Mulan (2020) - movie review

There were two to three movies from the Disney live action remake list that I was very much looking forward to see them. Aladdin, The Jungle Book, and Mulan. Because I know they can do something different with those movies and don't have to be the exact same from the original. They nailed it with T…

The Fandom (documentary) - review

For about three decades, there had been many different takes of documentaries on furries. There was the infamous ones back in the 1990s and 2000s and some good decent ones more recently. Let's just say the furry fandom itself doesn't have a great reputation and not sure if any professional document…

Hamilton the musical - review

Ever since I heard of this musical, all I keep hearing that it's good. Everytime I go on iTunes, the Hamilton soundtrack is among the top selling albums in music. But, no one said why it's good or how it's good or anything at all. Just that it's good. I wanted to see it so I can see what the hype i…

Artemis Fowl - movie review

It's been a long while since I've did a movie review. Let alone a new one or even a journal of any kind of that matter. Troubled times. But, as of this weekend, a brand new movie that I was able to see was just released through streaming. Since there are no new movies coming out in theaters until f…

Onward - movie review

Pixar has made many great movies. From Toy Story to Inside Out. Lately, they've been doing more sequels than originals. So, it's a breath of fresh air to many I assume that a original Pixar movie came out. From what I've seen on the trailers and tv spots, it looks to be a heartwarming film with fun…

Sonic the Hedgehog (movie) - movie review

I'm not a die hard Sonic fan, but I am a fan. I grew up playing few of the games and watching both versions of the Saturday morning cartoon shows. I never own a Sega console (I was more of a Nintendo kid myself), but everytime I have a friend or neighbor that has one, I come over and visit to play…

Birds of Prey - movie review

(Note: I refuse to say the rest of the title because A) It's too long and B) It's a ridiculous add-on.) I'm one of the few DC cinematic universe apologists. I like all of the DC films that are part of the DC cinematic universe so far. Especially with the way they were going at the beginning. Grante…

Lady & The Tramp (2019) - movie review

I think this is the first time I ever reviewed a brand new movie that I didn't see in a theater or came out in a theater. I'm not a big fan of watching brand new movies strictly for streaming because in my opinion, it's better to watch a movie on the big screen than on the small screen. Or even a p…

Spies in Disguise - movie review

Blue Sky Studios is probably the most unique animation studios there is. It went from a strong start to a couple hits to almost non existent. Blue Sky definitely has potential and they showed it, but they hadn't compete head to head to Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, or even Illumination. They just need…

Star Wars Ep. 9: The Rise of Skywalker - movie review

I remember when I saw a Star Wars movie for the first time. I was in the second grade when a sub decided to have the class watch Return of the Jedi. When I first saw it, I was hooked. Begged my parents to rent the other two at a video store and became a huge fan of the franchise. This franchise and…

Jumanji: The Next Level - movie review

I'm a big fan of the original 1995 one and I really enjoyed the "sequel" Welcome to the Jungle. It was a nice twist to the story and the actors playing the characters are really good at what they do. So, when they announced another sequel, I was already looking forward to it. Wondering what else th…

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - movie review

When I was a very little kid, there were two shows I watched a lot. Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. I grew up watching those programs on PBS and learned a lot growing up. Both of those shows held a very deep connection in my heart. So, I was already pretty excited to see this movie as I…

Frozen 2 - movie review

I remember when the first movie came out. Hard to believe it was six years ago. Doesn't feel like it came out that long ago, didn't it? Felt like it came out last year with all the popularity around it. It just seems to never die. Every Halloween, the majority of little girls wearing costumes are e…

Charlie's Angels (2019) - movie review

When I first heard that there'll be a reboot of a Charlie's Angels movie, I wasn't at all excited. Mainly because the show was meh for me and the early two movies weren't so great and doesn't hold up well. Though, the trailers of it made it look like good action fun. So, wanted to see it for myself…

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil - movie review

I think a lot of people know about my opinions of the Maleficent movie. I didn't like it at all. Maleficent wasn't Maleficent at all. The story was very weak.

Abominable - movie review

Dreamworks has this very interesting track record in their animated movies. It's a mix of great movies to mediocre to bad.

Hobbs & Shaw - movie reivew

I'm a fan of the Fast & Furious franchise. I think this is the only franchise where it evolved from one thing to another and then another.

Child's Play (2019) - movie review

When I heard they're remaking Child's Play, my first thought was, "It's going to be terrible." Mainly because most, if not all, horror remakes had been terrible.

