are illiterate, and their masters are particularly oppressive, which makes the slaves more bitter and vengeful as a group than anything on Arm, but it was fun to watch.

I watched that show with a friend on her laptop, once.  It was after I'd seen Serenity, but before I'd seen Firefly, so I kept thinking to myself, "I know that guy from somewhere."  Anyway, Fillion is funny, and that show was better than I'd prepared myself for it to be (based on said friend's taste).

Finished season one of that. Now my wife has us onto Downton Abbey. I think the first episodes are on the Masterpiece Theater website, on PBS, and on Hulu. It takes place in a noble British house starting in 1912.

Asura Cryin - Finished!
(http://i566.photobucket.com/albums/ss106/vankezman/asura.jpg)

Genre: action, comedy, fantasy, supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 13 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 3.5 out of 10.

Personally, I don't even know why I'm watching this. I suppose it's just to get it off my "list" of anime to watch. Regardless, this anime sucks - for lack of better words. Poorly written, single-dimension characters. Storyline had potential of being interesting, but they fucked it all up by trying to cram it all together. Literally, I felt like I missed a couple episodes between episode 2 and episode 3. The fight music is about the only thing I enjoyed - But even that got a bit repetitive. What surprises me is; they somehow came up with a 2nd season for this. Main character is dumb as rocks, relatively useless, and the side characters are more interesting. It's sad that I have more things to say about a bad anime than I do about a good one. This most certainly falls into my category of "bad anime".

Also - The fight scenes aren't very impactive. Kind've boring. I found myself going, "Oh... Another fight... With the same bad guy from half a dozen episodes ago..." The main "hero" constantly gets his shit handed to him, and I'm down for that, but unlike other anime where, you know, there's some sort of struggle to get better/stronger/etc., this dude is like, "Oh... Well... That sucks. Oh well!" and on to the next fight - Where he is promptly beaten again, then all surprised and shit, when he's beaten.

Asura Cryin 2 - Currently Incomplete! Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/AsuraCryin.jpg)

Genre: action, comedy, fantasy, supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 13 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 1.5 4.5 out of 10.

You know, I figured, "Hey, maybe they realized how pretty terrible the first season was and decided to revamp it a little."

I was wrong.

It's just as fucking terrible as the first season, except WORSE! If the storyline didn't make sense in Season 1, it sure as fucking Hell barely makes sense in Season 2. I'm just trying to finish this series just to be done with it. Again, no character development except, for fuckin' once, the main character has a brief moment of clarity when he realizes he's absolutely useless. 18 of 24 episodes into the series - He realizes this.

Random enemies and bosses that just make no sense, at all. It just annoys the living Hell out of me. Everyone wants to kill this kid and the only reason he's not dead yet is because he's too busy letting random friends die for him.

Final Review
So, I made the first review about halfway through the 2nd season. Although it doesn't do much to redeem the series, it does finally get better - Albeit not by too much. If they could've kept the same 'flow' and tone of the last four episodes throughout the series, it would've made this a much more enjoyable anime to watch.

Eh. The ending was... Satisfactory but this isn't an anime I would watch again.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 12 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 6 out of 10.

Quote
Within the story, in the year 1850s, a vampire who would later be known as the Kowloon King emerged in Hong Kong and began spreading his lineage to others. The Kowloon Children, as his bloodline came to be known, differed from other bloodlines in that all humans bitten by a Kowloon Child would become Kowloon Children themselves, even without a direct infusion of that bloodline's blood. Any existing vampire also bitten by a Kowloon Child would become one of the Kowloon Children. The ensuing chaos made the existence of vampires, which until then had been living in secret, known to the entire world. The conflict culminated in the Holy War, a final battle in which humans and vampires worked together to exterminate the Kowloon Children. After the crusade, the Special Zone - a city for vampires to live - was established on the sea outside of Japan. After the war, it was announced that all vampires had been killed, and most humans were kept ignorant of the existence of the Special Zone. Jiro Mochizuki, who became known as the Silver Blade, is a hero of the Crusade who defeated the Kowloon King, although he lost his lover and was betrayed by a close friend in the process.

Ten years later, Jiro heads to Hong Kong with his little brother, Kotaro Mochizuki, in hopes of reaching The Special Zone, a thriving secret city where Vampires live.

Eh. This was an okay anime. Just something to kill time with, more than anything else, but I enjoyed it. Only a dozen episodes long and the storyline wasn't terrible, although they didn't go through too much effort to make it unique. Kind've leaves you in the dark, right up until the end - Then you're like, "Huh... So that's why." Opening & closing music themes were the same throughout the dozen episodes, not much variation to the usual music, decent japanese voice acting, and the character's weren't too terribly developed.

Angel Beats! - Finished!

Director: Seiji Kishi
Series Composition: Jun Maeda
Script: Jun Maeda
Genre: Action, Comedy, Drama, Fantasy, Romance
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 13 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 10 out of 10.

Quote
The story takes place in the afterlife and focuses on Otonashi, a boy who lost his memories of his life after dying. He is enrolled into the afterlife school and meets a girl named Yuri who invites him to join the Battlefront—an organization she leads which fights against God. The Battlefront fight against the student council president Angel, a girl with supernatural powers.

Angel Beats! takes place at a high school acting as a Purgatory, where students learn to give up any lingering attachments they still have from life before continuing to an afterlife or reincarnation. While the injury or cause of death are gone, those in the afterlife school can still feel pain or other things as they did when they were alive, as well as dying again, only to awaken with no injuries several minutes later.

A beautiful anime. Perhaps one of the best I've had the pleasure of watching. The animations are fluid and 'modern', the voice acting (in Japanese) is very convincing and fresh. The music is absolutely incredible! And, most appealing of all, was the storyline. The problems most short-series anime face is trying to cover too much storyline without having enough episodes to do it - But this was not a problem for this anime. Each episode propelled the story appropriately along, without rushing or "leaving out" parts. The ending had me gripped with emotion and it was one of the better finale's for a good anime that I've enjoyed. I gave this a personal 10 out of 10 because it had me laughing, choking up, happy, eager with anticipation - And so much more.

I know most people gag at the idea of a high school anime and although the description lists it as such, it's much more and I highly suggest you actually watch it before marking it off.

I finished BattleStar Galactica today.  The first two seasons are great, and it starts going downhill on the third.  It's worth watching all of it, though, even if you have to soldier through season 4 to get the end.

Now, I've seen all the big sci-fi, with the exception of Dr. Who ...  and that's just too large to start, right now.
Title: Re: What are you currently watching?
Post by: Marauder Moe on February 04, 2012, 10:43:33 PM
With Dr. Who, you can most definitely start with the "modern" series (Christopher Eccleston as the 9th Doctor) rather than trying to get through the older stuff, which is really really campy.  You could even skip the Eccleston season if you want and go straight to David Tenant, but I thought the first season wasn't bad.  On a whole, though, the modern series is most definitely worth while.
Title: Re: What are you currently watching?
Post by: lordcooper on February 05, 2012, 02:41:35 AM
Moe speaks the truth.  I've tried watching the 'classic' episodes and it's just not the same.  I'd have probably loved them if I was born about thirty years earlier, but they're way too dated to be really worth watching IMO.  I tried to estimate how long it would take to watch them, and it was around four years (assuming you watch two hours every day) IIRC.  So yeah, you can probably just start with Eccleston.

Among those who lived through the disaster was Ganta Igarashi, now a middle school student finally getting a footing in his own life... that is, until the day the \'Red Man\' appears at his school and turns his world upside down again. Ganta is sentenced to death and sent to the bizarre prison known as \'Deadman Wonderland.\'

Ganta Igarashi has been convicted of a crime that he hasn't committed, and sent to a new, privately owned and operated prison, where the inmates are the main attraction in a modern day twist to the gladiatorial coliseums of ancient times. Throw in a healthy dose of weird little girl, some new-found super powers, and a little conspiracy theory, and you have Deadman Wonderland.

First and foremost, this entire anime is just fucking sick and insane. Literally. It's so violent and crude that even I was just surprised. The opening theme and the rest of the music is pretty fucking good. The animations are top-notch. The storyline starts off pretty surprisingly, leaving me going, "what the fuck just happened!?" I kept thinking to myself, "This is just absolutely insane" - through the first couple episodes. I loved it. The storyline is pretty good.

