Attack on Titan: Mania is Coming! (May 2015)


I'm a bit late to Attack on Titan and the craze in anime, but I really want to see the new feature coming this summer from Toho Studios. Jonathan Tabreham was the one who told me about the series and up-coming film after his recent trip to Japan in 2014. From what I know, giant Colossal Titan creatures are attacking Japan in the future and devouring their pray as a band of survivors take action to try and the defeat the over-sized, skinless human giants! The Titans even fight each other in Japanese madness! That's what I understand anyway and the film adaptation is due to hit the BIG screen this summer in the east and in Australia. Madman Entertainment will release the film in Australia.


The cartoon/anime is ultra-violent and contains adult themes from what I have seen. There is merchandise and mania creeping into our culture - and I love it! I found a TITAN cartoon poster stand in HMV, see photo above and the animation is on UK dvd in various volumes. I'm sure there are toys and games out there, but I know that TITAN has taken Japan by storm! Please, check out Jon T's write up - HERE and the Interview below when I caught him late in 2014 at Broadway Cinema, Nottingham. The AOT film will be in two epic parts.

Review: My Friend Max (2017) - Directed by Mikeal Burgin (February 2017)

Synopsis:"After the loss of her father, young Thea has lived a secluded life without any friends, except for one. Her imaginary friend, Max, is a cause for concern for Thea's mother, who drastically intervenes with Thea's solitary social life. As a result, Max finds himself competing for Thea's attention, and his own existence.".
A Drop Dead Fred-esq short film from Mikeal Burgin sees a young girl talking to her imaginary friend to her mother's confusion. In My Friend Max (2017) - Max (the imaginary being played by actor Doug Jones) fights for the attention of the little girl when the mother gets involved in personal affairs of the young girl's life!

Moving stuff... Max gets upset and real life seems to get in the way for the odd/real/imaginary couple. It seems that Max has his own demons, too to contend with.

There was some nice acting chemistry between the little girl and her made-up friend. We are are rooting for her and her naive charm and friendship …

Interview: Michael Haberfelner ([re]SearchMyTrash) (Screenwriter) (July 2017)

I got to question Screenwriter and owner of www.searchmytrash.com in Michael Haberfelner. He is currently going to be working with USA Actress, Debra Lamb. He also collaborates with actress Eirian Cohen and actor Laurence Harvey. His screen writer credits include,  A Killer Conversation (2015) and Talk of the Dead (2017).
Tell me about any upcoming Projects you are working on?
Well, the next one is the big one, THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS ZOMBIES, the first feature film I’m going to produce. We start shooting in a little over a week, so all buzzing with excitement and knee-deep in preparations ;) The story is basically a woman welcoming her ex into her house, totally oblivious to the fact that he’s actually a zombie, and her husband, who has killed that very same ex in the first place, is understandably less than thrilled. Eirian Cohen stars as the woman, with Rudy Barrow being her husband, Rami Hilmi the zombie ex, and we have guest appearances by US horror icons Debra Lamb and Lynn Low…
