Remnants & Relics. Buttonhole *Special* Feature

Welcome dear reader to Remnants & Relics, the first in an ongoing series of features looking back at various aspects of yesterday's video games. This series is one that I'd hoped to kick off many months ago, but I just haven't had the time to do it justice, until now. So consider this your opportunity to put on your best pair or rose-tinted glasses, open up a luke-warm can of clichés and prepare to hop aboard the way-back-machine.... It came from beyond two dimensions! -A Look Back at Isometric Gaming-

ACMI Day Tripper

Welcome Buttonhole readers to another feature that is so choc-full of goodness that I've divided it into several sections. The top half is about the Indy video games showcased at ACMI. The bottom half is about the Pixar exhibit. It's ridiculously long and all terribly interesting to read, so you may as well read it in two halves, or just the parts that interest you. After reading about the ACMI exhibits on their website and getting more than a little excited, I decided to make the perilous trek to inner Melbourne. With time on my side and money stuffed in my pocket I ventured forth to the train station. Once on board I passed the time by staring out the window, reading a volume of Dark Horse's Concrete and snacking on tasty fruit. Arriving at Flinders St, I wandered around until inevitably finding my way out of the rat-maze like station.

Classic Comic-book Review. Kraven's Last Hunt

"Here lies Spider-Man - Slain by the Hunter" So reads the grave of one of histories greatest superheros. "But he's not dead, is he? What happened to everyone's favourite web-slinger? Spidey seems to be alive and well now, what with his three movie deal and a string of monthly Marvel comic-book titles to his name, so why was he buried six feet under? The year is 1987. The company is Marvel. The character is Sergei Kravinov also known as 'Kraven the Hunter.' Back in the 60's Stan and Steve (Lee and Ditko, respectively) churned out a heap of cool villains for the title "Amazing Spider-Man." Doctor Octopus, The Cham

Viva La Bam Season 1Viva La Bam Season 1
More fun than 56 shots of peach schnapps!

by Fazz
Viva La Bam! Oh how I’d lusted after seeing this show. After an agonizing wait in which our very own Gimmick had this DVD on order for some months, it finally arrived. Only to be followed a week later by yet another copy for our viewing pleasure. Well, it all worked out in the end… Viva La Bam is the latest brainchild from MTV and CKY/Jackass star Bam Margera. He brings back the characters we all love, such as Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo, Raab Himself, Jenn Rivell, Rake Yohn, Phil, April and the legendary Don Vito. Also along for the ride are Tony Hawk, Compton-ass Terry, Bucky Lasek, The Bloodhound Gang and Australia’s own Jason Ellis. This DVD set includes 2 disks. One with all eight uncensored episodes from season 1, and another with all the bonus crap, such as some hilarious ... Read On
Revenge of the Geeks
Star Wars Episode III opening night!

by Ando
The day we had all be waiting for, as dedicated Star Wars geeks, was finally upon us. The opening of the final Star Wars movie of all time - Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Man what a movie. Talk about doing things in reverse. If you're after a happy ending, you are out of luck. This movie is very reminisent of Empire Strikes Back in its mood and vibe - and the whole leaving you hanging at the end thing. However, it was very powerful and well written. ... Read On
Star Wars goes to the small screen

Bad Santa DVD Review
Ho! Ho! Ho!

by Hillelman
It took AGES for this to make it out in Australia, but that's not really anything new is it? Bad Santa is now available here on DVD and I'm very glad of that because it rocks. If you like your comedy pitch black then this is one movie you will want to check out right away. However, the easily (or even not-so-easily) offended and those hoping for more "traditional" Christmas-themed fare most definitely ought to give it a miss. In the end though, it actually turns out to be quite touching.... Read On
Shaun of the Dead DVD Review
Beer. Video games. Zombies. Sounds like Buttonhole to me.

by Hillelman
This movie was billed as “A romantic comedy. With zombies.” That alone was enough to make me keen to see it. I’d also heard and read plenty of praise for the British film, which seemed to take forever to reach Australian shores. When I finally did see Shaun of the Dead, I was pleased to find that I enjoyed it even more than I’d expected to. Now that the movie is available on DVD I can watch it whenever I want!... Read On
Hero DVD Review
Mugwai asks Jet Li "Did you ever know that you're my hero?"

by Mugwai
This is a beautiful movie. A cerebral experience, for me so much that I felt guilty for watching any mainstream blockbuster film afterwards. I’m not meaning to be poignant here, though this is not just an incredible martial arts movie and that it is. Behind the almost operatic and visually dramatic fight sequences, is an incredible tale of honour, love, passion and wisdom with the age old proverb – the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few....

Alien vs. Predator
A review from someone who liked it!

by Tyz
I know that I will be howled down by many people for this – but I thought this was a great film. I think it is a good example of what a fan can do if he has an original idea, and is given the resources to bring that idea to life. Director Paul Anderson is a self confessed fan of the Alien and Predator franchises, and blends the mythology of both films beautifully, as well as supplying some great action.... Read On
Star Wars Episode 3 Trailer Available
New Longer trailer is now online!