Only reason I gave this an 8 out of 10 is because, like the problem most dozen-long series goes, it felt too short but the ending left a positive continuation for a second season, which will be much approved.

Sexy, sexy Witchblade. Even though I'm a straight female.

This show is just such good quality, and I love it alot. I'd cry if even one good guy died. Including the fellow who's only been in two episodes for a total of about ten minutes. The good guys are all lovable and the bad guys are all intriguing. The relationships between people seem authentic and nothing is over or under-dramatized, it just happens.

Kuro-Nai - Finished!

Quote
Based on a series of light novels, Kure-nai is about the adventures and misadventures of 16-year-old Kurenai Shinkurou. Shinkurou is an authority in settling disputes between people, and finds his life turned upside down one day when he is assigned as a bodyguard for Kuhouin Murasaki, the daughter of a powerful plutocratic family.

Ah, this was a nice anime. The music and animations were decent and the storyline was surprisingly fresh and good. Aside from the "main" two characters, it doesn't do much to delve into the lives of the other characters - But with the flow of the series, it doesn't pose much of a problem. Most, if not all of the characters, had relatively 'difficult' Japanese which makes remembering individual characters difficult. Story-wise, it just goes to show how insane family tradition can be.

Ryūgamine Mikado is a boy who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro. Masaomi has warned him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: a champion fighter, an informant, and a mysterious gang called "Dollars." Nervous from Masaomi's stories, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city, the Headless Rider astride a black motorcycle. From then on, the existence of supernatural cases and a gang called the Yellow Scarves will rise to the surface, and Ikebukuro will pushed to the breaking point.

Heh. That was a pretty cool anime. Well put together plot. What I loved the most, though, is how it covers each character's perspective - Slowly leading everything together. Really enjoyable to watch. It was funny, but nothing over the top. It was dramatic, but again - nothing over the top. It was pretty supernatural, I must admit, but even then it wasn't to any drastic proportions. Like real life, with a bit of supernatural mixed into otherwise difficult circumstances, regardless. The animations were about average, the music fit well, and the the overall flow of the anime was great.

Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 26 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 9 out of 10.

Quote
In Tokyo, an impenetrable field known as "Hell's Gate" appeared ten years ago. At the same time, psychics who wield paranormal powers at the cost of their conscience also emerged. Hei is one of the most powerful of these psychic agents, and along with his associate, Yin, works for one of the many rival agencies vying to unlock the mysteries of Hell's Gate.

For a 4 year old anime, this was pretty good. It felt almost recent, to be honest. The storyline was very original. It was a pretty interesting anime. Half the episodes ended somewhat grimly. Felt like a action-supernatural-mystery to me, which is always enjoyable. Music wasn't anything special. Didn't stand out but it fit the moods relatively well. Nothing was 'over the top' (no jokey comical scenes, etc.) and the anime was portrayed with realism in mind.

About the only flaw I could pick out of this anime is that some of the episodes seemed a bit... Off-story. Like a filler, but they did help provide a little more to each character, so it wasn't something I'd skip over.

Overall, a good anime which makes me happy to learn that there's a second season which I'll be working on now. Usually, if there's a second season - People assume the first was a terrible cliff-hanger of some sort but, to be honest, even if the season wasn't continued - It managed to wrap up all of the conflicts manageably well.

Length: 12 Episodes, 25 minutes each + 4 OVA, 25 minutes each.

Two years have passed since Hei and Yin escaped the Syndicate after the events of the first season. Making their way to Russia, Hei encounters a young girl named Suou Pavlichenko, whose family is gradually pulled into the war between contractors and various intelligence factions. Meanwhile, Misaki Kirihara has quit her position in Foreign Affairs to begin her own investigations into Hei, the Contractors and the Syndicate.

So, this final season felt like it was more to bring a semi-conclusion to everything. Killed off old characters, introduced new characters - But due to the short length of the series, they didn't have too much to offer, in that sense. This season steered slightly away from the main character of the first, focusing on the new heroine of the series, along with someone else from the first.

They also had some new background music, but again - Nothing too noticeable, except for the fight scenes in which they used a relatively catchy electro-rap beat, which I personally enjoyed.

A good anime with a decent finale but still leaves me kind've... Unfulfilled.

Joseph Jobson, the only man able to control his cursed demonic form, must hunt down the man who cursed him and save the world from apocalypse.

Eh. This wasn't a bad anime, but I wouldn't necessarily say it was great, either. It was an okay anime, but it wasn't very impactful. The character's were... Typical archtypes. The character development was kind've tossed in as an after-thought. Started right off the bat over-dramatizing things and trying to make it too emotional.

The music was okay. The plotline, while definitely not unique, was still good enough. I liked the ideas they implimented - A blend of 3D and animated scenes.

Overall, I felt kind've bored though.

Oh, yeah. That. I wouldn't say that made it horrible but it definitely deviated from the things that made the first season so likeable. They still kept up with the violence, in the 2nd season but there felt like there was less impact behind it, whereas in the first - death was followed by hard lessons.

IS: Infinite Stratos - Finished!

Release: 2011
Director: Yasuhito Kikuchi
Series Composition: Fumihiko Shimo
Genre: action, comedy, romance, science fiction
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 12 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 6 out of 10.

Quote
Infinite Stratos (IS), a weaponized exoskeleton system, has become the dominant tool of warfare and conflict. Unfortunately for the men in society, only women are able to operate Infinite Stratos…with very few exceptions. One of those exceptions is Ichika Orimura, an orphan raised by his older sister, who is herself a famous IS pilot. When his compatibility with Infinite Stratos is discovered after he accidentally touches one at the age of 15, he is given a scholarship and enrolled in a school that specializes in training IS pilots. Which means an interesting life surrounded by girls for this shy, unassuming boy.

For a 2011 anime, this was disappointing. Generic, single-dimension plotline with your typical up-beat anime-ish music. In a world where only women can pilot mechs, a boy can randomly pilot one. No explanation as of to why. He just can and the anime seems content to drop it at that. The characters were simple. No development while over dramatizing random circumstances. Overall, this anime was pretty single-layered. It was a very 'surface' anime with poorly/randomly placed boob jiggles and panty shots.

About the only thing I liked was the movement/action animations, but even those were relatively simple and routine.

Dogs: Bullets & Carnage - Finished!

Release: 2009
Director: Tatsuya Abe
Series Composition: Kiyoko Yoshimura
Genre: action
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 4 Episodes, 15 minutes each.
Personal Rating: N/A out of 10.

Quote
Based off of the Japanese manga series by Shirow Miwa, Dogs is set in a world where violence, crime, genetic manipulation and other cruel scientific experiments have become common. The story focuses on four main characters who, through a series of coincidences, meet as they search for answers to their individual past.

I decided against giving this anime a rating since it was simply too brief and 'scattered' to give a proper review. A gang & gunfight theme. I found it pretty interesting. Although each episode was roughly 15 minutes long, they each had their own story and characters. Each episode focused on one of four characters who (sometimes) briefly crossed paths between episodes, as you soon notice as you watch. For such a short set of episodes, I was kind've impressed at the story and would've loved to have seen this serialized in a full 12 / 24 episode series.

Kamisama Dolls - Finished!
(http://i876.photobucket.com/albums/ab329/oOo_umi-no-mizu_oOo/Album%20Art/kamisamadolls.png)

Release: 2011
Director: Seiji Kishi
Series Composition: Makoto Uezu
Genre: action, romance, science fiction
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 13 Episodes, 25 minutes each + 4 OVA
Personal Rating: 8.5 out of 10.

Quote
Kyouhei Kuga is a young man who has left his small hometown to escape from its anachronistic rules and traditions. He wants to try a new life in Tokyo as a simple university student. In the past he was a seki, title given to individuals who are able to control the mysterious kakashis. Considered as gods in the small Karakami village, the kakashi are ancient wooden wonders able to perform incredible feats. The escape of a seki from the provincial town abruptly brings to Tokyo a handful of other seki who are searching for him. Despite being so far away, Kyouhei is still haunted by the old laws and hatred between the two main families, the Kuga and the Hyuga.

