Gurren Lagann Simon

This Year Marks the 10th Anniversary of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann To be more precise, April 1 of this year was the anniversary for Gurren Lagann. Better late than never! I personally did not become aware of Gurren Lagann until roughly 7 years ago. It was during a time in my life that I was just kind of mulling around… I had just recently got back into watching anime after an almost 15-year hiatus (don’t judge) and stumbled across this colorful looking anime on Netflix. For me initially, the art style was not exactly attractive, I was a more accustomed to slightly […]

Movie Review: ‘Ghost in the Shell’ (2017)

Featured Video Play Icon

We Review Scarlett Johansson as Major in this Adaptation of the Iconic Anime Film   Review: Hollywood has a long storied history of making unsuccessful adaptations of Japanese anime.  From Dragon Ball to Speed Racer, filmmakers have been trying their best, or in the case of Dragon Ball their worst, to recapture lightning a bottle.  The same lightning that Japanese artists, who came up with original stories, successfully accomplished before them.  With Ghost in the Shell, it seems director Rupert Sanders has finally caught that lightning that director Mamoru Oshii bottled in 1995, with the first Ghost in the Shell anime. […]
