    Daft Punk: "Daftendirektour"

    ★★★½

    Streamed live on Twitch on the anniversary of their breakup, here we have a previously unreleased concert film from the duo's 1997 tour that appears to have been fully edited but shelved. The only bit that was ever made public prior to the live steam being a censored clip of "Rollin' and Scratchin'" used for that song's music video.

    In terms of the filmmaking it's serviceable considering the context in which it was made. It's often a bit too…

    While watching these Warner Bros shorts in chronological order you see their most famous characters become more and more defined as the shorts get better and better. Even here in the early 40's Porky and Daffy aren't quite honed to perfection yet. The wabbit that would soon be known as Bugs Bunny had been in a few shorts prior to this, and was honestly too mean to connect with and too similar to Daffy to stand out.

    Gamera has a storied history with this show - it's often credited with bolstering the kaiju's cult following in the states. Their riff on Vs Guiron is probably my favorite episode of the show, so I was so excited for them to tackle this one - and it definitely delivered.

    There is so much dead space in this slow-paced movie, making it such perfect fodder for the bots. Might be biased, but this is my favorite episode this season. Surprising amount of songs too!

    You really think that Jordan Peele was gonna put all that effort into an original, big budget horror/comedy film and not include an homage to the AKIRA slide?

    ★★★★

    A marvelous visual feast. The mind behind The Book of Life gets the freedom to create a 4.5 hour long epic about loss, love, family and the gods that tie it all together. I can not stress enough how amazing this show looks - it's even more impressive than what Gutierrez was doing with Reel FX.

    Story moves at a blistering pace, and can become tiring if you binge this. Fortunately the series is structured as 3 "movies" cut into…

    Dofus - Book I: Julith

    ★★★★

    The French studio Ankama is widely known for their MMORPGs Dofus and its sequel Wakfu. The latter of which got its own TV series produced in-house in the late 2000's to allow the game's creators to retain creative control. This series is how I was eventually introduced to the franchise, as its Kickstarter-backed English dub was brought to Netflix in 2014. Despite the dub being hit or miss at times, I found it hard not to be fascinated by all…
