Best Ed Moment #1

Ed’s introductory through season 1 is the best, but it is also strange. He is nothing like how he is portrayed through the final scenes.

He is a slow dim witted kid who loves hanging out with his friends. Ed has an unknown disability, but does not let it get in the way of anything. Even his friends are not bothered by his slowness.

Viewers learn a lot about being different, along with being patient.

Ed loves monster movies, he is not the cleanliest person, but loves his friends. His friends make him who he is. They make him see the brightness when he comes from a dark life.

In canon he is the oldest of the Eds, and acts as a brotherly figure towards his friends.

He also has the best one liners and quotes out of any character. Whenever I have had a bad day Ed cheers me up through his witty optimism.

NEW MST3K IS HERE AND IT’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!

  • I can actually HEAR Jonah, unlike Joel or Mike.
  • Gypsy has a new voice and some of the best one liners

  • like, 500% more singing than previous series, which is great

  • HOLY FUCK THE KICKSTARTER LIST 
  • I like them ending each ep with the worst scene in the movie.

Why I Loved Zootopia’s Judy Hopps

Very few times do I ever find a character that ends up meaning more to me than a real person would. And when I entered the cinema for Zootopia, I didn’t think this would happen. From the trailers, it seemed like Nick would be the one I loved and Judy one I’d be indifferent with.

Well, well, never was I more wrong.

Not that I don’t love Nick. I love him, but Judy…gosh, I fell in love with Judy from the very first minute. She was everything I loved in a character, and I ended up rooting for her so much throughout the movie. There are plenty of reasons why I love this energizer bunny, but here are my top four:

She tries.

One of the rules of Pixar’s storytelling is that you admire a character more for his/her trying than his/her successes. I’ m well aware this isn’t Pixar, but for Judy, that was the exact reason why I loved her so much from the beginning.

From the very first scene, I fell in love with how determined she was. I was rooting for her to succeed because I saw how much she wanted it – I saw how much she was trying. Even if the world told her it wasn’t possible, that it wasn’t common at all for a bunny to be a cop, she didn’t listen to ‘em. Instead, she held her head up high and said, “Well then, I guess I’ll have to be the first.”

Since that line, I knew I was going to spend the entire movie hoping she succeeded.

She’s clever as heck.

Damn, this bunny is clever. I’m so happy Disney didn’t just make another cute but ditzy heroine like Rapunzel or Anna – man, this girl’s got the BRAINS. I was so impressed with how she got out of certain situations, like when she got Nick to solve the crime with her, or how she got to go inside the car without having to climb the fence.

Also, her training montage clearly shows how she uses her bunnyness to her best ability. She doesn’t give up because she’s small or weak – instead, she uses her abilities as a bunny to succeed.

Not to mention her one-liners are pretty clever. Like that multiplying joke.

She has flaws and makes mistakes.

One of the reasons why I didn’t like Rapunzel or Anna was how…perfect they were. Even their supposed flaws were passed off as cute or quirky. Well, you won’t get any of that in this movie. Judy Hopps is flawed and the movie doesn’t make light of it either. Instead, they use her flaws to create a more wonderful character – and to further preach the themes, of course.

I guess it’s pretty cliché for me to say I love a character for their flaws, but I’ve noticed that the characters people usually hate, I love. I love characters whose flaws and mistakes aren’t brushed aside. I don’t think Judy Hopps is hated (her plushies sold out faster than Nick’s, and for some reason, that actually kind of makes me happy) but I’m glad even she made mistakes. Mistakes that had consequences.

(No spoilers, of course.)

She and Nick have the greatest chemistry in a Disney movie ever.

Okay, so this is more like a bonus reason. But don’t the two have such great chemistry together?! How could you not ship them? (Doesn’t matter if it’s platonic or romantic.)

