Movies

Ride Along 2

Ride Along 2 – Ride Along 2 is the sequel to the 2014 Ride Along, and now Ben having finally become a real police officer after the first movie, joins his detective soon to be brother-in-law in an investigation into a drug ring in Miami. As they follow the clues, they soon discover that a well-respected businessman is actually the violent leader of a drug cartel with his drugs supplying all the way up to Atlanta. Stars Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, Benjamin Bratt, Olivia Munn, Bruce McGill, and Tika Sumpter. Rated PG-13.

Krampus

Krampus – After a dysfunctional family (like most families) clashes together during a family Christmas celebration and ruins the Christmas spirit for young Max; Krampus, the anti-Santa Claus complete with horns and hooves, arrives to punish those who don’t believe in Christmas and in Santa. Krampus uses himself and other holiday icons to attack the family and the family must fight together to be able to survive. The Krampus looks like it wasn’t screened for critics at all (or at least until last-minute) which is never a good sign. Plus it’s described as a horror comedy but almost every trailer shows never shows any of the comedy. Stars Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Emjay Anthony, Stefania LaVie Owen, Krista Stadler, and Gavin Norton. Rated PG-13.

TV

Hot in Cleveland: Season 6

Cartoon/Anime

Space Brothers: Collection 8

Space Brothers: Collection 8 – FINALLY the last Space Brothers collection with the end of the sub from Sentai Filmworks with episodes 88 – 99. Apparently even though this has continued over 8 volumes, this still isn’t the end of the series and the manga continues on past where the anime ends since it’s still in serialization. Not Rated.

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis -The Complete Series

Rage of Bahamut: Genesis -The Complete Series – Rage of the Bahamut: Genesis is based off of the card battle mobile phone game Rage of the Bahamut (which bad timing but seems to have had it’s Engligh version shut down in February 2016) but seems to expound on the story quite a bit. The bounty hunter Favaro Leone accidentally makes a contract with a demoness on the run from heaven which gives him a tail of his own, they have to fight together to have her return to hell, though she has the goal of awakening the monster Bahamut. Rage of the Bahamut: Genesis has a fun cast with Ian Sinclair and Chris Rager as the main leads. We haven’t finished this series yet but we’ve liked what we’ve watched so far. Not Rated.

Kamisama Kiss: Season 2

Kamisama Kiss: Season 2 – The second season of Kamisama Kiss and one of Funimation’s first Broadcast Dubs. Nanami continues to try to do her work as a human Land God, but someone from Tomoe’s past is up to no good. Along with trouble on Kurama’s mountain, this new enemy will even force Nanami to the underworld. This was a great addition to Kamisama Kiss and we really enjoyed it. Definitely worth taking a look at if you liked the first season or Fruits Basket. Not Rated.

Garo: The Animation: Season 1, Part One

Garo: The Animation: Season 1, Part One – An anime series based on a massive series of tokusatsu (think sentai type series) live action TV series and movies, that now has finally gotten the first in a couple anime spin-off series.

Earl and Fairy - Complete Series

Earl and Fairy – Complete Series– Earl and Fairy is based on a series of light novels but is probably more well-known in the United States as The Earl and The Fairy manga series licensed by Viz as part of their Shojo Beat brand. This is a Japanese sub only from Discotek but if you’re a fan of the manga, this will be worth checking out. Not Rated.
