‘Armageddon America’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Dina Meyer, Diane Ladd, AnnaLynne McCord, Gary Heavin, Mike Norris, Marshall R. Teague, India Eisley, Aliya Astaphan, Rich Bentz, Jonny Cruz, Chuck Huber, Giovannie Cruz, Spencer Neville, Carey Scott, Alex Jones | Written by Gary Heavin | Directed by Mike Norris

Originally entitled AmeriGeddon, Armageddon America is the second collaboration between director, and son of action superstar Chuck Norris, Mike Norris and writer/producer and self-made millionaire, Gary Heavin – who seems to be on a mission to create films that promote “all-American” Christian values, with an underlying “all-American” gung-ho action movie aethestic.

I’ll be honest I was expecting a Christian-themed movie when I popped the Armageddon America DVD in, instead we’ve got a whole new breed of movie here – replacing Christian propaganda with jingoistic, right-wing, anti-government propaganda! The film offers a, thankfully, fictional depiction of a future where a globalist terrorist organization, aligned with the United Nations, works to

Mindy Newell: The Adventure Will Continue

  • Comicmix
I don’t know about you, but I keep forgetting to watch Star Trek: Discovery.

I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t wait for each episode of Star Trek Continues.

As I’m sure you know, CBS, through the complicated Hollywood system of it’s mine, it’s mine!, owns the television rights to Trek and in its infinite wisdom stupidity decided to launch Discovery on their streaming network. Which you have to pay for.

Star Trek Continues, a continuation of the five-year mission of the Constellation class starship USS Enterprise Ncc-1701, captained by James Tiberius Kirk, is a love-fast to the original series. It is available for free on YouTube and its own website.

Stc was co-produced by the non-profit charity Trek Continues, Inc., Dracogen, Far From Home LLC and Farragut Films, and was partially funded by Kickstarter, in an incredibly successful campaign of crowd sourcing.

Star Trek Continues Comes to a Classy Conclusion

  • Cinelinx
The best fan-made web-series has come to an end. To Boldly Go: Part 2 was released this week and it not only concludes the show in style, it also brings the 5-year mission of the Starship enterprise to a solid, entertaining end.

It was a bittersweet moment watching the final episode of Star Trek Continues. On one had, it was great to see this excellent series get wrapped up so well, but it was also sad to realize that there won’t be any further episodes. The purpose of the show was bridge the gap between the end of the classic 1966-69 TV series (“Turnabout Intruder” was the final original series episode) and big screen cinematic adventures, which it does very well. It was a great ride, while it lasted.

Vic Mignogna, the executive producer/writer, who portrays Captain Kirk on the show, explains what he wanted to accomplish with this last episode.

Star Trek Continues Episode 10: To Boldly Go

  • Cinelinx
Part one of the final episode for the Web’s finest fan-made series came out this week, and as usual, it does not disappoint. As Star Trek Continues warps to its conclusion, long-time Trek fans are treated to a wonderful trip back to the very beginning of the classic series.

The latest episode of Stc, “To Boldly Go” (a homage to the famous opening narrative to Classic Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation) is a fun trip into the Trek universe that pays homage to “Where No Man Has Gone Before”, the original 1966 pilot episode for Star Trek. (Okay, that was actually the second pilot, the first being “The Cage”, starring Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Pike, but I digress.) It shows the fidelity and affection that the makers of this show have for the source material; which is why they chose to end their series that way Star Trek began.

‘The Boy and the Beast’ DVD Review

  • Nerdly
Features the voices of: Randy E. Aguebor, Bryn Apprill, Kumiko Asô, Morgan Berry, Jessica Cavanagh, Luci Christian, Lily Franky, Josh Grelle, Sean Hennigan, Suzu Hirose, Chuck Huber, Ivan Jasso, Brittney Karbowski, Haru Kuroki, Mamoru Miyano | Written and Directed by Mamoru Hosoda

If you’ve ever been told to stop watching cartoons because they are for kids, this is something to be ignored. Hell, the fact that many anime is use themes not suitable for kids is proof of this. Mamoru Hosoda’s The Boy and The Beast is a good example of just why animation should never be ignored, and also unforgettably good.

The Boy and the Beast is the story of a young boy living on the streets. One day he stumbles into a magical world of beasts, and meets Kumatetsu, a warrior who is looking to become the leader of the animals. The only problem is, he needs

Star Trek Continues Episode 9: What Ships Are For

  • Cinelinx
The best fan-made web-series, Star Trek Continues, returns with a new episode. Like the original Star Trek show it’s based on, it doesn’t shy away from controversial issues. Does the latest episode “What Ships Are For” maintain the series’ quality?

“What Ships Are For” is the ninth of a planned 11 episodes of this excellent show, and it’s too bad it will be coming to an end soon because it’s far and away the finest fan-made web show in production. What makes it so good is its fidelity to the classic 1966-1969 Star Trek TV series, which worked as a metaphor for socio-cultural issues of the day. (Something missing from the recent Jj Abrams films). Star Trek Continues also dives into a hot-button issue by tacking the subject of refugees.

In this episode, the crew of the Enterprise answer an Sos and find a society that is literally color blind,

Star Trek Continues Returns With Another Superb Episode

  • Cinelinx
For fans of classic Star Trek who want to see quality stories done in the spirt of the original series, you have a treat this week. The consistently excellent web series Star Trek Continues has put out its eighth episode, “Still Treads the Shadow”, and as usual, it does not disappoint.

For those who’ve never seen the multi-award winning Star Trek Continues, don’t dismiss it as “just” a fan-made web show. That does the series an injustice. It’s more than that. As someone whose been a Star Trek fan for over 40 years, and grew up with William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and the rest of the original crew of the USS Enterprise, I never ceased to be amazed by how well this show captures the essence of the great show I adored in my childhood. It’s a terrific homage, made by people who love the original Star Trek.

