Foolish Samurai Warrior

Power Puff Girls, Dexter’s Lab, Samurai Jack, Johnny Bravo Comics to Surf Wave of ’90s Baby Nostalgia

It’s a glorious age for 20-30 somethings: the moment that the culture starts to realize that it’s not just your adult tastes that it can cater to, but the tastes that you left behind in childhood and might wish to return to. IDW Comics, they of the absurdly best selling My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic have caught a taste of that nostalgia (okay, so the selling power of that comic can’t be placed solely at the feet of nostalgia) and they want more of that sweet, (bitter)sweet memory money.

Zach Snyder Might be Working on the Star Wars Universe After All

So there’s some good news. And some news that might be bad. And all of it falls under the category of unnamed sources (though from a pretty reputable news outlet). And it’s “in development.” But those of you who are familiar with Samurai 7, an anime miniseries adapted from Akira Kurosawa‘s The Seven Samurai will now be wondering what the heck it could have to do with a Zach Snyder Star Wars movie. Lets answer these questions, shall we?

Rule #1: If a Ninja Wants You To Attack Him, Don’t Attack Him

Here is a situation in which geeks have a clear advantage. First of all, there’s the Discworld’s infamous Rule Number One: “Do not act incautiously when confronting little bald wrinkly smiling men.” Secondly, there’s the Inverse Ninja Rule, most memorably explored by Chris Hastings in Dr. McNinja, which states that a single ninja acting alone is almost always nigh-invincible, deadly, and will cost the hero dearly to defeat them. But when the hero fights a group of ninjas, they are always mere cannon fodder (Puddies, the Foot Clan, etc.), which leads to the conclusion that the power of a group of ninjas has an inverse relationship to its size.

What I am saying is, any way you slice it with that razor sharp wakizashi of yours, all these people willingly challenging a lone ninja are idiots, and should actually be relieved when all the other ninjas show up.

But watch out for that woman once she’s done with her coffee. It’s clearly the key to her superpowers.

Genndy Tartakovsky’s Priest Prologue Most Exciting Thing About Priest So Far

There’s nothing that makes the rest of your movie or video game look less interesting in comparison than a stylized and well animated explanatory prologue or epilogue. Hellboy II, A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Dante’s Inferno, I’m looking at you.

And here’s me thinking it’d be months before I’d get to use the Foolish Samurai Warrior category again. Speaking of which, Mr. Tartakovsky, when’s that Samurai Jack movie happening? You know, the one that J. J. Abrams said he was doing? Sym-Bionic Titan was shiny and all, and you’ll have to find someone to replace Mako and that’ll be really sad, but… we want to know how he gets back to the past.

Samurai Jack IRL

Well, maybe not exactly “Samurai Jack IRL.”  But if they ever made a theatrical production of the hit Cartoon Network show, it could do worse than to look like this.

The performer, Taichi Saotome, is an actor of classical Japanese theater, and has made a name for himself playing the roles of women and bishonen (young, graceful, attractive men).  You don’t need to know that to enjoy the video, but I thought it was super interesting, so I subjected you to it.
