This week’s DVDs is full of TV shows you wish you’d had this weekend

You don’t have to celebrate Labor Day to know marathoning a TV series is a pleasantly lazy way to spend the weekend.

The world's most depressing anime movie is getting a live-action…

Grave of the Fireflies is an anime masterpiece, one of the greatest anti-war movies ever made, and a chilling look at two children trying to survive amidst the 1945 bombing of Kobe during World War II. It is also, as you might imagine, incredibly fucking depressing. It has also just been optioned in England as an… » 11/26/12 3:17pm 11/26/12 3:17pm
