This Looks Kind Of Good…*Collective Groan*

Posted in bad for your health, horror, movies, preview, supernatural with tags , , , on July 17, 2010 by ampzr

There were quite a few entries I wanted to post yesterday. Unfortunately I’m passing a kidney stone. I’m always saying I never want to have kids, but everyone says a kidney stone is worse than childbirth. Maybe I should give birth…nah still rather have the kidney stones even though they hurt like hell.

Anyway one thing I wanted to write about, but didn’t get the chance was the during the midnight showing of Inception I went to there was a trailer for a movie everyone seemed to be enjoying. It seemed suspenseful and spooky. That is until the entire theater groaned collectively when this…

showed up on screen. Everyone then proceeded to bust up laughing. I can only think though that the sigh happened because the trailer really did look good and we were all disappointed that the movie was made by M. Night Shyamalan. We wanted it to be good. I guess that brings me to a few questions. Has M. Night ruined his name so much that even if he makes something good no one will go see it? How many people out there are still rooting for him? Hoping for that next great movie? I know I’ve seen them all. I’ll probably continue to see them all. Even though me and my friend were so close to walking out of The Happening.

Well here’s the trailer for Shyamalan’s newest movie, Devil. Let me know what you think.

Shiki Ep. 2: Small Towns Really Kill The Soul

Posted in anime, horror, review, supernatural with tags , , , , on July 15, 2010 by ampzr

Today I watched the second episode of Shiki. This show really is shaping up to be one of my summer favorites! Episode two really cemented the horror/creepy feeling of the show. I posted a trailer above instead of the usual episode picture, because it really does display the horror feel the show is growing into.

Not much to say about this episode, because I liked it so much. Local doctor Ozaki Toshio is piecing together that all the recent deaths seem to have something behind them. Also Yuuki Natsuno is a huge dick this episode, and pissed me off. I know you didn’t even really know Megumi, but take a dead girls letter! Even if just for the sake of  her mourning friend. Throw it away I don’t care! Just take it.

All that’s left to say is…go watch this show!! You can always watch it subbed over at Funimation.

Mitsudomoe Ep. 1 & 2: Groin Abuse, Snot Ropes, and lots of Urine

Posted in anime, bad for your health, horror, loli, review with tags , , , , , on July 13, 2010 by ampzr

I really liked Kodomo no Jikan. I really liked Chu-Bra. I did not like Mitsudomoe. The show is just a series of random happenings that mostly make you go wtf. Basically we’re following three severely messed up sixth graders and the unfortunate people forced to be around them. However all the gags the show tries to pull off never really make you feel anything except at times disgust.

One of our first big gags is when the girls decide to injure their teacher’s groin so the school nurse will have to treat it and the two will fall in love. This was one of the more interesting moments but still just kind of meh. There were many uneventful stories like the classroom hamster being named Nipple among other non-eventful stories. The other stories that stuck out only stuck out due to disgust they brought on. One of the sisters has a cold and sneezes snot everywhere. The worst part is it’s like industrial strength snot rope. This may sound amusing but please believe me it’s not. Also another gross moment is when the school nurse is collecting urine samples. She spills urine everywhere. Everyone gets urine on them. It doesn’t stop there either. Due to some mystical force the urine bottles appear from nowhere. (Really how did a urine bottle get into her coat pocket?) So we have to deal with urine in coffee and urine used as eye drops.

Lets also face the fact that the girls in this show or supposed to be sixth graders but every character looks like a child. The adults look like they’re in middle-school and the middle-school kids look like preschool-elementary school kids! Everyone usually has one round chipmunk tooth and in general the same body type. Like some weird chibi form…

If you love yourself…hell even if you only tolerate yourself stay away from this show! After the first episode I wanted to stop but I decided to go on for the sake of reviewing. I was even hoping it would get better. So I thought I need to give the second episode a try. Don’t be like me and sacrifice precious moments of your life on this show. Stay far far away!

I also wanted to smash my face into a bloody puddle after watching this anime

If you so care to know my personal complaint with this show…

Another character this summer season whose glasses fall off and they’re completely blind!!! NNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Yeah I know it’s a common anime device but two shows this season where I have to deal with this? Anime aren’t you better than this by now? If some how it serves a purpose ok whatever. When it happens for no reason…*sigh*

Shiki ep. 1: More Supernatural/Horror For Our Summer Season

Posted in anime, horror, review, supernatural with tags , , , , , on July 13, 2010 by ampzr

It’s summer lets bring out the dark, moody, and in general try and make things a little less bright. We’ve got our demons in Kuroshitsuji II. Zombies in High School of the Dead. Right now it appears general occult and ghosties in Occult Academy. Why not throw in another supernatural/horror show? Of course I don’t mind because I eat this stuff up. Review time!

Pictured above is Megumi, a high fashioned girl stuck in a small “hick” town. The only thing she wants is to escape and have a glamourous life in the big city. Oh and the newer boy in town Yuuki too. He’s from the city after all so that’s probably a plus in her book.

The episode starts out with a search party looking for Megumi in the woods and we see her body lying on the ground. After the credits we rewind and get to experience Megumi and her everyday life before that opening scene occured. She’s really rather cute and gets angry at even old lady gossip. I enjoyed watching her parade angrily around town. Who hasn’t at one point thought while growing up that their life would be better off if they could just get to the big city? There has been a recently built European styled mansion in her town and she can’t wait for it’s residents to move in. Also imagining that they’ll think she is so cute and want to be her pseudo parents. We’re also introduced to other characters either by Megumi’s interactions with them or from the strange deaths that occur nearby.

