Attack on Titan 2 was filled with a lot of information and opened a lot of doors of possibility. At 12 episodes, it must have been torture to wait years for the next installments so I’m glad I already have Season 3 waiting for me. One thing’s for sure, as the story gets deeper, it gets you more hooked to the series than ever.
I have always been curious why there has been a strong following for Funimation’s anime series Shingeki No […]
It promises to deliver a sweet and fun love story in the tone of Sophie Kinsella’s signature wit and humor. I’m looking forward to seeing this.

After HBO ended its epic series Game of Thrones after the eighth season, fans of the show have been dealing with a void in their life that they never knew existed until they didn’t have the George RR Martin adaptation to love and hate (for the final season, at least). Networks and streaming platforms are now jostling to fill this demand with adaptations of literary sagas and game series that have a grown a strong following over the years. Will His Dark Materials and The Witcher fill the gap?
There were three trailers this week that really grabbed our attention. Tom Cruise’s Top Gun: Maverick, Stephen King’s Creepshow 2019 Reboot and Taylor Swift’s Cats Live Action Movie. Lets see how they stack up.
All in all, Nisekoi Live Action did a great job in compressing all the materials from the manga and the anime in just 118 minutes and fun and laughter. The storytelling was fluid and simple and the chemistry among the cast members was also very solid. This is why Japanese high school movies are the best. So cute. So earnest. So over the top. I loved it.
Flawless CGI, a respectful treatment to the source material, a story that resonates to fans and non fans alike and a perfect cast makes for one entertaining movie and that’s pretty much the summary of Detective Pikachu. I would really love to see Ryan Reynolds reprise the role. The twist at the end was super cool, I’m telling you. I had so much fun. This is how you do a live action adaptation.
All in all, while the last half of Season 8 was shaky at best, Game of Thrones was able to come out with a passable ending. It wasn’t the epic conclusion that fans had their hearts set out on for a variety of reasons, but it at least made sense, and its an ending that fans can make peace with in the long run, just as Westeros did with their new ruler.
At the end of the day, no one can do a better job of ending the series that its author George RR Martin, even when there are better writers. Now, all that’s left is to actually wait for the books to see if they are any better, that is after GRRM makes time to write after consulting for the three GOT spin offs in the works. That’s where you get your do-over. Not HBO.