So there you go, fellow Disney lovers! Did you guys love Zootopia as much as I did?

anonymous asked:

Hey Jax what do you think are the Best incarnations of the Ninja Turtles from the 1987, 2003, and 2012 shows? Like Best Leo, best Mikey, Best Donnie, and Best Raph if that makes sense? Just curious. Love the blog, new follower

Oh sure I dont mind answering this. I’ve answered it before in massive post so I’ll just go off that. 

Lets start with Leonardo

Leonardo 1987: This version of Leo was the charming superhero save the day type. He was always helpful and always wanted to do good things. He also got very carried away with things like readin, playing video games, etc. But he was still a very likable character. 


Leonardo 2003: This version of Leo was probably the most well-developed so far of the 3 versions. He was very serious and focused on his training but when you see the hell he went through you understand why. Hell he gets a permanent part of his shell removed and he is so dedicated to protecting his family you can’t help but feel for the guy. He was also an extreme badass in combat.

Leonardo 2012: This Leo is definitely more like an actual teenager than the other 2. He’s a big nerd and loves anime and star trek knock offs. He is a still a badass though (especially in the season 2 finale). Sometimes he can be a bit of a jerk though but its understandable when your brothers don’t listen to you and other times its cause he IS a teenager and acts like it. Seeing him cope with his injury and overcome it in this season is making me like him more and more and he’s really becoming a Badass

Winner: My favorite is definitely the 2003 Leo still, after you see what he goes through and how he overcomes it I cant help but root for him.

Michelangelo 1987: Okay I’m just gonna say it. I friggin love this Mikey. He’s so likable, he’s so funny and HIS FRIGGIN VOICE! I absolutely love Surfer voices. “CHYAH DUDE COWABUNGA” No one can give a battle cry like this Michelangelo. Cowabunga became a household saying when I was a kid at the beach and pool. The only bad thing I can say about this mikey is the fact they took his nunchucks away in later seasons cause they were “too violent” and replaced them with a grappling hook which was lame.


Michelangelo 2003: I liked the fact this Mikey was one of the most competent fighters out of all the turtles. He was creative and had a spider-man way of talking so much his enemies could not concentrate…especially Raph. Though he had many negative qualities. Don’t get me wrong I love Mikey but this one would always make corny jokes and references and then brag how he is was a champion in an Inter-dimensional tournament. That got really irritating at times.

Michelangelo 2012: Greg Cipes was perfectly cast as Michelangelo. He was born to be him and this Mikey is a pretty fun and a likable dude. The only gripe I have with this Mikey is they make him to be a straight out idiot at times, like he needs someone to hold his hand. That is my one gripe with him. Mikey is my fav and I get that he likes to goof around but he should always have a filter of when its right to and when to be serious. They’ve been fixing that through the season so I’m not too worried and he always comes through in the end.

Winner: Come on dudes it goes to the 80s Michelangelo, To me this is the greatest interpretation of Mikey we’ve had so far and GOD I LOVE HIS VOICE. No one can say Cowabunga like him. I had the biggest Geek out moment when the 2012 brought back the 1987 turtles and we heard Townsend Coleman say his Iconic Cowabunga!! Best Mikey EVER!

Donatello 1987 and 2003: Honestly when I go back and rewatch both series they come off as pretty similar. Though 1987 Donnie wanted to be accepted by the whole world while 2003 Don didn’t and just cared for making inventions to expand his knowledge and to help his brothers. Though 2003 did become a main focus of the later seasons as he was trying so hard to get splinter back.

Donatello 2012: This Donnie is very eccentric and excitable and he’s madly in love with April (eecchhh not a fan of that). He’s always making inventions like the previous 2 but his main focus is to make retro mutagen to stop the Kraang. Honestly some episodes he can really get on my nerves but one episode I really loved him in was the Episode THE PULVERIZER where he was teaching Timothy how to use a Bo Staff and how to train for Ninjitsu.

Winner: to be blunt This is just a Tie

Raphael 1987: This Raph is waaayyy different than the other 2. He’s still cynical but he’s comedic with it. He’s very similar to Michelangelo and is constantly breaking the 4th wall. He also has some of the best one liners in the series. Even though he’s different from the other 2 I like him and later on in the series they tried to make him more aggressive than the others.

