    The Grandmaster Blu-ray and DVD Release Coming March 4 from Anchor Bay Entertainment and the Weinstein Company

    GrandmasterThere have been several films featuring Ip Man, the legendary martial artist, in recent years. Donnie Chen has played the Wing Chun master twice since 2008, a role he claims he will never reprise. Dennis To took a turn in the 2010 film The Legend Is Born—Ip Man, and before him, Yu Chenghui assumed the role in The Legend of Bruce Lee. Now comes The Grandmaster, released in China in 2013 and available this year in the U.S. thanks to the Weinstein Company.

    Directed by Wong Kar-wai, a favorite of eastern and western film festivals, the movie is a taut epic—is that an oxymoron?—tracing Ip’s life from the mid-1930s to his death in 1972. A master of the kung fu style known as Wing Chun (literally, “spring chant”), Ip, played with a humble confidence by Tony Leung, defeats Gong Yutian, a martial arts master from Northern China, in 1936, earning the distinction of Southern master. He also fights Gong’s mysterious daughter, Gong Er—and loses.

    The two stay in touch through letters until war drains Ip’s fortune, kills two of his children, and forces him to Hong Kong in 1950 in search of work. He lands at a kung fu school, where he earns a job by out-fighting the headmaster. (In one of the few light moments, Ip asks the headmaster if he has eaten lunch. Yes, the headmaster says. Smiling slyly, Ip replies, “I did not want it to go to waste.” A single blow later, the lunch makes its cameo.)

    In Hong Kong, Ip reconnects with Gong Er, who has become a doctor. She tells him about her father, who was murdered by his Northern successor, Ma San, and her subsequent vengeance against Ma: she killed him by shoving him against a speeding train. The fight left her wounded, and she turned to opium in 1940, dying in 1952 from an apparent overdose. Ip focuses on his teaching after that, bringing Wing Chun many followers, “including,” we learn in the movie’s coda, “his most famous student, Bruce Lee,” who appears for two seconds as a fuzzy-haired adolescent.

    The Grandmaster is a gorgeous film, a study in cinematic detail. In a fight scene in the rain, for instance, the water dripping from the brim of Ip’s hat is rendered in poetic close-up. The fight between Ip and Gong Er has the tenderness of foreplay, but other battles have some absurdities, such as when Ip and an opponent kick opposite sides of a rickshaw and crush it. This is the draw, however, of kung fu movies: stylized violence, no different from Die Hard or The Fast and the Furious, except using natural weapons, the hands and feet, instead of Uzis or 1969 Camaros. In these fantasy elements, Wong Kar-wai delivers.

    Where he misfires is Ip’s reunion with Gong Er: he makes it too compelling. There had been hints of friction between her father and his man Ma, and when she reveals what happened, we see the toll those events took. Zhang Ziyi, whom I had only ever seen in Rush Hour 2 as a remorseless assassin, shows us her range, making Gong Er not so tortured that she can’t get stuff done (like taking out her father’s killer). Compared to this bloodlust, Ip Man’s wanderings provide little conflict.

    In its sweep and cinematography, its pitch-perfect acting and thrilling, if occasionally risible, battle scenes, The Grandmaster is perhaps the best account of the life of Ip Man, a figure important to both eastern and western cultures.

    Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground All-New DVD Collection from the Slugterra Animated Series Coming March 4, 2014 from Shout! Factory Kids and Nerd Corps Entertainment!

    Slugterra DVD

    I had the opportunity this week to review a collection of Slugterra episodes. Having never heard of the show before, I thought it would be a good excuse to spend a morning watching cartoons. For the uninitiated, here is the official description that accompanied the DVD:

    “Slugterra is an epic sci-fi comedy adventure set deep underground, where the ammo’s alive and only the quick survive! In this luminous, high-tech, underground world, every cavern holds a new adventure, a new battle and weird little slugs to be discovered.

    In this collection, join our hero Eli Shane, his gang of slugslingers, and his best slug buddy Burpy on their numerous adventures Whether they are thwarting a mad scientist, facing an Ice Ogre or questing after fabled treasure, Eli and the rest of Shane Gang prove they are ready to slug it out!”

    Well, that sounds exciting, if not a little familiar, right?

    I decided to do a little research in order to really understand what I was about to watch. Slugterra is a Canadian/American animated series that premiered on Disney XD Canada in September 2012, and on Disney XD in October of the same year. They’ve aired three seasons so far, and a Canadian film is slated for Spring 2014. Heroes of the Underground is the 4th volume in the Slugterra DVD collection series. The series has spawned numerous online games and tons of merchandise, mostly targeted at what I would guess to be boys aged 6-11.

