    Amy Hughes (EP)

    November 21, 2017 by AustinDR

    For starters, I guess I'll start with an apology. I'm sorry if I have ever gotten annoyed by frequently being asked questions on the PE/CM trope. Having a long history with the trope, I sometimes forget that not everyone would have an experience with the trope. With a villain having "no redeeming traits," while it's a part of the criteria, it doesn't mean that the antagonist in question automatically qualifies. For instance, in my favorite book series, Dork Diaries, MacKenzie Hollister is frequently described as being remorseless. However, she will never qualify because her actions amount to villainous bullying, theft, and blackmail. Lest the author makes MacKenzie into a homicidal maniac, she will never count. Or a sociopath: again, just b…

    Thor: Ragnarok (Review)

    November 20, 2017 by AustinDR

    Another good film for the MCU. Thor: Ragnarok is the 17th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this time concerning Thor trying to prevent Ragnarok - a foretold future event that would culminate in the destruction of Asgard. Things get even more complicated when it is revealed that thousands of years ago, Odin had a daughter named Hela; together, they conquered the Nine Realms, but her ambitions grew to a point that she was cast out by her father, and was subsequently erased from Asgardian history. Well, almost. But now she's back, so it is up to Thor to try to stop this formidable foe.

    So, I didn't like the previous sequel Dark World, mostly because it came off as forgettable, and the main bad guy was very bland. In fact, he's up there f…

    Justice League (Review)

    November 20, 2017 by AustinDR

    The DCEU....admittedly, I don't really care for these films. For those unaware, the DCEU is an attempt by Warner Brothers to have their own cinematic universe to compete with Disney's MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). The DCEU (DC Extended Universe) began with Man of Steel, a movie that I personally did not like. Then there was Batman v. Superman which was just outright terrible. The tone was conveyed poorly, characters like Wonder Woman were only there for the sake of being there, Doomsday had no reason to be in this movie, etc. There was Suicide Squad which had characters that you didn't feel compelled to care for, the plot was confusing, Leto's take on the Joker only appeared for about five minutes....Wonder Woman was actually pretty goo…

    Dr. Alexander Thorkel (EP)

    November 16, 2017 by AustinDR

    Probably will just continue making blogs about some of the effort posts I've done over at TV Tropes. Said candidate had been approved, and is listed under A to E of Monster/Film:


    Here is my next candidate, this time from Dr. Cyclops. I had originally seen the candidate in question being removed from the YMMV page because it was an unapproved entry, so I decided to shed some light on this one. Dr. Cyclops is a 1940 science fiction film concerning two biologists receiving a request from one of their colleagues stating for them to come to his laboratory that is hidden away in the jungle. They don't realize what they had just gotten themselves into...


    Dr. Alexander Thorkel is a biologist who had spent two years conducting research in a Peruvian jun…

    Takada (EP)

    November 10, 2017 by AustinDR

    Another example of how an EP is done, this time on my most recent candidate, Takada.


    The work is Region. Region is a horror manga written by Fujisama Yuki. The manga concerns Chief Togakushi, a widowed engineer who is called to inspect a new wind farm that is about to go into operation. Along with his lovestruck co-worker Asagiri, the two follow a guide into the basement to check on the generators. When they arrive, to their horror, they see that colonies of rats had taken roost there. And they're starving. Eventually, the rats escape, plunging Japan into a panic. Togakushi has two children -- Kanon a young girl who was broken by the death of her mother -- and Ryuuto, a young boy obsessed with bugs. Togakushi must race against the clock to save…
