    So, Doki Doki....

    July 1, 2018 by AustinDR

    So I was looking through some of my groups on Facebook, and I had received a notification in my newsfeed about a father accusing an online game of leading his 15-year-old son into committing suicide, alleging that the game was linked to his mobile phone, and he would receive notifications about it throughout the night. The game in question is called "Doki Doki Literature Club" which had actually released last year and has since been downloaded 2,000,000 times. While most of you may know about this game already, I'm sure there are a few who are unaware about the basic premise.

    Doki Doki Literature Club! is an online visual novel revolving around four girls - Sayori, Yuri, Natsuki, and Monika - and your main objective is to woo the girls, parti…

    Incredibles 2 (Review)

    June 25, 2018 by AustinDR

    14 years ago was when the Pixar film The Incredibles was released. A story about a family of superheroes living in a world where superheroes were banned and made to relocate is what the first film delved into as well as the repercussions of such a banning. I will admit that the first film wasn't my favorite of the Pixar films, namely because I had actually watched the film twice in my lifetime: back in 2004 and 2008. That's not to say that it was a terrible film, but I didn't really get all of the love that most critics would give it. Out of all the Pixar films, I knew that the one that was a shoe-in for getting a sequel was the Incredibles. But what I did not expect was that it would take about 14 or so years for a sequel to be made.

    Worst Animated Fathers

    June 17, 2018 by AustinDR

    1. Clay Puppington: Yes. This asshole of a dad. I admit that I had neglected to watch Moral Orel when it aired on Adult Swim, namely because it seemed to be a bad parody of clay-animated shows such as Davey and Goliath. I have since appreciated the series for delving into the darkness of organized religion as well as the utter hypocrisy of its believers. Clay to me is the epitome of all that a father should not be. He is a self-centered, cynical, pathetic excuse for a human being. Even when we have some semblance of sympathy for Clay, he immediately pitches that off of his shoulder and returns to being an ass. In season one, he was more of the parody of the upright patriarch who had his moments of being played for laughs. Come the finale for s…

    Worst Mothers

    May 13, 2018 by AustinDR

    1. The Beldam: Obviously, this woman is the epitome of what can be considered a terrible mother. The Beldam is the main antagonist of the novella Coraline by Neil Gaiman and the film adaptation. The Beldam - or the Other Mother - spies on children through the use of a doll fashioned after her intended target, and makes the Other World pleasing to them until they eventually desire more and more. So she gives them the chance to stay forever with her if they were to sew buttons over their eyes. At that point, their lives are gradually eaten away by this demonic monster until she grows bored of them and discards them like used toilet paper. The novel only accentuates how repulsive the Beldam truly is by mentioning that she buried her own mother…

    So I had noticed that there seems to be a tidbit too many articles under the "Tragic" category. Though it's not really much of a surprise as tragedy can be subjective to anyone. At most, I do feel that the work itself needs to show that the villain in question is tragic, and how it reflects on them (i.e. a Freudian excuse). Take villains like Koba or Lots-O' Huggin' Bear. While both antagonists have tragic backstories (being experimented on by humans for the former; being replaced by their owner for the latter), the films make it abundantly clear that whatever happened to them in the past by no means justifies what they have done in the present such as Koba killing other apes. If he were only interested in killing humans, that would be und…
