Despicable Me

I'm sure many of you are wondering what has suddenly happened to ODU? well before I start my review of the movie despicable me lets just say Hiroki has been banned till next year, we thought he was getting a little too crazy :). Now for those of you that don't know me I'm the resident movie buff.

Now onto the review so today I watched the movie despicable me and I LOVED IT, I haven't seen such a funny animated movie in years. But I suppose you shouldn't expect less from actors such as Steve Carrell (Evan Almighty), Jason Segel (How I met your mother), Julie Andrews (Sound of music) and Russell Brand.

So that I don't ruin the movie I will just summarise the plot. The movie is about Super-villain Gru who wants to steal the moon so that he can be the best villain, but he can't until he gets a loan from the Evil bank. Unfortunately they will not give him a loan until he retrieves the shrink ray, so to retrieve the shrink ray he discovers he needs the help of 3 little orphaned girls who he adopts.

Now for those of you who finally can control the power of analysing everything as a result of high school English, the movie will keep most people entertained and of course there are parts of the movie where you may think duh!! that was obviously gonna happen, but overall it was an entertaining movie which was funny to watch and it kept me hooked even though the credits.

Tosaka Rin 1/7 Scale PVC Figurine

Hot on the heels of the recent release of Saber - Triumphant Excalibur, Good Smile Company has now announced they will be releasing a Tosaka Rin figurine next year.

The proto-type of this figurine was around since last year, but Good Smile has revealed very little until recently.

Proto-type has no command spell on Rin's right hand
When these images were released, I really hoped that this will be on the "Coming Soon" list. As expected of Good Smile, the level of detail on this figurine is nothing short of fantastic. Fast forward to 2010, and Fate Stay Night fans should be happy about this release. I know I am, and will be purchasing this when it comes out.

Even though this figure is said to be released in May 2011, as with Good Smile, I'm not expecting it to be released until around August 2011. The reason why I say that is that Saber Lily and Saber- Triumphant Excalibur were both delayed by a few months. I don't really mind waiting as long as the final product lives up to expectations...which I know it will.

Command Spell visible

Another feature of this figurine is that the hand is also interchangeable. You can have Rin hold the pendent as in the image above, she can have the gems as well as the Azoth sword. I prefer to have the pendent, as that is synonymous with Rin.

MG Deathscythe Hell first preproduction shot

Fresh from my HTC Desire... sexiness I found this shot while blog surfing on my phone my girlfriend's internet connection being cut left me with this option only but hey I like this more cellphone blows will be on their way once I get the ropes of this app.

EDIT 4/12/10:

Now I'm really digging these wings. They extend and can be posed upwards for more dynamic posing

And of course the shroud mode!

Iron Man anime

I am currently nine episodes into this anime. I have to give credit to Marvel for this one because to impress an otaku like myself with an American superhero turned anime series is a pretty mean feat. Apart from the weird Mista Starku (Japanese people attempting to say Mr Stark) this series actually rocks! Okay without spoiling too much the basic plot is that Stark is ready for retirement and is handpicking a task force of Iron Men to wear the Iron Man Dio mass production suit.

As part of the reform of Stark Industries, Tony Stark begins a plan to build arc reactors all around the world to provide the next generation with an environmentally sustainable free energy source. The first nation to have this system installed is Japan. It is in Japan that Stark has to face the challenges of a public questioning his motives and at the same time protect them from harms way.

I love Stark's car its fast, has weapon systems, auto pilot and also a spare fully operational Iron Man suit
