The Mitchells VS The Machines Movie Review

The Mitchells VS The Machines is the #1 movie on Netflix today. I watched it on a whim this evening all by myself as I waited for my fiance to get off work. I went into the movie completely blind, knowing nothing about it at all. Within the first three minutes I was literally laughing out loud. I almost NEVER laugh when watching TV – I cry easy watching TV – and The Mitchells VS The Machines had me shed a few tears too before all was over.

It’s a movie with a lot of heart. The characters feel very real. Although flawed as the family might be, they have a very human like quality. It’s also very relateable due to the topics it includes. No, not robot apocalypses, but the themes of family, and growing up and fear of failure and taking risks and learning to let go, and let your children chart their own course. read more

Is There Such A Thing As English Dubbed Korean Dramas KDrama?

The answer is yes. I just watched My Holo Love on Netflix. Hulu also has a lot of subbed and dubbed series that are worth considering. I am in the hospital and stuck with just the smallest iPad so I was checking subtitles to see if I could enlarge them any. That’s when I noticed Audio was listed in about eight different languages. No way I thought to myself as I switched to English audio and turned off the subtitles. It’s not perfect, no but when youre stuck on a small screen its nice. What’s wrong with it? The acting and casting is poor. At least in the one I watched Holo Love. I didn’t like the voice of the main male character in English at all. Not as good as the Korean original actors performances. I also don’t know if it’s been white washed – I didn’t watch the credits – but if so that’s another problem, hiring white actors to perform Asian roles. I dunno if that’s true though but worth pointing out that it’s a possibility. read more

Why DVDs and Blu-Ray Discs Are Still Important In 2020 And Beyond

I admit I stopped buying DVDs and Blu-rays when Crunchyroll entered the scene.

I recall back in the 90s, spending HUNDREDS of dollars on VHS boxsets of anime. Does anyone remember Suncoast Video? I’d go there all the time on birthdays with money from my grandparents or friends and family and buy anime box sets. I also would get catalogs in the mail from a company… I think it was called Funco? They sold anime by mail. I can’t remember if that was their name – but yep I’d order a TON of anime – VHS – through them. read more

Monthly Girl’s Nozaki-Kun Anime Review

I just finished watching all 12 episodes of Monthly Girl’s Nozaki-Kun. I can’t remember who recommended that I watch this, a year or more ago, and I just now got around to it.

My overall feeling is it’s a cute and short kind of mindless fun comedy anime, with a little bit of romance that never ever really ever goes anywhere.

It is left with a little bit of an open ending. This post might have spoilers.

Here’s a quick spoiler free score card before I dive into the reasons for my score. read more
