  1. This new anime is awesome Setting One hundred years prior to the beginning of the story, giant humanoid creatures called Titans (巨人 Kyojin?) have forced humanity to devolve to a medieval level of technology and to retreat into a system of concentric Walls (ウォール Wōru?) known as Wall Maria (ウォール・マリア Wōru Maria?, outermost), Wall Rose (ウォール・ローゼ Wōru Rōze?, middle), and Wall Sina (ウォール・シーナ Wōru Shīna?, innermost). Inside these walls, humanity lived in peace for one hundred years. But in the beginning of the story, a sudden attack by a gigantic sixty-meter Titan and a smaller Titan covered in armor plates causes the outermost wall to be breached, forcing mankind to abandon the land between Walls Maria and Rose, leading to famine and turmoil. Little is known about the Titans, giant creatures that are usually between 3-15 meters tall with a few exceptions. The Titans attack and devour ordinary humans on sight instinctively, although apparently they do not need to feed to survive, as they do not prey on other animals, even with the absence of humans, surviving by absorbing sunlight. They have hard skin and regenerative abilities, and can only be killed by a deep incision on the base of the neck. This weakness led to the development of the 3-D Maneuver Gear (立体機動装置 Rittai Kidō Sōchi?), allowing humans to navigate quickly in a three-dimensional space to access the Titans' weak point. Though it allows great mobility to a skilled user, it carries a large risk of overtaxing the muscles, thus a special physical conditioning and sense of balance is necessary to master it What struck me is the easy the characters die, it is not glorius, it is not pretty, is is unkind and raw. the characters are scared, but some have the will to push on, others break, many die, it is such a good anime It has insane battles using high speed maneuvers using harpoon harnesses and swords here is the opening http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKzum5xCGjQ
  2. http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/news.phtml/25794/halo-legends-anime-series-announced.phtml Microsoft has announced it has teamed up with top Japanese anime studios to create a collection of original short films that it says will take the Halo franchise "to new frontiers". "Halo Legends" will bring the Halo franchise and its sci-fi saga to an entirely new medium, in the form of several original anime short films. The short stories will explore different times, themes and characters from the Halo universe and will be distributed globally by Warner Home Video with release and distribution plans to be revealed soon. In the meantime, Xbox 360 gamers can look out for previews on Xbox LIVE in the autumn with a new experience called "Halo Waypoint" due to bring Halo news, podcasts, trailers, screenshots and exclusive video footage.

  4. Looks very good and high production for a tv series Judge Dredd meets iRobot Karl Urban + JJ Abrams = awesome cant wait The show will be predictable, solve murders each week, while the robot teaches the human what it means to be alive and how the human grows to trust the robot but this is one ill be following Also i am glad when film stars do TV shows as the quality is usually higher (24) but the worry is they don't like to be tied up for too long due to a film deal that pays way more for a lot less time Click here to view the article

  6. cant finish s3, Something just feels off about the show, dont know what though..
  7. I think back is the better colour for what he is, Black is a colour associated with tactical squads / special divisions of law enforcement like SWAT. H now seems more cyborg then robot, which i think will be peoples biggest gripe Alex died, and was re-animated as a cyborg, more machine then man, and learnt humanity again this take seems to be more cyborg, that is essentially an augmented human, human feelings with a programmable body, Personally i don't think the film needed to be remade, but that doesn't mean it will suck,. it will be entertaining at least. I look forward to it, Back when robocop was made in the 80's people could barly fathom the idea of touch screen, 3d imagining or even flat screens. I am curious to the take of the future this film will have. Personally I think he should be more mobile, stronger faster and smarter. Why does he need 3 inch layers of steel to be bullet proof when new compounds of metal can be 5mm thick and more resistant, Less walking tank more walking arsenal.
  8. If the sentinals are this height, most mutants with damage style powers should rolfstomp them Optic blast should take out a dozen or so in second
  9. Stupidity should be punished, but not 8 years of prison, (anal therapy) a fine 30 days jail seems more reasonable..
  10. a modern anime with no fan service, just action and story,,,, rare
  11. was a she,
  12. i think the animation does help it, I imaging it might be boring as a manga, but the anime is very well made
  13. I think people would be rooting for the terminator,
  14. Imagine your self in Ricks position, You wake up 30 days after the world went to hell, Main goal is survival for you and any survivors you find I personally would seek shelter, but IMO you dont want to have your back to a wall or be too exposed where you can get flanked, Zombies are not fast or sneakey, but can easily swarm you in crazy numbers, My plan would be head for the coast Sea air should increase decomposition of the zombies, if they decompose to the point of ligaments rotting they wont be mobile anymore, and significantly weaker to blows from blunt objects Also while on land keeping on beaches will benefit in that the ocean can disguise noise and strong sea smell might cover the scent of fresh meat, and worst case scenario, swim out 30 ft and the zombies will loose you. My main goal would be Finding a medium to large yacht and anchoring like 200ft off shore so i would be a save heaven to rest. eat and most of all sleep Using a boat it will be easy to travel up and down the coast looking for supplies, many beach houses will be stocked with supplies and rich people will have plenty of spare boats if you need a bigger one or more fuel. Fish!! endless supply of food, assuming you are alone or a small group, a couple hours a day fishing will take care of hunger, During winter you can sail south for more ideal climates, Places in the Caribbean will have coconuts growing near the sea so you wont have to venture in land too much, Lastly raiding coast guard ships / bases will get you guns and ammo. Anyone have a Zombie apocalypse plan?
  15. http://www.superherohype.com/news/articles/177283-photos-from-the-set-of-birdman-starring-michael-keaton It could be good if done right, it is ment to be a dark comedy, Either ay, I though Michael Keaton was too old personally for the role.

  17. for that episode this sprung to mind
  18. Once upon a time was surprisingly good show It has all the fariy tails we know, but each has a spin,

  20. I always saw shield as more military then how this show seems to be moving towards the stars all look like models who wear skinny jeans and designer hair cuts apart from coulson who for some reason was retconned to be alive and nick fury will be suprisingly absent also will super heroes cameo, Or will it be c list heroes at best like iron fist...
  21. This is just a bit unbelievable Seems like every crime is a Vesen, and every time he is surprised it is a vesen... Also not much seems to happen in Grimm overall, It is very much a monster of the week show at the moment, with a weak overall story Supernatural had a few bad seasons, but still going very well, Supernatural has the brothers always travelling, they go to the crazy, Grimm just seems too centralised, also they need to explore Grimms more, are there more then 1 family of grimms, could there be a few dozen, maybe have him leave portland for a few ep's to go vesen hunting for some reason... Sup's problem us 65% of every season is filler and the overall arc story is awesome, but too few ep;s focus on it. grimm is still young, so i hope they pick up the pace and scope
  22. i was going to skip this, but that trailer looks great I wonder is the horseman will be the series bad or will it be monster of the week routine a bit like grimm / supernatural
