LOK: The Calling Review
Hey everyone. Here’s the next episode review, and I have decided to officially start using the format that I’ve been using for my Star Wars Rebels reviews. Sorry for the sudden change but I have found it more comfortable to use and less rigid. Enjoy!
Jinora, Ikki and Meelo
So this episode can be more or less split in two. The first is Korra’s further journey into repairing herself, whilst the other half to fill the gaps was the search for her by Jinora, Ikki and Meelo, who have all naturally gotten older and are therefore given more responsibilities. Considering how often immature Ikki and especially Meelo act during the mission it’s hard not to get a bit critical of Tenzin’s decision, but I’m willing to buy the idea that this was something of a last resort, what with the Air Nation being overstretched.
In any case their moments were the weakest part of the episode, but by no means were they bad. Their interactions during the mission we
A Small Rant About Sonic Fan BaseI don’t understand most fans nowadays. The fans I’ve used to know back then used to be the ones who were always eager for a game to come out and play it with such joyfulness and without a care in the world. Nowadays, so many fans are always expecting so much more from the character/game, greedy, selfish or just plain unappreciative. These fans act such a way is because they are hanging to long to the past.
Sonic fans in particular have this problem. So many fans of Sonic grew up playing Sonic the Hedgehog 1 & 2, Sonic 3d & Knuckles, Adventure, Adventure 2 Battle and Heroes —they associate themselves with those games on how much fun they were playing through each level, accomplishing each goal, enjoying the story and feeling satisfied in the end. Back then; fans were so grateful for what Sega was doing with their beloved franchised character. But now, fans act like unappreciative wild animals, only expecting greatness and riches from their blue hero. And
Van Helsing Nview - Return of October-a-Thon Pt 1
Inside a large laboratory full of strange odd and ends, there is a table with a bloody sheet covering what looks like a body, though it's feet poke out, revealing grey Coverse shoes. A few meters from this body is a large container with liquid bubbling and a human brain inside, attached to wires that connect to differing devices.
Staring at this brain is a scientist who, despite all the colors in his lab, has skin tone that resembles the film grain of a black-and-white movie. He pushes his glasses onto his nose as he places one final plug into the brain before he turns to his computer and pushes a button, sending energy to the brain, that twitches slightly from the power running through it.
Scientist: "Come on, speak to me…" (he looks at a computer screen monitor separate from him that shows a text line. After a moment, the monitor fills with words.)
Monitor: "wh-what's going on? Why can't I see or hear anything?"
Scientist: (he grins) "Success! Ah ha!!" (he pulls up his keyboard
Freddy vs. Jason Review
"He may get the blood, but I get the glory."
Ding-ding-ding, all slasher villains in the ring! In this corner, he at the time of this film's release was in seven films, kills teenagers in their dreams, a child murder and his murder weapon is a razor glove! Freddy Krueger! In this corner, he at the time of this films' release appeared in a whopping ten films, loyal to his mother to punish teenagers, uses a variety of tools at his disposal to kill them! Jason Voorhees! NOW LET'S GET READY TO RUUUUUUUUUMBLE!
I mentioned in my Frozen review that that film and Freddy vs. Jason are my favorite development hell stories. While Frozen had a longer time in comparison due to decades of being stumped over what to do with the film. However, I can imagine it felt longer than The Snow Queen's time to get to the big screen as there are a multitude of scripts and ideas that went unused with either all of them being a draft of the same idea or a variety of different concepts. It actually all started whe
December 20th, 1996. The eighth episode of Millennium aired on FOX. Un-Break My Heart by Toni Braxton was the number one single on the Top 100 Billboard Charts. Carl Sagan died at the age of 67. And the Horror genre was on its last legs.
Horror began to decline at the box office around 1989 and while there were some hits during the 90's with quality films to go with it, Horror was treated as a joke given the likes of Leprechaun and the genre often resorted to direct to video fare such as the Full Moon Pictures library or sequels to established franchises like The Howling series. It doesn't help that a film like Silence of the Lambs was being classified as just a Thriller rather than an all out Horror film. This is how much contempt Hollywood tends to have for Horror, which is probably why I tend to support the genre and female filmmakers as I tend to root for the actual underdogs to get respect. But seriously, I'm not kidding when I say that Hollywood has low opinions on both Horror an
SWR: Rise Of The Old Masters Review
Hey everyone. Here’s the latest episode review of Star Wars Rebels. Enjoy!
Ezra And Kanan
So this episode was very much the ‘student/mentor growth’ episode as it dealt with Ezra’s struggle with learning the ways of the Jedi. The student struggling to learn something is hardly anything new in television, but what made this version stand out was that Ezra was not the only one showing difficulty here.
Indeed Kanan Jarrus also struggles in his role as mentor and quickly hits a barrier in training Ezra. So much so that he’s quite ready to hand his training over to a more experienced Jedi at the first chance he gets. Ezra takes this to mean that he’s abandoning him, but the episodes makes it clear that Kanan is doing this because he feels like it’s for the best, because he believes he’s not good enough for the role.
I knew we’d get an episode focusing more on Kanan soon, and I have to say I’m quite impressed. We really
