Samurai Jack: XCII Review

Originally posted by filmofil

Hey guys, Kris here, and man am I stocked to see new episodes on my TV guide again so let’s skip the small talk and get into the newest episode of Samurai Jack!

First off, the animation is just gorgeous. I’m so happy that Gendy chose to keep the original art style and only make slight changes, but for the most part the animation is just as gorgeous as before.

Next is tone, with the show being TV-14 compared to it’s original rating back in the day (TV-Y7) I expect to see a darker story but I’m relieved that it won’t be overly dark. I don’t want the show to be filled with swear words or be too graphic, but with that being said, this is a darker show and man does it show it right off the bat. First we some woman give birth to apparently Aku’s children and we see these children being trained to of course kill Jack.This already sounds like some kind of fucking cult. 

While the daughters of Aku is interesting what I really want to talk about is Jack himself… the dude has seen better days. As we all know about 50 years has past since the previous season, and because of Aku sending him into the future, that somehow stopped him from aging. I recently marathoned the previous seasons and seeing some of those episodes made me think just how bad Jack has got it, 50 years of dealing just utter bullshit after bullshit will drive any man insane. Especially now since he’s been getting visions all the people he thinks let down.

Not only that but we learn that at some point he lost his sword and apparently not even Aku knows this considering the bounty hunter wasn’t aware of this either. What exactly happened I’m not too sure but it is connected to this figure Jack keeps seeing.

I’m guessing this guy is the reason Jack lost his sword, mostly due to the fact that every time Jack sees him, he’s just terrified. Not only that but every time he shows up he’s surrounded by some green fog, the same color pallet when Jack lost his sword.

All in all, I love this episode, it felt both familiar and fresh. With the slightly updated yet practically the same art and animation style, kick-ass action sequences and much darker tone but still keeping it a bit comedic, this is a primce example of how who should do a returning series *cough*powerpuffgirls*cough*. And once the iconic ending image popped up I was both happy and frustrated. Happy see them using that old image again and frustrated because I WANT MORE. Waiting each week is going to be killer but it’s just great to have Jack back so until then see you guys next week PEACE :)

WATCH OUT

P.S. I don’t know what they’re called but I hope we see them again, not going to lie I find them rather adorable, especially how they communicate.

I love your headcanons/drabbles! <3 Could I request some Ken headcanons? There's not enough stuff of the smol cookie nerd

Ayyeee thanks anon! I’m not sure how long this has been in here,, um about a few days- not v long but. Enjoy.

  • When Ken was younger he wouldn’t be afraid or insecure to cry infront of Candy.
  • Has a comfy sweater collection
  • Loves turtlenecks!
  • Will wear socks and sandals, doesn’t get he big deal about it.
  • Uses 90’s kids words a lot like “yikes” or “wowie”
  • Is that one student that reminds the teacher of the homework.
  • Still jam packed with all types of sweets.
  • Smells like cake icing and cookies
  • Scared of needles
  • PBS kids was his channel.
  • When he was younger he thought that being able to watch shows rated as ‘TV-Y7′ was so cool.
  • Was either 2 or 3 inches smaller than Candy when they were younger.
  • Cannot flirt at all, doesn’t think it’s ‘true love’ to do that.
  • Can’t stand when his hair gets messed up. Don’t mess up his hair.
  • Cried a lot back in elementary school and wishes he didn’t
  • Brushes his teeth often, scared of getting orthodontic headgear
  • Didn’t realize he had a crush until after Candy left
  • Very gentle with animals, hates hurting them.
  • Hates hurting anyone tbh, he can’t bring himself to cause someone else pain.
  • Hates going to the dentist - just no.
  • Was v short compared to Candy back in middle school.
  • Can slay anyone at playing the flute
  • Charlie and the chocolate factory was his favorite movie
  • Calls Lucy ‘Lucille’ out of spite, she doesn’t get it though
  • MBTI type would be INFP-T.
  • Gets sick easily, it’s just open the window and the house and the boy has a cold.
  • Wore over-sized suspenders as a kid, it was adorable.
  • Has gotten suspended for taking candy from Lucy before - that was Candy’s.
  • Likes reading about insects.
“Just nuts and bolts...”