Hey force fans. It's May - a little over 2 weeks to go before the unveiling of episode 3 - Revenge of the Sith. Can't wait! For those who can't help but spoil it for themselves and see some more of the movie. You can view the new soundtrack trailer. There's some really juicy stuff in there.... Read On

Hellboy: Director's Cut (3 Disc Edition)
DVD Review

by Tyz
There is not a big price difference between Hellboy – The Director’s Cut and the basic one disc package. For an extra ten bucks you get a another two discs worth of special features, a mini-comic, a reproduction of Rasputin’s journal, a limited edition “Senitype” and ten minutes of extra footage....

Jersey Girl
Kevin Smith gets all "grown up"

by Hillelman
Ah, Mister Kevin Smith; the film writer/director and comic book author/fanboy geek. He’s a favourite amongst many of my generation, including myself as a matter of fact. Kevin’s work is not for everyone though and his detractors seem to be almost as passionate as his fans. Although Jersey Girl is quite different to his other movies in various ways, it is still very much a Kevin Smith film at heart. There is far less in the way of swearing and dick and fart jokes here though, so maybe even some non-fans could dig it.... Read On
Jackass The Movie
Fazz's Haggard review inspired me to post this old one

Remember the class clown? When you were a kid in school (or, indeed, if you still are a kid in school) chances are you can recall this one dude who constantly did stupid things to make everyone laugh because, basically, that was all he was able to do.... Read On
Spider-Man 2. DVD Review
Does whatever a spider can.

by Hillelman
The second Spidey movie has more of everything than the first. More impressive action sequences, more romance, more humour and more of that fiery, sexy lady herself; Aunt May (Rosemary Harris)! And Mary Jane (Kirsten Dunst) is in there too... The plot picks up not long after the events of the original film. Peter is now in college and he's even more of a dorky loser than ever. You know those days when nothing you do seems to work out and absolutely everything seems to go wrong?... Read On
X-Men 2. DVD Review
Was doing superhero flicks, so figured I'd add this one too

by Hillelman
Yet another in the recent, seemingly endless, string of movies based on characters from Marvel Comics (and many, many others are on the way) the X-Men franchise has a fanatical fan base on par with followers of the Star Wars, Star Trek or Lord of the Rings series.... Read On
Team America - F#@k Yeah Animation

This is a little example of the comical genius we've come to expect from the South Park boys. The music is ofcourse by them but the animation is homemade by someone with too much time on their hands....enjoy.... Read On
Haggard
Bam and the boys are at it again...

by Fazz
The first feature-film directed by skateboarder/director/mischief-maker Bam Margera is fast becoming a cult classic. Being a huge fan of Bam’s work I grabbed myself a copy. For years Bam and gang have been releasing short films based loosely around Bam’s brother’s band CKY, and usually feature excellent skateboarding, music and general bad behavior that was far to hot to show on MTV’s “Jackass” (another Bam Margera brainchild in conjunction with Jeff Tremaine and Johnny Knoxville)....

American Splendor. DVD Review
"Real life is pretty complex stuff"

by Hillelman
American Splendor's (that's how American's spell splendour) superb opening sequence grabbed my full attention from the get go. The picture might be (much like its subject matter) not to everyone's taste. But enough elements came together for me to find it highly entertaining and thoroughly absorbing viewing.... Read On

ToonlogoDVD Movies Quote of the Month

Toby (Kevin Zegers): "Beauty is relative." Bree (Felicity Huffman): "Not my relatives."

From Transamerica. While Reese Witherspoon was superb in Walk the Line, Huffman's astounding performance as Bree definitely should have scored her the 'Best Actress' Oscar.

Only Yesterday. Anime Review

The problem with having favourite films is that every time I watch another Studio Ghibli film it becomes my new favourite. It kind of renders the word 'favourite' meaningless when every Studio Ghibli film takes my breath away. Still, I can't complain about being thoroughly entertained by this whimsical and insightful film, "Only Yesterday". This gem was directed by Isao Takahata, well known for his anime film Grave of the Fireflies. Although Only Yesterday is a light hearted film that ambles along at a leisurely pace, it still manages to explore themes such as love, work, family relationship struggles, following your dreams and country versus city living. In the film, the main character Taeko decides to take a working vacation in the country, getting away from her office bound job and unexpectedly starts t

Speed Grapher V1. Anime Review

Well, "I don't like it" was my initial feeling when viewing this Anime for the first time. Subsequent viewings haven't changed my views a great deal. Nothing really stands out as being absolute shit but it seems that this series tries too hard. It's almost like they were more interested in creating something 'edgy' and confronting but sadly forgot to include an even remotely palatable story. The hero of this particular piece is a bloke called Tatsumi Saiga. Tatsumi is a photographer and a veteran war journalist for whom taking photos has become somewhat of a fetish. Although he seems to have become jaded - nothing is worth wasting his film on - that is, at least until he stumbles across an exclusive club for the mega rich