This was a pretty neat anime. I enjoyed the characters, the setting and the storyline - Although this anime suffered from a too-short-to-cover-everything syndrome. The music was good, as well as the animations - Which I enjoyed. My only gripe is that, besides not really delivering a full story explanation, the season ended with a "this story can be continued, but it might not" feeling. Despite it being a relatively good series, it didn't sell all that well. I think under 1,500 units were sold within the opening week, which is pretty low in comparison to other anime/manga series. Might be just taking a bit of time to catch on (I hope) but a second season doesn't look viable.

Still, a decent anime that I enjoyed watching.

Shikabane Hime: Aka - Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/ShikabaneHimeAka.jpg)

Release: 2011
Director: Masahiko Murata
Series Composition: Shou Aikawa
Genre: action, comedy, horror, supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 13 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 9 out of 10.

Quote
Shikabane are the living dead who still work even after they die because of strong attachment or obsession. They attack people and kill them. A boy, Kagami Ohri, was adopted by Tagami Keisei, a Buddhist priest of Kongon Clan, when he was a child, and was raised in an asylum. One night, he encounters a beautiful girl at the temple who works for the chief priest. She is Hoshimura Makina, a Shikabane Hime ,who hunts Shikanabe under the order from Kakusei. Shikabane Hime is the girl created to hunt Shikabane.

I thought this was a pretty awesome anime. Great animation and the music was pretty superb - It was constantly changing, so I never felt like I was listening to the same stale music tracks, over and over again. They fit the music with the mood of the endings, as well, so you wouldn't have a depressing ending suddenly contradicted by some happy, up-beat end credits. The character's own personalities and story lines were all relatively convincing. This anime has a pretty tragic theme that honestly makes me shudder thinking about it.

A good saving factor for this anime is that there is a second series that (I hope) will continue to fill in all the blanks - As well as finish a lot of the key points they left kind've hanging by the end of the 13 episode series.

Shikabane Hime: Kuro (Season 2) - Finished!
(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a180/Gunnerblaster/Anime/shikabanehimekuro.jpg)

Release: 2011
Director: Masahiko Murata
Series Composition: Shou Aikawa
Genre: action, comedy, horror, supernatural
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 12 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 9 out of 10.

Quote
A direct continuation of Shikabane Hime Aka, taking place six months after Tagami Keisei's death at the hands of the Shichisei (Seven Stars), a group of elite Shikabane who act on more than just regrets. As per Keisei's dying wish, Kagami Ouri formed a temporary contract with Makina to save her from degenerating into a Shikabane. Since then, Ouri's been training to become a proper monk so that he can remain contracted to Makina and help her fight against the Shichisei -- the ones who originally killed Makina, the entire Hoshimura family, and now Keisei. However, the traitorous monk Shishidou Akasha has sided with the Shichisei in an attempt to destroy all Shikabane Hime and the entire monk organization that uses them -- Kougon Sect.

For being such a really good series, this anime was full of despair and tragedy. The underlying themes are pretty depressing. Season 2 didn't feel so much like another season since the openings/endings didn't change by much from the first. There wasn't much re-use of musical tracks and the storyline didn't get stale. Overall, I really enjoyed this anime and I'm kind've bitter to see it end.

So good. :)

In a genre driven by "plot" and "action" it is nice to see the zombie apocalypse through the vision of a "character driven" story. Walking Dead is so powerful because it first introduces and entraps you with human beings. The zombies are only there to help reveal the psychological and emotional depths of the living.

Ryūgamine Mikado is a boy who longs for the exciting life of the big city. At the invitation of his childhood friend Masaomi, he transfers to a school in Ikebukuro. Masaomi has warned him about people he doesn't want to cross in the city: a champion fighter, an informant, and a mysterious gang called "Dollars." Nervous from Masaomi's stories, Mikado witnesses an urban legend on his first day in the city, the Headless Rider astride a black motorcycle. From then on, the existence of supernatural cases and a gang called the Yellow Scarves will rise to the surface, and Ikebukuro will pushed to the breaking point.

Heh. That was a pretty cool anime. Well put together plot. What I loved the most, though, is how it covers each character's perspective - Slowly leading everything together. Really enjoyable to watch. It was funny, but nothing over the top. It was dramatic, but again - nothing over the top. It was pretty supernatural, I must admit, but even then it wasn't to any drastic proportions. Like real life, with a bit of supernatural mixed into otherwise difficult circumstances, regardless. The animations were about average, the music fit well, and the the overall flow of the anime was great.

Good show, but I can't say it's as amazing as I was led to believe it was.

Season 2 is by far the worst.  Meaning it's still better than a lot of network TV but doesn't match the levels of awesomeness that 1, 3 and 4 get to.  Then again, if you're just watching it now the show has probably been hyped to death.

Me?  Just finished Walking Dead Season 2, the zombies are awesome and hopefully they'll get the writing down better for next season.  So now I'm watching Eastbound and Down and Justified.  Can't wait for new Game of Thrones.

Bah, who cares about their pasts. I care about what's happening -now-. They have given some information about the pasts of them, I'm not sure that it's necessary to the story to go any deeper into their pasts unless something out of the ordinary regarding that character's makeup comes up. Otherwise, it's just extraneous information. I mean, does it add anything of interest to the story to know that character A once played with a teddy bear as a kid if it doesn't related to anything going on at this point in the story?

I quickly lose interest in stories that spend a lot of time giving you information that in no way relates to what is currently going on in the story. That would make it boring to me.

I'm with Gunnerblaster here.  More character development would have been great.  It annoyed me a bit when it seemed like Lori's character could change from week to week depending on what the writers needed her to say.  The AV Club did a pretty good job dissecting everything that was wrong with it.

Then again, the zombies were awesome.  Check out the comic sometime if you can.  I'm -really- excited for the next season, that story arc was probably the best the comic has had.

Maybe she's bipolar? I've known someone in RL that acted like her so it didn't bother me and seemed to be part of the character. If it is intentional, now there's some depth that those of you who are too focused on being negatively critical are missing.

Post by: Gunnerblaster on March 29, 2012, 05:19:47 PM
I think, due to the lack of background we're given on any of the characters, any changes in their 'normal' personality is something that seems to happen kind've randomly, I'd like to think.

There have been many 'slow times', in my opinion, for a character to share a story or two.

End of Season 3, I learn that Glenn (The asian guy) is originally from Korea. Only piece of his background I've heard from him in 3 seasons. I partially assumed he was an overseas student.

Also towards the end of season 3, Andrea (the one who tried to commit suicide in Season 1 or 2) admits to Dale that, at one point in time, she was a civil attorney or something.

I feel it'd make the characters more substantial (to me) if we at least knew what they were before the attack. Like, Dale for example - I wanted to like his character, but I just couldn't. Since I knew nothing about his past, he just came off as some old guy on a righteous trip that over-assumed shit about people (even if it was conveniently correct).

I almost hated this one.

Especially after the series was over, and somewhere someone read something along the lines of "if you understood the plot, it means you're criminally insane", and EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER at school ran around all, "Hurrrr, I understood every bit of it, hurrrr."

Lol. I'm sure I won't be the first to admit the end left me a little... Confused. The part after the credits.

Of course, a lot of the series was really fucking weird. I still liked it, though. A shame the director,Satoshi Kon, is dead.

Wil Wheaton and guests, Sean Plott (host of “Day9TV”, a Starcraft II dedicated webcast on how to be a better gamer), Grant Imahara (host of Discovery Channel’s “Mythbusters”), and Jenna Busch (geek blogger, writer and host) play Small World.

So it's pretty much Will Wheaton and his guests playing tabletop RPGs and other games every other fridays.

Release: 2010
Director: Steven S. DeKnight
Genre:  Action, Adventure, Biography
Type: Series
Length: 10 Episodes, 45 minutes each.

Fucking beautiful. Had a blast watching the 2nd season. Just as bloody, violent, and full of suspense/story as the first season. Usually, when the main character is swapped out with another actor - It can be pretty damned jarring to the entire series but I feel it worked out well and the 'new' actor for Spartacus fit in perfectly. Great series.

Length: 13 Episodes, 45 minutes each + Beginning Miniseries, 3hours total.

Fraking awesome XP Such a dork, I know. Just finished season 1 inbetween working on some class stuff. Man. Just totally blows me away. Amazed it took me this long to get around to it. Watched a few scattered episodes but finally willed myself to dig up a workable series. Been watching the complete series on Hulu, for free. Few advertisements every 15-20 minutes but they're only a total of 30-60 seconds long.

