LEGO’s Garmadon is Breaking Bad With His Own Solo Adventure!

28 May

LEGO® NINJAGO®: GARMADON #1 CoverNinjago’s greatest villain, Garmadon, now has a comic book! This self-titled work is a joint collaboration between Image Comics, Skybound and The Lego Company and the first two issues have everything to satisfy fans of the cartoon. There are linguring questions that needs answering.

The only thing really missing is a mini-fig to go with the release, and I suspect that’s being saved for the eventual trade paperback. This series answers nearly everything you want to know about this villain but are afraid to ask. Thankfully, readers don’t have to recall everything from the animated series to know where this series is headed.

Garmadon walked away from it all in season 10, March of the Oni and I’ve talked about the season in my look of that chapter. He once wanted to conquer all of Ninjago, and after defeating the greatest threat of them all, the Oni, I suspect the desire to control an entire world just isn’t good enough. He learned to be part of a greater whole. Ever since then, he’s uncertain about where his future lays. He’ll have to reevaluate his goals.

Ip Man The Awakening a Refresh to the Franchise

28 May

IP Man The AwakeningStreaming on Hi-Yah Network and Amazon Prime
Coming to Home Video June 21st
Preorder on Amazon USA

Ip Man The Awakening is a soft reboot of sorts. This film introduces a new actor, Miu Tse into the titular role, and it’s his martial arts prowess that’s in the spotlight. Sadly, Donnie Yen is only getting older, and it’s easy to understand why he won’t be reprising any physically demanding roles. What this movie offers is a look into another part of this Wing Chun master’s life.

The films produced by Raymond Wong make up the big four. The last of which was aptly titled Finale, and while that marked the end for Yen, I’m sure the producers had new ideas in mind on how to continue the franchise. I never considered these movies to be accurate looks into Ip’s life. There’s a lot to cover since he had quite the life. I enjoy these films as a look into moments which helped shape this man’s self worth.

Space Battleship Yamato Movie Marathon Begins This Morning!

28 May

Yamato 2199.jpgDuring the Memorial Day long weekend in the USA, Daikaiju TV has something for anime fans. This streaming network will begin an 18-hour Space Battleship Yamato movie marathon this morning (starting 7:00am ET). It’ll feature nearly every film available! From Space Battleship Yamato (1977) to Odyssey of the Celestial Ark (2014), that’s going to be a lot for fans to enjoy! 

The latter and A Voyage to Remember (2014) make up part of the reboot universe, and are compilations of the TV series Space Battleship Yamato 2199.

The crew of the Yamato represent more than the human spirit, and this weekend in America should not just be about one nation. To honour that will be tough for some, but for others, to know that humanity can stand united makes for a stronger message. 

And for those who can’t start this Yamato movie marathon this morning, fret not. It will repeat throughout Sunday, with Sunday Night at the Movies starting at a special time. On Monday will be a return to what this streaming network specialises in, a monster marathon feaaturing Godzilla and Gamera’s best films as they save Japan from destruction.

Krut: The Mythic Wings Puts the Legends and Lore of Southeast Asia on the Spotlight

26 May

Krut The Mythic Wings

Krut: The Mythic Wings is coming soon for gamers to take delight in! Not only is the artwork fantastic but also it takes inspiration from the legends and lore of Southeast Asia. To see the fusion of Indonesian, Cambodian and Thai beliefs (to name a few) makes up what I’m finding in this recently released trailer (see below).

There’s a lot to like if the trailer is any sign. Trying to identify the menagerie of creatures won’t be easy unless you know the legends, but they certainly demonstrate their ruthlessness in this hack-and-slash! Personally, I’m hoping the success will mean toys or a digital product line so I can have it grace my computer screen or wall. 

This a side-scrolling platformer from publisher Blowfish Studios, developers GoodJob Multimedia and Pixel Perfex, and producer RSU Horizon. A century-long battle will be rekindled on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, as well as PC and Mac via Steam, on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, as revealed in Indie Live Expo.
