Rating: 1/5

If there’s any Marvel character with more animated adaptations than you can count, it’s definitely Spider-Man. From the 1960s to the present day, there has been an animated series depicting the iconic wallcrawler, with each of them depicting the character in its own unique way. With the latest show, Ultimate Spider-Man, having just ended eight months ago, a new Spidey cartoon is now airing, simply titled “Marvel’s Spider-Man“. Heck, much like what Disney is doing right now with the new DuckTales, the first episode was released on Disney XD’s YouTube channel. I watched the first episode and half of the second, and then I gave up on it. Yeah, I know, that might be a bit prudent of me, and if you like the show, that’s fine, but I just couldn’t go through with it. And yes I get that this show is “made for kids”, but I find that to be a bullshit excuse for something that’s bad. Anyone watching, be it kids or whoever, deserves better. This show might actually be worse than Ultimate Spider-Man, and that’s saying something, considering how bad that show was. Here are my reasons why: Read More

Anyone else get the feeling that these things are staring at our souls? Christ…

Rating: 1/5

This is something I’ve been looking forward to and dreading for a while: reviewing Teen Titans GO! Never thought I’d actually do this, but I figure with a lot of others giving TTG flak, I thought I’d put in my two cents. Bare in mind, I’m probably going to talk about stuff regarding this show that you’ve probably already heard before, so forgive me if I sound like I’m regurgitating this stuff. Read More

Infinity Train TV Review

Rating: 5/5

Apparently CN is trying to get new shows off the ground, one of which has really piqued my interest, that being Infinity Train. So far only the pilot has been released, but ever since I watched it on YouTube it’s been stuck in my head and I had to talk about it here. From what I understand the show is about a girl named Tulip (voiced by Ashley Johnson, the voice of Ellie from The Last of Us and Terra from Teen Titans, and currently stars on Blindspot), and her robot friend One-One who splits into two robots, Glad-One (voiced by Jeremy Crutchley who sounds like John Oliver) and Sad-One (voiced by Owen Dennis, the creator of the show, who sounds like Maurice LaMarche), navigating through a mysterious train that is seemingly limitless and each car housing an internal dimension. It’s very interesting in regards to its premise, simple yet dynamic animation, voice acting, characters, humor, and the possibilities it presents through its surrealism. It kinda reminds me of some the recent cartoons both CN and Disney have done, in a way. Read More
