So we got some leftovers I have been saving for quite a while now, and it’s time I shared the stench with you guys. But sometimes, old things don’t smell so bad, or not all of it at least. We got two reviews way past their expiration date, Dark Solder D and Pacific Rim (or what I wanna call “PacRim”!!)
My Dark Solder D review was originally recorded back in December 2012 (I believe), and was submitted for the last part of Regan’s Anime 82 Mecha Madness podcast to see if he would take this live action mecha atrocity to heart. Well, he gave a brief “NO MAN, NOT GONNA HAPPEN!” on that episode, so the recording (and this post i’m writing on) just sat in the vault till it was needed. But now, that time has come.
If I told you that Dark Soldier D wasn’t offensive to the senses in some way, I would commit one of the worst crimes against humanity. With shooting giant chickens in the ass with an M60 machine gun, brains floating in jars that have speech devices, mad Russians, hooking up with a girl that steals your crap, limbs a flying and much more, you can bet your in for the 3 episode ride of your life.
We then move on to the greatest anime-to-live-action adaptation that wasn’t off an anime, which makes PacRim the best anime of 2013! Both Daft and I were on this recording back when the movie came out in theaters as we each give our own personal views on the movie (and before we got 1 star rating that I found out later that came from Daft on iTunes for some dumbass hipster reason.) Pacific Rim will release your inner child for an hour and a half, with a sense that you have a plastic robot in your hand as you watch the coolest fights break out on the big screen. With the movie out on DVD/BluRay, you should have already bought the thing by now, or you will for Christmas. Either way, get it!
This also gets us to talk about Comic book movie talk, me discussing the Wolverine movie (SPOILERS), toy talk, anime to live action talk, how PacRim is not Evangelion, “Bay”Formers talk, the marketing reasons behind 3D movies now, and much more.
OP – My feelings to express Dark Solder D
EyeCatch – Best anime opening of 2013
