Valvrave the Liberator

Thanks to the development of the Dyson Sphere, The majority of the human populace lives in space. The Dorssia Military Federation, and the Atlantic Rim United States exist as major Military countries, while JOIR is a neutral principality, the story follows Haruto Tokishima as a normal boy going thru high school in T.C (True Calendar) year 71. This all changes when Haruto meets the humanoid weapon Valvrave.

Finding out that your population is under attack with no hope of getting away, and the Valvrave are their only hope. I really like the precedence of the story and how it develops. There are more players who show up as the story progresses but season two is a hell of continuation with a crazy ending. It’s not as good as Lelouche The Rebellion but still pretty good and fun to watch, got to enjoy how the Valvraves develop in the story and their pilots.

Review: Majestic Prince

MajesticPrince3

Plot Summary: In the latter half of 21st century, humans leave the Earth and begin to live in space. In order to adapt to the environment in space and deal with the hostile aliens in Jupiter, genetically engineered children called “Princes” are artificially raised and trained to be pilots of armed robots “AHSMB (Advanced High Standard Multipurpose Battle Device). This is a story about one of the teenage “Princes”, Hitachi O Izuru, who studies in an academic city Grandzehle.

MajesticPrince2

One of the funner Mecha Animes from this season, I do enjoy most Mecha shows just because I love Mecha anime so much but this one had a great story and I loved the development in it. The characters were serious but fun, they were in a difficult spot but I love how the machines turned out to be a lot more then just machines, an extension of the pilot themselves. As the show progresses more and more is revealed about the Wulgaru, and it just keeps getting more intense. A very well done mecha anime with a decent story line and awesome mechas. I honestly love the combination of CG and drawing in this anime, it is an excellent mix, for any Mecha fan you will enjoy this.

Review: Star Trek Into Darkness

STID1

After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

STID2

The first Star Trek movie from JJ Abrams was Epic, it just revitalized the whole franchise, and I was really looking forward to the release of this movie. I didn’t have a chance to see it right away but I heard a few mixed reviews that surprised me. After watching the movie I knew it was one hell of story, about Captain Kirk, about Spock and what they go through the Federation, something totally different. And Khan is the same Khan that was from the original movie, it was a well thought out storyline with some very crazy battle scenes. The story was well thought out and deep, and I like what they did with Khan and very well played. I don’t want to ruin the story but if you are a Trekkie or a fan of Scifi then you have to see this movie.

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn

Halo3FUD1

UNSC Cadet Thomas Lasky must conquer his inner fears and join forces with super-soldier John-117 to take down a massive faction of the Covenant.

Halo3FUD2

For any Halo fan this movie is a must, its about the cadets and how they train to be UNSC soldiers. You get the feel for the UNSC military and what these cadets go through, then all hell breaks loose and you finally see the Covenant, and the Master Chief. This movie did not disappoint, the Master Chief still remained as tough and big as he is, and the story line was perfect, and they brought in the big guys from the Covenant. An extremely well made SciFi movie with some excellent young acting, I do hope this isn’t the last one, I’m hoping for one more where the Master Chief plays a bigger role. Hell of a movie, not I’m going back to finishing Halo 4 which I have not done!

Review: Lockout

A man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.

What this movie lacks in special effects it makes up for in character, well at least Guy Pearce does, the guy is perfect for the role. Just the right combination of sarcastic and snazzy, he is the perfect tough guy lead role for this movie and they had the right type of crazies in it. The special effects were lacking significantly, the CG effects from the motorcycle chase to falling out of space were pretty. Pearce reveals a sort of endless reserve of cocky charm, a back pocketful of jokes for the violent situations in which he finds himself. He carrys the characters in his scene including Maggie Grace, the lead females. But take the action movie on its own propulsive merits, and it’s good scifi fun in a tidy package.

Review: Prometheus

A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

A quasi-prequel to Alien by Ridley Scott doesn’t answer all the question, but it’s redeemed by its haunting visual grandeur and compelling performances, especially Michael Fassbender as a fastidious android. I had the original Alien with Sigourney Weaver, guns blasting, Aliens vs. Humans scenario going through my mind, what I got instead was a scientific thriller, bringing a few things together as to the origins of the Alien as well as leaving you with a lot of questions. Ridley Scott really went beyond expectations with the effects, you really feel as if you are in Alien world, just discovering one aspect of the Engineers after another, I just kept thinking of when the Alien (The Monster) would pop out but it wasn’t about them. The story leaves you with more questions then answers and I think there might be a sequel based on the ending.

Space Battleship Yamato

I’m still waiting for this insane movie, its Star Trek/Star Wars on steriods. I remember watching the anime a long time back, but the movie looks even more amazing then the anime was. Now its even tempting me to get a model version of the Space Battleship Yamato which is about 56 cm in length, pretty big to sit on the mantle.

Google Space Expansion

GoogleStorage

When Gmail first came out we only had 100MB or 500MB with our emails, and sometimes you had to pay exuberant amounts for the upgrades. Google has spoiled us with their Gmail Services, I remember when it was launched years ago when they said you would never have to delete anything ever again, they were the first with 1 GB and just kept going up exponentially for a while and then they got to about 7 GB and still more then everyone else with the easiest email system to handle and most intuitive. Now they have really gone over the top and providing paid storage for huge amount of storage for a very low amount. Storage availability from Gmail has become so large that people have written lots of tools & scripts to make use it for online storage or back up, and now because of these numbers more scripts & tools will be developed. I wouldn’t mind paying $100 per year for 400 GB of storage, that’s a lot that can be stored or shared online.

Storage Upgrades:

  • 20 GB ($5.00 USD per year)
  • 80 GB ($20.00 USD per year)
  • 200 GB ($50.00 USD per year)
  • 400 GB ($100.00 USD per year)
  • 1 TB ($256.00 USD per year)
  • 2 TB ($512.00 USD per year)
  • 4 TB ($1,024.00 USD per year)
  • 8 TB ($2,048.00 USD per year)
  • 16 TB ($4,096.00 USD per year)

PANDORUM – HD Trailer

Pandorum is an interesting sci-fi thriller, the concept can be seen from this trailer and I do like these types of movies. There hasn’t been a lot of sci-fi thriller/horror in a while now so I’m looking forward to this movie. Getting the right combination for a good story line is tough these days with sci-fi movies, and I’m crossing my fingers for Pandorum and based on the trailer its off to a good start.

Torrent Peak

I always try to organize my downloads, and they do get organized once I have finished my downloads. And that lasts a maximum of a day or two, then things get messed up once again when I add to the download list. I have been downloading a lot of anime these days, and I always download the latest HD movies out there, no matter how old. Another issue I’m facing right now is my torrent uploads, I have to leave my torrents on to keep my ratio up, and it has reached the point where my hard drive has gotten filled without me noticing it. So I have a few porblems now, my files are all messed up and need reorganization, and now my main hard drive is filled up and it only has 7.95 GB left from 698 GB (750 GB Drive).

HD Movies I’m downloading:

  • Batman Begins 1080P
  • The Spiderwick Chronicles 720P
  • Be King Rewing 720P
  • Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade 720P
  • Indiana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark 720P
  • HULK 1080P
