Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Vol. 1
Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn
Anime DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Mobile Suit GundamFinally Gundam returns to its roots, and gives us old-skool Gundam fanboys something really meaty and interesting to chew on. After a 12-year hiatus of non-Universal Century stuff (let me be kind when I call it crap), we're finally back to the real thing, like with REAL PHYSICS IN SPACE, believable battles, and ...dare I say it ... characters that you might actually give a damn about!

Now, if that wasn't enough to plop your ass into the couch and watch this, the series is surrounded by some really incredible animation. I'm not talking your average TV-grade stuff; we're talking about setting a whole new standard for something looking excellent on a TV budget. Read More...

The Guyver (complete series)
The Guyver
(Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor)

Anime DVD Review by Laura Aira

The GuyverYou think you've seen violence and gore? Ha! Guyver makes the epic violence in other animes seem like an episode of the Teletubbies. Guyver is a Japanese anime based on a popular manga written by Yoshiki Takaya. It is also directed by Katsuhito Akiyama who has directed a span of popular anime series like Thundercats, Bubblegum Crisis and Magical Project S.

Guyver is about a young high school boy named Sho Fugamachi who discovers the Guyver unit near a creek. Upon touching it, Sho's body is immediately overtaken and transformed by the Guyver unit. He then possesses god-like abilities and fighting skills which over time he comes to master. Read More...

Asian Cinema DVD Review by Brian Cirulnick

Asian CinemaIf you live in a major metropolitan area, chances are there's some area in your city referred to as "Chinatown". And chances are, somewhere in Chinatown, there's a theatre or video store that runs nothing but Hong Kong action flicks -- the kind that come with multiple languages of subtitle, and feature the weirdest plots of all time.

Funimation has remastered and released some incredible Hong Kong martial arts films from the vaults of the Shaw Brothers (and if you don't know who Sir Run Run Shaw is, shame on you!). Yes, these are the cheezy, wire-kung-fu films from the 70's you remember as a kid. They are as cheezy as a Spanish soap-opera, and yet are also some of the most innovative films in terms of technique and have inspired a slew of Hollywood directors (Quentin Tarantino, the Cohen brothers, and the Wachowski brothers to name a few).

Mysterious Cities of Gold (DELUXE EDITION)
Mysterious Cities of Gold
Animation DVD Review by Laurence Sufrin

Mysterious Cities of Gold In 1982, DiC Entertainment was flying high on the success of Inspector Gadget. Not ones to rest on their laurels, they then created one of the most ambitious projects ever in the history of an animated series on TV, a historical adventure series on the scale of Indiana Jones with a vast array of characters and a complex plotline.

It is 1532 and Esteban, a Spanish orphan, is on a quest to find his father. He joins a party of Spaniards as they search for one of The Seven Cities of Gold in The New World. Zia, an Incan girl, and Tao, the last descendant of the sunken empire of Hiva, help Estaban on his search. Read More...
