Saturday Morning Update #60


This week I was able to return to Bloomfield and visit the last few places I needed too for my blog post on the neighborhood. The Big Idea Bookstore is an "anti-profit" store that's trying to stick it to the man and destroy the establishment. They also serve coffee. Atlus Game Exchange sounds like a retrogaming store, but the first half is kinda this weird garage sale of junk and the second half is more anime DVDs and manga. They do have retrogames, but it's not their biggest thing. After that I walked 30 minutes to Target and stopped at a Goodwill. I got plenty of cool stuff that night so I might do a thrift haul video soon!

How was your week? What are you doing in the coming week?

REVIEW: Hit-Girl #1

The deadliest tween superhero is back and bloodier than ever. Original creators Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. have returned to kick ass like never before with a new ongoing series starring Mindy McCready on a quest to serve her own style of justice around the world. Her first stop: Colombia. Check out my review of Hit-Girl #1 after the jump.

REVIEW: Black Panther


When Marvel Studios was born with a mission of producing a connected universe of films based on their less well-known characters, I made two requests: a wizard and a king. Even before Iron Man, I was already bored with science-based heroes. I’m a fan of Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four - but there is more to superheroes and genetics and radiation. I wanted to see a wizard master of the mystic arts. We got that. I didn’t like it. The only other thing I want out of the MCU now is a king of a great African nation. After all these years, the Black Panther is here. Full review after the jump.

Saturday Morning Update #59


This week, the Power Rangers fandom was rocked by the biggest news of the decade: Saban Brands is severing its ties with Bandai America and granting the master toy license to Hasbro! This is the same week that a new logo was revealed and the contract with Nickelodeon was extended for another three years. That odd number is confusing considering every Power Rangers series under Saban Brands and on Nick has aired over 2 seasons. What does the future of this franchise hold? There are so many variables that we really have no idea, but it's been an exciting week to say the least!

Predicting My Favorite Movies of 2018


When summer movie season kicked off in 2017, I started posting updated rankings of my favorite movies of the year so far on my personal Facebook profile. My friends and family commented more on those than they did my actual blog posts. And I got a lot of flack for being the only person anyone knew who actually liked Valerian (which stood at my #1 spot for most of the year). With the upcoming release of Black Panther, I thought this week would be a great time to lay out my predictions for what my favorite movies will be this year.

REVIEW: Mazinger Z: INFINITY


Mazinger Z, briefly known in the US as Tranzor Z, helped launch the popularity of mecha anime and manga. The first piloted super robot is something of a symbol for mecha fans. Since its creation, multiple manga and anime featuring other versions of Mazinger have been produced. For its 45th anniversary, a special theatrical film was produced by Toei to bring Mazinger Z back to life.
