Ultraman Geed 11 Shows Its Receipts in Best Episode Yet

Ultraman Geed 11 Shows Its Receipts in Best Episode Yet

Articles, Blog, Kamen Rider, Movies & TV, Reviews, Toku, Ultraman
Well, this is hilarious. Two episodes after we issue criticisms at Ultraman Geed, the latest entry into the Ultraman franchise, for its lack of punch, they serve up what is quite easily their greatest effort to date. Not only is it the most stylish, action-packed episode so far, it disperses story concerns that were mounting in the lead-up to this installment. Nice timing. Director Taguchi Kiyotaka infuses the episode with a visual flair unlike any of Geed's previous chapters, proving exactly why the Ultra franchise needs to keep this man onboard as long as they can. From the tense dialogue sequences between the devilish Kei and the show's plucky young hero Asuka to the high-octane battle sequences both above and within the crumbling city, "The Geed Identity" is a cut above the rest. ...

Power Rangers: The 10 Best Episodes

Articles, Blog, Movies & TV, Power Rangers, Reviews, Toku
Top 10 lists are funny. If someone were to ask us a year from now the same question that prompted this list, you could be forgiven for somehow coming up with a completely new set of titles. That's not because we're fickle or indecisive, but because we're talking about Power Rangers, a franchise that boasts a formidable episode number that climbs north of 800! And while a few (or more) of them could be tossed into the category of half-hours some would like to forget, there's a ton more that made us laugh, or cheer, or even cry. So, instead of reaching for a "definitive" list of sweepingly elite installments of this epic franchise, let's check out a few big favorites, presented from one dedicated viewer's perspective. When people wonder why we watch this show, for some of us, the ans...

Can we talk about the new Kamen Rider Build? I have to talk about this. I need to be reassured that I'm seeing what I'm seeing and that it's not going to be taken away from me when they finally realize what they've done and decide it's all a really expensive mistake. This is too much of what I wanted all at once. Who's about to get fired for this magnificence?! The brilliance begins at minute one, with the greatest recap ever committed to film. The braggadocious smarty-pants Kiryuu Sento and his new fugitive pal Banjou Ryuuga have dueling summaries, bantering even as they tell us what happened in last week's premiere episode. I already love these idiots and it's only been like twenty minutes. Please tell me I can keep them, mommy! After the recap, we get our first look at the openi...

Ultraman Geed: Here We Go (Away)

Articles, Blog, Movies & TV, Reviews, Toku, Ultraman
In the new Ultraman Geed, the young son of the nefarious Ultra villain Belial must rise up to save humanity from ultimate extinction. It's the perfect launchpad for an epic entry into the tome of Ultraman stories, years in the making. With the pedigree on display here, you'd have no reason not to think this would rock every sock on this and all other Earths. But while the show isn't totally abysmal, we can't tell yet if it counts as great either. If you just glance the stats for this show, it would seem to have the building blocks of something remarkable. Since Belial's debut in the Ultra Galaxy Legends movie, the ambitious Ultraman-gone-bad has grown in popularity, challenging literal armies of Ultra heroes across the multiverse. The idea that he might have a son who opposes him, ...

2017 has been a year of highs and lows for me as a tokusatsu fan. At one end of the aisle, there were heavy hitters. Big surprises and reinvention, breathing new life into what had seemed a little too routine of late. At the other end, we had some duds. Weak efforts with minimal creativity and just no drive to wow us. Sometimes those two things would happen back-to-back within the same franchise! Amid all the chaos emerged a title seeking to recapture my heart when it appeared all but lost in the shuffle of rotating monsters, morphers, and mecha. Let's take a closer look at Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger, and see where it ranks on the scale so far. Not gonna lie, when this show first premiered, I completely gushed. We're finally going where Super Sentai has never gone before, taking the franc...
Kamen Rider Build Shakes Up A Winning Formula

Kamen Rider Build Shakes Up A Winning Formula

Well, that was fast. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was whining about how I'll have to spend the next year with the costumes from Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, wondering if maybe the franchise was finally about to lose me. Fast-forwarding to the end of that particular race, my thoughts on both Ex-Aid and the Kamen Rider franchise have gone through a transformation about as drastic as any costumed do-gooder. If only every show we watched had this speedy a turnaround. In Kamen Rider Build, our new story commences in what appears almost to be the beginnings of a kind of post-apocalypse. A nation divided into three distinct sectors after a startling event in the aftermath of a fateful Mars exploration mission that brought back the mysterious Pandora Box, an item speculated to hold gr...
