Writing a three dimensional villain with personal goals, growth and a intriguing story arc is very important to the success of a story. Would Star Wars be so legendary without Darth Vader? How about Batman, without The Joker? These amazing stories all have incredible antagonists.
The new Netflix Original Castlevania is no different. Before meeting the hero, the first episode is spent introducing the villain of the series. Vlad Dracula. A vulnerable and tragic figure with a heartbreaking backstory that gives his actions meaning. He causes a lot of pain but at the same time you wonder if he is justified in what he’s doing.
The protagonist is a former demon hunter, now drunken drifter named Trevor Belmont. A interesting personality in that he isn’t your typical hero that just wants to do the right thing. In fact, he doesn’t want to help. He doesn’t care. But must act when he finds himself in the middle of the situation.
Heroes are at there best when they have personal demons they must conquer. Nobody wants to watch a perfect goodie two shoes save the world because real life isn’t like that. Real life isn’t black and white. People have problems. The best heroes, like Belmont, are the ones with issues that real people can relate too.
The animation is excellent and the art looks professional. This isn’t a cheap Saturday morning cartoon. It looks beautiful. But the care to the story and characters stand out the most. Castlevania is based on an old Komani video game from the 80s. Video game movies and television series like Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Tomb Raider and Super Mario don’t have a great track record. But Castlevania could quite possibly be the greatest video game apdatation of all time.
A twisted and dark fantasy adventure with hints of black comedy from the mind of Warren Ellis, the creator of Red, Transmetropolitan and Iron Man: Extremis.
It’s from a movie called City Hunter and it’s been years since I watched it, but it’s a spy/heist movie taking place on a cruise ship. It’s based on a manga, which I’m sure is less ridiculous, but I mean… come on- Jackie Chan, dudes.
The scene where he’s dressed like Chun Li is because there was a fight taking place in an arcade, he gets thrown into a game cabinet and hallucinates for a good fifteen minutes that his enemies are character in Street Fighter.
It is the best scene.
Jackie Chan… I mean just look at his face. LOOK AT IT.
You know its like he saw this bit in the script and was like ‘THIS IS THE PART I WAS BORN TO PLAY!’
So anyways, I feel like it is my duty as your weird drunken aunt from the internet to encourage you to watch this cinematic masterpiece of Chinese film.

request: Hey! I wanted to request something, if you can. Like the reader is a Latina, and she’s in exchange from Argentina (or any other place), and she does speak English, but also likes to interweave English with Spanish, and sometimes when she’s angry speak in her mother language, the losers club don’t understand what she’s saying, but love it so much. Thank you! 💕 by @artizapander
a/n: So… I had a lock at the end of the imagine, so I apologize if it got bad
The girl let out a long sigh, running a hand through her hair. She was exhausted, completely exhausted. But, at time she looked at the tidy house, she felt more relieved. She has never been a fan of changes, because she have to abandone all of her friends and the feel of longing is the worst part of it.
“Y/N, are you ready for your first day?” her mother’s voice broke the kitchen silence.
“No- estoy muy nerviosa, and if it’s not the way it was in Argentina? Did we really have to move here?”
