Welcome!

Today, the Roman Reviews is officially open! 

What is the Roman Reviews?

Well, the Roman Reviews is basically a place where authors, students and some others can send their essays, stories, and other creative things to, where they will be reviewed and given an honest feedback! It’s incredibly hard for authors to get feedback on their stories where it’s more than just a fleeting “I love it!” from a friend. And that’s why I’m here!

How does this work? How can I send my story?

Well, for those who are sending in essays and stories, well, there’s a minor problem. I need to be able to see them! There is an easy fix for this, though! For those who are needing help with their essays, I know how precious those things can be. And so, you may not trust google drive! For this, I offer you an alternative. You can either email me at theroman.reviewst@gmail.com with the whole document, of which I will read over and then either email you or post the genuine review online here, or both! Sometimes posts are lost and emails aren’t, or emails are lost and posts aren’t! Totally understandable. I’m here to help you guys, of course.

You can send your story or essay by reading over these guidelines (they’re incredibly short) and then submitting the link to your story/essay or submitting a note that says you emailed it to me! After the link or note, please state whether you want me to 1. reblog the story with my review or make a seperate post. or 2. post the review of the essay online or just email it to you. 

Why should I do this?

Well, I’m not here to tell you how to live your life, but as a writer myself, I know that I’m constantly in need of someone looking over it and giving an honest opinion, as well as places where I could fix what was bothering me! And this is just me giving the opportunity to you guys! I want to help you guys get better at writing! And the only way that I can help is by giving feedback!

Plus, it’s free.

How can I trust you?

I’m going to be honest. I could say a lot of things about how I’m super duper trustworthy, etc. etc., however, I guess the easiest way for me to say this is that if you suspect me of stealing from you at any point in time, you are welcome to flame me up on @romanthewriter at any point. You can slander me all you want and discredit this account, and just know that you will be in the right, because it is hard being a writer. It’s even harder when you want to share but are scared of people stealing your stuff. I’m not going to. As I stated before, this is all so I can help you guys become better writers. I hope this eases you.

I think that that covers anything.


So with that final statement: The Roman Reviews is Open!

also, if you guys would reblog this, that would be absolutely amazing!

Hey guys, thanks for keeping this great resource moving. Question: Right now in 2018, what's an emerging illustrator's best bet to find portfolio reviews? It looks like the ArtOrder has stopped offering reviews and Spectrum Live is cancelled this year! Are there any other particularly good conventions you'd suggest visiting? Is politely, patiently e-mailing ADs to ask for a review worth trying?

Well it’s your lucky day. “How do I get portfolio reviews?” is the #1 question we get here on DearAD. Art Order was pioneering the online review system, but they have decided to focus on helping artists manufacture and publish, and have less time for development. And that’s great, you should check out all the projects they’re doing!

Meanwhile, the need for artists to get a set of professional eyes on their portfolios and their WIPs is still great. ADs run themselves ragged at conventions trying to give as many reviews as we can, but we can’t talk to everyone, and what about in-between cons? And what about the artists who can’t travel to cons?

So we’ve set up one of the founding Art Directors of Drawn + Drafted (and a secret agent here on DearAD) to roll out online access to professional help online. Zoë Robinson has over a decade as a professional Art Director and she’s available (at certain times) to talk to you about your work. Although her specialty is in Fantasy Art and the Gaming Industry, she is qualified to help artists of all types evaluate their work. Zoë is famous amongst us other art directors as a “finishing school” — she polishes up and recommends artists to other ADs constantly.

She’s set up a cool online booking tool and some test rates for a few tiers of contact for artists. I would take advantage now, because at those prices I think she’s going to be swarmed and need to charge more. 

Now, before you say “waitasec, why do we have to pay, portfolio reviews are free at cons!” think about this: Art Directors are not required to do portfolio reviews as part of our jobs. We do it as a service to the artist community. And those times we are at conventions we set aside the time as a time to give back and develop the next generation of artists. However, the rest of the time we have very busy jobs and are totally swarmed with the meat and potatoes work of Art Direction. For an AD to make themselves available to artists at their convenience is a rare opportunity. Take advantage while you can, before she gets overwhelmed! 

