The world of movies (and comedy) will never be the same again.

This ingeniously creative man has left a legacy of great movies, great performances, and great characters, and in my humble opinion the best one of all is Mr. John Keating from “Dead Poets Society”.

This movie shows how a teacher’s passion for his job, which is to look after and nurture future generations of students to be the best they can be, can drive him to the highest peaks and the lowest of pitches, yet the ups and downs of life don’t make him enjoy the ride any less. Through the best and the worst, it’s the inspiration we give in others and the one that we get back what makes us keep going forward.

Very much like how Robin Williams inspired an entire generation of actors, artists, comedians, and people in general, always with that perennial smile on his face, and a joke in his pocket.

Thank you, you will always be remembered.

Seriously though, help me!

This movie is even worse than Batman Forever! I know everyone else has said this, and I know this “film” has acquired an unbelievable amount of hate over the years, but it’s earned it. It has earned every single one of the negative reviews it’s received because it’s so rottenly bad that it’s not even funny.

The acting is terrible, the special effects look unfinished, the story is stupid, there’s no chemistry, no pacing, no atmosphere, and the setting is just ludicrous. I can’t believe how bad they could treat Batman and the Dark Knight mythology, but this is a new low. I guess the only good thing to come out of this is that we can’t sink lower than this…right?

And now, if you excuse me, I need an aspirin. And a hug. I haven’t been so sad in quite some time.

Featuring: Pirate Dash as Mr. Freeze (Batman: Arkham City) and Pun Pony as Mr. Freeze (Batman: The Animated Series).

So, yeah. Remember when I said that this would be done by the end of the week? I sorely underestimated myself it seems. For the most part, this is done. Shading isn’t my greatest asset, so I’m not going to promise that I’ll put it in (might try later, but I just don’t want to ruin this with horrible shading). 

I have to thank Azure for taking the commission and producing a marvelous sketch. Inking this thing was a wonderful challenge for me and I had a blast working on it. Was my stress relief for the last couple weeks to be honest. Now for the big thing. Bear with me guys, this might get a bit long, cause I got things to say about the whys of this.

The main reason for this picture is that I had been asked a few times what my favorite blogs are and what my favorite of the main cast is. Well, that got me thinking and I ended up merging the two questions to “what are my favorite blogs for each of the main six and cmc?” Thus, we have this. I can tell you right now that choosing was not easy.

Pirate Dash: TJ, man, I don’t know what to say. Pirate Dash was among the first Dash blogs I came across, yet I never really followed until early this year. Why so long? I have no idea. You are an amazing person and you have gotten way too much crap said about you and your art that you just don’t deserve. I love the blog both for the puns and for the art.

Another Twilight Sparkle: ATS, you were the first Twilight Sparkle blog I ever saw and I loved it right from the get go. Some of the earliest things that I can recall are the back and forth you had with Ask Trixie and with PD. You are and always will be my favorite of the Twilight blogs.

Lying Applejack: Why, oh why did I take so long in following you? Seriously. Like with PD, you are blog I had seen pop up while looking at other ones and yet just never followed until only within the last few months. I so wish I had started following sooner. You’re among the few traditional artist blogs out there (I know there are a few) and it amazes me what you can do. 

Demotivated Pinkie: Pinks, you are an astounding being, you really are. I’ve known you only for a few short months and yet I’d consider you among my closest friends. You’ve got a great sense of humor, even if your pun runs make me want to smash my head through a wall at times. You’ve managed to an element out of Pinkie, her love of parties, and yet still keep her personality intact. And…I’m really looking forward to seeing how that little project of ours comes out in the end.

Umm Fluttershy: Dude, you are just astounding with how cute you end up drawing Flutters. Still a new blog, but like I said before, I fell in love with it at first glance. You have a cute art style and I simply look forward to each of your posts.

Raritrap: When I first found your blog, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’ll be honest, I still don’t know what fully to expect and I love it. The situation behind your blog is one that I’m curious to find out about and really would love to simply know what’s going on. You have one of the most interesting Raritys out there, and that’s saying something with how many there are.

Motherly Scootaloo: Okay, now I could honestly go on forever about this one and the same for Sam. Took one heck of a sensitive topic and did an amazing job with it. Supportive as all heck and I won’t lie, one of the biggest factors to why I even started this blog in the first place. The blog itself is like feels central. I both anticipate and fear just about every update because I’m not sure if my heart can take it. Really, there isn’t enough I can say about it.

Post Crusade: Oh boy, I don’t know where to start here. This has been among the most fascinating blogs for me to follow. You use what looks to be a simplistic art style (yet isn’t), the personality you give to each of the cast is fitting and amazing, you’ve been getting better as a story teller since you started as well. You’re among those people I wish I could talk to, but would feel too awkward doing so for some reason.

Teenage Crusaders Answers: Paint Light, you were among my first followers and you’ve stuck around since pretty much the beginning. You’ve got great art, have been awesome to talk to, and you’ve put up with my recent shenanigans with Evening Light. This is a thank you that is far, far, far overdue and I still don’t think it’s enough. 

Want to give an honorable mention to Ask Babs. I would have included them in the picture, but I ran out of funds sadly. They have a wonderful take on Babs and it’s been fun watching the art style there change since the start.

All of these blogs are great and run by wonderful people. Honestly, if you aren’t following any of them, you really should be.

Seriously though, what a fantastic science fiction movie!

I’m impressed in every single imaginable way with this film. I mean, it does have a very basic story and it follows it almost like a connect-the-dots painting, but it does it so well!

The acting is fantastic, especially from Alec Guinness as Obi Wan Kenobi. The heroes are all likeable and worth rooting for. The bad guys are evil but fun at the same time (that Darth Vader guy, what a great baddie he is). The action is engaging and really well shot. But what makes this one so great is the setting.

This movie must have been groundbreaking when it first came out, it has such a unique look and it’s presented so well that you get sucked into the universe without even noticing. Despite all the bounty hunters, aerial assaults, airborne battles, intergalactic chases and dangers that the Rebel Alliance faces, this is still a galaxy I’d like to visit. And this is just the first movie. There’s two more left! I can’t wait to see what they have to offer!

Featuring: Pirate Dash as Han Solo, Flufflepuff as Chewbacca, and Pun as Obi Pun Kenobi.
