The Monster Squad

I don’t think I’d ever watched this back in the day, but I’ve always heard that it was pretty fun, so I was curious to check it out. You’d think I’d like this — set in the 80s, kids on bikes, etc. — but it just came off as too much of a Goonies-wannabe. I […]

Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters

This is the first part of a trilogy of animated films about Godzilla produced for Netflix, and it’s fantastic. It’s produced by the studio behind Knights of Sidonia, Ajin, and Blame, and has the same CG-animated look — and although I really enjoyed Sidonia and Ajin, I was let down by the Blame movie. Unlike […]

I got my hands on the demo of the upcoming 3DS version of this game, and was really excited to take it out for a spin. On the latest Nintendo Direct there was a mention of how the demo was set to help newbies to the series (like me) get started. It does indeed start […]

November Spawned Monster

This post has nothing to do with Morrissey. Does my last update date back to the summer? Oh my. You can probably guess that it’s been some busy times, first with the big PechaKucha Global Night we did back in September, and then this past week’s design festivities, which saw us do 3 PechaKucha events […]

Monsters University

I’m a bit surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie, considering that I don’t have any particularly strong love for the first one (liked it, but don’t remember loving it). I really, really liked this one, thought it was a fun story, and pretty damn funny. I mean, it’s no Wall-E or Up, but […]

Monster Remixes

I’ve really been enjoying the MONSTER animated series these past few months, based on the Urusawa Naoki manga, and Patrick’s Agenda blog brings news of a new remix compilation for the show that features remixes by the likes of Sunaga Tatsuo and Jazztronik (who’s NANAIRO album is now a favorite on Yuko’s iPod). It comes […]

Monster

Yuko just read the news that Urasawa Noaki’s terrific manga thriller MONSTER is going to be made into an animated TV series this April. Urawasa will be working on the adaptation, and it will be written for the screen by the guy who wrote Hayao Miyazaki’s SEN TO CHIHIRO NO KAMIKAKUSHI (SPIRITED AWAY). The budget […]
