LOK: Korra Alone Review
Hey everyone. Welcome to the next episode review of Korra Book 4! I’ve got to give my most heartfelt apologies for this wait guys. I was incredibly sick over the weekend, and then obviously work gets involved, and I did not want to miss an AMAZING film called Pride, so...yea, this one took way too long.
But finally it is here, so let’s not wait any longer!
What I Liked
Not much to say here except that it’s always great to see Katara reappear! Really she was the perfect character to first start helping Korra, and much of her advice and helped rang quite true. We certainly know she’s been through similar pain, and her comparison between Korra’s plight and Aang’s worked like a charm.
Let me just say it up-front; what they’re doing with Korra is absolutely amazing...and heart-wrenching.
In stark contrast to the previous episode, this episode was almost completely about Korra. It fills the ga
LOK: The Coronation Review
Hey everyone. Here’s the review of the latest Korra episode, and this time the day before and not nearly a week after! Without further ado, let’s delve into the new episodes!
What I Liked
Good Ol’ Toph
God, who DIDN’T feel a little bit nostalgic during this episode?
It was an absolute delight watching Toph be...Toph in all her badass glory. It made me realise just how different she was in the flashback scenes as the Chief of Police. Understandable, she’s a professional and a figure of authority, so she HAS to be more reserved, but seeing her now makes it clear how much happier she is now that she’s retired.
It really did feel like we were watching ATLA once again. Toph’s carefree and stubborn playfulness is just like it was when she was a child, but now she has the wisdom of someone who has lived a full life. Despite her impolite and thuggish way of treating Korra, everything she said was spot on and everything wa
American Psycho - Return of October-a-Thon
Released in 2000 under the direction of Mary Harron ("The Notorious Bettie Page," "Six Feet Under") with distribution through Lions Gate Films on a budget of $7 million; "American Psycho" is a psychological black comedy based on the controversial novel of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis. Upon it's release, the film was met with polarizing reaction from the film-going audience, half hailing it as a smart and witty slam on yuppie culture with a fantastic actor in the lead role, the other, dismissing it as a pretentious mess and a poor adaptation of Ellis' sharp satire that took the joke too literally. Thanks to the miracle of technology, the film found life on DVD and grew a cult following that appreciated the film's jab at male vanity and a sardonic look at 1980's greed and materialism.
And yes, before you even comment below, I was quoting the FunnyOrDie parody they did with Huey Lewis and Weird Al making fun of that scene.
In what may be 1987 New York City, 27 year-old wealthy inves
Ebolapocalypse: Survival GuideAbout the Ebola Virus and how to Protect yourself from it
The Ebola Apocalypse is Coming!
Don't be alarmed, you can fight it and help it die out!
Let's put an end to that miserable little bugger, eh?
First of all, let's learn what exactly Ebola is.
Ebola is an infectious and generally fatal disease marked by fever and severe internal bleeding, spread through contact with infected body fluids by a filovirus ( Ebola virus ), whose normal host species is unknown.
Ewww... Ugly little bugger, ain't he? Wouldn't want THAT in your body would you?
I know I wouldn't!
What are the symptons?
Early Symptoms include:
Advanced Stages include:
-Impaired Liver and Kidney
-Unusual Bleeding (Like the eyes and mouth)
Even though Early Symptoms are like colds, or anything that isn't even Ebola related, you should always go to the doctor if you get any of these symptoms, even if it isn't
Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare Review
"Every town has an Elm Street!"
So yeah, Nightmare on Elm Street 5 did not bring in the money New Line Cinema wanted. Given that the previous film, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master was number one at the box office for three weeks, three, it paled in comparison. Slasher films were starting to wane in popularity and the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise was no exception. New Line feeling it was time to retire the character, they decided to make one last film. In fact, Wes Craven remarked upon seeing the film's promotional poster on a bus, "Well, must mean they milked the cow for all its worth."
At first, they had a script immediately following The Dream Child but with 15 year old Jacob as the hero and Alice killed but was scrapped. That script may still exist so maybe you could search for that on Google.
Instead, they wanted to start anew and they at first hired Peter Jackson. Yes, the same Peter Jackson who went to make The Lord of the Rings trilogy but for those of you who
"You're dead if you aim only for kids. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway."
- Walt Disney.
The above quote is there for a reason. You like fairy tales? Dolls? Actually are you afraid of that last one? Killer doll/toy movies are a dime a dozen, aren't they? You have your Child's Plays, your Puppet Masters, your Zuni fetish dolls, anything goes with that concept really. Actually it's funny I mentioned Puppet Master because Charles Band's previous company had something to do with this. You see, after Stuart Gordon had hit success with Re-Animator (in part due the stellar reaction at Cannes as well Roger Ebert and Pauline Kael's positive reviews of the film); Band had offered Gordon a three picture deal with Empire Pictures and thus, he and his wife moved to Italy to accommodate the deal which included From Beyond, Robot Jox and of course, Dolls. In some ways, this film is sort of a prototype to Puppet Master given the premise as well as the dolls themselves as to how they're alive.
Code Geass: Akito the Exiled Parts 1 and 2 Review
Mgrgr! I spent several hours writing an excellent (if I do say so myself) review of this, then a danged Sta.sh glitch deleted it. [Insert your preferred string of vulgarities here]. Anyway, this review might be a little shorter than the original draft (most readers probably weren't too interested in a long political comparison of the EU and Britannia anyway), but hopefully be just as good. This review covers the first two episodes. Also note that this review is based on a fansub. Once an official dub is available, I'll try to update this.
Code Geass: Akito the Exiled is a four part OVA series, each part being roughly an hour long, based off the famed anime Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion, taking place between the original's two season. However, unlike the original Code Geass, Akito is directed by Kazuki Akane (one of my favorite directors), and as a result, is drastically different. It's admirable that Akane didn't
What do you think of in terms of monsters in Horror? Werewolves, vampires, ghosts, maniacs, zombies, demons, mummies, witches, evil clowns, cosmic beings from other dimensions. And yet scarecrows are on the bottom of the monster list as it seems to me they don't really have the best Horror resume. Oh I'm sure there's an exception or two but that's it. Though a few can be considered cult classics for better or for worse. I wish there's something I could say about the film before diving in as to what I could say about it but there's barely information. Really none. There's a legit unrated DVD release yeah but other than that, nothing. I mean apparently rumor has it that there was supposed to an audio commentary by the film's director for the DVD but didn't get in. Don't know if that's for real though. Maybe a possible Scream Factory release could change that.
I was introduced to this film when I noticed MGM had seem to have gone on a Horror kick as they were selling From Beyond, The Burn
Wes Craven's New Nightmare Review
Remember when I said cynical Horror fans know better than to fall for the title "The Final Nightmare?" Yeah, no shit. New Line was not done yet as the 10th anniversary of the original Nightmare on Elm Street was approaching in 1994 (and hey, not only is the film 30 years old this year, this one is 20 years old now. Awesome!). The conception for the film started when Robert Shaye took notice of Craven's unhappiness with not getting much profit and called up the guy to make amends in which he'll finally be paid for the film he made for them in 1984 as well as getting a share from the sequels and merchandising. Of course, Shaye despite announcing that Freddy is dead, wanted another go ahead but wanted Wes Craven involved to write and direct again this time. He agreed and took a look at the sequels...and could not make sense of any of them as he could not follow the storyline and how to make sense out of all them for a coherent sequel. Nothing new could be done with them...excep
