K-Pax is a great movie.

And in case you wondered, here is what Bess's letter reads (so far I could see it on my DVD, maybe I could see more on a Bluray...?)

My comment on the ending of "Red Spectacles" (1987)

Here's a short comment/interpretation of the ending of Mamoru Oshii's 1987 live action movie "The Red Spectacles".

Discussing the ending of a movie implies that this is HEAVY SPOILERING till there's nothing left, so if you haven't seen the movie, I highly recommend to watch it first. At the moment the whole movie is uploaded on a famous video distributing website (not THAT famous video distributing website, but another one; if you have no clue which this could be, here I give you a gaily notion). I am a fan of Jin Roh, it's not only my favorite anime (which isn't that hard coz animeh suxz), but my favorite movie, and this movie did not disappoint me in any way. So, if you like artsy movies with a dark tone, ambivalent images and the philosophy to trust in the viewers that they figure out a bit on themselves, this movie is right for you! Go, watch it now! Awesome stuff! Highly recommended!

DISASSEMBLE HOUR GIVEAWAY #012: Cyber Doll (Sega Saturn)

Used MopoZ's DisSat to disassemble some stuff from the main code file (file "0" without file extension in the main directory), had some help from FAST6191 on the whole Saturn issue and commented some lines. The comments just explain what the lines do, because I'm still totally unfamiliar with the look and the commands of the SuperH processors.

Here's the result that isn't one:

Made the basics, where they buffer their palettes and stuff. Did you know that they poll the data of four joypads? I don't even know if Sunset Riders has a four-player-mode, but I highly doubt that. Well, at least they tried.
