Here we are fully underway in 2017 and there are a helllluva lot of comic book movies happening this year! I’m excited! Now I know that’s no surprise...people call me the most positive fanboy on the planet. I give every movie the chance to impress me, and I admit it, I’m an easy sell. That’s just the person I am. I suppose I’m simply one of those fans that remembers a time when comic book and superhero movies were few and far between, and clearly not the level they are now. I am enjoying this amazing era we are living in! Read more...

A time ago, I took the time to get you readers excited for 2017 by revealing a number of female-led anime coming out in the winter anime season of the year, which already started. Hopefully, you are finding what you anticipated to see. Well, enough of anime. It is time to turn our attention to American science-fiction. No year of entertainment is ever exciting without anything to offer from one of the greatest genres in all media. This year however, the fun begins in February, thus my reason for not starting this a few weeks ago. So without further ado, I reveal in what will be my final column for ENR, 12 things from American sci-fi that are bound to make 2017 super for all you genre fans out there. So buckle up and enjoy the ride. Engage! Read more...

Days ago, comic book publisher Titan Comics announced that it will be launching a new comic book series based on Robotech sometime in early 2017. As a fan of the giant robot trope in both comics and screen productions, I got super excited as it meant not only more Robotech story content despite the absence of detail on what the series will be about, but also another giant robot-themed sci-fi epic to look forward to reading in comic print after reading the six-issue comic book miniseries Voltron: From the Ashes, which like the upcoming comic book series, is based on an American sci-fi television series that is in turn a re-edit and re-dub of multiple unrelated anime series put together.

It was ComicCon time in my hometown of Montreal once again and it was the biggest event ever! More than 50,000 fans came out to let their geek flag fly and it was once again an exciting show! Much more space, more vendors a bigger Artists Alley and an awesome atmosphere that for the first time I saw many celebs like John Barrowman (Malcolm Merlyn from Arrow), Michael Rooker (of Guardians of the Galaxy and Walking Dead) and more walking the con floor and taking in the show (I myself had some fun moments with the celebs, more on that later). I of course had my adventures taking pics of the thousands of fun cosplays this year and yet again, it's time for my Annual Cosplay Parade!  Read more...

One of the wonders of fiction when it comes to storytelling that it shows us, the audiences, things we wish could exist in the real world but does not and never will. Although there are unreal things we wouldn't want to exist in our world, we always think of fiction as an escape from reality, which is actually its essence. Sometimes, we find ourselves wishing we could live in the universes of our favorite works of fiction, and that I say is okay because let's face it, fictional characters live in what goes beyond the limits of where we exist in, and sometimes, the real world can seem like a more dull and unpleasant place than the unreal worlds we explore ourselves through consumption of film, radio serials, television, novels, stage plays, and even video games.

Wonder-Woman-044When we think International Women's Day (or simply "women's day"), we think of it as a March holiday honoring the women in our lives whether it be family members, friends, co-workers, etc. For us genre fans, women's day is more than just that as it is also our way of celebrating our love for our favorite female characters from fiction (especially the sci-fi, fantasy, and horror kinds of fiction), whether it be film, television, comic books, novels, or even video games. There is no doubt that throughout the history of storytelling, the world has been introduced to a huge variety of beloved female characters from fiction, not just heroines but also villainesses (no offense).

ghost-in-the-shell-posterWhen I first started writing column posts for ENR | eXPress News & Reviews, the original intent was to dedicate my entire column to featuring weekly commentaries (review and studies) on superhero fiction works from across multiple entertainment mediums (comics/graphic novels, television, and film) as I was looking for a theme I can commit to focusing on every week, but starting with this feature, it is my desirable intent to sometimes take a break from writing about superhero stories so as to provide commentaries on non-superhero-themed Japanese animation works, whether it is to visit new anime I have the chance to see myself or to provide look-backs at ones from before the current year.   In case you are wondering, “What influenced this change of mandate, SHX?”,  well you see, the 2014 Fantasia International Film Festival (which is to take place in the Montreal , QC on July 17 through August 6) is scheduled to present on its opening night, a high-definition screening of the landmark 1995 Japanese animated science-fiction theatrical film Ghost in the Shell, a non-superhero-themed  movie for mature audiences produced by Production I.G. and directed by legendary film director Mamoru Oshii of Patlabor The Movie fame, and considering that 1) some of you readers out there are likely to be available in the town during then to attend the Fantasia screenings, and 2) I have seen the anime film myself and possess a DVD copy of the movie itself (though in its “Ghost in the Shell 2.0” cut), I am happy to take the time to present to you, my analysis on a particular theme essential to the story plot in the movie so as to give you a clear thought on what to expect as you watch this classic animated film, whether you will be seeing it at Fantasia Festival, to purchase whatever edited version of the film is currently available on DVD, or wait for its Region 1 HD Blu-Ray/DVD release in the Fall.
