Cool Videos: The Simpsons opening done in the style of Cowboy Bebop anime

I'm constantly surprised that THE SIMPSONS is still on the air. Hell, the movie is celebrating its tenth year anniversary this year ! Now, like many who grew up with the show, I became disillusioned with the show at a certain point, and haven't watched it in probably five years (though a run of ten close-to-perfect seasons, and at least five more really good seasons, isn't...

New Matrix not a reboot or remake after all, according to writer Zak Penn

Like most kids who grew up in the '90s, I love THE MATRIX. Hell, I still wear black trenchcoats because of it (well, also, because it hides my weight). I'm even a MATRIX sequel apologist, as while I don't think they hold a candle to the first film (which is a masterpiece), they are still fun movies with some great things in them, like the freeway car chase in RELOADED and...

Makoto Shinkai's anime masterpiece Your Name finally gets a U.S. trailer

I have to admit that I'm a little ashamed of myself for the way in which I've been ignoring anime these past few years. The list of films and shows I have yest to check out is sickening and I really do hope to rectify the situation as soon as my schedule allows. Now, it looks as if I'll be adding another title to my ever-growing list of shame after watching this...

Hayao Miyazaki will come out of retirement, again, for another feature film

Ha! I totally called this bit of news back in 2013, when legendary filmmaker,  Hayao Miyazaki , announced his retirement just as the Oscar-nominated film, THE RED TURTLE, went into production. Though, to be fair, I think we all saw this coming. Just for a laugh, I can't help but imagine Hayao reciting the line, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back...

Jennifer Connelly, Christoph Waltz, Mahershala Ali join Alita: Battle Angel

Man, it feels like  James Cameron has been trying to make this thing forever . Honestly I thought it was never going to happen, especially since it seemed like he was going to be busy making AVATAR movies until he croaked. But his passion project, the live-action adaptation of the anime ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL, is finally coming to fruition! Unfortunately he won't be behind the...

Adult Swim releases trailer for new season of Samurai Jack

I unfortunately missed out on SAMURAI JACK when it first aired, putting my energies into other cartoons at the time. Which is a shame, because I have so many friends vouching for it, and from what I've seen the action and animation does indeed look sleek and fun. There's just so much I have to catch up on... Regardless of my personal feelings, however, a new...

New clip released for Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson

Anime-to-live action adaptations, at least in America, haven't had a good track record have they? DRAGONBALL, THE LAST AIRBENDER, SPEED RACER (a film which I love, but I know is at best divisive), etc. have all been critical and commercial disasters. While they've had better success in Japan (like the recent ATTACK ON TITAN adaptation), there's something that seems to...

Takashi Miike to direct film based on popular manga Jojo's Bizarre Adventure

I love Takashi Miike films. They are just so out there and f*cked up, especially his most popular films (at least in the US) AUDITION and ICHI THE KILLER. But what's great about the prolific director is that he does a variety of types of films, like the kid-friendly NINJA KIDS!!! or the colorful and faithful ACE ATTORNEY film based on the videogame. I mean, the man has...
