Before watching Kill la Kill I would have defined the words legendary and epic very differently, but Kill la Kill made such an impression on me that from here on out I will forever be reminded of Kill la Kill when an individual utters those words. From the fantastic animation, complimentary soundtrack, all the way to fantastical scenarios and enduring charm, Kill la Kill is an absolutely phenomenal piece of art from beginning to end.
I picked up the first volume of the D.N. Angel manga series a little over 8 years ago based on a recommendation. I wasn’t initially impressed, but decided to give the second volume a shot. I was hooked ever since, collecting the 13 volumes released in the US, and the 26 episode Anime series adapted from the manga.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier follows none other than Captain America(Chris Evans) as he finds out who he really needs to trust. Is S.H.I.E.L.D. who they say they are? Are they really protecting people, or putting them in fear? Can Nick Fury(Samuel L. Jackson) be trusted? Can anyone be trusted? Who and what is the Winter Soldier? These are just a few of the questions raised during this political thrillers runtime, and boy is it one heck of a ride.
The worst part about finishing Bioshock Infinite’s latest DLC, Burial At Sea Episode 2, is knowing that it’s the last time we’ll get to play in the Bioshock world. Well, at least one made by Irrational. As we learned recently, they are closing the studio and Ken Levine is moving to a different IP. This being their swan song, it leads to hope that it holds up to the series precedent set by the first Bioshock and Infinite with writing and gameplay.
Earth has seen better days. I mean it was decades ago that an insect-like alien race known as the “Formic” tried to colonize earth resulting in tens of millions getting killed. The only way earth overcame was the sacrifice of the brilliant military strategist Mazer Rackham. Things are different now. Instead of stocking up on Raid, Colonel Graff (played by Harrison Ford) has an idea. That idea is to use children as military commanders. Graff needs, nay, earth needs someone who is fearless, ruthless, cunning and empathetic. Someone who is able to understand the enemy and crush them with video game-like precision.
Facebookers on that eternal quest to sum up all their emotions in a single picture, rejoice! No longer do you have to hunt around to find the perfect emoticon, or the perfect quote to convey how your day is going. Instead, you can choose from one of the thousands of emojis that are now at your disposal, making newsfeeds look like they were attacked by an amateur user of Microsoft Paint.
This won't be your typical movie review. The first half will be dedicated to points one and two. The latter half to point three. It's especially important, as Christians, to examine movies that feature an afterlife, demons and ghosts because it only goes to prove the idea of what we believe: spiritual warfare is real.
Written by Tyler Lamb; Media by Zach Bonner. Marvel has really made a name for themselves outside of the comic book realm with their (mostly)tied together cinematic universe. It all started out with the amazing, and to this day one of the best comic book movies of all time, Iron Man back in 2008. Phase one was finally completed with The Avengers last May. This May, we are treated with the beginning of Marvels phase 2, which will end with Avengers 2 but is starting with Iron Man 3. Will Iron Man be able to carry his own film after the very successful Avengers? Can he come back from the bomb that was Iron Man 2? The short answer, not really.
