Space Pirate Captain Harlock, based on Leiji Matsumoto’s manga adaptation of Captain Harlock, landed on Netflix’s shores last Friday on August 1st. The CG anime film produced by Toei Animation tells the tale of a mysterious space pirate named Captain Harlock who travels space on a quest for freedom and a chance to return home to Earth. While Captain Harlock gets closer to his goals, he comes closer to face his darker demons and begins to question whether his motives are worth the battle. Praised by Avatar director James Cameron, Space Pirate Captain Harlock creates a beautiful and visually stunning landscape that any art fanatic can appreciate. Based in a fully CG environment, Space Pirate Captain Harlock drives Japanese animation forward into a new style of presentation while retaining the art’s fundamental characteristics. With the capabilities of CG, the characters...

24: Live Another Day: 4 Characters We Need For Next Season

By on Aug 3, 2014 in SOCIAL | 0 comments

Though there’s no confirmation on a follow up season to 24: Live Another Day, I believe, without a doubt, the series will continue. In fact, the series needs to continue. The brilliant cast of 24: Live Another Day combined with its beautiful yet emotionally challenging plot brewed up the perfect cocktail for a massive summer TV hit. Here are 4 characters we need for Season 10 of 24. 1. MORE STRONG FEMALE LEAD, MORE KATE MORGAN Casting Yvonne Strahovski as Kate Morgan was the smartest decision 24 made. Yvonne, who is no stranger to the “agency” from her time on NBC’s Chuck, played Kate Morgan perfectly and created a strong female lead who was key to the success of 24: Live Another Day. Yvonne’s brilliant track record for playing strong and likable female roles encouraged me to take a chance on 24 and I’m thankful that I did. I know after finishing...

Welcome to the Rebel Alliance

Star Wars Episode VII is expected to debut this 2015 and plenty of old and new fans have chimed in their mixed feelings of heading back to a galaxy far, far, away. Most Star Wars fans are on the 50/50 edge of this new film since former front man George Lucas has entered retirement. In addition, with the acquisition of Star Wars by Disney, some may feel that this next journey into the Star Wars saga may not pay homage to original trilogy. As a hardcore fan of Lucasfilms and Disney, I have high hopes for Episode VII especially with the news that J.J. Abrams, director of Star Wars and 2013 film Star Trek Into Darkness, is literally going “throwback” for the production of this latest chapter in the Star Wars saga. Leaked/released photos of the new Star Wars set is filled will traditionally built sets, handmade built starships, animatronics, and life-sized creatures. With just a...

Disney x Marvel Releases Teaser Trailer For Big Hero 6

Disney x Marvel’s Big Hero 6 animated film has released a new teaser trailer for us to savor. I wasn’t too familiar with the Big Hero 6 comics, but after seeing the teaser trailer, I’m quite excited for what Disney will come up with. In addition, Disney has moved forward to keep Big Hero 6 separated from the Marvel cinematic universe, which seems like a no brainer, since the live-action Marvel films can stand on their own. With the success of Disney’s Frozen, I think we can expect a solid serving of Disney animated magic. Plus, who doesn’t love a “huggable” robot named Baymax.
