I’m making an appearance on NexusGen Radio Program

What’s up?
This year has been interesting to say the least. In the five years I’m been writing this blog, 2015 was easily the most personal for me when to my entries. Incidentally enough, it’s also been the least productive I’ve been when it comes to film coverage. The good news is that I’m happier when I’m productive, which means I’m off my couch and throwing my potato costume into the trashcan. Afterall, Halloween has come and gone.

I’ve agreed to make a guest appearance on NexusGen Radio. Among things we’ll be discussing are the cosplay community as well as things that really need to stop happening in our community as a whole. Such as fandom bashing. Huh? What’s that? Notice I didn’t say being a fanboy? Because fan boys and girls are a unique part of the community. They are the hypemen and women of the shows in the community’s zeitgeist. Fandom bashers, are altogether a negative aspect of the community that when excluded improves the community.

Much love, Amanda! Sorry I lost your headphones, as the $2 ones I bought set a new precedent in mediocre audio output devices.

 

Mobster Movie Marathon Preview: ‘Sonatine’

Sonatine-1

With this second installment of our Mobster Movie Marathon, I’m finally getting the chance to see a ‘Beat’ Takeshi film. Mr. Takeshi seems to truly be a renaissance type of a guy, having done a little of everything one could imagine within the business of entertainment. I’m curious to see this guy’s directorial style as well as his acting chops. Supposedly, this film was a milestone, that many other movies that were produced later have tried to measure up to (in terms of it being a ‘great’ ganster flick). I’m going in too it with pretty high expectations; so I’m hoping It’s a good time. As usual if you have Netflix and want to follow my marathon this film is available for Instant Watch. Feel free to also send in your thoughts about the film to feedback@svmovieblog.net

Check out the trailer below:

Mob boss Murakawa (Takeshi Kitano) aims to merge his factions of power as he gets closer to middle age. His boss has the perfect assignment for him: to serve as mediator in a town where some of the gang’s divisions have become uncooperative with one another. Murakawa fears that he’s being forced out of the organization — and realizes just how right he was when he’s suddenly forced into a deadly ambush.
