JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM – Sequels Always Find a Way…

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. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom see...

Here's a new promotional video for Pacific Rim: Uprising, the sequel to the original post-apocalyptic monster movie where humanity must fight off extinction with the enormous war machines known as Jaegers. John Boyega of Star Wars: The Last Jedi leads the cast of world-saving pilots, but one actor that was curiously left out of much of the movie's footage shown so far was Rinko Kikuchi, whose integral character had been a welcome presence in the first Pacific Rim and whose absence was sorely felt by this viewer when the sequel began rolling out promo for its 2018 release. Right off the bat, director Steven S. DeKnight (Marvel's Daredevil series), who takes the reigns from creative maestro Guillermo Del Toro (The Shape of Water) for this entry, namechecks some of the godfathers of toku...

Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War promises to be the largest collection of iconic, larger-than-life heroes the landscape of live-action cinema has ever seen. But what if things had been just a little bit different? What if the world needed saving not by the cape-flapping, shield-tossing likes of the Avengers, but by some other Disney icons? We all know their names. We hear their footsteps and tremble. Straight out of the vault, they've begun their march toward victory against the terror of Thanos and his horde of deadly minions. It's the Walt Disney cartoons! And they're here to do some avenging. For the five people left alive who haven't seen it, the Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropped last week and quickly broke records on streaming giant Youtube for the most views in the sh...
Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 3

Review: Kamen Rider Build SODO Figures Wave 3

Blog, Uncategorized
Kamen Rider Build goes 3 for 3 with its SODO toy line, hitting yet another home run. This set is the first one where I highly recommend getting a case, since you will need duplicates. This set consists of 3 and a half figures: Build LionShoubosha form, KeyDragon form, half of Cross-Z and Blood Stark (I still refuse to call him Stalk). Both Cross-Z and KeyDragon require Build's Dragon half to be complete, so to have both figures proudly displayed in your collection, you're gonna need 2 Dragon boxes. Luckily, cases come with 3, so you'll even have an extra, just in case. All the figures are beautifully articulated and the stickers are fantastic. If you use my clear coat nail polish method as well, they'll stay on nice and strong. So again, this is a must own for any Build fan. https://you...

Lucky Number Thirteen has arrived for the outstanding Kamen Rider Build, and there may be no better number than to drop this episode's huge revelation concerning one of the show's biggest, baddest villains so far. Okay, so it's not the most shocking plot twist of all time. We've been speculating for months about the identity of the venomous Blood Stalk and his unknown motivations as he sarcastically taunts our heroes into a frenzy week after week. What excites us the most about this story is not that one person or another was finally unmasked as the culprit, but how the show chooses to make light of it, and the way its characters react. After the apparent death of straight-laced lackey Utsumi at the hands of his own boss, Gentoku, we begin this episode in the middle of the phone conve...

The new heroes of Power Rangers HyperForce continue their trek through time and space, making a rough landing near the famed city of Corinth. It's episode six of HyperRPG's tabletop role-playing game series that sees its five players traversing the Power Rangers Universe on a new adventure, this time making a pit stop in the post-apocalyptic environs of Power Rangers RPM.

Level up the drama with these promotional videos for the new Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Trilogy releases. In the aftermath of the colorful explosionfest of the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid television series, there's plenty of unfinished business (and toys to sell) from the cast of doctors-turned-video-game heroes fighting to protect their patients from the bizarre "game sickness". And they're not pulling any punches with this set of home video sequels. People are screaming bloody murder, or just plain getting bloody murdered, as shots are fired, people have conversations with themselves, and computer-generated super-nurse Poppy is... just as Poppy as she's ever been. Check em out. https://youtu.be/fpfMwtLwOWU https://youtu.be/knTTb8wpaSA Daaamn. Not only did they bring back Hiro's lost lady Saki for on...

The Power Rangers brand is having something of a silent renaissance of late. While the television series has gone on for years, almost invisible to most adults yet never off the airwaves with new episodes for more than a single year since the franchise's start in the early 90s, the Rangers have branched out considerably to other entertainment mediums, often with strong results. The Teenagers With Attitude, and the many young adults that launched from their footsteps in the years after Angel Grove was a mere glimmer in their visors' display panel, dominated the attention of many curious watchers this year, whether it be on our phones with games like Power Rangers Legacy Wars, or on the big screen with the franchise's first feature-length movie in decades. There's also Power Rangers Hyp...

The monster menagerie at Tsuburaya Productions is on a roll this season, delivering one surprising announcement after another to the enraptured heart-eyed fans of their action/adventure titles. We got a tease for the new Ultraman anime coming in 2019, based upon the current manga series of the same name. We're shaking and crying as we wait to get our hands on the new Redman comic, reviving the old school hero in a new medium. Both of these announcements surrounding the good news that Tsuburaya scored a major victory in its extensive legal battle over the international rights to some of their most beloved material. But wait, there's more! After rolling out a sweet Blu-ray release for their live-action special effects series Gridman: The Hyper Agent, they've at last released a brief tea...
