Redline – A story about the most popular racing event in the galaxy, the Redline, and the various racers who compete in it.

If you are up for a fun, fast movie with great music and non-stop action, find a way to get to some kind of online service to get this 2009 anime film about one of the biggest, dangerous, and most illegal races in the galaxy. The Redline is not too far off, but to make it there, many racers must qualify in other prelim races, and we start this story as Sweet JP is racing in the Yellowline. Sweet JP (Patrick Seitz) looks like he came right out of the 1950s with a black greaser duck tail pompadour haircut that goes on for days, jeans and leather jacket. He is going against some big competition, but the strongest rival is……

Attack on Titan (2013-TV) Season 1

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……

Tomorrowland (2015) Screenshots

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……

Tomorrowland: Remember the future (2015)

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.……

The Iron Giant: It came from outer space!

There were many great animated films in the 1990s, but this has to be one of the best. Set during the Cold War, at the time of the launch of Sputnik and rampant McCarthyism, there was much for Americans to fear, especially things that came from unknown sources. In the winter of 1957, one great mystery came to a small town in Maine. Where it came from, we do not know, but this hulking robot had the capacity to learn from one young boy, Hogarth Hughes, about life and death, compassion and fear, and so much more. Hogarth is a pretty self-sufficient kid. His widowed mother works at a local diner as a waitress, and is often asked to work……
