Having done the UK proud and Canadian manga fans one better, what has Edgar Wright brought to musically inclined getaway drivers of the South? #SilverDollar – I also played plenty of rhythm games in our month long absence headlined by DJ Hero (27:46), went to the cinema for Captain Underpants (31:47) and Transformers: The Last Knight (34:30) in 3D, and stayed home for Adam Sandler’s The Cobbler (43:17). Meanwhile, Steve caught Cars 3 also in three dimensions (52:03), Collateral Beauty (55:10), and The Girl on the Train (59:37), before I close with my many Goodwill finds featuring an ad for the org (1:03:42).

Its everything you want and then tons more than you’d ever expect. If you’ve ever laughed out loud at the sight of blood I’m sure you’ll love this manga adaptation just like me #IdBuyThatForADollar

We’ve seen what happens when known comic book properties make the jump to the big screen, but how about a microscopic hero that most are oblivious to? Despite production snafus and everything going against it, has Marvel pulled off the genre within a genre trick?
