Bleach Hell Chapter Movie

Masked Hell denizens appear in Karakura town so Rukia and Renji are sent to investigate the matter. After a fight with them they manage to rescue Karin(Ichigo’s sister) from them but they return to hell with Yuzu(also Ichigo’s sister). Having rescued Karin, Kokuto(a hell denizen himself) befriends Ichigo and they set out to save Yuzu from Shuren(the commander of the denizens that kidnapped Ichigo’s sisters).

The fourth movie for Bleach, honestly they can never make enough and this time around its a good amount better then the previous one. This is a 2010 movie but I have only had a chance to see it these days, I’m just jumping into shows and movies without thinking of the order I’m watching them in. Bleach still on hold for me, and I’m probably going to catch up with it soon but for now I was planning on satisfying my urge to watch Bleach and this movie did it. I saw forms of Ichigo as he developed to fight stronger opponents and I just love that no matter how many times he gets beat down he keeps coming back for more. It was a pretty decent movie with a plot that kept developing and this time around I want to continue watching the anime, if you are a fan of Bleach and haven’t seen this movie then you should.

Review: Mazinkaizer SKL

The latest installment of one of the most popular Anime series around the world. Above Japan waits Remuria, a colossal floating islandleftover from the last world war. It s a lawless wasteland of robot super-weapons from a forgotten age of military might. Receiving word that the unstable island s reactors might explode and vaporize Japan at any time, the Japanese government awakens the most destructive force ever devised MazinKaiser!

This 3 episode OVA is AWESOME, no other words can describe it. The story of this OVA is very weak and there’s barely any character development, but what this OVA lacks in story and character development, it makes up for with probably the Most Awesome Mecha fight scenes that are almost as amazing as the mecha fight scenes in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The story here is really just an excuse to show these Awesome fight scenes and that alone is enough to overlook the OVA’s flaws and consider it to be one of the best OVAs I have seen in a while.. Now if you want a mecha show that has a deep story with strong character development and where the Mech’s have a more significant meaning to the show’s story, then this OVA is not for you, but if you want some Hardcore Mech fight scenes, than this OVA is definitely for you. Now I remember why I loved Mazinger Z, Mazinkaiser, and Grendaizer as a kid, these amazing fights make me want to jump right into the robot. Lets hope they come up with a continuation or more episodes.

Predator Berserker Mask

I have probably seen Predator and Predator 2 a combined amount of 100 times over the past two decades. There is something very cool knowing that there could be an alien culture that is based on a warrior culture and I love their weapons and when they go to battle. Recently I had a chance to get myself the new Predator Berserker Mask from AlterEgoComics and after a month of figuring out where to place it, I mounted it right above my door so I can see it when I’m sitting at my desk.

The quality of the mask is amazing, it really looks like the real mask from the movie, and for those who don’t remember the Berserker is the big Predator is Predators, the one that pretty much rips people apart. There are other Predator Masks out at this time and I’m contemplating getting another one but not sure if I should get the Falconer, Tracker, or Stalker, all of them look intimidating. The coolest part is when the lights are off in the room and the red LEDs are on, looks like its really aiming for something. Now I want to watch all the Predator movies again, and AVP doesn’t count even though it was a cool concept to begin with but the execution of the AVP movies is a disaster.

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

Tucker & Dale are on vacation at their dilapidated mountain cabin when they are attacked by a group of preppy college kids.

This is probably one of the funniest horror comedies I have seen in a while, a twisted situation turns into crazy situation. Two hillbillies meet a bunch of college kids, and one of the kids knocks her head and falls into the lake, the hillbillies save her but the college kids think they are kidnapping her and going to cook her alive. Tyler Labine (The Big Fat Guy with the Beard) is one of my favorite comedians and he is one of the hillbillies, and the college kids try to kill them to save their friend, and the hillbillies don’t know what the hell is going on. The movie just keep getting more twisted and hilarious and these hillbillies don’t know what the hell is happening.

Review: The Warriors Way

The world’s greatest swordsman abandons his warrior clan to start a new life in the American Badlands in THE WARRIOR’S WAY, a visually dazzling modern martial arts adventure with stunningly choreographed fight sequences and gravity-defying stunts.

Ninjas and Cowboys in the same movie will always be an entertaining movie, don’t expect this movie to win any awards but it does entertain. A ninja who leaves his clan and moves to America to protect a baby his clan have sworn to kill, and lucky for the baby that he is the best assasin as protection. I love the martial mix of the movie and the ninjas flying everywhere, and then there is the bad cowboy ransacking the town, turning the end of it into one huge fight between ninjas and cowboys.

