Hell Girl Fourth Twilight Episode 8: Delivering Vengeance

Review: This episode again starts with all the side characters playing around and then reminiscing on a previous case of revenge. In this case it involved suburban housewives (or I guess they were living in some kind of company compound) pretty much playing petty politics with the Queen of the area making life hell for … Continue reading Hell Girl Fourth Twilight Episode 8: Delivering Vengeance

Last week I reviewed John Wick and despite some sarcasm in the overview, I actually quite enjoyed that film. Enough that I bothered to watch the sequel so how did it fare?

Hell Girl: Fourth Twilight Episode 7: Who’s Fault?

Review: This episode starts very strangely but quickly falls into the usual pattern of meet horrible person doing horrible things leading to tragic results, and someone deciding that some sort of justice is needed.

Hell Girl Episode 5: All About Perspective

Review: This episode contains content that is definitely designed to be confrontational to the viewer. While it starts with the funeral of the three boys they aren't going to leave it there and you the viewer will sit through the flash back as you see precisely how they came to their end. While you won't … Continue reading Hell Girl Episode 5: All About Perspective

Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 9

Review: Finally a second witch shows up and finally Izetta gets an actual taste of defeat. It would be nice if this meant that some of her naiveté will now wear off and she will actually deal with the reality of being pretty much the only line of defence for a country at war. Of … Continue reading Izetta: The Last Witch Episode 9

91 Days Episode 12

Review: Now the weakest part of this series so far was the diversion from the whole revenge thing to go on a road trip. So, for a final, how about we get a taste of the war going on and then send our main characters on an echoing road trip again only this time it … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 12

91 Days Episode 11

Review: Turns out we have one more episode but this was a highly entertaining episode. The first half was all semi-ironic statements about planning for a future (that we should all know by now was never going to exist) and the second half was metaphorically about burning everything down (though less flames and more knives … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 11

91 Days Episode 10

Review: If I wasn't sure before this episode more or less confirmed that Avilio has no intention of surviving his revenge quest. With that piece of information in mind, his actions throughout the whole series make a lot more sense because at no point could I see what his exit plan was going to be. … Continue reading 91 Days Episode 10
