Iron Man. I was prepared for an awful film, but it was surprisingly good.

Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society


Basically a continuation of the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex anime series, and plays out like an extended episode really, continuing two years on from the 2nd series.


Beautifully animated (using a mix of cell-shaded and 3D computer and calssic cell animation), good storyline and strong performances from the English voice cast.

But it nabs a Hell of a lot from the original manga comics... so loses a bit of kudos there (although it could be seen as "homage"); but this can be seen as both good and bad. Good because those who've read all through the manga will enjoy seeing these bits put in; bad because these same fans might want something a bit more original.


So with a little bit of homage frais in there, I give it 8/10 (but a high 8!)

Again, I seem to have also acquired the BGC RPG of it, but have no one else who appreciates the anime genre Very Happy .

People don't have to even like or know about the anime to be captivated by the mythology of GITS. It's an amazing world- very scary! Hacking that occurs not on your computer... but in your head! pale

I didn't know there was a RPG of it!




Anyways, last movie I watched.


Invasion of the Astro Monsters (aka Kaijű Daisenso) on VHS! Featuring excellent acting from Nick Adams, I loved this movie growing up: Godzilla, Rodan, King Ghidora! Awesome Stuff! Now dated, it's one of these movies you just have to shrug and enjoy it for what it is.

8/10.

Doomsday - great action - lots of blood & gore - if you like Mad Max stuff then you'll like this - inbetween Mad Max & Dog Soldiers. 8/10 Smile

GITS is good. Been a while since I watched any of them. Appleseed is also nice.

I've only seen the Appleseed remakethat was done a few years ago, although I remember seeing at least the start of the original film back when Sci-Fi actually showed good programmes like anime, late at night, but I fell a sleep and missed it Laughing



Last film I watched- Godzilla (1998).

I maintain that this is a fine piece of monster cinema- I loved it 10 years ago when it captured my early-teen imagination and I still love it now!


8/10, without a doubt.
