It was okay though it did have potential.
First I was a bit hesitant and thought this show was just a bad cash in for the video games. After watching the 2nd season with my cable subscription and the 1st with Hulu and the show is pretty solid. Also, the animation is pretty good with the CGI as well. The jokes are funny and the voice cast is pretty good and the stories notch up with the formula a bit to change the variety every now and then.
Now I’m bingeing this show and it’s getting better now or at least from what I’ve heard. Sonic has a team of friends to help stop Dr. Eggman and his evil plans. Sonic’s friends, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, and Sticks, help him out and they all have their own personalities. Sticks is kinda paranoid with all her conspiracies and it can get annoying fast. Knuckles is kinda dumb, Tails is the tech guy, and Amy is kinda a good two shoes. Eggman is more of Sonic’s frienemy in this show and isn’t as menacing as he was in the other shows.
Even at one point they talk about the multiverse a bit and introduce Shadow and a different version of Eggman that can shapeshift. Hope the DVDs come out here in America soon since they’re already available in Europe though. Also, this cartoon is an Anericain/French production like Miraculous Ladybug and I will get to that show soon as well.
This show is also on Cartoon Network but it’s aired pretty early so either try to wake up early or something like that. I hope the DVDs can make it here in America soon since it’s getting better and the first season is on Hulu if you want to watch more of this show.
Watching this I wasn’t too sure about this show even though I liked the 2003 Ninja Turtles at first. Now the 2012 version of Ninja Turtles is in it’s 8th and it deserves it.
This show also references all kinds of stuff about the turtles. Like the original show, the movies, and even the original comics as well.
The voice cast is all pretty amazing too and everyone puts up a good performance. At some point even the Turtles go into space with the Fugitoid, voiced by David Tennant, and he puts up a good performance. Also Michael Dorn plays a Triceraton in the space arc as well.
The fight scenes are pretty amazing and there some good writing in this show too. So give it a watch when you can, you’ll be glad you did.
cartoon, CGI, feeling, franchise, heart, J.J. Abrams, leading lady, movie, movie review, review, Star Wars, Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: A New Hope, Star Wars: the Clone Wars, Star Wars: the Force Awakens
I didn’t get a chance seeing this in theaters since I thought this movie would be the final nail in the coffin for Star Wars. Also thought Star Wars: the Clone Wars CGI cartoon seemed like every other cartoon when if first saw it. Might give it another chance though since there’s so much praise for the CGI cartoon. People kept telling me J.J. Abrams took over the production for this but I when I wanted to see it in theaters, it was too late.
Then I rented it at the library and Star Wars: The Force Awakens really felt like a Star Wars movie when watching the opening scene. After that the plot feels like Star Wars: A New Hope at times but the movie has a lot of heart and effort. Even has a leading lady and cameos from the original cast as well. Also the CGI in the movie isn’t overdone and everyone sounds amazing in this.
If your a Star Wars fan or if you think the Star Wars franchise is old and dying, give this a watch. Since it really breathes life into an almost dead franchise.
Saw this a few days ago with some friends and it was pretty good. The dragon looked nice compared to the original dragon in Pete’s Dragon and friendly. The kid who played Pete remind me of Mogwai from The Jungle Book when watching this. There’s also a going green message in this movie which seems to be pretty subtle. Unlike the Captain Planet cartoon which kinda shoved the going green message down your throat.
There’s a lot of touching moments as well and the ending was pretty amazing as well. This movie seems pretty good compared to the original, so far. I’ve only seen the original when I was 10 and looking back it seemed okay. Anyway this is a good movie with a lot of heart and I hope other people get a chance to see this when they can.
Watching this on Netflix I was surprised that it got five stars based on my taste. So I gave it a watch and it was amazing, the animation reminded me of Avatar: the Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Even the CGI scenes are pretty amazing and fluid as well.
The show takes place on earth in, I think, the near future and about some misfits kids at the Galaxy Garrison. Then someone in a ship crash lands on earth and warns about an invasion coming soon by an alien empire. Then they find the red lion and then get to some palace where they meet some friendly aliens. Then go find the rest of the lions in the universe.
When Voltron finally forms it’s just amazing and I think the problem with the older Voltron was the human element was kind of bland. Here the human element and story is well written and even at the end it made me want to see more of these stories. There’s only 12 episodes so far and I hope more are coming soon. Made me like Dreamworks TV department and would like to see more of what they have to offer.
There’s also some slight changes about the place and one of the characters, Pidge, gender finally is. Since I guess some people were speculating if Pidge is a boy or a girl in the original Voltron. This show is pretty amazing and give it. Watch when you can since Netflix can pull shows every now and then sometimes.
I saw this on Amazon Prime Video a couple months ago. I was surprised that it also is an exclusive to Amazon Video too. It doesn’t have the puppets like in the original Thunderbirds but CGI and maybe some miniatures as sets for wide angle shots. It starts with International Rescue and the Tracey’s trying to stop the Hood, the main villain of the show.
The scenes where the rockets take off are also amazing and almost like watching a real rocket take off. Also the guy with the glasses is called Brains and he’s Indian now for some reason. He even tags along for a bit too in some episodes as well.
