Just finished watching the movie Garo Red Requiem. Yes, as you can guess by the name it has to do with
the same Garo I’ve posted before. (check it out)
I’ve actually been eagerly awaiting this movie for some time. Or rather anything that has to do with Garo , was it worth my time? Let’s find out shall we?
Was it worth the wait?
Hard question. While I have waited for it since it was announced in 2009, I can’t say my life has revolved round it. Hehe. I’d probably wait longer for something Garo related to be honest.
Was if good?
Oh, yes! I liked it very much it felt like it should. Like a longer episode from the show. The story and the main Horror (the monsters in Garo’s universe) Lord Karma, where a bit on the “meh” side. At least most of the movie, Lord Karma and Garo had a pretty sweet fight near the end of the movie. And I guess that’s one of the things I’m a tad disappointed with when it comes to Red Requiem. There where a bit to many dull moments, like most movies. But I wish they would have used it better, sure they give us some back story on the characters. But I would liked to have them go deeper into it, I don’t really know… I tend to have these feeling just about every movie, probably because I want to fully “feel” the world they’ve built. Or something like that.
If you like Garo watch it! The action and fighting are top notch! And just as over the top like it was in the Garo TV-show. I missed some old characters like Zero, well mostly Zero actually. At least they could have implied to something about him, I like stuff like that. So now the waiting begins anew. For the next special Dark Knight Gaiden: Kiba hopefully we’ll get to see everything from the start regarding Kiba. From his early days as a good guy and his trip to the darkness. And let’s not forget the sequel to the first Garo TV-show, Garo Makai Battle Chronicle. No information on that yet, but I’m eagerly awaiting it.
Can’t wait until we get Dark Knight Gaiden! I want to see more of Kiba!

Sitting here waiting for the newest Transformers Prime episode to come out today, I just love this show. This really gets my nostalgia blood flowing. I am looking forward to future seasons of this show. Since IGN.com had and interview with one of the of the staff from Prime, namely Robert Orci. He confirmed a few things too them, a few things I am really looking forward to. Firstly he said there will be combiners!
Yes! Hoping we get Menazor, he is one of my favorite. I’d also like to see Predaking get some more love.
But the thing I’m mostly looking forward to right now is the Dinobots! Can’t wait to see how Grimlock will look in Transformers Prime. One thing I’m really hoping for when it comes to TF Prime and that is that we’ll actually see the war that occurred on Cybertron all those millions of years ago. Seeing Megatron as a good guy, slowly being corrupted by his on ideals. See Orion Pax rise to take on the roll and become Optimus Prime. See the friendship between them grow and then being torn apart by following what they think is right.
And here is a clip from something upcoming in Prime something BIG. Yeah, I’m gonna spoil even more! Its Unicorn! That gives me hope that we might actually see Primus too. Well at least crossing my fingers for that. The Autobots and Deceptions will probably have to call a truce to take care of home. And I wonder with the apperance of Unicron, is that an indication that Megatron might get turned into Galvatron? I hope not, I just love this Megatron. If they most put Galvatron in this show, I’m hoping he will a separate being from Megatron. Needless to say I am very excited over this.
And while we are on it, I’m greatly anticipating the Transformers Exiles book. That seems to have its release on September 27th, I liked Transformers Exodus very much so I much have this one too.

As some people might have guessed or grasped by now, I’m a fan of Tokusatsu shows. You know, Japanese live action shows with Super Heroes. Think Power Rangers and you are close, or you’ll get the gist of it.
And there was this one particular tokusatsu show that caught my attention and it was Garo. Also known as Ogon Kishi Garo or Golden Knight Garo. I’ll post something about the series as soon as I’ve rewatched and refreshed my memory of it. Well the big news is that the show is finally getting a second season! I’ve been waiting since 2006 for this! So I’m really hyped about this. For now its just called Garo 2, but its not the only thing coming. There will be a V-cinema I think they called it? That would be called Kiba The Dark Knight Gaiden.
Can’t wait to get more information or release date of this series, this how is definitely right up my alley. Love it. And here is a trailer for Kiba The Dark Knight, if you don’t like that or enjoy some of it. This series is probably nothing for you.

