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

My Top 10 Most Anticipated Movies of 2017

2016 has been a monster of a year, what with the election and all (it’s gonna be a LONG four years; also fuck Trump and the Trump police if they try to get me), and of course with movies. For every gem that came out, there were also mixed bags at best and some REALLY bad movies at worst. I’ve yet to finish reviewing movies from 2016 that I’ve seen, there’s still some 2016 movies I’ve yet to see and would like to (and also dreading to see but you know me, I’m kind of a sadomasochist when it comes to this stuff) and to make my top best and worst movies of 2016, but I thought I’d try to get this out of the way in the meantime. So far as I’ve seen, 2017 doesn’t seem to be too bad for movies, and I’m looking forward to more. Now I will admit, I’ve already seen some movies that came out this year (The Lego Batman Movie, Split, Get Out, and John Wick: Chapter Two) so I won’t include them in the list, but I will say that they are definitely awesome and innovative in their own right, and hopefully there will be more awesomeness to come, though there will also be some crap movies coming out too. Also this is just my opinion, so if you have different ideas of movies to look forward to or dreading to see, that’s fine. So here we go:

Turning Japanese Graphic Novel Review

Rating: 5/5

It’s been a while since I’ve done a graphic novel review, or really a review at all in general. Yeah, I’ve been kinda busy with stuff in my life, and I know that’s probably not a good excuse, but I’m trying to get stuff done now at least. What better way to get back into it than Turning Japanese? I really think so.

[Crickets chirping]

Oh c’mon, you know I gotta make bad puns like these! I can’t help it! How else am I gonna reference the Turning Japanese song?

In all seriousness, though, this is probably one of the best graphic novels I have ever read. No exaggeration or hyperbole, I am dead serious. Read More

My Second Top 5 Characters for Young Justice

So yeah, I’m gonna make this a thing like with my Legends of Tomorrow character lists. Honestly, thinking about both of those shows, they are in a way similar to each other, though they do use different methods of storytelling, different formats on which to do them (i.e. YJ is animated and LOT is live-action), and yet they kinda have different yet similar premises to each other, in which both shows are about a wide variety of characters from DC Comics and team up together and go on missions together, difference between em is that YJ is about, as the title suggests, the young characters, while LOT has heroes and villains teaming up together. With both of these shows having these elements, it allows them to incorporate a lot of characters, concepts, and ideas to be put into them, no matter how unlikely or difficult it is, and manages to pull it off well. That being said, there’s still plenty of characters that can be put into the show, regardless of whether they be members of the Team, supporting characters, or antagonists. Here we go: Read More

My First Top 5 Characters for Young Justice

young-justice-poster

So it’s been confirmed that Young Justice is coming back for a third season! Hooray! This has been something me and many other people have been hoping to happen for a LONG time. I’ll admit, at the time that it aired on TV, I didn’t get to watch it much, but what I did see of it was very good, and I’m glad it was well-received and had a strong loyal fanbase, and thankfully I’ve made up for that by watching ALL the episodes on the blu ray releases and loving how awesome it is to this day.

Young Justice was about a group of young superheroes trying to prove themselves to be full-fledged superheroes, instead of sidekicks as regarded by their mentors and older counterparts, by taking on covert missions against the Justice League’s enemies, who’ve formed their own group known as “The Light” (really just another nickname for the Secret Society of Super Villains or Legion of Doom). The show was like a mix of the youthful energy of Teen Titans and the scale/scope of Justice League/Justice League Unlimited, with the emotional depth and wider universe appeal of both added to it as well as that of the DC Universe as a whole.