Review: Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood

Plot Summary: Two brothers lose their mother to an incurable disease. With the power of “alchemy”, they use taboo knowledge to resurrect her. The process fails, and as a toll for using this type of alchemy, the older brother, Edward Elric loses his left leg while the younger brother, Alphonse Elric loses his entire body. To save his brother, Edward sacrifices his right arm and is able to affix his brother’s soul to a suit of armor. With the help of a family friend, Edward receives metal limbs – “automail” – to replace his lost ones. With that, Edward vows to search for the Philosopher’s Stone to return the brothers to their original bodies, even if it means becoming a “State Alchemist”, one who uses his/her alchemy for the military.

Now this is an anime to be remembered, the first part of Full Metal Alchemist ended on a high note, and then there was the movie. I didn’t know there was a full series that was going to be released, and it was even better then the first part. Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood picked up where the first one ended and there were some filler episodes to help people remember what was going on. Then it just went into a crazy plot where they are fighting the homunculi while trying to find the cure for their bodies, they start uncovering a deep story and plot related to the character called “Father”. Even with all the odds against them they team up with people they have met over their lives to try to fight this insane foe. I can’t describe how good the story was but if you have any inkling for anime this should be at the top of the list.

Review: Tron Legacy

The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father’s creation turned bad and a unique ally who was born inside the digital domain of The Grid.

Sam Flynn is the young man with a huge company to inherit which he wants nothing to do with, except to badger them and embarrass them whenever possible. Only to find a contact from his father’s old office, but his father has been missing for over a decade. The story picks up some time after Jeff Bridges disappears into The Grid and being stuck there for a very long time, and his son stumbles into his digital world. This is one hell of a science fiction movie that I loved from beginning to end, I kept wanting more and the story was great, and the graphics of their world and how everything was related together through the lighting patterns. Jeff Bridges does an amazing job in this movie, and brought back memories when I remember see it on VHS in the 80s for the first time. If you are scifi fan then this movie is a must.

Review: The Playbook: Suit Up. Score Chicks. Be Awesome! & The Bro On the Go

After reading the first book from Barney Stinson I had to get the other two books recently released. One book being The Playbook and the other being Bro On the Go, these are essential reading for any man, it sets the rules and clearly shows a path. Barney Stinson is a man among men, he has cut through all that is confusing for men and made it so simple for any Bro to live his life to his most Awesome potential.

When reading the playbook you can hear the voice of Barney Stinson in your head and you can’t stop laughing at the most insane ideas. Some of them are lame and you wonder how the hell he gets laid, and some are genius but it would take the utmost precision to pull off those plays. Then Bro On The Go gives you all the rules necessary to act in life when in the mall or at the office. Easy light and fun to read, the essential to life from Barney Stinson.

Out Of It

IMG_6409

The last week I have under the weather and feeling that I’m losing energy, and wake up with a sore throat and lack energy. The last week and the next few weeks are filled with work and a lot of other preparations, and the last thing I need is to get sick. I didn’t want to take antibiotics as I want sick yet so I started taking effervescent vitamin C with a bottle of water in the morning, even though I want to take it twice a day since it tastes pretty good but the directions state once a day. And I have been taking Nice Lozenges where ever I go and that has helped but its been a slow process, it seems everyone is getting some sort of virus these days. I’m still trying to operate at full throttle but I didn’t jump on the bike this weekend since I felt that I like the energy and the concentration, and when I riding I need to be at my best to ride and I didn’t want to make a mistake so sleeping in was a better choice. One of the highlights though of the weekend for me was going to Ace Hardware and luckily the have a new stock of Craftsman and Stanely tools which I enjoyed purchasing a few. I’m loving the weather the last few weeks, I can just do with out the dust, I don’t mind it raining either, I think we could use a good rain.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc

Now this new phone has peaked my interest, I have always been a fan of Sony Ericsson but I feel like they haven’t gotten the smartphone formula down yet except when I saw the look of this phone and the specifications. Its a powerful phone inside a very thin sexy looking case and its running Gingerbread (Android 2.3), when they first launched the Xperia they launched it with Android 1.6, and Android 2.01 was out by then and they didn’t upgrade. SE makes great hardware but very slow to upgrade their software, this is where HTC excel, they keep updating your software and the phone just keeps on going.

Specifications:

  • 8.7mm Thick
  • The Arc comes with a 4.2” display
  • GPS
  • 8.3Mpix Camera
  • HDMI Out
  • 1GHz Snapdragon CPU
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

My phone life cycle started off with Nokia back in the early 90s, then switch to Ericsson (before the merger) in early 2000, then switching to Sony Ericsson, and just recently switched to Android with the Google Nexus first came out. Now this phone is making thinking of switching back to the Sony Ericsson platform but the best part is that its all Android and I won’t really won’t have to do much except sign in with my Google account and everything will sync automatically.

I was thinking of upgrading next year, it was probably going to be one of the HTC phones which are to be announced some time in February but the Xperia Arc is a definite candidate with its specifications and style, I just hope its released very soon.
