This morning on Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced a whole slew of new games for their 3DS that will all be coming out this summer or earlier. The first of which being a (finally) announced release date for the new Animal Crossing game titled, Animal Crossing: New Leaf which is due out June 9th…
One of Nintendoʼs first major games to be released after turning from manufacturing playing cards into a fully fledged video game company, Donkey Kong was created by Shigeru Miyamoto and is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. The character is still highly loved among Nintendo fans and after all these years, he continue to star in some of the biggest games for the companyʼs consoles.

In February the HKFAA released their list of nominations and in April they released their winners. So what do I have to say about all this?
Better late than never?
I was really looking forward to covering this in my blog this year but I got pulled away from it at just the right time. Still, with no mention on the Spill thus far, and limited coverage on the net, for many of you this will be so fresh that it might as well have happened last night. I found the…
Remakes are pretty much common practice for Hollywood these days. If it's not classic horror films they're adapting then it's foreign movies. Asian films get remade the most (The Ring and The Departed are just two examples) so it was only a matter of time before the tables were turned. It's finally happened with Connected, an adaptation of the Chris Evans/Jason Statham…
While, admittedly, my inclusion of this title is based partially on nostalgia (along with a couple of other entries on this list), having just finished playing through all of these games again, I was surprised to find that Diddy Kong Racing still holds up extremely well. While, on the surface, the game comes across as just another Mario Kart-esque racer, it has this sense of adventure to it that no…
This is a secondary blog that is basically used as a reference to my huge in depth series of essays surrounding Asian Cinema. This is a part of the Hong Kong research paper, looking even more into the John Woo classic The Killer. To see the original essay, please click here.

Prof. IronMan is here to give you yet another look in the fantastic world of cinema in Cutting Into the Scene.
This session will be a bit special as it will be divided in 2 parts. I have always been a fan of Asian cinema ever since I saw my first Anime so many years ago. As I got older, I discovered a whole new realm beyond those given out by Hollywood... Asia. It was filled with intense history and culture so different to the one I… Continue
I viewed Jason Staatham's latest installment in the Crank series this weekend, and man had to leave because the subject matter was too much for my kid. It was definitely non-stop action and kind of quirky in a disturbing way. I mean the premise of it wins kudos for originality, a fiend has taken his heart and he escapes and has so many hours to get it back. How lucky he is to know somebody who not only knows all about his problem but can put his heart back in his body. It's got lots of skin and… Continue
John Woo’s production company Lion Rock Entertainment is developing a big screen sequel to the classic 1992 Hong Kong action film Hard Boiled. Screenwriters Jeremy Passmore (Special) and Andre Fabrizio (upcoming John Carpenter film…Continue

Imagine this: a remake of one of the GREATEST monster mashes EVER... I am of course referring to...
KING KONG VS GODZILLA!!!
Just think, if this was done with love and care for the original, it could be the GREATEST THING EVER!!! I was really bored once and I even came up with a plot for it. I decided to scrap the original one (for those of you who havn't seen the original and think a scrapping of the old plot will ruin it, the old… Continue
Word's out that a remake of Moby Dick is in the works. I don't feel all that confident in it. So it had me thinking about other remakes, including reboots, such as comic book films. So here's my immediate opinion.
This is here because it's from a time when remakes of Japanese horror films were original and not a used-up gimmick. This movie popped out of the dark and scared the shit out of… Continue
So I went back through my collection of DVD's, watched a few movies on Pay-Per-View, and even went to see a few more movies in the Theaters to create this list. Out of per bordom I have decided to create a huge list of the Top 30 Fight Scenes of all time.
Just remember this is my list and its not official, it's all just a matter of opinon. I really hope you Spillers all read it and comment on it, seeing as It took alot of time to create this....Let's… Continue