What can I say? Good music, excellent plot, good character acting, and I'm already starting on season 2.

I watched the entire first season of the new My Little Pony. :-[

It was like cotton candy. Totally saccharine after a few bites, but I just couldn't stop.

However, I would recommend it for anyone's kids. It's got a great message, and some sly meme inclusions and subtle (and in a couple cases, not-so-subtle) nods to other movies/stories that adults will appreciate. It's goofy and doesn't take itself too seriously... but I still can't believe I actually watched all of it.

I can't decide whether my favorite is Twilight Sparkle or Rainbow Dash...

The start of season three is excellent. The rest of that season wobbles around uncertainly. Season four has at least one great story-arc. Still worth the time spent watching, for sure. Then, when you're all done, you can sit back and dream of what could have been.

Don't watch the below unless you've finished watching Battlestar Galactica. Seriously. You'll spoil it.

Heck. You made me just start watching it again. And Exodus Part 2 was great, except that an overweight Jamie Bamber just doesn't shape up very well (even if it was just clever make-up), though that's absolutely the pettiest quibble ever.  :P

Release: 2005
Writer: Sara Stern Levin
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure

Length: 61 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 9 out of 10.

Quote
When the hostile Fire Nation threatens to enslave the Water, Earth, and Air Nations, a reluctant and irresponsible boy must face his destiny as the Avatar, the Chosen One who can restore the world order. This new animated series centers on twelve-year-old Aang, who must forgo his selfish wandering to learn to master his latent powers over the four elements. Only then can he conquer the Firebenders, the evil nation that threatens the world.

This was a pretty awesome series. Very well-animated scenes, music fit very well, and it had a great theme with good underlying messages. Only took me a week to watch the entire series since once I started, it was very hard to stop. Had some awesome characters and it did a good deal of delving into each character's past and persona.

The aliens were called "Chigs" actually.

It's the first show I remember that included a text version of on-line dating. One of the marines would ask the other how they felt a connection with a girl they met on-line only through text. Back in the 90s, digital cameras, and bandwidth were not as plentiful.

Also the AI rebels had four terabytes of data between all of them to store their collective memories :)

Just watched an episode of The Office (US version).  What a load of shite.

The early seasons were decent to good.  It's a different beast than the UK. version though.  There's actually some sort of hope involved in the US Office.  For a few years it was one of the best sitcoms on network TV but the last few seasons are apparently real shitty.  Check out Community or Parks and Recreation if you want a few laughs.
Title: Re: What are you currently watching?
Post by: boog on June 23, 2012, 09:48:12 AM
Parks and Rec REALLY requires you to pay attention to get a lot of the jokes, I feel. I love it, but it's ... not as overtly funny, I guess, as The Office?

And The US Office without Steve Carrell is bogus. It's not even worth watching anymore.

I can't wait for my next DVD to get here from Netflix. "Never Let Me Go"! The reviews are so mixed and really I want to see how it compares to the book (which I LOVED).

Read the comic if you can get a digital copy or are into comics already.  It's good, better than the series I'd say when you can read all 90 issues in a few sittings.  The plot of the series is headed in roughly the same direction but rarely has anything to do with what happened in the actual book.  I think Season 2 of the walking dead would have been better to watch all in one long stretch.  Watching week to week I felt it dragged a lot.

To not derail: Season 4 of Parks and Rec, though after this I need to catch up on some movies and the last few seasons of Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Ugh, the water-on-fire thing is such a dramatic red herring.  It's just methane.  Not that having methane in your pipes is cool, but it's not like toxic waste or anything.  Of course, there is Real Nasty Shit that (probably) gets into the water supply as well, but it's not the flammable stuff.

You should educate on the topic if you feel that seriously about it. Not just watch one very obviously biased movie that's entire purpose is to shock you into agreeing.

Fracking, from what I've seen, is okay as long as your not doing it in areas where it can cause harm. Namely places where the shale is shallow and close to the watershed. So in places like NY and PA they are trying tok frac the Marcellus Shale, and the fracturing runs the risk of penetrating the water table. In deeper shales (Bakken in ND, MT), the rocks are very deep, around 10k feet. This is very far below the water table, and the overlying rock formations have very low permeability, which doesn't allow for seepage between the Bakken fractures, and the water table.

Fracking is a very good thing when done right. And we've been doing it for a long time now, so by all rights we should be getting it mostly right.
Title: Re: What are you currently watching?
Post by: boog on June 28, 2012, 06:12:44 PM
We aren't getting it done right if peoples' water isn't clean, and the companies that are fracking aren't regulated due to Hallyburton loopholes.

These people had black and brown water coming out of their wells. Reverse osmosis doesn't even clean this contaminated water completely. There was a farm, though I didn't catch where it was because I had to leave the room for a few minutes, where, every single morning it is enveloped in a thick cloud of brown dust due to all of the wells on the property.

A guy in Wyoming could take a blow torch and make SOLID, plastic particles in his water when he held the heat to it. Does that sound tasty to you?

I'm all for trying to find new sources of energy, but I'm not for oil companies doing whatever the hell they want to get it, destroying livelihoods in the process.

Without a doubt. I had a good friend come down with it and battles it still to this day. Thinking by the comment you took mine wrongly. I would rather see Spinks go tend to his health, which he seemed very healthy tonight and it was stated the disease wasn't affecting him at the moment, instead of watching him make a complete ass of himself in the ring. This is only one of a few matches I've seen this guy utterly fail in. He had faught Bundrage previously, lost just as badly and was swearing up-and-down to fans this fight woudn't be the same outcome. He has poor footwork, terrible chin and no endurance.

I just finished watching this... and I'm in a moderately confused mood, trying to find out how that shit just ended in the internet and not being very lucky. It is a slow show, and the writing starts to drag near the end. What bothers the crap out of me is not knowing why the most important plot factor came to the conclusion it did. You get told, but, it doesn't make sense, unless you're willing to throw most logical assumptions about the nature of robots out the window. It was, however, a beautiful show, with beautiful fights, a great the-world-is-dead atmophere and I love shows where you know every good guy will not automatically win and every bad guy will not automatically lose. The fact that they set that up early and obviously is great too. Its got multiple cool moments in which people must choose between life and what they desire, and this isn't the kind of show where everyone is guarenteed to choose correctly, or for it to be clear which choice is better.

I'm biased and give this a 7/10 for entertainment value, although for most people it'd be more like 5/10 or 6/10.

Man, I really like that show, but I dunno about all the fans crying. I can understand the artists/actors who were choked up to be appreciated like that, but the fans? Sheesh.

p.s. I'll murder a baby to bring the world a season 2.

Hell man, I almost started tearing up. Can't blame them at all. The people saying Firefly saved their life though... That's a bit much. :P

I'd murder 10 babies for a finished season 1.

Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

It comes on the hub channel in force on Sunday nights for a few hour-long episodes and then vanishes from Directtv for the rest of the week. I love it. Clark Kent works with Lois, his friend and love interest, at the Daily Planet newspaper; Lois loves Superman but does not love Clark; and Lois is courting Lex Luthor. I'm excited for Sunday.

"We live in times of string theories and God particles, doable, reasonable? Sure."

I love that guy on Breaking Bad. I think he's only had two scenes so far over all the seasons. WANT MORE. He's hilarious. He's like an older, cooler version of Walter with no real moral compass at all.

No logical reason, she just irks me.  I guess because she holds all the cards, and hasn't fully figured it out, yet.  And also, I'm really attracted to that upbeat, don't bring me down kinda personality, and she started out that way, and was broken.  So in a way, I just feel bad for her, and don't want to.

Walt ...  Walt is like knowing something terrible is going to happen, and you're just like, "Walt, don't do that, man.  WALT!"
Title: Re: What are you currently watching?

It's just the way money works.  You set this goal of some unreasonable number of money, and think you'll be happy with that.  Then, once you achieve it, you realize, you could double it.  Double that.  Capitalism preys on the dark side of human nature.

Walt is definitely a tragic figure.  They'll probably whack him with the cancer.

Mr. White is a fucking maniac and I'm right behind him. I can relate to being willing to cut throats and raise hell for those I love. I can also understand terrible ambition. The fact that he does things I find reprehensible only makes him more human to me. People are awful.

