Good GOD Cape Fear was horrible.

The whole parade scene with the unnecessary horror music ruined the movie for me.

The only directors who should be allowed to touch McCarthy's work should be the Cohen brothers.

No Country for Old men was a fantastic adaptation and one of the truest-to-the-source movies out there.

This episode was pretty weak in comparison to the last 10 or so episodes.  Don't really know what else to say besides that.

Awesome. I thought the movies were a bit underwhelming compared to the early seasons, but I'm definitely glad for more Futurama. Thanks for the news.

Agreed, good sir.

The manga is pretty much in epic-movie-mode right now.

I really don't understand the trend of reviving franchises from childhood. My first reaction to hearing about a Transformers remake was "Yeah, Transformers were AWESOME ... when I was FIVE." Does Michael Bay and Hollywood in general really expect us to take these kiddy-franchise movies seriously? Enough to shell out $10 for each movie and its tired sequels? Just for the potential to relive a childhood novelty?



Yes.  Yes they do.

rock and roll "is part of the counterculture which seeks to implant seeds of rebellion in young people's hearts and minds."

I laughed at that.

Music didn't plant the seeds of rebellion.  The parents did.

Hahaha, are you a God Hand member? They seemed to think it was worthy. And that's all that really counts, unless you want to write a Letter to the Editor for the God Hand Gazzette expressing your opinion of unworthiness. I'm not sure Void would run the letter though...  :void:

And anyway, "what we know about Ganishka" is mostly from his time as an apostle. Obviously he doesn't show sympathy for the lives of others after he's sacrificed his humanity.
I think the actual power of his feelings for his son are betrayed by his fear. Not only that, if he was so fearful of his son and wife, why not kill them off secretly? He had that option. Why let a successor live when Ganishka more than anyone knows the danger and the violence of succession.

Also, this may be pushing it a bit, but it's how I read it. As a child, Ganishka's relationships with his brother and mother were strained because of the bloodshed. Because of that, I'm sure there were a lot of repressed feelings of guilt and anguish that would have manifested in his relationship with his son. He kept him at a distance, but probably had great hopes as well because of his loss of innocence as a child. We'll never know though... because that chapter of the story is now over.

Good call.  My opinion has been swayed.

I read it once and didn't even think about making the comparison.

Honestly, I don't find Ganishka's sacrifice to be worthy.  From what we know about Ganishka, he has little to no sympathy for the lives of others.  For Miura to have him sacrifice a son he barely saw or cared little for seems like a scapegoat to me.  He didn't see his son for years and never spoke to him so I highly doubt there was enough love or connection for it to be a genuine sacrifice.

Geeze Walter get with the times.  :troll:

Anyways, I hit a Dune wall. I love Dune, but I can't find the urge to pick up the next book. Maybe it's school work. So In the mean time I'm reading Child of God by Cormick McCarthy, when ever I get time to go to the book store to finish it.

That's a good book.  You should check out Blood Meridian afterwards.

Much obliged, Griffith and Aazealh!
                                 
I imagine the next episode will make me climax in my pants no less than 599 times.

Reading these lyrics makes me wonder why I listen to Metallica.

Also, Dragonforce is a better band to assosciate Berserk with.

I imagine the dimensions used are 11x17.  And then, for double-page spreads, they probably just combine two 11x17 artboards and go from there. 

That's the standard for American comics and I've also seen some manga artists use that format as well.  There's really no telling unless you had an inside source or found a random employee who actually cared enough about your question to take the time to check.

So, yeah, I would go with the industry standard of 11x17 artboard.

Makes me think it'd be funny if we saw Grunbeld imbedded in the ground under Ganishka's foot, not dead but half-buried. :void:

I would pay a million dollars to see Grunbeld in the ground saying, "A little help, please?" as he was trying to get out XD
