Up a Paddle - Episode 44 - That's a Paddling
This week I talk about HD-DVD and Bluray (and what Microsoft is getting out of supporting HD-DVD) and I review Ping Pong, a 2002 Japanese live action movie about cricket ... I mean ping pong. It was recently released on DVD by Viz.
Anime Roundtable: They played my promo on a recent show. Thanks guys!
Here are the news stories I talked about:
Name for the Fourth Indiana Jones movie announced:
"Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"
Robotech might be on the fast track
Warner Bros and Tobey Maguire's company Maguire Enterntainment are poised to produce.
In Regina, on Sept 20th through 23, Paprika will be playing at the Regina Public Library. There will also be a Japanese film festival on the 29th.
Here's the link to the show times. If you are in the Regina area and an Anime fan, be sure to go to support the Anime scene here in Southern Saskatchewan (which until this time I had no idea existed -- I thought it was just Bob and me).
