Kung Fu Hustle – Review

June 28, 2006

The Mask as a karate movie, complete with faces that squash inwards and necks that twist like barber poles. Looney Tunes taken to its most chop-sockey extreme.

The Corpse Bride – Review

June 23, 2006

Onibi – The Fire Within – Review

June 23, 2006

April 28, 2006

What is a simple, innocent comment one era becomes unintentional porn the next. An entire page of panels with Joker talking about pulling Batman’s boner.
