The price of eternal life: A review of Fairy Tail the Movie – Phoenix Priestess

Some anime moves make for an excellent catch up and introduction for fans. Only recently, for example, I suggested that Strong World was a great way to introduce people to One Piece. Sure; you didn’t know the background to all the characters but you still got a flavour for the series. Fairy Tail the Movie: […]

Official Ant-Man movie poster

It’s not been an easy ride for Ant-Man but now, at least, there’s an official movie poster. There’s Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd and an ant steed. Look at that ant! Also; there’s the Ant-Man costume which looks pretty high-tech. There’s a lot of neon. I said “official” poster … and that kinda works as it […]

The powers need to be catchy while not distracting from the plot. The Posthuman Project asks […]

Monstrous: A review of the One Piece Movie – Strong World

I was lucky. The first time I watched Strong World was years ago and on the big screen during the 2010 Scotland Loves Anime. It was actually my introduction to One Piece. When I went from the movie to the original show it was quite a change. That’s because the show is so old it […]