I love the show. The first three seasons were some of the best television I've ever seen. The episodes of s4 I've seen so far though, meh. I figure they're just building up to blow my mind again, but yeah. Bitch bitch.

I think the first few seasons were formulaic, then it got really silly when it tried to introduce character development (beyond the usual static characters). I quit the show around season 4.

I was worried it would be like the barely-watchable She-ra, but no, it was pretty good. Pretty simple hero-saves-x-from-villain stuff where you never really worry about the fate of a good guy. The moral lesson segments at the ends of episodes are surprisingly deep for something geared to kids and relevant for adults as well.

Hah! What do you think about The Newsroom? My brother has been preaching it would be right up my alley for weeks now.

Also- I haven't seen Firefly yet either. Last I checked there were only a handful of episodes which really turned me off. I want something new like Battlestar Galactica that took me a solid month to watch even though I was in the position to watch every single episode, one right after the other until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer.

Finding something engaging on Netflix has been a struggle the last month or two.

I love The Newsroom. It's full of excellent characters, complex and quirky and funny and loathsome which is what makes it for me. Outside of that, I love the way they mix the fiction with past real life events to bring the story lines together in a newsroom, with all the behind the scenes shit we can only imagine goes on, from the moral dilemmas to the downright unscrupulous lines crossed.


Watch it. I wasn't sure I'd like it into the second episode but by episode three I was hooked.

I was worried it would be like the barely-watchable She-ra, but no, it was pretty good. Pretty simple hero-saves-x-from-villain stuff where you never really worry about the fate of a good guy. The moral lesson segments at the ends of episodes are surprisingly deep for something geared to kids and relevant for adults as well.

This was so my favorite when I was young.
I agree on the morals at the end.  I seem to remembering them being very humanistic (a neutral comment), but I can't remember for sure.

Yeah, I'm betting Walt is going to have a scene where he's yelling "say hello to my little friend." He has a massive machine gun at the start, and a few episodes later he's watching that very scene from Scarface. They do a lot of foreshadowing.

Gus was a well oiled, calculated machine compared to Walt, whose family is crumbling around him. You never caught whiff of Gus having any sort of family issues, he had a large house and was cool and collected in everything he accomplished and was rarely rash. He exacted revenge in a timely, fashionable manner. Tuco was a fucking moron and Walt's making decisions blind.

Gus took over 20 years to get where he was, and his decisions got his brother killed. I would say he had just as a rocky start as Walt has had.

There's a lot of focus on movies this season. Spoilers: Mike was watching The Caine Mutiny while drinking some delicious Ensure, and Scarface is shown. Rattatouille and Heat are mentioned. I think that the plots and concepts of those movies have started to show through into the show, or they will. The Caine Mutiny is basically about a crazy naval commander that puts the ship in danger, and gets relieved of command by the officer directly under him. Scarface: "Everyone dies in this movie!" Rattatouille: a rat chef. A meth cook that turns out to be a rat, or maybe a reference to how Walt controls Jesse. Heat: evidence about something the meth gang is doing is left behind, causing further trouble for them? Maybe something left behind at a house, or maybe the tarantula jar Todd pilfered comes into play if he is caught by the police for something else.

This week's episode, there was a lot of focus on... spoilers: substitutes for the "real thing": kelp for caviar, Miracle Whip for mayonnaise, and Jesse's awkward lasagna speech. I think this is going to tie into Walt's "everybody wins" plan, and Declan is going to get some fake methylamine that passes chemical analysis.

Also, Jesse stared at Walt while he was whistling in the tent. Besides... spoilers: the revelation that Walt isn't as disturbed as he says by Tarantula Collector's death, Walt was whistling the tune of Queen's "Lily of the Valley", according to the Internet. Maybe some foreshadowing on how Jesse is going to realize just how screwed over he was by Walt over time, especially with Brock being poisoned?

As for Gus, in my opinion... spoilers: he had to die for the show to move on. The show is all about how Walt's moral character slides downward and how he corrupts and pushes away the people around him, all so he can be powerful and important. Being under Gus was only a stepping stone to taking his place. Interestingly, it probably worked out even better than Walt wanted, since if Gus didn't kill off the cartel leadership before Walt took over, Walt would be running into the same problems with Don Eladio.

5 million bucks though.  The guy is 52 and not exactly in peak health.  I'd say he has 20 years tops, which works out as $250,000 per year for life (plus whatever he already has stashed away).  Surely that's enough, especially with the whole family breakdown thing?

It's funny how it takes the person who spent all his time working his way up to full on Heisenberg has only just now seemed to cross the line with some people. After he kills a murderous criminal who was a threat to exposing him... That is what you think was the turning point? If there was a turning point it was when he let Jessie's girlfriend die, in my opinion. Or maybe when his actions inadvertently got his step brother shot up. In any case I think Walter killing Mike was way foreshadowed back with the Icarus comment Walt Made to Jessie about Mike earlier in the season.

Holy hell.  I have more reason to watch all of it again now, but I'm trying to find a place online that goes over the symbolism line by line so that I can watch for it.  Should we make a separate Br Ba thread (spoiler-filled, of course) to discuss this?

Prometheus - 4 of 5

Men in Black 3 - 3 of 5
(http://i1173.photobucket.com/albums/r597/Kumpul2Film/men-in-black-3.jpg)

I Am Number Four - 4 of 5
(http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w242/dngrms/www_sftw_blog_com_2011/I-Am-Number-Four.jpg)

Overall, the movies were all good in their own aspects. Prometheus - Well that was a pretty neat movie. I like the tie-in references to the future (spoilers in white) Alien franchise. MiB3 was a bit lacking since it kind've just pushes you off. Doesn't really introduce any new characters, but it does open up an interesting portion of K's past. I Am Number Four definitely gives off a 'this was meant to be a series' kind of feel but the way they wrapped things up by the end can leave most content to let the movie drop there. A sequel would be neat but I don't think it'd have anyone going crazy over it.

Been a long, long time since I saw it and I'm finding these older movies I just never really understood when I watched them the first time.

Starship Troopers: Invasion (2012) - 4 out of 5
(http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o517/itmagic/SbayMovie/seed-movieblogsportcom-4.jpg)

Awesome movie - Thought it was on par with the first one to come out, for the franchise. What I really enjoyed about this movie; it returned to the core of the first movie - And had more emphasis on a lot of things in the original novel, Starship Troopers. Where Starship Troopers 2 & 3 were pretty tragic disappointments; I found myself really liked the 4th installment - Invasion. The first three movies in the franchise were done with varying degrees of success (and failure) using real actors crossed with CG. The first pulled it off well but the 2nd and 3rd just started to get cheaper and cheaper, and the actors were subpar, usually B-rate actors. The 4th installment, Invasion, managed to renew my interest in seeing the franchise of SsT continue on - As an animation (Yes, I know they have a TV-safe series already animated). Invasion captured the violence and tragedy, laced with the action-packed thrill of the first movie. Some of the flaws I saw with this series is that some of the characters were very 'asian-themed' - Meaning that though the male characters looked realistic enough, the few women in the movie were more 'glamorized' to lean towards an anime style. The lipsync'ing was pretty bad, at points, but I found myself able to stick through it. Usually, bad lip-syncing just puts me 'off' from a movie but, in the case of Starship Troopers, I was able to chalk it up as bad programming. Most of it still stuck true and I enjoyed it.

Battleship (2012) - 2.5 out of 5
(http://i1212.photobucket.com/albums/cc455/trickskomputer/movies/battleship.jpg)
Meh. This was an okay action movie. You get what you expect. Using the Hasbro game title, "Battleship", was a bit of a stretch - But I definitely saw a part of the movie that made you realize how it connected. An enjoyable movie - but doesn't leave any lasting impression with typical characters and somewhat pot-holed storyline.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) - 4 out of 5
(http://i595.photobucket.com/albums/tt37/hudson0419/rise_of_the_planet_of_the_apes__ver7.jpg)
Awesome movie. Laughable acting, though, at some parts.

The Truman Show - 4.5 out of 5
(http://i725.photobucket.com/albums/ww255/argyr/truman.jpg)
I love Jim Carry - He was always a favorite comedian of mine, growing up. I watched the Truman show (again) just to re-enjoy it. Has a lot of God Control symbolism.

