I recently had the opportunity to watch Fanboys a movie that I thought was going to seem oddly out of place and time, but probably came at the right time.StoryThe year is 1998, six months before the release of "The Phantom Menace" and four nerds who were primarily into Star Wars have entered their early [...]

In the comments thread of my Akira review, Dr. Trammel recommended Ghost in the Shell for my exploration of anime. I had actually heard of Ghost in the Shell due to in-game ads in the fantastic Syndicate Wars PC game, but that was the extent of my knowledge. Of course I can count on the [...]

Our boy CT will be fascinated to learn that I went out and saw "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra."CT, I tell you what . . . I would've preferred a movie that hewed more closely to the comics or the filecards or "Resolute," but this was fun. This had the manic energy of being [...]

The Walrus Plan

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. We’ve pontificated about how he should play Doc Savage on the big screen and has all the makings of Hollywood’s next action star. But does all that mean I’ll watch a Disney kids flick just because The Rock is in it?  Yes, yes [...]

(Not) Netflix Notes 3

While I don’t have Netflix, there are a number of DVDs I’ve watched over the past few months that I’m never going to get around to reviewing. This admission of failure will clean out my draft posts folder and maybe give us something to talk about. Get Smart When I first saw the trailers for [...]

Walrus Trek

I made it to a Memorial Day matinee of Star Trek, but then real life got in the way of writing up this review. I suppose I could have said “Okay as a summer blockbuster, bad as Star Trek”, but one of our meat and potatoes topics deserves a deeper explanation. Story The script has [...]

Let me be up front about this: I have never understood anime or manga. I liked Vampire Hunter D when I saw it about 12 years ago, but generally speaking the appeal has been completely lost on me. Despite the unsatisfying experiences I’ve had with anime, I’ve felt like I’ve been missing out. Do all [...]

Walrusboy II: The Golden Disappointment

Story:The plot for Hellboy II was derivative and had a change in tone from the first movie that I wasn't too keen on. The movie opens with the set up for "The Golden Army" that has a backstory very reminiscent of The Lord of the Rings. I could get past that, but then the movie [...]
