Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men rewatch

Finally got around to review episode 21 (Rover) and episode 22 (Aces and Eights).

Episode 21 is a future episode, centering on Marrow. I don't like the episodes set in the future, I don't like Marrow and so obviously I didn't like this episode.

Episode 22 was okay, but only for more Wanda and Kurt stuff, this show's version of Gambt is too smarmy for my liking.

Sailor Mars

I just saw the trailer for Seventh Son

What in the hell was that? I mean, why would you do this to the Wardstone Chronicles books? It's like they only took the basic outline of the first book (The Spook's Apprentice) and then changed everything else to turn it into this generic looking fantasy action movie. At least the trailer says that it's only "inspired by the acclaimed series", except it doesn't tell you which series it actually is since the title of the movie is not the title of the series or even the first book.

One would think that a dark fantasy YA book series would try more to get the Harry Potter crowd and therefore keep it closer to the source material. Or did they not want another Percy Jackson on their hands? Anyway, I suggest people check out the books, there are an enjoyable and short read with a likable protagonist (who is 13 in the books, btw) and an interesting take on the whole witch hunter story.

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men re-watch episode 19 and 20

You can see my review here: Guardian Angel and Breakdown

I really hated the episode Guardian Angel because Angel is such a tool in that episode. Kinda had mixed feelings about Breakdown.

I made a new AMV



It's a X-Men Evolution AMV set to the song "Let's Dance" by Five. I made this because while re-watching Wolverine and the X-Men (review for episode 18 is here btw), I remembered how nice and dynamic the animation for X-Men Evolution was. Just look at those dance scenes.

May. 22nd, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men Episode 16 and 17 re-watch

You can read them here and here.

Episode 16 was a future episode, which I'm generally not very fond of and episode 17 is the most boring episode on the whole show, where Wolverine fights the Silver Samurai.

May. 10th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men Episode 14 and 15 re-watch

Reviews are here and here.

I thought episode 14 was okay and 15 was pretty good.

Apr. 28th, 2013

Sailor Mars

A Monster in Paris

Probably not the best animated movie ever made, but definitely worth a watch, at least for the music. Sadly my Blue Ray disc did not have the original French audio, so I bought the soundtrack.

Here's the best song and, in my opinion, the best scene of the whole movie.

Apr. 25th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men Episode 13 re-watch

You can read the review here: Battle Lines

This episode has the return of Rogue to the X-Men and more leadership fail for Wolverine.

Apr. 19th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men Episode 12 re-watch

You can read the review here: Excessive Force

In which I get mad at Wolverine again for being a shit leader and hypocrite.

Apr. 11th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men Episode 11 re-watch

You can read the review here: Past Directions

Oh, who doesn't love more Wolverine whitewashing. (Hint: Me)

Apr. 3rd, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men episode 10 re-watch

You can read the review here: Greetings from Genosha

I admit, this was the episode I was looking forward too the most since it's the Nightcrawler/Scarlet Witch episode.

Mar. 27th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men episode 9 re-watch

You can read the lastest review here: Future X

Not much to say about this episode, it was kinda boring.

Mar. 18th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men re-watch episode 8

You can read my review here: Time Bomb

I almost liked this episode until I realized that it was full of stupid.

Mar. 12th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men Re-Watch Episode 7

You can read my thoughts here: Wolverine vs the Hulk.

Surprisingly, I liked this episode more than I thought.

Mar. 5th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men Rewatch Episode 6

And the latest re-watch: X-Calibre

Contain lots of Nightcrawler goodness and cameos.

Feb. 26th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men Episode 5

You can read my recap of the 5th episode here: Thieves Gambit

Gambit makes his first appearance and Wolverine proves again why he fails as a leader.

Feb. 17th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men re-watch Episode 4

My commentary for Episode 4: Overflow

It's the Storm episode and sadly her only moment in the spot light in the whole series.

Feb. 11th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men re-watch episode 3

You can see my reaction here: Hindsight Part 3

This concludes the opening arc of the show and sets up Wolverine as the leader, despite the fact that he shouldn't be.

Feb. 3rd, 2013

Sailor Mars

Next Wolverine and the X-Men review

Here is my review to the second episode: Hindsight Part 2

I guess I'm starting to notice more and more things I didn't like about the show, because I bitched here quite a bit, especially about how they try to force Wolverine into the leader role.

Jan. 28th, 2013

Sailor Mars

Wolverine and the X-Men

I finally finished making icons of all 26 episodes for the show. You can find them all here by following this link: Wolverine and the X-Men icons

Since I was done with making icons and the community for the show is pretty much dead, I suggested a re-watch of the show to get things into motion again. So here is my commentary for the first episode: Hindsight Part 1

Sailor Mars

Guess we're all still here...

... so let's watch this remix of apocalyptic movies.

ARGH! What the hell photobucket?!

So I just saw the new design for photobucket... and it's awful! Uploading and posting pictures has become so much difficult, not to mention it tends to skip pictures while uploading. And there is almost no room to actually see your pictures in the overview, because now we have the stupid site loading instead of individual pages. The ads also take up way too much space.

I smell a shipping war in the air

Why? Because of this new clip for the new TMNT show that was released:



And since Casey will be in the series too, I just know there will be people fighting over who April should be with. (I personally suspect most people will ship April/Don and then get pissed over the unavoidable April/Casey ship that'll become canon.)

Argh, why Nickelodeon, why do this? I know that the 2003 series also had Donny crushing on April, but it only started in season two and even then it was just a little bit. I can already see the enraged fangirls when April will ultimately break Donny's heart, calling her all kinds of names. Why can't she just be their friend?

And why am I so sure that April will end up with Casey? Because they always end up together in canon (well, not the old cartoon, but April didn't have a love interest in that one). I highly doubt they're going to change that and go for the interspecies romance instead.

I fail at baking

I recently saw a recipe for little baked chicks, made from yeast dough. I figured that would be easy enough for me to make. Here is what they are supposed to look like:

Since I don't like raisins, I decided to make the eyes out of sugar pearls.

The nightmare inducing result can be found behind the cut.
