Hey, that did look surprisingly good. I even thought it was pretty funny, a reaction Hollywood rarely evokes in me these days. I kind of want that to be a video game rather than a movie though. So it's Transformers and the Turtles next year, huh? There's not many of my childhood heroes for them lef...

Ninjas are overrated, samurais deserve more praise. Still I would have probabbly checked out this movie if it did not cost a hundred bucks. Well, there are other editions priced lower. The still to be released Austarlian edition is about $30 (that's 30 Australian dollars), while there are three oth...

A movie about warring ninja clans in the Tokugawa era shares the same source material with a video game series about a guy named "Joe Musashi" hacking up punks in the 1980s? Hmm, perhaps I read something wrong somewhere. I've never played the games, nor do I know much about them. I never knew it wa...

Shinobi - It's beautiful

No, this is not about that old video game, it is about the movie, Shinobi: Heart Under Blade . And no, it is not based on the game, but it is based on the same source material that the game was based on. I bought the premium edition DVD, and also caught it at Subway Cinema's New York Asian Film Fest...

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by the new King Kong and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The latter I thought was equal to the original, and a funny and well made film, though the backstory about Willy Wonka kind of seemed tacked on. I was pleasantly surprsed that the remake of Kong didn't suck,...

It's actually true. They use a dubbing studio in Hong Kong to do the international English dubs for their films, and you can tell that it's the same five people that have been doing the voices for the past several movies.

Funny. I always thought that Station Square was modelled after Tokyo, just because, you know, that city seems to be a place that giant monsters are naturally attracted to.
