  • DeCarlo Rules: @Tuxedo Mark - Well, they came out in comic shops, but I guess that doesn't help you. If you've got a regular bookstore (or supermarket) somewhere nearby, they should have the digest, anyway.

I finished The Colony Season 3 and am 70% of the way through Cloak and Dagger.  It has been very good so far, much better than I was expecting.

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (saw it through downloads, watching it on DVD now)


One of my all-time favorites, which I'm planning on watching again as soon as I can find the time. I was only a so-so fan of Mamoru Oshii's 1990s film version, but really loved Kenji Kamiyama's SAC television series. For some reason the 2nd season ("2nd Gig") is out-of-print on DVD, and really expensive if you can find the complete collection on DVD (plus you have to avoid the Anchor Bay release, which according to all reviews, looks terrible). Hoping somebody will rectify that situation soon. Not sure why, as the first season is easily get-able at a reasonable price.

Thanks for letting me know. I just finished season 1 of SAC yesterday. I was thinking of ordering 2nd Gig but not if they're that expensive. I guess I'll rewatch the live-action movie (saw it in theaters, haven't watched the Blu-ray yet) and order The Individual Eleven (the compilation movie of 2nd Gig), Solid State Society, the original film, and the sequel on Blu-ray (the Blu-ray of Innocence supposedly contains at least one of the two English dubs made with the SAC cast, probably the American dub).
Then, after that, I'll get the new OVAs or TV specials or whatever they are (I already have The New Movie, which takes place after all of those).

ARISE, which looks like a prequel to SAC but is actually more of a reboot. I want to watch ARISE, but I just hate the way that they're milking it to make the fans pay through the nose. Even though ARISE is only 10 episodes in it's entirety, there's no complete collection. You have to buy what they call "Borders". What is meant by that is that out of the 10 episodes, 2 half-hour episodes put together make up a complete story, which is called "Border 1", "Border 2", etc. for a total of 5 borders. You can buy a "box set" (114 minutes) of ARISE Borders 1 & 2 (or 3 & 4) for about $25 each.

Unfortunately, there's no complete set sold (even though there are only 10 episodes). So be prepared to buy them as "Borders".... Episodes 1 & 2 equals "Border 1", which is a complete story of two half-hour episodes. You can get a box set of either Borders 1 & 2, or Borders 3 & 4, but then you still need to buy Border 5 separately (which is more or less a prequel setting up "The New Movie"). So that's at least 4 individual items (or possibly 6) you have to purchase to get the entire series, and it's going to cost you somewhere in the neighborhood of $80.

I've resisted it on the grounds that they're blatantly bilking the fans who "gotta have it", and am holding out a few years until it appears as one of those S.A.V.E. re-releases or something as a complete set.

Mega Monster Battle: ULTRA GALAXY  - The best superhero movie I've ever seen...

GODZILLA: Planet of the Monsters - Brand new feature-length anime movie. This is a top-quality animated film. They spared no expense. Makes both the recent American (Legendary Pictures) film AND Toho's Shin Godzilla movie (both of which weren't bad) look a little shabby by comparison. This was an ebay purchase (I think it's a Malaysia/Singapore import), but it's both English-subtitled AND English-dubbed, and the dubbing is top-notch, too. I was a little worried about what to expect, since Toho has resisted going the anime route for decades, but the results are very satisfying. There's a sequel anime film to this that I purchased at the same time (haven't watched it as yet).

EDIT:
GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle - Sequel to the above. These movies are an interesting blend of CGI and traditional cel animation, with the results (IMO) having the "best of both worlds". It's quite a departure for the Godzilla franchise, in that the premise is that the remnants of humanity (together with the remnants of two friendly humanoid alien races) fled from Earth shortly after the end of the 21st Century in a giant space ark, when the long-running war of humans against daikaiju (giant monsters) had gone so badly that a remaining small group of humans chose to abandon the planet in hopes of finding another world to colonize. Twenty years later, the would-be colonists realized that finding another habitable planet wasn't as easy as they thought, and the recent discovery of some type of warp-drive principle determines them to return to Earth, and try to retake it from Godzilla. Due to the relativistic effects  of warp travel that the space ark people had no control over, when they finally return to Earth 22 years after they left it, they discover that 19,200 years have passed on Earth, and the world has evolved an entirely new ecosystem supporting Godzilla's existence. It's very different from your typical kaiju movie scenario, but analysis of Godzilla himself now reveals why he had been impervious to all prior attacks by even nuclear weapons (G has a biologically-generated force shield, but needs to collapse it in order to generate his atomic breath attack). A plan is evolved to fire an Electro-Magnetic-Pulse harpoon into G's body at the moment when his force shield is down. Triggering the EMP within G's body should set up a chain reaction that will destroy him. It's humanity's only hope of reclaiming their home planet, so the future of everything rests on what they do now. The first film ended on a cliffhanger, and so does the second, which means there should be a third (or maybe more?) in this series. Both movies had a running time of about 88 minutes