I love how meta this line is because back in the previous seasons, Jack had to only kill robots because of the TV-Y7-FV rating and never ever actually kill a person aside from wound or knock out. That very thing is addressed this season when he was forced to kill one of the Daughters of Aku.

Taking what was meant to be a content restriction due to an age rating and making it part of Jack’s Season 5 character arc was brilliant.

THE TWISTED TALES OF FELIX THE CAT (1995)

an animated series starring the character Felix the Cat, produced for television by Film Roman. It aired from September 16, 1995 to November 25, 1997 on CBS. Unlike the original Felix the Cat shorts, this version was given a TV-Y7 rating due to moments that may be too scary for children under 7 years old. The first season consists of 13 episodes and the second season consists of 8 episodes.

The show was a modern take on the original 1958 series produced by Otto Messmer’s former assistant, Joe Oriolo. His son, Don Oriolo, was involved in the creation of this series as well. In many ways, the show reverts to the silent era of shorts with surreal settings and offbeat character depictions. Felix is also more like his original mischievous adult form, rather than the young and innocent depiction from the 1930s, 1950s and the 1988 film Felix the Cat: The Movie. It does, however, contain some elements from the 1950s series such as Felix’s Magic Bag of Tricks and the character Poindexter. The series used Fleischer Studios style.

We come to what’s probably Felix’s least known and least beloved series. which is REALLY REALLY unfortunate to me personally. Not only is this my favorite Felix related incarnation but’s it’s also one of my  TOP 10 FAVORITE CARTOONS OF ALL TIME. No joke, The Twisted Tales of Felix the Cat is one of my favorite cartoons. I could watch it at any time time, at any episode and totally enjoy myself.

In my opinion it’s the perfect mixture of everything that made Felix the Cat fun, funny, and a standout character. The world and characters are surreal, Felix himself is a weird but lovable scrapped who gets into so many bizarre circumstances. It definitely feels like they threw in all of the best traits Felix developed over all the decades of life, and let it all just run wild. Heck, they even brought in his Magic Bag of Tricks on occasion. 

This series just gets me so psyched because  it feels like a celebration of not just everything that made Felix great but just what made cartoons over the years great. It has the imaginative weirdness that was rampant in black & white era theatrical cartoons, the wacky situational comedy-like nature of early television cartoons, and the zany comedy that ran rampant in the early 1990′s.

Unfortunately you can probably guess one of the reasons why this show kind of didn’t succeed.

Remember that thing I always said? Ren & Stimpy was very popular in the early 90′s and the influence is quite apparent here.  That’s always been Felix’s luck I’m afraid, they try to have him work whatever the current trend is and it never pans out. That’s a big shame in this case because this cartoon is really dang good. It manages to stand on its own two feet, even against the many other wacky, surreal comedies that were popular in cartoons of the time.

Business in the Front, Party in the Back  [Klance one-shot]

a couple days ago i asked the lovely @klanced for a few klance prompts, and one of them was “Lance straight up dying over Keith in a ponytail”.  So here we are.  My first Klance fic, so feedback would be greatly appreciated!

A03 link [warning for cussing]

The day Lance hit the wall was the day he stopped hating Keith’s mullet.

Honestly, what direction but downhill was there to go when a goddamn mullet - the 7th deadly sin - slowly but surely squeaked its way out of the rotation of focal points of Keith Insults?

Or, for that matter, when it became another addition to (terrifyingly) fast-growing pile of Keith assets, right next to those ridiculously tight pants?

Because, shit, those things did not leave much to the imagination. And that wasn’t to say the imagination didn’t work with what it had.

