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

hbk_dvd_reviewShawn Michaels: From The Vault
The first and best HBK DVD set.

by The Gimmick
He is known as the show stopper. The main event. The icon that can still go. He is Shawn Michaels; “The Heart Break Kid” and he lives up to all those monikers and then some. For ten years he delighted audiences everywhere with his high flying style of wrestling. Meeting and defeating some the greats the industry has ever seen. Then a career ending back injury grounded the legend in his tracks for over five years. Then, just as his millions of fans thought they would never see him in action again, he returned. And he returned with a vengeance. All this is chronicled in a DVD entitled Shawn Michaels: From the Vault. (Man, I hope Shawn reads this and thanks me for building him up like that.) I’m only kidding! He needs no false praise. The praise he gets, he deserves. And what we get ... Read On

I got a copy of the WWE DVD “WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony 2004” and I was thoroughly impressed. I did have high hopes for this one considering I am a HUGE fan of the older style of wrestling. Before it was released I had heard the extras for this 2 DVD set were right up my ally, and right up my ally they were, but I’ll get to that a little later. For those of you who don’t know what I’m on about (lets face it, it happens more often than not), I’ll explain what this title is all about:... Read On
Classic Review: Wrestlemania VI
Steroid abusers collide!

by The Gimmick
Wrestlemania VI was the first Wrestlemania I was unable to see on TV. Network Ten here in Melbourne had lost the rights to show WWF TV by this stage. So I had to wait impatiently for my local video library to get it in. About 3 months after it had been screened in the states I finally got a copy and I couldn’t wait to see it.... Read On

ToonlogoWrestling Quote of the Month

"We had a great response from it." Greg Gagne, (with a straight face!) speaking about "The Team Challenge Series", on The Spectacular Legacy of the AWA DVD.

Everyone else on the DVD gives "The Team Challenge Series" a far more accurate assesment: It was a massive failure and remains a laughingstock to this day.

What is the main reason you watch wrestling?
Hoping to see good quality matches
The crazy storylines and/or characters
Blood and violence
The sexy women or men
A combination of any of the above

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
