Resident Evil to get a Proper Movie from Capcom in 2008

I don't think there's that many successful game to movie adaptations so far apart from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Tomb Raider was so-so and the Resident Evil movies weren't really any good either (what's with everyone copying the Matrix effect?). I always thought that if they're going to make a movie out of a game, they might...


Ghibli’s Next Miyazaki Movie Revealed, “Ponyo on a Cliff”

Four years after "The Moving Castle", Hayao Miyazaki has revealed his next animated movie "Gake no Ue no Ponyo". According to Ghibli World's interpretation of a feature in "NNN News Real Time", the story doesn't seem to be based around a novel this time. The tale is going to be centred on 5 year old boy named Sousuke and how a princess...


Doraemon: Nobita's Dinosaur 2006 Remake Thoughts

Just found time to watch it tonight after getting it from the usual site where I get my Anime RAWs from. This is a remake of the 1980 animation which was the very first Doraemon theatrical feature. I don't know how the original movie's story starts off because my VHS video copy has a good chunk of the beginning cut off. Probably half an hour...


Gin-iro no Kami no Agito, A Mish Mash of Deja Vu Scenes?

Got round to watching the movie I bought during my recent trip to HK and it's alright but nothing memorable like the actual Miyazaki Ghibli movies. I won't describe what it's about because you can read all about it at the official English site. A lot of the scenes reminded me of different Miyazaki movies namely Laputa, Princess Mononoke...


Death Note Movie Part One, An Alternative Story

Yup, just watched the first part while the second part premieres today in Japan. The story's taken a different branch you could say. The start of the movie was a bit slow because they didn't really spend much time building up the tension but, it picks up after the first half an hour or so. So here's how the story's taken a slightly...


Death Note First Part Movie on TV

Needless to say, a RAW is already floating around on the internet with eager fans waiting for the subs. Well, another video on my "To Watch" list...


Death Note: The Last Name, Who will be the Last One Standing?

To the right we have screencaps from the first part of the movie and to the left, we have screencaps of the second part when the second and third Kira appears. So who will be the last one standing...? Fans will already know but, nevermind that XD This second part of...


Death Note Movie: First Part

The first part of the Death Note movie just premiered in Japan yesterday on Saturday. From what I've read it covers up to the FBI incident and, a few things have been changed such as Shiori now being Raito's girlfriend. They've also added in some original scenes. Luckily it looks like the movie will use the 'L' arc of the Manga as the base...
