Trailer: If I Stay


Earlier this week, the trailer for If I Stay was released.

An adaptation of Gaye Forman’s excellent young adult novel, If I Stay tells the story of Mia (played, in what would seem to be a case of perfect casting, by Chloe Grace Moretz), a talented cellist who, after being involved in a horrific traffic accident, finds herself forced to literally choose between life and death.  The book was a poignant and thought-provoking work that transcended the conventional limitations of the YA genre and it will be interesting to see how director R.J. Cutler translates the material for the big screen.

If I Stay will be released on August 22nd.

AMV of the Day: The Gore Never Bothered Me Anyway (Elfen Lied)


ElfenLied

The latest “AMV of the Day” doesn’t come courtesy of this past spring’s Anime Boston, but it caught my eye since it was the latest creation from one of my favorite AMV creators: IleiaAMVs.

“RadioAkshun” was her very popular and excellent AMV from last year’s anime con season and her latest offering for this weekend’s Sakura-Con 2014 may just be another hit.

This latest anime music video from IleiaAMVs combines one of the more mature-oriented anime one can get into without venturing into the truly extreme anime with one of the most popular songs of the past year with “Let It Go” from Frozen. One wouldn’t think that Elfen Lied and Frozen would go together like peanut butter and jelly but in this one instance they’re perfect together.

Anime: Elfen Lied

Song: “Let It Go” from Frozen (feat. Idina Menzel)
