    Games from the old days you'd want to see remade/updated.

    The first two games of the Suikoden series, Ultima 4-6, and most of the Might and Magic series. May needs lots of updates to any of those games, but they were my favorites.

    The Big Picture: The Boot, Part One

    First, I recommend searching for the Osamu Tezuka version of "Metropolis". I got to see both the silent movie and the anime at a double showing several years ago. I would think that would be your reboot. As for Voltron, only if they did an update of Go Lion (the show that Voltron was based...

    Escape to the Movies: G.I. Joe: Retaliation

    I suspect that the reason why Dwayne Johnson played Roadblock instead of "The Rock" may have more to do with the makers of this movie not wanting anything to do with the lawyers at the WWE than with wanting to add more juice to this movie. Sergeant Slaughter was an established wrestler when he...

    Escape to the Movies: Wreck-It Ralph

    Gee, I may actually have to go to a movie theater for the first time in years. This movie looks to be a good one.

    Escape to the Movies: Lawless

    I might be interested in seeing Frank and Robot as a rental. I doubt that it would play in my area. And Lawless also might get a rental from me, but that is all, as I do not go to that many movies.

    Your most unlucky purchase

    My worst purchase of a video game was Fester's Quest for the NES. Worst game ever. My unluckiest purchases of hardware were the last two items that I bought from UBid. The first was for a refurbished flat-panel video monitor for my (then) desktop computer. Monitor's power supply went out...

    Escape to the Movies: Rock of Ages

    Well, at least I have a birthday party to attend. That, and I have some anime on my computer that I still need to watch. And the money that I will not use to watch this "movie" might end up going to buying "Trigun: Badlands Rumble". Winners all around.

    The Big Picture: Junk Drawer Rises

    So Zangeif gets to be treated as a "bad guy". I'd consider him more of a product of his times rather than he being a "bad guy". Oh, and I've heard more controversy over whether to call him Dr. Robotnik or Dr. Eggman.

    Gorillaz is Over

    It's too bad that the Gorillaz are no more. Now if only Nickleback would go away as well... just kidding...

    The Big Picture: Hercules Part One

    Well, that was certainly amusing. And the robots are better than anything done by Michael Bay.

    The Big Picture: Mutants and Masses

    And I was so looking forward to the DVD release of "Salute Your Shorts", with Michael Bay's commentary about why the series was the high-water mark of Canada's dominance of children's TV production. Oh well. Now he gets to wreck the Turtles. Not that I cared for them anyways. I stopped...

    The Big Picture: Found in Translation

    I looked at the Wikipedia entry for Zyuranger (the show that MMPR was based off of), and it featured four men and one woman. Hence why Yellow did not have a skirt. I know that the Japanese version has been fansubbed through TV Nihon. I'll have to give it a try.

    The Big Picture: Found in Translation

    I'll be interested in this release. I remember watching SPC back in the day, and I really enjoyed it. And being able to see all of the episodes (not just the ones that made it to air) will be even better. I also like that Discotek is releasing the series subbed as I tend to prefer to watch...

    Escape to the Movies: John Carter

    I think I'll stick with the books. That just means that I will have to take a trip to my local library soon. (And for the cost of a movie I can get my library card for an entire year.)

    Perfect Blue: sub or dub?

    I was just pointing out a famously bad dub of a good anime show. For the record, I own the entire run of Card Captor Sakura. As for Perfect Blue, I did watch it (courtesy of my local video store That's Rentertainment). I liked it. Now all I have to do is find the time to watch Paprika...