How to Train your Dragon - 4.5 out of 5
(http://i1030.photobucket.com/albums/y369/itouchyoufull/how-to-train-your-dragon-poster2.jpg)
A fun movie - Enjoyed the crap out of it. Good music and the animation was good.

For you anime fans out there.

I'm really enjoying From the New World.

It's about a bunch of kids that go to school to develop their psychic powers. But what really intrigues me is the Lain-esque surreality that just seems to linger beneath the surface.

It also does a good job of avoiding the cliche's that irritate me the most in anime.

Antz--- talk about getting shit right through the radar, while moonwalking and singing a Michael Jackson song. The last time I watched this I was a kid and the more adult lines just flew over my head back then. And somehow I enjoyed this movie more now than I did as a kid, I think partly because the deeper parts of this movie didn't latch on (the idea of a revolution based on the rights of workers, the concept of individuality being banned in their society, etc.)

Have been watching Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Awesome stuff.

I watched one episode where the protagonists somehow out-villainize some hardcore inmates (which struck me as rather unbelievable), and one of the protagonists decides she's going to learn how to perform a field-expedient Cesarean-section on a non-gravid zombie cadaver, which is just absolutely, 100% ludicrous.  I decided I wasn't particularly interested in the series, at that point.

This is similar to the Firefly series.  When the priest guy gets shot in the chest and the "doctor" starts probing the wound to find the bullet...I just had to stop watching.  I mean, come on writers...the ATLS guidelines for managing penetrating trauma to the chest are out there on the internets.  Do some damn work on Google before you make yourselves (and your supposedly genius doctor from the future) look like retards.

The cable network is having a week or two of showing off it's Japanese station.   (As in, in Japanese and I'm thinking a lot of variety - anime, news, sumo, daily shows)   That's kind of neat anyway.

But, I found a show called "Cool Japan" which I guess airs in Japan but geared for non-japanese.  The show is explaining Japanese culture with a board of people (mostly speaking English, always subtitles).  This one is on Japanese Beef.  It's interesting.

Soul Eater: 8.5 out of 10 from me. It is a beautiful, decently written show, however it loses a good thing, in my opinion, when after the first fifth of the episodes, you start realizing that the good guys are always going to win anyway. Before that there is some doubt which is well played.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic: 7 out of 10 from me. The overly simplistic plots detract from the show for me, although I know that's because its geared to a young audience. This also makes some actions of the characters and even some lines extremely predictable. Each episode is a roulette for me. I've watched one episode I liked but would not shell out effort to find and watch again, I didn't like one episode, and I loved three episodes to death. The characters, which are just over the fence enough in terms of stereotypical personalities to be intriguing and likable, grow on you the more you see them. The sub-plots are pretty simple, like in one, a pony kidnaps the princess's sick bird and tries to nurse it back to health. I'm not sure yet, but I think the main plot began and ended conclusively on the second episode. If they're doing more with that I have yet to see a shadow of it. And it was a good plot, too! Sort of a doomsday thing. To have that hanging over the character's heads every other episode would have been a treat, except this is a show geared to young girls, so, yeah.

Apparently I've missed a lot of Adventure Time episodes: trying to catch up.

Quite good. A little bit crazy in the second season, but still, it's enticing. It's not really Starbuck's actress though the character is very similar. Both the leads are great and have good chemistry and the supporting actors are spot on. The plot is a bit wacky at times, but generally the simple drama of situations carries it. Definitely worth watching.

I watched the pilot halfway through and just wasn't feeling it. I kind of grasped what it was about even without having to watch much of it and I just ... I dunno. Those sorts of shows about military and conspiracy and shit don't really entice me. I was the same way when manboog went on a 24 spree: I just couldn't get into it.

I guess I should give him props that he said, "Oh, watch the pilot then we can watch subsequent episodes together!" but he oughtta know by now that sort of show is just bland and meh to me.

Brilliant. It's less a series and more a very long, partitioned movie. It feels to me like it all fits together really well, but that's just good writing and not planning (apparently, Brody was only supposed to be in the series for two episodes but the producer was so impressed with him he edited the production to make him a main character!)

There's a difference between a film portraying racism (eg American History X) and actually being racist (eg The Birth of a Nation).

E: You're right though, it is possible to be both.  If it's closer to the former I want to see it, otherwise I'll avoid it.  This is why I asked.

I'm slowly watching Star Trek: The Next Generation with my husband.  We're still on the first season.
Tread lightly.  I literally grew up on this show.

That said... the first season is pretty miserable.  The second seaon is pretty rough too, but the show picks up in quality about halfway through.

I have no idea about Wesley's sweaters, but I suspect that even by 24th century standards the kid is kind of a geek.  Actually he was a pretty awful character, and for a long time Wil Wheaton despised the franchise because everyone hated his character.  But he came to realize it wasn't his fault: Roddenberry was just bad at writing young characters.  He's cool with it now and actually wrote a series of HILARIOUS episode synopses for the show.

The TNG portrayal of the Ferengi is pretty racists... against the Ferengi race?  I don't know if you can draw any single real-world analog from them, though.  You'd be really hard pressed to consider Gene Roddenberry to be racist given how progressive the franchise is.  That said, in Deep Space 9 they get rounded out into a much more nuanced concept.

I suppose Riker is kind of a douche, but it wouldn't be Star Trek without SOMEONE trying to sex up the alien babes, and at least in TNG it's not the captain doing it.  :D

As for Picard, really not sure what you're getting at.  He sticks to his morals even when it puts him and his crew in danger.  Does that count as stupid?  Also, in the picture you show, he's under the influence of a Ferengi mind control device.

Q is a great villain.  John DeLancie does an amazing job with him throughout the series.  He's supposed to be annoying because he's so powerful if he was actually evil he would just snap his fingers and do unspeakable things to the entire galaxy, and that'd be boring.

But anyway, keep at it!  Or if you really can't take it, skip ahead to season 3.  The show doesn't have any significant long-term plot arcs like most modern scifi series have.  (Deep Space 9 does, though.)

Everyone keeps saying the first season is really bad.  THEY ARE RIGHT.

Anyway I don't have a problem with any of it...so far, the badness has been pretty entertaining, and I always look forward to Wesley's new wardrobe variations.  My one actual complaint is how this show portrays women.  Yes, Starfleet has women in positions of power, but essentially every race they have encountered (so far - I'm only about 10 episodes in) has been shocked that human women are allowed to hold command, wear clothes, and be people.

I get that the show is trying to show that the human race has advanced to an astonishing degree, but if the entire rest of the universe thinks females can't be equal to men, it kind of undermines the feminist message.

I assume it will get better, since that's what everyone keeps saying.  

I'm not going to skip ahead, since that will lead to being looked down on by hardcore trekkies - which I'm sure I already will be for not having seen it in sooner.

Some Star Trek trivia:

-Wil Wheaton probably remembers those sweaters.

(http://farm1.staticflickr.com/35/73045884_1a118b3b66.jpg)

-Q is Jane's dad in Breaking Bad, Season 2.

-The guy who wrote the most interesting stuff for Star Trek (in my opinion) was Ronald D. Moore.  He started writing stuff in TNG, and eventually became a co-producer and later a producer for the series.  He fleshed out the Klingons (and the Ferengi were also fleshed out but I don't know if he was in charge of that in particular).  You'll probably know Moore as one of the minds behind the Battlestar Galactica re-imagining as well as the show Caprica.  Late news on the guy, by the way:  2012 -- Moore signed to script a pilot episode for a series based on A Knight's Tale.  2012 -- Moore commissioned to write scripts for the live action Star Wars series (now up in the air with the Disney acquisition).  I wish he'd get some more stuff actually approved.  The guy does good work.

I'm pretty sure it's just the Ferengi that have that opinion.  Oh, and I suppose that planet full of African stereotypes too.  Now that I think about it, THAT episode WAS actually really racist.   :-\

But, I don't think it's neccesarily apt to say that a series undermines viewpoint X when it's the villains that disregard it.

Spartacus War of the Damned started off with some bad acting, a couple cheesy parts, but the two thirds were fucking awesome once it got into the swing of things. Opening scene was pretty epic, and budget all around seems to be better. Gannicus, Spartacus, Crixus, Naevea, and Crassus all hit their mark. I particularly enjoyed Crassus and his training sessions with the gladiator. Crassus' son and mother weren't too bad either, pretty much like the whole Crassus family, which is cool considering they're the bad guys so far.

