Mechs, demons, superheroes, video game legends & more

Last Friday is we posted our Nerds vs. the Hollywood Armageddon At San Diego Comic Con feature, where we discussed the balance between the hardcore fans and the Hollywood machine that has taken over the event. It’s not necessarily a bad thing — the money provides for quite a spectacle, and elevates SDCC into a unique […]

The latest peek at Guillermo del Toro's sci-fi "kaiju" thriller

Sometimes giant samurais, mechs, dragons & blondes In schoolgirl outfits CAN save your movie

OK, I know Miss Madeleine annihilated Sucker Punch last week with a blisteringly accurate review, but after seeing it this week I just gotta throw in my 2 cents. First off, she’s technically 100% right — the movie was riddled with weakness and flaws: the acting was atrocious (Vanessa Hudgens is a Golden Raspberry frontrunner), […]


We were all up on the Sucker Punch trailer ever since we first laid eyes on it this past summer at Comic Con. After 300 and Watchmen, faith in director Zack Snyder was strong. Sucker Punch certainly had every far flung element needed to be a great flick, and maybe that’s the problem. Miss Madeleine […]

Vancouver Film School's Patrick Biason's "A Gentlemen's Duel"

Created by Vancouver Film School student Patrick Biason, A Gentlemen’s Duel is basically Japanese mech battle anime filtered through a steampunk lens. Great animation, and who doesn’t enjoy one giant robot trading fisticuffs with another giant robot? No one, that’s who.
