Mirai Nikki / Future Diary Manga Review

Note: this review covers the manga up to chapter 45

Admitted, the title of the manga sounds interesting if not a little bit strange. Future Diary. Future Diary? Is this the story about a girl in love with a vampire, reading her own entries in order to seduce him in glittering colors? Or would this be a bad sci-fi story of a guy writing about his path to becoming Darth Vader?

Although I wasn’t sure if the author would or could deliver on the potential I started to read it anyways. After reading the first volumes of Mirai Nikki one thing is absolutely clear to me: not only did the author of this manga deliver on the promise, he wrote and drew one of the best sci-fi action I’ve ever seen in any medium.

Thanks to Kick-Ass I think I get it now

When you’re doing a live-action take of a well known franchise you fight against the hardcore fans as if they’re a bunch of Apple fanbois.

When you’re doing a movie not stemming from a well-known franchise while trying to do something new, you fight against reviewers from newspapers and magazines as if they’re the only ones out there who know what you can and cannot do in a movie.

Kick-Ass Movie Review – Kick-Ass kicks some ass

„And I don’t give a damn about my bad reputation”

Go watch Kick Ass! This movie kicks some serious ass. And sorry for the bad pun we all read thousand times already. (And be warned from heavy spoilers (see red flag besides the title if you’re reading this on my site)).

A Post for those who Love Conspiracies

I knew it: They knew it and worked on it for decades. My spider paranoia sense was always tingling and it turns out my crazy paranoia was spot on all the time…

Clash of the Titans Review: The Monster of the Minute Movie

Wait a minute. Could you please stop for a moment? Hey! Come on…wait. I mean…hello? Please, calm you storm, okay? … Is there a ‘Pause’ key on this one? What the Styx is going on? Could you please wait a….oh man…

The basic premise of Clash of the Titans is not bad in itself. We have Perseus who hates the gods and decides to fight them. On the way to win we got the monster of the minute and a hot damsel in distress. That’s good enough to me. But the execution of director Louis Leterrier is so damn fricking fast and messed up that I didn’t even start to care a shit about what’s going on or the characters – and that’ only one problem of many.
