The Critics Can Suck It, I liked Suckerpunch

There was a ridiculous amount of hype for Suckerpunch. It was inevitable with such a gorgeous, scantily clad cast and Zach Snyder at the helm. Then the bad reviews started rolling in and with 80% of percent of my Blondie costume done, you can't blame a gal for being a little anxious. But you know … Continue reading The Critics Can Suck It, I liked Suckerpunch


Gotham City Sirens #20 – Hell Hath No Fury Part One

I don't know what Ivy and Catwoman are doing on the cover, but they weren't in this issue at all. Stunning cover art by Guillem March as usual though. So issue #19 ends with Harley finally snapping and deciding to go after the Joker for everything she's had to put up with during the course … Continue reading Gotham City Sirens #20 – Hell Hath No Fury Part One

Young Justice

I don't think I was alone in slightly recoiling in horror when it was revealed that the Robin and Kid Flash in Young Justice were going to be Dick Grayson (former Robin, former Nightwing & currently one of of two Batmans) and Wally West (former Kid Flash, currently one of two Flash-es), but like most things I'm … Continue reading Young Justice

Shogun (1980)

For Christmas I got my dad-the-James-Clavell-fan the DVD box set of the 1980's mini-series adaptation of, "Shogun". (Who ironically, hasn't gotten past the first disc, while my brother and mom have watched all 9-hours of it in one sitting on separate occasions.) Shogun's one of my favourite books, and I always felt like I was … Continue reading Shogun (1980)

The Last Unicorn Comic

I had been putting off reading the comic adaptation of The Last Unicorn for a while now. While I love this story to bits, I had already read the book and watched the animated movie countless times and really didn't feel the need to read its latest incarnation. I picked it up on a whim … Continue reading The Last Unicorn Comic

Superman Batman: Apocalypse

I'm sorry but am I the only one bothered by  the outlined upper lips on Supes and Bats?  Anyone? Finally, an animated movie that I've read the comics it was based on haha! Apocalypse is based on "The Super Girl from Krypton" arc in the Superman Batman series by Jeph Loeb and Michael Turner. Although … Continue reading Superman Batman: Apocalypse

Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

My DS basically exists for two things: the Ace Attourney series and the Professor Layton series. So in between those game releases, my DS doesn't get a lot of use. When I got my copy, I tried to really take my time and to make it last as long as I could but I just … Continue reading Professor Layton and the Unwound Future

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

I actually only started reading the comics after the movie adaptation was announced. After the first few volumes, I was hooked, but a little skeptic how it was going to make the transition to film. When I found out  Edgar Wright would be directing it, I thought well, if it won't turn out as a … Continue reading Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

CATS in Manila!

Despite the rain, the unusually heavy traffic and the flooded streets, the family and I headed to CCP yesterday evening to watch CATS. How can I even begin to describe finally watching CATS live on stage and in person after watching it over and over on video these past couple of decades? We bought our … Continue reading CATS in Manila!

Batman: Gotham Knight – Not quite a review

Sometime last year, my friend, Sarah asked me on Facebook about what I thought of Batman: Gotham Knight, which is is a series of animated shorts by different writers and different Japanese animation studios.  She had read my post on B:tas and was surprised I didn't have one on Gotham Knight. So I watched it, got … Continue reading Batman: Gotham Knight – Not quite a review
