Happy Birthday Marion Michael!

Today would have been the 79th birthday of the late German actress Marion Michael. She is perhaps best known for the role of Liane, a quintessential jungle girl, which she played in two fifties’ films, called Liane, Jungle Goddess and Nature Girl and the Slaver (Liane, das Mädchen aus dem Urwald and Liane, die weiße Sklavin respectively in German). This picture is a reimagining of Liane, Jungle Goddess as a Japanese comic (in Japanese, the title for this film is simply Naked Woman of the Jungle).

Liane, Jungle Goddess is readily available on the internet in English and I suggest you search it out if you are a fan of classic pulp fiction about jungle girls. I found it quite entertaining and Marion Michael is absolutely stunning in it, no matter what state of dress she happens to be in.😋 Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Another Poster for “Alita: Battle Angel” Released!

This is the second poster to be released for the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel film. I thought the first poster was fantastic. This one is just a generic movie poster. But you do get a look at the main cast and the floating city of Tiphares (AKA Zalem). Speaking of the floating city, it also features prominently on the cover for the Alita prequel novel, titled Iron City, which is now available from Titan Books. You can check out the cover below.

My Thoughts On: “Bumblebee”

Bumblebee, the latest film in the Transformers‘ franchise, has been out for a few days now. I myself actually went to see it about a week and a half ago, thanks again to one of my local cinemas having had advance screenings. But the fact that it’s taken me this long to write this post probably makes it obvious how I feel about this film; I didn’t like it. If you want to know why, read on. As always, there won’t be any major spoilers.

Official Japanese Trailer for “Alita: Battle Angel” Released!

Well, this Japanese trailer for the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel film is just incredible. Unlike the Western trailers, this one really gives you a sense of the epicness of Alita‘s story. I’m very impressed! I only wish I’d seen it before I published my last post, on the Alita poster, because I could’ve included it in there.😋 I actually had the webpage with the Japanese trailer open while I was writing that post, but I assumed it was the same as last month’s Western trailer, just with Japanese subtitles. I was planning to watch it simply to see what the Japanese subtitles were like. I certainly wasn’t expecting to have my mind blown.😀 I think I’ll go and watch it again now. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

Poster for “Alita: Battle Angel” Released!

This poster for the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel film was revealed on twitter yesterday. Alita looks amazing, doesn’t she? I love her pose, her proportions and her expression. She’s perfect!😍 I was a little disappointed when Alita was pushed back to February (from its December release date), but seeing this poster has got me excited for it once again! Assuming this is the official theatrical poster, it’ll be great to see it in the cinemas soon. And it’d be great to see it on my wall one day, as well!😄

A second trailer for Alita was released last month and a short clip from it was released only a few days. You can check out both below. Continue reading

My Thoughts On: “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse officially opens next week, but today I went to an advance screening at one of my local cinemas, so I thought I make a post on my thoughts on it. As usual, I won’t be giving out any major spoilers. Continue reading
