The great thing about anime is that it is a limitless genre, and just about anything can happen in it. Anywhere, any time, past, future, parallel worlds, contemporary pop culture, you name it. Oddly, considering the title of this series, you would expect a tale about the Greek gods and their enemies and ancestors, but this has nothing to do with ancient history. Attack on Titan is set in a dystopian future about 2000 years from now. The technology has devolved back to steampunk tech, and things look pretty much like they did in the mid 19th century. Right there the similarities stop. This world is nothing like ours is, because there is a new, bold enemy against humanity, and they make any of history’s megalomaniacs look like bully kids on the playground.

This is one of the finer movies that I have seen to depict both dystopia and utopia all in the same film. You have both young and old, representing both and you see what happens when you feed the wrong wolf. That is something from the movie. It is making the point that is you feed the negative, all you will get is the negative but if you have a positive outlook then anything is possible, allowing you to see your dreams come true.
I found that the acting was both fun and frivolous and just a joy to watch. It has a high caliber cast and just with most Disney films a rollercoaster of highs and lows that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Since the film has already been reviewed by my wife, link below, I will not get into the specifics of the film right here. What I will tell you is that after watching this film you will want to watch it again. It is a film that the whole family can enjoy over and over again.

This great family movie is a wonderful wake-up call, and an amazing adventure rolled up into one somewhat confusing journey. It starts with a short cartoon about history and progress, and how everything man creates to better his world usually ends up getting to destroy it. Then we discover there is a secret place where artists and engineers can work together without government intervention to make the world a brighter, cleaner, and healthier place. A place that does not fear science or art, and when one tries to take in a bit of culture, they do not be berated and told to remember their place. This place was design by four of the most brilliant men of the 19th Century. Tomas Edison, Nikolai Tesla, Jules Verne, and Gustave Eiffel. The cartoon ends, and our story starts where we see Frank Walker (George Clooney) in the process of recording some sort of video about an upcoming doomsday. We hear the the voice of a young woman criticizing his words, offering up suggestions on other ways he might want to get the message across. He decides to tell his story from where it all began for him. Frank was an very young, aspiring inventor on his way to the 1964 World’s Fair. Most likely one of the most futuristic expos at the time. The set looks like something right out of The Jetsons, but this expo was a real place, and it was done during a time when the Space Age was at its height, and the sky was no longer the limit.

Back when Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley created these classic gothic monsters to scare us with throughout the ages, they most likely never dreamed we’d love them so much 150 plus years in the future and beyond. Apparently, neither did any of the monsters, because that is why Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) had the Hotel Transylvania built, but that was not the main reason. As humans, and to quote the Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast, “We don’t like what we don’t understand…” and such was the way we were with monsters during the 19th century, especially in Eastern Europe, which was about the time Dracula and his lovely wife had a sweet little vampire child, Mavis.

I just watched Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods and this one of the best DBZ movies that I have ever seen. Usually every DBZ movie that I had watched were like a hour, but this a real movie. This movie is about this god name Beerus, the God of Destruction, and he is looking to find the Super Saiyan god. Beerus is like a mummy cat. He acts like a cat and he looks sort of dehyrated. So goes to earth to find a Saiyan god and look for him.
He arrived at Bulma’s Birthday party. Vegeta was scared of him, so Vegeta tries to make happy, because Vetega’s father was his servant. Beerus likes the food on earth, but when he tries to get some pudding from Majun Buu, and Buu refuses to give any up, he goes on a rampage. Mr.Buu eats all the pudding. And we know Buu is stupid. When Bulma came up and slaps Beerus, Beerus slaps her back and Vegeta was very angry. Vetega fights with Beerus to honor Bulma. If someone does that to a woman, I will do the same. Goku came up and fights with Beerus. When he was fighting with Beerus, he be came a Super Saiyan God. Read more...(350 words, 7 images, estimated 1:24 mins reading time)