Basically the beginning of this episode is leading up to Megumi stomping off to the mansion after it’s new owners have moved in. Megumi gets the strange feeling she is being watched and this is where our opening scene links back in. After finding Megumi she won’t eat and is getting frailer and frailer. It seems that something was done to her by someone (seems to be the blonde mother) from the mansion and shortly thereafter she passes away.

I loved the feeling this show gives off. The characters all seemed lovable in their own ways and really I liked Megumi a lot. I’m hoping she’s not actually dead. Hey, it’s a supernatural show is it could happen. The “creepier” scenes are done very well and what I can only imagine are the mother and daughter from the mansion never get their eyes shown. You don’t see them or it’s just blackness and that had a nice creepy effect.

I can’t wait for the next episode. So far another one of my summer favorites along with Kuroshitsuji II and High School of the Dead.

High School Of the Dead & It Just Keeps Getting Better

Posted in anime, horror, review, supernatural with tags , , , , , on July 12, 2010 by ampzr

I just finished the second episode of High School of the Dead. Again another great episode. While the first episode was more about mood and setup. Episode two starts to delve into our characters a little more. Finally they’re all coming together and we get to see some great emotions from the cast. Of course atmosphere is still maintained by showing some news footage from the outside world and the characters try to setup a plan to escape the school and find their families.

I can’t wait to see their character growth as the series continues. I love that admits all of this zombie horror there is going to be romantic triangles and I’m sure hurt feelings. I mean lets face it just because zombies attack it doesn’t mean people lose who they used to be. That’s one of the aspects of this show that makes it believable.

Of course we can’t forget that there are still bouncing boobies and panty shots. Though it didn’t feel like there was as much as in the first episode. Maybe I was just watching for it to much. Although Marikawa Shizuka the school nurse does provide some hilarious jiggles

Everything is done right in this show and I hope that these two episodes are just glimpses of what greatness is to come.

Let the zombie gore commence!

Highschool of The Dead: Anime and Zombies Done Right

Posted in anime, figures, horror, review, supernatural with tags , , , , , , on July 10, 2010 by ampzr

Well, I’m a little behind the times. Actually quite a bit behind consider yesterday I used to finish two anime series that ended in early ’09 yesterday. Today I decided to watch the first episode of Highschool of the Dead though. Now I’m sure everyone’s already heard great things about this series but here it goes again.

First off I thought the animation was great! And yes there is tons of “fan service” with bouncing boobs and panty shots. I might vary from other girls in the fact that that doesn’t bother me. For some reason I especially like it in this show because it’s kind of funny in contrast to all the violence happening with the fan-service.

Also as you’ve probably heard there are many cliched ideas and scenes in the first episode but they pull it off so well it doesn’t even matter.

So far I love the main male character. I can’t tell his personality exactly but he doesn’t seem to be your “hero” hero type. Not to say he’s a coward just a angry highschooler with some problems. From the end of the episode it doesn’t even seem like he minds that he’s kind of gotten the girl he’s liked since childhood because he threatened to leave her alone after smashing in her zombie boyfriends brains. What a dick but we love it. Otherwise people wouldn’t like Death Note or Code Geass. Maybe that’s mostly girls who like those characters though because my male friends are always going on about how they hate those characters. We don’t really get introduced to the rest of the main cast yet but it does appear they all show up in one small clip or another.

*Had to come back and add that there’s even a Muse-esque song used toward the end of the episode. Think 28 weeks later. Or any recent trailer lately for that matter. Even Day & Knight used a Muse song…*

The only thing I have left to say is go watch it if you haven’t and I hope it keeps being great! Also any guys out there want to tell me if they like asshole main male charters?

I feel like I should buy figures from this show now…

GameCrush: Be a Player

Posted in horror, personal, video games, wacky on March 29, 2010 by ampzr

Upon visiting Topless Robot I discovered that there’s a new site called GameCrush. I’d explain it all but it’s best to read this:

“GameCrush, now available in public beta, introduces an entirely new interactive social gaming experience allowing gamers to meet, match and pay to play online games with other users (PlayDates). GameCrush is the only online service that allows gamers to choose a companion to spice up their favorite online games. Both Players and PlayDates define the experience they want- either “flirty” or “dirty”, choosing from some of the most popular console titles and casual web-based games. To register for free, visit www.gamecrush.com.”

Also from the GameCrush website,

“The GameCrush Public Beta is temporarily unavailable due to the incredible user response (more than 10,000 inquiries in five minutes). We are adding new servers to provide players with the best PlayDate experience possible. Games with GameCrush PlayDates start at $6.60 for ten minutes.”

I’m not entirely sure how to feel about this. As a girl gamer I play with boys all the time for free. Does this make me more or less of a game whore than if I charged money? No but in all seriousness I’m wondering what people think of this? Is it just perpetuating the ideas that lonely boys play video games and girls will only play if they’re getting something out of it?

Once the site is back I’ll sign up and see what it’s all about. I’m curious but really afraid. I don’t want to be saddened by what I might see or experience on this site. Also I don’t know if I could be “flirty” or “dirty” while playing games with someone. Unless you count swearing up and down because I’m getting my ass kicked. I’d probably just end up laughing all the time at the ridiculousness of the situation.

I’ll give my thoughts later once I take a look. (God save my soul.)

Who want’s to bet the girls you’ll be playing with won’t look like this?