Can't wait to see Julius Caesar and how he comes into play.

Omg... The Following is AMAZING!  Only have watched the first episode but damn... jaw dropping.

I missed every one after the first and I have been itchy ever since.  I need to find where I can watch them, I am seriously considering TiVo!

I haven't seen any of it (yet) but it's on Hulu.

I find it kind of stale, and rigid. Like Bacon's acting. The premise is absurd in the wrong sort of way. And there's little bits that make it unbelievable to me. I'm still watching it though, it could go either way.

Lol, to be honest, I'm not sure. I think they were showcasing the cinematics, but it's not a game trailer or anything. I just thought the implications of content, itself, was what was pretty intense for me.

"Outcasts"

It's a 1 seasons sci-fi that can be watched on Netflix streaming.  Evidently the show got bad ratings in the UK, so it was not continued.  I'm 4 episodes in and I'm still really liking it due to the gritty, survivalist atmosphere.

EDIT: I'm now almost complete with the season and I still like it a lot.  I have no idea what's wrong with people in the UK.  Why did they rate the show so poorly?

Mushishi - Finished!
(http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t83/bfya/mushishi.jpg)

Release: 2005
Genre: adventure, drama, mystery, psychological, supernatural
Themes: folklore, mythology
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 26 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 5 out of 5.

Quote
They are neither plants nor animals. They differ from other forms of life such as the micro-organisms and the fungi. Instead they resemble the primeval body of life and are generally known as "Mushi". Their existence and appearance are unknown to many and only a limited number of humans are aware of them. Ginko is a "Mushi-shi" who travels around to investigate and find out more about the "Mushi". In the process, he also lends a helping hand to people who face problems with supernatural occurances which may be related to the "Mushi".

This anime, hands down, just really blew me away. It wasn't full of fan service (panty shots, etc.), it wasn't full of violence, gore or stupid comical scenes - It was just art. Each episode is it's own form of art; right down to the music and end credits for each episode. For a first time, I managed to hold myself back and actually enjoy this series - taking it two to three episodes (or less) every other day or so. From the description of the anime, it struck me as something that would have been boring but I'm glad someone recommended it to me because I would've been missing out on a really good piece of anime. The stories, the art, the music - it's all original and well-done.


Sword Art Online - Finished!
(http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/r572/mski_AngleS/Novels%20Unlimited/SAO_zpsceb1b8e4.jpg)

Release: 2012
Genres: action, drama, fantasy, romance, science fiction
Themes: fighting, survival game, swordplay, virtual reality
Type: Series (Anime)
Length: 25 Episodes, 25 minutes each.
Personal Rating: 4 out of 5.

Quote
The players of a virtual reality MMORPG, Aincrad Online, are trapped and fighting for their very lives. After it is announced that the only way to leave the game is by beating it, Kirito—a very powerful swordsman—and his friends take on a quest to free all the minds trapped in Aincrad.

In a way, this anime felt a lot like the MMO-based anime, .Hack//Sign - But, at the same time, this was definitely made to stand on it's own. The animation was decent, the overall art was done well enough and the music, while nice, was somewhat repetitive. The storyline itself is an interesting enough one. I think, more than anything else, I liked this anime because it did really well to out-line a bit of the psychological effects a virtual reality would have to people/players who were exposed to it for a lengthy period of time. The series was pretty solid for the first dozen or so episodes, but it does start to flag a bit for the second half of the series - but not enough to ruin the anime. Overall, the anime was enjoyable enough to make me hopeful for another season. The anime was based off a light novel series, 11 volumes long, and the anime only covers the first 4 - so that's why I hold hope out for another season.

I watched an insanely depressing movie called Away From Her this morning because I was too lazy to struggle out from under my blanket for the remote. Elderly lady with alzheimers gets distracted from her still-doting husband by a fresh-faced geriatric in a wheelchair who lives in the same hospice as her. Husband visits every day only to see her slipping further away from him. Good poetry. Terribly sad. :(

Post by: RogueGunslinger on February 18, 2013, 05:58:36 AM
That's because a lot of the cops grew up on those streets.... Not to mention they work them every night. And their language definitely wasn't as harsh as the thugs.

If there something to complain about in The Wire it isn't authenticity.

I just found it boring sometimes, not as clever as people generally give it credit for. Some episodes were a snore fest.

 It got a bit too political/lawyery at the end, and was less about bunk/mcnulty being awesome drinking buddies solving crimes and saying "oh fuck". And it seemed to much of a "happy wrap up" in the end, for a show that had nailed that feeling that the system was fucking broken and un-fixable.


Title: Re: What are you currently watching?
Post by: janeshephard on February 18, 2013, 10:17:04 AM
Only the first season of The Wire was supposed to be about cops. The other seasons examined other institutions.

Also the characters don't try to justify themselves to the audience. For example, the "smart" cops aren't doing it to be cool or for justice. They're doing it because they don't like a perp who thinks he is smarter than the cops.

I was actually about to post in this thread about this very show. Keri Russell nails tough but vulnerable, and Matthew Rhys is flippin' brilliant.

I didn't care much for the first season of the Wire.  I don't think it got really good until somewhere in S2 or S3, when I started realizing what they were doing, and that, hey, this isn't just another cop show with extra nudity and swearing.  If you've only seen the first season, I'd definitely recommend sticking with it a while longer.

I watched Never Let Me Go (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXiRZhDEo8A) last night. (Trailer is kind of spoilery, if you care.)  I haven't read the book, and the movie was good, but not great.  It kind of struck me as one of those movies that should be recommended viewing for people that play muls and want a different perspective from the old slave/gladiator concept.

The Americans. It's a show based in the 80's about two russian KGB spies, "posing" as a married couple in America with kids. They live across the street from an FBI agent, and do awesome spy stuff. It's really, REALLY good. All the actors nail it and the writing is easily some of the best I've seen this year.

Just started watching this. Two episodes in, I'm very impressed. Very cool espionage story lines and 80s nostalgia too.

I was completely impressed by how good the first episode of Vikings was.  I expected it to be heavy on the cheese, but the production values were easily as good as what I would expect from, say, Spartacus or The Walking Dead.

It's fun to see the History Channel flair in the show, too, and be able to pick out things they've featured in previous documentaries on the vikings.

There is a new Viking tv series, the History channel I believe. Anyways I saw it off of couchtuner.

I am undecided if I am satisfied in that they made a long boat, sailed to England faced a storm, ransacked a monistary and pack up to sail back in just two episodes. Seems that taking a long boat into a storm to cross the ocean to England would surely take more than that short of a time span.

I am now wondering how much time will have passed since these vikings left their lands and returned. If they make it back??

Still it has a few redeeming qualities and seems to be offering some backstabbery. (my word)

The interwebs suggest that a Viking ship would be capable of sailing that distance (Norway to England) in 2-3 days of good weather.  In poor weather (storms, no wind) maybe it would have taken twice as long.

If anything was glossed over it would be the construction of the ship.  The show made it seem like Floki built it himself!  Realistically, I believe many man-years of skilled woodworking would go into a craft like that.

*Spoiler Alert* There's too many favorite parts of this movie to just choose one:

- Malkovich's gunshot was pretty gangsta. The amount of times he says "What the fuck?" is hilarious.
- The total airheads Pitt and Clooney play, I wonder how much research they did for their roles. (jk)
- Frances McDormand. When she talks about going to the Chinese instead. Bahaha.


I love that movie too. I especially laugh at the whole "what did we learn" scene, which I could see happening in Armageddon also.

The "what did we learn" scene is the second best, in my opinion, and the Brad Pitt closet shot is number three.  Topping the list, IMO, is the reveal on Clooney's creation.  Just ...  OMG.  I still laugh internally when that memory pops up.

HIMYM is okay, I guess; I watch it with my girlfriend.  It can be funny, but I get tired of some of the characters doing the same stuff over and over.  What really bothers me is how stupid Ted is about falling for girls after 5 seconds.  Most people learn from this mistake after the first couple/few times, but not Ted!  The thing that keeps me watching is how unpredictable Barney can be.  I also really liked Marshall's dad a lot.

I started watching Cheers.  It's interesting seeing how things have changed over the past 30 years, but so many things are still the same.