 

Raphael 2003: This Raph was like the Wolverine of the series, Always loved to fight and was constantly training. Also he was such a badass and Mikey called him their secret weapon. He also has that tough Brooklyn accent which I loved they gave the 1st Live Action movie one.


Raphael 2012: This Raph has his ups and his downs to me. On one hand he is one of if not the strongest fighter(s) on the group and is a great asset to the team. But on the other hand this Raph can just be a straight up jerkish bully sometimes and I hate that. I mean some episodes he is a straight up DICK. If he’s angry I get it but I don’t like him picking on his bros the way he does. I know he is growing as a character so I can’t fault him too much and he’s becoming more and more likable as the series goes on. Especially when he was helping Leo after his injury. He does care for his brothers a lot so I still like the dude.

Winner: 2003 Raph because he’s just a badass and he’s a lot like the 1st live action movie raph which was my favorite incarnation of him. Plus he got away with this……

OH NO HE DIDNT!!

Date Watched: January 1st, 2016.

Rating: 4/5

Review: So, I’m really cynical about vampires and their presence in modern culture. 

I wish you luck in making me believe that Breaking Dawn Part II was the best film of them all (coming from someone who read all of the books out of pure curiosity AND was quite literally dragged to all the movies AND had to hear everyone say this, it was by far the worst in the series… but I digress). After Twilight, Mortal Instruments, and all the others that I’ve failed to mention, why would Vampire Academy be any different?

Well, folks, the simple answer is this: I never felt that Vampire Academy tried to be bigger than it was and it was entertaining enough to make me want to keep watching.

Is it the most successful vampire movie to date? Definitely not. It’s actually probably the least successful, seeing as the movie has only made around fifteen million worldwide and the budget was reportedly thirty million (IMDB). 

However, it’s the most amusing and entertaining to watch out of some that have been released in recent years.

Not only does the movie have some of the best one-liners I’ve ever heard, but Zoey Deutch was fantastic as Rose. The wrong person could have made the humor felt forced, but she pulled it off. Everyone was cast pretty accurately compared to the book (which I also read out of curiosity) and as far as I can remember, the plot was barely changed at all.

That’s not to say that I never rolled my eyes, because there were some eye rolls thrown in there.

Some of the lines and readings are absolutely nauseating (two particular people come to mind, but I won’t point them out seeing as if you see the film, you’ll figure it out on your own). The effects lacked in areas, but it wasn’t enough for me to not be entertained by the film. 

Some noteworthy moments of the movie:

—“Dimitri: Better to beg forgiveness than ask permission
Rose : Yeah, and I put a sedative in her ass.”

—”Rose: How do you say “what a dick” in Russian?”

—”Rose: God, the female - especially one who lives off of blood and magic - is going to have her mood swings. It is never the girl’s fault, even when it is the girl’s fault. No one ever explained that to you?”

—”Rose: Are you nuts? What are you thinking? Trust me, you do not want to get a nose job in Montana!”

—”Rose:  Sorry, It’s not like the drinking of blood is your main source of sustenance. Oh wait, that’s exactly what it is.”

I feel like the upcoming movie Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is going to be very similar to this film, but I’m not sure if the response will be the same yet. Oh, and if you’re sitting there thinking, “Well, if I had a couple of bucks to throw away on another movie, I’d watch it…” Guess what?

It’s available on Netflix.

If you’ve got an hour and forty-four minutes to do something and you’re curious, I say go for it.

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

Spy films have come a long way. In the 60’s they were all the rage, with James Bond leading the charge. They were fun, cheesy, over the top and unrealistic. But audiences loved them. Then, towards the end of the 90’s and the early 2000’s, spy films became far less common. The Bourne Identity brought a gritty realism to the genre that not many had done before. And then even James Bond followed suit in the 2006 reboot Casino Royale. With the focus of the genre being suspense, realism and grounded action, that sense of wonder and overall swagger had been lost. One film now means to fix that issue, as Kingsman: The Secret Service, a bloody, vulgar R-rated take on the genre, pushes to prove that both R-rated action film and an old-school spy thriller can be successful. Does it prove that old school is the best school, or is this mission a failure that should be denied of ever happening?