    The story itself is pretty formulaic. Our hero is Eli Shane, who was sent to the underground world of Slugterra at the age of 15, for what purpose I still do not know. Once there, Eli meets the standard cast of characters: the plucky girl, the gentle giant, and the comic relief. Together, they make up the Shane Gang. The resident villain is Dr. Thaddeus Blakk. In Eli’s apparent quest to be the best slugslinger of them all, he will do battle with Dr. Blakk and his thugs, er, slugs, as well as duke it out with other slugslinging challengers.

    The slugs in question are kind of cute, actually. There are nearly 50 types of named slugs throughout the series. Each one possesses a ‘special power’ such as Fire, Ice, Electricity, Water, Air, and so forth. Characters going into battle take their slug of choice, load it into what looks like a shotgun shell, and fire it from a larger blaster. Once they have been shot, the force of the blast causes the slug’s power to take control, transforming it into a powerful force to be reckoned with. If you have been treating your slugs nicely and taking good care of them (letting them sleep in a tube sock on your bed like Eli) then the discharged slug will return to you, or at least to your home. If Dr. Blakk gets a hold of slugs, he uses ‘dark water’ to transform the slugs into Ghouls, of which there are 20 different types.

    And….that’s it. That’s the entire point of the show.

    I wish I could say more, but with the absence of a true story arch or semblance of a plot, it was a struggle to hold my attention.  The CGI looked really good. The landscape and look of the underground world and all of its caverns was actually beautifully designed. The animation of the characters and slugs themselves reminded me of the style Disney employed for the movie and TV series Lilo & Stitch. The show was a little darker than I expected, with regards to the violence. It had moments where it wanted to be the sort of show an adult could enjoy watching, while trying to maintain the expectations of a Disney children’s series. And with the idea that characters must collect, train, and battle their slugs, it is hard not to make comparisons to the juggernaut that is Pokemon. Though, given the choice, I would take Slugterra over Pokemon in a heartbeat.

    Ten minutes into the first episode and I was asking myself, “Wait. What am I watching?” But then again, what do I know? I am not a boy aged 6-11. Clearly, with everything that I have seen online, the series has a large and loyal fan base. Just because it didn’t click with me doesn’t mean it isn’t the bees knees for someone else. After all, it definitely had enough action sequences to keep a young child entertained. And the slugs, with their funny expressions and awkward teeth, are sure to be all the rage for little girls of the same demographic. If slugs were that cute in real life, I might collect a few myself! Be sure to check out the Bonus features which include a ‘Draw Your Own Slugs’ segment. The kiddos will have fun with that one.

    Get ready to Slug it Out on March 4, 1014 when Shout! Factory Kids in collaboration with Nerd Corps Entertainment, releases Slugterra: Heroes of the Underground 5-episode DVD collection.

    Episodes Include:

    • Snowdance

    On Thursday, March 6, 2014, Southern California’s CAPS, the Comic Art Professional Society, will launch an ongoing series of eBay auctions of original comic art.

Sharon has been battling a debilitating brain tumor for some time; after an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is currently at home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicine that costs more than the Sakai’s insurance covers. 100% of the proceeds of these auctions will go directly to Stan and Sharon Sakai to help pay their ongoing medical expenses.

    Known for his exquisite work with female characters, J. Scott Campbell created this wonderful ink drawing to benefit Sharon & Stan Sakai in the CAPS auction.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier Featurette Reveals For Whom The Winter Solider is Working

    February 11, 2014 by  
    Filed under Comic Books, Everything Else, Movies, Top Stories

    Winter Soldier

    While the comic book version of the story had Bucky Barnes, Captain America’s sidekick during World War II, found and revived by the Russians, it appears that in the new film the Winter Solider is serving new masters.

    According to the interviews in the featurette below, Bucky is working for Hydra in the new film, the Nazi-like terrorist organization often at odds with the heroes of the Marvel universe.

    This fits in perfectly with two other bits of information. We know that Thomas Kretschmann has signed on to play Hydra founder Baron Von Strucker in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Rumors persist that the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, two prominent Avengers set to be introduced in the 2nd Avengers movie, will be working for Hydra when that movie begins. Since Hydra is already showing up in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, that also lends credence to the rumor that Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver will actually debut in a post-credits sequence in the new Captain America film.

    Here is the featurette. You can also catch a very brief glimpse of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and oft-times love interest of Captain America, Sharon Carter, in the clips.
