Poppy Hill + Webcomic Reality Show

This is a great web reality show with webcomic artists as the cast, highly applicable to all you artists here :).

Also saw The House on Poppy Hill tonight. Much better than Goro Miyazaki's first movie. I'm still digesting it but I'll have a review up sometime soon.

Wolf Children Review Coming Soon

I saw the US premiere of Wolf Children on Saturday. It's the third film by the creator of Summer Wars and Girl Who Leapt Through Time. I'll have a review shortly. Spoiler: It's a charming and worthy third film!

I'm seeing the premiere of Ghibli's House on Poppy Hill this coming weekend.

I'm Gonna Wreck It

Wreck It Ralph is now available to rent/buy. If you haven't seen it yet, watch it ASAP, one of the best movies of the year.

WiR = (Brave - Oscar)^Infinity & Beyond

Plus, Kyle Hebert, friend of theO and voice actor extraordinaire makes a small cameo in the beginning as Ryu.
