Art, Criticism, Suppression, and SpongeBob
The series SpongeBob SquarePants has been rather lackluster. It suffered from massive seasonal rot, and resulted in a Family Guy-esque tendency to overindulge itself on disturbing content and character derailment. (Although, I have heard that Season 9 shows signs of improvement. I’ll have to check that out at some point.) That said, there are quite a few episodes I missed due to that loss of interest. One of them came to my attention as it was reviewed by TheMysteriousMrEnter (or Mr. John Enter) as part of a list of episodes that showcased Patrick Star’s derailment from a lovable oaf into a thoughtless ass. This episode, entitled “The Googly Artiste”, reminded me a lot of an earlier episode, “Artist Unknown”. From there, I started to take a look at how both episodes relate to a trio of themes: what art is, how criticism comes into play, and how artistic capabilities are suppressed. It is interesting where a review can take you, isn
LOK: The Ultimatum Review
Hello everyone. Well, after last week’s exciting episode, does today’s episode manage to keep that momentum going? Let’s find out in this review!
What I Liked
It was pretty cool seeing Mako and Bolin’s family once again, but the surprising stand out role here was Yin, their grandmother. She had several surprisingly funny but also emotional moments.
For the funny, the first standout is when she meets Korra and Asami. I admit, it was strange that she initially didn’t seem to think much of Korra – an admittedly paranoid worry came to mind, if you know what I mean...- butshe seemed to quickly get over that, and it led to a hilariously awkward moment with them three and Mako. Kinda nice to see the creators making fun of their past...well, ‘dabbling’ into romance.
Oh, and let’s not forget her last scene. Everyone’s runs off to do something important, but Yin? ‘I’m

OH, SCRAP YOU, CN, YOU KILLED THE TITANS!
THIS SHOW SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKS!
Written by Tohokari-Steel)
Steel sighed in irritation before looking up, “Once upon a time, there was a show called Teen Titans. Along with Spider-Man, this was the thing that helped shape my view on superheroes. I only saw most of the first two seasons, but they had comedy, drama, memorable characters, and some really memorable stories. So, I went into a bit of a funk when I heard that it ended, in the words of T.S. Elliot, not with a bang, but w
Action: Action RPing is probably the most basic of the styles. Normally denoted as *text* or -text-, action is generally done in the first person but can vary between RP’ers. Action RPs are often really minimal and straight forward.

My Thoughts on Transformers Beast Wars
I began to watch another Transformers cartoon series: Beast Wars. This show is kind of a continuation of the G1 series, and it takes place centuries after the Autobot-Decepticon Wars. The Autobots and the Decepticons are now both extinct, they are now replaced with the Maximals (descendants of the Autobots) and the Predacons (descendants of the Decepticons). Both the Maximals and the Predacons crash-land into a primitive planet (probably prehistoric Earth), which is full of Energon crystals, and because of the high Energon content of the planet, the Transformers can only stay in their robot modes for a limited amount of time.
The first Maximals to crash into the planet are Optimus Primal (Beast mode: Gorilla), Cheetor, whose probably the youngest Maximal, (Beast mode: Cheetah), Rattrap, the wise-ass, (Beast mode: Rat), Rhinox, the medic/inventor (Beast mode: Rhino) and Dinobot, the hotheaded one (Beast mode: Velociraptor). The latter was formerly a Predacon. However, as the show goes o
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review
A group of mutated warriors face off against an evil kingpin who wants to take over New York. This is Rumor Control, here are the facts. Since it was revealed that a new Ninja Turtles film would be produced by Michael Bay the internet went nuts. Every bit of news that came out form the movie was met with immediate criticism and outrage. The whole world wrote it off as a bad film which may have been the right mind set since the film holds an abysmal 19% on Rotten Tomatoes. I, however, find these reviews to be overly critical and miss the point. I see this as mob mentality, a sort of unwritten rule that Michael Bay must be despised no matter what. Granted the man is deserving of criticism, mostly for his rampant humor (which tends to ruin his films more often then making them funny) and lack of focus on characters but I still find most of his films to be simple, dumb and fun entertainment. So I went in to TMNT with an open mind (after all I am the only person in the world who loves the t
My review on Judge Dredd part 2.WHAT MAKES JUDGE DREDD DIFFERENT?
What makes Judge Dredd different from other superheroes?
Judge Dredd: He is a police that has full jurisdictional power. This means that he can personally sentence criminals with either prison or execution. He does not tolerate vigilantes or anyone who tries to take the law in their own hands.
Superheroes: Usually superheroes do not kill criminals because it would make themselves “criminals” or it would turn them “evil” and their morality, which I find sometimes stupid; why defeat a criminal when they know that he or she will just escape again and kill lots of innocent people, it is like a circle which can turn boring really fast.
Judge Dredd: The many things I like with Dredd are that his outfit is more of an actual uniform and he has no superpowers which makes him more realistic.
Superheroes: One of the things I do not like with superheroes is that they usually wear some colorful outfit, I used to like them but now I think tha
The Giver: Movie Review
The Giver: Movie Review
Based off a children’s book of the same name (when the young adult genre of novels did not yet exist), “The Giver” is about a society that has done away with memories of the past, emotions, and color to keep people from feeling hate, jealousy, and envy. Jonas (played by Brenton Thwaites: Oculus, The Signal, Maleficent) has become old enough to be assigned to a job in the community, but he doesn’t seem to fit for any job specifically. He is given the job Receiver of Memories. He is given all the memories of the past from the previous Receiver of Memories: the Giver (played by Jeff Bridges: True Grit, King Kong (1976), The Big Lebowski, Iron Man) and all the emotions so that he can help guide the community with his knowledge of the past. But Jonas realizes that the people of the community is missing out on all the good emotions and doing terrible things for the good of “sameness”.
What I Liked:
