How Disney likes to screw over anime lovers with the old bait and switch

Disney’s G-Force movie is slated for US release soon and for some time there have been some people posting their excitement-quickly-turned-to-disappointment responses to the trailers. Example: The “G-Force” movie trailer. With the majority saying exactly what I said when I saw the trailers for the first time on TV not too long ago … “WTF!?” […]

Americans like their horror Asian style

Looks like here in the States there is an increasing trend to remake a lot of previously released Asian horror films lately. In February 2008, the Americanized version of the Chinese horror film The Eye (見鬼) will be in theaters despite the fact that the original Chinese version was released publicly in North America sometime […]

How childhood anime makes a comeback

The Wachowski brothers’, (the Matrix Trilogy and V for Vendetta), take on Speed Racer is due out in theaters as a live action movie sometime in 2008. I’m hoping it will be good and it will be interesting to see how the anime style is adapted and carried over to live actors. In other news, […]

US film industry remakes another J-Horror flick for 2008

Just like the Japan flicks and sequels to Ringu (リング) and Ju-on (呪怨) have spawned the US versions and offspring of The Ring and The Grudge, early January 2008 there will be a remake of Chakushin Ari (着信アリ) or One Missed Call available in US movie theaters.

Hopefully there will be a way to buy it here either online or in a store somewhere sometime in the future. A major […]

Another member of the Ramones gone

I’m still reeling a bit over the death of Johnny Ramone (September 15, 2004). Sad. Joey’s death (April 15, 2001) seemed unexpected at least to me since he denied publicly being sick and only the people who knew him knew how sick he was. Dee Dee’s OD death (June 7, 2002) on the other hand, […]

Why bother with some remakes

Tonight’s episode of “Crossing Jordan“ had the most horrible version of Donovan’s “Season of the Witch” I’ve ever heard. It is on the soundtrack for the series and they kept advertising it during the show. This version is by someone named Richard Thompson. I couldn’t even bear to watch the show the version was so […]