Toy Story 4 - movie review

I'm a big fan of the Tory Story franchise. I love all of the movies. Out of all the movie franchises in cinematic history, Toy Story is one of the few that hasn't had a bad one at all. In fact, it's the only movie franchise that has all the movies 98% or higher on Rotten Tomatoes. So, when Toy Stor…

Men In Black: International - movie review

I remember when the first Men In Black came out over 20 years ago. It was one of the biggest movies of that time.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 - movie review

My opinion on Illumination as a whole is that it's a animation studio that doesn't want to make great movies. They want to make generic, mediocre, family friendly movies. And so far, they're pretty much the most successful animated studios that have not made a single failure either critically and (…

John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum - movie review

Aquaman - movie review

Growing up, I wasn't much of a fan of Aquaman. I was more of a fan of Superman and Batman. Guess the reason for that is because I grew up during the time that Aquaman was treated like a joke.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXz.....35&list=WL So, a YouTuber decided to do an interview of a furry named Kero. And it was pretty positive. Even though at the beginning the tuber was more into the sex part, but glad he didn't go into it mostly.

What's ruining Cartoon Network?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUw.....43&list=WL This pretty much tells us what's going on with Cartoon Network now in days. I remember when Cartoon Network was introduced in the 90's.

War for the Planet of the Apes - movie review

I'm a pretty big fan of the Planet of the Apes movies. I've seen the entire original franchise. My favorites are the first one and Conquest. I even like the Tim Burton remake. I know it's bad compared to the original, but the apes costumes and make-up were excellent to look at. A much better improv…

Despicable Me 3 - movie review

I'm not a huge fan of this franchise. Mostly because I think the movies are just ok. They're not terrible, just ok.

I love Disney and all the movies they bring joy. Well, the good ones that is. But, even though I'm a fan. It's been a very long time since I'…

New TMNT movie teaser trailer is out

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VZZ.....CC51E4BF35B840 Looks pretty cool. Though, it seems to have the same type of hype that Michael Bay did for Transformers. I'm sensing a pattern here. But, might turn out ok as an action flick. The turtles look kind of ugly, though. But, at least it's not Teenag…

Muppets Most Wanted

Ever since I was a wee little kid. I've been a fan of the Muppets. Not as die hard or hardcore as some others, but I am a fan. Ever since I saw my first Muppet movie, The Great Muppet Caper, I've been watching them every since. From the syndication episodes of The Muppet Show, to some of the big sc…

Mr. Peabody & Sherman

When I heard they are making another one of the classic cartoons from the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show, I became disinterested immediately. In the past they made movies based on that show, Dudley DoRight and Rocky & Bullwinkle. And both were HORRIBLE!! But, I did saw the posters, news, and trailers and…

Did anybody catch the Olympics Closing Ceremony?

They had three giant animatronic animal characters going around the stage. They look so life like. Man. Simply amazing and the way they douse the flame was just spectacular. I loved it. Eat your heart out China. :)

The Lego Movie

When I first saw the posters and the trailers. I thought it looks to be the stupidest movie ever could be made. A movie about legos. Hollywood must be very desperate. But, as time wore on. I start to think that this movie is the type that shouldn't be taken seriously. I mean, it's a movie about leg…

Robocop remake

I always have a prejudice for cinema remakes. Especially ones that are remakes of past successful films. Like the latest remake of a Verhoeven sci-fi classic Robocop. A few years ago, they remade one of his movies Total Recall and it bombed. It was literally the same except with the differences of…

Another video game based movie! Ratchet & Clank

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDDHd-reopY At least this movie will come out a lot closer than Sly Cooper. Now I'm starting to question this as to whether or not this is a publicity stunt for more games rather than an actual movie. Though, I hope it's real as I will be seeing it when it comes out.…

A Sly Cooper animated movie?!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulkICZDTc_Q Just ran across this and I was blown away. Looks really good and the animation just looks spectacular. I for one can't wait to see it in theaters when it comes out. If it's real. Though, I'm surprised they're actually doing Sly Cooper and not Star Fox or e…

RIP Justin "JewWario" Camical

http://lezgetreal.com/2014/01/justi.....mical-dead-42/ I heard about this through a video made by Jamietude of thatfellowinthecoat.com. Apparently he committed suicide yesterday. This is truly sad. Even though I don't know much about him. Only heard of him though thatguywiththeglasses.com and saw h…
