Movie Review: Resident Evil: Retribution

By mizaki | | Movies, Reviews

Just so we are clear on the rule: When you try to look cool you never can do. With that said; lets take a quick recap of the franchise so far: Resident Evil – Good. Resident Evil: Apocalypse – Fine apart from Nemesis (I am Robocop). Resident Evil: Extinction – Ali Larter and other annoying characters. Resident Evil: Afterlife – Still Ali Larter! Plagas from nowhere and not explained at all. A very general overview as given to us at the start of the movie is something like: Alice worked for Umbrella that created a virus (of the “T” type) …

Animal Collective – Centipede Hz or: The Hipster Joy of New Purchases

By pete_the_lion | | Music, Reviews, Uncategorized

I had to physically restrain myself a couple of weeks back, and by that I’m not talking about all those leather items your Uncle keeps in his closet. I’d had the album on pre-release and while this usually isn’t a problem, this time around the band involved had the sheer insensitivity to give a free stream away over a week before the release. Shocking! Every day my fingers were itching to type in the web address to hear the fresh tunes but managed to hold off, as that would dilute one of my favourite things about new music. There is …

Movie Review: Dark Shadows

By mizaki | | Movies, Reviews

I marked this down as a “catch on disc” movie. Now it is, lets see if I was wrong to wait.

By Kode | | Website

What is the Associated Fanart? Basically it’s an association of members that has formed to propose standards and ideas for fanart. The association will also help pay for hosting costs for the site out of membership dues and any other funds it receives, therefore all donations will go through the association, as the association takes dues yearly our hope is to be able to pay for the server yearly as well, that is why we have a goal set for paying next years hosting costs with an indicator of what we are short of. While not directly connected to fanart.tv, …

Movie Review: Take This Waltz

By mizaki | | Reviews

If any of these put you off: Take This Waltz, Relationships, Indie. Stick with it as you may find this film a pleasant surprise.If you enjoyed Lost in Translation this may be a film you’ll enjoy as well. Written and directed by Sarah Polley, best known for staring in Splice recently and who first came to my attention in the excellent Go. Staring Michelle Williams, Seth Rogen and Luke Kirby with Sarah Silverman makes for quite an interesting cast. Listed as being released in 2011 this appears to be one of those films that had a very limited release and now …
