    'No Guns Life' Episode 2

    'No Guns Life' Episode 2

    We pick things up directly following the events of the first episode where Juuzou is in the middle of saving the boy that had run away from the testing facility. We get a fantastic display of just how powerful of a character he actually is when he gets serious, as in this episode, he is able to derail a train traveling at full speed by punching it. After a brief battle, he was able to save the boy and take him away just as he had promised to do. Juuzou takes the boy to a mechanic/surgeon to have him fixed up while he goes out to find his favourite brand of cigarettes. Juuzou is then approached by the corporation that worked on developing the tech that is on the boy that he saved, and their method of blackmail was to steal all of his favourite brand of cigarettes from the city.

    My Review of 'Geostorm'

    My Review of 'Geostorm'

    I'd heard of Geostorm way back when. I saw the trailers for it when it first came out, and I thought it would be interesting to watch, because I can be a sucker for disaster movies. This one stars Gerard Butler as the star character Jake Lawson. The guy who basically invents and creates the "Dutch Boy" program. Basically it's this computerized system up in the Earth's orbit to combat global warming. Well not really global warming, just the resulting storms from global warming.

    My Review of 'Batteries Not Included'

    My Review of 'Batteries Not Included'

    I didn't know what to think when I decided to watch Batteries Not Included. It's not a very well known movie, and I've never heard of it before. I looked at who was in the movie, and for the most part, I didn't know anyone in the movie. Although, Brad Bird was said to have helped with the screenplay for this movie. I only recognized Brad Bird's name from Pixar movies. If he's good at making Pixar movies, then he's got to be good at writing this one too, right?

    Anthony's Film Review - 'Breaking Bad' (TV Series, 2008-2013)

    Anthony's Film Review - 'Breaking Bad' (TV Series, 2008-2013)

    Breaking Bad is considered to be one of the greatest television shows ever made, yet I'm one of those people who finally decided to check it out after its final episode aired in 2013. The moment I got interested in the show was during a random visit to a video store. I was wandering through the aisles for DVD and Blu-ray disc sets of television shows and stopped in front of the Breaking Bad box sets, from "The Complete First Season" to "The Fifth Season" and "The Final Season" (the fifth and final seasons are actually two halves of season five). I noticed how the main character depicted on each cover gradually appeared meaner and darker as I looked at the box covers in order from left to right. Then I read about how the main character is a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer and decides to cook crystal meth on the side in order to pay for his cancer treatment and leave money for his family after he dies. Right away, I was hooked on the concept, because this would provide a fascinating character study, made especially intriguing by the character's transformation from good to bad.

    Anthony's Film Review - 'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie' (2019)

    Anthony's Film Review - 'El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie' (2019)

    Breaking Bad was a phenomenal crime drama television series, with a powerful and memorable final episode to wrap it all up. Now, I'm not going to recap all of the details of the ending, in order to not spoil the surprise for anyone who still hasn't seen the final episode yet. I will, however, mention one detail because it's absolutely necessary here. Jesse Pinkman (played by Aaron Paul), the young man who worked alongside Walter White in the latter's meth cartel, gets to escape with his life. He is incredibly overjoyed in that moment, because he can taste the freedom that lies ahead. At least, that's what we think based on just that one scene.

    The Sad History of 'Berserk' in Anime Form

    The Sad History of 'Berserk' in Anime Form

    So let me start out by saying the fact that Berserk has so many different adaptations is just a showing at how much of a fictional masterpiece Kentaro Miura has created in that fans want it done right. With that said, it is rather disappointing that there are just so many failures out there. So let’s take a look at every Berserk adaptation that has ever been created.

    Review of 'El Camino'

    Review of 'El Camino'

    El Camino, aptly described by IMDb as "a sequel of sorts, to Breaking Bad," is nothing but a success, unqualified.

    'Special Crime Investigation Unit—Special 7' Episode 2

    'Special Crime Investigation Unit—Special 7' Episode 2

    This episode serves as a means of deepening the logistics of the world, what the various races' benefits and drawbacks are, the characters' strengths and weaknesses, their relationship with each other, and what their personalities are like. This episode focuses the narrative on the way the group the Special Seven operates, while tackling a crime. As a result of the group having been created to take down the cultist that worship the dragons, now that they had been taken down they have no purpose and so are left to scavenge cases from other departments so that they have some relevance in remaining in operation.

    Anthony's Film Review - 'Joker' (2019)

    Anthony's Film Review - 'Joker' (2019)

    Among the many villains Batman has faced, one easily stands out: the wicked clown-faced criminal known as the Joker. This is a character we have seen plenty of times over the years, portrayed in different styles by multiple actors. There's the comical presentation of Joker by Cesar Romero in the 1960s Batman television series, and even, for that matter, the silly Joker in The Lego Batman Movie recently. For something mildly dark, there's Jack Nicholson's Joker in the 1989 Batman movie and Mark Hamill voicing the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series in TV in the 1990s. Then, if you really want an ultra dark Joker, look no further than Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning performance in The Dark Knight in 2008. With such a high bar set, it would be a challenge to reach the same level of excellence that Ledger achieved.
