I've been watching a bunch of things lately.

Jan and I watched a lot of stuff over the Fourth of July weekend:

Onmyouji 1 & 2

Loved it. The first one made me want to see if there is more, and the second one made me glad there was. Highly scenic, lots of nifty stuff from history/legend/mythology. I can see why the slash fans like this. More of this would make me happy. (Those last two sentences are not as related as they might seem.)

The Invicibles

I liked this, it was fun. I like how it explores the relationship between superheros and villans. I was a little frustrated that they left the end so unresolved... What is the fate of our now-outed superheros? I suppose that this leaves it open-ended for a sequel. But to me it felt more like the writers did not feel like taking the trouble of coming up with a resolution, and so did a little hand-waving and punted.

The Mummy

Continuing with a highly scenic media weekend, this was, well, scenic. This is a fun movie, reminscent of the old serials. Though the curse involved still seems like a most odd one.

After looking over the schedules at two different anime conventions I have come to the conclusion that I really should try watch more anime. So, recently I watched:

Tsukihime, Lunar Legend

This was nice. Not the greatest thing I've ever seen, but engrossing enough. The first episode didn't grab me, but it grew steadily on me after that.

Ouran High School Host Club

I've only seen one episode, but this is highly entertaining. More episodes are downloading currently.

USA has started a new series, Psyched. Most entertaining, I highly recommend it.

And that's all for now.

  • Kamen Rider Gaim

    If you wrote off this year's Kamen Rider because the fruit theme or because the first several episodes were thoroughly silly, give it another try.…

  • Hisashiburi

    For reasons I go into below I decided for the first time in a long time to see what the folks who made Ultraman Moebius have been up to lately. I…

  • Hail Mary

    Let's see if my 11th hour Hail Mary manages to redeem the disaster the last nine months have been. *crosses fingers* In related news, 2014 seems to…
