Happy 20th anniversary to Cowboy Bebop, one of the most beautiful and important anime series ever created.

Set in the year 2071, humans have now colonized most of the solar system. Despite this, the future is still pretty busted, with violence and crime running rampant. So to cope with this planetary governments hire bounty hunters called cowboys to track down and apprehend these criminals for a reward. The series follows the adventures of a group of bounty hunters on board a ship called the Bebop. Their names are Spike, Jet, Faye, Ed, and their dog Ein. Yet not all is as it seems, since every member of the crew has a past that often encroaches on their present.
Only a scant 26 episodes long, this show is nonetheless famous for it's magnificent animation, combination space western and future noir setting, smart and funny dialogue, brilliant voice acting (both in japanese and in the dub), well written stories and compelling character arcs, eclectic soundtrack of jazz, blues, rock, and funk, and it's themes of existential nihilism, stoicism, loneliness, moral ambiguity, dealing with one's past, and how to survive and build relationships in a harsh environment.

A seminal work of anime, this series helped to further popularize the artform not only in the West, but all around the world. It has certainly earned all of it's accolades and is a true joy to watch. "See You Space Cowboy.."

The Dark Tower (2017) dir. Nikolaj Arcel – 2/5 - FILM REVIEW

I've not read through the entirety of Stephen King's epic Dark Tower series, apart from the first 2 or 3 books (can't remember exactly, it was a long time ago), so I had no real affection for the source material or had any real worries of the film being a faithful adaptation or not.

As for the film itself: muddled, inconsistent, thinly-written, possibly too short. I'd say this would have been more interesting if the story was better paced and the actors were given a bit more to chew in terms of the script. The characters weren't as fleshed out as they could have been, their intentions and actual characterisations were starting on the right path, but the editing just cuts away too soon and makes substantial scenes feel insubstantial. Because of this, Idris Elba's and Matthew McConaughey's talents are wasted; there could have been some really interesting dynamics and performances if the script was stronger, but unfortunately it just feels like their talents were wasted here.

I don't know if maybe fans of the books may get more from this film than I possibly did. Whilst it's watchable, it isn't great and just feels incomplete on the whole.

#EastofWest is a brilliant comic book series set in a pre-apocolyptic America in which the civil war never really ended. It's SO GOOD and beautifully drawn. And violent. #boulder #books #boulderbookstore #bibliophile #instabooks #bookstagram #bookstore #scifi #sciencefictionwestern #scifiwestern @imagecomics @NickDragotta @JHickman
