This month Marco goes full Godzilla, and in between doing monster noises and stomping around the office he got to write about not one, not two but THREE Godzilla films from recent years. Also featured are Transistor, a selection of TV work by one Masaaki Yuasa, a chapbook by Schlock-featured writer Angela Slatter and a local artist by the name of Fastidju. Oh, and some guys are remaking the intro to Ghost in the Shell? Crazy!
Marco has a bumper POP CULTURE DESTRUCTION this month, as he chews on NOAH, JODOROWSKY’S DUNE and even some surely perverted Japanese cartoon or another. And that’s before Teodor butts in the reviewing of a pair of short story collections, courtesy of Chômu Press. Also – donut cats! Everybody loves donut cats, right?
Marco mourns the finale of his favourite cartoon show with opinions on the likes of the 2014 Robocop remake, Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation and graphic novella Genesis, as well as an admission of his love for The Rock. Not that we blame him, mind. We love that guy too!
POP CULTURE DESTRUCTION returns for 2014, with Marco’s takes on Thor: The Dark World, the BBC’s Sherlock, the latest Mogwai album, and more! Also talk on THREE (count them!) manga series and what he’s been up to during the last month. SIGH. To think we assumed there was a valid reason for this column being basically a month late…
As the year comes to a close, Schlock Magazine takes a look at… no, wait, Marco is taking this look. Schlock Magazine actually distances itself from this article and the opinions contained within.
November? NoIamnotgoingtodoathingfuckyouvember, more like. Marco heads to the stars with Gravity and MirroMoon EP before delving into “earthier” matters with Masters of Sex and Sex Criminals. Guess what’s on his mind before you work your way through DESTRUCTION NEWS, win a prize!
I am writing this in an aluminium tube many miles above the ground that’s taking me all the way to Amsterdam. For work, not pleasure, natch.…
Man of Steel! Men (and Women) of Scrounged Equipment! Man of… Serving Fellow Men? Pop Culture Destruction insists on your having only the freshest and finest of relevant review goodness. Accept no substitutes!
Pop Culture Destruction goes all ACTION and DESTRUCTION this month as it features summer blockbusters (Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness), violence simulators (Far Cry 3) and a comic that’s actually really good (COPRA). Also, 300 is getting a sequel? Why is that even happening?
Marco returns to the reviewing soapbox, and ends up waxing all goddamn nostalgic. There’s also talk on a Wong Kar-wai film (Ashes of Time), an Iain Banks novel (Transition), a Joe Casey comic (Sex) and a bunch of animated gifs. And more!
