On My Watch: 2016 Fall Anime

Better late than never. It’s been probably a year since I’ve last watched any anime. I think it was the summer batch of 2015 shows and I only had the chance to follow a few episodes of Akagami no Shirayuki-hime. I was pregnant then and had the habit of falling asleep in the middle of watching anything. A few months later, motherhood took over and I found that K Dramas were more to my fluctuating hormones’ liking. All...

McQuarrie to write Wolverine sequel

X-Men Origins: Wolverine has got to be one of the biggest disappointments this year. I wanted to slot in Transformers and G.I. Joe but since my expectations for both movies not so high as what I had for Wolverine, they don’t seem to quite cut it as disappointments. Wolverine was such a waste of the talents of Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber and even for a cameo – Ryan Reynolds. If anything, it’s almost two hours of...

Iron Man 2 footage leaked

The thing about Comic-Con is that studios and directors often give fans a really good preview of what’s coming. This leaked footage from Iron Man 2 supposedly contains the basic plot and a twist to the story. I haven’t seen this personally. Good thing YouTube allows you to get the embed code without having to watch the damn thing. SPOILER...

Star Trek DVD/Blu-Ray Trailer

Of all the blockbuster movies this year that was supposed to elicit fangasm from me this year, Star Trek was the only one who delivered through and through so far. An alternative story that didn’t veer off the original mythos of the series, but in itself was an original experience non-fans can truly enjoy. You can now take home the experience once the DVD and Blu-Ray are released on November 17 this year. It will include...

G.I. Joe rakes in big bucks

Other Sugoi staff members might not share my sentiments regarding G.I. The Rise of Cobra but it was awful. Sure it had a lot of explosions and some good action but a sketchy storyline and unestablished and undeveloped characterizations blew it for me. What a way to disappoint a guy who grew up loving G.I. Joe as a kid. Channing Tatum as Duke was basically a robot. Marlon Wayans as Ripcord came off as a teen movie token black guy...
