Miura's Berserk films, and Game of Thrones

Andrew Osmond goes mad for Berserk
Christmas Eve sees the release of the first of a spectacular new film trilogy based on Berserk, the brutal fantasy manga epic by Kentarou Miura. The films, starting with Berserk Movie 1: The Egg of the King, retell the story from the beginning. It’s primarily the saga of a warrior, Guts – and one might add, of guts, usually sliding off Guts’ mighty sword. To say that Guts kills things – human, animal, monster – is like saying that people breathe air. It’s Guts’s job; it’s what he’s good at; and he’s in a world where there’s no shortage of things to slay.

JORMUNGAND: PERFECT ORDER

Hugh David calls Czechmate on the endgame
"The action scenes remain superlative, designed and executed in a way Western live-action directors would do well to study. The way character moments are woven within elevates them above mere technical exercises. The Prague shoot-out and Tokyo car chase are the sort of gems that prove that anime can still trump live-action in the same creative arenas when it wants to."
