Swooping in for another pass, Garo: Red Requiem is here to provide more monster-hunting action to the new year, with this movie adventure from the Garo television franchise. Sentai Filmworks has been taking names with these domestic Blu-ray releases, as it seems western fans can't get enough of Kouga and his crew of demon-slaying allies among the fabled Makai Knights. It was only October when we reported on their last home media title, Garo - Kiba: The Dark Knight.
Kraken Releasings' official synopsis sets the stage for their latest:
In the ancient war against the monstrous creatures known as Horrors, many Makai Priestesses have fought and died in battle, yet no woman has ever been chosen to wear the mystic armor of the Makai Knights. Kouga, the current bearer of the gold wolf armor ...
Ah, hell. Every Tom, Dick, and Harry decided to drop trailers for their mega-blockbuster these past two weeks. Must be another Star Wars December. This time, it's Ernest Cline's heavyweight pop culture champion Ready Player One, the bestselling book given life via the man who helped generate a large part of the very fan fervor his sci-fi adventure sought to invoke - famed director Steven Spielberg. And with this second extended look at the film, we have a ton of new iconic characters, images, and music cues to add to the growing pile that has nerds of all ages adjusting in their seats. Among these totemic titans is the anime super-robot tearing up the skies in a battle for the Oasis. No, it's not Voltron, like so many have misidentified him as. And no, it's not the Iron Giant, though he ...
Unleash your inner swordsman as you feast your eyes on this stunning faux trailer from writer/director/producer Okabe Junya of the Brave Storm super robot film. Those who are fans of Japan's unique offerings from the tokusatsu subgenre, both classic and current, may have something to smile about as the cast cracks their knuckles for this action-packed short with a surprise guest we didn't see coming.
Yamamoto Chihiro shows her prowess in the current Ultraman Geed TV series, as the sword-wielding badass Toba Laiha. Now, she fights for her life against a crew of vicious assassins. Meanwhile, the classic film hero Zatoichi is brought to life once more with the spellbinding performance of 1984's Kamen Rider ZX himself, Sugata Shun. The blind swordsman faces off with several terrifying nin...
The Jurassic Park franchise, like the prehistoric beasts that terrorize increasingly dumb humans in these films, refuses to die. With this in mind, the monstrously lucrative Jurassic World emerged, bursting free from its genetically-engineered egg, created in a lab by a committee of people dedicated to give the masses what they kinda-maybe-sorta wanted. And, despite the unmitigated disaster that ensued upon the release of these monsters (and that's just the critical response to the movie!), the powers that be called for another sequel in this unending journey down the reptilian throat of the T-Rex. At some point, we've got to reach the stomach acid that ends us for good, but I'm guessing that may not be for a while. In the meantime, here's a trailer.

The King of Monsters is stomping onto our screens this December with tons of cataclysmic holiday cheer! Godzilla and all his giant, radioactive frenemies are showing up for this event, where several of the franchise's most popular films will appear on the Criterion Channel from streaming site FilmStruck.
Here's what Criterion had to say about this endeavor, what may be a prelude to an eventual physical home video release:

Godzilla Raids Again
The armored hunters of the Garo universe reunite for one more blood-soaked battle against the demonic horde in Garo: Kaminokiba (Garo: Divine Fang), the film sequel focusing on Makai Knight Ryuga from the Garo: The One Who Shines in the Darkness television series. And his enemy for this installment in the action-horror saga, reprising his role from previous entries, is Inoue Masahiro, known to many fans of the tokusatsu subgenre as the dimension-hopping title hero of Kamen Rider Decade. Still making frenemies in strange places, I see, Tsukasa!
Garo mastermind Amemiya Keita returns to the franchise once more for writing and directing duties, serenaded by JAM Project, who provides the new theme song "Kaminokiba - The Fang of the Apocalypse" from their latest ...
Don't sleep on monster movies in 2017. After Godzilla kicked us off a few years ago, with a gentle push from Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Gareth Edwards (Star Wars: Rogue One), a number of new kaiju flicks have begun to rise from the ashes of former obscurity, breathing new life (and atomic breath) into the genre that Hollywood forgot.
It may not have seemed like it some short years back, but American cinema was once teeming with giant monster pictures, having contributed to the boom in business early filmmaking in the US once enjoyed. From classics like the original King Kong in 1933 to Godzilla in 1955, and between those two eras a plethora of titanic imitators were born, all trying to recapture the magic of those cinematic beasts. But, while theatrical exploits of these fantas...
