Hey Poppers and welcome back to Movie Monday.
One of the things I love about the net and YouTube is finding gems in the sand of the internet beach.
PostHuman is one of those. Directed by Cole Drumb. Produced by Jennifer Wai-Yin Luk and starring the voice of Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica). Production company: Colliculi Productions
Animation studio: Humouring The Fates
“Set in an adrenalized future of espionage, assassins, and out of control super science, PostHuman follows a genius hacker and his dog as they help an enigmatic young woman to free the remaining test subject of a black ops ESP test lab.”

If you watch any Japanese anime you will recognize the style right away. This short is well crafted and beautiful. I got more involved in this short piece that most of the movies I saw this summer. The short has won many awards and it is well deserved.
So sit back and enjoy. If you like this short film hit it up with a like on YouTube.
If you have not had a chance to see this music video by The DoubleClicks. This video has a bunch of real nerd girls and some nerd guys showing signs of there proud nerd back grounds. Also of being not excepted because of being female. I am amazed how even in the world of nerds, geeks and dweebs that there is still a form a bigotry. You think that as a group of people ostracized by most of society that we would be some what more understanding. This video shows that we still find someone in our own culture to pick on.
A few hours ago I visited my local theater to see “The Wolverine” and I was not disappointed at all. The movie is superior to the 2009 “X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I like that movie but “The Wolverine” just told a better story and the acting was so much better. Hugh Jackman has to act more in this film and shows it. The cast of supporting actors are also great. Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Rila Fukushima as Yokio, Hiroyuki Sanada as Shingen and Svelana Khodchenkova as Viper are all good.
Now I guess you like to know some of the story. Ok here’s a little of it.
Wolverine is now camping out in the woods hiding away trying to run away from who he trully is, a soldier. The death of Jean Grey, seen in his dreams portrayed once again by Framke Janssen still haunts him. Back in WW2 while a prisoner at a Japanese prisoner camp on the out skirts of Hiroshima Logan saves a Japanese soldier from the nuclear bomb dropped on that city. Many years later that same solider sends Mariko to find Logan to say thank you for saving his live.
Well that ain’t all???
The soilder, ( Hal Yamanouchi) offers Logan a chance at a natural death in return for his healling powers. Well Logan refuses and from there the story starts to move along. Ok here’s where I don’t tell you anymore. Well except that the action sequences are good but I am sure that for any young male out there they may find there is not enough. I enjoyed hearing the character talk more that saying a few lines and then the shit hits the fan.
So if you were hoping that I tell you more about the story well to bad. You need to be a little surprised by some of the movie. Oh make sure you stay put at the end. Like many of the Marvel movies there is a little something at the end well worth sticking around for.
So in the end is “The Wolverine” worth you money, hell yeah. I think you will enjoy it.
I give “The Wolverine” 4 claws out of 5.
Sneakyzebra posted this video of some of the amazing Cosplay that was happening at this year San Diego Comic-Con. Also the song Down With Webster. “One In A Million” really help sells this video.

So a little late in a reveiw but maybe you may have not decided to spend you cash on this book, yet? Written by James Asmus and art by Tom Fowler Quantum and Woody are not your typical heroes. Hell they can not seem to get along with each other. Quantum and Woody were created by M D Bright & Christopher Priest for Valiant comics after the company was acquired by Acclaim Entertainment. I was a big fan of Valiant back in the day when they first came out but once it was bought out by Acclaim I lost all interest in the books. So I have no idea about this books history.
Saying that, I found the book entertaining but nothing that really stood out for me. The main characters are foster brothers Woodrow Van Chelton (Woody) and Eric Henderson in this retelling of the story. They are brought back together after the mysterious death of their father. Eric is the more discipline of the two after serving in the military and Woody, well he just gets along on his wits. You can see that Eric resents his brother mostly because of the pressure put on him by their father. Woody just wings it and seems to not to have a care in the world and for no one. There is a part where Woody tries to tell Eric his feeling but does not get the chance.
The story is interesting and I can see James Asmus is trying to set up a back story to show the conflict between Eric and Woody so book #1 is kind of a orgin story. The art by Tom Fowler is fun and is animated. I will have to pick another issue of two to fine out if I want to continue with book.
So in the end I would say pick it up and give it a shot. I give it 3 goats out of 5
Remember comics are to be enjoyed, not destroyed.
The BBC has announced that the three episode series In The Flesh has been picked up for a second season. The second season will also only three episodes. It seems that zombies are a big hit all over the world.
If you have not seen the series I highly recommend that you find it and give it a watch. Not like you typical zombie story. In The Flesh tells the story of Kieran Walker as a PDS survivor. PDS (Partially Dead Syndrome) is what the partially dead have. A treatment has been created to help the undead rehabilitate back into into the world of the living. This is not your typical zombie show/movie and throw a new twist into the old zombie eating the flesh show. So again spend sometime finding this show it is worth it.