Star Trek Continues: A Great Web Series and a Great Homage

  • Cinelinx
With the debut today of the sixth episode of the excellent web series Star Trek Continues, Cinelinx looks at one of the most outstanding fan-fiction projects being produced today, as it reaches its third year. This show is not only a superb tribute to the original Star Trek, it’s a well-made and entertaining series in its own right.

Any fan of the original Star Trek TV series should enjoy this impressive follow-up, which continues the Five Year Mission of the USS Enterprise. It picks up after the last episode of the original show “Turnabout Intruder” (The final scene of which is recreated in a short video vignette that precedes the series) and chronicles the 4th year of Captain Kirk and his crew going where no man has gone before.

The creative minds behind Star Trek Continues have been putting out original episodes online since May of 2013. The latest release

Running Time: 625 minutes

Certificate: PG

It’s been a long and winding road for the characters of Dragon Ball Z, but this is the final season. Dragon Ball Z is a show that I first approached with resistance, unwilling to accept that 5+ hour long fights could be anything but repetitive and dull. But it has gradually become more hospitable, if only for the fact that the show is demonstrably addictive. Set aside the fact that reviewing anime is one of the things I do for the site, this show would have sunk its claws into me and refused to let go no matter what. This final season

Dragon Ball Z Season 8 DVD Review

Creator: Akira Toriyama

Starring: Masako Nozawa, Sean Schemmel, Daisuke Gouri, Stephanie Nadolny, Naoko Watanabe, Eric Vale, Miki Itou, Christopher R. Sabat, Ryo Horikawa, Dameon Clarke, Takeshi Kusao, Kyle Hebert, Toshio Furukawa, Sonny Strait, Jeremy Inman, Chuck Huber, Mike McFarland, Tiffany Volmer, Cynthia Cranz,

Running Time: 625 minutes

Certificate: PG

Picking up where Season 7 left off, Season 8 really should begin to crack under the pressure of continuing a fairly simplistic series for so long. In actual fact, this is one of the best seasons the show has to offer thanks to some amazing character development, interesting and meaningful fight sequences, and even sections of heartfelt emotion. It all begins with the regular gang of heroes travelling to take on the evil wizard Babidi, son of Bibidi, and yes there is also a Buu. Babidi wishes to awaken the ultimate fighter, Buu, in order to take over the word.

Dragon Ball Z Season 7 DVD Review

Running Time: 625 minutes

Certificate: PG

Dragon Ball Season 7 is one of those points in a long running anime that can be seen as an easy ‘jumping-in’ point. Whereas the last two seasons required lengthy mythology and background knowledge to receive much of the enjoyment, this season will welcome newcomers and reward dedicated fans alike. Season 6 was an incredibly long tournament based season, with much of the action focused around a single fight. Season 7 has a lot of tournaments to get through too, but it also gives a wide range of fights and competitors, as well as supplying us with some heartfelt character moments and exciting new storylines and characters.

Running Time: 650 minutes

Dragon Ball Z Season 5 really grabbed my attention in terms of the complicated mythology it had to offer, as well as a wide range of interesting characters. By leaving that Season on a cliffhanger, I eagerly awaited a second bout with the long running anime. At the end of Season 5 the alien/android Cell had reached his final form, and had challenged the world’s fighters to a fighting tournament which would dictate the fate of our planet.

That’s right I’m afraid, this is a tournament based season, which means it’s lacking on plot but high on action, a little too high to be honest.

So many anime, so little time. With all the Bleach, Naruto, Pokemon, and other great series to be watching a few, no matter how important or popular, are bound to fall by the wayside. For me, that series is Dragon Ball and its sequel Dragon Ball Z. My only exposure to the world of Dragon Ball are a few memes circling the net and the film Dragonball Evolution, which I’m sure is a grand representation of what to expect? No? Fine, I guess I’ll give the series a go.

But can someone really jump into the series five seasons in? This isn’t like House or some other procedural show. The world of Dragon Ball,

Dragon Age: Dawn Of The Seeker DVD Review

Director: Fumihiko Sori

Starring: Colleen Clinkenbeard, Christopher Sabat, Brina Palencia, J. Michael Tatum, John Swasey, Chuck Huber

Running time: 85 minutes

Certificate: 15

Dragon Age: Dawn Of The Seeker is an animated film based on the popular RPG video games. I’ve never played the games, but I am a big fan of rival RPGs such as The Elder Scrolls series. I’m not exactly adverse to swords, sorcery, and dragons. Dargon Age: Dawn Of The Seeker takes place in your typical fantasy world and begins with what seems to be a religious rite, in which dragon’s blood is fed to a young girl. The girl is soon rescued by a group of knights known as Seekers. One of these Seekers is Cassandra, who is beautiful and skilled but also quite rash and violent. She soon uncovers a plot that is attempting to overthrow the Chantry of Andraste.

The film is

AniMania: Soul Eater

“A sound soul dwells within a sound mind, and a sound body…”

Or so Laura Bailey, the voice of Maka, tells us at the beginning of each episode of Soul Eater. While she doesn’t give us any details about the percentages of recommended daily allowances, we can tell you that Soul Eater, the latest hit series from Funimation, is 100% awesome.

If you’ve been to an anime convention in the last year or so, chances are you’ve already witnessed the phenomenon that is Soul Eater. Starting its tour of our shores as a manga serialized in Yen Press, the series went on to be collected into volumes, giving U.S. fans a taste of what the process is normally like in Japan as a title gains popularity. It exploded onto the con scene, with hundreds of cosplayers taking part in some of the biggest photo shoots I’ve ever seen.
