The Voice Of Frieza In Dragon Ball Z Needs Our Help

Some of you may not know Christopher Ayres by name, but you've probably heard his work. While he's typically known as the voice of villain Frieza in the Dragon Ball Z franchise, Ayres has had a hand in voicing several other anime dubs you likely know and love. Now, he needs our help.

Ayres has been diagnosed with end-stage Copd and requires a double lung transplant in order to survive as well as two additional surgeries. A fundraiser has been started and supported in his name to help for the cost of the medical procedure, which comes out to around $25,000. Many other Dbz actors have shared this cause to help Ayres out, and since we're all big fans here at GeekTyrant, we wanted to join in as well. 

If you'd like to donate to Chris's fund, be sure to go here. Donations have already exceeded $16,000, so it's possible we could

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, 2015.

Directed by Masahiro Hosoda.

Featuring the voice talents of Sean Schemmel, Christopher R. Sabat and Chris Ayres.

Synopsis:

One peaceful day on Earth, two remnants of Frieza’s army named Sorbet and Tagoma arrive searching for the Dragon Balls with the aim of reviving Frieza. They succeed, and Frieza subsequently seeks revenge on the Saiyans.

Before I even begin to talk about Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, I have something to confess. While I watched Dragon Ball Z rather religiously in my younger days, revelling in the six episodes it would take Goku to charge up before a big battle and the cited wait to watch Iconic foes such as Boo and Cell change form again and again, looking ever more badass in the process, I lost my way and haven’t watched the series in some time. Nor did I ever get

Movie Review – Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ (2015)

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, 2015.

Directed by Masahiro Hosoda.

Featuring the voice talents of Sean Schemmel, Christopher R. Sabat and Chris Ayres.

Synopsis:

The heroes of the Dragon Ball Z universe are faced with the revival of their most dangerous adversary in a showdown to decide the fate of earth once more.

The first season of Dragon Ball Z is such a divisive thing. It starts with the coming of Radditz, the long-lost brother of the hero we know as Goku, coming to earth and informing him of his alien roots. After a brutal battle, Goku is killed and sent into the afterlife. Of course, the setup for this franchise one that establishes a very non-permanent penalty for…you know…dying. Goku then spends what seems like 100,000 episodes running down Snake Way, an endless road magically floating above Hell (don’t even argue, we all know it was Hell

Infinite Stratos DVD Review

Director: Yasuhito Kikuchi

Starring: Kouki Uchiyama, Josh Grelle, Yoko Hikasa, Monica Rial, Asami Shimoda, Hilary Haag, Kana Hanazawa, Shannon Emerick, Makoto Yasumura, Chris Ayres, Marina Inoue, Tiffany Grant

Running Time: 325 minutes

Certificate: 15

Harem and mecha, together at last! When originality is hard to come by, why not just shove two popular genres of anime into one? Infinite Stratos is a argument both for and against such a tactic, as it may showcase the optimistic and fun tropes of the genres, but it also has twice the limitations, constantly highlighting the generic twists and turns.

Infinite Stratos is the name of a mechanical suit that would be perfect for war. Interestingly enough, this universe has outlawed the machines as such weapons and so they are used exclusively for sports. That’s the most fascinating thing about the show, as it takes large weaponised creations and reduces their sinister edge. Stars of

The World God Only Knows Season 2 DVD Review

Director: Kotomi Deai, Shigehito Takayanagi,

Starring: Chris Patton, Hiro Shimono, Luci Christian, Kanae Ito, Britney Karbowski, Aoi Yuki, Hilary Haag, Ayana Taketatsu, Kaytha Coker, Kana Hanazawa, Chris Ayres,

Running Time: 325 minutes

Certificate: 15

Extras: Textless intro and outro,

The World God Only Knows Season 1 was a delightfully bright and engaging story that mixed anime tales of fighting demons that at first had to be coerced out through a little romance. It was enough genre bending to engage males and females and had me absolutely hooked. One of the other positives was that despite a slightly formulaic set-up, story arcs could last from 1-3 episodes, depending on the natural progression of the story.

The World God Only Knows Season 2 continues to follow the God Of Conquest and his demon friend Elsie as they attempt to rid the world of Loose Souls. With beautifully animated visuals the characters really do come alive with

The World God Only Knows Season 1 DVD Review

Director: Kotomi Deai, Shigehito Takayanagi,

Starring: Chris Patton, Hiro Shimono, Luci Christian, Kanae Ito, Britney Karbowski, Aoi Yuki, Hilary Haag, Ayana Taketatsu, Kaytha Coker, Kana Hanazawa, Chris Ayres,

Running Time: 325 minutes

Certificate: 15

Extras: Music Videos, Textless intro and outro,

Souls that escape from the depths of hell are known as Loose Souls, and they hide in humans’ hearts if there is an empty space. Now this may sound like some twisted fantasy horror, but it’s a refreshing romantic comedy with a lot of bizarre quirkiness. The demon sent to Earth to recapture these souls isn’t a bright red, horned, scary creature, but an average looking girl. In order to release these souls hiding within humans, she needs to fill the hearts with love so that there is no room left for the Loose Soul. To do this she employs the services of Katsuragi, the self professed God Of Conquest,

New this Week: ‘I Am Number Four,’ ‘Unknown’ and ‘Unstoppable (DVD)’

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son – Martin Lawrence, Brandon T. Jackson, Jessica Lucas

I Am Number FourAlex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, Dianna Agron

UnknownLiam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones

Movie of the Week

Unknown

The Stars: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger, January Jones

The Plot: A man (Neeson) awakens from a coma, only to discover that someone has taken on his identity. With the help of a young woman (Kruger), he sets out to prove who he is.

The Buzz: Liam Neeson rocks. So happy to see his career is still in full swing. There have been a couple missable films on his most recent filmography (Clash of the Titans, The A-Team), but those were smaller roles, and he’s had his fair share of ‘must sees’ over the past few years (Taken, Five Minutes of Heaven, Chloe). The trailer for Unknown was thoroughly enticing.

Book Review: "Ozzy" by Ozzy Osbourne

  • Pajiba
if you have even the slightest bit of interest in Ozzy Osbourne, please check out this book. I've never been a huge fan (but also never disliked him), but after reading this, I really feel as though I know the guy. That's crazy, I realize, but he and his co-author did such a great job capturing his life and his voice, that you feel all cozied up to him by the end.

Before I get ahead of myself, a bit about the autobiography: yes, he had a co-author. Osbourne is profoundly dyslexic. He can read, but has read only a few books in his entire life. He isn't a writer, either, obviously. He quit school at 15 and by his own admission has spent most of his life turning his brain to jelly with alcohol and drugs. So yeah, Chris Ayres did the actual writing. Which worried me at first. Ghost