If this service works (aka artists use it and Zoë doesn’t get completely burnt out) then we’ll try to add more Art Directors to the system.

Get booking!

Midnight Sun (2018)

I was actually surprised by this one. At first i didn’t wanna go because i don’t like Bella Thorne as an actress, but she was actually good in this movie. My boyfriend wanted to see this way more than i did and it was hilarious when we got to the movie theatre and there were mostly girls and a few boyfriends here and there haha. Even the guys started bawling at this movie too so if you’re gonna go see it get your waterproof mascara.

The story is about a teenage girl named Katie Price. She has a rare genetic condition that doesn’t let her stay in the sun because her internal organs would shut down. After watching her next door neighbor pass by her house everyday for 10 years she actually comes face to face with him on their graduation day. He gets drawn by her beautiful singing and asks her out. 

The movie was actually quite good and i think if you liked A Walk To Remember and The Fault In Our Stars you will like this one too. Patrick Schwarzenegger is a hottie so i’m sure you’re gonna love seeing him. In my opinion is one of the best teen movies i’ve seen lately. Hope you’ll like it and feel free to tell me your opinions.

Good Stuff: Ballmastrz 9009

An Adult Swim Sports Anime? I. AM. GAME!

Superjail! was…the best. Like, sweep away Rick & Morty and you had one of the most perfected adult cartoons around, and its madness still lingers in other shows I’ve seen. But now, the creator of Superjail! has plotted a comeback with Ballmastrz, a somewhat anime that can be considered adult swim’s first ever! “Umm, what about IGPX?” OH. You’re right, but….. no? No. Besides, this is something genuinely original from them and I can safely say I am hooked on every corner.

And I already got a favorite character

First hand, it establishes everything right away. How this future came to be, who our “heroes” are, how everything looks, etc. Like Superjail!, it wastes no time giving you what it promises while never coming off as rushed. Though when it expositions about the game, it does it in the most the in your face type of way that adds to the colorfully batshit style. And said batshit style is a flavor I can get behind, a diverse looking world with color and no real need for explaining itself. There’s no clear direction of how it wants to go, even when it looks like it wants one, but like Superjail!, it doesn’t have to have one just yet. You’re either along with it and you just don’t care. Either way, the rules have been set and the game’s getting started.

Ready to get your balls ablazin’?

Another thing that’s working here is the animation. Can you classify this as an anime? Well, you can, western anime. Just say Japan is making flamboyant styled cartoons. But, we can say it does things right the way anime is typically done: shoddy and lazy looking in some areas, well adjusted in other areas, and glorious sakuga in them special spots. Like Teen Titans and how they used a chibi anime style for their visual gags, except here it’s more rough and evil looking. And if there’s one thing about Christy Karacas that I will always respect, it’s that with his style, he puts the zaniness in the animation where it counts the most; it’s that sakuga that makes this work all for the better. There are even moments where I can see jittery outlines of the characters, reminiscent of Ed, Edd, ‘n Eddy and Dr. Katz. He’s definitely improved after a while, and this helps it be original in its own right while stealing notes from what you typically find in other anime.

Certainly better than whatever Blue Sky thought this was

I’ll admit, my love for Superjail! is essentially what’s making me love this, but I will say that a problem might arise from this series and that’s the lack of character depth. I mean, Superjail! was that no holds barred, kills by the minute type of cartoon, but the characters (especially the warden) established themselves almost immediately and that added a humane contrast to the mercilessly hedonistic nature. Here, it’s more of a slow build where beyond the more focused protagonists, i.e. Gaz and Ace, we just get caricatures and cliched anime tropes humanized. But, I have faith in improvement.

You could say things are coming back home

I mean, fuck, what can I say? I love anime and while I’m not a good fan of sports anime, I’m down for something of this magnitude of thrill snorting insanity. Granted it’s filled with anime cliches, but Karacas’s style is what gives them a new flavor. Sure, we can say “Style over substance” and call that a negative, but I say a style like is worth sticking around to get into the substance. It’s like a parfait, where digging deeper can be slow yet satisfying. Won’t put this on the “Best of 2018″ right now, but I believe it’ll get there.

