The awesome clash of Devilman vs. Jinmen.. all 2:54 seconds of it. Don't sneeze or you'll miss the epic-ness of this encounter. Watch an anorexic Akira Fudo go to work.
...it's socially acceptable to be a dick and if you can be a dick then you can walk around with a shotgun and a cherry looking helmet while screaming at frightened strangers to say your name.
A tribute to the worst older brother a dude could have.
Normally Japanese trailers make things better but not this time. They tried to make it work but in the process of showing more it showed how terrible it actually is. In this case less is more and wow, way to cast the perfect guy to play Son Goku. Wow, such charisma. That was sarcasm. No seriously.
In my mind I see Wanderlei Silva stomping the crap out of everyone involved. I'm funny that way.
Oh well use this beauty to pacify you. What's that you say? It's already out? While I have my doubts still about it (seriously the guy calls himself McG) this one movie below is something I have no doubts over.
Hopefully some manufacturer of 1/6 out there will make a nice version of this Jason and his trusty utility belt (click on to watch or go to the YT page and watch it in sexy HD).
The best game you'll never play (I guess a PS3 game of Devilman would actually look better than this).
Yes things are bad.
Conversion rates could be better (if you buy imports like me then you know how big a deal that is) but at least gas is cheaper right? Well I found this nifty little widget and well it could come in handy (since it is a cyclical thing it will go up again).. Gas in my area is 2.02 for Super.
What are you paying for your gas?
Great news for me. Guess what came out on the 21st of this month? Why it's the long overdue Hokuto No Ken movie dvd from 1986. A DVD of it has existed but in HK DVD form. Which wasn't very good quality but hey it was cheap and it could play on any DVD player. That or you had an old Streamline VHS tape of the movie with the altered defeated Kenshiro ending.
Still that movie resonates very passionately among fans as it was one of the first things they probably remember seeing when non-American syndicated anime came over to the US way back in the day (along with Ninja Scroll, Vampire Hunter D and so on). Some got introduced to the genre because of it so it's fondly remembered (for the curious I got into it via the action figures when years ago Tendou introduced me to the figures, then the comic when he said the immortal words "I think you'll like it".)
So now after all of these years it's out on DVD in its remastered glory. While this movie is uber busy trying to cram nine books into it I can say that the animation still holds up and I still get pumped watching Raoh kick the crap out of people to the tune of Heart of Madness.
This one above all others hurts me the most. As you know we here at Henshinhobby (you know, the guys that decided to take 5 month break) hold the Hokuto No Ken series very highly. In fact I can say with 100% confidence that if that series were to not exist then there would be no Henshinhobby (which would make some people happy but Ha ha!).
So we love it that much is obvious. Way back in the day when I had to buy these little things called VHS tapes I went into some probably out of business store and purchased the Live Action adaption to Fist of the North Star movie.
It was one of the most horrific things I've ever seen. Unlike the Devilman movie this one had actual filmmaking talent behind it. You have a group of guys who worked in several capacities in the Hellraiser series (at least the first two kicked ass) and of course the most successful of that Hellraiser bunch Christopher Young who composed tons of stuff including Spider-Man 3.
It could have been a decent flick but it wasn’t. In fact it’s fucking terrible and at times embarrassing. Oddly enough there is a cult following for this movie that tends to say that “it’s ok for an action flick”. Other than suggesting to them to watch more action flicks I’m at a loss but whatever, I come to bury this movie not the people who dig it.
I stick behind what I said earlier about Devilman being the worse (I’ve seen Kekko Kamen but that had the budget of a can of soup and it had tits so it gets a pass). But as I stated in the beginning this one hurt the most because I love this franchise the most. Believe me when I tell you I can write a disgustingly large amount about why this movie doesn’t work but I won’t because I don’t want to miss my train.
So take a gander below and absorb the trailer.
Because the impending Dragonball live action movie can't be good and because kids apparently can't be treated to a good movie unless some dorky kid wizard is involved I wanted to go in my way back machine and torture you with horrible anime to live action flicks from years past.
I'll probably start off with the single worst anime to live action movie I can think off. No it's not the live action Fist of the North Star with Gary Daniels. While that and the other Fist of the North Star live action movies (Korea, Taiwan I'm looking at you) are really dreadfull this one takes the cake.
I bring you Devilman from 2004. Now I love Devilman in all his incarnations. I love Devilman Lady (Manga yes Anime no), I fucking LOVE Violence Jack, Devilman: AMON, the yellow shirt delinquent bastard from the early TV series... I'm a huge fan. Then this came out. Now I know manga/anime transitions into live action don't normally turn out well. My expectations are low and a subject like Devilman with it's brutality will turn people off but man this movie is horrible. The effects are terrible, Devilman's fully rendered visage looks like it MAY give the PS2 a run for it's money effects wise, Satan sorta kinda looks like Satan and Seline isn't topless (the same can be said for Satan if you think about it). There is a laundry list of issues that this movie has that it would take me a long time to fully breakdown and analyze this movie but I won't because I have a life (at least that's what my toys tell me).
Here is the trailer. The telecast of Bob Sapp commentating on the apocalypse should immediately tell you how fubar'd this whole movie was.
