Alright, my first review of the first episode of a brand new Kamen Rider series. Now this show, Kamen Rider Drive has quite a bit to live up too. Not only is this the show that allows the Heisei era of Kamen Rider to surpass the Shōwa era, but it is the 16th series of said era; which is following Gaim. The series that many fans of the Toku genre claim to not only be the best written series since Kamen Rider Black; but the best of the Heisei era in general. No pressure right?
                              
Oh suck it up. We open on a rainy night as the narration tells us about how the end of the world can occur in the blink of an eye. When all of a sudden the world starts to slow down as monsters appear out of nowhere. By slow down I mean, it's almost as if the world is lagging, you could still talk but your body can't keep up. The monsters on the other hand can move through the lag with no problem, going at normal speed.

I'm siiiiiiinging in the raiiiiin, just siiiiinging in the raiiiin.

These are the monsters of the series, the Roidmudes. There are three basic models of these guys. The Spider Roidmudes, the Bat Roidmudes and the Cobra Roidmudes. Why those three animals? As an homage to the first three monsters from the original series, Spider Man, Bat Man and Cobra Man. As monsters are want to do they start killing as many people as they can, who have no way to defend themselves, especially since they can barely move. No joke, these things are not playing around, throwing fireballs at shops filled with people, throwing giant ceramic bowling pins ( from a nearby bowling alley) at large, immovable crowds and throwing giant bowling balls, (again from a display from a nearby bowling alley) at buildings and just killing as many people as they can.With enough explosions to make Michael Bay grin like the Joker.

Yes, the Global Freeze which is why it's mostly focused around Japan and the easternmost parts of China judging by this shot, okay.

We then cut to a fight where the Narrator says that that was the day that his time stopped. We see some Detectives fighting some criminals near the docks or an industrial area who I assume are gun runners since we see them firing handguns and shotguns at the Detectives. I say they're gunrunners because Japan's gun control laws are actually worth a shit. The weapons law begins by stating that "No-one shall possess a fire-arm or fire-arms or a sword or swords", and very few exceptions are allowed. However, citizens are permitted to possess firearms for hunting and sport shooting, but only after submitting to a lengthy licensing procedure. And this gun registration and licensing is strict as hell. Of course law officials are allowed to carry firearms so there's that. Anyway the two detectives seem to be holding their own when they start to glitch out. One of the detectives calls out for his partner Hayase as he provides covering fire, however due to the lag he misses and hits a nearby tank of flammable substances which of course explodes sending Hayase falling down a floor. The cop tries to run to Hayase but Hayase gets crushed by some over hanging girders and the detective couldn't make it in time due to the lag.

Before the Anime adaptation, Death note was made into a movie. How’s it stack up?

Yes, we know this isn't technically Tokusatsu, but Live-action adaptation of a Japanese series, sooo~ we cover it here.

Okay, before you jump on me, I think I have to clarify why I'm interested in Joel Schumacher's return to The Dark Knight Mythology.

I was a total 90s kid and I still am. I for better or worse, grew up with his take on Batman. Yeah sure I did like the Tim Burton movies, but at times since I was only 3 or 4 at the time, they were scary for my youthful self.

Batman Forever, yes its allot more light hearten than most of the movies and allot of people think its as bad as Batman & Robin. But, when you get down to it, its not that bad. Personally, I love it and I still hold onto it from my childhood. I saw it in the theaters and I watched it so much on VHS that I wore the tape out. I had all the toys, pogs, McDonald's cups and costume. I love the cast, and as a kid, I more identified with Robin. And everybody is gonna hate me for saying this, but this is my favorite Batman movie.
