Green Phoenix - The Saga of Tanya the Evil Review

Image result for saga of tanya the evilAs many of you might be aware, I am a man of many varied passions. I tremendously enjoy alternate history and the exploration and analysis of history in general. I also am a fan of, if a little picky about, anime and the fantasy and science fiction genres.

So imagine my surprise when I am introduced to a series like Youjo Senkai, more commonly known by its English title The Saga of Tanya the Evil. A series based on the light novels by Carlo Zen and adapted by some former Madhouse animators, directors, and producers, The Saga of Tanya the Evil is available for viewing on Crunchyroll.

While I have watched and do enjoy the English sub, I will using the English dub for the review of the series (as I feel it is of comparable quality). I will also be taking a look at the recently released film in my analysis of the series, as it effectively plays the role of the second season.

Red Diamond: My top 10 Best Incarnations of Power Rangers



Here is a countdown I feel needs to be gotten out of the way. There is a lot of diversity when it comes to "best" seasons of Power Rangers, but this list is purely my opinion. Many people and websites will disagree and that is perfectly fine. One note, rather than "season", I'm listing "incarnations" because some have multiple seasons and this makes it easier. So, click "read more" and let's go.

Grass Cutter - Mutated Lawns (Playstation Vita) Review.


Have you ever wanted to play a game that's based on your fantasy of mowing peoples lawns for a buck, while your best friend's attractive mother brings you a nice tall cold glass of lemonade?  Well, this game is kinda like that, but without your best friend's sexy mother.  This is Grass Cutter for the Sony PlayStation Vita of all things.  Will this game be a blast or will it be less fun than watching grass grow?  It's a Sometimes You game, so it's bound to be one of those two things.  (Click on "Read More" to read the full review.)

Green Phoenix - The Monolith Monsters Review

The Monolith Monsters.jpgA few weeks back, I did a review of the 1977 killer car horror film The Car. Just like that film, I came across this week's movie through the hosted horror-comedy show Svengoolie (check out his website here).

And much like that film, I was absolutely enthralled by a film that represented the absolute best of a "so bad, it's good" kind of B-movie horror.

Released in 1957 by Universal-International, The Monolith Monsters is goofy, campy, and wholly ridiculous in both its premise and execution. And it was considered just as much back when it was first made as well.

But just like The Car, I found myself innately drawn to rather unknown black-and-white science fiction film from the Golden Age of B-Movies.