And I could always go for some Redline-esque hellblazing fun

The show, for its many twisty turns, belongs squarely to its most consistent leads, its equally cursed children: Boyle and Clemmett, two fine English actors who, at 23 and 24, are as exceptional a leading pair as those Mormon boys or Wicked girls. Reprising their West End roles, both young men are formidable individually but meteoric together, specifically in their happy seizure of the central theme of this and Rowling’s saga in general: friendship. Good friendship. The kind of friendship that trounces ostracization, that vanquishes evil, that draws power from the triumph of an inside joke as much as a shared tragedy. Boyle plays Scorpius, ostensibly Hogwarts’ biggest outcast, with a ferocious nerve and mischievous wit; he’s funny and heartbreaking and applies a vexing if effective quantity of outbursts to service his character’s epiphanic moments. Clemmett, on the opposite hand, is an understated wonder; as the embittered but well-intentioned Albus, he has the less showy and perhaps more prohibitive role, but with a boyish charm Clemmett adroitly dodges pratfalls of teenage anguish and “Ugh, dad!” resentment to remain hugely likable and empathetic even as he creates disaster after disaster for himself. The sparks the two actors create together are so dynamic, their occasional absence onstage does not go unnoticed.
—  MARC SNETIKER, Entertainment Weekly review
At the center of it all is Parker’s Harry, grown up and more confident but still pensive and troubled as ever, plagued by memories of the orphaned boy who slept under the stairs at his aunt and uncle’s home, and the reluctant hero he was forced to become. It’s a finely nuanced performance, with gravitas and heart, particularly as he wrestles with and eventually overcomes his struggles as a parent. Even with the sweet sentimentality of the closing scenes, what lingers most about Parker’s characterization is the stoical knowledge he carries with him that every moment of happiness contains the promise of more pain to come.

114 Thoughts I Had While Reading ACOT&R

Isle of Dogs (2018)

For Isle of Dogs NOT to be remembered when the Academy announces the nominees for Best Animated Picture next January, 2018 will have to be a stellar year. Beautiful, funny, emotional, unconventional, and bold, this is the kind of film you can’t forget.

Set twenty years in the future, in Japan, Megasaki City’s Mayor Kobayashi (voiced by Kunichi Nomura) uses a sudden dog-flu epidemic as an opportunity to banish all the city’s dogs to Trash Island. Six months later, his adopted, orphaned nephew Atari (voiced by Koyu Rankin) travels to the island in order to rescue his beloved pet, Spot.

This is a stop-motion film, a beautiful one that looks particularly spectacular on the big screen. There, everything is blown up so big you can really appreciate the details required to bring this story to life. Combined with director Wes Anderson’s meticulous cinematography and you have a motion picture in which every second looks good enough to be hung on your wall. 

The second thing you need to know about Isle of Dogs is that nearly all of the humans’ dialogue is in Japanese. This isn’t a foreign film and for the most part, there are no subtitles; it’s another quirk that makes the film so distinct. When Atari lands on Trash Island, he is rescued by five dogs: Rex (Edward Norton), King (Bob Balaban), Duke (Jeff Goldblum), Boss (Bill Murray), and Chief (Bryan Cranston). None of them understand Japanese… because no dog REALLY understand what their masters say unless they’re accentuating their message with hand gestures. Did the film need to do this? No, but you’ll be glad it did. It makes for many hilarious moments and somehow makes this crazy story seem a lot less loony. It’s hard to pinpoint why. I know reading it makes it sound like the director threw darts at a dictionary and picked elements at random, but the non-obvious choices combine together with the humor to create a delicious blend you would’ve never imagined on your own.

There are times where, between the laughs, the film will throw in a moment that’s genuinely emotional or sad. When they come, it’s like a sharp turn in a rollercoaster. You don’t expect it but again, they feel completely at home.

Wes Anderson doesn’t make forgettable movies. His work always brings in weird little laughs that don’t necessarily make you burst out loud but stick with you and stamp a smile on your face. It’s like an offbeat fairytale that also includes murder and heartbreak and still manages to be charming. The only thing preventing it from getting full marks is one character (voiced by Greta Gerwig) that feels slightly out of place. Otherwise, Isle of Dogs is wonderfully imaginative and original. It teems with detail, it’s funny in the most unexpected ways and a joy to watch. (Theatrical version on the big screen, April 15, 2018)
