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 galore! Here's Buttonhole's third article about X3. If you haven't already, you can take a look at the previous two either by going into our DVD Movies section, or by clicking for the first one here and the second one here (I took them off the main page as they were dragging the load times down a bit too much). We've now got some more tasty pics for you, once again from 20th Century Fox. We've also been informed that the official Australian website for X-Men: The Last Stand is now online.

Here is the link to the Aussie X3 site:

Rightio then, time for some more photo fun!

X-Men 3 Beast
Upside down, Miss Jane. (Man, a Mr. Squiggle reference - I'm really showing my age now!)
Kelsey Grammer as Dr. Henry McCoy, also known as Beast: Beast is a favourite of mine, from the X-Men comics. In fact, I like him so much that Mugwai gave me a Beast action figure. So, I am most pleased and look forward to seeing him in the new movie.

Dr. McCoy (Beast's real name) is huge, strong, blue, hairy and beast-like (obviously, hence the name) in appearance. But you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, as he also happens to be extremely intelligent.

Kelsey Grammer (from TV's Frasier and "Sideshow Bob" on The Simpsons) may have struck some people as an odd choice to play Beast, but I trully believe it is some excellent casting. They can handle his looks using make-up and special effects, so that shouldn't be an issue. What I dig about it is that Kelsey's distinctive voice fits the character like a glove and we've seen that he can play intellectual types really well.

X-Men 3 Pyro 1
He's the fire starter. Twisted fire starter.
Aaron Stanford as Pyro: Stanford is reprising his role as Pyro, from the previous film. I suspect Pyro might get a bit more screen time in the third one.

Aaron certainly looks the part and I enjoy seeing the cool stuff Pyro can do with his powers.

X-Men 3 group
It takes one to know one.
Group hug: As for the third shot, you can probably tell some things from it, but I don't want to say too much! Seriously, you're better off if I don't spoil all of the goodies before you've even watched the movie.

There you have it.

For all you gamers, I'll have a bit more about the game based on the film, to follow up on the article I already posted here.

Of course, we'll also let you know about any further X-Men III movie info Fox passes on to us.

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