I love the retro future this show takes place in, and it makes it feel almost like the original Thunderbirds at times. You should take a look when you can and have an Amazon Prime Video account. It’s perfect for kids and it isn’t too violent for little kids too so give it a watch when you can.
I saw this in theaters a couple of months ago and it was beautiful. Even though the trailers make it look okay but the overall story is amazing and the cast is superb. Especially the interaction between the bunny and the fox through the movie.
Starts with the bunny growing up and becoming a cop. Then meeting the fox after going to Zootopia as they both uncover a conspiracy through the city. Overall the story, animation, and the writing is top notch and the best we can get from Disney now.
Go and see this if you haven’t since this is an instant classic for Disney.
I first heard about this movie when I was watching Phelous, another movie critic that was doing the Resident Evil movies. Both Live action and CGI versions of the movies. This CGI movie is about Leon trying to stop terrorists from trying to take over the fictional nation of “Eastern Slav Republic” even though it’s called “the country” most of the time. Leon here is also one of the characters from RE 2 who survived and became an American government agent after the the Racoon City incident. It’s explained in RE 4 if that helps at all.
The CGI is better in this movie than the previous CGI movie even though the voice actor for Leon has changed. The CGI is also like I’m watching one of the Resident Evil games with some of the action. The terrorists also use these bio organic weapons or BOW’s from the Umbrella Corporation called Lickers. They control them by using a main las plagas parasite for one person. It allows your personality intact but the main plagas will soon take over them eventually.
The las plagas infected act more like zombies at times in the movie. Even though in RE 4 and 5 they were more like people still. Ada Wong is also in this movie and she meets up with Leon in the middle. Both of the voice actors in this movie I think are amazing in this movie too. Ada also explains to Leon that the country will be purged soon and then she leaves.
Later Ada and Leon find out there’s a las pagas hive under the county’s government building. The terrorists also make their way into the hive as well and to stop the lady president. Then these big guys out of pods come out and try to kill the terrorists and Leon. They get backed near a locked elevator but Ada helps unlock it from somewhere else.
The big guys also surface but then it’s discover they’re Tyrants, people who bonded with the T-Virus instead of it killing them. Leon tries to stop him but they terrorist guy stops the Tyrant with a tank and then shoots him. Then some more Tyrants show up and Leon and terrorist guy try to escape.
Leon make his last stand but then some American jets come by and shred the last two Tyrants. Since the Americans were keeping an eye on him the whole time. Terriost guy tries to kill himself since he doesn’t want to mutate from the main plagas. Leon then takes the gun and says he needs to move forward and seems like he kills him. At the end Ada contacts her superior and says she has a plagas with her. Also terrorist guy lives after the main cast credits roll. Since Leon mentioned something about the risk of having a las pagas removed is death or paralysis. So he shot of his main plagas instead of killing him.
This movie is pretty good compared to the live action RE movies which are kind of boring at times. These CGI movies are pretty good and you should at least give this movie a watch if your a RE fan since newcomers might not understand it.
2005, Big Daddy, blood, Carnival of Souls, CGI, dark, Dead Reckoning, Dennis Hopper, Diary of the Dead, Edgar Allan Poe, Fiddler's Green, John Leguizamo, Mask of the Red Death, Shawn of the Dead, sub-genre, Super Mario Brothers Movie, Survival of the Dead, survivors, Tom Savini, zombies
This movie starts off with the old Universal pictures opening. Then after the opening credits roll the movie starts off in some old town where some survivors try to find medicine. We’re also introduced to this big van/truck/tank called Dead Reckoning that shoots down most of the zombies there. After that the survivors to this island city which is supposed to be their home.
There’s also one place in the middle of it all in called Fiddler’s Green where people forget about the zombies. While everyone else outside lives dirt poor like in the Edgar Allan Poe story Mask of the Red Death where the prince has a big party in the castle and forgets about the plague outside.
There’s also this on guy Cholo, played by John Leguizamo, tries to get a place in Fiddlers Green by persuading the owner. Played by Dennis Hopper and this movie was when I was starting to noticing him. There’s also a sense of deja vu since both actors were in the Super Mario Brothers Movie if you remember that at all.
When Cholo doesn’t get his place he takes Dead Reckoning and threatens to destroy the city. The stars of Shawn of the Dead are in this bar scene also as zombies since George Romero was a fan of the movie. There’s also a zombie, Big Daddy, then gets an army of zombies and slowly make they’re way to the city. When they rise out of the water it like from the scene from Carnival of Souls. That was from what I’ve heard of it that is, but I’ll have to see Carnival of Souls myself one day.
When the main hero get’s to Dead Reckoning he reasons with Cholo and they go back to the city. Which is getting overrun by the zombies and the Ton Savini biker makes a cameo as a zombie. Some of the blood is CGI which is fine by me since he probably had a small budget.
This movie also has a dark setting, literally, which creates a lot of atmosphere. Not as good as Night, Dawn, or Day but maybe because there was so many zombie movies around at the time it came out. I might not review Diary of the Dead or Survival of the Dead since I saw a but of Survival of the Dead and thought it was kind of dumb. Also for Diary of the Dead’s way of filming as a home video horror movie I don’t quite like. That sub-genre is just a little too overused a bit but I like the idea of that anyone can be a filmmaker.
