Gatchaman (CGI) movie will be based on the anime series of the same name scheduled to be completed in 2010 by Imagi Animation Studios.

Kevin Munroe (TMNT) was originally scheduled to write and direct with Lynne Southerland (co-director of Mulan 2) as producer, however, they were taken off the project. The film script is to be written by Paul Dini.

Japanese Spiderman (Marvel/Toei)

Catch this once a week online episode of Japanese Spiderman via MARVEL website now
...(IMHO) it's better than the spidey movie 3, absolute retro-goodness for me, how about you?

Produced by Toei Company in the late 1970s, the series follows the exploits of motorcycle racer turned super hero Takuya Yamashiro (not Peter Parker), as he slings and swings, battling the evil Iron Cross Army along the way. No, it's not the Spider-Man most fans are used to, but it's fun, frantic...

It's "fxxxing distracting good" which i believe even christian bale would exclaimed...another figure to "slim-pified" my wallet this year...damn

To buy or not to buy? Sideshow 12inch Stormtroopers

There's been a lot of mixed reviews of Sideshow 12inch stormtroopers in the SS forum recently debating whether to buy this. I think a lot of collectors are tightening their wallet at this period of time so i can empathize on that situation (so aren't we all?)

I think both Medicom or SS version have got their pros and cons,no matter it's quality or price, maybe collectors can see this in another perspective? You buy because you love the character? That way, no matter how shitty the figure is, you will still love it? :)

Just my one cent worth on a beautiful saturday morning...hahaha

Alan Moore was correct!! WATCHMEN is unfilmable

I  am not going to give you major spoilers but here's a few pointers before you go watch this movie:
(a) Hard core comic fan - Do not attempt to watch this movie

(b) Get a good and comfortable seats when you watch this's freakin' 3 hours

(c) Read the brief plot of this movie online, so that you know what to expect (it's not your typical superhero action-packed genre) Try not to walk away halfway thru' and waste your are better off watching "My bloody valentine" showing next door.

(d) This line needs PG ok? SG censorboard suckz...the whole movie you can see Dr. Manhattan 3D "blue" dick and in 1 scene you see three of them :P plus maybe some scene you will spot some tits but they go and censor a few miserable seconds of sex scenes. It was quite a letdown in our so-called unbelievable bullshit rating system. Might as well give it a R21 lah...i don't think a 18 year old kid will appreciates this movie anyway.

(e) Alan Moore was correct, this comic is unfilmable, as faithful this film is to the comic, i feel that director Jack Snyder could have make a better screenplay adaptation on this theme himself.

(f) All the above is my personal opinion, so no need to take it seriously. This movie has some flaws and it's not 100% perfect, it's still watchable and the plot might intrigues you a bit to stay on track if you're a superhero comic fans (like myself) Definitely not boring.

(g) Overall, it's not as entertaining than i expected but it inspired me to go read that long dusty novel which i shelved for many years. Anyway, it's much better than Strait Times Critics 2/5 rating...i give this a 3/5
