A week in links (District 9 is out today! version)

Woooo, District 9 is out today!  I'm so hyped to watch it tomorrow, I can't wait!  Ever since I heard about this movie two weeks ago, I've been counting down the days for this.  Man oh man.  The movie pulled an 87% fresh score over at rotten tomatoes, so that's gotta be good! 

Surprisingly this has been something of a slow news week.  Not a whole lot to report, but at least tougeki is around over the weekend.  Other than that, finding good stories has been few and far between.

The Endless Eight debacle has finally ended.  Eight episodes in a row of the same stupid episode…if you want to see how "similar" they are, you can watch all eight in a row, courtesy of this Japanese fellow.

I said it before and I'll say it again, Japanese people make the most insane, robotic things.  The day the robot uprising occurs, it's gonna start over there first, mark my words.  Robotic human corpse shredder, geez…

Melty Blood: Actress Again, the latest installment for the PS2 received a rather dizzying score (6, 7, 7, 6) from famitsu.  Nasu Kinoko, writer for the popular Type / Moon group, isn't too happy about their supposed reasons for such low scores.

    I didn't hear of District 9 until yesterday, but I'm going to go see it today based solely upon part of a commercial I caught. I don't even know what it's about, but it looked cool. Aliens or something.

    Yeah, that's the same reason that hooked me too! You should check out Neil Blomkamp's other stuff too. I read that District 9 is a sort of spin off of another film he wrote, which was also based loosely on the apartheid era of South Africa.
