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.

"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?

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

Buttonhole loves movies. Buttonhole loves comics. Buttonhole loves movies based on comics! X-Men and X-Men 2 are easily two of the biggest and best of the comic based movies. We'll be working with our fine friends at 20th Century Fox to bring you coverage of the upcomming third installment in the franchise, starting with the official information regarding the film's plot and other details that I have included right here, for your viewing pleasure. As well as that, you can click the link at the bottom of this article and watch the latest X-Men 3 preview footage. So, sharpen your claws and get to reading, my fellow X-Men fans. Mutants unite!

In X-MEN: THE LAST STAND, the climax of the "X-Men" motion picture trilogy, a "cure" for mutancy threatens to alter the course of history. For the first time, mutants have a choice: retain their uniqueness, though it isolates and alienates them, or give up their powers and become human. The opposing viewpoints of mutant leaders Charles Xavier, who preaches tolerance, and Magneto, who believes in the survival of the fittest, are put to the ultimate test - triggering the war to end all wars.

Within the framework of an epic, action-packed story, X-MEN: THE LAST STAND raises issues with strong contemporary relevance: Is conformity an antidote to prejudice? Is it cowardice to give up individuality to fit in and avoid persecution? Do ends justify means? Is great power a blessing or a curse?

X-MEN: THE LAST STAND reunites all the stars of the first two X-Men films: Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Halle Berry as Storm, Ian McKellen as Magneto, Patrick Stewart as Xavier, Famke Janssen as Jean Grey, Anna Paquin as Rogue , Rebecca Romijn as Mystique, James Marsden as Cyclops and Shawn Ashmore as Iceman. Reprising their X2 roles are Aaron Stanford as Pyro and Daniel Cudmore as Colossus.

Kelsey Grammer joins the X-MEN: THE LAST STAND cast as Dr. Henry McCoy, also known as Beast. McCoy is a highly intelligent geneticist, a mutant endowed with superhuman agility and physical prowess. As the subject of one of his own experiments, McCoy mutated further, growing blue, bestial fur.

Vinnie Jones plays the unstoppable strongman Juggernaut, and Ellen Page portrays Kitty Pride, also known as Shadowcat, a young woman possessing the ability to pass through solid matter by "phasing." Ben Foster plays Warren Worthington III, or Angel, whose bird-like wings endow him with the gift of flight. Michael Murphy is Warren Worthington, Sr., Angel's father, whose distress over his son's mutant powers leads him to spearhead the "cure."

Also joining the cast are Dania Ramirez as Callisto, whose highly attuned senses allow her to locate and assess the power of other mutants; Eric Dane as Multiple Man, who can create exact physical replicas of himself; Cameron Bright as the power dampener Leech; Olivia Williams as Dr. Moira McTaggert, one of the world's leading authorities on genetic mutation and Xavier's longtime colleague and confidante; and Shohreh Aghdashloo as geneticist Dr.Kavita Rao.

Brett Ratner, who established a motion picture franchise with "Rush Hour," and expanded the "Silence of the Lambs" franchise with "Red Dragon," directs X-MEN: THE LAST STAND.

The producers are Lauren Shuler Donner and Ralph Winter, who also produced the first two X-Men films. Avi Arad and comics legend and X-Men co-creator Stan Lee are executive producers. The screenplay is by Zak Penn & Simon Kinberg.

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
