It’s Not Ip Man’s Finale, but the Grandmaster of all Collections!

24 Mar

IP MAN: THE GRANDMASTER 4-MOVIE COLLECTION
Release Date: April 7th

Wilson Yip’s work in the fictional biography of Ip Man is getting a box set! Not only will it feature all four films (previously released as separate films by Well Go USA) featuring Donnie Yen in the titular role, but also we’ll be getting the much needed featurettes that should help fill in the gaps that the cinematic treatment doesn’t touch on.

In the fourth film, which I reviewed a few months ago here, Ip Man lands in San Francisco to help ease tensions between the local Kung Fu masters and an up and coming talent, Bruce Lee. However, there’s more than just tensions between keeping Chinatown in peace. There’s problems with other locals; when the military gets involved, the xenophobic tensions can almost speak for the current situation going on presently between the White House, China and COVID-19.

Mind Mgmt Comic Fans Are Kickstarting the Game to Gear!

14 Mar

MIND MGMT: The Psychic Espionage “Game” is doing very well in its first week since launching on Kickstarter. It is billed as a tense, paranoia-fueled game of deduction and second-guessing. It’s based on the NY Times Best Selling series from Matt Kindt, and it’s published by Dark Horse Comics. This board game is being published by Vancouver, BC based operation Off the Page Games.

After the product has been sent out to Kickstarter backers, it’s very likely to appear in select games stores near you.

The story is about Meru who has to deal with other strangeness in the likes of X-Files. Instead of aliens and ghosts, she’s dealing with spies, rogue agents and psy-ops. In what she finds, the trouble she gets in requires the help of others.

Stay Safe Seattle. Emerald City Comic Con Postponed!

6 Mar

Emerald City Comic ConEmerald City Comic Con wants to make sure attendees stay safe and has finally announced it is postponed. With news of more people being infected by the coronavirus and Seattle perhaps being a hotbed (being part of a major flight route is technically bad), this massive convention will refund everyone who bought tickets.

People who have booked a hotel through the convention’s website are advised to phone them to cancel and don’t wait. Not every accommodation will do this automatically. They have records to see how you’ve booked and edit. Most airlines in affected thoroughfares are either automatically cancelling or will nix the usual fee in light of the global situation.