But Lance digressed. Back to the mullet, and corresponding shift of opinion that had been happening these days. To Lance’s utmost chagrin, he almost, almost - damn, it was hard to admit even in thought - almost enjoyed hanging out with the Red Paladin.

Bryke's Subtextual Take On 'Girl Love' in "Long Live the Queen"

A Korrasami Meta Analysis (handled with the deft touch of an Equalist glove)

Before I go any further, I need to state that this is a wild, way-out-there meta analysis satire. I will defend Korrasami like no other ship in fictional existence BUT this post is not meant to be read as an argument for the ship. (That’s my “Word of God” part anyway. If you want to run with this post in a “Death of the Author” sort of way then all the power to you!)

anonymous asked:

How do you feel about Ford's time in the portal, now that we know what happened to him there?

I have several opinions:

  • Ford listened to Brittney Spears, MCR, Evanescence, and Greenday in addition to Smashmouth and no one can tell me otherwise.
  • Ford is a huge dork who survived thanks to several alien moms and after thirty years can’t fire a weapon with his eyes open
  • Jheselbraum is rad as fuck
  • Bill can eat an entire bag of dicks
  • I enjoy that while Hirsch focused on the more humorous/TV-Y7 aspects of Ford’s time in the portal, he still left enough gaps for fans to come up with their own theories and universes (that was always my favorite part of the Gravity Falls fandom)
  • I hope someone gave Ford a hug
  • Ford was an interdimensional drifter who relied on squatting and sleeping on people’s interdimensional couches for shelter and food. (Except possibly on Lottocron 9 where he could conceivably have rolled some dice and picked a card and gotten a mansion). Quit writing post portal Ford like he has no idea what being homeless is like.
  • If ParallelWorld!Stanley is dead then ParallelWorld!Fiddleford is really fucking good at hiding it because Stanford “Oh shit my brother is alive but amnesiac time to Be Heartbroken” Pines would have been fucking devastated if the idea of that happening to Alpha!Stanley was brought to his attention.
  • Ford had a fantastic reason to punch Stan in the face because if Stan had waited even a few minutes then Bill would be dead and Weirdmaggedon could have been averted. An explanation, however, would have been nice.
  • Ford had a shitty reason to punch Stan in the face because 1) Bill has total domination in the Nightmare Realm he can just turn the quantum destabilizer into a swarm of bees and 2) even if Ford did manage to defeat Bill before he turned the quantum destabilizer into a swarm of bees where the heck is he gonna go afterwards? What comes next? How’s he gonna get back home?
  • If Stan had gotten briefly distracted before initiating the startup sequence and the portal wound up opening thirty seconds later than it did, then it would have opened after Bill was killed and Ford would have been ecstatic that Stan opened the portal cause it would mean he got to go home after defeating Bill.
  • Ford spent an unknown number of years dealing with Bill possessing his body at random before he met Jheselbraum.

A critical examination of “Endgame” (1x12)

or “Why I find the Book 1 finale very disappointing”

There are many people who love the finale of Book 1. I’ve read a lot more praise for it than I’ve read criticism. I understand why people love it. There are a number of awesome scenes in this episode. I, however, don’t like it very much. In fact, it’s one of my least favorite episodes.

I want to be clear that I’m not trying to convince others to hate on it. I am simply laying it out here why I find “Endgame” so disappointing.

I thought it would be easy to write this post. After all, it’s just one episode, and I already knew which elements really irked me. However, I wanted to try to understand what was going on, and through making that effort, it only made me more frustrated with the episode.

I am not going to lament on the lost potential of the Equalist plot, express disappointment that Amon is a waterbender, or make suggestions on how certain issues could have been better served if they carried over into Book 2. My criticisms focus mostly on “Endgame” itself and how it works as the finale of Book 1.

This is a very long post – a much longer post than I ever expected to compose. I walk you through the entire episode. It’s not that I hate every minute of “Endgame” that I do this. I do it to help keep things in context.
