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

X-Men 3 second logo X-Men: The Last Stand character images

A few additional pics, to further whet your appetite.

Here are a few more X-Men 3, or X-Men: The Last Stand, pics for you to check out. Judging from these shots, they seem to have kept the right feel and style of the movie's look intact, so that's certainly a promising start.

X-Men 3 Angel
Flying away on a wing and a prayer. Who could it be? Believe it or not, its just Angel.
Ben Foster as Warren Worthington III, or Angel: Well, he looks a little bit camp in this particular shot. Kinda reminds me of that "lord of the dance" dickhead, Michael Flatley. Which isn't really a good thing. Don't worry though, he actually looks cool in the movie itself. Check out that preview footage again click here - you get to see Angel and his wings in action and it looks pretty awesome. This image is just hampered by an unfortunate pose really.

X-Men 3 Storm
At least it isn't Catwoman.
Halle Berry as Storm: The Storm character isn't one of the most popular in the comics. In the movies she is even less so. As undeniably beautiful as Halle Berry is, there's just not a lot of love for her version of Storm out there from the X-Men fanboys. That's putting it politely, too.

Adding to this problem were the reports that Halle would only agree to return a third time if her part in the movie was increased, along with her wages.

She's an oscar winner now, you see, and should apparently be treated better because of that. Yeah, whatever.

One thing I'd like to know is, why did Miss Berry's take on Storm have a funny accent that came and went in the first movie and disappeared completely in the second? Oh well, at least it'll allow for more cool special effects when she uses her weather-based magical powers. That stuff always looks great (as does she, despite the white hair, which has been improved to be a lot less goofy looking now).

X-Men 3 Wolverine
There are certain things you'd want to avoid doing when your hands have razor sharp claws jutting out of them.
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine: This guy, on the other hand, is a huge fan favourite. It freaked me and most people out when we were first informed that "The Boy From Oz" was set to portray the ferocious fighting machine that is Wolverine. But Jackman not only pulled it off, he did an outstanding job of it.

There are a few people out there who claim that Hugh's Wolvie sucks, but don't pay any attention to those morons. Wolverine and the way Jackman plays him are the single best thing about the X-Men flicks. Which is high praise indeed, since there's so much else to like about them.

Chicks dig him too. A lot. Many females have told me how sexy he is. I don't know whether or not that means gay dudes also dig him. If there are any homosexual blokes reading this, let me know if you guys find him hot as well. I'm not being a smart arse, I'm genuinely interested in knowing that, just out of sheer curiousity.

Rumours have constantly been around that there will be a spin-off Wolverine movie. I believe that plan is still going to go ahead eventually. The other supposed spin-off is a Magneto film, which would take place in the past, when he was young. I'm really not too sure how good that one would be. I guess it could work, but it sounds rather less appealing to me than a Wolvie flick.

Okay then boys and girls, I hope you've enjoyed looking at these pretty pictures. We'll bring you further X-Men 3 coverage as it comes to hand.

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
