MARDOCK SCRAMBLE SECOND COMBUSTIONREVIEW:

Being the second part of a trilogy, it should come as no surprise that you need to have seen the first movie to understand what is going on. The first half of the movie deals with the aftermath of the assault that ended the first movie: Oeufcoque needs time to recover from his injuries, while Rune Balot tries to come to terms with putting him in that state in the first place. In the meantime, various characters give  background information about Oeufcoque, the Mardock 09 protocol and Boiled. The second half of the movie has Rune and the Doctor finally taking some direct action against Shell by going to one of his casinos and winning quite a bit of money playing poker and roulette. As the movie ends quite abruptly, it left me hoping that the third movie will be released soon.

MASS EFFECT: PARAGON LOST

Posted On February - 5 - 2013ADD COMMENTS

MASS EFFECTJames Vega was one of this reviewer’s favorite characters in the MASS EFFECT video game universe.  He accompanied Commander Shepard on many missions in MASS EFFECT 3, covering his back in action against the impressive array of enemies the main character encountered in the quest to liberate Earth from the Reapers- an ancient race that appeared every 50,000 years to reset the galactic clock and conquer races that had reached a certain level of development.  It was with some delight that news of an anime telling more about Vega’s back story was received.  We heard from him in the game about what he did as an Alliance Marine.  He was a crucial part of some of the earliest operations involving Earth’s Alliance against the Reapers and their allies, the Collectors, and literally had the physical and emotional scars to show for it.  But hearing the story as told to Shepard one day aboard his ship, the NORMANDY, was very different to seeing it played out in this offering from Production I.G. and Funimation.  This is a story that was, like the back stories of so many characters in the MASS EFFECT universe, ready for further exploration and in some ways, the creators of this film delivered all that could be expected of it.

EVANGELION OMNIBUS 1 - 3In a conversation, someone much younger that I confessed recently that he had not seen or read EVANGELION.  He had watched bits of the anime series, but found it lacking action(?!).  God only knows what he’s been watching instead.  I certainly didn’t want to.  If he saw it as a simple ‘boy and his giant robot’ story, as it can sometimes feel in the first few episodes of the anime series and its manga adaptation by character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, he might have been forgiven for his lack of judgement.  Unfortunately, I was unable to glean from him more useful information to help steer his way towards the path of EVANGELION enlightenment.  When Third Impact does come, I suspect his will be a lost soul in the resulting conflagration.  But if he ever sees review he should take the following advice: watch the series, the films and new version completely… and buy the omnibus edition of the manga currently being released by Viz.
