Super Recaps: Dragon Ball Z (Episode 203)

Welcome back to my in depth look at the best season of Dragon Ball Z!  Today’s episode is called… Rescue Videl.  Huh.  I was kinda hoping they’d avoid this annoying cliché.  Oh well, maybe it won’t be that bad.  Let’s find out!!

The episode begins with Gohan flying to school dressed as Saiyaman.  Along the way though, Videl sees him while flying her sci-fi plane, and refuses to leave him be.  Because he’s being followed, he can’t land at school and has to find some way to lose her.

Super Recaps: Dragon Ball Z (Episode 202)

So far, Gohan has had to fight bank robbers, dangerous drivers, and gravity, not to mention all the galaxy destroying tyrants he’s faced in his past.  Still, does any of this prepare him for his toughest challenge yet!?  Gohan’s about to dive head first into the dating pool, and hopefully he doesn’t get eaten alive in the process!

The episode begins with Gohan checking himself out in the mirror and trying to come up with badass lines.

“You talkin’ to me?  Are YOU talkin’ to me?”     “Gohan!  Dinner’s ready!  And Taxi Driver is really played out!”     “…thanks ma.”

Living on Netflix: Red State

RS0

Kevin Smith is a director that I’ve defend as damn good if not always excellent.  Movies like Clerks and Dogma are still original and entertaining, while Clerks 2 is a straight up classic in my book.  That said I’ve kinda stepped back in recent years and avoided stuff like Cop Out and Red State which seemed to indicate a change in the once great film maker.  Well it’s time to fix that!  In celebration of the release of his latest film Tusk, I’m gonna take a look at his last movie Red State.  It seems appropriate considering that  both appear to be quite similar in tone and even has the same actor playing the bad guy in both films.  Is this movie gonna be an auteur director proving himself outside of his comfort zone, or yet another step in his continued slide into irrelevance?  Only one way to find out, and that’s to keep on reading!!

Super Recaps: Dragon Ball Z (Episode 201)

It’s time to look at another episode of Dragon Ball Z’s seventh season!  Will Gohan finally start fitting in at school, or will his secrets be exposed, forcing him to be an outcast because… he’s super strong and can fly.  Wait, why are those bad things?  Anyway, let’s get started!

The episode begins with Gohan arriving at Bulma’s place, still riding the Nimbus.  Did he forget how to fly or something?  YAMCHA can fly, why can’t he!?  Anyway, he goes inside and finds Bluba doing something very naughty.

I’m guessing this isn't the version that aired on Toonami.

Super Recaps: Sailor Moon Crystal (Episode 6)

We’re back once again to take a look at Sailor Moon Crystal!  Will we finally get introduced to Sailor Other Blonde?  Probably not, considering this episode is called “Tuxedo Mask.”  Either way, let’s see what crazy adventure the Scouts find themselves in this time!

This episode picks up right where the last one left off with Usagi becoming the OFFICIAL leader of the Scouts, as well as getting a new weapon to fight against the forces of darkness!

What, that’s it? It’s not the Lunar Baton, or The Diana Spear? Just… THE MOON STICK!?!?

Super Recaps: Dragon Ball Z (Episode 200)

Dragon Ball Z is probably in my top three anime of all time, yet my favorite season is the one that departs the most drastically from the rest of the show.  Yes, to all of you DBZ fans out there, my favorite is season 7 where Gohan’s in high school, finds love, and becomes a badass super hero.  Because I felt the need to rewatch this, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and write down all my random thoughts while watching.  Let’s begin with episode 200 (we’re skipping over Goku in the dead man tournament) entitled Gohan Goes to High School!

The episode starts with a recap of the end of the Cell Saga where ghost dad helps Gohan fire the last Kamehameha.

Living on Netflix: Filth

F0

You know, I don’t think people give James McAvoy enough credit.  Sure he’s gotten a lot of critical success through the X-Men movies, but take a look through his filmography and you’ll see some serious acting chops.  By far his most extreme character to date is the unhinged Edinburgh detective Bruce Robertson in this adaptation of the 1998 novel of the same name.  Does Filth showcase McAvoy’s true acting prowess as well as the depths he’s willing to go, or is it a huge misstep for an actor in the prime of his career trying to prove himself by taking on the role of an unlikable prick?  There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to keep reading!
