You may recall that last week I made a review of the first episode of “Voltron: Legendary Defender” made by Dreamworks Animation and distributes as one of Netflix Original Series.
Now i will make a full review of the series and my final thoughts on it. Continue reading Review: Voltron Legendary Defender is Almost Legendary
“In an all-new series, five unlikely heroes and their flying robot lions unite to form the megapowerful Voltron and save the galaxy.”
Produced by Lauren Montgomery and Joaquim Dos Santos (alumni from “The Last Airbender” franchise) comes the reboot of the Anime cult classic Voltron (in itself a Re-dub of the obscure anime Go-Lion): Voltron: Legendary Defender
This series, from the hands of Dreamworks Animation and distributed by Netflix worldwide, is the second attempt of modernizing the franchise after the unsuccesful attempt that was the TV Show “Voltron Force”. But instead of being a sequel to the original show, this one is a full-out reboot and reimagining of said series. All the while using the blend of western animation and Anime that was involved in the creation of both Legend of Aang and Legend of Korra (in fact, the animation was done by Studio Mir, who also worked on Korra). Continue reading Review: The Origin of Voltron
Confession time: I greatly dislike DC’s Nu52. I honestly believe that, overall, it has showcased a lot of what is wrong with the comic industry and that the titles that were good, were good despite of it, not because of it.
There are also 2 changes DC did that i will flat out call godawful and offensive and am willing to argue it with anyone, because i believe they are in the wrong for defending these two: The Kents being dead in Superman’s backstory and EVERYTHING related to Wonder Woman in the Nu52.
If someone where to speak about Cartoon Network back in the nineties, there are two, maybe three shows that are more than likely to be brought up. One of them is Craig McCracken’s Power Puff Girls.
Now, the best way to describe Power Puff Girls would be to say, a Magical Girl/Superhero show with a very saccarine premise… in a very ugly setting. By this i don’t mean that it is a crapsack world (altough at times it was), but rather that there was a certain intentional disparity between the apparent colorfulness of the characters and how violent it could become or how grotesque the villains and monsters could be. And this was, in part, because of the very creative and expressive characters design as well as strong writing that cleverly set itself to demolish your expectations of a show starring three sisters.
One of the reasons for the shows success was that it took two elements that were seemingly at odds with each other (girliness and scary, violent imagery),combined them and played them straight. Thus creating a product that was unique both in look and feeling.
The Reboot drops all that and decides to be generic as possible. Continue reading Review: Power Puff Girls 2016: Just go watch We Bare Bears
Released in February 26 of 2016 on Steam, Stardew Valley is an RPG Farming Simulation game (in the same vibe as the Harvest Moon games for the Nintendo handheld consoles) for PC developed by ConcernedApe and published by Game Studio Chucklefish of Starbound fame.
In the game you control your farmer character (which you can customize and name to your liking) who starts living in the abandoned farm of their late grandfather once they, as the game puts it, get sick of living in the city and seek the peace and quiet of Pelican Town, a once thriving community which has fallen into decline since the Joja Corporation recently opened a new JojaMart location in the area. However, as you begin to restore your late Grandfather’s farm to it’s former glory, you may as well help the town to heal as well.