Title: Re: What are you currently watching?
Post by: Marauder Moe on March 27, 2013, 05:13:54 PM
WD episodes themselves certainly vary within that range.  With season 2 in particular, there were several episodes in a row where like nothing happened.  You probably could have fit the entirety of events of that season in like 2-3 episodes, really.  Season 3 has been better, but faltered a bit after they ditched one of their best writers.  Seems to be wrapping up strong, though.


So far I'm liking Vikings.  Most of the flaws are minor, the biggest of which is that the show does almost nothing to give us a sense of how much time has passed between episodes/scenes.  I had to look up on the internet how long it would take a longboat to sail from Norway to England (~3-7 days depending on weather).  It was also weird how Ragnar asked the priest to teach him English, and then merely one episode later he seems to be able to speak it pretty well.  They gave no context about how much time passed between the two raids.


Anyone else planning to watch Defiance?  I'm cautiously optimistic.  Though I don't understand why so many producers (Rockne O'Bannon in this case) keep going back to work with the networks that burned them (canceled Farscape).


Also, Game of Thrones season 2 blu-rays from Netflix should be arrive in the mail soon.   ;D

Finally watched it. Man, for a movie that came out in 1984 - This movie was incredible. For it's time, it must've been cutting edge tech. used to make it because even movies that came out in the 90's weren't as so well done as Dune.

Also, I got curious as of to how some of the actors turned out (since I recognized a lot of good actors, like Patrick Stewart) and remember the main protagonists little bald sister?

I gave up on that show after three episodes.  It all seemed a bit too farcical to take seriously and not farcical enough to be funny.  Most of the characters were walking stereotypes too, although I guess that might seem less severe to folk from other countries.

Currently watching a BBC comedy called Rev (surprisingly funny in a groany way) and Sons of Anarchy (seems pretty cool, but I have no idea if the plot is actually going anywhere or it's gonna pull a Lost).

Lots of new TV shows I'm enjoying.

Defiance's two hour premier was fresh and pretty damn good. I was impressed and am cautiously optimistic.

Bates Motel- Watched the premier and it was at least interesting enough that I'll come back when i'm not watching so much else.

Hannibal- Creepy, interesting, but the second episode was pretty meh and unmemorable. Fear that maybe it will turn into another The Following, which I'm also still watching, because it makes me laugh.

Davinci's Demons, after having some time to think back, has stuck with me the most of all of these. It has the machinations of really great T.V. It's visually impressive, interesting lead(though cliche), funny, adventurous, and gritty. Lots of corruption.

Is Davinci bisexual at least? Based on the trailer it looked like they were making him straight, which would be lame.

I though it was... OK.  Too many bad things to be good, but enough good things that it wasn't bad.  That puts it ahead of the game when it comes to pilots, though.

Not sure. He compliments some dude's form as something like "a beauty to behold" in one scene, after the model talks about "nobody sees/paints me like you do". And that dude is very obviously gay. But I don't think they've really made it obvious. It's clear he isn't gay at least.

Episode 2 of Defiance was a very well done self contained episode. It had a great beginning, middle and ending. The premier really set up the characters nicely and now they're starting to get into the thick of a lot of very rome-esque politics among the different races, the mayor, the ex-mayor, and the new sherif and his daughter. It just works out well without feeling overwhelming. It has aliens, it's great to look at, it's seriously some of the better tv sci-fi production I've seen.

Here's to hoping it doesn't crash and burn, or get canceled pre-maturely.

The series takes place in the near future, when it is possible to instantaneously measure and quantify a person's state of mind and personality. This information is recorded and processed, and the term "Psycho-Pass" refers to a standard used to measure an individual's being. The story centers around the "enforcement officer" Shinya Kougami, who is tasked with managing crime in such a world.

Oh man. Only halfway through the series but I'm just loving the Hell out of it. Society of the future where everyone's life is plotted out for them based off of what this system known as "Sybil". It's like an anime-version of Minority Report - Except it's pretty grim stuff. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Art and story is pretty solid and I'm definitely glad I picked this series up.

Definitely recommended for any other more realistic, grim anime viewers out there.

And that's a hard thing to find, even in what's usually classified as crime dramas.

Since I cancelled satellite service, I ripped off my parent's HBO GO account (it can support 12 unique devices), and I've started up Rome, again.  Love it, it's a classic.

On that note, I really wish HBO would allow you to subscribe to their HBO GO service without having to have a cable/satellite service.  I've literally no use for them, anymore.

Well, that was a very good series. Usually, an Anime developed without Manga material to use to keep the plot on track tends to sometimes falter as it gets deeper into the series but the entire time through, I felt the plot pushing along at a good pace that didn't feel anything wanting. The music was good for the scenes used. Nothing irks me more than over-playing a theme song or fight song during almost every, single dramatic scene. Deals a lot with social concepts that I really enjoyed. An Anime that actually had deep, underlying tones and wasn't all "surface material".

The way the series concludes does perfectly to wrap up the series arc but to also leave the potential for a follow-up season.

Quote from: http://myanimelist.net/anime/9253/Steins;Gate
Steins;Gate is set in the summer of 2010, approximately one year after the events that took place in Chaos;Head, in Akihabara.

Steins;Gate is about a group of friends who have customized their microwave into a device that can send text messages to the past. As they perform different experiments, an organization named SERN, who has been doing their own research on time travel, tracks them down and now the characters have to find a way to avoid being captured by them.

Episodes: 24
Status: Finished Airing
Aired: Apr 6, 2011 to Sep 14, 2011
Genres: Sci-Fi, Thriller
Duration: 24 min. per episode
Rating: R - 17+ (violence & profanity)

Starts off pretty silly/random, first several episodes, until things start to really get awesome. And by awesome, I mean dramatic/gut-clenching awesome. A time-travel plot line, basically. The synopsis really doesn't do this anime justice. The synopsis basically covers the start of the series. The music, the Japanese voice acting, the setting, and the plot were pretty awesome. And as something as theoretically insane as time-travel, the anime does a really awesome job of making it seem almost plausible and understandable, to a point. This series had me angry, sad, happy, pleased, laughing - It was the perfect blend of what any kind of entertainment should be.

Gunner, if you're watching films from the turn of the century, this is one you shouldn't miss:
Oh man, what a fucked up movie. Lol.

It's about colonialism, not necessarily cannibalism.

All the colonists are in denial when confronted with cannibalism until they first experience it. Then they either become victims of it, or they take part in it. The Windeigo "takes and takes, but never gives."

In the end, Calquhoun is still trying to convince Boyd to join him, and others in their version of Manifest Destiny.

Even after the dust settles we see General Slauson sip from the stew in delight.

I just finished Valhalla Rising.

Minimalist, gory, ethereal Viking scifi.

Simply stunning.

Decided to check it out and watch it.

The silence was... A living creature, in that movie. Loved it.

Watched Jack Reacher. Pretty "cool" movie that plays towards Tom Cruises already inflated ego.

This documentary follows Lord Eddard Stark's first expedition beyond the wall.


"Ya like dags?"

Sorry, wrong movie.

I thought this was pretty good. My S.O. hated it.

I guess the movie's alright as an action crime flick, but as a fan who's read all of the Jack Reacher novels... Tom Cruise is -not- Jack Reacher!

Not sure who they could have gotten to play the part but most of the fans of the series were pretty dismayed to hear it was going to be Tom Cruise!

As for what I'm watching, I'm really digging Justified these days.

"Good!  I'm glad they saw it.  It was like a motherboy ball, riiight?"

"Hi!"

Black Books is pretty much my favourite comedy series.  Check out some of Bill Bailey's (earlier, he's gone downhill in recent years) standup if you're a fan.

It makes me sad because NetFlix is really awesome, and I love how they release whole seasons. But apparently only people with taste are hating that show, the mass of frothing-mouthed plebs are watching it.

It seems like most tv shows are like that.  They run out of compelling story for the characters that just accomplished their amazing life time goal and the only place to go from there is down.

Suicide Forest in Japan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4FDSdg09df8)

Quote
The Aokigahara Forest is the most popular site for suicides in Japan. After the novel Kuroi Jukai was published, in which a young lover commits suicide in the forest, people started taking their own lives there at a rate of 50 to 100 deaths a year. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently.

Just a documentary I stumbled across while browsing Youtube. Watching this video just feels really... Sad, in a peaceful way. It's a very calming environment, yet it holds such a sad story.