So I saw Thor last night. In 3D I might add, the movie in itself was really great. I liked it a lot, and can’t wait to the the Captain America movie. The only downside In my opinion was the 3D. Sure it was cool in some scenes, but for most times it was just irritating and pretty hard to follow sometimes. It might have been our cinema that had some half crappy 3D stuff, but I’m not impressed. And it really hurt my eyes afterwards. So I won’t be watching anymore 3D movies in that cinema at least, I don’t want to have eye pain. I honestly didn’t feel well after that experience with 3D, I was feeling strange all night. The movie is based on the comic from Marvel about the god of thunder, Thor. I was not to familiar with the character, I’ve had some previous encounters with the character via Avengers: Eart’s Mightiest Heroes.
I’m not going to go into detail about the movie or characters. Thor is arrogant and ignores his fathers, Odin’s wishes. He thinks he knows best and gets into a whole lot of trouble, for that Odin exiles him from Asgard. He lands in our world “Middle Earth”. He has been striped of his powers and like us he is a mere mortal, this banishment torments Odin. Since he has hopped to make Thor the new king of Asgard. He is fatigued and collapse, he enters the Odin sleep, in which he rejuvenates his powers. This makes his brother Loki, the new king of Asgard.
And If you are familiar with some of the Nordic stories of the gods, you can probably guess where this is headed. As I said before the movie was great and they make a couple of hints at other Marvel characters, like Hulk and Iron Man. And I love stuff like that. The action was kick ass and the slower story parts very good. I think they build up Thor’s movie universe pretty good, I can’t wait to see all of the Avengers assembled in the Avengers movies.
This is very great news for me! I had no idea that Futurama was getting a new season. It seems it starts right after where the forth and final movie ended.
The new season starts in June 2010! So looking forward to that, always liked this show so much more than The Simpsons, Family Guy and all other shows, similar to the ones I just named. Finally we get more good stuff from Zoidberg and Bender!
Can’t wait! Now I all want to hear it that Robot Chicken, will get a fifth season and I’ll be in happy ville!
Some people out there might know there is a new Transformers “cartoon” in the making. The last one made was Transformers Animated. And it was a pretty good show, better than the onces before it at least. Well, that’s what I think. This new series that will air this year(?), seems to be called Transformers: Prime. And there is next to no info on the series. Nothing more than Jeffery Combs who seems to have landed the roll of Ratchet. According to the picture that has been released the show seem to go more in the movie style, than in the style of the upcoming game,
Transformers: War for Cybertron. Which is a bit of a shame if proven true, but going with a movie style design on the Transformers would be awesome too.
Hope we can get some more info on this show soon, I’m very excited to hear more about this series. I want to know voice actors and other goodies. 2010 seems to be a good year for Transformers fans. A new series and a videogame that for once looks like it will be really good. I’m eagerly awaiting both show and game.

No, I’m not talking about Batman. I’m talking about the other world’s greatest detective. You know, Sherlock Holmes. I saw that new Sherlock Holmes movie today with my parents. The one starring Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law.
I’ve never been a fan of Sherlock Holmes, in fact I’ve always thought he was a pretty boring character. Interesting story around him and such, but boring. That’s why I’m so glad about this movie. They have added some humor, not so its silly but in my opinion they make Holmes so much better. I think it really fits this version of Holmes.
The movie didn’t feel long even if it was 2hours, if the movie had been bad those 2hours would have been murderous…
The music in the movie was also great, but then again its made by Hans Zimmerman. His music is always good. so if you haven’t seen the movie then go do it! Its very good. Now I’m really looking forward to the next movie with Robert Downey Jr, which is my most awaited movie this year. Namely, Iron Man 2.