Kingsman: The Secret Service follows Eggsy, a young street-wise London kid. Upon being bailed out of jail by an old friend of his father’s, Eggsy learns that this man, named Harry Hart (played by Colin Firth), is a member of a government espionage division called “Kingsman”. The Kingsman are the best-trained and elite spies in the entire world, and Harry now wants to recruit Eggsy to become one of them. Now, Eggsy must overcome the most grueling training process ever created, and help Harry take down a megalomaniacal billionaire tech developer from killing off most of the world’s population. It’s an old school plot with modern twists and it fits together quite nicely. The film does a good job never going too far with the cheese, while still being both over the top and serious when it needs to.

Taron Egerton plays Eggsy, and he’s actually a really solid lead. I’m never sure how much I’m going to like street kids in films, they’re really hit and miss for me. Some I like, some annoy me to death. Luckily, Eggsy is a really well developed one and Egerton plays him to a T. He’s charming, he’s witty, and he’s a pretty normal kid who just happens to be good enough to become this insane spy badass. Egerton does a great job in all aspects though. He’s funny when needed, emotional and relatable other times. He’s a great lead and I hope he gets more work after this.

Colin Firth plays Harry, a.k.a. Galahad. Harry is the old-school, James Bond type badass. He’s really polite and proper and respectful, but then Firth proves he can hold his own because then he turns around and does some really impressive fight scenes. Liam Neeson is not the only Oscar-winning drama actor turned aged badass anymore. Firth is really lovable, and I’m so glad to hear that he wants to come back for a sequel. Overall, he’s a really strong co-lead and I can’t wait to see more of him.

Samuel L. Jackson plays Richmond Valentine, the villainous tech developer. Jackson does a really odd performance in this movie. He’s really likable and funny, because he pretty much just plays Samuel L. Jackson as always and it’s great. But he has a weird lisp in the movie that really threw me off and kind of got annoying towards the end. Overall though, he was a strong villain with some great menacing moments and some good jokes.

The rest of the cast is really good too. Mark Strong as Merlin is surprisingly very funny, Michael Caine pretty much just plays himself and does well regardless. Sophia Cookson who plays Eggsy’s co-agent-in-training was really good, despite how little she got to do. Mark Hamill has a really good supporting role that was fun to watch, and Sophia Boutelle as Gazelle, the amputee henchman for Valentine who is equipped with swords for legs, is really awesome in that Oddjob style like in Goldfinger. It’s just a really solid cast and I’m glad it has as much talent as it does. It makes ‘Kingsman’ pretty unforgettable.

The action scenes in this movie are some of the best blockbuster entertainment we’ve had in a few years. Every fight or shoot-out is insanely well choreographed, they’re all exciting and fun. Many have a lot of good visual jokes or one-liners throw in to make it feel like that old-school style the film has going for it. And the production value on both these fights and the whole film looks really top notch. You can tell this was a film that everybody brought their A-game to, and it makes the film much better than it may have turned out without such a dedicated cast and crew.

In the end, Kingsman: The Secret Service is an excellent old-school spy romp. It respects a lot of traditions in the genre, but isn’t afraid to be more mature with the gore and language. It’s entertaining as all hell, it deserves every bit of praise it gets, and definitely deserves a sequel. I would buy this at full price in a heartbeat, you definitely aren’t wasting your money with this. The cast is great, the action is fun, and it all looks really polished and vibrant. It’s an amazing film that will probably go down as a classic, and it’s undoubtedly still one of the best of 2015. If you have any doubts about it, give it a watch and I promise you you will not be disappointed. Now, we just need 20th Century Fox to greenlight the sequel and we’ll be all good. I just don’t want this being the next sequel-less masterpiece like Dredd.
