Bonus Episode

1 hr 38 min / Published

Join Izzy and Mox in this week's episode of "Not Actually Film Critics" as they dive headfirst into the world of video games and anime adaptations. With Gibbs and Zea away on family matters, it's just the dynamic duo this time around.

First up, they explore the latest video game releases, including the highly anticipated "Bomb Rush Cyberfunk," "Armored Core 6," "Starfield," and the intriguing "Cyberpunk Phantom Liberty" trailer. Izzy and Mox discuss gaming trends and what developers can learn from the massive success of "Baldur's Gate 3." Be prepared for an in-depth, spoiler-free review of the game, complete with Izzy's favorite character declaration: "Lae'zel best girl."

Next on the docket is the review of Netflix's live-action adaptation of "One Piece." Izzy and Mox question why some anime adaptations, like "Cowboy Bebop," seem to struggle while others shine. They also take a moment to compare the remake of "Rurouni Kenshin" to the original, diving into the nuances of the adaptation process.

And of course, there's no shortage of entertainment as they wrap up the episode with a quick review and score for "Ninja Turtles Mutant Mayhem."

Join us next week when the whole crew is back, and we return to our regular movie review program, diving into the world of fantasy with a review of "Dragonslayer" (1981). Don't miss it!
