May 2015 reviews

 

I managed to review a few more things this month than last month, but I still feel like I'm dragging. I tried using manga to break myself out of whatever this funk is. I don't think it worked - I keep turning to TV instead of books.

 

Anyway, this month I reviewed 3 books, 2 manga volumes, 1 short story collection, 4 movies, and 1 TV series.

 

The best things I read and reviewed:

 

The best things I watched and reviewed:

  • Coraline (movie) - 3.5-stars. Based on Neil Gaiman's book of the same title.
  • Maoyu (anime TV series) - 3 stars. Yes, I know 3 stars is pushing it, but I watched some awful TV in May. I'd probably have liked this one more if I hadn't already seen and loved Spice & Wolf, which did a lot of the same things this series did, only better.

 

Grim, don't let the DVD art fool you, Robot Revolution is a terrible movie. It has a grand total of two visible robots, none of which look like the one in the artwork, and the bulk of it is more like a very boring zombie movie.
