Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Rebellion (Blu-Ray) Review

Image
Suffice it to say there are MAJOR SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST TWO FILMS, as well as MINOR SPOILERS FOR THIS ONE. I'd honestly recommend you watch both before you get stuck into my wordiness.

Long-time readers of the site will know that I was, to put it very mildly, pleasantly surprised by the first two Madoka Magica films. As someone who hadn't seen the anime but had had it recommended and praised to high heaven, it was gratifying to see a story as lauded as this that actually lived up to a lot of the hype. It might not be Evangelion or Cowboy Bebop, but dammit it if isn't still one hell of a great film.

That was a great enough experience for me on its own. But then I found out there was a sequel. That had been released earlier in Japan. And was coming out here. In English. In 2015.

If there was a thermometer for measuring how excited a guy can get, it would've burst its mercury at this point.

But that also left me skeptical. The original movie ended quite firmly, with a re…

Worthy successor to original. So wrong, yet oh so right.

Massive show this week. Our resident movie guy, Stu, saw like 17 films at the Sydney Film festival, we all saw Jurassic world and E3 is happening. So yeah big is kind of an understatement.

 As always it would make our day if you could take a couple of minutes to rate and reviews us on iTunes or drop us some feedback below! Really keen to have your input in the show.

Jurassic World #10wordreviews

Self aware, outstanding effects, loyal to franchise. Buckets of fun!

READ, WATCH, PLAY! EPISODE THREE: NOT YOUR BIGGEST FAN

Image
After an unrestrained love-fest for Mad Max: Fury road last episode, this episode sees a return to the mixed bag approach as Stu, Billy and myself have a good ol' gab. Seriously, it's quite the gab fest. We talk everything from Spiderverse to why Tommorowland isn't doing so well at the box office to the (apparently) booming drag queen industry. 
Plus we have yet another give away (at this point it's becoming a habit we can't kick). Be sure to be listening carefully to find out how you could win a double pass to Oz Comicon Melbourne. All entries to be sent to christof@geekofoz. 
Just a reminder, like a translucent green brain slug we need your juicy, juicy, ideas in order to survive! Please rate and review us on Itunes or drop us your feed back and ideas below. Every comment is appreciated. Alternatively if you have a geeky event you would like us to plug on the podcast (we can't promise anything but we'll try our best to give it a shout out) feel free to le…
